BEAUTY

My Divine Guidance (DG) has repeatedly urged me to stay focused on Beauty. “Seek, see and feel beauty everywhere and in everything, especially where it is hard to see”, they would say to me over and over again. I write every morning and commune with this DG and the clarity of their message is unmistakable and consistent.

In times like these, well, in all times on earth, it may seem irresponsible or Pollyanna or spiritual-bypassing to not focus on the very serious conditions we face as humanity plows down a perilous road towards extinction. As a daughter of social activists, I am acutely aware of many of the perils and injustices we face. I have been trained into this awareness and have cultivated a sense of social responsibility, along with a natural compassion for the suffering of others. As an empath, I have felt in my body, and my heart the achy pain that I perceive the other is encountering. The urge to jump in and rally against the injustices bubbles in me, and yet for as long as I remember something in me has pulled me back, restraining me from the urge. When I was younger it was my shyness and terror of public speaking that made it virtually impossible to speak up.

Now I understand what I didn’t then. Now as I feel more freedom in my voice and confidence to share my thoughts and passion with spoken words, I also have a deeper connection to the Inner Voice of my Divine Self and the Infinite Intelligence that guides me. It keeps telling me that the way of the social activist is not my path. In lives lived in a different time and space I experienced myself as a passionate activist fighting for change. My DG consistently tells me that in this life I am meant to take a different path. I was given the physical and emotional constitution that would discourage me from entering the outer struggle for social justice, yet my desire for transformation in the human collective reality would continue to inform my life and desires.

This path of the sacred activist, the holder of Beauty, is what is being revealed to me, as a way to channel this deep desire and passion I feel for serving to uplift humanity and restore wellbeing to our bodies and the earth. I realize that there are many ways to affect change and if we follow our deepest most inner guidance then we will know what our most authentic path is.

I share my path with you, in case you too may be called to a different path from what perhaps you felt drawn to based on the culture of your family or society. You may feel confused or lost as to how to be most authentically you while mining the expectations you perceive as hindering you. Once we find our authentic, natural way of being, feeling, expressing, then we begin to connect with the guidance that informs us of the perfect path for us. This is the path that becomes the most profoundly powerful gift we have to offer the collective for our evolution and expansion.

My DG repeatedly reminds me of the importance of my path: the path of Beauty. For, if I can master the art of seeing and feeling Beauty in All then I am able to see through this the eyes of the Divine. I am able to remind myself and others of the true nature of Life, of our Beingness. I am able to know that our very essence is Beauty and Love. If I can see this essential nature, then I become a revealer of this Beauty. I become a mirror, a reminder for the other to remember, re-member, so they may know their wholeness and interconnection with all of Life. This is key to ending the suffering within, and when we no longer suffer we act and live from the Love that we are.

As I walk this sacred path of remembering I am challenged to look away from what seems like the obvious, so that I can tune my receptors to the frequencies not so easily seen or felt. I must train myself to sense the subtle, invisible dimension from which all form emerges. This is the creative and infinite field of possibility. As I have honed my sensitivity to this dimension it is increasingly intense in its palpability. It is teeming with energy that gives my body ripples of resonance-bumps and electric sensations. This dimension is not the land of “ignorance is bliss”, nor the cool, yet suffocating, ‘head in the sand’ land. It is a dimension that is more real than the one that we perceive with our physical senses.

At a subatomic level, everything that we perceive as matter is actually “99.9999999999999% empty space.” I first learned this when I read You Are the Placebo by Dr. Joe Dispenza. When I read the chapter, The Quantum Mind, I cried, because for the first time I really felt I understood this very complex concept within the study of Quantum physics. My quantum mind opened up. He continues to say:

“But, that space isn’t really empty. It’s actually filled with energy. More specifically, it’s made up of a vast array of energy frequencies that form a kind of invisible, interconnected field of information. So if every atom is 99.999999999999% energy or information that means that our known universe and everything in it —no matter how solid that matter may appear to us — is essentially just energy and information. That’s a scientific fact.”

