Life in the Castle

You know, when I shift, I do it well, and, I say this because shift’s been happening!

Last week, the city that I live in decided that we needed to have updated roadside curbs, yes, you read this right, curbs.

Someone, somewhere, deemed our curbs a menace to society.

We were given notice that this would be forthcoming, but nothing too definite, so I just let the whole thing fly on past my memory banks.

Until, one morning, very early, while I was lying in bed drifting amongst the clouds in the castles of my dreams, I heard “Ding-Dong, Ding-Dong, Ringa-Dinga-Ding-Dong.”

I jumped into my finest bathrobe as I figured first thing in the early morning hours wasn’t a good time to frighten anyone who is ringing my doorbell.

Down the stairs I went and opened the door, and there he was, a knight in not-so-shining armour (okay, he had a hard-hat and matching reflective vest on) and he Mafia-spoke to me in a deep raspy voice saying, “Mammmm, are youuuuaah gonnaah mooovaah youraah car because werrraah a workin’ herrraah now andaah we gottaah jobaah to do”. I said, “Thanks for the warning, I’ll get my horse out of the stable and let the games begin.”   He just kind of stood there for a moment and then shook his head.

And, that is when this little adventure turned into a Medieval times theme. I started texting my son who lives in another city to have a bit of fun with this, and this is how our messages unfolded:

Me: They’re Here!

Him: Who?

Me: You know, the road rippers.

Him: You okay?

Me: So far, I’m staying in the castle so they can’t get me.

Him: Mom????

Me: Don’t worry Sweetheart, I will never surrender. I can hear them trying to gather up their thunder machines. They think I can’t hear or see them, but I can.

Him: Do you need me to help you with something?

Me: Not yet, stay hidden with your reinforcement clan, this could get messy.

Him: Mom, what’s going on????

Me: It’s okay now, they’ve retreated, and I’ve seen them eating pizza, but I know they’re planning to continue the attack later. They’ve left markings everywhere!

Him: Ummmm ….

Me: They made a moat now; I’ll get the hose and fill it with water so the gators can swim there.

Him: Whaaaaat????

Me: I’ll get your toy drone out that you left here and fly it over their troops to see where they’re going next.

Him: Nooooooo, the last time you tried to fly it you crashed it in the neighbour’s pool (sad face icon)

Me: Pffffttt, details …

Him: What’s going on over there? The whole office here is worried about you!

Me: Great, now they all think I’m crazy.

Him: Well, you know …

Me: Never mind, I’ve got a good escape plan now, they put a drawbridge over my moat so that I can leave the castle. You don’t mind that I wear your Harry Potter cloak that you left here?

Him: Mom, that’s my spare Lawyer’s robe, and it’s called a gown.

Me: Well that’ll do just fine – it’s a one size fits all right? I can fit at least a few of me into it!

Him: Mom, seriously, you’re making me crazier than you!

Me: Heh Heh

Him: Is your road being repaired?

Me: Yup, you da best!

Him: We had an office pool betting on what was going on hahaha I won!

Me: Let’s split the winnings at least!

Remember that every time you find humour in a difficult situation, you win.

Anyhow, all that aside, we are primed for some significant energetic shifts to come through over the next few weeks, so be okay with whatever comes your way. Now, by being okay, I simply mean to stay clear, focused, grounded and centered, and do not get caught up in absorbing what takes place around you, rather, observe with non-attachment.

Everyone is on a path of higher learning, whether they recognize this or not. Some of us will have to become very proficient in embodying unconscious behaviours before we can wake up and realize that we were staring in our own shift-show.

If you are feeling the energetic turmoil of others, remember to become aware of your breathing. When you consciously slow your breathing pattern, then you are no longer a vibrational match to the energetic chaos and turbulent noise that is around you.

Being in your energetic space and not merging into the energetic waves of others is critical for you to be aware of so that you can continue to hold the light of awareness and shine it upon the path of the unknown.

Practice the understanding of the non-permanence of life, and, remember that holding on is the opposite of freedom, and you are a free Being.

If you are curious, you learn. But when you are desperate, you discover. Sometimes life has to push you against the wall and separate you from all escape routes in order for you to be confronted with what you have to face.

Sometimes life will shake you up to wake you up, and how you choose to awaken will be up to you.

How Are You Choosing?

Well I don’t know about you, but I am most grateful that the past three months (and the past few weeks) are now in the past – that was quite the ride! We were all given an opportunity to objectively review our life experiences as well as reflect upon our most profound truths, life-purposes, and desires for Soul-growth and evolution.

The energies that continue to come through not only create some upheavals, but they also form a pattern of smoothing out, so that you can experience greater stability, clarity, and understanding.

Sometimes it may feel like not a lot is taking place on the surface. However, there is a lot of shifting that is taking place behind the scenes (like preparatory work). The Soul-wisdom that you are experiencing is part of your growth; pass along the pearls of wisdom that resonate with you as truth.

We’ve been receiving powerful energetic downloads that have hastened our shifts in awareness and consciousness. This has been unfolding on a personal and collective level, so know in your heart that you’re not alone in how you are feeling. Being able to see old things with new eyes and new things with old eyes is a gift.

