The Great Upheaval

We are living through the time of the Great Upheaval.  Everything in our world that was built on the foundation and for the purpose of fear, power, oppression, and control is in some form of collapse. Governance, education, healthcare, the capitalistic-corporate culture, the industrial model, etc. etc. etc.  Everywhere we look, we see systems on the verge of collapse.

As is true for all experiences of loss, there have been several responses to this collapse:

Denial.   Bargaining.  Depression.  Rage.  Sorrow.  Acceptance.

Denial:  “Everything is fine.  Nothing’s wrong with the current system.  Let’s just continue with things as they always have been.”

Bargaining:  “If people just had the work-ethic of my generation, all would be well. If  younger people would just get off their devices…”

Depression:  “I had to close my business because no one would work.”

Rage: “It’s ‘their’ fault that the world is like this.  Let’s wage a war/protest against ‘them.’”

Sorrow: “I’m deeply sorrowful for the changes I see happening in our world.”

 

Acceptance:  “I see and understand all these external symptoms as signs of impending death and I am hopeful for the new world that will come forth out of these long-needed changes.”

 

The world in which we have been living and the systems that have created this world are not and have never been sustainable.  We have created for ourselves a feudalistic system in which the many are slaving away for the benefit of the few.  Corporations and their shareholders are reaping the benefits of their employees work while hoarding wealth for themselves.  Educational systems are geared toward churning out obedient workers for the system while ignoring the growing needs in our culture for innovation and creativity and the specific educational needs of those primed for the future and not for the past.  Post-secondary education has turned into a capitalistic/money-making corporate scheme. Healthcare flounders because it is no longer geared toward the care of the patient.  Instead, healthcare has become about profits and the wealth of stockholders.

These are just a few examples of how the upheaval is presenting itself in the systems in need of change.

Other examples of this upheaval are evident in those who were born to help bring about the change and who are here to plant the seeds and nurture the growth of the new world.  Let me offer a few examples as I have witnessed them as both a mother and an advocate to the generations who are bringing forth this change:

  • Young adults refusing to work in environments where their needs for respect, a living wage, work/life balance, etc. are not being met.
  • Young adults finding innovative and create ways to make a living (entrepreneurial ship, online businesses, social media, making a living through their creative abilities, etc.)
  • Technology: our young people intuitively know how to work with emerging and the ever-increasing advances in technology. They have harnessed this ability and daily come up with new ways to use technology for the greater good of our world.
  • Global Awareness:  The younger generations think globally and locally, with an eye to how our local actions impact the larger world.
  • Acceptance of Diversity:  The younger generations are far more accepting of diversity and are finding increasing ways to honor and celebrate this.
  • Education:  Children and young adults rebelling against an educational system that doesn’t work for them.  Young adults refusing to invest in a university education because that model no longer guarantees good work with adequate pay, more importantly, the current model of higher ed has not changed to meet the needs of a changing world.
  • Connectivity: Our young people are more connected than we ever thought of being.  Thanks to technology, they are able to communicate with the world, have found their tribes, and are working together to bring forth change.

These are only a few examples, but ones that are likely to spark judgment and condemnation from those benefitting from the status quo. 

This judgement is another face of grief.  If we judge the young ones for their “strange behavior,” then we can condemn them and continue in our comfort with the status quo while ignoring a world on the verge of collapse.”

As is true of any death, it is appropriate to grieve, but we can only remain in denial for so long. Eventually the truth comes to bear. Death is the only outcome of a system beyond repair.  When we open our eyes to the symptoms of that death and look toward the possibility of new life on the other side of this death, we find comfort and hope.  I, for one, am beyond excited for what the youth among us will do to bring forth the new world after the current one is gone.  The good news is that they are already doing.  We must simply open our eyes and release our temptation to judge, then we shall see it clearly.

What are you seeing as signs of a new world coming into form?

Turning a Corner – Whew That Was Rough!

Authentic Freedom Energy report 2/22/21

 

I don’t know about you, but the weeks since January 1 have been a DOOZIE!  I guess none of our prayers for relief in 2021 were answered – or rather, the answer was, “Oh honey, we’re not done with you yet!”

Since January 1, it seems we have experienced one crisis after another in what can only be described as a “nail biter.”  I’m sure our astrologer friends have some insights into how the planets have been involved, but since I’m not an astrologer, I can only speak to what I have been and am continuing to see.

