2016: Transformational Warp Speed…

warpspeed… and dare I say it? Boldly going where we haven’t gone before (in exactly this way, at least)…

2016 has been HUGE in ALL ways… and the exponential curve of change continues to climb!

As the ego/separation-based mind is the creator of “Why?” (since we’ve forgotten), I could give you any of dozens of explanations to this, from the most vanilla to the most psychedelic and lusciously visual. There are many of them already out there in various spiritual discussions, forums, and messengers; you can consider all kinds of perspectives, from all kinds of practices… yet they’re all essentially different languages with the same messages that basically remind us what we already know, because we created it (and we’re LIVING it)! And, it’s different to every individual in the way they’re carrying it out; thus, different explanations will resonate with different individuals; it’s all about the filter of the individual journey.

However, we often spend so much time on the mind asking, “Why?” (a distraction) that we’ve forgotten what’s actually most important: our presence to the energy of NOW, and in whatever way works for us to remember how to navigate it from higher consciousness (rather than managing from the much, much more challenging ant’s view on the ground in 3D).

Are We There Yet? “Shifting Between” and “Stepping Through”… and HUGE Transformation

transformationsymbolsIf I could pick a symbolic mascot for the energy of this year, I wouldn’t be able to come up with one; I would say it’s a 4-way toss up between the snake, the butterfly, the dragon, and the phoenix. Get the picture? The intensity of the mascot would depend on the individual and their own level of resistance or acceptance.

2016 seems to the “shifting between” and “stepping through” year, in the biggest way I can remember! The extreme of shedding what we’ve been, of the old stories and roles that we used to prefer to define us and the old 3D-defined way of living, of the death hold grip on to the past in whatever doesn’t serve us in the highest and best way (which is a LOT).

This has gone on in a huge scale BOTH individually and through many levels of collectives (look at many of our political institutions, as one very fine example of this going on). Somewhere along the line, we jumped into Warp 9!

That’s a whole lot of transformation going on!

What this has manifested has been indicative (remember, everything’s a message) of anything left within that is holding us back from stepping unimpeded into “what’s next”… and that includes what we do the best to mask or hide, in the deepest recesses of our shadow side. Time to look at it, embrace it, love it… so it stops allowing us to limit ourselves.

There’s no avoiding it anymore.

If we haven’t been proactively doing this… then our Higher Self is doing it for us, in spades, telling us quite blatantly, “It’s time, NOW… for this to be done with!” Much of it is based in some deep form of self-loathing and beliefs of unworthiness in some way, shape, or form… all born from the experience of forgetting that we are ALWAYS Divine, ALWAYS whole, and never truly separate!

Because these manifestations bring up what the ego deems as most uncomfortable into the light of conscious attention, there’s often initially a LOT of denial by the ego in these situations – “I can’t help that I got into a car accident!” or “I’m just victim to ________________” (you name it, anything that can be blamed on what’s “out there”… though here’s the joke: NOTHING is “out there”; it’s simply a projection of what’s inside).

How this has manifested in being brought to the surface:

  • All kinds of physical ailments, often including those that can be considered life-threatening (I said the deepest recesses, didn’t I?) – cancer of all kinds, immune system dysfunction, disorders showing up from an organ or organs shutting down (like diabetes), allergies, joint pain/degradation (very often hips, knees, and ankles), and all kinds of what’s considered chronic illness;
  • Physical ailments of all kinds that are undiagnosable via “standard methods,” including aches, pains, and “medical oddities” of all kinds, which I often attribute to the physical body transmuting to a different form altogether;
  • Injuries and “accidents,” which are messages to “WAKE UP!” and look at something right in front of or behind us;
  • Death of all kinds in our realities, including loved ones, pets, relationships, jobs, habits, and living situations.

With such abbreviated timelines of resolution now in this manifested reality, in this tremendous year of shifting from “past” to “now” (and ultimately “next), in a magnificent, Universal way, the Higher Self knows the message has to be LOUD AND CLEAR for rapid addressing and resolution. Yes, it can be uncomfortable to the ego… but it’s effective, and productive, that’s for sure! We can make it as colorful, illustrative, or complex as we want, but eventually, we’ve been forcing ourselves to face and embrace full self-responsibility for our journey.

This is phenomenal, because it IS us forcing ourselves into even more rapid and complete – and TRUE – transformation; it also assures we re-align ourselves to exist in love and Wholeness/Oneness in ALL of thought, word, and deed… to come back existing consciously as our Divine Self, and to remember that true creation is based from THAT.

