Coping with loss on the spiritual journey

Excellent guidance on coping with loss on the spiritual journey. Karin offers practical tools and illustrates with examples drawn from her own experiences.

Spiritual Awakening

On the spiritual journey, there is often change, and that means loss of what once was and the corresponding emotional upheaval.

The loss or crisis (think about something like burnout, divorce, loss of a job, death of a loved one, illness, trauma) can be either before the awakening to a spiritual dimension of reality or it can come after awakening (or both). Some people have the breakdown first, and then they wake up as a consequence of hitting rock bottom. Or they awaken first, and then circumstances in their life are rearranged by an invisible force and that means loss of the old and arrival of the new. Asking new questions about the meaning of life may well mean that the universe thinks it is time to end an old job or relationship – to replace it with something of which the higher self thinks that it is better.

Happy February!! Why Astrology Works- A Biased View

2021 Update: Happy February! 2/1/21,how cool is this! It adds up to 6, the number associated with Venus and Love. This is quite fitting since I did a 4 card tarot reading last night and the Venus card came up as the summary card <3.

Enjoy this annual post here from snowy USA. BTW I would read the entire post, including the 2020 intro. It still resonates now. The birds are back ( ruled by Aquarius), life is upside down and blurry, but I am still breathing and if you are reading this, so are you, which is a sacred privilege.

Namaste, litebeing

 

Happy February 2020 everyone! While I would be lying if I said I am carefree now that the calendar progressed one month, I will say that some relief has arisen inside of me. I do not take this for granted. To say the energies are intense now seems incredibly redundant. We cannot go back ( from the perspective of linear time, that is). This is the norm at present.

The days are growing longer here in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring does seem to be within reach. I am eager to share with you some new musings about reality, ascension, and living in a body litebeing style, but this requires more processing and the correct “space” to write in a way that is blog-worthy in quality and scope.

So in the meantime, I want to share with you a new article by Matt Kahn. I find myself surprised to notice that I may be partially? ascending. Please read below and share your reactions with me. Then scroll further below to read my annual February blog.

love ya, litebeing

 

Energy Update: This is the Ascension

I welcome you today for this energy update, not with more signs of how the Universe is preparing you to Ascend, but to confirm that the Ascension process is in full swing and well underway.

During the 12:12 Stargate which was more pronouncedly open between 12/12/19 through 12/21/19, I began feeling the quickening of Ascension in progress, unlike any other glimpse or preview I had sensed before.

During this actual Ascension, it has a very surreal quality, as if you are walking between worlds. Perhaps it feels like you are already in the afterlife, while story lines of life seem to play out around you. Maybe you are noticing a visceral disinterest with many of the addictive coping mechanisms that were often employed in 3D to numb the pain that you are learning to face, embrace, welcome, and love. Perhaps a mass exodus of friends, family, and partnerships has given way to this multi-dimensional vision quest where, in the absence of relying on others for distraction or the need for constant reassurance or validation, you have been placed in an ‘in-between’ holding pattern where you get to face the sensations, memories, and feelings that cause you to numb your pain or hide your power in the hands of another person’s will.

This holding pattern, which acts as part of the initial big leap in the Ascension already unfolding, gives you an opportunity to transform your relationship with stillness– instead of feeling stuck, dis-empowered, or afraid of missing out when life stalls to a standstill. Here you are able to see how cleverly life is helping you transform familial patterns of enmeshment into new realities of empowerment, simply by changing your experience of stillness from the withdrawal of loneliness to the true autonomy and serenity of being one with all.

If this holding pattern energy feels more overwhelming than empowering, do not worry. It signifies a great cellular purge, where much like the pulling of a heavy anchor that allows a ship to set sail along its new and exciting voyage, your cellular body is emptying our reservoirs of outdated memories, limiting beliefs, and energies taken on from others all the way back to time spent in utero. The amount of energetic chord-cutting that has been occurring since the 12:12 Stargate opening truly illustrates how hard the Universe is working on your behalf to lighten the load as you begin quantum leaping from one level of reality to the next.

