The Zags, the remarkable Gonzaga men’s basketball team, is moving into the Final Four in the NCAA championship tournament. As a Washingtonian, with Spokane as my hometown, I am excited for the Zags! I also keep reading and hearing about how happy, committed, and confident the players are during the games. These young men have described themselves as genuinely liking one another and sincerely supporting each other to win the games. They don’t let their egos get in the way, and instead, play to everyone’s strengths. The harmony and teamwork shown by the Zags can be an impressive example of what is needed in the workplace culture.

Conflict in the workplace, as well as families, communities, and the nation, blocks the teamwork and harmony we want in the workplace culture. Conflict and mental health issues are on the rise. Employee Assistance Programs are trying to meet the demands. But treating the symptoms is not changing the culture where the real problems exist. The responsibility for transforming workplace culture resides with leadership. Respect and true affinity for one another starts from enlightened leaders operating from universal love, the basic and powerful force that unites human beings.

We often use the word love indiscriminately: “I love my house, my new outfit, the movie I saw, the dinner I had, the new car I bought, or the places I have visited.” But we hesitate to use the same word about our neighbors, our co-workers, our friends, or especially our enemies. Too often, we hold back love and refrain from expressing our affinity for others. And when someone disagrees with us or does something that we find unacceptable, we can actually feel hostile toward that one or that group of people. This resulting conflict of these contradictory views in the workplace is a toxic environment while, on a bigger scope, the outcome in the country is a divided nation. Conflict is seen, heard, and felt frequently. Blaming others is not the remedy. The antidote to conflict is the wisdom of universal love. The path to harmony is not in overcoming others, but conversely, in finding that we are more alike than we are different.

Examining conflict and our own part in creating the discord that blocks teamwork.

I suggest we ask ourselves the following questions and consider these possible viewpoints.

  1. Why do I identify so strongly with my beliefs?
    I am not my beliefs. My beliefs are just my thoughts and opinions that I believe to be true. I hold them often so tightly that if someone has an opposing view, I feel it as a threat to my very power and self-worth. But even this sense of attack on me is just another reaction based on my opinion.
  2. Why do I have to be right and feel superior to others?
    My need to be right and overcome others’ opinions only causes them to feel backed into a corner in which they feel must come out fighting. Our need to be right has escalated the conflict. They have a right to their opinion even if it differs from mine.
  3. Why do I make enemies, either at work and/or in our national politics?
    When I can see that I assign the role of enemy to anyone, any group, or circumstance that threatens my identity or sense of safety, then I can experience personal freedom. A perceived enemy is a mirror reflecting our inner fear. Blaming others weakens us.
  4. Can I slow down long enough to find clarity?
    The culture of being busy, dealing with constant information such as email, texts, the internet, social media, and the news has become overwhelming and has caused a frenetic society. Bringing mindfulness, calm, and presence to every situation is the path to clarity and resolution. It is also the only way we can align with the power of love.
  5. Can I face my greatest fear, weakness, doubt, or sense of unworthiness?
    Great leaders have the trait of introspection and personal responsibility. They have the humility to be wrong and to admit their shortcomings. This takes great courage and is contrary to what many think is required in strong leadership.

The culture starts at the top and enlightened leaders throughout history who have led successful organizations, movements, and countries, take full responsibility for losses—not blaming issues on scapegoats and fall guys. Leaders create wins but accept responsibility for losses.

The remedy of love and acceptance.

Love, in the truest universal sense, is the most powerful force in the universe. It shines on everyone and resides in all people. When in alignment with love, we are energized and empowered to make new discoveries and accomplish great feats. Love is not a weakness. On the contrary, love is the power that sustains all life. It is masterful and imaginative. Imagination stems from the wellspring of creativity – which is the source of genius itself. When we align with love, we align with the power to move mountains, the strength to stand in truth, and the gentleness to feel compassion for all living things.

How do we align with love?

  1. Have an open mind.
    A closed mind can never learn anything new. It stops discovery, innovation, and creativity. Be open to others’ opinions and desires. Listen to others rather than offering your opinion first.
  2. Notice the constantly chattering mind and start to recognize you are not your thoughts.
    The mind is often on autopilot and is thinking all the time. You even argue with the thoughts in your mind. See them as habits of thinking and recognize that you don’t have to believe them.
  3. Notice the slightest irritations with others.
    Sometimes the smallest disagreements of different opinions can trigger us to want to be right and overcome the other person or group. Can you notice that the issue is not that important or might even be trivial and doesn’t really matter?
  4. Respect the right of others to have their own opinion.
    You will never change someone’s mind by blaming or saying they are wrong. Demonstrate your own beliefs through your actions, not your words. Be an example of love and practice compassion and forgiveness.
  5. Notice how often and what you are complaining about.
    The ego is constantly complaining about everything—the weather, the traffic, the news, the others, politics, or some irritable circumstance. This is the ego’s clever way to make you superior, the one who knows more, and the one who is always right. Try to notice and then stop complaining. Feel gratitude for all that is right rather than your perceptions of what is wrong.
  6. Never underestimate the ego’s ability to run the show.
    The ego is so crafty it will try to say things to you that will validate your faulty thinking. Your ego may play the role of the exalted one or the smartest one in the room. Or less easily recognized, the ego may be the self-righteous victim, the unfairly treated, or the underdog. These shadow personalities are barriers to your true birthright of joy, creativity, and peace. Your ego can justify anything. It takes great perseverance to not be tricked by your own ego.

