Making sense of it all – Part 3

We conclude today our three-part series:

Life's Gifts and Life's Tragedies - Making sense of it all

So many 'bad' things happen to good people. What's "up" here? What's this all about? How does the spiritual student make sense out of Life's gifts and Life's tragedies?

As it happens (there are no coincidences in the Universe) I am hard at work now on the biography of Barbara Marx Hubbard, a futurist and visionary of the first rank, and a woman who is changing the way we think it is to be human. In the chapter I am just finishing, I tell the story of how Barbara found out about the life-threatening (and, ultimately, life-ending) illness of her son, Wade. I should like to dip into a little of that writing here, because it is right on point....

Okay...from the book, then...which is titled THE MOTHER OF INVENTION: The Legacy of Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Future of You....


OCTOBER 2005:

Barbara is being driven by a dear friend, Carolyn Anderson, to Palm Springs, where she is to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Global New Thought, and will deliver a major address in the form of her acceptance speech.

It's a beautiful day and Barbara is enjoying the drive and the good conversation with Carolyn. Their lively exchange is interrupted by Barbara's cell phone.

"Mom, it's Wade."

"Wade! How are you, darling? I'm just on my way to Palm Springs to-"

-"Mom, I've received some interesting news."

Barbara does not miss the concern in her child's voice. "About what, sweetheart?" There was the slightest pause. "About what?"

"I've just been diagnosed with a major tumor." Barbara caught her breath. "They say it's fatal, but I don't believe it."

"Oh, Wade...where is it?"

"It's a brain tumor, Mom. They call it glioblastoma."

Barbara did not know it then, but in the medical profession they describe this condition with three words: Death Upon Diagnosis. Untreated, the average patient lives three months. With treatment, one to two years. Wikipedia says that the single most prevalent symptom is a progressive memory, personality, or neurological deficit due to temporal and frontal lobe involvement. Shortly, Wade began exhibiting all three. At this point, though, none of that was happening. Wade sounded perfectly fine on the other end of the phone-and very determined.

"I want that tumor out," he said.

Barbara told him that of course she would support him, and do everything in her power to see him victorious in the battle that both knew lay ahead.

Wade hung up and Barbara told her friend at the wheel what she'd just heard. "Oh, dear," Carolyn continued her drive in a deeply pensive mood. Within hours Barbara was to speak on the potential of humanity, and now she would do it knowing that her own son was threatened with death. If he had been in any immediate danger she would have canceled the appearance and raced to his side. But this was not the case, and they both knew it. So she pushed ahead and made the presentation-though what was anticipated as a light-hearted and thoroughly joyous occasion became for Barbara a very challenging evening.

She did not elaborate in her talk about Wade's circumstance, but she re-framed her remarks in the context of tragedies that are occurring in the lives of so many people in so many ways, at the same time that so many new possibilities are being born.

"Concurrent realities, I call them. They create the terrible dichotomies within which so many people now live," she told her audience. "The only way that anyone could hold a positive vision of the future would be to see our present-day circumstance in spiritual terms."

She paused for a moment, clearing emotion from her throat. "Many are dealing on this day with tragedy, pain, and suffering. And life invites us to call up the deepest faith, an inner `knowing,' that crisis precedes transformation, that problems are evolutionary drivers, and that there is nothing that happens that does not have a greater meaning."

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

What Barbara told her audience that night has struck me ever since she shared it with me. It echoes for me the wisdom I found in Conversations with God. It can be very useful for us to see that we are "brightening" and "burning" at the same, as I wrote in my analogy here last week. In that previous installment I asked:

"Can a flame be said to be suffering because it is extinguishing itself even as it illumins? Each illumination of the flame is the result of its own `burning up.' Is the burning up, then, less perfect than the illumination?"

The truth is, we are living (just as Barbara says) "concurrent realities."

Even as our flame burns to extinction, we brighten everything around us. CwG says, "Pain is pain. `Suffering' is our thought about it." When we see the events of our lives as All leading to our own evolution and the evolution of our species, we begin to, as CwG says, "see the perfection."

This is another thing that it is important to remember. We are not only "evolving" our Selves, we are "evolving" the entire human race. What we are doing, we are doing not only for us, but for every other living member of our species. What we are going through, we are going through not only for us, but for all other people. We are creating "memes," we are producing data, we are sending information into the pool of collective consciousness from which every sentient being extracts its knowingness. I want to speak more about this next week, because this idea of us all working for the rest of humanity is not one that is widely discussed or explored, but I think it should be.

For now, let me end this three-part series with this observation: Everything "bad" that is occurring---from the earthquake in Chile to the terrible explosion in the mine in West Virginia---is part of a Larger Process by which All of Life evolves. I know that it is very difficult to see that "silver lining" when you are one of the people whose husband or wife or child died in one of those tragedies...and so I also want to talk next week or in future weeks just ahead about the process of grieving, and how that can be affected and facilitated by moving to higher and higher levels of spiritual awareness.

So we have much to discuss in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned. Until next we meet here, I would like to leave you with a bit of poetry from my wife, Em Claire...

Whatever It Was

It is your own life that you desire to cherish

like one brings the downy tuft of a Dandelion to the lips

blows softly

prays

to give everything away

keep

only what remains

of a life well lived

a life well loved

nourished and blessed

by the suns and by the soils

and by whatever it was

that

finally

Opened You.

Buttons Pushed

Last week I had a conversation with a good friend who shared a smart (and effective) exercise she uses to re-center herself when she gets her buttons pushed. As I listened to her describe the process, I knew I had to share it with you.

The next time you get your buttons pushed and you find yourself fixated on a negative experience, in the middle of a shame attack, or ruminating about something that's upset you, try this. Take out four pieces of paper and put one of the following four sentence stems on the top of each sheet:


1. I know I'm acting in alignment with my Highest Self when I...

2. The things that knock me out of alignment are...

3. When I'm out of alignment, the behaviors I engage in are...

4. The best actions for me to take to get back in line with my Highest Self are...

Once you have each sentence stem listed on a separate piece of paper, set aside twenty minutes to do a "mind dump" for each category. List lots of examples for each one. What do you do when you're at your best? How do you think? What actions do you take? What kinds of situations knock you off track? And then, what habits or behaviors do you engage in that keep you off track and feeling stuck? Finally, what do you do that helps you to re-center so you can get back in alignment with your Highest Self?

I intended to give you examples for each category but, after doing the exercise myself, I discovered that it's better not to have any preconceived ideas. They interfere with the process. So, let yourself go, write down whatever thoughts or ideas come to mind, and when you're done, I'm sure you'll learn something valuable about yourself. I know I did. I'll give you a way to share your experience in this week's Take Action Challenge. Have fun!

