JANUARY 2022: Spiritual Remembrance

"The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be."  - Dali Lama

We often differentiate between "those who are on a spiritual path" and those who are not. The truth is that we are all walking this earth together and integrating the seen with the unseen worlds, learning and remembering how to be truly human, which is actually both spiritual and physical, whether we think we are on a spiritual path, or not. Challenges come to us all to integrate, either way.  It has been quite the journey for us all, whatever stage of the cycle we are experiencing. The difference here, is that when we are CONSCIOUSLY on a path of spiritual remembrance, we are actively and with intention invoking our own ability to recall things about ourselves, humanity and this creation that will unlock new vistas and unexplored, surprising aspects of our being that can unfold and create new dimensions of love and joy in our life... and allow us to evolve through the awareness of love.

"If I have to choose between the words Love and God, I will choose love; I will never forget about God, because those who know love will be bound to know God. But it is not vice versa; Those who think about God and philosophize about God may never know about love and will never know about God, either." - Osho

Those of us who have remembered and recalled more of the true nature of being human, will be asked to assist and be of service to those who are still awakening. Many lightworkers are now going to be asked to become loveworker, too. For no longer is it just about revealing light or truth to the world for the sake of anything other than to bring greater, deeper, more profound expressions of love to this planet. Yet, those of us who remember are challenged to provide support while still allowing others to experience and bring forth their own light, through the processes and experiences of their own life and the power of their inner wisdom. That is what keeps it all real and that is what brings love to the light... and heaven to earth.

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." - William James

Remembering our interconnectedness can't just happen when we are all getting along. Yet, it is true that we can break the circle of love and short-circuit our ability or desire to feel connected. That is very real. The way of the loveworker is to wield the Truth upon the Self, first and foremost. And first healing and holding the space for love to reveal itself within us.  Always asking, where is the love in this person, situation or experience. Where is love being blocked? How can we let more love in? Where is the love right now, without changing anything at all in this moment? This opens the way to unconditional love.

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Rumi

Unconditional Love, or Agape, is an actual spiritual substance. Many have only experienced it in consciousness fleetingly... but it is available freely and without question.... however, we must have the eyes to see it, the ears to hear it and the heart to channel it. Because true love is far from just being a feeling. In fact, we can truly love someone and not even like them very much or have difficulty being around them. This is a call for greater unconditional love to the self, as well as an opportunity to hollow a deeper channel for love. For we can only hold as much unconditional love for others as we can hold for ourselves! In holding space for the unloveable in others, we learn to love ourselves and vice versa.

"Every time negative beliefs come up, it is necessary to cancel them and insist on the truth." - Dr. David R. Hawkins

The new earth and the new age ushers in a time of the restoration of the soul, the magnetic feminine aspect of ourselves, that passionate synergy that unexplainably arises as a result of our appreciation of something or someone, as well as the electrical masculine which protects the sacred space. The ultimate union of love and light occurs when we remember our own divinity and we come together as kings and queens, royal servants of this creation. It is in this state of grace that we can create unimaginably, subtle, yet deeply profound inventions of love that bring magic, mystery, joy and abundance to every living thing in the universe.

This is God's journey. Let's make it a good one!

"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive."  - Eleonora Duse

DECEMBER 2021: Divine Light

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.” - Albus Dumbledore 

In theology, divine light (also called divine radiance or divine refulgence) is an aspect of divine presence, specifically an unknown and mysterious ability of God, angels, or human beings to express themselves communicatively through spiritual means, rather than through physical capacities. Spiritual light or divine light is often used as a metaphor for the Truth, as in seeing the light. However, spiritual light is a very real phenomenon that has a profound effect upon the earth and her inhabitants on many levels of being. 

“Whoever lives the truth comes into the light.” (John 3:21) 

Bringing in more divine light is accomplished slowly and over time, as we remove layers of denial and awaken to ever deepening understanding of the true nature of our being. Truth is revealed, this allows enlightenment to occur.. meaning darkness and confusion are brought to order. This order, at first can feel a little austere, and a kind of emptiness can occur, especially if the segueway into our purpose is not quite in step with the dance of our new beginnings. Yet, this stage of enlightenment is not to be feared. There is a definitive point in time where we are claiming the truth of our free will and going to places of greater responsibility with our free will. 

