The “New Normal” We are Now Living In And How To Make It Work For You

 

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

It is a fact that we are living in a time of extremes. That doesn’t mean that only bad things are happening, or even good things for that matter. But, that we are living in a time when really BIG things are happening. We can no longer separate the big things that are happening in our world from ourselves and our everyday lives and our families.

Yes, our world is changing in ways we have never seen and in ways we are not used to. I mean, we don’t have a good guide, or a good blueprint, or a good textbook. And, the significance of this is that we need to think and act differently. More so now than at any time in the past.

There is a trigger for this change that we are seeing now that makes this so unlike the times of our parents or our grandparents.

There is a convergence of three powerful cycles of change that we were not taught about in school.

These three cycles of change that are staring us in the face right now…this window of time where a cycle of conflict is converging with the climate cycle and the economic cycle…well, that is a recipe for tremendous change.

For us it means that we are not going to stop that cycle…our worlds and our lives are changing.

This is the new normal we are living in. And, because we’ve been so conditioned in the past to look at the world we’ve known and say “This is not the ways things should be,” it makes it hard for us to embrace something that is new.

But, now is the time to get honest with ourselves. We’re going to see a shift in our weather, we’re going to see volatile economies. And through that volatility in the way people work together and embrace that, is how we will move forward and begin to solve our problems…rather than trying to do everything we’ve done in the past that led to our problems to begin with.

And, a very new discovery that has caught the medical profession off guard is the fact that our ability to embrace change is directly linked to our heart and our brain and the connection that the two of them make together.

The quality of that communication determines the chemistry that’s released into our bodies, our anti-age hormones, our immune response…is it strong or is it weak? And, that is driven largely by emotion and the way we feel about our world…our perceptions.

Are you beginning to see what an important role the heart plays in all of us moving forward in a healthy way? So important in fact, that scientists have coined a term “the little brain inside the heart.”

And, this little brain inside the heart has the ability to function independently from the brain in our head. It can remember on its own, it has its own way of thinking, its own way of learning, its own way of feeling and ~ it can be connected. In a way that will empower us and open the door to a multitude of really extraordinary experiences.

But, until we learn how to marry the wisdom of our heart with the utility of the mind, any information we receive will remain “just information” in the clutter of our mind that we soon forget.

However, when we establish this connection, it’s a hotline to our sub-conscious mind where we must communicate in a healthy way if we’re going to change unhealthy patterns in our lives.

Yes, it is only through reconnecting our heart to our brain that we will be able to solve the problems of this “new normal” that we are living in.

Our Heart and The Three Very Important Keys To Our Future

“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.”
~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Let us speak about Love for a moment shall we. After all, it is the month of Love.

Love is not a word. It is a vibration, a power…an essence. Love is the most priceless ingredient and most commanding vibration in all existence. It’s an eternal dynamic living force. Love is the unified power which holds all things together. Love simply contains everything.

Enough intensity of love can heal and transform everything. This is humanity’s true nature. To be. In Love.

So, what is keeping us from exploding into the fullness of our divine selves, from this burning desire to know perfected love?

Well, there are several factors. Not all will apply to you personally, but in general, several, if not all, of these factors apply to most of us in varying degrees.

First, a lack of vigilance and motivation, with too little faith in such promises of Love will be sure to derail us.

Second, is consistency.  A lack of consistency in our resolution to invest enough time and energy in our own spiritual development keeps us in a state of spiritual lethargy and in a spiritual negative balance.

Now, let me say here that when I speak about spirituality I am not talking about religion. No, religion is man-made and is more about the rules and laws, and dogmas. Spirituality on the other hand, is all about the heart. Our own heart. And how we develop that love for our own Self.

The third factor is that most of us, unfortunately are suffering from a kind of spiritual laziness. We are all too busy “doing” rather than “becoming.” How many of us know why we have chosen to incarnate here at this time?

We all need to slash our “to do lists” in half and start investing time in developing and integrating the love of the divine that is in each of us. We need to start really loving ourselves and make an effort and commitment on an ongoing basis.

In truth, given what is happening on this earth at this point in history, there is nothing more important for all of us at this time.

I mean what we “did” yesterday has a very short-term impact on our lives. But, what we “become” as a divine being incarnated in a human experience will remain with us for eternity.