Take Action Challenge

Don't wait to get your buttons pushed before doing this exercise. Instead, give yourself the gift of twenty minutes and use what you learn to respond differently the next time you're faced with a challenge. I'll post each individual sentence stem on my facebook page this week and invite you to share your ideas. But, don't look until you've done the exercise yourself . And be sure to use what you learn to keep yourself empowered and on track! 

This week's video is of the first woman on Rolling Stone's Guitar God list. I may have shared it long ago in a newsletter, but it's worth seeing again. She's fantastic! If you loved the movie August Rush, you'll recognize the playing style. Enjoy! You'll find it here.

EMBRACE THE FOAM

 
EMBRACE THE FOAM
many waves of "LOVES PRESENCE" are approaching
the shores of time and non-time
yes...all of creation
is awakening to deeper levels
of knowing they are one
with the mystery of " all that is"...

this is a pro-cess
for that is what time is dear one
it is a process...
a process of re-discovery
it is an opportunity for your soul
to play within the sandbox of time
and believe that all you see here is
"real"...
nothing could be further from the truth...
so...why would we say
"embrace the foam"????
you see dear one
there in truth is nothing
but the crystal clear purity
of loves extension
within each wave...
yet thru the eyes of duality
there appears to be "foam"...
this foam that seems to take away
from the brilliant hues of green and blue
that are the truth of each crystal ...dancing
light carried within each wave...
the foam
is an "effect" of a belief
carried deep within you
that you are not
"that which you are"
they are effects
YOU have created
from the belief that you are not now
ONE WITH ALL THAT IS...
therefore
to know that truth again
and create from this sacred heart
one must first embrace and transmute
all that is unlike the truth of itself...
to know that "truth"
to experience that for yourself
one must embrace the foam
that each wave brings forth...
for in truth dear one
it is all illusion
yet you...playing in the sandbox of time
have believed that you were less than...
guilty...without love...
and those beliefs have created
all that appears unlike love in
this world that you think you see...!!!!!
so...to discover the true reality
that exists right beneath your feet
in all moments
one must transcend the "foam"
then..oh then...
each wave will simply be
our shared heart of love...
extending...creating
more and more of that which
love eternally is...
see each wave that seems to bring with it
some foam that clouds your view of love
as the grandest of gifts that i would bestow upon my
"self "
that i have projected into
this moment ...
yes...you are me...
i have projected myself
into time thru your earth body
so that i can rediscover
the wonder...the mystery...the omnipresent being
that i eternally am....
i am the mystery
that lives you...
why???
so i can expand eternally that
which I AM
that which you are...
so...
come into our heart this day
and make the choice to embrace
the foam with me
so that all that I AM
can be extended and known again
even in this dimension where
forgetting that which you are
has birthed such unreality...
embrace dear one...
embrace
~the voice of love"
flowing thru denisa...
if you would like to be added to this list
simply send me an email and i will add
you in love...
if this message has touched a place deep within you
feel free to send it along...
allow love itself to flow thru you
in each now moment this day......

Motherships to increase around Earth by 10%

Messenger Kris-Won
Translators: Steve, Gloria
A message from Commander Sohin of Alpha Spaceship
April 11, 2010

“To do this, in the next few hours we will begin the preparations so that the Mother Ships, medium and small, who were fulfilling their respective missions elsewhere in the galaxy, can temporarily leave their activities and immediately join our forces of Light already present in this quadrant of the Milky Way.”Greetings from Alpha Spaceship!

We are very happy to make an announcement, that is sure to make all of you tireless workers of the Light very happy. With the clear intention to increase the number of safety and defense mechanisms against the opposing forces of the Dark, the Galactic Federation of Light has decided to increase the number of Mother Ships and vessels of medium and small size, which will be added to those that were already orbiting the Earth or in fixed positions and dormant at some point in space. The number of orbiting and dormant spacecraft will be increased to a number equivalent to 10% more than those already available for protection, purification and upliftment of all fauna, flora and humanity of your beautiful blue planet.

To do this, in the next few hours we will begin the preparations so that the Mother Ships, medium and small, who were fulfilling their respective missions elsewhere in the galaxy, can temporarily leave their activities and immediately join our forces of Light already present in this quadrant of the Milky Way.

This decision was taken by the Council of the Intergalactic Confederation and transferred to the Galactic Federation of Light in order to become effective, who addresses this Milky Way galaxy in particular.

So, you can receive this news with great joy and satisfaction, since this can mean an advancement in time towards First Contact, which will result in an unquestionable acceleration of the process of Ascension for humanity on Planet Earth, as well as all of your related kingdoms: the devic, elemental, animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms. It is a matter worthy of celebration, that all souls will finally see their elevation to higher levels (as a tangible fact) even earlier than expected!

We would also like to inform you that the efforts of all those who are working towards the upliftment and awakening of all your brothers and sisters, amongst the humans on the planet who we are proud to consider our allies, have had much to do with this decision taken by the Elders Council. Your momentum and faithful dedication has successfully convinced its wisest members that the outside help you have been receiving is well deserved, as is the increase in the number of forces concerned.

So congratulations, because this increase in our forces of Light is due entirely to the hard work and the dedication of all of you, dear lightworkers of peace, love, and justice. You have managed to convince the finest minds of the local Universe that the timing for your Existential Upliftment, through your own merits, be advanced forward, which will more quickly sentence the fall of hegemony and control of the opposing forces of darkness upon you.

For the unstoppable advancing of the Light against the diminishing and regressive forces of Planet Earth! For our victory will be achieved after the combined efforts of you and us!

Peace, Love and Light

Optimism vs. Pessimism, and inbetween

I somehow always find something to think and feel about, during the waits at work, which are frequent. Todays point of pondering was my boss, who came to share with me his observations about my work behaviour. Not so much the quality of work, but the quantity. Now I arrive as the first, and consequently am also the first to leave in the afternoon. When I asked to work longer on wednesday, so I could leave an hour early on thursday, he had that confirmed in writing, so there would be no confusion. But, he had deduced from  my written status update every day that I sometimes left half an hour early (not true), had seen me keep a coffee break with the guys when I usually don't (happened once) and he neglected to notice that usually my lunch break is minimal, unlike my colleagues who take the full half hour....

And then when I told him I'd work half an hour longer from now on, he said he didn't want that, thus creating a conflict of free will between us.

