This is a great article that combines humor and seriousness around important topics for reflection. It goes along with things both Laura and I have shared about the importance of balance, not forgetting our parts, shadow work value, grounding, and the physical being as key as the spiritual, so integrating lower chakra work with the upper chakras is what will bring us wholeness..not escapism and denial, which is the either/or syndrome.

Thank you, Julian, for articulating these very important topics and considerations! A note from Julian’s reply to a commenter on ZenGardner.com:
OK – I’ll admit – this article combines tongue in cheek humour and serious reflection..
‘To posit’ (see beginning) is not ‘to know’ – it means to put forward a suggestion. I do not know.
So I am stimulating our thinking process here – getting it to look around at elements that it may not have engaged with before – and digging at the ‘purist spiritual’ outlook that seems not to be able to integrate sexuality into spirituality because they think it degrades it.. Likewise – those of this opinion also refrain from taking actions to do something practical to improve life on this planet..

Here’s Lee with May’s Energy Forecast – his final broadcast from Boulder, Colorado before his San Francisco move – that shares about the need for personal attention to support your heightened sensitivities right now.
What do you need to support yourself? Make sure to monitor your energy and how you’re creating balance with what you need…enough space…enough tribe/community…enough quiet and nature…enough connection. You would do good to monitor yourself and be extra present to these energy fluctuations.
Your own inner needs are essential to have met.
Don’t try to be positive or to leave your dark side at home….be authentic…be present….communicate what you’re feeling both the difficult and easy…be you!
Giving people a headline of where you’re at so others understand you more helps both the non-sensitive and sensitive to have a clearer connection to the energy you’re feeling. This doesn’t mean to give all the details of your life, but just sharing that you’re going through some struggles right now.
If you’re alive, you’re growing, so don’t judge yourself along the way when you move through a wide gamut of feelings. Get good at just noticing and managing your stress levels, and understanding your personal processes without attachment or judgment.
This and more in Lee’s share:
I’ve been wanting to share about this topic for a while, but hadn’t the time to put together my thoughts. I was prompted again the other day, to bring it to light, as I heard some rap songs playing somewhere that I was, which made me shake my head at how degrading they were about women, the female body, and sex in general. I was sad and also upset thinking about how people go around singing along with these songs on a daily basis, creating chants and affirmations that are completely conditioning them into more unconscious and blind acts and feelings that are harmful to themselves, others, and the collective at large – this being just ONE way this continues to take place.
It hit a deep chord, to say the least, that stirred my lower Chakras into unrest over the ways we are continually bombarding ourselves with conditioning that destroys our potentials to be all-empowered.
This is not a new topic for me, although I may not have shared yet about it, however since we also discussed this in depth while on our sacred journey in Peru – how priestesses and priests used sexual alchemy in spiritually empowering ways – and I’ve been feeling another surge of lower Chakra energy waves coming through personally and collectively in the vein of this theme, I felt to share it in more depth.
Sexual alchemy was something practiced amongst the high priests and priestesses of the ancient civilizations, who held this sexual knowledge and utilized it for transmutation, divinity of union, sexual rituals of spiritual initiation and activation, healing and enlightenment, Earth communion to create harmony and abundance through harvests, and more. Being that I remember myself practicing this in many of my other lives, it is not simply an idea, but a personal reality embodied in my DNA.
We then have the churches and patriarchal societies that destroyed and ensured this knowledge would be hidden, and anyone involved in it, to be punished, tortured, condemned to “hell”, and even killed. And then from this repression, guilt, fear, and hidden suppression we then get things like degradation of women, sex becoming something done secretly or held as “dirty”, and pent up energies that violently abuse the beauty, power, and spirituality it once was revered to embody.
The nature of sacred, sexual magick and alchemy hasn’t changed, as that knowledge and power always has been and could be accessed whenever we want, as it is the root of our existence.
It is the conditioned beliefs and fears that have distorted these sacred acts of creation, once again in effort to suppress our ability to be empowered, whole, and consciously sovereign co-creators of life.
