I am beginning this on Earth Day, as I watch the noontime news for an update on our weather as we have the third round of severe storms scheduled for tomorrow. I tell you this because I am struggling a bit today. It won’t last; so I don’t attach much meaning to this “episode.” Occasionally, I have days when the news (which I generally keep at a distance after a quick perusal to update myself) and our current reality just simply get to me. Today is one of those days.
I seem to experience this process every couple of weeks. We can’t have a change of this magnitude without taking a moment - or two - to feel the associated anger and grief, frustration and confusion. In a way, it is part of the sacredness of this moment in our time. As much as we must face our own responsibility, incurred in this lifetime or through karma accumulated in other lifetimes, we also must experience every emotion generated by awakening. The trick is not to get lost in it.
Getting discouraged from time to time is no surprise. A quick dip in the news is all it takes to disgust and dismay, to feel as if this period we are living through is never-ending, that there is no hope in sight.
In my deepest heart, in that place that sings of joy and love and promise, I know that isn’t true. I know in my bones that this is the moment I have been waiting for my entire life. I know my purpose and I know there is brightness ahead. We are all here together deliberately for this moment in time/space. This is, quite simply, a huge transformation point. We know this, right?
I also know, without any question, that Love is the answer. How many times have we heard that? In this moment of time, it has never been more true. Love yourself, love everyone around you, know nor unknown, and love our blessed Mother Earth, with all of your being. Our open and loving hearts are the seat of all creation, and the New World begins within each of us.
Though it may seem otherwise, the path forward is clear. Those who resist are far fewer than your news would have you believe. As humans, emotions are an enormous part of who you are in this reality so it is important to allow your emotions to express themselves. The messages they carry are important. Important too not to lose your way in them. They are designed to move you along, not to keep you paralyzed in one place. Each of you is being flooded with love in the form of different rays which come to support and to guide you. Allow yourselves to open and receive this blessed gift of spiritual sustenance. Utilize the Ray of Wholing to help your body through these many changes. Learning to be patient with yourselves opens the door to entirely new ways of being within your world and with others.
When you find yourselves lost in the craving for a different future, remember that the Present is where your attention must be given. Breathe, breathe, breathe. And never forget, for one single moment of your time, that you chose to be here and light the way. You are more important than you think. Let the Love within speak to you, move and direct you. Your purpose has never been more clear, or more important.
Note on the Ray of Wholing: I was introduced by my guides to this ray several years ago. It is easily accessed, requiring nothing more than intention, and is intended to do exactly what it is called: Remind you that you are Whole. It is very powerful, warm and lovely, and can be used any time, anywhere, for anything. No special procedures and no lengthy sessions. Try it and let me know what you think. Xoxo

A week ago this time, here in the south, we were preparing ourselves for severe weather, and it turned out to be worse than we imagined. A total of thirty-three lives were tragically lost in multiple tornadoes, ranging in strength from EF 1 to EF 3. It was a long terrifying night for everyone in the surrounding area. I spent the night in my closet with the pets, watching the weather being live-streamed on my phone.   Pillow, blankets and comforters wrapped around us, we huddled and listened to the storm howl around us. Thunder, roaring wind and lashing rain sounded, literally, like the gates of hell had opened.
Tornadoes went slightly south of my house, and slightly north, and miraculously keeping us completely safe. I got up the next morning and went outside expecting to see trees and branches down, and debris everywhere.
To my astonishment, there were only a very few leaves on the ground. Not one branch. Not one tree. Not an overturned anything. All roofs perfectly fine.
How could this be? I had heard the storm - the howling wind, the rain battering my house - for hours, yet we never lost power or had one single bit of damage.
Just outside my neighborhood, damage and debris were everywhere. Signs of flooding with washed away areas, standing water, branches, trees, the whole bit was everywhere, never mind the images of entirely flattened neighborhoods on tv.
I couldn’t begin to take it in. How could this be?
All life is capricious. It comes, it goes, it flourishes, it declines. It is energy in motion. Nothing is certain, as manifestation occurs in the moment, as it is co-created by you. The foretold Time of Change is upon you now and must be seen through until the end. Do not expect to get comfortable as it will continue to compel each and every one of you to awaken and take responsibility. These conditions did not arise to punish you but to awaken you to who you really are and what your earthly purpose is. The longer this awakening is resisted, the longer the Time of Change will continue.
Many are awake now, and others beginning to open their eyes. Much more is required. The dying Patriarchy fights tooth and nail to hang on to what slips away with each breath. Attempting to wrest control will ultimately only weaken them, as they dig a pit from which they cannot escape. The Breaking is almost complete. Their purpose served, they will fade from view.
What then, we ask of you? Are you prepared yet to be more? To be all that you truly are? The choice is yours but make it carefully, from your deepest heart, where Truth can be found.
Observe the places where fear seeks to hobble you and flood them with love. Each person has a place of Undoing which calls for absolute vigilance. Faith and trust must be your foundation and love must lead the way. There is no other way through, and through you must go.
In answer to my question, it occurred to me that my experience in the closet with a storm howling around me is very similar to our entire lives on earth right now. Between the pandemic and climate change, authoritarian governments, the assault on who we are and overwhelming greed, we each live in our own little bubble. What the bubble is, depends on us. Is it a house of straw-based on prejudice, anger, fear, and so on? Or is it composed of brick, rock-solid based on faith, trust and an open heart?
I don’t suppose one way or the other about my own experience. Rather, it has compelled me to look ever deeper into my own heart for all that is hidden or unloved. This year has been and continues to be an intensely spiritual experience for me, every day taking me deeper into my heart. I don’t presume anything about what that means; this is merely where I have been led. I share this experience with you in the hopes that it will lead you ever deeper as well because we can only do this thing together. If we are all One, isn’t today the day we begin to truly embrace that?
(Many thanks to those of you who reached out to me this week following the harrowing storms. You’ve no idea how much that means to me! Xoxo)