On the train home I thought about all of it, and came to a few conclusions: My boss is one who lives to work, in early and home late. I am one who works to live, in early and home early, so my living day is longest and uninterrupted. That undoubtedly is our largest difference. Against that point is the fact we both desperately want to do what is right, which makes things worse actually.

I know I am a fanatical optimist. For me there's always something in the glass, even if it is just a few drops. Actually, when clearing away glasses from the table, the leftovers don't go into the sink, because even a little taste of something is sweeter than nothing. My boss, from experiencing, I'd estimate to be a guy who thinks supplies are limited. That does not mean he's greedy, but he does want to make sure everybody gets what is theirs. An admirable trait, but you can see how this clashes with the guy who thinks there always is plenty. If he says I do too little, I tend to do more, even though I'd rather not. But he, not wanting to make me do stuff I don't really want to do, won't hear of that. The situation is almost too futile for words, but yet they do arise.....

So, in order to not go against his free will, should I micromanage my workweek to make it EXACTLY 40 hours? Even that doesn't feel right. Since I Know there is always more, I have this need to give more, but work just happen to not be the area where I want to give more. unless it is needed. I'd much rather help people who can use it, than those who wish to pay me to help them. Guess I'm just weird that way!

I guess the best thing to do would be to finish that novel, score big, and make a living out of writing. That feels far more satisfactory.....

 

Love your Light,

Playing it Safe

I wrote an article a few days ago not realizing the stir it would have generated. The article was titled Enough with this “Blissed” out Agenda. There were many who felt inspired by it and there were a few who came at me as if I was the Antichrist. Those who were inspired were those who apparently had drawn the same conclusions as I had but had never really voiced it at least not in an open forum. I however voiced it yet this was not the first time. No I did not play it safe. I recognize that many are hungry for something else but when all that seem to be there is the same old same old then some will hang in there in silence and some will retreat quietly to themselves. One focus point of the article addressed the art of channeling and its followers. Those who were annoyed with the article seemed to be those who avid supporters of channeling or those who simply just did not agree for whatever their reasons were.


Before going further with this article let me say very clearly once again that all of it is valid this cannot be stressed enough. We are operating according to what we find essential and appropriate. This also does not mean that one is superior over the other or that one is lesser or greater or that one is chosen and the other not. The writing of that article was all by design and everyone who read it did so for a reason regardless of the opinion which was formed. There are no mistakes! It is advisable that one ask themselves why they were prompted to read it…and I must ask myself why I wrote it and why did I choose to put myself out there in this manner. Well I have certainly had to grow a thick layer of skin since then. Was I upset when I wrote the article? No. It is the reason for the humorous style in approaching the subject matter.

I have learned that to play it safe when it comes to my own evolution and what I am feeling inside is to deny myself the opportunity to grow by leaps and bounds… to avoid misinterpretation let me clarify that this statement applies to me; I cannot speak for anyone else. However I realize the manner in which playing it safe can limit one to a predictable set of possibilities. Predictability is a safe space, it is the familiar. It is why many find it challenging to let go of the past despite the challenges of the past, none the less the past provides a reference point for predictable outcomes. This creates the rewind effect. Every next moment is then created from the patterns of the past with slight variations to the experience. Others will say but “sometimes you need to play it safe” that could be defined perhaps as diplomacy. Yes I agree so it is then up to the individual to determine when to apply the brakes and when to hit the gas. 

We are all very protective of our holograms by that I mean our individual construct of reality. It is the reason why we are ready to defend it. Our holograms are guarded by our egos. We come out with heavy artillery as we are our own military for our reality; we must fight to protect it at all cost from all foreign invaders. We stand guard ready to zone in on that one word or that one look that signals opposition, this of course activates the defense system. We are programmed to survive; our survival program is running 24/7 it is why most of our society operates on a daily basis in the survival mode, the “fight or flight” mode. This entire process is duplicated in the overall hologram; countries fighting to defend themselves from foreign invaders. Again much misunderstanding has set off many wars. It’s always about a fight to defend our county, our land, our territory, our religious/spiritual beliefs, our culture and of course our planet from foreign invaders.  This is what we all do, again this is not a judgment this is an observation. Defend it if you will for in that moment you will see the very thing that I am speaking of. In truth and in fact what are we defending? Do we really know what it is that we are defending? Yet all of it is the nature of the experience on the planet. The entire spectrum of experiences navigates us through our goal in exploring the full range of possibilities in being human. So in other words being in survival mode or not being in survival mode is ok either way. We are experiencing the range according to what is needed. I too found myself wanting to defend myself, defend the article, but from what? Would I be defending myself from not playing it safe? The experience was what I created for myself. There was no hiding; it was a matter of owning my expression. It gave me new dimension into myself and where I go from here.

It is the physical part of us that does the reacting. These bodies are the vehicle designed for the processing of these experiences, it processes a chemical response; electrochemical impulses. These bodies are designed to “survive”, to protect itself from invaders. We have however turned over complete control to these bodies and so much of our thoughts and actions are run by the “survival” system in place. We are on autopilot. It is why our diets can destroy the body, it is because the frequency of the thought field and belief systems are of an equivalent vibration and therefore unable to override or penetrate the frequency patterns of the substance being ingested. We have stabilized foods to particular frequencies as can be observed in its form and its chemical makeup. We are unable to un-stabilize the molecular patterns to the realization that “there is no spoon, it is you that bends”. This is what we are all working towards regardless of the road we may take, regardless of what we are aware of. It is about coming to the realization that there is no spoon. This analogy is supported by breakthroughs in quantum physics. It is the observer that creates the illusion of the bending spoon. Here is a quote from The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot

“University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the Universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.  To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms. 

A hologram is a three-dimensional photograph made with the aid of a laser. To make a hologram, the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of a laser beam.  Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beams co-mingle) is captured on film.  When the film is developed, it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines.  But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam, a three-dimensional image of the original object appears.

The three dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms.  If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain the entire image of a rose.  Indeed if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs, every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole.”

It is clear to me that a number of people will agree to this realization yet in the same breath this will be contradicted. This recognition of this phantom/holographic design of reality clearly imposes the realization that creation is like a child playing hide and go seek with itself. Growing up basically like as an only child I understand what it is to play by myself and get awfully creative. I would pretend that the bushes were my children or that they were students in a classroom and I was the teacher. This is what we do, we are here to imagine the most outlandish experience possible but of course it has to be believable even for the creator of the experience, perhaps more so for the creator. It’s your game, your hologram. I am part of your hologram and you mine. I need you to be here at this time and so do you if you are engaged in any aspect of my experience and I in yours.

