Book Review: “Return of the Dark/Light Mother or New Age Armageddon?” by Monica Sjöö

I’ve wanted to review this book for awhile, but reading it kept triggering me to pick up other reference books, so that this one book turned into reading about seven books! I finally finished it today. Monica Sjöö’s “Return of the Dark/Light Mother or New Age Armageddon?” is called “New Age and Armageddon: The Goddess or the Gurus” in its UK edition. Both versions carry the subtitle, “Towards a Feminist Vision of the Future.” With those titles, one might conclude that Sjöö enters the book with a full-on agenda; however, the book itself raises more questions than it answers. At relatively equal parts memoir, grief work (processing the deaths of her two sons), feminist polemic, Goddess celebration, Earth manifesto, sacred site pilgrimage, and apocalyptic warning, Return of the Dark/Light Mother is actually very difficult to pin down.

Sjöö presents a well-researched, sometimes shocking look at the cultural appropriation, racism, patriarchal and imperialistic attitude and actions of many New Age messages and gurus. I found her analyses articulated the discomfort and occasional outrage I’ve felt when reading channeled material or hearing New Age platitudes, as well as through observing in private sessions with clients just how much damage New Age thought has caused some lovely, sincere and good-hearted people. I have never felt comfortable with the “instant shaman just add water” nature of so many New Age books and trainings, and I, too, have noticed how much of the channeled material supports passivity and denial in the face of a looming military industrial complex and international globalist New World Order.

I often wonder if we would be at our current level of police state in the US if so many New Agers hadn’t believed all the luv-n-lite messages claiming Obama was a “higher dimensional ET” here to “save the world,” or if so many Americans could turn a blind eye to the devastation we wreak in the Middle East, Africa and Central America if certain interpretations of the Law of Attraction didn’t convince otherwise compassionate (and maybe otherwise active?) people that the victims of US bombings and invasions had “attracted” such things by “negative thought forms.” Sjöö provides much documentation to support these and other critiques.

Return of the Dark/Light Mother was first published in 1991 and then updated in 1999. Even so, reading it in 2015 reveals it as a highly (and scarily) prophetic book. Sjöö raises alarms about GMOs, transhumanism, the encroaching police state, CIA infiltration of the New Age movement, and — a major focus of her book — New Agers’ continued (sometimes subtle, often overt) patriarchal war on women and matter, including a disregard for our home planet as damaged, 3D or low vibration, or otherwise lesser than the “Sons of Light,” atomic bombs (yes, this was a shocking and well documented New Age guru celebration throughout the book), some kind of ET/Sun/Light Savior(s), and/or a group of “Masters” controlling Earth and humanity from behind the scenes, off world or inside the Earth. Indeed, a major reason I looked for a book like Return of the Dark/Light Mother stemmed from my own alarm at the disregard for our planet in favor of “Ascension,” as though none of the poisoning or attacks on our planet matter, because we’ll all be whisked away … in 2000, in 2001, in 2012, in March 2013, in …. um, hey, what if that doesn’t happen? Shouldn’t we be cleaning up the poisons? Shouldn’t we be doing whatever we can wherever we are to stop GMO’s? Shouldn’t we be resisting free trade Trojan Horses like TPP and TTIP?  Shouldn’t we say no (loudly and with force) to more nuclear plants, patented body parts, and forced vaccinations?

I do hope that many people will take the time and considerable effort to read “Return of the Dark/Light Mother or New Age Armageddon?” It is the only book I know of and thus, the best book I can recommend, which addresses to this degree the insidious, controlling, dangerous, racist and highly patriarchal oppression masquerading as “Love,” “Light” and “Earth healing.” I especially resonated with Sjöö’s various discussions of ley lines and how the New Age fad of “healing” them or of “bringing the Light into sacred sites” needs further behind the scenes exploration to see whom or what is really instructing people to do such things. Exactly who is funding these New Age organizations, and how might their stated agenda really look if enacted? Sjöö asks many questions, many of which she admits to not knowing the answer. Taken as a group, though, along with the extensive quotes from early New Age leaders through the 1990’s, these questions, quotes and results do showcase some rather alarming trends — especially from the further vantage point of 2015.

