How to Mentally Clean your Auras

by Lynn Claridge – 

How to remove the stresses and strains that everyday life can bring.
There are 7 layers in our auras. When we use meditation and try to ‘clean’ it, we have to clean every layer. Many new age mystics just tell you imagine and visualize a white light coming down and engulfing your auras, this sometimes doesn’t work well. I usually clean every layer as I go along.
To Mentally Clean your Auras start by doing some kind of relaxation procedure like counting 1 to 10 or say to yourself, upstairs, downstairs, over and over again until you feel bored and sleepy or you can get some relaxation music to help you get to alpha or theta brain states.
Once you done that, mentally say to yourself and quote; ‘I am at level 1’ and move your awareness from head to toe or vice versa, the idea is to scan your level 1 for blockages, once you sense ‘something there’ move your awareness to it, it should ‘melt’ or disperse.
If it is still there, try breathing it colors, you have to experiment with the color that will remove the block, repeat the same procedure with all other level, e.g. I am level 2, I am in Level 3…
When you say this, you are telling your mind to adjust to the next level using intent; Intent is the force that changes the level. Sometimes if you are at level 1, and you sense something 1 feel in front of you and you cannot get it off, and you try the usual color breathing method, This could be due to the fact that this blockage is actually at some other level e.g. Level 3 and you can usually remove the block if you move your awareness to level 3. 
Sometimes when you move your awareness into the blockages, you get ‘impression’ like a past event or sometimes it plays like a movie in your mind’s eye; this is usually the reason for the block.
The stresses and strains of everyday life can bring with it a variety of emotional health problems. These can include depression, anxiety, insomnia, irritability and panic attacks.

Potential problems and suggested solutions to overcome them


Depression
I am sure that we all become depressed at different times of our life, I certainly do. It is easy to let things and people get us down. We can start to feel sorry for ourselves and to think that the world is working against us.
The brain has two halves, positive and negative. In these periods of depression the negative side assumes control and it can become very hard to get out of this rut.
I see the positive side of my brain as an apple and the negative side as a pear. If I only ever eat pears, I will not be able to experience the joy of eating apples. In short I have to give the positive side a chance to help me to reach a state of happiness and I need to learn to ignore the negative.
Anxiety and panic attacks
At times people start becoming anxious about their future or even about their present situation. This can in certain cases even lead on to panic attacks.
In my opinion worrying does not help the situation, it only makes things worse. I have to say that I do worry and that the cloud of doom does descend over my life at regular intervals. When this occurs I try very hard to break the cycle and I even talk to the demons in my head. I have a battle of wills with them. I tell them that they will not win and that I will not stress anymore. This is not that simple but is what I try to do.
Insomnia
Having trouble with sleeping at night can happen for a number of reasons, the main one of which is stress. Other causes are snoring, an intake of too much caffeine, a noisy environment or depression.
I have written about stress and depression already, it is also time to cut down on the coffee. A simple suggestion in potentially solving insomnia, is to read a book in bed before attempting to get to sleep. This book should help you to get your mind away from any anxieties you may have, it should relax your body and should also tire your eyes.
Irritability
When people lose sleep or work to hard they can become over tired and this can lead to irritability. This can cause people to have a higher pulse rate, making their muscles feel tight and can leave people also feeling anxious and lethargic.
It is important to therefore ensure that you obtain a good amount of hours sleep per night (at least seven) and that you only work a certain amount of hours per week. Money is important to people, however in my opinion health should be the priority.
Solutions to these emotional health problems
I have come to realize that I need to treat myself from time to time. I have always found it difficult to relax and would often feel stressed and under pressure.
I now use various methods at different times of the year to help me to chill out a bit and to reward my body. These include aroma therapy, using herbal products, attending tai chi lessons and I have even tried Yoga. I must admit I could never get to grips with Yoga, however have heard it can prove to be very beneficial to people who can.
Meditation
My favorite form of relaxation is by meditating. I do this by sitting on a straight back chair and by basically concentrating with my eyes closed. I pay particular notice to my breathing and it has certainly helped me to see things in a much clearer way.
In conclusion there are many ways of reducing emotional health problems and with determination you are able to see your way to a better and brighter future. Keep your auras clean and you will have a better healthy life.