Signs that you have completed the chord-cutting process and emptied out the cellular debris of the great purge and are already making your way from 3D timelines into a new 5D reality include the following symptoms:

The requirement of more rest than normal, including disruptive sleep patterns, the inability to sleep deeply, along with exhaustion, fatigue, and confusion as to where you are in your path and where things are headed.

Heightened sensitivity to triggers, whether in yourself or others, with less drive or desire to be around those whose patterns can be felt in your empathic energy field.

Less desire for people, places, or things as a source of greater happiness, which can also include a lack of desire along with fears that you ‘should’ have something to desire. Often the desireless space, although temporary, signifies a shift from identifying with form to being the formless witness experiencing itself in body.

Lowered immune system function, such as adrenal fatigue, heightened food allergies, difficulties with digestion, as well as healing common colds or flus at a remarkably slower rate. This is due to the majority of your life force, or chi, being utilized to move you through Ascension, which leaves less energy for other areas to be balanced. The more willing you are to step into the unknown and trust the Ascension process, the less energy is needed to move you into 5D, so other subtle energy bodies can be offered greater support.
An absolute resignation with the state of the collective, whether stemming from environmental concerns, the threat of political elitism, or even too much time spent interpreting life through the eyes of conspiracy theories. Such insanity being viewed around you, and acted out by those around you, signifies the detox kickback of those who have spent so much time steeped in 3D belief constructs that they are fighting to stay in 3D, as if Ascension were an unfair eviction instead of an existential rescue mission.

A growing awareness of addiction patterning as the source of true human suffering.

A deep longing to return home, find your soul tribe, and be done with what appears to be an outdated and dying human paradigm.

As you come to see how many of these symptoms match your experience, it confirms the Ascension already taking place. It is important to note that life on Earth only appears to be the unfolding of Armageddon because the ego structure of the collective is so unaware of the process of spiritual evolution, it can’t help but fixate on all that is threatened to be lost, instead of seeing more open space being created for new spiritually-grounded realities to emerge. Simply put, the difference between Armageddon timelines and Ascension timelines is your level of awareness. And yet, both Ascension and Armageddon timelines are playing out within the same hypersphere of reality that we collectively call Planet Earth. This also helps you realize those on Armageddon timelines are experiencing the process of Ascension, but from a perspective of fear, lack, and scarcity, instead of an awareness of what is meant to dissolve so a truth greater than personal gains and losses can be received and anchored into form.

There will not be a time where you must part with loved ones on Armageddon timelines in order for you to Ascend. That is a widely-believed spiritual myth. Instead, there will be those in your life experiencing the same shifts you are, but from a space of fear, codependency, enmeshment, addiction, and self-absorption, who can only be supported by the light you shine when you’re leading by example, instead of trying to constantly change people to your liking.

Please remember, it only looks ‘crazy’ to the unconscious patterning that doesn’t know how to surrender, but is being surrendered by a Universe that can only accept the destiny of Earth’s conscious evolution. To assist you further in this initial leap of Ascension, it is a perfect time in your life’s journey to:

Surround yourself with those who cherish and respect you, instead of filling your life with people just to have bodies around you. Even if you are the only one able to respect your light, you are far better off filling your time with moments in nature, exercise, creative expression, and deeply-integrative spiritual practices than to fuel patterns of enmeshment or codependency as a way of hiding from feeling so alone.

Even if just for a few days at a time, take breaks from chasing news headlines or consuming fear-based “fake news” stories and conspiracy theories. During this time of Ascension, it isn’t a matter of how much you know, but how aligned you are with the highest wisdom you’ve already absorbed. If you sense a fear of being left behind, out of the loop, or a target for unconscious agendas, please know that it is your connection with Source, as the Holy Creator of all things, from one spectrum of consciousness to another that reveals your true sovereign safety, no matter the perceivable threats in view.

