Twice each month I have the most incredible opportunity to connect deeply, spiritually, and heart-to-heart with a small group of conscious evolutionaries that I met through my training with Barbara Marx Hubbard. Last week we each contributed around the felt vision of an evolved humanity, a “global supra-human organism in which no one is left out, everyone has a role to play, and everyone’s interests are aligned with each other’s interests and with the planet.” This is not just an idealistic utopian fantasy, but is the potential culmination of billions of years of evolutionary progression. It is the “structure” for which our planet, which is in chaos, is looking for as a coherent structural order that draws humanity towards a higher order. Evolutionaries see this structure as a benevolent “strange attractor” that lifts the chaos into its new order.
“an organism is a structure in which the interests of every member of the group are completely aligned with the group’s interests. There are no debates about minimum wage between the spleen and the quadriceps; no lobbying for a thousand times the “minimum wage” by the brain, while other organs or cells in the body are dying of starvation. All organs are fully supportive of each other and every cell has a role to play. The lungs don’t try to convince the kidneys that they should be more “lung-like.”
The very next morning in meditation I immediately began receiving a very specific message:
Suffer, Supplicate, Surrender
Yikes!! What is this that is bombarding me?
Push back NOW, resist, resist!
Even as I felt my body tightening up and resisting this message, I focused on breathing and opening up to at least “hear” what was streaming to me, mostly at a rate much faster than I was able to take in.
The word, “supplicate” held the strongest energy for me, one that was definitely NOT comfortable. This word meant groveling, looking outside of myself for answers, and begging for mercy, none of which fits my idea of my relationship to the Divine. It was very hard for my “mind” not to get in the way of this download, to throw up barricades and shut down the flow.
Breath, center, ground, know that you are Divine and protected, listen. I heard:
“We move forward as a cooperative organism [whether that be our own body, relationships, or humanity] by releasing our need and desire for recognition, approval, individuality and uniqueness. We all have a talent to be of service and if each is in their service, all are recognized as an important part of the whole. To live from this cooperative state is to end suffering as no one would need for something that would not automatically be a part of the cooperative whole. We must supplicate ourselves to release our separated states and surrender individuality for the benefit of the whole.”
Resistance big time!
Really? I can’t be seen as unique? My beliefs have been to see each of us as a facet of the whole diamond, shining our unique perspective of the whole. What if this belief is a way for my separated self (my Ego that so wants to glory in its individuality) to stay in control?
It was at this time I was shown several areas of my physical body that aren’t 100%.
“Just like your right leg is resisting it’s service to the whole and wants separate attention, even with the expense of pain and suffering. Suffering is preferable as a unique understanding of the separated self to the seemingly conglomerate [anonymity] of the whole.”
But, supplicate? I must beg to be released?
Once again I was shown an experience in my life to create understanding.
“You’ve experienced the ecstasy of a supplicated state before.” And then I was flooded with the memory of an experience I had sitting in meditation on a mountain in New Mexico. During that meditation I opened my eyes to see a hummingbird hovering right in front of my face and then I was suffused with the energy of LOVE, not as an emotion, but as a BEING state. It was ONE consciousness, it was God, it was ALL THAT IS, it was bigger than I could actually hold. It was beautiful. And, even though I can remember this experience, I’ve never quite been able to enter that energy state again. But, now I know that “supplication” is an entering into the “glory, power and presence” of LOVE, and not a subjugated state.
I’m not exactly sure what to make of this meditation, but it has definitely stuck with me. I am on the verge of a transition in my life to a new home, located 100 miles from where I currently live. This future move certainly has me asking questions about what I will “do” when I get there. What is my service to the whole? What does “surrendering my separated self” really look like? Is it possible to form a cooperative structure in my own microcosm of humanity? What would that even look like?
How are you playing with the ideas of surrender and supplication?
Ever feel too small and insignificant to make a difference?
As a conscious evolutionary, I believe that our souls make a conscious choice to be in physical form at particular times in history in order to serve our humanity in some particular way. Actually, you’re the only one that can do what you do in the particular way that you do it.