Miracles, Love, and Laughter February 14, 2021

Valentine’s Day is a perfect day to remind people that it is through the power of love—universal love– that we will heal relationships and unravel conflict in this world. Coincidentally, I was born on Valentine’s Day and it is my passion to share my insights and thoughts about how love can change the world if we will only let it! Choosing love is the answer for all decisions. Unfortunately, the ego has strategies to cover its neediness and these strategies block the very love everyone desires. The ego, in its goal to always be right cannot find humility, courage, or other worthy qualities stemming from love. Therefore, the ego cannot take a stand for truth or have the courage to be to be or do the right thing in difficult circumstances.

Universal love is the source of everything and is the power that sustains all life. It can be counted on in all circumstances. It is internal and eternal and never wavers. You can be sure when you rely on love because it shines away all doubt, strengthens your resolve, and confirms your intentions. Love limits nothing and controls no one, so when you find yourself trying to control people or circumstances you can know you are in the world of the ego. When you feel despair, remember that love builds hope and faith, and fortifies your strength. Love provides comfort to you and others and has an endless supply. Why would we be stingy with love–our source and our strength?

In its purest form, love flourishes despite uncertainty and dissolves all fear. Love can move mountains and pave the way for a smooth journey. The amazing power of love abandons no one—not even your perceived enemies. It shines equally on everyone. Being both practical and masterful, it creates opportunities leading to fruition. Love does not shrink or cower in the face of obstacles. In fact, it clears all interference and amplifies all your efforts. Love is the very reason you exist. We need to envelop the world in love because love radiates peace and joy and that is what the world needs.

It is time to give up worries and concerns and recognize that they limit your power and energy. Learn to be patient with yourself and others. And come to know that love is enduring and can be counted on always. So, I suggest, be joyful and what you need will follow, not the other way around. The world believes you will be happy when you get what you need, but this is not true. When you align with love, your needs and desires will be met. Trust in that.

So where do you start? Families provide a golden opportunity because even in conflicted families there is a core of love–if you can unravel the layers. Loving people, even when they are different in some ways, can be an excellent practice for loving our fellow souls in all arenas on the planet. Start with your family and closest friends. Because, if we cannot heal our relationships with our family members and friends who we care about, how do we think we can heal communities, Congress, workplaces, or the world?

How do we do it? Challenge the little voice inside that tries to distract you and tries to make you feel separate from love and all others. Do not let it disturb your peace or allow it to perturb you. Any time you are irritated, it is coming from yourself, not another person. And when you are in sadness, irritation, or in confusion, you can listen to your inner authentic voice, coming from universal love, and not the selfish, conflicted ego. The inner voice, connected to universal love is so powerful, you can reach it at any time. You are never alone. It can be counted on to provide support and inner security in any situation or circumstance. Love is the source of peace and joy. The key is to be open and receptive, and trust that all you need will be given at every moment.

Be Steadfastly Awake January 6, 2021

Do you want to remain awake or do you want to stay lost in your dramas? A true being, your deepest self, is trying to emerge–without the silly little dramas and without the clinging to fear and inadequacies of your egoic self. The false images and small representations of who you are, are creations of the mind. The true being is trying to emerge–not the simpering child who is sniveling and winding his way to grief and pain. Seemingly plausible reasons for despair and suffering do not make them true and actually deny your rightful heritage. Compelling stories of disappointment, dashed hopes, painful losses, and on-going anxieties are chances to review your life anew, but when nurtured and held onto, can be excuses for staying small and denying your true spiritual power. The rejection of your true self, your inner spiritual essence, in favor of your small self is tragic. After seeing and experiencing who you really are, and then turning away, is a decrease in your power and a decline on your own path to awakening to your rightful place in the world.

Be steadfastly awake. Stand up fearlessly. Your power is so great that with the smallest nod, it brings you gifts and meets all your needs. And yet, you turn back to the painful position of the downtrodden. This habitual path of the underdog can be released when you acknowledge and affirm your desire to do so.   Why would you choose the wings of a sparrow over the wings of an eagle?

