Internal Shoot-Out: Unsticking Your Timeline

Feeling stuck on a timeline you don’t want to be on?  Find out why.

This is the first of a series of Shoot-Outs—the rapid firing of questions to the Self–to facilitate recognition of unconscious limiting behavioral patterns which may be keeping you on an undesired timeline.

One day this weekend, sit with your morning beverage and write down some things you habitually do.

Here are some examples:

  • Writing in a journal
  • Exercise
  • Checking social media
  • Watching television
  • Organizing things
  • Shopping

For each element in your routine, fire off the following questions in your head.  Write down the answers! It frees up mind space:

  • Who are you doing it for?
  • Is it bringing you closer to what you want, away from what you want, or nowhere?
  • What do you expect to get from it?
  • What would happen if you didn’t do it?
  • Do you really want to be doing this, or do you feel like you’re supposed to?

And the grand finale:

  • What’s running in the background while you’re doing it?  Is it excitement? Boredom? Desperation?

 

Sit. Feel. Observe.

This pause after asking these questions will bring you to the WHY of what you’re doing.

 

When you get to the WHY, you are at a conscious Point of Choice.

Do you want to keep doing this thing, or do something else? Remember that what served you before, when you were a different person, may not work for you now.  After all, you no longer need to hold your mother’s hand anymore when you cross the street, do you? Some activities don’t reflect the new You that you have become.

Remember, you are a new person every moment, with every choice you make.

By recognizing what you’ve actually been choosing for yourself, and WHY, you can evaluate whether or not these repetitive actions are bringing you closer to what you want, or further away.

You may find yourself getting rid of routines that make no sense. 

This will never feel like sacrifice.  Rather, it will be more of a release…and hopefully with an acknowledgment of thanks for the experience, as fun (or not fun) as it was.

You are a sovereign being, and you get to choose what you think about…and how you interact with anyone or anything.  Your choices form into the physical reality that you see and experience around you.  Why not make all of them conscious ones? You have always had that power.

 

May your soul’s every wish be fulfilled.  Love to you.

Are You Man Enough? Why?

It’s clear that something has gone terribly wrong with men striving to be Man Enough.

We see evidence of this everywhere, and it begs the question: What can men do about it?
This article offers men a blueprint for cleansing themselves from the pressures of toxic masculinity and forging a path to self-actualization.

Choose Your Social Circle

One noteworthy step in my spiritual progression occurred when I decided to clean out my social closet. This was prompted by one simple piece of advice that came from a fellow man I met online. To paraphrase his main point:
“When you don’t want to take part in a social norm, the greatest and only power you have is to walk away. And if you’re afraid of being alone, you don’t even have that.”
When he said this, I suddenly realized how much power could be gained from overcoming my fear of being cut off or isolated from others.
From that moment on, I raised the bar for the kind of people I wanted to surround myself with, favoring inspiring books over fake friends. You can do the same.

Stop Being a Hero

As men, we desire a sense of certainty about how we understand the world and choose to navigate through it. The cliché of men not wanting to ask for directions comes from our instinct to lead others.
Programmed to view the role of “follower” as emasculating, we all grab frantically at the helm of humanity, failing to synchronize with each other or our female counterparts.
We do this because making a change and taking directions from others means admitting that we don’t have all the answers and need others to help us find our way. It also means forgiving ourselves for being imperfect.
If we truly want to be of service, we need to start by giving ourselves some slack and listening to others.

Takeaways

If you want to make a lasting change, it’s important that you don’t just leave this article without setting an intention. Start your transformation by putting pen to paper, writing down your own takeaways from the following points:

If you feel like people in your social circle are negative and putting pressure on you to conform, start letting them go. Letting go of them is how you will begin to let go of who you think you are.

Recognize that it’s perfectly acceptable not to know who you are or who you want to be. Not knowing is a state of emptiness that empowers you with the receptive capacity to discover and choose who you want to be.

Find your heroes and follow them. These are people you aspire to emulate and connect with. It doesn’t matter if you connect directly with them. What matters is that you listen to them. By doing this, you’re forging a relationship with those heroes and using their example as a model to live by.

I’m Done With That! So Why is It Still Showing Up?

You change realities every time you make a new choice.

Little choices, and big choices.  All choices.

With each decision you make, you transform into a completely new person; and you move to another version of Earth that supports the revised “You.”  Maybe you faced a fear, or got rid of an annoying habit. Maybe you withheld judgment when you normally would have cast dagger eyes at another’s behavior.

Despite your being on a new version of Earth, it might not look all that different to you, at first glance. With your new attitude and all, you’ll expect more of the things you desire to start showing up in your physical world…and quickly.  You have made a big change!

