Death of the Icon

As soon as I heard of the death of Michael Jackson, I knew it was symbolically huge. What did Michael Jackson represent to the mass consciousness? He was an icon. The world viewed him as a superstar, bigger than life, exceptionally talented, and one who was unafraid of showing the world who he really was.

His death represents the death of the icon. One definition for icon is a representation of some sacred personage. We looked up to him and other icons as being "more" than we are: more talented, more successful, more powerful, etc. We have given our power away long enough. Our power is not outside of ourselves. Just look in the mirror and you will see the physical representation of your sacred personage. You, too, are a god or goddess incarnate. The Source of All moves through each of us equally. All we need do is to awaken to this truth and take back our God-given power. This is clearly a doorway for us to awaken to who we truly are.

The word icon exists in our vocabulary because the notion of a deity being outside of ourselves was planted in mass consciousness. We have worshiped stones, symbols, and beings because we were told we were less than. Somewhere along the way, something was lost in the translation and transcription of Jesus' words - You are gods and goddesses. This and more shall you do.

When I looked at the word "icon" I noticed that it can be separated into "I" and "con". Con is an adverb meaning against and it is also a verb meaning to learn, study, peruse, or examine carefully. One could look at the meaning of icon and say I am against it or we could look at it as "I can" instead. We could also think of it as "I am learning, studying, and examining who I really am.

It is clearly time to extract the word icon from mass consciousness and replace it with "I can" and "I am that. I am."

Equal and Opposite Reaction

Dear Friends of the Light,

I know many of us are weary and ask how much longer can we endure more of the same. We have listened to our inner knowing, our God Self, and faithfully carried out the orders from mission control. Sometimes these directives meant leaving home, family, friends, possessions, and professions. We made friends instead with the dark nights of the soul. Most importantly, we opened our hearts - the master key that opens all doors.

Many of us are now remembering who we truly are. This is necessary in order for us to stand fully in our power. For true power comes from living the truth of who you are. Before the pendulum can swing back the other way so we can find our new balance point, we must be able to stand in our power.

We hold the light, not through doing, but being who we are. We hold it by speaking our truth, by assisting others to remember who they are, by being in our joy amidst the chaos, by being the beacon for others to find their way.

We held space for humanity and the planet long enough that the energy now must return to us. It is how energy works. Think of it like a tsunami. Because of this great disruption in energy, the tide flows farther out to sea than it normally does. For so long, much our of personal world has evaporated - money, home, possessions, etc., that we think it will not return. Everything seems eerily quiet and at a standstill, just like it does after the tide goes out in a tsunami. The energy that caused the tide to go out to sea must come back into balance. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Now the wave comes back with more force than normal. Prepare for the wave of opposite energy to come back. Do not be surprised at the speed and enormity of what is about to enter our lives. Look at it and remember the energy we expended to be where we are and to remember who we are. We will not be surprised for we will remember the way of the universe and instead, we are grateful.

In my book, In the Key of Life, An Activational Journey to the Soul, the writing for "Sight" begins

The blessings of those chosen to bring forth the light are here now. They fall upon those who hear the words of truth. Riches pour forth now. All are bathed in the light of compassion. It is happening before your eyes.

The tide is turning and our rewards are great. We lifted our frequencies high enough to affect change in the world. We excelled in our mission. Each of us will be called up on stage to receive our reward.

I am so grateful to each of you for the marvelous work you have done. Because of you and your love, we will all live in a much brighter world. And so it is.

Many blessings my friends!