Maybe it’s fear that stops us.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. - Marianne Williams
I think it’s the fear of being overworked, overwhelmed, and over committed that holds us back. Being “powerful beyond measure” sounds like we might be asked to take on a lot of work, shoulder a load of responsibility, and tackle insurmountable obstacles. In a world where most of us already feel overworked and overwhelmed, it’s not surprising that we would prefer to shrink from our power, rather than to step into it. I asked a client this week what might she do with some unexpected free time. Her response surprised me at first, but I certainly could identify with it. She just wanted to veg out watching an old TV series she’s rented from Netflix that she really enjoys. I understand the enticement to get lost to entertainment, to appreciate someone else’s work, and to shirk off any sense of responsibility.
What if being “powerful beyond measure” actually meant stripping down your life to taking small, meaningful actions rather than the larger than life ones we imagine? I think the question is more about what you are willing to let go of in your life in order to be powerful, rather than what you are willing to take on.
There’s fear here too!
If I’m not “doing” a lot of stuff the same questions as before show up, “Who am I (if I’m not this identity)? What difference can I make (if I’m not doing all this work)?”
Our culture looks favorably on the highly productive, driven person who is seen as a successful contributor to society. However, one of the first skills my coaching clients practice is how to say “no” to everything extraneous in their lives. We begin by stripping their lives down to only those things that reflect their top 3-5 values. The less distracted you are by the superfluous, the more aware of your unique powerful beingness you can become. It’s only then that you get clear, small actions in alignment with who you really are, create meaningful differences.
“Powerful beyond measure” loses the connotation of excess work when you look through evolutionary eyes. It is who you are really here to be, stripped of masks and identities that no longer serve you, divested of “should’s and ought’s,” and immersed in the creative field of a spiritual being. You do the thing you are here to do because it calls you, in a step-by-step way, that you are now able to hear because your life is consciously designed to reflect you, as your Higher Self, no longer small nor insignificant.
Supporting our planet provides a wonderful opportunity for taking small actions that create meaningful differences. You can find practices that you resonate with in the Spring of Sustainability Telesummit, nine weeks of short, action-driven interviews, April 28 – June 27. Registration is free.

I’ve only ice-skated a handful of times in my life, and yet there is a sensation inside of me that I associate with skating AND with feeling connected. In December of 2011 a figure skater appeared for me as a metaphor for my desire to flow through a lot of work while maintaining “grace, ease, effortlessness, and balance.” (This blog post also offers a cool tool for shifting perspective in the form of a spinning dancer; see more here.)
This year, it seems that a long track skater holds the morphic energy field for me of singularity, the union of myself with All That Is.
I’m lucky enough to meet regularly with a small group of conscious evolutionaries willing to connect heart-2-heart and share our deep and personal musings from Essence. One evening during the 2014 Winter Olympics we each shared our most resonant, most personal understanding of our relationship with Consciousness, Source, the Universe, All That Is.
My belief is that I AM Consciousness, and that you are also Consciousness; that each of us is a unique facet of One Universal Energy (Love). For me, Consciousness/Source is not something outside of me to look to, but is me perceiving and responding to life through my eyes, and your eyes, and everyone’s eyes. What surprised me is that I as I shared my beliefs I could feel this long track speed skater skating around and around a track. It struck me at the time as sort of a lonely feeling, just the one skater, dim lights, no crowds.
When I laid down that night and closed my eyes, I could feel myself inside of this skater. No longer was I lonely, rather I was joyful, energized, exuberant and vibrant with life. I felt the whole universe within me, as the universe, skating around and around this track, complete, whole, One. I could feel the muscles in my body pushing the skates and then gliding, the effort and the effortlessness were the same energy, with different sensations, yet still the same, somehow. Every once in awhile I “slipped out” of this delicious sensation and found myself watching the skater and thinking, “how lonely,” only to then be swept back up into the skater and feel glorious!
