So you have probably noticed things aren’t going so well on planet earth right now. Nothing and no-one remains untouched by our unprecedented global upheaval as it’s impact takes its toll on our feelings, thoughts, perspectives and experiences and much else besides.
It’s unequivocally all change and unfortunately, the destructive type.
When you unleash a Phoenix however, it’s natural that its devastation precedes any subsequent resurrection and that, I would propose, is the true reason behind the wholesale worldly chaos we’re all experiencing right now.
Imagine, however, the potential: all the planetary possibilities that could arise from said destruction, if we individually and collectively choose to step up and instigate a better way.
On a personal level, each of us has the power to choose our response to what’s going on and which perspective, version of truth, attitude and action we wish to adopt moving forward. If each of us simply decided to model, with integrity, the knowledge, skills and worldly wisdom that we’ve specifically acquired along our life paths, how easy and authentic would it be to create a world in which we all felt we belonged; a world in which we’d all love to live and felt inspired to nurture.
Sounds logical thus far, but here comes the big question… you knew it was coming. How on Earth is that possible?
As humans, as you’ve probably noticed, we’re not always primed to respond and take action and it seems that we fall broadly into one of four categories, a familiar concept to those of you who know something about psychology and how the mind works.
Those who feel powerless to affect any level of change, so don’t even consider it.
Those who feel powerless to affect change, but may nonetheless have thought about it.
Those who know they can affect change, but can’t be bothered; ie; it’s too much effort, so they leave it to someone else.
And those who know they can affect change and actually feel sufficiently inspired to take action. In essence: the few!
If we wish to creating a tipping point with the purpose of ushering in a new global ‘operating’ system, a few, however, is all we need. It only takes about 7% of the world population to start thinking and behaving in the same way to affect global consciousness and generate massive transformative shifts for the whole of humanity.
A small, but increasingly bright light on the horizon of our current global destruction, (that providentially appears not to be a mega nuclear explosion), is the apparent growth in the number of individuals feeling called and willing to explore how they, as individuals, can make their difference in a field of endeavor that inspires them to step out of their comfort zone and live what’s important to them. Each person adding their own personal weight towards achieving that necessary tipping point, moving us closer to a more enlightened planetary state of consciousness.
And when we consider the state of the world today and assess the need to resurrect and reconstruct our failing societies and systems, I think we could say with absolute confidence that we would still welcome an awful lot more hero and heroine role models to wake up and make their own personal contribution right now.
Let’s consider, just for a moment, how many Dragons you have slain, how many insurmountable obstacles, barriers you have overcome, un-scalable walls and mountains you have climbed, indescribably difficult relationships survived, health issues, issues of injustice and financial disasters you have surmounted, and against all the odds
A few, several dozen, a hundred? More?
May I suggest that, the number of dragons that you’ve had to encounter and ‘put to rest’ represents the equivalent amount of immense knowledge and understanding, dare I call it wisdom, you alone are now qualified to share. There is no-one else on this planet who has undergone one of your unique experiences, let alone the full, assorted combination, so perfectly accumulated over time; they’ve now macerated nicely and have melded harmoniously together into your own individual special brew, whether you’re aware of it or not!
As a result, there is only you who is singularly qualified in the world, as a unique crisis overseer and dragon slayer, to do your ‘stuff’ and contribute your own ineffable contribution to the transformation the world is waiting for.
In your dragon slaying process, you automatically (although most likely unconsciously), acquired a specific combination of talents, knowledge and skills that became perfectly honed during your skirmishes and deathly deeds with the wide range and numbers of dragon species: their unforgiving qualities and brutal characteristics, their extreme thickness of skin and ferocity of teeth; all providing you with the terrifying encounters that you alone had to manage and overcome.
Since there appears to be no current advertised role for Dragon Master, you have to be marginally more creative in how you apply your skills and hard won talents.
Do not imagine, however, that there are not many absolutely desperate to acquire the very same skills you have now mastered; as there are hundreds, if not thousands of individuals who would benefit from your uniquely perfected understanding and knowledge hard won through your repeated exploits of dicing with these dangerous beasts.
Which brings me to my final question…
If you belong to that fourth category and are totally serious about playing your part in transforming how life works for all on this exceptional planet, please refer to your own Dragons’ Mastery Handbook.
May I remind you that this is your personal bible: the contents of which have taken you decades of emotional and physical sweat and tears to compile and in which is clearly documented all the vital signs and clues needed to identify your personal gifts, together with your ‘Truth’ that you feel compelled to see expressed in the world.
It is within the much thumbed pages of your own critical Handbook that you will find everything you will ever want or need to know about your unique diplomas and death-defying credentials that you are now here to share with humanity.
Whilst openings might not be advertised, there will be hundreds of miles of zealous apprentices eagerly queuing to learn your own personal lessons of self-mastery, artful ways of managing yourself and others and contributing respectfully, thoughtfully and with innovation a new and better world over that you have perfected through trial and error and that you are now ready to teach.
As a result, many of us are now starting to reconsider what new structures we want to create in our world that work for everyone, as we step through the remnants of our old structures and pathways and feel inspired to dream of new, previously never-before-designed, yet positively respectful ways of living together. We seek to identify where best our uniquely honed knowledge and skills will serve a sensitively and respectfully re-constructed and re-imagined society that benefits all.
So please consult your Dragon Slayers’ Handbook and ask yourself, what knowledge have each of your dragons taught you that you can, in turn, share with others to help them overcome and slay their own personal set of dragons. What can you offer them that they desperately want to know? In this way you can uniquely support others to play a wiser, more respectful and transformative role in the new world we all have a part (and responsibility) in recreating.
What is your unique role that only you can play in this new worldly reconstruction process?

Building trust in yourself requires that you honor and value you. So we ask you:
. How do you feel about you?
. What do you honor and value about you?
. What is it about your gifts and talents that have meaning and value?
. What do you do to love you, to give support to your highest good?
. What are you giving to you so you can be you?
. What keeps you looking outside of you for validation and gratification?
Many of you are still looking outside of yourselves for confirmation that who you are and what you are doing are acceptable and worthwhile.
The mirror exercise reveals deeper aspects of who you are. As you look at your reflection, thoughts and feelings may surface revealing how you have been conditioned.
Close your eyes. Imagine walking down a pathway into your heart and resting comfortably in you.
