The Secret Cure for All that Ails Us.

(If you missed my “Building the New World” report yesterday, read that HERE.)

“The secret cure to all that ails us,” isn’t much of a secret really. In fact, this “secret” is known by every great teacher that ever walked this earth (Jesus, the Buddha, Moses, Mohammad, Amma, Gandhi, The Dalai Lama, Thomas Merton, Meister Eckhart, Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, Paramahansa Yogananda, Black Elk, The Thirteen Grandmothers, etc. etc. etc. This “secret” that has been discovered by the most revered teachers of every culture is…..(drumroll please)………



The Dalai Lama speaks of this oneness in the context of compassion. The Buddha spoke of it as presence or essence. Moses knew it as the voice of God within him who guided him and his people. Teresa of Avila experienced it as ecstasy. St. Ignatius experienced it as consolation. Jesus spoke of it as being One with God and he experienced this Oneness as love. Every great teacher discovered this truth within themselves and then sought to teach others how to experience this Oneness and how this Oneness was the cure of all that taints the human experience – pain, anxiety, suffering and death. Experiencing and knowing Oneness allows us to transcend the inherent pain and suffering of the human condition and it is in this state of Oneness that we know “the peace that surpasses all understanding.”

It is one thing to speak about Oneness and to understand it in our minds. It is another thing entirely to have a personal, lived experience of this Oneness as I was reminded just this past week. While I have had many glimpses into this Oneness over the course of the past fifty years, enough so that I understand and can speak with authority about Oneness, not until this past week did I fully comprehend or even experience Oneness and never before had I experienced Oneness to the extent that it was in fact too much for me and I had to run away. After a week of processing, I’m happy to come back to this Oneness….but first the story of finding the cure.

The Journey to Oneness

My experience of Oneness happened in the context of a shamanic journey in which I was carried away in a dreamlike vision in search for the answer to a question that resided deep in the center of my Soul – the question about fully embodying the call of my Soul in this life. In the journey I was greeted by one of my spiritual guides/teachers who often accompanies me on shamanic journeys. He grabbed my hand and ran with me to the world in which I would journey. When we arrived in that world it was night. As we stepped across the threshold into the journey world, I beheld a multitude of beings flanking us on both sides. I sensed the beings as my teachers, spirit guides, angels, saints, ancestors, loved ones – all present in spirit form offering their support. In the blink of an eye, my guide turned into a jet-black dragon while also being present in human form to “drive” the dragon. He grabbed my hand and pulled me atop the dragon and off we flew into the night.

We flew up and up and up across the journey world – past landmarks and places I had experienced in previous journeys. We flew up and up and up, out of the atmosphere of the earth and toward the full (blood) moon. We flew toward and then past the moon and continued out into space, past all the known planets of our galaxy, out beyond our galaxy and toward the constellation of Orion. We flew past Orion and on to the star cluster of Sirius. We then flew past Sirius, deep, deep, deep into the center of our known Universe toward what scientists refer to as “The Galactic Core.” The Galactic Core is what is beliefed to be the center of the Universe and the theorized Source of the original “Big Bang.” It is also out of the Galactic Core that our current experience of Wave X has its origins. Holding tightly to my guide as we flew atop the black dragon, we flew closer and closer to the Galactic Core when I became aware of a rhythmic pulsing emanating from this core. Wave after wave after wave of vibrating and pulsing energy came at me from this core which I suddenly realized was a heartbeat. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom – resonating the steady heartbeat at the center of the Universe.



God IS the Universe!  We are the Universe!

Then it hit me, this heartbeat which is thought to be the Source of all of creation and the origin of all that is known and unknown in our Universe is GOD. God has a heart and God’s heart resides in the center of our Universe and is the origin and source of all that is. Then my mind and vision began to expand – the Universe and all that is known and unknown in the Universe is the actual body of God and the galactic core is God’s heart – beating out a continuous and rhythmic pulsating vibration that I keenly identified as LOVE. Love. Love. Love. Love. – the steady heartbeat of the Universe/God that emanates from the center of all that is and which, in fact, is the cause and the source of all that is. Love. Love. Love. Love.