But instead, you could see the same old things you’ve been seeing, and it’s easy to conclude that the Law of Attraction only works some of the time.  Or for everyone except for you.  Or…never…if you sink down to the emotional basement and wallow.

So why do indications of the old “You” still show up even though you’ve made changes?

Let’s take an imaginary walk through a forest, along a nice flat path.  You are enjoying the nature around you, maybe touching a tree here and there, surrounded by chirping birds.  You’re in appreciation and it’s a good place.

Walk a little further, and you see something up ahead.  It’s dull and metal, an eyesore.  As you walk closer, you see it’s an empty soda can, thrown in the foliage alongside your serene path.

Maybe your tranquility comes to a halt, and your mind turns to thoughts that are not so positive.  “Who would do that?” “Why would someone be so careless as to leave this here?” “Humans are hopeless.”

I’ve been there, and I know how good vibes can come to a halt when faced with something we find incomprehensible.

Yet nothing in your purview is random. Even evidence of behavior you don’t exhibit.

You may not be a person that throws cans on the ground. Yet I’m guessing that sometime, somewhere, you threw something on the ground and didn’t care to pick it up.  If you can honestly say you have never done this (put a “Saint” in front of your name), then I can guarantee that you know someone who has.  It has been a part of your reality at some point in time.

The appearance of an object like this, which I call fallout, is a glimpse of another’s reality.  Since we’re all connected and sharing a collective landscape, we “bump up against each other” every once in a while due to previous associations. It’s leftover evidence of a previous version of “You.”

But why, if we’re no longer choosing that reality?

You’re seeing that can there, to gauge how you’ll respond to seeing it.

So, you have choices:

  • To remember your can-throwing days, and concede that people change if they want to. You did!
  • To judge the can-thrower as an un-evolved troglodyte.
  • To observe your feelings about the event with neutrality.

Neutrality is, of course, the least resistant path.  And how you respond to this event is what determines which reality you will choose next.  A compassionate or neutral choice, and you’ll aim yourself towards a timeline in which you’ll see fewer and fewer indications of such past versions of “You.”

If there’s outrage, then you’ve shown the Universe that you choose to continue taking part in that reality and “more cans will you see,” in Yoda terms.

 

When a storm ends, it takes a while for the dust to settle.

In the meantime, you’ll see such things so you can confirm that they are not what you prefer anymore.  By continuing to focus on what you do want to experience (tree touching, birds singing), then the fallout will stop appearing as you build momentum towards the more preferred reality.

There are a whole lot of versions of “You” out there.  So when something you’re “finished with” reappears, remember that there are others still partaking in a reality you’ve experienced.  Even though you left that timeline, it still continues on—in both directions—without you.  It’s your choice whether or not you opt to go back and visit.

The Kitchen Spider: Guidance From The Web

When I was a little girl, a gentle being with large eyes told me that I would never be without a spider.

This statement didn’t fit in anywhere until early adulthood, after I’d had a few changes of residence under my belt.  The being was right; everywhere I live, a spider sets up shop in my kitchen. They are usually black widows, which wield the fiercest symbolism among all of the fearsome options in the spider kingdom.

My current kitchen spider has been with me for two years. She lives beneath the floor lamp that lights my artistic workspace, and after all this time, we’ve come to know each other well.

 

Why do spiders show up?

Bugs have historically been a source of terror for humans. Scapegoats, in my opinion, along with the snakes…they’ve been given a bad rap.  Think about it: When was the last time one lunged out of the corner to attack you?

Yet those who view the world as a dangerous place will be the first to squash them when they appear in spaces that we call “our own.”

Any sense of invasion is a fallacy, of course; for if a spider shows up in your environment, it is just as valid a part of your creation as the lamp it lives beneath. You may love it or hate it, or something in between, but it’s you who put it there.

How does squashing the things that you fear work for you?

 

Here’s a common response when I discuss my arachnid friend:

“But it’s just a spider.”

Everything you see, hear, feel and experience is a part of you. If you have labeled something as “Just a…. (anything),” then you have concluded that your existence is more valuable than someone else’s.

Expect this to come back to you.

 

So before you pull out the shoe, observe the spider from another level.

Bend down and look at it.  It’s safe…most of them don’t jump…(wink).

Ask yourself some questions:

Why is it there? What do spiders represent for me? How do I feel about them being in my space?

Such reflections will become standard for you as you awaken, for you’ll want to consciously apply your lessons to multiple levels. You’ll be addressing the creepiness enforced by social conditioning/Hollywood movies (physical level); exploring appropriate symbolism specific to you (emotional level); and taking responsibility for what shows up in your life (creational level).

