How To Live In The Moment In 6 Easy Ways – via Operation Meditation – 11-3-15

Live in the Moment

http://in5d.com/how-to-live-in-the-moment/

*

Are you held down by the past or concerned about the future? Would you like to learn ways to let go so you can be happy and care-free? Living for the moment involves being an active participant in your life. It means that you’re focused on whatever is happening right this moment. Why is this important?

What’s in the past is in the past. There’s nothing you can do to change it. You can coulda, shoulda, woulda all day long, but it still doesn’t alter the outcome or change where you are now. Learn what you need to from past events and then let them go.

And, tomorrow isn’t here yet, so why worry about it? Worrying or obsessing won’t prevent things from happening. Besides, most worries never come to pass anyway.

Staying in the present is important because it’s the only part of time that you have any control over. So, how do you keep yourself in the present, when your mind wants to stay on memory lane or fast-forward to tomorrow?

Here are 6 simple strategies:

1. Be child-like. Have you ever tried to talk to a child while they’re playing their favorite video game, but can’t seem to draw their attention away from it? It’s not necessarily that they’re ignoring you, although that certainly happens from time to time. Sometimes, they’re just so focused, so caught up in the present, that they truly don’t realize you’re calling for them.

Kids are the best at staying in the here and now. They don’t obsess about something that happened yesterday or fret over what may happen tomorrow. They keep their focus on whatever is captivating their attention at the moment.

2. Meditate. The whole premise behind meditation is to be present in each minute as it happens. When you channel all of your attention on your breathing, you can think of nothing else. Not the past. Not the future. Just the moment at hand.

Some people give up on meditation because they have difficulty keeping their mind from wandering, but this is natural until you get the hang of it. With enough practice, you’ll be able to tune out all distractions and be able to fully engage your focus.

3. Live like no one’s watching. Ever not do something because you fear someone will see you and think that you’re silly or stupid? The very thought that you’re being judged from others can keep you from living in the moment.

4. Let go of what others think. Who cares if they agree or disagree with you or think you’re a freak? Some of the greatest innovators are people that weren’t concerned with society’s labels and stayed true to themselves. Look at Einstein.

5. If you want to dance, dance. If you want to sing, sing. Do what makes you feel happy. It’s not important what others think. It’s only important what you think.

6. Take a social media break. It’s hard to stay focused on the here and now when your phone is dinging alerting you to a text message or your computer is bleeping because someone instant messaged you. Sometimes you have to unplug from social media to fully participate in your life.

Just because someone sends you something, doesn’t mean you have to respond immediately. If you’re always waiting for a message or stopping what you’re doing because a friend sent you a funny joke, you’re not fully engaged in your life. You’re not living.

Start living each minute like it’s your last. It is, because you’ll never get that minute back. So, make it worth it.

ANDREA – 10 Warning Signs the Universe sends when you are on the Wrong Path – 11-1-15

cdd00f8c1761a837289a6ce595a5071fANDREA   –   10 Warning Signs the Universe sends when you are on the Wrong Path   –   11-1-15http://www.thespiritscience.net

Many people believe that things “just happen” to them, but as we connect more closely to our intuition we are shown that everything that happens to us is of our own creation.

We may not be fully aware of what we are creating moment to moment, but fortunately the universe provides us with many signs to let us know when we are on the right path, and (more importantly) when we are on the wrong path.  This article will focus on the warning signs from the universe.

https://reikiwithfriends.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/10-warning-signs-the-universe-sends-when-youre-on-the-wrong-path/

In general, warning signs from the universe occur in the form of unwanted circumstances and events.

These signs are an indication that your energy is headed towards (or currently stuck in) a low vibrational frequency.  Your thoughts, feelings and actions are focused negatively, and this is creating unwanted circumstances.

Conversely, when your thoughts, feelings and actions are moving at a high vibrational frequency, life will line up perfectly.  You will have excellent timing and good luck all day long. This is why it’s so important to raise your vibration by consciously choosing positive thoughts.

Although we have the ability to resonate at a high vibrational frequency, it is challenging for us to stay elevated all of the time.

This is because our souls are stuck here on Earth in a physical dimension that is much denser and slower than the higher, ethereal dimensions.  The simple makeup of our planet and bodies is composed of much lower vibrational energy than that of our souls.

As a result, we will likely bump up against unwanted circumstances from time to time, but that’s ok.  As long as we heed these warning signs (without allowing our egos to fixate on them!) we can get back on track quickly.

As you move through your day, it’s a good idea to take note of the warning signs from the universe.  Here are a few examples of signs to be mindful of:

Warning Signs From the Universe

  1. Stubbing your toe
  2. Getting stuck in trafficScreen Shot 2015-10-30 at 7.52.28 PM
  3. Receiving dirty looks or snide remarks from others
  4. Getting injured
  5. Unexpected expenses or bills in the mail
  6. Uneasy gut feelings
  7. Arguments with your loved ones
  8. Getting sick
  9. Headaches
  10. Losing or breaking your possessions
  11. Unpleasant odors, sounds or tastes

Each of these signs is an indication that you need to center yourself and adjust your frequency.  When you encounter one of these warning signs, please stop! Do not keep working on that task, or having that conversation, or obsessing over that thought that you were just having because it is not taking you where you want to be.

Instead, take a deep breath, step away from the situation, or even take a minute to meditate if you are able to. If you catch these warning signs quickly and respond immediately, the simple act of centering yourself will stop the negative momentum.

As a final note, please try not to obsess over a warning sign.  Talking about it, thinking about it and replaying it your mind is a surefire way to lower your vibrational frequency.  Take it for what it is, a simple “stop sign,” and move on from it.  Please take care of your vibration; only give attention to the thoughts, feelings and actions that resonate with your soul’s natural frequency.

Thanks for reading,

Andrea

Wes Annac – Love: Our New Way of Life – 1028015

Credit: pinterest.com

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

http://wesannac.com/2015/10/28/love-our-new-way-of-life/

No matter our religion, culture, skin color or anything else we allow to divide us, love can bring us together. We’re capable of unity, but it requires us to embrace love, compassion and mutual respect. It’s easier said than done, but it’s not impossible.

Instead of letting our differences divide us, let’s learn to love each other for the things we have in common. Even if we have to step outside of our comfort zone to humor someone about their culture or beliefs, we don’t have to agree with them to respect them. We’re supposed to have different beliefs, because it’s what makes us unique. We can celebrate it as an essential aspect of the oneness we all share, but only when people are willing to see past their prejudice and find common ground.

Love, Compassion and Unity

Credit: pinterest.com

Love, compassion and unity are the answers to the world’s problems. Compassion and unity are by-products of love, and when we have love, we have them (and plenty more qualities) in abundance. More importantly, we’re willing to bring them to the surface. This not only allows us to creatively flow, but to uplift others in the process. What more could we want?

We can have all of this and more if we open up to love, and in my opinion, the world as a whole will have to open up to it before we can make a significant change. It would be great if even half the world loved and respected each other, but the other half would continue to disagree and fight. It wouldn’t be enough, and this makes our mission all the more important.

Religion Doesn’t Have to Divide Us

Religion divides us more than anything else, but there’s nothing wrong with sticking with a certain religion as long as you have love. If it helps you understand the great mystery of life while being a good person, then there’s nothing wrong with it. It becomes destructive when we fight over it, and we have to learn to respect each other’s unique views if we want to come together.

Credit: religioustolerance.org

Just because we hear someone out doesn’t mean we embrace their beliefs or their way of life, and even if we disagree with them, we can accept and respect them anyway. It’s simple, but it seems impossible for the world right now. We actually hold ourselves back by assuming it’s impossible, however, and the only reason it hasn’t happened is because enough people haven’t made it happen.

Live From the Heart

This is where we come in, and we have to live from the heart if we want to do this job correctly. Feel free to disagree, and you might see life and spiritual evolution in a totally different way. But heart-centeredness makes all the difference for me, and it not only enhances creativity, but frees me to give as much love to the world as I want.

I couldn’t write without love. I’ve tried before, and it never goes well. In fact, when I struggle to write, it’s usually because I’m not writing from the heart. I’m writing from a place of obligation, and it depletes my inspiration until I remember that love is the key – not just to creativity, but everything.

Credit: toastsa.com

Love inspires us to live with purpose and achieve great things. It encourages us to greet people with a smile instead of a snarl, and it helps us when we don’t think we can keep on. We only need to bring it up from within for it to improve our life and the lives of everyone we come in contact with, and the day the world can do this will be the day we free ourselves.

Our New Way of Life

Let’s make love our new way of life, and let’s keep in mind that it’s one of few ways into a higher consciousness. Not only that – it can inspire the unity that the world needs. We’ll no longer limit ourselves when we awaken to love, and with an open heart, we’ll live uniquely and encourage others to liberate themselves.

We’ll no longer reject people who think differently, and they too will eventually accept us for who we are. Everyone will be welcomed in a world driven by love, because we’ll know we’re one and we’ll no longer want to fight. We’ll bring an end to the barbaric violence in favor of peace and understanding, and thanks to love and true spiritual awareness, we’ll finally move forward as a species.

A Voice and a Lesson   –  by Living Life In Between  –   10-26-15

https://livinglifeinbetween.wordpress.com/2015/10/26/a-voice-and-a-lesson/

*

This has been an interesting day. It has really been pretty boring and mundane all in all…….except that I have had communication from my Team or someone from my Team most of the day. Along with this communication has come learning and information that was unexpected.

*

Lesson: Management of Thought

The day seems to have been an entire lesson on the workings of the human mind, or at least my human mind anyway.

It all began when a little voice interrupted my doubtful or negative thoughts. I recall the exact moment when I first recognized I was being spoken to. I had considered just selling all of my sewing kits and then throwing in the towel. “It’s too much work” was the last thing I thought.

The voice said, “Follow it through. Remember your intention (memory triggered) and go there. Persistence. Be the moment”.

Silence followed as I absorbed what I was told and recalled the image in my mind from the exact moment when I had the idea to start my business. This “image” was important. I needed to continually refer to that memory and then let it be the last thing I think about, tossing out all doubts and disappointments.

There was more. I was told to push past the pitfalls. Nothing is accomplished without a little elbow grease. Greatness is achieved not by those who know all but by those who seek to know what they do not.

*
That which was once accepted and expected in 3D is no more. So it is that your totality is in chaos – as is true for earth and the Universes as New Earth ‘comes alive’. All earth entities are now in chaos so there is no need to wait or slow down for those you love. Their path is different from yours and so is their chaos.
*
The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her weekly, channeled blog forwww.LifeTapestryCreations.com “Where Are My Rewards?”
Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.
*
Dear Ones,
Many of you consider yourselves to be above petty inconveniences such as paying bills or interacting with those you do not like or cannot relate to. Not that you believe you are better than others, but that you feel you no longer need to be active in such 3D actions. That you should be floating through the heavens or greeting your new life.

*

While such is true to a certain extent – you are creating that which makes you most comfortable in your New Earth – you are part of that New Earth. You will not skip from 3D to floating through the heavens – as you phrase it – until you transition from earth in this lifetime. So it is you are alert to earth needs because you are of earth.
*
Perhaps that thought frightens you for you believe that the unpleasant aspects of your earth life would disappear as you created new you in New Earth. Such is not an accurate portrayal of your earth reality.
Even though you are combining heaven and earth, you are of earth until you transition. So the petty aspects of your life need to be addressed – not as a punishment, but as a creation of your earth life.
You created the life you are now living or are in the process of creating. There is no vicious god punishing you for past ills. Nor are you less talented than others creating the life of their dreams.
The life you have now was created by you for a reason – whether joyful, frightening or painful. Your logical action would be to understand why you created this life. But then, logic no longer applies with your New You being. Logic is of the mind. Love of self and others is of the heart.
You are evolving from logic to heart at warp speed.
*
And your heart being needs to love you as much as anyone. You are valuable. Most likely, more valuable than you realize. For you are the scout masters / pioneers / wayshowers of New Earth.
*
You learned that love is the key for new you and New Earth. Now you are learning to apply that love – starting with yourself. A piece that is fairly difficult – not to understand, but to act upon. You wonder if self-love is wrong or selfish. Because acting on self-love often feels wrong, even though the result is you accepting yourself for who you are.
*
You believe you can love yourself a bit, but if someone requests this or that and acquiescing takes away from something you want or need, you still feel uncomfortable negating their request. Such is not loving someone, that is valuing them more than yourself. Perhaps you believe that entity is more important or less powerful than you or too young or too old to take care of themselves. Are they bringing light to earth? Does that mean you play God or accept a world parent role?
*
All are control issues. But unlike what you perhaps believe, control of yourself. Insisting that you are stronger, better or more powerful than others so you must deny yourself anything of joy, contentment or peace UNTIL others less wonderful than you are taken care of.
*
Again, a caretaker role – one you were certain you put aside. And so you have at more visible levels, but your need to caretake others at your expense continues in so many little ways throughout your day.
You are not responsible for those of earth or for being a good girl or boy for the Universes. You are a young Universal being learning to maneuver in New Earth with a new physical being. You do not have the energy to caretake others. Nor is such even close to your new you role.
*
How can you project self-love to others if that self-love is merely another caretaking role?
The obvious question is how can an infant, disabled or very elderly person care for themselves? How indeed? Is it not time for you to note their strengths and to be beside them as they evolve into their new being, instead of forcing them into the box you feel is right for them? For when you decide what they need and try to fulfill those needs, you are moving from a love role to that of caretaker.
*
No one of earth requires a caretaker even though such a servant – and that is the correct term – appears as a wonderfully loving role. That is not to say infants need to be self-sufficient, but instead for you to act with love and dignity for yourself as well as others.
*
Loving yourself, as much as others, is a gift given to earth. Putting others before yourself is a repetition of all you learned for eons. If you are not living in joy, you cannot impart that sensation to anyone including your children.
*
Children have not yet learned how to mask their emotions or the emotions of others. They know when you are sad, mad or frustrated even if they cannot yet label such emotions. To pretend otherwise only confuses and teaches them that masking emotions is correct for earth life. You are their role model. The same is true for the very elderly, the disabled, the disenfranchised.
*
As more earth entities allow themselves to feel and express their emotions, those who remain disingenuous, 3D beings will be more and more uncomfortable for others will know their words and actions do not synch.
*
It is becoming more difficult to pretend to be someone you are not for you are beginning to truly love yourself.  And as you do, you are discovering that caretaking others – pretending to be who they wish you to be or who you think you should be – is neither right nor comfortable for you or them.
So it is you are learning how to be honest with yourself and others. Even though your honesty does not necessarily meet society’s 3D expectations, you cannot do less and continue to grow in loving yourself. So be it. Amen.

Wes Annac – Why Limit Yourself to One Life Purpose? – 10-15-15

Credit: newmessage.org

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

http://wesannac.com/2015/10/15/why-limit-yourself-to-one-life-purpose/

I really appreciated a recent post from Thousand Thoughts that encouraged people to be open to having more than one passion in life.

