The Many Layers of Our Reality

The Many Layers of Our Reality

Can we accept that our certainty about what is true today may change tomorrow? In fact, can we allow that we are changing and evolving on a continual basis, despite our best efforts to stay the same? Years ago, when I read Caroline Myss’ book “Anatomy of the Spirit,” (published in 1996) her rules for living made a big impact. The first two rules are: “Make No Judgments” and “Have No Expectations.” At that time, I wondered if I could ever apply these rules in my life, and so began a personal experiment. I initiated an internal practice of noticing when I am making a judgment about anything, and then mentally examine my perceived judgment. I then attempt to disentangle the reasons why I’ve arrived at a judgmental conclusion. This practice has produced some helpful and healing perspectives. And, I recently applied it when I received an interesting reaction to my new book. When a family friend read the book’s Preface which describes my personal journey, they reacted negatively, not wanting to believe that their idyllic perspective of my family life was different from the dysfunctional experiences I related. The book’s title, “Not What We Appear to Be,” refers to the many layers of our reality, and this was so true about my family life. However. after reading the book’s Preface, and subsequent themes which offer new perspectives about the human experience, the friend prefers to believe that their own perspective is true, and refuses to consider that there may be other possibilities. They closed the door to engaging in any conversation. Yes, I was disappointed, but I respect their desire to close...
Predictions that Generate Fear

Predictions that Generate Fear

What can you tell me about predictions of a catastrophic shift of the Earth’s poles? Will this happen and do I need to prepare for it? The vital instinct for survival expects catastrophe, for this is in your genetic makeup. The fight or flight mechanism produces the results of expectation of disaster, thus you turn your attention to protecting yourself and planning it in many ways. When you are given this type of prediction, your first reaction is to connect with fear of extinction, and a frozen (panicked) body reacts without consideration of the best possible options. Thus, you have been correct in taking the first step to release the fear associated with this prediction, including fear of the unknown and desire to take those actions previously considered, such as stockpiling food, water, and moving to a safer location. The purpose of predictions is to expand the connection between cerebral cortex and reasoning ability so that a vibration is released to uncover those cords associated with imaginative experience. There are local and nonlocal connections to these cords which find their way through emotional and multidimensional channels. When a parallel connection is made, it manifests on multiple levels as experiences both inside and outside the vibratory field. It manufactures a reality which mass consciousness will accept as fact regardless of actual manifestation. Taking this a step further, the manufacture of the experience can be diluted or dissolved by turning your attention to an alternate reality channel — changing the channel excludes the energetic currents associated with fear-based expectations. In answer to your question about whether pole shift will occur…yes, it is...
Coping During Chaos

Coping During Chaos

We have problems wrapping our minds around the certainty of our mortality, so we generally ignore our fragility and assume that nothing is going to change. We make plans, and assume that our future will be consistent and predictable. That is, until we hear predictions about global warming, mass extinction, asteroids nearing Earth, and polar shifts. Astrological conjunctions indicate that in the next few years we will experience a jarring shift in our daily lives that will result in massive chaos. And, as a result of the recent U.S. election, some believe that we are now experiencing the ‘underworld.” How do we cope? The unknown does not respond to fear or anticipation of outcome, and it doesn’t provide a personal connection to support and comfort us. Can we possibly find comfort in our hearts, believing that love can be used as a bridge? Can we use love to carry our load and manage the structure of beliefs that we’ve acquired in order to protect us from our vulnerability? If we don’t make this essential connection, we may be frozen in time, or no-time; we may remain stuck, afraid to take action and detached from the multidimensional aspects of ourselves. We frequently forget that we are not alone and we are being guided in every moment. We ignore our connection with those parts of ourselves that are available to support us when we seek answers to unanswerable questions. Sometimes, those other aspects of ourselves seem out of reach…but they are always there. They connect with that abiding, knowing part of our heart that exists outside the box of 3-D reality....
Last Weekend at Bridge to Avalon