Setbacks and obstacles are natural; they are part of the learning curves ~ the key is to keep on keepin’ on, picking yourself up and moving forward. It gets easier as you learn more and move forward in your journey.

You will begin to discern when to pick up your sword and when to play your harp. Only by truly understanding and questioning what you hold to be true can you break through any and all blocks in your path.

Connect with others that are awakening and discover your truth, regardless if it fits with your previous experiences or not.

Others may think you’re crazy, but keep on discovering, connecting the dots and letting go of what needs to fall away from your experiences so that you can continue to grow.

You are living awareness; it is time to make peace with the changes that are happening in your life, as well as what’s to come as you awaken. Now is the perfect time to pay attention to where you are placing your energy (your power) and if you are throwing it away rather than manifesting what you want and choose to experience.

Challenges are the proverbial sandpaper that smoothens out any rough edges, bringing you towards grace. Consider moving through the changes that are taking place with grace, as grace is most often experienced when staying grounded, present and calm when life around you is anything but that.

Ask yourself if you are living your life to its fullest potential or are you living in the shadows of your fears (what will other people think, say, do, etc.).

Remember, the keys to your wellbeing and freedom are through your inherent creative powers. Access these and find your keys to living your best life ever. Continue to release all social conditioning that has kept you believing that your life is supposed to be a certain way, and stay open to how you want to feel and live your life.

There’s a palpable sensation that we’re in some transformative times ~ keep your mind open to receiving new insights, awareness, and understandings. Question everything that you thought you knew …

Maybe now is the time to choose to awaken to your real potential and purpose. You are here by choice in the earth realm; awaken and remember who you are; so that you may support others in remembering.

Evoke your magnificence; choose wisely (all choices have consequences) and choose well.

“The world is half darkness, half Light. The actions of one person can tip the balance so that the world is in darkness or Light.” ~ The Zohar

We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.” ~ Galileo

“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” ~ Abraham Maslow

New Energy Paths Are Here

New energy paths are being presented now, and how you choose to experience your path, will be essential to your ongoing awakening journey of remembering who you really are, and what you came into this realm to do.

Whatever is taking place outside of you that is getting your attention, will be a reflection of what is taking place inside of you (energetically).

As an example, I was getting ready to go out the door this morning when I remembered that it was garbage day. I was running behind schedule, and I started to complain in my head (okay, under my breath and not so under my breath if you know what I mean). And, before I knew it, I was into a full-on rant about the garbage needing to go out, and how I am the only one with the mystical powers to know when this needs to happen, and, to get the job done.

I was mumbling (ranting), when one of the recycle bins fell over and bit my shin. That snapped me back into this reality (path) very quickly. Seeing my leg gashed open with all my blood, bones, guts and glory swooshing out of me got my attention (okay, other than the blood, I made that last part up, but it hurt just as if all the other stuff was swooshing out of me).

I then heard my guides lovingly tell me how gratitude would go much further in what I was doing. Gratitude as in “at least I have garbage to take to the curb” whereas there are many people in this realm that cannot take their garbage out, and perhaps don’t have anything to throw away.

This then guided me to understand that I had some inner garbage to get rid of, and by inner, I’m talking about my beliefs that someone(s) else “should” be taking the garbage out to the curb.

I learned a humbling lesson this morning ~ it is important to stay focused on the path that you choose to travel and not the one(s) that distract you.

The same principles apply to people that you meet, as they are either reflections of a repeated cycle, or guides towards a new beginning and fresh direction. Everything you experience, even the difficult things in life, are your teachers.

Being in the present moment will help you to notice the difference.

Within all Beings, consciousness, awareness and universal wisdoms are available. All we need to do is become consciously aware, and we are on our path of further awakening.

Choose wisely and observe the energy path that you are walking (and watch out for those biting recycle bins!).

“Any doubt, any sensation, that you comment about; anything you consider to be a problem, is only a manifestation of your belief. Thoughts have no power by themselves. A thought without belief is nothing at all, has no power; a thought with belief can start a war, or begin to heal a nation.” ~ Mooji

“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.” ~ Anthon St. Maarten

“So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we hold the key.” ~ The Eagles, Already Gone

It’s About Time

Most of you reading this posting will have noticed that your perception that time has accelerated at a pace that you’ve never experienced before is affecting your life and how you go about getting things done (if at all). Your awareness of this is indicative that you are awakening to another level of consciousness.

This awareness is bringing you a deeper understanding of the concepts of managed time and un-managed time.

Managed time doesn’t mean that you need to rush out get yourself a project-scheduler-get-shift-done-gadget, rather, it’s staying peacefully present and focused, as this focused attention is where consciousness rests.

When you are focused in the present moment, you will always have enough time to complete whatever you are choosing to do. Being focused is also known as presence and mindfulness (naturally holding space for yourself or another).

However, when you are experiencing un-managed time, well, that’s when you will have at least 20,000 different topics, thoughts, and activities happening simultaneously. This is when the proverbial “Hooooolllllyyyyyy shift” awareness comes in!

