Staying Positive

I was recently asked this question: “What is positive energy? Can you see it? If so, what sort of instrument or device can you use to see it?

Everything is part of the same energy. I cannot give you a scientific understanding. However, since you asked, I will share my metaphysical understanding. Once energy becomes encapsulated into a material form, that energy becomes part of the material reality and exists within a spectrum of light. When looking at the spectrum range, no matter where we look, there will be lighter, positive energies and there will always be energies that are darker and more negative. The spectrum of light is relative to where one is standing within the spectrum and viewing the range.

The lighter and darker energies expressing themselves in human beings will take on either lighter/positive or darker/negative demeanors. More luminous being’s demeanor will be more positive, (having more positive qualities), than beings whose energy is darker in their light energy. The term “positive energy” refers to the lightness of one’s being, which reflects the demeanor of our being.

Every being is an energy instrument, and the more we are tuned into the source of our instrument, the more we can feel and see the difference between the positive and negative energy of other beings. In positive energy, things grow and are nurtured and fed. It feels good. In negative energy, things wither and eventually die, because the energy feels bad. Again, it is relative to where one is standing within the spectrum, doing the viewing, and feeling of energy.

During this time of confusion and uncertainty, it is essential to focus on the lighter side of the spectrum and stay in positive energy for everyone. Peace and Light be with you and keep each other safe.

Earth’s Last Lesson Before Shift

FREE – Take what you need,

Greetings from self-isolation,

The pandemic has brought the world to its knees in a type of surrender, as it was designed to do. This has raised the vibration and the consciousness of the Earth.

Many are choosing to leave the third dimension now before the coming shift into the higher dimensions happens. Many now are scared and worried about their health or that of their loved ones and fear death. There is financial uncertainty thrown into this mix as well. How we each handle ourselves during this time of uncertainty is our individual lesson.

Many are realizing life will never return to how it was before the pandemic. For me, this is the fascinating part of what is happening now. A large number of people are seeing the threads leading to the New Earth. The energies on the planet are being divided like oil and water. We are each being asked to choose what camp we are in, the higher dimensions of the New Earth, or are we sticking with the lower dimensions of this old Earth. The old Earth is reflected in the defunct political system, which continues to be as dark as ever. During this pandemic, the dark energy of the elite in power continues to hoard all the wealth and resources they can get their hands on via the gifts of governments.

Shinning through the darkness, we see people coming together to help and care for each other during this challenging time. People on the frontline, like all the medical workers, working tirelessly, putting themselves at risk, are the heroes of the world. Many see social distancing will become the new normal, and this will change the way we work and socialize. A lot more people now will be forever working from home with the use of computers and the internet. We must rely on our inner connections with each other to keep us sane and from being lonely. I suspect this is setting us up for when we have 100 percent shifted into the New Earth. In the future, relying on our inner connections to others and working from home will be a way of life. The New Earth will be a very advanced, futuristic, global, and intergalactic society.

The horrific pandemic has the key and is throwing the door wide open to the New Earth. Until we are on the other side of that door, be kind, and keep each other safe. The pandemic calls us to be light, and look for the gifts of the times, rather than to focus on the tragedy and darkness befalling us. Atlantis was the last old Earth cycle, which went through a similar shift from an old Earth cycle to the golden period of a New Earth cycle. Many of us have memories of the different cycles of this Earth school and of the shift process. Stay strong together in the light. I wish you all well.

Global Rise in Consciousness

This is my perspective. Here we are a week or so into the great global virus/quarantine of the times. What is happening worldwide is a crisis like no other and the perfect storm for the end of this illusion/dream to happen. It is providing the tool necessary for people to go deeper into their being and to awaken at new levels of consciousness. Events and happenings around the time of 9/11 originally were slated to do this, but for whatever reason, the Earth didn’t feel her school had maximized the old illusion/dream enough, and so the shift didn’t take place.

I can look around the globe to take a measure of the elevation in consciousness as a result of the Covid-19 virus. The countries which have been dealing with this virus, have elevated the dimensions of their consciousness. This is a global dark night of the soul. process What is happening is a fantastic thing, and what was needed to take us into the shift. People are rising up and coming together, and if we do continue in time in this old illusion/dream, we all will have changed.

What we can each do personally to maximize this period, is to stay out of fear and keep each other safe. It is an ideal time to spend communing with higher self, if not already doing so. Support others nearby who might need support, stay upbeat, and positive about what is happening. I have been spending my time in quarantine doing art and yoga and going for walks while watching how it all unfolds because what is happening is fascinating. I would not be surprised if soon, we awaken from a long night’s sleep to find ourselves in a brand new illusion/dream. And until this time, take care and stay safe and keep your heart open.

Coronavirus New Beginning

In the last few weeks, I have started to see the Caronavirus as some sort of massive preparation for the coming shift into the New Earth.

What is happening is quite phenomenal really. I faced and worked through the small fears I had around it, as I am in the age bracket who are vulnerable. I accepted that there would probably be no escaping exposure to it, and I have prepared myself in a balanced, common-sense way.

From my perspective, whether we get the virus or not, whether we die from the virus or not, is a matter of our individual fate, which is decided by our higher self. This last year I have become very healthy on the Keto diet, which is known to put viruses in the body in remission. (I recommend Dr. Eric Berg’s version and guidance on youtube).

Even thou the virus is not in my community yet, I have been guided to self-quarantine because I know it soon will be. This just feels like the right thing to do at this time, for all kinds of reasons. I am not doing it out of fear, but because this is my guidance.

A friend sent me the below link to an insightful article by Li Edelkoort. She gives a fresh perspective on the Coronavirus. The article is worthwhile to read. I agree with what she is saying. Time will tell how far down the rabbit hole we actually go with the Coronavirus globally.

Coronavirus offers “a blank page for a new beginning” says Li Edelkoort

Take this time to slow down and listen to your guidance. Protect yourself and your community with precautions, but not in fear. Be kind and love each other and ride the wave. This is a time that many are choosing to cross-over. Know that the Earth is a school and we are all here to grow, participate and eventually graduate and leave the Earth. Peace and love.

An Awakened Attitude

Recently someone asked me this question about awakening. “When one awakens, is there still a subtle self with directional awareness?” Find my answer below.

I will attempt to answer your question thou not entirely sure by what you mean by directional awareness, and since it has been quite a while now since my consciousness has been awake, I only sort of remember what it was like previously. The best time to compare the differences would be soon after the shift in awareness has taken place, and before the new consciousness has had a chance to become the new normal.

We each have our own journey to fulfill, and there is no measurement to awareness. One being’s awakeness is another being’s sleep. Awake is just as the word describes, “awake and aware and paying attention.” The personality is still there, but it has taken a back seat. The attachments of the personality become less to non-existent, and this allows our being to be moved by the direction of our soul/higher self instead of ego’s desires or confusion. There are still preferences and opinions, but the attachment around these things has become much diminished. When something comes from our higher guidance, we will preserver in this direction. We become more self-contained and quiet in our being when we are awake. For many, this would seem a dull existence.

What most likely, is the attitude of an awakened being, with all the chaos on the planet right now? Most of us are being encouraged by our higher selves not to become fearful and to know that our fate is in the hands of our higher self, and all is in divine order. Perhaps it is time to stop watching/reading distorted news programs or anything else which spreads fear. It is a time to keep our heads down and take care of our precious bodies and keep our homes a sacred retreat. We must stay calm and centered, so we can hear the direction or guidance given to us from our higher selves. Finding and living in the higher realities of the higher dimensions is what will support the coming shift and keep us strong and intune. It is a time for us to stay focused on the light and beauty of existence. Be happy!

Dark Night of the Soul

I have several posts on this topic because even thou our awakening comes from it, it is such a horrific, hard cycle in our life to go through. Not all beings have gone or will go through this kind of cycle. Right now, in our civilization, before a shift in consciousness happens, it is a naturally ripe time for anyone of us to go through a dark night of the soul cycle.  And together, collectively we are going through such a cycle.

The Dark Night of the Soul (dnots) is a term that has been used throughout the ages to indicate a period of spiritual crisis in one’s life. During a dnofts period, our life becomes a shell from what it was prior. People and things get stripped from us in various ways. Dnots is a period of deep pain and transformation. Dnots is a type of event, which, “if it doesn’t kill us, it will make us stronger,” because the transformation takes place at deep and profound levels. Joseph Campbell wrote the dnots is a pivotal part of the hero’s journey for the hero to consciously awaken from the societal stupor they were born into.

“The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation. When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then comes the new life and all that is needed.” ~ Joseph Campbell

The dark night of the soul experience is something we in the higher dimension (our higher self or spirit self) designed for our human self to go through. The descent into dnots can be a lonely time, as many around us aren’t aware of what dnots is and why it is happening to us. It can be a scary and threatening process for others to observe. If people believe they have the power to manifest their desires and control their lives, the dark night of the soul process will shred this belief and enlighten them as to who and what is the actual control of their lives.

