DEANE THOMAS: “Love And A Snow Flake”

A snow flake is such an intricate structure; full of molecular bonds and connections. Molecular structures can be so complex that we never fully get to truly appreciate how unique they are. Snowflakes melt very quickly, when they come into contact with our skin. Yet a group together will form a small mound to be appreciated.

Imagine the amount of energy required to create a snow flake, the journey that it undertakes, and the process which it follows. Enduring, yet so beautiful at the same time. The fragility of its very existence is challenged from the moment it is created. Very much like a human love story!!

Much like most things that are created in nature, there is a cycle and a process for its evolution. We all know the beginning and the end of our life story; we are born and we will die! But what happens to our essence? What happens to our spirit? There are many written theories, and no doubt we already know the answer to that! Much the same as coming to terms with love.

In many ways love can be compared to a snow flake. Beautiful experience, complicated structure, and always melts/disappears when we don’t wish it to! Once we grasp the true concept of love then it all begins to make sense. It is throughout life that our soul reminds us through experiences and encounters. Knowing this we shall certainly learn to trust our inner guide not an illusion from the outside.

We will always be guided to where we are needed, where we are going, and when to heal/regenerate. When we are open to receive love, it will be presented. Our soul, our intuition, our instinct will always “know” when it meets or senses true love. This is one thing we can be grateful for. There is no doubt about it, for the universal laws apply. This can happen when we least expect it, and the wonder is simply magic.

The true love essence will be stronger than before because we have healed. Our energy levels will be higher, and our vibration too. We will then begin to follow our inner guidance. Whether we are guided to a new place or a new opportunity or a new person, we shall simply stop questioning and just enjoy everything. Our internal guidance is never wrong, but our thoughts often are and can be!

After years of healing and getting to the truth of our self, it is not time to be repeating the same old stuff we have done for eons. We woke for a reason, and it is not something that has been written about. We were not given any rule book or guidance, we are simply relying on like-minded soul family members to get us to this point. We have conquered the biggest battles any man or woman can, to reach a place of Oneness.

We have prepared the present and future generations with the right balance of information, so that they too understand what love actually is. Now is the time for the hard work to be rewarded with the pleasure of a whole life. A life full of love, happiness and joy — in a place we create for ourselves and our families. We will bring together those that are meant to be with and around us, and together we will create loving communities.

The significance of a snow flake in our lives is one we shall consider, particularly when its beauty and presence are magical. We can always preserve the essence of a snow flake in our mind and body, much the same as love itself. Once we have preserved the essence, we are complete and whole. It is for us then to maintain that wholeness, knowing we are love.

Unconditional love is our natural essence, it is our state of being, and it is who we are!

SWAMI RAMA: “The Spiritual Layers of Man”

“The spiritual body knows all things, lives in utmost purity, and gathers true, divine knowledge. Its energy vivifies and nourishes all the other bodies of man.

~Swami Rama

 

Since the beginning of mankind, man has wondered who he is, what he is doing here, and where he is going after death. He looked at the outer world and fell in awe before the forces of nature. He looked inside and discovered that he was more than a physical body. He experimented with plants and with meditation, and found that he and his environment also existed on other levels of consciousness. He passed on his knowledge orally and later he wrote down his experiences. Thus his fellow human beings and their descendants could learn about this, and on the basis hereof interpret their own experiences.

At present we live in society where the emphases is on material gain and security, by which the other facets of life, namely the spiritual, have been well suppressed.

Nevertheless people continue to experience states of existence, and facets of life, other than the material. From this I have gathered information to present you with an overview of the makeup of man, the different planes of existence available to him, and the continuing of his life after the transition we call death. It is essential to your well-being to know who you are and what happens after death. We all share the gift of living, so we should know who we are; and we all share the same destiny in this life, so we should know what is death.

Human beings like to interpret, categorize and label their experiences. Nature, or life, do not do that. Bear in mind that what follows is an attempt to make the information understandable and clear. Every interpretation, categorization and labeling is artificial and should not be taken as the unmistakable truth. They are like sign posts, giving you an idea what you are about.

