Change occurs with dizzying regularity these days and that has certainly been the case for me as well this last week. Ups, downs, around...an endless roller coaster ride. I see the chaos factor weighing on those around me as tempers flare and the news continues to be dark. We must dig deep and hang on, utilizing every spiritual practice we know and emphasizing self-care. Miracles abound and there is good news everywhere if you adjust your gaze a bit from the “wrong” and “bad”. As you shift your focus, you will shift your heart. Actively seek the birth of the New.   Remember you are Light.
And so I am told:
One must exalt the Awakening within while observing the Breaking around you. Oftentimes, the two events blur and become tangled within your minds and hearts. You must remember that though they happen together, they are very separate events. And, paradoxically, they are the two sides of a Whole. Awakening cannot occur without the Breaking. To a caterpillar, the physical changes that occur during metamorphosis must seem painful, as the old body dies making way for the butterfly. So this Breaking must seem to you. Once again, we must remind you that you are more than this event, more than your process of transformation. Transformation is a gift of the divine and must be embraced as such. Allow yourself to utilize the Observer’s Perch that you might see the changes around you and within you as the same divine process.   Allow your vision to expand that you might see all as perfect, happening exactly as designed. Allow yourself to know that all is well and honor all that you are becoming. 
Equilibrium must be maintained and your inner balance restored. Ask for help and it shall be given through the power of your breath. Remember to ground yourself and center, always returning to the heart. A moment to take deep cleansing breaths can act as reset. Again, we say, ask for help. We who guard and guide are with you always.

Each time Stephanie mentions a Bridge between two or more planets in her blog, I make it a practice to place myself there and experience the particular energies there.  Each bridge is unique, while some are quite brief in duration, others last much longer.  Their energy is unique as well and I enjoy experiencing them.  I say all this because Saturday, after reading Stephanie’s blog, I stepped on to the MakeMake / Black Moon bridge and instantly saw a sign on the side of the road in front of me that said JUSTICE in capital letters. As I read it, my mouth filled with the taste of honey and the word itself shot into my heart. I could feel it expand within me.  “Justice from the heart is a gift from the Divine Feminine” I am told. 
It is the only true justice and from that point, all things wholing/holy are possible.  Justice is the foundation.
Allow the concept of heart centered justice to fill your heart and mind. Let it expand and take root within your soul. Meditate on it and you will find it changing how you perceive the world around you and your place within it.
Many are heart damaged at this time and must complete their role in this ending.  Allow them on their way, knowing that their part in the play, as it were, is rapidly reaching the end.  Hate plays no part in the new world.  They simply model all that must be left behind.
We do not say this to suggest that hate will no longer exist but as human consciousness expands, hate becomes a symptom rather than a condition which will be treated with compassion and healed.  When you accept what you see without judgment, compassion will always direct your actions.
The world demonstrates the abuse of justice at this time/space so all can see that its misuse subverts the concept of justice at its deepest level.  What passes for justice now is designed instead to instill fear and authority.  Fearful people feel powerless and are less inclined to expand consciousness, instead contracting into their fear, limiting options and choice.
Fortunately, that is not what is happening in many heart/souls.  Humankind is awakening and re-membering who they are.   The new world continues to expand with each newly awakened heart.  It cannot be stopped now but much work and attention is yet required.  Be willing to embrace the lessons of opening as they come to you for with the open and accepting heart, the New World is yours.

I have two HUGE announcements!  I was asked to speak at a virtual series called LIMITLESS: WOMEN RISING offered by the brilliant Kathy Basal of thevitalitycode.com.  My talk will be featured TODAY, Monday, July 20.  I would love to have you all check it out. 
You can register for free at https://thevitalitycode.com/limitless-july/
Hope to see you there!

