Summer is fading quickly, bright splashes of wild flowers are now replaced by fields of golden rod and dying grasses. The air is tinged with a musty smell as leaves begin to slowly fall to earth and rot in the dampness of cooler evenings and we pull out a quilt to take the chill off as we sleep. I wonder to myself why we feel such sadness as the seasons change. It is not forever, summer will return again next year and life will be easier once again as we strip clothes off instead of adding them on. It is far easier to open a window to catch a breeze than load up the wood stove and haul in wood. Is that why we feel sad to see summer end? Or could it be that we lose a bit more of our freedom when we have to go inside and shut the doors and windows to stay warm? Does losing that freedom remind us of other freedoms we have lost? Is the passing of summer into Autumn unearthing buried truths and hidden emotions? Or could just it be that we don’t do well with change no matter how it comes our way? We just get used to the carefree days of summer then BAM, it is ending and we must change our ways yet again to accommodate the colder temperatures moving in. Change is such a mystery because we humans have such a hard time accepting it.
I think the energies we are feeling these days are not just the super moons, but it is also the flux of changes we are all enduring in our lives. Everything around us is shifting and changing and not always for the better. It leaves us unnerved and on edge, not quite knowing what we are meant to do next. Humans tend to like to make plans and it is next to impossible to make plans in this crazy world right now. What is here today could well be gone tomorrow. In order to flow with these changes that are erupting all around us we are being asked to change ourselves as well. The ultimate fear that for some reason most everyone dreads. In order to change ones life one must be willing to cross that proverbial stream, where we are in limbo with one foot on one shore and the other foot is anchored to the other shore. We have a momentary fear when lifting off and experiencing being ungrounded until that foot we just lifted up joins the other on the shoreline. In that moment we are risking loosing our footing, falling or slipping, but going forward we must in order to get where we are going.
These times demand strong faith and belief in ourselves. There is very little around us we can count on to remain the same, and so we must be able to count on ourselves to remain grounded and secure. In order to have faith in ourselves we must first know who we are and have a plan as to where we are headed, otherwise we would have to struggle with living our lives with a stranger. Life is hard enough to get through at the moment without more uncertainty. As we head into the cooler seasons and begin to close our doors and windows, it is a good time to go within and open up and establish a good relationship with ourselves. By opening up we get to keep the freedom we lost by closing doors and windows. Knowing who we are is liberating and something essential to remaining secure. All knowledge is liberating yet we tend to fear it and shut our ears to knowing the truth. We humans fight against ourselves at every turn.
To go with the flow we must embrace truth no matter how painful and frightening it may be. The truth is what it is, there is no running away from it, it will always seek us out and stare us down. It is like that trip to the dentist we dread and put off and cancel our appointments then reschedule. It is only when we actually go and face it and leave the office that we feel the weight lift from our shoulders and a giddy lightness takes hold. The world is ugly in many ways right now and looking away from it rather than at it seems a better option, but is it really? Knowing truth is arming oneself with our most powerful weapon. Knowing the truth is cold and often brutal, but not knowing truth creates that dreaded fear of the unknown which weighs us down, fogs our thinking and stifles our growth. Let us not only take the time this fall to know ourselves and work on ourselves as the cold weather approaches, but let us find the courage to know the truth no matter how awful and arm ourselves for whatever comes our way. To know ourselves is to build a strong foundation beneath our feet and having the courage to face the truth is what creates the structure around us, our road map to wherever we are going in life. So let us drag out the sweaters and quilts and settle into becoming our own best friend, armed and ready to face all the unknowns of our tomorrows.
Blessings to us all,
This looks like quite the full moon for us to work with and better ourselves. Let us use this energy to transform and create ourselves anew. Now is the time to release what we no longer need!
