Wisdom with Wes – Higher State of Consciousness – 3-19-15

Snapshot_20140731_2The way into a higher state of consciousness is found with silence, strength, patience and perseverance. The path isn’t always easy, but at the same time, it doesn’t have to be as hard as we’ve made it out to be.

The more we’re willing to either ‘become nothing’ or embrace our creativity to the extent that it merges us with spirit, the easier and more free-flowing life will become.

We have an opportunity to drastically raise our consciousness, thereby raising the consciousness of the rest of the planet, and all we have to do is get out of our own way and utilize the tools we’ve been given to change our lives.

Connecting with our inner Christ gets easier when we consistently clear our mind and keep the connection intact, and we’ll eventually realize that we’ve been connected all along.

We’ve kept ourselves from realizing how connected we are with those higher aspects of our consciousness that inspire us and fill us with color and creative expression, and it’s time to stop hindering ourselves and, instead, explore our consciousness as often as we need to.

If we stay open, we’ll be endowed with a blissful perception and our outlook on life will reflect our inexplicable upliftment. All it takes is the willingness to keep the mind open and get out of our own way, and with persistence, we’ll reach the inevitable goal of full-on enlightenment.

Stay aware!

Wisdom with Wes – Why be Depressed? – 2-7-15 – ( P.S. , We Love You Wes, and Your Work for Humanity)

Snapshot_20140731_2I was bummed out for a long time yesterday (Friday the 5th) over things that have to do with the blog and the gradual decrease in views that seems to have taken place since 2012, and I let my sadness bring me pretty far down.

I had myself convinced I was doing something ‘wrong’ or I wasn’t doing enough to generate interest in the blog or the newsletter (I make my living from both of them), and I worried a lot about the future.

I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep my family afloat if something didn’t change, and I spent the better part of the day victimizing myself and wallowing in depression.

My focus was nowhere near love, awareness or spirituality, and I let some ancient negative feelings come to the surface that I thought I’d already worked through. It took the re-realization that love is infinitely more powerful and important than abundance or recognition to get back to a centered and lively place, and once I finally realized this again, I catapulted back into love without a second thought.

I learned yesterday that if we let ourselves, we can pave over our love and replace it with stress or fear about our survival and our sustainability. It’s easy to let survival concerns replace our growing love and awareness since surviving is so important, but the results are devastating to the spirit.

Not everybody struggles with depressive thoughts or feelings, but some of us do sometimes and it can be hard to climb out of them once we’ve let them in.

I’m learning that we’ll have to be strong and go out of our way to re-reach that loving, centered, active place again if we want any degree of love, happiness or wholeness in this life, and I took something very valuable from my experiences wallowing in my self-created negativity yesterday.

I’ve learned that instead of getting upset about something (like not having enough views on the blog), we can stay positive and work even harder to achieve our short and long term goals.

This blog will eventually pick up more than it already has, and being upset over something that can’t be helped at the moment is as effective as doing nothing at all. Plus, it makes you feel worse!

Accepting the situations we find ourselves in is more helpful than getting upset about them, and with acceptance, unconditional love and sustained activeness, we’ll realize how infinite we really are. And we’ll do it without the self-created negativity that’s hindered us so much in the past.

Will you accept the situations you face and/or try to improve them with a balanced perspective?

Wisdom with Wes – Strength and Selfless Service – 1-2-15

Snapshot_20140731_2It’s easy to feel like life asks too much of us sometimes, but it helps to remember that we’re on a mission to use our centeredness and peace of mind to try to better the lives of others.

As difficult as it can be, we’re here to see through our own needs and into the needs of others.

We don’t have to make ourselves miserable trying to keep other people happy, but we can stop focusing so much on ourselves and remember to take other them into consideration.

If we can lovingly and unconditionally serve others and remember to keep things interesting for ourselves, we’ll be impressed at how positively we impact everyone’s life. We’ll enjoy life more because we’ll have done a lot of good, and things will obviously be better for the people we help.

Balance requires the ability not to impulsively flood ourselves with emotion when the cards seem stacked against us, and even when we think we’ve found balance, something can come along and take our inner peace right back from us. External situations can only zap our light if we let them, however so we’ll have to stay diligent when we face situations we just don’t think we can handle.

Along with remembering that we’re here to serve others, diligence in the face of difficulty will help everything flow more smoothly.

Will you stay strong and balanced today?