 

Here are some common spiritual themes that may invoke a spider in your world:

The value of life in all forms. Does it deserve to live?
The right to live in a specific space. Is it impinging on my territory?
Victimhood. Is it out to kill me?
Powerlessness. What if it bites me while I’m sleeping?

My guides call the spiders “Veterans.”  After all, they lose everything each time the cleaning lady makes a good sweep (which apparently mine doesn’t), and they immediately set up home again when the coast is clear.  A representation of your own inherent qualities, if you choose to activate them.

 

Establishing a relationship with your kitchen spider

Consider how our indigenous cultures live in unison with the nature around them. Earth offers many examples of such symbiotic relationships.  If they can do it, then we all can do it.

…and realize that you may come to like the little bugger. What once was an irrational fear turns to curiosity, and then to fondness, and then to its own kind of love.

Even if spiders still scare you, adopting a “you don’t bother me, and I won’t bother you” attitude will yield some very positive results.  See what happens when you do this.  If you have children, introduce them to the spider, and discuss it with a sense of wonder rather than fear. The animal kingdom is quite receptive to a welcome environment, and respect is returned in kind.  If fear for your child’s safety overpowers everything else, then move the spider to a jar for rehoming outside.  This demonstrates respect for the well-being of everyone involved, while illuminating your current belief systems along the way.  Incidentally, my grown son has a kitchen spider of his own.

Your attention to repairing relationships with “Others That Scare You” sends out a powerful message to the Universe.  It shows your dedication to transformation for a more unified co-existence.  This intention calls immense power to you, for use in spinning your own Web of Creation…one based in integrity and respect for those who share your world.

All this…from “just a spider.”

Bleedthrough:  Your Collision with Parallel Timelines

Your evolutionary path is a series of moments, experienced.

As you heal, the moments get rosier as the things you want start coming your way.

And then, just when things are going well, a wrench in the machine! In comes a tidal wave of destruction—in the form of something that you had always feared would happen, happening.

There it is, staring you in the face.  And your whole life must come to a halt to take care of it.

This happened recently when I received an email from my credit card provider: “Your password has been changed.” 

But it wasn’t me that changed it. In fact, I hadn’t logged into that account for months.  It’s been on my list for a year to log in and update my profile; but I continually ignored my intention and did other things instead.

This propelled me into crisis mode!  How many other accounts use that same password?  And why am I still using the same password on multiple accounts?  And has my email been hacked too?  And who ARE these people? And what have they gotten from me?

Here I am, a victim once again. Just when I thought I was over that stuff, something like this happens to show me that I’m not…

…But it really didn’t happen at all.

 

Once I logged on to check, there was no evidence of a password change request. No activity, no bad guys stealing my identity.  “Welcome back, Kimberly! It’s good to see you again.”  The activity log was squeaky clean.

Yet I have an email right here, telling me it was changed!  So which is the correct reality?  Which information should I believe?

 

The Universe has a purpose for such things.  Remember: nothing is random.

What I experienced was a bleedthrough.

 

Bleedthroughs, also called holographic injections, are inserted into your reality to test your evolutionary progress.

You’re given a sneak peak of a parallel timeline—one that is a result of different choices—and you get to experience it as if it’s real.

Now this notion isn’t new;  Ebenezer Scrooge had a wild ride one Christmas Eve, if you recall.   He learned a lot about himself over those few hours of flying around London, and when he woke up from his apparent dream, he was a changed man.

He was given the opportunity, through foreshadowing of some pretty gnarly outcomes, to course-correct his waking life.  You do this too, and often.

 

Let’s review the mechanics of creation:

  • You are energy, creating from your imagination.
  • Your thoughts form your reality.  This includes unconscious thoughts, as well as conscious ones.
  • Any area in which blocked energy remains, will resurface in the form of an event for you to process.

 

Since humans reside mostly in the physical and are taught to validate occurrences with our physical senses, we consider what we see with our eyes as undeniable truth.

 

A bleedthrough is a collision with a parallel timeline; one on which those involved made different choices, leading to different outcomes.  It is truth, but it might not be one you’d like to experience; you’re given the opportunity to try it on for size. The corporeal mind and body will react to a bleedthrough exactly as if it were occurring in your conscious reality.

But why? And who is doing this to you?

You are.   But you have good intentions in doing so, and it’s because there is something that needs healing in you; so you present yourself with an event formed by another set of choices.  You’re testing yourself to see how far you’ve come.

Here, in the case of my unauthorized password change, I got to process feelings of powerlessness (someone is out to get me), procrastination (this wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t put off updating my password), and guilt for being less than excellent in all areas.

 

The trick is to know which events are on your current timeline, and which are collisions from another timeline.  They can look exactly the same unless you review the details.