The Basic Trinity of Man

The most basic distinction we can make in regards to the make-up of man is that he consists of a personality, an individuality and a divine essence.

The personality is the lower self, consisting of the physical body and the psychic soul. It has the genetics of its forefathers, the energy system to keep the physical body alive, and the psychological and psychic characteristics that define us as human. He has the abilities to express himself through thought, language, and other intellectual capacities.

The personality is a unit of incarnation, it is all those bodies and all those characteristics you have taken on for this incarnation. As it belongs to the world of form, it is temporary. It was created to express yourself in this world on a temporary basis. When you die, the personality dissolves. The experiences you have gained during your lifetime are then being absorbed by your individuality.

The individuality is the higher self. It is the unit of evolution. It does not die but remains the same throughout the many incarnations. It learns from all the experiences in those incarnations. While the personality often does not know why it incarnated, as with every birth memory of the past has been wiped out, the individuality has an overview of all incarnations, and of the meaning of everything that happens to the person. Eventually the individuality will go back into the Divine.

The divine essence is what man always has been, at this moment is, and always will be. Each living being is a part of the Divine. It is often compared with a star, or a light spark. Although it seems that each living being is a separate light spark in this universe of darkness, our divine essence links us all together, as in the Divine there is no distinction, only unity prevails. Our divine essence does not know duality, only unity.

Our language is too limited to express the Divine, but we try it anyway and thus we say that the Divine, and our divine essence, is perfect, immortal, eternal, unchangeable, formless and so on. The individuality and personality are not perfect, mortal, temporal, subjected to change, have form and so on.

The Bodies of Man

There are several systems, doctrines, and philosophies that have their own classification and names for the different bodies of man. Aside from some minor details they all fit together in the following basic schematic.

  • The physical body
  • The astral body
  • The mental body
  • The spiritual body

All these bodies belong to the world of creation, and thus are temporal. They have form and each has a specific function that allows man to express himself in the world.

The Physical Body

The physical body allows man to express himself in the physical world. It is built out of cells, molecules and atoms, and it needs food to survive. It is the most crystallized of al bodies, and the most dense. The physical body is male or female, and this polarity plays an immense role in the life of man.

The physical body is kept alive and structured by the ethereal body. The ethereal body is often seen as a separate body, but it is actually a template, a matrix for the physical body. The physical atoms, molecules and cells arrange themselves according to the structure of the ethereal body. The ethereal matrix looks like a web of energy lines, like light fibers which attract physical matter and arrange it into a physical body.

You can say that the physical body is a duplicate of the ethereal body. Did you know that with children, when a piece of a finger got cut off, the entire finger will grow back again (for some reason this ability gets lost in later years). How do the cells know how to structure themselves in order to grow a new finger? It is because they follow the ethereal matrix along which they align themselves. In primitive animals, like salamanders, this ability remains for their entire live. They will grow a new limb, or tail, easily. The ethereal body is responsible for the pain of so-called phantom limbs. It has been a medical mystery for a long time, that when a limb has been amputated, the patient will feel pain in this limb that actually is not there anymore. The pain is often long-lasting. In the light of the above we can explain this pain in phantom limbs. Although the physical limb has gone, the ethereal counterpart is still there. The surgical removal of that limb created an immense trauma on the body. In normal circumstances traumas settles themselves on muscles, creating muscle spasms which in turn creates pain. As the physical body by itself is inert, the trauma always happens on the level of the ethereal body, which will pass on the trauma to the physical body, mostly to the muscles. In the case of an amputated limb, the trauma is still in the ethereal counterpart of that limb, and thus pain is felt. It just does not have the ability to express itself on the physical level. People have successfully removed this ‘phantom’ pain by methods of relaxation, hypnosis and energy work.

Although the physical body can loose parts or can be deformed during the course of a lifetime, the ethereal body always remains the same. The only change that can happen to the ethereal body is constriction on the energy flow through its fibers (also called nadis). This will result in ailments and diseases in the physical body. When the nadis are ‘cleared’, or the constriction of them lifted, by energy healing of one kind or another, the physical ailments or diseases will disappear.