Do you have a clear understanding of your personal relationship with the Divine?
Have you spent time sifting out cultural or familial conditioning to find your own belief?
What image or metaphor holds the energy state of being that anchors your belief?
Would love for you to share your thoughts below!
Donyvon, my hair stylist, raved about this movie, “I Am,” which I finally watched* over the Christmas holidays. WOW! It is a beautiful documentary of the scientific proof of our interconnectedness with everything and everyone on this planet. Much more important than the science however, at least to me, was this movie’s ability to open your heart to how YOU can contribute to the betterment of our planet. Your energy, your consciousness, your actions, make a difference, which is the very definition of being a conscious evolutionary.
The most fascinating demonstration of this in the film was an experiment of electrodes placed in some yogurt and attached to a meter that could read changes in the electromagnetic field in the yogurt. The director of the movie, Tom Shadyac (director of Ace Ventura, Bruce Almighty), was encouraged to think about people or situations that would elicit a strong emotional response. He was not hooked up to anything, yet, his emotions registered as significant changes in the electrical field of the yogurt. This was a powerful demonstration that we ripple energy and affect everything around us; everything reads our energy!
So, with that in mind I am making a request of you for this New Year’s Day, January 1, 2014. Around the world this day is traditionally focused on questions such as “how can I be a better person, have a better life, etc.,” creating a huge wave of collective desire (strong emotion!) for something new. Will you join me, along with the 1200+ friends of Ken Graydon, and use this wave of collective emotion to amplify a healing for ourselves, and therefore for our world?
The following blessing is from Ken Graydon, based on his work with the Organ Regeneration Process which recognizes that you are a hologram for all. Feel the energy embedded in this, change the words to fit your own spiritual understandings if you need to, and then read it aloud on Wednesday, January 1.
I am in spirit; I and the Creator are one.
My healing blesses all of creation.
My intention with this healing is to offer regeneration to this whole body to bring it to the mental, spiritual, emotional and physical standard that the Creator and I had planned for it to be at now.
I go to the high point of my soul where I may tap into the source of all healing, the place of healing peace, the fountain of joy and the river of abundance. I am wrapped in a cloak of power, which may only be used for good. My tongue is blessed that I may speak the words of power, but only when used with love.
I make every effort to expand my consciousness, understanding and spiritual awareness to be the best possible representative of the Creator’s teaching and healing intentions for people, animals, environment and the planet.
I believe in this healing. I accept and allow all the blessings into my life. I am filled with gratitude and peace.
And so it is.
May you experience a blessed, abundant, healthy and astonishingly connected love for our planet in 2014.
Ooooo-weeeee! It’s always interesting to set intentions and then see what shows up!
The intention I set this past summer was to explore a deeper experience of body consciousness that is natural, whole and infinite; a consciousness that is distinct from my Essence, yet entangled with it. My sense of this body consciousness that is emerging through me is different than anything I’ve read about or experienced before.
It is not about how emotions and limiting beliefs are stored in the body, though I am quite aware of this consciousness and have tools and techniques to explore this inner landscape. Nor is it about using consciousness to morph or shift my physical body, as I also have experiences, tools and processes to do this as well. It is a consciousness I have not yet fully grasped, but can sense a distinction for myself that is beyond the denseness of 3D physicality, yet is completely in the physical realm.
I just returned from a very physically focused vacation of hiking and mountain biking where I had a couple of experiences that seem to relate to my intention of getting a deeper sense of an innate body consciousness. The first was an experience that seemed to be stored in my very DNA at the lowest end of the vibration scale, while the second experience seemed to be total integration of my physicality with the environment at higher vibrations.
