Stop, Look and Listen

The following excerpt is from Tyberonn:

"You are conscious creatures, and what you focus on is energetically attracted to you. Therefore it is essential as you advance in wisdom to become the monitors & responsible guardians of your thoughts. You must be constantly aware of the contents of your conscious mind. The self awareness of recognizing the nature of your 'mental contents' is an essential aspect of becoming a fully conscious Spiritual Being."

The Master Turns Inward

The following excerpt is from Ronna Herman.  you can read more from this post here.

"The Soul, the physical vessel and particularly the mind have their own rhythmic cycles and agendas. The Soul’s desire is focused on becoming en-Lighten-ed. The mind is focused on attaining and retaining information. The physical body is focused on experiencing via the senses. Humanity is constantly experiencing cycles of growth, stagnation and decay, which makes way for a new cycle of growth and expansion. The master turns inward and strives for an enhanced quality of life, while the unawakened Souls seek outwardly for stimulus and gratification via pleasurable, physical sensation and material possessions. Love as an external focus, exterior to you, will always bring a sense of vulnerability, always needing constant validation by someone or something. Love as an internal focus projected outward is a constant flow of self-assurance, of self-acceptance, always striving to incorporate and project more of this blissful feeling of unity and harmony with all creation."

A Re-Reintroduction

Over the past several years, I have gone through numerous changes in perspective: perspective of myself, of the world, of reality, of what IS.

However, I have not, during that time, registered any thoughts or insights regarding such changes on this blog. In fact, if you scroll down you will find that I have only occasionally posted anything, and when I did it was inevitably a quote or excerpt from elsewhere.

This morning I spent an hour changing the appearance and layout of this blog, as well as it's sister blog (The Day Harry Sued God).

And, having done do, it appears that I have reinvigorated my penchant for expressing in this manner. I don't know whether this is yet another passing fancy, or whether I will find myself sharing my thoughts with you (my imaginary audience) on a regular basis.

But alas, it matters not. And that is one of the realizations of recent years that benefits me often and to no end. It truly matters not, and therefore I am free to choose: shall I, or shall I not?


Perhaps I will write again soon. And perhaps I will not. But it will be my choice either way, and that choice will feel good.

For if anything truly matters, it is that one feel good.

But that is a discussion for another day. Or perhaps later today. Or after I shower.

Au reviour, mon ami.

The SHIFT in Plain English

From Jim Self:

As 2012 approaches there is an increasing urgency to this message because we’re all, literally, running out of time to play in the third dimension.

In simple terms, the habit of thinking and feeling and behaving that we know of as the third dimension is going away. Everyone is shifting into a fourth dimensional consciousness and experience, and then into a fifth dimensional consciousness and experience.

However, most people on the planet are not prepared for this Shift. But it is happening nonetheless, and for those who are unaware of what’s going on it will not be an easy or comfortable experience.

Yet this can be a wonderful, enjoyable time as well. With some basic information about what the Shift is, and what “dimensions” are, and with simple tools to help manage our thoughts and feelings, everyone has the ability to evolve their consciousness and move gracefully and joyfully into these higher vibrational realms.

If you don’t know what dimensions are, you are not alone. Most people playing the game of life as we know it in the third dimension are playing without a “rule book” that would explain what the game really is and how one can play it successfully.

This article provides these basic, missing rules. It explains what the third, fourth, and fifth dimensions are, and why they are the most important consideration of your life right now.
If you can understand the structure and play of these dimensions, you can begin to move fluidly through the unprecedented changes of this Shift without fear, without effort, without the tension and anxiety that is, for the most part, the daily habit of our lives.
So, first of all, let me define what dimensions are not.

Dimensions are not places or locations, and they are not a linear progression - 3, 4, 5, 6 - stacked up like pancakes. And the 3rd dimension, or the 4th dimension, is not the chair you’re sitting in, or the walls that surround you, or even the Earth itself. That is form, which exists predominantly in the 3rd and 4th dimensions, and which will still be very much part of the play in the 4th dimension when the 3rd dimension is no longer an option.

In general, dimensions are states of consciousness available to anyone who vibrates in resonance with the specific frequencies and opportunities available within each dimension.

In a way, you could think of each dimension as a different game with a different set of rules as to what is possible and not possible for the beings that choose to play and create there.

So what is the 3rd Dimension?

The third dimension (3D) is a box of rigid beliefs, more or less, with a relatively inflexible set of rules and limitations. Most of us have been playing this game for lifetimes, so we tend to think it is the only game available to us. But nothing could be further from the truth. One of the rigid 3D beliefs that structure our lives – our thinking and feeling and actions - is linear time.

Linear time is an optional belief and structure that let’s us “live” an experience of past and a future... and then we die. Because this belief is the default assumption of mass 3D consciousness, and events seem to validate the belief, most of us think and act as if it’s true.

But now we are all waking up from the illusion of this ubiquitous belief. And as you become more conscious, you realize that time in 3D is actually a time loop. What you experience in “the past” is pretty much what you put your attention on now, and you project that reality into “the future,” and therefore you experience it over and over again.

So the structure of time is quite specific (and limiting) in the 3rd dimension, but your experience of time is quite different (and empowering) as you move into higher dimensions.

Everything in a 3D consciousness is also very conditional. The concept of, for example, ‘unconditional love,’ does not exist in the 3rd dimension. If you experience ‘unconditional love’ or ‘unconditional peace’ you have actually moved into a fourth dimensional (4D) consciousness.

You see, in the earth experience now, we have access to both 3rd and 4th dimensional consciousness, but most of us rarely step out of the well-grooved habits of 3D thinking and feeling.

The 3rd dimension also offers no possibility of choice. We don’t choose our thoughts, feelings, and actions in every moment (that’s a skill of 4D and 5D), instead we react from unconscious beliefs and training to the people and situations that pop up in our space.

Duality provides another rigid structure for 3D experience. Up/down. Left/right.

Should/shouldn’t. Since the fall of Atlantis 12,500 years ago, we have become very fearful as a way of life, and in that fear we have learned to narrowly define good and bad, right and wrong, etc. Unconscious judgment permeates 3D thinking.

Moreover, we perceive our 3D experience predominantly with the left hemisphere of the brain, home of the rational mind, and so we use only about 5 to 10 percent of the brain’s capacity to play the 3D game. Most of us suspect the rest of our brain must do something but have no idea what it actually does and how it functions.

In fact, what the rest of the brain enables us to do is function in the higher 4th and 5th dimensions, and beyond.

We already have the potential, all the necessary equipment and wiring, right now, to be fully conscious in all these dimensions. But our habits of thinking and feeling, grooved over many lifetimes, dumbs= us down and limit us to 3D experience. Our left-brain, rational mind only knows what it knows, and doesn’t know what it doesn’t know, and it works tirelessly to keep us within a thin range of objective 3D thinking and possibilities. And we, for the most part, have gone along for the ride. But no longer.

The increasing light energies and frequencies of the Shift are rewiring our brains to allow us access to a much wider range of information and possibility than is available in the 3rd dimension. These light energies are preparing us for 4D and 5D experience, even as they are clearing the rigid 3D “rules” from our consciousness.

So what is the 4th Dimension?

The “rules” of 4th dimensional consciousness provide an enhanced sense of ease, possibility, and capability than the structures of the 3rd dimension.

Time in 4D, for example, is always present time. The focus is only ever this moment, what is happening right now. Our bodies already know only this present time; they can’t know ‘yesterday’ or ‘tomorrow,’ and as conscious beings in our natural alignment in the higher 4th dimension, we function absolutely in this “Now” of present time awareness and attention. When our attention point becomes present time awareness, choice becomes possible again. We can observe any and all events with a sense of detachment, merely as information to consider, and from that still, uncluttered platform we are then, and only then, free to choose our response. In the higher 4th dimension we become response-able.

A concept and possibility known as paradox also becomes available in the present time of 4D consciousness. Paradox simply means that what was true just a moment ago may not be true right now. And what was false a moment ago may no longer be false. Instead of applying rigid, pre-existing definitions to any experience, we choose our preferred version and vibration in every moment.

So as we move into 4D consciousness in present time, with the power of choice and response-ability, and the flexibility of paradox, the ability to alter the game to enhance our happiness and wellbeing becomes available.

Interestingly, 4D consciousness will not be a long-term option after the Shift clears away the rigid structures of 3D consciousness.

The 4th dimension is serving as an essential, but short-lived, stepping stone or vibrational platform from which we will all move into 5th dimensional consciousness. 5D is the target for Earth and all her inhabitants. The archangels have said the entire consciousness of Earth will be a fifth dimensional consciousness by the year 2015.

