Do Not Be Afraid

BIG CHANGES are coming into our world- everyone seems to know it and are feeling it. Just yesterday I shared a blog post with my Facebook community that heralds these BIG CHANGES and speaks of some of the potential consequences of these changes. (here is the post: http://www.foreverconscious.com/huge-shifts-in-consciousness-coming-in-september-2015). I have to admit, I was a little bit shocked when reading this blog to find their predictions of financial market collapse echoing the very words I hesitatingly shared with my children just the day before, “I don’t want it to happen this way, but I have a feeling there might be a collapse in the financial markets. With China having issues, I have to wonder.”

I don’t share this blog post or my curiosity about financial market collapse to trigger your fears. Instead, I am posting this blog today as a source of encouragement and support and to assure you NOT TO BE AFRAID because if you are reading this blog (and sharing it with your friends), you are NOT the ones who will experience the BIG CHANGES as devastating. Instead, as the changes unfold, you will experience a great sense of relief, excitement and joyful anticipation because THIS IS WHAT YOU CAME HERE FOR.

For our entire lives, we have been preparing for this. We have done the (sometimes) excruciatingly painful work of expunging the fear and perceived separation from our consciousness so that we could remember our original Divine nature as LOVE. In this great work we have broken every rule of Western society to follow the truth that has been guiding (HOUNDING) us through our hearts. We have left careers that were no longer life-giving in pursuit of our truth, often at great financial risk. We have shown up again and again and again as harbingers of LOVE and vessels of peace, in service to humanity – more specifically, to a vision of a kinder, gentler, more loving and harmonious world. And in this work, we have suffered – physical pain and exhaustion, emotional collapse, anxiety, depression, financial hardship, and rejection – rejection from those afraid of the change they intuitively know us to be bringing forth. THIS is what we came here for and WE ARE READY to step fully into our roles as teachers, healers, visionaries, prophets, leaders, servants, counselors, missionaries, administrators, builders, gods and goddesses in the creation of the new world – the world that is not new to us because for a lifetime this world has lived in our heart. We already see it. We know it. We live in it. Therefore, the creation of the new world, for those of us who have been doing the work, will be effortless and filled with ease (including lots of time for creativity and play!).

Such, however, will not be the case for those who currently “hold the gold.” This is where the devastation lies. To those who have made their gold through fear, power and control, these changes will SEEM catastrophic, but only to the extent that they are clinging to what they have known – their positions of status, power, wealth, privilege, etc. For as the Buddha reminds, it is only our attachment that causes suffering. We can already see the symptoms of this devastation and it is happening on every front – government, judicial, banking, agriculture, commercial trade, manufacturing, medicine, education, religion. Every institution that was founded on a hierarchical, unholy masculine (not to be confused with the HOLY MASCULINE which is currently being reborn in our world) model based in fear, power and control is in the midst of collapse and they know it but are in deep denial over the reality facing them. They are afraid and their fear is coming out sideways in rash decisions, ridiculous policies, violence, projections of blame, etc. etc. etc. We need look no further than the current presidential race, funded solely by corporate interests, to see the evidence of a system in the state of complete collapse. When Kanye West thinks he would make a good president how can we take any of it seriously?

angelpower

We don’t. The system collapse is none of our business – except to be a source of hospice and support for a system that is dying, and to be a source of encouragement and healing for those who will wake up because of the collapse. They will be needing tools for grieving the loss of what they have known and resources for finding the new life in the midst of the systemic death. THIS IS WHAT WE CAME HERE TO DO – first for ourselves (which we have already successfully done!), and then because of the expertise we have gained in doing this for ourselves, we are now ready to help show others the way.

So, DO NOT BE AFRAID as you watch the BIG CHANGES as they happen around you, because ultimately, these changes are not for you. They are only for you to the extent that they are clearing the surface on which the NEW WORLD will be built and if you are reading this blog, YOU are the builders of this new world and OUR time is NOW!

Nothing More To Forgive – from Shadow to Gods

Today’s blog is for those interested in the evolution of human consciousness and where we are in our journey as we mark this full moon in Pisces (August 29, 2015) and the final days of Saturn’s journey through Scorpio as it draws closer and closer to Sagittarius.