When you get to this place, breathe deeply three times as follows:
Hold the breath for five seconds.
Release the breath through the throat and mouth with the strong sound of ahhhhh.
After the third time, become fully present, open your eyes, and do the following mirror exercise:
The mirror exercise is best done in the nude. Do this exercise several times during the next week.
1. Stand naked in front of a mirror. Look directly into your eyes for five seconds. Then spend several seconds scanning your body from head to toe. Repeat the breathing exercise.
Looking in your eyes, ask:
. Who am I?
. What am I feeling at this moment?
. What is it about me that I love?
. What is it about me that I am still shaming and judging?
. Can I accept my feelings and have compassion for myself?
. Am I ready to live my life for me?
2. At the end of this exercise, write down what you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror naked.
Many of you may react to this exercise with fear.
Many of you may respond with shame and judgment.
Others of you may enjoy looking at yourselves.
Be with the feelings that come up.
3. Each day after you do this exercise, write down what you shame and judge about yourself and how you feel about it. Make a separate list.
. Who is judging and shaming me?
. Who is not seeing my divine essence?
. Can I accept where I am and where I shame and judge myself?
4. Negative thoughts that shame and judge you are products of your conditioning, what you have been taught. Consider your answers to the above questions. Then ask:
. Whose voices are these?
. What did they teach me?
. Do these teachings resonate for me now?
. Can I accept with compassion where I am in this moment?
. How has my conditioning influenced the relationship I am having with my self?
. How has my relationship with my self influenced my relationships with others?
It is important to use the mirror exercise whenever you shame or judge yourself. It will help you move away from the influences of negative conditioning and will be the jumping-off point for moving toward the life you say you want.
The mirror exercise helps you move to new depths of intimacy within so that you can begin to receive love from yourself.
A good place to begin receiving love from yourself is to begin giving love to your inner wounded child.
. Close your eyes, move into your heart, and imagine your inner wounded child.
. When the child comes to you, look in the child’s eyes for a few moments and be with your
. Ask your inner child, “What do you need in this moment?”
. After the child answers, ask yourself, “Do I love this child enough to give the child what it
needs in this moment?
. This is your opportunity to begin healing your inner child by giving you the love your inner
. Begin to give and receive love from you.
At your next group sharing, share your experience with the mirror exercise, what you learned, and how the experience made you feel.We are leading you to trust that:
. You, fully exposed, are good enough just the way you are.
. The answers to what you need are inside you. Begin giving to yourself what you need.
These BEYOND POWERFUL upgrades and NEW LIGHT ENCODED FREQUENCIES continue to amp up, continue to increase, continue to move us all into a much higher frequency and lighter density plane. More love, more peace, more unity… what does this mean?
This means that anywhere inside of us (cellularly) not fully PURE DIVINE LOVE is activated to emerge for a conscious release. Earth’s ascension means nothing can be suppressed within any Earthly body that does not align with vibrational frequency of our 5th+ Dimensional NEW Earth.
(Click “Read More” Below)
Over our entire human existence, there was much compromise and suppression that we were unaware of. Just BEing in the old Matrix System (Soul’s choice) was suppression/oppression. We all agreed to incarnate/walk-in here to transcend every bit of this fully from within. The RE-AWAKENING of all on Earth is a POWERFUL EXPERIENCE that transitions all from a deep sleep state of amnesia (slumber) into a continual waking one.
This CONTINUAL waking one brings all into a multi-dimensional experience, instead of just “one” linear experience with fixed mentality realities full of constraints, limits and compression, “I want” and “should”.
Unconscious suppression creates distortions, creates separation, creates discord and dis-harmony which play out in our physical body and outer reality world. The way to resolve these distortions is to SEE them and CHOOSE to dismantle/dis-engage them, choose to dissolve them, choose to untangle them and replace them with LOVE. These distortions hold ENERGY and this energy must be dissipated, exercised and released. Transmuting, transforming and collapsing the structures completely can be done from inside with greater ease.
There are geometric structures and mathematical equations for all realities that are invisible to our human’s eyes. As we all open up to our own infinite higher intelligence, our abilities to see/understand are fully RETURNED. Our gifts, abilities and infinite abundance and the knowledge of all of CREATION returns too. All of this comes forth naturally as we open our own HEARTS FULLY and choose to ALLOW ourselves to EXPERIENCE these abundance of GIFTS from inside…
At first, exiting the unconscious Matrix System is beyond challenging, especially for all who were deeply embedded (like me and many others). It triggers every fear, every lack, every doubt (suppressed energy)… and the foundation of our whole reality WE BUILT through the blood, sweat and tears of hard, dedicated work. The entire process of Exiting that Matrix is a transitional one that requires our participation through our hearts… It’s dis-en-heart-ening at first, disconcerting and beyond confusing as to how/why… and for many TRUST is completely gone. We have to re-build all new realities from a new trust and faith inside through re-establishing a connection that may have been visibly gone.
This is beyond challenging for awhile. It goes against everything we thought we knew. If we cannot hold it in our hands or physically see it with our eyes, we don’t believe it…. and believing in INVISIBLE REALITIES (Energetic) ones, doesn’t make once ounce of logical sense at all… Our heart has to be open fully for us to even start to understand.
THE ASCENSION OF OUR EARTH INTO MULTI-DIMENSIONALITY
As humans, we don’t have a choice. We have to wake up. Many of us did this kicking & creaming and holding on with every ounce of energy we had. This evolutionary process is occurring and continually increasing vibrationally, whether we want to believe it or not. Our REALities are re-structuring for all to “leave old earth”, vibrationally, in order to “arrive” on NEW Earth to return to an existence of UNITY and LOVE. Our heads don’t believe, but our hearts do. Opening our hearts to believe and re-establish “lost trust” is accomplished through intentional processes, tests, initiations and applying new practices that we would not have even considered before.
Bringing those walls of protection down, opening our hearts to be seen, vulnerable and exposed, scares the living hell out of us strong ones and JUDGMENT enters in… what will “others think or say”, what will “I look like”. New realizations bring us to a state of “who cares?!” We come to realize we are not to hold ourselves to the small-minded judgments of “others”, as they only reflect back what we “think” inside… so when we go inside and realize that WE LOVE AND ACCEPT OURSELVES just as we ARE… then it doesn’t matter what “outside says” (and we get to embrace our CRAZY, be FREE and have some fun!).