But although the 5th dimension is the target, the experience of the 4th dimension is essential. We cannot enter 5D directly from 4D. All mental and emotional baggage from the 3rd dimension must be left at the door to the 4th dimension, and we can only enter the 5th dimension after we have become masterful of our thoughts and feelings in the 4th dimension.

Some assembly is required.

So what is the 5th Dimension?

The 5th dimension operates, to a great extent, in a completely differently fashion from the 3rd and 4th dimensions.

Time in 5D is instantaneous time, meaning that everything (all possibilities) occurs in the same place at the same moment. In 5D, you focus your attention and the answer or experience is given to you exactly when and where you focus.

Ask and you shall receive.

In 5D, you don’t have to move or go anywhere for your answers or experiences; everything comes to you easily and effortlessly based upon the attention point and vibration you choose to hold in every moment.

When you are vibrating in 5D consciousness, you don’t create with form as you do in the 3rd and 4th dimensions, you create with light and light patterns and light frequencies. You apply sound and color and geometric shapes. You consciously interact with the Creator and all the Beings of Light.

In this heightened consciousness, the rational mind plays a very minimal role. It returns to a small, specific focus it was intended to have, namely the wellbeing of the physical body.
But before we can move into our vibrational home that is 5D consciousness, we must first become masterful of the vibrations and possibilities of 4D consciousness. This is the focus of the Shift for most people as we head into the ever-accelerating events of 2012.

So how do you become masterful in 4D consciousness?

The Tools of 4D Present Time

As I mentioned, 4D is the 'right now' of 'present time.' But present time actually has four different levels.

In 2010, we all stepped into the third level. As we move 2012, we will step into the fourth, and final, level. In that level, when you think, ‘I would like an apple,’ the apple is going to appear in your hand. Usually when I say that people get very excited. And it is exciting. However … there is a however.

The vast majority of people on this planet are not prepared to be the masters of their every thought, feeling, and action in every moment. But there’s no option. It’s a required, baseline skill of higher 4D and 5D consciousness.

One of the reasons the 3rd dimension was created was to provide a “playground” in which we each can practice and hone the vibration of our thoughts and feelings. To accomplish this, the 3D playground has a time buffer. Instead of ‘instant manifestation’ there is a time lag between the thought we think and the manifestation or experience of that thought. For the most part, we are very sloppy with this buffer.

Instead of focusing on what we want, and allowing this to unfold over time, we spew anger, frustration, boredom, worry, anxiety, blame, guilt, fear - all kinds of lower, disharmonic thoughts and feelings. We behave as if we can think and feel anything with impunity because we do not see the instantaneous results of our thinking.

But no longer. As 3D linear time is collapsing into a single point of present time, the time buffer is collapsing too. We have less opportunity to practice being aware of our mental and emotional habits before what we think is what we get. This is a very big deal.

Fortunately, some simple energy tools can help you manage your thoughts and emotions in every moment so that you can be prepared for the unprecedented opportunity and challenge of living and creating in present time in the higher dimensions.

These basic energy tools are available for free on our website www.masteringalchemy .com but let me explain a few of them here by way of example.

Allow the Shift to clear your unconscious thoughts & feelings

In simple terms, the Shift is using one wave of light frequencies to clear away who we are not, and another wave to remind us who we are. The Shift knows where we’ve stored unwanted, unconscious habits of thought and reactionary emotion, and the light is clearing all this from our vibration.

However, as these lesser thoughts and feelings are cleared, they will come into our awareness, and magnetize people and circumstances to us that mirror these chaotic energies. How do you handle these often-powerful energies when they appear. You allow them. If you can simply observe them with a sense of detachment as they come up – knowing that they are just coming up to be cleared - they will clear quickly, and you won’t even remember what the fuss was all about.

But if you grab hold and engage these chaotic thoughts and feelings, if you insist on feeling guilty or worrying, if you continue to argue that ‘I am not OK’ or ‘They are not OK,’ these energies will not be cleared from your space – and the Shift, as it accelerates ever faster, will become a very bumpy, very ‘not OK’ road for you.

Remember most often what comes up is not even yours; it does not belong to you. Acknowledge it and know that it’s coming up to be cleared… forever. Take a couple of deep breaths, go for a walk, listen to music -- but turn your attention point to something of a higher vibration.

Understanding the Lower and Higher 4th Dimension

To simplify another important aspect of the Shift, let’s imagine that the 4th dimension has just two parts to it – a lower 4th dimension and a higher 4th dimension. (This is not technically true, but it’s a useful distinction.)

As I mentioned, form will remain when 3D disappears. We’ll still experience houses and cars and trees. But fear, judgments, blame and guilt, the rights and the wrongs, will disappear. All this dense emotional energy, which is the only thing that prevents us from playing in the higher dimensions right now, will simply be cleared from our space.

However, depending upon the vibration of the thoughts you are thinking as 3D disappears, you will find yourself in either the lower 4th dimension or the higher 4th dimension.

The lower 4th dimension, which is also called the astral plane or dream space, holds all the thoughts ever thought by anyone in the 3rd dimension.

You see, thoughts don’t just disappear after we think them. They live on in the lower 4th dimension, with specific weight, texture, density and emotional charge. And they bond and cluster with all the other thoughts of similar character.

Some thoughts – such as rape, domination, slavery, war, hatred – feel heavy, dense and dark. Conversely, thoughts such as ‘butterflies,’ ‘children playing in the park,’ and ‘flowers blooming on a warm spring day’ feel light and have a simple, airy vibration. Lighter thoughts like these rarely linger in a 3D consciousness. Because in order to align and feel the vibration of, for example, ‘beauty,’ we must step out of 3D consciousness into present time, a higher 4th dimensional space.

Wait, you say, I know ‘Beauty!’ You do, because we’re now living in both the third and fourth dimensions simultaneously, but how often do you align yourself with, and linger on, the feeling of beauty?

It’s a 4D, present-time skill to take thoughts like ‘light,’ ‘airy’ and ‘beauty’ to heart. These vibrations don’t even exist in the hurry up, past/future of the 3rd dimension where it’s very difficult to pause in present time and smell a flower.

But, on the other hand, have you noticed that heavy, uncomfortable thoughts such as ‘I’m not good enough.’ or ‘They don’t like me.’ or ’I’m never going to succeed.’ tend to linger quite a bit longer in 3D consciousness? This is because thoughts are electric and emotions are magnetic. A set of light, airy vibrations like ‘beauty’ or ‘graciousness’ has a low, soft, electrical charge that is expansive and fluid. Whereas heavier, uglier thoughts come highly charged and wrapped in highly magnetic emotions. These thoughts are not only harder to clear than kind, loving thoughts; they also bond magnetically to all other thoughts like them in the lower 4th dimension.

So much of the magnetic field we walk around in - I’m not OK, You’re not OK - has very little to do with who we really are. It’s just the magnetism of one heavy, unconscious thought attaching itself to the magnetism of similar heavy, unconscious thoughts.

You begin to see why it’s vital to become conscious of the thoughts you think and the emotions you throw into your vibrational mix.

Fortunately, the second wave of the Shift is making this easier and easier. As we let go of the heavier energies of Who We Are Not, the light is rewiring us, stepping us up into a higher 4th dimensional vibration where lesser thoughts and emotions are not such a distraction in our general experience.

We start to live in alignment with the heart, and experience the vibrations and consequences of concepts such as ‘I like me,’ ‘I’m happy,’ ‘I’m pleased with myself.’

The alignment with the heart becomes natural because it already is our natural alignment in the higher fourth, fifth and sixth dimensions.

However, some assembly is required.

Any limitations, judgments, denials, blame, guilt, or resentments that we each still argue for, in one way or the other, become like weights on a hot air balloon. They limit how far we can rise within the fourth dimensional range of vibration.

Each of us is 100 percent in charge of the process. The more weight - lower-vibrational patterns of words, thoughts, and emotions - we remove, the higher we rise into the expansive experience of the higher 4th dimension. Here, it is as if we look past the boundaries and limitations, which were always just a habit of observation in 3D. It’s a wider view, a calmer view, and a quieter view. In the upper 4th dimension, you can choose fear or worry, and drop into the lower 4th dimension… but you won’t.

As you begin to align with the heart, very naturally - ‘I Like Me’ - you’re going to find there’s no reason or compulsion to choose an uncomfortable attention point in the lower 4th dimension. It comes naturally and readily because it is the language and vibration of you’re natural well being - if you let it, and if you focus upon it.

It’s a choice.