Charlotte Szivak does such a wonderful job shedding a little light on this subject of sexual alchemy and magick, that I am going to share her insightful article on this topic. And perhaps you’ll be inspired to explore this topic more, as well as dig deeper into your own experience to explore just how this energy may be suppressed in your own life, as we are all collectively affected by this.
As Charlotte shares:
“The sacred actually lives within your body. By engaging in conscious acts of sex, it can lead to transcendent experiences of bliss and self-realization. Many of these sacred sex leaders would teach how to direct desire and raise emotional vibration in order to achieve one’s goal. They don’t speak, however ‘to the power of sexual desire used as fuel to have our wildest dreams come true. This is the secret beyond the secret: sex magic’.
When we engage with intent, we do so by remembering that sacred sex is so much more than just the mere physical joining of our bodies in orgasmic delight. It releases the pain of the unexpressed anger suffered in silence for a millennium in shame and perversion carried around, and sexuality is transformed. We become vulnerable, authentic, transparent and powerful. Igniting our souls and awakening our hearts in become the sacred door or gateway to expanded experiences of orgasmic ecstasy. Remember, it is love that invokes the divine.”

It’s been a Crystal Magick kind of week and I’m getting ready to teach a full day crystal workshop today after giving two Crystal talks the last consecutive evenings at Chapman University. I love seeing people inspired by their relationships to Crystals, which connects them more to the heart of themselves and cultivates a stronger relationship with the Earth and Cosmos.
It was really synchronous and beautiful to be teaching about reverence and relationship to Crystals on Earth Day and felt like a way to honor Terra and her gifts through a passion of mine I could share with others.
It was awesome to see everyone so excited and engaged, especially since this is the next conscious generation coming up. Grateful that there are groups like the Chapman Health and Healing Club that are spreading the light and bringing a variety of topics to their members, to expose them to what’s out there so they can be aware and also ignite their own passions and resonance that will be the guiding posts of their journeys.
I’ve also taken a bunch of my Crystal elixirs over the course of the last few days to align me with the Crystals’ essence for sharing about them. So to say the energy has been on high is an understatement.
I loved seeing the students at Chapman experimenting with the elixirs. They were all very in tune with their bodies and senses, and immediately shared the shifts and feelings from the elixirs and the differences from one to another that they tried.
It’s always amazing to experience these powerful Crystal beings and just as with Reiki, simply talking about them gets things vibed and heated up. Hope I don’t blow out anything after this. ;)
I’ll be taking a break from the Crystal teaching until end of May when I’ll be co-teaching a workshop in Tampa, FL, although am still taking my elixirs and always have my Crystal friends around me daily for companionship and support.
Crystals are constantly moving in and out of my life, depending on the shifts I make, which are supported by their love, wisdom, and energetic presence. It’s been lovely to see Crystals move on again, and some of the students feeling so drawn to bringing them into their lives.
I was so touched by this one particular young woman who immediately was drawn to one of the heart-shaped Crystals I brought to the talk and literally was moved to almost tears by the comfort she felt when she held her.
She said, “I’ve never felt this with any stone or Crystal. I haven’t felt peace like this since I moved to this city. I love my new best friend.”
I knew that Crystal was meant to be with her, and got the message on why I had felt called to bring it at the last minute.
I love that.
And I’ve experienced much the same in my own life with them.
Yesterday, after the talk another young woman asked me how I got into Crystals and I realized there was really no “one thing” that took place, but it was a culmination of all things in my life when I was embracing the next level of my spiritual journey that brought many things into my experience all at once – like opening a floodgate and it just all poured in, as if it had just been waiting for me to be ready.
Since, Crystals have been one of the supportive ways I’ve worked with to completely shift my life experience. And for that I’m grateful and I’d like to shout out an extra special thank you in honor of them today.
How have Crystals been a part of your life?
Sound and music has been a main expression and source of support throughout my life. On the creative front, I’m involved in a personal project that will be a journey of sound from the musical seed of my soul, but have been infusing musical resonance as a form of healing and wholeness in my sessions and in sacred gatherings/events over the last couple of years.