In short – we, as a collective, are moving through what may be described as the greatest transformation in the history of humanity.  Whether we are aware of it or not, we are discarding old, outmoded systems and clearing space for something new to be born.  This discarding, clearing and rebuilding is at once personal and universal, microcosmic and macrocosmic, Einsteinian and Quantum, visible and invisible.  The transformation we are moving through is all-consuming and requires of us everything we have.  If you are feeling exhausted, this would be why.

I know I’ve said this a billion times, but we are clearing away 5000-8000 year old systems of fear, power, oppression and control.  Many of these symptoms are obvious (hierarchy, patriarchy, etc.), many are much more subtle.  The work to clear away these old and unsustainable systems is a full-time job and require, if not our undivided attention, our complete involvement.  That involvement is sometimes obvious, more often subtle and even invisible.  It is certain, however, that we are involved in some way shape or form – whether we are aware of it or not.

On one hand, we have those who are playing the role of comply-ers.  These are the folks who are clinging to what has been.  Some of this clinging is obvious – as in the siege on the Capitol on January 6th. Some is much more subtle – as in the reactions of the older generations to the youth of today – expecting these children and young adults to follow the rules that had been laid out for the children of the 50’s. The comply-ers have benefitted from the old (dying) systems and want those systems to remain, and are doing everything in their power to defend those systems.

The deny-ers are those who are here to envision and/or build the new world.  We are the ones who came here to call out that which no longer serves, to break our own chains of bondage to those systems and clear the space for something new to be brought forth. We are the ones witnessing to the death of the old world and clapping the dust of the old off our hands as we gratefully walk away. We are the shit disturbers, the catalysts, and the grim reapers – cutting out the old to make way for the new.

 

Finally there are the builders.  This group has been mostly silent.  They are lying in wait for their time to come.  Some are stealthily planting the seeds of the new while at the same time, bringing the powers that be to their knees (ie: Gamestop/Reddit).  Others are quietly defying the old systems while standing wholly in their own truth.  These are the ones who have discarded outmoded hierarchical expectations and power-over cultural conditioning.  These are the ones for whom respect and trust has to be earned, and authority is never assumed.  One will never see blind obedience in this group as to them, everything is questioned – and rightly so.  They are wise and intelligent, and they apply sound reasoning and discernment to every experience in their lives.  These are the old souls who have come to build us a new world.

I mention these three groups because we are all here to play our role.  We are comply-er, deny-er or builder and we are all necessary parts of the working design that is carrying us out of the old and into the new.  As every machine requires friction to operate, so too does the grand design that is bringing us into a new world.  Forget about Spaceforce 1, this is New Earth NOW!

The actions, interactions, and friction that are the product of this working design are being felt by all of us.  We are weary, worn out, frustrated, and grieving as we witness the ongoing struggle for the NEW while the old fiercely clings.  The degree to which we are struggling with this transformation is proportionate to the degree of our clinging.  If we have expectations for things to be a certain way and are disappointed to find out they are not, it is our expectations that have gotten in the way.  If we are hurting because we have been given another opportunity to leave something behind to make way for the new, then we are human.  Every human being is part of this grand design and we are all playing our roles – and it is hard.

The past two months have been especially difficult – which is to be expected as we carry our dreams of being free of the past year into the new.  2020 wasn’t over on December 31st!  In fact, we are only now approaching the true energies of 2021.  Can you feel it?  It’s subtle, but it’s there.  It’s like a tiny whispering gentle breeze has blown in – like a warm spring breeze (even as Texas is freezing).  We have successfully made it through seven harrowing weeks of deep inner and outer transformation.  AND WE ARE STILL HERE.  Congratulations!

Now, give yourself permission to take a deep breath.  Leave 2020 behind. Congratulate yourself on a journey well-done.  Comfort yourself for what you have grieved and been made to leave behind. And ready yourself for whatever is next for you in the grand design plan.  It is not something that can be sought after, or even planned.  But you will know it because it will be standing right before you, offering itself to you.  In the meantime, be compassionate toward yourself and even more compassionate toward others.  We are all playing our role in the grand design and unlike the old system that makes winner and losers, in the grand design, everybody wins.