Luckily for us the state of Utah took up the expense of the national parks and opened Arches NP. One of the most recognizable images of this park is the “Delicate Arch” which takes a 1 ½ mile hike up, up, up to see. It is outstandingly beautiful. Much to my surprise, however, I experienced an anxiety attack stepping onto the slanted rock that surrounded the arch. Though called “slick rock,” the surface of this rock is like sand paper, not slick at all, but rather sticky. Kids were jumping and running all around me, yet my body began to shake uncontrollably. It was incredibly interesting for me to observe the “irrational” sense of a lack of safety, and I was fascinated to hear myself actually begin to whimper and cry, even as my husband supported my body and tried to walk me toward the arch. I tried to “feel” for the fear, but actually couldn’t find a field of energy, it felt “outside” of emotion. This experience was definitely in the “lizard” brain, my body reacting to it’s own “danger, danger” warning signal, something ingrained or conditioned. What occurred to me, even in that moment, is that I was experiencing the physical representation of the separated body consciousness, just like lower vibrating Ego states are the representation of the separated Essence.
On our last day in Moab, we mountain biked through beautiful red rock canyons along Onion Creek. We crossed the creek 20+ times on the way out, challenging my skills, but doable. After our lunch break we retraced our ride, this time with a downhill gradient, and the creek crossings took on a whole new feel. It felt like I had become one with this environment. The water splashing sounded like laughter. The sandy loam that had tugged me off the bike on the way out, seemed to pull me forward and through to firmer soil as we flew back to the car on our bikes. The blue sky, the red rock, the laughing stream, the sandy soil, the bike and my body were all co-creating simultaneously the physical expression of joy!
Yes, the emotion was there, but it was more than that. I was experiencing the physical sensation of an expanded body consciousness, in its whole and natural state of physicality integrating in oneness with other physicality just like when I feel myself as expanded Essence and a facet of All That Is. To me, these feel like distinct, yet entangled, states of consciousness. It was a “taste test” of what is possible, of what I think 5D physicality might feel like. I look forward to more of it!
Are You Playing with A New Sense of Your Body Consciousness?
- You can learn a lot of fun tools and processes that connect you to higher states of consciousness in the Consciousness Playground with Wendy Down. She is currently running a program for an online Quantum Body Sculpting program.
- How often do you consciously connect with your body in physical ways? Not just a workout, but rather a focused sensing of your physical self interacting with the physical world. I often play the game of “I am that also” and actually feel myself as the tree branches blowing in the wind, or the persistent steadiness of a large rock, or the muscles, tendons and joints of a working muscle. In what ways do you play in physicality? Please, comment below.
- What are your ideas about the physical aspects of being in a 5D world?
“Look, there’s nobody at the playground!” I heard a child shrill with excitement as he ran to be the first one on the slide this morning. I was sitting deep in meditation with a friend and heard this just as I was lost in the sensation of something new wanting to emerge within me. What a great metaphor for the WayShower, to feel the excitement and joy of being the “first” (or at least at the leading edge) to play with a new level of consciousness!
I don’t have words yet for what is brewing within me around a new level of consciousness that is coming into our physical bodies. My sense is that it has to do with a level of body consciousness that is outside (at least initially) of the mental realm, and that is somehow different than the body consciousness I’ve explored before. I am very familiar with observing changes in the body in order to learn more about my emotions and my conditioned responses. I play often with using intention to shift physical reality. I’ve also experienced feeling “myself” merge completely with physicality and become pure consciousness, which then shifts physical reality, including my body. Still, something different is brewing.
It began several weeks ago when in meditation at the same outdoor space as above I had the most phenomenal experience. The day was extremely windy and blustering gusts were buffeting my body. There were also two men with leaf blowers working around us, why on a windy day I can’t imagine, except that they were there to co-create with me :-). My body became a loosely knit gathering of molecules that rode out on the sound waves of the blowers, and blew in swirls with the winds. Then, every few minutes reconstituted itself into the collection that was my body before it took off again. I had the very distinct feeling of what it must be like to be a sand dune, blowing, moving and reforming again and again. It was a breathtaking experience on a number of levels, and clearly set the foundation for something new to emerge.