For the past two and a half years, as Saturn has been journeying through Scorpio, we have been in a place of DEEP SHADOW work. As the archetypal Lord of The Underworld, Scorpio (associated with Pan, Hades, Gwynn Ap Nudd, Cernunnous) has been leading us through the darkness of our own depths where we have been invited to exhume the corpses of all those things we would rather keep hidden away.

newworld581239_1280

Individually and collectively, we have been forced to look at all those things we have repressed, suppressed, denied, ignored or locked away, hoping we’d never have to look at it again. Every past hurt, wound, betrayal, etc. has resurfaced to haunt us and every fear, compulsion, and rejected aspects of ourselves have risen so as to be seen. The past two and a half years have been reminiscent of the evil queen in Snow White looking into the mirror to see what can be seen. And what we have been shown has not been pretty.

This time of deep reflection and introspection has not been without purpose. As Scorpio has assisted us in bringing all of our darkness to light, it has been done for the sake of healing and transformation. We are being invited to see what remains to be seen so that we can heal it and change it – ONCE and FOR ALL! Saturn in Scorpio (for those who have been willing to do the work) has been a time of grand FORGIVENESS. Forgiving old hurts and past wounds, but most importantly, forgiving ourselves. Every unhealed wound, disappointment, betrayal, etc. stands in the way of us enjoying the FREEDOM that is our Divine inheritance. Every experience, memory, situation that we ignore or suppress keeps us from enjoying the fullness of our unique giftedness. Every part of ourselves we condemn, ignore, reject, imprisons us within fear and keeps us from the life of meaning and fulfillment we were meant to enjoy.

With Saturn in Scorpio, we have learned that forgiving ourselves is the key to freedom and that everything we judge outside of us as having hurt, offended, wounded, condemned us is ultimately a reflection of our own condemnation of ourselves. Scorpio holds us ACCOUNTABLE to no one but ourselves and assures us that it is not us against them, but us against our very selves. When we learn this truth and take responsibility for EVERY negative reaction we have toward “the other” as reflecting an unhealed experience within ourselves, we have learned what Scorpio wanted us to learn, and we, like Saturn are ready to move from Scorpio into Sagittarius. In Sagittarius, we enjoy the rewards of hard-earned wisdom as we settle into a life of authenticity and purpose reflective of our most authentic selves. In the journey through Scorpio, we had an opportunity to understand our excesses and appreciate the values of temperance and simplicity, tested in the fire of deep shadow work. In Sagittarius, we can rest and enjoy the fruits of our labors while allowing our deep inner transformational work to take root, anchoring us in a place of purpose and intent. In other words, after completing our journey through Scorpio, there is nothing more to forgive.

Mucha

“There is nothing more to forgive.” This is the message I heard in meditation this week while observing my own transit out of Scorpio and moving toward Sagittarius (which will be complete on September 17th….interestingly the day I arrive home from Muse Camp!). In this meditation, I saw the wounded, hurt, judgmental, dualistic version of myself as a shadowy version of me. I saw it standing in its place of perceived separation – where it feels alone, powerless, wounded and afraid. Beside the shadowy aspect of myself, I beheld a brilliant version of myself I have come to call, “The Goddess Queen.” This version of myself is my true self – a radiant, light-filled being attired as a queen, reflecting the power of a goddess. I this version of myself with long, flowing white hair, wearing a sparkling crown of silver and gold bedecked with diamonds and stars. I was wearing a long flowing gown in shades of white, stitched in brocade patterns of silver and gold. The gown was fitted at the bodice with a heart-shaped neckline. On my feet were slippers of sparkling silver and gold. I was the Queen. I was the Goddess. What I realized in seeing this vision is that I AM the Queen. I Am the Goddess. And this is the energy and power of my truest, most authentic self, the one I came to be on this plane.

