Re-membering Your First Love

When I mention your first love what comes to mind?  Now, I’m not talking about the fleeting memory of a former lover or your first kiss.  In reality you are your first love.  You came into this world knowing who you are, feeling your connection to God, simply opening to a new adventure of life on earth.

So what happened?  Like everyone else on the planet you created ways to navigate life in this three dimensional world: ways to fit in, to be accepted, and to feel OK inside.  At the same time, you may have been taught that loving yourself is egotistical.

Do you sometimes long for a greater connection to the source of love, the God presence within you?  Perhaps you have a yearning for greater clarity on your purpose in life and on your innate gifts seeking to be expressed.

The full richness of love cannot be received or shared until there is a re-membering that you are your first love.  So many people feel depleted because they give, give, give.  When you begin to nurture yourself as your first love, you are able to give from the overflow.

How can you begin to live in the blessing of knowing you are OK no matter what seems to be happening in your life?  The simple practice of honoring yourself is the key.  It’s easy to honor someone you hold in high esteem, such as Mahatma Gandhi or Mother Teresa.  When you honor there is an inner recognition by the person honored that “I am real”.  When honoring yourself you realize that you can be seen, heard and recognized.  It starts with you feeling, at your core, that you are real.  You are here for a reason and you can live on purpose.

Practice of Honor:
Take a few deep breaths allowing all thoughts to be lifted as you attention drops into the heart.  With the energy of your heart, not with words or with the thoughts of your mind, allow your heart muscle to communicate, “I choose to honor myself now.”  With your choice, you merely allow your heart to open for the energy of honor to emerge.  Each person has a different experience.  For me it feels as if a part of me comes out in front of me and is bowing in honor to me.  As this happens I merely open to accept the energy.  On a few occasions I have actually felt a part of myself coming forth to kiss my own feet!  Your experience may be dramatic or very subtle.  Have no expectation, simply allow.  Stay present with it, accepting the energy of honor until it subsides.

Honor is a powerful energy.  It includes appreciation, respect and recognition, plus a unique frequency of love emerges through the honor.  It is healing.  In fact, it is the antidote for judgment held in the cells.  As a daily practice, you will begin to know at a deep level that you can live in your true nature.  Each day, honor yourself and then your life just as it is.  How often have you navigated life based on the limitations of past experiences, to the worry or fear of what may happen in the future?  Through honor life moves into harmony with now.  Once you see yourself and your current situation is seen as real, new possibilities can emerge.

Are you ready to discover new rich facets of love?  This love is the joy that flows as you reignite  the child-like wonder that is real within you.  Your journey begins with re-membering you are your first love.

What if there was no time?

adventureHave you ever wondered what your life would be like if there were no measurement of time?  What would you be left with but the present moment. Instruments such as clocks and calendars would serve no purpose.  There would be no need to worry about the future or long for the past.  It wouldn’t matter if you were going too fast or too slow.  Predictions such as ‘life expectancy’ would have no meaning.  Any concern about “not enough time” would be gone.  Procrastination would serve no purpose.

How freeing is this concept!  Only NOW!  What a glorious moment this is.  What infinite possibilities it holds.  It is expressing as creative energy flowing, thunder before a burst of rain, life as I feel each breath nourish my body.  It is just what it is…nothing more…nothing less.  Knowing that this moment is followed by yet another just as full of wonder, allows me to move from moment to moment.  With no time, my moments are not limited.  I have no need to hold on to this moment or any moment.  It is with this freedom that the full expression of who we are comes through.

It is in the NOW the full expression of each feeling is possible; we connect with strangers and loved ones in a deeper way.  What a joy it is to play in the moment…to be filled with adventure as a child exploring the possibilities.

The Etchilhampton Crop Circle, July 2011, offers an opportunity to step out of life as we now know it into new possibilities beyond current knowledge.  In order to read crop circles, the images are horizontally flipped.  The actual imprint is facing the earth.

