WOW - fear is amazing and seemingly neverending. Each time I get ready to transition to a new level of being I experience fear. This time I have been experiencing it for a few days and I DON"T LIKE IT!!!! LOL!!
My mind has been using my computer and income woes as a distraction but I know that is not the source of my fear. I have even been trying to latch onto the fact that my best source of spiritual assistance from another human is gone. I know THAT is not the source of my fear either. Actually I have been so supported financially that several people have stepped up with money to help me out and I am still afraid and cannot calm down.
What I know is that this is a huge step for me - moving completely into trust and living all the way in the present moment. I am being asked to be the expanded being I have been flirting with for years without having any of the help I thought I needed to be able to do that - no consistant income at a level that actually works for me, no closeby friends or community, no partner and not even good health. And I am afraid. I had a beautiful breakthrough the fear last night where I became so clear about how I am trying to redirect the fear (to the income issues I mentioned before). I also felt it lessen to a tolerable level but I am still expierencing it.
I do know I will get through this and come out of it feeling fantastic, appreciating god and life even more than I ever thought possible. But for now I am noticing and appreciating that I am afraid AND I am still allowing the expansion and opening to continue.
By the way please don't write me to tell me not to be or feel afraid - that is kind of silly (and irritating) and if I could I would, and when I can I will.
Balance is an interesting issue. Most people opening to their authentic selves do so over time as an aside to working, relating, perhaps raising kids, or perhaps going to school. I function the opposite way. My primary focus is on spiritual awakening and the rest fits in between or with that. We talk about balancing the spiritual with the mundane every day world but is creating and maintaining balance really the question? Maybe while you are new to this awakening process or in the middle of a particularly painful process balance can be something you have to create. However, as time goes on and your resistance fades there is nothing to balance because there is no separation between your authentic self/spiritual awakening and your every day life. We sometimes forget it is all connected energetically. As you allow your awakening to deepen and progress you notice more and more how your every day life is also infused with the same energy you experience within yourself. For instance, I finished a re-birthing last week and re-discovered an incredible quiet and peace inside. Every day after that when I went anywhere I noticed how quiet everything outside of me seemed. Now I live in a very crowded area of northern San Diego County. I have always been sensitive to how noisy it seems to me after moving here from a much quieter, less populated, area. But what do you know? As soon as I quieted down inside, it seems like outside is much quieter too. I know the weather didn’t change, the shoppers and drivers didn’t change, nor did my neighbors change. I changed. And that has made all the difference (to lift a quote from one of my favorite poems). Purposely seeking balance occurs when we are unhappy with what is and are not letting any changes flow from within. You can impose your will and try to make a balance but there will always be some aspect of controlling going on and that tends to drain your energy after time. If you are like me, you then rebel and/or get all upset about it. If you allow the balance to come as a result of your inner shifts in energy/attitude it will seem more natural and acceptable in the long run. You will also be able to experience more flexibility in your every day life.
When you move deeper into loving yourself all the deeply embedded beliefs that detract from that self-love are exposed for healing. That is pretty much how this ascension path has been for me. What is funny is that I am still surprised when I find out just how a belief can control and permeate everything I do, even when I am not aware of it.
I am noticing that when someone complains about the results of something I do or is angry at me I still react first with protective defensiveness then anger, even if I logically know I have done the best I can and 98% of the time their reaction has nothing to do with my actions at all. This comes from lifetimes of trying to please others so I won’t be hurt and playing so small (to fit in, to get a tiny portion of acceptance and love, etc) that I forget how powerful I truly am. I also persist in believing that if I do a good enough job, I will be liked and everything will be ok.
I recently cleaned a house, after which someone complained that the floor was not clean. The person was angry at being held accountable for breaking something and needed to lash out. Additionally, I was specifically focused on (i.e. worried) about the floor when I cleaned it so I moved all the furniture and spent a great deal of time on it. I absolutely know there was nothing else I could have done better. Yet I still reacted with that sick feeling in my gut then got angry and tried to defend myself. I didn’t react as strongly as I usually do, showing how much I have grown, but I did react enough that I could not get to sleep until very early in the morning.
What I know now is that my worry manifested beautifully and it reminds me to pay attention to my thoughts and emotions when I clean, or do anything. I am also aware that, once again, my higher/inner self will use any situation to promote my growth (because of my passionate commitment to embracing my true/authentic self in this life) and I am getting to revisit on a deeper level this behavior and energetic pattern that no longer serves me. I am loving myself and beginning to believe that love will manifest in beautiful support in the form of friends and community (possibly even a partner), ease in my life, and effortless abundance.