It is natural to fluctuate between the two perspectives of time; the more aware you become of what you are doing, and, what is taking place around you, the quicker you will become proficient at recognizing when you are functioning in managed or un-managed time.

As an example, when I am in un-managed time, I can blow my house up in a matter of less than 10minutes. Now, I don’t mean that I’ve blown the house to smithereens, but it could almost look like that.

The other day, I turned the kettle on to make myself a cup of tea, and while I was waiting for it to boil, I started to empty the dishwasher when the doorbell rang, and it was a delivery from Amazon, again (whoops, did I just write that last part out loud?). I started to open my package when the timer on the dryer beeped, so I put the half opened package in the laundry room and started getting the clothes out and folded when my phone rang. I answered the phone, and my husband wanted to know if he had accidentally dropped his wallet somewhere in the garage before he got in his car for work that morning.

Out I went to the garage but the battery wasn’t working in the opener so I had to come back into the house to find batteries which then brought me to finding a few living in the bottom of the pots and pans drawer (which of course meant taking all the pots and pans out and leaving them all over the floor because now I was in a hurry to get into the garage to see if my husband’s wallet was there, and, incidentally isn’t that where everyone keeps their spare batteries?).

After getting into the garage, and yes, his wallet was there, I called him back and then remembered that the recycling needed to be put out to the curb, so I started to do that when along came a distraught neighbor from up the street looking for her indoor cat that decided to bust out on its first outdoor adventure.

Needless to say, I was into full un-managed time, in other words, I did not have my shift together!

This all leads me to what this post is really about ~ we are now “in present time,” and this is the time to be present, awakening, aware, embracing your personal power, listening carefully to your inner voice (truth), after all, the great awakening is all in perfect timing!

When you are aware of managing your time, of being “in present time,” then you are awake, and, once you are awakened, you cannot go back to sleep.

So, consider the managed time to be conscious time and whatever falls outside of that, is un-managed unconscious time. The more you choose to be awake, the more time will be on your side.

Time is on your side now; you have the awareness to choose how you will respond if you will respond at all. Choosing to respond with kindness is always a good option, and of course, calling out what is invalid, or walking away, are also valid choices.

As you continue to awaken, you will recognize your gift of discernment, of knowing in your heart what is truth and what is not. Even if what you believed to be true yesterday is no longer true for you today, then be okay with releasing the old programming and paradigms, it’s time.

The present time is where your power lives ~ this is where the power to create is ignited.

Remember that the innermost essence of your Being is your Soul, and your Soul is the Spirit Of Unconditional Love.

“Once the Soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.” ~ John O’Donohue

“We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake.” ~ Pema Chödrön

“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.” ~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

Are You Ready For This?

If you’ve been feeling somewhat fatigued over the past few weeks, this is a good indicator that you’re experiencing an energy shift that is almost complete (for the time being). This shift feels like it’s a reintegration of having had our energetic bodies (emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and creative) rinsed, washed, spun and then mixed back into our physical forms ~ what a way to begin the year!

Often I’m asked about predictions; however, I like to think in terms of infinite potentials, probabilities, and possibilities that will lead you towards experiencing your unique outcomes being revealed just for you.

One thing that I can say with certainty is that there will be significant changes taking place this year, both individually and collectively.

I know in my heart that this year will be about new ways of experiencing freedom, and truth. The awakening journey is gaining momentum in ways that we’ve all been dreaming of, and yes, dreams do come true.

Being able to live your truth will be a mainstay this year, and continuing to connect the proverbial dots, keeping your eyes open for those universe synk-wynks, and discerning the path that is best suited for you, will be a must.

This year will be the year where you will find it easier to say, “No, this is no longer working for me, and this is what I’m going to do now.”

Your gifts of intuition ~ clairvoyance (clear inner seeing), clairaudience (clear inner hearing) and clairsentience (visceral inner feeling-knowing) will become significantly stronger this year, so if you’ve experienced an increase in any of these, be ready for more of it (and if your experience is that they haven’t been activated as of yet, well hold onto your underpants because they definitely will). And, be okay with your “rational” mind trying to negate any of these experiences, and trust in yourself and what you know to be truthful for you.

Many will reflect back on 2017 and their entire life, and be able to see with compassionate hearts the gifts that were presented to them along the way. Some of the gifts haven’t been opened yet, but they soon will be (and most of these gifts came through the experiences of deep letting go of any and all shifts that were no longer serving your highest good).

Any and all inner work that you’ve done in 2017 will bring you surprising and extraordinary results this year, so consider it to be a significant year of manifesting your truth, and your heart and Soul’s desires!

Remember that there is a fundamental “mission” occurring that is continuing to peel away any layers so that what was once hidden is now being revealed.

We are here in the earth realm to play roles for one another; roles of pain and roles of passion, roles of reminiscing and roles of regrets, and, most of all, we are here to play roles of activating a renewal to the awareness that we are already awakened, we are remembering how we got there.

Let your intuition, courage, and inner strength, guide you on your path of self-discovery and living your best life ever. Be more free and alive this year than any other year!