Transformation of the Patriarchal Wound

Oh my dear sisters and brothers,

We are deep in one of the most profound transformations we have likely ever experienced in our collective evolution, most definitely in our collective memories.  The impact of this transformation will ultimately prove to be as species-altering as the time some 8000 years ago when humanity chose fear/power/control and oppression over the harmonious collaboration we once knew.

The unfortunate term that has been given to that 8000 year old choice is patriarchy.  I say unfortunate because today, this term has come to be associated with men in a not-so-good way.  The temptation when using this term is to believe that one is suggesting “men” are bad.  They are not.  But the truth remains – patriarchy means “a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it.”  By definition, those who control and benefit from a patriarchal system are largely male. While there are most certainly women who benefit from patriarchy, they hold no power or influence over the designs of the system.  Their benefit is simply by association.

So please be assured that as I continue with this unfolding, my words are not anti-male.  My words are to point out a system that is dying and the suffering currently being experienced by those who have benefitted from the system; those who do not know what to do when that which has supported their “success” is quickly crumbling beneath them.  They also don’t know how to respond when the very lies that have held up this system are proving to be untrue.

The cold hard truth is that the patriarchy is facing its own death.  As a result, the responses of those who have benefitted from the dying system are typical of anyone experiencing a death or a loss:

  • Denial
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Sorrow

Acceptance will eventually follow these typical faces of grief, but likely not without a fight. Those who have benefitted from the patriarchal system are clinging hard to what they have known and are (sometimes) viciously defending the system that has been their source of support and means of validation.

What happens when we learn that what has been validating us, giving us our sense of self-worth, provided our income and our perception of success, is all a lie?  If you have been deep in the throes of spiritual transformation and the ego death that ensues, you know of what I speak.  Some find their way through the death of “self” to the Truth within.  Many do not.  And we live in a culture where transformational work is not only ignored, it is often dismissed as “witchcraft and sorcery.”

It goes like this – to keep a lie going, there has to be an enemy.  The enemy of patriarchy is self-knowledge and inner growth.  Pride is the compulsion that fuels the patriarchy, leaving those who benefit terrified of the truth of the human condition – our inherent powerlessness.  In order to fully enter inner growth and transformation, we have to become humble and accept the fact that as a species, we cannot do it alone.  We are not the sole proprietor of human agency.  As a species we thrive in community.  When we embrace the patriarchal mantra “every man for himself,” we die.

Patriarchy is built on that lie, as is the economic system of Capitalism.  In a “dog eats dog” world, eventually everyone gets eaten.  All of this is what has brought our world to the brink of its own destruction – a destruction of humanity’s own making.

And yet, those who built and thrive in the patriarchal system continue to deny the consequences of their actions.  They deny culpability pretending the “liberal agenda” is the cause of the world’s destruction.  The destruction of our world is not about conservative or liberals, it is about a system built on fear, power and control which benefits few while enslaving those “beneath” them.  By design it is an unsustainable system that is on the brink of collapse.

To the point of its last dying gasp, the patriarchy will deny these facts.  It will fight to maintain power by every means possible.  It will demonize, threaten, argue against anyone and anything that points out the fact that they are dying or the lies that have allowed them to live. This goes for men and women alike who benefit from a system of fear, power and control who are benefitting at the expense of others.  Probably to their dying breath they will continue to repeat the mantras that have justified their actions:

 

  • I (alone) am the source of my success.
  • I am successful because of MY hard work.
  • There is a magical formula for success and I know it.
  • If people are suffering, it is their fault. It is because they didn’t follow the magical formula, didn’t work hard enough, or didn’t think the right thoughts.
  • I deserve what I have because of how hard I worked.
  • I am a good person because God has blessed me. (because apparently God is busy doling out financial success to those who deserve it and withholding money from those who does not).

 

Pre-patriarchal systems knew otherwise.  They understood the inherent vulnerability of the human animal.  They knew that our survival depended on collaboration – that we would only survive as a species if we learned how to harness the inherent gifts of the individual in collaboration with the whole.  They understood that our survival literally depended on our relationship with the earth – because the earth itself was our means of survival.  Everything we need to survive comes from our earth – food, as well as the materials that close, house and provide protection.  We also knew that like every other species, we were vulnerable to sickness and disease and that the earth (sometimes) provided the medicine we needed to maintain wellness or restore our health.  Perhaps most importantly, they understood the reality and sacredness of death.  Everything has its season, including the human being. And when someone’s time came to and end, the community celebrated the life and mourned the death while remembering the nourishment that person’s presence brought to the community and the nourishment their decaying body would bring to the earth when they were laid to rest.  Before patriarchy destroyed these systems, they thrived in peaceful harmony (at least within the tribe) because they understood that their survival was dependent on mutual honor and support.

