We are definitely moving forward to a new year. I would not dare to try to make a prediction for the coming year. I was responding to a post on Facebook and this magic sentence typed through my fingers.
“The world outside seems smaller when you grow from within”. This is certainly a time to grow bigger within to help you withdraw some of your attention away from the true madness.
I was looking for a file in November, and I came across an old Transmutation News with the perfect message to end our year on. Here is what I wrote:
Transmutation News October 2017
We continue to hold all of life in our hearts who are being impacted by storms, fires, and earthquakes. We continue to see all in their divine strength having the tools to navigate the changes. And to all of life that died in these catastrophic events we thank you for gracing the Earth with your presence and wish you a smooth and graceful journey home.
Remember one of the keys of our work is not trying to change the weather and join the ranks of humans who feel they can control Mother Nature. Instead, we need to perform our spiritual work and live a life of honor and respect for all of life. And then using the principle of reciprocity the Earth will respond in kind.
In September, during a session of my teleconferencing course on the Shift Network, I taught how to merge with a helping spirit to see the world out of the eyes of spirit instead of through the eyes of ego. As a demonstration of how to merge with a helping spirit, I brought through the Goddess Isis. I had asked Isis to speak to the group about the topic of suffering. For it seems that so many friends are students have lost hope, feel stuck in gazing upon so much suffering and poor behavior by humans towards each other and all of life. Practitioners of a variety of spiritual practices are losing hope and focus.
I felt that the message Isis shared was a powerful one, and I wanted to share it with all of you in case it speaks to you and touches you on some level. I am sharing only the core of her message:
“There are an abundance of planets and dimensions where spirits incarnate to learn and evolve.
Here on Earth, you were born to experience love, light, and joy, But the lesson was to first experience suffering and then to be able to reach beyond that dimension where inside of you (not outside of you) there is an inner sense of love and joy. Actually, joy is not the correct vibration for in reality it is bliss that your spirit feels.
In your world, teachers, including your own, encourage you to open your heart to the spirit of love.
But this teaching is not correct on the level of heart that you are being asked to connect with.
For the focus has been on your physical heart which is simply part of your ego. And so many of you are experiencing and seeing suffering which on an evolutionally level is expanding your sense of compassion. It takes you so deep into your humanness. But you are still trapped in the energy, vibration, and frequency of suffering and that is the energy you are feeding in the world. And by carrying the energy of suffering so many people are becoming ill.
You are now literally and metaphorically being cracked open to the deepest place within where all the knowledge and wisdom is waiting for you to learn from as you touch deeper into your humanness.
Behind your physical heart is a spiritual heart. You do not have to travel that deeply within to connect with it. It is talked about by many gurus, mystics, and spiritual teachers.
And this spiritual heart – one with Source and the joy, bliss, and unconditional love for all of life and creation knows no suffering. It knows bliss, it knows unconditional love, but has no experience of suffering on this Earth.
In the Land of Dreams, I see millions of egos dreaming the illusion you are seeing as it is being created again and again on Earth.
Shift out of this Land of Dreams to where evolved spiritual beings are dreaming joy and love into the world.
You are caught and trapped in your ego. Transcend into a dimensional reality situated beyond your ego to your spiritual heart which is only experiencing eternal joy, bliss, unconditional love, and the light of Source.
You are in a new time and new evolution on Earth. Drop your current role in the play of life. Step into the life of an awakened spiritual being. You keep trying to raise your vibration and frequency when you need to work from a higher vibration and frequency.
I hold you in my arms and say you do have more choices than you know. You can shift to a higher level of consciousness.”
This month listen to some shamanic music or meditative music or spend some time in nature. Imagine traveling right behind your physical heart to your spiritual heart. It is the place where divine love, light, and bliss emanate from. Bring your burdens to your spiritual heart and experience how quickly they are transmuted and transformed into light.
Perform your transfiguration work and radiate light from your spiritual heart. Be a presence of love as your heart emanates pure and non- personal unconditional love.
In past issues of the Transmutation News, I have shared the exercise of traveling to the Land of Dreams as I wrote about it in my book Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life.
You can perform a journey or meditation and ask to be taken to the Land of Dreams where an evolved spiritual community of people from all over the world are focusing their daydreams only on experiencing the most positive, beautiful, and awe inspired dreams for the planet. Take your place among this circle of dreamers and do your work.