As I connected with this experience of God as the Universe and God’s beating heart as the galactic core of the universe and the center and source of all that is known and unknown in the universe – then my brain exploded. If God is the Universe and all that is….and we are part of all that is…..then we are part and parcel of God. If the Galactic Core is God’s beating heart than here on earth, we might be God’s big toe and each of us a pulsing cell within that toe. Equally, we might be God’s left eye – reflecting and refracting back to the Center of the Universe, to the beating galactic core of God’s heart all that God wants to see. In other words – if God is the Universe and we are part of the Universe then WE ARE ONE WITH GOD. And what we experience in this place of being One with God is LOVE. A love that is beyond what we can comprehend – a love that is all encompassing, embracing us in rapturous ecstasy. A love that destroys all that makes us small and elevates us to our original nature as ONE in LOVE. Living as love, out of love and for the purpose of love. Love. Love. Love.


THIS is the truth that sets us free. THIS is the cure to all that ails us. Love that made and flows steadily throughout the entire universe and beats steady and pure from the center of all that is. We are one with this love as part of the living universe and one with this love through our own beating hearts. Love is all there is. All there is is love. When we know this we know peace, contentment, joy and love. THIS is the reason for all our restlessness, boredom and longing – LOVE calling us home.

Building the New World – Nay to the Naysayers!

So, how did you fare through the past week’s Heave-Ho into the new world? If your week was anything like mine, you experienced both the heights of ecstasy along with the depths of despair. While many were hopeful for an immediate entry into, and experience of, the new world, most of us were either disappointed and/or caught unaware by the backlash that often comes with periods of rapid delivery.

There can be no doubt about it – with the conclusion of the full blood moon lunar eclipse and the culmination of Wave X, WE ARE CHANGED. We have indeed crossed the threshold from 3D (separation consciousness) into 5D (unity consciousness). The challenge, however, for most, is that (as we often forget), when we make such enormous leaps toward God(oneness), the small self fights back and the trickster raises its ugly (only when we judge it as such) head. The trickster/small self shows up to challenge us, “Are you sure this is what you really want? Wouldn’t you be more comfortable staying where you are with the fears and compulsions with which you have become so familiar?????” And then, trickster shows up AS these compulsions.

Fear. Judgment. Self-doubt. Self-loathing. Anxiety. Depression. Envy. Rage.

For me, this is exactly how the trickster showed up, in dramatic contrast to the TRUE miracles that unfolded in the past week: – VERY generous donations to the house-buying campaign; miracles happening in the lives of every one of my clients, students, readers; witnessing the true growth of my business; fantastic insights and personal growth in the “Create As Love” course I’m taking with Lauren Gorgo; a shamanic journey that showed me the TRUTH of our ONENESS with God (more on this later). These were the miracles.

Then the trickster showed up in: worries about money; self-doubt and bargaining; computer glitches that made me step aside from technology for a few days; and the biggest trickster of all – NAY-SAYERS. One after another after another person showed up questioning, challenging, doubting, staring blankly in the face of my vision, mission, and the decisions I’ve made in order to uphold the vision that is planted in my heart. Most pointedly, trickster showing up telling me all the ways I’ve done it WRONG and that perhaps I should throw in the towel and get “a real” job. Hah – that old story!!

The trickster, showing up in the bodies of others, but ultimately reflecting back to me my own:

Fear. Judgment. Self-doubt. Self-loathing. Anxiety.

But you see, I KNOW what I am here to do. I KNOW my mission and purpose in this life. I KNOW I’m damn good at what I do. AND every time I think about or even try to “get a real job” the Universe puts up one obstacle after another and then plunges me into the depths of desolation (which Ignatius of Loyola recognized as the energy of the adversary). Indeed, in order to accomplish this mission, I have had to do things in a very non-3D way – taking great leaps of faith and going against societal, financial, tribal “shoulds” in order to support this mission. To one with 3D (fearful) eyes, the choices I have made might look strange, if not a little insane. To 5D (oneness) eyes, there is no judgment – only what had to be done in a fearful world to help bring forth a new world of LOVE. In order to bring forth the “unconventional” world of love, unconventional tactics have had to be employed.

So, the trickster showed up to give me an opportunity to retreat into my small-self (fear), or strengthen my resolve in the mission of my Soul.


