Authentic Freedom Weekly Lesson Excerpt

Below is an excerpt from this week’s Authentic Freedom Lesson, available to online subscribers.  To learn more an subscribe, click HERE. 

 

Today I am weary.  As many who will read this can relate, I have never really felt at home in this world.  I have never understood human beings in their tendencies toward selfishness, cruelty and injustice.  The violence in our world confounds me.  I just don’t understand why human beings make the human experience so dang hard.  It is absolutely ridiculous to me that we have poverty, hunger, homelessness, and war, and that the needs of so many in our world go unmet….

In my mind (and in my heart), the human experience should be simple.  We work together to make sure the needs of the all are met.  Period.  We care for those who cannot care for themselves.  We reach out a hand in support to those who are struggling.  We teach a man to fish.  We care for our world.  We cherish and protect our natural places.  We find a way to live in the world without destroying it.  We recycle and reuse.  We educate our populace and empower them to discover and use their gifts for their own fulfillment and in service to the world.  We provide each other with the means to be well.  We us sustainable methods of farming and we don’t pollute our crops. If/when we become sick, we care for each other and provide the resources for people to get that care.  When we have conflict, we sit down and talk it out.  We honor people for their unique gifts, and we celebrate our differences.

This all seems so simple to me, and yet human beings continue to operate outside of these (I guess I could call them) ideals.  But it doesn’t have to be this way and every prophet who ever existed has known this and have tried to get it into the thick fat skulls of humanity that there is another way….

Mercy for the Dying World

The world as we have known it is dying.  After 5000+ years of patriarchal reign, the world built on fear, power and control is imploding upon itself.   The symptoms of this death are everywhere to be seen by those who have eyes to see – increasing prejudice, hatred and divisiveness, a rapidly growing gap between those who have and those who have not, increasing violence, rampant corruption, greed, gluttony, over consumption and the most obvious of all symptoms – the revelation of deceit.  The veil has been torn away and we are able to see clearly all the lies we’ve been told and the deceptions that have been played – all for the sake of power and control. Playing out on a global scale, the world as we have known it is dying and the death the symptoms of this death are evident in every single hierarchical institution created by man – religion, government, corporations, banking, healthcare, and education.

While the dying out of the old system is global, it is playing out in our own little worlds as well. In the tiny little town of Oshkosh, Wisconsin where I reside, for example, the death of the current educational system is happening in real time. Underfunded and over-challenged, our tiny little community is trying to figure out how to get blood from a turnip and (as always) it will be the vulnerable among us who will suffer.  Those with means will always find a way to coerce an outcome favorable to them and have the available resources for navigating change.  The same is not true for the poor or for the otherwise vulnerable (powerless) in our community.  As a social justice advocate, I find myself in the throes of “the battle” while simultaneously understanding that what we are experiencing in Oshkosh is simply a microcosm of the macrocosm and another symptom of a dying world.  We can do our best to support the needs of the vulnerable (ie: protect our children and the teachers who are trying to serve them), but we cannot prevent the system’s inevitable death.

Yes.  Death is inevitable.  By its design, the systems of fear, power and control that rule our world are unsustainable and after 5000 years, we have reached that point of critical mass.  It is time for the house of cards to fall – and falling it is.  If you want to see the fall playing out in real time, just watch a few minutes of the impeachment hearings (rolling my eyeballs out of my head!). Our dying systems cannot be saved.  As is true of all life forms, there comes a point where death is not only inevitable, it becomes an act of mercy.

In the face of these deaths, mercy is our calling.  We can be witness to the dying world, but we cannot save it.  Any attempts to do so would only prolong the suffering. We can be hospice for the dying – offering comfort, counsel, a listening ear and a compassionate heart as the dying struggle through their fears and their attachment to what has been.  We can also be hope for the dying – offering a vision of a new world that is not yet known. We can be promise for the dying – assuring them that in every death is the promise of new life.  Our final act of mercy will be sitting vigil with the dying institutions while those who are here to build the new world are finally free to complete the task they came here to perform, no longer hindered by the weight of a dying world.

Separation of the Worlds

Good morning sisters and brothers, today is a BIG NEWS day!

After several experiences/events that all came together I believe we are at the “separation of the worlds” that has been heralded for years by the “ascension community.” I may be writing more about this in depth soon, but for now, this is what we need to know:

(This is shared from the membership section of this site.  To learn more and join, click HERE. )

1) The old world is dying and beyond repair. We have come forward with the offering of our gifts and they have been repeatedly refused. We cannot help or save the dying world. This much has become clear. We need to let it die…..even if that means standing back and watching it burn. (sad face)

2) This is heartbreaking and sad, so we must grieve. It is appropriate in the face of a dying world to grieve its death and to grieve all we have offered to help save it, which it refused. It is appropriate to grieve.