Distance yourself from who and what no longer uplifts you emotionally, physically, intellectually, spiritually, and energetically, as this is a gift of honouring your truth that you can give to yourself.

All Beings desire freedom, peace, happiness, and creative expression. When you choose your truth, the whole universe supports you. This year is your year; the life you’ve been waiting for is now.

Share your knowledge, experiences, and wisdom with others, and let the mantra “out with the old and in with the true” be your daily focus!

“If the you of five years ago doesn’t consider the you of today a heretic, you are not growing spiritually.” ~ Thomas Merton

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.” ~ Swami Vivekananda

“If you can recognize illusion as illusion, it dissolves. The recognition of illusion is also its ending. Its survival depends on your mistaking it for reality.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

Eye Saw the Signs

In my previous blog post – http://swansource.ca/eye-see/, I described how and why we are being given signs along our journeys. These little (and sometimes not so little) signposts are physical manifestations and validations of what is needed to be seen. And, it’s okay if you miss seeing your signs (I often times actually tried to) so that I could “be like everyone else.”

But the universe is infinite in its patience, and, just like driving and missing your exit, life will bring you to another opportunity to notice the signs and redirect yourself back onto your path.

So, on to my initial life’s signs …

In the early 1960’s, I would wake up and see a Being sitting on the end of my upper bunk bed. It would just sit there with what looked like its feet dangling over the edge of my bed, and its head turned looking at me. This Being had a gentle glow around it, and I always felt happy and peaceful that it was there. I used to Love it whenever it would wake me up, and one time my little sister who slept in the bunk bed below me had the same experience. At that point, I knew in my heart “Yes, there is an Elf from Santa’s workshop that checks in on me!” (okay, so I more or less misread the sign on that one, but I was all of 4 years old).

In the mid-60’s I was going through the process of having my first communion. I had no idea what the whole shin-dig was about, but, I do remember thinking that I might like to become a nun. The nuns that I knew got to wear those lovely flowing-type outfits with the matching shoes and head-gear (handy for bad hair days).

My family was doing the “proper Catholic celebration” at our home with all the friends, relatives, and relatives of relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents, neighbours, you name it).   There was also a lot of presents (crosses, necklaces, and bible-like things, but no toys, sigh…) and of course a big cake with little silver balls all over it – the most import of all.

At that same time, my grandmother’s friend, Mrs. Furry (yes, that was her real name) had been hospitalized, as she was very sick, yet I remember I kept seeing her standing at the front door of our tiny house. I would look at Mrs. Furry and wonder “why doesn’t she just come in, we’re going to get to eat that fancy cake soon.”

Right about the time that I’m seeing Mrs. Furry at our front door, my grandmother had gone into my parent’s bedroom to call the hospital and see how her friend was doing. Shortly afterward my grandmother came out of the bedroom and was crying. She was so sad, and I remember saying to her “Grandma, don’t cry because Mrs. Furry’s not at the hospital, she came to the house to be here with us, she’s all better now, and she’s waiting at the front door.”

Well, needless to say, what I was seeing and saying wasn’t matching up to what my lovely grandmother had been told on the telephone and what she was feeling, and things kind-of got weird after that.

It turned out that Mrs. Furry had transitioned that morning, and now I was getting into trouble for “telling stories that weren’t true.” Lucky for me, it was my first communion day, so I somehow escaped being punished (for telling the truth of all things!), and I finally did get to eat my cake.

When I was in both elementary and secondary school, I would know when certain teachers were going to be absent, if the fire alarm was going to go off, and whether we were going to be given a surprise spot-test on a particular subject (too bad I didn’t pay attention to the spot-test inner “knowings” as I may have done better on those, but I digress). I would tell my friends on our way to school “oh Mrs. Walker won’t be there today”, or “be ready for a surprise math quiz this morning”, or “don’t worry too much about the surprise math quiz because the fire alarm is going to go off.”

Seeing that it was the 1960’s and into the early 1970’s, having this kind of “gift of knowing” wasn’t necessarily viewed as a gift, let alone appropriate, and definitely not great for buying into the illusion of fitting in with the crowd!

I think it was around that time that I started to realize that not everyone was receiving “the knowings” or tuning into the same things that I was. This baffled me for the longest time, as I thought other people were just playing some kind of game with me, and pretending that they couldn’t see, feel or hear what I was.

I decided that there was something terribly flawed and wrong with me as no one else ever spoke about these experiences, so I surrendered to becoming quiet about “the knowings.” I mean, after all, it was getting beyond challenging to articulate what I was experiencing, let alone that no one seemed to believe me (until after the fact), so it was beginning to be easier to say little or nothing at all.

This surrendering began to take on a life form of its own, so much so, that one day while out riding my bike, my stomach started doing queasy-flips (and those kinds of “flips” were serious warning signs that something bad or frightening was going to happen), but I always knew that in the end, I would be okay as long as I paid close attention to the signs. As I was riding my bike past some tall bushes, I clearly heard the words “hide now,” so I did ~ I ditched my bike and merged myself into those big tall scratchy bushes and stood there barely breathing let alone moving.

I no sooner hid into those bushes when a station wagon with a creepy looking man driving it came slowly down the street; I could see that he was looking for someone, and I viscerally felt that the someone, was me.