Not everyone has only one passion, the author tells us, and some people discover other passions later in life.

“While it’s true that there are people on the planet who are born with one passion that lasts an entire lifetime, this doesn’t hold true for everyone. In fact, there are many who start out with one passion, only to discover that they are passionate about something else later on in life.” (1)

The author also encourages us to let our passion and purpose manifest in unique ways, whether we have one or several.

“When we think that there is only one purpose for our lives, this can cause anxiety from fear of ‘getting it wrong.’ But, life can be a thrilling rollercoaster ride full of twists, turns, and loop-di-loops. Some people will indeed find that one passion that takes all of their focus but, there are others that will find that they have a passion for several different things.

“Simply trust in what you love and you will be divinely guided to your passion. But take note; sometimes the way that your passion manifests may be different from what you have envisioned. In other words, the road that we think is easiest isn’t always the one that we end up taking.” (2)

Credit: quoteswave.com

There are so many things to be passionate about in this world, and it’d be silly to limit ourselves to one or two and forget about all the rest. There’s nothing wrong with having just one passion and we’ll achieve a lot in that one field if we do, but there are too many great things to experience and be a part of to limit ourselves.

Most of us who think we only have one passion probably haven’t tried other things. Have you ever tried playing an instrument? Have you ever attended a peace rally or a protest against big banks? Have you ever tried your hand at writing or making a video?

Some of the most inspirational people have multiple passions, and while they might be known mainly for one or two, they’ve branched out and tried all kinds of different things. Some of them have passions they hold just as dear as the things they’re known for, and you’d never expect them to be interested in so many different things.

Our passion and purpose come naturally, and if ten things light our inner fire, we might want to spend some time with all of them.

Once we have an idea of what we want to do, the next step is to make some kind of plan, however vague, that we can act on when we’re inspired. We might have to push ourselves a little in the beginning, but the initial trouble will smooth itself out if we keep going. The key in this stage is not to let the trouble defeat us, and it requires self-confidence.

Credit: crazierlife.com

Every creative outlet requires self-confidence, and while we’ll always need it, we need it the most in the beginning. We have to have the courage to push on even when we aren’t doing very well, and we have to cozy up to the idea of failure. Only then can we find true success, and even when we accept and learn from failure, it might take some to succeed in the way we want.

If our life purpose does consist of multiple things, we can still focus mostly on one or two of them. We’ll just have to try to make time for all of them, which can be hard in our rushed modern world, but we’ll be glad we made the effort if we succeed. Our purpose will become our life, and we’ll be excited to wake up in the morning to a life of passionate work and fulfillment.

If your work lights your inner fire, you can bet it puts you in a higher state of consciousness where you’re more heart-centered and connected with the intuition. Thus, we raise the planetary consciousness whether or not our work reaches the masses, and this is enough of a reason to joyfully pursue it.

The Gabriel Messages book and the companion cards continue to be basic tools for me that are powerfully relevant for the changing times in which we now live. We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of the week.

For this week’s issue, your message from Archangel Gabriel expands our consciousness into new possibilities.

The Gabriel Message card for this week

Trust in the Universal Flow of Good and know there is a Creative Solution for all situations.

We are really being challenged to trust these days. If we look outside ourselves to find goodness, it is often difficult to see. With so much change swirling in the world around us and within our lives, it is even challenging to trust that there is a benevolent outcome.

Archangel Gabriel sprung the idea of Creative Solutions on me in a meditation in 2006. At the time I wanted to find a new place to rent. I needed to leave the house where I was living in two weeks. I had discovered that there was such a shortage of rentals in the area I was looking that a walk-in closet was for rent and actually had a waiting list. I had a loose verbal agreement with a friend for her cottage, even though I knew it was only temporary and not the perfect place for me. I had enjoyed being in the sweet spirit of Hawaii for 20 years, loved the beauty and the culture, and had no intention of leaving the islands.

During my meditation that morning, Archangel Gabriel had impressed on me that no matter what the situation was, no matter how dire things appeared, Creative Solutions Abound! Those were the words, including the exclamation point. I was told that there is always a Creative Solution available within the Divine Mind. That sounded great, so I asked for a Creative Solution in my housing situation, and I gave thanks in advance, knowing it was so.

When I started my day, I decided to give my friend a call to see when I could get inside the cottage. She seemed surprised and very casually said, “Oh, I rented it to someone else.” I don’t remember any more of the conversation because I was going through a number of emotions very quickly. Panic was the first, anger was the second, but then humor was the third as I remembered my conversation with Gabriel that morning. Once again, I proclaimed Creative Solutions, blessed her and hung up the phone laughing.

In the week that followed I found no place to live that worked for me. It became obvious by the divine discontent within me that it was time to leave my beloved island home. Obviously that was the Creative Solution that I had never considered. I made plans to put my car on the ship to the mainland U.S., and every step I made from then on seemed blessed with amazing synchronicity and divine assistance. Seven years later I live in Mt. Shasta, a place I truly love with a soul community I had prayed for but never experienced. I have learned to trust that there is a universal flow of divine goodness, that we live in a benevolent Universe, and when I call forth a Creative Solution, one will be there.

It is obvious when we look at the world that solutions of Divine proportions are required if humanity and the Earth are to thrive in the future. We often cannot see clearly because we are still enmeshed in the problem. This is exactly the time to ask for Creative Solutions to be revealed and allow the miraculous outworking of the Divine to intervene. What I have discovered is that Trust is a divine attribute that needs to be applied to every area of my life, often moment to moment. Trust is an essential ingredient in my happiness.

Here is a prayer suggestion…

Divine Presence,

I invite more Trust into my mind and into my life. Help me to remember that there is an essential Goodness inside me and that Good is a divine attribute, always available in the field of all potential.

Impress clearly upon my being that no matter what it looks like, there is a Creative Solution in all situations. I want to embody this Truth deep within me, and know it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Thank you for the Peace in my heart when I allow Trust to guide my way. And so it is.

The Gabriel Messages #40

Trust in the universal flow of good and know there is a Creative Solution for all situations.

Dear One,

The Divine Presence is an energy which is omnipotent, everywhere present and has infinite capacity for good. This energy flows through you and surrounds you at all times. There is never a time when you are not a part of this energy flow of God, which is Divine Love. In this you can place your trust. You can also be assured that regardless of where you are or what the situation is, all energies flow to the highest good for all concerned, at all times.

Practice

You can set an intention in your mind or on paper for what you want to see manifest in your life. This gives direction to the universal flow of energy. It’s like holding a vision of your target in your mind, and then taking aim with a bow and arrow. When you release the arrow, you trust it will go where you aim it. The power of God is the energy behind the release of the arrow, but you are the one who takes aim. When you clearly know what qualities you want in your life, this Universal energy will flow where you want it, following the direction of your intention.

The qualities we refer to are qualities of consciousness — like Peace, Love, Harmony, Joy, Divine Order, and Abundance. All these words have been used to describe qualities of the Higher Power and as they manifest through the universal flow of energy in your life, and create the perfect outworking of your soul’s expression in every situation.

God wants you to experience happiness, love and all that is good. You have a divine right to ask for these qualities to manifest. Regardless of your circumstance, begin now to be very clear about what qualities you want in your life. Write them down. Post them in a place where you will be reminded. You can set the course for your life in this way. Review your intentions often and remain aware of them when circumstances seem upsetting. It is in those moments of upset that you can clearly ask for Divine Order and Harmony to manifest. After that, you need to let go and trust. When you let go, turning the situation over to a Higher Power, it allows a Creative Solution to manifest that you would have never imagined.

The grace of God is available to all who ask and know what qualities they want to manifest in their lives. Remember your guidance for today:

Trust in the universal flow of good and know there is a Creative Solution for all situations.

Wes Annac – Don’t Be Afraid to Take the Next Step – 10-5-15

Credit: gf911.com

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

http://cultureofawareness.com/2015/10/05/dont-be-afraid-to-take-the-next-step/

If you’ve found your purpose in life, it’s time to stop hesitating, stop being afraid and dive headfirst into it. You’ll continue to keep yourself from the life you want if you don’t, and a purposeless life is usually caused by a fear of failure or success. This fear can either stop us or motivate us, and we’ll be constantly disappointed with life if we let it stop us.

Until we confront it and the hesitation that comes with it, we’ll never live the life we want or enjoy the work that comes with it. Instead of giving it so much power over us, we can realize its potential as a motivator and let it inspire us to live with passion and purpose. For a lot of us, our purpose lies in our creativity and the medium we’ve chosen to get our truth out to the world, such as writing, music or painting, and these things challenge us to either give into our fears or use them as inspiration to succeed.

Once we discover what we want to do and we’re at least somewhat motivated to do it, embracing it and working hard will allow us to get the most out of it. I won’t lie to you – being creative is a lot of work, whether you write articles and books, compose music, paint uplifting and inspiring pictures, or anything else. There will be days when you don’t feel like you’re getting much out of it, and these are the most important times to keep going.

When we feel our least inspired, the higher level of inspiration and success we want is actually right in front of us. Our fear to take that next step usually causes our lack of inspiration, and some people stop every time and wait until they’re back in their comfort zone, which is where they think their inspiration lives. We become truly inspired when we leave our comfort zone and embrace that next level that we hide from when we “don’t feel it”, and getting past our unwillingness to keep going is the hardest part.

There’s a fine line between not pushing ourselves and remaining in our comfort zone, because we have to push ourselves a little to get over that initial hurdle we’re afraid to confront. We don’t want to push ourselves so hard that we burn ourselves out, which is why a middle ground is necessary.

Maybe we can push ourselves one day and make our work easier or more comfortable the next. We have to find the methods that work for us as individuals, but giving in to a lack of inspiration or a crippled will to work will keep us stuck. It’ll keep us from creating the life we want, and we’ll be unable to escape limited circumstances for which we’re responsible.

The biggest reason we fear taking the next step is because we don’t want to fail, and we’ll continue to struggle if we keep letting the fear of failure stop us. I’ll use my own writing as an example.

There are times when my writing flows, and all kinds of thoughts pour in and compete to be expressed. There are other times when I barely squeeze out a few words every five minutes for the entire piece, which can be frustrating for any writer or creative person.

I used to fear the times when the words don’t flow, but lately, I’ve learned to be okay with it. I accept that there’ll be times when I don’t have much to say or my writing doesn’t flow at all, and when it happens, I usually push through it regardless because I know writing is a big part of my purpose.

It comes down to accepting our circumstances in any moment instead of fearing or rebelling against them, and along with peace of mind, acceptance is a creative person’s best ally. Embracing our work regardless of how hard it can be is a close second, and the ability to use fear as a motivator instead of an inhibitor will help us take our work to the next level.

With the number of people who are waking up and using their preferred outlet to encourage change in the world, we have a great opportunity to make our mark and I think we should take it. When the time comes for us to start doing more with our work, we can either cower in fear or rise to the occasion, ready and willing to contribute to the planet’s evolution.

Everything we give is significant, which is why we shouldn’t fear failure or a perceived inability to do things that matter. Self-empowerment teaches us that our work is valuable no matter what level we do it on, and if you’re inspired to contribute, the only thing I can recommend is to keep at it. Work hard every single day, and know that your work is as meaningful as anyone else’s. Also remember that if you do decide to take it to the next level and you can persevere, you’ll achieve things you never thought possible.

What is my Divine Plan? – by 2020 Spirtual Vision Blog – 10-2-15

https://2020spiritualvision.wordpress.com/2015/10/02/what-is-my-divine-plan/

Have you asked yourself this? I have. It’s like asking, what is my purpose? If you’re not careful, you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure this out. For some, the answer comes easily. For others, this question burns in them. It can become their mission.

Well guess what. You are living your Divine Plan. Yep. So take the pressure off yourself. You are right where you are supposed to be, doing what you are supposed to be doing. Breathe. You have done nothing wrong. You are not missing out on anything.

There is THE Divine Plan and then your Divine Plan. Both are fluid. Both are also literally mind blowing. If you’re a type A personality, you’ve probably want at least an outline and even better, detailed pages, lots of them. Step by step instructions (reassurance). You feel certain you can handle this information.

Let go.

Spirit is not to be controlled or predicted. A Divine Plan is about freedom, creativity and love. It changes in every moment.

I often read online articles and have been drawn to some of the 5D/Wave X writing. I’m a mutt so I follow many themes of spirituality. I think some hoped that by now they would KNOW. Many have spent years diligently meditating and being a student. My advice, be what has been created. You have changed. Go into the world and be yourself. Being is Spirit. Over-doing and thinking is the mind.

Trust that the Universe will find a way to guide you. Also allow time for your soul to emerge. You might think you have already done this. When you have spent many lifetimes out of alignment, it does take time to re-form this relationship. There is no rush. Everything is working out for you.

So on occasion in meditation ask, what can I do with the knowledge and skills that I possess? What is the next step? Even better… just be at peace and breathe.

Spirit is not serious so… don’t take all of this so serious.  HAVE FUN… lighten up.  That is far more attractive.

I channeled this a few weeks ago and it ties right in: https://2020spiritualvision.wordpress.com/channeled-messages/september-2015/

Alena Hall @ in5d.com – 10 Ways Introverts Interact Differently With The World – 9-21-15

Introvert

by Alena Hall,

Introverts and extraverts may seem the same on the surface, but if you look at the way they respond to life’s everyday occurrences, differences begin to emerge.

Last month, for example, Science of Us writer Melissa Dahl reported on findings from psychologist Brian Little’s latest book on personality science, Me, Myself, and Us: The Science of Personality and the Art of Well-Being, which showed that introverts are better off avoiding caffeine before a big meeting or important event.

Little cites the theory of extraversion by Hans Eysenck and research by William Revelle of Northwestern University, explaining that introverts and extraverts naturally differ when it comes to their alertness and responsiveness to a given environment. A substance or scene that overstimulates the central nervous system of an introvert (which doesn’t take much) might cause him or her to feel overwhelmed and exhausted, rather than excited and engaged.

In her 2012 TED Talk titled “The Power of Introverts,” author Susan Cain reiterated this point in her definition of introversion, explaining that the trait is “different from being shy.”

“Shyness is about fear of social judgment,” Cain said. “Introversion is more about how do you respond to stimulation, including social stimulation. So extraverts really crave large amounts of stimulation, whereas introverts feel at their most alive and their most switched on and their most capable when they are in quieter, more low-key environments.”

Now it goes without saying that most of our societal constructs cater to the former — from open office spaces to loud bars to the structure of our educational system — despite the fact that anywhere from one-third to half of the population has an introverted temperament.

While a person’s introverted or extraverted tendencies fall within a spectrum — there is no such thing as a pure introvert or pure extravert, according to famous Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung — an introvert is most obvious and vulnerable when he or she is in an overstimulating environment.

Coffee jitters aside, here are 10 ways introverts physically interact with the world around them differently than extraverts.

They withdraw in crowds.