The descent into darkness takes about three years. and then the ascent out of the night and into the light takes a couple of years. In my sixty-eight years of being a human, I have completed four dnots cycles to awaken consciously at the level I am. To go through this many cycles is very rare. In my fifties and early sixties, I went through two dnots periods close together. By 2014, I began to rise out of ashes of my final dnots and into a new life and consciousness. Who I was before and who I became after, is undeniable. The transformation was complete and amazing. Thou at the time, it wasn’t much fun or inspiring during the time spent in the darkness. I feared my life might stay in the descent portion of the journey.

Collectively, the Earth is in the descent process of a dark night of the soul. Because of the nature of our dream-like reality, he Earth’s ascent will only be noticed by those of us conscious enough to be aware that the event has taken place, and a shift in consciousness has occurred. During the shift into the New Earth, the third dimension of reality will shift to become a sixth-dimensional reality. We had long passed the time when the shift was to move us into the fifth dimension.

Until we can shift into the higher frequency, the reality in this third-dimensional teaching field will continue to be challenging, and a bit crazy, so hold on and pay attention. We are very close now to the shift event happening. I have been tracking the shift into our ascension since 1997. There is no precise date for this event. It is up to the Earth to decide when we are ready to leave the descent portion of the cycle.

During this time, our job as lightworkers is to stay safe and to stay focused. It is time for us to help others who are having difficulties. These times can be confusing, challenging, and scary for those of us who don’t have a spiritual understanding of what we are all collectively going through. One day soon, we will awake from our sleep and get up from our bed, and all will have been transformed into a kinder, gentler world. And it will feel and seem like the world has always been this way.

A Positive Understanding

Recently someone asked me, “is positive thinking an essential aspect of spiritual enlightenment?” Find my response below to their question.

Yes, absolutely choosing to stay positive is where our human power is or what our free will is. Keeping a positive attitude and a broader perspective on everything, particularly as things are falling apart, is what is going to keep us from losing hope as our ego becomes stripped of all attachments. And deep positivity will help us from being depressed when we witness suffering all around us.

Fake it till you make it! We can fake feeling positive until we are able to make the positivity real. This will help us stay afloat until we are able to reach true acceptance for why things are happening as they are. Our inner peace is to be found within realizing why there is a natural positivity to true reality.”

It is essential in the process of being positive for us not to make up or project false stories about what is and what will happen next for us to stay positive. Making up false stories can be very damaging when actual reality doesn’t turn out like we thought it would.

We need to learn to let our deeper understanding of reality and our relationship with our higher self be the reason we are positive when a situation looks bleak. Knowing the Earth is a school, and we incarnated to be a human at the school, in order for our higher self to grow from human lessons, is going to help us stay positive because we will accept the experiences our lessons bring. Knowing this is true for all beings, will help us to see the broader perspective and be positive about our life and world.

What is happening now to the climate of our planet, and politically, is the experience needed for lessons to take place. The Earth is on track with these lessons, which were demanded to be learned. It is all as it must be.  Have a heart and be strong with your positivity, my friend for yourself and others.

Tips For Higher Self Connection

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all have had a love-filled day now and always. This post is dedicated to the higher being we are and the purpose of this being. Recently I was asked, “How can I connect to my higher self? “What are some tips for this?” Find my response below.

 

Our higher selves are incredibly accessible to us. The more we engage them, the more accessible they become as we become aware of them in ways we previously did not. They are with us every step of the way in this life. This life is actually their life. When we realize this, a big shift will happen in our consciousness.

 

The process of learning to communicate back and forth with ease takes years of practice. Our higher self is our intuition and our gut feelings. Religions often use the word conscience to describe the connection. Again, our higher self is who we are and is always with us. Start asking questions for guidance and start listening and see what happens.

 

Communing with our higher self is a personal practice, and we must find what works best for us. However, here are some beginning tips. 

  • Light a candle and make a formal request to open the channel to practice together.
  • Write in a journal and let our higher self answer back… train ourselves to hear what is being said.
  • Ask questions regularly throughout our day, on any decisions, and listen for the answer.
  • When we get a clear answer to our questions, we should follow it, for this will empower the connection and build trust between Self.

Again, finding the connection inside ourself is unique and personal, and as we do you this, we will become more sensitive to the hearing/feeling/knowing of our Self. There are metaphysical tools available that can also be helpful, like pendulums, tarot cards, I-ching, etc. We can use these tools to confirm our answers if we are uncertain about any of the answers we got. But if we use any of these tools, (same with writing), make sure to direct your questions to your higher self only. Otherwise, some random spirit passing by will answer, and the results will get messy and confusing. 

 

Be precise. Our questions need to be clear and precise, or we will get unclear answers. If the answers are sometimes confusing, it will be because the questions might not be accurate or precise enough for what we want to know. Learning how to ask questions is also part of the practice. Enjoy creating a deeper relationship with Self.

Infinite Enlightenment

Recently, someone asked me “What does “infinite enlightenment” mean to you?”

As I began to answer this question, I realized this was a very insightful question. Find my reply to the request below.

Infinite Enlightenment is the paradoxical goal of our higher self. It is what we innately aspire towards. However, the very nature of infinity makes it unattainable. We will never reach our goal. And regardless of the unattainable goal, the journey happens anyway!

The term Infinite Enlightenment reflects who we are in a nutshell. We are infinite beings who will infinitely work towards knowing or becoming enlightened to our own infinity. We are fractals of light, which have no ending or beginning and so our understanding of Self can never be entirely realized. There will always be more for us to evolve into.

What Is Real?

What is real? What does real mean? The basis for all spiritual growth is to know what is real. Once we KNOW what is real, everything else will begin to make sense and fall into place. Is this 3-D life, which our soul incarnated into real? What part of this life is real or not real? Is our higher self real? Is our soul real?

These are the questions we must answer for ourselves to grow and evolve on our spiritual path. The answers to these questions are the basis for our peace and joy. When these questions get answered, like dominos, our other questions will begin to get answered and our understanding will grow.

No one else can answer this question for us. Others can point to the answer, but it will not help us until we know and discover the answer for ourselves. We are the key to the answer and we should look inward, inside our own being for our being, to “lighten” ourselves with True Understanding.

The Shadow Self

Recently I was asked about my shadow self. You will find my response to the request below.

In shadow psychology, Carl Jung stated the shadow to be the unknown dark side of the personality. According to Jung, the shadow, in being instinctive and irrational, is prone to psychological projection, in which a perceived personal inferiority is recognized as a perceived moral deficiency in someone else. ~ Wikipedia

From my perspective, I no longer have what is thought to be a shadow self. I have a human self, and a soul and higher self and they are now integrated. As the process of integration was happening, the so-called shadow part of me dissolved away.

We are all beings of light that have briefly incarnated into human bodies. For my self, I prefer to focus on, or identify with, the being of light which I am, and who I am in the higher dimensions rather than the brief human. By doing so, the human element of me has awakened at higher dimensional levels than I was previously, and the shadow self vanished.

With the vanishment of the shadow self, we can live an infinite life, while in the human body. This is where we find our inner peace and happiness and shine the light for others. May you find and become your true self.

You Might Be an Ascended Master

Someone recently asked me: “In spiritual and metaphysical circles, what is an Ascended Master?

The ‘Ascended Masters’ is a sanctioned group or a brotherhood of spirit beings on the other side. These beings, channel, or speak through human mediums. The term ‘Ascended Master’ is ambiguous, however.  To ascend means to rise, but these beings have not yet mastered ascension. No one ever masters ascension as it is a neverending process. Many of us awakened, ‘lightworkers’ on the planet, could also call ourselves ‘Ascended Masters’ if we wanted. Why because we have already ascended as spirit beings, and our human self is waking up to this knowledge.

Not all beings perceive reality from the same dimension. This includes all beings on both sides of the veil, and who are being channeled by humans. Perceptions of reality are relative and are subject to the dimension our consciousness perceives from. The information from a channeled Ascended Master can be spiritually helpful for some of us in human bodies, but can also be poisonous for others of us. This why part of the spiritual path is the learning of discernment.

For the most part, the consciousness of these ‘Ascended Masters’ is that of the 5th dimension. Many don’t realize, but spiritually speaking, the 5th dimension is a lower dimension, from my perspective. The ‘Ascended Masters’ sound lofty when speaking, but this is because the human body does not obstruct them, and being on the other side, they have easy access to information. However, their consciousness is not more evolved than many of the lightworkers, and this is why we might find their information distorted and confusing.

The consciousness of an ‘Ascended Master’ means only they have evolved beyond the third and fourth dimensions of the human teaching field. But again, in the spiritual realm, this is considered low in the consciousness spectrum. I don’t wish to judge this group of beings because their work is needed and helpful for many. My intention is to help with the understanding of what an ‘Ascended Master’ means spiritually.