We feel FREE from the INVISIBLE CONSTRAINTS and we REALize that we can BELIEVE anything we DESIRE. Freedom, happy, joy and peace HOLD MORE REALNESS than unhappy constraints of our own insistent and imposing minds…
Where there is pure peace and love inside, then this is what we experience in our own world. This is what we desire, create, allow and we NOTICE when something does not align with this. Where there is anything less, it will become visible through feeling and experience.
Moving into a higher vibration doesn’t mean pretending to be happy or “trying” to be happy, it means realizing when we are not, being totally honest with ourselves and then intentionally SHIFTING THE ENERGY INTENTIONALLY so that unhappy energy is allowed to “go” in order to be replaced with happy energy, once our cells release and our body’s template clears and re calibrates itself to tune our physical body to a higher frequency. WE do this…
When you surround yourself with nature and peaceful things, when you surround yourself with that which feeds your spirit/soul, with that which inspires and creates MORE LOVE, more inspiration, more commUNITY, more peace, more exquisiteness, then you CHANGE THE STRUCTURE of your reality, mathematically/geometrically… you activate your higher consciousness DNA and deactivate your unconscious DNA programming that was previously prominent, which gives you the power to shift vibrationally with your whole body, in order to experience all new timelines and realities that support your highest existence here.
That energy has to go somewhere… We can allow it to dissolve, dissipate and clear our cellular body consciously if we are present and fully conscious when we start to feel it emerge inside…
Transcending all things through love from within. The moment our heart fully opens, our minds lose the ability to maintain control. Sitting with your heart fully open you can observe like never before. You can SEE what you could not see, new realizations that bring you awarenesses and a new power too. Inner COURAGE becomes POWER, is profound and it’s birthed as we FACE the things we didn’t want to see before, with NEW EYES and NEW EXPANDED PERSPECTIVES, when we release the battle and duality inside, the fight, the “against” energy. In UNITY ONENESS LOVE there is no “against” anymore… all Duality dissolves and new awarenesses give us the POWER to shift vibrationally into a SPACE of love, acceptance of all that has already occurred and is viewed through our own lens of reality… Shift the view, shift the perspective. Look at it from every perspective. Keep expanding until you can SEE multiple perspectives, purposes and what you gained from that/what it taught you, what was really going on (instead of what you “thought) and how that applies to RIGHT NOW… how does it dictate your current MOMENT NOW… WHERE the TRUTH ABOUT THAT is the STORY you now tell yourself according to the version of the way you look at it…
QUANTUM SHIFTING REALITIES
This is a natural ability that we all have access to when we expand our own consciousness and tune into the ENERGY OF ALL from within. This allows us to shift vibrational timelines easily and instantly here. Quantum is non-linear, has no cords, no boundaries and can do anything it desires. When you shift into your MULTI-DIMENSIONAL QUANTUM STATE, then you are no longer bound by the limits or constructs of unconscious programs or realities anymore. When you realize that you can make up a NEW STORY about “that”, one that FREES YOU COMPLETELY (and all others too), you not only have the POWER to dissipate the energy that held that in place, you can shift timelines and EFFECT your FUTURE… and converge all into this SPACE and re-shape it however you desire to create a whole new reality by activating one that you DO DESIRE to start to materialize when you achieve that vibration fully from inside and with your ENTIRE BEING. Your Higher Mind is beyond POWERFUL, as it gives you the ability to bend, stretch and completely re-shape all. Presence with your whole BEing, every cell vibrating at this highest frequency, gives you the POWER to activate higher timelines to materialize into physical form. As YOUR HIGHEST SELF, your abilities are not infinite. Your heart, mind and whole body must synchronize to this highest vibration for you to achieve this MASTERY SKILL that allows you to AFFECT matter and Materialize it into form. Basically all you are doing is access the other dimensions & timelines where this has already occurred. Your human mind cannot do this. It doesn’t have access. Your higher-heart-universal mind does.
Once you have achieved this natural gift then your access as an Intentional Creator will return. ♥
Everyone has these abilities when their heart is fully open again. To our human it’s a Super Power. To us it’s just how all works naturally here. BEing a UNIFIED LIGHT BEING, returns all of your amazing super powers and gifts. Why would you ever want to be a limited human ever again?
NEW Earth has a Crystalline Matrix that is intricate, beyond intelligent and operates through/from PURE SOURCE LIGHT. This PURE SOURCE LIGHT is activated in each one of us each time our hearts open and we REVERSE ENGINEER all unconsciousness to bring all into FULL CONSCIOUSNESS again.
Old Earth was a Matrix that was binding, limited and oppressed. It was birthed through unconsciousness and an programming that maintained a state of AMNESIA, keeping all bound by realities that only had a limited view. The complete dissolving of this Matrix system (in 2015), means that all realities built upon those unconscious foundations/structures are now being re-structured for all. These immense advanced light encodements deliver NEW EXQUISITENESS for everyone ready to EMBRACE this fully from within.
NEW Earth’s Crystalline Matrix operates very differently so it takes much getting use to “the opposite” of what we once knew. Realities constantly change & shift. All new ways, all new processes, all new everything… we have to learn everything all over again. As our old everything “dies” and passes over to cross the RAINBOW BRIDGE of NEW EARTH, our new selves are birthed/reborn (continually, forego the expanding bodies). Christed Consciousness activates our personal Crystalline Structures and new functioning systems to start to evolve, shape, form… this activates our StarGate System to activate as we EXIST as the UNIFIED FIELD of Purity and Love. This Pure Divine Love that we ARE activates our encoded DNA, activates new codes and sequences in our own Field of Super Consciousness to begin a continual re-coding/re-calibration process that constantly improves upon itself. It’s a beyond INTELLIGENT SYSTEM that only needs us to be fully conscious and to function from this place all of the time. Our ability to MAINTAIN FULL CONSCIOUSNESS means that we have it easier, it’s simple and there’s no more suffering or lack anymore. The new foundation is ENERGETIC. It’s comprised of PURE love, deep sacred everything… respect, honor, integrity, kindness, compassion, contribution, sharing, support, harmony, serenity, joy, peace, creation, inspiration, freedom, abundance and equality… all emanating out from within. BEing these alchemic energies gives each the Quantum Ability to re-create realities in accordance with the codes and sequences of each’s soul.