Although I wish that anyone and everyone who even flirts with New Age ideas, channeling, natural healing and spiritual travel would read and study this book, I also need to admit that the book meanders. A lot. Monica’s personal journey of grieving and processing the deaths of her sons runs throughout the book, in nearly every chapter. On the one hand, this showcases the emotions and living into the grit and the darkness of life, not just putting a smile on things and spiritually bypassing our humanity. On the other hand, a lot of readers may not have the patience to wade through yet another version of her “process.” Unfortunately, or fortunately (it just is, like Life), this process informs some of the most astute and incisive points of the text. To skim through paragraphs in which she mentions “my son,” would mean missing enormous layers of value and insight. In many ways, Return of the Dark/Light Mother exemplifies the return of Monica Sjöö’s sons’ Dark/Light Mother, as she grieves, processes and nourishes herself back to life, often through mystical experiences at sacred sites.

A prolific visionary artist, Sjöö scatters black and white images of her artwork throughout the book, along with lengthy annotations describing the paintings, locations, experiences at the locations, public reactions to the paintings, and anything that inspired the images. Her work is phenomenal! It combines dolmens and sacred mounds with goddesses from diverse traditions as far apart as Africa, Ireland, and South America. The paintings offer visceral glimpses into the mystical realms and experiences that Sjöö can only approximate with words.

Clearly, she has a complex, deep, loving, and sometimes troubled relationship with the Goddess in all her many forms, but Sjöö remains a fierce advocate for all things Goddess throughout the book. This fierceness and clear slant may alienate male as well as female readers, because she clearly wants everyone to get spiritually back in touch with Mother Earth, and she clearly has her own ideas of how we should (or should not) go about such an endeavor. I largely agree with Sjöö, but even I sometimes found myself mumbling, “OK, OK, yeah, yeah…” only to find some new nugget or aha to remind me not to give into the temptation to skim. For all its overt patriarchy bashing, Return of the Dark/Light Mother is actually a quite subtle book. I will let Monica Sjöö speak to the subtleties she tries to parse:

“I believe in the power of thought and of thought-forms. I know the importance of meditation and visualisation. I believe in the reality of communication with the spirits, of the spiritworld and of reincarnation. I have experienced many times the oracular power of wells and of the sacred places of the Goddess. I do believe that we are indivisible and holistically whole. I believe that we must open our second sight and ‘see’ again. I believe that if we work with Earth’s places of power and Her evolutionary lights, we ourselves will be deeply affected and great changes will come about. I believe in synchronicity — as above, so below — and in multiple universes.

“Superficially, one might think that I have much in common with New Age thinking. But, as I have tried to show throughout this book, there are great differences indeed between being open to psychic changes on many levels and adopting the fundamentally reactionary, anti-Earth and anti-Goddess, patriarchal religious views of so many New Agers. I do not believe that they truly love Earth, our sorrowing Mother.

“I sense that we are having a mass near-death experience at this time…  Now is the time for all visionaries — women and men — to come to the aid of our ancient Earth Mother. We must struggle to make far-reaching changes politically and economically if we are to survive, and we must indeed also mediate worldwide and dream Her alive. …”

I would remind readers that Monica Sjöö wrote and revised this book pre-9/11, pre-2003 Iraq War, pre-Afghanistan, pre-unauthorized Libya invasion, pre-Monsanto becoming a household name, pre-BP Oil “spill,” pre-Fukushima, pre-NDAA, pre-TPP, and pre-Ukraine-Russia-NATO potential for WW3. While, like Monica, I seem superficially in favor of many New Age platitudes and ideas, like her, I recognize we need to heal our planet with direct action of cleaning up nuclear waste and pollution, not just “bringing Light down to Mt. Shasta” or reasserting control over the ley lines. We need to RESPECT Earth and all of her creatures and people, not insert some new patriarchal, top down CONTROL agenda “of the Light.” Important things like gestation, sleep and dreams occur in the dark. As I’ve said before, all light, all the time is just as destructive (maybe even more so) as too much darkness. Reading how New Age leader after leader actively celebrated the atomic bomb and the idea of nuclear war as a great liberator from matter was an incredible wake-up call. I know that radiation mutates with a possibility of transmutation, but a religion/philosophy whose early founders repeatedly celebrated bombs as liberation from matter and heralded the blinding flash of an atomic explosion as the great Light should hopefully give us all pause. At least before we hit the self-destruct button.

If you read Return of the Dark/Light Mother, prepare to be challenged, intrigued and expanded. Then prepare to go back inside yourself and into Nature, to listen and observe, to hear and feel as humans once knew how to do. Remember and reconnect — not just with your mind, but with your precious body, made of Earth and Stars, influenced by the Moon, in harmony with earth, sea and sky. Thank you, Monica Sjöö for your beautiful heart and art and for your fierce devotion to our planet and the loving consciousness within Her.