Additionally, I am in the midst of playing with a health condition (which is a nuisance, but not serious). During a “remote healing session” with Wendy Down and Ken Graydon, I received clarity around how the body can play its own illusory games, a place where the ego can still play outside of the mental/spiritual bodies. Several years ago I came face to face with the “preferred” illusory game of my soul ray (read more), and felt great sadness flow through me as my ego recognized “the game is up.” I experienced this same level of sadness and grief as my body consciousness let go of its game of separation.
I know these two experiences are related to an evolution of the body to a higher consciousness and I am excited to learn more about what it feels like and how this evolutionary step is something different than what has come before. I feel quite sure it’s related to our movement into the 5th Dimension. Stay tuned, I’ll fill you in when the words appear for this state of being that wants right now to stay physical, not mental or intellectualized just yet.
Are You A Wayshower?
Are You Answering (or resisting) the Call to Step Powerfully Into Your Purpose?
The Angle News Network defines Wayshowers as “light workers who choose to bring their talents and gifts into the world in a larger way. They use their leadership skills to help light workers contribute their skills to create a new world of community, harmony and equality.”
In our first couple of Circles about this subject, we looked at some common themes.
- The importance of building our skills at living as our Essence, accepting and acknowledging ourselves as fully embodied and conscious spiritual beings.
This becomes a daily spiritual practice to be willing to consciously engage with others as our Essence, and be willing to notice when conditioned responses take over. (See below for the opportunity to be a beta tester for an e-course to build this skill.)
- To expand our spiritual practice for the integration of our beingness with our evolutionary impulse (read more) and allow “sacred activism” to ensue.
Andrew Harvey Institute for Sacred Activism
“A spirituality that is only private and self-absorbed, one devoid of an authentic political and social consciousness, does little to halt the suicidal juggernaut of history. On the other hand, an activism that is not purified by profound spiritual and psychological self-awareness and rooted in divine truth, wisdom, and compassion will only perpetuate the problem it is trying to solve, however righteous its intentions. When, however, the deepest and most grounded spiritual vision is married to a practical and pragmatic drive to transform all existing political, economic, and social institutions, a holy force – the power of wisdom and love in action – is born. This force I define as Sacred Activism.” – Andrew Harvey
- Stepping powerfully forward as a Wayshower can feel isolating and lonely.
As you lean into your calling as a Wayshower, it is more important than ever to form community with other like-minded pioneers. You come to recognize that you are not a-l-o-n-e, but rather, a-l-l o-n-e. You need a place to share ideas, heart-storm your next steps, and shore each other’s courage for accepting the vulnerability of bearing one’s soul as a gift to the world. I deeply encourage you to find one or more places, face-to-face if possible, to interact with other Wayshowers.
If you are in Austin, please consider joining our MeetUp group that Circles on the third Wednesday of the month. We are having a special “5th week” Circle on May 29, 10:45, mezzanine of Whole Foods at 6th and Lamar.
Are You a Wayshower who hasn’t stepped out yet?
- Build your skill for living fully embodied as your Essence. Become a beta tester for my new e-course, How to Be a Conscious Evolutionary – The Spiritual Explorer’s Path by completing the form below. The course will be ready for testing in about 6 – 8 weeks. In exchange for your thoughtful insights about this product, you can receive it for FREE by completing the form below.
- Begin to journal about what it might look like for you to take on a leadership role in the area of your gifts. Who are you here to show the way to? Describe the ideal person you want to mentor, inspire or encourage. What leadership skills do you already have? Where do you need to improve? What occurs to you as your “next step?” You don’t have to have the “whole” plan, just an idea for what is next.
You know how they say we only use about 10% of our mental capacity? I think the same must hold true for our heart capacity as well. My heart is opening, opening, opening, with this new 5D energy flowing into our world and right now I am doing my best to allow myself to utilize more of what must be a HUGE innate capacity to live from a heart centered space.
Based on my work over the past 10 years with the Core Dynamics, I am completely comfortable with the capacity to “feel everything fully.” I also easily recognize when I am bumping up against some sort of limitation that, until I bump into its edge, I am completely clueless to. I know I’m on this edge when I feel flooded with emotions and tears flow. I believe tears always represent a release of resistance and usher in an opening within me.