The image within the hexagon contains a code to stimulate our DNA for living both in the life we now know and for creating the capacity for new emerging frequencies.   The thick circle surrounding the hexagon in this crop circle represents our three dimensional way of living in the container of what is currently known.  Through a clear personal choice to be blessed by opening to life beyond current knowledge and by merging with the image through meditation, the lines outside the circle seem to  cause the hexagon to begin to spin in a counter clockwise manner.  My experience of this felt like a clearing of the cells in the brain.  This flow of energy was in the frequency of forgiveness.  It was as if the frequency held in the code within the hexagon was clearing old patterns, old judgments and the limitations created through the life journey.

The spin of the symbol activates a shift in the cellular memory.  As it spins, the triangles, as they point down, are clearing life experiences held in cellular memory that have been in the unconscious underneath  a sense that “I am not OK”.  At the same time the upward points of the triangles represent the living light, providing complete honor for the new frequencies of love that are now emerging, yet are not now fully known in this three dimensional world.

This Crop Circle is simply asking us to come to be blessed by this symbol.  We are being asked to respect life that is continually emerging.  The integration of the counter clockwise spin of the pattern in this (horizontally flipped) image, not only clears old cellular programming of the past, it brings real joy, while living in a world that is shifting out of old systems that no longer work.  New ways of living in an uncertain world are emerging as individuals become clear and are willing to move forward.

Note:  My core purpose on earth is to be a living prototype for creating life beyond current knowledge, so I may be an instrument for the global shift, providing clarity, attunement and knowledge for each one to discover and live fully activated in their life purpose.

Over 20 years ago I was gifted the ability to communicate with multiple dimensions through a universal energetic sign language.  Recently I was taken to translate messages of crop circles.  Many of the crop circles are communicating a love intelligence to support us in moving through the cosmic shifts that are now occurring.

Remember When? to What Now?

Ahhh, those fond memories.  I have been spending several days cleaning, clearing, and cleansing.  It began when, in a meditation, I was shown to clear everything from our home that was not supporting movement forward.  Yikes!

With agreement from my partner, I started with our office, first the files and then the storage supply closet.  I was to leave half of the closet empty for what is to come, the gifts not yet revealed.  It is amazing how much paper had accumulated!  Old files that needed to be saved were moved to a separate storage area out of the office and the remainder carried out in the garbage bags filled with pens that no longer write, old computer programs, etc.  Pictures on the wall shifted and crystals found their new home in the office.  With half of the closet almost empty in anticipation for what is to come, the desk piles nearly gone and the corners cleaned, the office came alive!

In 1995 I went through similar process, when I was guided to go through my home, piece by piece, even paper by paper.  That time I was shown to clear by asking a simple question of each item:  Is it precious or essential?  I kept only those items that were precious or essential.  The essential items found a place in my home, i.e. scissors had one location so when I needed them I knew where to go.  The precious items were set aside.  All other items went into piles: to give to friends, to donate, to toss out.  At the end of each day I carried the bags out to the car to deliver to their new homes.

When I completed this process, I sat with the precious pile, which included gifts I had received, photos, drawings from my children, etc.  Looking at the gifts I realized that I had not properly appreciated the essence of many of the gifts, often the heart centered intent that came with it.  I spent time with each one opening my heart to the giver in gratitude, finally fully accepting the gift. With most of the gifts feeling complete after they had been properly accepted, the precious items, including the most precious photos went into two hat boxes for safe keeping.

It was over a year before the intent or should I say the gift, of the guidance became clear.  Within that year I was also guided to move to Colorado, given a specific location with quadrants of longitude and latitude, and my sister was diagnosed with lung cancer.  With my desire to support my sister and to also follow the powerful spiritual guidance to relocate, the gift of the earlier cleansing was time.  I would have never been able to be present for her and move if the home had not been cleared.

This time the direction for the clearing had yet another focus: to let go of the old and move forward into becoming a greater expression of me.  As I moved through the closets and drawers of my home what I had been holding on to became clear: old memorabilia, life patterns, habits and an old ways of being.  It became clear that it is now time for me, and for so many others, to clear the path for what is seeking to emerge through us.  Now is the time to dance forward with each step engaging the part of us that can only be revealed as we consciously choose to move into possibilities beyond what we have experienced or even know as possible.  In this process of clearing I found myself in forgiveness in one moment and then dancing in new possibilities the next!

