Update September 7, 2004
September 7 , 2004
Welcome to the planet of intensity,
Things are sure amping up in this election year, with angry ranting and name-calling moving into a new level of expression. We are witnessing the breakdown of duality structures and what happens when thousands of years of emotional repression comes rapidly uncapped. We have talked over the years about how this transformation period would be very challenging for the collective, and it appears that the larger population has started their restoration process in earnest.
As for us, we find ourselves just doing what is next with little energy moving us out into the world at this time. The course we were facilitating concluded in June, and since that time our focus has been on home and various projects that have presented themselves. Michele continues her client work, but is taking more time for play these days. I am continuing to produce recorded works and do some web design for others, and have been enjoying a new interest in writing.
I watch with amazement what is happening in our country and around the globe. I have some understanding of what is taking place in the collective transformation of consciousness, but the human part of me sometimes grows impatient with the whole thing and wants to feel more engaged in the process of bringing something new into the world. At the same time I know that everything has a sequence and a timing, and I do my best to relax into whatever is present for me in the moment. Every so often, I like to have a discussion with our friends in Spirit. Maybe they reflect something I already know, or maybe they share some new insights, but I find that I always feel better after talking with them and receiving the support that is offered.
The rest of this update is an excerpt from a recent visit I had with a group of these loving Spirit beings who are assisting us all through these times. I hope that you, too, will find their words supportive. Words in caps are mine.
We are present, we are here. Hello.
HELLO. IT'S NICE TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN. IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE WE LAST HAD A CONVERSATION. I WOULD LIKE TO POST AN UPDATE ON OUR WEB SITE, AND WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU FOR YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN THE WORLD.
So, what is happening? There are ways that what has been buried in the deeper unconscious of the collective is working through now into visibility. There is an intensity of emotions being displayed on both sides of the political spectrum at this time, and that intensity of emotions is coming out of the deeper unconscious. If you listen carefully, the emotions coming out of both sides is similar. It is just coming from a different side of the pole. So, there is fear, there is hatred, there is deep mistrust, there is righteousness on both sides. The field of emotion is quite heightened. In other countries, the political atmospheres are similar. There are more and more extremes, and there are people acting in ways that are horrific as they play out the destructive aspects of what has been repressed; their own unhealed wounds, do you see?
Some of you are more conscious, and have broken through to another experience. If you allow yourself into any of this, you will feel as if you are jumping into a hurricane of sorts. And, of course, there have been hurricanes, and that is not finished. That is continuing to be fed by this extreme emotion that is surfacing from the unconscious. You and the emotions of the earth are connected. You do create the atmospheres, you see. So, there is a sense here of great disruptions as emotions play out throughout the world. Not just your country (USA), but the world. This time is one of needing to stay very clear, very planted, in your core, referencing your own feelings from your own center and from Life, itself. Life is not disturbed. The new creation, the new matrix is not even being touched by what is expressing out of the old unconscious.
The old energies need to get out, but it's doing so without consciousness. Right now, any reflection you could offer into that larger picture might reach a few people, and they might find that there is a way for them to step out of it, but it is not a time when most are able to take in what you would offer. Many are so engaged in the emotional unconscious being broadcast through their ideals, their beliefs, and their attachment to a particular polarization, doctrine, or stance, etc., that they have no idea that they are just tapping into their own larger unconscious, and behaving without consciousness. So, there is very little consciousness illustrating in the world right now. Don't look for it there, and do not be angry that it is not there. An analogy might be if someone has a sudden loss of a wife, husband, or child. There is pure emotion, anger, and agony in response to the sudden loss, and the emotion is triggered from places within the unconscious that they have no control over. If they try to control it and put it away, they get very depressed.
In this country (USA), how many millions of people have been on anti-depressants for years? Well, the anti-depressants aren't working, let's put it that way. There is now a great release out of what has been repressed, but without consciousness it acts out in ways that are not rational, and not understood. These ways are very hurtful because there is projection on the other pole as the evil one, the bad one, or whatever it is that is considered unworthy to exist, or untrusted, or whatever. So, do not engage.
