Many of you have been experiencing cataclysmic growth these past few weeks. You are being freed from the burdens of your past, the emotions you've stuffed, and the reasons you felt you couldn't entertain your own dreams. Some of you are repeating old patterns just to look at them one last time. Whatever was lurking in your depths is coming up. The old is burning away to make room for new life. Mother earth is growing! So are you.
As your planet purges herself once again of old energies and the frequencies that the human race refuses to feel, she is also bringing new truth, greater authenticity, and new life from her depths. You may feel this movement quite strongly as sudden bursts of emotion you thought you were done with, periods of dizziness, and if you are willing to sit quietly in the presence of the Divine and your angels – periods of increasing love, connection, and euphoria.
You are inseparable from your beautiful home there upon the earth. You are part of her ecosystem. What you feel she feels. What she feels, you feel. Here is how you can weather these changes with greater grace and love...
If you find yourself erupting in sadness or anger, breathe. Anything you've stuffed is coming up for examination. What is it you can no longer pretend is OK in your life? What must you do? What must you say to kindly and lovingly remain in integrity with your own spirit? Set yourself free.
If others erupt around you, do your best to clear the energies (ground yourself, journal, breathe deeply) and then remain compassionate. They too are bringing up old pains to be healed. Pray for them. Help set them free.
If you find old feelings "bubbling up" acknowledge them. Perhaps you've tried not to feel something – a desire to explore a new interest, a sense of unrest about something you'd rather not see, a desire for a relationship when you thought you were fine alone or a desire for alone time when you thought you wanted companionship. Your feelings are your guidance. Honor them.
Perhaps you've been feeling a need to purge your belongings, your activities, or even your relationships. Honor this. You are all being called to greater authenticity.
Perhaps you feel a strong draw to explore something new. Honor it if it is consistent with your ideals. Beware if it is not. What you are drawn to magnetically is your path of greatest growth. Growth can be joyful or painful depending upon your willingness to be honest with yourself.
Dear ones, while these energies may seem confusing, disruptive, and not always easy to weather, if you surrender to the truth bubbling up within you and stay connected to the Divine, you will experience the birthing of a beautiful new light in your life. Birth is a messy process, but new life is always beautiful.
God Bless You! We love you so very much. -- The Angels

I had a wild few weeks! Did you? It started with my water heater leaking, progressed into a need to upgrade my web server to one that costs six times as much but runs like a dream. My database had to be rebuilt. Next up were car repairs, a broken disc duplicator, and the need to upgrade several other bits of software and things around the house. I kept picking the tower card and seeing 555's, meaning "big change ahead." And then I began to shake!
I have been taking time in silence each day to connect strongly to God. I've been breathing the energies through my body. I've been praying for everyone with deep sincerity... and as the volcanoes began to erupt in Hawaii, a beautiful and powerful kundalini energy started to quake through my body as well. It isn't the first time I've gone through these phases. It was undoubtedly the most powerful.
I woke up in the middle of the night shaking as if earthquakes were shaking in my body. I felt energy rising up during the day till the pressure was no longer bearable and then it would shake and I'd feel an inrush of light so strong it was blinding. It seemed to parallel Madame Pele's activity in Hawaii. I do love her so. Meeting her spirit years ago is a story for another time...
I surrendered. I breathed. I felt the old energies of lifetimes leaving my body, and being replaced by a love so profound it brings me to my knees. I felt love for everyone around me. More clearly than ever I see the Divine dance that we are all engaged in as we help each other awaken and remember what love really is.
The world is in a state of huge flux right now, but we can choose to be in our own world and let the beautiful energies rising up within the earth rise up within us too.
Here are some pointers this week to help weather these times with grace and joy...
1. Acknowledge Your Feelings
This is not a time to stuff feelings. Imagine a volcano trying to stuff her pressures. It is going to hurt if we stuff feelings or they'll pop out in unpleasant or inappropriate ways. To avoid this simply sit in silence and acknowledge what you feel. "I'm sad. I'm angry. I'm wildly joyful. I am tired..." I go to my room and journal when I feel deeply. It helps me move the energy.
Whatever you find inside of you accept it without condition.
2. Breathe up from the depths
Breathe as if you could breath up your spine, from the center of the earth. Pause and hold the breath anywhere you feel stuck, the breathe out through the top of the head, releasing the pressures and old energies.
This will keep your energy flowing and allow you to easily clear what comes up from within.
3. Spend a little time in silence or listening to beautiful music
When the mind is quiet, the energy moves freely. We release our preconditioned patterns and allow something new to emerge. Take a few minutes a day in nature, breathing in quiet, or listening to music that elevates your soul.
Allow yourself this mini spa treatment for your soul to get in touch with the peace within your own heart.
With just a little extra time each day you can weather these energies with beauty and grace!
In this post, I’m going to share a practice of resting at home, and then talk about how to use that in the middle of the chaos of our lives.
