Bringing harmony to a changing world with Truth and LOVE. :-)

The Egrets says… February 14, 2013

2USA CA, San DiegoAs I walked up to the apartment yesterday, I notice an egret on the edge of the pond.  It was in an awkward looking pose.  It held that pose for almost a minute, then moved ever so slightly, then in a lightening fast movement, it’s beak went in and out the water, and returning to its standard walking position with a small fish (I think) that it then swallowed.  In Stephen Farmer’s Animal Spirit Guides (a book with over 200 animals, each with 3 sections, the first being messages of brought by witnessing, in person or in meditation, the animal, 2nd when to call on its energies, and 3rd what it means if that animal is one of your power animals), Egret’s 1st listed message is “Patience, patience, patience!  You’ll soon get your reward.”  This experience of viewing the egret in action helped me to understand this message fully.  This was patience and perseverance in action.

We can all learn from the egret.  Sometimes, one must wait for a time, sometimes in a funny looking/feeling pose, before momentary action produces a sought after reward.  Sometimes consistent effort must be applied for sometime before reward is gained.  So, why do we all seem to expect reward to be instantaneous?  We say we don’t, yet our actions speak otherwise.  Why do we give up when only a short period of effort does not produce?

Most “experts” will say this action/inaction is due to our social programming to seek instant gratification.  This rings true when taking TV, video games, fast food, microwaves, the internet, cell phones, cell phones with internet, pornography, cigarettes, and several other modern “conveniences” into account.  Yet, are we robots?  Are we no better than our phones which have been programmed too?  We are thinking, breathing, free will endowed human beings, who have will power and virtues that can overcome any situation, and programming.  We need to take charge of our personal power, and ACT LIKE IT.  It is time to learn from the egret and remember what patience, conscious effort, and perseverance, truly are.

Maybe its time to turn the TV off for a few months, or at least get rid of cable.  Maybe (not maybe, please do) its time to get rid of your microwave and remember that until 30 years ago, we used ovens and stoves to cook and reheat our food.   Maybe its time to get off Facebook, and make a phone call if you want to convey a message or see how someone is doing.  Better yet, spend time together.  Remember real human interaction?  It was proven years and years ago to be quite stimulating and necessary for proper development and mental/emotional well-being.  There are plenty of ways to get off the instant gratification train, yet they will all take CONSCIOUS EFFORT, WILL POWER and PATIENCE, and in turn, will be a great practice in cultivating a greater amount of those 3 things.

Best of all possible results, with consistent application and willingness to make changes, your life will be more satisfying.  Funny thing about instant gratification, it isn’t actually gratifying.  It is like scratching an itch that won’t go away.  Doing things that take effort and patience create lasting and satisfying results that leave one with a sense of confidence and accomplishment.  Which is more inspiring of these?  a) a person who just gets handed or stumbles upon a millions dollars, or b) the person that lives life, pays dues, shows courage and patience, and through intelligent effort achieves great abundance?  Exactly.  The later feels more real and relatable as well.  I’m not saying you have to sweat in coal mine, or toil away 60-80 hours a week.  (Like my grandpa always said, work smart, not hard)  I’m just saying that some part of it is going to take conscious effort, passion, persistence, patiences, compassion, love, and maybe even holding an awkward pose.

If you were handed $100 million tomorrow and told that to enjoy any of that for yourself, you had to help the world in every way you can, helping the world is going to take serious effort.  Sticking with it till results come about, will take serious patience.  You may not even see the  results in your life time, or immediate environment, so its going to take some FAITH too.  The money is the easy part, changing yourself and changing the world is where the real sweat comes in, where you truly prove your metal.  Even if you had to earn the $100 million through some form of work/business, it would still be the easy part.  This world/society is in need of some serious change/healing/growth/revamping/clean-up, and so are most of us.  And its not going to happen over night, or with one beach clean up Saturday.  This going to take a great deal of effort, and TIME, and the patience to wait while things progress and change.

Instant gratification, through its many outlets, is a big factor in what’s destroying the health and well being of individuals and the Earth alike.  Instant gratification will get us no where, just like your microwave dinner has been zapped of all the nutritional value by radiation, or watching Dr. Phil isn’t going to help your social anxiety.  Change and healing start within, and through conscious effort, patience, and persistence.  Am I starting to sound like a broken record?  I sure hope so, its called driving a point home.  Whether a human or the planet, the best, most needed, lasting healing, change, and growth will come through those 3 factors.  Betterment requires daily effort, standards that are adhered to, and constant drive.  It will take the knowledge that it will not happen overnight, or that the desired amount of progress may not be seen for months, or years.  It will take persistence and faith to keep going when attempts fail, recession happens, ego wins out for a moment, or things seem to be at a stand still.  Cast aside judgement, for it will only lead to suffering.  Yet, as the egret showed me, patience and conscious, continuous effort do pay off in full in a very satisfying way.