Patriarchy has made us forget this truth, and the consequences of this forgetting are obvious (at least to those with eyes to see).  The time of the patriarchy is coming to an end and something new is in the process of being born from within it.  Our task at this time is to be witness to the death throes of the patriarchy and the flailing about of those still clinging to that system while simultaneously holding the vision of the new world that is seeking to be born. One rooted in love, seeking out and supporting the inherent gifts of each and every human being, and harnessing these gifts in collaboration and cooperation with mutual honor and respect that naturally and effortlessly brings forth a world where decisions are made, not for the benefit of the few, but for the good of the all.

Voting and Hoping for a Savior?

Sisters and brothers,

Why all the divisive language?  Why, as we are getting closer to the day of the presidential election, are we continuing the “us vs. them” rhetoric?  Rhetoric which is casting “the other” in the role of villain and our own favored candidate in the role of savior?  Are we voting and hoping for a savior?

If we are looking for Trump or Biden or any of the other presidential candidates to save our nation, we are looking and hoping in the wrong direction.  The salvation we are all looking for WILL NOT come from outside of us.  It can only come from within.

I know, to many that may seem like “whoo whoo talk” or sounds a little religiously familiar; but the truth of the matter is that the mess we have gotten ourselves into as a nation started with ourselves.  In other words, we have no one else to blame, and it is only our own actions that will bring forth any change.

You want to change the world?  Then change yourself!

The ills of our nation began in the desire to have power and control in worlds where we felt powerless.  Whether it was religious persecution or the longing for a better life that brought us here, or if we were dragged here in chains for the purpose of servitude, it was fear that brought us here.  Fear compels us to seek separation (if for no other reason than to paint ourselves as heroes and the other as the villain) and separation is exactly what has defined this nation even before those men signed the Declaration of Independence.

  • Male and female.
  • Black and white.
  • Civilized and barbarous.
  • Rich and poor.
  • Catholic and Protestant.
  • Educated and Ignorant.
  • Gay and Straight.
  • Republican and Democrat.

The list goes on and on and one.  It is separation that has defined our nation and this separation was brought about by our own hand.  As such, if we truly want to save our nation (it’s a good start in the direction of saving the world), then we have to put an end to separation.  But separation doesn’t end because we want it to.  Separation ends when we heal the wound that created separation in the first place.  Which brings me back to my original point:

If we are voting and hoping for a savior, we are looking in the wrong direction.

Saving our nation begins with saving ourselves and that is an inside job.  When we heal what is separate within us, only then are we able to be a vehicle through which the separation that plagues our world can be healed.  It starts with ourselves and it starts within.

The process is woefully simple, but I have found that few have the courage or tenacity to do this great work.  The great work of which I speak is simply this:

Learning how to love.

Learning how to love begins by learning how to love ourselves.  Loving ourselves is the natural consequence of healing all that is separate within us:  our fears, our past traumas and our fear-based conditioning.  Loving ourselves includes learning to love the parts of ourselves we have been conditioned to believe are unlovable – our vulnerabilities and imperfections; and most importantly – our shadow.  Our shadow is the accumulation of what we have rejected/suppressed or repressed inside of us along with all the parts of ourselves that remain unlived.

As we learn to love ourselves, we find that the walls of separation we have build around ourselves and others, begin to fall away.  Suddenly we have empathy for another’s pain.  We have understanding of another’s challenges.  We can see the world through the eyes of those whose experiences have differed from our own.  And we learn compassion. When we learn compassion we discover that there is beauty in diversity and that every single human being has needs that are worthy.

Most importantly, we learn what the ancients knew full-well, a species which is divided will destroy itself.  A species that can come together in cooperation and collaboration in support of the common good will thrive.

The only true savior is that which we can find within ourselves. Isn’t time we stop looking outside of ourselves for a savior and start looking within?