Sound has been an important facet of me since I was a baby in this life, and carried forth from “past” lives. In this life it has always been powerfully transformative and is something I have infused into my healing work and paintings, that sings to people through my embedding it in the process. But I have used musical sound for major shifts, including a profound experience in Egypt on my first of two trips there in this life, which I’ll touch briefly upon in a bit.
It seems to be surfacing more now, however, in direct ways, and as always, I flow with where I’m guided.
I’ve expressed in article posts about mantra chanting already and how powerful that can be, but I love what my dear Faery sister Laura Bruno shared in a past post of hers about sound:
“Release energy by making a joyful noise unto the heavens. Watch what words you’re repeating through song, since music intensifies the power of words. Once you find sacred chants or affirmative songs you love, let ‘er rip. You’ll strengthen your throat and heart chakras, enabling you to align your words with your heart. You’ll also increase your intuition and spiritual awareness, joy (2nd chakra), confidence, and feel more grounded in your body through the physical act of singing instead of just mentally mumbling the words.”
So express whatever wants to come through you song-fully, as long as it is from the joy of your heart, and you will experience the power inherent in loving sound. It is life-altering, as sound is a Universal resonance that transcends.
Just remember to release judgments, to the best of your ability, while you are going through everything and to be gentle right now with all that you are processing and experiencing…and S L O W down a bit to breathe and be able to really focus on refocusing. The extra external stimulation with so much already going on in and around you can be enough to blow you out and keep you away from the core transformative things trying to get your attention – AND away from being in your heart.
Surrounding yourself with only things that mirror the new that you are focused on creating, and releasing all of the old toxicity in your life will be of great benefit.
And whichever supportive tools and experiences you feel drawn to – for me that is Reiki, my Crystal friends and animal companions, tons of Earth nature time (as Laura called it in her blog: “Get Dirty” time), doing only what feels right in my heart, retreat, and definitely a LOT of music and vibrationally moving it through my body and chakras in the form of lyrical resonance – utilize these well.
I like to think of the Universe as a giant symphony divinely orchestrated by the harmonic collective field of unique sound and energy frequencies expressed through each light instrument embodiment within all of creation.
I find energy and sound healing to be most powerful and now-aligned, as sound is vibration, which is a function of energy – what the Universe IS. Everything is frequency and because of this, sound has the ability, like Reiki, sacred symbolism, colors, mantras, toning, chanting, music…to vibrationally resonate on a deep cellular level to shift things within your karmic stored patterns, which affects your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states. It has the power to affect all levels of creation, while connecting you to Higher Consciousness.
We each have a personal home frequency, and since your body is a vibrational system, sound and energy can powerfully support you to return to that natural state of relaxed beingness. Sound healing is an ancient practice, like energy healing, that acts as a therapeutic tool, accompanied by intent, to support you back into your natural frequency balance, by freeing blockages and returning you to your higher vibrational state. When all parts of you are harmoniously vibrating, this restores well-being on all levels, as well as your ability to function as the empowered and bright light that you are.
“Music is to the nervous system what nutrients are to the body,” – Joshua Leeds
When you experience music or sound through someone channeling it or as your own personal experience of channeling, you become attuned to the energetical vibrational frequencies that are innately embedded within and this experience can be powerfully activating and ingniting in terms of healing, inspiration, empowerment, and overall wholeness of being.
The sound vibrations through voice and music put you into a temporary and suspended hypnotic state that induces a release from limitations and supports you in moving forward with liberation. They will also create a general experience of heightened well-being, sense of calm and peace, and overall harmony that helps to see you through the challenges of life in more balanced ways.
Everything in nature has a vibrational component and frequency and any form of sound in the Universe IS vibrational energy. Since our bodies are mainly composed of water, this makes them superb sound resonators and demonstrates why we react so efficiently and effectively to sound and vibration, just as Dr. Masaru Emoto brought forth through his research and book “The Hidden Messages in Water.” Sound actually travels fives times more efficiently through water than through air. It’s no wonder why cellular shifts within the body are so responsive when experiencing sound directed into it.