3) A time of retreat is also appropriate. We need time away from the dying world to create the space out of which the new world may come forth.

4) We need each other. We need to be support for each other as we grieve and as we support ourselves in making room for the new world that is coming forth out of us. We need each other as a check in, as a source of strength, encouragement and support. We will NOT get that support from the dying world, but only from those who are here to bring forth the new.

5) The temptation to get drawn back into the dying world WILL BE STRONG. We must do all we can to resist that temptation, remembering we are not here to save a dying world. WHEN we get drawn back in (the louder the dying world becomes the more we will be tempted), we will be reminded that that world is no longer our own and we will know it by how exhausted we will become when we allow ourselves to get drawn in.

6) Self-care is of utmost importance. In fact, it is the most important thing for us to do at this time. If we are to be the energy that holds the world in its death whole birthing the new, we need to be well cared for ourselves. Rest. Retreat. Self-nurturing. AND being in the company of like-minded people.

7) We cannot do this alone. I am beginning to suspect that it is for this very purpose that I was called to create this membership platform. To create a space where we can connect to gain strength and encouragement for what is coming – is already here.

8) Hope. The eternal promise is that death makes way for new life. This is the law of the universe. The even deeper law is that everything that has been came forth out of nothing – the great eternal void. Such will be the case of the new world. We cannot see it. (though glimpses of it are all around us). We might not even be able to dream it. But, we can feel it. It is in our DNA and in every cell of our being. The new world is who we are and why we are here. And there is nothing we need to “Do” to make it happen. It is happening through us. All we need to do is create space for the Being that is required for the emergence of that world.

9) Call. This is why we are here. To be witness to the separation of the world – the world that is dying and the world that is seeking to be born, and the birth of the new world begins with the worlds that we create for ourselves.

Love,
Lauri

It’s Time to Awaken Out of Our Collective Paralysis

From the day that Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, my business took a HUGE hit.  Seemingly overnight, my business went from somewhat sustainable to me having to get a part-time “real” job.  When it would seem as if the opposite should be true – that people would be clamoring to my door in search of support, they have not.  Instead, it seems that those who were looking forward to more of the same in Hilary or Bernie retreated into their respective hidey-holes.  In shock and afraid, instead of coming forward in support of their desire for a new world, they beat a loud retreat.  Screaming from their half-opened door all they hate about Donald Trump and the “conservative regime,” while doing little to bring forth the new world they say they want.

Admittedly, I was initially one of those people.  But after giving myself over to the shock, I went deep within myself for an answer to my quandary – “How and why did this happen?”   The answer came quickly and clearly, and for this I must offer a heart-felt thank you to all those who supported the Republican platform by voting for Trump.  In clear and concise terms, I was told that Donald Trump was elected so that he could fulfill his mission as “Angel of Death” (Cue Prince of Egypt).  Again, I offer a heart-felt thank you for those who have supported Donald Trump because since the moment he took office the veil has been parted, revealing one shadow after another after another of the dying world.  From political corruption to child sex trafficking, to #MeToo, to corporate corruption, to inequalities in taxation, to the system that supports the rich getting richer on the backs of the poor, to corporate enslavement to the racism, sexism, nationalism, prejudice, and pride that seems to run our nation and its capitalistic agenda.

While I personally find Donald Trump to be a despicable human being, I can see beyond the person, the shock and the trauma into the higher purpose of his presidency.  If ever given a chance, I would personally thank him for what he has done to show us the shadow of Western culture.  In short – WE SUCK!  In our relentless pursuit of wealth, power and fame, we are destroying our world.  I could go on and on and one about all the ways this has shown itself to be true, but if you’ve read this far, you know how this has shown itself and this is NOT the point of my post.

The point is that Donald Trump has accomplished his mission.

NOW IT IS TIME FOR US TO AWAKEN OUT OF OUR COLLECTIVE PARALYSIS

…and get to work building the new world!

But first some words of comfort:

Building a new world does not mean anarchy;

Neither does it require revolution – not of a violent kind anyway.

I will add, however, that the extent to which we are uncomfortable or afraid of the new world is proportional to how much we are clinging to what we know and to what we have believed would sustain us.  This is true for conservatives, progressives, and liberals alike.  What is true in the natural world is true for us – In order to bring forth the new, something must to die – and that death is likely to be something we have made familiar and in which we have placed our beliefs (like the caterpillar before died to become the butterfly). Grief is assured as we let go of the old to make way for the new, and I (and many others like me) am here to help support you as you let go of that which no longer serves to help make way for the new.