Let us further examine the importance of our individual creations. Let us first recognize that we can’t go “wrong” (for lack of another word) with what we create. You are obviously creating and making choices according to concepts and ideas which would support those decisions. Perhaps in order to create your world five years from now in this moment you will create an experience which will establish an outcome that will influence choices, options, decisions which will present themselves in the future. It is the way we roll into the next experience. The format of our world has always revolved around themes. Themes represent cycles. The New Age movement represents another theme in a particular period of human evolution/expansion. What happens however is due to the nature of our design we very easily become locked into these patterns and themes. We become comfortable once again with the familiar, this becomes just another programming. Repetition without dimension is programming; where one moves according to a specific set of guidelines without deviation. Such behavior or rituals are also essential in creating discipline and some guidelines and boundaries until one feels self assured enough to hold your own and deviate or add dimension to the disciplines. When one begins to trust him/herself the guidance unfolds from within. Whatever methods ou route we choose is then simply a stepping stone.  It is clear that we are privy to and have access to the full spectrum of creation which moves as streams of data. This data takes the shape of the visible world and that which is invisible to us according to the boundaries placed on ones perception.

It is evident that in the overall picture creation does not appear to play it safe otherwise we would have been limited or bridled in the creation of our holograms/private reality. It however has a blueprint or patterns of the design to be constructed. Everything is allowed so that we may have the full potential of the human experience. However for every action there is a reaction. What we create will bear fruit, the vibration of that fruit will determine much of one’s experiences. There is no good or bad there is only the vibration of the reaction. This is what we must contend with, the reaction.  Another point to keep in mind is that everything that we do we do for ourselves. We do it for the payoff; again this is not a good or a bad thing. I am writing this article because it is helping me to sort through some thoughts and ideas floating around in my mind as are all my articles and my book. We want to believe that we do it for others but in truth it is the feeling that is derived from it. Sharing becomes a great outlet. When we do things for our children or family or a stranger, it’s a great feeling! When we do things that are upsetting to others there is still a payoff; you needed to feel the way you feel after all was said and done. It does not matter what it is in the end we do it for ourselves. We get that same feeling when someone else does something that is what we call “shameful” underneath it all we feel elevated as we could not have done that, “we are not that kind of person”. How do I know this because I have had to examine myself and to my amazement I realize the payoff derived from all of it. I could say much about the role of victimization but we will save that for another day.  I don’t write or share the information because I believe that the world needs saving or that I have the answers I do because it frees me to be me regardless of the response. It allows me to experience my weaknesses and my strengths, it allows me to stand firmly in my ever expanding knowing and if along the way lives are changed because of it then I am ever so grateful for being allowed to be part of one’s evolution. My workshops and my lectures allow me the same experience. It is about my growth and that is how I contribute to this beautiful dance I own that it is about me and so I don’t have to hide or play it safe in most instances.

Most people play it safe because change is devastating. As I said previously we each have a model of reality to which we live our lives. When an attitude, people, place, thing or belief is shifted it becomes a chemical reaction. We are addicted to our lives it is how it is held together by the chemicals and hormones coursing through us.  Shifting anyone of these, even moving a chair causes adjustments to be made to our hologram or basically we may have to create a new hologram. This can be scary especially when your entire reality sits on the foundation of your spiritual belief structure, everything is supported by the other . Who will guide us? What will we do? We are wandering into uncharted territory, will there be a guide there waiting for me, who will be there to let me know that I am going the right way. Yes it can be a jolt but the one thing that I am famous for saying is that “no matter what, you will live”, even when you appear to die you live. Another aspect of thought that can certainly provide support is the realization that you are not running out of time as time is an essential illusion in order for us to have this linear experience. If there is no spoon; and at heart the universe is but a phantom then there is no such thing as distance and without the idea of distance there can’t be time or gravity for that matter. There is no here nor there, all that exists is this moment and everything else is a speculation. This is where the idea of “time” is formed in the speculation. Another quote from The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot  

“Bohm believes the reason subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion.  He argues that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something”.

During the writing of the Holographic Canvas did I know who David Bohm was or Gary Zucave author of the Dancing Wu li Masters, no I did not but as I wrote and it was time to form the book my inner guidance directed me to information that would support what I had come to understand on my own. I understood the nature of reality before knowing the words “quantum physics”. It was what I asked for, I asked to know from within myself and to my surprise scientists confirm this possibility in the above quote. It was necessary to have scientific information to support my own conclusion as it is evident that people are more confident of your claims. On the back of my book The Holographic Canvas it states “like the single cell of a plant our history is encoded in us”. We are the single cell and the entire plant all at once! We are streams of data! We are the information itself! We have access to all aspects of knowledge the question is whether we are in a space to trust that inner knowing or not. We most often must build ourselves up to that space of trust. It is for this reason that every step we take is our pathway leading to endless possibilities. To walk with no boundaries is to no longer fear ones actions for one has become aware of the significance of the reaction. So the question is do you play it safe or do you go for it.

Why Be Intuitive?

“Look...what you do is very interesting,” someone recently said to me. “But I have a life to live and I really can’t see myself as a professional psychic. Madame Ruby is just not me. It’s too airy-fairy.”

The fact is, recognizing and developing your intuitive abilities has many practical, down-to-earth uses in one’s life. Developing this ability is similar to the time you learned to read books: your goal was not to be a professional “book reader”, you just wanted to experience the thrill books have to offer.


Understanding and utilizing your intuitive abilities leads to a greater awareness of your Personal Power. A person in communication with their inner guidance system becomes more keenly aware of what is true for them and what is not. In today’s culture, we have access to more information than ever before. Much of this information is true for someone, but may not necessarily be accurate for you. It may work well for them, but it may not work for you at all. It is helpful to recognize the difference.  

Employing your intuitive abilities is like having software that filters your incoming email and places in the junk folder those pieces you’re not interested in; that data that doesn’t resonate with your truth. That handy piece of software is already available to you. It came as standard equipment, bundled with your hard drive. The art is finding it, turning it on and managing it.

“But wait a minute,” you say. “I don’t need intuition. My information comes from reliable sources; magazines, friends, books, the government. They wouldn’t mislead me.”   Well, most likely that’s correct. They may not be intentionally misleading you, but their truth may not be yours. When you utilize your intuitive abilities, whether that ability is clairvoyance, telepathy or clairaudience, you will recognize whether the information your friend gives you is aligned with your greater good long before you get entangled with it. Wouldn’t your life be a whole lot easier if you had that skill? This skill already exists within you...it’s just been hiding under a belief system that isn’t yours! It’s there for the asking.

You already are intuitive

Let me give you some additional examples of how this valuable ability may benefit you.