OUR EARTHLY BODIES, EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL PAIN
Physical/Earthly Bodies = Density of particle matter taking physical form these ultra high frequency light waves move through our body structures and create a re-structuring process on a sub-atomic level.
The higher the dimensional plane of existence, the lighter the density, the more expansive, the more space inside (and the bigger our bodies get to hold/process this amount of light).
Weight and density are very different thing. Size is not indicative. How packed ones cells are into a physical space with the ability/inability to move freely will dictate this. Every part of the body is a part of this and has a different role/function in one’s ability to become fully multi-dimensional again.
As our Bodies awaken, this density begins to change. Encoded Photonic Light works through our bodies and activates our Higher Consciousness DNA to start a physical body re-configuration process that takes years (and has actually been occurring since we entered human/Earthly bodies here). 2012 blew the lid off of this process to move us all into continual expediting processes. Out of linear and into non-linear processes that occur continually to raise our physical vibration of our molecular bodies. These encodements activate our atomic/molecular body to constantly change geometrics within each individual cell. Our bodies continue to come alive as our PURE SOUL integrates fully. Our Soul is Pure Source Light Consciousness. Everything else we experience is separation/unconscious programming held deep within. The activation of this light activates a cellular cleanse.
FEELING all of the mental/emotional/physical (ego) suppression as our Physical BODIES COME ALIVE/wake up/come online through the expansion of CONSCIOUSNESS on a cellular level through the formation of NEW Earth Gridwork within our own physical body systems is a natural part of this evolutionary process as well. WE didn’t want to FEEL before, we wanted to avoid, hide, ignore, pretend and this embedded in our physical bodies and as our bodies start to awaken, they start to FEEL everything fully. Our synapses and neural networks carry massive amounts of highly charged electromagnetic frequency energy that produces Quantum Energy (and Plasma Energy) to activate our Crystalline LightBody to constantly integrate these immense light codes that increase substantially 24/7 now. Pain is the body feeling and a release. It’s the human body opening up on a cellular level, awakening and attempting to repair itself naturally and organically and through the infusion of highly intelligent light. Pain is a response to what we held deep inside and it’s the body coming alive again. If we honor this, understand this, assist this, support this through natural ways, our bodies can do what they need easier. If we listen to our bodies, honor our bodies, get plenty of sleep to integrate the heavy/foggy/groggy photonic light, get out in nature, relax and focus on assisting our bodies in raising it’s frequency through conscious release, then our bodies can tune energetically themselves.
For many of us we held out until things with our bodies were critical and returning our bodies to vibrancy was an huge process within itself. We were stubborn, deep asleep and we didn’t understand. We didn’t love or respect our bodies/ourselves. The “damage” we did was huge. We had to let go of the judgment and focus our energy on supporting our bodies by listening to what they told us they needed. Love, sleep, respect, nature, natural support and lots of nurturing, kindness and care. For some of us “the brink of death” was necessary (often repeatedly) to dissolve our own insistence, ignorance, refusal and fight against a process that didn’t make logical sense. Luckily, our Soul can take over and repair our bodies for us if we will surrender our human’s fight to maintain control by holding on to our old ways out of fear. The moment we truly CARE ENOUGH TO OPEN UP FULLY is the moment everything begins to shift.
This is a purification and unification process of all of your existences. All converge and culminate here. This is why so many are still going through deep karmic cleansings. Every dimensional timeline must be fully cleared. Galactic, Akashic Records, Relationship, Earth, LeMUrian, Atlantean, all of them… this existence is where they all have converged. This moment, this space… this is where you UNIFY all BACK INTO THE PURITY OF LOVE again.
RE-EDUCATION THROUGH HIGHEST CONSCIOUSNESS
… is necessary for all to understand and release the resistance and fight from within. We have to actually CARE ENOUGH about the world we live in, those around us and ourselves. We have to Care enough to step-up to BE THE ONE doing what is necessary to make a difference, to support each other, to share the knowledge and resources that TRANSFORM and UNITES all of HUmanity here. WE have to be willing to let the separation inside go, to dissolve our own ego, resistance to LOVE and be willing to exit the old matrix system and choose to not live from fear and survival modes still. We have to stop making excuses, complaining (lack of inner power), blaming and putting our hope and trust in “that outside” to change/save us. We have to be willing to do the work, come together and take responsibility for every action and the energy that creates. We have to BE THE ONE that does it and shows all others the Way, we have to open up to share our hearts fully and exist from a place of deep gratitude and appreciation for all that we do have so that we can call forth more. We have to be the kind ones, the generous ones, the ones who don’t sit around waiting before we act. We are the ones that dictate realities vibrationally… for every reality returns vibrationally exactly what we transmit out…
As humans we are not aware of what programs are in our cellular bodies. When we observe with an open heart & mind, we get to see this… We must elevate and expand our consciousness beyond the current dimension/reality in order to truly see. As we open our hearts we TUNE IN VIBRATIONALLY to the sounds, the smells, the feeling of everything. Our senses are enhanced through the UNIFIED FIELD OF CONSCIOUSNESS and these vibrations can be heard/seen/felt with our EXTRA-SENSORY GIFTS… Things are only confusing when we disconnect ourselves from this.
This huge passageway is beyond powerful. The blasting frequencies that we’ve waited for to move us all into much higher dimensional timelines are here. Since 2012, we’ve been expediting and this continues to amplify every day/moment/month that we go. This August’s Convergence after the 8/8/8 Lion’s Gateway is a mega-shift for us all. Individually and collectively. This Solstice is just one passageway. We continually have many concurrently running at the same time. Take your pick. It never stops. Our “job” is to integrate and anchor it in our physical as Intentional Gridkeepers and Gatekeepers here.
We all signed on for this and at times it can be beyond challenging for our human aspect that’s trying to keep up, trying to manage, trying to handle it all. It’s not meant to be easy for our human, it’s meant to be easy as a Soul. The more we all Embody, the easier this gets, until all of the struggle and fight is gone. No more pain, no more sick, no more doing without or lack. No more suffering. That was created by our unconscious states. Being fully conscious eliminates all of that. ♥
Unite through Love… Intentionally dissolve all separation from within. Come together and realize that this starts with you/each one of us. Remember the bigger picture…
Your soul has been the overseer of your life experiences from the start; before your first breath so many moons ago. It has divinely planned each occurrence, each triumph, and each setback, your moments of bliss, and your moments of perceived pain. You may ask, “why does my soul want to see me suffer?”
