TERI WADE: “Soul Integration”

“When the Soul is ready, the human no longer gets to run the show. Integration needs to occur or the body will begin to shut down. It’s all part of the evolutionary cycle of our species. This new energy, the crystalline structure being brought on by these higher frequencies are activating your DNA which are spiraling up through your spine, this is the emergence of your Spirit ready to take physical form. It’s really a beautiful, amazing thing.”

~Teri Wade

 

An Awakening is when your heart starts to open and a longing for purpose sets in. It’s that original spark of Light being activated and nothing is the same again. Everything that has been suppressed, hidden and ignored is coming to the surface to be understood because integration between body and soul needs to happen to progress to your Divine Light. Ascension!

When the Soul is ready, the human no longer gets to run the show. Integration needs to occur or the body will begin to shut down. It’s all part of the evolutionary cycle of our species. This new energy, the crystalline structure being brought on by these higher frequencies are activating your DNA which are spiraling up through your spine, this is the emergence of your Spirit ready to take physical form. It’s really a beautiful, amazing thing.

The more resistant and stubborn the human, the more the ego wants to retain control which makes it a much less comfortable transition. Like I always say… flow with these changes, get rid of your belief system, it’ll be much easier on you and your journey will be much more enjoyable.

Your Soul, Spirit did not come here to die in your body with you, as you, it came here to fully live in your body, with you, as you, as one. The connection must be your priority or the suffering can be immense especially in these current intense frequencies.

Something needs to happen to wake us all up. If you choose to wake up in a harsh way by resisting or if you choose to wake up in a magical bliss both end up the same. It’s all up to you how hard you make it on yourself. Your Soul will not fight you because it is much more powerful than you as a human and it will wait. Eventually, you will suffer enough and will beg for it to come forth to help you, assist you, guide you and save you. Eventually, you will learn never to disconnect from your Soul ever again.

Remember, you need to open up to it and quit perceiving it as a threat. Eventually, you will have struggled enough and will give up the fight that kept you asleep and separated inside. You’ll start to understand that integration with Soul will allow you to build your Light, that original spark we all started as so you can live the most magical and abundant physical reality here.

You will find out that you were fighting yourself all along, you were the one that created all your suffering because you just weren’t ready to open up yet. After suffering enough, doing without, banging your head on the wall you’ll decide you have suffered enough and want to live… this is integration with Soul. Meaning, you’re putting your Soul first instead of trying to suffocate it.

Eventually, when you are ready you will move beyond the fear and the judgment. When you deny your Soul you are the one that suffers here. You are your creation, a manifestation of your mindset… you are your reality. You are the one that has been asleep, you are the one that needs to ask to be shown no one else can do it for you.

Remember, you cannot get left behind unless you leave your Soul behind this is called separation from self, Source Light. But, your Soul can out wait you, it can out everything you cause it is you from a higher dimension of consciousness.

Your Soul knows everything you think, everything you feel, everything you try and it feels your fears. It sees your inability to commit and it’s here to help you out. It knows what it’ll take to get your attention to wake you up. Sometimes you think you’re being punished in some way but what it’s doing is trying to integrate with you and your physical body so you can walk as one. It is you and loves you from the depths of your core.

It’s pushing to emerge so integration happens whether you like it or not. It is you who determines your own Awakening here and it tries to honor your Awakening with ease but it’s your resistance that determines how comfortable or uncomfortable it feels. Many chose to Ascend in the physical that’s why you are reading this now. Eventually, every human being will realize how magnificent, magical and amazing you truly are. You have gifts and abilities that are beyond your comprehension and have access to physical realities beyond your imagination. It’s time…

ENLIGHTENMENT FOR THE DAY ~ Denise Le Fay on Spiritual & Personal Attacks

“Many Volunteers, Starseeds, Lightwarriors, Bluerays etc. have been repeatedly attacked by Team Dark beings and their AI devices because we’ve always been a huge threat to them, not because we’ve done something “wrong”.  See the reversal, the inversion, the flip spin about just this by unaware humans?  See the lack of greater awareness in those people who shame and blame you for being attacked?  See why I’ve gotten angry at times with people who’ve unknowingly drank the Team Dark Kool-Aid and preached shame, blame and lack of “love” at those of us who’ve been doing our ascension Mission Work while being attacked because of it?  Being attacked by negative nonhuman aliens and entities is one thing, being attacked by unaware humans is in many ways even worse because they’re who we’ve tried to help all along.”

KARA DEMONET (Soulstice Rising): “Fear Is An Illusion”

Fear seems to be very prevalent in the old world. Yet, it is an opportunity to see it is an illusion; to hold you back and empower the fear. Don’t! Go beyond the fear and focus on Love instead, for within the fear is Love. The fear is also an opportunity to release any residual fear you still hold. Look into the fear; whatever it is; and see at its core Love. In every instance, focus on your own Integrity; your Truth. Being in your Integrity keeps you on your Path of Love. You can see fear as just another distraction; something to cling to; complain about or take on. It’s best to be Love instead. And what is Love? It is who you are. It is Source and by being authentically you, you transform the fear to Love simply by being you; simply by being your Integrity; your Truth.

Realize too that the phase we’re in requires each of us to be patient with ourselves and others. It requires us also to share our gifts; whatever they are and how large or small they may be. Some are writers, some are poets, some are photographers, some are Earthkeepers, some are conduits of a greater Love. It matters not how you express your gift; as long as you do. It can be as small as caring for a pet or loved one or caring for a plant…as long as you do it with Love; share your gift or expand your gifts. Be sure to ground often, for Earth is shifting as we are. Everything is shifting…your beliefs and concepts, your identity…everything. Trust only in Source, for this helps balance and ground you. The Sacred is where to place your attention, for from Source all else is born. Source is who you are.