When in doubt, always remember: a threat is only as daunting and overpowering as your lack of connection to source. Equally so, it is the will of such dark forces to destroy the hiding spots most people live in to establish a connection in consciousness that ushers humanity along into the pre-destined grace and perfection of unity consciousness. Conspiracy theories can be intriguing like a mystery or horror film you can’t help but watch. And yet, no secret or agenda of the shadow can ever prevent or stop consciousness from expanding. This can help you remember your greatest strength, as the light of all, is in your willingness to change for the better and adapt to the contractions and expansions that serve as an energetic launching pad of your highest living potential. If you are always willing to change and aren’t too inconvenienced to adapt, there isn’t a threat or agenda that can reach your light or get anywhere close to you. Because the agenda of darkness is “control so not to be controlled” it wants absolutely nothing to do with someone whose light of adaptability shines so brightly.

Love yourself enough to bid farewell to long-standing addictions. Do not use self-love as a permissive way of allowing your ego to run your reality with compulsive choices that only make hungry ghosts more insatiable. Whether your addictive pattern is sugar, alcohol, sex, pornography, regular usage of plant medicine, recreational cannabis, binge watching movies or TV shows, or even too much inner spiritual work done from a fear-based perspective, may this be a time of reclaiming the power of your choice-making to fill your life with activities that empower your light versus entangling your ego through the false promise of instant gratification. It is important to remember, addiction is either: (1) over consumption of an external substance, a person, place, or thing used to numb pain or hide from facing deeper truths, or (2) substances that may not be an over-indulgence but are acted out with regular or reoccurring frequency.

At the depths of your soul, you truly know what is and isn’t in your highest alignment to choose. May this auspicious time of quantum leaping be an opportunity to act upon change, instead of merely thinking about the change the Universe is inspiring you to make. No matter how overwhelming it seems, I know you can do this. I so believe in you.

While I will be detailing more about the Ascension as it continues to unfold, today’s energy update is not a call to ascend, but to begin re-prioritizing your reality with greater energetic balance and emotional support in honor of the Ascension well under way.

Whether joining the Love Revolution for Total Integration, Project Resolution, attending a live event in-person, or watching via livestream, now is the time to unite as One and shine our light during the most monumental shift in consciousness this world is birthing.

From my heart to yours, we are in this together. No one can or will be left behind. But your participation is essential in order for the most miraculous versions of this Ascension to shift from ideas of Armageddon to a tangibly-lived reality of Heaven on Earth. I want this for you so deeply and with an outstretched hand, I invite you along a glorious path of love, truth, joy, revelation, and expansion.

As the Universe always says to me, “further instructions will follow.”

All for light. All for Life. All for love,

Matt Kahn

This brief  “rant” is to help the uninitiated understand why I love astrology. This love is illogical, unscientific, and 100 percent biased. Long before I owned an ephemeris or even knew such a thing existed, February was my favorite month of the year. Even though I don’t particularly love winter. Even though I was born in November. When I was a kid, most of my close friends were born within a few days of each other during the beginning of February. I met my teenage crush on February 1st and for a while considered it an unofficial holiday.  My first serious boyfriend was born on February 5th and one of my most magical romances began on Thursday, February 4th. (love the phonetic symmetry)

Once I began taking formal astrology classes and attending astrological lectures, I learned how to properly calculate my astrological chart ( the days before we had computers!!) . Then I discovered that I am an Aquarius Rising. It basically means that the sun enters my first house every year approximately between February 4th and February 6th. For the astrologers reading this, I approximate because I have altered my documented birth-time by a few minutes to correspond better with life events. No one is usually born at 1:00 pm on the dot!!

Why I am posting this ” rant” ? Because I am feeling the pre- ascendant energy take shape! I love the electricity that accompanies the transition from the 12th house to the 1st, the darkness to the light, the hidden to the brightly illuminated. It is truly a rebirth.

constellation Aquarius

Happy Birthday to all my  February Aquarius friends . Come celebrate the coolest shortest month on our calendar. And to those who don’t get astrology, pay attention to when you come back to life. It may surprise you!

