To Those Who Think They are Falling Behind In Life
Posted: 28 Sep 2016 04:30 AM PDT
We all go through times when we feel as though life is leaving us in the dust. Our instincts may tell us to panic, or to push ourselves harder. We berate ourselves for not going fast enough, not trying hard enough, or not being good enough.
Stop. You don’t need to jump into action.
You need to stop pushing forward for a minute.
Rest. Reflect. Find yourself. Love yourself. Meet yourself exactly where you are.Trust that the greatest things in your life will happen in their own time.Give yourself permission to be whoever it is that you are in this moment. What lessons are you supposed to be learning? What relationships do you need to focus on? What qualities are you building in your character? Stop looking for external indicators of your success. Take a moment to reflect on where you are in an internal sense.
You don’t have to control every aspect of your life. You couldn’t, even if you tried. Measuring your own worth on external factors is a recipe for disaster. You can not control your environment. You can not control what happens to you, or choose which challenges life throws your way. You can only control yourself.
How do you feel about yourself today? Are you kind? Are your morals in the right place? What do you value? Do you give enough of yourself to the people and projects that are important to you? What are your priorities in life? Do you invest your time and energy in a way that reflects them? Are your true thoughts and beliefs reflected in the words you say? Are your thoughts and words backed up by your actions?
These are the questions that you need to focus on. You’ll notice that none of them can by measured by your external accomplishments.
It is natural to compare yourself to others. Your sister is starting law school. Your best friend is getting married. Your co-worker is (happily and intentionally) pregnant. Your workout partner just got a promotion and a raise. Your lacrosse teammate from high school is buying a house. It is natural to see these things and wonder, “What am I doing?”
It is natural – but it is not helpful. It is not productive.
Instead, focus on the internal. “Who am I?”
Put your time and energy into becoming a good person. Identify your true passions and interests. Pursue them with the whole of your being.
Trust in the mystery of the universe. Believe that there is a plan set in place for the future. Right now you might not be able to see the forest for the trees – but whatever it is you are going through, there is a reason.
Good things will come to you when the timing is right. As Howard Thurman wrote, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

What Happened to Downtime? The Extinction of Deep Thinking & Sacred Space ~ September 26, 2016
We're addicted to distraction, and it's holding us back. To find genius in the 21st century, we must build a discipline of unplugging and deep thinking.
Interruption-free space is sacred. Yet, in the digital era we live in, we are losing hold of the few sacred spaces that remain untouched by email, the internet, people, and other forms of distraction. Our cars now have mobile phone integration and a thousand satellite radio stations. When walking from one place to another, we have our devices streaming data from dozens of sources. Even at our bedside, we now have our iPads with heaps of digital apps and the world’s information at our fingertips.There has been much discussion about the value of the “creative pause” – a state described as “the shift from being fully engaged in a creative activity to being passively engaged, or the shift to being disengaged altogether.” This phenomenon is the seed of the break-through “a-ha!” moments that people so frequently report having in the shower. In these moments, you are completely isolated, and your mind is able to wander and churn big questions without interruption. However, despite the incredible power and potential of sacred spaces, they are quickly becoming extinct. We are depriving ourselves of every opportunity for disconnection. And our imaginations suffer the consequences.
Why do we crave distraction over downtime?Why do we give up our sacred space so easily? Because space is scary. During these temporary voids of distraction, our minds return to the uncertainty and fears that plague all of us. To escape this chasm of self-doubt and unanswered questions, you tune into all of the activity and data for reassurance. But this desperate need for constant connection and stimulation is not a modern problem. I would argue that we have always sought a state of constant connection from the dawn of time, it’s just never been possible until now.
We are depriving ourselves of every opportunity for disconnection.The need to be connected is, in fact, very basic in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the psychological theory that explains the largest and most fundamental human desires. Our need for a sense of belonging comes right after physical safety. We thrive on friendship, family, and the constant affirmation of our existence and relevance. Our self-esteem is largely a product of our interactions with others. It is now possible to always feel loved and cared for, thanks to the efficiency of our “comment walls” on Facebook and seamless connection with everyone we’ve ever known. Your confidence and self-esteem can quickly be reassured by checking your number of “followers” on Twitter or the number of “likes” garnered by your photographs and blog posts. The traction you are getting in your projects, or with your business, can now be measured and reported in real time. Our insatiable need to tune into information – at the expense of savoring our downtime – is a form of “work” (something I call “insecurity work”) that we do to reassure ourselves.
