January 2012: Seize the Day

Every man dies.  Not every man really lives.  ~Braveheart

We've come so far, we've endured so much. It's time. It's our time. It's time to start living... really living, really loving, really listening and really connecting. All of us on this human journey have paid a high price for the experiences that humanity as a whole has endured in the quest for the knowledge of good and evil. The data is in, the karma is clearing, the contracts have been completed and we stand at the brink of a massive re-entry into paradise. As we come out of stasis, awakening one by one to the full implications of this evolutionary journey we have been on, descending and ascending the tree of life, we now have perspective unlike ever before about where we have been, what we have been up to and where we are now headed.

Many prophecies speak of the "end times" or "end of time", which might only mean that we are no longer constrained by time, and that our consciousness has expanded so that we understand how to easily and quickly traverse alternate realities at will, thereby transcending time. Yet, that only gives us the ability to more wisely use clock time as a means to connect in the fourth dimension, with fifth dimensional consciousness and higher and experience our unique creations and expressions of love.

The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time in between, a moment of indeterminate time in which something special happens. In rhetoric kairos is "a passing instant when an opening appears which must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved. We now have the ability to pierce the veils, to experience the light in these small moments. The power of the light is so potent and powerful that when we access these tiny shifts through sacred space, we can tap into our own divinity and the grace of the creator and perform outright miracles of manifestation, creation, healing and empowerment!

Yes, we are up for change, but we are not without the means to create something entirely new and filled with light and love beyond imagining. We're making room for full frontal contact with beauty, joy, peace, love, creativity, cooperation, unification and abundance in ways we have only dreampt of. Beware... magic is afoot...

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.  ~Annie Dillard

December 2011: True North

Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love. – Rumi

What do you love? And who do you love? When are you the most present in your life? What experiences bring you joy and put you in flow? How often do your encounter this in your day to day life? These are all important questions to ask ourselves. For as we do, we find our True North. True North is where we live... as in what makes us come alive, feel energized, inspired and blissful.

On the medicine wheel, the cardinal direction of North is the aspect of the earth and physical manifestation, our body and the actions that we take. It is in these actions that we truly stand in our power and operate from our True North as we walk the earth walk. As we come to know ourselves better, we come to understand the entire creation. As we gain understanding through the wisdom of the earth, we align all the wills to create our life through our unique purpose and passion, not simply from passing fancy or addiction.

During the Winter Solstice and Christmas season we give birth to the seeds of radiant light within our being. There isn't a better time to consciously plant the seeds of our most cherished desires into our heart for safe keeping, as more clarity and new intentions reveal themselves. The ability to tap into angelic forces, ascended masters and beings of light are very strong at this time and they are all awaiting to be called upon.

It's time to receive the wisdom of your Higher Self. The suffering is at an end and the New Earth holds the seeds of much beauty. Find your passion and you'll find where True North lives within you.

Your “true north” cannot be redirected by external pressures.  ~ Bill George