1337

It’s a snowy sleepy Sunday and that is fine by me. A few birds came to visit on the terrace and this morning the bird feeders were the place to be fed and seen. I finally saw a few cardinals too. Happy Mercury in Aquarius retrograde season with February and Imbolc fast approaching. Many readers know I relish this time of year, but lately time is a blur. I often forget what day it is. Yet the snow set the scene of midwinter with the telltale signs of gradually shorter evenings and gradually longer daylight. Imbolc celebrates the movement towards spring and the Goddess Brigid. I hope you all are faring reasonably well. My Mercury surprise came a few days early when my newish laptop went bizarro. The keyboard has gone rogue with various keys typing incorrect characters or none at all. I am using my 2009 laptop now, which is very temperamental. I know I need to get a new PC, but will wait until this transit is over. I am grateful this one works at all. This particular transit relates to science, electronics, groups, and the future. I predict it will be interesting, especially with so many planets placed in Aquarius now.

A new year, a new milestone. WordPress told me I have 1337 followers now; apparently that is a thing! I actually have more than this figure counting Facebook folks, etc. I am grateful for every person who visits here. Thanks to everyone! Sometimes I still wonder what keeps people coming by. If you want to answer this query, let me know!

Does anyone remember my old post Timeless Tunes? I have a new song to add to my collection of time bending songs. My shower is often the place I feel closer to my higher self and spirit in general. Recently a song came to me in the shower that is featured on a macaroni and cheese commercial. The song is Only Time by the artist Enya.

It can be an ear-worm but the lyrics have an important message about the unpredictability of life and to be patient. It is also has a very soothing, almost angelic vibration. It reminds me to slow my mind, quell my worries, and let the stories play out. With so much still uncertain in my life, this is a challenge. Yet I am thankful for the good in my life and what I am manifesting in the now.

These prisms images above were discovered a few weeks ago. I caught the light dancing on the living room closet and was awestruck. I quickly wondered how often I miss these spots of beauty in plain sight. Life seems random but it is tailored to one’s imprinting, attitude, vibratory frequency, and akashic record. However we make choices that advance the journey across time and space. I have noticed a barrage of synchronicities occurring between my thoughts or words and the “outside world” ( tv, internet, email, music, etc) I am no closer to understanding the purpose, but someone wise told me it has to do with the environment mirroring my internal world. It is also possible that spending so much time at home with devices at the ready has amped up these synchs.  In any case I thought it was an opportune occasion to introduce you to another Tom Montalk video. This is his take on synchronicity and it is so detailed and thorough. Of course it contained a major synch for me during my initial viewing. Surprise, surprise right? This reminds me of the line of a poem I wrote in my late teens: Time is moving like a song.  I cannot recall the rest of this poem but like this line because it encapsulates most of what I have written about today: Seasons, holidaze, synchronicities, a song about time, and statistics based on accrual of time. Enjoy the video, enjoy your day, enjoy each breath, behold the light.

Shine Bright

I honestly worried aplenty yesterday about Uranus stationing direct and applying to a square with Mercury Jupiter and Saturn. I stayed inside and laid lower than usual. Especially with Pluto conjunct the sun at the same time. Surprisingly, my world was not rocked. That’s the thing about Uranus. Sometimes the surprise is there is no surprise and nothing happens. With Uranus in Taurus there could have been earthquakes, financial disasters, food recalls, climate atrocities, etc. I am grateful that I experienced just another day in Pandemic USA. All  planets are direct now, but this is NOT the time to pursue new ventures. The astro weather is stormy and Mercury will station retrograde before January ends.

Lately I have been avoiding meditation and outdoor walks. This is due in part to feeling too antsy to be still and too foggy to get moving. I have been sleeping much longer though with more vivid dreams. I woke up angry this morning from a dream involving a betrayal by my sister. It took me a minute to realize that I did not have to carry this energy into my day.

On a brighter note, I have taken to communion with two archangels, Michael and Raphael.  Michael offers protection and Raphael offers healing. I ask them to appear to me during the day and their track record is pretty good. Michael has been showing up on a blog I follow. Yesterday they both showed up together in a homework assignment for my Seurat class. I enjoy experimenting with novel ways to  anchor in Spirit. Yet sometimes I forget about the light inside of me. While doing Reiki is a good reminder, sometimes it is not enough to sustain me. Lorie’s short video reminds us of the simple power inherent in our light. She cuts to the chase and her message cleared away some cobwebs that were accumulating within me.