Clairvoyant, Clairaudient and Empathic Troubleshooting

by Krishanti Wahla –

3 Common Psychic Development Problems and Solutions

We are all psychic and we are all intuitive. Everyone has the ability to access some degree of clairvoyance in order to gain a deeper level of understanding and meaning – it just takes a little time, effort, focus and patience with the whole process.
Clairvoyance means clear seeing and involves letting your imagination show you pictures as a way of explaining things. Clairaudience means clear hearing and involves hearing messages as guidance. Empathy or clairsentience, means clear feeling, in the form of sensations that tell you about certain people or situations.
Many who are just beginning to tap into their psychic abilities have a hard time interpreting the information that comes through, and this is where a lot of patience is required.
Psychic info can be tough to decipher, because the very notion of interpretation leads you down the path of analysis, which forces you to use the logical side of your brain to make sense of the information that the imaginative side of your brain is intuiting.
That logical side of the brain loves to label psychic information as ridiculous, un-trustworthy, and weird. But being psychic about something really means letting go of control and trusting that what comes through makes sense on some level, even if it’s not immediately apparent.
Here are 3 common problem areas when it comes to understanding the messages you’re receiving and how to work with/around them.
Problem:

When tuning in to gather information on an issue or problem, clairvoyant images pop up that seem totally random and make no sense.
Solution:

If the random images you see are troubling and bothersome, take action and either destroy them by blowing them up on your screen or send them off into outer space or another realm where they disappear.

If the images don’t bother you but just don’t make sense, record them in a notebook so that you can come back to them later. Often, images that seemingly make no sense end up making complete sense later on – we just need the present moment to catch up to them. From my experience, it’s the images that seem to make no sense at all that end up making the most sense of all.

Problem:

Clairaudient messages (which typically come through as thoughts, not as external voices talking to you) aren’t reliable. One day you’ll be certain you’re hearing that you need to turn off the iron but when you go to check it, it’s already off. Another day, you’ll hear that your friend is going to cancel at the last minute and sure enough, she does.
Solution:

When first working with clairaudience, it takes a lot of people time to sense the guided messages from the regular mental OCD-type messages. I believe the OCD-type messages are just your ego mind throwing up some resistance into the mix. Many people I’ve worked with have told me they always have a running conversation going on with themselves and have done so for as long as they can remember.

So, imagine how that self you’re always talking to feels when suddenly this running conversation isn’t good enough for you anymore and you’re only tuning into guided or higher-self messages? It takes time and effort to distinguish true guidance from self-talk but what you will notice is that the more enlightened clairaudient messages tend to be really calm, strong, quiet and clear. Non-enlightened messages from your ego mind tend to sound worried, long-winded or shallow.

Problem:

You get a bad feeling or feel anxious or nervous about a person or situation for some reason but you don’t know why.

Solution:

Take it from me; being empathic seems more of a curse than a gift, because it’s extremely hard to feel something in your physical body and then try and figure out if it’s from you, the person next to you or the client you’re going to be seeing in an hour. Sometimes you have to just wait for the person or situation to reveal itself to you and when it does, the feeling you had dissipates. If you don’t want to wait, however, you can first just put your hand over your solar plexus chakra and ask, “Why am I feeling like this?” and wait to see what type of guidance you receive either through instant knowing, clairvoyance, or clairaudience.

You can also just sit for a moment and think about the major areas of or people in your life and do a clairvoyant test to see which one of these it is. For instance, create a symbol for your work and then ask, “Am I feeling bad because there’s something going on at work?” and see what you get. Or, think about the people in your life and notice if you feel worse when focusing on someone in particular. Then, use your clairvoyant skills to see what/why you’re sensing this.

If you are working on developing your psychic skills and are looking for a community to practice with, I recommend checking out my teacher Debra Katz’s online group, Seventh Sight, which is comprised of a community of like-minded people working to expand and develop their intuitive skills. Also, remember – the key to getting the most out of your psychic abilities is to quiet your mind. This meditation I recorded will help – memorize it, and run through it every time you sit down to work on a problem you’d like your intuition to tackle, and you’ll notice a difference.

Accessing Our Sacred Inner Gifts

 by Wes Annac –

Consciousness is expanding on earth like never before and we’re being given an endless amount of guidance and advice about this expansion and our entrance into a higher state of awareness. Gradually, everyone’s beginning to become aware of the reality of our existence and as we do, we seek to reclaim the deeper perception we’ve always had the ability to access.

Spiritual awareness will help us see the reality around us in a whole new way as we welcome the entrance of the light into our perspective and every worry and concern will fade when our greatest expansions take place and we feel the spiritual warmth set in.

Expansion will entail a lifting of the oppressive weight that’s held us down for so long here in the lower dimensions and this is why a growing number of seekers strive to expand as much as they can. Everyone deserves to become aware of the reality of spirit, and with our efforts, nobody will go without a spiritual understanding.
Nobody will have to miss out on the greatest and most profound truths that wait for us to remember them and as long as we start getting active in raising awareness, the consciousness of the planet will grow with increased rapidity.
Our evolution progresses based on what we do in every moment, and if we use as much time and energy as possible to inform and uplift others, we’ll raise the planetary consciousness in a much quicker timeframe than we would if we remained idle.

The cultivation of awareness is a very important part of our evolution, because we can’t shine our light on things we aren’t aware of. Most people naturally want to raise awareness about the paradigm-expanding things they learn and this makes our effort to sow political and spiritual awareness crucial.

