I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE INCLUSIVENESS OF ALL PERSONS IN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, REGARDLESS OF AGE, SEX, CREED, RACE, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, ETC. I FEEL THAT THE MOVE TOWARD COMPLETE INCLUSIVENESS IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE CURRENT EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS AND IS THERE HOPE FOR CHURCHES TO DO THE WORK THAT WAS INTENDED RATHER THAN JUST PROMOTE THEIR OWN ORGANIZATIONS? HOW CAN WE HELP?
You are speaking of the difference between the true essence or Spirit within Christianity and what has been created as a structure that the Spirit comes through. That structure has become divorced in many cases from the true essence. So you feel unconditional, universal love, which is available and inclusive of all, and you know that that is the truth, and you perceive structures that are no longer serving that truth.
To be assisting of this it is for you to live the truth, to speak the truth, and to begin to create structures that reflect that truth. So if you form an organization of sorts within your Christian church that is all inclusive and based in love and truth, and opens the doors to all regardless of race, creed, gender preferences, etc., but begins to illustrate and demonstrate the love that you experience as the truth, then you are in harmony and you feel it.
In a church there may be those who are attached to the structure, to the positioning within it, to the money that it affords them, to the rules, laws, or dogma that are structures of consciousness within it. They may not move as you would like them to or release their hold on such, but that does not prevent you from moving in that direction and coming into integration, inner and outer, as above so below, the essence and the vehicle of that essence into form.
I HAVE BEEN DATING A MAN FOR 3 MONTHS, AND WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR 6 YEARS. HE SAYS HE IS NOT READY FOR A COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP. I FEEL VERY CLOSE TO HIM AND FEEL "HOME" WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER. I AM CONFUSED BECAUSE I FEEL RIGHT ABOUT BEING WITH HIM, AND I FEEL HE IS GETTING CLOSER TO ME, BUT THEN I GET THIS NO COMMITMENT TALK. ARE WE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER?
You ARE together. The question about whether you are meant to be together implies that there is no purpose in what has already been established. Commitment is something that ones desire for a certain kind of security. The true relationship already exists; the sharing, the friendship, the love, and you have already benefited greatly over the years. Now it is opening to another level. Do not ask for commitment so soon. Open through your heart to what is deeper within your own nature so that you are not dependent on another’s commitment for you to feel secure in yourself or in your trust of what is already present.
Of course there is purpose in you being together, and that purpose is deepening. Let yourself open to the truth without so much attachment to a need for a particular kind of form or promise because of a insecurity or fear that is rising up in you. Look at that place, love it, open it further, let the great embrace of love join you directly, and trust that your relationship is indeed a great gift and treasure it.
I FEEL CALLED TO BECOME A MINISTER AND AM GOING TO TAKE CLASSES. IS THERE SUCH A THING AS A CALLING?
What you are feeling is a call to a greater resonance with you own soul and spirit, and a desire for that to have a vehicle or a way to express itself in form in the world. Ministers have always been in a position that has been equated with spiritual life or assisting others in the spiritual life. For you to open to that place within you that desires greater union with your own spirit, your own essence, and perhaps a desire to assist others and to take this path through the ministry can be a way to honor this within you. As you honor it and acknowledge it it then comes into completion in a sense of balance for you.
In a past lifetime you were persecuted for your beliefs and for being outspoken and for being one who stood for something of truth in spirit. For you this is a way to bring a healing to the place within you that desires to again be public in your beliefs, and in an age where being a minister is a way to do this in a free country. So we give our encouragement to you on your path, and know that this is but a step in an evolution that goes beyond any attachment to any form or position, but for now it is a good step.
WHAT DO I DO NOW? I MUST FILE SOON OR FORGET IT FOREVER. I MUST KNOW IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT OR NEGLIGENCE.
Well, you ask us what to do and it is difficult for us to tell you because that is not our part. Our part is to bring perspective and to assist you to see things from another view and then you make the choices and the decisions. What happens in your life, if you wish to call it accident or negligence or intent or whatever, happens. By looking at the reactions of your own nature, what happens to you during whatever you are experiencing, you find those places within yourself that are yet in pattern, in fear, in judgment, and in separation.
There are no circumstances that are pure accident or pure negligence. A soul is always participating in the experience of what is taking place, and that is calling you to both your inner knowing, your trust in your own nature, and your unfolding in your soul’s growth as well as the wisdom that appears to you in every moment and assists you with every decision. Become calm, breathe deeply, ask your soul to be your wisdom in this decision, and without blame of yourself or another choose wisely regardless of what are other circumstances that might be hovering around the circumference.