Easter Sunday was just such a day of emotions, tears and openings for me. It began with a bike ride where I listened to a recording of Andrew Harvey talking about “Rediscovering the Christ Path.” It was my second time to listen to this and it continued to stir deep knowings. The particular section so present for me yesterday was the concept of the marriage of the Divine Feminine with the Divine Masculine within me to birth the Divine Child, the incarnation on this physical planet of myself as Spirit (read more).
It is this way of being, Spirit Incarnate, or “walking Christ’s Path,” that our new 5D energy is supporting. We can now fully experience the marriage of Heart and Head, of Mysticism and Sacred Activism, of Heaven and Earth, no longer in duality, but in communion.
Not a regular church-goer I attended Easter services with my mom at her church. My heart soared with the opening bell choir, then continued to fly wide open as the vocal choir’s harmony hit a crescendo. During the first hymn, one familiar to me from my youth, I felt myself as a 6 year old listening to my mother and believing that she sounded like an angel. I was flooded with love for this beautiful woman I am lucky enough to call my mother. My heart swelled, tears pricked my eyes, and I continued to breathe deeply reassuring myself that it is possible to be with such a wide open heart, that it’s possible to access a greater percentage of my capacity without being overwhelmed by its bigness.
The sermon was given from the perspective of Mary Magdalene, what it must have been like to watch the teacher/man that she loved be humiliated, tortured and nailed to a cross. During the description I could feel such deep grief and suffering, knowing from experience just how difficult it is to be with someone you love who is in pain. The Divine Feminine was very present in this emotion, eyes brimming, deep breathing, feeling fully.
And then came the last song. Again, one that I knew well from long ago Easter services that asks the question, “You ask me how I know He (I personally define Jesus as ‘Love’) lives?” and answers with, “He (Love) lives within my heart.” My heart expanding, opening, expanding, opening, and then I saw an older man singing. He didn’t look anything like my Dad, but there was something in his energy that so reminded me of my Dad, and then my Dad, who transitioned 8 years ago, was there. He was beside me wrapping his arms around my mom and I, and love was pouring over us. Okay, I lost it then. Everyone was walking out and I started sobbing with joy and love and hope and sadness too, letting go of any resistance to opening my Heart as fully as I can today to the Love that is building and expanding on our planet.
This is not about religion, this service just created a portal for me.
Are you expanding your ability to feel Love, Joy, Compassion, Hope, and Gratitude at levels that might have once overwhelmed you?
Are you opening your eyes to the doors that are opening this Spring for you to birth the Divine Child within you?
Are you allowing yourself to expand access to your heart’s huge capacity to embody Heaven on Earth?
I would love to hear your stories about how YOU are shifting into greater and greater access to your heart’s ginormous capacity.
I am so grateful that I have practiced communicating with, and opening to the guidance of my Higher Self on a regular, consistent basis.
I am so grateful that I can hear, see, smell, receive, feel, touch, surrender to, and interpret this ongoing communication that flows to me unceasingly from my Higher Self.
If January was about sitting back (read more), then February was about bounding forward! Things came together all of a sudden in February for my husband and I to take action on a home renovation project that has been on the vision board for years and years.
And, my Higher Self is here with me every step of the way.
“Whom should I give this to?” A feeling about a specific person or organization shows up, and I’ve noticed it is appreciatively accepted.
“Where is such and such?” I can see clearly the box where it’s been packed, or the location in my house or car where the lost object is hiding.
These seem sort of trivial things when I write them here, but what I know is that my life flows easier, decisions seem clearer, and stress and worry are almost non-existent as I lean into this treasured skill that perhaps I had come to take for granted.
What it means is that I am actually living in each present moment these days.