We are here with you and you are strong and wise—the one who chose to be here. Your clarity and true vision are needed and we will uphold you in your path upward. Please trust in that. You will be given guidance as you need it, in an instant, and you will find the joy of contributing full heartedly. Allow yourself to feel the deepest source that you are—the calm, grounded powerful ones that you, too often, deny. Build your strength and rise to the occasion. You are the beneficiary, as well as all whom you encounter. Blend your voice with ours and recognize your true destiny.

Most people are just trying to enjoy a life of some sort, or a trying to avoid pain. Choose to be a creator—choose to be the source and power of your life—not just an object tossed around in a tumultuous sea of confusion and alternating points of view. Stand up! Be strong. Be eloquent. Do not deny your gifts in favor of the opinions of those less awakened and living in fear. That is their choice. Do not let their opinion be your standards for living. Let go, let go.

Overcoming the feeling that life is difficult

Demand the small voice to stop. The weight of the beliefs from the past and the opinions of the masses can feel like you are coming out of a deep bog—a heavy body of murky water. See the image of yourself rising out of the swamp of human dissension, after this long period of swimming in the muck. How can you help others if you are drowning with them? You are needed as part of the evolutionary shift in consciousness.

Do not return to the sad stories. Do not be distracted with small issues, artificial charades, and shams created by the ego. Take charge of your own thoughts and keep telling a new story! No more tears, no more tears, no more tears. You are self-sufficient. Bless this day as you move on to new adventures in the unknown. Bless this day for the life you have been given. The power position is yours when you choose spiritual mastery!

You are a child of God, dedicated to Project Illumination. Do not ever forget this and continue to move persistently forward. Your seeming losses are gifts to expose wounds that need healing. Don’t be sad. Allow them to heal with compassionate grace for yourself. The future holds so much joy. Trust in this guidance and be alert for more messages of truth and vindication from guilt and suffering. Bless you, dear ones, for taking this walk on the planet at this time. Realize that you can receive guidance at every moment!

Project Illumination is not a small sideline — it is the purpose of your journey in this magnificent evolutionary planetary transformation! Join with the voices who are here to lead and to witness this time in history. Do not be deterred by appearances or seeming losses. All will be well as the unraveling continues, but ultimately, settles out. This necessary time is leading to the expansion of love, peace, and joy.

Trust in our loving guidance beside you. In this state, you can hear us clearly and follow our light of inspiration and divine words. Trust always that what we share with you benefits not only you, but all that you encounter. Share your messages freely and widely. Express with clarity, the path to freedom.

Aspire to new levels of contribution. Your powerful voices are needed. The crimes that are being committed in the name of peace, like poison, need to be diluted with an antidote. Corruption fueled by greed and fear has been underlying the social structure for centuries. Below the surface is a faction of individuals controlling the dialogues that are spurring hate. Badges of supremacy, claims of superiority, and accruements for those in power have tipped the balance to a level that is unsustainable. This has created mass inequality for people everywhere. The poverty exists because of the massive effort to keep people down and hopeless. The disruptions occurring now are a part of this enormous shift. It is your time. The world needs these messages in this time of havoc and fear. You are part of the enormous transformation occurring right now, even beyond what you can see or measure. Persevere with determination. Do not let heaviness, doubt, or thoughts of the past hold you back. Be unbridled, free, and relentlessness. You cannot exceed the possibilities–they are endless. There is no wrong direction — just step forward into the open, beautiful, future of the world.

Healthcare News: Finding Clarity in the Unknown: One Day at a Time June 2, 2020

We have all been impacted during this global pandemic in ways we could never have imagined. Healthcare has been severely hit during these unfolding days, weeks, and months. We owe our continuing gratitude for the selflessness, courage, and sacrifice of so many people in all aspects of healthcare delivery. It has taken a toll on everyone, both here and around the world. How we emerge from all this is still evolving and lies in the realm of the unknown. Based on my experience with thousands of people, the unknown is cited as their greatest fear.

The frenetic and often dysfunctional workplace culture came to a grinding halt, causing us to face not only our external fears, but also, our inner demons and shadows. In the midst of sheltering in place, working remotely, working under strict guidelines, being unemployed, isolated, and feeling loss, it is hard to find one’s footing. Economic worries and financial losses can be overwhelming. In the absence of a knowable future, the ego goes into self-protection and dictates reactions and solutions. However, thoughts directed by the ego are fickle, floundering, argumentative, exaggerated, insane, contradictory, and utterly unreal. I believe we always have the choice to listen to our ego or our soul. Our feelings are a response to the narrative and can change instantly if we recognize their source.

Profound Opportunity to Create a New Culture

Although we have not had anything of this magnitude in our lifetimes, we have witnessed people coming together with compassion and love in previous crises. We now have a profound opportunity to bring love and compassion to the workplace and the world.