The planet Earth and her school consist of thirteen dimensions. When I hear any of the ‘Ascended Masters’ or any other fifth-dimensional being speak through a medium (mediums also have their own filters of distortions), it sounds like word-salad to me. Their information and teachings might be helpful to those who are just starting to awaken. But, if you are already awake, these beings will teach you discernment; It might be the decrement to realize your consciousness is more evolved than their’s is! It is kind of rare, for a being above the 5th dimension, to be regularly channeled through a medium unless it is the medium’s own higher self. This is one of the many reasons I wanted to develop my connection with my own higher self and to get my own information.

Decrement is an essential lesson for all of us to learn, and those who call themselves the ‘Ascended Masters’ help teach this valuable lesson. And if you find their information useful…. Wonderful! We are all meant to grow beyond our teachers, and ultimately, we are each our own teacher. So when the words of the ‘Ascended Masters’ sound confusing or like word salad, it is okay, as it means our consciousness has grown beyond the Fifth dimension. ‘Ascended Masters’ serve as a marker for conscious awareness on the spiritual path, and this is a good thing.

Rising Above the Difficulties

I was recently asked: “What was the difficult life experience you had, which propelled your spiritual journey most?”

Here is the short story of the answer to this question. My most profound awakening came about ten years ago after the sudden death of my beloved, long-term partner. Between the disease which quickly, ravished him, and the drama taking place around him with his family, I started to have panic attacks. It was a time of confusing happenings, and my emotions and PTSD from the previous stress in my life were out of control. How could he leave me alone in this crappy world? What was I going to do without him?

The only thing I could do was to let go of everything. I deeply surrendered everything, all my attachments, both mentally and physically. I also let go of seventy percent of my belongings and moved away to where I wouldn’t be continuously reminded of our relationship and the pain of losing him and what I went through. Moving away also meant I wouldn’t have interaction anymore with his toxic family.

Not long after my move, I could see the effect my deep surrender had on my consciousness. A whole new level of perceiving reality opened for me. Since then, I have continued the practice surrendering and letting go of any mental and physical attachments when they arise. And because of this, my life continues to be transformed.

This life is a school, and hardships are purposefully designed for us to go through, and then we must rise above the difficulty and shine like the light which we are. This is how we the human, provide growth to our higher self and soul. I am sure the hardships I shared, also helped me to burn away old karma, which kept my soul bound to Earth. If we can trust that there is deeper reasoning for the difficulties we experience on our path, it will help with letting go of the pain of attachment.

What Higher Self Wants

Recently I was asked the question, “What does my higher self want from me”?

Your higher self wants you to grow and to do and be the best you can do and be so that they can evolve and grow in the higher dimensions of light. Your higher self wants you to become sensitive to its desires and for you to come fully into the understanding that you as a human being is only a small part of who you are.

Your higher self isn’t that concerned about your human desires because, in a sense, your human self is illusionary, a mask, and not the most authentic part of your self. Your human self is a temporary representative of self. When you come to realize this fully, it will make your higher self very happy indeed.

Our higher self loves us and designed the perfect life for the growth of Self. In the new year, let us all be true to our higher selves and reflect the higher dimensions in all that we are, so the Earth and other beings are blessed with the gift of the real us.  Happy New Year to All.

Raising Our Awareness

I was recently asked, “how did you raise your awareness to enter a higher dimension?”

My power as a human is limited in this matter. Yes, certain things were done, but the force behind me is my soul and higher self, and this is where the credit needs to go. Giving our higher self all the credit in our lives is the secret to raising one’s awareness. Because it is behind the realization, that we are not in control of our lives. We do not have power as humans, as most humans think we do to make things happen.

The more we surrender to this understanding, the more of a total vehicle we are able to become for our higher selves. When we, as a human, become entirely aware that this life is their life, our consciousness will be raised higher as the ego becomes diminished.

When I aligned myself with this awareness and surrendered my ego to the desires of my higher self, is when my greater awareness came. When I let go of all my own (the ego’s) plans and desires and acknowledged this life as higher self’s life, is when I entered into the most elevated of dimensions that are available in this Earth School. My consciousness raised to where my higher self lives in the higher dimensions.

Seeing Dimensions

Recently I was asked this question: “Why can’t we see the higher dimensions, but we can see the lower dimensions?”

I can only answer this from a spiritual perspective. At this time, this Earth school is designed primarily to be happening in the third dimension, a lower dimension. So, the vision of what our physical eyes can see is going to be limited. However, regardless, if we are able, we can see and recognize the higher dimensions. Seeing the higher dimensions requires a different kind of vision.

The higher dimensions are more subtle in appearance and can be easily overlooked and will not be seen at all by those who have yet to develop their third eye or 6th Chakra. If you can’t see the higher dimensions, this means your higher self hasn’t yet evolved into the 6th dimension or you the human, has yet to evolve to where your higher self is.

At this time on Earth, to see beyond what the third-dimensional eyes can see, we need to use our connection to our higher self in the higher dimensions to see. We expand our vision by developing a conscious relationship with who we are in the higher dimensions. As beings, we are only able to see to the degree of the dimension our higher self has expanded into.

Once our human self is awakened into its full potential of the higher self, we can then push the boundaries to help our higher self expand beyond the current dimensions where they reside. This is why incarnation into the human body is so valuable.

To have a human with this potential is very powerful for our soul and higher self. The human becomes the pioneer for new growth and expansion to happen in the higher dimensions for our greater being. This kind of growth is a push-pull event, whereby all the selves (soul, higher self and physical self), work as a team to grow our being.

Spiritual Awakening and Shift Timeline

Golden Universe by Sheilan

Recently someone asked me this question “I believe to be experiencing a Spiritual Awakening, does anyone have any advice? What are the real signals of it?’ See my reply below and also and timeline update about the coming shift.

Anytime we have new spiritual growth or awakening, at first, the difference between our old perceptions and the fresh, new perceptions are very pronounced. We have many “aha-moments,” and the perceptions are shiny and new and exciting. We can get a little intoxicated and high from it all. However, as we grow into the new perceptions of awareness, the shininess wears off as it becomes our new normal awareness.

When this happens, we might feel we are stuck or stagnant because now it is back to business and lessons as usual. Still, in reality, we have just gotten used to the new perceptions, and we tend to get little addicted to the high and excitement of being in a new learning phase, with all the new “aha-moments.” Going through the new stage and being patient with the old phase, is part of the process of becoming lighter, and we need to embrace it all, even when it seems nothing is happening in our growth. Enjoy your journey!

Shift timeline update: We are just coming out of a two-month-long window of a possibility for the shift to occur. It was indicated to me last week it was recently decided that the final portion of the shift would not happen for another 2-3 years or so. It seems the Earth has decided to delay the shift yet again but will continue to shift into the higher dimensions in small ways. For us, this means that after this window closes, it will become more comfortable for a time, as it has been an intense couple of months. Also, this last window showed me, in the future, it will take a major window like this one, for the final shift to happen. We are passing through the most powerful window I have witnessed thus far while monitoring the shift since 1997.

The shift is going to happen. When we have the understanding, this Earth is a school and a dream reality, and the shift is part of the schooling, the process is less intense to handle. Hang on my friends, we are in this together and we can do it. If you are in Spokane, WA or know others who are, I am starting a circle to support ascension through the shift process. Love and light your way.

Matrix Reality? Real Or Fake?

Recently I was asked: “Is it possible for a person to live in a shack and feel happiness or inner joy? If so, then what does this mean for our societies? Is everything fake and artificial in our world? Are we living in a matrix reality that we have created? What is real?”

There are many levels of answers to your question. Spirit or soul energy is the only thing (or non-thing) that is “Real.” Out of all that we see touch, or whatever is considered to have substance is ultimately not real. Nature contains the most spirit or soul energy, and so it is the closest of all of us in 3-D to being Real. The more evolved a higher self is, the more real they are becoming.

I am thankful for that which is real. We are One in realness”

Our soul and spirit exist beyond the material world, and we can consciously connect with our more real selves and experience deep joy and bliss, regardless of where our human self might be. The thing you call the matrix is a multi-dimensional school designed and run by the Earth to evolve our spirit or higher selves in the higher dimensions. The lower, denser dimensions of the school are less real than the higher dimensions of the school.  The higher dimensions have fewer distortions and are filled with the purer spirit.

The teaching field, where we the human avatars are, is about to get a reboot. The semester of our current classroom is coming to an end soon. This is why the lessons have become more intense. After the reboot, the new Earth will happen in dimensions that will seem more real than the current dimensions we are living in.

A new, bright, and shiny semester will start soon, and it will be harmonious for a long time. Some religions call this period on Earth “the Golden Age” or “Heaven on Earth” or “Age of Aquarius.” The peaceful time on Earth will last for a few thousand years, and then the regular teachings of struggle and strife will return on the teaching field.

The more evolved our higher selves become, the more aware, we the humans, are of our spiritual nature. And the more evolved we become, our growth will become less painful. When our spirit or higher self has learned what we came here to learn, we can move on from incarnating onto the teaching field, and we can graduate from this Earth school.

