Well, my drive back west has certainly been interesting. The trip has been an activation for me in so many ways and at so many levels. Trusting my gut feelings has been a huge blessing. I decided to take route 70 west since I had stopped to visit my nephew and great nephew in Dayton, Ohio. Route 70 goes through St. Louis and I knew it was important symbolically for me to go through the gateway arch. Walking under the arch felt like entering a gateway to another dimension, even the tramcars inside the arch looked like mini spaceships.
While I was in St. Louis, I was strongly guided to visit the butterfly house. I watched butterflies as they hatched from their chrysalis. I guess I wanted some more metamorphosis! As I watched the butterflies make their way out into the world, I thought, “Rebirth isn’t pretty.” Think about what a new chick looks like when it first comes out of the shell, or any new born for that matter. It is tiring work breaking out of our shells. Rebirth is usually messy…and magical. Walking through the greenhouse filled with all different varieties and colors of butterflies was transformational in itself. The only way I can describe my experience is that it was the closest thing I have experienced on earth that reminds me of heaven. Like a rainbow after the rain, beauty replaces the not so pretty rebirth.
When I entered Denver, my gut told me something wasn’t right. The next day, in Colorado Springs, my car broke down. As I reached the parking lot of Cave of the Winds, steam poured out from under my hood. It was a steep climb to the parking lot, reaching what seemed to be close to the elevation of nearby Pikes Peak. I had the car serviced and I still didn’t feel right about it. When I got back to the hotel later that day, I checked under the hood again. There were some new areas where the coolant had leaked, so I took it in to be checked again. There was a crack in the neck of the radiator, which meant that the radiator would have to be replaced. It couldn’t have happened at a better time and location during my travels. I am always taken care of. I was in town and not on a secluded stretch of road, and the repair shop was within walking distance of my hotel. Even so, my fear around not enough money came up when I found out the new radiator would cost hundreds of dollars. I had been told by at least four people that I need not worry about my abundance. It is coming and my work will support me. After all, I reached the peak, so to speak, and was overflowing, with coolant anyway. Humm, maybe this is a good omen and it’s days like this that make believing in my coming abundance a little more challenging. Most of the time I trust and know that the universe supports me and “most of the time” is not good enough. So, my higher self called in another experience to facilitate releasing more fear around money and to trust 100% of the time. After all, isn’t that what a master does?
As the metaphysical principle goes, “As without, so within.” My motor vehicle (without) had broken down, and now my physical vehicle, my body (within), goes through its own “breakdown.” My internal world of microorganisms and cells are moving into another level of homeostasis, which on the outside appears as a cold. It is the breakdown before the breakthrough, as a friend of mine used to say.
So many of us now are testing our level of trust by calling to ourselves our greatest fears. One of my greatest fears has been around being homeless. So, here I am on the road without a physical home. Interestingly, it feels okay, even right, to be without a traditional home base for now. As more of my fear around money gets released, I remember what I wrote in my book, In the Key of Life, An Activational Journey to the Soul, “Your security is directly proportional to your faith.”
During the holidays, we are reminded of two of our greatest emotional states: gratitude and faith. I have plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and every day. As for Christmas, yes, the time of the Christed frequencies is upon me. Time to act as the master that I am with complete faith. After all, I passed through the gateway, went to the peak, and now I am overflowing! Joy to the world!