As we’ll learn, our rising consciousness will entail heightened spiritual gifts that we’ll have earned by the work we put in to reach a higher vibration, and our effort to spread awareness will help these gifts flow in a pure and intensified way.
Spreading awareness is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and for humanity and there are plenty of ways we can inform and uplift others. Some of us might feel inclined to write; others might play music; some might become activists. No matter what method you use, your effort is very important.
You can serve humanity whether or not you feel inspired by the divine flow that eventually helps everyone find and pursue their greatest passion. There’s a unique role waiting for each of us, even those of us who don’t feel valuable to the earth’s ascension at all and opening up to the divine will help us discover our gifts and talents.
We’ll rediscover exactly what we’re meant to do to help others become aware when we open up to our greater perception and the latent gifts we hold within, and our evolutionary experience will be much easier and more enjoyable when we find our passion and flow with divinely inspired work that’s intended to uplift.

Following suit with the usual format, I’d like to examine some of the wonderful material our channeled sources have given us about the expansion taking place. It’d take report after report to cover all of the information they’ve given, but I’ll do my best to cover some of what’s been said here with appreciation for the vastness of the material out there.
This is one of many important subjects that have been addressed by independent channels and we’ll dive into the material with a quote from SaLuSa via Mike Quinsey about our increasing telepathy and intuition.
“As the vibrations begin to lift upon Earth some of you will find that your psychic powers increase, and that generally you are becoming more intuitive. It will help you to decide what to do when faced with a number of choices, and you will be able to go forward with confidence.” (1)
Our intuition can help us through important situations, and without it and its gentle yet powerful nudges, a lot of difficult circumstances could leave us stumped. The intuition always seems to be there when we need it most, but we have to attune to its ‘voice’ within.

To do this, we have to learn to start listening to it – to follow its nudges. It could be difficult at first, especially if what it’s nudging us toward is different from what our ego wants but with time and practice, listening to it will become much easier. As we practice, we’ll find that our mind and heart-centered telepathic abilities increase as well.

According to Archangel Michael via Ronna Herman, our increasing telepathic ability will make our integrity more essential than it already is. Nothing’s hidden in the light of the higher dimensions, and everything is seen, known, felt, and understood.
“As everyone’s telepathic and clairsentience skills are perfected, you will understand why truth, honor and integrity will become paramount.

“We are aware of the Light patterns that you emit, and also the resonance of your energetic signature, whether it is harmonious or discordant. We see your radiance or lack thereof, and you cannot hide who you truly are from us. In the near future, this gift will become the norm for many advanced Light Workers as well.” (2)
We’ll perceive ourselves and each other in a much deeper sense than we do now, and needless to say, the lower qualities that’ve secretly kept the world in motion will be exposed and understood for what they really are.
An increased collective perception will herald an illumination of darkness in every form, and we’ll eventually re-reach the perspective our guides possess – one of seeing and knowing everything in the light of Source. Personally, I look forward to knowing the people and guides around me in such a deep, harmonious way.

Mother Mary through Fran Zepeda encourages us to expand our perception of who we are and what we’re capable of, because we’re endowed with far more talent and love than we yet understand.
“So I ask of you dear ones, please keep opening up to your possibilities and your gifts as you explore the expansion that you are enjoying now, with no limits and no preconceived ideas.

“The more you let go and open to the possibilities of this New Light, the more you will progress along the path of deep awareness and experience of your rich inner worlds of Divinity. The more you surrender to it, the more you will experience the sweet music of grace and purity within you.” (3)
We have to be willing to surrender our limited perception of ourselves and understand that we’re divine beings who are capable of doing miraculous things to unlock the depth and richness of our developing higher-dimensional perception. If we’re willing to believe we’re capable of superhuman feats, we’ll achieve them without question.

If we could only understand our immense power, we’d be able to work away like never before on the awakening of humanity and the restoration of our beautiful planet.

This planet was once a glimmering celestial body that boasted fully conscious societies, and with our efforts, we’ll return her surface to this condition.

We’ll return our society to the brimming state of consciousness that was once prevalent, and in doing so, we’ll enable other planets and civilizations to experience the expansion and evolution we’re currently experiencing. Isn’t it interesting to think that we’re affecting the entire planet and all of creation with our actions on the earth?
Speaking through Elizabeth Ayres Escher, Mother Mary also encourages us not to worry if we don’t initially grasp some of the greater concepts we’re starting to remember.
“Do not fret, dear ones, if your logical mind cannot yet grasp these concepts, as the left side of the brain was designed to allow you to function while in a constrained environment. That playground has now expanded to incorporate hitherto unseen worlds that have always existed side by side with your own physical world.” (4)
The higher realms have always been right here with us, but we’ve existed under a lower-dimensional filter that’s temporarily blocked our perception of these realms. We’ve come here to learn and grow in a constricted environment, and our experience would have no substance if we were automatically able to perceive the amazing realms beyond.

We have to thrive under the limitation of the earth before we can greet the higher realms and for the purpose of growth and learning, we’ve willingly taken on the veil of forgetfulness we’re now piercing as we learn so much new and interesting information.