As the shift accelerates and time collapses and everything is in the present moment, you could still choose your thoughts and feelings unconsciously, out of 3rd dimensional habit, and you would have the opportunity to live that discomfort immediately and fully in your experience.
Or you can choose your thought and emotion in every moment, with focus and awareness, and live the fullness of that experience.

In other words, it’s to your benefit to practice and integrate the ability to choose the contents of your consciousness right now, before it really counts - and that moment is not very far away.
It’s all up to you.

Until now, the center of your head, the place from where you can choose your thoughts and attention point, has been pre-occupied by the thoughts of others. Your Mom-Dad-Teacher-Minister loved you and had an opinion about the best way for you to live your life, and as their thoughts moved in to your head, “You” moved out.

Now it is time to take back ownership of the center of your head. As you recognize and let go of the unnatural thoughts that say, ‘Oh, I can’t do this’ and ‘I can’t do that’ and ‘I must do this,’ you’re going to find that soon all those thoughts, with their sticky interlocking connections in the lower 4th dimension, disappear.

Just putting your attention in present time on ‘beauty’ and ‘well-being‘, or just being ‘happy’ in a state of ‘ease‘, eliminates the lesser vibrations stored within the lower astral fields of the 4th dimension.

Start by playing with the vibration of what I call Living Words. The Archangels very deliberately and precisely selected these words - words such as Certain, Capable, Commanding, Present, Senior, Graciousness and Happy - so that you can most easily clear all the unconscious vibrations from your space.
Choose one word each day and live with it all day, think it and feel it often.

If you practice thinking and feeling these vibrations now, when it doesn’t absolutely count, they will become your habit when it does count.

You begin to gracefully realign with the fullness of “You,” and your natural state of wellbeing lifts you into the higher 4th dimension.

Easy? Kind of.

Simple? Yes.

Does it require awareness and a choice from a present time space? Absolutely.

Can you sit on the sidelines and hope it all turns out? No.

Increased levels of electromagnetic light from the higher dimensions are now flowing within all of us. Many people in the 3rd dimension cannot handle this surge, and they are choosing to step out of their bodies.

And many, many more will follow as the Shift accelerates
You see, everyone is going home to the 4th and then 5th dimensions, but not everyone is going home on the same timeline, and with the same ease and grace.

How do you choose?

Was The Bible Channeled ?

The following passage is from Akashic Records channeled by Jen Eramith MA

Was the Bible channeled originally? How much has it been changed since?

"We are going to answer this question for both the Old Testament and the New Testament because, while they are very different documents with very different histories, parts of both were channeled. And many more parts were added for political or social reasons. In addition, some parts have been translated in a way that retains the magic of the channeling, and in other parts, some of the magic of the channeling has been lost in translation over the years. The Bible in its entirety is a conglomerate that includes some channeled material and includes some political, non-channeled material."

How do stories in the Bible serve humankind?

"There are many ways that the stories in the Bible serve mankind. We will not outline them all here, but discuss some that can be given an Akashic context. The first is that some of the channeled material provides a spiritual tool that is universal -- it applies to everyone. Much of the channeled material in the Bible is similar to material found in other scriptures from various religious traditions. In fact, one way you can know something is channeled is when it directly correlates with scriptures from other religions. (In addition, channeled material is always based in Love and compassion.)

"It is no coincidence that some of the things in the New Testament can also be found in the Qur'an. The same ideas can also be found in the Indian Vedas, and in the writing of philosophers. Great thinkers and spiritual leaders throughout the world have come back to the same ideas because they are fundamentally true and fundamentally useful for human beings. For instance, the idea of loving one another being the ultimate law is fundamental the human code. All of you know somewhere inside yourselves that it is true. You find spiritual reminders of this universal truth when it is written in different social contexts. Those parts of the Bible are incredibly useful. Some of those include much of the Book of Psalms. When you identify those passages that truly speak to a higher love that you feel in your heart, then you can assume that those are channeled.

"The second way that the Bible, serves humankind is that it is an historical document that provides a valuable glimpse into how western culture emerged through the Jewish civilization described in the Old Testament, and the evolution of culture as different communities clashed in the New Testament. More than half of the content in the Bible is based in recording, enacting, and enforcing social rules and hierarchies. These passages are based in power games that occurred historically and that are still played out today. This document brought with it an entirely new paradigm -- a revolution in thought that eventually would evolve into western culture, a force that is now sweeping the world. Understanding where that came from and how it was laid out initially, can help you go back to find what is valuable in your culture and recognize what is no longer serving you.

"A useful exercise with the Bible is to find the passages that are based in love and to find the passages that are based in something other than love -- in judgment, or criticism or in the recounting of lineages. If you contrast and compare those passages, you will find two very different voices. If you hold Love, as a guideline for what is useful in the Bible, you will find that it is easy to distinguish the spiritual guidance from the games of power. Be sure that the Love you use as a lens encompasses all humankind, not just people who are similar to you. When you find that level of Love, you will easily let go of the passages and pages that uphold a power game that is no longer serving you.

"Finally, the third way that the Bible serves humankind is that by dissecting it -- by taking it apart and looking at its different pieces and components -- it is providing you with rich material for deciding who you want to be as a human family moving forward. The arguments you see people having over the Bible – arguments over its legitimacy and interpretation -- those arguments are meant to be happening right now on Planet Earth because they are helping you grow. The arguments are not ultimately about the Bible. The arguments are about power – who has had it in history, and who should have it in the future. (Hint: only a few can have it in your current system – everyone will need to have it in equal measure in the future!)

"The arguments over the Bible are actually about who you are as a human family, and who you wish to become as you evolve forward. They are providing a very fruitful dialogue that is sometimes not productive and sometimes hurtful but, it is always useful because you are deciding what to keep and what to let go of as you move into a new age for humankind."

Does it matter if a story in the Bible is really historical if it is just a metaphor? How can we use the stories in the Bible in our lives?

"The answer is, it matters to historians whether they are historical or not – it does not matter for people who are seeking spiritual guidance in the Bible. Spiritual meaning exists in the present moment. The only place it can reside is where you exist, which is in this moment in time. What matters is the meaning that resonated from that moment back then and how that meaning exists in your life now. When it comes to finding spiritual guidance, what matters is how it informs you and helps you live a more loving present moment in your life.

"With the Bible and with most documents, it is useful for you to read it as myth, because if you get too attached to what is real or not, you lose track of the purpose of reading. The purpose of reading is to find meaning that guides you now. Do not become paralyzed waiting for prophecies that may or may not come to be. For most of you, what matters is your interpretation of the text. What matters is what part of the story stirs something in you, and where you sense your Love can grow through the meaning of the story.

"The meaning in scripture is in the power of collective mythology. Human beings need stories that help you make sense of your own lives and help you find your place in the human family. One day, one story might not be very interesting to you at all. Another day it might interest you greatly based on what you need to learn, what you need to hear. Notice what character in the story you identify with and consider what you can adjust or improve in your life based on that character. It is so important with the Bible, as with all other texts, that you first look for the Love in the story. Look for where you Love is being stirred and follow that. If you do not apply what you read to how you live in the present moment, the text has no meaning.

"It is so important that you trust your own thinking. If something does not ring true to you, if something does not really seem right, you do not need to decide if it is right or not according to anyone else. Decide for yourself. Ask yourself, “When I read this, do I believe it?” If the answer is yes, go ahead and use it. If the answer is no, then let go of that story and find one that resonates for you.

"You will not get in trouble if you reject a story; no one is watching to see whether you believe it or not. You are not being tested by the Bible or any other scripture or text. These are tools for you to use to develop your own sense of authority and your own sense of where the Love and the Light are in your life. As long as you are using them as a tool to make your life better, you are right on track. If you are using scriptural stories as a tool to judge yourself or feel bad about yourself, then they can be destructive. Any text can be destructive. It is important that you look for the mythology, look for the common stories and find the Love and the growth in those. From that place of inner authority and Love, the Bible holds a great deal of wisdom in some parts of it and can be an incredibly useful tool for your enlightenment."

Reaching Outside - That's My Problem...

From Circle Of Light:

"The truth of your identity is radiant as the cosmic sun as you live in the center of the truth of All, the heart of Christ, perfect Love made manifest in consciousness and in joyous feeling. When you live like this, alive in My presence as the fish in the ocean, inseparable, breathing Me in and overflowing through your heart with everything that is the truth of all that is divine as it lives as you, here you can stand in the world, free of the duality, the belief in two things.

"You are free of the constant enticement of the ego mind to move you, beloved ones, off of your center, to make you reach into the world for what you need. In that moment you become duality. In that moment of reaching outside of you for whatever it is, for your abundance, for your power, for your Love… In that moment, the belief in the separation from Me and from the truth of who you are is more valid to you than the fact of your inheritance as the heart of God, as the Moment of Creation, held in consciousness and made manifest as the movement of Love."

