In the current state of our economy— lost jobs, stressed budgets, and escalating prices—the stress levels for many are out of control. In times such as these, I turn to my teachings from the spirits and try to see the current situation from a greater perspective, a spiritual perspective.
What is the worst thing that can happen? We don't get it right, we don't understand, or we fall flat on our faces? Often we think we are behaving stupidly when it's just that we don't want to look bad or ignorant.
For me, 2012 is the year of actualized ascension. Ascension is greater awareness, the ability to hold higher frequencies of energy in the physical body, higher dimensional thought, and movement away from the old paradigms that left-brain logical analyses have created.
Metaphysical awareness, or spiritual experience, is often difficult to explain or understand while living in a left-brain dominant society. Many times the phrase “woo-woo” is used as a slightly condescending term to describe these events and experiences.
Our awareness of time is something that defines us. When we are young, we can’t wait to be older. When we are old, we wish we were younger. When we are bored, time drags on and on. When we are excited, time flies by.
Each year LightSong, the school and community that I founded, puts on a Spirit Quest practicum. We have since changed locations, but for years the quest was held in Dufur, Oregon, a high desert area with ponderosa pine, dry brush, and harsh conditions. The land is arid and scenic.
“We are the holy angels of God. We will now give you the most powerful words to be given to any mortal. The words are sacred and waiting to be given to the world.” When these words come into your mind, you know they aren’t of your own origin!
Where did we get the idea that we are not enough? Where did we get the idea that we don’t count? Why do we cringe when someone acknowledges something special we did? What makes us not measure up? Who do we think is measuring is? Is it us or is them?