So what’s the solution? How do we reclaim our sacred spaces?Soon enough, planes, trains, subways, and, yes, showers will offer the option of staying connected. Knowing that we cannot rely on spaces that force us to unplug to survive much longer, we must be proactive in creating these spaces for ourselves. And when we have a precious opportunity to NOT be connected, we should develop the capacity to use it and protect it. Here are five potential mindsets and solutions for consideration:
1. Rituals for unplugging.Perhaps those in biblical times knew what was in store for us when they created the Sabbath? The notion of a day every week reserved for reflection has become more important than ever before. It’s about more than just refraining from work. It’s about unplugging. The recent Sabbath Manifesto movement has received mainstream, secular accolades for the concept of ritualizing the period of disconnection. Perhaps you will reserve one day on the weekend where you force yourself to disconnect? At first, such efforts will feel very uncomfortable. You will deal with a bout of “connection withdrawal,” but stay with it.
2. Daily doses of deep thinking.Perhaps “sacred space” is a new life tenet that we must adopt in the 21st century? Since we know that unplugging will only become more difficult over time, we will need to develop a discipline for ourselves. Back in the day when the TV became a staple of every American home, parents started mandating time for their children to read. “TV time” became a controlled endeavor because, otherwise, it would consume every waking moment. Now, every waking moment is “connected time,” and we need to start controlling it. We need some rules. When it comes to scheduling, we will need to allocate blocks of time for deep thinking. Maybe you will carve out a 1-2 hour block on your calendar every day for taking a walk or grabbing a cup of coffee and just pondering some of those bigger things. I can even imagine a day when homes and apartments have a special switch that shuts down wi-fi and data access during dinner or at night – just to provide a temporary pause from the constant flow of status updates and other communications.
3. Meditation and naps to clear the mind.There is no better mental escape from our tech-charged world than the act of meditation. If only for 15 minutes, the ability to steer your mind away from constant stimulation is downright liberating. There are various kinds of meditation. Some forms require you to think about nothing and completely clear your mind. (This is quite hard, at least for me.) Other forms of meditation are about focusing on one specific thing – often your breath, or a mantra that you repeat in your head (or out loud) for 10-15 minutes. At first, any sort of meditation will feel like a chore. But with practice, it will become an energizing exercise. If you can’t adopt meditation, you might also try clearing your mind the old fashioned way – by sleeping. The legendary energy expert and bestselling author Tony Schwartz takes a 20-minute nap every day. Even if it’s a few hours before he presents to a packed audience, he’ll take a short nap. I asked him how he overcomes the midday anxiety enough to nap. His trick? “Practice,” he said. Like all skills that don’t come naturally, practice makes perfect.
4. Self-awareness and psychological investment.Our most basic fears and desires, both conscious and subconscious, are soothed by connectivity and a constant flow of information. It is supremely important that we recognize the power of our insecurities and, at the very least, acknowledge where our anxiety comes from. Awareness is always the first step in solving any problem. During research for my book, Making Ideas Happen, I was surprised by how many legendary creative leaders credited some form of therapy as a part of their professional success. If you’re willing to invest in it, then take the plunge. Whatever you learn will help you understand your fears and the actions you take as a result.
5. Protect the state of no-intent.When you’re rushing to a solution, your mind will jump to the easiest and most familiar path. But when you allow yourself to just look out the window for 10 minutes – and ponder – your brain will start working in a more creative way. It will grasp ideas from unexpected places. It’s this very sort of unconscious creativity that leads to great thinking. When you’re driving or showering, you’re letting your mind wander because you don’t have to focus on anything in particular. If you do carve out some time for unobstructed thinking, be sure to free yourself from any specific intent.
***The potential of our own creativity is rapidly being compromised by the era we live in. I believe that genius in the 21st century will be attributed to people who are able to unplug from the constant state of reactionary workflow, reduce their amount ofinsecurity work, and allow their minds to solve the great challenges of our era. Brilliance is so rare because it is always obstructed, often by the very stuff that keeps us so busy.

Ascending Earth Update by Ailia Mira
I'm in the VOID.
Do you feel it? The Void is that empty space where it feels like nothing is happening. It can be frustrating if you resist it, wanting everything to start moving and shaking. Or if you don't recognize it.
The way to be with the void is to let go. Hang, and soften. Enjoy.
The Void is a natural part of upgrading and changing. As you continue to evolve, you'll experience the void again and again. Given the deep shifts many of us have felt happening in this Eclipse Cycle, it's not surprising to find yourself in this experience.