I SEEM TO BE OPENING TO SOMETHING STRANGE. I'M SEEING PARTICULAR ENERGY "STRUCTURAL" STUFF NOW AND THEN, AND I WONDER IF YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT IT IS AND WHAT TO DO WITH IT. I MAY SEE A WEB OF ENERGY CONNECTING PEOPLE DURING A HEALING SERVICE, OR A COMPLEX POINTILLISTIC GRID OVER SOMEONE, OR SOMETIMES I SENSE MOMENTS OF CHANGE AND THEN I SEE THAT GRID STRUCTURE AGAIN, MAGNETICALLY INFLUENCING THE "WINDS OF CHANGE". I THINK SPIRIT MEANS THIS TO BE A USEFUL TOOL TO BE USED WITH LOVE IN SERVICE. HOW DO I DEVELOP IT TO IS FULLEST POTENTIAL?
You are beginning to perceive in a conscious way the matrices of consciousness. We call them matrices, you call them grids, it does not matter. Each person has a very complex web or matrix of consciousness, and you are perceiving this in individuals or in a group where they are woven together for common intention, perhaps for healing as an example, and how that can then unify a field and magnify. You are being privileged, in a sense, to witness it.
Yes, there is a collective or larger grid of consciousness. One that is breaking down as well as one that is being created and weaving itself into greater coherency in this time. The winds of change, so to speak, are a sort of transition between grids. When you are in a place where you witness or perceive that the structures of consciousness are no longer weaving light but look a bit dead or lifeless, then they are to be removed to release, whether in an individual, a group, or a collective sense.
Those that have life and light and are weaving within the whole may need some assistance at times to be structurally woven in. Certain places within the whole of consciousness may resist something new being woven, and certain frequencies of the rays of consciousness such as love, joy, beauty, compassion, truth, or wisdom may be needed at times to assist that weaving and release out of consciousness certain areas of resistance or fear.
So you will continue to learn of them, how to work with them, and to be aware of them within yourself. It is a grand opportunity to be on the 'front lines' of the true place of change. The essence of the change is happening within these matrices of consciousness.
IS THERE A REASON WHY I AM HAVING SUCH LOW ENERGY? THERE IS NOTHING OUT OF LINE PHYSICALLY AND I GET PLENTY OF REST. I HAVE EXPERIENCED LOW ENERGY BEFORE, BUT THIS SEEMS AS THOUGH THE LIFE IS JUST DRAINING OUT OF MY BODY AND I AM ABOUT TO DIE. ANY POINTERS YOU CAN GIVE ME?
It is important for you to hold your focus a bit out of the energy that you have sourced in the past, which was more magnetic. Begin to move your energy into a direct alignment with consciousness. Consciousness is a ever-renewing flow of filaments of light and energy that source different levels of your body, psyche, emotions, etc. Often times some women have had a certain amount of magnetic charge connecting them to the earth as part of the feminine connection. The magnetic charge of the earth is shifting right now, and those who have been magnetically charged or emotionally charged now need to move to the next level of relationship with the earth mother so that you are not so dependent on the magnetic field for energy and can source yourself differently.
I'D LIKE SOME ADVICE ABOUT MY THIRD EYE. WHY DOES IT SEEM TO ME THAT I'M NOT RECEIVING THE INFORMATION I WOULD LIKE TO? WHY DID I HAVE CONFUSION AND DEPRESSION IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR AND WILL IT HAPPEN AGAIN?
Two things. One is that information does not only come through the third eye. If the chakras are out of balance or out of alignment with one another, or the backs of the chakras are not open or are contracted, then you will have difficulty receiving information on all levels that you are capable of.
Depression is when there is a movement of energy coming forth that is stopped by fear, resistance, judgment, or perception that something that is coming forth cannot. Your capacity to source a deeper level of information and energy is opening up. If you do not open to it and allow it through you then there is, in a sense, a pushing back down which subsequently leads to depression and perhaps anger. Your nature is one where you are highly perceptive.
It is not just about getting information, it is about listening to the levels of what you know, how you perceive with your senses in your body, how you feel in your body when you are with others, what you know from your perceptions in watching others and your ability to perceive correctly through body language, and how you feel in that place. Then it is for you to either speak what is for you to speak or to act in a way that you are to act. You are more body sensory, which would be second chakra, the heart chakra, and sometimes the root chakra. As these come into balance and the third chakra and the throat are open enough to release through them the action or the speaking, then you also have a consciousness of what you are doing and what you are saying. You may not get the consciousness first. It may come as you speak or as you move since your sensitivities are more linked to the body and the sensory input.