The way to actually navigating all of this has nothing to do with astrology, runes, predictions, channellings, light grids, or ANYTHING we want to use to externalize it (I’ve heard all too often, “Oh, this is terrible… can’t wait until __________ is over!” Or, “It’s the energy of ___________ that’s causing this to manifest in my reality!”). We can do everything we can to blame and/or to give our power away to outside influences, but it’s VERY important to remember though all are fabulous tools and faces we’ve created to remind ourselves as they reflect back to us in a way that can help align the mind/ego, that they are just that: tools. They are the message; NOT the cause! All that is outside of us is a PRODUCT/PROJECTION of what’s inside. My understanding, and a foundation of how my practice (and the Trinity practice) works – and it does, very effectively – is that we, as the Divine, have created everything we planned to forget in the illusion of separation. It’s when we forget (or refuse) to go fully inside to find the answers that we already have that we, from the Higher Self, project the messages to reflect back to us from what presents itself as outside of us. The more we go inside… the less that have to “remind” us on the outside. The more we go inside – and remember how to be IN-dependent – the more efficient it all becomes, because there becomes no more “going outside to go inside”… an extra step in the process.

We stop looking to others and tools being the conduits, the catalysts… then realize and step into remembering that we are that ourselves. And note that once we DO shift all of this to inside of ourselves, to make ourselves and our IN-dependence priority in the process, that’s when the magic really happens! 

All of these tools are a great help… as long as they don’t become crutches! Trinity Energy Progression itself is a tool I volunteered to bring here and now that, when used, serves to help open an accelerated path to remember all of this! Any/all energy healing modalities (including Reiki), medicine, words, practices are tools that we created from our Divine Wholeness. In fact, in Glastonbury this past spring, I was given yet another tool to share with the world to aid in all of this, the Water Flame, which we’ve discussed with those within the Trinity practice, and I will openly share publicly in the very short term. We’ve put all of this here – so many high-vibrational tools and TOYS – to help us remember our own Divine consciousness, so as we go along, we realize that all of it is our Self, our Whole… and nothing is separate. We can create representations in any form we want, but eventually, it’s important to remember they are just representations. The pure creation and infinite magic comes from within.

2016 and My Magical Journey
thetor

The Tor, Glastonbury, England (aka Avalon)

This year has been a huge evolution in presence for me! I’ve been guided to so many different places, here in the 3D – Glastonbury, UK; the Florida Keys; Mount Shasta, CA; shortly to Orcas Island, WA, along with many road trips that have come up via guidance – and what has come through to me throughout the year, in these experiences and more, has been so big that I’m just starting to be able to pull it together to share with others. AND.. I’ve been very actively focusing my consciousness throughout many other realms. I know that my remembrance has continued to open up exponentially this year (definitely Warp 9+ LOL), and it’s been a constant push by my Higher Self to step out of the freneticism of this dimension and physicality to observe and see the larger perspective from a larger inclusion level. There have been periods of time within this time/space continuum where I know I’ve functioned, and yet, I remember much, much more that has no words… and very little of the 3D functioning… though my client sessions, teachings, and tool production to help others on their journey have been phenomenal! (And, a side note: I’m SO blessed to have such a supportive and conscious husband who takes note of this, and “welcomes me back” warmly when I again shift my focus!)

2016 has been punctuation on the importance of releasing the belief that we “need to ground” and instead allow ourselves to remember the simultaneously full connection at ALL levels of consciousness, in all dimensions, including this one, without shutting out any of it. This allows us to consciously function beyond limitation of any dimension or any level of consciousness! Yes, we connect this part of our consciousness to the Earth, AND we allow constant multi-dimensional consciousness which also helps us to see the bigger picture from much more than our 3D mind. The reason for this importance is resolution at so many levels of consciousness, so much separation created throughout the Universe… and remembrance that we are ALWAYS part of the Wholeness, Oneness, or whatever you’d like to call the Universal Consciousness. And it’s when we can look through all of these levels simultaneously that we can allow them to resolve together, liberated from the partitions we’ve created to the nth degree… and exist consciously in completion.

waterflame400x400While I’ve been in quite an advanced mode of remembering how to do this and how to do it consciously and continuously… there are periods of no words and no identity; this is something I’ve (and we’ve) been VERY unused to here in the 3D! As I’ve watched from the Higher Consciousness of this resolution within me and within the collectives of which I’ve held specific roles, I’ve noted the dissolution of so much of the ego’s identities and roles… not just the 3D identities and roles, but also those at much, much higher levels of consciousness, including identities held within avatars, within collectives. And, because of this, there have been periods when I haven’t had any pull to do or be ANYTHING this year, which was a really new experience… where the ego kept on trying to insert a feeling of uncertainty and being lost as its “old job” was dying away. My guidance, during those continuous, energetically huge periods, has been to float in the bliss of remembering BEingness and trust that I’m supported in all ways, at all times! It caused me to pull back from many of my previous business activities and efforts, to let go of what I was doing before… so I could create the space that allows for “what’s now” and “what’s next” without any filter of identity, which ultimately limits us.