It is now for your awareness to apply itself to Creation, itself. What is it that is yours to give life to? Perhaps it is not time for a large movement of consciousness into the larger arena. The emotion playing out is too great. Stay firm in your arena of creation. Where is it that you can create your passion, your love, your sense of what is yours to do. The arena might be relatively, in a sense, close to home. Maybe you are helping a family, a group, or two groups. Maybe you are writing, or maybe you are gestating the new creation in your own awareness and nothing much is happening on the surface. Find that place in you, pay attention to it, honor it, give it your love and nurturance, and nourishing, and work with that. And don't look out as if you are trying to impact the world right now.
The world has lots of impact, and it isn't of consciousness at this moment. Let it spin. Let it do its thing over the next few months, and let the atmosphere of hurricanes, storms, and other kinds of manifestations also do their thing around the world in the next few months so that there is a cleansing of the unconscious collective. It's a great cleansing, a great discharge, what you might call a great dump of the collective unconscious. Spewing would be a good word. It is spewing from all directions, yes? So, let it, and stay engaged where you have the most impact for yourself within Life and Creation.
After a great release there is usually some exhaustion, some sense of needing to go back in to retreat, to heal. That is when you will find yourselves moving out, being called into places where the healing is needed, where you can begin to stand and be present with love. Then you can begin to speak and people will have more of a sense of openness to receive, because much has been released and space has been opened. So, rather than looking at this time as one of great horror, let it be the release that it is. This is what is happening, and do not judge it as something bad.
WITHOUT CONSCIOUSNESS, THERE NEEDS TO BE A MECHANISM FOR RELEASING ALL OF THIS, AND THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE SPEAKING OF.
Yes, and people are not open to other views in the middle of it. The only thing you can do with someone who is in uncontrollable release is be present with as much support as you can, but keep them from hurting themselves, do you see? Keep food on the plate, do whatever is needed, but not try to talk them out of their emotions, or try to give them awareness at that moment, it does not get in.
If you wish, you can support this process of release by taking time in your meditations as if you are supporting a person going through an uncontrollable, emotional release. Just stand in your presence, and allow love and light to come through you to support the unconscious collective release. If you are in groups, just allow yourself to be in that place of allowing love and light to come through you to be supportive of this great release from the unconscious. You do not need to pour any agenda of awareness, or insight, or anything into it. Right now they cannot receive those things. Even on an unconscious plane it is blocked.
A WHOLE MOVEMENT HAS COME UP WITH MUSICIANS WHO HAVE JOINED TOGETHER IN A SERIES OF CONCERTS. IS THIS ALSO COMING FROM A PLACE OF POLARIZATION?
No, not exactly. There are those who can move with emotion. Musicians and actors are some of those who can not only tap into the emotional release that is happening, but can add something that can be sustaining or assisting into the emotional mix. Awareness can not get through, but emotion can respond to emotion. So, that is one way that something can be added into the mix that may be more uplifting, energizing, or positive. When there is great discharge, it is also traumatizing. The collective is in a traumatized state, and it will get worse for a time before it gets better. So, for musicians to add the emotion of love, or the emotion of something that can be uplifting, that can be helpful.
Much is heaving up, so to speak, out of the unconscious. For you ones of greater awareness, you may feel tugged emotionally in different directions to support with love this great upheaval, and it is a time to choose other emotions for yourself. Music can be sustaining, emotionally, through this time. Choose music that sustains you, reaches the emotions, and gives you a sense of connection to another frequency or emotional palette, so to speak.
THIS IS HELPFUL TO ME, BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I AM APPRECIATING WHATEVER CAN ASSIST ME TO SUSTAIN MYSELF AMIDST ALL THIS MADNESS.