These are not ordinary times. Really big things are happening out there.  So, we need a good guide, a good blueprint…we need to find a way within ourselves to embrace the change that is happening in a healthy way and not just survive…by hanging on by a thread. We want to thrive!

How do we do that? We let our hearts guide us. You see, our hearts are way more than a pump. It’s a hot-line to our true power. For when we share our deepest gifts, our greatest passion…whatever that may be, that is how we are supported in these times of change. If the fires in our hearts are burning high enough, this love will stand ready to see us through all potential conflict and chaos. With ease and grace.

“The key to our future lies in the wisdom of our heart.”

How To Act Our Way Into a New Way of Thinking

“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes; that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.”

…Paramahansa Yogananda

Once upon a time…there was a time in our lives where we were very high in our awareness compared to where we are now. Then, this “fall” took place and we lost it. Even lost our ability to make fire.

There is a lot of talk these days of raising our vibration. Of the need to ascend from third dimension to fifth dimension. What exactly does this mean? What do we need to do? How do we do it?

We were heart-based a long time ago and we lost it. The connection between the heart and the brain was severed and we ended up living in our brain. This is not the true nature of human consciousness.

In order to survive we had to learn how to do everything. We used our brains and developed an ego in order to survive.  And, that’s great. It got us to this point. But, we are now living in a world that is at odds with everything.

So, our brains alone can no longer sustain us as we transition into this new world.

We are currently under the control or psychic influence of a world that is designed to sabotage us, to keep us from feeling happy and enjoying life and being glad to be alive.

We must take responsibility for the bad stuff that’s happening. It is a responsibility of our human experience.  So, how do we learn to raise our vibration in the midst of all this chaos? And, why is this so important?

First let me say that fifth dimension is not a place that you will be going to, but rather a state of beingness that you will attain. It’s moving to another level of existence. It’s simply a movement within us. It’s not something that is external to us.

The fifth dimension is a vibration, or rather a marriage of vibrations that are represented in the energies of love, trust, compassion, faith, grace and gratitude, representing a frequency in its purest form.

What raising our vibration really means is reconnecting the heart back to the brain. We make a change and we begin to perceive on another frequency of reality…and suddenly we’re in another world.

I believe that in our hearts we know this Truth although our minds still struggle to grasp the full scope of this reality. Our minds still demand ritual and rules, and proof, before we will step one foot upon this new path.

So, our work is to bring ourselves back to the frequency of faith and trust, NOT doubt and denial. This will help us to remember our True Self. We must ACT our way into a new way of thinking instead of thinking our way into a new way of acting.

That is where we must start.

The importance? It’s HUGE. The evolution of humanity depends on it. In truth, that is why we are here. The answers that we seek reside within us. It begins with us. Each one of us.

Can you begin to see that as we work on moving into our true identity, it’s that vibration that starts to resonate throughout the world…it’s that vibration that will change the flow of history!

In fact, “WE ARE THE ONES WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!”

What If…

rocket-launch-67646_640

“Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rage at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

…Dylan Thomas as quoted by Professor Brand.

I was travelling this past week and, while on route, I watched a movie. It was not a typical movie that I would be attracted to, but one that was recommended to me by someone I have grown to have a deep respect for. So I pressed the “Play” button and sat back to watch. Never expecting to be blown away. Never expecting to be taken to a new level of thinking while I watched.

The pilot had said, “Sit back. Relax. Enjoy the flight.” And, so like a spectator, along for the ride, I did just that.

But, this was one of those movies that as you got deeper and deeper into it, you knew intuitively that it was special.  You knew, watching this that it was no longer okay to be lulled into false sense of calm, to be a bystander, an onlooker.

Funny isn’t it, how different it is when you are the driver, choosing your own route, and taking ownership for whatever happens?

So, how do you become the driver in a way that doesn’t cause fear and a sense of doom to all those who are on the road with you? How do you do it in a way that has you slamming on the brakes and skidding to a stop shouting “Wow, what a ride!”

Check out the new level of thinking I discovered Here…

We are all artists whether we like it or not. For some, this takes the form of math or science, or law; for others, it’s photography or teaching, or scuba diving. But, we each have our own studio. And, we can leave it dark and empty, or we can bring it to life.