Last Weekend at Bridge to Avalon

Thank you so much, Jeannine Clemens, owner and guide at Bridge to Avalon in Charleston. Last Friday evening, I spoke with a vibrant circle of people. We discussed how we are changing on a daily basis, how we receive guidance, and how we manage our experiences in our new reality. It was exciting and rewarding to discuss how we are releasing old belief systems and paradigms, and that we now have the opportunity to move beyond our dramas and karmic patterns. It can be challenging, but also exhilarating, when we maintain awareness of our multidimensionality and realize that the choices we make are affected by unseen factors. We also talked about the fact that being vulnerable binds us together, that trauma can keep us stuck, and when we own our issues, it helps us to resolve trauma and heal. I then had the opportunity to give in-depth readings on Saturday and Sunday. By energetically connecting with each individual, I answered questions and provided them with insights about how their personal experiences relate to their karmic patterns and life lessons. I received gratifying feedback and found it deeply rewarding to provide support to each of these amazing lights on their spiritual path. It can be difficult to explain, but I am merely the instrument for providing support to others. I put my Self aside and communicate whatever I receive without effort. I have no personal attachment to the information received. In continuing to follow guidance, I believe that I’m experiencing the bounty of abundant gratitude: In gratitude, the heart opens to fortunate circumstance, which serves as an armament against negativity, supplementing...
Karmic Stop Signs

Karmic Stop Signs

Karma has been defined as the experience of unresolved experiences from the past that return again to give us new opportunities to encounter and resolve them. In other words, our issues, patterns and emotional baggage return again and again until we are able to recognize and heal them. Some people don’t believe in karma, but to me, it serves as a personal stop sign. When I encounter resistance or delays that inhibit my ability to accomplish my goals, I take it as a sign to stop and reconsider my direction. I’m grateful that I don’t have job karma, because I’ve been gifted with unsolicited job offers at critical times in my life. However, when I think back to the times when I have been slammed with negativity and conflict, I see that I was encountering personal patterns – karmic stop signs – requiring me to think through, and feel through, all the complications associated with them. When that happened, I was moved to reach for new ways to understand and resolve the issues. I only know if  I’ve resolved a particular karmic pattern if it doesn’t reappear in a different form! Message: Digging down in oneness, the patterns of experience reflect the identity of the individual, whose vanity discloses a natural tendency to believe they are the personality associated with their birth name. However, each individual expresses the unity of consciousness which reflects a universal delivery of truth on multiple levels. The anxiety or conflict associated with karmic patterns carries a resonance for shared manifestation. Thus, they are not unique to the individual. The Soul agrees to experience the karmic manifestation as a consideration of the value of the whole. The triggering of a pattern produces a form of resonance which carries it to the next level...
Healing and Emotions

Healing and Emotions

Message: Our family dynamics reflect the paradigm that we are meant to heal in this lifetime. Thus,  when your parents are incapable of loving you for whatever reason, your faith in yourself is tested and your ability to master the confusion resulting from lack of love and reaching for unrealized affection creates a broken energy field that relates to carrying a burden of cellular incompletion. Because your cellular makeup is nurtured by the continuous ebb and flow of the universe, all cells work to maintain the balance associated with participation in that dynamic. Question: How is it that the emotion of love is the glue that binds the universe? Is this so? Message: Yes, when you reverse the magnetics of universal flow, it results in the association of emotional context to the human heart. The beating heart reflects the pulse of expansion throughout the magnetic fields and the connection of all in this construct to the greater plan. Question: Why is it that emotion triggers the universal flow and why do some people repeat bad behavior even though they should know better? Message: Fabrication of emotions or manipulation of qualities attempting to manifest a particular result are inexperienced attempts to understand and master the third dimension. This dimension responds to the polarities of peaceful co-existence vs. violent expression. This is because the inexact creation of human biology and attempts to manipulate self-expression resulted in counter-intuitive behavior being rewarded. Thus, rewards for bad behavior. Even when an individual expresses bad behavior, the reaction of society reinforces that behavior due to an interaction with them which provides them with reinforcement. Most individuals feed...