If you are reading this blog, you too have been gifted with the same idea of a mission and purpose for you in this life. Likely, you feel deep in your heart a desire to help BRING ABOUT A NEW WORLD. You have grown tired of a world ruled by fear, power and control. You are exhausted by all the things in the world that cause us to do harm to ourselves and to one another. You are frustrated and tired of the struggle that the majority of humanity faces just to put food on their tables and a roof over their head. You long for a different kind of world:

  • A world in which people are loving toward themselves and toward one another.
  • A world in which the needs for food, clothing, shelter, education and healthcare are satisfied for all.
  • A world in which people are acknowledged for their own unique giftedness and then nurtured and empowered in the use of these gifts because we know that the world becomes a better place when all are fulfilled in their gifts and empowered to use them.
  • A world where all people are treated with dignity and respect and where we honor each other in our respective beliefs and the choices we make that fulfill the deeper longing in our hearts.
  • A world where violence is rare and peaceful collaboration and cooperation are the rule.
  • A world where love rules and where fear is recognized as a cry for help and appropriate healing methods employed.

This is the world that you came to help humanity build. You too have been told you were crazy for dreaming dreams of a better world and for wanting to do something about it. The good news is that you are not alone and that WE have now reached critical mass and our voices, while still somewhat quiet, are becoming the majority, if they weren’t already. We long for a NEW WORLD built on love and one that seeks to HEAL the fear that has kept us imprisoned for 10,000 years!

So, if the nay-sayers show up in your life as you are in the midst of entertaining or working for your dreams – recognize them for who they are – your small self trying to remain small and showing up in both people outside of you and in all the voices in your head that say, “You can’t do that,” and then make a choice. Choose to stay small and afraid, or heed the voice of your SOUL that says, “YOU ARE SO BIG because you are made of LOVE and love is infinite.” And then PLEASE be your BIG self, because the WORLD NEEDS YOU!

Crossing the Threshold into the New World!

As I recline into reflection on this past week’s (years) galactic events (solar eclipse, equinox, full blood moon lunar eclipse, Wave X, etc.) I am acutely aware of having crossed a major threshold – and the rest of the world with me. Like the people of Who-ville screaming out to Horton, the only being who could hear, the collective “we” chanting/shouting/proclaiming/declaring/celebrating:

We are here! We are here! We are here!

And like the people of Who-ville, I feel as if we have not arrived at some place new, but instead, that the rest of the world finally knows we are here. Rather, the world has finally caught up with what we have known and imagined all along.


But, where exactly are we? My experience of where we are is exactly where we have always been but were unable to see/experience/know/BELIEVE. The place we are IS HOME.

What in the world does that mean? What does it mean to be home? First, what home is NOT!

Speaking only for myself (though I suspect many of you as well), I have known – from a very early age – that I was not born to live in the 3D world (the world of duality), but that I was born to live in a different kind of world – one that for many years I could not name – but I certainly had known. I was confirmed in this knowledge through all the things of the 3D world that made absolutely NO SENSE to me. Things like – fear, power, control, competition, deceit, doing harm to another, violence, hatred, war, prejudice, selfishness, narcissism, abuse, waste, conspicuous consumption, unbridled consumerism, etc. etc. etc.

I was also confirmed in the knowledge that I was not made to live in the 3D world when ALL the ways of manifesting in the 3D world eluded me. NOTHING came to me through the “tried and true” 3D methods for achieving success and every time I tried to do things the way “the experts” say it is done, I FAILED – and I failed miserably – and then I died from the trying – suffering exhaustion, sickness, anxiety, panic and even depression as I tried to fit my 5D (unity-directed) Spirit into a 3D (separation-directed) world. But, the things that I truly needed in my life, those things that were expressly for my Soul’s highest good, all came into my life through no effort on my own but through SHEER MAGIC – along with my ability to hear/see Magic when it showed up and then saying YES to it.


Which brings me to the discussion of what home IS:

Home is the manifestation of all that we know in our hearts to be true and the fulfillment of our Soul’s deepest inner knowing/desire.

Let me give you some examples:

For my whole entire life, there are certain things I have known to be true.