WHAT IF, as we’re driving along this highway of life, we threw out the window all that stuff that has kept us prisoners of our own minds? Those places where the mind is absolutely sure that things are what they’re made out to be? 

WHAT IF the next time you read something, or saw a video that seemed to be way too out there to be true, you stopped yourself when your mind started thinking, “That’s ridiculous.” Or, “Conspiracy theory.” And, listening with your heart, you said to yourself instead, “WHAT IF?”

It will open up a whole new level of thinking for you. And, it’s that kind of thinking that is desperately needed in this world today. That heart thinking. Instead of the old race track of thinking… looping and speeding around and around but going nowhere.

You see, our planet is situated in a place Between. The. Stars.  With unlimited possibilities. Like the movie, there is powerful energy out there just waiting for us. YOU are in the driver’s seat.

WHAT IF the only keys you need to start the engine is LOVE?

WHAT IF…

3 Little-Known Factors That Could Affect Your Success

Thing one and thing two-Standup-FINAL

“When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.”

…Dr. Seuss

Next time you have a bad day, or a bad experience, think about this:  That you chose to be here, at this most pivotal time in the history of mankind. There is a job that you are here to do. You have a unique gift that only YOU will contribute to the evolution of humanity. In a profound way.

Make no mistake. Man is no accident. He is an integral part of the Cosmos and a participant in the destiny and the purpose of the Universe. This is a scientific fact.

But, like children in a playground, there comes a time when when we must put aside our childish ways. For it’s easy when something bad happens, to crumple in a heap and play victim. To say to yourself, “I’ll never be good enough, or I’ll never be smart enough, or I’ll never be strong enough.”

We must push against this old energy, this old Paradigm that we have all been living in for centuries for 3 very all-important reasons:

1. This energy is not consistent with ours.

I mean, do you ever feel sometimes like you’re pushing against common sense? Or you’re pushing against your family? Or the workers you work with, or the politics, or the main religions that are out there? Everywhere you go, you seem to be pushing. All those experiences that you’ve had over and over again, you’ve had to push against this old energy.

The good news is….is that old energy is dying. It has to. Hatred, and wars, and discrimination, and domination are simply not acceptable anymore because they don’t work. They haven’t advanced our evolution.

2. Our energy must now be used for the evolution of our soul. 

It’s time to go to work. It’s time to re-write the program of what we’ve been used to. And, it’s easier now to do that because so many of us have started to awaken. We are beginning to see what people have been telling us. Little by little human consciousness is cleaning itself up!

What is appropriate now are things like cultural wisdom, and wisdom of behaviour.

3. Drop the expectation of failure. That’s the old paradigm!

Here’s the secret. Old energy starts to go away…and be replaced with  something you didn’t expect. Things that you will try in business, and in life will work! But, they will work ONLY if you drop the old paradigm of the expectation of failure. Start expecting success! Make it your intention! Call upon the energy of the cosmos with the intention of success.

If you do, you are sending out a signal to the universe ~ to places you don’t even know exist in this energy ~ to work with you to push you forward!

Remember, the old energy tells you that you’ll never be good enough, never be smart enough…that nobody cares, nobody listens. Don’t buy into it! We have moved past this extinct energy. Why would you?

Our souls have miracles in our pockets!

 


How To Go From ‘Why me?’ To ‘Why not me?’

water-90781_1280

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”
…Ryunosuke Satoro

water-282784_1280

I am only now getting over this cold thing that has taken hold of me and held on for dear life! Needless to say I have not been at my best, most optimistic self.

I’ve had nasty, negative thoughts. A mean-spirited disposition. There didn’t seem to be anything that could rally me out of these doldrums. And, that is when I realized that Holy Cow! I must have some vile toxins inside this body of mine.

And it was then, that I decided to surrender. You see, I was fighting this cold. I was resisting what my body was telling me and I just kept going. Those toxins needed to get out. They were interfering with the harmony and natural balance of my energy system. So, I hunkered down, holed up, and listened to the whispers of my own body.

And, these words came back to me. Whatever you fight you strengthen. Whatever you resist, persists. And, whatever you fear, you draw near.

I initiated that first step when I made the choice to surrender and allow myself to heal. The Universe then reciprocated, opened her arms and….

gave me my daughter who helped me to heal by just being there with me.