(bold added by me - it's what caught my attention)

It's Been A Long, Long Time...

Hey, kids. This here monkey (me) has been gone for a while, indeed.

For those of you who don't know, I've been hard at work (hard at play, actually) creating a music and art studio/lounge in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. It's called Sunstone Studios and Lighthouse Lounge (click here to visit our Facebook page), and it's officially open. And now that it is, I can gradually re-incorporate some of the endeavors I had put on hold.

So I'm back on Blue Monkey Island, and since I'm feeling a bit "rapturous" these days, I thought I'd share a passage I came across recently regarding the "Rapture".

As with all material I post on this blog, you are responsible for your own interpretation of these thoughts and ideas. These are not necessarily my thoughts, though I am posting them becuase I find them stimulating or insightful in one way or another.

So enjoy, and don't be afraid to tell me what you think!

It's good to be back on the island...


The following excerpt is from the Spirit Library website. You can read this transcript anothers here.

"Can you tell us more about the Rapture, as understood by some modern Christians? Will it happen? If so, when will the bodies of believers be in the Rapture?"

"What people have called the rapture in certain religions will not occur as a single, massive event. Instead, it is occurring to each of you individually, one by one. This is part of the process of Enlightenment and it is something that has been happening to people throughout history, but very rarely. One of the reasons that some religions have identified the idea of a singular event for the rapture is that as humans, you have picked up on a fact that rapture, or Enlightenment, is happening on a more widespread basis more often now than it ever was before. It is becoming more available to all of you.

"Here is what happens. What you call a rapture experience for an individual is the thing that occurs when you as an individual remember so completely who you really are. Remember so consciously that you indeed are just energy, just light, just spirit that it is no longer possible for you to retain your energy within your human body and you leave your human body. One of the phrases the Keepers use, or Jen uses as a channel for the Keepers is to say that you twinkle out. It is like if matter and energy are interchangeable, which indeed they are, then it actually takes a great deal of effort for your soul to hold all that energy in physical form. When you really truly remember who you are, not just as an idea, not just as a thought, but as a true remembering, yourselves immediately shift back into light and you are no longer in your body. You no longer exist as a human being.

"Of course when this happens, you will no longer be living the human life that you are living now. It is an oversimplification to say that this will be a single event that occurs to all of you, based on some external authority like God or some other divine being who will decide for you when it happens. It will decide for you how it happens or to whom it happens. Actually this is completely driven by you as an individual soul and is not driven by your conscious mind. Your higher self drives it, which is the true you, who can see everything about your journey, knows exactly what is right for you and exactly when. As a human being, consciously, there is nothing for you to wait for actually. Nothing is going to happen to you. You will, in your own time, when it is perfectly right for you, remember who you truly are and shift into light.

"Until that happens, it does not really serve you to try and it certainly does not serve you to try to determine who will be “raptured” and who will not. For in fact, this really has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with who you are on your individual path on your individual journey. As long as you still have something to gain from living your human life, you will stay here. This is true about the choice your soul is making about whether to be raptured or whether to go through a normal human death. This rapture, or twinkling, is no easier or better than going through death. It is just a very different process. Death gives you a process. It gives you a journey to move from your human self back to your higher self. Twinkling, or the rapture, eliminates that process and simply allows you to simply switch in a single moment.

"From the prospective of the Keepers, or any of the higher beings, there is no good or bad, there is no judgment on whether you are good if you go through a rapture or not. There is just no weight or gravity here. People who think about the idea of the rapture through their religions, part of what happens is those religious institutions lead you to see this process as being a reflection of whether you are being good or bad. Each of you who are working with the idea of the rapture, you assign a great deal of heaviness to the idea of the rapture. For in your heart, you have been led to believe that your goodness, your own divinity, your own worthiness, relies on whether you go through a rapture or not.

"As long as you still have a question about your own goodness, as long as you still feel as if there is something wrong with you, as if you were something other than light or love, as long as you feel that, then you still have a good reason to be here on Planet Earth living a conscious, human life because much of human life is set up for you to forget who you really are -- to forget that you are truly good through and through. Then to go through a long, slow process of healing, otherwise known as remembering who you really are, coming to realize that everything is light. Everything is love. That you are made of light and love and that it is inherently antithetical to who you are to act out of any motivation other than love. As long as you are still working to remember that, you will not go through the rapture. You will stay here working on that. That is what you came here for."

Simply BE Divine

"We would like to talk this month about self acceptance for all your traits and perceived flaws. Each of you is a spark of Divine Creation. It is impossible for you to be anything short of perfection. But as you enter into a dimension of duality, you forget your perfection in order to experience something wholly different, to experience separation and imperfection. You enjoy the illusion of the game and you have experienced all versions of the game in infinite ways.

"Now the time has come to once again perceive that perfection, to know all flaws and faults are but illusions, all wrong doings are but agreements with friends to don a role for play and exploration. Forgiveness is not something that is to be sought, but rather a shifting of awareness to the divine state of all things.

"This is the time for “self forgiveness” or rather to view your own divine nature and your connection to The Divine (or Source if that is a more comfortable term for you.) These coming days will be filled with changes and new vibrational selections, and as each memory of past or future regrets surface or judgments of self arise, bring your focus back to your divine self, to this moment and your experience of reality. That truly is all that is needed to generate expanded awareness and a complete acceptance. Each re-focusing back to the divine self will allow you to become more of the expanded being that you are. So for those of you who seek to increase your vibration, or ascend as you say, there is nothing to fix or to release or to unblock. Simply BE divine."

Poetry in Emotion

"As the spiritual seeker becomes more mature, each experience is another opportunity to work with a surface emotion and to refine or purify that emotion by offering it up as a spontaneous and pure feeling, without judgment, without asking the self to be one who feels only the positive emotions. Each emotion starts out, in the immature entity, as that which is confused and chaotic and has a high degree of static or noise as opposed to signal. Consequently, as a spiritual seeker, each time an emotion arises you are working to feel it without shrinking from it or reaching towards it, the goal being not to do anything with the emotion except to allow it to sink into the consciousness of the present moment.

"As you give respect and honor to surface emotions you allow them the spaciousness to begin to filter down past the first levels of impulsivity and self-judgment. And as you allow yourself the space and the time for this emotion to tell its story to you, you are sinking into the roots of your own consciousness and beginning to be able to feel each emotion as a more distinct, pure and clarified color, shall we say."

Harry Carrey

I'm feeling impulsive today, so much so that I am actually typing something brand new and posting it on this here blog. This is something I haven't done for a few years now, and it feels slightly unfamiliar.

You see, for the past two years I have been posting quotes and passages from other sources. Primarily because I had ceased to feel any sort of inspiration to write. Perhaps I had written myself into a corner, but I most definitely had nothing more to say.

And now I find myself, on this first day of March, in the year 2010, following an unforseen impulse to write something. Anything. Nothing in particular.

Is this the start of a new phase for me? Have I spiraled around to another turn as "Don the writer" ? Perhaps... perhaps...

I sent a letter to Jim Carrey last week. Why? Well, primarily because I've thought all along that he would play the title role in the big screen version of THE DAY HARRY SUED GOD.

I watched the video footage of his little talk at the GATE event recently:

And as a watched him speak, it confirmed my suspicion that he's the man.

I'm enjoying the friendly little battle between my rational (doubting) mind which says: "This is silly, it'll never happen, what a waste of a perfectly good postage stamp, not to mention the envelope, paper, and ink" and my heart, which say "Yes, indeed, this sounds like a wonderful experience, let's do it!"

I now know for sure that I have accomplished and progressed, because my heart is winning this battle (which really isn't a battle, but more of a game of Twister).

Yes, my heart has won, and there is a letter on its way to Jim, or to a mailbag that Jim may never open, and fortunately for me I can honestly say that it matters not whether Jim reads the letter, because he and I are sitting off in the other realms somewhere at this very moment laughing and making fun of one another and reminiscing about that time Don sent Jim that letter, and wasted that postage stamp, and wrote all about it on his blog...

I Shall Not Want

"Be aware when you ask for anything that you literally are expressing that you are limited. You are expressing lack. So, what is the opposite of that? It is to find things to be grateful for. More importantly, for all of those things you want give thanks and hold in your heart that you already have them."

And What About NOW?

"For just a moment, before you do anything or think anything at all, just feel the clean and pure substance of this moment, this one right now, right here, pure and innocent, waiting to be filled with your actions and your dreams.

