Wisdom Awakening

I’ve had several experiences recently that reminded me of my spiritual evolution. As more and more people become spiritually aware, I find myself in conversations with them and all of sudden I’m the one who is imparting words of wisdom or nodding my head when they tell me about some ‘strange’ experience they’ve had. I wondered when that had happened – when had the roles reversed and I was no longer the new initiate (for lack of a better term)?  Of course I am still constantly seeking more information and guidance, but it is now at a higher level than it once was and I seem to be filling a new role.

How Far We Have Come

This new role, or rather the new me, is great!  I can tell that I have truly grown as a person. I no longer feel like I need to shield myself for protection or carry a ton of crystals around with me like I did when I first started down this path. Now I simply allow negative energy to flow past me. I don’t get as caught up in daily stresses. I try to see the good in people even when it looks to all the world like the person doesn’t have any. I think it is this openness that has brought even more wonderful things into my life.

Monarch by Colby Hall

As those of you who have followed my blog posts know, I am very interested in nature and gardening and the creatures of this world. You probably also know that I raise butterflies. This year, I have been blessed with many black swallowtail butterfly eggs, and for the first time since my childhood, a monarch butterfly stopped by to visit. I cannot tell you the joy I felt at seeing that little butterfly as she flitted around my flowers and milkweed plants. It seems like the Universe was saying “See! When you open yourself up to the world, the world will show up!” It’s a hard lesson to learn. Especially lately when it is easy to fall into patterns of negative thinking, wanting to hide from the world, or to lash out at it. But if you can remember who you are at your core and allow all of the rest to flow around you while you remain observant of it but not mired in the thick of it, then you can remain open to the very best that this world has to offer. I’ve done my best to share this lesson with those who have come to me recently asking questions and beginning their own exploration. I think it will serve them well, and will ultimately help the world become the positive, compassionate, joyous place we know it can be. I urge you to take a look at yourself and see how you react to daily life. And if you need a little more light, try opening yourself up more to the great things this world has to offer. I bet you won’t be disappointed.

A Day of Seeing it DONE

Creating what you want in the day-to-day goes by many names, a few are manifesting, law of attraction, and my favorite, end point creation.  This name says it all.  Create what your intended final outcome is and leave the details to the universe. After all, who cares how it happens, just that it happens?!

Knowing how this works, I learned, is a far cry from actually doing it.  I decided to dedicate one day to creating by seeing things done.  And what I found was there is so much more creating going on than I ever imagined and I was so focused on the process of doing something that I never really put my attention on what I wanted done.

My day started with a reminder that I needed to write this blog. I had begun writing on a variety of unsatisfactory subjects but today my answer was, yes I will get it written by seeing it done! I followed that up with the simple task of feeding the dogs. I put down the two bowls and immediately began the thought process of how to get my picky dog, Charlie, to actually eat his food without coaxing or the other dog eating it first.  It was automatic. I stopped and decided to simply see it done. Charlie has eaten his breakfast. And I left it alone. I returned to the room to find two dogs licking empty, respective bowls.  Next, I trusted that a full, heavy and open can of paint could be lifted easily and neatly by seeing it sitting on a counter without any spills or painful lifting. I am not saying I had to take no action to move the paint can, but I trusted that I could do it with little effort on my part instead of bracing for the weight and paying close attention to not spilling. It was almost effortless.

Today’s biggest celebration was seeing my daughter’s college account ready for registration. My fears kept wanting to creep in and create worry about the process of how to get it accomplished in time for her to register and attend classes this fall. I focused daily on just seeing it done. The screens will display “no holds”. Everyone is happy to make this their priority too. The steps I needed to take would be clearly explained and easy to follow. And today was that day where everything flowed and fell into place. It is done. Everything is done as I pictured it. It was so much easier and more pleasant to focus on what I wanted instead of my fears and the attempt to control the process.

It’s funny how I had reserved my end point creation for big creations, like trips or money or safe travels. And allowed my days to be stuffed with creations left up to cumbersome processes and habits. Needless to say, I created an awesome day by seeing things done.