For, it wasn’t until my daughter called and told me she was on her way over that I actually started to feel better. We spent the afternoon picking out a tree for the holidays. We baked Christmas goodies. We ate dinner by the fire. We drank wine and watched a Christmas classic. And, when I ran out of steam, she took over.

We forget sometimes, when we are down on our luck, or tired of all the insanity in this world, that we are not alone. Ever. Sure, we can sit there and wallow in our own misery. But, that just keeps us forever drowning.

It’s not until we consciously opt to do something good for ourselves, without knowing what the outcome will be, fully aware that there are no guarantees…that we can really reap the  rewards for not only ourselves, but for all of humanity.

I know that there is more I certainly need to do, but there is a stirring happening out there. I am a witness to all this insanity sure, but I am also seeing a growing enlightenment. I know this much for sure. We are all connected. And, we need to collectively clear away that which is no longer serving us through our own individual efforts ie. planting or making a sacrifice to Mother Earth and, by coming together and taking a stand for the land we live on wherever we are.

People are restless and the establishment is imploding. Consciousness is peaking through and for some it’s like a light switch has been thrown on!

I know too, that if it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others.

There are many people now bringing their wisdom forward to help further consciousness. And, I am very thankful for that. It’s working. It’s epic!

We Are Not Your Sheeple

sheeple

We have been referred to as “sheeple” by the infamous one percent. I resent that. I resent that my mind has been manipulated and controlled by this elitist group. In everything I do. Everywhere.

As we are awakening to a much larger plan for earth, these are the wildest, most intense times we’ve ever been in. Yet, if you look around everything looks EXACTLY THE SAME. You look out the window, you go for a walk, you smell the air…all the same.

There have been no large catastrophic events to speak of yet, but personally, it seems that everybody I know on a personal level is experiencing some kind of difficulty, or pain, or initiation, or depression, or anger, or FEAR.

The fact of the matter is that thanks to the internet, the truth is trickling in. People who once dismissed what they took to be outrageous statements are now going back to take a second look.

Recognizing some of the things that are going on in this world has not been easy. I followed my interests and my instincts and have studied many subjects from financial, to environmental, to spiritual. I gained a grasp of what was going on. I was not easy on me. I was laughed at and ridiculed.

However, when I read these articles on the false stories that have been foisted upon us, the general public, I felt a physical pain in my heart. I had a hard time breathing and I jumped up from where I had been sitting and started to pace. I broke down. I was having an Einstein moment…you know the one where “there comes a time when your mind takes on a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.”

What I realize now was happening was that my world view, my understanding of government as being my protector was crushed. It felt like I had been hurled out onto the streets to fend for myself.

The first thing I did was I cried and I sobbed. And, then at some point I resigned myself in knowing that this thing was bigger than me and that I would have to take an pro-active role in educating other people about this.

Me. Who spent most of my life just trying to blend in was now being challenged to shine this light. I would have to risk that nice, comfortable way of being and exchange it for the chance of being called a flake, a conspiracy theorist, or worse, an utter whack job!

But I also knew that in order for me to maintain any sense of integrity, I couldn’t just let something like this go. And, so through all of this I have learned to trust myself. I trust myself now.

We, as citizens of this New Earth, we all need to take on the responsibility of learning and grasping this information for ourselves. But, what happens to most people when confronted by challenging new information is, they seek to preserve their current understanding of the world by rejecting, explaining away, or avoiding the new information. They convince themselves that no conflict really exists.

Epic change is upon us. We all know the “norms” for external living. We now need to get right with our own internal spirit and form a strong inner code for ourselves.

We’re all working through this collective consciousness uprising in our own ways. We are creating this New Earth from the inside out. We are the ones who must keep things transparent and honest for “truth is the only safe ground to stand on.”

On top of that you feel that the world is wobbling at a rapid rate at this point in history and you may be moving through periods of intense fear, loss, and uncertainty; you may feel off-balance, almost as if you are spinning at a different rate than the planet.

Find out in 5 minutes

But, what if you could find out in 5 minutes a simple strategy that has the potential to be the turning point in your life? Would you like to know how to do that? Would that be cool?

If there ever was a time to tune in and listen to your heart, it is now! Feel your heart beating. Start with you. Just breathe. Just be with your heart and feel the power. Know that you didn’t have to buy this heart. It is there residing within your chest ticking away and keeping you alive.