Tantamount to creating a new and cooperative culture is the individual process of self-realization. This includes facing our inner fears and demons. Fear is inside you and is not caused by a situation or an enemy. But it is so hidden in most people, they do not even know that it is fear that is motivating them. Blame and projection, drawing lines in the sand, and creating enemies are all a result of fear. Fear melts when you align with your inner core, allowing your courage and strength to arise.

This period in time offers pause for self-reflection, a time to restore and renew your sense of purpose, your values and your path in life. You can assist in creating a new culture when you are operating from the strength of love and inner wisdom.

Resiliency and Energy of the Human Spirit to Survive Daunting Challenges

You are witnessing and participating in an extraordinary moment in history. If you were to look back from some future point in time, what would you like to remember? What lessons did you learn, how did you survive, how did you face challenges, how did you make a difference, and did you share the energy of love and compassion? How did you contribute to a new culture? Will you see that despite uncertainty and suffering, your inner strength and will to live carried you to new heights of understanding and wisdom? Despite many losses, there are many beautiful moments occurring right now. Let this moment in time be a place of remembrance of the resiliency and energy of the human spirit to survive daunting challenges.

Project Illumination—Steps for Bringing Light and Inspiration to the Workplace

We have an opportunity to bring in light and inspiration to the workplace, create clarity in the fog of confusion, and heal the complex web of egos competing for power and validation. Here are my suggestions to assist in creating a new culture:

  1. Take one day at a time and, in very severe situations, it may be one moment at a time. This can immediately calm you and bring you to the present. Trying to control days, weeks, and years ahead of you, is overwhelming and exhausting. Trust that you will find solutions and inspirations as life unfolds. Life is a gift and it is offering new experiences and opportunities, often disguised initially as problems. Innovation and new opportunities arise in calmness, not angst. When you trust in the unknown you tap into imagination–the wellspring of creativity—genius itself.
  2. Start each day with gratitude for all the good in your life. Put your losses in perspective. Though times are exceedingly difficult, some of the things we complain about are not worthy of our attention. Start to notice how much you complain about people and situations that are petty and small. Complaining is a hidden way to be a self-righteous victim and there is no power in being a victim.
  3. Incite group will—a powerful catalyst for new and innovative ideas. Find mutual goals and values and celebrate contribution. Whether working remotely or in the workplace, engage others with understanding, humor, clear communication, asking questions, listening, and demonstrating respect. Share and honor stories that are uplifting, heartwarming and bonding to your team and your organization. Recognize the human spirit in all of us.
  4. Stop being so hard on yourself. These are unprecedented times. Give compassionate grace to yourself and others. Perfection is an illusion and it only leads to self-recrimination. Self-shaming or self-criticism is an epidemic within the pandemic. Only you can give it up. Stop clinging to self-imposed suffering. Renounce it now.
  5. Do not completely isolate yourself. Reach out to others through video chats, phone, and safe environments according to the guidelines in your area. Be outside and enjoy exercise and fresh air. Emanate love and compassion whenever you go. Kindness is a great healer. Eyes are the windows of the soul and even in a mask, people can see your smile in your eyes.
  6. Be discerning and measure information from your own values and intelligence, not sensationalism and drama. Be open to all points of view and find your own voice. With so much disinformation out there, it is understandable when people do not know what to believe. Ask yourself, “Who does this benefit? Does it resonate as truth or does it sound like fanaticism? Will it help bring peace and reconciliation? Does it bring us together or divide us?”
  7. Be free. Regardless of circumstances, freedom is first a state of mind. Victor Frankl, author, neurologist, and holocaust survivor found freedom in a concentration camp. He stated, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Through the Eyes of Love April 23, 2019

Despite all external appearances, including calamities, chaos, interruptions, and shocking events you see on television and the internet, you are asked to see the world through the eyes of love. This is a defining moment in the history of the world, leading to a time where honor, respect, and love will be held in the hearts of people worldwide– people who understand and share the vision for a new and cooperative world. Pain and suffering, the result of the contention created by human beings, will begin to disappear as people join together for the common good of all people everywhere.

Positions of authority will be occupied by people who hold the highest interest and regard for all people, not just for those at the top. Beliefs in separateness from Source and from each other will be eradicated and people will feel compassion for their fellow beings, their brothers and sisters on the planet. The new cooperative system and structure has been long-awaited but is arriving now, the result of the chaos and dissension finally being played out and exposed for all to see– the erroneous beliefs that have been the underlying cause of the discord, the conflict, and pain in this competitive world.

Seeing through the eyes of love requires suspending your fears and judgments, and instead, trusting that a better world is emerging. When you are in a state of openness, you allow the divine to shine through you, assisting you in understanding all situations from a higher perspective. You will see even difficult circumstances as opportunities for exposure, understanding, and release of former ideologies containing supremacy, competition, pain, and destruction.