For quite awhile, I had no idea what that was… and instead, just sat in and remembered how to be comfortable in this Divine BEingness… and ENJOY my existence! When I did, lo and behold, the Universe provided abundantly, in more of an effortless manner than I’ve ever experienced and in many unexpected ways. Even with no identity, with no drive, no pull… things have all just happened in a way that flowed together, almost completely beneath my conscious radar.

All of this simply prepared me for what was to come next: The challenge of conscious reassimilation of all separated parts. For an example, it’s like looking at myself here and myself in another timeline, another level of consciousness… and everything gets overlaid together, because, in essence, that’s the Whole. For simplicity’s sake, I might have, say only 2 lessons that cause small bumps in the road in one version of me… what happens when I overlay all of those pieces and parts of me, if each of them have 2 different bumps? It suddenly feels like a huge, overwhelming task as we set the intention to flow through, unimpeded, easily.

It’s sudden, and it’s fast. The Higher Self says, “OK, let’s finish this off… but free from distraction…” So, I get exactly what I choose… once the bumps are all cleared out of the way. This is the importance from managing from higher consciousness… as that has become my norm, I’ve more and more become unattached to the “bumps,” and then they just flow through and away, more and more easily… and I’ve simply flowed on.

Eventually, clarity comes in as what’s now and what’s next from the much, much higher consciousness.

As I said, there are very few words to describe a lot of this. I’ve embedded this post with far more understanding that the words can encapsulate! All I can explain is that I know I exist completely differently than I did coming into 2016… which is a lot to say! I’d say it’s been an attainment… but it’s really been further remembrance that’s become exponential as the illusion further strips away.

acceptanceMy result: I love this existence and the 3D part of my experience even more than I ever have! Even with all of what’s considered “the ugliness” of what’s around us, of the huge changes that continue in every day, of the metaphorical tower crumbling because the infrastructure doesn’t work for us anymore, what’s beautiful is the symphony of completion we’re conducting, and what we’re creating beyond that, of what’s starting to show as the rubble falls away. Don’t get me wrong… there’s a LOT more to go, but the Class 5 rapids have already begun; we can be obliterated by trying to stop in fear or resistance of any kind… or we can LET GO, flow with it, listen to and 100% trust the inner voice to navigate us through… and watch how we create as we go.

Are there challenging moments? Only when I/we choose to experience them that way…and when we forget to listen what’s within! When our mantra and conscious practice becomes aligning all thought word and deed in unity and unconditional love (which is what I and other Trinity instructors teach in the Self-Development via Divine Consciousness class as well as the Practitioner class), it changes the world even faster… and even more smoothly. So choose to let go of what’s crumbling and enjoy the ride into what’s now and what’s next!

As for me… next week, I’m off to a blissful annual retreat with the Trinity instructors – my amazing, beautiful, conscious soul family – tucked away in the remote Washington San Juan islands in the furthest northwest corner of the United States, where I KNOW we will join in pure love, other-dimensionality, play, and MAGIC, as we always do together! That’s all there is… carpe diem!

Namaste,

This Blog is SO Five Minutes Ago!

TimeLots of people have felt this: Something happens, particularly emotional, and an hour later, it can feel like two hours ago. After becoming a Trinity Energy Progression™ Practitioner (Jan ’14), and then a Facilitator (July ’15), I noticed this phenomenon start to happen regularly; an hour ago could feel either like five minutes or a day ago. Lots of practitioners and facilitators I know have spoken about this and we all laugh about it. What I hear is that it’s timelines collapsing into one. I can’t say I fully grasp that, but I’ve heard it so much that I just accept it and live my life…or lives…which are all happening now…not in the past…or the future…despite that it really feels like time moves forward, I’m told it doesn’t…it’s all now…did you miss it? Here it is again…did you miss it? Here it is again…do you understand now? No? Don’t ask me…I just live here.

There is a rotating schedule for writing these blogs. I was happy with my previous ones. For the first one, a topic came to me while I was walking. Great. For this one I typed a title that I was feeling last week. It felt good, but I didn’t write anything at the time. I put it on my desktop so I’d see it and remember I had a blog to write. When I looked at that title, I felt, ‘That was last week. I’m not feeling that now.’ The thing is, I’m sitting here writing this all at once and by the end it may feel like…meh.