We often want to control things by believing we must work at a loveless job or keep certain people in our lives. Yet, control is also an illusion. You control nothing and no-one. This is why it is essential to know; truly know; that the Power is within you, for you are Source. If you stay in neutrality as well, then you maintain your Sovereignty. You do not attach to “good” or “bad;” you observe with Compassion, knowing a deeper Truth.

Trust and have Faith that all is in Divine Order. This includes the many things and people that are no longer on Earth or choose to remain asleep. If it feels like everything is falling apart; rejoice; for it is and must. You have consciously let go of much; this also occurs on an unconscious level. I have said there is a great Transformation occurring. Perhaps some of you didn’t feel beneath words or you just skimmed over that word, since it is used so much. Transformation is a complete let-go. From the goo that is left, a New World and a New You is reconstructed cell by cell. Even your DNA is changed, as is your consciousness. All is so all of Who You Are is aligned with and as Source. None of the old can remain. Of course, you must choose. Some may not want to let go of certain things; some may want to continue their complaining and complacency; and yet many will do anything to bring forth the New…not just for themselves and Gaia, but for the All.

If there are still old wounds that you carry around, heal and transform them to Love. This requires you to be in the Now Moment and to have loving support. Your support can be like-hearted others or the invisible realm. When you are in Stillness, call upon support. Ask for what you want and remember just because you have a memory of something it does not mean it is still actively creating in your life. Go into the memory and see if it gets you to react. If it does, ask to have the energy of it removed. If you do not react, trust that you have healed and transformed that particular wound. Just because you remember something does not necessarily mean it is still creating in your life.

If you are one who is asking to ascend and you feel as though nothing is happening, pay attention to your messages. Whether they are in your dreams, meditations or in regular life, pay attention. Stay in the Moment; stay in your Integrity. You are being guided. Yes, there are baby steps, for Ascension doesn’t happen when you want it to (control). It can happen in a second or in a lifetime, for everyone is unique. Remember that you aren’t alone; you are being guided in each moment. Are you listening? Be strong, committed and patient. Each choice you make leads you to Ascension or leads you away. You know the difference. If you feel overwhelmed by too many choices, take a deep breath and do just one thing at a time. Keep it simple.

Are you experiencing gold? This is the essence of Christ Consciousness as well as the New Earth. Do you experience purple? This is the essence of Transformation. Do you experience green? It is your Heart expanding. Do you experience blue? It is your New voice (and could also be the Blue Beings of Sirius communicating with you as well as other beings of Light). As we move toward 11/11, these colors/essences will intensify. Do you experience sensations in your higher chakras (Pineal, 3rd Eye, Crown)?These chakras are being updated. Along with the colors/ essences, there probably are some physical sensations. Flow with it all; observe without wondering what it is or why; just observe without attaching to whatever is going on. How you can help yourself…ground, be in Nature, take care of yourself and be gentle. Don’t push; flow.

If it feels as though you are taking one step forward and one step back, do not despair. It simply is the way it works. Energy ebbs and flows and since you are energy, you ebb and flow! Linear time is an illusion. Nothing goes by Point A to Point B to Point C, etc. Nothing goes in a straight line. Energy is a spiral. You are not a victim; nothing happens to you except when you have disempowering or limiting thoughts and beliefs (you create it; it only seems as though it happens to you). If you don’t like or resonate with your creation, begin again. You are not on a timetable either; all is in Divine Order and in Divine Time. Everything occurs in the Moment. Think of the popular word, “timeline.” Time is an illusion and line is linear. Very 3D. Of course, this is only my perception. What is yours? Or do you just go with whatever is fed to you without Discernment? Use Discernment with everything you see, read or hear. Always ask, “Is this true?”

Much seems to be sensationalized these days. By using Discernment, you are guided. If you feel victimized in any way regardless of who a person says they are or where they get their information, ask to be removed from the situation. Remember, you have a support team ready to help you in any given moment. They will not interfere, so you must ask. Discernment is a tool you have within. It is a Soul Essence. It rests within your Heart.

Here are some examples of being awake or awakening more: you lose track of time (yesterday I was speaking with a daughter and mentioned it was Tuesday; she replied, “Mom! It’s Friday!” I couldn’t stop laughing). You might not even remember what you did just an hour ago. If things seem strange or you get lost in familiar surroundings, this is another message that you’re awakening even more. Sometimes you’re clear; sometimes you are in a fog. Only wanting meaningful relationships; feeling tired of “small talk.” You may want to spend a lot of time alone. Of course, there are lots of physical phenomena too. I won’t go into these, as everyone is unique as to what they are experiencing.

Trust yourself and love yourself. These are the two things to always have in the forefront of your life. Be gentle and peaceful in all you choose to do. Stay neutral without going into judgment. Remember that you are loved and guided and cared for.

SARAH CARVALHO: “The Sun Walks With You”

The Sun of the awakening consciousness is the Light in your walking. It lights your inner universe, your sight, your body, your life, your thoughts, your feelings. In its essence it is the pure expression of the Light.

Beyond the night, the Sun is always rising somewhere. Walk with it, It is always day — clear and awaken.

The shadow feeds from discord, from judgment and from every sensation of separation. The more it finds out that the sunlight is about to dawn its brightness within you, more it agitates to prolong the nocturnal period in your interior. In a direct or indirect way you begin to be surrounded by unbalanced thoughts that go through winding ways, and why not say liar ways, to arrive to conclusions also unbalanced and unfavorable to harmony that more look like sentences that your ego and the limits of your mind impose to yourself, prolonging the wait of your soul for the Light and freedom that it so much yearns to experience.