“We hit the 20th century and we entered a new culture that historians call the culture of personality,” said Cain in her TED Talk. “We had evolved from an agricultural economy to a world of big business, and so suddenly people are moving from small towns to the cities, and instead of working alongside people they’ve known all their lives, now they are having to prove themselves in a crowd of strangers.”

The resulting crowd, which is often loud, noisy and congested, easily overstimulates introverts and drains them of their physical energy. They end up feeling more physically isolated than supported by their surroundings, and would rather be anywhere but that sea of people.

Small talk stresses them out, while deeper conversations make them feel alive.

While most extraverts are energized by such interactions, introverts often feel intimidated, bored or exhausted by them. It’s not uncommon in large conversations for introverts to take on the role of the quiet listener and then take time alone once it’s complete. As Sophia Dembling, the author of The Introvert’s Way: Living A Quiet Life In A Noisy World, explains in her book, it ultimately comes down to how a person receives (or doesn’t receive) energy from his or her surroundings. Instead, introverts prefer deeper conversations, oftentimes about philosophical ideas.

They succeed on stage — just not in the chit-chat afterwards.

“At least half of people who speak for a living are introverted in nature,” according to Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, Ph.D, a certified speaking professional, executive coach and author of Quiet Influence: The Introvert’s Guide to Making a Difference. They simply play to their strengths, and prepare extensively. In fact, some of the most successful performers are introverts. Remaining on a stage, removed from a massive audience, proves far easier than the small talk-filled conversations that follow.

They get distracted easily, but rarely feel bored.

 

If you’re looking to destroy an introverted person’s attention span, just put them in a situation where they feel overstimulated. Due to increased sensitivity to their surroundings, introverts struggle with feeling distracted and sometimes overwhelmed in large crowds and open office spaces.

However, when they are in peace and quiet, they have no issue tending to a favorite hobby or delving into a new book for hours. Having that time to take care of their inner selves helps them recharge while enjoying an activity they already enjoy.

They are naturally drawn to more creative, detail-oriented and solitary careers.

Introverts naturally prefer spending time alone or in a small group, delving deeply into one task at a time and taking their time when it comes to making decisions and solving problems. Therefore, they fare better in work environments that allow them to do all of these things. Certain professions — including writers, in-the-field natural scientists and behind-the-scenes tech workers — can give introverts the intellectual stimulation they crave without the distracting environment they dislike.

When surrounded by people, they locate themselves close to an exit.

Introverts not only feel physically uncomfortable in crowded places, but also do their best to mediate that discomfort by hanging as close to the periphery as possible. Whether it be by an exit, at the back of a concert hall, or an aisle row on an airplane, they avoid being surrounded by people on all sides, according to Dembling.

“We’re likely to sit in places where we can get away when we’re ready to — easily,” Dembling previously told HuffPost.

They think before they speak.

This habit of introverts is often what earns them their reputations as listeners. It is second nature to them to take their time before opening their mouths, reflecting internally, instead of thinking out loud (which is more common among extraverts). They may seem more quiet and shy because of this behavior, but it just means that when they do speak, the words they share have that much more thought — and sometimes power — behind them.

They don’t take on the mood of their environment like extraverts do.

A 2013 study published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience found that extraverts and introverts process experiences through the brain’s “reward” centers quite differently. While extraverts often sense a feel-good rush of dopamine related to their surroundings, introverts tend to not experience such a shift. In fact, people who are naturally introverted do not process rewards from external factors as strongly as extraverts do.

They physically can’t stand talking on the phone.

Most introverts screen their phone calls — even from their friends — for several reasons. The intrusive ringing forces them to abandon focus on a current project or thought and reassign it to something unexpected. Plus, most phone conversations require a certain level of small talk that introverts avoid. Instead, introverts may let calls go to voicemail so they can return them when they have the proper energy and attention to dedicate to the conversation.

They literally shut down when it’s time to be alone.

“Solitude matters, and for some people, it is the air that they breathe.” – Susan Cain

Every introvert has a limit when it comes to stimulation. HuffPost blogger Kate Bartolotta explains it well when she writes, “Think of each of us as having a cup of energy available. For introverts, most social interactions take a little out of that cup instead of filling it the way it does for extroverts. Most of us like it. We’re happy to give, and love to see you. When the cup is empty though, we need some time to refuel.”

Greetings, Beloveds.

I am Archangel Michael and I wish to speak to you today about the simple things. They are things you take for granted but are, in fact, some of the most important things for you to consider seriously.

What are these simple things? Breathing, thinking, praying, meditating, talking, seeing, hearing, doing. They are things people do every day, but all of them have a bearing on your health and wellbeing, depending on the manner in which you do them!

Your breath is one of your life forces. It oxygenates your blood, which is also a life force. Each breath you take brings you closer to death, as there are a certain number of breaths allocated to each lifetime. . Every breath you take is as important as the last and the air that you breathe creates its own vibration within your body as it mixes with your energy.

Deep breathing brings the most benefits as it saturates the blood with oxygen and allows the body to absorb optimum energy. Shallow breathing is much less productive and can actually lead to illness and health problems. Breathing mindfully allows you to be in full awareness of not only your breath but also your body – as you breathe deeply you can bring in air and light, relaxing your body and your mind. Your health will benefit as a result.

The way you think, talk, see and hear and ultimately act affect your health as well because they determine the vibration that you emit to the world. Do you see, hear, think and say things that are filled with light, or are your thoughts, words and deeds tinged with grey and bringing you down? Everything you think, say, do and believe creates your world.

When you breathe in breathe in light and love and breathe out gratitude. See the beauty in the sunset and hear the magic in the chorus of the birds. Speak kindly to others and erase unkind thoughts as soon as they surface. Love yourself and your body and show this love to others.

Now more than ever is the time to meditate and call on the angelic realm for guidance and assistance. We will always answer your call.

I AM Archangel Michael.

French Architect Envisions a Futuristic Sustainable Floating City Shaped Like a Manta Ray – 8-26-15

floating cityFrench Architect Envisions a Futuristic Sustainable Floating City Shaped Like a Manta Ray   –   8-26-15

From The Mind Unleashed, August 25, 2015

Lately, we have seen lots of impressive designs for futuristic underwater and floating ocean cities. In most of the cases, the idea to live in the ocean derives from the fact that one day the humanity may have no land left for new constructions due to the constant population growth and the ever-worsening state of the environment. However, a project by French architect Jacques Rougerie was inspired mainly by his love for the ocean.

In a recent interview, he called himself a “mérien,” which can be translated as “oceanite” or “one belonging to the sea.” Rougerie envisions to create the City of Mériens which will be populated by people who share his passion for the ocean and would be interested in studying the surrounding marine environment.

This 3,000 foot by 1,600 foot floating university city will be shaped like a manta ray and will have the capacity to accommodate 7,000 people, including researchers, professors and students. Apart from the living quarters, there will also be a number of laboratories and classrooms, as well as leisure and sport facilities.

The city will be 100% self-sustaining, powered by renewable marine energy and equipped with innovative recycling systems. According to Rougerie, it will produce no waste at all. The idea is to build a city that not only will contribute to the exploration of the marine environment but will also have a zero impact on it.

It is not the first example of Rougerie’s aquatic architecture – his $50 million project named SeaOrbiter is currently under construction. This futuristic ship, which has already been dubbed “a starship Enterprise for the water,” is going to be a floating skyscraper and an innovative oceanography lab. Of course, there will be a place for SeaOrbiter on Rougerie’s City of Mériens – it will be located in the inner lagoon of the structure, along with other marine research vessels.

Despite that the project is quite ambitious and can even seem utopian to some people, one day it may be implemented and we might see a real-life City of Mériens. 70-year-old Rougerie, who describes himself as a “pragmatic dreamer,” hopes to inspire younger generations to make his project a reality someday.

ADVENTURES – idealisticrebel – Women’s Issues, Peace, Creativity & Spirituality – 8-6-15

A Red Rose for those who have died in  War and for will in the Future

Well, I am 98% unpacked and have visited the youngest grandchildren. A year ago, I thought that I was now at an age where I was too old for adventures. Then, I began to think about moving and as most of you know, I have moved to Asheville. It has been an adventure. You are never too old to change your life. Never to old to face new challenges or to see the world from a new perspective. I am sitting at my desk in front of my bedroom windows listening to a symphony of toads, frogs, locusts, fish in the river, wind gently caressing the leaves on the trees along the river and the sound of traffic. My health does seem to be doing some better and my spirits are up.

I have had visits with old friends, I miss newer friends and I am beginning to make connections in the city. My oldest grandchildren fell in love with Asheville. They live in NC, on the coast. It is much more humid and somewhat warmer there.

I have a sense of anticipation and curiosity. I truly do not know what is coming. This feels exciting. I am on the third floor and no longer have a garden which I miss very much. The mountains and the river are full of so much life and I am going to do whatever exploring I can do.

A young woman I know told her mother she wouldn’t be able to help her because she did have a life. She does, but so does her mother and all of the rest of humanity. It is important to remember that we share this lovely world and taking some time to give to others is a privilege. We enrich each others lives and we can change someone’s day with a smile or a thank you.

As I sit here writing to you and smelling the beautiful air, I realize that the haters, liars, the selfish are not happy, or content. They are outside of this creation we call Mother Earth. I am glad I began this new life and I am sure many adventures are coming to my life. Some all ready have and have been exciting and some were harder, but I am here and grateful to the Universe for my courage to start a new life. Don’t let change scare you and don’t run from adventures. They could be the best things in life you have ever experienced.

Hugs to all, Barbara

DEMYSTIFYING DEATH – Archangel Michael via Ronna Hermann – 8-1-15

ImageDEMYSTIFYING  DEATH   –   Archangel Michael  via  Ronna Hermann   –   8-1-15