Then I saw the Queen/Goddess approach the shadowy, wounded part of myself. And rather than reject her or send her away, The Queen/Goddess embraced the shadowy aspect of myself and brought her into herself. As she brought me toward her, she whispered in my ear, “THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO FORGIVE.” Then I saw the part of me that had worked so hard to complete the shadowy work ascend into the heavens as she was welcome by the heavenly host and ushered into her place in heaven where she could be rewarded for her hard work and find rest for all she had accomplished. Then, all that remained was the Goddess/Queen.

I AM the Goddess/Queen, complete with all the lessons I’ve learned, with nothing more to forgive.

And so are you! Your hard-earned journey through the shadows is coming to its own place of completion. You have fought a hard and difficult battle. You have taken responsibility for your own pain, your own fears, your own compulsions, your own projections. And in doing so, you have made yourself ready for the time of your own reign – the reign of the God/Goddess/King/Queen that dwells within you and that which will uphold you in your own unique giftedness and the unique way you are called to be a LEADER of change in our world. Congratulations, you have completed your mission….and there is nothing more to forgive.

Sunday Service – The Price of Freedom

On Sunday, August 23, 2015, we hosted our second Sunday Service at Inner Sun Yoga Studio, Oshkosh.  It was a stormy, rainy morning and we appreciated the opportunity to gather together to share in a common desire to be vessels through which love, peace and harmony are made real in our world and to participate in tearing down the walls of perceived separation between us.  Here is the audio recording of the teaching portion of our gathering:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iNNlfqLB94

Please join us this coming Sunday, August 30, 2015 for our weekly Sunday Service.  The theme this week is healing the fears within us that lead us to our compulsive behaviors (greed, sloth, pride, envy, etc.).  We will be using the principles and practices of Authentic Freedom to facilitate this learning!  Looking forward to journeying with you on Sunday!

Catching Up with Ourselves

If you are reading this blog, chances are you feel in your heart a deep burning to be part of making the world a better place. You have carried within yourself a vision of a different world than the one in which we have been living. You know that as a species we are capable of so much more than what we have settled for in the past 5000 years. You know in your heart that human beings are capable of creating a planet that lives in harmony and peace, that understands that it is care for (rather than dominion over) our planet that will sustain us, that love and unity are entirely possible if we put our minds (and hearts) to it. You know that you are here for this reason and you will not rest in peace until this reason has been accomplished. The problem is that most of your life you have felt alone with these thoughts and entertaining this vision has likely put you in conflict with most of those around you, the institutions in which you were raised and the “tribal” rules of your family and the communities in which you found yourself living. In order to heed the voice of your Soul/heart, you had to step outside the status quo, rock the boat and disturb the sh.t; or the pain of rejection was just too great a risk and so you hid your gifts away hoping you wouldn’t be seen for the PROPHET you are.

The good news is that you are not alone, the time of hiding has come to an end and the world is finally ready for our vision and our gifts (or there are finally enough of us waking up that the scales have tipped and the world can no longer ignore or resist our presence and our mission). As Stephanie Azaria (TheCosmicPath.com) mentioned last week, “we are catching up with ourselves.” In other words, the reason and purpose for our lives and our unique call is finally catching up with the vision we have held onto all these many years.

Sally (Sandra Bullock) plays a modern-witch in the movie Practical Magic.

For me, it is all about the magic – specifically the magic that will create our world anew – the magic that inspired me first through fantasy in the forms of Samantha Stevens (Bewitched), Morticia Addams, Sally Owens (Practical Magic), Rowan Mayfair and Michael Curry (The Witching Hour), Obi Wan Kenobi, Merlin and Morgan LeFay, Galadriel and Gandalf the Grey. I have known in my heart of hearts, in my Soul of Souls that magic is not only possible but quite real. I have also known that we don’t have to wiggle our nose to make magic happen but that it simply arises out of our beings when in partnership with the Divine and the highest purpose of our Soul. Jesus called this magic FAITH. As I have come to understand it, faith is not an act of will as has often been interpreted, but is instead and natural unfolding of our Soul’s purpose when we are courageous enough to get our minds out of the way. Faith produces miracles and requires no effort on our part except to get out of the way. While we may need to take action on the Divine guidance offered, nose wiggles and magic wands are not usually required to get the job done.