New Opportunities

I could have titled this post “Be Careful What You Wish For,” but as you will see, I think “New Opportunities” is more fitting. It all started with the HGTV Dream Home giveaway a few years ago. If you aren’t familiar with this particular giveaway, it’s where HGTV selects a parcel of land in a town and builds what they consider to be a dream home. They, along with their partners, take care of everything from building the home to decorating it. They even include a car (the model varies depending on the partner donating it) and a fairly hefty amount of cash, which presumably is needed in order to afford the taxes and insurance unless you yourself are also flush with cash and can afford to have fun instead with the HGTV monies. But I digress…

That particular year HGTV selected a parcel of land in my town. To say that I was excited is an understatement. I researched the site – which was no easy feat since the location was brand new and hadn’t been included on any maps yet – drove past the area, followed the building process online through their photo montage, and sent lots and lots of energy out into the universe for that to become my new home. I faithfully entered the contest every day, and when I came across a special occasion card with a flashily written “Congratulations On Your New Home” on the front of it, I thought it was serendipity. I purchased the card and set it on a table by my front door where I would be sure to see it every day. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have a visual reminder too!!!

Perhaps by now you see where this is going…  As it turns out, I did not win the dream home. I, along with millions of other entrants, was crushed. I thought that for sure since I lived in the area and had sent out so much positive energy surrounding this house, that the universe should help me win it.  Apparently the universe had other plans.

I largely forgot about the “New Home” card. It remained on my table by the front door. Every once in a while I would glance at it when I walked out the door, or when I was sitting in my living room. I’m not sure that I thought anything about it really other than the fact that it didn’t hurt to leave it there because I couldn’t figure out where else to put it. As it turns out, this bright and happy card has continued to work on my subconscious and on the energy I have sent out to the universe, for a little while ago I found out that my residence is being sold and that I would need to move.

I’ll be honest and tell you that this has been a struggle for me. I am going from a place where I lived for almost 14 years and has ample room, to one that is approximately 1/3 the size. As you might imagine, in almost 14 years I have managed to accumulate a significant amount of “stuff.“ As you might also imagine, having to go through said “stuff“ and determine which things will fit in the new residence and which other things will need to be either sold or donated, is a daunting task. It is not one I have been happy about doing. Nevertheless, bit by bit I’ve been addressing these issues and getting it done. I’m by no means anywhere close to being finished, but I do see the positive side of this move. True, it was not what I had wanted originally, and it is not what I would’ve chosen on my own necessarily, but it does have its benefits and is, I’m sure, exactly what I needed. I’ve come to realize that I needed a complete paradigm shift and that this was the best way to achieve it. It has forced me to take a deep hard look at my possessions and at myself, and to determine what no longer works for me. In short, although it didn’t seem like it at first, I have been given a gift. I have an opportunity to represent myself; myself as I now am and who I want to be instead of the person I once was. I have to say that it feels great. There still some bumps in the road and a lot of work ahead, but I feel positive about the experience now and grateful for it. So, although I didn’t get what I originally wanted, the universe was listening and I did ultimately get what I needed in order to move forward. And I have to say that as far as moving goes, this one has fallen into place fairly well. So my advice to you is this: The next time you encounter something unexpected or unwanted in your life try to see what gifts it might also bring with it. I realize that not every situation has a bright side to it, but many do if we are only open to the message. I heard mine loud and clear. May the same also happen for you!