"It awaits you now, this moment, waiting for you to embrace it fully and fill it with your presence, joy and love.

"You are born anew in this moment, right now. Sparkling and shining, innocent and open, clean and pure, filled with promise and beauty. This is who you are."

Hey, Give The (Half) Brother A Break!

The following is from the Akashic Records, through Jen Eramith MA.
You can read more transcripts from Jen here.


What is Barack Obama's karmic role in leading the U.S. at this time?

Barack Obama's karmic contract is to be a leader for the world, not just a leader for the U.S. His legal contract is to lead the U.S, but his karmic contract is to be a leader for the world. His karmic contract is to be a catalyst for enlightening change in the world. A catalyst is a substance or an object that facilitates change. It does not make the change occur – instead, it initiates and enhances a process and that is precisely what his role is to be. In fact, his contract to be a catalyst for a certain process has already been accomplished. His initial contract was fulfilled during and just after his election campaign. The changes he was meant to facilitate occurred in the hearts and minds of people across the world.

With his initial karmic contract fulfilled, he is now working to support the changes that are only possible if they are created and upheld by the citizens of the world. A catalyst is a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction, or a person that inspires an event or change to take place. A catalyst can signal a process to begin and it can enhance or speed up a process that is already underway. Barack Obama is doing both. He helped initiate a process and he is also helping to enhance or make more efficient a process that is already under way. The process is human empowerment, which is both a result of and the driving force for healing of the human family.

Barack Obama is not the only catalyst and he is not the only leader involved in this work. There are many other world leaders, both official and non-official, who do this work. The catalyst that he provides is unique. This role can be seen most clearly in what was fulfilled during his election campaign, where most of his karmic contract was fulfilled. The speeches that he gave and the particular way that he ran his campaign catalyzed a process inside millions of people across the world. The messages and actions that took place during his campaign initiated and activated a process within millions of individuals, and a process across many societies, by which human beings are becoming empowered enough to dismantle oppressive forces and create more light and love, effectually making the world a better place. (As you might imagine, this is the dramatically short version.)

In a sense, Barack Obama’s karmic contract was to be a catalyst for hope. Hope only works in the individuals who choose to carry it or act on it. The effects of his catalytic process were most outwardly apparent in the ways that people were activated to vote or to make changes in their communities. But the greatest actual effects occurred within people’s minds and hearts. The massive shift toward hope and empowerment cannot be measured but rest assured, the world is a more peaceful place and more people have moved forward in enlightenment based on the role he has played. Now, the work and the way forward are yours to determine.

Once Barack Obama entered the presidency, his role as a catalyst has been somewhat diminished because people have a tendency to cease their own empowerment when they turn to a powerful leader. This occurs because people, through the dynamics of oppression, have learned to turn their own authority over to their leaders. People in nearly every culture on the planet have learned to wait for their leaders to take decisive action, and in waiting each individual forfeits their own power to affect change.

Citizens in the U.S. have exhibited a tendency to imagine that once Barack Obama was in an official leadership position that he would take care of things. When you wait for your leaders to instruct you, or you sit back and blame others for their missteps, you lose track of your own power, and it becomes easy to lose faith in your own ability to create positive change in the world around you.

Remember that all of you have been oppressed in one way or another. It is not your fault that you have been oppressed, but it is your responsibility to actively choose to reassign your personal authority to yourself, to re-determine and revitalize yourselves to make positive changes in the world around you. This reclaiming of your personal power, and it’s collective potential, ultimately is the process that Barack Obama was meant to catalyze. His calling is to inspire all the citizens in the world into action. He will not make the world a better place through his actions; instead, he inspires all of you to make the world a better place.

As long as each of you is taking responsibility and doing what you can to improve the world within your sphere of influence, then you are using him positively as a catalyst. If people do not use his leadership role to further inspire and empower themselves into action, then the usefulness of his role will expire. It will no longer be useful for him to be in the role of a world leader officially if the role of catalyst is not being fulfilled. It is vitally important that all of you continue to remember that he is not here to make change, he is here to inspire you to make change. That is the role he came here to perform, that is the karmic contract that he signed up for. Most of this has been accomplished on his end of the contract. Of course as a president he has legal and societal contracts to fulfill, but outcome of his karmic contract now depends upon you.

How will the changes happening in Ascension and Enlightenment relate to the next elections in the United States?

The next major elections in the United States occur in November of 2010, 2011, and 2012. The changes that are occurring through Enlightenment and Ascension are creating societal instability. More of you have come to recognize that you want to make positive changes in your lives, and that you actually have the ability to make those changes. This realization comes as you are no longer willing to buy into or put up with societal oppression; either oppression of yourself or of those around you. As you make these shifts inwardly, you create a dramatic shift in the fabric of society.

Ultimately the shift is toward a new, more stable system. But instability is a hallmark of change. You have to unravel the current system in order to make space for the new system to be built. If you think of the two political parties in the U.S. as being on two sides of a pendulum, each election swings the balance of power toward one side or the other. As you move toward a system change, the swinging of the pendulum becomes stronger and more erratic. Eventually, the pendulum will break free, so to speak. It will no longer serve you to have a political system based on duality. In the meantime, you will continue to see the balance of power shift more drastically with each election. No one side will triumph eventually. Instead, in the coming decades, you will revise the entire system.

For the next few years, you will continue to see a bigger, stronger, more rapid and more dramatic swing when the power shifts to the other party. It appears that there is an increase in polarization in U.S. politics, when in fact the thing that is actually changing is that within most of you that polarization is diminishing. Fewer of you are willing to gives yourselves over completely to one side or the other, and therefore you are creating change; you are creating a shift.

The first result of the shift is the increase in the pendulum swing. But then the pendulum, when it comes back to center, will come back to a more stable center, for far more of you are finding residence in what you call a political middle ground. The political middle ground is simply the space where people tend to turn to their own authority, to rely on their own thinking and intuition to make decisions rather than turning to a pre-set paradigm, a particular leader, or habits or behaviors that are dictated by institutions.

You are seeing an unraveling occur. This has been happening for 30 years; it will likely happen for another ten or twenty. What you are likely to see in the next few elections is a further swinging of the pendulum. In the past you may have seen one party stay in power for eight or ten years at a time, you are now going to find that parties tend to stay in power two or three years at a time.

The shifts will increase. They will appear more dramatic and then suddenly, at some point in the next ten years or so, you will find the swings become greatly diminished. It is not a guarantee, but right now that is the outlook for U.S. elections. This dynamic is occurring before stability is occurring across the world in all different government systems, in all different political dynamics. You can apply that dynamic to every other government and political system. All across the world, the change of Enlightenment is occurring and therefore as people are waking up, they are less willing to hold the current institutions of power and oppressive institutions in place. You are going to continue to see more unraveling and more dramatic swings in political power.

In some parts of the world this will continue for another fifty or sixty years. Ultimately your governments and political systems will need to revise themselves according to how much their citizens have empowered themselves as individuals.

And it all begins with each one of you. The choices you make and the power you develop in your own life has a massive impact on the potential for collective Enlightenment. The journey of a thousand miles truly does begin with a single step, and all of you began taking those steps long ago. As each of you moves through Enlightenment, you make a radical difference in the potential outcome for your government and political systems. Your life and your power matters more than you imagine!

A Few Words From Uncle Albert

“A human being is part of the whole called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness.

"This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only a few persons nearest to us.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion and to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

-Albert Einstein

Resistance is Futile!

"The biggest challenge most humans face in their lifetimes is their resistance to what they do not want. And yet resistance only brings more of what you do not want.

"There are two principles -- or laws, if you like -- at work here.

"The first is what many of you call the Law of Attraction. Simply said, the Law of Attraction dictates you will always get more of what you put your focus on. Always. No exceptions.

"If you are focusing on something through your resistance to it, you'll get more of it. And if you're focusing on something through your appreciation of it, you'll get more of it. You get what you focus on. Period.

"The second principle is simply allowing all others to be whatever they choose to be. Whether you agree with it or not. You will find great peace and joy, friends, in simply following your own bliss, and ignoring what others are doing.

"Resist what others are doing and you'll end up frustrated and drained. Allow others what they are doing and concentrate on what you are doing, and you'll end up joyful and energized."