Attacks and Psychic Attachments

Recently I was asked this question: “What is entity removal? And what is it when the soul of a deceased person attaches to a living person?”

If the deceased is someone you know, there may be a soul agreement between your higher self or spirit self and their spirit self. The agreement might be that you help them to go into the light, or help them complete something so they can go into the light and the higher dimensions, and out of the 4th-dimensional realm where they are stuck. We can do this while in a meditative state and visualizing an opening or portal into the 5th dimension and instructing them to go into the opening. Work with your own angel and their angel.

If it is a genuine attachment and not something agreed upon by our higher selves, then yes, the being needs to release itself because it is trespassing. There are universal laws against this kind of intrusion, and most beings will release from us when we tell them they are trespassing, and we don’t want them attached to our person or space, and they need to leave.

If we are dealing with a very dark entity, this can sometimes take a few days of being adamant they leave and asking for help by calling upon our angelic protectors. If we keep at it, stay calm and surround ourselves with light and humor, they will eventually give up, release and leave. I have also found using salt crystals visualizations to be a strong repellant to pesky entities who don’t want to detach. I surround my body with salt in my visualizations, and often the entities will repel. Often when new growth of our being happens, gaps in our aura can occur that we have yet to fill, and this is where we can be susceptible to 4th-dimensional attachments with dark entities. When entities attach to my aura, I feel dizzy, and sort of like I am coming down with something.

In the 3rd and 4th dimensions, dark energies will attack lighter energies. What most people have yet to realize is, the brighter a being is, the more attacks they will need to deal with from others who are less bright. They become beacons and targets for other beings who have envy issues. Darker energies will go after the lighter energy when, the more luminous energy might be vulnerable in some way. With 3rd dimensional attacks, these attacks are often done in secret and disguised to look like something else. Often the person doing the attacking doesn’t have full awareness of their envy or hatred towards others and ultimately themselves. When these attacks come from beings we are close with, we will need to distance ourselves from these individuals because their envy and attacks will most likely continue.

Dealing with attachments and attacks is all part of our Earth schooling. I always ask for protection from my angel when leaving the house and when I go to bed. This doesn’t eliminate all the attacks, but it does help. I hope this information is useful. Stay strong!

Enlightenment and Emotions


Recently, I was asked if enlightenment meant the loss of all emotions and why?

Yes and no, and here is why. Some emotions no longer happen because they are ego driven and no longer necessary, while other emotions continue because they are authentic. It happens this way because the grip of the ego on our being has lessened, and the ego’s emotions no longer run havoc in one’s life.

After enlightenment has transpired, our being becomes or feels more balanced, with not so many up and downs as before enlightenment had happened. And part of what brings about our enlightened state is doing the work of healing the past-life emotional wounds from our auric field.

Enlightenment doesn’t come all at once, as it is an ongoing process. One gets used to the emotions becoming more balanced, and it becomes the new normal until it is difficult to remember what was life before enlightenment. Enlightenment is more ordinary than what is imagined by most people. Most enlightened people go unnoticed, and they are only known in our society because it is their life lesson or path to be well known.

Being Aware of Being Aware

 Recently, someone asked me if ‘being aware of being aware’ is the only spiritual practice we need to focus on?

Yes, at a particular stage, it pretty much all comes down to this. The path becomes pretty simple and basic. It becomes a practice of ‘nonattachment’ from our desires. When we become aware of an attachment, we adjust to becoming nonattached. We pay attention when we need to change in some way to keep our self clean from any thought-forms which might snag or imprison us.

There might be times when an emotional issue or past wound will come to the surface, and we will be called to self examine or heal another layer from the past. After the issues are seen and worked on, we continue to be in awareness until there is something else to address. As we go, the emotional issues and wounds become less and less, and we become more joyful and free from incumbrances.

Because we have become freer, we might be given more knowledge into the workings of the universe. If so, we should humbly, take in the information, and work with it to expand our understanding while we stay in awareness. And at some point, staying in awareness will become second nature or who we are, and we won’t need to practice, to practice it anymore.

Dark Night Of The Soul #2

I was asked recently, once again, to speak about the coming shift and the collective dark night of the soul, and where we can look for support while we are personally in the process.

The dark night of the soul teaches us what doesn’t kill us will make us stronger. It is a time in which we start to realize we are not in control of our lives like we thought we were. It is possible during such a cycle, we might not have people around us who have had such an experience and can support and understand our process. Your higher self will send people or a person to you for your support if this is something you require.

Usually, at this time on our path, we are our own best company to keep. We know what adjustments need to happen within ourselves during this time and what issues need pondering, and we don’t need to be distracted from our work. As everything gets stripped away from us, we might feel like dying. It can also be a time of mourning for the death or diminishing of our ego-self, which will make room for the new us to emerge when we are ready.

Many around us, who do not understand what is happening to us, might feel uncomfortable about what is taking place. If you need others for support in the process, I would seek out spiritual people who are sincere and wise, and perhaps have gone through such a thing already.

Collectively, we are in a holding period at the moment, which makes it challenging to move forward, and it’s exhausting. There are astrological reasons for this, and also because of the larger cycle of the coming shift. During this time, our job as a lightworker, is to keep focused on our goals, even thou there seems to be no movement happening. It helps when we understand we are in a holding pattern and not to get frustrated or lose our hope when the motion is so slow. I have witnessed these holding patterns a few times before, as they are connected to possible windows for the shift to happen and for us to awaken into a new, higher-dimensional dream.

During similar times in the past, I witnessed the Earth deciding not to go forward with the shift, but to wait. She chose to delay the completion of this old dream for a few more years. The delay allows for more extreme lessons on the current 3-D teaching field. It also enabled lightworkers to ascend higher than the 5th Dimension, which was the initially planned density of the beginning of the new dream. Many don’t realize the delays from 26 years ago, evolved the lightworkers, beyond the density of the 5th dimension for the new dream. We have been at the precipice of the shift for 26 years now, and I have been watching the delays since then. This is also when I went through my third dark night of the soul, personally. During this time, memories arose of pervious dreams and shifts my being was involved in.

At this time, it appears the beginning of the new dream will happen in the 6th to 9th dimensions or densities. The veils between the teaching field and the other side will be very thin. Right now, thou, this current window feels different from the other windows we passed, by, so we shall see what happens with this window. All we can do is ride the wave and watch. None of us are alone or without challenges now. It helps to remember everything is alright, ultimately, and we are being guided and cared for through this very significant time.

Be gentle on yourself and others, and one day we will wake up in a very advanced, futuristic, peaceful world as the new teaching field.

Dark Night of The Soul

I was asked to speak about the “dark night of the soul” and my personal experience of it. Below is what I said:

As a lightworker, to do and be what I was designed for in this incarnation, I needed my attachments and limiting beliefs to be stripped away. In our life, this is precisely what the dark night of the soul does. Throughout my life, I have been through many dark nights of the soul. Transformation is indeed painful, but necessary if we are to grow into a butterfly.

Through this transformational process, I learned the importance of letting go so that I can live my life now practicing continual letting go. It is surprising how easy it is to forget to let go and why it is an ongoing practice. After experiencing so many dark nights of the soul, the ego becomes diminished enough that we realize we can live in perpetual transformation, by using the dynamics of unattachment and acceptance. It is much more enjoyable to accept what needs to be accepted rather than to stay in resistance against something.

Collectively, the Earth is in the process and going through a type of dark night of the soul, and will come out the other side into a new dream or teaching field, which will be less dense. Until we make the shift into the higher frequency, the reality we are in now on the teaching field, will continue to be challenging and a bit crazy. We are very close to this event taking place now… literally it could happen any day now.

Peace to all of you and hold on tight. The ride will be over soon, and it will be worth all the hardships. 🙂

A Need for Struggle and Strife

I was recently asked this question: “Is it more often than not struggle and strife which makes people spiritual?”

Pain is a great motivator, and yes, because of this growth is painful. We are naturally spiritual beings. Earth is a school for beings to learn and grow and evolve. Part of the curriculum of the school is for us to grow through tough lessons, aided by a system that some call karma.

Karma is a learning system whereby we are held accountable for all our actions. Our spirit self needs to heal the parts of ourself, which are damaged and to balance our self with all other energies.

The more evolved we become, the more aware we are of our spiritual nature. And the more evolved we become, growing can become less painful. When our spirit or higher self has learned what we came here to learn, we can move on from incarnating into the third dimension and graduate from this Earth school.

The semester of our current classroom is coming to an end soon. This is why the lessons have become more intense. A new, bright, and shiny semester will start soon, and all will be right with the world for a time. Some religions call this period on Earth “the Golden Age” or “Heaven on Earth” or “Age of Aquarius”.  The peaceful time on Earth will last for a few thousand years, and then the regular teachings of struggle and strife will return on the teaching field.

We can mitigate the pain of growth by learning to let go and go with the flow of our life rather than resist what is happening. When we remember life in these human bodies is a school, and we are the representative for the real student who is our higher self, life seems to be less painful as we grow.