Right now I am being inspired to continue with some heavy duty internal shifting and integrating it into my every day life. I am also still in the beginning stages of learning what true abundance is – the ability to do what I am intuitively inspired to do only when I am inspired to do it and trust that it will happen because I am intuitively inspired to do it (regardless of any perceived obstacles, like no money!!).
Other than that - I am lost. I read my favorite channelers’ information and I don’t find myself – except for any references to digging deep to re-align or heal even the smallest thing that needs to be changed. I don’t feel called to begin a center somewhere, I have not found my community in my city (I have connected to some online), I certainly am not one of those people who is going to be making a soul match to bring in another little soul on to the earth, I am no longer called to work with the earth grids (or very infrequently), and I am not being intuitively inspired to create new ways of learning methods of energy healing or to write any books or manuals. I am not earning enough income doing what I love, which is helping others in their ascension process. I don’t even want to make art, which, if you knew me, would be a very clear sign of some big shift. I do see some very small outer changes with my income but only because I am willing to do so many jobs that mean nothing to me, some of which actually cause a lot of pain in my body.
Lots of nots.
Am I complaining? Well, yeah, but I am also grappling with the disparity between my incredibly intense and fun spiritual/energy life and what the heck is going on or will happen in my every day human life. I have no idea right now.
Right now. That is the focus for me these days. Right now I am continuing some profound healing and shifting. Right now I am very aware that I need a lot of rest and I am doing my best to allow it. Right now I am embracing even the parts of me that yesterday I couldn’t stand. Right now I am opening my lower chakras even more and integrating all of them beautifully. Right now I have changed the way I manage one job so that it is easier for me (the one that hurts my body). Right now I am loving my body a lot and accepting that, for right now, I have some health issues that must be managed. Just for right now I am trusting that I am more accepting and more loving and therefore my life can only reflect that (even if I want it to reflect it RIGHT NOW).
And that is all I can do and all I am being inspired to do (except write about it).
Yesterday my upper mid back began hurting, again. This has been happening off and on for longer than I can remember. My chiropractor has been working on this particular vertebra for months and it hasn’t budged. He says it is the one that governs the nerves to the pancreas – important to me because I have diabetes and want to do everything I can to manage it properly. However, I am absolutely certain his work created the opening for the healing I experienced with it.
I have previously done a lot of healing in this area with some pretty good results but it flared up again in the past month. As I tuned in psychically I could see and feel a sharp hook with a cord to someone else. I believe it was tied to some issues with my dad but that wasn’t really important. Talking to someone yesterday triggered me again to try to let go of this and the pain began. I relaxed and asked for help from God and my higher self, and saw angels come to work on it. I also sought assistance from my monk friend who is not normally a healing facilitator but she helps me a lot anyway.
This particular hook played a great part in helping me hold on to limitations so that I would not embrace too much of my higher self. With this I could continue living pretending as if I am small, powerless, and a bit of a victim. However, I have been diligently and joyously expanding my awareness of self and it became too painful to hold on to the hook.
The angels worked on clearing the energy around it, then helped remove the hook and dissolved the cord. Then they helped remove the toxins so that I could heal completely as if the hook was never there. I experienced a lot of discomfort throughout the day and the entire night – still a bit sore – because it was embedded so deeply and I had just enough resistance to make it hard to release.
I no longer need to get any information on exactly what this all meant or when I allowed it to embed or what it will mean when it is gone. I trust and have faith healing will occur. In this case I intended that it heal and breathed a lot through the discomfort. The images that came to me are how my mind interpreted the energy shift. I also very clearly re-affirmed my declarations and commitments to knowing I AM one with everything and am much more than just the body, mind, sense complex.
This is what it psychically looks like to me when I focus on healing pain in my body. There is ALWAYS an energy block or hook involved. Sometimes the underlying agreements, emotions or story (life experience that originally created the block) shows up too. However, the means for healing it also always shows up. Isn’t that cool?
It began with a Monarch butterfly accompanying me on a neighborhood walk a few days ago. Then two ladybugs visited me in my bedroom the next night. The day after, I saw more Monarch butterflies in places I don’t usually see butterflies. Yesterday I visited a nursery to enjoy the plants and another butterfly joined me as I walked around (seriously, followed me and did aerial dances all around me wherever I went). At one point I accidentally walked into some plants and disturbed a bunch of black butterflies. I was delighted as they all flew up and then settled right down again even though I didn’t move away from the plants. I have never seen black butterflies before. Then earlier today a gorgeous iridescent dragonfly flew up to me as I was getting out of my car to go into the local library. I haven’t seen a dragonfly in over 30 years.