Dear sweet one, if it was not for these moments of pain, hurt, or anger, we wouldn’t understand true, unconditional love, or be able to reach the most authentic version of ourself. These instances are merely stepping stones in the pursuit to discovering your true self. You are a spiritual being that has been made for, by, and through pure unequivocal, unconditional love.
Our higher self, and/or other members of our soul family, who come to us camouflaged, by pain, are just as important as those whom we love and look to for support and guidance. They are NOT charged with the responsibility of sustaining you, or embracing you, per se, but with delivering a lesson. They come to challenge you… they are here to help you evolve in the multidimensional splendor you were designed to be. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what unconditional love truly is.
At the time, such moments that resonate as regret (only deciphered as such by the ego) are merely the Souls attempt at teaching us pure unconditional love; one that can only be achieved through a multitude of “life lessons”. The more we can redirect our low vibrational responses of these painful encounters into healing and acceptance, the more we will cultivate a self mastery that will assist us in our spiritual development; ultimately our ascension process.
Hence, why it’s so important to connect to your higher self. We are all given the gift of psychic sight – everyone. We just got to connect. You must unlearn to learn! You must deactivate in order to activate. Each of those genetic strands will soon open up and act like a spiraling staircase toward home – ascension bound.
It’s important to understand “ascension” isn’t just a single act, it doesn’t operate like a switch. Rather, its an ongoing pursuit to achieving your full spiritual potential, becoming the master of your destiny, and the architect of your dreams. For the only responsibility we have in this lifetime, in any lifetime for that matter, is in fact, and without question – our destiny! It goes without saying, the only true investment that keeps paying out a dividend lifetime after lifetime, is undoubtedly the investment we make in ourselves, in our spirituality. Nothing else will transcend past that of the akashic records, and nothing will leave with us, except the love we gain and grow in this very moment, and the knowledge we inherit along our journey.
Here’s something I have always held onto, that has comforted me in the most trying, and arduous times in my existence…
Remember, The hardest decision we have ever made, and will ever have to make in this lifetime… Is to have been born now, in this very moment, this very lifetime, as a human being, on this planet we call earth. We knew how hard it was going to be – yet we still decided to make the soul contract to come here! That means whatever it is we are facing, we cannot become fatalists.
Nothing can defeat us! We have the ability to persevere through all hardships, trials and tribulations! Despite such intense pain we will be triumphant! For we are all stronger than we seem, and braver than we believe. If you able to transmute regret into life lessons through the ability to forgive, you can undoubtedly make it through any adversity and hardship. If you don’t already know, each of us here, all of mankind, are cosmic warriors. Our mission is to not find LOVE, but rather live in the truth that we are LOVE. Remember, LOVE must start from within oneself, before it can be given to all else.
From the Archangelic Realm of Michael this is Michael and We welcome you as you move deeper into the depth and breadth of your heart and open to the grandness of self to move out into the world in the grandness of self. We come to you at this important time and ask you to take a look back.
We also ask you take out a pad and pen and at the top write down, “It is Not About Me” and then make a list of your intentions. If you have taken the oath to move into We Consciousness we ask you to look in the mirror. When the mirror faces you and you look into it might you see that what is reflected back may be where you may have made it all about you? Are you truly in We Consciousness? This a period of time where you could look at all the aspects of self that surfaced within you. If in fact you are moving into We Consciousness it is time to take a deeper look at what is being revealed to you in the mirror. Look dear ones at where you still may be making everything about you and may not know it because you are in a blind spot. At this time this is very important as you move into We Consciousness.
So We ask you to close your eyes and ask yourself, “Am I still making it about me?”
Then ask this: “When the mirror from my brethren and others reflects back to me, can I look at where I still might be making it about me? Am I open to receive this?”
If you are moving into your heart space and opening to receive love to refine and define yourself on your pathway to self-mastery this is a vital step in We Consciousness. If it is important for you to master the self, then when in We Consciousness, it is important to allow the mirror to reflect back to you what needs to be refined and defined. There is no judgement and shame with this dear ones. It may simply be a mere suggestion for you to look at where the narcissism of the me is still involved that is based upon your wounds and old defense patterns.
This refine-ment and define-ment process is to look at where you still may be in the narcissism of the me so you can see this and bring it to the fore. Have your feelings that come up within you when the mirror reflects back to you what you may not see in your blind spot.
All of this is based in the narcissism of the me and in your old wounds. Dear ones it is not “all about me”.
After you do this write down your intentions that is based on manifestation. What do you intend to manifest both personally and in your endeavors.
Your portals of energy will be opening to guide those who are committed in the idealistic theory of We Consciousness. Look at the idealistic concept of we consciousness. If you are walking the path of the light worker and way shower it is about embodying and being We Consciousness. This is why We suggested to look into the mirror to see if there is a blind spot where the narcissism of the me is still in effect where you make it all about you. There will be five specific multi-dimensional energies from fifth dimensional sources that will move in to guide and support those who made the choice and taken the oath to move into we consciousness.
What We are bringing you at this time is the first step in refining and defining to bring you to a greater awareness and consciousness of yourself as you begin to move into We Consciousness. You are therefore human and from time to time move into blind spots. When someone may simply bring to the fore your blind spot, how does this make you feel? Are you reacting? And based upon your conditioning may think you are being judged and shamed, doing it right or wrong, this way or that way, either/or? This process is a part of We
Consciousness. For those who intend to make others aware of their blind spot it is important to be aware as to how to communicate it so it can be received by another in their open heart with love. Since you are committed to move into We Consciousness it is important to be aware of this.
Most of our messages will now be geared toward We Consciousness. We have brought many teachings to you and most of them have been guiding you to self realization consciousness through exercises, lessons and messages. In many ways you have reached the capacity of these teachings. It is now about implementing these teachings, messages, lessons and exercises. So We will come to you with how you can begin to implement the teachings within yourself and giving them to the masses. We have just given you the first “How To” step to implement we consciousness by making your list and seeing if you still make it about you.
As these five multi-dimensional energies move into your earthly plain they will form a high vibrational energetic corridor that will support and guide you into We Consciousness. Fifth dimensional energies will more readily join and remain with you in the third dimension. Fifth dimensional beings are now moving into your third dimension, And based upon the individuals resonance and vibration, some will be able to see these beings and some will interact with them. This will happen at specific vortexes on your earthly plain and you might be called to a vortex to join with these beings. This is all based upon your resonance and vibration to connect with these beings and energies on your earthly plain. Some of you may see them in the physical form. Some may connect with them energetically in their heart space and with a knowingness that they are connected in the form of the third dimension. These energies will reside in the new form in your third dimension that is community, harmony and equality and we consciousness.