Beloved masters, on the earthly plane, humans rejoice at the birth of a child, for it is indeed a miracle of creation, and they mourn the death of a loved one, for they feel a personal loss of that person from their midst.  However, death is also a miracle and, from a spiritual point of view, it is a time of rejoicing, for it is a time of returning to a truer STATE OF BEING.
*
We have often spoken of diminished consciousness, and most of you are now aware that the ascension process entails expanding your awareness to integrate all the Facets of conscious expression.  As you have often heard, you are not just a human being with a Soul; you are a wondrous Being who has experienced a tremendous variety of physical expressions of consciousness.
*
          In ancient times, when you experienced the material realms in semi-solid or in solid form to varying degrees (while in the Higher-Fourth and Lower-Fifth Dimensions, either on Earth or other planets in your solar system or galaxy), you kept the same form for a much longer time than you do now.  In fact, you kept the same physical vessel for thousands of years by your timekeeping. The transition process and the relinquishing of a physical vessel at the end of a lifetime were as natural as discarding a suit of old clothes.  Death as you now know it did not exist until humanity sank into the density of the Lower Fourth and Third Dimensions, and you forgot that your sojourn on Earth was only a very small interlude amongst a vast array of experiences while on your wondrous journey throughout the cosmos.
*
          After a special farewell ceremony, the departing Soul stepped into a special Fountain of Transition where the Violet Flame of Transformation blazed brightly (the Violet Flame is not hot as you may imagine, but cool and soothing). Then he/she was immediately transported to the appropriate Higher Dimensional environment. 
*
          Those who were left behind in the physical realm could communicate telepathically with their departed loved ones, and they knew that they would meet again sometime in the future. They also knew that they could interact while in their Etheric Body with their loved ones during their nightly sojourns, for their nightly travels were as real and memorable as their daytime experiences.
*
          Some time in the future, humanity will cease to fear death and will understand that it is a natural part of the amazing, ever-evolving creative process. There is a natural flow of birth, death/transition, rest and assimilation, and rebirth in order to experience the wondrous variety of shapes, sizes, forms and realities available to you as a cocreator.  In the meantime, you must release many of your old fixed ideas and taboos about death and the hereafter, and know that the life you are now experiencing is only a moment in universal time.
*
          One of the most important things for you to understand is that everything you experience begins within. You are a microcosm or a miniature Universe within the macrocosm, which contains the totality of the Omniversal experience.  You have been described as a cell within the Heart/Mind of the Supreme/Creator, and this is a valid description. Everything in Creation contains Essence, the Love/Light Energy of Creation, or a Spark of the Divine.  Again, we stress, nothing can exist without this life-giving Essence. This magnificent Spectrum of Light was sent forth from the Supreme Creator in a variety of diminished levels of Luminance to our Father/Mother God and then out into our Universe via the RAY-diance of the great Archangels. None of the manifested Universes could exist without it and neither could you. 
*
          You have often read/heard of someone who has had a near-death experience, and how they felt the sensation of being drawn toward the Light.  Most often, the experience is the same with only a few variations.  Usually gravely ill or in a traumatic situation, the person is drawn into the Light, and they are infused with a sense of bliss and incredible, overwhelming love. Quite often, they will see a well-known Being of Light or, sometimes, a loved one who has passed on. They usually have a feeling that they can only go so far toward the Light, and they are then drawn back into their physical body once more. At times, the Light Being speaks with them, but not always. Sometimes, they are given a choice to return to their physical existence or to continue toward the Light, and other times, they are told they must return, for their mission is not complete.
*
          Just as we explained that the Veil is not out there, but within your own brain structure, it is the same with the near-death experience. It all takes place within your own Higher-Dimensional Sacred Mind, orchestrated by your Higher Self. A near-death experience is usually a crossroad in life, a decision time and an opportunity to step onto the path of illumination.  And, quite often, but not always, a Soul-Merge occurs whereby a Higher Frequency part of your Soul-Self, which resides in your Soul Star Chakra (approximately six to eight inches above your head), moves into your Sacred Heart center, and begins the process of becoming the director of your life’s experiences instead of the ego-desire personality.
*
          During the near-death experience, there is a chemical reaction that takes place, which facilitates the admittance to a portion of the brain called the Sacred Mind. This allows access to specific areas which contain some of the Light Packets of Wisdom stored therein. These Light Packets are composed of higher frequencies of Light, and they contain information that the person cannot ordinarily access. This not only feels and looks different to the person’s conscious mind, but often gives them access to a portion of their history, and sometimes to their lineage and other important information.
*
          Remember this, everything you have ever experienced and all that you are, from the first time you came into your individualized consciousness as a Spark of the Divine, and became conscious of the fact that “I AM That, I AM – I AM a Facet of the Creator,” is stored within the Light Packets of Wisdom stored in the Higher-Dimensional levels of the brain.  Stored within your Sacred Mind, your DNA and your Chakra system are all the virtues, attributes, qualities and aspects of the Supreme Creator.  They are waiting for you to claim the keys to the kingdom by integrating the higher frequencies of Light, which will give you access to all the magnificence of your Divine Heritage.
*
          You have an Etheric Body which contains a complete, authentic replica of your physical, mental and emotional bodies.  When you die or completely leave your body, the Silver Cord (as it is called), is severed and you totally vacate the physical vessel, which immediately begins to disintegrate. Your Soul has slowly been merging with your Etheric Body, and you then move outward into the realms of the Higher Dimensions.
*
          Many of you have a false conception of what it is like in the Higher Dimensions. The higher realms are not a nebulous, unsubstantial environment, and they will seem no different to you than your earthly physical surroundings. However, as you will observe over time, there are many differences. When you pass over, you will have form and substance.  Yes, your form will be more refined and not as solid as it is in the Third- / Fourth-Dimensional environment, but you will feel solid and everything around you will have form and order as well. The level you are attuned to or compatible with will determine how consciously aware you are, and the abilities you will have, as well as how your surrounding environment will look. Again, the frequencies you project or resonate to will determine which Dimension or Sub-Plane Dimensional level you will go to, and also what level of cosmic information you will be able to access. Your Auric Field is like a cloak that surrounds your Etheric or Astral bodies, and it is either a cloak of Light or a shroud of negative, inharmonious energy you have accumulated over your many past lifetime experiences.
*
          We have explained this in the past, however, it is important that you have a clear understanding of the transition process, and so we will again give you a brief recap of what occurs after a Soul leaves the physical body. Those who are “en-Lighten-ed” and Self-aware are immediately taken before their Guardian Council to review their past life, not a judgment, just a review to see what challenges and opportunities were met in a positive manner, with love and compassion, and which tasks were not completed, and therefore, will have to be experienced again. You cannot hide anything from anyone in the higher realms, for your Aura tells your complete story, and everyone can see the radiance and Lightness of your Spirit-Self, or the lack thereof.  Your form will be beautiful and perfect, and you may appear to be any age or in any form you desire.
*
          You have many choices to make after you complete the review process. You can go to the universities of learning in various star systems, you can serve in a multitude of capacities, you can enjoy the beauty of Creation and practice your cocreation skills, or any variety of other experiences too vast to outline here. Soul advancement is not as rapid in the higher realms as it is in the physical body, for you are aware of the Universal Laws, and there are immediate results from your thoughts and actions. That is why everyone is so anxious to incarnate on the earthly plane, even though it is fraught with challenges, limitation, and often pain and suffering.
*
           Even though it may be difficult to believe, it is a wonderful opportunity and a great privilege to be embodied on planet Earth at this time of great transformation. There are many beautiful Souls standing in the wings hoping to have an opportunity to return to Earth and be a part of this wondrous evolutionary process. 
*
          Along with your willingness to come to Earth and to share your Light in order to assist humanity and your planet, you were given an opportunity to embody as much of your Divine Self as you could contain and use; that is the Golden Promise that was made to you before you returned to Earth for this life’s experience. It was/is an unprecedented opportunity to integrate the maximum amount of your God Consciousness, and to return to your true estate as a Being of Light.
*
          It is a different story for those who die a violent death—those who have lived a life of hate, fear and aggression toward others or have a great accumulation of negative karmic debt to overcome.  Those Souls are taken to what could be termed an “intensive care unit” where they are lovingly cared for by a host of Angels of Mercy.  These Souls are encased in a prison of their own making (their distorted Auric/Astral Field), and they will live in a dream state that consists of their beliefs, negative actions, and unrealistic concepts.  It is the closest thing to what could be termed “hell” or “purgatory,” for they are living in a world of lower frequency thought forms they have created on Earth during their many lifetime experiences.
*
          The Angels of Mercy constantly radiate the Love/Light of the Creator to them, and slowly, over time, and depending how dense the negative field is, the elixir of love gradually penetrates and dissolves the shell around the etheric boy and the soul.  There is always an opportunity to make restitution even though it may take eons to do so, depending on the severity and the magnitude of negativity involved. 
*
          Allow us to clear up another fallacy: it is not “sinful” to commit suicide or for a person to abdicate his/her life before his/her mission is complete. There are many reasons people decide to terminate their life or sacrifice their life for another. At times it is initiated by an overwhelming burden of shame, guilt or fear, sometimes for misplaced altruistic reasons (usually resulting from a martyr complex), or when a person has a terminal illness and the pain has become overbearing. These Souls will be shown how to rectify the situations which caused their suffering, pain or illness, and will be given another opportunity to get it right.
*
           If a person decides to end his/her life because of the painful situations they have created for themselves, they will not be able to avoid those same circumstances in a future lifetime, and so it just postpones the challenges and opportunities to learn their life lessons. Remember, you are always your own judge, and you decide with the assistance of your Guardian Council what your next life’s experience will be, with many choices and opportunities available. When in the environment of the Higher Dimensions, a Soul is always eager to rectify past mistakes so the auric field may be cleared of any inharmonious vibrational patterns, and the journey toward en-Lighten-ment may continue.
*
          It is also important for you to understand that the rules have changed as the process of evolution spirals to the next level. Each generation of Souls for the past hundred years or so has incarnated with more of their cosmic memory available to them. In other words, the veil of forgetfulness is thinning and is slowly being eliminated altogether. The membranes of Light around the multiple strands of DNA are also becoming thinner, and the young ones now being born will have access to abilities and talents that were not available to their parents and grandparents.  Call them what you wish: Indigo Children, Crystal Children, or the Golden Ones, they are wise OLD SOULS who agreed to incarnate on Earth to take the reins from you; their elders, and lead humanity into the Light of the New Age.
*
          It matters not if people deny the truth in what we are conveying to you; it is the Living truth and the Universal Law nevertheless, and every Soul is affected and ruled by the tenets of the Divine Plane, whether they believe it or not. Here again, the inner veil applies, and you must break through the limitations of the negative Third-/Fourth-Dimensional environment to gain access to this wondrous connection to SOURCE. You always have been, and always will be connected, to the ALL THAT IS.  The sense of disconnection is all within your mind, and the way to unlock the door to the River of Life is within the SACRED HEART.
*
        My beloved bearers of Light, we ask you to view each test and challenge as an opportunity to release outmoded thoughts and vibrational patterns which no longer serve your greatest good.  We implore you to view your life experiences through the filters of your Sacred Heart/Mind as you draw forth Creator Particles of Life/Light and infuse them with your love before radiating them out into the world and humanity.  We are all in this cosmic dance of the evolution, and together, we shall prevail.  I AM Archangel Michael.

PERSONAL NOTE FROM RONNA:
My dearest friends, the last month has been another challenging “Rite of Passage” for my family. Over the last five weeks, my oldest son, Rick, 68 years old, has been in and out of Veterans Hospital intensive care unit five times. The first time was so serious we almost lost him. His sodium levels kept dropping to dangerous levels, which could result in convulsions and even death. After an Endoscope, they found a “small cell cancerous growth” about the size of a silver dollar on his right lung. It is an aggressive, fast-growing type of cancer.  We were told that he has three to six months to live, if he does nothing. If he chooses to have chemo once a week and radiation treatments five days a week, he has an 80% chance of living for three to five years. However, there is a strong chance that the cancer will return during that time.
*
          Rick’s son, John, and his wife and two daughters live in Kalispell, MT (which was Rick’s home for many years).  Rick has decided to have the treatment, for his greatest desire is to return to Montana to be with his children and grand children. So, several family members drove down from Kalispell last week, and moved Rick, along with his Fifth Wheel Trailer (which he lives in) back to Montana. The VA hospital in Kalispell is excellent, and he will receive the treatment he needs there.
*
          I was very sad to see him leave; however, I know it is for the best. He has an extended family there that are all ready and willing to do whatever is necessary to help him get through this. We all have some grieving to do; however, we realize this is part of life, and we must make the best of it, for all concerned. Again, my fervent prayer is that he will have a few more good years to enjoy his precious family, and that when it is time to transcend, he may do so gently and peacefully. We thank all of you for your loving prayers and compassionate thoughts.  Forever love and Angel blessings. Ronna

Heavenletter #5351   –   Let Other People Be. Can You?, July 19, 2015

God said:

Returning to the topic of changing people, I would like to add that you adore someone and you get married. So far, so good, and then you see fault in the one you married, and you try to reform your partner in areas that are not yours to take over and remake to suit you. Your desire to make your partner into someone else may hurt your loved one’s heart to the core. No matter how well-intentioned you may be, you may be denying your beloved’s very Being. Who are you to presume to change your loved one’s preferences in life? You may try to take away someone’s very nature. Now We are dealing with the nitty-gritty of life.

When someone is one way, he or she is not another. Each person comes to this world with certain proclivities that belong to the person and not to you. Really, people will change, yet it is not for you to force or speed up change on anyone. In life, you learn what is your jurisdiction, and what is not.

When women go to a spa for a complete make-over, they have chosen to go to the spa. Each person comes into Life on Earth with predilections. Some are quick. Some are slow. Some like solitude. Some are gregarious.

Your friends and loved ones own their lives to live and decide for themselves. Another’s life is not yours to direct. Marriage is not a take-over. You do not want to force-feed another. Nor do you yourself want to be force-fed.

Someone’s basic nature has to be left alone. We are returning to the adage: What is for the goose may not be for the gander. All are made in My image, yet everyone, in terms of the world, is not made the same. This may be news for you, or it may not. Even so, you may jump in, and you and the other pay too high a price for realizing the fact that part of his or her nature is unacceptable to you.

It is guaranteed that your partner is not a perfect person. It is also guaranteed that you are not. It is guaranteed that no one’s standards are the same. If you and your partner grew up next door to each other all your lives, it is, nevertheless, as if you came from different planets. Differences arise.

You ask yourself: “How on Earth will I be able to let go of disrespecting differences and come to accept them?”

Dearly perplexed, the answer is: As best you can.

Easy to say you will leave your partner alone, and not so easy to live up to.

Some people put their socks in the laundry turned inside out while others are determined to turn their socks right side out. This could be a life-long battle. There are some matters that aren’t worth taking a stand on. Some matters cost too much.

Be careful that you do not step on another’s toes. Be careful that you allow freedom to others. Given that kind of freedom, someone may want to please you, yet not everyone is able to keep that up no matter how much they wish they could. By the same token, you may tire of someone’s trying to please you. As much as you can, let other people be.

Which is better or worse? To be a messy person or a nag? If you had to make a choice, which would you choose?

How much giving and love are you able to give others? Life tests you every day of your life. You test your own self as well. It is particulars that often make life difficult for you. The little things. You don’t want your life to become combative. When you put effort into changing another, you are almost certain to pay an endless price and exhort an endless price from the other as well. You do not have the authority to demand changes from another.

Take care with your children as well. Allow them their choices. Guide, support, love, yet not take over their lives as if their lives are yours to do with whatever you want.

Mahavatar Babaji  via  Ute Posegga-Rudel   –    Change Your Experience of This World   –   7-13-15BELOVEDS!

I Am Babaji, the savior of mankind, inasmuch as I am caring for your survival as a divine race.

I am the Consciousness of Light that is directing the forces of good to inspire the hearts of men to choose the right path. And the right path for mankind is always the one of liberation.

Stasis is never leading to liberation. And every movement forward is a choice that brings you to a heightened awareness, to an expansion of consciousness.

Stasis is dangerous because after a short while it tends to spiral downwards into tamasic, and then self-destructive tendencies.

It makes you abandon the path of raising your frequency into greater light and sink downwards into more and more darkness and unconsciousness, until you have forgotten the light.

So I am seeing to it that mankind is given constantly the opportunity to grow toward highest potential, which is your innate Divinity.

Without challenges, there are no impulses to set one foot before the other to overcome them, when darkness has already set in. Similarly, without suffering of what you don’t want, you do not begin your journey to find out how you could achieve what you want.

As soon as you begin this journey, you have in fact entered the spiritual path. Because with that initial question, you will discover that you cannot stop going forward until you are finding out who you are. And without knowing yourself, you are not able to create your own destiny.

To create your own destiny, you must know yourself. You must discover who you ARE, whereby you discover your divine creative powers. Creativity and Divinity are two sides of a coin, because divinity does not exist without creativity, and you cannot exercise your creative powers without knowing your divinity.

As you see, evolution occurs on the pillars of duality: In your situation, the light and the dark, as these forces are so dominant in your present experience. The emergence of the dark at these times, and the fight between the light and the dark forces, is merely the trick of your own Divine Consciousness to allow you to acknowledge that these dual forces are projections from your own inner state of human consciousness, fighting, in reality, within yourself – even if unconscious – yet.

What you perceive outside of yourself is the mirror that reminds you of what you have chosen at a time to play with and to experience in this incarnation. It is a mere exploration of those possibilities, because you all know profoundly your true state of mere bliss and mere light. But you asked yourself and wanted to experience: What if light would diminish, what if light would cease to exist, and what would be the outcome of it.

Now, after so much suffering and having fallen into the pit of darkness (darkness is always present as soon as only one iota of the Absolute Light is diminished), you remember the Infinite Light and its Source, pondering whether it is worth to continue further the down spiraling path. Now, many of you are all at the very threshold where you must make an important decision:

Do you want to go further down into the forgetfulness of your Divinity, or do you wish to return to your true Divine Nature? This is the decision you must make NOW. Because the state of your world shows that you haven´t yet made a clear choice.

There is not much time left to delay your answer to this question. You had plenty of opportunities and experiences to come to your conclusion.

Perhaps you are a bit afraid to return to the mere ecstasy of light because you had explored it already so well, and perhaps you are thinking you might be bored to return to this State (laughs), deprived of your many toys you have become addicted to, meanwhile.

But in any case, you must make your decision now. If you decide for the light, please know that this decision comes with rules:

It requires to set the intent to exercise exclusion of darkness as a given reality in your mind from now on. Why? Because with every thought that believes in darkness in any form, you are re-enforcing it. You are re-enforcing your self-identification with an imagined victimhood, instead of knowing that you have been always a creator god.

In any moment from now on, if you decide for the light, you must exercise your creative powers, not looking at what is, or seems to be, but looking in any moment at new, infinite Divine possibilities instead, – and choosing accordingly.

This is your new irrevocable responsibility from now on in order to change your experience of this world and to change it into a new adventure.

You see, boredom will not await you in the realms of light, as it might have hassled you before. But you will return to the light with new divine-creator powers that are one with the depth of All-Embracing Divine Love, a power you never were able to accomplish before to such a degree!

You will be given the opportunity to participate, from now on, in the glory of Divine Evolution that serves the inspiration and exaltation and expansion of Divine Creation.

What an excitement is awaiting you! Wake up, my dears, and be aware of the Divine Gift that is now being given to you. Not only be aware of it, but use it. Use it for the sake of planetary awakening, freedom, and happiness. Use it for the sake of brotherhood and a united humanity.

NOW is the time to decide where you want to go. Divine Creator Powers of Love are waiting for you, if you follow the Light. This is the moment where your evolution is truly beginning. And it has never been given to you in such a glory before.

So I am sure you will choose wisely.

My Blessings and my Love are with you!

I am Mahavatar Babaji!