Like A Prayer Machine

"The fact about prayer is that any time you are in a state of joy and self-love, you are in the state of prayer. You are a living, walking, breathing prayer. That is a reason some people, when they walk in the room, everything suddenly feels better, lighter, more joyful. Because the person carries with her or him that resonance of prayer -- of love and light. The only way they can do this is by having come to terms with themselves, come to accept themselves and love themselves enough that they are able to transmit love all around them. The best thing you can do with your prayer or meditation practice is continue to find the insights you need to understand where you judge yourself, where you let yourself down, where you are critical of yourself and to continually let those things go. Instead choosing all of the different states or ways of being, that facilitate your sense of love, forgiveness for your mistakes, joy in everything that you do. That is a state of prayer and ultimately you are like a prayer machine. Your natural state is to be in that state of prayer. It may feel like you are fighting an uphill battle, you are actually moving back toward your natural state. Let it be easy. Employ a sense of curiosity and forgiveness and patience with yourself; let it be easy. (Jan 2010)"

The Collapse Of The Third Dimension

"The healing and release work you do for yourself extends to all of humanity and releases the fear polarity that is the dominant aspect of the third dimensional path. As the earth moves through ascension, as it is doing now, the third dimension is collapsing and its energy is being replaced by higher vibrations that do not contain the energetic connections to fear and chaos. While this is happening on the earth level, it is also happening in each of you and as you release your own connections to fear and chaos, you are collapsing your third dimensional reality.

"Each dimensional shift replaces the previous one that held the prevailing energy. For the third, the prevailing energy is fear and ascension replaces that with unconditional love. As the dimension collapses the individual results will be seen in the flow of energy in each reality. Any fear-based manifestation will begin to collapse as the connections to it are removed. Every thought or belief that is released or healed removes a connection and collapses its third dimensional aspect, replacing it with a higher vibration.

"This collapse can appear to be fearful or it can be a joyful experience, depending on your willingness to embrace this powerful transformation. Humanity has little experience of dimensions beyond the third, except for some memory of Home, and they are not able to see as an opportunity to step into their own mastery and divinity. As the third dimension collapses it also release anything that is based in this energy, which includes all structures on the emotional, physical and intellectual planes that are connected to it. This can feel like the 'end of the world' but it is simply the result of the replacement of one dimensional level with another.

"Humanity agreed that this would be their ascension path and it is being accomplished according to the divine plan. The end of the third dimension is the end of fear, the release of the veil that separates humanity from higher planes of being and allows the creation of the spiritual human. This is a time to celebrate, to remember the promise of the ascension path and the release of the limitations that you have accepted as part of life but which are contrary to your truth. Celebrate this as confirmation of your progress and be willing to receive the blessings of the new world paradigm that has been prepared for you and awaits your presence."

Some Thoughts on 2010

"Now, what about 2010? We stated earlier that this is a pivotal year, and that is so. There is nothing carved in stone here, but there are some general trends to observe. We state again (we can’t say this too frequently, especially just now) that YOU incarnated in this body at this time in this place for a reason, and that reason has a lot to do with creating and supporting these changes.

"Others are grateful to you. Your entire life isn’t only about serving a higher purpose, of course, but the majority of you reading this incarnated at this time so that you’d be among friends with the same idea. Turn to your right and your left and say hello to your neighbor. The people you pass on the street. The people in line at the cashier at the grocer. The people in the long snaking lines of cars moving slowly across endless highways. These are the people who also chose to be here now. You are effortlessly connected to one another in this way.

Global Changes

"2010 is pivotal because much change will be evident this year. Not the far-reaching long-term things we mentioned earlier, although those will be a part of the overall change, but you can expect the following:

"Lots of people will be losing loved ones this year, people of all ages who are choosing to transition out of life as a way of “opting out” of some of the other changes taking place. Making room for the new. There will be collective grief over this unusual amount of transition, but at the same time there will be joy – the summer bloom turns to dried autumn foliage and then to bare winter earth, returning once again in spring to a new green shoot and a sense of promise. This kind of deep change affects people on so many levels.

"Political instability or a sense of insecurity, and sometimes a seeming lack of direction. This will be evident in many areas including the U.S, Canada, some countries in South America, and Japan, among others. The balance is beginning to discernibly shift away from old powers to other parts of the globe and this will be even more evident this year. Look for increased positive attention on several unexpected political models that show the shape of things to come: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Chile, Cuba, Finland, Guyana, Honduras, Iceland, Laos, Malta, Netherlands, Sri Lanka, and Uruguay.

"A shift by governments that use stealth and covert activity toward more overt blame. Incidents could be strategically created in an effort to maintain a sense of control over what is feared by those governments to be a losing battle in the eventual shift of power mentioned above. This could result this year or soon in a possible military takeover of a major western government. This would not likely be obvious from the outside, even to the inhabitants of that country, and would likely be presented as a need to protect citizens. We could repeat now that this would be, overall, an interim measure and that further change toward a more gentle way of being will be evident sooner than later.

Personal Transformation

"We realize that some of what we see as potential for 2010 on a global level can seem frightening from your present perspective. There is, however, balance in this process of change. Nothing happens without regard to the overall eventual result on a collective basis – not even the most minute, personal event is overlooked. But real and lasting change occurs from deep inside, which does often result in discomfort for a time. On a personal level for most people this year, change is present in profound and uplifting ways:

"By mid-year, a sense of peace and elation settles over the world, affecting a good many people and allowing most of you to fall into the “flow” of your life. This involves really manifesting what it is you are here doing – in other words, a life purpose or life task. By mid-year, then, a good many of you will feel purposeful and peaceful.

"Meditation practices deepen. More people connect with “old-world” ways: herbal lore, shamanism, flower essences, work with gems and minerals, animal wisdom, etc. More people begin feeling tapped into personal intuition or spiritual guides. This is an excellent time to deepen your practice or to begin one, especially by mid-March or so.

Though more people will be without homes, those who don’t choose to exit this year will find the care they need. Perhaps in your back yard, or from your open hand.

"By year-end, then, most of you will be in a vastly different place on a personal level. To support your inner process, which in turn supports your ability to take in what’s going on in the world around you, we can suggest:

"Find something that matters to you. Whether it’s a particular tree on your walk or a special person or a cause, there is something that really matters to you. Figure out what it is this year and give it love.

"Observe the world around you. Whether it’s cars and concrete or it’s blooming cherry trees or tall pines, there is a beautiful world around you. Treat yourself every day with a few minutes simply observing what you see, without judging the merits of the scene. You’ll find yourself, after time, feeling compassion for that world around you.

"Deepen your practice — or begin one — of connecting to your own higher wisdom. There are many avenues for this, including scrying, channeling, or simply listening for that deep inner voice inside you. Find a teacher to assist you if you feel guided to do so.

"The most helpful thing you can do for your planet is to stay — as best you can — connected to yourself and that which surrounds you.

"It’s a wonderful year ahead, wonderful and tragic and beautiful and human. Make it yours, this year. You are here because you chose to be here."

"Doubt is pretty much part of the human condition. It is just another one of those little monsters that you just don't give any attention to. Nobody has gone through this physical reality without having doubt. Like when I sat down here this morning, I didn't have a clue as to what I was going to do or say. I don't know what I am going to do until I sit down and do it. We all go through this when you live from the heart. You simply have to get out of the way, and let your heart speak. So you might feel a little uncomfortable about new things in the first few minutes, but it goes away, because you are not feeding that monster any more. It starves it to death. You could feed the monster, and say "I am afraid so I am not going to do it". Then what that does is it just starts snowballing into bigger and bigger fears and into more and more limitations. Then you find yourself way over here somewhere, where you didn't want to be at all. We have all done this collectively on a big level in the world. We are all now working to pull ourselves back into the place that we know we came here to be."

Is There A Jesus In The House?

Question: Can you speak to the nature of Christ energy or Christ consciousness? Who is Christ and how does this Being relate to the evolution of humankind and the earth?

Answer: Christ is a distinct energetic entity. It is a consciousness. You can envision Christ energy or Christ consciousness as a collection of many Divine Beings whose primary purpose is the Light of Compassion. The group is immense. In fact, it includes many human beings who are alive on the planet now! The Keepers have discussed the journey of humankind -- the journey that you have taken to separate or create an illusion of separation between the different parts of yourselves, including your bodies, your minds, your hearts and your spirits. You imagine yourselves to be composed of these components rather than knowing yourselves as whole.

The journey toward that illusion of separation has been long and different civilizations and different beings have helped you create that illusion. They helped build the separations between your mind and you body (that is what helped make human beings physical in the first place), between your minds and your hearts, between your hearts and your bodies, and so on. All of these different components of you have been separated through the efforts of different civilizations and individual beings, including Divine Beings and humans.

The Beings you know today to be spiritual masters or teachers are those who have lived to serve as reminders that you are whole. Each of these different leaders or teachers has given particular messages or brought a particular residence to help reweave or remind you that it is possible to reweave you back to wholeness. In a simple way, we could say that all of those teachers and leaders have existed to remind you of who you truly are: Your higher selves, your Divine Selves. Ultimately what that means is that all of you are made of Love.