The whole Universe, according to ancient Indian texts and some of the latest works in quantum physics, was created through cosmic sound energy. This, followed by heat and light energy, then produces life forms, illustrating how intimately connected life energy, or prana, is to sound vibrations.
There is the possibility that the Universe began with One Sound, rather than The Big Bang…and if this in fact is the case, as mystics denote the basic sound of the Universe by Om for instance (considered the ultimate state of spiritual being that is heard at the highest peek of silence where all else disappears), then it is sound that emerges when life force energy or the very energy of life itself is experienced.
And each of us have our own signature song…or sound.
“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” -Maya Angelou
Sound or vibrational sound energy has been around and utilized since Ancient Times – its healing power secrets well known for its sacred alchemy in all areas of life and to connect to the divine as keys and codes activated through sound and able to create purely from a particular resonant tone. Ancients used sound for many things including healing on every level, as a form of communication through singing, inducing meditational trances, for rejuvenation at cellular levels, activating seeds for abundant crops, improving relations, as protection, to communicate with plants and animals, telepathically for all levels of communication, to create sacred spaces, to contact cosmic beings, to open gateways and portals, travel through time and space, etc.
Sound was held as the very essence of the life force and it was part of every tapestry of creation, stories, and sacred rituals – in many ways quite shamanic and magickal, as well as potent because it bypasses your mental faculties and defenses, as well as psychic blocks, so that you’re engaged vibrationally through emotion and spirit at a very core level that aids returning to natural harmony and wholeness.
Keening was a form of vocal lament (Gaelic – Irish/Scottish) by women mourning where they would invoke physical movements like rocking, clapping, or kneeling along with a very deep, expressive organized sound to channel their grief or sorrow.
I actually experienced this come through me, as a soul remembrance relived, when I lost Nestor. I mirrored this “keening” when she screamed and took her last breath. A friend and my then husband both witnessed and heard this. I remember my friend remarking on how it reminded her of this keening and I remember talking to Laura right after and she said that my voice sounded musical, despite my deep grief.
I also remember the waking dreams at night I would have not long before this took place, where I clearly heard myself singing in Gaelic, as a form of healing and communicating with Nature, and actually was, as it was heard in present time by my then husband. I’ve also had a friend share that I’ve chanted in Mayan in my sleep. And in Egypt, as shared before, I activated a deeper part of my voice and personal song, which also took place all around this time period – the biggest shift experienced to date.
Although I won’t go into the whole story here I will share that it was in Egypt that I learned and experienced the direct results of utilizing sound from my own voice to heal myself and create a huge physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual shift within me, which actually assisted my first Kundalini awakening. I instantaneously shifted my vibration by musical sound I channeled through me, going from deathly ill, feverish heat, aches, shaking, hunching over in pain, and throbbing through and through (that came on overnight due to major energetic shifts and reawakening on a cellular level), to harmonious balance, peace, and lightness in seconds, continuing into rebirthed vibrancy the next morning. It was quite a profound experience and story, but I also then had the opportunity to join my vibrational resonance with the frequencies emitted from the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid, by channeling musical sound on my own through the top of the Pyramid and into the beyond.
One of the people there that day remarked:
“The sound that came from you, while you were in the sarcophagus of the King’s Chamber, is something I will never forget. I’m getting vibed right now. What came out of you was magical, mystical, angelic……. Words fail to pain the experience. I’m truly honored for the experience.” ~Michael, Arizona
Song and music was with me since a young child, always singing and my parents have tape recordings of me playing by myself, as I always did, singing away. And it’s always been a source of healing and empowerment into wholeness.
But it was my five years with Nestor, my beloved soul twin and rabbit in this life, that ignited sound in my life in deepening ways that integrated my soul Earth and Cosmic history with this.
Your throat is the bridge between the inner and outer world – the birth canal of you for inner/outer. It’s also the gateway between heart and mind.
I believe in making sound your own personal song, which will help you to find your voice, activate your DNA and chakras, and ignite the spark of life and creative joy within you.