Life continues to astound, doesn’t it? Changes are coming hard and fast and make all of life a confusing blur. I know I am repeating myself but I cannot stress strongly enough to all of you the importance of self-care. The most important thing to know about self-care is what it is not. Self-care is not predicated on “I should”, “I ought to”, “It’s good for me” and so on. Not that those things are not true - there are many things we do for ourselves because they are good for us: eat healthy nutritious food, exercise, get enough sleep, and on and on. We do those things simply because they ARE good for us, so we call that maintenance.
Self-care is when we place our attention wholly and lovingly on ourselves and our bodies. Activities that delight, that help our minds become quiet and peaceful, that nurture us - those are self-care. Watching a funny movie or kitten videos, anything that slows us down and helps us return to our bodies is self-care.
And so I am told:
You humans must begin to understand the nature of this “disease”. It was never intended to be a weapon of such destruction, but an instrument of awakening. Perhaps we should have said that you must begin to understand the nature of your body. Not only is your body a perfect vehicle for your soul, it is also a powerful learning tool. You have become slaves to what you perceive as your body’s needs and desires, and this has perverted the original plan. The body is both more and less than you think. Perhaps you might ask yourself how you can serve your body rather than the everlasting emphasis on how your body serves you, often experiencing neglect, disdain and denigration as a result.
Humans have forgotten their Oneness and become over-identified in Separation. As a result, what should have united you has further divided you. The New World is coming, whether you are ready or not, and if you don’t want to recreate what you already have - again, we urge you to make conscious this extremely important layer of information. The world of Either/Or is gone. Finished. You must embrace Both/And. As you step away from separation, you must prepare to embrace unity.
Many lash out in anger at what is perceived as limitations on freedom when in fact freedom has never been more visible. Choose differently. Choose to honor the body and its profound connection to the Higher Mind.
Choose to remember that as you go, so goes all of humanity and Earth. Remember you are not separate.
The resistance to opening eyes and hearts make this lesson endlessly more difficult than it should have been. It comes whether it is wanted or not, so you must engage.
You who Light the way must stand up and take the first steps. You know this and cannot falter at this critical time/space. We stand here with you with aid and support but you must listen and pay attention. You who never thought to lead find yourselves being compelled to speak and write and create. The simplest thought, shared with another, can take root and produce fruit beyond imagining. Leading need not be in the limelight as you call it, but more powerful even in examples set, thoughts shared, open hearts and kindness.
You become Whole when you embrace the messages your body sends you. You were not sent into this Earth Experiment without tools and aid, but you have chosen to forget them or ignore them. Now at this critical juncture, you must listen in your heart to what your body tells you. Only in unity - in your body and with each other - can your truly Divine Nature reveal itself.
Spend time with your body as with a friend. Ask it how it feels, what it needs. Listen to the answers that come. They will likely surprise you. Thank your body for all that it does for you.
The world you want, the one you dream of is right in front of you. All you have to do is open the door to yourself.

Our world continues to twist and turn in jaw-dropping ways, and we all watch, mesmerized, waiting for the next big *thing*. Real-time tv has become, well, real. Right?
But at the same time, our lives continue to happen as well. Jobs, relationships, all the demands of “real” life demand attention. Our lives haven’t stopped because the world is on fire, but sometimes it feels like the balls we are juggling and the need to keep our eyes on all of them and the environment around us is becoming just too much.
It is time to take moment to rest, recharge and reboot. Time to remember that we are more than our circumstances.
We just experienced a holiday weekend, the birth of our nation. Many have mixed feelings about the direction our nation is heading right now so I would suggest to all you that you take a break from *what is* and instead take time to be thankful for what we want to bring into being. There is much that is miraculous and hopeful and inspiring also happening right now. Much of it is quiet and certainly not covered by the news, but take comfort from the knowing that we are birthing the New World simultaneously as the old one is dying.   When your energy and focus are placed there and anchored deeply within your own heart, you will find you can negotiate these difficult passages with much more comfort and ease.
Each small step we take within our own lives move us forward into the New World, the world we want to actively co-create. No heart centered action should be considered too small or insignificant. Who knows what small step might catch the eye of another who then also begins to embody that heart centered living? And on and on and on.
Release your fear and embrace this newness, this fresh opportunity to be more of who you came here to be. We aren’t through the twists and turns yet, and while we can’t know what is coming, we can prepare our hearts and spirit by learning to surrender to what is.   We know we are in transition. We don’t know how that will play out. We do know that we have control over our thoughts and to a great degree, how we react.
We are reaching the end of this eclipse passage. Do not look for things to “get better” (whatever that is!!). Instead, put your focus on accepting everything with equanimity. If we learn nothing else from all of *this*, we must learn to accept every circumstance exactly as it is. Remember to breathe and come home to your heart.
Your heart is truly your home. There you are safe and all is well. Your heart puts you in direct contact with your Higher Self and those who guard, guide and love you. You are never alone, though it may seem so now and then. The wheat is separating from the chaff and this experience, this learning must complete itself. Allow yourself the birth of newness within you that you might “see” the world and your place within it in a new and beautiful light. Light indeed.
Some will stay, some will go. This is true no matter what the external circumstances. It is how life on earth was designed and created - for now. The New World is being created with every heart centered breath you take. Let that be your touchstone and your inspiration.