Magic, I believe, is what will make our world anew and as I see it, magic is already happening. Magic is happening for me in the miraculous way my initial vision of reforming The Church has ultimately come to pass, but ironically I no longer feel the need to reform or change anything. I simply feel called to continue the work Jesus did of bringing people to LOVE and teaching them about ONENESS. The rest, I have learned, is taking care of itself. In heeding this call, a new/original model of church and priesthood have emerged on their own – not by my efforts to change things, but by my willingness to do nothing. As if by magic, something new and wonderous has emerged. As it grows, its roots reach deep into the earth and its branches reach out to embrace the wider world and soon this tree will be seen by all. This tree is showing the world a new/original way of supporting humanity in its individual and collective psycho-spiritual growth – the kind of growth that helps to support the birth of a new and more loving world. Now, if that isn’t magic, I don’t know what is!

And, I’m not alone. Each and every one of you has your own unique vision, mission and purpose for this life. You have held this vision in your heart and if you are honest with yourself, it BURNS within you. This vision is waiting to be acknowledged, nurtured and cultivated so it can find its own roots and branches, supporting the new life that is waiting to be born through you. The world has caught up with your vision and now it is time for you to set it free!

Being Hospice to our (3D) selves as We are Dying

In Friday’s blog, I wrote about the new world that is in the process of being born through us. As this new 5D (non-dual) world is being birthed, our 3D (dualistic-minded) selves are in the process of dying. This dying-off process is presenting itself in symptoms similar to those we go through in our literal, physical deaths – physical pain, anxiety, restlessness, anger, sorrow….and a fair bit of bargaining and denial. As I was writing yesterday’s blog and speaking about how to tend to our dying selves, I saw a very clear image that I want to share and a practice I want to elaborate on as I believe it will prove helpful for all of us moving through this transition.

Use the Donate button on the right to help support Authentic Freedom Academy and all we freely offer including this blog!

What I saw was an image of my 3D (dualistic, fear-based) self, lying on a hospital bed. The bed was clothed in white and I was wearing a hospital gown. I was lying in the bed, dying. Beside the bed was my 5D (oneness and love-based) self, sitting on the edge of the bed holding my 3D self’s hand. My 5D self was providing comfort and support to my 3D self as it was releasing.

I saw in my mind’s eye all that my 3D self had done to get me to this place in my journey – the journey it had undertaken, the pain it had experienced, the fear it had known, the suffering it had embodied. I saw the lessons she has learned, the joys and the sorrows she had experienced. I saw her as a warrior who had fought a long and difficult battle – the journey she came here to do – to live in the world of duality so that she could have the fullness of the human experience. She came to have the fullness of the human experience for the purpose of transforming the human experience – to usher herself and all of humanity with her through 3D (dualistic) consciousness to a new way of being. I thanked her for a job well done, for completing her journey and to assure her that she has completed her task and that it is now ok to LET GO and surrender her body and spirit to the other world – the Source from which she came.

holdingdyinghands

I saw my 5D (oneness based) self sitting beside my 3D (duality based) self and holding space for her as she lay dying. I held her hand. I comforted her. I prayed with her. I comforted her in her fears (the 3D self fears death). I lay my hands on her in release and thanksgiving. As I held her in this place of loving support, she surrendered. She relaxed into the face of her death. She acknowledged the hard work she had undertaken and felt pride in a job well done. She felt as if she had fully accomplished what she had come here to do and that in this, she could surrender to death and in death, rest in peace. I held my 3D self as she surrendered into the peace of death and I held her as she released her last breath. As she released the final breath from her 3D body, I saw her spirit separate from her body and in its rising, the sky opened up and a brilliant light shone through as a multitude of angels and heavenly beings sang songs of great joy. Jesus and Mary Magdalene came forward, and the heavenly beings parted, revealing between them a gold-paved road that led off into eternity. Jesus and Mary took the hand of my 3D self and led her away from the duality in which she had been living to a place of reunion with her truest self which is not separate, but wholey (holy) and completely one with all that is.