Take care of your thoughts, watch yourself in your impetus of judging instantaneously people and situations, distributing shallow and limited conclusions of eternal stories that deserve your respect and admiration.

You talk about your brother with the easiness of someone who talks about trivial subjects of the daily, of a common life. You forget that before you stands an infinite being with its potentialities who has already lived and seen what you have no idea about, who has its fights and limits, but above all is the son of a same Universal Father, as you are also. This brother needs first a positive evaluation from your part, thoughts favorable to fraternal union and your lovely comprehension and, when you are able, your generous aid, in that you offer what you have already trailed and the best you have conquered in yourself. Share.

Share instead of removing the chances of success and happiness in the Light.

Comprehend instead of finding past and present mistakes and praise the chances of success at each new day.

Welcome instead of separating, the distance can — and sometimes needs — to exist in times and spaces, but not in the heart.

Discern until where you manage to be close to the other without allowing yourself to entangle through vicious circles that compromise your balance and your conquests. By mixing yourself with such energies know that you will need a great amount of energy and strength to free yourself and assume again your way.

Love and cultivate what is best — this Love that believes and persists in faith is the divine substance to the rise of the Sun inside yourself and in the whole world.

SANDRA WALTER: “Final Eclipse and Unity in the Intensity”

Blessings Beloved Light Tribe ~

There is Unity in the intensity of this passage. The energies, and our Higher levels, are pushing for deep personal shifts to accommodate our true heart’s path and Ascension. If you allow it, choosing Unity and Love as your Primary focus and Primary timeline choice, the Source codes can activate, shed what does not serve, and migrate your consciousness to a brand new experience. It takes focus and trust to utilize this passage for the highest interests of all, and maintain calm in the cosmic storm.

Activation of Pure Source Codes

Source code activation is the experience of feeling, accepting and existing as Source Presence without the dense separation of Self-and-Source. We experience the mind of God as our own, the pure love of Source as our beingness. We begin to feel this unification consistently, right through our conscious awareness. It is pure, blissful and overwhelming. Many have written me in the last few months about this new experience of unification with Source, and the intensity of bliss, visions and sensations of Oneness. It does feel different, and is difficult to describe outside of quantum poetry. It is here, we are anchoring it into the collective, and it is activating the rainbow-crystalline lightbody.

We have lived in separation for so long that Oneness on this intimate level can feel surprising, even for Wayshowers anchoring this into the collective. Nothing else seems to matter as these activations occur, so we take care to integrate and light-ground as best we can. Mostly you will want to meditate, feel it, be with this profound peace, and expand this Divine Presence within.

Simultaneously, the bifurcation effect of both feeling and witnessing the division of timelines presents.

Relationships end, and partnerships dissolve to accommodate the new timeline choices. Often when we ask for change and highest alignments, it shows up in unexpected ways. Remember we are all one, and endings are temporary in the grand scheme of things. Trust the path. Judgment of the self or others is not needed for any part of this journey. The old energy of good-bad, right-wrong is on the hit list with these shifts, and thereby gets amplified to reveal the path of Unconditional Love as an alternative. Discern with the heart, let it guide you with grace to new alliances, projects, or creations which compliment your highest trajectory. Divine Neutrality is key as the veils thin.

Ultimately, this is a passage to choose your true heart’s path, and align with it wholeheartedly in thought, word, and action. Aligning with the New Earth timelines can feel complex in this energy, since so much shedding, releasing, clearing, and higher choices are presenting right here, right now.

If you feel confused or anxious about the changes or the unknown, keep it simple. Find the baseline truth of Love within your own heart, dismiss judgment of the self or the external, and express this in any unique, creative way. Write it out. Get in nature alone. Design and dream awake the New Earth projects. Meditate for balance and calm. Go direct; ask Source for full support of the highest dreams and creations of love you may manifest in this lifestream. Name them, claim your creation. Pay attention during the eclipse on Saturday. Honor it and claim your place on the higher trajectory if that is your desire.

Busy Visions and Gate Adjustments

Meditations and lucid dream/etheric realm activations are opening these crystalline Gateways of the Heart, and many are migrating their timelines to expand into next-level Lightbody. Brilliant (natural) DMT visions have been strong, showing crystalline stargates, crystalline bridges encoded in DNA shining brightly, and more royal crown visions morphing into crystalline temples. Lyrans have been predominant, some with stargates on their crowns, Masters have been making adjustments during the Unity Meditations, multiple cosmic grid systems have been shifting to open the New Earth gateways, and a Bridge guide handed me a Solar chart showing an X-12 flare. That last one is a code, probably not a physical Solar event (although we did have an X-9 last September after the eclipse Gateway.) I feel it has more to do with the new alignment of Solaris, which completes this month. The interdimensional Solar flashing activity has been consistent all year, along with the crystal-clear visions of New Earth.

The sensations of phasing out of density, which is the freeing experience of being multidimensional rather than physically here-or-there, and expansion of Lightbody is quite powerful during this eclipse sandwich passage. Solar eclipses tend to be stronger, and I AM fasting, clearing, preparing this week to be an open conduit for the highest light and experience. We tend to be sleepy anyway during these energies. I feel more balanced and calm when I prepare and go deep; follow your heart guidance accordingly.

Lightworkers in Service, Let us Unify

Kindwhile, the grounded task of assisting Gaia, HUmanity kingdoms and elementals presents. Keep it simple, as the energies may make us feel trancey, spacey, or sleepy. Even in the expanded states of embodiment, we manage to unify in service.

We welcome forth this Divine realignment and the revelation of the Christed organic timelines with ease and grace. Gateways are already open, let us unify for the Partial Solar eclipse with ceremony, prayer, mediation and our pure intent of Ascension. The eclipse peak is on Saturday, August 11 at 2:46am PDT.