I sit here on Easter Sunday morning balancing a contemplation of resurrection with the prospect of extremely severe weather complete with long track tornadoes headed our way tonight. I have been terrified of tornadoes for most of my adult life. Talk about a forced resurrection after a tornado bludgeons through your home or community...
I will spend the day gathering my valuables and important papers and creating a safe shelter for the cats, dogs and me in my closet. I really really hate tornadoes.
What I know to be true is that fear disables and cripples us. It wrests control of our reality and leaves us immobilized. I have spent enough of my lifetime falling into fear, allowing it to paralyze me and I refuse to do that any more. And as an awakened creator, I have no interest in allowing fear of any kind to have control over me.
This storm tonight is just one more storm in the craziness that is our lives right now. We are learning to roll with what comes and that will aid us as we traverse the coming days and months. And it will help me get through this long night tonight. Rolling with it is my current normal. And I am good with that.
Resurrection doesn’t happen just once a year. It happens all the time. Big ones, little ones. All the ways we shed outworn parts of ourselves and become something *more.*. What doesn’t happen all the time is our awareness of these resurrections and the part we individually play by choosing to resurrect. As LightBearers, that is what we do. We choose to keep moving forward, holding our lights high for all to see.
The New World has begun, born in chaos and change. We have no idea what our new normal will be and likely won’t for the next couple of years. Glimpses yes, but so much hangs in the balance still. We have more surprises and challenges and decisions coming our way. And still we will roll on, shedding our pasts and stepping in our new (old) roles and purposes.
Rebirth and renewing is who we are and what we do. We rise above. We light the way.
We are the New World. Happy Renewal, everyone.

As we settle into the new and morphing reality which surrounds us, we are bound to experience up and downs, and even moments of extreme frustration. Our emotions might run away with us at times. Fear. Anger. Grief. All that and more may take their turn. This isolation is our new normal, and with it comes a necessary adaption to make it feel comfortable. That is how we as humans work. As we attempt to feel in control, we manipulate our surroundings for comfort and familiarity.
We are letting go of what has been “normal for us for a very long time. And we are not letting go because we want to, but because we have no choice.   Most of you reading this will embrace these changes to some degree. We know this is the dawning of the New World and we welcome that. Doesn’t mean it will be comfortable.
You are all changing rapidly now, in ways you cannot yet perceive fully. You are shedding the costumes and disguises of many lives and their associated props and stories. Having your “identity” feel as if it were being stripped from you is uncomfortable at best. Knowing it would happen and experiencing this multitude of changes are two very different things. We say to you that there has never been a more sacred time/space in your accumulated lives, and in learning to honor that, and yourself within it, you may find the process more comfortable. 
Much anger is likely to surface in the next several weeks, as you account time. When life continues to change and move away from expected “normal”, frustration and fear may combine in an explosive manner, and a certain volatility may occur. Anger is a great motivator and there will come a time/space for forward action. This is not that time. 
We cannot emphasize enough the need for gentleness right now, both with your individual selves and with those in your family, indeed for anyone with which you might come into contact. Find outlets for your overflowing emotions that harm no one, even yourself. Breathe deeply, breathing in love with each breath. Exercise. Eat right. Sleep. All the usual self-care applications emphatically apply at this time/space.
Let the Waters of Love fill your hearts and bathe the cells of your body. Emotions are energy in motion and they must be allowed to pass through your body and energy fields. As these Waters fill you, so they will fill those around you.
You are within the chrysalis now, and no matter how tight and uncomfortable it might feel, you must remain within it until completion. Make yourselves at home and at peace, as best you can, within your individual cocoons.  
We remind you again and always that we are with you every step of the way. You are transforming, even in the minutes that drag on and as the frustration grows. Be the Light that you are and allow it to move you through this transformation.
We are with you in the silence of your hearts.
And from the Mother:
All will be well, my beloved children. I deliver this new world to you as blessing and lesson.
You are loved beyond measure. This exercise was never designed to punish you, my children, but to wake you up so that you will remember who I am, who you are and where you came from. I am with you every second of this awakening. Now that you are still, I will greet you and hold you close. Remember who you are, where you came from and why you are here.