But back to the original message.  If we say we want change in our world.  If we believe it is time for the old to pass away to make way for the new.  Then it is time for us to WAKE UP out of our paralysis and get to work.  But, here’s the deal:

 

Building the new world has NOTHING to do with what is “out there.”

and

Building the new world is 100% an inside job! 

 

We cannot bring forth the new world that we yearn for in our collective souls without first anchoring that world within ourselves – and that is no easy task.  It requires that we, like our nation/world, pull back the veil of all that we have hidden from ourselves:

  • Our fears.
  • Our wounds.
  • Our past traumas.
  • Our privilege.
  • The true source of our comfort.
  • And everything within and outside of us that separates us from others (conditioning).

 

Then we have to FEEL the reality of this separation.  We must feel and face our fears, our wounds, and our traumas and bring them into the cauldron of transformation that resides within us.  We must be willing to be freed of these fears, etc. and the “benefits” we get from remaining in that fear.  Then we are required to identify all the ways in which we benefit from a culture of separation and “let that shit go.” All of this is easier said than done which is why in the past, very few have been up to that task.  But, if we are serious about wanting a new world and wanting to be part of bringing that forth, unless we do this deep, inner work, WE WILL FAIL.  Period.

But this time we do not need to fail.  We have the tools, the resources and access to the ancient teachings which support us in healing from the wound of separation so that we can once again live in the world as it was meant to be:

Who is with me?

It’s Loathsome and Hideous, Yet I Can’t Look Away

It’s Loathsome and Hideous, Yet I Can’t Look Away

These immortal words from the TV series Seinfeld, perfectly sum up the times we are in and the greatest temptation for those of us who are here to build the new world.

We live in a time when everything around us seems to be in conflict.  Everything we thought we knew about our world and the perceived security it claimed to provide is falling around us.  In the U.S. we have become a nation divided within a world divided….and we seem to somehow be the cause of that global division.  The world around us no longer makes sense – if it ever did, and the people around us have most definitely stopped making sense.  (cue David Byrne)

We are living in one of the most magnificent times in the history of human beings – both from the perspective of devastation and from the place of promise.  The shadows have all come out to play.  That which we have ignored, denied, shoved under the rug – have all made themselves loudly known.  Racism.  Sexism.  Classism. Privilege.  Nationalism.  The sins of unbridled Capitalism. The sexual crimes of men in power. The sins of the power elite (who is really the cause of global and domestic terrorism?????  Hmmmmm???)  The nature of the beast is as hideous as it is captivating.  As veil upon veil upon veil gets torn away and the views become increasingly disturbing, one is tempted to want to go into battle, or simply collapse in despair.  To some, there is no hope as the truths of our world prove to be increasingly horrific.  The world “out there” has become like a runaway train or a 40-car pileup – it is terrifying to behold, and yet we cannot look away.

The greatest temptation as we view the world hurling itself toward its own destruction is to rush in to try to save it.  But we cannot.  Neither should we try.  The world built on fear, power and control is imploding upon itself and THANK GODDESS!  It is long past time for the world of fear, power and control ruled by rich white men to come to its natural end.  Unbridled pride, gluttony, greed, vengeance, jealousy (competition), hatred and ignorance are and have proven themselves to be unsustainable to anyone other than those who are holding the gold.  What the gold-bearers have not yet realized, however, is that in destroying the world they will inevitably be destroying themselves.  (But maybe, they are that selfish and that short-sighted.)

The truth that is coming to bear is that an unsustainable system will eventually collapse upon itself.  This is EXACTLY what we are currently witnessing in our world, and there is nothing we can do to stop it.  Its life has come to its natural end, making room for a new world to be born out of the ash. For that new world to be born, we need to STOP engaging with the old and dying world.  We need to allow the shriveled, whimpering Voldemort to die his own peaceful death.

In other words, “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”  As the dying world continues to vie for our attention, we are distracted from the purpose we came here to fulfill.  We are not here to save the dying world.  We are here to build something new.  That something new is happening right here in our very midst (look at what the young people are doing) and we are each here to play our own role in the creation of something new.  When we engage in or with the dying world, try to make sense of what is happening “out there” or try to convince others of our cause, we are distracted from the task we came here to complete.  We cannot build our new world when drawn in by the moans of the dying world, neither can we care for ourselves when administering aid to that which cannot be saved.  As harsh as this may sound, it is our job to let it die, and if that means covering our ears to the death wails and covering our eyes to the death and devastation, then so be it.  (This does not mean we cease from doing our part to care for the casualties of a world at war with itself.  It is still our job to advocate for the voiceless and to support the needs of the choiceless.  Let love be your guide.) Like a spoiled rotten child, the dying world will do everything in its power to keep us in their drama.  Just say no.