We our energetic beings whether we believe it or not. That is the beauty of this gift. We are fortunate to be so  much more than flesh. However most of us were not taught about the beauty and the power of our divinity. But we can begin again, every day, hour, minute, second, nanosecond. Source is fine with reinvention. I have been working on kindness. I am spending more spiritual capital on telling people that I care, showing encouragement, and extending genuine compliments and praise. I want to give others what I would want to receive. It feels good and it costs nothing. I hope my remarks are received as sincere but that is none of my business. I am responsible for my actions and intentions. We all have to be accountable for our behaviors. That is what the younger folks call “adulting”. I call it being in integrity.

As I navigate the chaos in my country, I wish more people cared about accountability and integrity. So many are acting out, due to fear, greed, lack of power, or ignorance ( or a combination of any of these elements.) I do empathize. I am in no position to judge. It is sad to see so much darkness in plain sight. But that is the mission of the lightworker. Sometimes I forget what I signed up for. Lorie helps me remember so I can be kinder and more patient with myself and the collective. So let’s shine bright. Even Uranus would approve!

This 2020 Reflections post is part of the Litebeing’s Change Challenge with the theme: How have you changed internally? Can you share some new thoughts, ideas, projects, attitudes that have sprung up as a result of your evolution (of the past year of 2020)?

Click below for audio version

I can safely say that this past year, this year of the Corona virus, and of political and social unrest, my dragon has dredged up some deep inner issues. One of which was a physical issue that has been both terrifying and humbling.

One that sent my mind into fear, anger and hopelessness.

Trudging Through The Revolution

Yesterday was my ,ahem, 60th birthday. Today Democracy was salvaged and Fascism averted. What will top these events tomorrow?

I am not prepared to post any new material yet, but want to reblog this post about my city, my country, and what it means to evolve as spirit in human form in this now moment. I pray for reset, unity, and reconciliation on this precious planet. Can we find a way to see light in every living creation? May separation be healed and the New Earth take hold.

litebeing chronicles

According to Webster’s dictionary, Revolution is the action by a celestial body of going round in an orbit or elliptical course,  completion of a course (as of years), a sudden, radical, or complete change, and a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something a change of paradigm.

I like how all the different meanings coalesce and vibe off each other. Time and movement can inform change in action and in philosophy. The times we live in now show us how history impacts the present and how different perspectives inform the shifting of our future.

It is not an accident that a Lunar Eclipse is occurring this year on America’s birthday. While the entire planet is in major transition, so many look to the US for answers. The US or ” us ” is a hot mess right now, but has been for many decades…

How to Navigate These Surreal Times

 

” You gotta learn how to zig when you wanna zag. ”  Wise words from my former  supervisor at the rehab where I worked. I use them all the time, talking myself down when I feel powerless in handling a situation. Most people would not call me flexible and when someone does, I feel like I have made a significant change. WP just gave me a good scare to reinforce the theme of today’s blog, acting as a catalyst for change. Some readers know I am not all that tech savvy. I  find it miraculous that I learned how to blog mostly on my own. But when WP unceremoniously switched me today to the Block Editor,  I was really stuck. After trying to figure it out , I became quite overwhelmed. Then I began to go into crisis mode, but  I went over to my reader and saw that the first blog in the feed was entitled Trust. That was my sign not to give up. I eventually found a way, albeit possibly temporarily, to still blog in Classic Mode. I also saw how fast my thoughts deteriorated into a catastrophic storyline.