We have come to you with the We Consciousness Conversations and called them conversations because We included you. So We ask you:
Are you having conversations when you are giving your endeavors and your modalities?
Are you including others?
Are you still standing at the pulpit and telling everyone what you know?
This is based upon your wounds.
As We conclude at this time, We now let you know that specific multi-dimensional portals will be opening. It will be a combination of star realms including those of the Arcturian and Pleiadian star realms. A portal from the Inter-Galactic Federation will open that will guide, support and in many ways protect those who have chosen to open to the being-ness in their heart space to do this work. We use the word protection not as a defense mechanism for what you may think may be out there to circumvent your pathway.
No Dear Ones, this is a protection of love, peace and equality. It is an intention. Two additional portals will open. One from the Orion Star system that will contain various messages. The Arcturian portal will be a streamlined masculine energy. The Pleiadian portal will be a balance of the masculine and feminine energies. These energies will ground the entire portal. The Arcturian and Pleiadian portals will balance the male and female energies. The Inter-Galactic energy will move directly down the center. What will form will be a five pointed portal.
The Inter-Galactic energy will move down in the center to hold the portal in place. On the upper right will be the Pleiadian energy. The lower left will be the Arcturain energy. The upper left will be the Orion energy and the lower right will be the Lemurian energy. These energies will balance each other. It will be a five sided star where four sides will intersect through the middle where the Inter Galactic Federation energy will be. The four energies will combine in the middle and surround the individual moving on the pathway as the way shower and light worker. These energies will work in concert with each other thus forming a fifth dimensional We Consciousness.
So as We take out leave We ask you, “Is it still all about you?”

Over the past decade or so, it’s become clear to me that there are four steps most entrepreneurs need to go through to have their marketing feel good (to themselves and potential clients) and to be effective.
My goal in this letter is to help you understand a bit more about how I see marketing in an overall sense (for what it’s worth), see if I’m a fit to help you and help you to clarify your own understanding of marketing (much more important).
Step 1: Marketing 101
The first step is to get a basic understanding of marketing.
Most conscious entrepreneurs are a bit allergic to marketing. They don’t like it and what it stands for.
And, being real, they’d rather just do their work and have someone else handle the marketing for them.
To make matters worse, they’re usually too close to their own business to see their situation clearly.
But worst of all, they have no idea how to market their business in a way that gets them more of the kinds of clients they want, without spending a fortune to do it (or selling their soul). This results in so much confusion and frustration.
So, step one is just about getting a basic education and context of how marketing can be done in a new way.
If you check out my blog, you’ll see that there are around 500 posts on this site but I wanted to sit down and write you a letter to ensure that you were directed to what I feel are the dozen or so most foundational, important and essential things you could learn that could make the biggest difference in your marketing.
But where to start in learning a new way of marketing?
We live, increasingly, in a fast-food world. Everything has become rushed, instant and lightning quick. And that’s affected our expectations. We think marketing should give us instant results too. We want to be able to press a few buttons and immediately have more clients. And it’s hardly our fault, it’s what we’re being promised constantly: instant results, a flood of clients, six figures quickly.
And, while I also know and teach some ‘fast marketing‘ ideas, those are only the tip of the marketing iceberg. I believe that the vast majority of our marketing must be slow. Because that’s how life ultimately works. Marketing tends to be seen as the conquest of ‘space’ – dominating more and more geographic area, owning more niches, growing our business wider and wider. But marketing must also happen over time. And go deep. As Gandhi said, ‘there is more to life than simply increasing its speed.’ I believe that slow marketing is, ultimately, more human, longer lasting, more effective and more profitable.
Once you have a basic grasp of the heart of how marketing can work and be different, you need to make some choices about who you are trying to reach (even though it’s tempting to want to try and reach everyone).
And this takes us to the primary question of identifying your niche.
I believe that the only agenda that works the desire to know the truth of whether or not what you’re offering is a genuine fit for the potential client.
If your agenda is to ‘get the sale’ you will push them. If the agenda is for them to ‘like you’ then you will collapse. If your agenda is for them to ‘respect and value you’ then you will posture. If your agenda is only to see if there’s a real fit between you two then you will be composed.
But all of that lifts up the questions, ‘Do you really know who would be a perfect fit for you as a client?’
Over the years, I’ve found that our deepest wounds and struggles are often a doorway into our most truest niches. And that there’s a single question you can ask yourself that seems to help people find it faster than anything I know. I think that niching can heal you.
Step 3: Clarifying Your Platform
The confused mind says ‘no’.
In marketing, the most important goal is clarity.
If people aren’t clear what you do or who you help or what you’re about, they just won’t hire you.
Clarity is power in marketing and most entrepreneurs I meet are only 10% as clear as they could be.
And the most important thing to get clear about is what you want to be known for.
Your platform is what you’re known for. It’s the DNA of your business. It’s the blueprints you build everything from. And it’s the heart of whether your business comes across clearly and authentically to others. The challenge with most people’s platforms is that they are flat, uninspiring, confusing and occasionally feel really gross. They’re often one dimensional. You want your platform to be crystal clear but with some depth. There are six elements of a strong platform (plus a new thought I’ve been having about identifying your message) and most entrepreneurs only ever focus on one (almost always the same one). I believe that one of the most useful exercises you can do is to sum up your platform in a single page.
At the heart of marketing, you’re offering people a journey from Island A (where they don’t want to be) to Island B (where they’re craving to be). Sometimes you’re also offering them Island C (a new, brighter possibility they might have never considered). And sometimes you’ll need to be aware of their Island Z (the fears that keep them from even looking at their issue). Your business is like the boat that takes them from one island to the other. But the reason they want to get on your boat has a lot to do with your map and the route you plan from one island to the other – your point of view. And what will inspire them to work with you is when they get the deeper cause and bigger vision that your business is about that they share.
That’s the heart of it: ‘I can take you on this journey from one island to another’. If they trust that you can do that better than anyone else, they will hire you and buy from you.
But all most entrepreneurs do is talk about how fancy their boat is and try to push everyone to get on board.
