Dearest Courageous Spiritual Champions,

A heads up! Lorna Bevan last Thursday, December 17, 2020

“Here’s to the wild, the weird and the wonderful. To those who ride the waves on their own seas and lose sight of the shore. Who discard the rules, the labels and the chains that once bound them, in search of the truth of their heart. To the ones who are fueled by the authentic and the uncensored, no matter how gritty the taste at times. Here’s to the mismatched puzzle pieces that don’t get invited to join in all the reindeer games; that get left behind in the dust to learn their own way to fly. Who in their sacred solitude grace the skies with wings of freedom and a destiny born of soul fire.  To the rare, unearthly beings who walk the road less traveled, taking the adventure that rises on this path with purpose and passion. Who are brought alive by the fire in their blood and the longing threaded through their being.  Here’s to the rebels, the heartsick originals, and the bittersweet loneliness that fuels their spirit. To the ones who won’t conform, back down or step aside. To the ones who were not born to fit in but to gloriously stand out. To those who are here to be midwives of the genuine.  To the tribe of troublemakers that think so far outside the box, they dream on the edges of the infinite. To those who dance even though they have no idea how; who stumble and make it part of the steps, sing completely off-key and totally out of tune. To the ones who raise their voices to the heavens even though they don’t always know the words.  Here’s to the awakened ones whose purpose is to feed their soul and not starve it. Whose mantra is the drumbeat of their own heart and the brilliant possibility that looms on the horizon. To the ones who dare to be open, to feel, to love and to live.  Here’s to the magical, the mystical and the misunderstood. To the wise ones who move between the shadows and the light. To those who howl at the Full Moon and run naked in the flowing streams. To those who read the compass written on the walls of their hearts and follow the North Star etched upon their spirit.  Here’s to the fallen, the broken and the shattered. To the warriors who know that to be cracked is to let the light in deeper. Who know that the best fruit is on the very tip of the branch and the brightest jewels are hidden within the roughest of surfaces.  To the ones intoxicated by the burning of the winds of change in their lungs and who live in the lands that others fear to tread. Here’s to the brightly colored patchwork of divine visionaries that won’t stand down, play small or sit out. To the stargazers, the storm-chasers and the Old Souls that walk this Earth. Here’s to the wild ones. Here’s to you.”

Hallelujah! We did it! Since we are all living a little closer to the edge of existence and on the verge of something big, it’s now plainly obvious that life does not always go on as usual. As we are all being re-oriented and giving birth to a new world, we need to be aware of just how much we have done and managed to stay grounded within the ancient wisdom of all our spiritual ancestors.

Even though on the outside there are multiple reasons why we could be feeling so much fear, pain and uncertainty, I want to share a different perspective – one that isn’t always user friendly, and I may have mentioned this before. I believe with all my heart that my suffering happened for a reason. Not because I am a bad or a mean person, on the contrary because I Am good and loved and that the Universe/Spirit wanted me to go through these experiences for my highest good. This is part of my Soul’s blueprint to grow. To evolve. I’ve found when I want to avoid (pain and discomfort), wishing it away, it only grew stronger.

We are all here to learn how to Love. We do it usually through health, wealth and or relationships. This is how and why we are meant to go through pain. It is here to show us where we are out of alignment with our Divine Self. Pain is here to teach us the lessons we need in order to learn and grow.

Especially now. Especially this year. What a blessing it is to be alive and to have the love and support of my friends, family and spiritual tribe.  To experience any form of transformation, first we must be willing to cross that river of change and free ourselves from all limiting beliefs.  Covid did that for me. It gave me the luxury of time to reflect and inquire on what I value most. What do I want to do with my One and Precious Life?  Moreover, being isolated for more months than I would have ever imagined, I was broken open and was graced to receive the gift of new and infinite possibilities.

To be open to the possibility that change is going to do us good!  Change for me is not only the hardest thing I ever had to do, it is also the most freeing thing I ever did! Our souls don’t care if we are uncomfortable, inconvenienced or upset. Our souls are always steering us in the right direction for our highest good. We are all in that gestation period giving birth to our new world/reality. That’s why if we let go of the reigns and surrender to what is, we can allow ourselves to trust and be guided by the Amazing Grace that is carrying us on angelic wings!

I loved what the author, Penney Pierce wrote on her blog, ”We’ve been realigning and getting rid of the kinks in the circuits, and learning to receive the new energy, centering, and collecting our consciousness. We’re trying to see: Who are we now that our energy is freed up and flowing in an improved way? What is my new “home frequency” and what do I want to do with it? Where does the energy itself want to go? What if it doesn’t want to go anywhere just yet? Am I in charge of the process or is the process in charge of me? Perhaps we’re learning to be still, to enter the silence, to connect with the inner voice available in the present moment. We are so addicted to speed and progress, to processing data and “getting better.” When the Flow doesn’t take us on a roller coaster ride somewhere new, we think something’s terribly wrong. I’m not growing! I must be falling behind everyone else! And in the limbo time, instead of feeling the gift of spaciousness, the potential for greater inspiration and imagination and perhaps course correction, we turn it into something negative or even scary. We hesitate to move forward because we don’t know how it will be, and at least we’re familiar with the old reality, even though it’s slow, dense, sticky, and seems increasingly stupid. But if we step into the new reality, will we lose our loved ones? Will we become such misfits that we won’t be able to work at a regular job? Or will we become so disillusioned with the blocked life in the physical world that we won’t want to live anymore at all?

So, the Flow brings us space. In this space we need to get over our jumpiness and hyperactivity, be calm, and join the vibration at the heart of the quietude. Trust it. Feel into it. What is inside is the new experience of ourselves—ourselves at a higher frequency. We need to feel it fully, recognize it, choose it, and practice it until we become saturated with the new frequency and convinced about its power to change how we make reality real via our vibration and perception. Then, surprise! We discover that the energy is doing most of the work for us, that the Flow is magically re-established when we match our own next-higher frequency, and now it brings synchronicities and miraculous things.  Many people I speak with have misinterpreted this part of the process and complain that they’re “stuck.”  What’s wrong with me. It just points out that we have been trained out of enjoying time to ourselves, leisure, pleasure, daydreaming, staring into space, doodling and noodling around, and just “being with” life in the moment, appreciating things like beauty, humor, and the senses. This is gestational time, soul contacting time, revelation time.”

So today if you haven’t already started, when would be a good time to start celebrating You?  You got this. Take your toolbox and use all the tools available to start singing, dancing and having fun. Joy is contagious!  It is through joy that each one of us will be able to help reconstruct this new world. You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than through joy and happiness to maintain a beautiful, happy and brighter vibration/future. When we are able to shift and have a new vision of the world, we become free to be you and to be Me!

There is a wonderful song called ‘Let’s Fall in Love’. Today I invite you to fall in Love with You. Celebrate you home! We deserve to have the best holiday week ever! Why?  Because we did it! We faced our fears and in letting go allowed for a space where infinite possibilities could come through and aligned us with our own true nature! We are the Ones that Lorna talked about above.  Know that as creative change agents and path finders, you were made for these times. The rebels. The ones who won’t conform, back down or step aside. The ones who were not born to fit in but to gloriously stand out. We are the ones who are here to be midwives of the genuine, to think outside the box. Who Dance even though we may not know how.  The ones who raise their voices to the heavens even though they don’t always know the words.  The ones who dare to be open, to feel, to love and to live. We are the Ones who follow the North Star etched upon our spirit. The magical, the mystical and the misunderstood. The wise ones who move between the shadows and the light. The stargazers, the storm-chasers and the Old Souls who walk this Earth. Take it personally – Here’s to You, and to US!