When we tune in with our essence/innermost nature, we are also tuning in to the vibrations of the Universe and this creates expansion in terms of our identity beyond the limitations of ego-based definitions of self. Resonating at cellular levels allows the process of healing to take place. We can listen to our bodies and each chakra for vibrational alignments that are specific to each of us individually and that share our particular resonance mirrors that will activate the highest potentials within us.
I feel that the most powerful way to holistically integrate is through our very own body temples, utilizing our vehicles of life, and our individual voice. While tools and modalities outside of us are powerful to assist us, it is within us that lies the greatest power and when we remember, honor, embrace, and utilize what is within each of us innately, this will provide the potent key.
Some may chant, tone, sing, or simply allow what ever sound and movements wants through. The musical flow or lyrical resonance I personally enjoy and find powerful is something similar to what is referred to as immanence: an inherent divine presence/transcendent – without limits of possible experience or knowledge.
It may involve any of the above mentioned, but it becomes musical and tells a story, as well as is like multi-layered vocal journeys infused with resonant meaning and frequency. It’s an “experience” and is what I would think of as conscious channeling of energy through your individual creative self-expression center – ancient…cosmic…timeless.
It is not a comprehensible language, although at time might sound like ancient words or sounds that remind one of ancient or cosmic languages. It’s about releasing judgment and logic, to allow the sound frequency from feeling resonance to move through you without articulation of understanding. It is from the nature of your emotions and the super-intelligence of your soul, not the learned-intelligence of the mind.
Just as Nature’s tendency is harmony, our bodies also innately want to return to natural harmony when we are out of harmony. Illness manifests from disharmony within the body. Sound vibrations affect our emotional states and can tune our body parts just as you would tune your instrument to achieve optimal resonance and musical harmony. Sound helps us to achieve deep meditational states, slows our pulse, restores our breath, and permeates every cell with greater peace and normal rhythm.
The sound from your voice, which I believe is the most powerful tool for shifting your personal frequency, links your unique voice to a Universal network of vibrations that is harmonized like a Cosmic symphony and keeps you in natural rhythm with ALL.
When we come from a pure place with our “song” with all of our inner most self, we help to shift the frequency of ourselves and others into a match of that resonance. It’s the same with “holding the space,” as we say, or “being the example” in embodiment, of a certain vibration/frequency. This resonance produces a mirroring resonance.
Each of us is a vibrational being radiating frequencies that are like a collection of vibrations equaling a “song.” This song emanates to others and is received subconsciously, producing responses in reflection to those vibrations. This is why words are not needed to convey things when sent telepathically.
This is also why we resonate with certain vibrations and sounds that reinforce our vibrational song, and create a sense of well-being, as harmony is reflected. Everything and everyone has a song and each song is a part of the collective and boundless symphony of all creation.
I leave you with this story that comes from a traditional story passed on in Griot tradition. It is rewritten by Jane Maluka and Dan Millman, Author of Way of the Peaceful Warrior, reworked it for one of his newsletters in April 2005:
“When a woman in one African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes out into the wilderness with a few friends and together they pray and meditate until they hear the song of the child.
They recognize that every soul has its own vibration that expresses its unique flavor and purpose.
When the women attune to the song, they sing it out loud. Then they return to the tribe and teach it to everyone else.
And when children are born into the village, the community gathers and sings their song, one unique melody for each unique child.
Later, when children begin their education, the village gathers and chants each child’s song. They sing again when each child passes into the initiation of adulthood, and at the time of marriage.
Finally, when the soul is about to pass from this world, the family and friends gather at the bedside, as they did at birth, and they sing the person to the next life. In the African tribe there is one other occasion upon which the Villagers sing to the child: If at any time during a person’s life, he or she commits a crime or aberrant social act, that individual is called to stand in the center of a circle formed by all members of the tribe. And once again the villagers chant the child’s song.
The tribe recognizes that the proper correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment, but love and the remembrance of identity.
When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another. A friend is someone who knows your song and sings it to you when you have forgotten it.
