We Don't Know What We Don't Know ~

We Don't Know What We Don't Know ~

This concept is well known in all circles of 'inner work' but what about its impact in our lives when we or those around us do not practice uncovering our blind spots?

I am writing about this because I have heard myself say, over and over of late, "Are you deaf, dumb and blind, Tommy?!" ~ psychically, of course, because rude unless the person is a direct student of mine and mostly because the individuals in question would not hear it anyway.

The Impact Zone ~

The Impact Zone ~

The recent new moon produced a wave of transformation, whose immediate after-effects are an impact zone. More important than any alignment is the way in which we surf the impacts of what is changing in our lives. Surfing advice ‘101’.

Is Your Love Strong Enough?

Is Your Love Strong Enough?

What would you do if someone you love was in danger? We all think we know the answer to that, right? Something along the scale of 'whatever it takes' to 'it depends.' 

What if that someone or something was clinging to the very thing that was the cause of every trouble, every nightmarish occurrence, every hurt, and would ultimately cause the demise of your someone or something? What if the very thing they cling to is that which will pull them under?

As Awareness Opens ~

As Awareness Opens ~

As a camera aperture closes and opens to freeze-frame a moment in space-time,  so do our incarnations flow.

When the aperture opens, we perceive more than our remaining limitations. We see past the defaults, knowing them for the friends that allowed us to lead a certain kind of life. We become freedom itself.

The Path to the Stars ~

The Path to the Stars ~

As beings of light, we are ever at the ready to shed the trappings of any experience of reality, no matter how attached we might be to that experience, to journey further on our homeward path.

Exiting the more confining realities of this world has always required fortitude, courage and just plain 'huevos.' If you know what I mean. When a planetary being like our Gaia goes through such a transit, calving all the way, every being within her sphere is catapulted forward in an amplified way. We face our perceived illusions of mortality over and over again in accelerated succession.

For the next seven years (approximate earth space-time) every being living on Gaia will participate in a vast experiment in consciousness. Source is taking over the "Gaian Experiment". What does that mean? Everything systematized, especially by the 'powers that were', is being broken down into its particles within the Great Waves of luminosity from which all things flow. Losing the poetry? All old forms are dissolving and re-forming.

We are entering the transition of transcending closed systems. This begins with ideology and cosmology; our internal and external systems of thought and of 'how things work' in the multiverse.

Which means, of course, that what is really being discussed is flow, surrender, and abundance. Where do our societally and culturally conditioned minds go with that? Money. Honestly? I'm bored with 'money' as a topic so let's go where this really needs to go. 

So let's talk mountains. One of the prevailing mythologies in all human cultures is the mountain. There are as many mountain metaphors as there are people to speak them. Choose your favorite. My personal fave, long ago and lifetimes away, was the one from Sound of Music. Climb every mountain! Set to music, of course, because that delivery system really is unsurpassed.

As 2017 ends and 2018 begins, we are moving into a new 7-year cycle. From now until 2025, the transition from the transformations of the past few years will manifest in the physical world. 2018 begins this. Time to move into new realities and manifest what we have truly envisioned.

What does that stand for? Other People's Emotions. Something we all contend with during the holiday season. You may already be adept at discerning what emotions are yours and which feelings running through you belong to others... or maybe not. When it comes to family this can be complicated.

The Web of Eternality ~ Wholistic Positioning of Attention

The Web of Eternality ~ Wholistic Positioning of Attention

I have been writing, lately, about Infinite connections. One semi-observation was that 'oh, wherever I am, or better said, where a vortex of grace exists, connections are made. ' Connections that light up between people, places, mystical realms. I used to wonder if I was the only one observing this as it happened. Given that we create and experience our unique versions of reality at every moment, it would stand to reason that 'I' would be observing the lighting up of connectivity within my experience. It would also stand to reason that others might or might not be observing this same set of circumstances, depending on how they might be creating and experiencing their realities.

The essence of living a High Frequency Life is inspiration. This is a life of inspiration as currency. We live by, for, and through what inspires us. If this sounds unrealistic or a bit 'Pollyanna', keep reading!

Let's Talk Liftoff ~

Let's Talk Liftoff ~

During a rocket launch, there is a lot of smoke, noise, a buildup of energy on the ground, the falling away of the support structure that held the rocket in place...and, finally, the big stack of fuel-and-engine stuff begins to slowly move skywards. As the vehicle moves past the atmosphere (boundary of an old reality) it sheds stages of the launch apparatus. Once in 'space' what remains of the vehicle is a tiny conical tip of what was a giant iceberg, surfing a reality that has been left behind. The cockpit is, finally, 'above the water line' of planetary consciousness and the formations of its realities.