Synchronicity and Spiritual Awakening

I was asked recently if seeing synchronicities are a proof of a spiritual awakening?

Yes, seeing synchronicity at work could be considered a degree of awakening. Also, it depends on what your definition of spiritual awakening is. Maybe we could say that seeing synchronicities might mean, we have woke up enough to be able to see the connection of everything, but we might not totally understand it yet.

There is a web to creation and to life’s happenings in the third dimension. Synchronicities are continually happening, but we might not always see them. It seems when a newly awakened person sees them, they place greater meaning on the happenings, than a person who is further along on their awakening journey. Synchronistic incidents for beings who are further along, and more awake is just sort of business as usual and how things are, and they expect to see them.

When we begin to notice synchronicities and such, that we previously weren’t aware of, it might be because we are opening up to a new dimension from what we were previously perceiving from. In the beginning, we see the differences from the old dimension to the new one very clearly. And then over time, we get accustomed to the perceptions, and everything becomes business as usual until we reach the next new dimensional understanding and perception.

Is it Mind or Higher Self Speaking?

Higher Self by Sheilan

Recently, I was asked by someone, “how will I know if it is my mind or my higher self speaking or telling me to do something?

This requires us to dig deep and investigate, study, and practice observation of our self for a long time. Then, over time, we begin to tune into the frequency of our higher self more quickly, and we just sort of know we are dialed in. This is why meditation has become so popular because it helps us to become quiet and more aware of our higher self and our ego. Higher self’s guidance is a little more subtle than our intellect/mind. It is our intuition and gut feelings, whereas the ego’s vibration is more dense and irritating, judgmental, and attached.

It can be tricky and confusing if we are already listening to our higher self, but we doubt what the guidance is, or when we hear the voice of the ego louder because we have an attachment to what we want the outcome to be. Often, we are attached without realizing we are biased in some way, to the issue.

When I have uncertainty around something, I consciously practice non-attachment so that when I ask higher self my questions around what to do, I can feel, hear, know the answer with greater clarity. We can ask our questions as many times as we need and in many different ways until we are sure we have received the intended answer.

When we practice listening and following the voice of our higher self, we support the awakened awareness of our higher self becoming louder within our being.

Guarding Against Self-Deception

I was recently asked, “how do we guard against self-deception while on our spiritual path?”

This is an excellent question for those of us who sincerely want to evolve in the higher dimensions and want to support our growth process and not just grow when we are challenged and forced into it.

If we stay honest with ourself and are always hungry to know more than we do, because we value our own growth over that of our ego’s opinion and how we look to others, we will do okay. We must stay open and be willing to question our own and other people’s ideas and concepts and perceptions of reality. Question everything over and over again and be prepared to trade up when we find new concepts or perceptions which seem more evolved than the thoughts we hold or have been working with.

Truth cannot be written in stone. It is valuable for us to know that all states of enlightenment are relative. The journey in consciousness awakening to itself is never-ending. Hopefully, we will outgrow our beliefs and understandings many times over during the course of our lifetime.

Important Part of Spiritual Practice

Recently someone asked me, “what is the most important thing you do in your spiritual practice and why?”

Each person has obviously a very unique way they maneuver on the road to growth. I have stayed inquisitive about existence and question the why of everything. The constant questioning has led me to unravel many of the mysteries of who am I and why am I here and what is this Earth thing? Even tho I no longer have deep desires to know many things, because these questions have been answered, I continue to ponder in my way further out into realms where my human brain has trouble holding on.

The inner pondering, or internal research as I call it, has broadened my perspective tenfold. In the past, the answers out there to life’s riddles from others seemed full of holes and misnomers, and so I worked at solving these riddles for myself, with the help of my higher self. Don’t listen to other’s who tell you it is impossible to know such things and maybe for them it is. If there are questions to something which pull at you for answers, keep at it until that answer is fulfilled and you feel satiated and at peace.

I have written other articles on ways to communicate with one’s higher self, so I won’t go into this at this time.  I will say, the relationship with our higher self and to be able to open up the connection and practice communication with Self, is vital for our growth. I urge all to nurture this relationship so you can make the most of it in this life as it will significantly enhance and speed up one’s spiritual growth. Whatever baby steps, we can take in this direction is worth our efforts.

Would you like to know why I picked this May photo of the lilacs, for this August post? Because this is the image, my higher self told me she wanted to use today. This is the only reason! I practice being at her command at all times. Compared to the whole of existence, my human self is like that little drop of water on the flower in the photo.  And the only desire this drop has is to merge itself with the whole of who I am. May Oneness be yours today.

Going Against Our Heart!

Recently someone asked me, “What happens spiritually when you go against your heart and deny yourself what you truly want in life?”

This is not an easy question to answer because some people think their ego desires are their hearts desires. Not everyone is aligned with the desire of their higher self. We have a lot of narcissists in our society who are cut off from their intuition and the guidance of their higher self. People are often uncertain as to what and who they follow for their guidance. This is because they lack the full understanding of their higher self and why they should choose their higher selves desires over the desires of their ego. And perhaps they don’t have the will power to align with their higher self, and in the case of narcissists, they will not have the ability.

There are only these two choices for guidance. We are either following the choice of our ego or our higher self and yes, sometimes both of these will make the same choice, which of course makes the decision easier. How can we tell the difference in our choices? If it is an important choice, we should give our self some time, if possible, to be sure of the decision. I practice feeling and hearing the answer, and then I shut off my intellect and use a pendulum to confirm the answer with my higher self. I will also ask the question in different ways to make sure of the answer I am getting. Once I feel I have the correct answer, I will follow it. This is the method I have been using for years.

We can also practice trying on the different choices and paying attention to what the alternative feels like. Some people work with the tarot cards for confirmations or the I-Ching. When we get to a stage on our path, where we recognize it is essential always to follow our higher self, this is what we do. If we do something else other than this, for whatever reason, we will be haunted by the choice and never feel good about the decision we made and not following our spirit.

All the choices we make are to teach us to learn to follow our spirit in all things… following our spirit becomes our heart’s desire and what we want above all else. I hope this answers your question.

We Are That Which Created Us

I was asked recently to answer, “In a very simplified way, what are higher vibrations and higher consciousness, and why do we need it for our soul life purpose?” Find my succinct answer below.

Because this is who we are. We are higher vibrations and higher consciousness. Earth is a school, and we are here to learn who we are and what we are, in all our many forms and dimensions. How far can we expand into our being and raise our consciousness? We are that which created us. Our being is infinite, and this is why enlightenment is a never-ending process of becoming our True Self. This is true evolution, and what is really taking place… and everything else is a dream!

What Happens to Ego-Mind?

I was recently asked, “What happens to the ego-mind when one transforms into their higher self?”

As we grow to become more of our higher self, our ego-mind becomes diminished. It is still present. However, our higher self overshadows it, while it exists in the background of our being. The ego-mind is no longer who and what we identify as or who we answer to. We now take all of our guidance and cues from our higher self.

When we invite our higher self into our being, we have made a declaration to our being, at some level, that this life belongs to the higher self. We have the recognition that our life is an instrument for our higher self to use… it is the higher self’s life. When we reinforce this sincere choice over and over, the power the ego has in our life is gone. This takes place over time, within stages of awareness, as we come into a broader understanding of Reality and who and what we are.

The Pendulum Is A Great Tool

Léon Foucault: Rotation Of Earth Interactive Doodle by Google

I was recently asked the question: “I just got a spiritual pendulum, do you have any tips on how I can improve my spirituality?”

The pendulum can be an excellent tool. Don’t listen to the naysayers. If you work and practice with it, it can help you to deepen your relationship with your higher self and can teach you to become more intuitive or psychic. It can also help you with your health. You must be clear and precise with your questions, and who you are asking otherwise you will get wishy-washy results. If you don’t name who you are asking, any unenlightened, out-of-body being can answer. This is not good. Realizing this is what made a big difference for me in getting accurate answers years ago.

If you want to deepen your relationship with your higher self, ask your higher self your questions, and practice listening for the answers as your pendulum is being moved. Your higher self can pretty much answer anything you would want to know. If you want to know about your health, diet, and body, ask your body for the answers. Your body is smart and can guide you on how to take better care of it… like what foods it wants to eat to stay healthy.

When asking questions, in order to get precise information, we must be neutural and nonattached to the answers. If we are biased so will be the answer. Our questions must be precise. This goes for all guidance tools one might be use.

I recommend finding pendulum charts online or in a book or makeing your own. Books can give you many good ideas about how you can use your pendulum. Just know that it takes a little time and effort for this tool of communication to be developed into something useful. However, once you have it, you will be a fan for life.

Relationships Change After Awakening

I was recently asked the question “When you spiritually awaken why do the relationships of those close to you feel different?” Below is my answer to this question.