Those who love you are not fooled by the mistakes you have made or the dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not.
When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song, and we shall sing it well.
You may feel a little wobbly at that moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home.”
An interesting little shift click took place this week that was beyond an individual experience, but truly spoke to something collective that is and has been happening.
It touches on a topic I expound upon a lot in my workshops, as it comes up often as a challenging one for most people and it’s that of money, creating your passion as your life’s work, energy exchanges, and helping to create a new paradigm that supports all the visions and ideals you have, have been working towards manifesting, and have invested your time learning about intellectually for the path of work that you are choosing.
So, this week I had to take a little time out of my work flow to focus on getting my taxes done. Yes, that usually dreaded thing that comes up for us all, and yet while I don’t believe in taxes, and don’t buy into the whole system, I also have a peaceful and playful way of approaching everything that doesn’t create a tug-o-war within me when engaging in things NOT me.
And in fact, I’ve also found a way to have gratitude for the sheer ability to be able to pay my taxes through what I choose to do as extension of my life’s work. And like everything else where I have a magick bubble around me that I journey in always through life, I simply play the “Fool” card and see the whole process as a game where I’m inputting puzzle pieces and codes that ultimately are supporting a new paradigm I’m helping into reality by my creating an equality to the work I do in solid compliment to the work others have deemed more valuable – until now.
A little background – I’ve worked quite hard at building the life I choose to have and to be able to do what I know I’m here to do. And that hasn’t come easy. I’ve held a variety of “regular” jobs in my past, including office jobs in the insurance and investment sectors of business, but ultimately through my life’s journey, came to know that I cannot deny who I am and what ultimately is the most natural and healthy expression for me to be channeling in this regard.
And although I was always being of service in all of my interesting positions and jobs I held, it wasn’t until I made peace with that and blessed it all without charge, that I was able to walk away and move into what for me was most personally satisfying.
That also took a lot of work and time to build and streamline into being, to get to a place where I could actually support myself and pay my bills with doing what I love and what simply IS ME.
And that didn’t come without running up against energetic struggles with conditioned patterning, beliefs, and fears I had instilled within me not just passed on by my parents, but by society, and the collective at large, past past and present life past.
I remember each time I quit my “regular” office jobs, how I was told back then by my parents that it would be the biggest mistake of my life. They, like many, came from the old-school way of thinking you should go about earning your money and what is and isn’t possible – you couldn’t possibly do what you love and make that work, nor were they going to try it because of this instilled fear.
However, I did A LOT of personal work before I left my very last “regular” office job, not only creating such a peaceful and beautifully supportive send-off from that job where they even hired me thereafter to do mural work for their lobby, but I also did NOT come up against my parents’ antagonistic and disapproving remarks. In fact, they were quite supportive and excited, due to the way I approached it all and my process with it. So, although they had some old beliefs and fears still, there was no negative reaction.
That said, it’s still been a journey on energetic levels to shift things at even deeper core levels, and not just for myself and them, but collectively, as I see that everything I/we do is so integrally important in shifting what takes place for ALL.
I’ve felt that until we’re able to shift things within the current framework structure, we can’t simply turn our back on it and think we can create something new and grounded in lasting foundation, as there’s still a core old foundation working behind the scenes.
I feel that we need to work to shift what is, by doing the underlying and deep work with it, and THEN we will see the new suddenly seem to magickally light up, but it’s not because of abandoning the old, but in cultivating it with transmutational alchemy.
So, we temporarily look like the Fool, while we play in the old framework, dancing our way through it and infusing our magick with each step to transform things in a way that will benefit the greater good and they don’t even have to know that it’s happening.
This all really fully came into deeper, brighter light for me this week while I was doing my taxes and upon completion when I was talking to my parents, whom have since all these years completely undergone their own shifts because of the way I’ve been doing this process behind the scenes.
They’ve had a chance to see me build a life and my life’s work into being something of value beyond the scope of simply paying the bills. And little by little, it has helped, especially my dad, to realize what IS possible, that I’m actually doing what I said I would, it’s not “pie in the sky” talk, and anyone/I/he could actually pursue their dreams if one so chose to.