  •  You will find yourself in Present-Time vs. in the future or past. Because you are operating in Present-Time you are able to clearly see your options and the appropriate response for each situation in which you find yourself.
  • This clarity will increase your self-esteem
  • You will begin to walk through life with Presence and Certainty. This doesn’t mean in arrogance. This is a gentle, pervasive knowing that you are in management of your life
  • You will find doubt and fear begin to disappear and your ability to take charge of your business life and personal life increases very quickly
  • The games that you play with others - such as judgment, victim, intimidation, control, blame, competition - begin to end
  • You begin to recognize and change the beliefs that you have (up until now) allowed to operate your life. Have you ever said, “I sound just like my mother.”? Where do you think you learned to respond that way? Yikes! When you turn on your ability to intuitively see these energy patterns, they begin to change.

Intuition is as natural as breathing or eating. By making it a part of your conscious mode of operation, you will become enlightened. Jesus said, “Make thine eye single and you will see the light (your truth).” He was talking about clearing out all the noise that keeps you from experiencing your natural spiritual abilities and then deliberately using them to clearly see your own truth.

Once we have cleared out an amount of this noise (the untrue beliefs) we begin to see the “Light.” In other words, the light of truth (our truth) soon becomes what we live by and what we allow to guide our decisions. The twists and turns of life become easier and less dramatic or stressful because that inner guidance system within us is turned on directing us to take this turn or that.

The work we’ve done in clearing out the noise in the channels (see previous articles on the Grounding Cord and other tools) allows this light and the corresponding adjustments to easily enter. One must clear the old leaves out of the rain gutters in order for the rivers of rain to easily pass through without jamming the works and causing a mess. The work we, as a community, have been doing around the world has surprised and amazed even me. The ease and delivery of this information has been smooth and transformative, allowing more of this Light to enter.  Opening to and developing your intuition and other spiritual abilities will allow you to see and experience that Light. You will also discover how great you are.

Day 8 – Forgive and Release

We are energy beings; vibrating at different frequencies we move through this experience aware or unaware of this fact. There are many scientific proofs of this, however certainly hasn’t been consider mainstream science. There are those out there in the world today who are living examples of this phenomena. They are the Heroes of the Now. They are the ones who are bringing consciousness to Humanity. We can look to these beings who have truly embraced a new reality that has been available for all time and see what is in store for the Human Race.

We, as a species, are evolving into something new, something so beautiful and creative as to propel a giant leap in the evolution of mankind. We are at this place, teetering it seems on the fulcrum, at the tipping point with all the mass of the past pressing us to that place where it all changes. This, I have seen in my Journeys. This, others have seen, as well in their own way. The messages are clear and the guidance is strong.

We are moving towards the Shift, consciously or not, the choice is Now. Becoming aware of our True Nature and how we dance to the rhythms of Universe is a step on the way to Higher Consciousness. We have done that. We can look around, stripped bare to the Light of this Body and see the Truth of the Natural World. We are that, Nature. Look past the objects created for our apparent need and see the True Nature of All that IS.

Creation, it is all around, one must only look beyond the illusion created by the ego and influenced by mass consciousness and societal boundaries, to see it. Reach out right now with your hands, close your eyes and interact with the energy of creation. Like water in your hands, flowing through open fingers… cup your hands and hold it for a moment. With each breath feel it expanding and contracting, pulsing in your hands it is the life force, creation energy that surrounds and permeates all.

Today, on our Journey, as we take total personal responsibility for all our thoughts, words and actions, cancel contracts, vows and agreements and break all spells and curses recognize that in this moment you are free. You are part of Creation and Creation itself… On this Journey we must learn to Forgive and release those places in our past that we have bound ourselves to. We must let it go, through a process of forgiveness and release that is very personal in nature. It is your process… Stop here for a moment and breathe. Cycle through a few breaths and allow this to sink in…

This is your experience and you make it yours by doing. Today, create your process to forgive and release. You will know it is working when you get lighter. When your energy begins to expand in all directions and you can feel it radiating from your heart, you will know.

My experience with this process is that it is deep and transformative and much healing has come from it. I have found places that I was still connected to energetically that anchored my now experience to an event, situation or timeline in the past. I was experiencing something that was being filtered and influenced by the past and I found that I was not fully present. In Soul Retrieval, we Journey to search for those places and bring them into balance with Love and Kindness, returning energy to us now so we can become whole again. We use our emotions to serve as coordinates, markers that lead the way to the original fracture, so as to heal and bring the energy back into wholeness, rather than act out our them out in negative and harmful ways.

What releases the bind is forgiveness and release.

So, today we forgive ourselves… Go deep into your meditation today and align with Creation. Connect to the vibration of the Universe, the frequency of Love and work with it. See yourself as One with Creation, be One… There is no other and forgive. Let it go, see the chunks breaking free and falling away crumbling into nothing and everything returning to Creator for recycling stuck energy fades away and is replaced by the energy of Creation in this Divine Union with Creator.

Make it yours, work it. We call it doing the work for a reason, but what joyful and rewarding work it is. Come into alignment now with Creator, breath in the life energy that surrounds you always and let it go… See all the times in your life experiences where you have gone against creation and allow those blockages to dissolve, as you work the energy of forgiveness and release.

Forgive you. Say it out loud… I forgive and release you, your name   . Go where the energy guides you,  see your connections to those past events dissolve and the energy returning to you in a golden white light.  See it return to you and fill the spaces left by the releasing energy.  See this exchange in your own way and work with it… Coach and encourage yourself during this process, as you have access to your Higher Consciousness and Guides.  Allow this process to work as you work with it.  Allow the emotions to come into your awareness, connect to them only long enough to see what your need to see, then commence the forgiveness.  Ask Creator to show you the way, if you like.  Allow your True Nature to show you…  You know.

I am Love and Kindness… I feel Love and Kindness… I share Love and Kindness, I Love Myself completely, I Love all that I am, I Love all Creation…

I Forgive and Release myself from those times that I went against Creation…  I forgive and release myself completely.  I align to the Highest Good for all Creation.  I forgive myself…

See yourself standing tall in a golden radiating ball of golden white light and breathe…  See yourself whole and complete, One with all that surrounds you, One with all Creation… Creator.

Treat yourself well today… You deserve it.

Love and Kindness,

Marc

Day 7 – True Nature

Hi, Blessings on your Journey Brothers and Sisters...  I was unable to post the links to the videos at the end of this post.  They are with the original post at heroesofthenow.com...  And they are really awesome.  Check em out... Maybe Dre can get 'em linked up...  thanks Dre, if you do...  Marc 

I am Love and Kindness, I feel Love and Kindness, I share Love and Kindness, I Love myself completely, I Love all that I am, I Love all Creation.

