Clearing Out

Well, summer is bearing down upon us. With the rising temperatures here in the South Eastern Corner of Washington state into the triple digits, we feel like we are melting. Maybe it’s just me.

At any rate, with the rising heat often comes rising issues. It’s like the heat bakes them out of us. What we thought we’ve dealt with and cleared surfaces again. Only it really stinks as the hot sun of awareness hits it.

Again! I have to deal with this again!!

Apparently so. But here’s the deal. When we deal with stuff that rises to the surface again, it means that we are getting closer to the root. Those roots go deep and entangle themselves around all aspects of our awareness. It’s imperative to do the weeding that presents itself – as it presents itself.

But, how do we do that.

We look at it.

We refrain from judging it. That includes judging ourselves about that issue or judging others about that issue. It may stink and it may hurt, but blame and shame hurt and stink worse! Just notice what’s in your awareness. (My cat brought in a dead rabbit the other day. It smelled really bad! Old judgments of shame and blame smell even worse!)

Your awareness is like a child with a magnifying glass and a piece of paper. In just a few seconds, that piece of paper is going to smoke and catch fire. The fire of your awareness can now burn off any old crud that has risen into your consciousness.

Is it that simple? Simple, yes. Easy, no. It’s not easy to really look at stuff. It’s not easy to view it without judgment. It’s not easy to let go of blame and shame. If it’s not their fault and it’s not my fault, then . . . what is it?

It’s a thing that happened.

It’s a thing that hurt terribly or your memory would not have retrieved it. However!!! The memory retrieves these things not to further harm us, or to make you feel pain again; but rather the memory gives us one more opportunity to put it in a new perspective and be free of it!

It is the sub-conscious’ wisdom that knows you are ready to be free. Right now! Trust the process to move you out of pain and into freedom.

So, look at any emotional pain with the eyes of Love and Light until you no longer see blame or shame. When the judgment that causes shame and blame falls away, you are free.

Oh, and good news! We get to ask for help with this! Whatever your belief system, there are Beings of Love and Light that await your request for assistance. They eagerly come in as a cleaning crew and assist in clearing this old, stinky, painful stuff out.

It will be like the cool, refreshing evening breeze after a hot day. Bliss!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Energy Fields

You've seen pictures of tulip fields and fields of lavender. Beautiful, aren't they? They never cease to amaze. The vibrant colors and the fragrance of the lavender fill the senses.

So too, the energy fields that you reside within look like this to us. Each person creating their own energy field that blends with the energy fields around them. Just as each tulip blooms for itself and shows its own color, yet situated within a field becomes spectacular. One lavender plant has many stems of blooms, yet combined with a field of other lavender plants, it also becomes stunning.

Does this lessen each plant? No!

So we encourage you to notice the field of energy you find yourself abiding within. Does that field of energy help you expand and grow? Does that energy field seem dry, lifeless and empty? This again, in no way depletes you. You thrive due to your connectedness to the Divine. The field merely allows you and others to be seen more clearly by the outside world. Your brilliance need not depend upon external associations.

At the same time, you may feel blessed by the encouragement of others. So, even though you recognize that your value does not exist outside of yourself, you may reap the benefits of shared energy of like minds.

Whether you walk a lonely sacred path or journey on a spiritual cruise ship, your path is your own to discover. You may find you move in and out of connectedness with other like minds though your connection to Spirit remains steadfast in all things.

Whichever you choose for yourself, we hope you know that we gladly join you in your journey. We adore you and find great joy in assisting you in your time to bloom.

Be well. May your heart-of-hearts bring you peace, joy and love.

Scattered Thoughts

My office is a disaster. I’ve got notes from three classes spread out over most of the open surface. My file cabinets are full. These are on-going classes, so I choose to leave them out rather than figure out where to put another file cabinet.

I’ve also got study material in boxes on the floor for a dormant class that I hope to reactivate.

I have in my heart to teach yet another new class (or two) and that material exists in files waiting to be finalized.

Then there’s the Healing Light Expo stuff that is an ongoing project that I keep in a file box near my chair in case I need to access that information.

GAH!!! This is a physical representation of my brain! Scattered in all directions.

Each direction has value and purpose and importance!

I’m not even going to mention the cat toys that exist in this space.

And then there’s Phil whose idea of filing is stacking things on top of each other. Deepest being oldest. Surprisingly enough, he can find anything by just visualizing how long ago he came across that piece of paper and lifts about 3 month’s worth of debris and ta-daaa! There it is! (Kind of amazing, actually.)

Are you laughing yet? I know I am.

So, here’s a file I can stow in the Expo box. Here is a piece of paper in my copy stand for the Board of Trustees meetings and here is another for the Board sitting to the left of the church calendar. I can put those together. Cat toy next to the stapler can go in the toy basket. A button needing to be sown on an old sweater can go in the mending box. I’ll be right back…

Oh, look! A class I had put together that I never had the opportunity to present! I think the weather was bad last winter so I postponed it. That could be fun! I’ll get it on the calendar!