The more we awaken, the more we become sovereign beings and complete within our self. We are no longer emotionally tied to others in the same way we were previously. Our relationships with others become non-personal relationships. The relationships most people have with each other are emotionally, personal and emotionally binding. They become emotionally enmeshed with each other or what some call co-dependent where personal boundaries are diffused.

As we grow spiritually, we learn to balance our emotions and we let go of relationships with emotional dependencies because we value our own sovereignty and enlightenment above all else. As we awaken, the emotional ties to everything loosen, until we become free emotionally from others and the reality of the material. By freeing the emotional bonds we have with others, we make room for our higher self to become more prominent in our being.

What Spiritual Path Do I Follow?

I was recently asked “What version of a spiritual path do you follow”? Read my answer below.

I follow my MaRae’s version, who is my higher self or spirit self in the higher dimensions. It is her path and legacy I am participating in. I am merely her representative in human form. It is with great honor that I have come to know her and to know this is who I am in the higher dimensions. I follow her guidance and preferences in all things for I recognize this life is hers and so it is her spirituality I follow.

My spirituality is individual (as is the case for all of us) and comes from the highest of the Earth’s dimensions. I have memories of past lives on this earth as well as from other star systems. MaRae is part of a group of souls who have come to Earth on a mission and we will be soon leaving when the Earth school shifts into the next dream cycle for teaching. We are currently helping to prepare individuals for the coming shift, which is soon to come.

This was a good question because it brought forth an insightful answer that many can relate to as they have watched their own paths change over the years. What version of a spiritual path do you follow? Each of us has a unique tailor-made path because of the life our higher self designed for us.

If we are involved with the teachings from another being or for a time, it means there ia an attunement and vibrational alignment happening in the higher dimensions. Often times our higher self will use other’s teachings for us, as a stepping off point into new doorways, which will then take our being even further than the original teacher’s teachings. This is how we work together as a team to serve each other for the betterment of all.

Angel Experiences

Angels Among Us by Sheilan

Recently I was asked: “Have you ever come face to face with an angel and did that encounter change your whole spiritual perception?”

I have had many experiences with angels. My first experience was when I was in my twenties, forty-something years ago. I was newly married at the time and we had been fighting and the relationship just was not working. It was in the evening and I was in a darkened bedroom crying deeply because I had been spiritually guided to get married, and now it wasn’t working and I felt stuck and miserable and didn’t know where to turn. As I cried, the room became golden in light and I felt a deep calmness and presence, which assured me everything was going to be alright and it was.

Thou I did not see an angel’s form that night, their light and presence were seen and felt. I thought of this experience many times through the years, to give myself strength and a reminder that I am never alone on my path. The next experience I had was about seven years after this. I was participating in a small, transformational workshop in which we were doing bodywork to release old stuck energy. While I was peacefully laying there after releasing much old energy, I crossed through the veils and I could hear the music of the spheres and I was allowed to say in that energy for along time and participate with my voice in their angelic music. It was incredibly peaceful, beautiful and meaningful. It showed me how close the other side of the veil is to our third dimensional world and music of the spheres does exist.

A few years after this joyful experience, I was in Guatemala with a friend and ate some bad food. I got really sick and at one point, I started to leave my body. As I lay there, I was aware that the veil between our worlds had dissolved and I was in both this third dimension, as well as the dimensions on the other side of the veil.  I could hear my spirit guides and my angel protector discussing the situation and what to do. As it was not my time to leave this life, a few minutes later, I was shoved back into my body. This experience again confirmed for me we are never alone on our paths. We are protected by angels and other guides who help us on our journey while we are in these third dimensional bodies.

I have had many different kind of angel experiences and thou I have never seen an angel’s form other than bright light and heard their voices, I can always feel their presence powerfully. I have had many channeled experiences with angels of many ranks coming in to speak with me and I always enjoy their presence. These days angels are more integrated into my life and thou I am grateful for the work they do, I do not place them on a pedestal or feel they are beyond my reach.  I call upon their help for my protection every day. I consider them as my friends. Spiritually, I now have a better understanding of their role within the cosmos as well as my own. Angels are available to all of us and will come to our aide when they are called upon by us.

How Long Does Purging Take?

I was asked recently: “How long does the purging period take for one’s pre-spiritual life (ridding of toxic friends, unhealthy lifestyle habits, behaviors that no longer resonate with you?”

I can’t really say how long this might take as it is unique to each individual and all situations. It may seem like there is a before and after to our becoming spiritual, but in reality, all life is spiritual and there is no before and after time. For myself, once I get the clear message that change needs to happen in my life, I try and make the changes as quickly and as gracefully as I can, for all the involved parties. My energy always wants to move quickly into what is next for me.

The purging processes is an ongoing process which lasts for the whole of our life. There will always be people who enter our lives, who we will eventually need to let go of for various reasons. We need to keep growing after we received the lesson or fulfilled the karma for why that person was in our life. Along the way, we will always be making lifestyle changes, which supports new growth. After learning to make better choices and to be more discerning as to who and what we let into our lives, the purging can become more refined.

Purging is a sacred, necessary process for us to fully move into the next vibration waiting for us. If we can bless the beings and things and the parts of our self we are letting go of and be kind about it, it is best. We must be responsible for our choices. Purging with consciousness helps us to be more mindful of being a student of the Earth School and to realize every part of existence is designed for our growth and the growth of others. The more we let into our life, the more we will be held responsible for the caring and the letting go of when we or they need to move on. Purging is a lesson in living in balance as well as a lesson in non-attachment and taking responsibility for all of our actions at all levels.

New Earth Update and Chat Sessions

Are We There Yet?

I was recently told by MaRae, my higher self, that the Earth has decided to extend the Earth’s current schooling cycle for two to four more years. The extension gives the Earth the opportunity for deeper and intense lessons to be learned and more transformation to take place. So hang on everyone…. “It’s not over till the fat lady sings.”

This also gives us lightworkers a chance to refocus on what is next for us and our own service of shining the light for others. Four to six more years means, much more darkness and weirdness in the world, so hold on to your precious humor and travel with the flow and rhythm of your higher guidance. Thou it is fascinating to watch it all unravel, it is also heartbreaking to see all the suffering happening. The only way out of this cycle gracefully is for all of us to do our part and stay balanced, grounded and connected to our higher self. It is a must to ask for angelic protection each time we go to sleep or leave the house. We must beware of darkness running amok, causing harm where it can.

MaRae has indicated to me, she would like me to once again offer one-on-one chat sessions and classes. I dropped out from this for a few years and I grew my being more so I could stand fully in the energy of my higher self. And now that we are in the last stretch of this Earth’s teaching cycle, before the New Earth begins, I am being asked to be available during these challenging times. So, I am here and available if there is a need. I have kept my prices affordable to help all.

One more thing I would like to say and that is to enjoy this precious life and honor your body and self for all your efforts and all the hard work you have done on yourself. The Earth feels confident she can go another 4-6 years because there is enough light now from the lightworkers to help keep a balance from darker energies taking over. This is wonderful really. This means in the New Earth, lightworkers who will be choosing to go into this cycle, will be able to experience even higher dimensions now. Also, with the added time, more beings, in general, will have a chance to raise their vibrations to qualify to transfer into the New Earth cycle. So let’s rejoice and be grateful for whatever is and “what will be will be!”

How Awakening Changes Our Life

One’s life does change after a spiritual awakening. Each time one has a spiritual awakening their life changes. The perceptions we once had of reality no longer fit. All levels of awakening are different, so all levels of perceptions of reality will be different. But what ultimately happens is the dream which makes this third-dimensional existence seem real falls away. One sees the dream and knows it is only temporary and not reality. One understands the Oneness of the essence. One’s desires and attachments become diminished bringing peace and tranquility to our being. One looks away from finding any real security from the third dimension, but rather looks to their soul and higher self for their security.

The Hindu tradition has described the spiritual path of learning to become like the lotus flower which rises above the murky waters instead of living in the murky water. After awakenings take place, our being begins to live above the murky water of life. We become elevated from the mundane concerns of existence. We still have the mundane in our life but we are not as focused on it as we once were. We have gained broader perceptions of the whole of life. With this new knowledge comes new responsibilities to the knowledge. We are required to be of service to others in different ways.

There will be many changes to our being the deeper we go into awakening. Much of our strong personality will fall away. Many people will shun us as their being feels threatened by the level of our light. They may attack us in subtle and not so subtle ways. Many of us, on the awakening path, have gone or will go through the strippingaway process. which diminishes the ego. We might find ourselves without others around us who understand what is going on for us. The process of awakening for us can be challenging for the other beings around us.

There is a level of spiritual understanding which believes, we as human beings, manifest what is around us, rather than life being a very complicated, intricate system designed for us to awaken from the dream. Because of their ideas around manifestation, these souls, often judge the more advanced souls, whose life is being stripped away, as “less-than” for not being able to control their destiny and make things happen for themselves. When souls awaken beyond the stage of life being about manifestation, they begin to see life is not about controlling and fulfilling our desires, but rather about waking up from the long dark sleep we as humans find ourselves in.