Creating Our New World Now!

My dear sisters and brothers,

As I mentioned in our spiritual service on Friday, there is a great turmoil approaching – one even greater than what we have experienced before.  The death throes of the old world are even more palpable than before which I am currently feeling in every cell of my body in the form of an underlying anxiety that is most definitely NOT my own.  I have nothing to be anxious about in my personal life which means it can only be coming forth from the world at large.

I recently heard myself saying, somewhat jokingly, but not really, that if a certain outcome happens in November that “I am going underground.”  Then two things struck me:

  • No matter the outcome in November, mass chaos will prevail, and from November 3rd until likely mid-January there will be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth. I don’t like to suggest doomsday, but it may be a good idea to be prepared in the event of massive civil unrest and the initiation of martial law.
  • Why am I waiting until November to go underground and what exactly does underground mean to me?

While I have no control over the outcome and the consequences of November, I am in complete control over how I choose to live my life.  Underground has always sounded good to me – who doesn’t want to live in a cave in the woods?  While I’m not currently living in the woods and there are no caves nearby, and it is unlikely that I will be moving location anytime soon; none of this prevents me from creating my own underground in the world in which I am currently living.

Underground begins with a few simple steps:

  • Unplugging from any activity, relationship, endeavor, etc. that are no longer life-giving.
  • Eliminating those things which drain me emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
  • Examining my Soul for those things that nourish, support and enliven me, and then making these a priority.
  • Setting boundaries around my time and my use of time.
  • Saying no to people, activities, etc. which are not life-giving.
  • Being open to TRIBE. Watching for those of similar resonance and connecting with this individuals as a source of mutual honor, respect and support.
  • Have my doomsday team on speed-dial – those I know I can call on (and visa versa) when I hit the wall or am about to have a meltdown.
  • Clearing my field of anything that takes me away from my own well-cultivated field of inner peace and contentment.
  • Be open to how my Soul is being called to serve and doing it.
  • Saying NO to any societal conditioning, expectations, etc. that are not in resonance with my own truth.
  • Living my own truth, unapologetically.

As it turns out, going underground is really my own way of creating the world I want to live in in the midst of the insanity and instability of a dying world.  Building our own world is first an inside job – we have to feel it inside of ourselves first.  Our new world becomes a reality when we begin to choose that which supports the inner contentment, peace and fulfillment we have cultivated within.  We don’t need the world to be finished with its dying before choosing our new world and living in it.  We simply need to choose it each and every moment of each and every day.  If I could give an image to my own new world and what underground looks like to me, it would be something like this:

 

 

What does your new world look like and how can you begin to choose it?

When Evil Comes Out to Play

9/1/20

Good morning sisters and brothers.  After a rough couple days, I awoke this morning feeling somewhat back to my abnormal self.  🙂  The energy for the past few days has been exceedingly disruptive and I found myself caught up in the yuk – not on purpose – I just couldn’t NOT feel the tremor of fear that raged across our planet.  A certain someone is supposed to pay a visit to Kenosha, Wisconsin today and there is much trepidation about the increasing division that his words might ignite.  I am roughly 100 miles from Kenosha, in Oshkosh, WI so the anxiety is palpable.

This anxiety is simply one more symptom in a long line of symptoms of our dying world.  That which has been hiding in the shadows (racism, classism, supremacy cults, the dark web, organized hate groups, violence, hatred, ignorance, etc. etc. etc.) continues to come out to be seen and it is HORRIBLE.  The potential for evil that dwells within humanity is appearing to be infinite.  And for those “of the good,” IT IS EXHAUSTING and disheartening.

In the face of all this evil, it is good to remember, this is nothing new!  This evil and hatred for “the (perceived) other” has always been present.  We simply live at a time that has fed these evils and that has allowed them to thrive – albeit in the darkness. Then a few years back something happened that invited them all to come out and play – and be seen.  On many days, it seems as if a war is waging in the heavens between “the evil” and “the good” and we are the unwitting pawns in this game. I can assure you, such is not the case, but knowing this doesn’t change how it feels.  We are definitely experiencing the depths of the YUK.  The sad thing is that this is a YUK of our own making and has absolutely nothing to do with that which some might call “God.”