Oh look! A dust cloth! I will put that to use right now. Wonderful I can now see my desk!

Easy peasy!

Ha ha.

Imagine what our brains look like. We hang on to odd bits and pieces of information and experiences as if they were life and death. Just as my trash can in now full and my desk is now clean, I can release those odd bits and pieces from my awareness. Do I really need to keep old church calendars from month’s past? Nope. I can let those go.

Untaught class material I spent hours creating? Let’s keep that!

So, how do we release all that mental junk?

Same way we release physical junk.

We look at it. We assign it value. Then, depending upon its value, we keep or purge. The trick is the valuation part. When I was 9 years old, my favorite toy had great value for me. That same toy might have some sentimental value, but might be something I could allow another child to play with. Looking at it stirs up memories and feelings. When we release a thing, the memories and the feelings may remain or they may dissipate . . . also depending upon what valuation we gave that item/memory. Could be that old toy isn’t salvageable. Maybe it’s worth millions! I get to research and see if it holds value. My valuation may not be accurate.

We tend to give painful memories more value than they are worth.

Why? Because we don’t want to be hurt like that again, so we hold on in order to protect ourselves. Unfortunately, two things happen when we do that. One, we often are hurt in different ways as we journey through life, so we hang on to old painful stuff needlessly. Two, when we hold on to old pain, we are telling the Universe – “Hey! This is important! Pain is important to me!” So, the Universe serves us up more because that’s the unconscious directive we’ve issued.

We’ve heard: “Learn the lesson, then move on.” We translate that to: “Keep that pain active and maybe I’ll see it coming next time.” What “learn the lesson” really means is: discover your part and heal. So, if someone hurt my feelings by talking behind my back, I can keep the pain of betrayal active and move into a state of not trusting; or, I can recognize that I didn’t see the tell-tale signs of that person’s needing approval before I shared myself with them – I now honor myself and recognize my own need for approval when it shows up. This second way offers me the power of choice. I can hold my own council without needing to over-share. When I do find someone who holds the energy of loyalty and honor, I can share myself more deeply.

Which is freeing? Keeping the pain of betrayal active? Honoring one’s self?

What’s really cool about all this is that we only need to bring awareness to our part and the energy attached to the pain disengages and dissipates.

Try it yourself!

What’s an old pain that still haunts you? Did you have a part in that? If not, you can cut yourself free by recognizing you were innocent. If you had a part in it, how can you honor yourself? Choosing to honor yourself also cuts you free.

Freedom is like a clean desk. It allows space to create new things or to focus on things of value.

Just like cleaning my desk, it requires a bit of time and energy, but once done, a lot less energy is expended. Before my desk was clear, I had negative feelings about “all I had to do.” I felt overwhelmed and burdened. Just looking at that cluttered desk sucked energy from me. When in truth, there were just a few things requiring my attention for now. It took a lot more energy to look at the clutter than it did to actually process through to a clean desk.

So, too with old pain. The realization that there is old stuff there to look at seems overwhelming. Yet, just like finding three of four pieces of paper scattered all over my desk that related to the Expo, putting them together and putting them in the file took a lot less effort than experiencing the clutter.

Find one thing that you’d like to release and get clear from. Look at it with the eyes of discernment – not the perceptions of a wounded victim. Did you have a part? No? Trash-can that experience and recognize your innocence as a soul. Did you have a part? Yes? Honor the aspect of yourself that sees the truth of who you are. Be the Sacred Observer and witness your own value. As you discover your value, the pain falls away. Peace descends upon you and you are free!

My desk is not spotless. I still have a few things yet to sort and file. But for now, I have clear space from which to create. As I bring my attention to those final pieces of clutter, I become freer and clearer. It’s a process. I am okay with it not being perfect in this moment.

As you claim/re-claim honor for yourself, you can relax in not having to be perfect in this moment. You get to be freer and clearer in the process.

And that’s a good thing!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – July 9th 2018

The darkness of this physical realm has many discouraged, fearful and distressed.

We wish you could see your physical ream from our perspective! Our closest reference point for you would be seeing the Earth from space. When part of the Earth is bathed in sunlight, the other part is in shadow. Yet this shadow is not without light! The moon and stars illuminate the night. As your satellites show you, cities light up like bright pinpoints of light visible out in space.

So, too, even in the darkness that seems to prevail, pinpoints of light (YOU!) pierce the shadow!

See it for what it is . . . merely a shadow. A shadow of the weakness of the human condition called life.

The Divine Essence that indwells you, dispels this shadow at every turn! Do not loose heart, Dear One! Fix your sight upon the bright light of awareness. This dispels the shadow within you. What you are really afraid of is losing your own light to this darkness. Know this!!! This shadow cannot overtake you! Connect with True Light and darkness flees from you!! Embrace the Light of Love and watch the shadow tremble and run from you.

