mid-December 2005 Email
Saturday, Dec 10th 7-9pm
I know economics are down here in the US Midwest, and folks are a bit scared. The war/terrorism scare is coming into people's physical bodies and I am seeing a rise in odd diseases based (I believe) on constant stress and living in a state of perpetuated fear. I keep seeing the three weeks from middle of January 2006 into early February as being a crucial time to flip the energy over into something else.
What is this energy that we are going to change?
Right now we are running the sacred energy of Trust through our minds, hearts, and bodies. It is warping into the energy of distrust.
I am noticing a trend that folks are getting wounded and feeling it, their sores are showing, and yet they are saying 'no' to healing sessions. When I translated this into my own life, I identified a lack of trust in the quality of connection with others.
The cycle started a few weeks ago. The deeper sense of the pattern is coming from the world stage. How can we as humans trust each other when the outer world keeps showing us distrust? Certainly there is that innate part of God/All That Is within each of us that feels and knows our unbreakable bond through Spirit. It is being called upon now to be our primary communication source with each other.
Our physical bodies sense the events throughout the planet. Our subconscious connections with each other allow actions and choices by any human to ripple out into the greater pool of human thought. This in turn presents new choices to us in moments of listening. These choices can be beneficial, or not. All choices are available for us to hear. When we are surrounded by distrust, it is easier to hear choices that are tuned to that frequency.
What does that look like?
Fear of not having enough money is the primary manifestation. We use this as an excuse for not taking the next step. And I do say excuse because it feels that way. The reason that I'm feeling behind the excuse is fear of the unknown. Whatever illness, issue or emotional loop is going on right now is the very one that when broken out of will catapult you into a new cycle.
I have had multiple yoga classes offered to me. Several classes are included with a paid gym membership; another was an offer from the heart that the instructor made to include me in an advanced class. It feels great to feel my body shifting, and feel my habits change.
I know the cycle of distrust will ease. But it can also be addressed and transmuted. All the energy being breathed into the war, terrorism, and violence can be exhaled into Trust.
What does that look like?
Trust allows the greater picture to emerge. It allows for an understanding beyond the human mind. Trust is ultimately about the stillness within.
When humans consciously choose to act without trust, that ripple goes out to our shared morphogenetic field. How much 'not trusting' energies have we all created together? Enough to manifest it into form.
Not just the form of the sanctioning of torture, or the war. Not trusting has manifested vibrationally into our world and our bodies. It is reshaping the US government. There is an uptick in violence. There is an uptick in fear. Even the animals, who hold the overflow of emotional energies for us, are unable to do so without massive damage to their bodies.
In these days leading up to Christmas and Hanukah, we can experience non-trust as a huge wave that overwhelms us, or as a splash of water that awakens us.
By our choices as humans we send out ripples into this pond of humanity. Remembering who we are each day, several times a day, helps to calm the mind and let it know it is connected into that part of God within. When we remember this, the wave of distrust diminishes. We see it for what it is; a human-made creation. Each of us has the ability to turn off the wave machine within us.
When we don't trust we make decisions based solely on the mind or on an overwhelmed heart. We can't feel our body or our emotional intelligences clearly.
Do something for yourself that connects you into your heart and your body. Be quiet and grateful for whatever abundance you have in your life. The sweetness of the air here in the northern US after a snowstorm is apparent to me today. Last evening I appreciated the quiet that a thick blanket of snow brought to my city. It was easy to hear spiritual energies between the snowflakes.
Here is where your destiny lies; in creating and re-creating. Molding your world is not something to do because you want to play with sticks. This is a lesson about co-creation with each other, going through the central connection you share. Some might call this God or All That Is. Know that it is a central connection in your heart. Know that this connection is growing in size. Know that the time is now to enlarge it.
Be still, and it will be so, for each of you is already held within the Godhead of Love.

ENERGETICS BEHIND SINGING (and SPEAKING) WELL
A Day of Healing and Song
Using your own body, breath, and simple yoga, I'll show how our energy field impacts our voices. We will clear the throat area, and empower our bodies.