 

Take a hard look at the event. I mean Head On:

  1. Look at the people, objects, and nature of the event very carefully.  In them, you will find indications that you’re seeing an experience from another timeline.  People may look slightly different, such as wearing different clothes than they normally would.   Something will feel, well,  OFF.  Use your gut’s analysis of the situation.
  2. Is this event related to something you’ve been worried about? A fear in the back of your mind, festering there?  If so, chances are you’ve got a bleedthrough.
  3. Feel the emotions that this event triggers. This is important in either case.

If you’ve determined that this event is not on your current timeline, that doesn’t mean you can ignore it.  By doing that, you’ll be setting yourself up for a more cataclysmic event down the road.  The objective here is to process the emotions that arose from the event, and to get that blocked energy cleared away.  On the other side of the coin, if you continue to consistently focus on the disastrous event as your reality, then off you go, diverted by the bleedthrough onto a new path.

But I’m guessing that you want things to work out OK; so if that’s your aim, then process the emotions and switch your focus to the most joy-filled timeline you can imagine.

At the least, acknowledge that you experienced an idea that wasn’t in line with your desires.  You sent yourself a test; you then self-evaluated the results, AND you cleared out blocked energy as well.  This is progress!  The event then loses its volatility, and can be safely stored in your consciousness as a neutral experience.

There’s one more thing, and it’s crucial:

Never speak of the event, to yourself, or to anyone, again.  This is how any idea is removed from your current timeline.

By filing away the occurrence with neutrality, and never referring to it again, it becomes merely one of an infinite number of possibilities available to you.  You’ve tasted it, it was yucky, and so you put it back.  Consider possibilities that will taste better, and focus on those.

As you continue to make conscious choices about where you focus your attention, such tests will no longer be needed.

 

Bleedthroughs can be positive experiences too. 

If a sudden opportunity presents itself to you that seems too good to be true, then take note.  You’re testing yourself on your ability to accept good things.  Can you handle these gifts, or will you fall back into old ways and believe that all aspects of life can’t be exactly as you want them to be?

Are there areas of your life where you are experiencing bleedthroughs, believing that they are your current timeline?

Check out all the details; feel the experience in your gut, and take action where called to do so.  For me?  All it took was one email collision to finally get me to change my password and cross it off that list.

13 Things I Wish I’d Known At The Start Of My Awakening Journey

You are here on Earth to learn to love yourself.

This path can be as bumpy, or as smooth, as you choose.  It’s your ride!  So if you’re just starting out on this journey, here are a few things I’d like you to know, because I chose the bumpy path and you need not do the same!  There wasn’t anyone around back then to tell me these things, and if they had…well I would have thrown my hands in the air and squeed with joy around every corner on this roller coaster of life.

Here are the things I wish I’d known when the whole thing started:

 

1. You need not be in a state of perpetual healing.

Much like a scale out of balance, as you apply love in place of trauma, equilibrium takes over.  There will come a time when you will say, “I am healed,” and you will leave it behind.  This includes the idea that you need to heal the Earth Collective of every evil that ever existed, throughout history.  As you balance yourself, you become a powerful healer wherever you go, with no action required.

 

2. Crying means you’re getting better, not worse.

Any culture that tells you that crying is weak has been lying to you.  Crying is an immediate release of resistance, as well as an initiator of rebalancing chemicals that heal your physical body. The process is meant to cleanse you, and it is not a sign that something is wrong with you.  Let those tears flow whenever and wherever you are.

 

3. All physical pain has an emotional cause.

Your body is not solid. Humans simply believe that it is, and as such, they search for solid cures to their imbalances. Although medical intervention serves its purpose during the stage where we believe in external cures, you can discover your own internal healing process for any imbalance.*

Oh, and those unexpected 12 hour sleep sessions you find yourself partaking in? They are not depression; you are healing on many levels while you are out for the count.

 

4. Music has a profound affect on your vibration.

The music that you listen to will indicate your current world view.  Note how a song makes you feel, and if it agitates you, then choose something else.  You are made of sound.  And just like an orchestra in which many instruments contribute to the aria, any sound you hear will blend with you and affect your energy. Consciously choose which sounds you allow in.

 

5. Daydreaming is the process of creating LIFE, and is not an escape.

We are told to get out of “fantasyland” and get back to reality.  This is a lie.  The creational process is enacted through you using your imagination.  So rather than feeling guilty about those daydreaming episodes, remember that this is the process of creation, and it is a most valuable use of your time.  The true escape is to fill your head with other people’s ideas rather than nurturing your own.  Social media understands the value of your attention, and uses it like currency.  Social media, television and movies may leave your life, as your imagination becomes so vivid that you no longer need anyone else’s input to fill your day.