This is why I often say, “Human beings suck.  I’m glad I’m not one of them.”  I say this (somewhat) tongue in cheek – but in many ways this is true.  Human beings, while perfect as Divine creations, are also broken and flawed.  Broken by the original wound of separation and then further broken by other wounded human beings.  We are all wounded in some way – some are simply wounded more than others.  What we call “evil” is the consequence of unacknowledged and unhealed brokenness.  This means that the “evil” can be healed.

When I look out over our broken world and ponder the healing of all this evil, I become overwhelmed and shutdown.  It seems an impossible task.  (It is an impossible task) I have learned that the world is not mine to heal.  I used to think it was, but not anymore.  I have come to understand that the only person we can truly heal is OURSELVES.  Part of healing ourselves includes letting go of all the things outside of ourselves we believe we are responsible for healing.  Like the story of the oxygen masks on airplanes.  If the plane is going down, you have to grab your own mask first before helping your neighbor with theirs.

Saving ourselves does not mean we do not have compassion for our dying world.  Neither does it mean we refuse assistance for those seeking help.  We help the world heal itself by first healing ourselves.  As we do this, those close to us begin to heal and transform.  The more authentic and whole we are with ourselves, the more those around us feel safe to do the same.  This healing begins to ripple out from us to the people we meet, the encounters we have in the world and the gifts we share with those who are ready to receive.  Saving the world begins by saving ourselves and keeping the focus on our own healing and wellbeing.  The rest simply unfolds from there.

This doesn’t mean that Lauri Lumby in Oshkosh Wisconsin by her simple acts of kindness will get a white supremacist to lay down his gun, but it might inspire the next generation to look for non-violent ways to resolve perceived conflict, or to work to eradicate the social injustices that inspire hate in the first place.  At the end of the day, all the angry voices are simply people who did not feel seen or heard somewhere along the way or who did not get their basic needs for food, clothing, shelter, safety and love adequately met.  Angry and hateful people are simply very sad people in disguise.

As the world (as we have known it) continues in its death march, growing louder and more angry as it reaches its ultimate demise, we would do well for ourselves to remember a few things:

 

  • Keep our head down!
  • Stay out of the fray!
  • Heal ourself!
  • Care for our own!
  • When tempted to meet hate with hate, remember the deep woundedness that created all this evil and PRAY FOR THEM!

 

When facing times like these, I find myself drawn back to my Catholic roots, especially to the intercession (support) of the saints.  Mother Mary, in particular is one I turn to.  When invoking her support, I pray these words.  Perhaps you will feel inspired to do the same:

 

Hail Mary, Full of Grace.

Love is with you.

Blessed art thou among women

And Blessed is the fruit of your Love.

Holy Mary, Mother of Love.

Pray for us.

Now and at the hour or our death.

Amen.

Surviving the Shit Show!

Last night we had a ZOOM gathering of the Authentic Freedom community and we discussed the coming 6-9 months and what is likely on tap for our world.  You don’t have to be a prophet to see what is up ahead, though those who gathered are prophets in their own right.  You also don’t have to be an astrologer, but astrology is certainly confirming what many of us already intuitively know.  Really, anyone with eyes to see and a splash of logic can see what is happening……and while there is GREAT GOOD getting ready to emerge, things are likely to get a whole lot worse before they get better.

This is what we can prepare for in the coming months (and if it doesn’t come to pass, then we are no worse off for having approached the coming months with caution and lots of support):