As the Dream is Collapsing, Remembrance is Unfolding

I am keenly aware that the dream is collapsing. The walls are crumbling down. All the energies that once held the dream together are now in disarray and reconstruction. I feel it means a realigning of sorts, after a period of chaos. At one time, I was afraid of the dream collapsing, and now I am now in complete acceptance. It is an unstoppable force. This is how it must be. And it’s a BEAUTIFUL reformation. I am free. You are free. The dream is free. The energy that once held all of this as prisoner is free. I feel the momentum growing and I often ask myself, “Who am I?” “Who are you?” You may be asking yourself the same questions. The old world is no more. The false contructs are no more. The former identities are no more. There is a new world cycle and it thrives on a new vibration—one of love and liberation. The heart is ALIVE and FREE. This is what we’ve been waiting for! As exhilarating as it is, it can still leave a feeling of emptiness. Attachments are gone. Questions pop up in my consciousness: “What does this mean to me NOW?” “Who am I NOW?” If I’m not the Sandy that I’ve always known, who am I? Sometimes it feels like I’m in an expanse of the void. I feel nothing at all and I’m attached to nothing at all. Yet I know I am everything. As I live in the moment, I am reminded that it’s Okay. All that matters is the NOW. Trusting that we have all we need in each moment and that we don’t need to have all the answers, is important. We don’t need to know who we are now because it will come together at the perfect moment. As we create our new reality, we are creating our new identity. Our authentic selves unfold naturally. All we need to do now is to allow the walls to fall down and allow the detachment to continue. Then we must follow our bliss. TRUST that a new story is unfolding! Trust oneself, because we ARE the guidance. As the dream collapses, it appears like there’s nothing of substance left, and that’s what causes the feeling of void. It can be very uncomfortable at first, however, the void is where we create. As the dream collapses, remembrance begins to unfold. As remembrance unfolds, we live the *MAGIC.*

Lately, I’ve been having a challenging time coming up with the words to describe my feelings–I feel like I’m floating in a sweep of nothing. It feels like a void, and at times, I feel like there is no purpose left for me here. The world feels so different, yet it looks the same. How do you describe it? For me, there’s this sense of nothingness and yet a sense of wholeness at the same time. A perception that it contains nothing, yet it contains everything. I am initially bewildered by my lack of description, yet I have peace that all is well. I often visit my local park to feel more connected to the whole. Whenever I go, I feel alive inside. It’s truly a magical park and I am reminded each time I go that I AM living the magic. (Good) things come easily and frequently, so that certainly wouldn’t be living “nothingness,” would it? If I give myself a moment, I am reminded of who I am and I how connected I am to the wholeness at all times, with or without this park. The wholeness in this park is connected to even more wholeness beyond itself. It is connected to worlds and universes that transcend human understanding. It contains vision that amplifies imagination. I have seen and felt this with my own senses.

Today, I visited my beautiful park to feel that connection that I love to feel there. A story came to my mind and it felt good to my heart, so I’m going to share it with you. It represents some of the things I have been feeling and unable to describe. See how it makes you feel. Does it open up a piece of remembrance? The story goes something like this….

As I am walking in my wondrous park I am in awe of my beautiful surroundings. I feel a sense of being lost, even though my senses see and feel all sorts of wonderful things. I feel connected, yet alone. I feel the nourishment of the earth, the healing waters, the warmth of the sun, and the infinity of the sky. I hear a call in the distance and it speaks through the park presence. “Who are you?” it says. It beckons in the wind, a whisper so soft and clear. “I do not know” I answer back. “I am everything and nothing.”

I take a step forward on the mighty earth and I sense the ground moving beneath me. I sense the support and foundation even while moving. A dazzling snake slithers in front of me. “Who are you?” it asks. “I do not know,” I answer. “I am everything and nothing.” The snake answers, “You are everything. You are transformation and pure life force energy. You own the earth and you have great power over it. Now go forth without fear and regret. Be a creative force. As you live in the now, you become the future.” I thanked the snake and took a moment to process.

I continue to walk upon the earth until I reach a great lake. I stare at its sparkling waters and rolling waves. A swan swoops down and lands before me. “Who are you?” it asks. “I do not know,” I answer. “I am everything and nothing.” “You are everything. You are fluidity, grace, and beauty. Feel your emotions and trust your intuition. Dance in the flow of dream and desire. You are a Flow-er of Energy. As you live in the now, you become the future.” I thanked the swan and took a moment to process.

I depart from the great lake and turn around to look at the mountain. I stare at its majesty and awe. From out of nowhere, a huge phoenix descends upon the rock in front of me. It has an exalted presence that transcends the earth. “Who are you?” it asks. “I do not know,” I answer. “I am everything and nothing.” “You are everything!” says the phoenix. “You are strong and fierce and bold. You are a vital, transmutable force. Rise up from the ashes and feel your power. Light your fire and show the way. As you live in the now, you become the future.” I thanked the phoenix and took a moment to process.