The void is a state of transformation and feeling it, indicates a specific location in the cycle of change. The void may feel like nothing it going on, or it can feel like a lot is happening, but you don't know what or what to do with it. In the Void, we're in a deep period of integration and emergence. Life is going again to birth.
The Void can make you want to hole up and withdraw. You may feel much less social than normal. You might feel over-energized, or more sleepy than normal, or both! You may feel confused and your moods may go up and down.
In this deep restructuring you're learning to orient and perceive and think in new ways. It may be harder to think and respond in ways people are used to you responding and yet you may not know what is happening yet and what life will be like on the other side. In a sense you are starting to orient to a new level of consciousness, a new standard for being and choosing.
You might be experiencing the void in an area of life, rather then overall. This happens too as specific parts of our experience are deeply transformed.
If you're feeling this, now is a time to allow these deep changes to penetrate and perpetuate a new way of being. It's not push. Instead let inspiration return and arise, organically, from your newness. There is always a point in this journey when you feel more clear and strong, and then you feel inspired to take action because what you want next, becomes obvious.
Until it does, enjoy the still point of this and trust that all that you've summoned, allowed, completed, cleared, upgraded and shifted will come forth in a new configuration.
Let yourself change. Embrace this experience, for you've summoned it, in your desire to grow spiritually and expand.
Breathe deeply and sink into this part of the experience. Listen to your body and honor it's wisdom. Once the amazing work of assimilating all this newness into form and your multidimensional connections reset you'll find you come online in new ways. Be curious and soft as things start to come forth. Discover who you are, by what arises from within, rather then projecting the familiar onto the newness.
I tried repeatedly to channel this afternoon, but could not. This often happens when such a fundamental change is occurring that I'm offline, while restructuring. So I took to my bed, read a book and relaxed.
I now view the Void with delight - it's full of promise. The Void to me means the major information and activations have been received and the building is underway. There's nothing to do but let go and trust. So I watch movies, read, walk outside and expect little of myself.
Tomorrow is the Equinox and given what I'm feeling, it feels like Divine Timing.
The Equinox can assist us with balance, inner harmony, and poise amidst transformation. Both learning what these are like and generating that in our experience. These reliable galactic cycles, can remind us of the incredible intelligence everywhere, if we choose to see know it this way.
I'm tired today. My sleep cycles have been off. I'm energized and staying up late, but waking at the dawn. But even amidst this tiredness and given my inability to channel, I know that this Eclipse Cycle is a game changer.
The pure line of spirit, the parallel within our world of the fulfillment of the destiny of humanity is amplified.
There will continue to be drama in the world and extremes, but there's also a clear alternative: knowing our mastery, and pivoting out of separation. Choosing love.
Love is a creative force, that manifests as feelings but is essentially a flow of divine light within us. Love propels us to elaborate our energy signature, our essence, without inhibition. When we do this and knowingly, we can discover grace. Once we welcome and allow life to flow, change, expand, connect, and come together in an experience of wholeness, we naturally want to share and express ourselves. We discover that being who we are, is also the key to having what we want -for they are one and the same. Fulfillment comes about through alignment and authenticity.
Once we get that, our life becomes an act of embodied love and our stewardship of our humanity, universal and personal. We can embrace expressing our essence, directly, confidently, with respect and honor for the way we are here a unique expression of Creation. Love for ourselves, love for everyone else. Love for all ways people are playing out the end-game of the old world and love for all the new emerging frequencies that feel like balm and joy and possibility and aliveness.
We become part of that pure line of spirit, the path of divine identity and expression, a life and way of being which implodes separation.
There are many doorways to awakening and all of them are infused and nourished by the same unified field. We wake up and live from a sense of somehow knowing, that what was is now obsolete and then the newness of our knowing just keeps opening up and expanding. An ever-expanding experience of following our spirit and that path unfolding our capacity and fulfillment. How miraculous is that?
I look forward to emerging from my own transformation and to sharing what comes up and through me, with you. I welcome any and all changes you are creating. I celebrate your mastery and embrace you with knowing, kinship and love.
Here's to all you are, and all you are becoming!

Prepare for the Equinox 9222016Posted on September 20, 2016
Equinox arriving Thursday is occurring during a powerful window of time.
Humanity has been doing lots of status-quo reviews, and most likely you have had your own on a very personal level.
The Mercury Retrograde, ending Wednesday, has been an excellent time to reassess your life circumstance and decide what you would want to keep or discard going forward.
If you’re not familiar with the planets and astrology, a cycle like Mercury Retrograde can often be the catalyst for some big rethinking of one’s life.