So, take the egret’s lesson, and start to apply it to your life.  Walk or bike to the store.  Send a card when you’re thinking of someone.  Meditate daily to relieve anxiety instead of popping a pill you really don’t need.  THROW AWAY YOUR MICROWAVE.  In fact, cut the cord off that sucker.  Plant rose bushes this spring so you have flowers to stop and smell in the future.  Watch a sunset, or a sunrise.  Look for ways to practice patience and conscious effort in all areas of life, and make all of life’s rewards taste, smell, appear, sound, and feel that much more sweet and satisfying.  Your soul, and the world will thank you.  Little by little the world will become a better place by the genuine energy we are all putting into our lives by what we do and experience, and through the deep understanding we will all achieve, and pass on to future generations about what it truly takes to create change and produce what truly matters within ourselves and on this planet.

Like the egret, and life on many occasions has shown me, patience and persistence are virtues that are beyond any value measure, and the conscious effort and will power it takes to cultivate and truly understand them makes gold look like nothing more than a cute, shiny metal.

 

A closing thought:
Imagine and contemplate – how much less trash there would be if we got rid of all fast food, fast casual, and to-go style eatery?  If there were no “disposable” eateries, containers, and such?  or if we stopped producing and buying single serving snacks, candies, and rinks sold at convenience stores?  Or got rid of the convenience stores too?  Was it really “convenient” with all the work its going to take to get rid of that trash when we finally decide to tackle that mountainous chore?  Next time you take your trash out, imagine what could be avoided with some bulk buys, reusable containers, and other conscious efforts?

On Step at a Time, pt.2 February 13, 2013

imagesGrowth and healing happen one step at a time.  This is not to say there can not be “spurts” and “break throughs”, yet those are usually preceded by a period of dormancy or even recession or decay.  So its either gradual steps, or dormancy/decay then burst/break through, which in actuality are “steps”.

Usually though, its one step at a time.  A seed is planted, then it sprouts, then leaves and upward growth.  Eventually flowers make their appearance, which are pollenated, and thus can create fruit.  While some plants will produce in a couple seasons time, most of these dying after one production or harvest season, other plants take 3 to 5 years to produce their first fruits, sometimes taking 7 to 10 years for their full potential to be reached.  Some of the best tasting and most nutritious fall into this category.

We must apply this same process and concept to life and its experiences.  The more effective, positive, and longest lasting changes, experiences, and healing will sometimes take long periods, even years, to bring about, and even more patience and perseverance to see the full benefits, potential, and lessons (possibly a whole lifetime).  This is why we must remain in FAITH and TRUST that everything is working out for the greatest good, and take life one step at a time.

When I had my soul retrieval and akashic records clearing done in October 2011, the healer saw a vision of an acorn planted, then growing into a mighty oak tree.  I understood the metaphor at the time, yet did not conceptualize the phases of growth (time elapsed) from acorn to mighty tree.  For an Oak to be considered to be considered “adult” it takes 15 to 20 years or more.  At an average of 2 feet of growth per year, that means about 40 years or more to reach the size of “mighty” tree the healer saw in her vision (full grown oaks are between 60-100 feet).

Thank goodness that humans have the potential to grow so much faster.  Yet, at this time, I am still a “sapling”, working on establishing deep roots, building trunk strength, growing upward and outward.  It will be a little longer before the first birds sing on my branches.  A bit longer before squirrels climb me to play.  A bit longer before I produce my first acorns.  Yet, I will eventually be that Mighty Oak.  I will enjoy each pahse of grwoth, each step on the path of healing, being present, being at peace with being the best me I can be.

 

A take on the 12-12-12 portal December 7, 2012

95cad529-9cf0-4192-a24f-55dcba6cb33b

So many people have been questioning about why certain events have not occurred yet.  That’s easy….time is not linear…it is all energetic and it has to do with experience.  We have currently been utilizing the time matrix that you are currently in to our benefit.  Allowing large waves of energies to come through during certain days which are the opening of the portals.  8-8-88, 9-9-99, 10-10-10, 11-11-11 and currently the upcoming 12-12-12.