I stayed morphed into those bushes for what seemed like forever until I could hear my Dad calling my name to come home for dinner-time. When I got home, my Mom asked me why I was so dirty, and I remember telling her that I fell off my bike. At that same moment, my great-grandfather who had already transitioned was standing in our kitchen next to the table with a big happy smile on his face; it was him who gave me the message to hide.

I never did tell my parents what happened that day; I kept it to myself. Between the social conditioning that was in play at the time and my family dynamics, it was simpler not to say anything.   And, as my Aunt Marguerite-Louise who couldn’t speak any English would say, “Don’ttt pannikk yourrrrself!!!”

As my life continued, there would always be signposts along the way that would nudge me in the direction that was needed. Sometimes those nudges were subtle and other times not so much.

It wasn’t until I was in my late 20’s and early 30’s that I started to understand that there was something called a highly developed sense of intuition.

Some of the biggest lessons that I learned was that it’s okay that others didn’t understand me or what I was experiencing, I came into the earth realm for a purpose of being “a helper” (service-to-others), and I wasn’t nearly as alone in what I saw, felt and heard as I thought I was.

My early experiences led me to understand that the evolution of the Soul is always in progress, and shifts in perspectives are inevitable (yes, on all levels), and, there is no such thing as normal but there is very much a thing called natural.

Trust your intuition as it’s there for a reason; everything is always working itself out (especially when you think it couldn’t possibly be).

When I was little, I didn’t consider my early life events as “signs,” but now I smile and when I reflect back on my journey as I understand that the signs were always pointing me to my path of being me, and eventually sharing “the knowings” along the way.

Remember that the universe is always in communication with us ~ giving us little messages, creating coincidences and kismets, dharma and destiny, and reminding us to stop, receive and observe our signs!

“I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign; life can be demanding without understanding.” – Ace of Base

“You, yourself, are the eternal energy which appears as this universe. You didn’t come into this world; you came out of it. Like a wave from the ocean.” – Alan Watts

“Today, look for a small sign, a small miracle, a small thing of beauty that will connect you to the source of all beauty and miracles.” – The After Life of Billy Fingers

Eye See

I am a strong believer in following the guidance that comes through in signs and symbolisms in both waking and dreamscape states, and it’s how I’ve learned to navigate my journey. If you’re not paying attention to what is going on inside you and around you, you will never know which direction you’re headed in.

Being undecided in your path is a natural experience, especially when you begin to reflect upon your life; where you’ve been, what you’ve done, what you haven’t done, how well you loved yourself and others, what you learned and didn’t learn, and most of all, how you shifted your awareness and consciousness to a higher level of compassion and grace.

As you continue to awaken, be okay with whatever is shown for you. If there is an apology or an applause that is required from you, then do so. You can always send your apology and applause with gratitude for the lesson learned. If it is not possible to physically do so, then it is also perfect to energetically send your thoughts, as the recipient(s) will receive it.

If you make the conscious choice to see with the eyes of truth, clarity, and Love, then you will see others for who they are ~ radiant Souls having an experience.

Once you consciously engage in awareness and shifting your consciousness, you will experience near instant manifestations of what you are wanting. This happens because you are paying attention to the signs in your path!

When you are awake, you cannot go back to sleep, and, your life will never be the same (you cannot stay in dreamscape indefinitely). There are perks to being awake, and you can have a lot of fun with it, and like all experiences in the earth realm (which a realm of duality), there can also be some challenges. Let the challenges be signs as well, signs that you are experiencing growth, as nothing grows without change.

Although there are many things in this earth-realm-world that you may find very offensive, your best choice for making any positive change(s) is to quietly say to yourself “How can I serve?” or “How can I help.” You will be shown a sign in some way shape or form that will guide you in your next step(s).

By this point, you will have moved beyond the obvious signs of the digital clock always being 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, and 11:11 and so on, as this will now be an everyday occurrence. Also, you will have gotten used to the fact that you think of someone and they call you within the day, or you walk right into them.

Some people will call these synchronicities, and truthfully they are signs of that you are on your path and living your life to its fullest potential, and, there will be more signs coming!

Your conscious acts and words are the magic that lifts you into another frequency that is beyond the veil of illusion. There is a significant energetic “push” that is coming through that is assisting you in becoming your most authentic self. How this push comes about will be unique for everyone, but trust me on this, you will know it!

This push is for your Soul-growth and will present signs for you to consciously choose to become more than you ever thought you could ~ your calling of being of service to others is now activated.

There is purposefulness, freedom, a strong sense of accomplishment and contentment from self-educating and self-empowering yourself through awareness of knowledge, transcending into an experience, and integrating it through to wisdom. People and material things will come and go, and you may experience feeling disheartened and disillusioned.

Self-confidence, self-esteem, self-care, Self-Love, clarity, living a life of integrity and authenticity, staying present in the here and now, shining qualities of grace, and tranquility, understanding, and compassion, and of course Love, are just some of the gifts for a conscious and awakened life well-lived.