Who Am I As a Higher Being?

I was recently asked “How do I know my type of soul or how advanced my soul is? How do I find out who I am as a higher being?”

These are good things to wonder about. It might take us a long time to find the answers to this information depending on how connected we are to our higher self and how much understanding we have about reality. Our higher self holds the answers to these questions. Other people who channel beings from the other side can give us insights into our being, but sometimes this information is tainted because they themselves, or who they channel, might not be evolved enough to get the information without distortions of their consciousness.

Part of why this information is meaningful is because the process of getting it for our self can be enriching and can broaden our understanding of reality and how creation works. Sometimes the answers won’t come until we have more understanding of such things… they feed each other. It is a bit of puzzle that we need to put together piece by piece for ourselves. And there is nothing more empowering than having clear communication with our higher self. To be able to live our life with such a connection to Self and to get clear guidance is such a joy.

How I began was, I started connecting with my higher self in meditation and then through journaling and asking questions. I made it clear I was not interested in channeling anyone else but my higher self. It is easy to channel other beings but harder to communicate with one’s higher self. Channeled information from others can sometimes help us to know about our Self. However, I often found the channelings from other beings to be somewhat hit and miss and often came with many distortions. Later on my path, I knew I wanted only the help and information from my own being. I practiced for years and years until now I can ask questions and hear and feel the answers or I can write what I hear if something more lengthy is being conveyed. I am in constant communication with my higher self throughout the day.

Higher self is our intuition and also sends us messages through our feelings and dreams. If I were pondering the answers to something in particular my higher self would often speak to me while I was in the shower. This is probably because I was more open to hearing… going for a walk in nature would have a similar effect.  In order to understand where our being is in the order of things, one needs to understand both the order of things and about their own being… these things go hand in hand.

Endless Levels to Enlightenment

I was recently asked “If there are endless levels to ‘Enlightenment’ what should we be calling the simple realization and acceptance that ‘All is Self’?”

In the past, I have read many enlightened being’s teachings and found altogether they grandly illustrate the varying levels of awakening or enlightenment. Why are there infinite levels of enlightenment? It is because creation exists in infinite dimensions within dimensions, within infinite universes. There is no end!

Our understanding of reality is tied to the dimension our consciousness exists in on the other side. We as humans can only be conscious/awake or enlightened to the dimension which our higher self (spirit self) has evolved into while in the higher dimensions. The chakras of our bodies are tied to all the earth’s dimensions.

The earth is a school of limited dimensions. While here on earth, one’s consciousness or awakening cannot exceed the 13th dimension. Not everyone will graduate from this Earth School in her highest dimensions. When some beings leave here they will go on to other planetary systems (schools) which have higher vibrations than what is available to the Earth.

For others to understand the whole of this answer, their being would need to have evolved into a dimensional understanding which is allowing of this knowledge. It is not the human self which evolves really, but rather, the higher self, spirit-self in the higher dimensions. Having this understanding is another level of enlightenment.

The level of enlightenment which has the understanding that “All is Self” would be the primary understanding of an awakened or enlightened being. One must understand, there are also levels of understanding within this primary understanding of Self. This is yet again, another example of infinite levels of enlightenment or understanding. There will never be a “one-shoe-fits-all” regarding consciousness. And admittedly, some enlightened experiences make it seem like there is the final understanding, until of course, another new level is realized.

While in this human body, we will never be able to identify or name the levels of consciousness, because levels of consciousness are relative. It is impossible to have a standard definition. The confusion around the topic helps with the learning and growing of our being at this 3rd-dimensional level.

I often use the word awakened and levels of awakening instead of the word enlightenment, as it seems to fit and it takes away the authority of the notion of enlightenment from old traditional, teachings, which many have outgrown. Sometimes I use words together like awakening/enlightenment to cover my basis when writing on the topic.  In the end we are using limited words of the third dimension to explain something which is indeed happening beyond the realm of the intellects understanding.

Trouble Standing Up for Themselves

The Path by Sheilan

I was recently asked, “Why do spiritual people generally struggle with being assertive or standing up for themselves?”

This might happen for several reasons. Spiritual people are more consciously aware than non-spirituals, of the consequences of their actions, so they want to be ultra careful not to do anything energetically to create harm or karma and so they will bend over backward to be accommodating. They have spent lifetimes developing their compassion and empathy towards others and are more forgiving which allows them to take more abuse hurled towards them. And finally, because they are aware of karma they may be aware when abuse is aimed at them it might be karmic payback from a past life and maybe they feel they deserve it.

All in all, spiritual beings are learning and growing and willing to go through experiences and treading gently, testing the waters until they become stronger in their being and can stand strong against being ill-treated and can do what is called for in that moment. When they stand in their internal strength, they don’t care what others may think of them, and only want to do what their guidance is asking for.

It behooves us not to judge others for we do not know the cosmic back story of karma and lessons with others.  Lives and lessons are complex and there is never a one way fits all approach for any of us. Usually, we are just doing the best we can with what we have to work with. With this in mind, enjoy the journey and keep on treading softly till you are able to stand firm in your power of Self.

In A Dark Night of the Soul?

I was recently asked if humanity is currently living through a dark night of its collective soul?

In a sense, yes, humanity is going through a type of dark night of the soul experience, but not because there is a collective soul. The reason is more basic. The Earth is a school for spirit or the higher self of a soul. The school exists in many dimensions. The third dimension is a training ground in which beings can incarnate to test what they have learned while in the higher dimensions. Every 10 thousand years or so, the Earth resets the training ground and starts over.

We are currently at the end of a training ground cycle and about to shift into a new training ground cycle. The Earth is using the end of this cycle to get the maximum use of lessons for growth out of the cycle. This is why the intensity of living is so extreme and chaotic. Not all beings who are on the Earth will qualify to enter into the beginning of the New Earth (new cycle) because the frequency at the beginning will be higher than the cycle’s current frequency. They will incarnate later in the cycle when the vibration of training ground accommodates their vibrations and lessons.

The training grounds are designed to seem real. This is why many think we have evolved in our society to where we are today. However, many beings on the planet accurately see that man will not be able to evolve beyond this point, but they don’t understand fully why this is. All seems hopeless to many who are somewhat awake, but not awake enough to understand this cycle is ending and a new cycle is about to begin. There are a handful of people who see the threads into the new cycle and understand what is going on and are sharing the information with others.

The New Earth is Near

We are at the crossroads between the end of one dream cycle and the beginning of the next dream cycle on the teaching field of the earth school.  MaRae, my higher self, was already awakened and was residing in the highest dimensions before coming to earth, so her perspective is unique and supreme. I look forward to sharing some of what I have learned. Here is our new video, I hope it is useful on your journey.

Why We Incarnate

I was recently asked: “If we are higher beings in a temporary incarnation, why is it necessary to incarnate to learn lessons instead of learning them in our higher form?”

All 13 of the dimensions of the earth are part of this earth school. We always have the opportunity to learn and grow. There are some beings in service to this school, as some of the angelics, who have very few incarnations. On the other side, part of the focus is to be of service to others in all the various ways and to help those who have incarnated with their lessons. In order to be really good at helping those who have incarnated, we need to incarnate, so that we have a better understanding of what it is like to be limited by our physicality and by time and to deal with such things as emotions and karma. In the higher dimensions, we also take classes and study various subjects, but at some point, we need to put all our higher dimensional learning to the test by incarnating into physicality.

So we incarnate to test ourselves… we need the denser, 3-D to grow because it is more intense and faster than just growing on the other side in the higher dimensions. The lessons available at this level are more varied, dramatic and extreme. We can explore and experience lessons in physicality which isn’t available in the higher dimensions. Because of the 3-D body’s emotions, we can feel everything more deeply. We can explore all kinds of themes and story lines. We can change our gender and make use of the karmic system, which isn’t available in the higher dimensions.

A handful of higher dimensional beings at the school, are from previous universes and are not required to incarnate into the 3-D unless they want to. They may choose to incarnate and play the role of a major teacher in one of the themes and then follow up and guide their teachings from the other side. The majority of the beings at this school are from this current universe and are required to incarnate to get a full rounded education in order to graduate and leave the school. There are other schools in the universe that are based in the higher dimensions and much less intense than earth.

Is This All A Dream?

Recently I was asked: “Since everything feels completely realistic while dreaming, why is it dismissed that our existence while awake is an illusion?”

I have often marveled how few people question what this reality is. Of course, the deeper one goes down the consciousness rabbit hole, the more one finds out this too is a type of dream. I have watched many spiritually advanced friends struggle to remember that this life is a dream especially when they are caught up in emotional pain. I have crossed the line so that I pretty much know this reality is a dream most of the time. The dream is clearly seen by me.

I also marvel that people don’t question more why we dream and the necessity for us to get a good night sleep in order to stay healthy and live. Lucid dreams, or the dreams which stand out, are easy to remember. They are vignettes of our higher self carrying-on, on the other side in the higher dimensions. When we sleep as humans we are awake in the higher dimensions and when are awake here, we are in a rest mode there.