Discipline.  Persistence.  Tenacity. Let these words be our mantra as we do everything in our power to keep ourselves free of the magnetic drama of the world destroying itself so that we can tend to what we are really here for – to build a WHOLE (rooted in union, harmony, peace, collaboration, compassion and love) new world.

This program supports you in coming to know your own unique giftedness, your Soul’s purpose and teaches you how to identify and transcend the fears that might otherwise prevent you from fulfilling that purpose.  Learn more HERE.

The New World Beckons

The New World Beckons

The new world beckons

Inviting us to listen.

To hear the subtle depth of our Soul calling us home.

Home to ourselves.

 

Piercing through the cacophony of the dying world,

Drawing aside the veil of our fear-based conditioning.

All the ways “the world” distracts us from ourselves:

Temptations of fame, power, control, status and wealth.

Shiny objects begging for attention

pushing us toward the capitalistic lie:

“Hard work = Success”

(as it is measured by how much money we have, the clothes we wear

And whether or not we have our own “reality” show.)

 

Reality my ass!

It’s lies.  All lies.

That which we seek,

which compels the actions of every human being

cannot be found outside of ourselves

but can only be found within

in all the darkened places where our truth resides:

Beneath and behind our conditioning.

Within our fears.

Beyond the uncountable times our heart has been broken

By a “world” that rejects who we are…

A “world” that demands obedience, compliance, subservience…

And silence.

 

The New World beckons.

Our original world beckons.

Calling us out of the hell in which we’ve been living –

To the “heaven” that has been here all along –

for those with eyes to see, ears to hear,

and the courage to set their Soul free

To be who and how it was always meant to be.

Free.

Changing the Vibration of Our World

Twilight visitations:  Yesterday morning while in meditation, I was visited upon by a Presence.  It appeared first as a flash of light, then as a star, hanging just outside my window.  The “star” was filled with the Presence(s) of Knowing and Truth.  Then the star began to speak – not in the language of words, but in the language of knowing.  Delivering to me what I need to know in this moment – a message I am now being asked to share with the world.

We are here to change the soul and vibration of our world.

I already knew this on some level, and I’m certain you do too.  But in this most recent transmission, the fact became even more clear – along with the method.

The method is not about doing.  Doing is the work of a dualistic world.  Instead, the method is in our BEING.  It is by our very presence that the energy of our world is being transmuted from fear into love; separation into union.  Simply in being ourselves, the vibration of our world is changing; but even more so when we add intention to our being.

As a “transmitter,” this is my mission and purpose on this plane – to simply BE and Transmit the new vibrations that are needed so desperately in our world.

The same is true for you, in your own unique soul gift, mission and purpose on this plane.

We did not come here to be human.  We’ve seen what human beings have done to their world.  We are here to be love and in being that love, changing the very fabric of the world, along with what it truly means to be human.  While it may not seem so at times, the world is changing simply because of our presence because this is what we came here to do (oops….BE).

After We Destroy Ourselves – Reflections on a Dying World

After We Destroy Ourselves

Copyright Lauri Ann Lumby

Today I’m hearing (and feeling) the cries of the world.

Too much death.

Too much violence.

Too much destruction –

and not enough people who care.

Humanity looking away as another father buries his son –

Turning a deaf ear to the plaintive wails of the mother

who lost her child to the darkness of this world.

The world is burning and no one cares.

Except those who will profit from the flames –

White men wreaking havoc in a world where they don’t belong.

A world poisoned by greed,

Made toxic by lust – and not just of the sexual kind.

Man’s unbridled quest for power and ownership

of a world that belongs to no one –

Least of all them.

While humanity cries, Mother Earth is silent –

She has taken matters into her own hands.

“If these humans can’t care for me as I have cared for them….

Then they’ve got to go.

Goodbye stupid humans.

This experiment has failed.”

I wouldn’t blame Her if She shifted her poles and simply shook us free.

Starting over after the damage man has done has healed.

Earth always wins.

Humanity is an ignorant, selfish, self-centered species.

After 200,000 years, you would think we would learn.

But the rules of evolution are clear:

Figure it out or die.

The times we are in feel like the end of the human race.

After Mother Earth casts us off

or we do it to ourselves,

will another species rise to take our place?

If history is correct, I believe this will be so.

Perhaps we are already here.

 

If you are one who believes they will remain after the world has destroyed itself, or who believes they embody the seeds of the new species, consider joining our growing community.  Love Warriors.  Dragon Riders of the Apocalypse.  The New Humans…..whatever name you want to give yourself.  You are not alone!