It seems to me (and this is just my opinion) that we came into physical form into the earth realm to experience something that is not available to us in non-physical. Life in the earth-realm frequency is a school for the evolution of consciousness, and everything is essentially Soul-lessons for Soul-growth. The “reward” for learning and integrating Soul-Lessons is the embodiment and expression of unconditional Love.

In my next blog post, I will share with you the signs that have been given to me along my journey. I now understand how these signs were unique for me, just as yours have been and will continue to be for you.

Keep your I’s, heart and mind open, and observe the signs …

“Everything that happened, you never saw it coming. The greatest things in your life, you did not expect, they simply unfolded. As you begin to recognize and accept this, you relax and see that your life is unfolding inside a greater harmony.” – Mooji

“May all that is unforgiven in you be released. May your fears yield their deepest tranquilities. May all that is unlived in you, blossom into a future, graced with Love.” – John O’Donohue

“Many people who are going through the early stages of the awakening process are no longer certain what their outer purpose is. What drives the world no longer drives them. Seeing the madness of our civilization so clearly, they feel somewhat alienated from the culture around them. Some feel that they inhabit a no-man’s-land between two worlds. They are no longer run by the ego, yet the arising awareness has not yet become fully integrated into their lives. Inner and outer purpose have not merged.” – Eckart Tolle

It’s Hammer Time

Last week I went looking for a nail to hang a picture, which led me on a bit of a wild goose chase. I checked the junk drawers in the kitchen (that I had already de-shifted) and there were two measuring tapes, but no nail. So, I checked the junk drawers in the laundry room (that had also been de-shifted), and there were three hammers, but no nail for a picture. Then, the only other place where nails could be found was the fruit cellar.

I know, you’re probably wondering how or why I would ever find a picture-hanging nail in my fruit cellar, and I agree because I also wondered the same thing. Anyhow, when I got into the fruit cellar (that by the way has no fruit), I found 4 more hammers, 23 pliers, 47 various screwdrivers, fireworks, a cordless phone with no base (no wonder I don’t hear the phone ringing), a scary looking fish tackle hooky thing that might be useful for catching whales, at least a few million different screws and tie-wraps, and, of course, no nail to hang a picture.

Well, just when I figured I had my shift together, I lost it.

Somehow, my fruit cellar had become the fertile breeding grounds where Home Depot mated with Canadian Tire and spawned Rona. This is probably the best visual for what I was dealing with, so yes, it was an epic shift storm that had been brewing for over a decade that needed my attention.

I vowed to myself that the shift in there had to go, and I asked the universe to get on my request to assist in making this happen sooner than later. Then, I took a deep breath, got myself calm and grounded, and walked back upstairs to hear my husband on his cell phone finishing a conversation that involved him going away for a last minute golf trip.

Can you say hello heaven?!?!?!

I did my very best to not burst into a spontaneous tap-dancing unicorn with rainbows coming out its bum and calmly said, “Oh, you’re going to have such a fun time away.”

The next day after I teary-eyed (ok not) waved goodbye to my golfing husband, I called the come-and-get-my-shift-outta-here-people and arranged a pick up for the following afternoon.

That is when my shift-show started getting real.

I emptied out the entire contents of the fruit cellar except for the spare fridge and freezer (it’s okay to have two of those), and the whole time I could hear MC Hammer singing in my husband’s voice “Can’t touch this” and “My-my-my-my” and “Oh-oh oh oh oh-oh-oh”. It was like the song was on replay in my head, and it wasn’t too long, and I was starting to sing it out loud – I was totally into the tune, and I was ad-libbing by adding in lots of random “Wow-Wow-Wow and Wow.”

About that time my son came downstairs and said “Mom, are you in there? Mom, are you okay? Mom, what happened? Mom? Mom? Mom?”

I climbed out of the trenches of the fruit cellar, covered in layers of spider webs, stubs of electrical tape, my glasses half falling off my face and probably looking fairly delirious by this point and I said, “It’s hammer time.” He looked a little worried and said, “You’re doing it again aren’t you.”

Well, yes, I was doing it again, and once I sorted through everything (for days, okay about six hours) and made piles of keep it and mostly toss it, of which there still wasn’t a picture hanging nail to be found, it was time to bring the piles of shift up to the garage. And, that is where I discovered the nesting quarters of Rona’s twin, Wal-Mart.

A fine selection of mouse-eaten old pool toys, golfing umbrellas, baseball gloves, burnt out fluorescent lights, more tie-wraps, skateboards, two brooms with no bristles, my once upon a time favorite winter hat, a broken three-legged chair (that was a good one to hang onto), empty planters sprouting bird seed remnants, four more hammers (I know, sigh…), the old vacuum, and, a sledgehammer from a garage sale that still had the $10.00 price tag on it. Needless to say, I had to call the come-and-get-my-shift-outta-here-people and confess that the 15 or so garbage bags that I thought I was going to have ready for them, had grown into a full-fledged mini mountain of shift.

What an epic day this turned out to be, and, I realized that we live in a world of abundance that is beyond our awareness!!

True abundance is the overflowing treasure of Divine energy that is all around us at all times. Having what you need when you need it is true abundance (ahem, as in a nail to hang a picture).