Watch This Guy Build An Amazing Shelter In The Woods Using Only Dirt, Trees, & Rocks – People’s Trust Toronto

From Scratch

In our modern culture it’s rare to find many individuals with the knowledge to survive well should they find themselves lost in the woods or in need of survival skills. Perhaps this is because we think the chances we might ever need to use skills like this are low, or maybe we simply take our lifestyles for granted.  Either way, I do find it interesting to see how many friends I have that don’t even know the first thing about building a fire out in the woods.

In the video below, a man builds an amazing shelter in the woods using only the resources you would find there. Dirt, trees, rocks, and anything else he could find in his immediate surroundings are used to build a home better than many of us might be able to build even if we had access to Home Depot!

Maybe this could be inspiration for us to make sure we learn even the basics like building a fire or hanging food in a tree to keep away from animals. After all, if the time were to come where some of our infrastructures went down or had issues and we needed the basic skills of finding food, water, and shelter, a little woodcraft knowledge could really come in handy.

If anything, just enjoy the sheer skill and creativity this human being has.

Peter Borys Jr. – Divine Life on Earth – 6-29-15

Peter BorysPeter Borys Jr

http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/06/29/peter-borys-jr-the-divine-life-on-earth/

For many thousands of years, humanity has experienced life on Earth in a duality/polarity consciousness that is a dense frequency restriction of consciousness as physical matter.

It is a fear-based consciousness of conflict, control, and separation.  It operates as a conditioning within humanity through the thinking mind and a narrow range of the current physical sensory system.

We can speculate, debate, and offer particular points of view of the origins of the restrictive fear consciousness within humanity.  Is it part of an evolutionary process?  Is it an infiltration from negative intelligence or beings?  Is it a normal progression in the universe, or frequency range within this galaxy, universe, or cosmos?

Much of this information can be helpful in our journey of awakening and transforming to an expression of our Divine soul as embodied on Earth.  But what is most important is that we focus on resonating with the shifting frequencies that are assisting humanity to awaken to our infinite consciousness as lived through a physical body on Earth.

The information as consciousness and energy is being manifest to us in multiple levels.  It all emanates from the subtle energies within–that infinite realm of the heart where we resonate with the knowing mind of Light and the Divine feeling body.  In the domain of multidimensional unity consciousness, the perception of interior and exterior, inside and outside, and within and without is one unified frequency of consciousness.

Thus, our assistance from our Divine soul and infinite connections with intelligence in the dimensions of the universe and spiritual realms is also being received by our consciousness from the galaxy, Sun, and Earth.

The Sun is the major transducer of information, consciousness, and energy in our frequency levels of Earth life.  Information codes and the dimensions and vibrations of light that communicate with the Divine soul as human consciousness manifesting a physical vehicle of the body are relayed by the Sun.

For Earth life, the Sun is foundational in any inner heart-centered shift of our consciousness resonating with our infinite Divine consciousness.  We are in a rapidly shifting environment where the inner and outer are becoming the same experience.  In this frequency reorganization, we are going beyond the spirit/matter divide.  Spirit is matter and matter is spirit.  They are two aspects of a unified being and consciousness.

Humanity as Unified Spirit/Matter Being, Consciousness, and Energy

The perceived split between spirit and matter that has been the fear-based consciousness within humanity for thousands of years, has resulted in humanity living a restricted experience on Earth and not the fullness of the Divine soul.

In whatever way we have found ourselves in a fear-based consciousness as a narrow range of matter resulting from a spirit/matter split, it is clear that this is not natural to who we are as infinite Divine beings.  We are infinite knowing Divine souls experiencing a Divinity in a particular frequency organization through a physical body-mind.

Although we are already infinite and eternal Divine souls, the transformation to experience this fully on Earth as a physical body is a substantial shift in consciousness.  It is a wholesale relinquishing of a conditioned personal or egoic identity. It is a shift beyond the thinking mind to a heart-centered consciousness of intuitive mind and supermind—a mind that purely transduces and conveys infinite knowing in the physical frequency dimensions.

It is a change to an expanded human sensory system beyond the narrow confines of the current physical senses to an infinite subtle sensory range—a range that processes light and sound on multidimensional levels.  And most of all, it is a consciousness change manifesting beyond the current experience of the laws of physical matter.

In the true Divine physical, matter is fluid, pliable, melodic, and harmonic.  It is frictionless without grating, grinding, or interference to Divine loving and creative interaction.  This is the harmonic flow of love and creativity.  It is spontaneous, effortless, and of Divine flow—and infinite expansion and creative energy.  The shift to the Divine soul of humanity emanating as a Divine physical body on Earth is a profound and clear manifestation of the fullness of true being.

In the fullness of our true Divine being, humanity is infinite creativity.  Love is a never ending Divine being, consciousness, and energy that is perfect rest and perfect action.  Its energy is a perpetual heightening and deepening of infinite experience.  A

s we open to our multidimensional consciousness and beyond within a physical body manifestation on Earth, we will experience and express our infinite Divine awareness without need of time and space mind categories such as height and depth.  It is a whole new experience of physical matter.  It is still very much physical, but of a quality that bears no relation to our ordinary experience of the restrictions of current frequencies of physical matter.

The Divine Soul and Divine Physical Body

The Divine life on Earth with a Divine physical body is a fully harmonic experience of infinite levels of love and creativity as lived by the soul within matter frequencies.  It is an infinite experience of creativity with consciousness as matter that is fully unique while always being in perfect Divine harmony with all.  Humanity as a Divine soul and Divine physical body has an infinite range of subtle senses.  These senses work in harmony with the Light mind and Divine feeling within heart consciousness.

At this frequency of the Divine soul on Earth, communication includes telepathy and movement includes teleportation. These actions are intrinsic to the freedom of the soul and emanate into physical Earth experience without thought.  The cellular frequencies of the body emanate as a perpetual harmonic regeneration.

There will no longer be the fear-based encodings of ageing, disease, and degeneration.  The transition of the soul to other realms of experience beyond Earth will occur in ways that is beyond death of the physical body vehicle that we have known in the restrictive conflict, control, and separation consciousness.

The energy emanation of the Divine physical cellular consciousness will occur by the natural subtle, light, and sound frequencies of consciousness.  No longer will the body need to devour or consume separate energies that are lacking in a fear-based consciousness.

The energy configuration of the cells is fully sufficient as emanating from the infinite Divine frequencies.  The Divine soul as physical body is fully aware—gone are the split of conscious and unconscious.  Thus, the processing of dream states of consciousness is unnecessary.   Also, since the energy manifestation of the cellular consciousness is perpetual, there is no expending and replenishing of energy.

Therefore, there is no need for the body to recuperate in a sleep mode of consciousness.  The current fear-based consciousness of mind tires the systems of the body, and thus sleep has been a very important requirement of repair and recuperation in a restrictive consciousness.  In the freedom of Divine consciousness, energy is never expended or depleted. It just is. The action of energy and the manifestation of energy is the same thing.

The Divine life on Earth is a radical change in the perception of matter.  For the Divine soul to have the full experience of love and creativity in the Earth physicality, the manifestation of the physical body will have different qualities than current physical perception.

While this is a huge leap for human life on Earth, it is truly natural to the experience of a soul emanating within, through, and as a physical body.  The Divine life on Earth has been our longing during the years of the restrictive conflict, control, and separation consciousness.  It is simply the true essence of our being.

Humanity is a Divine soul emanating in physical form.  Living the fullness of truth of who we are as a loving and creative infinite Divine awareness will be living the Divine life on Earth as fully Divine physical matter.

May we continue to awaken, transform, and open to heart consciousness where we are aware of our being as Divine love and creativity that intends to live our full essence on Earth.

Steve Beckow – Breakthrough, Completion, and Closure – 6-29-15

Handshake 22

http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/06/29/breakthrough-completion-and-closure/

The ability to communicate is important among lightworkers who are leading, especially in the financial field.

People who’ve been old virtual friends are now having discussions they’ve never had before. Differences in values are emerging. Relations can become strained or even break down.

How are we to manage these exchanges and discussions that’ll stretch us to the limits?

One of the things I’m noticing is that the desire to get through the difficulties that arise varies inversely proportional to the degree of commitment a lightworker has to doing the work or completing their mission.

The higher the degree of commitment, the more the lightworker returns to the work of breakthrough and completion; the more ways they try to get through the blockage; the more willing they are to “own” their own part in things; and the more likely they are to keep working on the area of disagreement until all outstanding matters have been whittled down to nothing.

The lower the degree of commitment, the more likely the lightworker will withdraw from that relationship and search for another.  Issues don’t get resolved. Factionalism increases. The lightwork of financial wayshowing slows down and may even become bogged down. And then  the Company of Heaven looks on another area where humans just haven’t been able to step up to the plate.

And then we ask ourselves later why such-and-such an initiative didn’t go forward. Who then remembers how it broke down? Who has the time to explain?

What do I mean by “breakthrough”? Breakthrough is an event in interpersonal interaction and communication which is the equivalent of an “Aha!” moment or realization in introspective reflection.

What do I mean by “completion”? Completion is a condition reached by a single person or a group of people in which no outstanding issues remain on the matter in question, no further attention is demanded by what was formerly an issue, a condition of peace prevails, and a readiness to move on has been reached.

The willingness to remain with the process of breakthrough and completion builds trust. One doesn’t necessarily have to walk through the whole process with a fellow lightworker more than once to generate the willingness in future to walk through a very much foreshortened version of it.

What militates against breakthrough and completion is contained in the words “resist, resent, revenge.”

All we have left is our vasanas.

When we resist, we withhold important information from the other person. We tie up our power in remembering and managing our secrets. Our awareness shrinks more and more from this pattern of resistance until we end up fossilized, coralized, or petrified.

When we resent, we maintain our barrier against the other person and try to enroll others in ostracizing them. Any separation maintained prevents the opening of the heart and the rising of bliss and the natural state.

The heart doesn’t ask “What kind of separation is this? Oh, that kind. That kind is OK.” No, any separation creates a divided or dualistic mind. And it’s division and dualism we want to leave behind.

Revenge creates enemies and makes separation more or less permanent and final. Revenge not only hurts but it leaves residue that gums up the place and makes progress slow if not impossible. Just look at the Middle East to see what centuries of revenge have done, the quagmire it has created, and the snail’s pace that progress makes.

The other side of the question is that, given the extent of misunderstanding that will arise when we realize that we’re all in different places with financial wayshowing, that so many of us are on guard against control, and that so many others are fearful of losing their abundance,  we’ll need some socially-accepted, ritualized ways of creating closure and coming back together again after a contretemps or difficult discussion.

Ho’oponopono is an example. These amenable social rituals of forgiveness and rejoining will hopefully allow us to create closure with each other and move on quickly instead of having matters fester for years. There’s much work to be done and little time for resting in disagreement and separation.

I have my hands full so I won’t be working on that aspect of things (rituals of rejoining) but, if there are others who can design ways, that’s an identified and predictable need in this time of the introduction of wealth into the lightworker family and equation.

When was the last time you had to go through something stressful or frustrating, only to realize by the end of it that you learned a valuable lesson? If you’ve experienced this, then you aren’t alone. We all go through difficult, stressful and painful things, and most people don’t realize that these experiences are actually teaching them.

If you want to take it even further, you could say that everything we experience is a lesson. Every moment – from the joyful to the sad or stressful – has some kind of teaching for us, and we just need to open up to find the lesson. Openness will help us understand that our difficult experiences are teaching us, and our knowledge will skyrocket pretty quickly when we open up to these constant teachings.

Depending on how you think, you could say there are higher forces that intervene in our lives whenever possible. You could say these forces have been tasked with guiding us through this often difficult life, and they constantly send us messages we can decode, lessons we can learn and experiences that are meant not only to challenge us, but liberate us. You could say these higher forces are passionate about helping us expand our consciousness, and if we could only open up to them, we’d receive a lot more direct assistance and learn our lessons more easily.

These forces want to help us, but we have to be sufficiently open and clear in mind before we can consciously receive their assistance.

Releasing our resistance is empowering. Credit: Blogs.gaiam.com

The best way to increase our openness and finally start learning from life is to release our resistance. Resistance can keep us from having new, challenging experiences that help us learn, grow and elevate our consciousness, and we won’t learn anything significant if we resist every lesson that comes our way. As soon as we stop resisting, everything will seem to change.

Things might actually get easier, and not only will we learn more – we’ll be able to let life be instead of trying to control it. The moment we try to control life is usually the moment things get harder, and if we think about it, we can see how these two things are related.

It’s safe to say that most people don’t want life to be so hard, and the ironic thing is that their need to control their life is usually what makes it so hard in the first place. If we can do away with this unnecessary tendency, we could create the kind of life we want and learn valuable lessons along the way that help us grow.

We won’t stop being challenged when we release our resistance, but our perspective on it will change entirely. We’ll understand that challenges aren’t meant to keep us from making progress, and their actual purpose is to help us reach the next stage. Think of it like a video game. We can’t go to the next level until we learn how to solve our current level’s puzzles, and similarly, we can’t advance to the next stage in our growth until we learn the lessons life is giving us right here, right now.

As long as we leave the overactive ego behind and learn to live from the heart, these puzzles will get a lot easier and more fun.

Ego-centeredness usually causes us to resist life’s countless lessons, and it’s one of the biggest inhibitors on the spiritual path. The ego’s helpful in some ways, but it can severely prevent progress if we let it influence us too much. We can use it without listening to its every command, and it all comes down to the understanding that in our true, silent, empty form, we exist far outside of the mind, the ego, and the physical body. Spirit is our true form, and the word ‘spirit’ doesn’t even do justice to its description.

We can’t learn from life or discover who we truly are if the ego’s still at the wheel, and leaving the ego goes hand-in-hand with releasing our resistance and opening up to life. The two are really one and the same since resistance comes from the ego, and releasing the ego will allow us to release all resistance.

I should also mention that we’ll make the most progress when we’re centered in love, because we’ll no longer be or victims of the ego or our own self-created thought forms. We’ll no longer be susceptible to the ego’s influence when it’s under the control of the heart, and if more people understood the benefits of heart-centeredness, they could discover the key to enjoying life and getting the most out of its lessons.

In my opinion, most spiritual practices pale in comparison to opening the heart. We learn compassion when we’re centered in the heart and willing to help anyone who’s struggling, and the selfless service that can result from our heart-centeredness will teach us even more about our world and the people in it. We’ll obviously learn more about the world by getting out there and helping people than by staying home all the time, but we can help others and learn about the world even if we don’t get out.

Even if we just help our loved ones a little each day, we’ll learn a lot of new things about them, the issues they require help with, and ultimately, ourselves. Our responses to their concerns will teach us about ourselves, and they might learn a thing or two about us as well. If we have trouble finding compassion in a certain situation, for example, we (and they) will learn that we have a blockage in that area for some reason.

Love is everything. Credit: Heartcenteredrebalancing.com

So ultimately, heart-centeredness will teach us how to go with the flow and learn from life, how to help others, and how to learn new things about ourselves. For these reasons (and plenty of others), I think it’s essential to stay in the heart, but we don’t want to try so hard to be heart-centered that we bring our resistance right back up. We want to call on our love in a way that doesn’t require the mind, and like everything else, it’ll get easier with practice.