I proceed up the mountain and ascend to its highest point. I become one with the air, one with lightness and infinity. At that moment, a shiny blackbird sweeps down and lands on my shoulder. Its radiance of truth almost blinds me. “Who are you?” it says. “I do not know,” I answer. “I am everything and nothing.” “You are everything,” says the blackbird. “You are mystery and magic and secrets unknown. Your perception penetrates the depths of the ages. Rise to the higher realms and live your purest potential. Love will lead the way. As you live in the now, you become the future.” I thanked the blackbird and took a moment to process.

As I allow the integration of these truths to assimilate into wholeness, I descend upon the mountain and nest in the valley. Just then a striking blue dragon appears from the clouds. It lands gracefully and elegantly. It’s a keeper of alchemical energies. The dragon says to me, “I have been searching for you through a thousand worlds and ten thousand lifetimes. I have found you. I am in awe. You are the Master of all time. You are Master of the earth and all the planets. You are Master of the elements and crystalline light. You are Master of the Universe and the Multiverse. You are Infinity; you are the Expansion. There is nothing you cannot do. You are CREATOR of all. “Now, go forth and use your Creative Force Energy! It’s the essence of your being! The path is crystal clear. Nothing is in your way. No obstacles, no limits. CREATE, CREATE, CREATE. YOU are the Living MAGIC.”

This is my understanding. Dream is Collapsing, Remembrance is Unfolding. As we allow everything to assimilate into wholeness (without fear or judgment), we come ALIVE. There’s nothing we need to hold onto; let it flow out and away. It’s a beautiful unfolding. WE are the masters of the Universe/Multiverse. WE are the LIVING MAGIC. No holding back, GO CREATE!!!

The Art of Remembering

Walking through life today is all about creating as we go. Every second is created and filled with stuff. It’s easy to get bogged down in the detail and emotion of it all. And it seems that becoming aware that we create in the moment only complicates the minute-to-minute with “thinking” about creating. Thinking, judging, rethinking, feeling, judging and rethinking over and over to ensure we are creating exactly what we desire in the moment. It can get overwhelming and paralyzing trying to keep up with the speed we live life and all its unexpected and possibly unwanted hurtles.

Each one of us is here right now for a reason or we wouldn’t be here. That is a challenge for those of us who are unsure of their purpose or those unsure how to move forward with their purpose. Add in the knowing that we create our reality and the pressure mounts. For some it becomes their life’s journey, maybe even obsession, to discover and fulfill that purpose.

We are also called at this time to do things differently to ensure we move this dimension into its next evolution. Something else kind of important we are creating! Most of us can only guess at what that looks or feels like. So how do we create what we don’t know anything about?! How do you create without any knowing?

The answer is the Art of Remembering. We created all of this. We planned every detail. So logically it follows that we have all the answers to every question possible, it’s just a matter of remembering them. Answers from resolving every day-to-day hurtle all the way to fulfilling your life’s purpose, lie in Remembering. Remembering you know how to create in the moment. Remembering you know how to face life’s core issues. Remembering you know how to be happy, joyful and fulfilled. Remembering you know how to remember all of it.

Remembering to remember is probably the most challenging part of creating this way. It changes how we behave and believe. It is a shift from Knowing in your head to Knowing (Remembering) in your heart. It is a shift from using your mental senses of hearing, smelling, seeing, feeling and tasting to the senses of the heart and remembering those. It is changing the basic habits of living.

Trust is another facet of Remembering. I see it as a natural result of being 100% there for yourself. Staying in the authentic self naturally moves us to a place of trust in our heart senses.

Like with any form of art, it takes practice and patience to feel comfortable creating through Remembering. Comfort leads to confidence, which leads to a new level of joy, happiness and fulfillment most of us have yet to remember creating. So, set yourself to flow, go with it and see what you remember along the way!