I stay in the present moment even as I purge and release my hold on the past, and even as we create plans for this project’s future. My foundation of trust in my Higher Self is being beautifully illuminated for me to see and appreciate. What I am recognizing here is an outward manifestation of the inward embodiment of my Essence, fully allowing myself as a Spiritual Being to be doing.
HA! This is what it looks like to “incarnate” as your Spirit. It looks like every day life on the outside. Yet there is this beautiful harmonic chord of peace, vibrancy, excitement, joy, happiness, curiosity, freedom, and more, on the inside. How sweet is that?
I am so grateful.
Ideas for Opening to the Guidance of Your Higher Self:
- Sign up for 8 Awesome Ways to Know If You’ve Opened Your Channel for examples of how you can recognize the communication that is already flowing to you from your Higher Self. (See side bar.)
- Sink your awareness into your heart space, close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Ask any question you want to of your Higher Self and wait expectantly for an answer to “bubble up” from deep inside. Build your foundation of trust by beginning with little, non-consequential questions such as “What is the optimal dish for me to order?” or “Which email is best for me to read first?” Play with the results by looking for the fun synchronicities that show up when you follow this guidance, even on little things.
- Are you interested in exploring the path of embodying your Essence? I am looking for beta testers for my e-course, The Spiritual Explorer’s Path, that will be ready for feedback in about 4 – 6 weeks. At the completion of this e-course you will feel your Spiritual (Higher) Self fully integrated into your physical, moment-to-moment existence.

Louise Hay (Heal Your Body) says colds can signify “Too much going on at once. Mental confusion, disorder.” That is how I felt after the end of our new beginning, Birth 2012, 12/22/12. Energies swirled in, through and around me over that period of days. But, I couldn’t tell you what they meant, what they were bringing or what was releasing; though it was clear to me something special indeed was happening. See a video below of some of my experiences.*
Hay goes on to say that coughs represent, “A desire to bark at the world, ‘See me! Listen to me!’” But, I couldn’t get anything out. In my first Conscious Evolution Circle on Jan. 2 every time I opened my mouth to speak, I was overcome with coughing spasms. I canceled my second circle on 1/16 because I still was not well.
What if January was meant to be quiet and introspective in order to integrate these new energies? That has certainly been my experience though I must admit to some envy as I read others’ blogs about their accelerated manifesting abilities since the Shift.
Maybe “quiet” is not the right word since it’s felt like a roller coaster of emotions going on inside of me trying to “hear” the messages and receive the communication that this new beginning has for me. I’ve traveled up and down from doubt to trust, from questioning my practices to being with what is, from feeling disconnected and out of sorts to expansive states of peace and bliss.
And yet, I can’t say with clarity just exactly what shifted with the Shift. I can, though, say with certainty that our world did shift. I can feel it when I’m in public spaces. The quality of rippling collective energy is just different, somehow softer, more receptive, less harsh, more cooperative, more caring.
There is something, and that something keeps me curious and looking for “what’s new and different?” This question is the real “accoutrement” of a Conscious Evolutionary, always looking for the emergent properties. When I find them, believe me, I will share them directly with YOU!
Possibilities for Integrating the Shift:
- Be inspired by Barbara Marx Hubbard as she talks about the path forward post-Birth in Dawning of a New You and a New World. Download this free conversation here: http://theacetraining.com/Dawn
- Become an “Agent of Conscious Evolution” to foster this new era and gain the skills for stepping boldly into the gifts you are here to give our world. Class begins January 29. http://theacetraining.com/ACE
- Get involved with a community of like-minded others who are playing with these energies. There are many different groups at meetup.com, including Austin Conscious Evolutionaries. We meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesday mornings at 10:45 – noon at The Tea Embassy.
*Want to see what I did around 12/22/12? Here’s a 2-min video of some of my experiences:
What’s your experience since the Shift?
What are your subtle senses picking up? Maybe you’re one of those who have noticed an acceleration of your ability to manifest. Maybe time feels different for you. Maybe you’ve also been on a roller coaster and didn’t want to mention it because so many others are having grand experiences. It’s all good. Do tell!