We still have far more to learn before we pierce it for good but with all of the things we’re learning already, I think it’s safe to say that we’re making progress. We’ve done a lot of significant things to help humanity evolve so far, but to continue expanding, we have to keep striving to raise consciousness and awareness.

Mother Mary then reminds us that we’re becoming much more than we yet realize. Our ongoing evolution is taking us into new and unknown territory, and we’re encouraged to continuously expand our perception of ourselves.
“Now you will begin to find the doors between the worlds being opened up so you may step through them. Allow your image of what constitutes ‘self’ [to] expand as more and more of your ‘pieces’ of greater Self settle into your etheric and physical bodies. You are in the process of becoming more than what you have appeared, to both yourself and to others.” (5)
We’re expanding in every way, but despite what we’ve already learned, we still have a lot of growing to do. We have to be willing to accept that we’re far more than we’ve been programmed to believe if we want to experience the greatest perceptual gifts the divine has to offer, and in my opinion, instilled limitation is a mental poison that’s been used to keep the common person from acting on their true potential.
Individually, we’re pretty powerful but collectively we can do far more than we give ourselves credit for. If everyone teamed up with a collective understanding of our power and the weight we carry, we could easily take this planet back in the name of the light and build the fair and just society we talk so much about.
It’d be pretty easy to claim independence from the cabal’s rule if we were all united in the cause but unfortunately, complacency has replaced motivation and kept us too busy with trivial things to care about holding them accountable or restoring the plant. The conscious public is tasked with changing this, among plenty of other things and nothing stops us from getting to work but ourselves.
The Sirians via Elizabeth Ayres Escher tell us about the foggy unawareness that’s stopped us from connecting with our family beyond, as well as the collective awakening taking place and the increased abilities that come with it.
“For many thousands of years it has been difficult for your off-world relatives to contact you, as your ears have been stopped up by false beliefs and overpowered by the desire of your rational mind to discount all things existing outside the parameters set by your five physical senses.

“Now that the planet has succeeded in reaching a certain level of frequency, the way stands open for many to begin to suddenly awaken, as a whole new set of meta-senses comes online… clairsentience, clairaudience, clair-cognizance, telepathy and many gifts that are naturally the birthright of the human race.” (6)
As we break through the rigid mental structures that’ve taught us to discount anything that can’t be physically studied, we open up to the deeper gifts and revelations we’ve forgotten about. In doing so, we’ll enable everyone to experience the heightened gifts that come with a purer state of consciousness.
I can only imagine what it’ll be like when everyone’s aware of the reality of their existence and starts cultivating the immense abilities they rediscover. I can foresee a lot of workshops geared toward helping people develop their abilities, but ultimately, the best guidance and advice comes from within.

Opening up to the guidance of the heart is the best thing we can do for ourselves because it gives us specific guidance that pertains to us personally. We can only learn so much from another person and at the end of the day, the energy and advice within is the best and most valuable.

Especially when it comes to expanding and developing our abilities, we’ll benefit most from finding and maintaining an active spiritual connection.The Constant Companions via Aisha North urge us to wake up from our instated slumber so we can access our greater, dormant gifts.
“So that is why we say go within, and do so with the intent of one that is actively seeking the greatness that has been lying dormant there for eons.

“For you are like Sleeping Beauty, someone who has been kept sedated for such a long time, it can take forever to wake up again. But wake up you must, for in order to face the future, you must have removed those last vestiges of induced sleep from your own being.” (7)
Moving beyond the weary ego can be pretty difficult, but it’s essential if we want to unlock our greatest perceptual gifts.We have to fill ourselves with the livelihood that enables us to embrace the challenges that come with evolving instead of hiding away from them, and from what we’ve learned so far, it seems as if moving beyond the ego is the absolute best thing we can do for ourselves.
The tricks of the mind can make our ascension process difficult if we continue to let them dismay us, and only by completely moving beyond their influence can we access the heart space and develop our endless abilities. These abilities might initially surprise us because of their paradigm-expanding nature, but eventually, we’ll accept that we truly are capable of using them.
Our growing connection with Source will cause an endless refinement of our higher-dimensional abilities, and we can take the first step in developing them by moving beyond the mind and into the fullness of the open heart.

The Constant Companions also tell us that awakening from our slumber can be uncomfortable at first because of the knowledge we gain and the sensations we feel.

“It can feel uncomfortable at first, much like the sensation when blood returns to a limb that has been numbed down for a while. But remember, all of these ‘needles and pins’ you will experience on the way are truly a sign of you finally waking up.

“For that is what this whole process is all about, waking up to the fact that you are a far more powerful being than what you have thought yourself to be, and as such, the process can very much be likened to a patient who has been in coma for years, suddenly coming to.” (8)
A lot of people are awakening in a very rapid manner, and this can cause some confusion followed by an open embrace of our abilities. We’ll continue to grow and develop from here, and if we’re actively vested in pursuing a greater perception, we’ll accelerate the process and make it much more enjoyable.