The ethereal body absorbs the solar and lunar pranas (subtle energies) and transforms them into the necessary life energies for the physical body. They keep the physical body not only alive but also healthy. The ethereal body acts especially on the muscles, and with the ethereal body we experience time.
The physical body, as it is composed of physical matter is by itself inert. It is through the ethereal body that we feel pain, suffering, hunger, thirst and other ‘physical’ comforts or discomforts.

The Astral Body

The astral body is the body that allows us the experience of emotions, lust, instincts, desires and so on.

The astral body does not have organs, although it takes on a form similar to the physical body. It is composed of little astral particles which are in constant movement. The astral body takes up these astral particles from its astral environment and then ‘breathes’ them out again. The astral can take any shape, but usually it takes the form of the physical body of the present or last incarnation as consciousness has gotten used to identifying itself with this form. It is called ‘astral’ body because it glitters like stars when observed clairvoyantly.

The Mental Body

The mental body allows us the experience of thoughts, thinking, and rational processes. The intellect. It still has a form, but not necessarily a human form. Its form is abstract and geometrical, although it can take on an apparent physical form to make oneself recognizable on the lower levels of existence.
The mental body cannot think by itself, as it does not have a consciousness by it own. It is more like an automatic body that stores information and transfers what it receives.

The mental body is sometimes divided into two: The lower mental body, which is the seat of practical thinking; The higher mental body, also called the causal body, which is the level of abstract thinking, and which contains the causes of everything that manifest in the lower bodies and worlds. It contains the knowledge of all past and present incarnations, and the roots of and possibilities of future incarnations. It is the gateway to universal knowledge and spiritual development. Although some authors make a distinction between the causal body and the spiritual body, there are probably one and the same.

The Spiritual Body

The spiritual body allows us to experience the highest forms of human manifestation. We could call it a cosmic body and it is close to divine realm.

It is not a real body as it is not subjected to form. On this level the ego ceases to exists. One is free of duality and its constructs. Here is the experience of oneness of everything that exists.

The spiritual body knows all things, lives in utmost purity, and gathers true, divine knowledge. Its energy vivifies and nourishes all the other bodies of man.

SUSAN VIVYAN: “The Still Point Creates Balance Within You”

Amidst the chatter (inner or outer) remember the still point within you.  You can find your still point via meditation, yoga or any activity connecting you to your flow.  The still point is when you touch the Oneness of All dissolving any worries, fears or concerns and you are immersed in the present moment.

Even for a moment in your conventional time when you find your still point balance is created within your total being.  This still point has nothing to do with time as you know it.  You can be at the still point for a moment and it will extend to other areas of your life unbeknownst to you.  Of course being at the still point every moment of your waking life would allow a clearer perspective.  However, the balance is achieved when the still point and your groundedness to the earth balance one another.

As you become a more integrated multidimensional being the ability to integrate the still point and the groundingness of being on Earth is easier in your time (as you know it).

Being in the flow is different for everyone whether it be meditation, yoga, art, dance, being in nature, or work allowing the inner core full expression.  One activity is no better than the other.  One has to find the activity which activates the flow, the still point where you find your eternal limitless self.

You language is limited, your perspective expanding.  There will come to be a point in time when time is limitless, matters less and there will be other meant to communicate other than verbal exchange.  It is happening NOW.  The still point takes you to the place where words, time, self disappears and your Soul Essence connects to the Oneness of All.  Work that is expansive enhances the Still point that balances the higher dimensions with the earthly reality, aligns the chakras, balancing the masculine and feminine energies.

Find, discover, and explore ways to find your still point.  No pressure.  Play and have fun!

KATIE GALLANTI: “Soul Fatigue — How To Recharge Your Soul Essence In Your Physical Body”

bffa841df8e8dca3c8d82af56ee5e5f0b5a280f8

“This is a very simple process, recharges you and boosts the vibration of both your self and the Earth.”

~Katie Gallanti

 

A lot of old souls are really tired right now. The project Shift Earth has been lasting a few years too many and many feel that they are barely still standing while they crawl to the finish line.