Joint decisions that benefit all sides for mutual satisfaction will become clear and recognizable as the only way to a peaceful society–comprised of respectful relationships at all levels. Each of you contributes to the rebuilding of the current societal framework, simply by interacting with compassion and understanding with others you see every day.  You rebuild relationships here and now with how you see and relate with those closest to you.

Have faith, hope, and trust that all is well, in spite of and in the face of appearances. When you see the world through the eyes of love, you see its perfection for the unfolding plan for society’s transition–a beautiful awakening, bringing a final state of relief from suffering and pain worldwide. This utopia is achievable, the state of cooperation and love is coming, and those who awaken can experience it now. It is already here for those who are awake.

See the beauty in the eyes of your fellow beings and be united and energized by understanding love is in everyone. Love is the source of all power and is the reason you exist. You have all been a part of the massive  delusion that has existed for thousands of years, but is now coming to an end.  Be joyous now and know you are loved and adored. The clouds are parting and the sun is shining through! You are blessed and this is the time to be alive with purpose and gratitude in your hearts. Awaken beloved children of God, the time is now!

Plans for awakening are expanding rapidly. Don’t doubt that this is happening or minimize your part in it.  Be proud of your steps and contribute with the passion instilled in you. Enjoy the journey and trust that you will be prepared for each experience as it unfolds. See the blessings all around you, recognize the synchronicity in all interactions with others, and understand how all situations and events are part of the transition to awakening.

The complexities of this world can be confusing, but the conflicts and discord are the result of the ego and its desire for power and validation. Don’t be hypnotized into believing circumstances or become transfixed on the false appearances or the temporary results of artificial power. They are crumbling and dissolving, even when you can’t see it. Awakening is just that–opening your eyes to the truth, despite the appearances. It is knowing that love is the foundation of all that truly exists.

Standing powerfully in love is the path for emancipation from all previously held beliefs and artificial constructs. The dissension and complexities occurring worldwide are a reflection of the grievances and unresolved conflicts in individuals.  As you find your own sanity and recognize your own misguided beliefs, you assist in the dismantling of the world’s complex societal structure that is holding a stranglehold on people everywhere.  So look within to release your own fears and demons and find the underlying source of love in yourself.  As you experience your personal transformation, you transform the world. As you find your own liberation, you bring freedom to the world.

All the circumstances, events and happenings in the world at this time, no matter how dire they appear, are moving forward in service to the awakening of humanity through the eyes of love. Be at peace.

Your Thoughts Can Never Hold Your Soul March 18, 2019

Your thoughts can never hold your soul. Your soul beckons you from a deep place that you knew, even as a little child.  The longing you feel to rejoin is a call from your soul and you are answering. Your presence here at this time benefits others as well as yourself. Present the face of your soul in the embodiment of (your name)–with glittering eyes, calling others to awaken to the brilliance, love and joy awaiting them. Do not be diminished by small definitions of yourself, or worrying thoughts that keep you small.  Your destiny is to be here now, with us helping you in everything.

Do not labor and worry.  It is all about unfold in magnificent splendor before you very eyes.  Blessed are you.   We love and adore you—you are a precious soul, loved by many, honored for your truth and justice, and your commitment and sacrifice for the good of others.

The pain you feel will melt away as you continue from your sojourn to a higher ground—a safe environment of lovely peace.  Feel the blessings arising in you—the relief you seek is right here now and at any moment that you request it.  You are always chaperoned– watched over on your beautiful path of diligence toward a mighty goal, releasing the chains for not only yourself, but for those you meet. Singing the praise of love into being, you are guiding others who need a helping hand as you are assisting in the shift in consciousness.

Bestowed on you is this gift—this promise—you will be taken care of throughout your life–trust in that. Joyous occasions await you—answering the call with your open heart.  Blessings, dear one, blessings to you.  Allow the flow of love into your heart—replenishing you soul that has been dimmed by the darkness of fears and trepidation created by the mind.

It is always your choice to listen to the voice of the ego or your soul that is aligned to Love. The outcome of listening to your soul is a million times superior to the outcome of your thinking mind.  The options of the mind are always limited to that which seems safe and reasonable.  Your choice now is to go beyond the darkness and come into full bloom—blossoming from the strength of the divine, leading you away from the temptress of the known and the secure.

Born in the moment, in sincere desire, is the content for the messages for civilization to shift—the dawning of a new world now–precisely now.

Masculine pride is being confronted and slowly dismantled, leading to a shift of magnificent proportions.  Blind ambition, greed, and fights to overcome others have a caused a breach, a break in the now crumbling wall of defense and projection, leading to cataclysmic results of a divine nature.