Blessed Be.

Lee Harris April 2012 Energy Forecast

I just love finding Lee’s forecasts after the month has already begun. That gives me a chance to notice my own patterns and themes, as well as those of clients. As usual, Lee Harris articulates so much of what I’ve sensed in late March leading into April and then observed in sessions this month. Good news for people who feel like life just won’t let up:

“April marks the end of a cycle and the close to chapter 1 of 2012 energetically speaking.

“May will start a new cycle for us, so this month will bring an end to the death cycles that so many have been going through these past months. Fragments from the past will finally resolve, physical energy will start to lift, and the hibernation period will draw to a close for most of you.

“I do not need to repeat that these are intense times we are living in, for we are highly aware of this. But what I do need to repeat, is that the difficult symptoms of your journey will be unquestionably improved by greater focus on your physical and emotional well-being.” ~Lee Harris

I hope you enjoy the rest of his forecast.

Please note: If you feel you need extra energetic support this month, I did bring back the Ascension Coaching Packages through April 23, 2012. We’ve got a lot of energy zapping this planet from inside out and upside down. If you can align yourself with Source, you can tap into that increased energy and use it to make quantum leaps. If you find yourself out of alignment with Source, you’ll feel frazzled, erratic, in danger, fried, and/or burned out. The Ascension Coaching Packages are designed to shift you back into your own natural connection with Source. Yes, you can heal and evolve quickly enough to conduct that energy instead of getting shocked. We live in potent, electric times. I wish you all the best, always and in all ways. Namaste.

Rebounding: Why It Sometimes Works

We’ve got a rebounder in our basement, and it’s getting used. Big time. I’ve had rebounders off and on in my life, and I’ve always found them kind of a drag. I like how they move my lymph, but all those exercises kind of bored me after a (very short) while. For years, rebounding fell into that “I know it’s good for me, but gosh I hate it” category. Lately, though, I’ve started dancing on our rebounder, and not just dancing, but dancing to sacred chants and meditating on our “rebounding World.” I bounce for 25-30 minutes everyday now, having so much fun I need to stop myself after half an hour in order to get going on other tasks.

This healthy habit began as a remedy for empathing my dad’s lymphoma symptoms but it has had so many benefits I don’t even know where to begin. For one, I love dancing, but we have hardwood floors, which get kind of, well, hard after awhile, especially with a sometimes sore sacrum. Enter the zero impact of the rebounder. My back self-adjusts as I bounce and dance, and I’ve managed to cut my chiropractic treatments in half since I started daily rebound sessions. My lymph no longer pools, and I’m not having anymore weird cross-over from my dad’s lymphatic issues. I started making homemade kefir and chaga tea to ease the immune symptoms I’d experience whenever his flared up, and so far so good there, too. All those fabulous enzymes, minerals and probiotics have taken my normally healthy body up so many notches that I’m not even in vibrational range to empath my dad’s health issues anymore. I like to think that my healthy habits somehow traverse back to him, but I have no way of knowing that for sure. I just know that rebounding, kefir and chaga tea make me feel fab.

Groovin’ to MC Yogi has given me a chance to ponder “rebounding” as a concept and how it applies to our world right now. As within, so without. Microcosm and macrocosm. I bounce around, increasing bone density, moving lymph and restructuring my spine as old structures fall away and new ones reconfigure. We’ve had at least 450 high level bank resignations since the beginning of 2012, many high level media, government and banker arrests, as well as over 200 clergy arrested for long past crimes. We’ve supposedly got insiders preparing a new financial system that benefits everyone on Earth, not just a select few. And by “everyone on Earth,” I include Earth herself in there. Permaculture and cleaning up the planet rank high on global tasks in the New Earth. Having escaped near total tyranny in a bad relationship with a psychopathic society, one could say, we are all rebounding. We’re moving to something new, even as remnants of the old continue to fall away.

On an individual level, people often turn their noses up at “rebound relationships,” as though rebounds can never quite match up to a “real” relationship after a subjectively “sufficient” amount of time has passed. True, without a dramatic inner inventory and vibrational shift, most people fail to escape the patterns that led them out of their previous relationship; however, some people do manage to rebound well. By keeping the vibe high, focusing more on qualities they do want than on the traumas they’re leaving behind, these folks manage to launch themselves into something far beyond what came before. Their rebound becomes more of a quantum leap.