 

6. Loving nature plays a huge part in the process. Buy a plant!

Part of humanity’s imbalance is its relationship with Earth, which is the ultimate Martha Stewart of hostesses.  You have a whole planet to play on!  It is important to establish a relationship with Earth in any way you can.  Yes, that means getting out in nature and reveling at the beauty of it. If you live in a city, buy a plant and learn to care for it as if it were your child.  Not only will it thrive in your care, but it will heal humanity’s damaged relationship and bring us all back into balance. Note that if you are interested in honing your supernatural abilities, focusing on rebalancing yourself with nature is the most efficient way to do this.  For me, it has rejuvenated my abilities as a rainmaker, a deathwalker, and other long-dormant shamanic skills.  You have them too!

 

7. Tying up loose ends is required.  Debts, relationships, promises.

If there is something nagging you in the back of your mind, pay attention or it before it gets humongous.  Bills you keep forgetting to pay, people you keep forgetting to thank, even an oil change you’ve been putting off. Get them done and have as much appreciation for the situation as possible.  This is you, bringing yourself back into balance. Even paying an extra $5 on a debt sends the Universe a sign that you’re working on rebalancing things.  You will receive help, I promise, and in very imaginative ways. Integrity is paramount in the awakening process.

 

8. You are never alone.

Everyone goes through a period of relative isolation. You may lose all of your friends as your frequency rises and theirs doesn’t (but don’t get the ego involved, as there could be those who have vibrated right past YOU!). Yet as you learn to love yourself more, your perspective will also change about who Others really ARE.  You will discover that there are tons of beings that exist outside of your line of visual sight.  It’s a gradual progression of acceptance, in which you concede that you don’t know everything there is to know.  And yes, those things flying around the room that you try to explain away…they really are other souls sharing the space with you. And if you’re wondering if someone you’re thinking about is connecting with you, the answer is yes. The process of your thinking about a person affects them, no matter how far the distance. We are all connected, all the time.  There are no exceptions. You might just forget that once in a while.

 

9. No one is out to get you.

Read my words:  There is no such thing as evil.  There is only your belief in evil.  Once you stop believing in evil, it disappears from your life.  This includes pandemic viruses spread among the population by shadow governments; oligarchies by oppressive Reptilians, bullies, and alien abductions.  All of these occurrences are merely symbols—that you have created—to help you work through your fear of loving others, and ultimately, yourself.  Your Higher Self is on your side and wants to see you, and everybody else, WIN.

 

10. You really can have everything you want.

It CAN all work out just the way you want it.  No one has to lose for another person to win.  You have full imaginative capacity to dream of a world in which you get exactly what you want, and so does everyone else. This is the most profound piece of knowledge that I wish I’d had.  Everyone can win.  The outcome of your dreams depends ENTIRELY on your beliefs of whether or not something can happen.

 

11. Your environment is an extension of you.

Your physical environment, which encompasses everything that you can see, hear, taste, walk around in, and explore, is an extension of you.  If you imagine yourself in the middle of a bubble, you take your environment with you wherever you go.  All of what experience OUT THERE is really an extension of what you believe in HERE.  Every bit of stimuli that you receive from your surroundings, from a dog barking to a crowd of angry people, is placed there for you, by you, as an indicator of what you’re thinking.  The sooner you start considering your personal bubble as part of you, the faster you will gather information about your inner workings and rebalance yourself.  That’s when you will start seeing those dreams appear in the physical.

 

12. Everything is a symbol.

A multidimensional life—one in which you are living both in your mind and in a physical environment—uses many languages.  Words are cool, but symbols tell volumes.  Learn to ask yourself what a rash of repeated bird images means to you.  Repeating numbers, even repeating situations, are all symbols of something much deeper.  Even time is a symbol, and really doesn’t exist.  If this baffles you right now, try reading some poetry to get yourself accustomed to how symbols are embedded in everything.

 

13. Being gets you further than doing.

Our society tells us that in order to reach a goal, we must perform a physical action:  “No pain no gain! Just do it!” Our culture advises us to create lists, and no matter how painful it is, check something off each day; if you don’t, you’re a failure.  This is social engineering, otherwise known as a lie.  Any action that isn’t performed in joy does little to move you forward; you are essentially spinning your own wheels.  Part of your re-establishing a connection with the Higher Self entails listening to it; check your gut and how it feels about doing anything.  More often than you think, just sitting and doing nothing will propel you into a creative state where you find solutions without needing physical effort to accomplish them.

 

I hope that these tips will assist you on your path.  Since there is no one single reality, you are free to agree or disagree with them as you awaken.  You are the creator of your life, and you get to choose!  Anything that doesn’t feel right in the gut—throw it out!  Feel for what does resonate, and follow that.  This is integration at its best.