Life has an abundance of lessons to teach us, and along with rooting ourselves in the heart, releasing our resistance will spare us untold amounts of unnecessary difficulty. Nothing has to bring us down or take us out of our center anymore, and we’re responsible for how we handle life’s lessons. We can learn these lessons with joy and centeredness, or we can angrily resist them and wonder why life seems like an uphill climb.

The hill will smooth itself out as we learn to go with the flow, and the things we learn from there on out will help us more than our resistance ever did. This is reason enough to release it and let life become our teacher, and no matter what we experience each day, we can be sure there’s some kind of lesson in it. We’ll learn a lot if we embrace this mode of thinking, and with heart-centeredness, our knowledge and experience will become infinite.

Something marvelous can happen to you right now! Find out how!

The mood of the wish fulfilled is the high tide which lifts us easily off the bar of the senses where we usually lie stranded.”
~ Neville Goddard

Recently I encountered a story so uplifting I wanted to share it. We all go through periods where we feel down or even depressed. During one such period where I was quite desperate for relief, I came across a very inspiring story in the book The Law and the Promise by Neville Goddard.

There was a woman who was at the end of her rope. At 55 she was out of money, did not have a job and feared looking for one at her age. She had been to several Goddard presentations over a year’s period and was just desperate enough to give his imagination theory a try. She remembered Neville telling of an artist who got to the place of feeling everything was wonderful and thus it became so. She decided that each night while she lay in bed she would focus on the fact that “something marvelous was happening in the moment”, not later but now.  She faithfully did this every night with great joy and enthusiasm. In a period of two months she saw an old friend and had a chat. Soon after that friend showed up at her door to give her a check for $2500, back then this was a lot of money.  She was thrilled. It turned out that this friend had gone to New York and encountered an acquaintance of this lady from 25 years ago. During this period the friend had become very wealthy and wanted to share it with this lady. For the next 2 years she received generous monthly checks. At the end of this story the lady was going to the lawyers office to sign papers to receive these checks for the rest of her life. Her powerful imagination and enthusiastic attitude brought her great security. My challenge to you is to try this exercise or a version you like of it.

One of the benefits of this exercise is that it keeps us right in the here and now where all our power is. All the masters have taught in one form or another that our power is in the now. The past is over and the future is an illusion. We are creating the future as we go and ultimately want to leave it to our divine energy and relax and enjoy the moment. Regret over the past and fear of the future is where our anxiety and unhappiness comes from. As we embrace the now and learn to look for things to feel good about in the moment we learn to cultivate our joy, peace and well-being. Meditation is another wonderful tool for this, when we quiet our minds and get still and know “I  AM”, we come back into our connection to the Divine Mind and all things begin to make sense and flow.

Enjoy the video below as a guide and to give you ideas. I know something marvelous is happening right now for you.

WES ANNAC – The Gift of Life – 6-5-15

Credit: Life-is-everything-us.blogspot.com

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life, do we ever stop to remember how good we have it? Do we ever stop to think about how lucky we are to live relatively normal lives in places that, at the surface at least, seem stable enough to support our work to create a new paradigm?

We’re all in a great position to create the inner and outer changes that need made, and we could go about our work with a sense of gratitude for our existence if we could see that, in a sense, everything is exactly the way it’s meant to be.

We have life, and every day we’re given on this Earth is a blessing that we should not only appreciate, but utilize to the fullest extent.

Only when we can learn to love life can we share our love with the rest of the world, and until we repair everything in our life that keeps us from enjoying or appreciating it, we’ll have trouble creating change in the world.

There are a lot of bad things to be said about this planet, but there are a lot of good things too. There are things here that most people don’t even realize are around, because they never get out and expand their horizons.

Similarly, there are things we can find within that most people have failed to grasp or understand, much less explore with any kind of enthusiasm, and by accepting the opportunity we’ve been given, we can join the ranks of people throughout history who’ve pioneered the exploration of a greater reality.

Credit: Tasteoflifebysabi.wordpress.com

When we can appreciate this existence, which is a blessing whether we realize it or not, we can open the inner doorway to higher vibrations, mystical wonders and an enhanced understanding of the oneness of all of creation.

We’ll understand that we’ve been taking life way too seriously, and all the pressure we’ve put on ourselves is completely unnecessary.

Yes, survival is a serious matter and we’re right to be concerned with sustaining ourselves, but beyond all of that, we’re spiritual beings who’ve been put here to enjoy this world as we climb the spiral back into a higher existence.

The last thing we should be doing is running around like chickens with our heads cut off to support the very system that’s keeping us enslaved.

We aren’t here to try so hard, and we aren’t here to be so stressed out. We’re here to live. We’re here to love, laugh, find joy in the simple things, help people when they need it the most, and use our gifts to make some kind of positive impact in the world, however small or humble.

We’re here to enjoy everything life throws our way, and the great secret to life is that it doesn’t have to be so mean, intimidating or unnecessarily difficult. It doesn’t have to be a constant struggle to survive, and we don’t have to bounce around from dramatic moment to dramatic moment.

When we find peace in our soul and we appreciate our existence, our entire outlook changes and we stop trying so hard to find the things that, as we’re learning, require us to open our minds and ease up on the tension to find. We won’t find anything within if we’re tense or we try too hard, and this includes happiness.

In my view, happiness is a spiritual quality that we have to be in touch with ourselves to find, and it’ll be harder to find if we’re disconnected from ourselves or our higher consciousness.

When we are connected, we’ll learn that self-care is as important as helping others and we aren’t excluded from the people who deserve help. We can help ourselves while we help others, and giving ourselves the freedom to have fun will help us appreciate life even more.

Credit: Quotes-pictures.vidshare.net

The key is to stay open and let life become our teacher, because our creator is in everything and he/she is constantly trying to communicate with us. We need only to open up and listen to our intuitive guidance, and everything will make sense as we joyfully reconnect with a part of ourselves we gave up long ago.

Our appreciation will really increase once this connection is strong, and somewhere along the way, we’ll teach others to appreciate life too. Eventually, the world will be full of world changers who appreciate their existence and are willing to work together to create a fairer, more sustainable way of life.

BRANDON WEST – When Genius Calls – The Six Qualities of an Extraordinary Life – 6-1-15

Brandon West  

When Genius Calls   –   The Six Qualities of an Extraordinary Life

*

It is my intention to achieve and maintain a state of balance, bliss, love, rapture, inspiration, and peace; in essence, to live from a higher state of energy.

I believe that this is the ultimate desire of every human being. Regardless of the specifics of the desires and dreams that an individual may have, who among us does not desire for these qualities to infuse our lives?

Therefore the question isn’t if this is what we want or not, because of course it is. The question is how do we attain these six qualities of an extraordinary life?

Acting On Our Creative Desires
It is common, when working towards personal transformation or spiritual practice in general, to assume that habits are the source of these energies in our lives. And to a degree it is true, because when we act in alignment with our genuine self and calling our energy is realigned with Spirit and we become available for heightened states of awareness/energy.

But I have also found that our actions and our thoughts stem from these heightened states even more powerfully than our thoughts and actions are able to produce them.

Therefore it is important to understand the need for balance between action and stillness; between our habits and between simply surrendering and connecting. For it is precisely our insatiable tendency towards always acting, always needing something to be going on, always needing to be distracted by something, that has created these problems for us in the first place.

What I have seen with myself is that when I focus on writing, which is a passion of mine, I achieve all of these states naturally and organically. But it is not just the act of writing itself which helps me personally access this higher state of energy (higher in relative terms according only to my own experience). Of equal importance is the initial impulse to write and the state of connection that is conducive to allowing for and acting on this desire to write.

In the same way that everyone who has ever established an exercise regimen or a yoga practice can tell you, a large part of the difficulty of the continued practice is not just in the actual practice itself. Because we know that so long as we start we are usually guaranteed to compete the session or routine.

The difficulty is in overcoming the fixed course of our internal dialogue which is resistant to this new practice or habit or way of being, and making that internal shift necessary to act on that desire. In other words, overcoming that mental obstacle that is the only thing separating us from acting on our desires and our calling even.

We all have ideas and desires that are powerful and spontaneous – which are truly inspired – but we delay acting on them simply because the fixed course of our internal dialogue takes us in a different, but entirely routine direction. This occurs because our mental and energetic framework is out of alignment with this infinite awareness and powerful force that exists within us.

So the most direct way to change our lives isn’t necessarily to begin establishing new habits hoping that they will raise our level of consciousness, but rather to realign our energy and our attention to connect to this higher level of consciousness and allow our actions and habits to be a spontaneous expression of the higher consciousness that we are already at.

The key then is to synchronize with this force and to establish an open line of communication between this higher consciousness or higher self as it is sometimes called, and our actions. And it is this state which results in the spontaneous and natural embodiment of bliss, balance, love, rapture, inspiration, and peace – the six qualities of an extraordinary life.

Removing Distractions
Now the best practice that I know of to access this higher consciousness and overcome the fixed course of our internal dialogue is the practice of silence. Not meditation specifically, but simply silence: being silent, sitting quietly, observing, not doing anything, but simply allowing our awareness to expand in this silence and becoming open and available to the descent of Spirit and the impulses of intention. In other words, allowing yourself to maintain a state of silence in order to become inspired to do what you know you desire to do.

The effect that this has is that it disrupts our internal dialogue by bringing it into the realm of our conscious mind. So often we go through our lives on autopilot because we are engaged (distracted) by the routine and regular flow of our daily lives.

The downside however is that once our internal dialogue becomes sub-conscious, then it influences us and guides our actions subconsciously. Now that is not really an issue if you are living your dream and your doing what you love every day. However if you are not, then it is your internal dialogue which is subconsciously determining your thoughts, attitudes, emotions, behaviors, and actions and manifesting more of the same into your life.

But between each and every one of our thoughts is an infinite awareness which has inherent within it all of the six qualities of an extraordinary life which I have outlined above. And it is there, ever present, between each of our thoughts. Yet most of us are not living from that space of unlimited and uplifting energy, and are instead caught up in the current of our internal dialogue and in the drama of our lives which it is ultimately repeating again and again until we break free.

And while meditation is a direct and effective method of shutting off the internal dialogue, or at least interrupting it so that silence can infuse our lives with these qualities for a time (the length of which increases by degrees as you practice), we also need to do this same thing within our lives as well.

We need also to find this silence on another level in order to translate our inspiration and our ideas into our lives and into the world. So in the same way that it is important to interrupt the incessant internal dialogue of our minds in order to create space for creativity, inspiration, and transformation, we also need to do so on another level: the daily routines of our lives.

Our lives and our daily routines are the manifestation of our internal dialogue. So, as hard as it may be to accept, your life is a projection of your internal reality. Therefore just as it is important to create space in our minds for inspiration and such to come through, it is also important to create space in our lives to translate some of that new energy into action so that we can make direct changes to our lives, and so spontaneous inspired action can come through as well.

Overcoming Procrastination
So next time you find yourself procrastinating doing something that you know you want to do, and enjoy doing, try creating space and just being silent. Much of the time when we are procrastinating acting on our inspirations and our heart centered desires, it is because the are not a part of our habitual energetic alignment and corresponding internal dialogue.

Therefore while sitting in front of the T.V. and guiltily knowing that we would rather be [meditating/writing/reading/whatever it is that you like to do], it takes a lot of effort to shift right from that deeply ingrained habit to something else. So instead of trying to do that, simply commit yourself to sitting in silence for a bit.

Instead of turning off the TV to get up and run or meditate or whatever, simply commit to turning off the television and going somewhere quiet to sit for a little bit. This is much less of a shift and a commitment, thus it is easier to do. Yet when you enter into silence and create space in this fashion something truly magical happens.

The longer that you sit for, even if it is just 15 minutes, you will find yourself slowly and naturally actually wanting to do what before seemed like such an enormous task. And all it takes is that little time of silence, because as soon as silence is established and our attention is no longer directed at something which is very distracting, then our energy begins to realign with ourselves – our genuine self and higher self – and our mental dialogue changes accordingly, and the urge to act in alignment with this new and higher energy begins to guide us.

This is all such a natural process, and for this reason it is not only useful for overcoming our mental obstacles to acting upon our passions and our inspiration, it is also essential for discovering our passion and our calling. Because once we get into this space, whatever desires compel us into action are automatically in tune with who we are at a much deeper level.

Creating Space In Your Life
Therefore in your day, apart from your meditation practice, I encourage you to cultivate space. You could start your day off with a silence, or simply take a few minutes in between task to see what you are inspired to do in that moment, or you could use silence to shift into a higher state so that you can pierce the veil between you and higher consciousness as I suggested above. The length of time is irrelevant. Just long enough to center yourself in a place where you feel good, and feel good about what you are doing and how you are using your time.

This space is time when you are not meditating, or reading a book, or doing yoga, or eating, or cooking, or exercising, but simply being. And if you create this space every day, then eventually a time will come when you find yourself spontaneously inspired into action. This is the effect desired and it is guaranteed if you are consistent in your practice of creating space.

The famous musician David Crosby (of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) had a practice where he would leave a space of an hour open every day where he would sit and wait for lyrics to come. He wouldn’t coax them to come, he would just sit and wait. And sometimes a tune would spontaneously appear in his mind and he would write it down, but if it didn’t, then he wasn’t stressed and he would sit patiently in silence all the same and simply wait, ideally without expectations.

Franz Kafka had a similar observation:

“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”

And in this space we become available for this force that is behind us at higher levels of our awareness to come through and create and to express the truest essence of ourselves. And one day we may learn to live from this force in each moment of our lives and have it guide our every action and endeavor, our creativity, our choices, spontaneously and correctly because this guidance is in the most perfect alignment with who we really are and with the universe that it is possible to achieve. Because these actions emanate through us from our higher consciousness which is at the level of universal consciousness itself.

Ultimately we can live from this force in every moment of our lives. For many of us our lives are obstructing this force, but that statement is not exactly true. What is really occurring is that we are obstructing this force working through us, and our minds are simply a reflection of this internal obstruction.

To change this is a simple yet consistent process akin to the practice of yoga. Through yoga we enter poses that unblock energy that has been either trapped or become stagnant within us, and by doing so it increases the flow of energy within our body (by removing these blocks) but also by helping us to align with and connect to universal energy which, over time, begins to flow throughout our bodies and animate us on a much higher frequency, as it is meant to. For we are cosmic, spiritual, universal, or galactic beings. Whichever word resonates most closely with you.

We are the focal point of infinite, universal consciousness, and our bodies and our individuality is a projection of that consciousness. And that consciousness is accessible within us all and is an immeasurable and enormous force that is waiting to act through each of us to accomplish and manifest all that we already desire to be and become.

We only need to awaken to this higher consciousness and come into alignment with it. And through us it will work miracles exactly in alignment with who we knew we were and could become all along, and yet in ways beyond what we could imagine.

