Fallen Angel

Where am I? I look around and things appear familiar and yet nothing resonates with me. It is as if I have fallen from the sky and landed in 3D land. I'm dazed and confused, looking upward for the ship that must have made a terrible mistake. The door must have malfunctioned and I fell out and they just don't realize yet that I'm gone. I'm sure any minute they will be back to pick me up.

I wait. I wait. Nothing. No one.

Panic. Despair. Reality settles in slowly. I'm on earth in the physical world. This isn't what I thought ascension would look like. I didn't sign up for this! I want to go home. Now!

I was in deep depression and disillusionment for days until I realized I can't go home. I agreed to be a bridge and bring heaven to earth. Going home now is not in my contract. It is best to make friends with my "predicament" as soon as possible. Another level of surrender.

The density of the physical dimension was almost unbearable for me this past week. I had to remind myself to breathe and searched for a reason to keep going. What is life about if we don't have a purpose, a reason for being?

I searched my heart and again it reminded me that my reason for being is assisting others with their enlightenment. Now, I not only know how important it is to find and live my heart's desire, I feel it. I have intellectualized many spiritual principles and unless each of my cells acknowledge and feel them, I cannot move forward in my growth or my work. Every thought comes from the spiritual, through the mental and emotional layers to the physical where it can set up shop and produce tangible results. That is what this time is about: taking our dreams and creating them step by slow step in the physical.

I don't know what 2009 will bring for me. I do know that it will be unlike any year I have yet experienced in this life.

"So this is what it feels like to be in the world and not of the world," I say to myself. I slowly stand and brush off my wings as if they have always been a part of me. I know that with them come extra responsibilities. Responsibilities I am now prepared to carry out.

On Holiday

Before I started writing this blog about the holiday, I decided to reread the blog I wrote last December. For the most part, the words still ring true. This year, I will be physically back home in the house I used to own as well as spiritually home within myself. So it is with the current energies. It is time for us to connect heaven and earth and the only way we can do this is to ground our vision and work in the physical.

I recently returned from a short trip to Maryland to see my nephew graduate from Test Pilot School. I flew into Washington's Dulles airport. The airport has these "transporters," for lack of a better word, that take passengers from one terminal to another and literally dock to the terminal. It reminded me of something out of Star Wars. These transporters are a great analogy of where we are energetically right now. We left the higher realms and are now being transported back to earth to dock with the energies in this realm. While we are being "shuffled off to Buffalo" we are in no man's land. No wonder we feel like we are in limbo.

This in between place is not easy. I am so close to completing the first phase of my school of self-mastery that part of me wants to keep moving forward while another part says, "Not yet." I keep reminding myself to think of this time as though I am on holiday. After all, it is the holiday season and everyday is a holy-day filled with wonder, gratitude, and joy.

While we hang out in limbo land and wait to dock, I'll leave you with my thoughts from last Christmas. Enjoy the down time. Things will accelerate even more in 2009!

Home for Christmas (first posted 12/9/2008)

As I was driving this morning, the song "I'll Be Home for Christmas" was playing on the radio. Several people have asked me where I plan to spend Christmas. My answer has been, "I don't know." As soon as I heard the song this morning, I knew where I would be. I will be home this Christmas, perhaps for the first time - home within my heart, within the essence of my being. I will be home with my God Self.

I used to love Christmas. It was my favorite time of year. Ask anyone who knew me. I knew all of the words to most of the Christmas shows. Rudolph was my favorite. Before I left on my road trip, I sold or gave away most of my belongings which included my Christmas decorations. Guess my higher self knew what was coming.

It is interesting that this year Christmas feels out of place to me. When I look at my life, I see that I live Christmas every day. I celebrate each day: the joy of living in the moment, the wonder of nature, love for all of God's creation, compassion and forgiveness for my debtors, healing the "sick", and using my intuitive abilities to act as my star of Bethlehem to guide my way. Christmas, the time of Christ, of living as the God that I am, does not fall on one day a year. It is a way of life.

This year, I do not celebrate the birth of a man who showed us that we all are God incarnate. I celebrate my birth, or rather rebirth, of the God that I am. "These things and more shall you do", Jesus said. If he was able to heal the sick, help the blind see, and master his intuitive abilities, then so it is with all of us...and more.

When you listen to Christmas songs, I invite you to put your name in place of Jesus'. This is why he came - to show us all our divine nature. If we are made in the image and likeness of God, how can it be otherwise?

Joy to the world my God Self has come! I sleep in heavenly peace.

Inside Out

November was an interesting month. I remember this past summer having a conversation with a friend of mine how we both could not see anything or intuit the energy for our lives past October. For me, it was like November on was blank except when I got to February. In hindsight, I understand now why we did not see what was coming.

There was a palpable shift in mid November around the time of the start of the sixth day of the Mayan Calendar. It was as if we stepped through a doorway and the door closed behind us. It is clear that we cannot go back. Indeed, there is no going back. The past is just illusion for the universe is a perpetual forward motion machine.

A friend recently wrote in one of his blogs, what is old is new again. And so it is, even down to living in the house I once owned.
On 11/11, I officiated a rebirth ceremony for a group of people. Of course, I received an initiation as well. What is more interesting is that five years ago in November I performed my own rebirth ceremony. What does it look and feel like to renew and rebirth our lives?

The best way I can describe the energies of late is that it is like taking an old reversible coat and turning it inside out. The coat is not new and yet to you and others, it looks new. We have turned ourselves inside out and are now showing the beauty within. Like a Christmas present, we have finally removed all of the gift wrap and clear plastic wrapping around the gift itself. We now get to see the gift that each of us are and "present" it to the world. We have not changed our essence - who we really are. We merely shed our worn out clothes, removing them layer by layer, until we reached our core or heart essence.

So many are waking up now and asking who am I at my core and why am I here. To answer the calling of so many hearts, I will begin my school of self-mastery called Coeuressence in the spring of 2009. The school is based on my book, In the Key of Life, An Activational Journey to the Soul.

"Renew your own vision of who you think you are. Take the time to open your heart to yourself, look inside and see the divine spark that has been waiting to be fed." - excerpt from In the Key of Life, An Activational Journey to the Soul.