A Rethinking Phase
With so much changing now, and the constant influx of new factors to consider, it’s not surprising you would be in a rethinking phase – even without the Retrograde.
The two eclipses of September added an element of intensity to your self-introspection. The Pisces Lunar Eclipse during last week’s Full Moon provided a huge opening for looking with more clarity at your life.
Most likely, either consciously or in the dream state, you had new insights about what fuels your choices.
Role of Emotions
As part of this you may have awakened one day this past week with a brand-new perspective about your emotional life and the connection to motivations.
This is very helpful.
Changing patterns and life direction is much easier once you understand your inner motivations for doing things.
Emotions can play a key role.
An important part of spiritual awakening is to become more attuned to your own emotional states – learning to understand how emotions fuel responses to life events.
Emotions are front-and-center in much of global dialogue about the overhaul of society. There is a lot at stake and people hold very diverse views.
Your Daily Processing
Daily you are processing your own response to the world’s accelerating uncertainty and chaos. If you were consciously aware of all that you process in a single day, you would be stunned.
For context, this indeed is a unique time for the world. So much needs to shift and many things like climate and injustice are a crisis point. Political dramas, notably in the US, are driven by emotional fear-based themes.
With this background, you can better understand why your own emotions may be closer to the surface now.
After all, humanity across the world is interconnected. Further, some issues being debated on the world stage are almost as old as humanity itself.
That means your own past life DNA-level conditioning could be triggered now. Most likely you were subject to tyranny and injustice countless times before.
Therefore, in current moments your aware consciousness can respond in unfamiliar ways – due to belief systems you unknowingly hold on a subconscious level. You may get quite emotional and not know why. Example: in a past life you may have died in a revolution or you may have witnessed as your mother was unjustly sent to the gallows for suspected witchcraft.
Volume on “High”
This is especially true during energy threshold moments like Equinox. Life then may feel like someone turned the volume on “high” and your nervous system may go on alert more than normal. You may witness more emotional outbursts from others at work or home. It can feel like the lid on “normal” was removed – all kinds of weird things happening.
About Equinox Gateways
All Equinoxes are energy gateways, in part because of how the Sun aligns with the Equator and temporarily reduces Earth’s magnetic field.
This allows you to access potentially profound spiritual insights, connect with spiritual guidance, and have an expanded connection to other dimensions. In tandem with this, there’s an amplified effect at such a gateway, experiences in this dimension feeling super-sized.
This particular Equinox is a high-energy threshold involving balance and new beginnings. It’s an excellent time for inner work and meditation, helping you to connect with spiritual openings and to release past baggage so you can advance.
One of Best Transformation Thresholds in 2016
With the Sun moving into Libra, signaling a change of seasons, this Equinox is one of the best transformation thresholds so far this year!
Think of this Equinox Gateway unfolding Thursday through the weekend as a new pivotal choice point – a moment when you can propel yourself into new adventures housed in a higher frequency with quantum manifestation potentials.
Make the most of this by staying present, self-censoring negative thoughts, and making specific intentions of how you would like to see your light expressed. Approach this in a quantum way. That means seeing each moment and potential new moment as brand new and filled with a radiance that matches that of your soul. Visualize yourself living as soul starting now.
Albert Einstein Begs His Daughter To Guard THIS Letter Until Society Is Ready To Accept His Words
In the late 1980s, Evelyn, the daughter of the famous genius, donated 1,400 letters, written by Einstein, to the Hebrew University, with orders not to publish their contents until two decades after his death. This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein.
“When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us. This universal force is LOVE.
When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force. Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it. Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others. Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals. For love we live and die. Love is God and God is Love.
This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.
To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.
After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…
If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.
Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.
However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.
When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life.
I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.
Kara Schallock~ Security and Knowing - 13-Sep-2016
We continue to receive ongoing downloads of Light; there is no timetable for the downloads; they occur at perfect moments individually for each of us. Some downloads flow easily, while others seem to take our breath away. However you experience them is divinely orchestrated for you. Many of us are guided to go within and stop all outward busy-ness. Meditation and Silence as well as Nature are essential tools; more than they have been in the past. Still, there are those who continue their attachment to the outer world looking for answers or some sort of guidance. Guidance is found in the quiet times; the times of non-attachment. We can do both...be still and continue to observe the outer world. The key here is observation and detachment. I see the outer “chaos” as a positive sign that all is proceeding as it is intended to. Remember that Transformation requires a breakdown before a breakthrough. And a breakthrough is seen in some scenarios, is it not?