When your platform is clear, the rest of marketing becomes so incredibly easy for you.
But, when it’s fuzzy, expect to struggle.
But as this gets clearer, you’re ready for the final step . . .
Step 4: Becoming a Hub
It’s one thing to know what you’d like to be known for and it’s another thing to actually be known for those things.
There’s the old saying that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.
But, I’d take it a step further: it’s who knows what you know.
The idea of becoming a hub is to become like the hub of a wheel – where all the spolks connect. You become the center of a certain community, the trusted advisor or got to person.
That’s the idea.
The goal is to make it really easy to find you and safe to approach you. Most businesses actually make it very hard to be found and hard for people to spread the word. You want to make it almost impossible to miss you.
Your paths are the ways people find you (e.g. social media, ads, PR, networking, speaking, writing etc.).
And the clearest way I know to use paths effectively so that your ideal clients can find you is to identify your hubs. There are some videos you can watch on this too. Using hubs in your marketing is what I call warm marketing. Trying to convince total strangers to pay you money is what I call cold marketing. And cold marketing doesn’t work very well. Warm marketing, the strategic use of hubs, works very well.
Word of mouth will always be the most powerful force in marketing and so focusing your efforts on delighting your existing clients is, hands down, the best long term strategy (watch some videos here). But some people are much more connected and respected than others. Clearly a raving endorsement from a client of yours who no one really knows or likes will not have as much impact as someone like Oprah Winfrey endorsing you. Oprah is a powerful hub. But, in your city, industry and niche there are hubs too. You can do ‘cold’ marketing all day long (e.g. cold calls, direct mail, bill boards etc.) but it won’t be a fraction as effective as what I call ‘warm’ marketing where you are introduced to your ideal clients by others (hubs).
Being a hub is like being a host. You’re inviting people into you space. Which means we need to talk about something I call, your container. Most entrepreneurs overlook this. Once people find you . . . then what? You must make it safe for people to approach you and want to engage with you. You must make it really easy for them to get to know you at their own pace. This often means giving them some free samples of your work like the pink spoons you might find at an ice cream shop. But, like the ice cream shop, you can’t only give out pink spoons. You need to sell ice cream in single, double and triple scoops. You need to sell buckets and ice cream cakes. A yoga studio needs free classes to attract students but also drop ins, monthly passes, weekend retreats and teacher trainings. On your website, it’s vital to have some ‘free gifts‘ that you can offer people so they can get to know you without having to opt in to anything.
The container is about your business being safe to approach but also sustainable for you. If the paths are like water faucets and water is more clients and money then your container is like a bucket, and most entrepreneurs have a very unattractive and leaky bucket.
Daily Angel Oracle Card: Saint Germain, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses
Saint Germain: “Karma Releasing”
“Move beyond drama. Create your own path. Make room for good energy.”
About Saint Germain: “Saint Germain was born in France in the 18th century and is said to have been given a new identity because he was the love child of two very powerful people. He was well educated and able to rub shoulders with royalty. He was also deeply interested in magic, alchemy and the cosmos and able to perform real-life miracles and turn lead into gold. Now he helps us move beyond social limitations to connect with the right people for the highest good. He is still a master alchemist and able to help us turn whatever is leaden in our life into something that is golden. His twin flame is Lady Portia, and he is the keeper of the violet flame, the powerful etheric retreat where we can release karma.
Extended Message From Saint Germain: “Karma is the spiritual law of cause and effect. We experience many levels of karma. Some we inherit from our family and some from the people we keep helping out of the problems they keep creating. Saint Germain is here now to clear your energy so that you no longer have the weight of the world, or your loved ones, on your shoulders. Be aware that an old pattern is leaving your life and creating space for something more loving to enter. Visualize yourself surrounded by a fiery violet cloak to release all the karma you no longer need.”*
~ By Kyle Gray
We get stuck in old programming, just like a computer that hasn’t been updated or upgraded. Some of these old programs are cultural, passed along to us over the generations through family belief systems; some are societal, passed on to us as we grow up and attend schools and interact with others in our community. Some are belief systems that we adapt due to trauma, pain or hurt that we have experienced during this lifetime; things that we hold on to that we think will protect us in the future from similar events and feelings.
It’s time to let all that old programming go. It’s all outdated, completely obsolete. By holding on to it, we are staying stuck, we can’t see beyond it in to the endless possibility on offer. When we realize that we have been stuck, stagnant (think that little wheel turning and turning on your computer when it is taking forever to load… or when you go to update and realize that your whole system needs to be upgraded in order to do so!)
So how do we release this stuff? We change our reality, one thought at a time. We make new and different choices. We refuse to repeat patterns. We open ourselves up to something new; open hearts and open minds. A new person, a new experience, a new perspective. We get out of our comfort zone. We make our own decisions instead of relying on others. We decide, right now, that things are about to change, big time. And then we follow through with that intention.
One choice, one decision, one reaction at a time. Until everything around us changes with us. And things are no longer the same.
These ever-increasing levels of light are truly Divine. The waves of Divine harmony are such a very natural, peaceful energy. It is easy to dissolve right into them now; an indication of our vibrational match. Geometric patterns and frequencies within your energy fields match or *catch* the incoming light rays, and your consciousness expands with their pure presence. Amazing.
Alignment with the vibration of Divine Self, and the ability to hold that vibration in your energy fields attracts more, more, more. Those of you who are initiated and prepared for embodiment have unique patterns of the Cosmic Christ within your energy fields. It has become part of you, integrated, and now you are experiencing the reorganization of your consciousness to complement the Divine choice and Divine service at this level.
More on the Cosmic Template
Many of the stages and symbols of how-to-tell if you are embodying the Solar Cosmic Christ template/I AM template were shared last week in a conversation with Lauren Galey. Listen to the video version if you are interested in that material. Half of my notes didn’t make it into the broadcast, however we did well in the allotted timeframe.
This powerful energy coming in right now, the force of Source, feels comforting and expansive, blissful and strong, ecstatic and still all at once. This is why we did so much work on clearing out the lower levels of Self. When the Higher Self – which is also merging with higher beingness (as above so below) – takes command of the journey, what is complementary to the Higher true Self will be rewritten to align with the sacred patterns of the Christ consciousness, and that which does not complement the higher state of consciousness dissolves. This is a natural part of this kind of Ascension process, and you have experienced this to a limited degree. As the Team said last year, You haven’t seen anything yet. Now we understand what that was about. Things are getting very different, very quickly on the Path.