Christ consciousness has a particular resonance in regard to all of this. Christ consciousness resides in the connection between your heart and your spirit. Christ consciousness resonates in the imagined space between your heart and your spirit. When Christ consciousness resonates there, your heart and your spirit become realigned and they become one. Christ consciousness is something that all of you have available and many of you are actually expressions of Christ consciousness. You are part of the group energy that is Christ consciousness or that holds it in this world. Many of you feel drawn to Christ consciousness because it is like home to you. Many others of you feel drawn to it because you know you need it. It does not have to come through Christianity. That is just the social structure that human beings put around it. Of course, like any social structure, it has warped the true energy of Christ consciousness; it has created all kinds of drama or power differentials or all of kinds of oppression. Any social institution has those components so in order to connect with Christ consciousness, there is no need to associate with any particular religion but you can find Christ consciousness through any particular religion. Christ consciousness is a birthright of every human being. It is simply the connection between your heart and your spirit.

Question: Who is Christ in relation to the person, Jesus? Has Christ energy been incarnated on earth before?

Answer: The human being, Jesus Christ, who lived roughly two thousand years ago, was an expression of Christ consciousness. That human being was both an individual human soul and at the same time that human being was occupied by the group energy that is Christ consciousness. Take a moment to consider how both are possible when you look at it from outside the third dimension. In a sense, that soul, that being who chose to live as Jesus Christ, chose to live as a channel for a larger energy rather than as an individual ego. He was a channel for Christ consciousness. In a sense you could say he was an individual soul but at the same time, the way he existed in this world was as a group-energy so that many of you may feel a close association without lifetime because many of you were there in spirit as part of that group collective energy. That is the relationship.

Christ consciousness has incarnated many other times on Planet Earth, never in such a distinct way - there is a reason that human being caused such a stir in your history. He operated as a portal of Christ consciousness and infused the earth with it. When you get a big infusion of divine energy, often the first thing that people do is to immediately see all the shadows that they could not see before. It is like shining a light in a dark cave – the first thing you see are the shadows created.

When Christ consciousness arrived in the form of a person, people immediately began to deal with all of the things that were holding them back. This caused the societies affected by Christ to step into an even darker age than you had ever seen before based on that Christ consciousness having come. Just as when you turn on the lights in a room that was previously dark, you can suddenly see the dirt and the mess and the shadows that you could not see when you were in the dark. Humanity had a lot of healing to do after that channel of Christ consciousness was brought in through that single human lifetime.

There has not been another lifetime lived by a person that brought Christ consciousness in that same way in such a widely-known manner. It was only needed once and it was needed at that particular time to bring your darkness into a new age. You do not have the same darkness now and you do not have the same need. Instead, Christ consciousness appears and many people give themselves over to Christ consciousness for parts of their lives or most of their lives. Mother Teresa is one of them. There are many, many others. The Dalai Lama is one of them. See how it is not bound to religion? Gandhi is one of them. They are all part of Christ consciousness. In addition, there are untold millions of people who also have been expressions of Christ consciousness in their lifetimes.

Some readers might recognize this in yourselves. If you feel that you are part of Christ consciousness, then you can know that you came here to help all of humanity. But you must first and foremost realign your own heart with your own spirit, then to help everybody else to do the same. The way that is done, the only way that is done, is through love. The only way it is done is by developing, establishing and developing a capacity for unconditional love and then exerting that capacity or offering that love in every circumstance you possibly can, in every way you can possibly come up with. You came here to love. It sounds quite lovely but it can actually lead to quite a difficult and painful life because you will be particularly sensitive to the times when Love is blocked or thrown away. Your calling is to continually draw back to and foster your capacity for unconditional Love and share it every way that you can.

It's NOT The Economy, Stupid!

"Your feeling states and your "vibrational frequency" determine your level of abundance - not others and not circumstances out in the world. Those who believe the economy is responsible for any challenges they are experiencing around prosperity are perceiving "in reverse," so to speak. You are always the source and cause of your experience of reality. What you manifest directly correlates with the essence of your energy. Your feeling states are barometers for your thoughts, beliefs and spiritual understandings. If you hold negative feelings toward anyone or anything, this pulls down your feeling state and your energetic resonance. When you manifest from a low-vibrational energy, you will experience roadblocks, disappointments, illness, accidents, and overall feelings of being out of sync with the universe. These experiences are not a "punishment", but wakeup calls to help you see that you need to examine the beliefs, intentions, motivations, visions, and identities you currently hold."

What's Love Got To Do With It?

"The core universal energies are encoded to love, joy, peace, and happiness. They support any activities immersed in these energies. So ANY project in which you are happily humming along because you absolutely love what you’re doing, will be successful for you. Conversely, any project which is done purely for money (without a love of the activity) will not last, and nor will the money which is gained from the loveless project. Therefore, immediately cease all activities which are engaged in purely for money. Either leave the situation, or bring some love into the activities. This is a necessity."

What's All This About 2012?

"There is a concept that is being widely accepted among those in your grouping of shared belief system that says that the year 2012 is going to be a momentous year, and you should get your ducks in order right now while you still have time before 2012 gets here.

"And you have been wondering, "What more can I do? How can I get my ducks in order when I don't even know where my ducks are? Or how many I might have?" So you do a lot of the mental gymnastics about the year 2012.

"Now, there is a thread of truth that runs through this prophecy, because the year 2012 is going to be an advantageous year, but it is not going to be the end of everything. It is going to be part of the process that you are already in, and there will be an extended time from the year 2012 for what you call another five decades after that of a "knowing" that is being already built: the remembrance of your own divinity, of your own power, of where you have come from and why you have come.

"It has all been in process, and the year 2012 is going to be an advantageous year, because many who are in this grouping of belief system are going to be expecting it, and that which you expect has power, power to manifest.

"It is not going to be cataclysmic to the point where it is going to be the end of our holy Mother Earth. It is not going to be the end of this reality. It is going to be an evolutionary process that goes forward and will extend for a good period of time as it grows and evolves upon itself.

"You have already set the building blocks in place, and you are going to keep on building. What you will see is a growing awareness within yourself, because you have prayed for this, you have asked for this, you have been preparing for this. There is going to be a growing awareness with the friends and co-workers, and ones who will not even use the same terminology that you use, of their purpose. Many have wondered and are wondering why they are here. They also wonder why they struggle. They wonder, "Am I just here for a short period of time, and is that all there is? Is there just one lifetime?" as is so often put forward in your religious/philosophical threads of thinking: that there is just one lifetime and that there cannot be the reincarnation, the remaking of realities.

"So they are questioning, "How do I make the most of this one lifetime?" To introduce to them an idea that perhaps life is ongoing is a bit of an evolutionary leap for them, and yet they are asking to know this. And you are coming into your own power of remembering that you have been here many, many times and that you have choice always whether to return to this reality or any other reality on holy Mother Earth or to go to another constellation or galaxy to adventure in other forms and other ways.

"As you remember that you have choice, you begin to feel in the heart the expansion of divinity that is you. After the time period that you call 2012, there is going to be yet a progression of challenges for humankind, but there is also going to be a progression of understanding that the challenges are not so much negative as they are gifts.

"It will be a process which will build exponentially upon itself, very much the same as the seed that opens up and comes up through the ground, and then the plant reaches out and will extend a leaf and then another leaf and then another leaf and then a flower and then the fruit.

"You are going to be part of it, because you are adding your energy to it. You are going to understand what is going on at a very deep level, and at the same time you are going to be taking part in what seems to be the world level but from a different perspective.

"You have this human lifetime so that you could be part of an awakening. There is a cycle, an evolutionary cycle from a place that remembers its divinity, knows that it is creating, into the place where it identifies with whatever is being created and identifies with that creation to the place where it is forgotten, temporarily, who is doing the creating, and then there is the process where you are now: of awakening to realizing, "I am the one who is creating," and then the realization that, "If I am creating, I can change whatever I see happening."

"And how do you change that? You change it by changing your perception. You have the power at any moment to change your perception of what is going on. No one else can change your perception except you. You have great power, because you can change it. No one can take that from you. You are the one who holds the power of perception and of belief, and that is why, when you come to the year of 2012, there is going to be a gathering, a celebration if you will, that you are already planning at a deep level.

"The year 2012 is going to be an advantageous year, but it is not going to be the ending of everything. It is going to be part of the ongoing process of the evolution of awakening. The cycle itself is going to extend past that date.