  • Just today the President threw out the proposal to delay the November election. Funny (not funny) thing is that we spoke about EXACTLY THIS last night.  While the President doesn’t have the power to act alone in this decision, that hasn’t stopped him in the past…..so be ready for this very real possibility.
  • SHUT DOWNS. I am 100% certain we will be facing another shutdown in the fall/early winter related to Covid 19.  If not a government mandated shutdown we will at least be seeing schools and businesses making difficult decisions for themselves around how to stay safe and keep their staff, etc. safe with a virus raging.  My “spidey senses” tell me that Covid is going to get a lot worse before it gets better and we STILL don’t have the appropriate measures in place for proper prevention and treatment.  Masks certainly help, but try keeping a mask on a 5 year old!
  • More rioting. Civil unrest is not likely to halt.  People are pissed off – and rightly so.  Yes, there are some who are simply rioting for rioting’s sake, but underneath the chaos is hundreds of years of oppression trying to find its way out.  This oppression is not simply about race, it is about gender, sex, poverty, homelessness, lack of adequate resources, etc. etc. etc.  in the so-called “land of freedom,” people are waking up to all the ways in which they are not truly free.  In case you haven’t figured it out yet, we are in the middle of a revolution – one that is sorely needed.
  • Martial Law: This term has been thrown around a lot lately, but not from a place of hype. This term has surfaced from among those I know who are “in the know.”  Those who are former military or closely connected with the military who understand how and under what conditions martial law is ordered.  What does this actually mean in a nation as geographically expansive?  I imagine it will be a bit of a shit show – one hand not really knowing what the other is doing and people making it up as they go along.
  • Economic Collapse I’ve been predicting this for a LONG TIME! The U.S. economy is already a house of cards and the first Covid shut down initiated a market crash, the likes of which this generation has never seen.  But it’s not even close to being over.  Don’t even bother hoarding your cash, because when the bottom truly falls out, even your hoarded cash won’t have any value.


As in every single time I receive a prophetic message that looks bleak, I hope and pray that these visions will not come to pass.  But so far I’m batting a thousand.  So just in case my intuitive sense (reason and logic) are on-point, here is what you can do to prepare yourself and your loved ones so that you can survive the coming months and be made ready for the new world that will begin to show itself sometime early next year.

  • GOOD NEWS AHEAD know that there is good coming out of the current and future disaster. We are truly witnessing the death of an empire so that something new can take its place.  We don’t yet know what that new is, but it will involved new models of everything we have known:  governance, finance, banking, religion, healthcare, education, commerce, etc. etc. etc.  The new promises to be more just, more equitable, more compassionate and more harmonious.  But what is and has been first has to die before the new can begin to come forth.
  • SELF CARE SELF CARE SELF CARE I cannot say this enough! DO EVERYTHING that helps you stay healthy and emotionally well.  And then do it some more.    Exercise.  Healthy food choices.  Fresh air.  Community.  Meditation.  Spiritual Practices.  Spend time in nature.  Creative activities. Massage.  Body work.  Acupuncture. Dance.  Sing.  Netflix and chill!  Do it and do it some more.  YOU are your first priority.
  • Loved ones get priority: Forget the world “out there” and its pressure to conform. DO WHAT IS RIGHT for yourself and your loved ones.  For example, if that means doing virtual learning with your kids this school year, then do it.
  • Reach out to others: For example: Don’t forget the family next door who might not have the freedom to do virtual learning but wants to.  If you are supporting your kids in virtual learning, reach out to a working family and see if their kids need support.  During shutdown, if you know of someone who cannot leave their house for food, but you can, offer to help.  We can do these things safely.
  • Gather Your Doomsday Team gather around you those who you trust to be a source of support. RECIPROCITY is critical at this time.  We all need those we can go to when the bottom falls out and those who we are open to supporting when the same happens for them.  We have been conditioned to give, give, give, but not to receive.  The new world begins with reciprocity, and it starts by insisting on this in our own lives.
  • SUPPORT SUPPORT SUPPORT Support can come in any number of ways!  Online groups, communities, podcasts, etc.  Find those of like mind and hang with them.  Attend their gatherings.  Join their groups.  ACCEPT the support.

In short, YOU ARE NOT ALONE in this and there are a million ways we can support ourselves and each other as we move through this insanity of a world in its own collapse.

 

Toward that end:  If you haven’t already, please consider membership with the Authentic Freedom community.  Learn more HERE  For the remainder of the year, I am making all offerings available for every membership level.  Please allow yourself to accept this support.

Facing the Death of the Global Empire

As an empath, shadow worker, Reiki master practitioner and energy healer, I am often called to stop whatever I am doing and send healing energy/intentions and prayers to someone or something in need.  This morning was one of those times.  I was at the yoga studio intending to do my Monday morning yoga practice when my body became completely immobilized.  I found that my body could only sit with my hands held in Reiki position.

As in the times I am sharing Reiki professionally with those who need it, as I was holding the Reiki position, I began to see images and receive feelings of who/what needed this healing.  I was not surprised to learn that it was the world.  The people of the world are afraid and justifiably so.  The global empire is collapsing, and it is the United States which is at the center (perhaps even the cause and the effect) of its demise.

