How to Not Go Crazy in a Crazy World
With so many ways for us to be afaid in the world today, like Henny Penny or Chicken Little who runs around shouting, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling.", we have to ask ourselves at some point - do we really need to be afraid? Is there really something to fear and is fear real? What we know is that fear is false evidence appearing real - F.E.A.R. If this is so, then how do we find a way to remain emotionally balanced even though our country and world are besieged with economic collapse, oil wars, earth changes like global warming (or cooling), chemtrails, terrorism, drug wars, illegal immigrants, and corrupt government systems?
America and the whole world feels like it is in the midst of global mayhem. Watching the negative newscasts practically requires a therapy session afterwards. Believe it or not, we are ALL in the midst of an actual ascension.
How do we handle this in a balanced way and get on with our daily lives of raising a family and working our careers? Are we going to allow this to drive us into deep fear and panic, and worry that terror lurks around every corner? If so, we are really setting our immune systems up with emotions of fear and anger that make us even more susceptible to illness and disease. How do we want to show up in our lives today? We have to recognize that we have a responsibility to ourselves, our children's children's children, our planet and its beautiful animals, birds and sea creatures. Therefore, I offer some of what I have learned on the basics of ascension (and awakening or enlightened way of being in the world and not of it) to help point the way a bit further for you.
How Do We Find the Truth?
Very much like the famed Sorting Hat in the Harry Potter movie series, we need a proverbial shamanic crystal ball psychic guru in order to sort through the mass of available information. Where do you go and what are you looking for? Well, if you trust your instincts you will end up right where you need to be. How do you use your instincts or sixth sense in your quest for truth? You begin by working from your core.
Are You Searching Within or Without?
When my own ascension fully commenced I was inundated with information in every possible direction. I thought my problem was that I did not know what and who to believe in, trust or have faith in. Well that was the actual problem ... I was looking for something outside of myself instead of looking within.
I used to take my dog to visit a local nursing home, you know, just to connect with the residents and let them meet my dog who was a big brown German Shepherd named Nikki. While there one day I asked an old woman sitting in a wheelchair how she was doing. She replied, "Well, I'm doing okay but I'm trying to figure everything out now. And the problem is that I don't know what is true and what is not true." Her comment rang true. How on earth do we know what is true or not? Even within our own mind, without the influence of so much external stimuli, how do we know? She had a good point. I thought for a moment and remembered what I have been taught myself. I leaned over to her and said, "You will know. You will feel the answer within you. It is in your heart."
Three Clicks and You're Home
When I first learned about he concept of "always finding home (truth) wherever you are", I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Wow, the truth has been there all along. Three clicks and I'm home. It is so simple. Just like in the movie, "The Wizard of Oz." Dorothy always had the ability to "go back home", she simply had to click her heels three times to do it. And how did she acquire those stunning shoes? Those ruby slippers? That was noooo accident her Kansas house falling on Elphaba's sister, Nessarose, the Wicked Witch of the East. No it wasn't. (Sometime, if you have a couple hours, watch that movie again and see what Frank L. Baum intuited in his creation of the Wizard of Oz because our fictional movies (and literature) are very telling.) Remember, to go within and search and feel your heart for the heart holds the key, the heart is the sacred temple, the church within. Our Sacred Space, the Holy of Holies, lies within each and every one of us. Like Dorothy and her purity of spirit and nature of truth and justice, inner wisdom (i.e., to ask others for help if need be, and to ultimately listen to her own heart), are all messages from our subconscious self.
To further illustrate this point, each additional character within her journey represented an archetypal pattern within her that needed personal care, attention, acknowledgement and healing. The Scarecrow's knowledge (left brain intellect, structure) were what she sought when she wanted to own her own gift of knowledge or left brained grasping of a situation. The Lion's search for courage reminded her of her own need to be brave and face her fears with the nasty neighbor wanting to take away little Toto. Even the character of Toto's free spirited romps were Dorothy's inner need to be free and test her own inner (and outer) boundaries (worlds/realms). Each character in our own life's drama, play and novel all represent an inner archetypal structure playing itself out for us to wake up one day and attend to (paying attention).
Know the Players of the Game
There are all kinds of people in this ascension. First, the three basic groups or categories of people are:
- The Awakened Ones - Fully conscious and well into (aka taking action) their ascension
- The Awakening Ones - The veil is thinning, they are nearing their consciousness
- The Unawakened Ones - Veil? What veil? These folks are still asleep; they are not aware there even is a veil (in order to ascend, if it is their divine will to do so at this go 'round, they will be receiving their appropriate triggering)
What is really interesting is discovering those you think are awake are actually sleeping and vice versa. In other words, sometimes the very least possible enlightened person is probably the most enlightened of all. So, never judge a book by its cover. How can we work with this? Have you noticed there are people in the world who are totally into one type of religious organization or another? Or perhaps they follow a traditional religion like some of the Christian religions? Or they are totally into Paganism? Religious/spiritual organizations attract all three of those groups listed above.
What about those of us that seemingly follow many paths at once, i.e., Pagan, Christ based, nature based, Native American, and Celtic? All rolled into one? What about those folks who are totally into and resonate with UFOs and ETs and star systems like Orion or Pleiades, Andromedan or Arcturus? I think there is even a "Who's Who in the Universe" website that lists all types of known extraterrestrials and ultraterrestrials. What about those folks who believe they are "walk-ins" or "starseeds"? Where do all these players fit in?
The lists of players comes from an understanding of what happened long ago and there are many websites that have the answers. Use your intuition and wisdom to seek the best sources of information for in-depth identifying information on the aforementioned. Now, let's break down these three categories even more ...
Properties of an Ascending Anatomy/Form
Did you know there are three different basic properties that make up an ascending form/body? There are and once you understand this, things will make a whole lot more sense.