You are the essence of the Living Light of Love. Dwell in this Truth. You will be blessed and be a blessing to many.

Miracle Moments

We certainly have been having some lovely weather. A bit hot, then a few cools days. A bit of wind, then gentle breezes. Lovely.

As I was outside sitting on the deck just allowing myself to “be” for a few moments before jumping in to the next task, I found myself just enjoying the flowers in the yard.

Last year, I stumbled upon a bright orange Coneflower called “Fiesta”. It lives up to its name and hosts a party every day for bees and butterflies. This year, I stumbled upon a vibrant orange Calla Lilly and a deep burgundy Calla Lilly. I don’t remember their names, yet they were spectacular this spring. As I was noticing this area of the garden, I noticed some bright orange among the green of the Calla Lilly.

Was it blooming again?!

Often spring plants are “forced” to bloom early so they look good for sale. This Calla Lilly had displayed some great orange and yellow blooms (all on the same plant). I decided I’d go look and see if it were true and if there indeed were new blooms. (I was certainly hoping!)

As I got close, all of a sudden I heard a whirring sound and something flew out of the plant and startled me. It was a hummingbird!! Beautiful blue hummingbird! I couldn’t really tell if it was drinking from the Calla Lilly or if it was enjoying the Fiesta Coneflower.

It hovered nearby for just a moment. I backed away, saddened that I had interrupted it’s meal. It darted nearby and hovered a moment and looked at me before it zipped away. What a delightful moment!

I’m so very, very glad that I followed my heart’s desire to see the flowers up close. Had I followed that other part of me that realized it had work to do, I’d have missed that “Miracle Moment” with the hummingbird.

Metaphysically, hummingbirds represent doing the impossible – they fly backwards!

I have lots of things going on in my world that I’d like to accomplish, yet at times, I feel like I don’t know enough tech stuff or have enough energy. I had just been thinking about my heart’s desires to move forward in a couple of new areas and had been entertaining thoughts of doubt.

Little Hummingbird met me to bring me the message that “All things are possible.” I don’t have to do them all, I know people who know stuff . . . The help I require will appear when I need it – unexpectedly perhaps!

All this to say, if you get a nudge to do something, you might want to follow that. Miracle Moments happen when we follow those nudges!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Openness

Stay open. Blessings flow from this openness. What does that mean?

Often human beings get caught up in auto-pilot. The day-to-day hum-drum that poses as life.

This is not living Dear Ones! This is existing. Your soul/spirit calls out for more - much more!

Certainly, daily tasks must be accomplished. Your physical form requires teeth to be brushed, meals to be prepared, eaten and cleaned after. Yet. these tasks are meant to SUPPORT you - not suck the life out of you. You grant them much more importance than they are. We don't wish for you to ignore these. Rather, we wish for you to see them for what they are - support mechanisms by which your physical form can feel safe, clean, healthy and alive.

It is from this aliveness that true living can begin!

By being open.

Divine Source and all the energy beings that are within that domain await your open attention so that they may guide, attend to you, and enlighten you.

The next words you hear in a conversation may be just the information you require for your next step. Be open to hearing. The next thing that you see may have insight or inspiration for your abundance. Be open to seeing. The next moment of peace may hold great restorative energy for your healing. Be open to feeling.

Become willing to allow all of us within the Heavenly Realms an opportunity to serve you. We delight in bringing you answers and insight.

Be open. We await the opportunity to connect with you and lead you into safety and peace.

Message From The Ancient Ones – Trapped

Trapped.

Many feel trapped by life.

No way through the current struggle.

We hear your cries!

You expect that if there is not an instant miracle that the Divine does not hear or know.

You forget! YOU are the MIRACLE!

Your power of choice allows you to take action in your own behalf and in the behalf of the entire world. Your positive thoughts and actions are changing everything.

Just as the winter snow takes days of warmth from the sun to thaw, so, too, your obstacles take days of refraining from the chilling effects of negativity. Negativity is like a cloud that covers the sun and stops the warming effects. The sun still exists! Yet it cannot reach your circumstances with your clouds of doubt, fear and negativity blocking its warmth.

This is not to say you must put your head in the sand and pretend all is well when you are suffering. Rather, begin to allow the Healing Light of Love to penetrate your circumstances by choosing to find that which is good and right and beautiful in your world. Cannot find it? Ask someone what they find as good and right and beautiful! Share in their experience of that!

Negativity or negative circumstances cannot remain as an energy construct if you choose to move into a new pattern of choice. Allow the Light of Love to do its work while you breathe, explore and take the next right step, and find that which is good and right and beautiful.

This speeds the negativity melting cycle.

Become willing to choose this for yourself.

We walk with you. The Light is nearby. So is your breakthrough!
