Wow, wow, wow … a very synchronous Doreen Virtue reading for me personally, but I know it’s also right in tune for a number of clients, friends and family members. The last card shares an extra special and insistent message from the angels. Peace and blessings to you on this journey!

Today I’m posting two videos featuring actor, scholar, poet and speaker, Alexander Barry, aka Patrick Dixon.
Video 1 gives an overview and context of various beings associated with Human Evolution at this time. It contains fascinating information about Archetypes and their interplay with the evolutionary drama on this planet. “The final frontier is really the awakening and the perception across the threshold of the so-called dead who are not dead. And that’s coming. More and more children are being born who can remember past lives, and that’s what’s coming for humanity. … People who can see across the thresholds.”
Taken together, these videos almost feel like the time-lapse unfolding of a plant, from seed to sprout to leaf to flower to seed to winter to seed to spring — a continuous growth cycle of ideas. I’ve had the privilege of reading some of Alexander’s writings and found them simultaneously mind opening, heart centered and deeply grounding. I was pleased to learn today that he’s now put up a website, which will gradually release some of his talks and writings.
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with two videos and some notes (in no particular order) that I took while listening. In prose, poetry or lecture, Patrick Dixon’s words work and play on what I would call the mythic level. He refers to the “irrational (or pre-rational), rational and suprarational” — noting, “there is something beyond rationality.” As someone who loves integration and experiences daily the consciousness of other beings, I very much enjoy his explanations. They do take some digestion, even for me, who lives in a pretty similar “reality.” Don’t worry if you don’t “get” everything he says! I just wanted to share another person speaking about so many different levels of awareness and experience.
Notes/topics covered, followed by the videos:
The Cosmic Seed of Truth
The Solar Logos/Christ Consciousness
“Archangel Michael — a being whose task is to activate the heartfelt thinking, the imaginative consciousness.”
Patrick also provides some really interesting discussion about the Archetypal being of Lucifer as the impetus for ideas of and experiences of separation, as well as “beauty without goodness,” “the mask,” “the glamour.” He discusses the Archetype of Lucifer as “the being who gave us the ability to look at the surfaces, the beautiful surfaces, the entrancing surfaces.” A byproduct of only looking at the surfaces, though, is this false sense of separation from All That Is. The difference between the New Age religion and the deepest Wisdom from ancient traditions is this dressing up of the surface of such traditions.
[I've commented on this before myself: "The whole New Age movement is just fluff, but it’s based on some actual Truth if you dig around long enough, just like any of the world religions. The problem with the New Age material, for the most part, is that it’s been co-opted and just slightly misses the mark or keeps the deepest secrets hidden but then presents itself as giving all the secret answers beyond the 'traditional' religions. It’s very deceptive. That said … the reason it’s able to be so deceptive is because it does keep a fair amount of Truth hidden in plain view. That attracts seekers. Very few continue to observe themselves and observe Nature to be able to sort out which things are fluff and which things are valuable."]
More from Patrick:
Humans as “soul beings,” “some darkness, some light.”
The war between Christianity and the New Age.
Different ways of experiencing “God.”
The “super-paradigm” that combines the best of the East and West.
“Science needs to be transformed. What they’re talking about and what they think they’re talking about is something else.”
Looking at the fruits of various movements encourages discernment:
Waldorf Schools, yoga, Emanuel Swedenborg, Rudolf Steiner, Madame Blavatsky, Theosophy, Krishnamurti…
About halfway through the second video, you’ll find some lively group discussion about religion — the blessings and the dangers of it, as well as the transcendence of religion through personal experience of the awakening Self.
“To be an agnostic is a healthier thing than to be an atheist. … I’ve spent my life studying science because I know I’ve got to deal with it. The paradigm that includes the superphysical dimensions is infinitely more interesting. You enter realms, whereas if you really study modern science, … they’ve already fixed certain thoughts. They’re already graven images. They’re there, and that’s what people retreat from, and rightly so.” Patrick then extols the benefits of having an open mind. “There’s more than we know, but the scientific method is built on denial.”
I hope you find these videos as undeniably integrative as I do.
I’ve been getting so many questions about this topic, especially since my recent radio show where we talked about Energy Vampires. During that show I mentioned some tools to help people disconnect from unwanted interactions with people or entities draining their energy through emotional cords. I’m including a few of the tools here, so I have somewhere to refer all the people asking me about this topic.
1. Ask for cord-cutting help from Archangel Michael. He’s got a fiery sword and he’s one heckuva warrior. AA Michael can cut cords like nobody’s business, and he knows how to find those hidden ones that you might have overlooked when trying to attempt cord cutting on your own.