We’re certainly going to enjoy developing our abilities and every step up the ladder will be more blissful than the last. We’ll learn to create in interesting and amazing ways and the dreariness that’s accompanied the earth for so long will be replaced with enthusiasm to actively explore the states of consciousness opening up for us.

I envision a revolution of awakening, multidimensional souls who actively and excitedly develop their abilities but it can only be started if we begin exploring what we’re capable of now.

We’re then told that getting used to our greater perception will become easier with time and practice.
“And so it will be a period of bewilderment and confusion for you all, for you will need to get acquainted with that ‘new abode’ of yours we referred to in an earlier message. Remember, you have left that old and cramped flat behind, and now, you inhabit far more spacious living quarters than before, and one that has a whole new set of rooms with which you need to get acquainted with.” (9)
We have to become familiar with our greater perception before we can all-out feel it, and if we were suddenly whisked away to the fifth dimension, we might be overwhelmed and wishing we could go back to the comfortable lower spheres to continue our growth as its intended to be experienced.
Some of us might even feel uncomfortable in the fourth dimension, and it’s essential that we experience the steady yet rapid growth we’ve planned to experience. Awareness and enlightenment are wonderful things, but they have to be earned; they can’t just be effortlessly attained.
Electra Osara via Natalie Glasson tells us about the clarity our ‘refreshing breeze’ of awareness will bring to us.
“This vibration akin to a refreshing breeze will bring clarity and softness to the energetic structures of your mind. The mind and mental body when its focus is locked upon the 3rd dimensions can contain rigid and hard energetic patterns making it difficult to move beyond consciousness already obtained.

“As the rigidity of the energetic patterns dissolves, the mind and mental body are able to breathe, freely expanding in order to collect and process new consciousness and understanding.” (10)
We can’t let the mind’s woes keep us down, and if we do, we’ll solidify the energy we’re giving out and make it harder to receive the divine flow. The divine is all around and waits for us to pick up on and understand it, but it’s essential that we meet it on a higher level by moving beyond the influence of the discouraging and disparaging ego.
As Electra Osara tells us below, the help our guides are giving is intended to soften the density that fogs our perception so we can feel the divine flow in an easier way.
“As we plant the pure love of our consciousness into your mind our gift and purpose is to soften the influence of the physical dimension upon your mind, therefore you are more easily able to project freely flowing experience into your reality rather than limited or restrictive experience.” (11)

Our guides are helping soften the negativity around us so we’re better able to feel the energy descending down, and we can welcome their assistance when we open up to its reality.

They’re here to help us re-find the divine and move beyond the constraint and limitation of the lower mind, and I think we owe it to ourselves and them to open up to their guidance.

We owe it to ourselves because they have a lot of important things to tell us, and we owe it to them because they’ve worked pretty hard to help us become aware. They’re working to help us remember that everything’s truly ok and that we don’t have to succumb to the mind-centered stress that keeps us down, and personally, I’ve found this guidance very helpful.
Our vibration will continue to rise as we’re introduced to various things that’ll expand our definition of what reality is and can be, and our efforts to steadily cultivate a higher vibration are important to our development and that of the people around us.
Our efforts to connect with our guides raise our vibration and the awareness of the planet, and for this reason, getting out of our minds is essential.
We have a lot of important and inspired work to do in this new era of heightened awareness, and our divine abilities will become clearer and clearer as our awareness grows to new and unexpected heights. Let’s keep at our efforts to re-find the divine and the abilities that come with it, because we’re destined to change the world.

Self Mastery Metamorphosis

1066679347_m
Did you play on a see-saw as a child? Growing up, my little brother and I spent hours pushing each other up and down on this playground apparatus. And our game went like this… We would take turns holding each other up in the air while one of us weighted the board down in the dirt – until that got boring; or we would see if we could hold the see-saw still and balance each other- until that got boring; or we would just see-saw up and down – until that got boring.
It never failed – the see-saw, like the swings and the merry-go-round in our neighborhood park, got boring pretty quickly. No matter how ‘differently’ we tried to get it to behave, or how creative we were with our imagination, the see-saw just went up and down. It was true to its nature. It performed exactly like it was designed to perform.
We have a part of us that operates much the same way as that see-saw. It’s called the ‘human nature’ and its job is to maintain the status quo – the existing state of affairs. 
This is all fine and dandy until one day we wake up and decide that the habitual ‘state of affairs’ is boring and limiting. AND because we forgot when and how we originally created our status quo (those choices went unconscious years ago) we are lost as to how to create something new and different in our lives.
Examples of the status quo
If, in the area of your life called finances, you are conditioned through limiting beliefs for your cash flow to see-saw up and down – that’s what your cash flow will do. One month/year you will have surplus and the next month/year you will not have enough.
Or in relationships, if habitual emotional responses have you always going in circles – then your relationships will feel like a merry-go-round. Each time you enter into a new relationship you will vow not to repeat the same ‘mistakes’ of the past, but before long the challenges feel too familiar.
Or what about swinging back and forth from too much worrying, stress, ‘what ifs’ to negative self-talk of too much or not enough? This drama/trauma takes the peace and joy out of every day life because you are always waiting for the other ‘shoe to drop.’ Feel familiar? I refer to this constant drama/trauma playground behavior as the ‘status quo’.
Who decides what the ‘status quo’ is in our lives?