Honor your Soul fatigue, but also don’t quit… ask the universe to recharge you and know that it will. Also ask for your field to be cleared and for your energy to be topped up at night, so that you can truly rest when you sleep. Many of us need the rejuvenation.

Also ask to be cleared of collective energy. While it is important for us to contribute to the collective field and stabilize it, we don’t have to carry the collective energy 24/7. A lot of chaos right now, some of it manufactured, so important to have clear fields and ongoing Source downloads, so we can contribute to the uplifting the energy, rather than being drowned by it.

Imagine the Source energy descending into your crown, spreading into your body, and recharging and uplifting every cell and molecule within you. And then see this energy descending to your root chakra, rooting into the ground and charging the Earth Core. See the energy then pulsing outwards, clearing and recharging the Earth field and its grids.

This is a very simple process, recharges you and boosts the vibration of both your self and the Earth. Very needed at this time to counter conflict and chaos energies.

 

Sending Love

KARA SCHALLOCK: “Security and Knowing”

mandala2 (2).jpg

We continue to receive ongoing downloads of Light; there is no timetable for the downloads; they occur at perfect moments individually for each of us. Some downloads flow easily, while others seem to take our breath away. However you experience them is divinely orchestrated for you. Many of us are guided to go within and stop all outward busy-ness. Meditation and Silence as well as Nature are essential tools; more than they have been in the past. Still, there are those who continue their attachment to the outer world looking for answers or some sort of guidance. Guidance is found in the quiet times; the times of non-attachment. We can do both… be still and continue to observe the outer world. The key here is observation and detachment. I see the outer “chaos” as a positive sign that all is proceeding as it is intended to. Remember that Transformation requires a breakdown before a breakthrough. And a breakthrough is seen in some scenarios, is it not?

If one seeks security outside of themselves, they may very well be disappointed. For the only true Security is found within. We think Security comes from our paycheck or our relationships or our bank account, yet this is little security and it changes and shifts. What may seem secure in one moment is gone in the next. This little view of lower ego-security certainly can bring up fear, can’t it? If one can stay centered in their own Security (Soul Essence)… no matter what the outer is doing… they feel safe. Outer security definitely brings up insecurity; and this too is a gift, for it gives each being an opportunity to release these old and limiting energies of insecurity, not feeling safe and fear out in the open for release. Realize too that the energy of insecurity comes from lifetimes of old rules, separation and the fear of not being safe. Even the chaos of our present-time world is a gift, for it helps us identify where we hold fear, judgment, paranoia, discrimination and all things that keep separation alive and well. As we release these energies of separation, we find Peace within. When we feel peaceful, we shine our Light out, which touches all. Our Perspective shifts; we see things differently and through the eyes of Source. We see that the world is not an unsafe place, but truly a place of Love.

The old matrix/paradigm is for sure crumbling. This crumbling is a positive thing, for it leads to the New eventually. When one can be in their Center of Peace, they shift their perspective to see the “good” in even what the old mindset would judge as “bad.” As frequencies rise, the Light shines on all that is not Love and this is all that is separate in life. If one would look closer and deeper, they would see the Truth that is beneath the rubble and that is Love and Transformation. It is only when one is attached to how something “should” be that there is pain. When we let go of old assumptions and not wanting things to change, we are free.

What is Transformation and how can we be sure that it leads to something better? Transformation is a complete shift from the old to the New. It depends on what you hold in your Heart. If you don’t think anything will change, you hold doubt in your Heart. If you trust that Love is truly all there is, then Love is in your Heart. We know that we create through consciousness. When Love is your consciousness, then that is all that can be created. When fear is your consciousness, then that is what is created. Again, we choose. First comes the choice and then Commitment to that choice and from Commitment is being that which you choose to be in everything you say, do and feel. Through consciousness, we create the New Earth. Is it Love you choose or fear?

Is this easy? I would say no unless you truly flow with What Is. When you flow with What Is, you accept that which is hindering you so that you can let it go. We have had lifetimes of fear and persecution, which has created a heavy boulder of fear and unsafety within. It is our choice to release this and it may not be quick, for there are many layers that go deep. However, if one begins to let go of this old dark energy, they/you feel lighter and freer, even when there are more and more layers to release.