At first when the full weight of that is felt, acknowledged and understood, it can press upon us and feel quite overwhelming. This is why the process of enlightenment, while in it's initial stages often entails a great deal of clearing and letting go of belief systems that do not serve free will, is ultimately leading us to the realization of our freedom to create our life, to live out our destiny in the highest, most ingenious ways we can imagine. Navigating in the emptiness of our own divine identity as it is coming to light is a time when our true selves are literally coming alive or coming online. It truly is an awakening and an unfolding of the great mystery within. 

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” ― Plato 

As we begin the process of unfolding, much like a flower that opens its petals to the sun, we continue to bring in more and more light. It becomes important for us to consciously work with light. We do this by continuing practices which help us to raise and maintain higher levels of awareness and mindfulness. some of that freedom we have earned includes the propensity to tell the truth.... regularly and even at cost to what was before. When this is faithfully done, we start to see the perfection of this existence in greater detail. This brings us into a deep appreciation for our life and for all life. This appreciation and gratitude becomes a way of being, and not just a list that we rustle up when we need a reminder to pull us out of the doldrums. 

Often we will hear teachers remind us of the power of our shadow and going into our own darkness. While these teachings are helpful for sure, ultimately if you look at darkness or chaos as a part of creation, or the void of creation to be more specific, then you will understand that journeying through a measure of darkness is a valid part of the process of creating our lives, and our divine identity. But just as the physical birth process and our time in the womb and passage through the birth canal is not the whole of our life experience, but in reality only the beginning, for our divinity is born through the passage through the valley of the shadow of darkness into the light in much the same way. Notice that it says the shadow of darkness. This could be interpreted as saying that when we are in the void or the unknown aspects of creation that if we are suffering, in pain or afraid that we may be in the shadow of darkness. As we ascribe our fears to this part of the creative process, it could quite possibly be reminding us that we are to bring light into the darkness in order to release the lie of the shadow. 

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”  ― Martin Luther King Jr 

Divine Light has the power to heal and empower our lives in ways that we may barely be able to comprehend. Lightworkers the world over are essentially truth workers, who by facing their own darkness, bravely shine the light and are willing to die the little ego deaths of negativity and distorted belief systems in order to be reborn into the light. This has a visceral effect on all life. For bringing in divine light is much more than a metaphor for the truth, though it is always brought forth through the vehicle of Truth. Spiritual Light is here for us to resource ourselves and remember ourselves in due course. It is a real and vital substance that we must learn how to summon and direct for the greater good of all. We must do this regularly and routinely in order to strengthen and awaken to the light of truth. Truth brings healing and redemption. Our task is to learn to trust in the process of creation. 

“The Light is more than some abstract, unknowable energy force. Light is Truth. If Light is truth, then darkness must be lies. Each and every lie we tell to ourselves and others casts the shadow of separation upon us. Every time even the most minor deception is revealed and the truth is made known we are re-united with the Light. So, Let there be Light. Those are the words by which you can create your own magnificent world.” - Renee Bledsoe

NOVEMBER 2021: Spiritual Alchemy

“The Great Work is a Spiritual Process. The One thing is the birth of your soul." Hermetica

Our human journey is a study in spiritual alchemy. Alchemy is the art and science of transformation, which follows a very specific and predictable set of protocols. Initially it was couched in secret, scientific encoded writings. However, many mystics have since revealed the code and applied it to the most powerful alchemical laboratory of all: the human being. As we evolve it is apparent that we are turning our base, instinctually driven nature into a fully free willed creator God... the pauper into the King or Queen... the lead of our mortal existence into the "gold" of our immortality... our body into our Soul.

“You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.” - C.S. Lewis

We are always changing, yet we haven't always understood, nor recognized our changes and have even feared change.  In the past, time had been slowed and attuned by the current state of human consciousness, sometimes not allowing us to see the cause of effects enough to truly link up the truth of cause and effect. This was so for many reasons, not the least of which was to give us the gift of time so that we could discern our existence with free will, and learn, discover and grow more into the fullness of our human potential, and our powers to manifest.