We hold this unified focus on restoration of the organic Ascension timelines for all, supporting the Solar shifts, and stability for the collective during this Gateway. The energies may feel scattered for a while before they balance out. Hold the intention of Peace.

Meditation, hydration, integrate in water (natural lakes, streams, river water is best), move the body, connect with the SUN as the codes are very strong in this now, and get off-line often for the clearest experience.

Global Unity Meditations on SUNday

Join us in creating palpable shifts for all willing hearts on SUNday August 12th at 8:11am, 11:11am and 5:11pm Pacific Daylight Time. Breathe, center yourself and meditate in the stillness of Pure Source Consciousness for 33 minutes. Gratitude for inviting your friends, Tribes and loved ones to participate in this co-creation of peace.

Blessings to everyone for this unique passage. Gratitude, Love and Strength to all beings in Divine Service.

In Love, Light and Service,
Sandra

ALETHEIA LUNA: “Being Spiritual Doesn’t Mean Sh*t If You Can’t Hold Space for Others”

“If we ever hope to grow at a deep level and feel authentically connected to others, we need to learn how to hold space for both ourselves and others.”

~Aletheia Luna

 

So, here’s the thing. We might do Instagram-perfect yoga. We might meditate for at least an hour a day. We might pray. Say mantras. Do mudras. Send love to the world. We might have a hoard of crystals and other spiritual trinkets. We might do elaborate daily rituals, eat a cruelty-free whole food diet, and fast every month. We might burn incense, smile all day, say affirmations, and say “love and light” or “namaste” a lot. We might call ourselves spiritual seekers, healers, empaths, intuitives, old souls, or yogis.

But in my humble opinion, all of this doesn’t mean sh*t if we can’t show compassion and be there for others.

The Hypocrisy of Saccharine Spirituality

Firstly, I want to start by saying that I am by no means innocent. I have judged others before, turned a blind eye, shown unkindness, and committed spiritual bypassing — all while under the self-designated label of being “spiritual.”

I think to some extent, we all have. That is why I feel that the topic of this article is so important to cover — hypocrisy is something that we’re all capable of. The tendency is latent within each and every one of us. And I think we all need to understand and work to be aware of that.

But there are some things in life that tend to trigger, bring out, and exacerbate this hypocrisy. In this case, I am referring to a certain popular variety of spirituality. I call it Saccharine Spirituality — and it is a type of spirituality that is defined by a sickly sweet emphasis on “good vibes only” and “love and light” without much depth or real-life rawness.

Saccharine spirituality is the type of spirituality out there that involves worshiping the “feel-good” and “high vibe,” but actively avoids, denies, or shuns anything negative and uncomfortable. Saccharine spirituality is all about feeling empowered, developing self-love, and celebrating forms of spirituality that look good on the surface — but at the same time, it produces a phobia of anything too real, too emotionally challenging, too blood-and-dirt, too “unawakened” or “low vibe.”

And it doesn’t take much to see that saccharine spirituality is alive and thriving more than ever. We can literally see it everywhere: on social media, in real life, and in all spiritual and religious spheres.

I first witnessed saccharine spirituality growing up in the Christian church I was raised in. I remember how the church abandoned, passively shunned, and ignored one of the women who had been attending the church for 20+ years. This woman’s husband had been prosecuted for child molestation and was going to prison. I was the only one who spoke to this gentle soul, despite the fact that we were all supposed to be “brothers and sisters in Christ.”

I now witness this type of abandonment and hypocrisy in the spiritual realm.

I hear and witness self-described sensitive “empaths” show an extraordinary lack of empathy and self-entitled judgment towards others.

I watch “old souls” tear each other apart like animals.

I see spiritual seekers ostracize and react harshly to any person who thinks critically.

I look on as “healers” rush to fix, ignore, predict, or diagnose the suffering of others.

I watch as “psychics/mystics/witches/yogis” (*insert spiritual label here*) love talking and posting about themselves, but ignore meeting others on a deep level.

I’m sorry. I don’t care if you’re a talented healer or psychic. I’m not interested in whether you’re a self-identified empath or spiritual seeker. I don’t want to hear about how much mystical power or intuitive prowess you have. Being spiritual doesn’t mean sh*t if you can’t hold space for people.

What Does Holding Space Mean?

Holding space is very simple. It means being completely present with another person. Holding space means giving another the opportunity to be completely heard, seen, and understood. I’m not talking about trying to fix, give advice to, or pathologize the other person — when I say holding space, I mean it in the most simple way possible: just being 100% there for the person, without trying to change or force advice onto them.

To witness another person and be completely receptive to what they have to share is scarcely practiced. How often have you felt deeply heard, seen, and understood by another? How often has someone sat down with you and genuinely asked: “Hey, share with me how you feel” and held space for all your joy or sorrow? If you’re like most people: pretty rarely.

It’s no wonder that most of us are so emotionally starved. It’s no wonder that most of us are so desperate to be seen.

In a world full of stress, incessant business, emotional isolation, and self-absorption, holding space for someone is the most precious gift you can give. That is why I say that being spiritual doesn’t mean shit without this one important practice. Who cares if you possess extrasensory gifts or can meditate for six hours straight? Who cares if you have deep self-knowledge or can enter alternate planes of consciousness at will?

If you can’t bring those skills into your life in a down-to-earth way, they mean nothing.

If you can’t practically apply them in the blood-and-grit of daily life, they mean nothing.

If you can’t connect or show kindness to others, they mean nothing.

If you can’t sit down with a person and ask “Hi. How are you really?” and actually listen wholeheartedly, don’t even bother.

In the end, if your brand of spirituality encourages self-absorption and a superficial feel-good denial of other’s pain, it’s a waste of time.