My purpose here is not to provide a political discourse on the global history of conquest or man’s (gender intentional) competition for power.  It is to speak to those who are afraid because whether they are aware of it or not, the world around them is dying. I’ve been seeing the symptoms of this collapse and have written about it for years.  In a nutshell – that which was established on a model of fear/power/oppression and control is collapsing.  And THANK GOD/DESS.  We are facing the inevitable end of an unsustainable system.  And if the system doesn’t destroy itself, the human race will be facing its own destruction.  So yes, this is a necessary (for our survival) death and many, if not most, are ill-equipped to identify, let alone manage, the inherent human response to death.

For those who are familiar with the grieving process, we are witnessing a collective grief response.  This explains every over-reaction we are witnessing in American culture:

  • Increasing attention to the shadow aspects of our culture (racism, sexism, genderism, nationalism, religionism, etc. etc. etc.)
  • (violent ones especially).
  • The ongoing argument over mask or no mask.
  • Real news vs. fake news vs. conspiracy theories.
  • And just the simple increasing division among human beings. When everyone seems to be taking sides, you can bet we are facing the death of something.

All of these proportionate and disproportionate (especially the disproportionate) reactions are quite simply a collective response to death.  If there is one thing that death does to us is trigger our need to have control; and if there is one thing we know about death – WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL.

We are not in control of the death of the global empire.  We cannot stop it.  We cannot hasten it along.  We cannot prevent it or assuage it.  There is absolutely nothing we can do but stand back and watch it happen. For most humans, this is easier said than done, if not downright impossible.  Unless we have sought this knowledge on our own, we have not learned how to deal with grief, let alone the death of an entire global system.  Neither have we been trained in how to let go – unless we have been one of the (un)fortunate ones who have had control ripped from our cold, dead, fingers.

So what do human beings do who don’t know how to let go – they seek to manipulate and control.  Hence the increasing chaos we see in our nation and therefore in the world. Human beings do not know how to die.

But there are ways that we can help each other in this dying.

  • We can begin to speak about the death of the global empire.
  • We can begin to acknowledge any fears or anxiety we might have around this death.
  • We can begin to transform those fears through meditation, mindfulness, depth and shadow work, healing practices and just the plain act of talking about it with each other.
  • We can acknowledge the faces of grief and become attentive to what face of that grief we are currently experiencing: shock, denial, bargaining, depression, anger, sorrow, acceptance.
  • In identifying the face of grief, then we can begin to work with that face of grief, bringing ourselves into the acknowledgement of our own sorrow over the dying and weep for what has been and will be lost.
  • We can try to hold our brothers and sisters in compassion, refraining from judgment in recognition of the grief they are perhaps not even aware they are facing.
  • We can hold each other in love.
  • While burying the dying system, we can pray for humanity’s healing.
  • We can look forward in hope for the new world that is already making itself known and which will fully emerge after the old world is put to rest.

Let it Burn!

Let it Burn!

Copyright Lauri Ann Lumby

Make no Mistake!

The world is burning itself to the ground.

The “fall of Rome” on a global scale.

The end of what was born of fear, power and control

on the backs of the poor

benefiting the powerful few.

 

An unsustainable model –

We have created our own demise.

Let it burn.

We cannot save it, nor should we try.

 

But we can grieve.

We can grieve the loss of the life we have known.

We can mourn over the certain carnage that will accompany this dying.

We can weep for the lives and innocence (ignorance) lost.

As we witness the revelation of

Every

Single

Evil

Humanity

Has

Heaped

Upon

Itself.

 

The truth is being laid bare for all to see.

We may try to deny it, (denial is a face of grief)

But it will continue to knock on the doors of our hearts

Until we are able to listen

And see

And feel sorrow

For those whose loss

has been another’s gain.

 

Will we be able to live with ourselves

After all the truths have come to light?

Will we be able to look our brother and sister in the eye?

Will we allow ourselves to feel the shame for

Every

Way

We

Have

Benefited

From

The

Denigration

Of

Others?

 

This is our moment of reckoning.

And we will decide if humanity survives to create a new world

Or

If

We

Will

Die.

 

The choice is simple

and the fate of humanity depends on this choice.

Continuing to choose separation guarantees our death.

Choosing Oneness will bring forth a whole new world.

 

What will you choose?