“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” - Oscar Wilde

Time is key here as we delve into the alchemical marriage of our body/mind/soul and spirit. For it is time that draws us upward on the vertical axis of the path and subjects us to the process of spiritual alchemy. Yet, as we become more fifth dimensional, stepping outside of linear time and space, it becomes imperative to engage with time in a new way. We must have a way to routinely take stock of ourselves as we become increasingly non-linear and more holistic. The medicine wheel with it's ouroborous effect is the complete package that allows us to not only take stock, but setup milemarkers to chart and direct our own progression.

Most of our growth has come through a painful rending of old belief systems, which also tend to show up as a letting go of relationships, careers and other physical manifestations, as well as, dreams, ideas, fantasies and karmic contracts. Without knowledge of spiritual alchemy, these things might appear to make no sense, and serve to further dig us into the roles of victim and perpetrator. But once this most predictable process is realized and we see that we are literally experiencing a kind of spiritual procedure through our own crisis, we have a chance of lifting ourselves into another mode and way of being. While understanding this process from a more cosmic and spiritual evolutionary perspective might not make it immediately less painful, it can relieve any undue suffering from our misunderstanding, internalizing or confusion. Much like a midwife's job is to bring comfort to the birthing mother, by truly understanding spiritual alchemy we can comfort and prepare ourselves for what is to come.

"Where there is fear, there is power. Even fear is a friend. Transcend."  - Cora Flora

It is through the process of alchemy that our soul emerges and integrates the body and the spirit in the flesh. It is how we become like God. Yet, as we let go of our notions of who and what God is... and turn more toward our own inward journey and allowing that transformation to outwardly manifest, we come to truly know the complexities of the creator, through the gift of our Higher Self... our Holy Guardian Angel. As we entertain greater levels of freedom, we find that we are the captain of our destiny. This can seem like an overwhelming responsibility unless we are aware of the alchemical process by having a system which helps us to keep the lines of communication open between all our aspects. Containers such as meditation, medicine wheel  and Kabbalah helps us to do just that. Ultimately we do not need blind faith to proceed, for we can develop the spiritual eyes to see and the ears to hear the whisperings of our soul.

“Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see” - William Newton Clarke

We are evolving. Humanity has enough time into this process now, and the ability to communicate and compare notes, which is a part of that process itself. For as we observe ourselves and become more and more consciously aware of the depth of our own existence, we then can realize our own tempering into compassionate and loving beings of light, with great powers of healing and creativity which will allow us to fully step into our free will and choose the kind of world we will make real. We can choose heaven or hell. The power is within our hands.

“This is the ultimate end of man, to find the One which is in him; which is his truth, which is his soul; the key with which he opens the gate of the spiritual life, the heavenly kingdom.” - Rabindranath Tagore

Conversely enough, there is a divine plan however, that was agreed upon by our GodSelf to elevate humanity back to a state of re-unification in God Consciousness. The truth is that we cannot fail. Because just because we do not remember our GodSelf and our master purpose, doesn't mean that our soul doesn't remember. And this process of alchemy will birth our soul, one way or another. And when the soul comes stalking, the things we need to experience to awaken will happen.

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” - Henry Ward Beecher

It is our work here to awaken the GodSelf within through love and awareness, and proactive midwiving of the soul's emergence. This is why our power to communicate is so important. Messengers are being sent to tell us that it does not have to be difficult. Great sacrifices have been made to ensure that each wave of souls successively has an easier birth. So we must take this great gift, awaken now and receive the grace of our existence in this moment. Let love live through us, allow our souls to emerge and heaven on earth to end the war between fear and love.

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” - Joseph Campbell

OCTOBER 2021: As Above, So Below

"Those who choose their destiny will be the heroes, the pioneers, the midwives and the mothers of the future." - Alberto Villoldo

Spiritual emergence is the process by which we are coming home to our true nature. Some of us can feel the new earth values coming alive in our hearts. This is ascension with feet on the ground. Humanity as a whole stands at the brink of the momentous realization that heaven on earth may be possible, even as we realize that we still have work to do. We are also coming to realize what that is and how it looks, not as innocent children, but as breathing, living, maturing human beings who understand the potential and power of this creation.

As that power is realized, and our esteem and knowledge of self grows, not only do we learn about ourselves, we learn about the of everyone and everything. We see and experience the interconnectedness of all that is, all the time. We read energy and we see the shape of all things in the spirit. And we know that we have the power in our own hands and hearts and minds to get back into the garden.