I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING THE DISEASE OF MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY. I HAVE CURRENTLY BEEN TRYING TO HEAL BY REMINDING MYSELF OF THE PERFECTION OF MY BEING, USING AFFIRMATIONS, MEDITATING AND VISUALIZING. HOWEVER, I FEEL A CONFLICT WITHIN WHEN I DO THIS AND A LOT OF CONFUSION. COULD YOU SUGGEST AN ATTITUDE I SHOULD ADOPT AND WHAT I SHOULD DO TO BEST FIND PEACE AND TO HEAL? PLEASE TELL ME ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW.
The conflict comes when you project your perfect image and then the self has a perception of your body that is not what you perceive perfection to be. Your soul is in perfect awareness of both your great self that is always whole or perfect, as well as what you are opening to in this life and in this body through that which you have undertaken. Acknowledge your soul’s wisdom and acknowledge with the compassion that part which you have taken on and let the love and compassion bridge that to your great soul.
Don't try to make anything happen. Form the link and allow the great love of the universe to flow into the place where you have taken this on, where you soul is learning and growing and evolving through this, as well as opening your own awareness so it can complete what you have decided to undertake in this life through this disease. As this bridge of love and light is formed, then more of your own essence comes in and the manifest experience of the disease begins to lessen as your soul strengthens in your body.
We are trying to be as clear as we can be in a few words. Facilitated healing with others who are aware of the etheric body energy would also be helpful.
I AM INTERESTED IN THE EARTH CHANGES. IN RESEARCHING THIS TOPIC I HAVE SEEN MANY PROPHECIES. ARE WE NEAR THE END TIME AS THE HOPIS PREDICT? WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO PREPARE? ARE WE CAPABLE OF CHOOSING TO ASCEND RATHER THAN EXPERIENCE THEM IN THIS EARTHLY FORM WITHOUT "SUICIDE" AS AN ISSUE? DURING THIS TIME WILL OUR LOVED ONES ON THE OTHER SIDE BE ABLE TO HELP US? IF ONE MEDITATES WILL IT ASSIST IN RAISING THE VIBRATIONS ON THE PLANET OR IS IT TOO LATE TO ASSIST? I AM CURRENTLY WORKING TOWARDS BUYING LAND IN THE COUNTRY FURTHER IN THAN I AM NOW. IS IT TOO LATE? I AM PRAYING FOR HEALING OF THE PLANET, MANKIND, AND ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN WHO SEEM LOST.
Obviously the predictions have affected you deeply and have precipitated for you a stirring in the survival instinct. What we would suggest is to realize that you are always within love; universal love and also love that comes from the earth to all of her children. As you meditate do not only link to what you call Spirit, but consciously link to the earth, herself. She is a consciousness, and you are part of her consciousness as long as you are within human form. She has given your body birth, she sustains you magnetically, energetically, through food and sustenance in all different ways.
Yes, there will be some movements or changes in the earth. It is already happening and has been for a long time. The more you are attuned and can listen, the more you will know where to be, when to be there, how to prepare if you need to, and who to be with. The arrangements are not done just by trying to figure it out and listening to those who think they know what is going to happen.
Listen to the earth herself, who is far more aware of what is happening where and when and what is needed. That listening and that link will give you a sense of both assurance as well as an awareness that your soul is evolving as are all souls within this planet and this experience, and what you choose and how you choose to proceed is part of the evolution. If you choose fear you add to fear. If you choose love you add to love. If you choose to bring your alignment with the earth mother and to assist her in whatever ways you are called to, then you add to the evolution of all. That is all choice in this time, and one of the things that is maturing during this time is free will.
If you choose only according to what will help, assist, or save you, then you are choosing from a base of fear. If you choose in accordance with the laws of love and the greater principles of evolution of consciousness, then you know that choice is always the guiding principle as well as the great gift it was intended to be. There is no judgment and there is no need to fear death.
THIS IS A QUESTION ABOUT MY DOG, RUSTY. HE HAS TWO FATTY TUMORS, ONE ON HIS NECK AND THE OTHER ONE ALONG HIS RIBS. I AM WONDERING IF YOU COULD SHED SOME LIGHT ON THE CAUSE OF THE TUMORS, PHYSICAL OR EMOTIONAL OR BOTH, AND WHAT I AS RUSTY'S CARETAKER CAN DO TO HELP?
