A couple of years ago my husband Woods and I were interviewed for a film titled “The Invocation”. A movie director in Los Angeles is determined to be in service to the planet by making movies that will raise consciousness.
For “The Invocation” he traveled around the world interviewing political and religious leaders, spiritual teachers, and other people he met in his travels. He interviewed people of all ages and races.
The interviews were asking people how they felt about having an ongoing relationship with God, divinity, and oneness can create peace on the planet. Emmanuel, the director, really did a brilliant job. and I think the film is wonderful and has a powerful message.
Sharon Stone narrates the film, which has been done for quite awhile now. And the film has been accepted into the Santa Fe Film Festival, which is the first week in December. The film will probably be accepted into some of the international film festivals too.
For those of you who are local to the Santa Fe, NM area if you would like to see the film when it is shown the first week of December, please visit www.santafefilmfestival.com.
I know the director was nervous that in waiting so long to show the film it would become out of date. But I think the timing is perfect and people are now ready to hear the message of the film.
More and more people are shifting to the consciousness of the importance of working spiritually to create change as has been the focus of the Transmutation News.
In November my husband Woods and I taught our first workshop titled Working in Community to Thrive in Changing Times. And I know many of you were interested in the workshop but could not travel to Santa Fe at this time.
So I wanted to talk about a few of the practices that we shared that you can work with during the winter.
Life is calling for all of us to tap into our divine potential and to experience ourselves as part of the web of life and not separate from it. And it is also time for the global community to stand strong together. The future of our planet depends on this for we are creating the world we live in. And as you have read in my previous writings I feel in every cell of my being that as we gather our energies together as a global community all change is positive. And the more people who work together spiritually the change keeps multiplying on an exponential level. But we must tap into and live in a unified field of oneness. We must move from a “me” model into an “us” model.
The Medicine for the Earth work incorporates the elements of using intention, union, harmony, love, concentration, focus, and imagination to create all possibilities together.
Florence Shinn back in the early to mid 1900’s taught: “Creation comes through us not to us.”
Krishnamurti, the great East Indian sage wrote: “There is a drum; it gives out a tone. When the skin is tightly stretched at the right tension, you strike it, and it gives out the right tone, which you may recognize. The drum is empty, in right tension, is as your own mind can be. When there is right attention and you ask the right question, then it gives the right answer. The answer may be in terms of the word, the recognizable, but that which comes out of that emptiness is, surely, creation. The thing that is created out of knowledge is mechanical, but the thing which comes out of emptiness, out of the unknown, that is the state of creation.”
It is so important for us to understand that creation comes out of a place of stillness. And we must find a meditative practice that can bring us into that place.
Winter is such a wonderful and supportive time to go within and find the stillness that reflects back to the you the stillness of the earth from which creation bursts out in the spring.
In the August 2009 Transmutation News I shared with you a way to work with the elements to experience what your soul is calling for. You can use the same exercise to also connect with the elements to find a place of stillness. Here is what I had written in August:
Working with the elements in nature is a great way to move into what indigenous people call “deep listening”. Nature can move us into a trance state where our rational mind quiets down and we can listen to the deep guidance rising from within. This month try working with an element to find the stillness within that creation is born from.
Sitting by running water such as a river, stream, waterfall can help you be transported away from the ordinary allowing your inner wisdom to rise up. Watching the waves in the ocean creates a state of opening so you can listen to the messages of your soul.
Finding a place on the earth where you can look out into the distance can take you away from daily thoughts and allow inner guidance to be heard.
Sitting in the breezes or winds of summer – just listening – allowing your ordinary thoughts to fly away and be replaced by your inner voice can provide guidance for you right now.
Building a campfire in a campground and gazing into the fire is an old way of moving into a deep trance where your own spirit can fill you with guidance needed to create your next steps in life. Or watching the flame of a candle can do the same.
I would also like to suggest that you reread the March 2009 and April 2009 Transmutation News where I wrote about the importance of working with the principles of surrender and letting go.