It can be difficult if every five minutes you are someone new! This is a good thing; you are constantly changing and shedding yourself. That’s a great example of being in the flow, which is one of the best lessons shown to me by Trinity. But it can be a pebble in your shoe when your trying to find a name for your Website or business and you keep changing every five minutes.

While this can be frustrating (if you are someone who allows that type of thing), what it’s really showing is how awesome life is and, especially, how much we have grown. If we don’t react to and accept when things like this happen, that is a sure sign you are doing very well, Young Padawan! You are the proverbial duck allowing water to roll off of its back. It is constant checking of yourself; ‘You did well in this moment…now how about this one?’ Constant, it never ends, just like you. You never end, so why would this? It’s constant inward awareness, which is what all of this is really about. And yet, that awareness from five minutes ago can seem like an hour ago, which can seem like a week ago to infinity…plus one.

I see this particular blog as more fun than a topic that I am bothered by at this moment (or this one). This doesn’t really bother me a lot. The reason for writing it at this point did come from someone saying about how limiting the word healing is to them now because it implies the past and we have moved past that. I didn’t have any doubt about my Website name (TSHealing) one second before that sentence. But when it was said, I could feel it. That made me want to look for a new name. But when I really check in if this is something I want to change, at this moment, the answer is yes, but it’s not too pressing although I am now getting myself out there more than I ever have so this is something I want to change. It’s just that when I chose the name, it was over a year ago. I’m not that person anymore. But if I chose a name now, I won’t be that person anymore either probably by the time I finish typing this sentence…now…period.

What I can remind myself is the Website is not for me, it’s for everyone else. And while I do want it to feel reflective of who I am, who I am doesn’t sit still long enough for GoDaddy to take the money out of my checking account when I buy a new domain name that I no longer feel represents me. What does that bring us to? No words. We are heading towards not using words anymore because we can feel the limitations of them. It doesn’t make them a bad thing, it just…how do I put this… … …

So here we are in what feels like the end of this blog. It started taking about how time no longer feels like what it used to and now is about words no longer being enough to relay the energy we now feel and are. I will say that I do not feel ‘meh’ here at the end of it. I actually feel very good because I didn’t know where this river was going when I started! I just allowed it to flow. While I can feel that I’ve let something go, I can also feel closer to something even five minutes later. This blog is both. I feel closer to my own divinity by just jumping in and allowing it to take me wherever it will.

However, one thing you will never hear said is, ‘That love is so five minutes ago’…

Remembering the Peace Within

sun reflectionsI see the earth as a living being, Mother Earth. With all of her inhabitants being passengers…and even parasites at times. Our relationship with her is symbiotic: If one suffers, we all suffer. We all know this. Science explains this in minute details! Philosophers have talked about it for ages.

If I focus on this concept and allow the true meaning to flow forward, I can see the interconnectedness of everything. Every facet of my reality has meaning and messages for me. I designed it that way!  I see each person as a reflection of the world they have created for themselves with their messages and meanings. And then as we connect each person to the next and we have a bigger picture of this reality, it has meaning and messages for those contributing to its design. So as we move farther and farther out, bringing us a bigger and bigger picture, the meaning and messages are for a bigger and bigger audience. You get the picture I’m painting here!

So if I believe the above is true, the inverse must be true too. The messages and meanings from the bigger perspective must have meaning for me too. Appearing on a grand scale or up close and personal in my day-to-day life. Struggle and strife in the world reflects struggle and strife in the individuals. This is where I find the opportunity to remember. To remember I am all of this: beauty, ugly, weak and strong. Loved and unloved. In this remembering, there is a sense of peace that I haven’t found anywhere else. A peace that means the struggle and longing are over, we are done, we have it all. We are it all and it is perfect! As we remember the peace within each of us, it begins to reflect outward into the bigger picture, the bigger picture of the wholeness. Each of us is a reflection of the wholeness. Just as each drop of water reflects the sun after a rainstorm in the picture above, we reflect the wholeness.

Endings and Beginnings: Progressing Unencumbered

MaryBlog0316-bAs we’re all aware, life is accelerating. In the past several weeks alone, we’ve had Leap Day, a total solar eclipse in Pisces, and watched the Downton Abbey finale (sniff 🙁 ). Though these may seem unrelated, I consider all three examples of endings and beginnings.