The final Equinox-Blood Moon Gateway is in motion. You are capable of moving into an accelerated phase which unifies you with all layers of the I AM Templates, set in place for this phase of Ascension, and fully activated for use upon Gaia. The more Light Servers engaging with them, in a path of harmony, balance and Divine Love, the faster the Shift in external systems will unfold for all. There are (not surprisingly) many anxieties being used to distract the collective; remember your higher service, beloveds.
While there are opportunities beyond the cosmic oversoul of the Divine Human, the focus for this particular passage of global Ascension is embodiment. This is why you are experiencing radical new sensations in your consciousness, skills, and awareness right now. Higher wisdom flows, inner knowing is ignited, and the great cosmic merge is on.
Initiates and Transcendence
The classical steps of the initiate are a path of engaging with cosmic templates. This spiritual path has been anchored by thousands. Anchoring means active, conscious, lucid awareness of the energies, the journey and its purpose. As mentioned in the discussion last week on Mystery School parallels, these cosmic templates need to be lived out in people’s lifestreams in order to serve the Galactic purpose of this experiment of separation and reunification with Source. The Divine qualities of the Human genome are now ready to be revealed on a very large scale.
In addition to the Mystery School parallels shared last week regarding the final stages of Ascension/Resurrection, it may be good to note the levels of initiation in classic study. Some of you will find the reflection in your own lifestreams, or the lives of those walking the path with you. For those unfamiliar with these principles, it may assist in understanding what is about to be accomplished. I find them akin to Way Shower and Gatekeeper roles.
In (very) brief summation, the traditional stages of an Initiate’s path are:
1. Entering into a deep state of self-examination and observation
2. Spiritual study and passionate engagement with a spiritual path
3. Service work: Getting out and respectfully, humbly sharing with the collective what you learn
4. Heart center illumination, higher sense evolution
5. Become a representative of the collective
6. Sun God: Connect to the forces of the SUN as a conduit, receiving knowledge from/through the SUN, as a fractal representation of the Source consciousness represented in the Solar light, the Christened state
7. Source unification: Connecting with all of creation, merging with pure Source Light beingness
Again these are steps anchored over thousands of years, with different terms and belief systems in many schools of spiritual study, which we utilize as stepping stones to full Self-realization. Our modern-day Ascension may feel different from our attempts at embodiment in the past, because we have so many factors involved at a Galactic level. We were practicing, training for the Shift all this time. Setting our acquired wisdom into texts, teachings, and the collective mind – in order to arrive here at the Shift, engage with the intel and ultimately transcend it.
Many of the classical phases may feel familiar – or quite direct for Masters – and you may recognize the memory of your past journeys welling up to the surface. (Litmus test: Tears of gratitude are a clear sign of revelation). Cellular memory activates codes within your blood and bones during this phase of Ascension. It is best to observe the memories and not cling to them as they come up. They are holographic imprints to assist the Higher Self in stepping forth, unifying all of the journeys here in order to transform them. As always, this is on behalf of the collective project of Ascension.
Solar Cosmic Christ templates are Universal, however the individual expression is unique. This may be challenging through the Equinox when various levels of consciousness upgrades are taken into the physical form. Regardless of external judgment or perceptions, we embody the True Self. There is tremendous support available for this transformation.
When I first encountered those words in Conversations with God-Book 1, I remember thinking, “Wait a minute! That’s exactly the opposite of what all religions teach. Religions teach that even before you ask, you will be answered. They teach that God is ready, willing, and able to fulfill all of our desires, if we will but ask. And they teach that if God does not grant us our wishes and answer our prayers, it is because of some higher good or reason, and that we must have faith in God to know what that is.”
“These are the things that religions teach, and now here comes CwG saying “you may not have what you want.”
Can this be true?
Yes. And it is.
As CwG explains, “wanting” something is an admission that it is not now there. And this admission is what makes that true for us. For Life is exactly what we say it is. It is exactly what we think it is. It is exactly how we act that it is. Our thoughts, words and actions not only describe life, but create it.
If we are saying, “I want more money,” for instance, we are actually making a declaration to the Universe. This is an announcement of what is true for you.
Think of it this way: imagine that the word “I” is the magic word that let’s the genie out of the bottle. Whatever you say after the word “I” is an announcement. It is a declaration. It is you, saying what is true for you. And in God’s Universe, your word is law.
So if you think that you want more money, that is the result you will produce. You will want more money.
If you say “I want more money in my life,” the Universe will merely echo, “Yes.” The Universe will merely declare, “because you have said it, so be it.”
That is what the Universe declares after everything you say. If you say, “I’m sick and tired of this or that,” the Universe will say, “That’s true. And so it will be.”
If you say, “I want more sex and more companionship in my life!” the Universe will declare, “That is true. You DO!” The Universe never disagrees with you!
That is why to “want” something is to push it away from you.
The point here is that I have discovered that the Universe takes me literally. In fact, the Universe has no other way to get its clues as to what to create in my reality except from the things I think, say, and do. What other way is there?
God is not the creator of our reality, God is the observer. And God provides the tools with which we are given the power to create our own reality. These tools are three: thought, word, and deed.
In my own life, I have experienced these words to be true. They are not just some fancy metaphysical talking points that are my truth. Oh, and by the way, because I say that they work, they do work. This is what I call Divine Logic. It circles in on itself.
Everything is a circle, everything is a Closed System, and logic is not an exception. In fact, logic is the ultimate closed system.
In my own life, I have given up “wanting” things. I can have “desires,” but I have no “wants.”
What is the difference, you ask?
You can always tell the difference between a desire and a want by the degree to which you become upset if it is not fulfilled. A desire is a preference. A want is often experienced as something larger than that. Perhaps it is even seen as a necessity.
In truth, I have found that there are very few—actually, remarkably few—necessities (that is, things I cannot do without) in life. I can do without almost anything and be happy. And not just a little bit happy, a lot happy.
I have experienced that Communion with God is right when it says that it is an illusion that Need Exists.
I have learned to change my wants to preferences. A book that has helped me a lot in this regard is a wonderful volume written over 25 years ago by Ken Keyes, Jr. called The Handbook to Higher Consciousness.
It can be found in most libraries and in many used bookstores. I highly recommend it.