The winter solstice arrives December 21 with lots more teachings and opportunities to grow from within.
On the solstice, go out to a park or a favorite piece of land. Open up all your senses and take in the beauty of nature. Feel your love for life, the exquisite nature beings we share the Earth with, and with Gaia herself.
As you lie down on the earth imagine your heartbeat connecting with your home which is billions of years old. Take that feeling deep into your body. When I do this, I cannot even wrap my mind around the depth of this ancient connection.
Feel the wind or gentle breeze around you. As the wind kisses your cheek feel the depth of your relationship with the living being we call Air, which is the first life form on this earth. And this being which is billions of years old stopped by to kiss your check or play with your hair.
If you are by a body of water dip your feet or hands into and imagine connecting to the primordial sea. Notice if this ancient being which is also billions of years old has a message for you. If you are not by water, you can do this as a shamanic journey or a meditation.
And then absorb the power of the sun, the moon, the stars- think about how long they have been shining on all of life. And now they are shining on you. Feel the passion of the ancient fire burning deep inside Mother Earth. Is your inner fire burning to meet the ancientness of this powerful element?
Really sink into the timeless reality we live in. We are inhabiting Earth for such a short amount of time.
First really feel the power of your relationship, the love, and support of these ancient beings. It is really beyond anything we can grasp mentally if you
really allow yourself to open up your cellular awareness and feel your connection.
Now reflect on why you are here. You are here for such a tiny amount of time. What do you want to do with this time on Earth? And reflect on one simple life change you can make to lighten your footprint on Gaia.
Feel love for all of life, forgive yourself for anything that needs to be forgiven, and honor your ancient connections with the elements as well as honoring your ancestors and the ancient ones who lived here. All the phases of life we are observing now have all been experienced many times before in Earth’s history. Imagine the stories the ancient ones can tell you. Ask them for a simple lifestyle change you can make that will lead to positive changes over time.
This is the greatest gift you can give Gaia. And as you are willing to embrace the love of the elements and ancient ones you gift yourself and all of life.
Wishing you a beautiful solstice into winter or summer!
The full moon is December 29. This is our sacred time of coming together as a large community to flood the collective with light and love for that is how
unwanted energies are removed. This is not the time to sit down in the dark. We must keep moving forward.
Stand up and drum, rattle, dance, and sing. Travel within to your inner starlight and shine like the brightest star in the sky.
If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please read Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage.
As I wrote last month, I will continue to write The Transmutation News in the format we have now. And the columns are so generously translated into many languages.
To add to the offering each month I will prerecord either a journey for us to do together or a guided ceremony. Sylvia Edwards has agreed to record the
offerings on Zoom and a link will be posted.
After time goes by, I will invite teachers listed on www.shamanicteachers.com to record an offering. Their work is brilliant, and I want to introduce them to you. So at some point we will rotate. But I will do most of the recordings.
To be clear there will be one recorded journey or ceremony per month.
Then the exciting news is Sylvia and I started a new Facebook page just for our global circle. The Facebook page name is Shaman’s Are Gardeners of Energy. If you have been reading the column you know this became my favorite teaching The Ancient Ones shared with me.
If you want to join, click on this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/991720834662313/.
There is a question to join. The answer is Transfiguration.
This Facebook group is only open to people on my email list who have been in this circle.
The focus of this new Facebook page Shaman’s Are Gardeners of Energy is to flood the collective and Nature with reverence, prayer, unconditional love, and light. Light is the highest frequency we can work with.
If your post does not reflect a positive attitude, honor, and reverence it will be removed. What will happen to our circle if we immerse ourselves in the same consciousness we want to live? Do you want to get lost in the noise or experience another choice; another way to live our lives?
I am very excited that we have a format to do some powerful work together and share it!
And as we are cycling into the end of the year, I want to thank Sylvia Edwards for her continuous help with helping me get the work into the world! She is
truly a gift to this planet. Sylvia always has a way of staying positive, inspirational, and in a sacred space.
Please join me in thanking Sylvia and all our translators for their generous offering. There is so much time and effort that goes into the translations.
Let’s hold them in love and light.