Two things seem to be affecting this animal. One is that this one has a certain emotional connection and takes on things, and stores them in a sense. There’s even a little bit of worry in this animal. Animals have emotion, they are not free of emotion. They love, they fear, they get angry, they feel joy, pain, loss, and grief. This one has taken on some things emotionally. There is a worry in this animal, and there is a need for relief and to offer assurance that there is no need to take on anything from anyone else or to worry. That assurance can be of assistance. Herbs are helpful in dissolving such tumors and will not be harmful. Perhaps you have a natural pet veterinarian in your area or could access information or assistance through the internet or the library.
I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT FOOD ALLERGIES. MY BODY HAS VERY LITTLE TOLERANCE FOR WHEAT, DAIRY, AND SUGAR. I AM WONDERING WHY THIS IS SO AND WHETHER IT HAS BEEN A LIFELONG INTOLERANCE. IT ALSO SEEMS THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE EATING FOODS WHICH THEIR BODIES DON'T TOLERATE, BUT BECAUSE THE EFFECTS ARE NOT OBVIOUS TO THEM THEIR DIET REMAINS THE SAME. I ALSO GET HEADACHES. ARE THEY FOOD RELATED OR IS THERE AN ASPECT OF CONSCIOUSNESS THAT COMES UP WHEN I EAT CERTAIN FOODS?
You have grown progressively more sensitive. We would say there was some early on, but not so much that you noticed it in the same degrees. Sugar, dairy, and wheat, a great threesome, yes? They all carry certain frequencies that are related to the aspects of consciousness that are now releasing out of your consciousness. They are also woven into the collective, particularly in the United States where the consumption of sugar, dairy, and wheat is considered the main diet for many along with red meat.
These frequencies that are related or have become intimately connected to the same frequencies of consciousness that are now releasing make people such as yourself who are choosing to raise frequency less able to integrate such foods. It is rather a assimilation/integration problem. You cannot weave it into consciousness easily. It takes too much energy and it actually is not in resonance any longer.
Yes, many people eat foods that are not in resonance with them. If they choose to remain in this pattern of unconscious eating it is difficult to break out of those collective patterns of consciousness which keep most of the population asleep. If people to choose to go on a fast, for example, and they open to those frequencies that are there and not accessible because of the density that is kept in their body and in their consciousness through the foods and the patterns of thought that they entertain, then they open to a whole other way of experiencing themselves and they begin to choose differently.
You headaches have several causes. One can be food that is a trigger, but more often than not it is a thought that you are not able to completely bring to consciousness. Usually if you sit with it and listen, there is a thought or thought form that is surfacing that would be good for you to look at, deal with, and usually say ‘be gone’, or ‘I do not give you power to be in my presence’. So in a sense the pain in your head is rather like a point of a thought form that is pressing against your consciousness so that you can choose whether or not you truly wish to entertain or be with that thought, thought form, or belief.
I HAVE BEEN A CATALYST IN MANY SITUATIONS. THE RESULT HAS OFTEN BEEN PAINFUL BUT ALWAYS ENLIGHTENING. I SEEM TO HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF POWERFUL ENERGY WHICH I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FOCUS. CAN YOU GIVE ME GUIDANCE IN WHAT I MUST DO TO BALANCE THE PROPER USE OF MY OWN CATALYTIC ENERGY FOR THE HEALING AND HIGHER GOOD OF ALL MY RELATIONS?
It is important for you to be very connected to the earth. The catalytic energy can easily turn into fire, in a sense, and appear to be burning or even feel out of control at times. It is important to ground, to have deep roots, and to know that the catalyzing effect of your energetic field is often to burn or trigger release, trigger what has been static or crystallized and needs a little push or heat to move it, and that is your job. Your job is not to take on responsibility for how others deal with the catalyst.
A catalyst is rather like a stone is thrown into a pond and then there are ripples on the surface. The stone is laying at the bottom of the pond no longer concerned with the ripples, but concerned with what it is like to be where it is. So in a sense you create the ripples but are not responsible for the ripples that are created.
Ground your energies. Do it every day. Connect to the earth consciously with your whole body and soul. Ask for guidance from her in these times, for she is the one who is assisting the greatest movement of change and transformation that this planet has seen for a great long time, and she is the one who is giving the truest and most immediate guidance in this time, so listen to her and proceed. You are a great stone in the rippling effects of change in this time.
WHAT DID JESUS MEAN WHEN HE SAID TO TURN THE OTHER CHEEK? IT SEEMS PRETTY NATURAL AND INSTINCTIVE TO HIT BACK WHEN HIT WHETHER PHYSICALLY OR OTHERWISE. WHERE IS THE LINE DRAWN BETWEEN EXPRESSING THIS INSTINCT AND BEING "GOOD" AND TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK AND WALKING AWAY?