Look at the Natural world around you.  The animals, birds, trees and stones, all of creation in the Natural world provides the clue.  Look around and see what is happening in the Natural world.  There is only joy, only celebration.  Only Love.  The Natural world shows us our True Nature if we let it.  We are part of that Natural world, but over 1000’s of years we have disconnected from this.  Humanity has come to be the conqueror of Nature, placing ourselves at the top of the chain, very much a domineering force.

We have done innumerable wrongs to our Mother Earth, to the Natural world with our influence.  We have come to a place in time, where the Natural World is suffering and trying to heal.  Our Earth Mother needs to heal and she is.  Many of the Wisdom Keepers are trying to communicate this at this time.  Humanity has been dominating and attempting to control Nature and it hurts all involved.

Today in our practice we go deeper.  We take total personal responsibility and cancel contracts, etc.  We get into our breath and find our center.  We are grateful.  And as this all sinks deeper into our being we can begin to see.  There is a glimmer there, at the core of our beings.  The light, we are aware of it, but perhaps unsure.  In our quest to remember, this is a very important stage.

Here we must start to remember that we always have been a part of the Natural World.  We are no different than the birds singing to me right now through my window.  They are singing a celebration song to the rising sun, happy, joyous, free and filled with Love and Gratitude.  Do you celebrate the dawn of a new day so fully?  What about the spring blooms?  Do the flowers have an agenda, are they trying to conquer anything by rising up out of the ground and doing what comes Naturally?  No, they just do what is natural, growing towards the sun, blooming vibrant beautiful flowers that attract other collaborators within the web of life.  They are a pure expression of Love.  They are in their Nature.

So, today on this seventh day, a number of spiritual significance, we look for our True Nature.  It is right here  all around us if we drop all constructs and allow the Truth to shine bright.  Our True Nature is that of Love and Kindness.  All else is an illusion created over time to keep us from seeing.  We created it with the collective consciousness, it is what it is and now it is crumbling.

When we embrace our True Nature, we can see it much more clearly.  I am Love and Kindness and I take total personal responsibility for all my thoughts, words and actions. Anything that I experience or promote through action, thoughts and words that is other than Love and Kindness is part of the illusion.

How do you feel right now?  What kind of experience are you having?  How does your body feel?  Where is your mind and what is it doing?  Journal about these topics.  Explore.  Go deeper and deeper into your being, into your sub-consciousness and shine the illuminating light of consciousness into the shadow places.  What does Love and Kindness mean to you?  Write a mini-essay on this topic for yourself and only yourself.  Make some time today to explore this notion and see if it works for you.  Ask the question… What is my True Nature.  Strip away all the fear, greed, anger, hatred, self-doubt, competition… remove all obstacles from the path and search the depths of your being for the Truth.  How do you feel?

I have come to experience that my True Nature is that of Love and Kindness.  I have seen where I have come off that path and gone against Creation, against my True Nature and have recognized it to be the source of my pain and suffering in those times.  With a deep experience of gratitude, I humbly submit to my True Nature.

  • I am Love and Kindness
  • I feel Love and Kindness
  • I share Love and Kindness
  • I Love myself completely
  • I Love all that I am
  • I Love all Creation.

Check out this 2 part video.  Watch it several times if you are so inclined, there is much wisdom shared.  Find yourself, find your Nature.  Embrace the vibrations of the Universe… Love.

Blessings on your Journey…

Love and Kindness,

Marc

SaLuSa 12-April-2010

Channeler: Mike Quinsey

The meek shall inherit the Earth, and these are of course those of you who have found your Love and Light within. Not only that, you live by your understanding of what that means where your relationship to other souls are concerned. To see each other as One means you accept that all are from the One Source. Therefore you would no more raise your hand against your brothers and sisters, than smite yourself. True love of others raises all of you together and once you understand the purpose of life, you see there is no gain to be had at their expense. The problem for eons of time is that you have been taught to put Self first in the pursuit for survival. The survival of the fittest and strongest is the Law of the Jungle, and not for Man who has the potential to become a God. You are powerful Beings, who have the capability of reaching levels of Christ consciousness.

What you have been in the cycle of duality is but a shadow of your real Self. Albeit that you have had to experience much negativity to find your Light, but with the intent to lift yourselves up you have succeeded in discovering the true path. You have progressed at such a fast rate in this lifetime; you now stand ready to take a quantum leap forward. Instead of despair and little hope, you have found that the true path is the promise of return to the higher levels of Light. The Earth may have its attractions, but your paradise will not be found in the lower dimensions. Everything that you have ever dreamt of awaits you with the coming of Ascension, and subconsciously you know that to be so and it drives you onwards.

Now you see the last acts of those whose eyes are still shut, and would prevent your upliftment if they could. However, they are doomed to failure and are already in disarray, as they can no longer hold to their plan for total domination of Mankind. In fact, the Illuminati have accepted that their cause is lost, but they still harbor thoughts of somehow restoring their power. We can assure you that they have no chance of doing so. It is the Light that is now the controlling force, and is growing stronger by the day. Allow matters to act themselves out, and as they do so it will become quite clear that the promises made to you will be fulfilled. Indeed, the signs are already beginning to show the destiny for Mankind, and you will find that your sovereignty will be restored.

If you reflect on your experience of duality, you will surely see that there has been a divine plan to release you from it. It was never intended that it should completely engulf you, although many of you have touched the depths but have risen up again. All of your experiences have been placed within the mass consciousness, and each of you will benefit from them as it is unnecessary for each of you to experience everything personally. There will come a time when you will review your many lives, and it is as well that you remember that you chose your experiences. Even now you are moving through your final experiences, to bring your karma to an end.

We of the Galactic Federation do not consider you as lesser Beings, simply because your vibrations are lower than ours. We know that duality was your choice, and that you left the higher vibrations to face its challenges to lift up and find the Light once again. We see you as an ascended Being already, and admire your strength of character to take on such a challenge. When open contact commences, you shall see that our approach to you is as equals. We wish you to work with us and will introduce you to our technologies that we know you will quickly adapt to. Even now your knowledge borders on ours, and it means that once together no time will be lost before we get started. There is so much to do in a relatively short time, yet all will proceed as planned and completed by the end of your cycle.