You can continue to work with an affirmation such as, “I release my life to my spirit/divine will and I ask that the next step be shown to me.”
You can also work with releasing a burden, pain, or block to the divine within.
Over the year we have worked with aligning our thoughts and words with our goals for what we want to experience in our personal life and for the planet. For our thoughts and words are the invisible spiritual energies from within that create the world we live in.
It can be difficult for some of us to keep the practice up of aligning our thoughts and words so that our train of thought leads us to where we want to go. But unless we do this we will not see the changes we are dreaming about. For the dream manifests from our thoughts and words that are within us.
This is where setting an intention and using concentration and focus are essential to maintain the state of consciousness needed.
You might put a pebble in your pocket and throughout the day as you feel the pebble ask yourself, “What am I thinking about right now?” And replace any thoughts that need to be replaced.
Another aspect to work with and focus on is to acknowledge your past hurts, betrayals, and disappointments. Acknowledge what happened in your life and also be willing to let go of the past so it is not burdening you and keeping you from moving forward and creating a new world for yourself and all of life.
I work with this by imagining myself painting over with white paint scenes and conversations that I keep looping over and over again that tie me to my past. As I keep whiting out the scenes and conversations overtime I find they no longer have any energy and no longer keep me tied to the past that didn’t work in my life and frees me to “recraft” new dreams.
And part of this practice is blessing all the people who I felt betrayed me, disappointed me, or I am angry at. This does not mean I rationalize their behavior. It means I recognize that they have been teachers for me and I recognize that they are divine beings playing out a role in my life and the life of the planet. This also means blessing yourself and forgiving yourself when you feel you have not acted correctly with others.
Living a life of honor and respect means blessing what you love and all that you are grateful for. It is also means blessing your challenges for providing the growth and evolution to get you to this point.
To add to this continue to walk around in awe and wonder of all the beauty that life offers you and then you will experience beauty and joy all around you.
These are some practices for you to take into the winter months.
To fully create exponential energy we must connect with the unified field of energy of our global community.
To celebrate the winter solstice on December 21 let’s project onto our global community and to all living beings on the earth perfect health, joy, abundance, harmony, equality, peace, light, and love. For all humans beings project and the world will always project back to our projections.
Replace your negative projections with positive projections for our global community and for all life on earth. Really focus and concentrate on this throughout the day.
Remember that the universe will meet our level of excitement and match that level of excitement. The more as a global community we can feel excitement for the unlimited possibilities we can create together the more the universe partners with us to fuel the power of our dreams.
Make focusing on your positive projections a daily practice as well as experiencing great excitement for all we can create together.
I do want to acknowledge that those of you reading the Transmutation News in the Southern Hemisphere will be celebrating summer. And this is also a great time to put into the practice all I have written about this month.
This month we have two full moons. There is a rare blue moon on December 31 this year. It promises a rare lunar and calendar alignment for the start of this new decade.
For this month we have two opportunities to really join our lights together to continue to feed, nurture, and weave the web of light.
Many of us who practice spiritual work tend to expand out and forget that we must also root our spiritual light into the earth and ourselves. Trees are great teachers of this. For the branches connect with the sky and the roots run deep in the earth. The trunk of the tree bridges the power of the sky and the earth.
As we join our light together on the two full moons December 2 and December 31 let’s really focus on creating deep roots filled with spiritual light within the earth. And let’s connect our roots together. And experience our light going forth into the world through our branches. And walk each day shining forth your own spiritual light like trees. For through our hearts and presence in the world we are the bridge between the earth and the sky.
And let’s continue our monthly healing of projecting divine light into our circle as is written up in Creating A Human Web of Light on the Transmutation News page of this site.
Time seems to be moving so quickly. I find it quite amazing that we are coming to the end of another year. Let us join our hearts together in love to acknowledge, honor, and give great gratitude for those who help to donate time and energy to make the Transmutation News available to readers around the world.