"The new myths, the stories that we will teach our children and endow them with the will to live epic lives, must be forged, lived and told by us."- Alberto Villoldo

Most of us have a sense, even if we have never truly experienced it or only in fleeting moments, the power of the potential of this creation and that a very intrinsic part of this is the re-unification of the Creator. We have a longing for true community, but we have forgotten how to be with our tribe. To many, getting along with others without a tremendous amount of negativity and hurtfulness being present has been something only wished for, but never fully realized. But that was before so many people had shifted into the return back to the garden. The garden is quite simply the consciousness that believes and can clearly hold the vision that paradise can be restored to the earth. And that means that the potential for everything on this planet to live and grow in harmony has never been more possible.

We have an inkling of what this earth can evolve into, if we will stop for a moment and truly assess the situation outside of our own wounds and the trauma and drama that most of us have endured on this journey to build the world into the state that it is now. Some who can only see, yet, in segments may have quite a different view and find it not so easy to be hopeful. But those of us who can see and who know the power of our own mind and intentions, and this is important... also know that this universe is unfolding according to a divine plan... and this is even more important... that the intelligence that created this universe is part of us and we are a part of it... then everything is by our own design... not as mere individuals, but as emerging souls who represent the body of God, who have come here to claim our free will to create paradise and come into the perfection of our wholeness.

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”  ― Steve Jobs

It is in our coming together and opening up to the magnetizing force of Love that we can cross the abyss of our own fears and realize that heaven on earth can begin to manifest for us right here and now. We flow between being of service to ourselves, being of service to others and then eventually when our soul stalkings bring us to the altar of our hearts and what we truly love in our unique expression, we find that what we love serves the world and our joy is the worlds joy and what heals us, heals each other. It is in this space that we come to understand the power of our individuality and our own soul.

Achieving universal higher-state frequency is greatly accelerated as one more easily recognizes and claims their universe citizenship. - Crystal Tones

It is important to approach ourselves holistically, and especially since time is compressing due to our ability to communicate. The energy of time is much denser and can now be used as the tool it was intended to be like never before. While it is true that clock time and the apparent limitations that it can impose seems limiting, time has given us the ability to determine what is truly precious and worthy of our focus, attention and devotion. So, it is here in this space that we stand with these new eyes, taking the gift of time to help us get clear on what we love... and it is through what we love that our soul emerges!

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi

True tribal community is where paradise is found. The memory of paradise is kept under the guardianship of our Native American Grandfathers and Grandmothers, the wisdomkeepers, who remind us that when we each know who we are, and we find our joy, then we can take our true place of honor in the community and bring glory and honor to our family, our community and to this creation. Soul's purpose expressed in beauty and creativity and joy is how we are in service to the whole, and is how we meet in tribal community. The power of ritual and ceremony in communion with our geographical tribe is what gives us the ability to be strong enough within our own ranks to truly bless the world. No longer reacting and surviving, we create our lives out of love and honor.

It is time for change, time to allow our wings to spread and to allow our soul's expression to take flight. It is in the very act of flight, our reaching out for and our movement toward what we love that draws it to us. As above, so below... Let this be...Paradise found... created. It's time to GO LIVE!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead

SEPTEMBER 2021: Soul Life

"The mind, this globe of awareness, is a starry universe that when you push off with your foot, a thousand new roads become clear, as you yourself do at dawn, sailing through the light." ~Rumi

Sunday Talks with Rev. Renee Bledsoe
September 05 - Soul Life

September 26 - Spiritual Light

Chances are, if you are reading this, if you are here and interested in the Light, you are a modern mystic, a seeker of truths, sacred insights and deep magic. Maybe you're even a wisdomkeeper yourself! 

It didn't used to be "safe" to own any of that. In fact, it used to be quite detrimental to one's health to be entertaining such an intimate relationship with the divine. But the world is fast becoming a different place. The tipping point has been reached and now the correction has begun.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”  ― Carl Sagan

We are at a very delicate stage of our human evolutionary development, both as a whole and as individuals. We have enough consciousness now and enough layers of denial removed to realize the extent of what humanity has been through.