The earth school we attend is finishing up the current teaching cycle. This is why things in our civilization seem to be falling apart. People have become polarized in their beliefs and life is intense. Fukushima, Japan continues to dump radiation into the ocean. The plastic around the earth is threatening our ecosystem etc. Climate change is real, thou, it is not man-made…. It is happening because the dream we are living in is about to change to a new dream with the help of a pole shift. Pole shifts and dream changes happen about every 10 thousand years.

The dream before this dream was called Atlantis and the dream before that was called Lemuria. In our current cycle, we have a male dominant perspective. In Lemuria, we had a female dominant perspective. For all kinds of soul growth, it is important for the teaching curriculum of the earth to change every so often. Each time the curriculum changes, great care goes into making the school setting seem as real as possible… as if it has always been this way and things evolve. Evolution is a mere dream. I have recollections of other dream cycles of this earth school. My being has participated in dream changes many times and I have memories of the change.

If we take an honest look at our civilization’s current situation, we know there is no possible way for us to evolve out of this mess. Many who have yet to realize this is a dream are scared to death about what seems to be happening to our world and rightfully so. The scare is helping many to awaken. The new dream will start out with a civilization who is more advanced and more consciously awake. The darker energies who are currently in the old dream will not be allowed into the beginning of the new dream. The new dream will start out as a time of peace and joy.

Soul Evolution

Recently, I was asked the following: “How can I tell if a person is an evolved soul? If there is a hierarchy of soul evolution then how can I know where I am on this scale? This is really important to me.”

My answer: I understand your desire to know who you are and yes, there is sort of a hierarchy or really it’s more like a family tree. The older a soul is, the closest to the trunk of the family tree they will be. The closer to the trunk of the tree a being is, the more one’s being will realize we are all ultimately One soul but came out of the One at different times… perhaps even in different universes. Our being is a paradox because we are all the same in essence and yet we are all different.

So why does it help us to know were in creation we are located on the family tree? It helps us to understand our creation better and who we are as a spirit being within creation. It also might tell us who our group soul is and what we are about and where we came from.  Not all souls have come out of the One at the same time. Knowing this information is similar to people wanting to know about their DNA and roots/genealogy as humans.

One thing to keep in mind, which I have learned, is creation exists within an infinite spectrum of light and there will always be beings whose higher self is either lighter and darker than our own being. So there is no room for the ego in this quest for self-discovery. There is nothing wrong with wanting to know about one’s higher self and if there is a desire to know, it means there is value for you either in the process of getting or having the information. It is our higher self which gives us such desires.

I have found the best way for me to gather up this information was to learn to connect and communicate with my higher self and get the information directly via dreams, intuition or from my own channeling. Outside sources are not always trusted or accurate. If you are destined to know this information, you will be given clues and the information will come.

Losing Friends After Awakening

I was recently asked: If we lose friends during and after a spiritual awakening, and is it because we are not vibrating at the same frequency anymore?

Yes, this can happen and often does happen with any kind of inner growth. The new energy can easily become incompatible with the old energy.  How both sides handle the situation is part of the learning experience of earth school.

Friendships and other relationships don’t necessarily need to end when awakening growth happens, but there can be new awkwardness and perhaps even secret envy coming from others who continue to live in the old energy that we leave behind.

Unless the other person makes it unbearable for us, as multidimensional beings, we should be able to connect and find common ground with others no matter their dimensional level even though our own values and perceptions have changed. This is a lesson for all of us.

There Is Only One

I do not hold any one teaching or group to be “the” truth… for Truth is about Knowing the Whole of Everything.

Third Eye by Sheilan

The non-duality understanding of Oneness has always existed.  The Vedic word for Oneness is Advaita and translated means ‘not two’.  It is derived from the Upanishads, which are thought to be the final commentaries and interpretations of the ancient, Vedic texts.  Vedas means ‘Knowledge’.  Many believe the ancient Vedic scriptures have also existed since the beginning of history. These ancient scriptures were written down by sages over a period of time, between 1500 BCE and 500 BCE.  It is said, that prior to this time, the teaching of Knowledge was given orally from one person to another.

The word Upanishad means “sitting down near”, implying sitting at the feet of the one with Knowledge and is the basis for the relationship between teacher and student and ‘the spoken word’.  ‘The spoken word’ is a way of transmitting and pointing to, that which cannot be spoken.  The ultimate lesson of Advaita Knowledge is beyond the realm of conceptual thought and form.  This non-thing or void that will always remain wordless is True reality and at a certain stage in our perception, it is seen as the only thing that exists as Real. All else seeming to be separately real is but a Dream!  From this ultimate perception, individuals and separation do not exist.  The separate self is an illusion, a lie, the Dream. It is the ego in each of us, which believes itself to be separate, with individual power to create and choose.  The ego is the Dream self and does not realize itself to be a fictional character of the Dreamer.  Self Realization happens when Oneness awakens from the Dream into the knowledge of its True Self.  Waking up from the Dream is not something an individual ego can control or make happen faster or even happen at all, because again, in Truth, there are no individuals with individual power.

Advaita thought is an essential pointer to understanding Reality beyond the words and concepts.  India may be credited to having the oldest and most doctrines, as well as teachers teaching Advaita concepts, Ramana Maharshi being the most famous, but the essence of this understanding is universal and can be found at the root of all myths and religions of the world.  Throughout time, there have been teachers emerging with various degrees of this understanding.  Joseph Campbell, in his 1988 ‘Power of Myth’ series, was able to explain this transcendent understanding to a western audience, on national TV.  It seems that this was the beginning of our western culture, to collectively, go deeper into the knowledge of this Ultimate Understanding, allowing for more acceptance and diversity among us.

We come out of Oneness to explore Self… we awaken and see our separation is a dream… We return back to One…   We are Infinity… we are All that exists.

OH NO! The Sky is falling…

Acceptance is the key to life’s challenges, the “ups and down” of life… Having the sky fall is simply a tool for soul growth and for cosmic evolution to take place!

Oh no the sky is falling! It was only a matter of time people began to realize the depth to which we are self-destructing as a civilization. For many of us the sky fell a long time ago and it was the beginning of our journey seeking for something Real. At some point, the cosmic rug was bound to get pulled out from everyone else and fall-out to be fatal. Because we are at the end of a cosmic cycle we are witnessing extreme duality on every level of life and society. There is no real security in this world and the security we try to hold onto is illusionary. We must be willing to look behind the curtain, like in the movie The Wizard of Oz, to see the Great Oz is an illusion and can’t save us and get us back home to where we want to be.  The true comfort and security we seek can only be found inside our own self.

From my perspective, this life is a dream… kind of like a movie.  It is a fantasy held together by smoke and mirrors.  Most of the players are not aware of the dream and believe the characters and the stage sets are real.   In this country, many are filled with endless ego desires.  They indulge themselves on every level possible. They desperately try to fill up their empty lives with all kinds of stuff, so they can’t see the dream.  This keeps them from asking the essential questions of who am I and what is this life about?  When our lives are filled to the brim with accumulating and consuming and bullying each other, who has time to look deeper and to question what is real?

Sleepwalkers sometimes walk into walls and fall down stairs.  This may wake them up, but it will not keep them from sleepwalking again. It is the same for all of us.  Only awakening one moment is not enough to keep us awake for the rest of our lives.  We need to walk into walls, the sky needs to fall and the rug needs to be pulled out from under us, over and over again, until our egos become small enough for us to even minutely see the Dream.  The more aware and awake we are the more we become grounded in True understanding of what is Real.  Having True understanding that Consciousness is all there is, is like having “The Ruby Slippers” to protect us from The Wicked Witch of ups and downs.

The evolutionary journey out of the One and back to the One is Consciousness Awakening to itself.  Having the sky fall is simply a tool for soul growth and cosmic evolution to happen.  Suffering is never very pretty and can seem very tragic.  My heart goes out to all who are going thru such things.  I have had my share of suffering from cosmic rugs being pulled out from under me in a myriad of ways and as a result, I have awakened to clearly see the Dream.  When I began to accept physical reality to be a Dream, I began to let go of my attachments to it.  Life got easier as I accepted the ups and downs as part of the destined journey of my soul and just part of the script of the movie… the dream.

There is a famous old Taoist story I really like called “We’ll See”.   It is a good example of seeing the dream.

There is an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit.”Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.

“We’ll see,” the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses.

“How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed.

“We’ll see,” replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.

“We’ll see,” answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

“We’ll see,” said the farmer!

And the story continues on and on…

Yes, our world is about changes and it can either be a scary story where we get lost in what is happening or it can be a joyful journey because we know what is Real.  So “Get Real”… slow down, keep it simple, let go and let flow!  Live the ‘now’… from moment to moment and there will be no room for mind/ego to attach itself.  Real change comes from within.  Have patience!

Peace be with you,
Sheilan
