“One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. A soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of the soul in shadowy times like these — to be fierce and to show mercy toward others, both — are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.”
– Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

William Shakespeare was quoted to say, “All things are ready if our minds be so!” Since the new normal is change, I thought I’d better get better at it myself! So if you too are feeling different during these incredible and crazy times – know you are not alone! Many are with you. Everything looks and seems to be changing constantly. It’s hard not to notice all the changes taking place in our bodies, minds and spirits. Basically the manual for life that we were given at birth has become out-dated! According to the mystic and author, Terace McKenna, one of the reasons our world is falling apart is because we are not creating enough new things. What that means to me is for us individually to mid-wife what’s in us that helps us to become more alive, more excited and to do whatever we are passionate about – to know there’s more to life if we are willing to take the risk and want something better and to create and express our song loud enough for the world to hear.

Becoming your authentic you, being fully transparent, is to inspire others to do what they love as well and become so excited about creating from their innate gifts and begin each day with a new wonder and joy in their heart knowing they get to feel and see their true selves alive. To feel their multi-dimensional, vibrant and authentic self soaring while raising their vibrations/frequency to uplift themselves and the planet at large. The more authentic you become, the more you like who you are. The same strategy works for being transparent. The more transparent you are the more you’re willing to be seen and known by others. By allowing yourself to be seen you allow others to show up and be seen! Then magic happens. You create true friends and partnerships. The truth does indeed sets us Free!

There is a famous Japanese saying, “Keep your heart clear and transparent, and you will never be bound. A single disturbed thought creates ten thousand distractions. We are transforming from the information age to the intuition age. How neat is it to realize that the field of intuitive energy is not just reserved for psychics or mystics. We are all becoming hard-wired intuitively, psychically and emotionally.

As I am navigating my way from the old paradigms through to the new age of intuition I have come to realize that anything that is standing in my way, blocking me to move forward is coming up to feel, heal and dissolve. I believe all the attention that the media focuses on cleaning up clutter in our lives is a great metaphor for us to address all of the energies that have been composed of fear and survival. These false perceptions and unconscious habits that have dimmed our light and stopped us in our tracks from moving forward need to be released-so our true selves can shine through. These filters can no longer block our evolution.

Removing the clutter removes layers of pain and longing that no longer serve us. When we let them go we create the space to become fully transparent. To become the authentic, gem like selves we came here to be!

In the forward from the book ‘Frequency’ by Penney Peirce wrote, Michael Beckworth wrote, “There’s a Good Reason You Feel Excited and Pressured If you are to fully understand the emerging energy reality with its high frequency and unlimited perception, it helps to know there’s a good reason you may feel shaken up, ultra-sensitive, or rudderless. The reality of the Intuition Age will be the result of a gradual but fairly rapid process of personal and societal transformation. It can put you through the wringer emotionally and energetically but will eventually deliver you to an amazing destination you’ll love. And, yes, there is a road map to help you get there. Understanding the transformation process as a whole is crucial if you don’t want to jump from one popular trend in thinking to the latest energy technique while missing key components that can make your experience smoother, faster, and more cohesive.”

I have been inspired to write this musings due to the great impact from Penney Peirce’s trilogy of books. In Peirce’s book, ‘Transparency’, she nailed it when she wrote, “We’re entering the “Time of Great Ironies. What seems restrictive is really freeing. What seems dangerous is really protective. What seems safe is really detrimental. What seems problematic is really the answer. What seems easily spiritual is really numbing. What seems sacrificial is really an increase. It is the quest for and attainment of personal and collective transparency that reveals the deeper truths, and it brings with it some welcome humor and relief.”

It is almost impossible not to be affected by the ascension process that is moving through us and the planet as well. As above, so below! We are all being transformed energetically to create space for all the new downloads. The main thing for me is to know and feel that my intuition has been heightened. This up-leveling of frequencies has acutely raised my senses which not only increases my perception of truth, sensitivity and awareness but also phenomenally expanding this vast field for compassion of myself and others. My telepathic communications with the physical and non-physical is being heightened along with just knowing when I AM in or out of my truth. Basically, my GPS has been up-leveled whether I use my cell phone for directions or not!

Psychologist Jacqueline Small once wrote, “At certain points along the journey, people begin to crave a larger context. Quantum psychics together with the new sciences are confirming what philosophers had declared since the beginning of time. We are the spiritual giants, the energetic beings of creative intelligence, fully equipped to consciously and magically participate in the evolutionary impulse of the universe thus ascending and becoming fully aware.” This is what I see and feel all over -we are craving something more. We no longer are consciously blocking our growth. We are aware of when we are sabotaging ourselves and when we are consciously choose to do better, to evolve into more of who we truly are. We are not falling in love, we are raising in love!

The author Anais Nin once wrote, “Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.” However, if we stay focused on the now, in each moment we have a brand new opportunity to open and explore in a new field in space/time. In the vortex of infinite possibilities we can discover the endless options and fantastic new fascinations that will help to motivate and get us started again and again. We can continue to cross the river of change by staying in the now. By going with the flow we know intuitively what to do next. What’s more, everything expands with our energy. Whenever we bring something new into our lives we must love what’s new. Not continue to morn the old and outworn. In addition to bringing healing, we must love our bodies. In any arena we want to focus and create from, what we want to attract in our lives, we must love it, respect it, be grateful for it and by all means praise it! Whatever we focus on will and does expand.

Remember, when you do the work, everyone around you is up-lifted. Your energy is your calling card. Know what you want wants you. It already exists. Know you deserve more. Ask and you will receive. And, if your not on the receiving end just now change the story you are telling yourself! Know through your intention and attention the path will flow upon you. Ask your guides, “let it be easy, and let it be light!” Miracles and astonishing things are happening all around us – just remember to keep open to receiving them. When we awaken to who we truly are, our experiences give rise to a new level. We are at our best and the universe mirrors that energy completely and helps us to expand the circle to encompass all of the world and beyond. You see everything, that’s love! As William Henley wrote, “I am the master of my Fate, I am the captain of my Soul.” I love you madly.