It is my highest desire to see you win.  I certainly am!  Love to you.

When An Item You’ve Lost Suddenly Reappears

It’s happened to us all at least once. You leave something on the dresser, and when you come back to look for it, it’s nowhere to be found.

You may search frantically, and finally when you give up and call it lost…there it is, sitting right on the dresser just where you left it.

Oh, the confusion!  Why does it have to be so hard to be human?  Why do these things happen?  Why mess with our minds like that?

Remember, everything you experience on Earth has an inherent lesson.  And we’re talking about lessons on all levels of creation, ranging from the physical you, to your Higher Self, and beyond.  Yes, even your Higher Selves are learning lessons.

Let’s run through a scenario that I experienced a few weeks ago.  It began with a pair of lost earrings, which I kept in a small plastic bag.  A year ago, I’d gone on a frantic search for them, for I’d finally had something to wear them with.  They’d gone years in that tiny plastic bag, passed over for other jewelry that I liked better.  And when I finally needed them…they were nowhere to be found.

I moved across town, and the lost earrings fell away from my attention.  Fast forward two years, and one Sunday morning as I passed my open bedroom door, I noticed something on the carpet just outside of my slightly ajar closet door.  The small plastic bag containing my earrings.

 

earrings on floor

 

The mind charged full on, up that first hill of the roller coaster.  Up, up, WTF, how?

 

As humans we must find an immediate explanation for everything.  We are logical creatures!  It is only right that we know the truth!

We’ll access all the files of our belief systems, in a frantic search for an explanation that correlates with our current world view.  And yet there will be some that we just can’t file neatly away with simple answers.

Such experiences encourage introspection.  So let’s take a look at three levels of awareness and see what we can learn from our disappearing item.

First we ask ourselves a question:

Why are these earrings, that have been missing for years, suddenly here on the bedroom floor?

Note that the question begins with “why” rather than “how.”  We want to form the question to include symbolic explanations as well as physical ones. By using “why” you are asking the question to a level of Self that has access to a broader perspective than the Self standing there with a plastic bag and a dumbfounded look.

Now, hang out for a sec, with the item in your hand.  It has energy, and you are reading it.

Answers will most likely start on the 3D physical level.  This is to reduce fear while in the “freak-out” stage, which is when a physical explanation is required to calm your anxiety.

 

“Blame it on the cat.  She must have found them stuffed for safe keeping in one of my seldom-worn shoes, and turned them into a toy to bat around.  She bores quickly, so they weren’t too far from the closet.”

Explanations in physical terms are a fail-safe; they provide you with an answer that will settle your mind.  This may be as far as you’re currently willing to go with this experience, and you could go on with your day.  You’ll have your explanation that fits into your world view, and your sense of reality is restored.

But do your best to experience the full roller coaster ride.   Let yourself whiz down that first hill and see what arises.

 

The next level is what I call 4D.  This is the intuitive part of you. 

The one that senses things, and feels things even though you can’t explain them.  It’s the part of you that concedes that there are forms of life that you can’t see, but you can still experience.

“Oh, thank goodness! I have guardian angels helping me along.  They returned my lost earrings!”

Here, you’ve confirmed your beliefs that things happen in realms outside of your physical one.  You’re being watched over.  At this level, you will work on any lingering beliefs about demonic possession, people observing you without your permission, and personal safety.

Let’s go higher, and see what your 5D self is wanting you to see.

At the 5D level you are exploring symbolism.

“What do my missing earrings symbolize?”

All of the belongings surrounding us have energy.  And while they are in our environment, we are responsible for that energy.  Is there someone who would use that item every day?  I bet there is; and by hoarding things we withhold those gifts from a fellow human.

They are also symbols of my ability to attract things into my life.  Everything vibrates at a particular frequency.  And for years, this item was outside of my frequency.  What is the difference between the Me that couldn’t see this item, and the Me that can?

How does it make you feel that you’ve withheld this energy? Guilty? Sad? Unevolved? Here are more areas to explore.

 

You can expand our perspective even higher, if you get quiet and allow it. 

But don’t fall into the “I’m getting nowhere” trap if you can’t raise your perception higher than 5D.  You’ll get flashes of it now and then, which will make higher levels of awareness easier upon your next conscious attempt. Here’s a hint:  You’re controlling all of it.

I’ve listed some areas below to help you explore this phenomenon according to your chosen level of consciousness.  Hopefully the questions will guide you inside to find the reasoning behind your lost item.