“Your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your longings, your fearful thoughts: they are not mistakes, and they are not asking to be ‘healed.’ They are asking to be held.” ~Jeff Foster

 

How to Hold Space for People

Holding space is about giving space.

Too often we jump to the part where we want to fix, instruct, or heal the person — or even worse, hog the conversation, talk about ourselves, and “one-up” the other person’s pain. But the truth is, most people (including ourselves) are just looking for a person who will sit with them in all of their joy or misery, and BE.

Mindful presence is the core of what holding space means. In other words, holding space means that we simply sit with a person and give them our undivided attention in the spirit of kindness.

“Undivided attention!?” you may think, “I don’t have the energy to do that!” Don’t worry. I realize that holding space for others isn’t always possible. You’re not alone. If you’re anything like me, your energy reserves are very limited. So it’s unrealistic to expect ourselves to always hold space for others, especially when we are tired, stressed, or sick. In which case, don’t be a martyr. Take care of yourself. Have a break. Step away. Have a nap. Top up your energy reservoir.

But if you’re still struggling to hold space for others, there might be a deeper underlying issue that you need to work through.

For example, do you often feel yourself talking over or interrupting others? Do most of your conversations center around your issues, thoughts, and feelings? Do you feel uncomfortable when others get too emotional? Do you find deep topics of conversation unsettling? These are all signs that you aren’t holding space for yourself. In such a case… how can you hold space for others when you aren’t holding space for yourself?

If we ever hope to grow at a deep level and feel authentically connected to others, we need to learn how to hold space for both ourselves and others.

Here’s how to do that.

Holding space for ourselves and others:

1. Mindfully tune into yourself

How can you become receptive and open to others without doing the same for yourself? Tuning into your thoughts and feelings is a practice called mindfulness. It requires you to become curious about what is going on inside of you. And to do that, you’ll need to slow down and breathe a little. Ask yourself, “How am I feeling at the moment?” “What type of thoughts/stories are running through my head?” Also be attentive to your body and notice whatever sensation, ache, or pain you feel. Simply note how you feel and move on with your day. If you need help doing this, I highly recommend that you use an app I use called ‘Calm’ — it will motivate you to develop mindfulness as a skill.

2. Be transparent with yourself

Express how you feel in an authentic way. Allow yourself to be seen by yourself. To do this, find a notebook or journal that you can dedicate to your thoughts and feelings. Journaling every day about what is worrying or concerning you will create more clarity in your life. Not only that but when you make this therapeutic tool a habit, you will feel more emotionally balanced and capable of truly holding space for others.

3. Release pent-up emotions

Don’t allow your emotions to build up inside of you. Find healthy outlets to express them such as through artwork, intense exercise, catharsis, or simply having a good cry. When we are motivated to “help” others out of the need to relieve our own internal discomfort, we’re not being kind. We’re not being empathetic. We’re just not. Instead, we are using others as a way to feel better about ourselves. Finding a safe form of catharsis will allow you to be calm and centered enough to show compassionate attentiveness to yourself and others.

4. Learn to listen more than talk

Master the art of listening. If you are a person who is used to chattering away, experiment with being quiet and allowing others to talk. How do you feel when you don’t talk so much? You might feel a sense of relief, or alternatively, you might feel unseen or ignored. Journal about these feelings. If you feel uncomfortable with allowing others to speak more than you, ask yourself “why?” In what ways are you depending on others to be seen and understood, rather than yourself? Practicing active listening involves making eye contact, letting others speak uninterrupted, indicating that you understand what the person is saying, and listening without judgment.

5. Let your mind be like water

Listen to other people without forming responses in your mind. How often has someone shared something interesting, and you miss the rest of what they say because you’re too busy constructing a clever/insightful reply? It’s tempting to fill the spaces in conversations with thoughts. After all, our minds think around 800 words per minute, compared to 125-150 words we speak per minute. But experiment with listening wholeheartedly to what a person says. If thoughts come into your mind, gently refocus your mind on what the person is saying. Then, after the person has stopped talking, give yourself a few seconds to gather thoughts, then respond. I promise that your response will be much more engaging and interesting to the other person because you have gathered all the nuances and details (instead of prematurely forming a response).

6. Let compassion guide you

The purpose of holding space for another isn’t to be a saint. It isn’t to be a martyr. It is to be entertained or to get karmic brownie points. To hold space for a person is an act of compassion, an expression of love for another human being. It not only makes you feel good, but it also makes the other person feel seen, heard, and understood. What could be more precious than that?

7. Practice with a friend or family member

An easy way to practice holding space is to schedule time every week with someone close to you, and to exchange mindful presence with each other. Notice how it feels to be completely received by another person. Imagine giving that to others on a regular basis!

8. Know your limits and take self-responsibility

Are you tired, cranky, overwhelmed, or otherwise incapable of holding space for another? Relax. It’s normal and 100% fine to feel that way. But make sure that you take responsibility for how you feel.

Final Thoughts

Holding space for others doesn’t mean that you have to be a pushover, doormat, or unnecessarily submissive person. Sometimes you will need to hold space for yourself more than others. Sometimes you will enter long periods of life where you are incapable of being present with others. That is normal. Not all of us can be Eckhart Tolle 24/7. So do the compassionate thing and draw a line. Learn to say a gentle no to others and be OK with it. If someone is becoming overly clingy or needy, be assertive, draw clear boundaries, and step away in a firm but caring manner. It is OK to be selective about who you hold space for, particularly if you dislike the person and struggle to stay present with them. (Hey, we’re all human!)

You might also be short on time, but still wish to hold space for another. In this case, explain to the other that you only have a couple of minutes to spare, or set another date and time to catch up.