Along with releasing this old fear and insecurity, it is also important to realize that much of the ancient civilizations  that many hold as something to emulate, were rife with separation (rules, roles, expectations, etc.). It is best to let it all go, including the illusions you hold dear, and allow the New to unfold. So not only do we release our personal histories, we may choose to release our cultural histories as well, including all the illusions within those histories. This is a big task, so deep do these go and our love for them. As we cleanse, we also cleanse the Earth. This most likely feels huge to you as well and you may encounter much resistance within you. Yet unless we let go of everything, the New is delayed.

We are creating positive change. It may seem daunting and even impossible, yet it truly is happening. The more we commit to this personally, the more things in the world shift. As a way to affirm this, just look at your life, the world and how your body has shifted. Those of us who are ultra-sensitive feel much in our bodies and as we shift, our bodies feel this physically. Much of how we have experienced this physical shifting has changed for some. They may include (or not, for everyone is unique in their experience) a sense of not being in your body (feeling ungrounded, dizzy, etc.), different experiences in digestion and elimination, fluctuations of emotions (some may feel depressed when they never have before), lack of motivation to do much of anything, sleeping patterns vary widely, and these are just a few and meant to confirm your Ascension and let you know that you might not even notice that you are shifting, for all is slow to help us acclimate to the energies, although it may not seem slow at all.

As Sensitivity expands, you notice things you have not noticed before. Your Awareness becomes more acute and your senses are accentuated, as is your Intuitive Knowing. Realize too that a lot of what you experience are not only the downloads of Light, but you are also detoxing the old from your cells, tissues, organs, bones and muscles. You may still be in the old habit of wondering if it was something you ate or some malady you picked up. This is old thinking and a way to continue an old pattern of complaint and blame. The ultra-sensitive ones truly are required to keep their Solar Plexus clear, as it is easy to take on others’ toxins and old beliefs. Ask your body what it needs without following old rules of what’s good or bad for you. Your body will respond to you. And if you bump into things or stub your toe or something like that, your message is to slow down, ground and be in the Present Moment.

Our True Selves want nothing but the best for us (as us), and so anything that interferes with that will be “problematic,” which is a way of saying that we simply cannot exist in the old any longer, so shift to where you flow instead of blindly following your self or culturally-imposed rules that surely limit you. Being authentic means to be who you are everywhere you are and by me saying “be who you are,” I mean your Soul-self. I wonder how many of us are truly authentic, since we have been molded by culture and family values and beliefs. At times, it is self-loving to set boundaries in order to be authentically you. In time, there will be no need for boundaries, as all those around us accept fully who we are. Being authentic is being Love and there is no greater Truth than this.

Some of us have been having lots of memories of the past. These memories come up because they are releasing, yet many want to hold onto them, because it’s better than having nothing to hold onto now. Let them go. As we let the memories go, with them we release beliefs and patterns and old ways of being. It’s best not to cling to them for comfort. Find your comfort within. Have Faith; trust in what is here now in this Moment. Allow all to surface, even memories you have deemed “bad” or “good.” It all comes up to be loved and then released. With the release comes greater Love.

If you are concerned about not finding your “tribe,” since this seems to be a popular notion, realize that your “tribe” will not be found by seeking, but by being authentically yourself. If you find you don’t relate with anyone, let it be all right. A “tribe” is just a word that symbolizes a longing to belong. You belong to a bigger energy, so honor who and where you are. There is nothing wrong with you if you find you cannot relate to anyone or to just a few. Treasure those you find Resonance with and let the rest go.

As we continue to receive more Light and we continue to let go of what is not Love, we are also blessed with synchronistic meetings and surprising events that are joyful and meaningful. These connections help you evolve more as the Love you are, helping you be more. Continue to follow the energy; what expands, expands you; what contracts, contracts you. In this way, you are Divinely guided to be who you are meant to be. Pay attention to where and to whom you resonate. Your Heart and Soul know the way, while your intellect will hold you back in the past.