This is quite shocking to see! What do French children eat at school? Good food that is for sure. As I looked at the pictures and thought about the story they were telling me, I began to realize that our country has a lot of work to do to begin to turn things around and make people matter again in America. We have been offered the cheapest of everything forever now and it has become a way of life. Even if we offered this French food at our schools our children would not eat it. Why not? Because it is alien to them. They have grown up on fast food and our schools have consistently offered food just as unhealthy. It’s quick and easy and our children do not hold the same meaning as the French obviously. If we truly cared we would not have accepted crap for so long now. As a whole society, we did NOT demand better as we were busy doing other things, and now we are seeing the results in the obese and sick children walking the halls of our schools. There is that old saying ” It’s never too late” so I hope we will awaken quickly and begin to see the error of our ways and make a greater effort to do better for our children and for ourselves and each other.
I’ve had some time off but I am back. I just wanted to inspire your day and hopefully your life with these powerful words from Jim Carey. Enjoy them and embrace them. My thanks to Jean…
Workshop talk with David Wilcock…
It is so hard to comprehend the vileness and evil of Main stream media right now. Here is CNN’s latest attempt to hoodwink the public into believing that vaccinations are safe rather than have us believe the CDC whistle blower who bravely came forth to try and save children. Despicable and grotesque. The media all need to be in prison….

Will this end up like every other debacle going on in this country? Nowhere? I mean the IRS scandal has gone nowhere despite mounting evidence as have numerous other scandals that the Justice department does not seem to want to do anything about. Let’s keep our eyes open and see where this goes. Perhaps our combined energy and concentration can steer it in the right direction.

As everything around us is pretty much sinking and burning and exploding, many begin to wonder how to weather the storm and survive the insanity. It is not easy in these times of constant disinformation and propaganda. Minds are being yanked every which way vying for our attention. First and foremost, we have to shut all that interference out completely and only listen to our hearts and our gut and what they are telling us. After all, it is WE who know what is best, what is good for us, bad for us, right or wrong for us. To listen to ourselves we must first believe in ourselves and trust that what we do or think or say is correct. In order to believe in ourselves we have to know our inner selves! What do we believe in? What are our priorities in life? What matters most to us, who matters most, what do we stand for? The major distractions going on in the world over the years have been designed to keep us from paying attention to these matters. We have been told just listen to us( Govt.) and we will take care of you because we know whats best. Really? I don’t believe so.
In order to survive the major changes taking place here on earth, it is crucial we learn how to think outside the boxes we have been cowering in for so long. We have to stop using our three-dimensional old paradigm minds and allow them to open up and free themselves to bigger thinking. We survive these times by being able to reinvent ourselves and let our old selves fall behind as we surge forward. As the old ways of doing business begin to implode and fall to the wayside, we need to look deeply into that empty space and think about what we would like to see take its place and then insert ourselves into that space and make things happen! A clear example of this is the organic movement. Years ago people began to say I don’t want to eat this contaminated food being forced upon us, and so they forged ahead and began to create organic food that was cleaner and healthier and as more and more people began to buy it, it grew and expanded and began to push conventional food to the sidelines. Someone had to have the insight to see what was needed and then farmers willing to manifest this vision stepped forward to make it happen.
This is how we will survive. First having insights as to what is needed to improve the world and then being willing to go after those insights and make them happen. We need to stop looking for jobs in the old world and begin creating jobs for ourselves in the new world. The less support the old world receives the weaker it becomes. It is time to start looking at what is NOT working for us and thinking about ways we can change that and begin to create what we DO need. We will not survive trying desperately to hold on to the sinking ship as it heaves and rolls over and slips beneath the waves. So first knowing ourselves by shutting out the disinformation and listening to who we are and what we want for ourselves and for the new world is paramount. Next we have to open our minds to bigger thinking, paying attention to what is failing and where we can create something new to help build the new world and then we have to be willing to take the risk and let get of our old selves and give birth to our new selves as we reinvent who we are. Have strength and courage and a willingness to embrace the unfamiliar and we will see the new world erupt out of the ashes and leap forward building its new foundation out of love and honesty and compassion.
Blessings to us all,