Wisdom with Wes – An Active Weekend – 1-31-15

Snapshot_20140731_2We can use the weekend as a time to rest and let ourselves be a little lazy, or we can take it as an opportunity to be even more active and enthusiastic than usual.

It’s easy to give in to the temptation to rest when the weekend comes around, but it might be more worth our time and energy to increase our activity.

Some people want to rest on the weekend because it gives them a break from the oppressive or mundane realities they constantly face during the week, and they enjoy having the freedom to do whatever they want. There’s nothing wrong with this greater freedom, and in fact, it’s something we all deserve to enjoy – not just on the weekend, but all the time.

With greater freedom can come greater responsibility, however, and to get the most out of life (and, specifically, our weekends), we might want to continue to be active, even when resting sounds like a better option.

We’re learning about the benefits of staying active and keeping as positive of an attitude as we can no matter what we face, and staying active during the weekend might increase our vitality throughout the week.

If we break out of our shell and go out of our way to be active on the weekend, it might give us more incentive to reclaim our freedom and stay active throughout the week. Like all things, we have the choice as to how we want to act, and no greater force can make us choose a specific path.

Everything’s up to us, but certain choices will help us feel better in the long run. I think staying active is definitely one of those choices, and we can embrace it if we feel motivated enough. If we do, we might make life more fulfilling than it was when we were comfortable being lazy.

What will you do this weekend?

Wisdom with Wes – Unconditional Acceptance – 1-24-15

Snapshot_20140731_2It can be hard to embrace certain spiritual concepts if we’re worried we won’t be accepted by others, but we don’t need to worry about it anymore.

If people are unwilling to accept us for the things we believe, it says more about them than us and we might be best to let them keep their distance.

In order to truly empower ourselves, we’ll want to find people who love and support us no matter what we believe – not people who’ll only accept us if we think the way they do.

Close-mindedness is one of the biggest obstacles on the spiritual path, and even if it means turning away from relationships with people who don’t accept us for our way of thinking, it might be worth it in the end.

We’ll eventually find people who are willing to love and support us no matter what we believe, and those are the best kinds of relationships that we’ll want to cherish the most. Similarly, we’ll want to make sure we accept others for who they are instead of trying to mold them into who we want them to be.

Will you give (and seek) unconditional acceptance today?

Wisdom with Wes – Creative Benefits of Exercise – 1-16-15

Snapshot_20140731_2I’m sure I’ve written a lot about exercise, and that’s because it’s a great way to keep the blood pumping and the spirit flowing. If we ever have trouble with our creativity, exercise (or something else that gets us moving and excited) might be the answer.

We’re all different, and what works for one might not work for another, but I’ve noticed that getting some exercise before sitting down to write works wonders on the creative flow.

Even though it isn’t the sole answer and we might have creative trouble even if we do it, it seems to help things flow more easily and smoothly. Everything is easier when we’re in an uplifted frame of mind, and this is why we’re continuously encouraged to get up! instead of staying down.

I think we’d all benefit from staying active, and I’ve noticed that laziness tends to deplete my creative flow and my willingness to contribute. We always hear about the benefits of being active, but actually experiencing them is a whole other story.

It feels great to stay active and uplifted, and I plan to stay as active as I can in hopes that it continues to uplift me and, hopefully, all of you who read these articles. I can’t recommend exercise or another uplifting activity enough, and the difference between an active, enthusiastic perspective and a lazy, dull one is like night and day.

The latter seems destructive to the spiritual path, whereas the former seems to encourage creativity and spiritual growth.

Exercise seems to lighten us up and help us sufficiently express ourselves, and together with an open mind, it’ll show us the way back into our own consciousness, where so many perceptual wonders are waiting.

Will you uplift yourself today?

Wisdom With Wes – Transcend Limitation – 12-29-14

Snapshot_20140731_2I’ll go along with the theme of today’s Oversoul Teachings message and encourage us to transcend our self-created yet illusory limits.

We don’t have to keep ourselves from doing the spiritually inspired things we’ve come to earth to do anymore, but transcending our limits will require some serious effort.

Breaking out of our shell and trying new things can be hard, but we’ll find that it was all worth it when we accomplish things we never expected to.

It seems like you have to work hard to achieve anything notable in this world, and we might have to push ourselves a little if we want to transcend or even expand our limits.