  • I have known of a place where all my needs were being abundantly met in a way that allows me to live simply, comfortably, in a place of beauty and safety that makes me feel at home but does not deprives others of this same human right.
  • I have known that I am uniquely gifted and that my life has meaning and a purpose – both for my own fulfillment and for the sake of the betterment of the world.
  • I have known that there is nothing (but myself) holding me back from being my most authentic self (except perhaps the Soul’s timing).
  • I have known that I am here for the purpose of love – to love and to be loved and to enjoy the fruits of BELOVED PARTNERSHIP. I have carried within me a deep knowing of what Beloved Partnership is and what it feels like and I that my Soul would tell me when I was straying from the kind of relationship my Soul was destined to experience.
  • I have known the inner experience of withholding my truth and that only in expressing my truth would I find freedom.
  • I have known myself to be my own authority and that my Soul desires for me to know my truth and communicates truth to me through deep inner knowing, dreams, intuition, learning, life experiences, people with whom I come in contact, prayer and my creative imagination.
  • I have known that I was never alone and that I could not walk this path alone and that I am ultimately One with God in Love.

Finally, I have known in the deepest places of my Soul that the way all of the above comes into being is as if by MAGIC. The manifestation of our Soul’s deepest knowing and desires is meant to be effortless and to be experienced through the greatest of ease – like Samantha Stevens wiggling her cute little nose or waving her gossamer-draped arms in the air – POOF- all we are meant to be will be made real and present in our world.

We Have Arrived in the New World


Brothers and sisters,

We have arrived.  We have arrived in the new world. We have left behind duality (3D) and have stepped fully into Unity Consciousness (5D). It has been a long, hard journey of purging, releasing, cleansing and freeing ourselves of all that is no longer life-giving and not supportive of the world we have dreamed of and the world that has finally come to be.  The past few weeks have been a doozie….solar eclipses, an equinox, tomorrow’s full blood moon and lunar eclipse and WAVE X which reaches out to us all the way from the galactic core as the fullest expression of love.  Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. and his audiences with Congress and the U.N., along with all the minds and hearts he has touched with his unconditional loving presence perfectly reflects what we are really in for.

Our world has changed and there can no longer be any doubt about this.  Our minds and hearts have been broken opened and we see that we are no longer alone (not that we ever were).  We are not the only crazy ones who have dreamed of a more loving world and we are not the only crazy ones who have assumed great risk to follow the vision of our Soul’s and the deep knowing in our hearts.  All of our hard work, all the risks we have taken, the financial gambles we have endured are all paying off as we are allowed to be the first witnesses to the TRUTH – the Truth that the world is made of LOVE and is made for the purpose of LOVE and that we were placed on this earth to carry this vision and see it become real.  The veil of ignorance and fear that has obscured this TRUTH has fallen and now all that remains is LOVE.

This is a time of great celebration – a celebration that will continue to grow as the LOVE that we are continues to find its way into full manifestation and as we bear witness to the new creations that are being born out of this love.

Thank you for holding on to this vision and for being a source of anchoring the reality of this love in the world.  As a partying (parting) gift, I want to share with you a poem that arose out of me yesterday as I completed the first assignment in the “Be the Force” course that I am taking with Lauren Gorgo.  Thank you Lauren for helping us to remember our Magic=Love=Freedom!  XXOOXXO


Freedom is: Love is All there is.

Copyright 2015 Lauri Ann Lumby


Freedom is experiencing life as a dance –

An exuberant celebration of the Love that

dances through me and

tumbles through my fingers,

through my eyes,

and out of my mouth –

like glimmering jewels paving the highways and byways-

sparkling and twinkling

catching humanity’s eye so that they might find their way home –

an easily marked roadway that leads to:

“All Are Happy Here.”

Where gifts are freely shared

Because they are fully known.

Like the Pied Piper whistling his tune,

My dance irresistibly calls the world into

Its own Oneness.

Oneness defined by Love,

Known by Grace,

Experienced as Ease.

Where all find peace, fulfillment and joy;

Where all needs are met in abundance –

Not only that we might survive but so we may also


Creation and manifestation happening as if by Magic

because I know the love that I am and live it freely,

exuberantly, abundantly and with all generosity –

easily treating others with Love because

Love is all there is.