You are looking at it from one level. He was speaking from another, so it is not to be interpreted quite so literally. He was speaking of a principle of being sovereign when you are with one who is angry or emoting or having all sorts of unconscious acting out who then acts out towards you. For you to act out towards them moves you out of your sovereign nature and then you are reduced to that level of frequency or density that they have in their field.
One who is sovereign and knows who they are and knows the truth in every moment does not allow one who is acting emotionally, unconsciously, or out of falsities, fear, or anger to knock them out of their center. They remain sovereign. They look at the person, they may feel compassion for that person and what they are experiencing that is so out of balance, but there is no need to move beyond that and to react. You either walk away or you attempt to instruct or heal.
I HAVE READ FROM TWO DIFFERENT CHANNELED SOURCES THAT JESUS WAS NOT REALLY CRUCIFIED. IS THIS TRUE?
He was crucified. It is amazing, in many ways, how many interpretations of an historical fact can be brought forth and believed and made to be truth by some. Channeled sources can say anything. The essence of what they say needs to be felt in different ways and at different levels and discerned. Pay attention to how the information makes you feel and whether there is a sense of truth and compatibility with your own inner sense. If it causes confusion then if might be worth listening to another level within your own self that is always aware of what it is that you need to know.
Belief is a dangerous thing, we have said this before. Belief creates separation. If ones desire to create further separation by promulgating more beliefs in order to counter other beliefs, then they are increasing duality rather than unifying within consciousness around the principles of love and knowing of what is essential. That is where consciousness is moving.
The person of Jesus in the body was crucified for a great purpose in order to bring the awareness of the Hu/Man, the God/Man, both through death to an awareness that there is no death, and that life is ever-lasting or eternal. Eternal life is where you are headed in awareness, in consciousness, and embodied. How could the great teacher master that he was (and is) illustrate this if he did not go through the initiation of death and illustrate it in such a way, with witnesses who could account for what his purpose in coming was?
LAST FALL I BEGAN EXPERIENCING THE PHENOMENON OF SEEING 11:11 ON DIGITAL CLOCKS ALMOST EVERY DAY. iT WENT ON FOR APPROXIMATELY 3 MONTHS AND HAS GRADUALLY SUBSIDED. COULD YOU GIVE ME SOME INSIGHT ON THE MEANING OF THIS?
11:11 is a sort of trigger in consciousness, a symbol or a code that is a sign of a portal being present. A portal is an opening from one level of consciousness to another, and during certain periods of time there is greater support on an individual level to open to these new levels of consciousness as well as there are also collective conscious portals. It is often a sign that your soul is in alignment with a certain movement of consciousness during a certain time.
You may find that during these times you also have simultaneous experiences where you felt connectedness with others in a different way or have synchronistic happenings of other kinds. Perhaps you are even called to be more compassionate toward yourself or others. Remember the whole of the time and not just the symbol, and realize that it is the sign of a portal of consciousness.
I AM AN ARTIST AND HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN DOING PSYCHIC ART OR WHAT I HAVE COME TO CALL "ACTIVATIONAL" ART. I HAVE HAD EVERY INTENTION OF BUILDING A WEB PAGE AND SELLING MY ART OVER THE INTERNET. I STARTED IT WITH GREAT ENTHUSIASM, BUT FOR SOME REASON I CAN'T GET IT TOGETHER. I FEEL VERY FRUSTRATED. WHY AM I PROCRASTINATING ON THIS? AS I TYPE THIS I AM GETTING A FEELING THAT I AM AFRAID OF SOMETHING. WHAT AM I AFRAID OF?
The movement of your work, especially visual, spiritual art, into a public arena is triggering a past-life memory of when you had been visible and giving image to Spirit. First in a rather traditional way, but then Spirit illuminated you from within and you broke away from traditional art of the time and began to open to pure inspiration and into another whole arena of expression. Those who were in authority could did not allow what you were expressing to be called spiritual art, and they tried to suppress you. There was also much that was wounding to you during that time, and so there is a conflict. As you come forward there is a fear of retribution, punishment, and humiliation as well as a sense of contraction that resulted in a loss of your spiritual inspiration.
This is a different time and you are in a different experience of the earth. She is now opening you to assist her in this transformational time. You have opened again the inspirational portals of illumination, and it is for you to go forward. Reach back in time, embrace the one who had so much pain, and let that one come forward into this time. In that time you were ahead of your time and it was not able to be as you wished it to be or as it could have been.