WE DO, at a pretty young age. We decide, based on our experiences as a child, what is right and what is wrong. We choose our beliefs, our perceptions and our values and then uphold those choices with our thoughts and feelings. We create a world view in which all is controllable, knowable and makes sense to our human nature. And even more important, these habitual emotions, thoughts, beliefs, conditioning and perceptions keep us feeling safe and secure.
But what if I no longer want to have feast or famine in my finances; or the same old relationship issues? What if I want more peace, joy, happiness and success in my life?
Can I change the status quo?

The short answer is ‘yes’. The longer answer is a process of uncovering and discovering the beliefs that are fueling your perceptions, learn new skills of self-mastery to access an expanded playing field and choose to play a different game. Think about the default setting on your computer. Until you consciously change the settings that came with your computer you get what the manufacturer set.
Our consciousness works similarly. 
Unless you consciously set another default setting for what you want/desire – like an expansive dream, wealth, health and happiness; or a new approach in relationships with spouse/family/friends-and then do what it takes to rewire, realign and redirect the levels that are involved – you will not operate beyond the default playground of your life.
In other words, the default agenda of your human nature will continually override any positive affirmation to change, desire to change, or attempt to change.
Sound hopeless? Well, it’s not. Because you are much more than your human reactive nature. Beyond the drama/trauma playground lies a greater reality. I call it thecocreation playing field. The status quo here is growth, expansion and revelation. There are no rides that make you dizzy from self-sabotaging behavior ad nausea.
Soul – your divinity is in charge of this playing field and every moment can potentially be full of fresh, new awareness. 
To access this new playing field of being, seeing, acting and thinking I have given the process a name: becoming a spiritual scientist. A spiritual scientist: one who observes through the eyes of the soul how to work masterfully with the human reactive nature, apply the learning to their life and cocreate heaven on earth.
Is it fun? Or is it hard work?

Depends on how you approach the process. If you see every new choice as moving you from struggle, guilt, stress, fear and disappointment into peace, joy, expansion, fulfillment and loving, the part of you that was ‘playing it safe’ now experiences a new reference point for security and safety. Excitement replaces trepidation and grace is present in every step.
The metamorphosis process of the caterpillar into a butterfly has a very interesting stage. In its chrysalis stage the ‘imaginary cells’ of the butterfly template are already present. But the chrysalis, thinking that the imaginary cells are foreign tries to destroy the cells. However, because these cells are what the chrysalis must become, the process is not sabotaged. The power within those imaginary cells are greater than the knee jerk reaction to destroy them.
You have within you the ‘blue print cells’ of another way to live life… and the power of your divine self that can not be sabotaged. Every time, through practice, you move beyond judgment, shame or blame and open to compassion, acceptance and forgiveness the power within grows stronger. Then, magically, when the process is complete, what has always been present but hidden within, emerges. You then become who you truly are: radiant, whole, healed, empowered and alive with joy!

Our Divine Original Blueprint

Stefanie Miller –

I have had a recurring vision of a life I embodied as a Monk. I see myself in a long white robe kneeling on the ground praying over a single blade of grass. Such an overwhelming feeling of peace, gratitude and love washes over me. The message I intuit is that all of life is sacred and precious. When we send out positive vibrations to even the tiniest and seemingly least significant form of life it matters and impacts the Whole.

We are all interconnected at the cellular level in the vast matrix we call life.

The past few years have been anything but easy. If anything it has shaken us to the core and left us feeling uprooted. This lack of stability is to allow us to feel vulnerable and open to the possibilities.

We are being brought together with individuals and groups that we normally wouldn’t choose but we are gravitating towards them for a higher purpose of connecting and assisting each other in completing lessons we are finally ready to overcome once and for all. 

Those who tend to isolate are being pushed to reach out to help others and lend support. Those who tend to only give and feel uncomfortable receiving are being prompted to accept assistance.

We are awakening to the fact that we are all One under the same Central Sun.

The trials and tribulations we’ve been going through have been an initiation into the higher realms. 
As we finally “get it” and really begin to let go of the ego, things become less complicated and more open ended. All that we’ve experienced has lead us to finally see things in a new way and forgo limiting creations, repeating the same behaviors that have gotten us nowhere, and forge a new experience. It’s like taking the same route all the time and one day noticing things that have always been there but we failed to see.

We are being challenged to face our fears and look at, acknowledge, face, deal with and release each and every one of them. 