If one seeks security outside of themselves, they may very well be disappointed. For the only true Security is found within. We think Security comes from our paycheck or our relationships or our bank account, yet this is little security and it changes and shifts. What may seem secure in one moment is gone in the next. This little view of lower ego-security certainly can bring up fear, can't it? If one can stay centered in their own Security (Soul Essence)...no matter what the outer is doing...they feel safe. Outer security definitely brings up insecurity; and this too is a gift, for it gives each being an opportunity to release these old and limiting energies of insecurity, not feeling safe and fear out in the open for release. Realize too that the energy of insecurity comes from lifetimes of old rules, separation and the fear of not being safe. Even the chaos of our present-time world is a gift, for it helps us identify where we hold fear, judgment, paranoia, discrimination and all things that keep separation alive and well. As we release these energies of separation, we find Peace within. When we feel peaceful, we shine our Light out, which touches all. Our Perspective shifts; we see things differently and through the eyes of Source. We see that the world is not an unsafe place, but truly a place of Love.
The old matrix/paradigm is for sure crumbling. This crumbling is a positive thing, for it leads to the New eventually. When one can be in their Center of Peace, they shift their perspective to see the “good” in even what the old mindset would judge as “bad.” As frequencies rise, the Light shines on all that is not Love and this is all that is separate in life. If one would look closer and deeper, they would see the Truth that is beneath the rubble and that is Love and Transformation. It is only when one is attached to how something “should” be that there is pain. When we let go of old assumptions and not wanting things to change, we are free.
What is Transformation and how can we be sure that it leads to something better? Transformation is a complete shift from the old to the New. It depends on what you hold in your Heart. If you don't think anything will change, you hold doubt in your Heart. If you trust that Love is truly all there is, then Love is in your Heart. We know that we create through consciousness. When Love is your consciousness, then that is all that can be created. When fear is your consciousness, then that is what is created. Again, we choose. First comes the choice and then Commitment to that choice and from Commitment is being that which you choose to be in everything you say, do and feel. Through consciousness, we create the New Earth. Is it Love you choose or fear?
Is this easy? I would say no unless you truly flow with What Is. When you flow with What Is, you accept that which is hindering you so that you can let it go. We have had lifetimes of fear and persecution, which has created a heavy boulder of fear and unsafety within. It is our choice to release this and it may not be quick, for there are many layers that go deep. However, if one begins to let go of this old dark energy, they/you feel lighter and freer, even when there are more and more layers to release.
Along with releasing this old fear and insecurity, it is also important to realize that much of the ancient civilizations that many hold as something to emulate, were rife with separation (rules, roles, expectations, etc.).It is best to let it all go, including the illusions you hold dear, and allow the New to unfold. So not only do we release our personal histories, we may choose to release our cultural histories as well, including all the illusions within those histories. This is a big task, so deep do these go and our love for them. As we cleanse, we also cleanse the Earth. This most likely feels huge to you as well and you may encounter much resistance within you. Yet unless we let go of everything, the New is delayed.
We are creating positive change. It may seem daunting and even impossible, yet it truly is happening. The more we commit to this personally, the more things in the world shift. As a way to affirm this, just look at your life, the world and how your body has shifted. Those of us who are ultra-sensitive feel much in our bodies and as we shift, our bodies feel this physically. Much of how we have experienced this physical shifting has changed for some. They may include (or not, for everyone is unique in their experience) a sense of not being in your body (feeling ungrounded, dizzy, etc.), different experiences in digestion and elimination, fluctuations of emotions (some may feel depressed when they never have before), lack of motivation to do much of anything, sleeping patterns vary widely, and these are just a few and meant to confirm your Ascension and let you know that you might not even notice that you are shifting, for all is slow to help us acclimate to the energies, although it may not seem slow at all.
As Sensitivity expands, you notice things you have not noticed before. Your Awareness becomes more acute and your senses are accentuated, as is your Intuitive Knowing. Realize too that a lot of what you experience are not only the downloads of Light, but you are also detoxing the old from your cells, tissues, organs, bones and muscles. You may still be in the old habit of wondering if it was something you ate or some malady you picked up. This is old thinking and a way to continue an old pattern of complaint and blame. The ultra-sensitive ones truly are required to keep their Solar Plexus clear, as it is easy to take on others' toxins and old beliefs. Ask your body what it needs without following old rules of what's good or bad for you. Your body will respond to you. And if you bump into things or stub your toe or something like that, your message is to slow down, ground and be in the Present Moment.