So just like in the practice of yoga, all that we need to do is practice creating space in our lives, and then from this space the true expression of ourselves – and much higher energy/consciousness – emanates. And it gradually unblocks the energy that is stagnant in our lives, thereby restructuring our lives, as it guides us (our energy) into new actions, new habits, new thoughts, new emotions, new experiences, new relationships, and possibly even to new paths altogether.

Realizing An Extraordinary Life
About 80% of people dislike what they do every day, and this is why, because they never create the space for their true nature to come through and inspire them to a new course of action and to a new path that is their true calling. And this would spontaneously and irreparably break that daily routine that presently defines them, but which really distorts and imprisons them because it obstructs their true nature and their true purpose.

To a degree we are imprisoned by our actions and our habits because so much of the time they are arbitrarily chosen from our habitual internal dialogue instead of from higher consciousness and a place of inspiration. Or we simply repeat what we did yesterday because that’s is how we learned to live, behave, think, feel and act when we were young, even though it didn’t satisfy us then nor is it bringing us closer towards our dreams. And sometimes we become so stuck in our ways and our routines and there is no outside force that is acting upon us which will dislodge our routines and set us on a new path towards self-realization and self-actualization of the deepest dreams and most enormous power that is lying at wait within each and every one of us.

Creating space, both through meditation and through a literal space in our daily lives, opens us up to just such a force. Except that force is really an internal force, and it is higher consciousness. And when we become available for higher consciousness by creating space and allowing for it, then our actions truly change because instead of working towards bliss, balance, inspiration, exhilaration, and enthusiasm, we live from it.

All our actions are then infused with these energetic/emotional qualities because those qualities where what inspired that action. This is precisely what Wayne Dyer meant when he said:

“There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”

Your thoughts, emotions, and actions determines your life. Of that there is no question. But your habits alone are not the most important thing. Establishing habits for the sake of establishing them and because you think they will get you to where you desire to go is not the most effective course of action and it probably won’t work.

Instead strive to achieve higher consciousness and then create space for this higher consciousness to spontaneously inspire you to a course of action. And when you get in this universal creative flow, all the bonds of your life will be broken and you will find yourself living an extraordinary life and experiencing the six qualities of an extraordinary life at levels you never thought where possible for you.

Just like in yoga however, this is a gradual process. And it is one which will take place over a period of time, therefore it requires your commit to it. Your life will not change in a day. But if you begin to open up to higher consciousness, this new energy will begin to slowly and incrementally infuse your life and help you to express your energy in such a way that unblocks the energetic blocks and stagnant energy in your life to allow energy to flow as it is directed where it needs to be directed for you to grow.

You too can achieve these six qualities of balance, bliss, love, rapture, inspiration and peace. It is your birthright, and it is in your very nature to live from these emotions. Indeed it is your fundamental nature. And to do so, above all other potential habits, establish the daily practice of silence. And when inspiration calls, when genius whispers to you in the space between your thoughts, listen to it.

In the late 60’s and early 70’s, hippie communes and campgrounds were a place of peace and love. Government camping regulations now disallow this kind of living on public lands. Communal living is discouraged from society to the point of zoning and utility restrictions that define usage of public and private property. People are now taking a stance against government restriction and are realizing that we were created to live together in communities where we are all equal and we all have something to contribute, and we should not have to pay extra for things like water, energy, and organic food.

Communal Living in the U.S.

Many people over the last forty-plus years have had dreams of buying property and creating a low cost of living  miniature city that is self sufficient. Everyone would have everything they needed to live comfortably and barter or donation would get you anything you needed. Of one person liked to cook, they would cook for many, and of another person liked to build houses they would build many houses.

Children are meant to grow up with just one or two caregivers. In communal living, children have many surrogate mothers and father figures with aunts, uncles and neighbors. Children need to be surrounded by loving people in their formative years and to be shown how to live in love. Instead, most children today live in broken homes or with parents that argue about money and other societal difficulties.

The Amish grow their own organic food and have the lowest rate of cancer and disease. In correlation they do not vaccinate their children. They have most of what they need right there in their community where everyone grows up learning a trade. However, the Amish still do not have the idea 100% correct, or we already have been living like them and the world would be a different place. It seems there may be some free will lacking in decision making, which still allows for control. However many principles used by the Amish can parallel to sustainable communities without the societal restrictions.

More upscale community living has been proven to work in communities where traditional houses exist. Yards of grass are a thing of the past here, and instead everyone grows a vegetable garden and shares the food with their neighbors. They get together to pre-determine who will grow what.

Communities have come and gone, and thousands of plans have started out with excitement and have vanished in the dust just as quickly. Why have communities mostly failed in their efforts in the past?

Governments have millions of dollars allocated to keeping people from living together. The brilliant plan of economic pressure and credit based allowance of buying houses one cannot afford pulled most of America into the mortgage trap. In succession, both parents in a family began working and now many of these families are without a home due to foreclosure.

Most land zoning restrictions do not allow for campground living. The closest legal thing possible to this is an RV park, which requires about a million dollars to build and requires rent or a daily camping fee as well as utilities like electricity, etc. for long term stay. Government regulatory agencies are always on the lookout for communal living and do everything they can to bust them up. Raids occur in small family communal living with the mask of warrants for illegal marijuana culturing where mass quantities of trucks are brought in. In some cases other organic foods such as strawberries and blueberries are seized even if marijuana was not found.

There have been instances lately where people are being fined and even thrown in jail for not adhering to city restrictions which require that all houses be connected to electrical and/or water hookups, whether they use it or not. A woman in Cape Coral, Florida has been living off the grid with solar power and reclaimed water. She had to go to court and was found not guilty for her use of solar energy and her use of the city sewer for her shower and toilet, however the city then capped off her use of the sewer because of the thousands of dollars past due on her sewer charges that were not paid in her water bill.

If communities do get established, the unseen dark forces begin to hone in on those who unconsciously allow them into their auric field. Erratic behavior in a community from just one individual can disrupt the lives of everyone. Before you know it, everyone is arguing or leaving and the dark has easily completed their task of disharmony.

As we continue to raise our vibrations, we realize that if we would treat others as we would want to be treated ourselves, then harmony can indeed take place. The vibrational level of the planet has risen to a frequency which allows for this kind of living to occur now as people are becoming more responsible for their thoughts and actions. They are realizing that what we do to one person on the planet we do to ourselves, all of humanity, and the planet herself.

The Law of Resonance

As we raise our vibration towards ascension, those who wish to live apart from those who wish to stay in the old third dimensional way of thinking and living will naturally begin separating based on vibrational match due to the Law of Resonance. As we bring more soul essence light into our bodies we may not even be able to communicate with these people because it will seem like we are speaking another language. They will not feel comfortable with us and we will not feel comfortable with them. This may cost you some friends but in the long run you will be much happier without them. Since everyone is on an individual ascension path, respect for another’s timeline is essential.

Thousands of people are driving the movement of awareness toward communal living. These forerunners dedicate their lives to help humanity awaken to the backward way of life that we have been born into. Without these people, some of us would have no idea why we think we have to struggle just to survive, as it has always been that way in this lifetime.

Movers and Shakers in Communal Living

Many people have created organizations that help provide for the needs of those who are having a hard time sustaining food, clothing, and shelter in today’s economic chaos. Fundraising efforts for those who have life threatening illnesses are heart based efforts to help those who might not be able to get through this life without such help. Successful communites have been planned and blueprints are available to follow. The internet continues to serve as a tool on instant sustainable living ideas and projects.

Here are just a few brilliant examples of how today’s leaders create the bridge for humanity to cross in order to find freedom.

Angie Schuyler is setting a great example single-handedly with her idea of Recipro City, a model for a perpetual free flowing, cashless economy based upon the principles of unconditional love and reciprocity. . In her research, Angie traced all of our societal problems back to money, and says that “money is the only thing standing in the way in a world free of war, environmental destruction, poverty, sickness, slavery, homelessness, starvation, and disease”.

For now, Angie runs a small exchange store from her home. Nothing in her store has a price tag on it, and those who inquire about a price get an answer of “whatever you think it is worth” or “whatever you can afford”. Her near future plans include expansion onto some land where she can expand and add rv and camping spots. She envisions her store, chickens and goats, an organic garden free for everyone, a greenhouse, and an indoor aquaponics garden.

Angie’s ultimate goal at this time is to educate people about the true nature of money and the harm it does, and to figure out a way to live without it. According to Angie, we must reclaim our personal value and personal authority so we can free ourselves from the corrupt system.

Angie is also involved in creating fundraising campaigns for people with serious health issues that cause serious financial, physical, and emotional stress upon them. For example, she has organized fundraising for a friend of hers, James Mast, who was born with the hereditary condition PKD. James needs a kidney transplant but does physical labor at his job and thus will not be able to make a living while recovering.

The cost of a surgery like James’ could run around $300,000. Imagine the amount of financial stress medical procedures like this inflict upon families. Often times the hospital bills do not end up getting paid because the person who is ill is the breadwinner of the family and is not able to work. What results is a struggle of survival just to keep the utilities on and put food on the table. Humanity was not created to live this way. If the fear of surviving could be taken away by the nurturing way of life in a community then healing could possibly be twice as fast for the patient.

If everyone cared about their neighbor and offered what they have to help, the world would rapidly change. Angie’s skills include organization and social media skills and she is doing her part to change the way her reality unfolds one person at a time. In a community situation, post hospital care could be shared amongst neighbors while giving family members a respite.

Michael Tellinger’s Ubuntu project is another fine example of spreading knowledge about humanity living in freedom. Michael says:

“Let us move from a money driven society to self governing global communities driven by people and their passion for life and their god-given talents to create a world of abundance for all — free from any restriction or hurdles to achieve what we want to achieve. We live on a planet of abundance. Let us discard the philosophy of scarcity which only benefits the few. Let us reclaim our planet, a world of abundance on all levels of our human endeavor. It is much easier than most will ever imagine. We are the 99 percent — the planet does not belong to the governments, corporations or the banksters. Let us take her back. Join the UBUNTU movement wherever you are and let us share the message of hope and become seeds of consciousness to fill the hearts of everyone with love for all of creation.”

UBUNTU has the following beliefs (from the UBUNTU Facebook page):

1. The people are custodians of the earth

2. The people are responsible for care of the land

3. The people are responsible for care of the water

4. The people are responsible for the care of the forests

5. The people are responsible for the care of rivers and lakes

6. The people are responsible for the care of the gold, the platinum, diamonds, chrome, copper, iron, uranium, tin, aluminum, and all other minerals in the ground

7. The people are the custodians of the air and the airwaves

8. The people are responsible for the care of everything that grows on the land

9. The people are responsible for the care of the beaches, mountains, and skies above

10. The people are the custodians and protectors of the wild animals

11. The Earth is our MOTHER – we are only here because of her – and therefore we must honor her and protect her against harm.

Education is the key to teaching humanity about responsible community living in harmony with Mother Earth. Michael Tellinger is based in South Africa and has witnessed community living there and knows why it is successful. He travels to workshops and conferences and is interviewed on radio shows in order to spread the word to as many people as possible. The passion in his delivery shows that he is doing what he came here to do in this lifetime.

Jacque Fresco is the creator of the Venus Project, which is designed to exist without money.

Aims and goals of the Venus Project are:

1. Realizing the declaration of the world’s resources as being the common heritage of all people.

2. Transcending the artificial boundaries that currently and arbitrarily separate people.

3. Replacing money-based nationalistic economies with a resource-based world economy. 4. Assisting in stabilizing the world’s population through education and voluntary birth control.

5. Reclaiming and restoring the natural environment to the best of our ability.

6. Redesigning cities, transportation systems, agricultural industries, and industrial plants so that they are energy-efficient, clean, and able conveniently to serve the needs of all people.

7. Gradually outgrowing corporate entities and governments (local, national, or supra-national) as means of social management.

8. Sharing and applying new technologies for the benefit of all nations.

Developing and using clean, renewable energy sources.

9. Manufacturing the highest-quality products for the benefit of the world’s people.

10. Requiring environmental-impact studies prior to construction of any mega-projects.

11. Encouraging the widest range of creativity and incentive toward constructive endeavour.

12. Outgrowing nationalism, bigotry, and prejudice through education.

13. Eliminating elitism—technical or otherwise.

14. Arriving at methodologies by careful research rather than random opinions.

15. Enhancing communication in schools so that our language is relevant to the physical conditions of the world.

16. Providing not only the necessities of life, but also offering challenges that stimulate the mind while emphasizing individuality rather than uniformity.

17. Preparing people intellectually and emotionally for the changes and challenges that lie ahead.

The Venus project is one of the most technologically advanced blueprints of community living, and full community designs are available through the website. It is interesting to note that many of the communities are designed to exist over water.

Fernando Vossa is on the core team and advisory board for the Global Breakthrough Energy Movement (GBEM). This short video explains the principles behind the GBEM:

 

Aguano Muyuna is a community in Peru based on a Fernando Vossa GBEM template. This community is a project of Planeto Libre, which has a goal of creating their own global virtual economy that will allow trade via a third dimensional shopping experience on the internet based on organic goods from the region.

Hope Moore (“Hopegirl”) is on her way to the Peru community representing her Fix the World project which includes free energy machines called Quantum Energy Generators (QEG’s). The prototypes have been built and two suppliers are now taking orders to mass produce the cores which are the most important parts for the machines. The schematics for these machines were one of Nikola Tesla’s many patented designs that have been suppressed by the control system, and are available to everyone in the world under an open system of development. Click HERE for the schematics of the QEG that you can build yourself.

Bill Ballard is joining the Peru team to work on 3d printers that can massively replicate parts for Quantum Energy Generators.

Paul Anthony Doucette will soon be on his way to live in Aguano Muyuna, and he has this to say about community living:

“Honestly a move to a community is a big step. It means I am ready to take on that responsibility of being with like hearts/minds. We are striving not only individually for soul development but for unity as a whole on this planet.

That entails reaching into the deepest depths of my own self and seeing all of myself. No more cop outs, excuses and white lies. I have to address aspects of myself that may seem small in a world of separation where I can hide. But in a space of genuine living with people who desire progress, then all is revealed. It is transparency, openness and for a lot of people a kind of vulnerability not welcome.

I embrace this forward momentum and know within/without that this challenge is in fact an opportunity. I am ready to face reality and leave behind the illusion of a world based on white lies we tell ourselves just to make it through another day.

Imagine a world where you are seen for who and what you are in every action you take, in every word you speak, in every thought you think. In every moment acknowledging my actions and taking full responsibility/accountability for all I have done and do.

For anyone willing to take that step, we know within that means a kind of freedom not felt by many. A liberation! I am free to fail, I am free to succeed, I am free to laugh hysterically, free to cry uncontrollably, free to love passionately.

With freedom comes great responsibility. I accept.”