Here it comes. Soon now. The big bounce of this year's Equinox energies... the Solstice and a further splitting of worlds looming a few months away. Sitting here in the full moon energies that kept me up and fully present all night long, I am inundated with feeling.

I forget sometimes, how inundating this world is. I 'forget' that the collective, mind-merged consensus that pretends to be consciousness surrounds and permeates almost everything. 'How could I forget?' some ask. It does press on one, does it not? (I'm smiling here.)

'Forget' is a less than exact word. Ignore is better. I ignore how inundating this world can be... the constant close-to-annihilating din of what humans call life. The stream of sounds that our auditory channels learn to filter out and that our psychic channels perceive but are not allowed to register. Why not? It hurts too much. Like a dog exposed to constant thunderstorm activity, our psychic channels cower and try to close down in self-protective shielding.

When we, the sensitives, the empaths, the starstreams, (you know who you are and I'm talking about beings like us) have bodies in a world like this one, we learn to close off certain receptive channels. Some days we close them all. Those can be good days. For us. Maybe not for others. Maybe not for us. We won't know until we find another way.

Today I have the building to myself for awhile. The other inhabitants are elsewhere, the property caretaker is busy with outdoor activities, our rescue dog is resting in his favorite shady hideout. Time out. Time out of timeliness. Time off from 'having to ignore'.

So what does one do with a spot of quiet? Or a spot of anything that feels a bit like "oh thank goodness?" I listen. This is not a new thing. It is something we come in with, this listening, this feeling, seeing and knowing. I remember. So do you.

Listening to the indigenous stone that forms the property walls, taken from the ground on which they stand. Listening to the standing people, the beautiful green world of trees. Listening to the transplanted grass of the 'Verde Americano' variety, popular here because it takes root in 'nothing' and grows so thickly. Hmm. Aptly named? That remains to be seen.

I turn off the incessant hum of electronics ('el refrigerador' really does make an awful din!) in order to listen more deeply. Then I remember. Every time. I am listening into the stillness, the silence that is the deepest, the only true well of all things. In this, I rest and am rejuvenated.

"Within you there is a stillness and sanctuary

to which you can retreat at any time

and be yourself." ~ Herman Hesse

One way to find this stillness in the physical world is at altitude. My Teacher advised us to journey to locations above 5,000 feet because that is where the 'thought line' cuts off and you can actually hear what there is to hear above its cacophony.

I find that one has to climb higher these days (if using that method). I lived at just over 8 thousand feet for five years and can report that it was sublime. Six thousand didn't do it. I had to be just above 7 thousand... but that is only one way.

Another way is to be next to a body of water, preferably the largest possible, or water that is in motion like a river or stream.  The negative ions produced by that environment help to mitigate psychic noise. Most sensitives love the water, don't you find?

So here I sit, in the jungle at sea level, in a land full of magic that is a little rough around the edges for my taste, but potent nonetheless. And I listen. I observe how this ferocity and the overt nature of the life force here is what is needed by some. I observe how my body has responded to this influx of chi with health, vitality, and healing... and how it and 'I' also need a more refined magic. I need the deepest wells. I crave the palpable well of silence.

I learned to 'listen' while in meditation in big cities, with no quiet to be found. I learned to listen while sitting in the deep woods or on the moors as a child. Where or when did you learn to listen? Have you forgotten how important this is? A hint: The body remembers when the mind does not.

One of the most important components of listening is feeling. This is wholistic receiving. Becoming that receiving tower, turning off the broadcast function completely for once. 

A full moon moment is a moment to give thanks for all that we receive. A moment to wonder at the fruit that, almost ripe, has not yet fallen into our waiting hands.

I listen for where I might be thankful for some things and want others to go away or change. Those wishes might be preferences or they might be pure and simple egoic arrogance. When I listen I always know the difference. As do you in your moments.

Humans have such strange ideas about moments, about gratitude and about life. The best solution is always listening. Listening to others, (at least for a few moments and if it doesn't feel good then excuse yourself and exit) listening to the natural world, listening to our bodies. And most importantly listening to life.

Today I am listening to 'my life'. What is it telling me? What 'secrets' have I allowed to remain hidden that might want to bask in the amplified spotlight of this full moon? What gems of real truth lie silently sparkling? 

Today I listen to the light... today and every day if I am honest. When that reservoir is full, even the most boisterous (and noisy) experiences and activities carry me into joy.

I love the following quote. I had a small plaque engraved with this that inspired me through my schooling years.  Now I have one small edit, courtesy of many years of 'awake' on this world.

"My dear, in the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm...In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me there is something stronger, pushing right back."
~  Albert Camus

My edit? " ...no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there is something stronger, that knows no need to push at all." ~Nalini

What are you listening to today?

Oh gosh, I have to turn on the fridge, the ice cream is melting!!!

Happy Transformations!