Saturn

Saturn, pictured above, recently stationed direct on September 29th, signaling a return to progress and form. Let’s say this statement comes with some fine print. 2020 has been prophesied by many astrologers as a major game changer and the month ahead is no exception. Saturn and Pluto ( who stationed direct today October 4th) moving forward bodes well in general. But both planets are still dancing together with Jupiter in Capricorn and will be making several challenging squares to Mars retrograde in Aries and Sun in Libra. The encouraging news is that even with Mercury retrograding soon , all of the traditional malefics ( Mars, Saturn, and Pluto ) are in cardinal signs. Cardinal energy adds action and enthusiasm and agency, and we could all use that about now.

Pluto

These energies are very powerful and transformative. I have the big 3 ( Pluto Saturn and Jupiter) currently transiting my 12th house, which does not bode well for optimism, but does favor subconscious attitude readjustment. It also improves the connection with all that is nonsensory and energetic. I am happy to report that I have completed my Reiki I training. There is still much to absorb but I am really glad I achieved this goal. I am also excited that my art class begins on Tuesday. In addition I was able to manifest two job interviews this week that allow working remotely from home. It is possible that my high from completing my attunement and getting the interviews caused a flare up of my GI troubles. It is interesting that I recently read how Mars retrograde can cause health flare ups, which makes sense to me with natal Mars in the 6th house of health. Or it could have been faulty thinking that led to a setback. Or both.  Or neither.

Today I am feeling improved and excited for the first interview tomorrow. I am a bit out of practice, but I will remind myself how much I have to offer. Speaking of which, a recent email heading tonight eased my mind. The title said Offers Are Coming Your Way.  Well, how about that? This synch is quite encouraging!

I subscribe more and more to the importance of paying attention to one’s thought patterns and the outside environment. Mindfulness and gratitude have helped me cultivate more patience and hope. This doesn’t mean I am completely unaffected by the shitshow in my country for which the word surreal can seem insufficient.  I just don’t have a better word in my vocabulary so surreal will have to do.  Yet, I am learning to surrender more and more. I recommend mindfulness, meditation, anger reduction, and exercise as ways to improve resilience and focus. All practices are not for everyone so your mileage may vary. Astrology is not a panacea that will solve all conflicts but it can point one in the right direction.

 

Please send me some love for this coming week as many changes are in play. While I am becoming more adept at coping with this tumultuous year, I am still a work in progress. Just don’t mess with the Classic Editor because I don’t want to zigzag right off the rails. I just love blogging for all of you way too much.

Can’t We All Get Along?

Can’t we all get along? This is a famous quote spoken by Rodney King whose brutal attack by police in 1992 sparked the Los Angeles Riots. Sometimes it seems little has changed, but I know better. As the Equinox approaches with the Sun entering Libra, thoughts of equality, justice, civility, relationship and harmony all weigh heavily on my heart.

There is light at the end of the pier, tunnel, and within all hearts. I consider myself a passionate person who has tempered some of this energy as I have matured. Yet my passion has been quite stirred on social media lately when it comes to the division around politics, COVID-19, belief systems, and the push to “take a side.” I have had to be more cautious on Facebook and even here on my beloved WP. I have lost some readers and followers because of my opinions. Have any of you experienced this too?

I work so hard to not react, or better yet, react with kindness and compassion. My opinions and beliefs continue to evolve and I think this is a good thing. What bothers me the most is the cruelty displayed online, especially by those who call themselves spiritual. So many of these beliefs and actions have a high stakes quality because decisions made can cost human life and affect the planet in so many negative ways. Life was so much simpler when I was a teenager or young adult and was so sure I knew everything, so full of myself, ha!

Athena

I hate having to worry about censoring myself around people I consider to be my friends. Sometimes I just avoid a post, Meme or comment and simply move on. I am not that interested in convincing anyone to take my side. I just feel such sadness about how many lives have been lost or hurt due to this cancerous division that has taken over our universe. Some choices are deadly and the intensity keps amping up.

As always, I look for guidance, usually within , through mindfulness, meditation, writing, walking and now- by practicing Reiki on myself and my environment. I know I cannot be hurt by anyone and that no-thing is truly personal. But it still can sting. So I am sharing another Lorie Ladd video that I found helpful.