As my 5D self sat in witness to this wonderous event, I felt only peace. I knew that I was not separate from my 3D self, but that in her reunion with all that is, she had become fully integrated within me. She and I are one and will never be separate.

The time of separation has ended for all of us. Our 3D selves have succeeded in their journey of duality so that we could all have the fullness of the human experience. And now that we know what it is like to be fully human, it is time for our Divine Nature step forward to integrate what we have learned as human beings so that we can do what we came here to do – transform the human experience from one of fear into one of love. First, we had to know what it is like to be human. Now it is time to show humanity what it is like to be gods!

Birthing Something New – Fear of Change

We are in the midst of the most incredible journey involving all of humanity….all of creation in fact. We are in the midst of witnessing to and participating in CREATION as it is birthing something new. The new that is being born is both outside of us and within us, but is ultimately unfolding out of the depths of our own consciousness….and it is a wonder to behold.

Use donation button to the right as a way of supporting Authentic Freedom Academy and the services we freely offer, including this blog.

What is being born is nothing less than a NEW WORLD! A completely new world the likes of which we have NEVER experienced (not in our human incarnations anyway!). We are quite literally creating something out of nothing and doing so without a map, without a guide, without a blueprint and without a business or strategic plan. There can be no plan because what we are creating is not of this world, neither is it three-dimensional in its nature, therefore it cannot be seen or touched. Instead, what we are creating is of the fifth dimension where there is no discernable form because in the fifth dimension, all is one, unitive and harmonious – a far cry from the duality that defines the 3D world.

creativity720243_1280

So, how are we supposed to help this creation along if we can’t see or touch it and if there is no plan? This is exactly the point – there is NOTHING we can or should be doing. The new world is being born THROUGH us, not because of us or because of our efforts (more on this in a bit). Instead, it is our job to get out of the say (this is our part of the doing) and ALLOW the new world to be born. The challenging part of this process is that we CLING to what we know. We find perceived security in feeling as if we are in control and as if we have control. But the real truth of the new world being born is that WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL and the more we cling and the more we strive after control, the more difficult this journey will be for us. We know that we are clinging or trying to control things when we feel ANXIETY (or sheer panic which is often the case!). Anxiety and panic are signaling to us that we are clinging and trying to control and are an invitation to enter into some DEEP SELF CARE!

BE GENTLE WITH OURSELVES! The world is changing. It is changing through us. When anxiety, worry, fear, panic, compulsive planning, anticipatory thoughts, etc. plague us, this is an invitation to STOP. Ask ourselves the question, “What is my fear?” Then give loving care and reassurance to our 3D/fearful selves that this fear is simply the fear of CHANGE. NEW and magnificent things are coming. A world and a life far beyond our wildest dreams. And we are afraid of what this change might mean for us. Breathe into the fear and allow ourselves to feel it and to know that the fear is arising because something MAGNIFICENT is about to happen. Breathe into the fear and breath out love.   LOVE ourselves in the face of our fear. LOVE ourselves in the face of change. LOVE ourselves for wanting to cling and wanting to control. LOVE LOVE LOVE ourselves for being human and LOVE the 3D part of ourselves that knows it is dying. For this is our greatest fear. The 3D self (the one defined by separation, duality and fear) is in its final death throes and like a physical body that resists its physical death (even when the spirit is VERY willing), the 3D self is clinging to life. As they do in hospice care, administer a little spiritual Lorazepam as in the exercise above. Acknowledge that the 3D self is dying. Give it something for the anxiety (in this case loving care and the breathing exercise mentioned above), and sit beside it giving it comfort as it lets go of this life so as to be welcomed into the new.

sent

And then, as it the journey of physical death, let the spirit lead. In the depths of our soul, in the center of our hearts WE KNOW. We know where we are going. We know what is to come after the death of the 3D self and the 3D world. We know that what is coming after the life that we currently know is more magnificent then we could possibly imagine. Our hearts and our souls KNOW! If we need a blueprint or a plan, let this be it! Let our hearts be the guides and when the fearful mind steps in (which it will) love it in its fear then return our attention to our hearts. For our hearts know where it is taking us – “There’s no place like home.”