Remember, holding space needs to come out of a place of compassion and the desire to help others be seen, heard, and understood. If you are doing it out of obligation, pressure, or duty, take a step back. Change course. Do something else.

The most important ingredient for holding space for another is the ability to hold space for yourself. By genuinely taking the time to wholeheartedly listen to your inner thoughts and feelings, you will be better equipped to show the same to others.

Spirituality is not just about learning to love ourselves. It is also about learning to extend that love and care to others in a down-to-earth way. One of the best and easiest ways to do that is by simply listening to others. You don’t need to always give them pep talks. You don’t need to always rush to prescribe a solution to their problems. Often, what people need the most is just a person who is receptive enough to simply listen without judgment.

To be completely seen, heard, and understood in the presence of another living soul is one of the most healing forces in the world. I hope you take the time to share this gift with others.

NEZEL PADAYHAG: “It’s Better To Do Nothing Than Do Things For The Wrong Reasons”

It is but human conditioning to do desirable things to avoid doing things that are not desirable. This is the dilemma for most of us. In so doing, when we have done the things that are desirable by every human soul, we expand our egos and secretly tell others: Look at me, I’ve done it. I’m good.

We then become self-righteous, judging others for their meager progress. This is most especially true for most people who offer service in religious or other similar advocacies.

Glorifying people for their good deeds while not bad in itself, it still coupled with negative effects, especially when the person receiving the glorification is spiritually immature.

It’s better not to do things than do it for the wrong reasons. I desire heaven because that is where I come from. There is no need for me to avoid hell because, heck, I’ve been there!

DEJAN DAVCEVSKI: “This July Rant From The Heart — Get Up, Brush Off, Look Straight, Love Stronger…”

Every person, once they take a glimpse of their purpose, once their heart fills up with joy, motivation and excitement, thinks they can tackle anything on their way.

But as you start following your purpose, the joy, motivation and excitement slowly fade away because that’s normal for emotions. The path gets harder. You start facing obstacles.

Suddenly the people around you, people you love and care about turn against you. Some friends might even ridicule you. Others might think you are crazy.

Many people judge you, they question your sanity, you might even question your own sanity. False opportunities open up, distractions multiply.

Suddenly it seems that everyone around you is having more fun than ever but you have to follow your purpose.

You have to do things that bring you closer to your dream.

And let’s be clear, most of the things you need to do are not fun at all. They are mundane tasks that are necessary.

You might even doubt if it’s worth it.

And as you doubt there will be just enough push from The Universe and signs around you to remind you why you fo what you do.

And you will have just enough will to continue, if you choose to. And as you continue, more obstacles will come.

There will be moments all you want is to just take a breath, to pause for a second, but in those moments problems will arise. They will try to kick you when you are down.

And if you quit, you will be relieved for a day. But the next day you will do anything to not have quit.

Because when we are tired we want to rest, when we are cold we want to be hot, when we are thirsty all we want is to drink something.

But if we drink something unhealthy, at first we will feel better, but later we will regret. We regret it because it’s not what we really wanted.

It’s because our mind knows what you want momentarily, but if you listen to your heart it knows what you really want. And sometimes, what you really want will not be comfortable.

So as you follow your purpose, and as these obstacles start ganging up on you, beating you down, do not quit.

Take the beating, get up, brush up.

Look at them, look at them straight at their eyes, smile and keep doing what you did.

You will get closer to your dream, and then problems will arise again. And they will still try to beat you up.

But again, get up.

Brush up.

Look at them straight.

Smile and keep going even harder at tackling your dream.

People will judge, problems and obstacles will arise, distractions will show, you will doubt yourself, you will feel confused, you’ll be tired.

But if you don’t quit everything will pass.

As these things try to knock you down, they might sometimes succeed. But it’s ok. It’s not about who is stronger, it’s about who is more persistent.

Get up, brush off, look straight, and love even stronger!

And there will come a moment when these things cannot even hurt you anymore because their beating has made you stronger.

And you’ll thank them as you make your beautiful dream a reality and follow your purpose.

KARA SCHALLOCK: “More…”

Do you perceive Beauty everywhere?  Do you see it even when the intellect says it’s ugly?  Do you perceive a difference between you and those you judge to be “less than” like so-called immigrants, those you judge that linger in 3D (according to you), folks who hurt others?  Or do you perceive a difference between you and those you deem “more than?”  Remember, we are all One.  You are connected with everyone and everything.  There is no “us and them” in the New.  You may observe some doing things you wouldn’t choose to do.  Can you see that perhaps the “others” help you transform all lower energies (and integrate higher energies) in yourself?  Can you see the Love within all that reflects the Love that you are?  If so, you indeed are firmly in the New.  If not, perhaps there’s more work to do.  You can love all and yet choose not to be in relationship with those who vibrate differently than yourself.

There is and has been an expansion of your Heart and Crown chakras.  This expansion helps you be more accepting and compassionate.  Be aware of how you feel moment to moment.  One minute you seem to be flowing in expansion and the next minute not feeling as though anything has shifted.  This fluctuation is how it is for most as we continue to detach from 3D and embrace the New.  Some physical manifestations you may experience as expansion occurs are tingling (especially in or on the head and in and around the Heart).

You may feel dizzy as well, yet notice the choices you are making; notice how you are expanding; especially in your thoughts and actions.  Notice how fearless you are.  Be aware too that if it seems things happen to you, like others not choosing to be around you or being fired from a job or not having enough money, that it still is your choice… whether it’s a conscious one or not. Remember you attract to you what is within your consciousness.  Breathe, flow and ground.  Take care of yourself.  What life do you choose to create?  The energies that integrate within you help you create your ideal life (based on how you want to feel) without chaos or confusion.