Resting at Home Meditation
Try this now, if you’re somewhere where you can sit in quiet (even on a train or bus) for a minute or two:
Sit still, ideally in a position where you feel stable and grounded.
First check in with your body — how does it feel right now? What sensations can you notice? Is your posture upright and relaxed? What kind of energy are you feeling in this moment? What does it feel like to be alive right now?
Then check in with your breath — is your breathing relaxed? How does this breath feel? What is the texture of this breath? Keep your attention on the breath for a few moments.
Next, expand your awareness to everything in the room, including yourself. Not anything in particular, just a general open awareness of everything, eyes open, taking in all sensations, receiving them, not labeling them. Don’t judge anything, don’t fix on anything in particular, just open yourself to awareness of a field of sensations, your own body included in that field, not separate from anything.
In any of these steps, if your mind starts to wander to thoughts, just notice that (without judgment) and gently come back to your awareness of the present moment.
If you can rest in this open awareness, coming back when you wander … what can happen is that you yourself can drop away. Not your body or your awareness, but your conception of yourself. We all have this idea of ourselves, a structure we’ve created that is “me,” but in truth it’s just a mental concept. With an open awareness, this conception can drop away. Try it for a minute or two, and see if you can let that mental concept of yourself drop away, so that you’re just a part of everything in your awareness.
What I’ve found is that in the moments you can do this, it feels like you’re coming home.
Think about what it’s like to come home — either to your home at night, or to your childhood home after being away. It’s like coming home to the familiar, to the comfortable, to a sense of belonging. This is where you belong, where you are loved, where you can be at rest. That’s the feeling that you can get if you rest in open awareness, with your sense of self just dropping away.
Rest in this sense of coming home. Rest in this place of stillness, of connecting to the infinite.
Finding Stillness in Daily Chaos
If you can get glimpses of this sense of stillness and of being at home, at peace, in the meditation above (and don’t worry if you can’t yet, it can take some practice) … then you have a place to come back to at any moment.
In a moment of stress or frustration, you can pause and find this sense of stillness. In an argument with your spouse, in the snarl of commuter traffic, in the frazzle of getting through your overwhelming daily tasks … you can rest at home, in this place of belonging.
At any moment during the day, you can access this:
Notice that you’re stressed and feeling a sense of groundlessness, of chaos. Notice that this comes from wanting peace, stillness, control. Notice that this comes from wanting to be safe, wanting your idea of yourself to be in a safe, stable, peaceful place.
Find that place by resting in open awareness, in this moment. Letting go of the sense of self, just being part of everything around you. Just coming home, to where you belong, where you’ve belonged all along.
Find a sense of love for everything in your awareness, a sense of compassion for the parts that are in pain (yourself included, but also for others), a feeling of friendliness to everything in your awareness, a feeling of curiosity, of gentleness, of gratitude.
Continue to do what you need to do in this moment, going through your email, doing your daily tasks, but with a sense of stillness in the middle of the chaos, a connection to the infinite all around you, a feeling of peace as you take action.
There’s no need to get away from the chaos. It’s just movement, in the place where you belong.

It Is Not By Doing, But By Being Your Divine Self ... !
4-27-18 Message from the Great Council of the Grandmothers
"We have come to help you befree to be your divine self," the Grandmothers said and I nodded. "Remember," they said, "it is not by doing that you become one with Us. No!"they declared. "Doing will not give you joy and oneness with God. Action is part of the energy of yang and yang energy has its place in the world, but doing will not bring you into union with God.
"Being will," they said. "By being who you are; by being at one with divinity, you will save yourself. This is also how you will save your planet. We remind you that you have been called to us, and your being called is no accident. Nor is it an accident to have received our empowerment."
The Grandmothers stood quietly with their eyes on me and said, "Take a moment to focus on your union with us. Let yourself feel what it's like to be held in a nest of love." Dutifully I closed my eyes and thought of opening to this nest they were describing and felt myself ensconced in coziness. Warm and safe, comfortable and comforted. As I nestled in deeper, my mind calmed, my body hummed, and my heart began to sing ...
"The joy you are feeling," they said, "is more than you can contain. You are living in a sea of energy, and that sea is full of joy. Let it flow.
"Feel your body," they said. "Note the expansion within you and keep your focus there. And from this experience of union," they promised, "will come great good." I'd read of people having this experience -- yogis and such -- but now I was living it. Waves of energy were rising and falling inside me, coming on so fast they made it impossible for me to speak.
"What you're feeling marks a change in your vibration," they said, speaking softly to reassure me and help me ground myself. "You'll get used to it," they promised. "Watch now as joy pours from your heart, flooding throughout this city, throughout all of Southern California. It will wash over the entire Earth and over the universe, filling everything. Holding all life in love ...
"Each time you turn within and open like this," they said, "the reservoir of beauty/power within you will grow ... So sit quietly," they said, "and recognize your true identity."