He goes on to describe the “Observer Effect”, which is another quantum reality in which scientists have discovered “that physical matter cannot exist or manifest until we observe it—until we notice or give it our attention. And when we are no longer paying attention to it, it vanishes, going back from whence it came. So matter is constantly transforming, oscillating between manifesting into matter and disappearing into energy.”

So when I speak of the unseen dimension, the dark void of infinite possibility, I am not simply being philosophical, poetic, or spiritual. I am, like many mystics and healers for before me, describing a literal reality that only in the last century or so science is evolving to catch up with this ancient knowing. It is a very exciting time.

So the sacred practice of tuning into this dimension, this quantum field, that I consider Divine Creative Source Energy, is no small thing. It is indeed an approach to transforming matter/reality. It requires a great deal of focus, intention, and awareness not to be distracted by the world of matter and form, especially when we find it unacceptable, deplorable, or dangerous. To ‘turn the other cheek’ takes great discipline and is a feat accomplished by few. The masters of our human race, such as our beloved Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. were able to hold steadfast in the sacred practice of Unconditional Love, which required them to stay fully aligned to Love regardless of the unwanted conditions. They understood, at some level, that to become consumed by the condition would hinder them from realizing the reality they sought to embody and see reflected in the world of form.

This path of the sacred activist can give birth to the social activist or vice versa, and often the two are exclusively practiced, depending on the nature of the individual. Both are critical parts of the whole and both are equally beautiful expressions of the Soul. When we are true to our own unique nature we are able to find our authentic path and realize our inner power. This is an individual awakening and the journey is a solo one. While we can elicit support, just as our journey through the birth canal and our journey through the death process, is essentially a solo experience, so is our journey of awakening.

We now sit at the precipice of a new possibility of a new world, that can be created either by observing the myriad of distracting realities or by creating something completely new by the focus of our desires, our intentions, and the essence of our true Divine nature which is Love. Let us use our awareness of that which is unwanted as the fodder to fuel the desire. But let us not become disillusioned or keep our attention on that which fuels fear and despair. We must keep our wits about us if we are to create, from the Infinite Quantum Field, the reality we want for ourselves and our global family. It is the time of many masters, not just a few. It is time to take our heads out of the sand and put our minds and hearts on the work of seeing a new possibility.

This requires removing our attention from what is and trusting and knowing that we can co-create from no thing, the things of matter that matter most to us. So know this, your dreaming, imagining, and feeling into the joy, freedom, peace, beauty, wisdom, and Love that you desire to see and be felt in the world, is truly a powerful approach to effecting change. It is the fuel of creation and transformation.

So play, dance, create, meditate, collaborate, envision! And, by all means, seek, see and feel beauty everywhere and especially where it is hard to see it.

In Love and Oneness
I am

Making the Dream the Reality

We are in the midst of very strange times. I must admit that I have struggled to stay centered in the whirling winds of this hurricane. It seems that we are all being instigated to feel the buried patterns that keep us steeped in a state of separation consciousness. I would like to consider a possibility, as we collectively dance in the waters of this global crisis. 

Could it be that we are in the midst of birthing a new earth? The metaphysical and spiritual community which I resonate with, offers this potential. I would like to wade in the waters of this possibility and allow myself to feel the warm embrace of the cosmic Mother wrap me in her dark and safe womb. 

Could it be that all the extreme expressions of the illusive belief that we are separate from each other, the earth and all of life, is the last crescendo of resistance before the fall of the old paradigm? Could it be that this intensification of polarity consciousness is the rock bottom we all have been waiting for that will initiate the conversion experience that will awaken humanity to a new way of being that embraces interconnection, interdependence, unity consciousness and oneness? Could it be that this long moment in time is pushing all the dysfunctional programs to the surface to be revealed, so that we can make a choice to delete them from our hard drive, allowing space for new programs that serve the sustainability of Life flourishing on earth, including humanity?

Could it be that our collective Soul chose this moment so that we could evolve?