 These portals and waves have been coming in in synchronostic means since we know that many of you will be gathered and hold significance to numbers.  You understand numerology and sacred numbers/geometry.  You see how all the pieces seem to fit together and how experiencing one allows you to flow into the next.  Supposidly 11-28-11 was supposed to be “The big day” not so….the 12-12-12 portal had not been activated yet.  How could that occur….ahhh but many thought that the 11-11-11 was the culmunation since it represented twin/flames and Universal Consciousness.  Yet that was not the ending.  There was still more yet to come.

 Patience is the biggest virtue that many of you can embody…that and not being attached to any thoughtform or preconceived idea that you already may have.  Change is always inevitable since creation is always occurring around you.  12-12-12  will usher in another large wave activating the next to last portal. The following day 12-13-12 is your New Moon in the sign of Saggitarius.  This will be a time of picking off the last few strands of the web. There are actually 13 (Portals/Gateways) of them…the last and final one will be opened and activated on 12-21-12 the last day of the cycle. Actually there are numerous others that you will experience inwardly but these are the major 13 that we shall show you…the others you can explore for yourselves.

 Since there is not technically a 13-13-13..though you do have 13 full moons so the inflow of energy will continue for 7 days until the full moon on the 28th in the sign of Cancer.  Be prepared to experience energy in ways that you have never experienced it before.  What to expect…most of it shall be internal…if your attempting to look at the world around you and see the changes you may just be disappointed.  This shall be an internal process.  Once you are opened up to this and the full experience is here…then and only then will you truly begin to see the major changes that we have all been praying for, for so long and joining together to create and manifest.  Patience, Understanding, Love and Trust are some of the qualities that will be developed fully during these transitions.

 Understanding being one of the keys for knowledge is not everything….one must be able to take their experiences…look at their lives…how they respond/react to events release and allow the full understanding of why certain things must occur.  Trust within yourself and within the True God/Goddess creator of your eternal spirit of which you experience your full divine unity and equaluty.  Times are changing…..but it may not be 100% as we so expect.  

Namaste!

October 21, 2012… Global Call For Manifestation October 21, 2012

 

In the dreaming of it, you are creating it. – Michael channeled by Ron Head May 31, 2012

Image

This morning we shall talk about your similarities and differences.  It would seem absurd to say that you are all exactly the same while no two of you are at all alike.  Yet that is a true statement.

No two persons, nor indeed creations in any form, have experienced exactly the same things during their journeys through existence.  And every experience has led you to draw conclusions about what you have perceived.  No two persons perceiving an event or thing experience it the same.  Every experience they have had in this lifetime, or any lifetime, colors what they see.  Every conclusion they have ever drawn about similar things comes to bear.  Every fear, every love, every pain, every comfort that has been experienced and related to similar circumstances will be compared instantly, consciously, or more likely unconsciously, to the situation, and instant conclusions will produce additional emotions and feelings.

As more and more of your being becomes conscious and aware, you may have more and more control of these things.  They do, nevertheless continue to happen.  We would say to you that this would describe a function and purpose of your existence.  You are Creation experiencing itself.

So it becomes easy to see that no two of you are alike.  Now let us discuss your nature as a living being.  Everything which is common to you will probably reveal more of your true nature.  Humans love their families and protect them from harm.  Humans all have dreams and desires.  Humans all want safety and comfort.  We can make the list as long as you like.  And we are sure that each of you, if so inclined, could produce examples which do not fit the mold.

Now, if you will, take a moment to imagine what our human would be like if all doubt, fear, and lack were removed from the perceived future.  Imagine that this is you.  How would your life change?  How would you change?  If you knew beyond doubt that you would never face hunger, nor lack for anything again, how would you react?  If you knew that your sons and daughters were assured of the same, what would life be like?  If we even told you that your life is soon to be exactly like that, would it change anything?

We have done it again, have we not?  We have caused you to dream of a world you could never have imagined before now.  That is one of our functions.  For in the dreaming of it, you are creating it.  As more and more of you dream of it in more detail and for longer periods of time, it becomes more possible, more believable, more real.

And now we have touched upon the nature of the sameness of all humans.  You are creators.  You are creating a new world and you are learning that you are doing so.  We are in awe at how quickly you are progressing.  It seems to you to be slow and painful.  It is not so.  It is the blink of an eye that has been foretold.

Once again we ask you to hold peace in your hearts and we will speak again tomorrow.

ImageWhen you were a child and asked your parent, “Am I growing?” and they said yes, you believed them. It is the same thing now. Just because you cannot see, hear, feel, touch or taste it does not mean it is not happening. If you ask Me, “Am I growing?” I can tell you yes, you are. Your Earth-plane existence is not always about experiencing, sometimes it is just knowing. ~ Creator