Is it not strange Dear Ones to think that some 70 years ago, you would not have accepted the possibility that Beings like us existed? You held the idea that we could not reach you, because it would take too many Light Years to do so. Yet in that comparatively short time since, you have learnt about other dimensions, and how we can use them for inter-dimensional travel. Now you accept that intelligent life can reach you from far-flung constellations. Indeed you are also aware of parallel Universes, and your understanding of life expands even further. Life abounds everywhere and yet most of it is invisible to your eyes, as it vibrates too highly to be registered by you. However, when you have ascended the whole Universe opens up to you, and you will meet Beings of all types in addition to those more readily recognized as human.

In your own way you have plenty of excitement and adventures on Earth, but when you have earnt the right to Galactic travel they will be far more fulfilling. Think about what you have learnt from the different races upon Earth, such as their cultures and religious beliefs, then think of it on a Universal scale and imagine how much more there is to consider and understand. On Our ships you will meet some Beings that are not humanoid, and they are also Galactic Federation Members. You tend to judge people from their outer appearance, whereas we see the inner soul and know we are One.

With regard to what we have told you, you will understand that we cannot flood you with information too early on our initial contact. The fact that we really exist will be too much for many people, who have shut their eyes and closed their minds to such a possibility. However, in a gentle way we shall gradually bring out the truth about us, and how you are linked with us from times long gone. Many civilizations have had a hand in your evolution, and more you shall learn in all good time. Think upon it Dear Ones, why is it that in this Universe that all Beings are of the Human form; does this not tell you that the hand of God is in all things?

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and as I look upon Earth I see a glorious Light rising up from the grids around it. It tells us in no uncertain terms that it is so powerful, that it cannot possibly be reversed or stopped from fully manifesting. That is the most wonderful sight and your future in the higher dimensions is assured.

Thank you SaLuSa

Mike Quinsey.

Adventures of the New Human

Iterations of Release and Giving Over Authority to the Soul

My beloved ones,

Many of you are experiencing enormous cycles of letting go. 

This includes the past re-surfacing to be healed and released.  The present being shifted into a more perfect alignment as you let go and let yourself re-orient to your own natural frequency and functional focus.  The future being shifted as the dreams and intentions you held based on what you would term a “prior” self felt appropriate and delightful are recalibrated to support your increasingly clear sense of function.  As you more and more spend time knowing yourself as unified consciousness, as you try on and get used to the power of wearing the wings of the New Human, as you spend more time with your physical, emotional, mental and spirit bodies in unity, oriented from the heart chakra, more and more--the soul IS the navigational system for your journey and this changes everything!


With an increase in your vibration, comes an increase in speed of experience and manifestation and your point of view is expanded. 

If you are able to trust in yourself, you will naturally orient to these shifts simultaneously and thereby have an understanding of what transpires in your life, what shifts and creates space, what is being magnetized and drawn to you to support the fulfillment of your function—you will be able to feel and know all of this as one unified vector moving in alignment with the everything.

When, however, you doubt yourself—and depending on where this occurs—you may find your mental or emotional bodies out of alignment with your entire Lightbody and this creates much confusion, disorientation and a sense of loss.

Your Soul knows your function.  It blends in at the appropriate levels to fulfill your role in the process of dimensional ascension.  All-That-Is or Spirit knows itself as one-ness and in this orientation; it does nothing, it simply IS.  Spirit also performs certain functions—as the Archangel Michael for example.  The portion of Spirit performing the functional of the Archangel Michael changes all the time—yet this energy understands the function of the Archangel Michael and retains the appearance of consistency and continuity.

The same is true of you in your various incarnations of Spirit.  You, in your various reincarnational existences (physical and non-physical) co-occur.  In the gestalt of “YOU,” you recognize the “progress of your functional expression” and feel a sense of gratitude comparing “later” circumstances to “earlier” circumstances. 

The people you have been and are, are like the childhood you remember—part of you entirely, and yet also having gone their own way.  Pursued different expressions and yet all interconnected.  You experience, unconsciously of course, the collective unfolding of all of these aspects of yourself, as well as the unified expansive perspective of All-That-Is, which guides and informs your functional role in each point of focus continually.

The immediate sharing of all of this information, and the way in which it is known, understood, integrated and shapes your sense of focus and desire is beyond comprehension in your current vessel.  Simply know that it exists and it is always connected to what IS; and as such, timely, relevant knowledge about your own experience is fully available to you.  You only need to ask and to learn to listen to yourself and to cultivate the way in which this communication works best for you.

For example—Meredith has been asked by many experiencing break-ups of existing relationships to comment on this seeming “trend”…

Knowing as you do, that all is shifting in to alignment, the read on breakups is an easy-one; the functions are no longer aligned.  The vibrations are no longer in sync.  The shared purpose has dissipated and/or the individuals involved have shifted to a new focus as a result of their own growth and no longer is the functional overlap present which made the relationship so primary in the experience.

The more one grows and expands the more continual adjustments relationships must go through.  For some this ongoing stimulus and realignment is refreshing and exhilarating; to feel oneself in a never ending experience of unfolding, re-inventing, creation—a thrilling ride indeed.  In some of your relationships, you continually inspire and elevate one another.  Your purpose is ongoing and these shifts become a means of discovery together and a catalyst for each of you living a happier, more fulfilling life.  For those, these shifts are not as difficult and not as much of a surprise. 

It is for those who would like to experience the illusion of solidity and/or those who desire a slower pace to change and life that these shifts are either difficult and/or avoided/denied.  The challenge comes when one member of the relationship aligns with a pace and a frequency or vibration, which is significantly faster or slower than the other. 

And it is this differing response to life, which complicates the natural completion or shifting of priorities.  One who is in sync with all-that-is will feel their priorities realign as there are significant shifts and as dimensional ascension brings them closer to their soul signature and to their innate function being embodied more directly on the earth plane.  If they are “partnered” with one who is not aligned or significantly related to this emerging function and the related sense of lifestyle, and especially if the partner is not also experiencing their own shifts and realignment; then at first they will find their partner possibly feeling “abandoned”—as their energy and focus is withdrawn or diminished as it shifts to the new point of creation in experience.  If this is discussed, the emotional body may become triggered and there is often an imbalance then in the vibrational frequency, as the emotional body becomes out of sync—vibrating out of harmonic ratios with the physical, mental and spirit bodies.  Now orientation has been lost.  Which leads to a feeling of being disconnected in the one who was connected and therefore, shifted.  Then there is more emotion and confusion.  Which creates further imbalance.

The solution is to let go.

Once you let go, naturally you will align with your inner sense of things.  Allow the emotions to flow through you; trusting in all-that-is and knowing that all is well, even if you do not understand what is taking place.  Once you are re-oriented to self and your inner connection, if the purpose which led you “apart” is still clear and present, then allow it to unfold, at the rate you desire and trust that all is well for BOTH of you, and All-That-Is. 