While I do not adhere to all of Lorie’s belief systems, I know her heart. She is gentle, sincere, and real. She also does her best to welcome diversity of ideas within her community. This video explains her current take on the energies as guided by and through the Galactic Federation of Light. It is so interesting that I find so much diversity within the Spiritual community; never before have I witnessed such division and negativity. Let me know how you see this phenomenon in the comments. Can we agree to disagree without “cancelling each other” ?  I hope so.

Peace Arises, Naturally

It has been about 2 months since I took pictures while walking outside. I was a bit surprised to learn it has been this long. But as I have stated often, my neighborhood has been less inviting as strangers have hijacked it to get to the park. I am a HSP ( highly sensitive person) with a crabby, cranky, moody Mars in Cancer who rather avoid conflict than swim in murky waters. But the weather has been cooler and I know I need to move this body more so I took a walk yesterday, bringing my phone with me. I want you to know I have not been totally locked in for 6 months. While I was most cautious in the beginning, I go for a drive about 2-3 times a week and also leave my home to do laundry and take out the trash. I prefer fall weather and am setting a goal to move around more.

I have been making small changes recently that I know are good for my well being. I have begun letting go of small battles I have been waging , all about money. I have concluded that the amount of money or even the principle behind the issue are not as important as my peace of mind. I keep reminding myself I do not have to think about these issues again. I have invested way too much energy in matters that do not truly matter. I suspect there are more of these remaining if I choose to delve deeper. Lorie Ladd and others have said that Gaia is already firmly in 5D frequency. Lorie suggested by going outside one can feel into the peace. So I went out yesterday ( and briefly today) to do a little energetic detective work. Here are some more shots from yesterday’s walk. Please note that my focus is primarily color and use of light.

I cannot honestly say what 5D feels like, but I sensed an expansion and peace that was very comforting and loving. I have had numerous transcendent experiences such as OOB, lucid dreams, etc, but cannot distinguish between the differing frequencies. All I know is that being out in nature or simply gazing at nature is lighter than not doing so.

Please consider joining me and others in my current blogging challenge so we can all be together in this ever -shifting wave of new discoveries and re-membrance of our divinity.

Art is My Medicine ~ Follow the Thread

pub domain barnesfoundation.org
Woman With Umbrella, Washington Square

It all began with setting an intention to receive a symbol from Source. The other day ( was it yesterday?) I asked for a carriage. Today I was curious about viewing Barnes Takeout Art Talk on YouTube and chose the Glackens piece above because of the pastel colors and soft lines. Later on the video I noticed a horse drawn carriage on the upper left hand side. Yes! I exclaimed, here’s my sign!

Glackens was an impressionist painter from Philadelphia and a close friend of Albert Barnes. This piece is described as both an sketch and a painting and I am quite taken with it. The carriage is just a bonus.

When I examine my current take on my spiritual journey, I strive to bring it to down to basics. There is so much noise “out there” and my soul relies on simplicity and silence. Where do I stand on Ascension, QAnon, WayFair, The US presidential election, and so much more? How does any of this connect to finding a fulfilling job that I can see as part of my evolving career? I keep following the thread. I may be entertained by a belief system or teacher or pundit. Lord knows I spend so much time reading, viewing, listening ( via my new love Audible), and processing overwhelming amounts of data. I know that the limits of my senses will not give me answers, nor will my attachment to a particular teacher or personality outside of my self. It has to go deeper. It does not have to feel comfortable but it has to feel authentically true. That is the work of my higher self to reveal to my embodied human self.

I used to be so decisive but lately I work diligently to take in multiple points of view. It is no secret that we are failing as a people and that life does not have to be so hard for so many. That much I am sure of. The different terms and labels do not clarify anything for me.  Words ( and as a writer I am fond of words) fall short of eliciting meaning from socio-political-psycho-spiritual constructs. They only add more fog to the mix.

So I am going to showcase a few more from the Glackens archives and keep following a thread until it leads me somewhere that pops in my soul. Until when the next thread arrives, and so on.

Let’s keep creating and supporting each other, irregardless of the temporary opinions we espouse at any given moment. If you are for love and hope and restoring light, we got this!