According to the Universal Law of Abundance, we must be willing to become aware of where we focus our attention and what we believe to be true. Abundance has no limits and can best be understood by looking at the continual growth and unlimited resources that are always present and available.

When our living spaces, be it physical, emotional, intellectual or spiritual are cluttered with shift, then we cannot possibly be open to accessing the abundance, freedom and creative energies that are available for us. If you do not take the time to consciously release ALL shift that is not serving you, then the universe will step in and create an awareness that you’ve got some shift to do.

After expressing my gratitude to the gentlemen that arrived with their huge truck to happily remove my shift had driven off into the sunset, I walked back along the walkway towards my front door. As I was placing my hand on the door handle to open it, I noticed a scuffed plastic container that had fallen out of one of the bags that was carried up from the fruit cellar to the garage. The label was mostly torn off, and I was almost going to throw it out, but I decided to shake it and then open it. When I opened it, inside were brand new golden coloured nails that were perfect for hanging my picture.

May your awareness of abundance always be on your doorstep!

“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.” – Wayne Dyer

“Miracles are not the exception to the rule. They are the natural true order of things.” – Bashar

“Abundance is imagination realized. Scarcity is amnesia about imagination.” – Jon Rappoport

All Aboard!!

Well, I’ve been procrastinating about sharing this dreamscape vision that I had exactly six months ago, so much so, that I think I may receive the award for procrastinating about procrastinating. Sigh…

When I initially I had this dreamscape vision, I woke up and wrote it down as I usually do, but this one was just so vivid that it made me think about it for quite some time. Christmas came and went, and here we are almost into summer, and I woke up this morning with the dreamscape vision again! I even checked my dream journal, and sure enough, it was a replay, every moment of it, so here goes.

We are in a different world now, and many beautiful Beings are recognizing this. Our energies, worldviews, and understandings have shifted. What was at one time believed to be truths that we were socially conditioned to believe, is now being revealed for what it is.

This powerful shift in awareness is assisting us in creating the world that we chose to come forth and experience, akin to bringing heaven to earth. And, honestly, heaven is a state of be-ing, not a location. When we live our lives authentically and from our heart centers, soul-passion, creativity, empathy, compassion, and service to others, joy and Love become our destinations, as life is simply the journey.

So, onto my dreamscape visions that were so powerful it left me viscerally aware that it was time to share and release procrastinating (and I must admit that I have been prodded from my guides repeatedly over the past six months because if I see another train or a flyer for taking the train, well, I’m digressing).

There was a beautiful train station that looked like the one in the Polar Express movie, and the fascinating part was that as more and more people started to come into the station to wait for the train, the platform would keep on expanding so that everyone would be comfortably accommodated. The people that came had one little carry-on bag with them and they were Soul-happy to be there. They all shared that they had felt changes were happening in their lives and that they were ready for new beginnings, new ways of living their lives, and willing to take the journey of harmony, authenticity, and peacefulness.

Although there had been many delays with the train arriving at the station, let alone leaving, it was for a higher purpose ~ providing more opportunities so that others would awaken, move through the veils of illusions and come to the station.

If you feel that there have been any delays happening in your personal life, this may have been a part of what was taking place for you. Also, if you have been experiencing feeling that you are in another world at times, and have little in common with those that you used to, well, you too are most likely on the train. Personally, I’ve observed quite a few people that seem to be very far away, even though they are standing right in front of me (I know this sounds a bit unusual, but it’s as if their energy field is drifting away and beginning to fade).

Anyhow, once on board the train, (that was an epically beautiful train, with plush seating, twinkling crystal chandeliers for lighting, soft muted colours that were from another world (I’ve never seen these colours before), smiling and content attendants helping people to get settled in), there was a powerful presence of authenticity, grace and tranquility that was void of any doubts or distractions or confusion.

Everyone was prepared to be on board, and a collective and grateful sigh of relief was unmistakable. The train was finally beginning to move, slowly, as there were still the occasional last minute passengers that were arriving, being welcomed and ready to step on board and experience their true callings.

The carry on bags were now being opened and inside of them were what I’d call orbs filled with magical lights and sounds, and these orbs were people’s gifts that they were finally activating. These gifts are everyone’s natural calling that they feel in their heart, as they initially brought these gifts into the earth realm when they came here.

As Beings of energy, the profound awareness that we’ve always carried within us, are the creative tools that we need to heal ourselves and subsequently others (as we heal, others around us naturally heal). This awareness is our direct line of communication with our Soul. When our intentions, thoughts, words and behaviours are in alignment with our truth (Soul’s vision), we know this instantaneously by the way we feel, which is typically feelings of harmony, gratitude, personal power, joy, Grace, compassion, and Love.

It was an exciting time on board the train! People recognized their gifts of healing, Soul-truths, creative expressions, abundance, and most of all, realized that they are awakened, as their past was simply the experience of remembering how it all happened.

Our Souls are always whispering truths, and it is these truths that we are now collectively and individually listening to.

Stay present in your authenticity, as it is your life’s journeys, experiences, insights, and understandings that change you to becoming a way-shower for others.

