Dear Courageous Spiritual Champions,

Spiritual growth is now eclipsing survival as the focus of our human experience. It’s so popular and becoming so much more attractive because it is aligning with our Soul’s plan not only for survival and for evolution. As Michael Meade wrote,  “In making more Soul in this world, we strengthen the connection to the Soul of the World and help sustain the bridge between the worlds. For the Soul has its own inner light and each Soul is secretly connected to the song of the earth, to the Soul of the World, and to the indelible spark of life and light that can only be found in the darkest hours and the darkest times.”

Deep down in our Souls, according to my research, what we value the most in our human experience is ‘The need to feel safe, valuable, and loved’.  It is a need that is as deep as the need for food and shelter. It motivates and colors our choices and then propels us to carefully observe what is around us and to use it wisely. Moreover, since the very beginning of the human species focused on these needs to feel safe, valuable, and loved, it has always created our focus and attention outwards, to what is external. We are so used to reaching outward to satisfy that need that we scarcely notice it. It has become our natural default and it has worked!

Until now…

We are at the precipice of a new creation story that is unfolding within and without!  We are in the liminal (the doorway) of two worlds—the new consciousness and the old consciousness. Our experiences now are unprecedented because never before have we humans ever experienced this rate of ascension. As far back as we can remember, all of us as children experienced different fences that may have limited our experiences of childhood. We are now encountering a new world beyond the limits of being fenced in! Up until now our limited self, our five senses, have been our fence! If you are reading this, most likely you are not only using more than your five senses, you are probably multi-dimensional!

For many of us, as everything is coming to the surface to be felt, we are realizing our purpose and the reason we are here. We came here to be the catalyst to flip everything so we could rebuild and create a new Earth.  It seems we needed the chaos to wake us up as a society. We had to have ‘the eve of destruction’ so as to rebuild a new infrastructure! As humanity wakes up and the Universe begins to broadcast a new frequency, humanity has become more conscious of the shift. We all are beginning to feel everything that is changing and vibrating at these new frequencies. Basically we are letting go of energies, people, places and things that no longer serve so we can make space for what is sacred and does matter!

Our growth, looking inwards instead of reaching outward is the newer and deeper understanding of why we are here and how we serve. Instead of trying to control external circumstances for us to feel better we are evolving by going within and digging deeper to discover our wounds and find the roots of our insecurities and heal them. Finding a different partner, buying a bigger car, or mortgaging a larger home, are all ways of pursuing external power—attempting to make yourself feel more whole and secure by controlling the external world.  However, we can all see what the pursuit of external power has cost us as a society. In the end, seeing its pursuit only produced more violence, despair and destruction between ourselves and our nation. It’s apparent every time we turn on the news!

Which brings us to Now and the present day. As a society, for those who have evolved, we can no longer depend on looking outward for the safety and security that we all longed for to survive. However, our minds still have that channel on default!  As our Souls ascend, our satisfaction comes through developing and aligning with our Internal (Authentic) Power. Changing from external power where we tried to control and manipulate to aligning with our authentic power requires us to become heart-centered. It requires for all of us to have compassion. To feel the pain and joy of others, as well as making their concerns our own. Faster technology, going into outer space and having bigger, better cars, homes and aircraft won’t make us more heart-centered nor compassionate.

Just to be clear, AUTHENTIC POWER (per Gary Zukav), is the alignment of our personalities with our soul.  The most essential part of creating authentic power is our INTENTION. Moreover, without LOVE we cannot create it!  Developing this part of us requires a lifetime of focus and awareness. It requires us to be aware of what we are aware of in each moment! Moreover, until we are able to align with this, we will experience some of the most undesirable parts of ourselves—the parts that blame, criticize, judge, resent, envy, and hate  ourselves and the world at large. It isn’t a walk in the park! However, these are the parts that must be uncovered and changed and loved so we don’t keep projecting our wounds and insecurities onto others.

This is what we have come here to do as Catalysts where our Souls reveal themselves as us!  This is the doorway to the spiritual path. To awaken means to be aware of what we are aware of.  We cannot control our personal mind; it only limits us; however, we can choose to ignore those thoughts, the parts of ourselves that are not loving and compassionate. When we can align with Divine Love (our Higher Self) we are cultivating our personality with our soul! It is up to us which doorway we choose! One door opens to the experience of acting with love. The other opens to aligning with fear.  With the intention of creating authentic power we open the doorway to infinite potentiality and the whole field of quantum physics. Our choices determine whether we will learn through Love and Trust or Fear and Doubt! Anything that is not coming from love is coming from fear!

And even though we are treading softly, we are also taking baby steps as we learn to cross the bridge from the world of the past into the new world that is not quite here yet. While we are still in ‘No Man’s Land’  it is essential that we have a new perception so the revolution can happen within ourselves. And everything depends on our attitude – our attitude toward ourselves. Big changes are happening for all of us in ways we have never seen or experienced at this magnitude of change. Therefore we have to think of it in new ways. We have to change what we tell ourselves on a daily basis. No longer can we hold on to our preferences of what we think is right for us. but instead to surrender to what is. In the creation of a new way of life, we must begin at the beginning, with our own individual transformation. We must keep moving forward, affirming our worthiness and gratitude for all that we are and for all that we have! We have to create a new story and stick with what works!

We have much more to do. Let’s do it together! Let us do it in wisdom, with love and compassion. Let us make this the human experience. Creating authentic power is learning to distinguish love from fear. To embrace the frightened parts of ourselves and choose love no matter what. This requires much awareness and blissipline/discipline!

Thank you for being a catalyst and container for peace, love and beauty. Each of you is part of the whole and so needed. I believe that is one of the reasons we are always looking up at the stars. They are reminding us that we are the dreamers! We are tied to the stars. We humans are all playing our part in the unfolding of this incredible, awesome universe. As Archangel Michael decrees, “Beloveds, shine your light for all to see. Call on us, and we will assist you in every way! You are Loved.”