It is clear that with organic food, free energy, humanitarian principles based on love, organizers, and passionate people self sustaining communities are becoming more successful around the world. The U.S. is still burdened by red tape but this will soon become a thing of the past along with artificial borders between states and countries. When humans come into their power and work in service to others they can achieve anything.

The future of community living

In the future, higher resonance of living may not even include barter. It may be more of a take what you need, abundance for everyone. To further this thread of thought, one day soon we will be able to create anything we need from nothing, out of the background energy. There would be no need for trade in this case and the new exchange would be one person teaching another how they created their item, for example an organic lemon tree that also grows limes.

Cities of light

Many people with sixth sense abilities have had clairvoyant visions of what has been called “cities of light”. These are based on how some fifth dimensional beings currently live in ethereal crystal based cities infused with light. There are plans to bring these type of cities to Earth in our reality, and many ethereal cities of light already exist in places like Sedona, AZ. We cannot see them in this reality because they are simply vibrating at a higher frequency. However our bodies are like radios and as we continue to raise our vibration in resonance with Earth’s vibrational frequency, we will be able to tune into these higher levels of our existence at will, like changing the radio station. One cannot enter these cities of light without having a vibrational frequency match, which makes them a safe haven from those who still carry dissonant frequencies of vibration within their bodies. Although humans still have emotion, people who live in these cities operate out of their heart space which keeps them from choosing emotions of fear like anger and jealousy.

Creating the template in the “now” is how communities will manifest into cities of light. Helping our brothers and sisters in need now with love is how we will resonate to the frequency of light. Barriers will begin to break down with government and miracles will open doors to allow us to have more free will choices of living. When the dollar dies, we will have no choice but to rely on community living if trucks stop delivering food to grocery stores.

Until we are on a fifth dimensional vibrational frequency or higher, when we do things like raise money for others and exchanging items on a basis of what we think it is worth, this it creates a template in human consciousness for other people to tap into. And so on, and so on. This is one way we change the world. The future of community living will involve humanitarian practices and technology that will simplify living and allow everyone to do what they enjoy every day.

Do not ever underestimate the power of one small act. Pay attention to the large acts that are setting models for humanity to follow. Build bridges now for humanity to cross; as the saying goes, “Build it and they will come”.

SAFETY – The Council via Ron Head – 5-25-15

Oracles and Healers   –   Ron Head   –   https://oraclesandhealers.wordpress.com/

The Council

We choose today to speak about the subject of safety. And so, naturally, we shall begin by taking a look at fear.

Fear is one of your biggest obstacles. For many it is a constant companion. It is, in the final analysis, a lack of faith in oneself, in one’s future, and a lack of understanding and faith in the Universe itself. Have you not heard throughout your life that your life itself is eternal? No matter where you are, no matter what your faith, even if you think you have no faith, this is something that is a deep part of your being.

The knowing of this deeply within your consciousness is the reason that it is pervasive in all of your world’s religions. And yet you fear.

Of course no one enjoys physical pain. No one enjoys suffering. Everyone wishes to have abundance, joy, freedom. No one wishes to lose these when they experience them. The fear we are speaking of is your ultimate fear. You fear death. You say that you believe there is no death, yet you fear death.

Now, it is true that the body’s mind has a fear reaction to pain and wishes to live, even in its last instant. And it is also true that by far the greatest number of you identify with the body that you inhabit. Even if you have studied and believed great numbers of teachings that say you are not that body, still you identify with it. You feel as if you are inside of that body and that you are not outside of it. For what it may be worth, we tell you that you are outside of it and that it is inside of you.

But we are speaking of safety, of security. How can you find this?

Instead of living in a constant feeling of being in peril of losing your life, what if you could live in constant knowing that nothing could possibly take that life from you? Would thinking it work? Not really. Professing it? You do that. Does it work? Not really. Blind faith? Doesn’t seem to work so well, does it? What produces real trust is experience. Does that seem true? This is, in fact, why those who have had what you call near death experiences are forever changed.

So let’s all run out and have one of those. Please do not try this at home.

Now if you could experience the memories of having lived several times before, if you could experience the memory of being outside of your body and still being here to tell about it, would that help? Of course it would. Isn’t that a great part of what happens to those you call adepts in many of what you call spiritual practices?

And once one experiences these things, a great load is lifted from them. Now they know, you see, that they are not their body. They know that they live with or without it. It is only a creation that allows physical experiences. And they begin to learn that their total experience is far more than physical.

As earth humans have progressed recently there have been many methods of reaching these memories and experiences that have become quite popular. Still, however, it cannot be said that anything like a majority of you are on that path… yet. But we tell you that will change along with everything else. Your memories are returning.

And along with the memories will come that knowing, that certainty, that you are eternal, that this moment is the only time that is. And that is security. That is safety.

We trust we have given you food for thought. Be at peace. Good day.

Robert Piper – Nine Powerful Life Lessons From Studying With A Monk – 5-18-15

Nine Powerful Life Lessons From Studying With A Monk  in5d in 5d in5d.com www.in5d.com http://in5d.com/ body mind soul spirit BodyMindSoulSpirit.com http://bodymindsoulspirit.com/By Robert Piper, Thanks to Body Mind Soul Spirit.

When I was 18 years old, I suffered from anxiety and stomach problems. A compassionate physician and practicing Buddhist referred me to a Taoist monk who specialized in meditation and martial arts. I ended up  healing myself of anxiety and stomach issues by doing meditation, and went on a great  journey of self-discovery.

Here are 9 lessons I learned while studying with a monk:

1. Keep trying until you get it right.

The most important life lesson I learned was trying something three times (maybe even four times) before you stop trying and  move on. Also, this monk taught me that, even after multiple tries, you should work on different angles to approach things that are difficult.

If you keep trying, you’ll eventually get where you’re going.

2. The answer to your question is inside of you.

As part of the original monastery training, a monk didn’t answer direct questions from a student unless it was a well thought-out question. A Chinese proverb says, “Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.”

Some forms of Zen Buddhism use a very similar style of training.  An old saying (by Taoist monks) goes like this: “In making a four corner table, the teacher shows the student how to make one corner. It’s the student’s job to figure out how to make the other three.”

They did this because they were preparing a student to deal effectively with problems in the real world.

I traveled to South Korea one time, and I found it fascinating how much you have to rely on your intuition when you don’t speak the native language of a country. I remember one instance, I had trouble explaining to the cab driver where my hotel was, and he didn’t speak English. So I had to get out of the cab and ask several people until I could find someone to tell the cab driver in Korean how to get to my hotel.

In life, whenever we try new things, we have to go into new places with only a small amount of information. The real world doesn’t give us all the answers. The greatest teacher is inside of us.

3. Real wisdom in life comes from doing something and failing.

Prior to starting meditation, I used to get upset when I’d try something and fail.

I’ve been in sales since I was sixteen. I remember going to work and getting so angry with myself because I didn’t get a sale. If I ever got rejected, I’d get upset with myself, and I’d want to quit my job. But I just keep failing over and over—until I became good at it.

I remember, when I first  started doing meditation, I ran into several problems. For example, at first it was difficult to calm down; but if you stick with it, its gets easier and easier. I tried for only a few minutes, and then every day, I added more time onto my meditation.

When we struggle, we learn about ourselves and what we need to do to become stronger.

4. When you start to do meditation you recognize the egotistical mind.

Everything in the ego’s world is the result of comparing. I  compared myself to other  salesmen and would blame myself because I wasn’t making as much money as them.

When I started doing meditation, I began to build separation from this egoistical mind, which is consistently making these comparisons. A lot of us try something and get rejected, so we give up. Even worse, we blame ourselves for a long time and get depressed. When I started to do meditation, I began to identify my ego and was able to build separation from it.

That’s what happens when we meditate: We separate from the part of ourselves that dwells on comparisons, and start learning to live a life that isn’t driven by our egos.

5. We must be both compassionate and resilient.

The monk wouldn’t meet with me to train unless I called him a minimum of three times. I hated this part. I used to call and call and he would never answer. But this is how life is. How many times do you have to call or email someone to get something done in the real world? It’s usually several times.

Most of us blame ourselves when we try once to do something and fail. At the time, I hated this part of the training, but now I think it was the most important life lesson.

There’s a Taoist proverb that says, “Cotton on the outside, steel on the inside.”

It reminds us to be compassionate, but not weak.

6. Patience is a virtue.

The monk always made me wait—and I dreaded this.

For example, when I got to his house to train, he’d make me wait for a minimum of a half-hour, sometimes longer. We’d go out to dinner on Friday nights and he’d show up at the restaurant an hour late.

He’d tell me to meet him at a particular restaurant at 7:00. I’d get there and find out that he wasn’t there. So I’d usually be sitting in the restaurant by myself fumbling with my phone, acting like I was texting someone, while worrying about what everyone at the restaurant was thinking about me.

Keep in mind, it’s not like I could call him; I don’t think the guy ever turned his cell phone on. Then he’d show up at about 8:15 and act like nothing happened.

His first question was always, “How’s your mother and father?” (Of course in my head I’m thinking, “What do you mean, ‘How’s my mother and father?’ I just waited here for an hour and fifteen minutes.”)

But after a few years of this, it never bothered me; and not only that, it spread to every area of my life. Because of this training, I can honestly say that I very rarely get upset about anything. I never get agitated anymore when I have to wait in a long line or when someone cuts me off on the highway.

Patience is the gift of inner calm.

7. Detach from your ego.

At first, it’s hard to sit at a restaurant by yourself. You’re constantly worrying, thinking that people probably think you’re a loser because you’re sitting by yourself. But the reality is, you will never be happy if you care about what people think you!

Prior to starting meditation, I’d get upset over just about anything. Now, nothing really bothers me. Recently, I was in the airport and there was a several hour delay on my flight. I just used that time to do meditation. Ten years ago, I would have become extremely upset. An airplane delay would have ruined my day.

When you let go of your ego needs, it’s easier to accept and even benefit from whatever comes at you.

8. In Taoism, they say, “No self, No enemy.”

It’s the enemy within that causes all of our fears, worries, and insecurities. If you come to terms with this enemy within, it will impact every area of your life. It’s the identification with the “self/ego” that causes all of life’s problems.

How many times do we not go for something because of fear? Think about all the fears that we have conjured up in our minds that stop us from being truly happy. If you can conquer the enemy within yourself, you won’t have an enemy outside yourself.

9. Happiness  come from within, and also comes from outside.

I learned this from observing the Buddhist Physician I met. He used to do meditation in his office before he would interact with his patients. He was one of the happiest and most compassionate people I’ve ever met.

By  creating happiness inside, he was able to increase that emotional state by spreading it to others.

We must cultivate happiness from within, and work to spread it around to everyone we interact with. The monk used say, “Everyone has a purpose or a mission in life.”

We have to find happiness within, and also find our purpose on the outside.

Wes Annac – Live Life with Passion

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Life isn’t about working day in and day out to please someone else just so we can ‘earn our keep’ and stay financially secure. There’s an underlying theme to life that most people have forgotten, and if we want to understand this theme, we have to open the mind and consider concepts that most of society wouldn’t yet accept.

One of those concepts is that love is the driving force of our existence, and another is that there are higher states of consciousness we can access with meditation and other inner tools that connect us with a reality that’s much realer and more refined than our own.

To explore this greater reality, which exists beyond our surface awareness, all we really have to do is open up to it and let our higher consciousness take the wheel and steer. Our higher consciousness has always guided us, and for the most part, we’ve been unaware of its existence.

One of the most important things we learn as we traverse the spiritual path is that most people have been living life wrong. While survival is an important part of life, we’ve become so enamored with survival that we’ve forgotten why we’re trying to survive in the first place.

The point of survival is to allow ourselves to live, and most people have forgotten how to truly live. Most people stop themselves from having a life that’s worth living, because they’re so caught up with trying to survive every day that they’ve forgotten what it’s like to stop striving and simply exist.

We need to return to simple, unconditional existence. We need to return to a way of life that integrates love and an understanding of the deeper spirituality that reveals itself to those who can open up and consciously receive its presence, and in my opinion, the world will continue to struggle until we can each create this kind of life for ourselves.

We need to create a life that’s worth living, and the best way to do this is to pursue things we enjoy. Pursuing our passions is arguably one of the best ways to get the most out of life, and everything starts to flow when we find our passions and embrace them.

Our love for life grows when we can enjoy our work, but if we stick with some uninspiring job just so we can survive, we’ll miss out on one of the most essential aspects of life: working hard at something we actually want to do.

Our work is meant to help us feel whole, as opposed to providing an income and nothing else. Our work is meant to inspire us and the people it reaches – not turn us into braindead zombies who repeat the same mechanical tasks day in and day out for a paycheck.

Money is the reason so many people work dull, uninspiring jobs, and we have to change our perception of money if we want to liberate ourselves. It isn’t something we’re meant to earn by slaving away, and it can come as a natural result of our passionate work.

While the archetypical ‘starving artist’ is alive and well, I’m comfortable saying that if we find something we truly enjoy and we decide to stick with it, any survival concerns will work themselves out.

Once we decide to pursue our passions, we have to live up to that decision by working hard while remembering to enjoy life. If we find something we really enjoy, we should work as hard as we feel inspired to – even if it means we work ourselves to the bone.

The difference between that work and the kind of work we’d do at a nine-to-five is that we’re actually enjoying ourselves instead of doing something out of a sense of obligation.

Credit: Pastorleonwallace.wordpress.com

Our work will flow like never before when we’re passionate about it, but the key is that we have to wholeheartedly pursue it without looking back. We have to apply ourselves, which can be a lot more challenging than doing whatever mechanical work a traditional job requires.

Most of the ‘jobs’ in this day and age have been designed to keep people intellectually and spiritually numb, and lower class jobs are the worst.

The ruling elite don’t want a society of informed, motivated people who are willing to find their passions and work hard – they want a society of conformist ‘individuals’ who’ll do whatever monkey-minded job is given to them.

This is why our education system is broken, and this is why the vast majority of television we watch seems designed to dumb us down.

It is designed to keep us trapped in a spiritual and intellectual box that keeps us from stepping outside of our boundaries and actually questioning reality, and we have to break this matrix if we want any hope of changing this clearly lost, broken world.

The first step to creating external change is to create change from within, and therefore, the first step to changing the world is changing everything about our lives that no longer works for us, whether it’s related to our work, our relationships or anything else.

We have to make these essential internal changes before we can change anything about the world, and we can only make a positive change by following our dreams and passions. With the power of our higher consciousness, which some people call the ‘higher self’, shifting our lives to match our growing awareness should be relatively simple.

As long as we work hard and remember to have fun, we’ll uplift the rest of the world, which is just starting to awaken to the higher vibes that are permeating everyone (whether they know it or not).

It requires the willingness to find what we want in life and wholeheartedly pursue it, and if we’re willing to contribute to this massive spiritual revolution in whatever way we see fit, the world around us will eventually reflect our dedicated inner changes.

I’m a twenty-one year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.

The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.

I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