We are basically a mixture within our beings. We are magnetic, electric, and radioactive. The original humans however are like Mother Earth, purely magnetic. With the incorporation of so much electrical and radioactive signatures upon Mother Earth of late, we magnetic humans have incorporated all three aspects within. Radionuclides are found in nature all around us; in the air, water and earth's rich soil. Radionuclides are even found in human beings which we produce naturally because of our environment.
When you begin your search, you may discover you are drawn to various entities, star systems, crystals, totem animals, or deities; you will begin to realize it all boils down to ancestry. What our ancestors did, who they were, where they came from, all play a part in our DNA. Within a magnetic humans' structure lies the opportunity to become crystalline in nature once again - to ascend in the physical body. In order to do this we must transmute and release all karmic history (ours or otherwise) within this life as well as within our ancestors' lives (even if we are adopted!). When this release commences, this gives our ascension a big, big boost.
Now, however, if you primarily resonate with electric-based beings, then you will ascend but will be sent to that particular star system or planet to do so. Likewise if you are a radioactive-based human. All will ascend in their own time. And if only a handful of magnetic humans ascend, the whole of the world's magnetic humans and ancestors will be in their glorious company and will experience it concurrently. Marvelous. We are the Many and the One ... ... we are the first and the last of our ancestral lineage therefore we must heal our lineage ... because it is also us.
How to Not Be a Judge of Others
Now that you have an idea of the differences within us, can you see how difficult it is to judge someone? The only way I can explain this is by citing a personal example.
For twelve years, I was married to someone who is very electric by nature. I didn't know this at the time. I was very naive, young and unaware. Although the relationship suffered from numerous other issues revolving around both our self-worth, self-honoring, and self-love, issues we could have worked through in time, the basic elements to the marriage were not copacetic from the relationship's onset. In other words, we were not compatible. How well do you think mixing an electric being with a magnetic being will work?
When looking back at the drama of my life, its roller-coaster ups and downs, I can safely say that those events and people were there as divine guides and guideposts along my ascension path. And I can honor each and every experience, with an open and loving heart.
Where is the fear now? 'Gone with the Schwinn!' It's history because I cannot judge what other people do to move along their own path, be it electric, magnetic or radioactive. Judgment is replaced with compassion - quite freeing.
Getting in Touch With Your Ancestry
As the new energies increase, allowing Mother Earth her own complete ascension, we all feel the her throes like childbirth and can experience them in grace or in pain. When Jesus walked the earth more than 2000 years ago, his message was to forgive. Forgiveness is an essential ingredient to our ascension. We must openly forgive our ancestors their atrocities as well as forgive our own. In so doing, we mark the path more clearly toward our ascension process. Thus paving a clearer way for our ancestors also.
When in prayer or meditation or whatever form you go within, focus on your ancestry. Look for the clues or synchronicities throughout the day, or your dreamtime, for these clues will assist you greatly. State to God/Goddess/Universe your intent to release your ancestors' karma, your own karma, as well as karma that has been bestowed upon you that is not yours to own. Forgiveness lights the path with compassion.
Where 'o Where Is My God?
"Be Still and Know that I AM God" God is within all things. On January 3, 2000, my veil was lifted. I saw and knew. In the knowing I experienced the truth about God. First and foremost, there is no separation. If you fall into step with people who separate God from man, then you begin to believe not in yourself but in a separate entity altogether.
God made man out of his own likeness. God instilled in man a divine spark of himself. How then can we look outside of ourselves for God? Once you accept that all things are within, fully and completely, then you can feel the grandness of God and know that you are truly a divine being.
What is the "Return of the Christ" and How Does it Affect Me?
Notice I didn't say 'when'?! Interpretations of the Bible claim that "Jesus is coming" to rid the world of evil. Many religious organizations teach that there will be a return of the Messiah in human form and we are to diligently look for him, wait for him. Once again some people take it literally and look outside themselves for this "return of Christ."
Another way to look at it, is that the return of Christ has already happened. It is already here. We are the living human form of the Christ consciousness or a compassionate awareness of inner Light. It is an embracing of God within. Jesus said, "All these things you can do, and more". He wasn't kidding. Our potential, once we realize our divinity, is his humble way of saying "You guys are awesome! You just don't re-member. And when you do ... watch out world! " When we stop looking outside of ourselves for a savior or messiah, and look within to find that saving grace, we will see the fullness of God within
"Be Still and Know that I AM God" by repeating this phrase as a mantra, this can effect our sense of peace, our purpose, our well-being. We can then come from a state of unconditional love for all; like "Ohm-ing" whereby we are brought back to our natural frequency of balance.
Back to Basics
In order to regroup, we must reground ourselves. Unplugging the computer and TV is a great start. Take long walks and get out with nature and relish the glory of our planet; the wonderful miraculous animals and beauty of Mother Earth. In this time of mass confusion and overwhelming media stimuli, many lightworkers (especially) are finding that experiencing nature and grounding ourselves within her, is all we need do in order to feel the fullness within. We experience her beauty and we know ourselves. We will once again feel ourselves as integral parts of the whole, and with forgiveness and compassion we shine brightly like stars filled with unconditional love.
I believe these ascension basics will be helpful to those who are searching. These are truths that have resonated with me for some time now. A reoccurring theme in this article and website is to get back to yourself, trust yourself, know your heart, listen to the still voice within. Energy/chi is power with which we all are gifted from our True Source/ God/dess. Staying centered, focused and clear will keep you from being effected by others attempting to negatively work out their karma with you or stealing your energy/chi. It is essential that centeredness and heart connection be your main focus. With these wonderful tools you will be well on your ascension path.
I bid you peace.