Let me tell you this is no easy task! Once we finally realize they are only illusions created by our past experiences and fostered by our egos we can finally let them go once and for all.

We can no longer endure the agony of living in fear of the unknown. This is when we finally reach a point of total surrender. Our choice is to accept the present moment and find contentment with what is or endure living in discontent. As an empty vessel we are able to find peace. 

From this still point we can open our hearts to receive our Divine Original Blueprint and be filled with what will serve our highest good and greatest joy.
This is the scenario we are all undergoing in one form or another. Those who are resisting the process have it the hardest. We are being squeezed through the birth canal into a new way of life. We are awakening to see and experience the world through fresh eyes. The pathway is through opening our hearts. We are learning how to express love from a genuine place of self-acceptance and non-judgment.
This is a time of integrating all the lessons we’ve learned and applying them in our lives. We are being prompted to take risks and approach things in a way that is out of our comfort zone. Our lives are being revamped.

When we give up trying to control things and do things the way we “think” we should, we allow Source to work some magic in our lives. By giving thanks for unknown blessings already on their way to us, we are saying we expect good things to happen. Do you see the difference? We may not know who, what, when, where or how it is coming, all we do is focus on the positive. Now is about surrendering our will and saying yes to life.

The energy is much more free flowing and creative once we are released from our old stories and belief systems. 

The only thing necessary is a willingness to change. Once we make up our mind that our past doesn’t have to join us in the future we can leave it behind. That is the freeing aspect of Creation.

We’ve done so much inner and outer work. For those of us who’ve already jumped through hoops and done back flips in working on ourselves the hard part is over. This is the time of allowing a gentle unfolding. We simply give permission to be free and it is so. It is that easy.

Relationships will continue to go through some major transformations as many new people come into our lives. Those who leave are just not on the same pathway as we are. Relationships are meant to uplift and raise us to a higher plateau, not drain or bring us down. Once we choose what we want, we only get more and more of that.
Creating abundance becomes easier and easier when we are not bogged down by limiting thoughts or repeating self-defeating behaviors. We create not only monetary abundance but also a wealth of good things by knowing that all things are possible and feeling the many blessings around us.
Best of all and most of all our hearts are opening to deeper and more profound levels of love. 
I find love just bubbles up inside of me and all I want to do is express it. Our relationship with animals, nature and the cosmos is deepening. As we nourish the connection it heals Mother Earth and all of its inhabitants.
Now is a time of gently honoring our process and being kind to one another. It is about releasing the past and holding a positive vision of the future. It is our choice to choose LOVE and embody it at the cellular level.

P r a y e r
Dear God, I show up today as a vessel of pure love. May my presence bring joy and comfort to others. I believe in miracles and I know a miracle is on its way to me right now! I am grateful for all the wonderful things in my life. 

Thank you for all that is and all that is to be. I surrender any lingering fears, doubts or worry that I may be carrying inside of me. I know that everything is working out for my highest and greatest good. I trust and know that life is good. And so it is. Amen.

Moving Beyond Struggle

 

by Marlene Buffa – 


Struggling. Our culture believes that emerging victorious from a struggle is commendable. The outcome seems irrelevant, yet many times focus is bestowed on the process, rather than the result. We look at adversity and challenge ourselves to overcome it. We look at adversity and generate respect and honor to those who rise above it, in spite of all odds. 

Struggle seems to have no limitations: if someone reaches a goal through struggle, we rally around him or her as a hero, a triumphant example of perseverance and persistence. When someone is enveloped by struggle and adversity consumes him, we see struggle as the victor and we rally around him or her as a victim. In either case, “struggle,” not the individual, remains the radius around which we measure our personal growth.

Yet as we further examine the outcroppings of “success,” we find the result of success lies in personal fortitude. What is fortitude but a different face of faith? True success and strength lie not in the constant struggle with life, but in the power of knowing that life supports us and the humility to accept the lessons put in our path. 


When I’m faced with a challenge, I take a deep breath and ask myself, “Do I trust God?” Yes. “Do I trust Life?” Yes. God didn’t put me on earth to get beat up by life. I trust that God intends the best for me and the lessons along the way are just means to an end. Sure, I encounter hazards, heartbreaks, even hiccups along the way, but overall, I see these as challenges and choose not to “struggle” my way through them. 


By surrendering the struggle, the worry, the tension, the anxiety and turning the situation over to God for my greater good, my faith rewarded me. I found it a LOT harder to hold faith rather than concentrate on struggle. It’s mental work. It’s work on a soul-level – perhaps the most difficult work we perform. When everything I hold dear screams inside of me, “wait – think of what you must endure to achieve this,” I turn to the most difficult teacher of all, the power of my faith.


I bought a Christmas ornament last year. Just one. A red sequined “ruby” slipper like Dorothy’s in the Wizard of Oz. This dazzling ornament, alone on my tree, sparkles in the light, reminding me I hold the power all along. 
Like Dorothy’s, my slipper represents my ability to use my talents, my mind, my creativity and most of all, my faith to get me through. It’s symbolic of faith and most people carry their own symbols with them all along and don’t know how to use it. 