As a society, we have the possibility of making a quantum leap right now. Old structures will continue to fall away, but we need not feel bereft or directionless. We can shake it off and use that motion to attract something way healthier and way more fun. We can dance. We can sing. We can rebound, dance and sing all at the same time. Try it! You’ll never dance, chant or rebound the same again, and the higher my energy gets, the more easily I can imagine a brand New Earth. It doesn’t take that much.

Our Basement Dance Floor

As you can see, our basement dance floor is no great shakes on its own. But add some MC Yogi to the mix:

… and you’ve got inspiration for your moves. As you bounce and restructure your own body, your own energy reaches out across the world. “Be the change that you wanna see … in the world, just like Ghandi.” In 2003, Sally Kempton conducted my very first magazine interview, for Yoga Journal. She profiled my brain injury recovery (under my maiden name, Derbenwick) in an article called “Bouncing Back.” When I dance on my rebounder, I sometimes think of that article and smile. How I’ve bounced! (And I’m writing that here at 777 words — “777: You are definitely on the right path in every area of your life. Stay balanced and spiritually aware so that you can continue moving forward on the illuminated path.” ~Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers 101)

Having rebounded from many things, many times in life, I know it’s possible to rebound well. We can and will rebuild our world. We can dance!

Synchronicity, Sunshine and Solar Flares

I’ve been having one of those weeks! The kind of week that folds in upon itself, layering synchronicity upon synchronicity, spinning years of research and experience into a vortex that nonetheless feels fresh and fantastic. Yep, that kind of week. For the past three days, I’ve been alternately doing sessions, prepping for an Archangel Raphael class I’m teaching on Saturday, extracting goodies from my 1995 honors thesis on AA Raphael, reading Lon Milo DuQuette’s book about the Thoth Tarot, and eating 100% raw again — all while I have the house to myself and most local friends out of town. That combo makes for a potent (living) brew!

I discovered that my college honors thesis, “Milton’s Phoenix: Raphael, Poetry and Transmutation in Paradise Lost” is far more interesting now that I’ve spent over a decade as a professional intuitive, having had my own mystical experiences and more esoteric (as opposed to intellectual) forays into alchemy and astrology. Nearly eight years as a raw foodist studying the energy of food injected new life into those thesis sections about digestion as an alchemical process. Channeling “Raph” made the sections about Milton “writing through Raphael’s voice” seem more … real? Let’s just say it’s taken the academic distance and turned it experiential.

Then there’s the whole “Ascension through the Celestial Hierarchy” theme: much more interesting through the eyes of a 2012 Lightworker than a 1994-95 English Major. Imagine my amused and then increasingly “wow-ed” feelings as I noticed that my thesis paralleled so many Qabalistic concepts from DuQuette’s easy explanations about the mystical importance of one’s Holy Guardian Angel and how that relates to the Tarot. I’ve also been looking around the house at the nine portal doors in my possession, painted/channeled in 2010, and going “Holy, moly! So that’s what those details meant!” I find it interesting that just as my back has improved enough to think about painting another set, the woman hosting post-March Raph events in Madison just happened to mention she’d love me to paint three small doors she’s acquired — and the designs immediately began to make themselves known.

Yesterday morning, I awoke staring at the Hebrew “Elohim” on The Lovers Door. I fixated on it as I moved from sleep to wakefulness. I spent yesterday doing readings, reading DuQuette’s Thoth Tarot book, dancing on our rebounder to this Dolores Cannon video about the Earth splitting into two different dimensions, and getting a massage. Towards the end of the evening, I reached a chapter on the Sun card, and I felt a keen longing “to see the Thoth Tarot Sun card in full color.” (I don’t have that deck.)

I fell asleep, then awoke fitfully at 4:24 a.m. Unable to fall back asleep, I checked out Shiftfrequency.com, where I discovered this lovely post from Spacemuffin! She now has her own blog and gave me permission to republish this report. Note the full color Sun card from the Thoth Tarot. As you read through the report, you may notice why I say my week keeps folding in on itself — from Elohim, to the Sun, to Solar Flares, Earth splitting in two … all the way to major celebrations and “we did it” feelings! Happy Solar Flares and Happy Full Moon. … Wish well: those energies are empowering everything right now if we focus on what we most desire.

As I finished that last sentence, this draft says it saved at 5:33:33 p.m. GMT. Doreen Virtue Angel Numbers for 533: “Your prayers for guidance on how to change your life have been heard and answered by many ascended masters who love and protect you.” (From Angel Numbers 101, by Doreen Virtue.) I love it!!