What gifts have been revealed so far?  The actual process and the new insights revealed were the first gift.  Actively embracing this process shifted the energy in our home and activated and cleared a place within me creating a greater capacity to open to so much more creative expression now emerging.  The memories are still important and they can be held in the heart.  The clear message is to continue to move forward into the unknown for the blessings are discovered with each new step.

As I treasure the memories without holding on to what was, the path forward becomes more clear.  I can now shift from “Remember When?” to the child like anticipation of “What Now?”

 

 

Eyes Wide Open

How often do we live unconscious to the blessings that are available to us each moment?  As I write in this moment, I feel the blessing of knowledge flowing through me.  By simply honoring this now, I feel an opening… a clearing of my tendency to pull back, which has often allowed my ‘not now’ to become more real than my ‘yes now’.

The blind eye can keep us from fully experiencing the richness of life.  Take a breath, feel the oxygen enliven every cell.  Each breath is a gift.  The blessings now are real.

How do we live for the blessings?

1.  It is important that we love our current situation ‘as is’.  This acceptance opens the door for a clear path forward and new choices may become clear.

2.  Honor your life now.  Honor is a powerful energy.  When experienced with a deep heart-felt reverence, honor provides a rich sense of completion for the moment.

3.  Open to flow in gratitude for the gifts that are apparent and for those that are yet revealed.  This is an exercise in both giving gratitude and also energetically opening to receive the gifts.

4.  Open to receive the blessings by consciously choosing to own them in your body.  Open your heart allowing the blessings to flood into your body.  What a gift it is to feel the blessings flow.

I recall a time I was camping in the Sedona area with a friend and her 3 year old son.  My friend asked me to be with her son for awhile so she could meditate on Bell Rock.  He and I went for a walk.  Before long he was taken to a spot on the earth.  He called me over saying, “Feel this, it’s magic!”  I knelt down to touch the earth and asked him, “What is it?”   He looked up at me and replied, “It’s Looovvve!”

I got it!   My 3 year old teacher showed me that we too can live with eyes wide open, experiencing the blessings of each moment.

What Does it Mean to Slow Down?

How often do our old perceptions get in the way of love flowing freely?  Lately the concept of slowing down has been alive in my consciousness.  What old definitions of the term or the action of slowing down are keeping each of us from experiencing the fullness of life?

The concept of slowing down can seem like limiting the life flow.  A recent client is way ahead of the pack. When on a group hike, he is the one that is ahead of the group scouting the trail, exploring the possibilities.  In his daily life he is always a few days (if not longer) ahead, staging himself for the next adventure.  The message came to him to slow down.  Would slowing down mean losing momentum on his path? There was an unconscious sense that if he slowed down he would not be able to fully experience his life’s purpose.

To another client, slowing down was her pattern of pulling back in order to avoid living to her fullest potential for fear of loss or of being hurt.  These thought-forms held in the unconscious had ruled her life for years.  At one time in her life, she had been living with her potential activated in the world, but through a great loss, she had pulled back.  Now again ready to step into her full potential, the idea of slowing down triggered an instinct to go back into the hiding from which she had emerged.

These old stories held in the unconscious were blocking the growth of both individuals.  With each, we opened to feel into what Spirit meant by the guidance to slow down. We were taken into the moment.  Past perceptions were lifted.  Concerns for the future vanished.  In that moment we felt expansion in the eternal NOW.  Staying in the NOW even for a brief moment, we began to appreciate the many blessings that are often missed when forget to slow down.

Lost in unconscious patterns, our lives can be run by experiences of the past held in the unconscious or by our desire to live in the potential of the future.  We each have the opportunity to slow down, breathe, and open to the expansion that can be found in the NOW.   To slow down is to fully experience love each moment, each eternal NOW!
