There are many paradoxes that we all must live with. We live and function as the ego small “i” and also as we transfigure embrace the principle that we are source and are also the big “I”.
In this paradox we are facets of the creator and are unique as creative beings. At the same time we are part of an entire organism. Sometimes we get lost in the aspect that we are the only ones creating change in the world. When really it is the organism that we are part of that is changing. We feel responsible to make a change as independent from the organism we are merely part of. Go back to the metaphor that I have been using where we are fingers that think we are independent from the rest of the body.
Yes, we are all aspects of the creative forces of the universe and in this way we do create in the world. At the same time the organism we are a part of is evolving and part of our work is to surrender to the life force we are part of. This means that we are not always in control of the changes that are happening. The metaphor that I keep getting in my journeys is that we have to learn to surf the waves of transition and change. We have to understand that the organism we are all part of is changing and taking us as “fingers” along with the changes.
This does not mean that we should stop doing our creative work as facets of the creator. But this also means that we have to surrender to the process of evolution. This is part of the paradox we all need to live with right now.
In the February Transmutation News I wrote about Chase Carter’s music CDs. He sent me a sample of a new CD he is working on. The vibration on this CD is pretty high so I find myself getting transcendent information when I listen to it.
While I was listening to the CD I was looking at transmuting the energies of fear and jealousy. I received some very interesting information.
Fear and jealousy are part of our DNA code for survival of the fittest. As we act out of our animal nature there is the experience of competition for resources and the energies of jealousy as we have a drive for procreation.
As the organism we are part of is evolving the need for these behaviors is changing. We are part of an organism that is evolving to working with psychic powers such as clairvoyance and telepathy being the norm instead of being extraordinary powers. The organism is evolving to sharing resources instead of competing for resources. And procreation will not be the overriding force of life.
Our DNA code needs to change to embrace this new evolution. Many teachers are writing about how we have the ability to change our DNA code for healing the body. I see that we need to change our DNA code for this new evolution of consciousness where we are more in touch with our psychic powers and the energy of love and light. Most of us work towards experiencing love and light. The new evolution of consciousness is where this is a natural state.
The children coming in will naturally have this new evolution of consciousness coded in their DNA. We already see this with many children coming in only experiencing love and are clairvoyant and are telepaths. But we will see more of this.
Think about computers. The new computers you buy already have the upgrades installed. For those of us who are the older model we must install an upgrade.
In your meditations and journeys hold the intention of changing your DNA code to evolve to the new frequencies of the organism we are part of. We are all evolving together.
I do believe that those who can evolve with the new frequencies will survive and thrive in the coming times ahead.
As we are spirits embodied our bodies are the vessel for our spiritual work. As the frequencies on the planet keep raising we must strengthen our bodies to be able to contain these higher frequencies.
So please keep finding exercise programs and practices such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Chi Gong to support your body. And of course pay attention to the kind of diet that keeps you strong and healthy. We can’t do a spiritual bypass. Our bodies must be supported to keep being a strong container for our spirit.
On this note it is spring. Get outside and be in nature. Experience all the new growth and take in the beauty. This is the best exercise for our body, mind, and our spirit. For nature nurtures us on all levels.
Continue the practice of absorbing light from the sun, the food you eat, the water you drink and bathe in, and the air you breathe. Take in the light as you inhale and give it back as you exhale.
Keep doing your transfiguration practice to experience a state of radiance and oneness. But also try to meditate and connect with the physical organism that you are part of. Experience your connection and the growth that is happening. Experience the changes in the earth and the frequency. And most of all experience the abundance of life force.
On an ordinary reality note here are some announcements:
The Society for Shamanic Practitioners annual conference will be June 5-9 at Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California.
The conference presentations look incredible and I wish I could be there. But I will be teaching in Europe during this time. If you would like some information you can visit www.shamansociety.org or call 760-586-8252.
A student of mine turned me on to a healer from Iran who practices and teaches in Novato, California. His name is Behrooz Danadoost. From what we can tell he works with healing through the void. But I have not met him personally so I cannot say that with surety. It is just a suspicion. As I have been writing for years the void is the place before creation. It is a fertile place to manifest all things on an earthly plane including a healthy body.
He has a CD called “Meditation of Space”. He takes people on two guided visualizations in this CD. One meditation is called “The mother of creation” and is about 26 minutes. The other is “The only constant is space” and is about 41 minutes.
If you would like to learn more about Behrooz Danadoost and his work you can visit his website at www.healingclinic.org. You can also get information on how to order his CD at this website.
I also wanted to let you know about a new book out that I highly recommend. It is Intelligence in Nature by Jeremy Narby. You might remember Jeremy Narby as the author of The Cosmic Serpent.
In his new book he writes about his travels around the world to interview healers and scientific researchers to understand about the intelligence present in all forms of life.
Jeremy presents overwhelming evidence that independent intelligence is not unique to humanity alone. Bacteria, plants, animals, and other forms of nonhuman life display an uncanny penchant for self-deterministic decisions, patterns, and actions.
He not only uncovers an amazing wealth of information about the intelligent behavior in all living beings but shares with us how we can learn from nature's economy and knowingness in its own search for a saner and more sustainable way of life.
There are many things that I love about this book. I love the interviews with healers and researchers as they share their knowledge. I love the stories of the behavior of different life forms. I was entranced as Jeremy explained how plants make survival decisions as well as the stories of the amazing intelligence in slime mold.
The book is real readable and provides information that we can share with others to help bring back honor and respect for all life forms. I think Jeremy Narby made an amazing contribution which can raise consciousness for our need to respect all of life.
Another book you might want to check out is The Woman in the Shaman’s Body: Reclaiming the Feminine in Religion and Medicine. The book is written by Barbara Tedlock. She is an anthropologist and also practices shamanism. I did endorse this book and liked it. I think the title gives you a good idea what it is about.
One of my friends and students who has been reading The Transmutation News wrote me and asked me to keep writing the monthly column. She felt that some of my recent writings inferred that I might be done. I just want to assure all of you that I will continue to write The Transmutation News. I receive many letters how helpful it has been to keep the focus on our spiritual work in this time of change. And it is also healing for me to write this column and connect with all of you each month.
The full moon is May 23. Let’s continue to weave a radiant web of life within and throughout the earth. And as much as possible keep initiating others in your community into this practice.