And now, here’s The Muffin:

“Let the Sunshine In”

The Sun

Darling Starseeds and Lightworkers. None other compares with you. Through it all, we have made our way, back to the light. Through the darkness we have sojourned, to this place where we stand. And on the threshold we see, the new light shining upon us. We are the gatekeepers, the ones who have ushered in the Age of Aquarius. We have suffered the lonely road, and in the end, we triumph. No longer will we walk alone. No longer will our knowledge be locked away inside. Now we are free, no longer the outcasts of the world. No longer will we be be mis-understood, and mocked by others. Now we are the way-showers and must continue to lead our beloved brothers and sisters who cry for our help, out of the confusion.

What a day this is, what a light it is that shines on us and mother earth. How triumphant we are, now and in the days to come. Our purpose has been fulfilled. We have not walked circles around our mission, but have walked headlong into the darkness without help, it seems. How difficult it was for us, but now we know who we are! Now our lonileness is over! Now we know the angels have never left us, and our star has never misled us. What kind of hearts are these, that we carry so deep inside? And from so far away, the spirit guides. What warrior hearts are these, who have bravely continued, through suffering and tears? We have made it now, and the lonely road is a thing of the past.

The confusion of who we are, is like a veil slowly lifting, and we look around to see we are the ones who must help our brothers and sisters back to the light. Although the path is now unshadowed, the task is not yet finished. In the Light of the Eternity of the End, we shine as the stars in the night sky. Now we know who we are and everything is different! All the lifelong isolation is but a dream of the past, a sorrow so easily forgotten, as we were but asleep, and now we are awake. Our awakening was never guaranteed. Our awareness was never a foregone conclusion. We so easily could have failed, but we did not. We are the trailblazers, and even though it cost us everything, we woke up from the dream and as the stars, we were steadfast. The Elohim come now and they say to us:

Humanity has reached a cross roads now and they must choose their path. The earth is separating and splitting in two and the time will come when a direct separation will take place. We are the Elohim and we come to guide you at this time. Our love for all of you is great and we urge you forward in your mission towards ascension. No longer can false ways serve you on this course.

The journey is wrought with responsibility and choices. Staying in one place is no longer an option and the stagnation of the past is no longer that which can sustain you. Feel us with you, we come closer. Now the veils are permitting direct contact and soon you will see us.

We come to the new earth you create in your dreams and we support this new reality. Come visit with us there. We are welcoming you home. No longer shall you suffer. No longer shall you want. No longer shall you walk the lonely path of life. This is your calling. But there are choices to make and each and every one of you knows which road to take.

Do not dally, for time is speeding up and it will dissolve in the near future.
Some will be left on the old earth, but even then they will still have a choice to move forward, but it will be more difficult for them as this separation of worlds is becoming more pronounced. We love you so much, dear ones. Come back home to us.

We leave you with these words of love and say to you that all is well and proceeding to plan and we are with you and walk with you and guide you back to the light. Until the next time that we meet. We are One.

Face Piles of Trials with Smiles

The Muffin

Lee Harris March 2012 Energy Forecast

Thanks to Tania Marie for letting me know this was out! As usual, I find Lee Harris expresses just those things I’ve been noticing for myself as well as repeatedly with clients. He focuses on self-nurturing, especially with regard to taking care of the body and establishing appropriate boundaries with others. “Can you trust that what is right for you is also absolutely perfect for those around you?” Sometimes saying no takes all the courage and tough love we can muster, and yet it remains the balanced response. Lee addresses people who feel others’ needs tugging on their heartstrings but who themselves need to honor what keeps them in a harmonious vibration. Whether you work in the healing field or simply care about those around you, March brings with it an intense need for centering.

Lee’s suggested Affirmation for March: “I will love and nurture myself, body and soul. I will honor and enjoy myself, body and soul. I will love and remember those around me, for we are all brothers and sisters. I will love and nurture my original mother, the Earth, just as she nurtures my life.”

Your Right to Preferences

This theme keeps coming up in coaching and intuitive sessions, so I thought I’d mention it here. If I hear it so often in private sessions, then lots of others are likely experiencing it, too!

In a nutshell, you don’t need to feel guilty for having preferences. We live in a vibrational and co-creative Universe, which continues to birth and rebirth itself according to desires. Yes, desires, preferences, hopes, dreams … without them, the Universe would stagnate. Preferences are not only a Divine Right, but also kind of a Source Mandate. Source, God, the Universe, whatever you want to call it, expands in response to your desires. Each time you hone a desire or discover a new preference, you tweak the manifestation instructions you present to All That Is.