And, that lost item!  I guarantee that no matter what it is that you lost and recovered, you will look at it differently forever more.  It’s intended that way; to remind you that there is indeed magic everywhere you look—and also where you don’t look. And that magic is YOU.

Areas to explore if you have experienced the return of a lost item:

Lessons on the 3D level:

Must you always have a physical explanation for any occurrence?  Why?
Do you believe that there is only one answer for any occurrence? Who told you that?
What happens if you can’t find an explanation for this occurrence?

 

Lessons on the 4D level:

Can I concede that I can’t explain this occurrence just yet?
Do Others have power over me?
Do Others have powers that I don’t have? (St. Anthony, or Archangel Chamuel, for example?)
Can they see more than I can see?
Who are these Others?  Are they mirrors of me?

 

Lessons on the 5D level:

Is this an item you love? If not, why is it here?
How long was this item gone before you missed it? Are you rightfully managing this energy (including time)?
What is the disparity of frequency between the You that could see them and the You that couldn’t?
What is the energy of the missing item?  Sad?  Nostalgic?
Does it represent a period in your life needing release?
Does it remind you of something you need to get done?

Remember: when you love your props, more props show up.

woman picking up litter
Awakening Rants, Life on Earth,

When Someone Litters In Front of You

No doubt you’ve seen someone carelessly throw litter on the ground, and continue walking along.

This happened to me , as I was eating on the patio of a restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard. It was a quiet day, and a great time to observe people as they passed by.

One man, crossing the street in lazy conversation with a friend, pulled the lid off of his drink and tossed it on the ground in front of me.

How careless! How ignorant of him! What a jerk.

But wait! We Lightworkers are enlightened beings! We rise above petty judgments and harsh thoughts about our fellow man!

A lifetime went by in three of his steps on the sidewalk. I gazed in agony at the jettisoned lid on the ground in front of me. I glared at the man, who glanced over to see my iron stare.

“Are you going to pick that up?” I asked.
“You pick it up,” he laughed, and without missing a stride, he and his friend walked past.

I fumed in silence.

There it sat. Dozens of people walked past it, some even casting glances at it as they did. But no one picked it up.

Perhaps litter is part of your natural habitat, where you are. The litter, in this case, isn’t the focus of this discussion. The real question is, what do you do when someone’s beliefs about reality are so vastly different than yours that they incite your anger?

In his reality, his actions were justified.  Littering is OK.
In my reality, his actions were not. Littering is not OK.

Whose reality is correct? One in which littering is acceptable, or one in which it is not?

The answer: Both are correct. Both are valid. Both have a place here on Earth.

Learning to share the game board with others living in completely different realties is one of the biggest lessons we’ve come here to learn. This is the framework of unity.

 

Accepting diversity has certainly been the Collective’s biggest challenge.
It starts wars.
It fosters bigotry.
It fills mental institutions.

You get the picture.

 

So how is life different when all realities are considered valid?

This is where you get to define yourself. In times like this, you get to observe your reactions to this little diversity test, and you get to figure out who you will be.

Do you admonish the person?
Do you silently seethe?
Do you judge?
Do you pick up the litter?

You may do all of the above, like I did. I picked up the lid, and I walked the few feet to the trash can to throw it out.

Situations such as these are valuable reminders that others’ beliefs are simply their view of reality, and they have a right to share this world with you. You may not like their behavior, and yet by observing your reactions to it, you are constantly redesigning yourself, and integrating all of the different You’s back into the whole.

Are you afraid of doing the wrong thing? Angry at yourself for your judgments? Consider being kinder to everyone involved, especially yourself. You never make mistakes. You only create opportunities for expansion with every action you take.

Your reactions are your choice, always. So no matter what your decision, it is valid and purposeful for your growth.

Stuck In a Party Full Of Strangers?  Look For The Guy In The 80’s Jacket.

How did you feel the last time you walked into a party populated with strangers?

A little bit of social anxiety? Vulnerability? Outright terror?  Did you walk in and awkwardly get yourself the fastest-working alcohol available?  Been there.

Then, I bet, you started to look for someone you know in the crowd. It’s navigation time, so off you go, drink in hand, in search for someone that brings you comfort in a sea of scary strangers.

Oh no! You’ve searched the entire crowd, and your friends are not here yet.  Fiddling with your phone and checking for texts would certainly come next.  Plus, it makes you look busy.

But that only lasts for so long.  You realize that you are going to have to interact with someone, eventually.

  • “Oh, I don’t want to talk to him, he looks clingy.”
  • “OMG, what is up with her hair?”
  • “I’m not sitting next to that guy, hell no. Has he been wearing that jacket since the 80’s?”

For most of us, it’s automatic to search out the threats in a crowd, and to do our best to avoid them.  And yes, even an outdated jacket can be considered a threat.  I mean, what would you talk about?