It feels like we are no longer in the warm embracing womb of the Mother. It feels like we are in the throes of labor. It hurts! To so many of us, it feels as though we are dying because the crushing squeeze of each contraction is annihilating the world we know. Some of us are  unconscious and perhaps numbed by medication that keeps us unaware of the intensity of the moment. For some souls, they have chosen to leave the physical dimension so they can assist from the realms of Divine Love, unencumbered by the fear-based ego. Perhaps some have left their bodies because they knew that their sacrifice would serve a greater good to awaken humanity to the insanity born of separation consciousness. Others are riding the rollercoaster ride with zest and zeal, fearlessly diving into the adventure of this drama. This program of control, competition and division is being revealed and the deep desire for a world of unity, cooperation, creativity and collaboration is growing. 

With the new enlivened desire for this new earth to emerge, we become at times, mesmerized by the conditions that are fueling the fierce desire for this expression of Love to take hold. The challenge for those of us who believe in this possibility is that we stay focused ON the new possibility and do not give our precious energy to the dying program that is fighting for its life. Fighting is the nature of the old paradigm. War is its language. It will fight to the bitter end. So it will require intense focus and commitment to remove our focus from this war zone, so that we can envision peace, beauty, thriving life and creative self expression for all. 

Do you remember the movie “A Beautiful Life” where the father creates a world of wonder and adventure for his son in the midst of being contained  within a WW2 concentration camp? For the love of his son, he ‘fooled’ him to believe this was a game, and he was able to keep him alive until the end of the war so that he could reunite with his mother. It takes a very creative, resilient and unique human being to be so focused. His love for his son and wife was so fierce that it gave birth to this intense commitment to creating beauty in the midst of war. He made the dream the reality for his child. 

It is time for us to do the same. We must make our wildest most beautiful, magical dream the reality in our own personal world. We must take our attention away form the world of war that our past has created, and focus on the world of beauty and peace that our past has inspired!

As we do this in the small ways that are close to home, we will grow in our ability to bring this frequency of a new reality to the larger community around us and beyond. We must practice this fierce Love. Let’s think of those that we love easily and fiercely and embody this New Earth for them. Live it and show them the truth of this beautiful new world. It won’t be hard once we train ourselves to see beauty everywhere. It is all around us already. We don’t even have to imagine, although that is always fun to do. Beauty and Love is the essence of all of Life. It is available in each moment, when we allow ourselves to see it. You may have to take out your metaphysical binoculars so that you can truly see the beauty where normally you see pain. Start with the places it is easy and then challenge yourself to find beauty everywhere. 

I assure you that as I write this, that I am writing this for myself. For someone who is addicted to feeling responsibility for the wellbeing of everyone, this is a challenge that I have failed at miserably. But my persistent Inner Being, and the beings of light and love that are always by my side, keep picking me up and patiently nudge me to this sacred seva —the sacred service that does not leave myself out. For as I embody Love, Beauty, Peace, Joy and Freedom, in the midst of a perceived world of the opposite, not only do I emanate this life giving, transforming frequency to the collective world, I am drenched in these divine frequencies and feel the relief of coming home to the Ultimate Truth of God. 

So I see Beauty. I see it. I feel it. I know it even when I can’t see it. It is in the starving child, the raging racist, the dying tree, in the sick and the poor, in violence and peace, in death, in struggle, in pain, in heartache, in the victim and the villain. Yes, this is hard. This is hard to accept, let alone see. We are trained to judge everything as right or wrong, good or bad, beautiful or ugly, worthy or unworthy. We have been trained to see everything as separate within the consciousness of duality and polarity. It is time to experience a new consciousness that can create a new reality. Our old consciousness keeps creating more of the same old reality. 

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of this limited perception of reality and I am down right exhausted by this war that lives inside and outside of me. It is usurping my creativity and zaps all my energy. So I invite you to find your own way to end the war, and to support me and others to envision, create, and see The more Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible that is already vibrating with vibrancy right behind the veil of our own limited perception. Let’s lift that veil and live from this reality, so that we can reveal this living truth for all to see!