That is why you keep your arenas relatively small right now, rather than trying to make changes out in the world. Do what you feel called to do in your currents of life. You are writing (speaking to Chris), and you are supporting others to make their voices more visible or ready to move out into the world when it is time. You are getting ready for that time when those things will be needed, when the CD's of processes for healing will be needed, when the writings with awareness and perspective can be heard and received. It can't go out yet, but they need to be readied, they need to be made, they need to be produced. So, that is now. You can put your focus into these places now, and know that life is supporting you. You may not feel what others feel in terms of the madness. That is fine, that is your choice having gone ahead in this process and having done your mad releases earlier in the privacy of healing rooms rather than altogether in one large political rally, do you see ( laughter)?
I UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE MOVING INTO A TIME THAT WE BEGIN TO LIVE AND IMPACT CREATION FROM A REAL PLACE OF PASSION. TO BE HONEST, I HAVE SOME TROUBLE WITH THE PASSION PART….OPENING IT UP.
That has been part of your conditioning, and not just this life. Many people are afraid of passion. It has been so distorted in the collective consciousness and how it has been manifested in the old structures of consciousness.....so repressed and so distorted that many have a great fear of it. So, there is a release of fear, a release of judgment, a release of repression. Not just personally, but collectively.
The first phase of shifting into this great new matrix of Living Light, has been to land it, to open the life force, to release the fears that kept people from receiving and connecting their own souls to Life. The next phase is to release the repression of passion, the repression of emotion, the repression of how Life feels her way into Creation. It is the passion of an artist who may be so engaged in moving an inner vision out into manifest form that they might be perceived as crazy by many people around them…because the passion is so driving them. That is not what it is going to be like, but when that opens up and it engages Light, or Living Awareness, there is something that wishes to then form itself, and it will engage that passionate nature which is part of the human design. It is a gift, a great gift. It is one that has not yet been fully integrated into the whole of who you are to be here, but it is coming, it is on the list.
AND IF YOU MIGHT OFFER A PEEK INTO WHAT PHASE COMES NEXT?
Well, another phase will be when the conscious and the unconscious on the collective level begin to come together, in a sense, and people will see more clearly, consciously, what has been manifesting from an unconscious plane. Awareness will begin to ripple out through consciousness, and that will begin to expose many pockets of power and manipulation that you may now see, but most do not. So, that will get revealed in the next phase. Then, there will be the reactions of anger and betrayal, and all the other things that go with that. At that time there will be more and more of a need to help people see what is unfolding within the context of a bigger picture. Assistance will be needed to help people realize that they have choices in this process, and they do not just have to be in reaction to whatever is the latest outpicturing. But that isn't yet. Right now you have a great big emotional release, and it is not yet to its peak but is still amplifying.
IT IS ENCOURAGING FOR ME JUST TO HEAR THAT MORE PEOPLE WILL BEGIN TO SEE THE DISTORTIONS AND MANIPULATIONS. MY HUMAN SELF GETS IMPATIENT DURING THESE TIMES OF WAITING.
That is understandable. If we were in your shoes, we might be impatient, too. But, we have a different perspective because we are not inside of it, and can observe a little bit more than perhaps you can. We see that this time of increased escalation of emotional release is tied to dogma, doctrine, beliefs, blaming and projection, and all those things that unconscious releases have been tied to for centuries. But now, it is more polarized and even more vehement, and in some ways becoming less and less tied to anything of fact. It is, in a sense, spinning off on its own. And so that is even more a sign of unconscious release of the collective unconscious, do you see, that it has no basis in anything, truly. It is just emotion spinning itself throughout consciousness.
AND THAT'S A GREAT METAPHOR FOR THE HURRICANES YOU SPOKE OF EARLIER, AND THAT MORE SPINNING OUT WILL BE MANIFESTING IN THE WINDS.
Yes, well, it is highly charged. Emotion is highly charged, the atmosphere is highly charged, and it is going to produce and be attracted to those places where there is lots of charge.
THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR SHARING YOUR PERSPECTIVES.
You are welcome. We, too, enjoy this process very much.
That is all.