Follow each intuition, idea, and intention that seems to emerge and take it from a delicate flower and watch it bloom into an immense opportunity.

Beautiful soul–gather your strength, and begin anew, mightier for the fall. stronger for the experience and blessed by the grace and love that leads you.  You benefit yourself and others every time you return to the presence of your divine brothers and sisters.  Your path is assured and strengthened through the trials of your experience.

Value your gift of grace and feel the tears of relief.  The energy needed is supplied before you even ask.  Keep flowing and flowing, returning and sharing light and love. Let the light in you be reflected to all.  Peace and joy to you.

Remember, thoughts directed by the ego are fickle, floundering, argumentative, silly, exaggerated, insane, contradictory and utterly unreal. This will be relief to yourself and also help you understand the thoughts and reactions of others when operating from ego dictates. They are just not real.

Reunification with Your Soul May 8, 2018

The joy of reuniting completely with your soul can only be appreciated when you give up preconceived ideas of what your soul is, defined or conjured up by the ego.  Your pathway to this experience is paved with many misunderstandings, misconceptions, and misguided attempts, but is deliberately leading to reuniting you with your soul. Inhabitants of this planet began the journey long before they arrived. The intentional pressure provides the work to bring about awakening on this journey.

The process is filled with many missteps, but a deliberate commitment to rattling the cage of the ego’s self-appointed prison can lead to this beautiful re-connection and reunion with the soul.

High frequencies of undulating waves of joy are yours for the asking, yet many refuse to recognize or even conceive of the possibility of such joy, and therefore delay their journey.  Instead they spend a lot of time in a massive delusion with repeated disappointments and negative consequences—so powerful is the denial created by the ego. But at the end of the delusion is the destiny of each soul–reunification with the soul that will finally be attained.

Pleasure along the way keeps the process going, allowing each individual an opportunity to have substantial hope and expectation that joy eventually will be attained.  The significant efforts down the alternative paths and desires, will recognize that these simple results and external rewards (money, position, status, homes, cars, fame) always provide temporary happiness and only lead to dissatisfaction and disappointment.

You, dear ones, are here to help others discover their path of awakening by pointing back to the source of the pain and suffering, so that they can release their misguided beliefs and hasten their journey back home to themselves. This awakening is a true transfer to one’s authentic self, which is the only real escape from pain and disillusionment. Your significant effort and repeated challenges to this exalted path have been a divine crossing into the unknown, where all joy, freedom, and love reside.

We have been with you always and applaud and rejoice at every step on your way back to yourself. Believe in us and continue to receive our guidance we so freely offer. Proud moments lie ahead, so well deserved by you. Fulfill your fate by deliberate steps forward, not doubting or giving into your shadow or memories of past experiences.  It is over! It is done!

A Magical and Forgotten Power April 18, 2018

Join with us in the advent of a new chapter in the history of the planet—a shift of magnificent proportion and unparalleled advances in humanity.  Progress will be unimpeded now, moving forward with precision, allowing the circumstance to evolve and plans to unfold in a new glittering future.

Your experiences have given you the depth, the passion, and the conviction to be part of the shift.  Say to yourself, “I am soul.  I am occupying the body of (your name)”. Your soul answers, whether you hear it or not, “I am here.”

The greatest tragedies and most difficult circumstances that have occurred in your life are also your most powerful opportunities for fully awakening. When you stop and connect with your divine power, it is easier. It is a power so beyond your imagination and ability to conceive and that is why we often ask,” Why do you go it alone?”

You has the ability to call forth The Compelitive Force, a magical and forgotten power that was the subject of legends but guarded by secret societies. It was kept from you so that those in charge could control others, but it is actually available to all people.  It is a power resulting from the interaction of all souls that can draw forth or attract mutually beneficial events, people, or circumstances. It became the theme of myths and fantasies as a magical power, but it is actually true.

“Project Illumination” has included gradual steps preceding the tipping point of the shift of the collective consciousness. All steps have been necessary, leading to a climactic explosion, scattering light into the atmosphere of human consciousness.  Evolution is an inevitable process, but you have all chosen to elevate and expand humanity at this time, even if you do not remember your commitment to do so.  This process is occurring right now and you are all a part of it.

Progress is assured and you can’t fail. The pact that you have with all others who have come here at this time is immutable and cannot be broken.  Genuine efforts to awaken by each of you is so welcomed and applauded by the dimension that is assisting you and the collective souls who are here.  You are interacting with your own soul and every other soul at all the times, even though you are unaware of the inter-connections.  The synchronicity that occurs is thought to be an “accident or coincidence.” Trust in the unknown and the synchronicity occurring each day. Celebrate the unexpected moments and miracles in your lives.