But this week was a huge click that I felt ripple out collectively. I’ve been seeing and hearing this happen all around by others I know who also have been doing similar processes and brought their life’s work into recognized equality and value to all that has previously been deemed as such.
When I completed my taxes, I realized that I had actually hit a milestone. Although I’ve been making a living from my work and paying the bills, as they say, I didn’t realize until I did my taxes that I had actually surpassed income I’d ever made at so-called “regular” jobs my parents had once said I’d regret leaving, which until now had still been holding that title.
It was such a huge epiphany click in the moment, where symbolically and literally a “tipping of the scales” had taken place.
I’d seen it as this so far: the old paradigm of “jobs” and “work” used to tip the scales in perceived and actual value the collective held it as, and all other things like the creative arts, healing arts, spiritual pursuits, and anything others would have deemed “hobbies” rather than the actual life path passions they were, were invalidated and not held as equals in value.
Little by little, I’ve seen how we as a collective have been working at shifting that, slowly creating more balance and equality, as we all get back in touch with our innate gifts and essence, and channel that forth with more self love, validation, and courageous belief.
After all, these passionate pursuits had at one time actually been invaluable, but were cut down by shifts in consciousness.
That’s why I celebrate and support people putting any time they possibly can into supporting their gifts and passions, and believing in themselves, as this is very important in order to have this shift take place, not to mention creates greater essence wholeness within each individual that brings more well-being overall. And of course, I’ve been doing my part.
We’ve been bringing the things people want to deny, push aside, fear, or degrade, into the light, by shining our lights, and thus more and more we will create a balanced equality.
Unfortunately, right now that equates to demonstrating this under the current framework of our monetary structure, since that is what is collectively being embraced. And once it is equalized and fortified under this guise, it can then turn into a whole new paradigm where different frameworks can operate that utilize other forms of energy exchange, which money simply is one of.
So many people have paved the way to enable myself and others to be able to experience this now, and for them and all of the struggles, courage, and challenges they faced to support this into being, I am eternally grateful. I promise to continue to do my part in honor of your sacrifices and contributions, as well as in honor of doing only that which I know how to do – follow my truth.
And although others have already created their pieces of this energetic framework, it isn’t until I experience it firsthand for myself that I share about it, as I’d rather speak from having done than just knowing what is possible.
So, when in my own life I saw myself “tip the scales”, which actually created an energetic shift within the conversation I had with my parents and in general that I could feel, it was to me a sign that it IS happening and KNOW that it is a possibility for everyone who chooses to experience this.
The things that don’t fit into the mainstream structure are no longer energetically “alternative”, but rather are equal. They always have been in the eyes of the All That Is and in the inner recesses of our truth connected to that infinite wisdom, but we are continuing to experience that truth in the very fiber of our daily lives – NOT JUST in theory. And I feel this is going to continue in very large ways increasingly, as if so many before me/us, and now I and many others are experiencing this, that means it will soon become “mainstream” for many, many more – the ripple effect at its best.
I literally felt a click happen in that moment this week and in my talking to my parents. Just like the click that happened the day I finally was ready to quit my last “job”. And to say it was exciting is an understatement. I even heard the click in the resonance of my parents’ voices. A vibrational shift took place that shifted things to a new level that sounded and felt harmonious and there is a new dynamic in play within our family framework, my personal framework, and the collective framework that kicked in with all the others on this same trajectory.
And that’s huge!
It’s not about being a millionaire, and I’m in no way what some may deem as “rich” monetarily, but what I and many others have achieved is truly a collective gift that I will continue to foster and nurture both in myself and others because I do believe this “shift” has hit the fan and will, as it has been, just continue to rapidly explode in interesting and amazing ways for everyone.
Today’s daily thought and affirmation from “Reflections in the Light” by Shakti Gawain:
Living in harmony with the universe
Although letting go of the world may seem difficult at times, it is well worth whatever it takes to make the transition into the new world.