Our True Selves want nothing but the best for us (as us), and so anything that interferes with that will be “problematic,” which is a way of saying that we simply cannot exist in the old any longer, so shift to where you flow instead of blindly following your self or culturally-imposed rules that surely limit you. Being authentic means to be who you are everywhere you are and by me saying “be who you are,” I mean your Soul-self. I wonder how many of us are truly authentic, since we have been molded by culture and family values and beliefs. At times, it is self-loving to set boundaries in order to be authentically you. In time, there will be no need for boundaries, as all those around us accept fully who we are. Being authentic is being Love and there is no greater Truth than this.
Some of us have been having lots of memories of the past. These memories come up because they are releasing, yet many want to hold onto them, because it's better than having nothing to hold onto now. Let them go. As we let the memories go, with them we release beliefs and patterns and old ways of being. It's best not to cling to them for comfort. Find your comfort within. Have Faith; trust in what is here now in this Moment. Allow all to surface, even memories you have deemed “bad” or “good.” It all comes up to be loved and then released. With the release comes greater Love.
If you are concerned about not finding your “tribe,” since this seems to be a popular notion, realize that your “tribe” will not be found by seeking, but by being authentically yourself. If you find you don't relate with anyone, let it be all right. A “tribe” is just a word that symbolizes a longing to belong. You belong to a bigger energy, so honor who and where you are. There is nothing wrong with you if you find you cannot relate to anyone or to just a few. Treasure those you find Resonance with and let the rest go.
As we continue to receive more Light and we continue to let go of what is not Love, we are also blessed with synchronistic meetings and surprising events that are joyful and meaningful. These connections help you evolve more as the Love you are, helping you be more. Continue to follow the energy; what expands, expands you; what contracts, contracts you. In this way, you are Divinely guided to be who you are meant to be. Pay attention to where and to whom you resonate. Your Heart and Soul know the way, while your intellect will hold you back in the past.

How to Explain Your Spirituality to Others
by: Roger Gabriel (Raghavanand), The Chopra Centre
It’s sometimes easy to forget that everyone and everything in creation is connected by a spiritual web. Everyone has a spark of Light, deep within, waiting to be fanned by the flame of spiritual awakening. As French philosopher and paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Everyone is spiritual, whether they are willing to admit it or not.
The poet Rumi put it beautifully when he wrote, “Consciousness sleeps in minerals, dreams in plants, wakes up in animals, and becomes self-aware in humans.” Everything has awareness, even if still dull and contracted in many instances. Just as the fruits on a tree ripen at their own pace, so too, our souls mature and become enlightened at different times. Everyone and everything is evolving at its own speed. Everyone’s destiny is enlightenment.
You may come across a few challenges when explaining your spirituality to others, but here are some tips.
Spiritual PrideOne of the biggest barriers to your spiritual growth may be pride—particularly spiritual pride. Mahatma Gandhi said, “The seeker after Truth should be humbler than dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet but the seeker after Truth should be so humble that even the dust would crush him/her.”
When talking about your spiritual journey, try to be humble and careful not to sound as if you are superior in some way. Avoid being confrontational by challenging someone else’s beliefs. Your practices may seem important to you but be open and accepting of other practices and points of view. When you respect others, they are more likely to listen to what you have to say. Sadly, many of the conflicts in the world today are the result of one group trying to impose its idea of spirituality on another group. Remember, you only judge from your own level of ignorance.
What to Say If you have a regular spiritual practice, you are presumably receiving some benefits, and that is a good place to start the conversation. When you hear about anything new, you may ask yourself, “What’s in it for me?” or “How could I benefit from this?” People are more likely to be interested in something that’s proven to be useful to someone else. Speak from your own experiences, such as:
Know When to StopWhen you’ve just finished meditating on a flight and the stranger sitting next to you asks you what you were doing, he or she may not be expecting or wanting a 30-minute lecture. A few sentences are usually enough to gauge a person’s interest before launching into a fuller explanation. Certainly share your practices with your family and friends but learn when to stop. No one wants to be constantly preached at.
In my early twenties, four of us rented a big house together. Three of us learned to meditate around the same time but the fourth was a holdout. The three of us who meditated pestered him mercilessly. If he got a cold or had an argument with his girlfriend, we immediately pounced and told him that if he meditated none of those situations would have happened.
Unfortunately, rather than encouraging him to meditate, we drove him in the opposite direction until, at the slightest mention of meditation—however innocent—he would jump up and stamp out of the room. The lesson: Don’t try to convert anyone to your way of thinking if it is against his or her wishes.