We might have to face challenges and experiences we’d rather hide from, but we’ll know in the end that they enabled us to step into a more refined, authentic version of ourselves. This ‘version’ of ourselves is very spiritually aware, and yet, it’s rooted to the earth in a true display of balance and mastery.

We can embody the archetype of the progressive spiritual seeker, but it might require the willingness to continuously challenge ourselves. We’ll meet a lot of difficulty at first, but in the end, we’ll have accomplished more than we ‘failed’ at.

Will you confront your limitations today?

Wisdom With Wes – More on Forgiving the Corrupt Elite – 12-28-14

Snapshot_20140731_2(Note: I’ve written about forgiving the elite in previous columns, but I felt like it needed to be said again.)

I write a lot about the ‘cabal’; the ‘elite’; the ‘planetary controllers’; whatever you want to call them, and I always try to remind people that even though they’re corrupt and it’s time for their ‘reign’ to end, they’re still us in a different form.

It’s easy (and almost preferable) to rebel against them for the awful things they continue to do, but in doing so, we fail to recognize the inherent oneness of every conscious being, which includes them.

We erect a border between our greater understanding and that part of us that just wants to rebel, and we keep ourselves from spiritually evolving or cultivating the inner peace that’ll bring the world together with ease.

We hurt ourselves (and, subsequently, the rest of the world) when we try to fight the elite, and little do we know that our rebellion plays right into their hands. We give them exactly what they want, because we maintain a divided condition within that feeds the negativity that enables them to get away with their crimes.

Sending love to the elite is a great way to ‘fight’ them, however ‘new agey’ it sounds, and in time, more seekers will realize that the best way to create peace and unity is to stop fighting. It sounds simple, but you’d be surprised at how hard it can be – even for the conscious community.

Will you express love and forgiveness today?

Wisdom With Wes – Physical and Spiritual Balance – 12-16-14

Snapshot_20140731_2What comes to mind when you think about serving spirit and contributing to our conscious revolution? Do you imagine yourself working away tirelessly to help raise awareness, or doing something that’s rooted more in the physical and spiritual realms?

Steve Beckow’s article today about Lightworkers and Lightholders led me to consider that our work should be done in conjunction with our exploration of our consciousness.

If we want to contribute to our collective spiritual evolution with an added perceptual boost, we might want to embrace meditation and similar practices that root us in the spiritual realms.

At the same time, let’s do work we enjoy; work that utilizes our creativity and spirituality, and respectfully step away from the things that seem to hold us back or hinder our greater perception.

One of the reasons we came here is to work hard, but if the hard work starts to become a drag, we might want to decrease it and/or invite spirit into our lives to a greater degree than we have been.

I don’t know about any of you, but I’m ready to embrace consistent meditation and work that aligns me with spirit and helps me find a higher vibration. The world would change quickly if everyone embraced meditation and the work that comes with bringing our civilization into the light, and we can make some changes now by practicing hard work in conjunction with our spiritual exploration.

Will you explore your consciousness today?

Wisdom With Wes – Simplicity Helps 12-15-14

Snapshot_20140731_2Simplicity will take us further than complication every has, and we don’t always have to say a lot to communicate a lot.

I don’t think enough people understand how helpful simplicity can be, and instead of endlessly complicating our lives, we can release the stress and pressure and learn to flow with life.

Opening the mind helps us flow more easily, but we can’t open it if it’s crammed with complicated thoughts or circumstances. Especially at this time of the year, de-stressing and embracing a simplistic lifestyle will get us far.

Will you embrace simplicity today?

Wisdom with Wes – Staying Strong

Snapshot_20140731_2Everything is perfect as it is, now matter how hard that dissenting part of us will try to convince us otherwise.

We don’t want to ignore the bad things that are happening all around us, but they don’t have to dampen our outlook on life or keep us from seeing that this world can be as heavenly as it is hellish.

Heaven and hell both exist here, and we can feed either reality. We have a constant choice as to how we want to feel about life, and even when we face the most difficult and seemingly inescapable circumstances, we can still retain our center and prevail.

Sometimes, our positive outlook on life will be tested. We’ll be challenged in extraordinary and unexpected ways, and our ability to remain strong will be more important than it ever was. If we can see our way through the most difficult challenges, the smaller ones won’t affect us like they once did.

Life becomes easier when we remain strong through the heaviest things it throws at us, because we gain valuable experience that we can use in future situations when our strength is tested.