The absence of love (fear) no longer part of my consciousness as

Love, Love, Love, Love, Love is all there is.

The absence of love (fear) is no longer because

Love, Love, Love, Love, Love is all there is.

Love in its fullness and Love in the process of being born.


All is only Love.

Love is all there is.

And in the face of love in the process of being born,

We can only respond with Love.

Freedom is: Love is all there is.

Help Authentic Freedom Buy A Home

Help Buy Authentic Freedom Academy a Home!

This crowd-funding project began with a personal need and has expanded into a vision of re-creating the way we support and finance small businesses – especially those who are pioneers in their fields and working toward bringing forth new ways of doing business while serving the betterment of our world.

The personal need that I am currently facing is one shared by many small business owners – the need to purchase a home or building in which to operate their business. With the ever-tightening regulations on home mortgages and small-business loans, pioneering businesses such as my own are forced to find creative ways to fund their businesses.  Crowd funding has become one such option.


Here is my story:

Since 2002, I have been self-employed as an educator, minister, spiritual counselor and hands-on healer ( – a pioneer in the integration of psychology, spirituality, healing, education and social change.

I offer a tremendous service to my students and clients, many of whom pay as they are able or don’t pay at all because of their life circumstances. If you are reading this post, you too have found value in the services that I freely offer to the world.  While I could become a non-profit business, I have chosen not to for a variety of reasons. For the past four years, I have been working out of the home I am renting. This has worked out well for both my family and for the people I serve. The owner of the home has been happy to continue this arrangement, but is now facing their own life transition and wants to sell the house. So I am now faced with two options: BUY or MOVE.


I don’t want to move. This home is perfect for my business. My children love this home. And so do I. This home showed up for us in a very magical way (starting with a vision, then a heart-knowing, ending with a home); and I believe we are meant to stay here and continue to be stewards of this magical property which provides a welcoming place for my clients and students, and a nurturing environment for my family.

Here is where the idea of Crowd-funding comes in….inspired in part by the book The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer.  As I am facing the looming deadline of BUY or MOVE OUT, I got to thinking. “I know a ton of people. If everyone I knew contributed just a little bit – $100.00 for example, I could easily buy this home.”  So I’m asking for your help.  Please consider making a donation to Authentic Freedom Academy so that we may purchase our home, securing our ability to continue sharing our services with the world and freeing us to do so even more generously.


Here are the details:

The appraised value of the home is $110,000.00

This is my fundraising goal!

$110,000.00 and the home will be mine free and clear and I will not beholden to any bank or financing company, thereby freeing me to more freely share my gifts for those who need them.



The Bigger Picture

My story reflects the dilemma of many small business owners – especially those who are pioneers in their field. What if crowd funding became the new way for small business owners to make significant purchases without paying the bank (or their credit cards) a ridiculous amount of interest? What if instead of the banks and credit card companies making money off OUR money, we supported each other? I know I would gladly contribute $100 or $50 to a friend who is trying to support the growth of their business.   I might not be able to do it all the time….but I would help whenever and wherever I could. How about you? How many times have you gladly donated $25 or $100 to a GoFundMe campaign for a friend who fell on hard times or received an unpleasant medical diagnosis? How many times have you slid $100 into an envelope for a family who recently lost their parent? How about the family down the street who lost their home to a fire? All of these are examples of contributions made because of a tragedy. What if crowd funding became a way for us to support each other not only in the tragedies of our lives but also in the joys – the joys of supporting the germinating seeds of each other’s passions and the ways in which we are each individually called to give back to the world through our own unique gifts?


Here’s the Pitch

So, here’s the pitch – HELP support the services that I, Lauri Ann Lumby, provide to the community and to the world through Authentic Freedom Academy, my inspirational writings, courses, weekly services, weekly meditation newsletter, and my publishing efforts by contributing to this crowd funding campaign. Invite your friends and family to pitch in….(share it on Facebook, through your email, Twitter, etc. etc. etc. ) and then keep your eyes and ears open for other small business owners in need of your support. That’s it! Help Authentic Freedom Academy buy our home and become part of a new way of supporting each other in the fulfillment of our life’s purpose, passion and gifts, ultimately in service to the betterment of our world!

As my friend Ted Balser often says, “Please and Thank you!”