Welcome to something quietly powerful

Pssssssst! Around the corner, down the bend in the road, in the unseen, the shift on this planet is happening. Just because you can’t physically see a flower growing, doesn’t mean it’s not.

And, this is precisely the time to find the “G” spot. Yes, that’s right. Being Grateful for the little things is absolutely the way to bring more into your life.

If you could only glimpse at the huge potential you have to create an amazing, spectacular life, you would all rise up and embrace those haunting moments of uncertainty, those awesome twists and turns, those bewitching coincidences… the ones that say “What are the chances of that happening?”, with such a fierceness it would astound even you! And you would come to realize that it is not happiness that makes you Grateful, but, rather it’s your Gratitude that brings happiness on!

So, go forth and give to this planet a kind word, a moment of compassion, or an act of love. Be Grateful that you can do these simple things. These things, so under-valued, are truly the priceless ingredients in the wisdom of life! Go ahead find that “G” spot because Gratitude really is a journey that’s best tasted every day.

 

How To Survive In a World Gone Mad!

This past weekend I learned a very important lesson about the world we live in and it is this: We are clinging to a world that no longer exists.

Yes, that’s right. We are waiting for things to get back to normal. We believe that what’s happening to us is only temporary. It’s not. The world has changed.

The choices we have made in the past got us to where we are right now. And, they worked for a certain period in time. But right here, right now, we have energy resources that are no longer sustainable. Our food and how we grow it is no longer sustainable. Our fresh water and how we distribute it, all changing. There are huge gaps between poverty and wealth, between education and illiteracy. And, as many blessings as technology gave us, it also disconnected us from nature, and from each other.

All of these crises are converging into this little window of time that is allowing us to look forward and embrace the new discoveries that are happening on this planet. That, and to build a new world that we all love and hold dear in our hearts. It’s an opportunity for us to choose to come together in a very precise way and create what scientist Gregg Braden terms “a coherent field.” 9/11 was the catalyst in changing how we view our world and what can be done.

According to Gregg Braden there are five false assumptions of science that we have believed in and lived by. It is the fifth false assumption he mentioned that made me sit up and take notice!

In the past we have believed the false assumption that nature is based on the model of “survival of the strongest.” Charles Darwin saw nature as a world of struggle and he interpreted the world through that lens. We’ve been led to believe in a world of scarcity. In other words, the way for us to get ahead was through fighting for our piece of the pie.  And fight we did!  World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and so on.

But, there was something inherently wrong with that view. Now, the best science of the 21st century is saying that nature is based on a model that is referred to in biology as “mutual aid and co-operation.” And, while violent competition still occurs…we certainly see it in the world, it is a distortion of nature’s deepest truths of co-operation and mutual aid.

So, how to survive…

1.  We can’t keep fighting things we don’t like. When we work together to create things we need as a nation, and to bind us as a human family of communities, we form a bond that is much stronger than when we fight one another.

2.  Violent Competition is detrimental to our health.  It is a corruption of our truest natures.  Mutual aid and Co-operation is a powerful strategy for our survival.

3.  We need only look to our own body for the answers.  We have 50 trillion cells within our bodies that must all work together to keep us healthy, viable, and sustainable. We need to pay attention to our bodies.  They talk to us and let us know when to rest, when to exercise, when to eat.  And, when those cells in our bodies don’t work together, we call it disease.  If it breaks down further, we call it death.

4.  Our hearts are the strongest electromagnetic generators in our bodies. This is the way to sustain life on this planet because we are all connected energetically through our hearts.  Did you know that 9/11 demonstrated just how much influence we do have?  That, according to readings from satellites, the earth’s electromagnetic fields were influenced by 100’s of thousands of hearts outpouring emotion in response to 9/11.  That, simultaneous human emotion which is consistent and coherent can actually create a very, very viable field. And, you certainly don’t have to know science to remember that for a few days after 9/11, our world was very close.  We were a family…unlike anything we’ve seen for a very long time.

5. Civilization is cyclical.  Know this.  We can learn from our past.  And instead of asking “What’s in it for me?”, try asking “What can I contribute to this new world that’s emerging?”

Those simple shifts will help us.