True strength of your character comes not from struggling. Struggling indicates you do not deserve the good things life offers you. You feel you must do penance in advance for good to come into your life. If good things in your life constitute your desired results either through struggle or faith, then dare yourself to deserve the good without pre-payment!


Faith and trust. Two very difficult concepts for our guarded personas to accept. If you trust God and Life enough to provide for your needs, then struggle is unnecessary. Move beyond struggle. Give it up. Release “struggle’s” hold on you. It doesn’t serve you. Grow into your faith and the fruits of your desires blossom forth. After all, you deserve it!

Seeing Through Defeat and Discouragement

by Guy Finley – 

The more you know, the farther you can see, so take as long as you need with the following Higher Lesson and allow yourself to see something new about the true nature of discouragement. Then watch how a new and greater personal freedom dawns in your life.
The only purpose discouraged feelings serve is to keep your thoughts on what you can’t do. And with your attention fixed in this fashion on the impossible, there’s no room for discovering what is possible — for what you can do.
Let’s cover this important discovery one more time.
The only thing that discouraged feelings do is to keep you busy doing nothing except feeling sorry for yourself, which is the perfect guarantee that your sorry situation will remain hopelessly the same. Enough is enough! You don’t have to put up with one more discouraged day. That’s right.

There is another choice you can learn to make besides falling into those familiar feelings of failure. Use this next Higher Idea to help you start thinking about those old discouragements in a new way.

Whenever we suffer over what we aren’t able to do, have, win, grasp, or work through, our attention in these moments is always riveted on our own thoughts — thoughts that are busy telling us we’re somehow stuck. Maybe you can recognize some of these heavy-hearted inner voices?

They say in one way or another . . .

  • “I’ll never get out of this mess.” 
  • “I’m too stupid to learn these things.” 
  • “I must have done something terrible to deserve this!” 
  • “There’s no point in going any farther.” 
  • “This is definitely hopeless.”
Now on the surface of things, these all-too-familiar whispers of defeat — these voices that reach our inner ears, speaking to us with our own voice — seem to be genuinely concerned with our unfortunate condition. But a deeper look into their covert operation reveals something totally different. Follow the next four new ideas closely and see something that is both shocking and self-liberating.
1. The more these gloomy voices talk to us, the more discouraged we feel.
2. The more discouraged we feel, the more certain we are that we have no other choice but to feel that way.
3. And the more convinced we are that we have no choice, the less choice we have.
4. These unconscious inner dialogues actually produce the very dead-end we fear!

We end up being able to go no farther with our wish for broader personal horizons because, unbeknownst to ourselves, we now unconsciously believe that there’s no way to get past where it is we perceive ourselves to be limited or tied down.

The key idea in this part of our investigation lies within the word “perceive.”

For the purposes of this study, always remember that the word “perceive” rhymes with deceive. And that’s precisely what this faulty perception is: a self-deception. Here’s proof.
There are no dead ends in Real Life. That’s right. Now here’s why this is true.
There are no dead ends in Real Life because — in any given moment — there is always something Higher to do with your life besides suffering over what you think you can’t have or do or be. Here’s just one example of a Higher Action you can learn to take when faced with the presence of any discouraging inner state.
See that the size of the discouragement you feel is directly proportionate to the size of your insistence that life conform to your demands. Then, having verified this truth for yourself, dare to quietly drop that self-defeating demand.
Now watch in amazement as your discouraged feelings fade away, leaving you with fresh new energies that allow you to not only see a brand new way to proceed with your wish, but which also grant you the strength to begin that next new leg of your quest.
For instance, maybe you’ve felt discouraged because you wanted to learn something new — a higher skill or a difficult lesson — but felt sure that it was beyond your abilities. And so you just resigned yourself to feeling discouraged. While this kind of self-defeating behavior is commonly accepted as natural, it’s totally unnecessary. You can learn to do something Higher.

Instead of falling into those familiar feelings of futility over yourself, try dropping that unconscious demand that you have to be who you think you should be. And then, instead of dwelling in discouragement over who your own thoughts are telling you you’ll never be, get started working on who, and what, you are right now.

In other words, do what’s in your power and refuse to be discouraged about anything else. And keep repeating this new conscious action one step at a time, over and over again. It is in your power to learn whatever it takes — one lesson at a time — and make it all the way to your designated goal.
Here’s one last special thought to help summarize this important life-lesson in liberating ourselves from dark discouragements. Let it reveal a life free of all doubts and despondency:
Any conversation you permit yourself to have with discouraging thoughts guarantees you’ll wind up with a good reason for feeling discouraged. When it comes to any negative thought, the first word you have with it is the same as giving it the last word with you.
Practice these Higher Lessons in self-liberation until you’re free of all feelings of futility. You’ll soon see how this new action gives you the last laugh on discouragement.