I love the idea of Leap Day – once every four years, we have an extra day devoted exclusively to moving forward! The timing was perfect for it to occur this year, while we’ve been stepping beyond our previous mode of healing wounds/releasing the past to creating our new reality. I’m reminded of an astrology reading suggesting that instead of deciding what to take from the rubble of my past, I simply turn around and step into my future. That seems true for us all: time to remember how to leap forward into our custom-designed lives.

The solar eclipse in Pisces on March 8th represented another doorway to our future selves. In a total solar eclipse, the sun, moon and earth align, with the moon between the earth and the sun. This temporary blockage of the sun is a time of transition, of facing and integrating our shadow side so we can proceed beyond the limited experiences of our past into greater wholeness. We may feel snapped into awareness of situations that previously felt acceptable but are no longer. We may be inspired to create objects or opportunities that better express our inner truth. I took the above picture of a Hallmark bag slogan, which is very much the message of the eclipse. Let bygones be bygones! Keep your focus in the NOW, which we’re creating as we speak.

As a devoted fan of Downton Abbey, I relished the final episode. However sanitized a representation of early 20th century British aristocracy, I enjoyed the empowered female characters, the embrace of modernized social structure and the triumph of love in healthy, balanced relationships. (Minor spoiler alert for those who haven’t seen the finale!) The final scene at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve following an a-cappella rendition of “Auld Lang Syne” captured the idea of standing at the threshold. I share Granny and Isobel Crawley’s high hopes for the future: “Whatever it may bring … We’re going forward into the future, not back into the past.”

Priority #1: LOVE YOURSELF

loveyourselfThe saying goes, “we are our own worst critic,” and it is so true!  What I notice most about myself and the clients with whom I work is… we can be really mean and hateful to ourselves. We beat ourselves up for things we felt we should have done better and we often give little credit when appreciation is due.

I did not realize how negative my thoughts were about myself until one day I was at a spa taking a mineral bath.  I decided to go through each of my body parts and send loving thoughts to all of my body, piece by piece.  As I did this and moved around from my eyes, to my nose, to cheeks, chest, stomach and so on, I remembered all the nasty thoughts I had in my past about nearly EVERY single body part.

I had been completely unloving to myself and my physical body. I have had negative thoughts about my nose, my eyes, arms, stomach, thighs, hips, legs, head, feet, hands and on and on. The only body part that I never was cruel to was my ears and elbows!!  Pretty much everything else had been attacked in one way or another.

This is just one example of how my thoughts have been directed towards my body. I could spend another few pages talking about how mean I am about other aspects of my life, but let’s not go there today. You get the point.

I believe many of us experience these discouraging thoughts about ourselves. My goal here today is to let you know you are not alone in this experience. Nearly EVERYONE has these thoughts!

So, what can we do? I have a few tips that can help you shift the energy around how you feel about yourself. These have been effective for me as I am moving towards more self-love and acceptance. These suggestions also help to increase awareness about how you really are treating yourself.

SUGGESTIONS TO LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF A LITTLE MORE!

  1. Look at yourself, or rather into your eyes every day in front of the mirror and tell yourself how much your love yourself. Let you know how amazing and wonderful you are.  (Sometimes, I can’t quite feel that emotion, so if I’m not “feeling” it that day, I ask that I love myself as much as source/god/creator/the universe loves me).
  2. Find ways to appreciate yourself. Give yourself compliments and encouragement even if you just did something small.  Maybe you went for a walk instead of watching TV.  Give yourself a pat on the back.
  3. Notice when you’re being “mean” or experiencing negative self-talk. Chose a mantra or a phrase that helps to shift from that experience.  My favorite is, “I love and accept myself just the way I am with unconditional love”! Repeat this as needed and even more powerful to do in meditation.
  4. Journal or meditate about your feelings. Some of these lower vibration thoughts and feelings need a place to go and need to be acknowledged.  Release them by writing them out, by meditating on them or allowing the emotion to be expressed.  Sometimes we just need a good cry to let these go.
  5. Practice vigilant self-care every day and every week. Do something every day that supports your well-being.  It could be taking a 10 minute walk or a 10 minute breathing meditation.  It could be to read an inspiring message from a book or article.  Then do something once a week that really makes you happy for at least an hour!
  6. Be patient with yourself. You are here to experience these challenges to overcome them and ultimately come from a place of unconditional love for self and all.  I may be an idealist, but I believe that is our true nature to be in a state of LOVE and we can ALL get there!!

Coming from the perspective that loving yourself is your number one priority allows you to get in touch with who you really are.  It helps you to shift more quickly from less than desired feelings to feelings of joy, happiness, love and peace.  Isn’t that what most of us are striving for?  Enjoying life, helping others and feeling good? If you get in with and follow your heart, you will find your way back to LOVE!