The goal is to come fully into your power and transcend the physical laws that seem to be holding you back. Using the Compelitive Force and energy of the universe, you can override the boundaries that have held you in a place of limitation and limited means, bringing about an actual breakthrough. There is no reason to ever hold back and limit or stop yourself from performing at your highest. Nothing is gained by playing small–never ever, never ever.

No matter what your history and accompanying stories of unworthiness or guilt–they are not true.  Also, do not worry about the small opinions regarding your worth or your ability coming from others based on their own fears. Do not allow others to hold you back and never devalue yourself or others. See the love and truth in others and recognize their disguises stemming from fear and doubt.

Broad sweeping measures are occurring, paving the way for the new opportunities to evolve. A badge of honor, with the ability to protect you from the toxic environment at this time, is bestowed upon you. Notice how you open and strengthen your feelings as you say, “I am soul.”  It is not just a phrase, it is a pronouncement of your full power–the soul that you are. You have traveled so far with obedience and dedication to learn the laws and universal principles.

You can hasten its unfolding by joining us and, one by one, awakening to the presence and power of your own soul.  As you do that, you aid in the collective consciousness, so that the shift can transpire at this optimum time in history of civilizations. You can now understand and even transcend the old limiting beliefs. The laws are the principles that bond human civilization on an ever-evolving process. But now, even evolution of physical laws can be hastened with a mutation—an alchemical process that creates transformation.

Bridge the old ways with the new and go forward with new strength, like melded steel. Blind faith has carried you so far, but now you can go forward with so much certainty, grounded in deep work and your conviction. It is time to complete your integration with your soul and all its power.

Do not hold back in uncertainty.  Haven’t we always been here with you? It is only your doubts and accompanying beliefs that you are small that hold you back. We are always here when you accept our joint support with love, gratitude and most of all trust!

The universal power has always been here, awaiting your call. Your experiences and acquired belief systems were your guidance system–meant to keep you safe, but it also prevented you from being all that you can be. Why fly with the wings of a sparrow when you can fly with the wings of an eagle?

Decry thought-based fears, banish them from your thoughts, stop them in their tracks, face them, shine a light on them, and see that they are not true. They are only concoctions of the fearful mind.

You are only limited by your sinking heart when you are weary and discouraged. Do not collapse into fear. Fear in your own little bubble of creation is actually nothing–a small story you became locked in. But you have the key to come out–every time!  You are not helpless and hopeless!  Legions of angels and forces from dimensions beyond are assisting this planet, and are at your command, so to speak. They are able to adjoin with you at a moment’s notice!

Do not live in fear or lack because of the opinions of so many, many people lost in their own egos and sheltered worlds of fear. They are in need of you here at this time with your message of love.  Believe it with all of your heart and soul.  You are here to help, to banish the fears and the resulting dissension that is permeating this world.  It is fear that causes all the misery, competition, sadness, and helplessness.

Your fear that you will be doubted, discredited, and blamed, are so exaggerated in your own psyche. Make a new story- that these are just little bumps in the road and not the time to collapse in fear. Instead, bring your forbearance and strength to the task at hand. Much like opening a jar–you don’t try less, you try harder and strengthen your grip. When it is difficult, you enlist help from all sources–the Universe, the Divine, and your fellow souls.

When you feel doubt, smallness, insecurity or weakness, it is always from the ego trying to overcome you by convincing you to give up. The ego is dedicated to keeping you out of harm’s way.  It is also dedicated to keeping you in shame.  It is not the path of your true self—your glorious soul.

 

 

 

 

Liberation from Fear January 26, 2018

Join John Smallman and me as we discuss the topic of liberation from fear.

I recently spoke to 150 people in downtown Bellevue on Mindfulness.  I began by asking how many people in the room had experienced a significant or major struggle in the past year.  Without hesitation, the hands of nearly everyone in the entire room went up.  I asked them to look around.  We are all experiencing struggles, both individually and collectively, but the solution lies within us, not from struggling with the outer circumstances.  When we can align with our inner knowing, our deepest self we connect with a source and a power greater than anything external.  By connecting with Universal Love, we find comfort, support, and wisdom to know how to deal with each situation as it arises.  It is counter-intuitive, but when we slow down we find clarity and accomplish more. Here are my suggestions on the path to freedom:

  1. Pause and take a deep breath.
  2. Bring your self to the present moment by focusing on your breathing.
  3. Relax and feel yourself letting go of the busy mind.
  4. Trust in the knowledge that you belong here, and you are connected to Love, the power that sustains all life.
  5. Hold your struggle or conflict in your consciousness and ask your inner wisdom, “What is the threat here? What am I really afraid of? What am I trying to protect?”
  6. As you allow yourself to see the belief or fear that is holding you hostage, you can stop hiding it from yourself.
  7. Know that you actually have the power within to face and deal with situations as they arise when you operate in the present moment from your inner wisdom.
  8. Remind yourself that 99% of your worries never occur—they are creations of your mind to try to protect you and prepare you. But your hidden fears can be debilitating.
  9. Practice becoming present and connecting with Love—the very reason you exist.