Again, the challenge comes when one member of the relationship aligns with a pace and a frequency or vibration, which is significantly faster or slower than the other. 

You have, innately, your own frequency at which you vibrate.  You may not fully experience this when you are dis-allowing a full connection to your expanded self; but as blocks to clarity are removed and as the soul gains dominion in being your point of orientation, these natural frequencies appear and cannot be stifled, or adjusted significantly to keep pace with others, without significant negative experience within. 

Let go and BE YOU.  Trust in that way of being and all that is attracted and aligned with it.  Love everything with curiosity and interest; expecting something wonderful to unfold and rejoice in your own function!  Celebrate the variety of our purposes and rates of unfolding.  Invite grace into your life to smooth all of this out, and simply let go.

Becoming the New Human requires you learn to live from your soul perspective, fully conscious of your innate power and connectedness, as well as clear and allowing your unique function.  The wisdom as to how to blend your function with All-That-Is, moment to moment and point to point will be clear from within; much of this happens without evening needing to ask—it is simply non-verbal, non-thought knowing which leads you.  You only need trust your heart and move toward peace and what feels good next to stay in sync with this natural personal power through awareness which is YOU. 

Realize there is an enormous variance in our functions and frequency!  Let this be.  No.  Go further—love this!

For some their natural frequency is so rapid that what you experience as a lifetime is known in what you would call a moment.  {Can you imagine?  Ha!}  Since all lives are lived simultaneously, then any separation experienced is but a psychological one.  Your “future” personalities are as real as your “past” ones.  After a while, this will no longer concern you and you will live increasingly “in the flow” concentrated on the activity that is at each point, the perfect expression of your unique aspect blending and harmonizing with All-That-Is. 

These messages, your inner sense of things, the mingling of reality and experience, these messages from one system to another occur in various ways continually, emerging in your experience in one guise or another—as inspiration of many kinds.  All are doorways.  The door to the soul is open, and it leads to all the dimensions of experience.

The soul stands both within and without the fabric of life as you know it.  It is your point of power, peace, clarity and connection.  I invite you to let go and be SOUL; be who you are.

I AM the Archangel Michael.

The Presence of our Present

One of my favorite quotes (from the actor Woody Allen) is “Eighty percent of success is showing up.” Each lifetime is a way in which we show up, ready to complete a task begun long ago, to work through any karmic cycles which have the power to ensure our return for completion and transformation. While we may wonder why we do it, we volunteer to return because we know that every energetic opening we leave behind must be closed through our own healing. No one can heal, transmute or complete energies that we have left incomplete. And to do this we must be present in many ways, physically, emotionally, energetically, experientially and spiritually. Each of those levels of presence is important and without even one of them, we are not fully present in our life, our issues or our healing.


In each lifetime we are physically present for the work that we have to do and we accomplish this through our physical body which the earthly home we offer spirit. We may like or dislike our body, see it as a blessing or a challenge, and even wonder what accident of nature created the body we have but it is our vehicle for learning, growth, healing and transformation. So while our body is present on earth, it occupies physical space, when we do not like our body or find fault with it, we are not present within it. And this is one way that we under-utilize our presence.

Our emotional presence is a complicated jumble of a wide array of feelings from every lifetime we have ever experienced that we are consciously and unconsciously aware of, mostly the latter. What we know of our emotional presence is that we are always feeling some kind of emotional energy that we respond to according to how it affects us. What we do not know about this presence is the truth of how we are to use our emotional presence in a lifetime and without this knowledge we allow this aspect to become our most important presence and we live through it alone, creating an imbalance of emotional energy in our lives that leads to fear, pain and frustration. We need our emotional presence to re-create the energy of what we have come to heal as this is the energy of our karma.

Our energetic presence is the most under-utilized because allow our emotional presence to dominate it. Emotions are one aspect of our energy but there are many others. From a human perspective, our energetic presence is actually the most important because it determines how everything in our life unfolds and what we attract. When we are present in the emotional energy of an experience and do not incorporate the other aspects of our presence we are present in the emotions and nothing else. The emotions dominate to the exclusion of the higher vibrations of resolution and healing.

What is an experiential presence? It is how we participate in each experience. The people and situations we choose to engage with, the actions we take, choices we make, words we speak and energies we express and feel all relate to how we have chosen to experience a situation. And through our experience we can choose to raise our vibrations so we can experience life in a different way. But the experience itself has no value to us other than as a vehicle for learning. When we allow the experience to become the critical element we become present in the experience and all of its energies. Growth and learning occur when we remember the experience is a way to awaken other elements of our presence.

We also have the gift and choice of our spiritual presence. It is our gift because it is always with us, whether or not we acknowledge it and our choice because we choose to partner with it and receive guidance and wisdom instead of walking our earthly journey alone. Although it exists in the background, all of our other aspects of presence have no purpose without it for our lifetime is spiritual in purpose and context. Our many lifetimes exist on a spiritual continuum, in which our human incarnations are the practice field for our spiritual understanding. By bringing our spiritual understanding into all other aspects of our presence, we have wisdom to choose from our highest aspects and can then choose the highest vibrations of any energies.

We can be present, occupying a certain place in time and all of the other aspects of our presence are somewhere else. Our presence is where we are putting our energy. Think for a moment of where you are in this moment, are you present in what you are doing or thinking about something else. When you think about yourself, are you present in your thoughts or are you thinking about someone’s life, opinions or actions? Are you here in this moment or are you thinking about other things you must do or something that has happened in the past? So much of our presence is in the past, distracted, or focused somewhere else and that is why we have problems manifesting what we want—because we are not fully present in the energy of our manifestation.

This brings us back to the issue of wholeness, where we are fully connected to ourselves which also means we are fully connect to Source. When all of our aspects of presence are fully present, each contributes to the purpose of our life journey, which is to bring us back to wholeness within ourselves so we can be reconnected to Source.

This is just another aspect of our ascension journey and our willingness to achieve mastery. The journey to connection is about wholeness, within and without, so every aspect of our reality is filled with our presence and we are present within it. When we see our spiritual and material presence as being separate, we are not present spiritually in our physical form so we are missing an important component of our journey. Without wholeness we are simply taking space on the earth plane, engaging in experiences that do not result in growth and transformation. With the conscious joining of the spiritual and material, where all of our aspects are working in harmony we are gifting ourselves with spiritual understanding to make this a journey of growth and transformation instead of blindly wandering through life wondering whether we will ever find peace and fulfillment.