Be the ExampleThe simplest and easiest way to interest others in your spirituality is often not through what you say but by the life you lead. Spirituality isn’t just the time you spend meditating, praying, or doing yoga asanas. It’s how you live your life. When your spiritual qualities radiate in your daily life, other people will want what you have and want to know how they can be like that too. Rather than having to convince someone of the benefits, now you merely have to share your practices with them.
Finally, don’t be frustrated if some people aren’t interested in your practice. You don’t have to convince everyone join you. Become a spiritual lighthouse. Silently bless the world with your Love and Light wherever you go and to whomsoever you meet. This way, whether anyone is interested in your practices or not, they won’t be able to avoid benefiting from your radiance.
528 Hz – The Love Frequency
According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. It connects your heart, your spiritual essence, to the spiraling reality of heaven and earth.
Let the Love 528 music play inside youThe Love frequency is the “Miracle” note of the original Solfeggio musical scale. Independently confirmed by researchers, these core creative frequencies were used by ancient priests and healers in advanced civilizations to manifest miracles and produce blessings.
Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. Vic Showell and John Stuart Reid (a pioneer in acoustic research and cymatic measurements) have proven that 528 is essential to the sacred geometry of circles and spirals consistent with DNA structuring and hydrosonic restructuring.
528 resolves to a 6, the icon for physical manifestation. That is, 5+2+8=15; and 1+5=6 (using Pythagorean math). The symbol “6” reflects the “spiraling down from heaven into the wholeness of earth.” In fact, the Love frequency can be fundamental to broadcasting all matter and energy into reality according to the laws of physics.
Definition of the Love Frequency528 is known as the ‘Miracle’ tone which brings remarkable and extraordinary changes. Dr. Joseph Puleo analyzed the meaning of the tone using Latin dictionaries and hidden entries from Webster’s Dictionary. The “Mi” tone is characterized as:
1. an extraordinary occurrence that surpasses all known human powers or natural forces and is ascribed to a divine or supernatural cause, esp. to God.
2. a superb or surpassing example of something; wonder, marvel [1125-75]; ME <L Miraculum=Mira(Ri) to wonder at. fr(French): sighting, aiming to hold against the light. (gestorum: gesture; movements to express thought, emotion; any action, communication, etc. intended for effect.)
The 528Hz tone alone is associated with ‘DNA Repair‘
How it cleaned polluted water in the Gulf of MexicoInfuse water with nature’s most celebrated energyIn 2010, John Hutchinson, an electromagnetic energy expert from Vancouver, B.C., Canada, helped purify poisoned water off the Gulf of Mexico following the BP oil spill. He and his research partner, Nancy Hutchinson (formerly Nancy Lazaryan), used the 528 Hz frequency and other Solfeggio tones to reduce the oil and grease in polluted waters.
The polluted area was treated with the frequencies for four hours the first day, and by the next morning, the waters were cleared. They also did four more hours of RF frequency to complete the test. The frequency device was situated about 25 feet up the beach from the water.They restored the water’s vitality as manifested by the return of fish, dolphins and even barnacles. Nancy said that ‘the water that had been murky brown was a clear green. Two dolphins came into 5 feet of water to visit. Lots of schools of fish and crabs [were] very active’.John at workTheir results were certified by Dr. Robert Naman, President of Analytical Chemical Testing Laboratory, Inc. of Mobile, Alabama. Dr. Naman, an analytical chemist with almost 30 years in the field, tested the samples and confirmed the complete removal of oil and grease from the after treatment sample source tested.
As you can see, the amount of oil and grease “before” the frequency treatment was 7 ppm (parts per million, or milligrams per liter); while the samples that had undergone the frequency exposure measured less than 1 ppm.
John’s method of using sound and radio frequencies nearly eliminates the oil and toxins completely, and has no known dangerous side effects. John and Nancy can clear a radius of about a mile in one 24-hour session.
Analytical Chemical Testing Laboratory, Inc. (ACT) stated, “While the technology is not completely understood by the undersigned, it is clear that the process may have extreme value, and it should be given a chance to be presented and tested on a large scale basis.”
Who uses the 528Hz frequency?Let’s resonate together in harmony with our planetLlewelyn S. Lloyd, in the Journal of the Royal Society of Arts (16 Dec., 1949), described his innate drive to “tune-up” to a “brighter,” more soothing and inspiring frequency than A=440Hz. The British author and composer expressed his preference for precisely A=444Hz tuning, that manifests the C-5-pitch at 528 Hz. He wrote that this 4 Hz higher pitch is more generally pleasing for musicians worldwide.