We have an unprecedented ability to keep our center no matter what we face, and we might find in the time ahead that we need to call on it if more chaos is required before this world can find the equality and stability it seeks.

As long as we’re strong within, nothing will keep us down.

Do you choose awareness and strength today?

Wisdom with Wes – Life is our Teacher – 12-4-14

Snapshot_20140731_2There are plenty of spiritual teachers we can turn to for advice, but at the end of the day, we’re our best teachers.

Or maybe I should say that life’s the best teacher. No matter what we learn from someone else, our experiences will always teach us more about ourselves and our spiritual evolution.

There are plenty of people we can follow nowadays for advice and guidance related to spirituality or general wellness, but their advice only goes so far if we aren’t willing to take a look around us and learn from what we see.

Every moment presents an opportunity to grow, and the more open we are, the more we’ll grow and the easier life will become.

We’ll eventually find that we don’t require a teacher or someone to look up to anymore, because life will keep us plenty busy. As long as we can learn to teach ourselves while letting life teach us some important lessons, we won’t require an external teacher to help us get where we want to go.

There’s nothing wrong with having a ‘guru’ to lok up to, but it becomes unnecessary when we realize that life is the guru. Life is our teacher, so let’s allow it to teach us and be thankful for the lessons we learn in every moment.

What will you learn from life today?

Wisdom with Wes – Creative Passion – 11-29-14

Snapshot_20140731_2In our short time on earth, we’ll want to pursue things we’re passionate about. We don’t want to keep ourselves from pursuing our greatest passions; the things that excite and inspire us the most, because we’ll block ourselves from the happiness and wholeness we strive to find.

Passion and excitement will enhance our creativity more than anything else, and we don’t want to force ourselves into a narrow creative box or fail to pursue the things we really enjoy.

We’re on this beautiful world to uplift the collective vibration, and I think the best way to do this is to do what we enjoy. It sounds simple, but a lot of people have had trouble with it in the past. Let’s be spiritual pioneers and break this trend, because if we don’t, the rest of the world will continue to have trouble when the time comes for our revolution to pick up speed.

Do you choose to pursue your passions today?

Wisdom with Wes – Raising our Vibration with Creativity – 11-28-14

Snapshot_20140731_2

Wes Annac

No matter what we do that’s intended to uplift others, we’ll want to make sure we do it with love.

The purpose of our existence here on earth is to use our creativity or anything else that inspires us to raise the collective vibration, and I think the best way to do this is to incorporate love and centeredness into everything we do.

The ego strives to control the outcome of everything. I won’t be the first to say that if we’re rooted in the ego, we’ll strive to control our fate in a way that doesn’t respect our natural manifestation abilities or the importance of letting our future take shape while still defining it for ourselves without being overbearing.

We’re here to use whatever inspires us to help awaken and uplift people, and I think we should keep this in mind when we strive to produce something we want to be ‘good’.

The ego’s comfortable expressing irrational judgments and expectations, especially when it comes to our creative work, so we’ll want to detach and let whatever creativity comes out of us flow through with as little influence from the ego or the mind in general as possible.

I’ve said plenty of times that the mind’s a great thing – we just have to know how to use it properly and opening it is one of the best ways to use it, in my opinion. Other people have said that ‘the mind only works when it’s open’ and with everything we do, I think we’ll want to remember to incorporate love and open-mindedness.

The collective vibration will raise when we can use our creativity to help ourselves and everyone else find a higher state of consciousness, and when we look back on this wild earthly ride, we’ll be glad we enjoyed our creativity as opposed to endlessly striving to ‘perfect’ it.

How will you approach your creativity today?

Wes Annac – Wisdom With Wes – Love, Joy, Service – 11-24-14

Snapshot_20140731_2This life is about love, joy, and freely serving others. Our prime purpose in being on earth is to love ourselves, the people around us, and the planet as a whole. As easy as this seems, a lot of people have complicated it and, in doing so, made it more difficult for humanity to open up to the idea that simple love, joy and service are all we really need.

A lot needs done to change the broken and defunct aspects of this world that could easily stop us from creating a positive future, but there are greater spiritual forces at work to awaken the planet to the injustices that are repeatedly perpetrated right under our noses.

These spiritual forces want to educate us about their existence and subsequently increase our perception of the tyranny that rages here on earth, and when we become aware, we can hold the forces who strive to hurt this planet accountable before ultimately forgiving them.