As the energy continuously builds, remind yourself that you are not alone, even though many are on different paths and going at different speeds.  Some may feel exhilerated, while others are anxious and angry.  I notice that the ones I truly feel connected with are children, while some adults in my life seem belligerent. (Hmmm; do I have both energies within me?)

Engage where and when you can as you are called to and let the rest go, for each being must choose for themselves.  You need not become definsive or match others’ vibration or take anything personally.  Stand in your own Truth and honor others for wherever they may be.

Never doubt that all we’ve been doing is merging with our Soul/GodSelf/Divinity.  This is our True Self.  Being fully immersed as our True Self, there is no more seeking outside of ourselves; actually, there is no seeking at all; there is only a Knowing.  This immersion is more than being “spiritual”; this is true being.  How do we do this?  First, we must release and transform all old patterns, emotions and beliefs, along with anything that limits or holds us back in duality.  When we clear all of the old, we experience true self-worth.  We experience true Wholeness; not just in one moment, but in every moment; this is being authentic.  We truly know that we are One with all of life; we are Source.

Generally speaking, the phase we are in now, if you’re ready and committed, is to practice; putting all you know into action everyday and in every moment… walking your talk.  It is not enough to read others’ words only; it is essential to put words into action, to be what you say you are.  Work for all; be in Divine Service.  When we serve all, we serve ourselves and most importantly, we serve Divine Will.  Isn’t that one of the main reasons of why we’re on Earth at this time?  We each have a path; a mission; it is based on our gifts and where we are drawn.  When you are Joy, you trust, you love, you serve.  You are free.

Meanwhile, continue to release and trust your process.  Allow yourself to not be comfortable, for the New is not comfortable.  Trust that all is in Divine Order.  You may want your loved ones to join you, yet trust they have their own path, so honor them.  Attempting to change others is of the old and it not only distracts you, but pushes them further away.

Trust that as you become somewhat comfortable in one phase of your Journey, another arrives.  It is so very important to take care of yourself through diet, rest and being still.  Only you know what is self-loving for you.  Fill your own cup first and then you will be able to serve others unconditionally.

In my own life, I see so much has shifted. People I was once close with have distanced themselves.  My diet has shifted, as have so much in my life.  The biggest shift is that I am extremely aware of not only where I resist, but where others resist as well.  I notice old longings surface and I see where I am; whether it’s here, there, nowhere and everywhere.  I know many of you can relate to this ebb and flow of life.

Each of us has a calling.  No one calling is better or worse than another.  Each is an aspect of Divine Service; be it healing, collecting refuse, nursing, teaching or simply being Love without a career of any kind.  Sometimes you’re called to be somewhere.  When you arrive, you may not resonate with the place at all.  However, there are no mistakes.  Some years ago, I was called to Idaho.  I had never even heard of it before and when I arrived I uttered, “Uh-oh!”  Idaho has never felt like home to me and yet I am here; I’m here for a purpose.  It’s not necessary to know what that purpose is and you don’t need to know the whys of where you are either.  The main thing to do is to say Yes.  We share our Light no matter where we are or what we do.

Each of us is unique; what works for one may not work for another.  This is why it’s essential to follow one’s own guidance.  We integrate Light and release all uniquely.  Realize too that much occurs without us consciously willing it to be so.  We can observe the changes and I do love this, as when the changes bypass the separate ego, they cannot be interfered with.  However, we on a deeper level choose everything; consciously or not.  When we give our Power away to others, we stop our own Transformation, for others cannot truly know what is best for us.  This allows us to take full Responsbility for our own Transformation.  What helps this is to fully merge with our Souls and then step out of the way.  Instead, we follow our guidance, even when it makes no sense.  While we surrender to the unconscious aspect of evolution, we still must act in a way that goes beyond the separate ego; the patterns we have anchored that are of the old.

To integrate the higher frequencies that bring healing and wholing to our cells and DNA, we must do the clearing work.  Some happens spontanously; with others we consciously choose to shift.  Whether we integrate unconsciously or consciously, we may experience many physical sensations such as electrical currents in different parts of our body, weight fluxes, sleep disturbances, headaches, blurry eyes (or as if there is something irritating in the eye), shifts in elimination and all sorts of things not mentioned here.  When in doubt, ask your body and your guidance to see if it’s related to Ascension or not (it usually is!).

Be aware that your Sensitivity is expanding and upgrading.  This includes more acute hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling and more.  Certain situations may be irritating.  If you feel overloaded by stimuli, rest or step away.  If you take things personally, realize this is not true Sensitivity; it’s separate ego-sensitivity.  It also means that you may still be attached to what others think of you.  Let this go so you may experience true Sensitivity.

Are you ready to move onto new phases of Discovery?  Are you committed to your Ascension and evolving into being New; brand New?  Are you still teetering on the edge, not sure if you want to jump?  Wherever you are is fine.  Trust yourself and follow your guidance/Intuition.

PHILLIP J WATT: “4 Ways the New Age Movement Has Tricked You”

While I don’t 100% agree with this article, it brings up a few good points… and chuckles… 🙂

painting-edit

In a mad world, we all want some philosophical salvation. Let’s make sure it’s based in truth, though.

The new age movement has a lot good stuff to offer. It provides a general pathway to realizing our essential nature so we can step into our strength as an energy having a human experience. It also opens up doors to self-healing, self-sustainability and selflessness.

Yet, there are many harmful ‘beliefs’ that circulate it too.

This is not by accident either; as we all should know by now there is a shadow order who have very strict intentions about humanity’s future, especially building a world-wide centralized control-system which is dressed up in a pretty outfit so it’s welcomed by the masses. Anyone who has their critical thinking engaged can see that this dark occult agenda has influenced the new age movement, just like it has with basically everything else.