Most of us have processed gallons of grief, boatloads of anger and gigawatts of rage. Some of us have done so much clearing that we are starting to have past life recollections and visions on a regular basis. 

Some of us are developing the new skills that will soon be coming online for everyone such as increased psychism, heightened empathic senses, and mediumship including clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience. This will bring us to yet a whole new set of issues to be dealt with.

"Not just beautiful, though--the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me.”  ― Haruki Murakami

One of the most wonderful and powerful gifts that are coming to more and more people is the power to channel their spiritual guides, which include ascended masters, ancestors, animal spirits and angels, in addition to our Higher Selves and our own soul! When we begin to take this communication seriously everything changes. 

These guides and guardians exist to help us. When we don't call on them, or take them seriously we are denying ourselves greater, more conscious access to the deep magic. For it is these beings who can safely guide us through the dimensional gateways to higher consciousness and help us anchor it with meaning into our lives.

“The stars in the night shone above her. The stars deep within shone inside her. Melding and lighting the darkness, the holiness danced within. ” ~Terri St. Cloud.

As all of these strange new human qualities emerge, we need a great deal of support. It is important to receive that support so that we can help each other stay grounded in our ascension process. After all, we're not leaving the planet, we are shifting and changing, just as Gaia is shifting and changing. We are connected and that has never been more apparent. 

It's time to let your own radiant soul have authority over your life. It's time to trust these parts of yourself that have been long hidden. It's a great mystery how the soul emerges and it is a process to be respected and revered. New earth is taking hold and it's now time to live your Soul Life.

Soul Life Affirmations
I am awakening to the fullness of my soul.
I accept the beauty of my journey.
My story is woven into the fabric of life.
I walk this earth in a sacred manner.
I let my light shine.
I help others to shine their light.
What I love will help and heal the world.
The universe is watching and waiting for me to fully engage in life!
When I am joyfully creating, I bring the vibration of joy to all.
My gratitude and appreciation brings a glow to my heart.
I look for creative ways to express my gratitude.
My love is my art.
Time stands still when I am creating from my heart.
I have the courage to try new things.
I do what I think I cannot do.
I face my life with positivity and excitement.
I embrace the unknown and open to the Great Mystery.
I am in awe at the miracles that unfold in my life when I trust.
I allow love to live through me.
When I surrender to my soul, I come alive!

JULY 2021: Opening to Dharma

“You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.”  ― Amy Carmichael

A Bodhisattva is a being who has endured the path of suffering, has processed their karma and is in full realization of their darma. That is to say, now they are free to do their life's work which entails "going back" and helping others to attain that same freedom. They have transcended the need for death and rebirth because they have come to know themselves and consequently others so well, that there is nothing left to "die" to. In other words, they have come full circle within themselves. The illusion of physical reality has been put in its place and the power of the Higher Self has been fully integrated into the body. For the Bodhisattva, what is occurring on the physical level is very real, but it is not the end of the story.

The Bodhisattva knows that everything is energy, the power of the mind and the purpose of suffering.
Therefore the Bodhisattva's master purpose is to relieve the "needless" suffering of the world. This is done by becoming the embodiment or the "antidote" to a certain type of suffering, which arises as a result of the sufferer being locked into the mindset that physical reality is all there is. The Bodhisattva is well aware of and can work with non-local reality to hold the space for the suffering to move forward. The further along the Bodhisattva gets in grounding their energies into the physical, the more people they can assist to heal.

Opening to the experience of Bodhisattva is a very personal and powerful one on the path to healing, empowerment and enlightenment. You may think it is just for some. But let me assure you that this archetype is dead center on the path to freedom. So I'd like to show some practical ways to encourage and activate the energies of the Bodhisattva into your life.

My healing modality utilizes the power of archetypal energies, Light, color and visualization. One exercise to bring in the power of the Bodhisattva and to further develop and integrate those characteristics into our life is balancing, integrating, and interweaving the energies located at the Sacral Chakra. The sacral chakra holds in it's structure the gateway for us to express our creativity, passion and sexuality by activating our life force in readiness for manifestation. This is more or less where the Kundalini energy coalesces before it takes physical form, as is outpictured by the womb of a woman being the container for the growing human embryo.