"Every concept that is given to you, every prophecy, every message carries a thread of truth with it. It depends on how you perceive that truth. And I am saying to you, why would you not want to perceive it as good? You have done the suffering already. You have been there, done that. I have been there, done a bit of it, finished with it, completed - as you can be and as you are: complete.

"Dream big dreams. Go for it. Allow the dream in the heart to be big, and then allow the mind to figure out how to do it in the world. Do not worry about all of the small details. The mind is going to take care of that. The mind is going to chew on all of the details like a dog chews on a bone.

"The mind will be very busy as it comes up with the suggestions as to how to do the big dream of the heart.

"Take a moment now. Take a deep breath, and ask yourself, "What is my dream? If I could have, if I could do, if I could be anything that I want to be or do or have, what would it be? What would I do? Who would I be? How would I be? What is my dream?"

"Allow that feeling to stay with you. This evening when you put the head upon the pillow go back to that feeling of, "What do I want in my life? How do I want it to be? How do I want to be in my life? What is my greatest desire?" Then live from that space as if it could be true, because it can.

"You are the one who can make it happen."

The "Gift" Of Cancer

The following excerpt contains some interesting points to ponder regarding one person's experience with cancer and challenges us to view the idea of cancer from a higher perspective:


“What Is My Cancer Telling Me?”

"When you are feeling Stigmatized, you really believe that you are worthy of reproach, rejection, and isolation by others. You want to be loved, but you believe that there is something wrong with you, or that you have done something that merits this treatment from others.

"But when you are feeling Indignant, you become angry about it. You become stubborn and demanding because others have not loved you in the way that you expected.

"When you are Indignant, you demand the attention of others. You expect attention as tribute for the suffering and isolation that you have had to endure during your life. It’s not that you are feeling particularly loving or affectionate toward others. Instead, you are seeking retribution. It’s a way to punish them (and the world) for not loving you, in the way that you would have liked when you were younger.

"Your cancer is a way for your ego to play the roles of Stigmatized and Indignant at the same time. Here is how it works…

"By using this cancer to feel defective and marginalized by others (a feeling that you have often had), you now have the perfect reason to accept this condition as your reality. Your ego has gone beyond rationalizing its misbeliefs about your identity, and has given you the “gift of cancer” as a way to demonstrate and finally prove to you that you ARE in fact, Stigmatized.

"Your ego has also given you the “gift of cancer” as a way to get the attention and sympathy from others that you have always wanted to feel – and that Indignant demands from the world for having been ignored so long. “How can they neglect you now, when the cause of your misery is so apparent?” This is what your ego is telling you now, when it plays the role of Indignant.

"Your ego is trying to satisfy both of these erroneous beliefs about yourself at the same time. But it is a game.

"Your cancer is a symbol to yourself, and to the world, that you feel stigmatized, but that you also deserve love and attention because of it. It is the perfect way to get it… or is it? Will people finally love and support you because of your illness, or will they further shun you because of the fear they have around the stigma of your cancer?

"And if they get too close to you with their love and support, or by telling you how you ought to deal with this challenging situation, will you push them away indignantly as punishment for your past grievances? Or will you let them be there for you, just as they are?

"This insane solution that your ego has found – to let you believe that you are Stigmatized, Indignant, and loved, all at the same time – may actually be backfiring now. Isn’t it time to expose this game for what it is; drop it, and move on?

"Why not focus, instead, on the Truth? “You are a Child of God, and God also. This IS the Truth About You.” Believe this, and watch your life change."

"My dear, the life that your Creator has envisioned for you is a different one. You are meant to live a life of joy, happiness, and bliss. Even now, the mention of it may seem unreal to you.

"Yes, you are meant to live a life that is free from pain, fear, and suffering.

"Now, how do you claim that life? How do you claim the life that your Creator had in mind for you when you came to Earth?

"Well, dear friend. It is quite simple. And yet, you believe it requires too much from you. Yes, you still believe the voice of the ego that constantly rationalizes your circumstances to you. You believe it, when it tells you that too much is required of you. That you have to look at yourself and figure out too many complicated things.

"But the truth is that nothing is required of you. Nothing, other than letting go.

"So, it all comes down to who is making the decisions here. Who is taking charge of your life? Are you going to let your ego sacrifice your body and your life for the sake of conflicting beliefs about who you are? Or are you going to take charge here? Are you going to take charge of your Inner Life and purge all that is false about you, so that only the Truth remains? Are you willing to let the falseness go, in order to live with the Truth?

"Yes, you can truly let go of the pain, fear, and suffering that your ego has used to keep you imprisoned with false identities for so long.

"But how do you do that?

"First, you should understand that you are destined for a life of joy. It is God's Will for you. Even for you! Yes.

"Then, you are invited to look at the role-playing game that your ego has created for you. Look at these roles. Name them. Expose them. And anytime feeling Indignant or Stigmatized appears to be your only choice... choose again. Reach even deeper, and find out what is there beyond this belief in suffering. When you do, you will find that peace is there. And you will find an ocean of love. Yes, an ocean of great, all encompassing love. This is God's Love. It is God's Love for you, too.

"It is there for you to touch, to feel, and to invite back into your life. Accept it, dear friend. And then, make it happen. Bring that Love into your life, and make it your daily companion. Let it be your guide in life. You deserve it. You deserve it deeply.

"Feel the waves of God’s Love washing over you now, cleansing this cancer from your body and correcting the lies and misperceptions about you that have poisoned your mind.

"Know that as you heal your mind, you will take an important step in treating the physical condition of your cancer. It is not the only step that you will take. But it is essential. It will put you back in charge of your Inner Life. And from this place of Inner Truth, your physical health will have the greatest potential for improvement.

"You are deeply loved, my dearest.

Say "Yes" To Life

"You are here on earth to express the freedom and magic of the spiritual realms you come from. You are here to bring it into form and matter and make it available for experience to both yourself and others. Yes, you are carriers of light, where light stands for freedom, ease and joy. And you have been on earth before, with the same desire and impetus to kindle the light of creation here and spread joy and insight. Allow yourself to feel it again. Know who you are. You need not be or do anything special here, you don’t have to achieve anything except to remember who you are and allow joy to fill you again. That is your job: to get back to your original state of wonder and joy amidst energies which seem to point in a wholly different direction.

"You have been put under pressure. The reality of earth, the way people think, the beliefs of society can weigh heavily on you and soak you in forgetfulness for a while. Remember, you are divinity in the flesh. Light is pouring through you right now, through your hands, through your eyes, feel it. It has never left you, but all of you have been told at some point of your life that this light cannot flow freely into the open. You believe you have to hide it and keep it inside, for fear of being “different”. The constraint to be normal, getting locked into what other people might think of you, that’s probably the worst prison on earth. It’s not being in the body that limits you so. The true limitation comes from allowing in the many heavy, fearful beliefs of society and have them diminish your divine radiance.

"My wish is to show you a way out of there, and the key is: dare to receive joy again in your life, feel that it is your birthright! It is simply who you are. You are the joy of God made manifest. And to be so, you need not have achieved anything, in the worldly sense of the word. You only need to be one with who you are. You need to feel that you are fine as you are here and now. There is nothing you fall short of, there is nothing lacking. Embrace the totality of who you are now, your fears, emotional blockages, and yet, at the same time, the deep sense of wonder and vitality at the bottom of your being. Life itself flows through you and wishes to impart on you its many miraculous gifts. You have undertaken the journey of incarnation in this body, in this society, in this material dimension. That is enough. By that, you already have shown your great courage and faith. Now trust that you are allowed to receive everything you need in your life. Feel the pure joy of being in this moment. Let yourself relax into it.

"Imagine that from now on, there is nothing you “must do” in your life. If you would really grant yourself that freedom, your life would consistently flow smooth and easy. I understand that this runs counter to much that you have been told by your parents, teachers, employers, etcetera. Society imparts on you that you have to work hard and diligently to develop the necessary skills and abilities to cope with reality. It tells you to keep small and focus on what is possible rather than on what you dream and hope for. Not only society tells you this, even a lot of spiritual teachings have a rather stern and disciplinary outlook on how to achieve enlightenment.

"Imagine that you release the very idea of goals and achievements. Imagine saying to yourself: I am as I am, and I am completely okay as I am. What liberation! If you can allow yourself to be this relaxed, things will start to flow in your life, and you will see that exactly the opposite happens from what society tells you to expect. Things will start to happen for you without having to work hard for it. If you can be at one with yourself and accept things as they are, you will invite a flow of peace which will bring miracles into your life. By accepting yourself as you are, you say “yes” to life, to being here on earth, and you allow yourself to receive anything you want simply because you are who you are, an indelible part of God, cherished and loved unconditionally."