Recent research by veteran piano tuner and custom piano designer Daniel Koehler demonstrated the beneficial acoustic and spiritual impact of prototype pianos that include granite bridges to best accommodate the higher tension of strings tuned to A=444Hz. Koehler reported most enthusiastically that the 528 Hz frequency resonates most powerfully and enduringly.
In 2011, multiple Grammy Award nominee Amerie produced her new album – Cymatika, Vol 1 – in 528Hz frequency to broadcast genetic healing. Another artist, Scott Huckabay, performs exclusively using the C=528/A=444 Hz tuning. Every day more and more people tune themselves to the harmonic vibrations of 528 music.
In 2009, thousands of people gathered together to participate in the Live H2O Concert for the Living Water. People were playing and chanting in 528Hz, praying for all polluted water to be blessed worldwide.The Concert for the Living Water was produced by Dr Leonard Horowitz and thousands of volunteers worldwide – there were no large commercial sponsors.
A Recipe for the Planet528Hz is the bioenergy of health and longevity. It is the harmonic vibration that lifts your heart and divine voice in harmony with heaven.
Can you imagine how beautiful the world would be with the Love vibration permeating the air? More and more people are awakening spiritually, mentally and emotionally and choose to be in tune with 528Hz. This healing frequency helps you flow in perfect rhythm and harmony.
Nearly our entire global economy is built upon a foundation of illness, sickness, and death. The powerful Sound of Love can end the problems on Earth today. I encourage you to use the 528 Hz frequency to restore human consciousness to its full power and potential.
Living in Partnership with GodPart I ~ September 2016
When I was the Avatar on your planet over two thousand years ago, I quickly learned that the only way I could fulfill my mission was to be in constant contact and communion with God. I knew in the depths of my being that living and serving in an active partnership with God was a necessity, and for you to succeed in making your ascension, this is now true for you as well. ~ Jeshua (Jesus the Christ)During the glorious time you are now all experiencing in preparation for ascending into a new Golden Age of Freedom, you are being invited to serve together as members of a Group Avatar. No one person in a physical body is going to be an Avatar as it has been in the past. Some of you have certainly made your mark and your names have entered the history books, but in time this will all be seen as simply part of what you needed to be or do for your own soul growth.
As ascended souls, you will all be seen as equals working in partnership with God. When your planet makes her full ascension with your galaxy, you will then be serving your world as Galactic Beings. This time is still to come, yet it may be helpful for you to know what the future holds. This is all part of your return journey to the levels of consciousness that you knew before the fall of Atlantis.
Many Lightworkers have offered their services to help humankind through the coming period of changes, and each one will serve according to their experience. As you can imagine, once the changes can safely be put into motion, there will be an enormous amount to do. For example, every soul will soon be provided with a decent standard of living and more choices as to how they can truly and joyfully support themselves and live in partnership with God.
There are two major ways that humankind is now functioning: one is centered around taking action based on their older belief systems of lack, limitation and separation, and the other one is founded in each one living according to their own spiritual understanding of unlimited abundance, unity and Oneness. These two ways are not compatible and they have led to much confusion and many misunderstandings. To serve in partnership with God, it is necessary to make choices that you know will manifest for the highest good of all.
Your degree of participation will be different and your part will become increasingly clear the closer you come to the time for your full ascension. All of this has truly been arranged with your agreement in concert with your Presence prior to your incarnation on Earth. Everyone’s life’s plan is always set up to serve their higher purpose for being on Earth, especially at this time. Many souls who are presently living on Earth are here because they were seen to have evolved sufficiently to be candidates for their ascension. It was also noted that they would spiritually gain from living during this great Shift in the Ages.
Some of you know that this is your last incarnation in the lower vibrations and some are sensing that it is also time to celebrate even though you may not recall all the lives and the lessons that have prepared you to be where you are now. There will be a review for every soul to ensure that the lessons that needed to be learned have taken place and to ensure that you will not have to go through them again. As an ever-ascending soul, there is always more to learn and you always have new and higher levels to experience.
Know, beloveds, that your future is bright and that you are so greatly appreciated for coming to Earth and for going through all that you have had to go through to reach this point of being invited to move into a much greater partnership with God. You have walked through the many trials and tribulations that the lower vibrations have offered you for your spiritual growth, yet now you can proceed with confidence.
You now have the invitation and the glorious opportunity to fully embody your God Presence. Your goals are now moving into a much stronger alignment with your ascension and these higher goals are being supported by many on the planet and in the heavenly realms. The more you live in conscious partnership with God, the stronger you are as members of a magnificent Group Avatar.