“Obviously he and I have nothing in common.”

Are you sure?

I will bet that your initial judgment about him is largely based on historical programming; judgments made by beliefs planted in you by television, movies or well-meaning parents, rather than from previous direct experience.

Here is the truth:

You are divine.  All others are divine.

Is that concept a big jump for you?  And what does divine really mean?

You are a drop from a giant creative, omnipotent Lake—and you have all of the powers of that Lake, with NO limitations.

 

You have incarnated here to experience physicality, to grow, and to remember this truth.

Those fellow partygoers are also drops from this Lake, having a human experience, just as you are.  You are all equal drops, and you all have the same goal here. Even the guy in the Members Only jacket with ten buckles.

Why not see others as friends?

If they are sharing your party, then they have chosen to be there on not only the physical level, but on higher levels as well.  You are there to serve each other, through your mutual interactions.  Remember, you get back what you send out.

So the next time you go to a party, remind yourself of your common goals before you enter the room.  Don’t expect that everyone remembers these goals just yet, just as you forget from time to time.  It needn’t stop you from treating them as if they do remember.

This is how you recognize the divinity in another, and this is how you create that ideal life you’ve been dreaming of.  You’ll be creating from a higher level, one that is not hindered by judgments and false beliefs about reality.

Remember, we’re all friends.

Awakening Signs, Featured, Life on Earth, The Esoteric,

Happening Now: Text Glitches! Fighting Cats! Password Reset Emails!

This week has been one of the highest energy weeks that I have experienced in this lifetime on Earth.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average has hit new highs on virtually every trading day this week (yesterday’s highest point 27,684), which is generally a signal that energy is moving around in all forms: stocks, precious metals, currency, anxiety.

The Collective is stirring the proverbial cosmic soup in order to evenly distribute the heat.

This week, a close friend asked me why I sent her a text message at 12:44 am.  My message simply said, “Damn.” I did no such thing, and we had a good laugh comparing screenshots of our differing text feeds.

Turns out that this happened to thousands of people, who received random texts in the middle of the night from a “glitch” in a text-messaging vendor platform used by the major three mobile companies.

This is one odd occurrence this week, but I got many reports of other events:

  • Smoke alarms going off for hours in vacant apartments.
  • Computer monitors blinking on and off.
  • Normally peaceful cats fighting with each other.
  • Sensitivity to sounds.
  • Receiving a large amount of robocalls or password reset emails

So what’s going on?

When high frequency energy pours into Earth, we Lightworkers, who are spread throughout the world, transduce much of that energy and emit it to others wherever we go.

But not all that energy gets absorbed, and it has to go somewhere.

This can disrupt many systems, including those with batteries (as we move to a more unified existence, the positive and negative polarities neutralize, thus draining batteries at a rapid rate…which makes smoke alarms scream until their batteries are changed).  It certainly disrupts systems that send out automated messages, as in the case of password reset emails, or unexplained texts.

Humans will, of course, try to find a logical explanation for these occurrences.  We’re taught to find proof so that we can file things away in neat compartments of validity.  So in the case such as the mysterious overnight text messages, humanity arrived at a physical explanation for the “glitch.”

But what created the action that created the glitch in the first place?  You can trace it back and back to its originating force, but here is where humanity lacks the detecting instruments for such forces.  Have you noticed that when we run into a scientific brick wall, the whole situation is often brushed under the rug?

In a holographic system, there is never only one single explanation for anything.  With everything interconnected, the forces that move energy can originate from multiple places in the Universe rather than just from one; and when the soup is stirred, the new combination of forces creates a new environment entirely.

This is where we are on Earth right now.  Receiving energy from multiple origins, and stirring the soup to incorporate it all. So what does that mean for you here on the ground?

With each mysterious “glitch” that inspires a line of questions, you’re given the opportunity to check out the temperature of the soup. Take a spoonful and see if new, inexplicable, random things occurring have meaning for you, and resist the effort to immediately search for a logical explanation for it.

Rather than asking “how did it happen?” consider asking “Why did it happen?”

 

Here’s the answer I got when I asked myself this question about the text message sent without my permission:

“Consider how you take responsibility for your own actions.”

 

These things are not random if they show up in your life.  There is a part of you that communicates through symbols, which can embody multiple applications in meaning.

Remember that your world is not random.  Our Universe is an intricate holographic orchestration, coordinating interactions between people, places and events that serve all involved, always.  Will you look deeper, or will you settle for the most “logical” explanation for a seemingly random occurrence?

There is no right answer because there are an infinite number of answers!  You get to decide what relevance you give an event, and you then get to create from there.