The fact remains that the divide and conquer strategy is rampant among the truth and freedom movements. Fear has also been injected into the hearts of not just those who are slurring from their slumber, but truth-seeking veterans. Not only that, certain concepts and themes have been pushed within spiritual circles to not just deactivate us, but dehumanize us too.

It is in this light that it’s important to discuss 4 key failures of the new age movement that the elite amplify as a tool to keep us passive and off track.

1. Everything is Meant to Be

If everything is meant to be, we have no free will because we were always going to make the decisions we choose. Now of course this sounds absolutely ridiculous to most of us because we do in fact make free choices within the context of our lives.

Yet, that doesn’t mean that destiny doesn’t exist. Destiny is the evolutionary path of our energy, which some people call the soul. However, there are an infinite amount of ways we can undertake that growth. That’s where fate, or freewill, kicks in. Our choices can manifest our destiny in manifold ways, as they emit and attract their own energy within the electromagnetic grid. Combined with our energetic blueprint and our subconscious wiring, as well as all the other minds of consciousness, we then co-create our reality.

That’s why the new age ‘law of attraction’ is another complete failure, because it doesn’t account for the other factors contributing to our co-creative role.

So not everything ‘is meant to be’. We can only choose within the limits of our blueprint and subconscious, but we still have free choice. That’s why this concept has been welcomed into the new age movement by the elite power structure, because it simply makes us inactive. Instead of saying “No, this is not okay and we need to do something about it”, we say “it’s just all part of the divine plan”.

And that’s exactly what they want us to think.

2. Don’t Judge

There are many definitions to all words, which is why one meaning over the other has been pushed through the new age movement as a deception play.

Of course judging somebody in a way which makes you feel better than them because they might think or act different, or have different characteristics, is definitely unhealthy. The reality is however, that everybody judges. We continuously do assessments and form conclusions about what we want to eat, what we want to do, and what we want to say. For example, everything written here is a judgment.

The confusion of ‘not judging’ should be focused on ‘not looking down on others’, including pretending we know another person’s story. That’s basically it; everything else we need to form judgments on for our own health and growth. We need to make sure we continuously assess, conclude and repeat, particularly around what’s working and what’s not, not just for ourselves, but the outside world too.

Some people say to discern, which of course makes sense, because discernment is simply good judgment. And we need to use this capacity to work out what the hell is happening in the world so we can call out the dysfunction and build something more aligned to the freedom and health of our human family.

So the aim is to judge in healthy, wise, fair and true ways, instead of not judging at all. And that scares the control-matrix brilliantly too, as you then might judge them for what they really are and then join forces to collectively do something about it.

3. Let Go of Your Ego

Let’s get straight to the core on this one; the new age movement is full of egotistical fundamentalists who advocate for letting go of the ego. It’s an utterly hypocritical disgrace, in my judgment.

And not just that; the amount of dysfunctional egoic reactions I’ve witnessed after suggesting they should empower and expand their ego, not pretend that it doesn’t exist, is astounding. The irony certainly gives me a good belly laugh.

As indicated above, there are many meanings to words. The core definition of the ego is simply ‘the sense of self’ or ‘the I’. We are in fact, an ego. All animals have some sense of their self too, no matter how primitive, so they have an ego as well. If a soul has a sense of self, so does it.

Now of course I’m not referring to the definition of ego which reflects excessive pride or competitiveness with others. That is definitely one aspect of the self that is unhealthy, misguided and outright dangerous. But when it comes to having a healthy sense of self, one who understands both its interconnected and individual layers of truth, it’s a win/win.

The elite want you to let go of your ego because it will make you very passive and devoid of color. Have you watched people who think they’re gods gifted gurus? They’ve basically got no personality, they’re not engaging all their human qualities, and they’re essentially boring as batshit. Plus, off the camera they’re just as human as you or I.

That’s why they’re the perfect vehicle for herding the sheep, because they feed all of us this new age bullshit. Whether they know it or not, they subtly endorse the condemnation of the human experience, such as that we should feel guilty for not sitting in a cave for fifty years until we transcend our humanity and become one with the source.

Well, if wanted to hang with the source, we wouldn’t have chosen a human experience would we. Simply, we need to embrace all our realities. That includes both the truth of awareness and the truth of self-awareness, and then synthesize and shamanize the fuck out of that duality.

4. There is No Right or Wrong

Really? Then there is no truth and untruth? There is no morality? Bullshit. This concept is just another psy-op to make you into a human-less zombie.

Now of course on the level of oneness, there is no right and wrong. They are one and the same thing. But in our dualistic construct, called ‘being a human’, it definitely exists. For example, the golden rule is spot on when it comes to basic law. Do no harm to others, respect each others health and freedom, and live according to your own love, honor and truth.

In this construct, that is right. Anything in contrast, is outrageously wrong.

There are also many other examples. There are truths, and lies. There are positives, and negatives. There is healthy, and unhealthy. And there is love, and fear.

So it’s just another brainwashing technique to say “there is no good or bad, all is neutral”. Once again, it is true on the stage of source, but in our embodiment it is a bold-faced lie.

Final Thoughts

There are many other new age deceptions that are designed to keep us a little minion of the system. Examples are ‘transcend our emotions’, ‘everything is love’, ‘the only truth is one’, ‘ascend your humanity’ and ‘the objective world doesn’t exist’.

This cannot be emphasized enough; there are many layers to our existence and there are many layers of truth. Just because one thing is true on one level, doesn’t mean it is on another. We need to use our brains to judge what is going on, because we’re not in this playground to just play, we’re also here to both individually and collectively learn, heal and grow.

And one more thing; if you want to use your ego to judge what the truth is, make sure you accept that you’re using your ego to judge what the truth is.