Witness the Exposure November 22, 2017

Greetings friends,
This is a compilation of some parts of the messages I have received in the past few months but haven’t posted. The ultimate message is one of Universal Love arising in all of us, but at this time it may not always feel like it. Here are the messages:

Celebrate the new energy coming to the planet even when it doesn’t appear so. An enormous exposure of epic proportions is occurring, revealing the underbelly of the hidden scenes supporting the artificial structure of interweaving connections. The exposure is like lifting a huge rock, revealing the insects and worms living beneath it–hidden and protected by the dark and heavy stone. Many of the people who appear to be in charge but who are operating from the greed of the ego, are actually small potatoes. They are only the tip of the iceberg of what has been occurring for generations by those who would manipulate the world for their own gain.

You are now all witnessing the unraveling of the ego on the grand stage–individually and collectively. Don’t despair! Simply observe without fear as the evolutionary shift unfolds before your eyes. If you feel called to action, trust your inner guidance and stand for truth to power.

The exposure will liberate people from the grip of the hidden powers of people who have been overpowering others. Burgeoning efforts by many are bringing about the shift in consciousness. Foretold expansion and changes are arriving. Great tidings for the most awaited time in the history of the planet are happening now with joyous results. Celebrate the new energy coming to the planet.

The source of the problem is the competitive nature within the web of egos. It is a theme of one-upmanship–an effort to gain power and validation over and from others. What most do not understand is that the solution lies in noticing, disengaging, and releasing the seeds of competition in yourself. It can be difficult to do, but it is the necessary and most direct path for awakening.

As you notice the small, petty opinions, comparisons, and judgments made by you, you are valiantly letting go of the grip of your own ego and allowing your true self to emerge. As you set yourself free, you are helping others free themselves. It takes great courage to see the problems or fears in one’s self but that is the path to the strength of authentic power. You don’t need to seek outside for validation, even from those closet to you. Align and trust your inner guidance of Love because your limited viewpoint is too small.

We share with you from a higher perspective, unlimited my time and space. Living from the small version of yourself can keep you frozen or stuck. Your shadow is not deserving of this much time and attention. Stop clinging and reverting to its fearful thoughts and attempts to disqualify you. Do not compare yourself to others and don’t despair or believe your fearful stories.

When you feel fearful, understand that the shadow is completely dedicated to keeping you in shame and insecurity so that you will not ask for and receive divine guidance.

You belong here, doing what you are doing, advancing each hour and day, building momentum and perspective. Trial and error are guidepost which help you see the path ahead, not to limit you, but to inspire you to go further than ever before. Emanate love and compassion, seeing each person as on his/her own path of awakening–no matter how it appears to you.

Prepare for the new dawn of civilization awaiting each of you as you realize your freedom and discover that the source of your dismay is coming from you. All is well, even in these world-wide dark and bleak appearing circumstances. Blind faith is your strength and passion is your source of perseverance. Trust in the almighty strength of Love–your true source. Your source is so magnificent and powerful that it cannot be compared to anything you can achieve by your own efforts.

Attempts to elevate yourself through the fear stemming from your ego are useless efforts. Let go and see that you are right where you need to be. Blind spots in your road can be illuminated with focus and attention.

Trust in your true nature. Your joy is our joy, your strength is our strength. Your courage is supported by us at every moment. We are with you. We are you–without the limitations that you hold in your experience. Bless you and continue in your journey of self-discovery and share your understanding with those you encounter.

There is a source more powerful and greater than any circumstances or mishaps that are appearing in your world. Why do you try to go it alone? Be not dismayed and discouraged—rather lift up and trust in the guiding light of Love. We are here, awaiting your recognition and response at every moment. We love you and provide you with immediate assistance in every environment and each situation. We have not deserted you, nor would we ever. The treasures that await you are blessed with the guidance that will fulfill and delight you.

Bathe in the light of our love. Bask in our delight with you. Take down the shields and allow love to join you in every decision. Feel our presence–the infusion of energy and joy. We are with you at every juncture, paving the way for the perfect journey. Trust in the imminent and powerful infusion of joy and replenishment for you.

Be still and know we are here with you. Your choice to believe in us, even during these experiences of disruptions and significant upsets, carries you through all circumstances. Absolute trust is all we require of you, dear friends and comrades. We guide you as you go beyond the known, the physical limitations of the current state of consciousness, leading others to a new way of understanding, a higher level of clarity, and a place of diminishing fears—a place where only Love abides.