Let’s get seats beside each other on the train!!

Look For The Soul

A few weeks ago, I kept hearing the words “Look for the Soul, ” and I immediately felt the gentle, loving presence of my guides. Now, since hearing those words, I have been repeating them to myself over and over again, especially whenever I find myself with another person who does not know that they have a Soul that is present within them, let alone that they are a Soul.

Now, you may be wondering how on earth can I know that another person has forgotten who they really are. Well, I find it evident in their behaviour ~ the vocabulary they use, the distant far away look in their eyes, the impression of plodding through life as if it’s an epic chore, and, the overall lack of vitality in their energy field (for me, it’s palpable, but that is just part of how I interpret the presence of energy and the awareness of the presence of the Soul).

When I look for the Soul, I see truth, compassion, freedom, understanding and the glimmering reflection of Love.

When other people are acting out their scripts and roles for us, it is easy to get caught up in the performance and become engaged. But, when you look beyond the surface (words, tonality, expressions, beliefs, actions, and behaviours {which is almost always social conditioning and not who the person authentically is}), you will see the Soul of another.

Collectively, we are all being “triggered” to remember who we are, a Soul (an extension of Source Energy) in physical form, and in that remembering, we have the power of choice.

We can choose to continue with the conditioned programming that was given to us by others who were also conditioned and programmed, or we can choose to set out on new pathways with new awareness and the gift of awakening. We are unlimited and filled with infinite potential and possibilities, and the pathways of our journeys are being cleared of the old ways of experiencing life.

Be all that you fully and possibly can be, and consider being of service to others through your journey and life experiences by recognizing the magnificence of who you truly are. Pain and suffering are part of the human experience. I have been shown that pain and suffering are the resistance to the natural self, so the acceptance of the “gift of your pain and suffering” is the pathway to Soul-growth, awareness, and awakening.

If you are presently experiencing any pain or suffering, ask yourself “what am I supposed to learn through this?”, “what else is there for me to discover,” “how can I grow and change by releasing this experience with gratitude?” It is easy to get stuck in the experience of pain and suffering, however, moving through it is where the Soul-goodness comes in!

When you release any of your “pain” (beliefs about how an experience “should” be or how another person “should” respond or behave), you will feel your Soul expand and experience freedom.

You are being called upon to look for the Soul in yourself and others in this lifetime experience.

Many people are feeling stuck in their jobs, towns, relationships and earth-families, and no matter how hard they try to change things, the universe simply rebounds them back into place again. Accept that there is a compelling reason that you are being kept in a holding position, as there is more to learn (an opportunity to release old “stuff”, awaken and see the Soul).

When the lesson is complete only then will you be released to move forward in your journey with greater compassion, wisdom, and understanding. Remember that you always belong where you are needed.

Get out of the way and become the way; release any arguments that your life is supposed to be different than it is (at this red-hot moment), as you are playing a role in the awakening and transformation of yourself and others. It is through this transformational process that you will be able to look for and see the Soul.

We are much more than the proverbial “ghosts in the machine” ~ we are Beings filled with truth, inner knowing, creative expressions, Love and of course, a radiant Soul. There is Soul-magic always available inside of you every moment. If you are unaware of your thoughts, you will inherit the thoughts from all around you (that are not yours).

We are in fascinating times, charge your thoughts with presence, Love, and gratitude and let your Soul-light shine.

Consider moving through your journey at the speed of the Universe, and trusting in your inner passion and signs along the way that will stir your heart in a way that will assist you to awaken. If you choose to do this, you will experience Soul-connections, the desire to share your Soul-wisdoms, and the gift of glimmering Soul-reflections.

We are the awakening when we recognize that Love and seeing the Soul are more important than anything. There is a powerful resonating truth to be embodied when one “answers the call,” looks for the Soul, and sees the reflection of the essence of Love.

As your awareness and awakening state increases, it is important that you maintain your balance, presence, and power – no one can make you do anything that you do not choose to do.

Stay mindful of being provoked into a reaction by the “role-player-actors” in your life. Rather than reacting (because you would be giving your power away), look for the Soul, and respond from a state of conscious awareness. Reacting is a survival mechanism (that disempowers you), whereas responding is a choice (that empowers you), which brings you freedom.

In this earth realm where most Beings are wearing their actor’s masks, it is an honour and privilege to look for the Soul …

“Once you stop clinging and let things be, you’ll be free. You’ll transform everything, and you’ll be at peace wherever you are.” – Bodhidharma

“In my experience, everyone will say they want to discover the Truth, right up until they realize that the Truth will rob them of their deepest held ideas, beliefs, hopes, and dreams. The freedom of enlightenment means much more than the experience of love and peace. It means discovering a Truth that will turn your view of self and life upside-down. For one who is truly ready, this will be unimaginably liberating. But for one who is still clinging in any way, this will be extremely challenging indeed. How does one know if they are ready? One is ready when they are willing to be absolutely consumed, when they are willing to be fuel for a fire without end.” – Adyashanti

“The living Soul of man, once conscious of its power, cannot be quelled.” – Horace Mann
