Challenging Old Beliefs & Boundaries

Challenging Old Beliefs & Boundaries

As we strive for an ideal of achieving balance and alignment, our old beliefs and boundaries will be challenged in our daily experiences so they can be examined. The impression we may hold of authority compares our own inability to function with another who we view as more capable, intelligent or wisdom-filled to guide us into unknown territory. That territory exists within ourselves and the outside appearance reflects the underlying probabilities which lead us in the direction we are meant to go. In general, an authority figure is an icon or person who appeals to our weaknesses and expresses them in a way that leads us into our own darkness, due to insecurity and lack of faith. Our own lack of faith magnetizes these personalities to us because they mirror our internal spaces. How do we know when we’ve arrived at an authentic basis for our choices which will be in our best interest? The underlying influence is an internal resonance developed as we grow into our authentic selves, the true nature of which develops over time while we evolve and participate in experiences and receive thoughts intended to guide our homogenous patterns toward a light-filled manifestation of the new human. That individual is a receptor or transmitter of the more evolved state of humanity as it develops a maturity and understanding about its place in the grander vision of the Universe. We are transitioning through a break in human consciousness which does not carry the resonance of old thinking. The integration and identification of the steep climb toward newly evolved consciousness requires installation of upgraded codes rather than...
Conscious Understanding in Chaos

Conscious Understanding in Chaos

I’ve been trying to understand what is happening in the world right now. Message: Because there is a gap between the conscious understanding of the nature of reality and the truth, the human experience is not inclusive of explanation despite the desire to know. This desire to know is innate to the human species regardless of the number of habitually unexplained experiences. Providing an explanation for an experience is exclusive to the Being who is inquiring. Their version of the reality, or what has occurred, will prompt them to acquire the necessary data to move into a third or fourth reality cone related to their cognition, which supports their version of understanding. Without this element of cognition, there would be a gap in consciousness to freeze or paralyze the ongoing evolution of that particular Being. Thus, the creation of a framework of understanding also creates the forward motion to the individual’s next level of growth. The trauma, or perception of trauma, is an element of managed growth called maliconcept — where the experience is negative, the concepts created by the recipient change their views and versions of reality to alleviate their trauma and allow them to transition to a safe mindset. Otherwise, as mentioned, they would be unable to continue and their path would be frozen or stuck within the framework which they experienced for an indefinite time. The partial alleviation of the trauma pursues a new track, finding the individual navigating within their alternate reality — that reality which is created for perception of safety. When a number of individuals share such experience, they create a pod of...
Why We Shouldn’t Tell Anyone What To Do — Ever

Why We Shouldn’t Tell Anyone What To Do — Ever

I wonder if I send out an unspoken invitation for friends to give me unsolicited advice, because I’ve received some pretty direct advice from a few of my well-intentioned friends. My first thought is…they must believe that they know what’s best for me, based upon their own wisdom and experience, which makes them confident that, because they know me, whatever they advise me to do will be to my benefit. Should I meekly accept their advice and do as they suggest, even if I haven’t come to their same conclusions about what might be best for me? Will I make my friends happy if I take their advice? On the other hand, I wonder…why would a friend tell me what to do, when, from my perspective, they don’t appear to be taking positive action toward improving their own quality of life, and frequently complain about their circumstances, which don’t appear to be improving. Could this be the human condition…a merry-go-round for stuck people who tell each other what to do and then never do anything? I can only conclude that I’ve created an expectation in those who know me that I will act a certain way or continue on a certain path, producing familiar results based upon my past behavior. And if I don’t, my friends are comfortable offering their loving support by giving me feedback on my deficiencies so that I’ll behave as they expect and return to the familiar path. Of course, those expectations are created from learned behavior, past experiences, and society’s expectations of what success looks like. And, if I don’t behave as expected, I...
Wedded to the Journey

Wedded to the Journey

All that distracts and is outside of ourselves is just polarized noise – a distraction from the truth of our being; a mind game to keep us polarized – a phenomenon created to separate us from the oneness of being. And so long as we allow ourselves to be triggered and distracted by it, our ability to exist in wonder, magic, manifestation, and authenticity will be eternally elusive. The ego is a fraud which collects our doubts, fears, and misperceptions in order to control our illusionary experience. Step outside that space and what do we have? Is it ordinary or extraordinary? Reach for the values that exist within love. That includes cherishing and accepting the truth which your soul calls you to understand. The value of life is a seed which grows from the smallest thought that you may germinate from the inside out. Navigate your life from that part of you that perceives that what is outside of yourself teaches and guides but does not control you. For example, the perception of the tree includes the leaves, the trunk, the roots, the rain, the sunshine, the birds and insects. All support the ecosystem of the tree so that it may thrive. But there are no polarizing factors unless there is an outside threat. So as a human what is your ecosystem – what nourishes you and makes you grow and what threatens your health and life support. Where do you sink your roots? How deep do your roots reach and is the sustenance adequate to nurture you? I am a tree. If I am a tree, the clouds contain...
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...
The Birth of a Book

The Birth of a Book

On Sunday, I submitted the manuscript for my book to my publishing liaison. The book’s title is: “Not What We Appear to Be: New Perspectives for Conscious Living.” Emotionally, it felt like I was handing over a child that I had nurtured for a very long time, and now will release it to venture into the world. That part of my life is complete, so I’ll step into the role of offering it to others, in hopes that people will find the book’s contents enriching and enlightening. In fact, this book has nothing to do with me at all. I continue to feel blessed to have been the instrument through which the information was received. I asked questions, and in return received a broad range of enlightening answers about the experience of being human. When my friends congratulate me for completing the book, it’s sort of funny that I don’t feel boastful or proud about my personal accomplishment. Instead, I feel humble and filled with joy to be able to share amazing and sometimes mind-blowing perspectives about human origins and how to navigate our lives. I hope the book will find its way into the hands of readers who are open to receive and ready to take the next steps in their spiritual journey. I continue to receive insights about the speed at which we humans are changing and evolving. Our understanding of how we fit into the universal grid is shifting. Isn’t it ironic that, although not acknowledged by conventional society, there is a vast movement of conscious individuals who are finding, embracing, and sharing with each other. Message:...