There are two master archetypes that are working with us to teach us lessons and in layman's terms "running programs" within our psyche and energy body in the sacral chakra. They are the Martyr and the Emperor/Empress (or another name might be the Hedonist). These two powerful forces are neither good, nor bad in their own right. They just are. And yet, certainly one or the other can take dominance and help us spin our life out of control. The key lies in integrating these energies together. It might seem like an impossible task, considering how they seem to be polar opposites. It is important to understand that what will be created out of the merging of these energies within us, is yet a third thing: The Bodhisattva.

Imagine a venn diagram and you can see how this occurs. (A venn diagram is two circles which are drawn partially overlapping that creates a vertical eye shape where the two circles overlap.) This is exactly how these energies work together. Where we want to stay is in the space of that eye, where the two meet. This is where the Bodhisattva energies become active in our life. Sometimes we are moving into that space without consciousness. The purpose of this teaching is to help you move and stay in that space more often, ultimately operating your entire life from that middle path with full consciousness, focus and will.

The Bodhisattva has been there and done can't play a player. It is very difficult to pull the wool over the eyes of someone who has admitted to the worst in their own self and has faced and continues to face their own fears and darkness. The Bodhisattva holds a great deal of light for this very reason; they are always shining the light of truth upon themselves. This release of their own suffering is what has made room in their aura and in their soul to hold these powerful energies. And it is in this way that they work with the archetype of martyr or the wounded healer. Yet, the wounded healer can be very dysfunctional all on their own. The wounded healer can help a great many people heal, but it is often at a great price and that is that this occurs sometimes through coyote medicine and they themselves are keeping their own woundedness in the dark by covering it with helping others.

The opposing force to the martyr is the emperor/empress or hedonist. The hedonist loves life, enjoys pleasure and makes sure that they are well taken care of, especially on the physical level. As you can imagine, the hedonist is a prime candidate for acting out addictions and aggression, while the martyr is the one who represses and "acts in", meaning most of their transgressions are committed against themselves.

Hopefully you can see how these two archetype could benefit by joining forces. The bottom line is that the martyr, who is willing to die for their cause needs to be balanced by the hedonist, who is willing to live for their cause. It is difficult to give what you do not have or know that you have. Therefore it is imperative in the development of the Bodhisattva that they begin to receive in order to share. This is where the power of the hedonist, put in check by the martyr can allow this new creature to emerge within: The Bodhisattva.

This is the middle way, the middle path and is a vital component to becoming a healthy altruist. These archetypes are very, very powerful. Working with an archetype is like downloading a program that bypasses sensory input. This is working energetically and on a soul level. Even if you don't understand, your soul or your psyche will.

A powerful method to integrate these energies is to do chakra balancing and healing work, concentrating especially at the sacral, root and solar plexis. Envision the color red at your feet up to your groin, now see the color yellow at your navel, allow these two color to merge at the womb area (below the navel) and see the color orange emerge. On your left side envision the martyr - even call to mind someone in real life or from history that you associate with this, and on your right side envision an emperor or empress. See each character in all their regalia. Allow these energies to permeate your mind. Now see them coming together in your womb area, and inside that color orange see them coming together and becoming one being. This is your Bodhisattva. Take this being and allow it to become as large as your physical body. See yourself heart to heart, face to face. Step into this being and allow yourself to feel the immense, wisdom, devotion, compassion and divine love as you mingle your energies.

You have now drawn the divine matrix for the Bodhisattva to emerge in your life. This will open the gates of glory in your life. The irony is that the word glory will take on a whole new meaning. The glory will be for the great work. The glory will be that you understand that you belong to the world and the world belongs to you. There is no separation and so there is no sacrifice. The giving and the receiving are inextricably combined. Abundance will flow and you will create or become a part of a powerful legacy. When the Bodhisattva, this royalty shows up in your life, you will be at a place where your loss of innocence, all you have been through will be coming full circle and your life force will be activated in a way that you can't possibly now imagine. The beauty of it all will be revealed and you will see the undeviating justice at work in the world as you fully claim your personal power for the highest good of us all.

May you walk in beauty. May you walk in peace. May you be overflowing with love and compassion as you create, integrate and embody your art, your work, your masterpiece in this world. They key is to feel like an empress and think like a martyr and you will be guided onto the middle path every time. This is the becoming of the Bodhisattva.