The people will reassume the power to make important decisions when we’re all awake and aware of the spiritual nature of our reality and the things that have been done to keep us oppressed, and until this time comes, the best thing we can do is embody the love, joy, and selfless service we’ll practice in our quickly forming new earth.

The time has come for a genuine, collective spiritual and political awakening to take place, and when the dam finally bursts, we can start contributing without jumping too heavily into the fray.

We’ll want to retain balance, which is why living in love and simplicity is so important right now.

How do you choose to enjoy your life today?

Wisdom With Wes – Ascension, Respecting the Beliefs of Others – 11-19-14

Snapshot_20140731_2

Wes Annac

There’s something I feel like I have to say, even if it sets me apart from some of the more ‘progressive’ seekers who don’t follow any particular movement or belief system.

What I have to say is that the ascension movement resonates a lot with me.

I wholeheartedly believe this planet’s experiencing a gradual (yet direct) evolution into a higher state of consciousness, and yes, I believe we’re being assisted in this evolution by legions of ‘guides’, ‘angels’, ‘higher-dimensional entities’, whatever you want to call them.

I think we can each contribute to the restoration of consciousness that’ll eventually lead to our collective ascension, and the concept of ascension has inspired me to work very hard to help others find the light or gain a little bit of awareness.

I don’t think we should judge the various movements and beliefs that are out there, and as long as we remember that they all lead back to love and keep our distance from them all while embracing the ones that resonate with us to a degree, then we’re on the right track.

Nobody would have the right to claim the beliefs that cause us to work so hard in the name of the light are ‘false’, because we’re all doing the best we can with the beliefs that resonate with us.

At the end of the day, love and unity are the most important things to empower, and we can share them regardless of what we respectively believe. I embrace the ascension movement, but this doesn’t stop me from listening to constructive criticism about it or connecting with other seekers who don’t believe in it as much.

As long as we have love and unity, nothing else matters.

Wisdom With Wes – Ego Absence – 11-6-14

Snapshot_20140731_2Ego absence is much easier said than done, but we’ll want to embrace it if we want to help change anything about this planet.

Even though I (and plenty of others) believe we’re being assisted by various higher-dimensional souls who want to help us spiritually evolve, we’re the ones who are responsible for our individual and collective evolution and it all starts with the decision not to feed the ego any longer.

The more we feed the ego, the more we’ll enable our planet’s broken condition to continue. If we want to change the world, we’ll have to embrace the difficult and monumental task of transcending the ego and its constant wants/desires and open our hearts to the harmony and bliss that result.

Not only we, but the people around is will notice a potent change in our attitude and the way we live our lives in general. With egoless-ness and an open, brimming heart, changing this planet will be a breeze.

Wisdom With Wes – All Work and No Play – 10-28-14

Snapshot_20140731_2I think it’s important to work hard and play just as hard.

We want to contribute something pure and significant while we’re on earth, but we don’t want to work so hard that we stop ourselves from enjoying our lives or, most importantly, spending time with the ones who mean the most to us.

We don’t want to abandon our family in the name of contributing to our ascension, and if we want to raise the collective vibration, we’ll want everyone – especially those closet to us – to feel welcomed and loved.

Let’s remember to contribute as purely as we can to our ongoing spiritual revolution, and let’s keep in mind that our work will be muddied if we can’t have fun and enjoy ourselves along the way. Let’s work hard and play hard in this new paradigm, and let’s make sure everyone feels included.

Wisdom With Wes – Shining Our Light – 10-18-14

Snapshot_20140731_2We’re on this planet to find a higher vibration and help the people around us do the same, and we’re also here to use our spiritual perception to make a needed change to our clearly broken society.

Even though society seems whole in a lot of ways, all it takes is opening up to the real situation to see that there’s a lot we aren’t being told and a lot that’s being done in the name of greed, destruction and money.

We’re here to help change all of this, and one of the best ways we can do this is to use the budding spiritual perception we’ve come to earth with to shine our light on everything that needs healed.

We can heal this planet, but we have to believe in ourselves and our divinely ordained abilities as we enthusiastically step up to restore our world to its former utopian glory.

We have a constant opportunity to let our light shine, and when we do, we’ll uplift the collective consciousness and make it easier for everyone else to find the inner perception that’s leading us to want to make a change.