Sure, people, governments, religious authorities, and schools sometimes tell you your preferences are bad, evil, unwarranted, or crazy, but that doesn’t change the fact you have them. I don’t mean to give license to harm other people — oftentimes the repressive preference squashers are the ones secretly harming others! Those who manipulate via guilt, shame, ridicule and diminishing do not have your best interest at heart, so why allow them to make decisions for you? Why allow them to create your life instead of you?

If someone laughs at your preferences or tells you that you’re wrong or selfish for having them, take a moment to explore why that person even cares. What investment does that person have in whether or not something brings you joy, frustration, or sorrow? Does that person really know you better than you know yourself? And if so, why would you allow that to continue happening?! You’re a fabulous, intriguing, amazing, deep, diverse, and interesting person; I guarantee it. If you don’t see that, then it might be time for some proactive cord cutting, followed by a quiet, healing meditation and/or journaling. Get to know yourself! Get to know what makes you tick. In order to Follow Your Bliss, it helps to make note of what feels like Bliss to you.

As we shift from 3D to whatever and wherever we’re shifting, vibration becomes even more important. If you allow yourself to whither in someone else’s limitations, then you rob not only yourself, but the collective reality as well. Why not co-create something you truly love? Why not expand yourself in joy and jubilation? Your growth grows the Universe. Your ability to maintain a positive, exciting and Spirit filled life frees others to do so, too.

Preferences can range anywhere from types of food you like, to qualities of relationship, degree of sexual compatibility, financial ease, the kinds of clients you wish to attract, boundaries in business, weather … no limitations here! You can’t talk yourself out of preferences. Repressed preferences will rear their heads at the most inopportune times, so you might as well acknowledge and honor them upfront. Knowing what you want will also help you avoid the following common and unfortunate relationship dynamic:

Someone really, really wants something from you. In this example, let’s say they want you. They want you to commit to them, and in exchange they offer you something that’s important to them but not necessarily important to you. From their perspective, they’re giving you the world, and you darned well better appreciate it. You, on the other hand, just don’t really feel that attracted to them, or, for whatever reason, you just don’t feel the same way about the proposed exchange. Because they have given you their “stuff” and lord that fact over you, you begin to feel like you should feel different about them than you do. You might try to convince yourself that your preferences are superficial, stupid, or unenlightened. You might try to convince yourself that attraction and compatibility don’t really matter as much as unconditional love.

Just to clarify: you can unconditionally love someone and not desire to marry them. You can unconditionally love someone and choose not to spend much time with them. You can unconditionally love someone, wish them well, and yet still honor yourself by listening to your own sense of what feels balanced. Just because someone gives you something they value, doesn’t require you to place the same value upon that something. You have a right to your own, unique preferences, and if a relationship fails to match up, you can choose to walk away, or redefine the nature of that relationship. If the other person starts calling you names, guilt tripping you, or otherwise stomping on your sincere efforts to attract win win situations for all involved, then you’ve just received a clear indication that you are not receiving unconditional love, no matter if you’re giving that or not. Guilt works as a primary manipulative tool.

This dynamic can occur in romantic relationships, business trades, expectations between clients/customers and providers, higher education, and any other encounters you have with someone who may not share all your preferences. Clear communication helps, but in fairness, that needs to go both ways. If someone expresses what they want, and you know that you are either unwilling or unable to meet those preferences, then sharing that information allows you to maintain integrity in the relationship with the other person and within yourself. As we shift further away from duality, split intentions will become increasingly difficult to bear. Recognizing early signs of incompatibility and taking proactive steps to redefine relationships or to extricate yourself from imbalanced situations will speed your ability to shift into a newer, cleaner, easier reality. The more people who take responsibility for the world they wish to co-create, the freer world we’ll find.

If you choose to Follow Your Bliss, then Bliss will choose to follow you. From that higher vibration, you will create and attract an extraordinarily inspiring life. You will become the change you wish to see in the world. And I promise you, you will find kindred spirits who celebrate with you and for you. Lonely is feeling obligated to love someone or serve someone in ways your heart and Spirit won’t allow. Nothing feels lonelier than telling your authentic Self to settle now and wait for next lifetime. You’re not here to reiterate the status quo. In case you haven’t noticed, default reality on Earth hasn’t been a resounding success. That’s why all the structures and illusions have begun to fall away. The New Earth won’t build itself without your input. You vote with your vibration, and the higher your vibe, the better your world. Want freedom? Free yourself, and watch what happens.

I love you.