I generally get visions and serendipitous series of events as signs. I rarely get visits from bugs of any kind. So I paid attention. I am so appreciative of the loving, expansive feeling in my heart that came with each visit. I felt loving reassurance and comforting compassion from each little enchanting creature. They have helped me cope with the transition of my healer cat and to accept certain surprising perceptual and energy shifts as a result of my ongoing commitment to step out of duality living while still in this human body. I am grateful to be blessed so much.
I was recently frustrated with a friend who is having severe heart troubles (to the point of pain and palpitations just talking animatedly, and fainting a lot) and is still acting out a very detrimental behavior and emotional pattern of putting someone else first to the point of harming herself by working very hard on a project for a family member (to complete a gift, not an emergency). I couldn’t even talk to her one day because I couldn’t stand to be around the energy of it.
I caught up with myself and began exploring why I was having such a strong reaction. I realized I was/am very frustrated with myself for continuing an addictive behavior pattern that is equally self-destructive. So I sat down and re-identified with my expanded, eternal self (rather than the ego-addicted self) and imagined the jail of this addiction releasing from my mind, my emotions and my psyche (not very different than the mind for this purpose). I felt and saw the bindings of the ‘bars’ release and dissolve. I also allowed a lot of healing within my heart and other areas of my emotional energies. As I have already done so much healing and shifting for underlying causes of this addiction, I was not guided to do any work or allow any shifting on anything like that. I was purely addressing where I still held on to the addictive thinking patterns and resulting hurt and reactions.
I am able to be a compassionate witness for my friend now and am excitedly looking forward to the different choices I know I will be able to make in my every day life.

Well it is – for them.
Use your discernment to find your way – which may or may not be the same as any one else’s. You will know what is right for you by the way you feel. If you feel uplifted, inspired or expanded, or even challenged, then you know the information or choice is correct for you. If not, well, think about it again. The immediate results in your life may tell you nothing so you will need to at least pretend that your inner feelings/senses can guide you.
And do not pay any attention to me if this doesn’t work for you.
So if you are just acknowledging the possibility of your own energy creating your life you are in a very different place than individuals who have shifted so much that they live in trust and faith every single day without the need to consciously focus on exactly what they might want in life (not sure how many of those there are but there must be some out there somewhere). So your needs, your processes and your path will be different – not better or worse, just different. It is all good and all appropriate.
Oh and there is no hurry either – you won’t be ‘left behind’ if you think you are not moving fast enough. That is just a thought that you can let go of – if you wish
Just another reason to relax, have some fun, and allow.
Give the universe time to catch up with your changes. Give yourself time to settle in to this new, expanded version of you. Live in this for a while.
Moving into the higher vibration way of living means trusting on a very deep level that all is well, you are always taken care of, and everything is connected. Live like that now. Go have some fun. Let go of the worries and the need to make anything happen. The best way to do that, aside from lots of inner energy work, is to have fun, the sillier the better.
I love bubbles. I have no idea why, I just do. Once when I was visiting with a friend in Long Beach, CA I bought a bubble gun. It is a battery-operated gun with a laser light that you connect to bubble mixture (soap and water). When you pull the trigger many bubbles come out. When I am down or doubting, I pull out the gun and shoot bubbles. I do it from my balcony, I do it while I am out walking, and I do it on the beach. It makes me laugh and it makes other people light up too.
When I laugh over nothing like that, I am totally present and satisfied. That signals to my higher self and the universe that I am ready for the next great thing or change in my life. All the inner doors are open and I am receptive. Be silly.
Take a good look around you. Pay attention to how you feel and how things look. Then close your eyes and raise your vibration or connect stronger with your inner being/higher self/God (whatever works for you). You can imagine your vibration measured by a dial (or a digital reading for you youngsters) and then turn the dial up or increase the digital reading. Really feel the expansion, breathe into any constriction. Open your eyes. Notice how the colors themselves of your environment are brighter and how much more light there seems to be. Notice your heart seems to connect with the natural world much easier. I bet you even feel happier.
Sometimes it takes longer to raise your vibration because you have to detach from all the worry and fear but it is worth it to be a little happier in your life.