One caveat with AA Michael and all the angels: they absolutely will not interfere without permission. If parts of you still want those connections, then AA Michael will not sever them prematurely. In the event you feel he’s “not helping you,” it doesn’t mean he won’t or can’t; it means you’ve got some parts of you still reaching out for the connection. You won’t feel much different if AA Michael severs the cords and then you immediately send out a needy, clingy, apologetic, or addictive message to the castaway vamp: “Please come back! I didn’t mean it! Please, please come back.” Permission comes in a variety of forms. When we’re talking about energy vampirism, doesn’t it make sense that the permission could be sent energetically?
Oftentimes people do feel conflicted about energy vampires, because those folks or entities are extremely good at finding your emotional hot spots, especially areas of shame, guilt or inadequacy. These insecurities become just that: unsecured entrances into your being. The more time you spend cleared of these beings, the more you can heal. That’s why it helps to ask AA Michael for regular cord cuttings. If you feel extremely conflicted about someone, then a single cord cutting probably won’t do the job. You might feel good for awhile and then thoughts of the other person begin to invite them back into your energy field. Time for another cord cutting. Eventually, you start to feel more normal without the connection than with it, but the adjustment can take a little time.
Angels always honor your own inner process, so please don’t blame AA Michael for you still having cords! The blame game locks you back into the whole victim-abuser-savior cycle, which makes you a tasty treat for energy vampires. Taking responsibility for your own addictive reconnection requests, as well as taking a stand in favor of boundaries by asking for repeated clearings, will gradually rebuild a functional and healthy sense of personal power.
2. As an immediate follow-up to AA Michael cord cutting, you might want to ask AA Raphael (literally “God heals”) to help seal up your aura. Think of cutting the umbilical cord after a birth. It also gets tied up and monitored for healing. With your permission, AA Raphael can smooth over any auric rough patches and fill in any holes left by those emotional bonds. Yes, they really are bonds, but you can break free.
3. You can also call upon Runic energy to protect your auric field. The Thorn Rune, also called Thurisaz or Dhoarnn, brings with it the energy of a thorny hedge. Remember in Sleeping Beauty how the castle gets surrounded by thorns so thick that only the right prince can pass? No one and nothing else gets through. You can use Thurisaz as an energy filter, imagining multiples of this Rune surrounding you on all sides and dimensions, above and below.
This Rune acts like Thor’s hammer, repelling and binding enemies to keep them from attacking you. Runes are tools, and please remember that a hammer can build a house or smash someone’s head in. I only recently began teaching about Runes on this blog because I sense a need for such tools as people move through the intensifying energies of 2012. I operate from more of an Aikido perspective in that I prefer not to attack anyone at all, even when attacked. Rather, I like to disengage and transmute the energy into something more preferable. That’s how I use this Rune — not as a hammer flying out to crush anyone “bad.” Instead I employ Thurisaz like the Aikido technique of “blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on. This requires very little physical strength, as the aikidōka (aikido practitioner) ‘leads’ the attacker’s momentum using entering and turning movements.”
Please use Runes responsibly! They might look like a bunch of straight and angular lines, but they speak directly to the subconscious mind. In that sense, they create reality. Potent tools of co-creation, Runes can help you define clearer boundaries and filters, protect your energy, charge intentions and pretty much anything else you desire. The tools themselves are neutral, though. Positive, high vibe intent remains key, especially when dealing with energy vampires. If you start abusing others’ boundaries or using Runes to control people through subconscious programming, then you continue to vibrate with that victim-abuser-savior cycle. You’ll find it very difficult to escape energetic vampirism if you yourself surf off others’ energy. Like attracts like.
4. But Light also attracts dark. That old, opposites attract saying does have some truth to it. People filled with tremendous Light and Love do tend to find a lot of people and beings sucking them dry. The greater their connection to Source the less they might even notice the drain, because they constantly become so replenished.
For many millenia, the Lightworkers’ main job was to bring Light into the dark spots; however, we are entering a new time. In 2012 and beyond, Lightworkers need to model the new possibilities available to all humanity. This means acting more like a mirror than someone’s next “fix.” This means increasing one’s Light and sealing off all the drains, so that their Light continues to expand and shine brighter and brighter. Having a bunch of depleted or less than optimally radiant Lightworkers doesn’t do the job anymore, because the job has changed. Humans as a species need to step into their own inner connection to Source. By cutting off the easy secondhand supply, Lightworkers actually encourage people to tap directly into Source.
Lightworkers can still carry Light and Love into this world. In fact, they can do so much better when they continue to grow stronger and more confident in their abilities and Divine connection. I’ll leave you with the following quote for inspiration and explanation of why protecting your energy field has become one of the most important tasks for anyone wanting to make a positive difference in the world:
“You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive.
You cannot get sick enough to help sick people get better.
It is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone.
If you’re wanting to be of an advantage to others,
be as tapped in, tuned in, turned on as you can possibly be.”
