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?

Made for Times Such as These

This morning I am grateful for the inner guidance that commanded me to take this week as a “week of silence.”  During this week I have and continue to be in a deep dive – working with and through the darkness of our world.  Between Covid-19, mass hysteria and the Dow Jones collapse, I’ve been busy.  While working in the depths and observing the chaos that has been stirred I feel strangely calm, even strengthened and vilified in the face of the world’s response to fear.

I was made for times such as these.

In fact, I’ve spent my whole life preparing and training for a world in utter chaos as it stares its own death in the face.  As I was told in a childhood dream, the world (as we have known it) is dying. Efforts to “save” it have failed. (THANK GOD! Should we really try to save a world that was built on fear, power and control????)  Now we are facing the inevitable and necessary death of that which needs to die.  It is long past the time for that which was built on the unsustainable foundation of fear, power and control to end and for something new to take its place.  This fact, however, does not preclude the mass hysteria and fear that is rising as humanity clings to what they have known which is now (in some cases literally) being torn from their cold, dead fingers.

We are in the death throes of our world…

And there is nothing we can do but sit back and watch. For those of us who have known this was coming, there is a strange mix of vindication (I told you this was coming) and profound sorrow.  It is a terrible thing to watch the world die.  It is even more painful to watch normally reasonable people lose their shit – especially when we know there is another way.

The “other way” is to do what myself and hundreds (if not thousands) like me have done.  We have been open to the unique tools which would support us in freeing ourselves from the fears, wounds and societal conditioning that has prevented us from living (what I call) Authentic Freedom.

Authentic Freedom is a deep inner sense of peace and contentment that is independent of the external circumstances of our lives, and in this case, our world.

We have become masters in this work and many (like myself) have shared our tools with those who similarly want this kind of freedom.  It is in cultivating this inner sense of peace and contentment that we are able to stare DEATH in the face and not panic under His gaze.  It is also this inner freedom that allows us to maintain a deep sense of calm as the world around us is losing its shit.

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!

Surviving the End Times

Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
No, I tell you, but...

Surviving the End Times

When I was seven years old, I had a dream that the world was ending.  I asked in the dream how we could prevent this from happening.  I was told to gather my friends, go in search of “Lincoln’s authentic bones” and “restore them to their rightful place.”  Even at the age of seven I understood the symbolic meaning of this dream and have been preparing ever since.  Well, it seems that the end times are now here.  Not the apocalyptic destruction of the world as some have interpreted the prophet’s words.  Instead, it is the end of the world as we have known it – a world built on fear, power and control, ruled by a rich and powerful few.

I am certain the end times are upon us as I gaze out into the increasing polarization and insanity of our world.  I know it more intimately by the SOS calls I am getting from family, friends, clients and students of their own world seemingly falling apart.  I also see it in the many conversations with my Magdalene sisters and brothers of the chaos they are witnessing in the lives of people they love and care for.  As the patriarchy (the system built on fear, power and control) approaches its final days, the death throes will only become louder.  As those currently in power, those who benefit from their power, and those who have been indoctrinated by their power cling to survival, chaos will rise.

It is not for us to become distracted by this chaos, however, or get drawn into it.  Instead, we are invited to tend to ourselves so that we might not only survive the end times, but thrive upon the ashes of what will remain after the patriarchy has burned itself to the ground. Now more than ever we must tend to ourselves, because:

We are not here to save the dying world.  We are here to witness its destruction while supporting ourselves in building something new.

Self Care.  Self Care.  Self Care.

Surviving the end times while supporting ourselves in building something new starts and ends with SELF CARE.  This is the greatest irony in a world ruled by those who care for no one but themselves, while conditioning us to think of everyone but ourselves.  (what!?)   Yep…you heard that right.  To survive the dying world, we have to turn the tables on our conditioning.  Instead of “me last,” we have to start thinking “ME FIRST.”  In order to do this we have to look deep within ourselves for the answer to this question:

WHAT DO I NEED?

Seems simple right?  Not so much.  What we actually need to feel peaceful, whole, content, joyful and fulfilled has been buried under a lifetime of conditioning.  Who you truly are and what you truly need is buried under a mountain of “shoulds” and “should nots.”  Just pause for a moment and think of all the “shoulds” that currently govern your life.  Some may be obvious, others more subtle.  Here’s a simple one:  “You should pay your bills on time.”  Says who?  And Why?  Who is harmed if you pay your bill a day late, or two weeks late?  As long as it gets paid, who cares?  Speaking of paying your bills…another should:  “You should pay off all your debts. Only bad and irresponsible people file bankruptcy.”  Again….says who?  In a world where money is literally based in debt and where banks are getting rich on the backs of the poor and where the system is set up to keep us imprisoned by debt…then what is wrong with saying “NO” to the system that imprisons us?  Speaking of imprisonment – here’s a more subtle one – “You should be nice to others.”  Again, why?  If “being nice” is an obstacle to us getting our needs met, setting boundaries in our life, or keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, then we can most certainly dispense with “being nice.”

Ultimately, surviving the end times is about extracting ourselves from that which has imprisoned us – those things set forth by the ruling (and dying) culture which have kept us from truly being free.  Free people know their truth, live from that truth and refuse to be hindered by a culture or a system that would prevent them from being that truth. 

First Aid for the End Times

  • If we want to survive the end times, there are a few critical things that support our self-care:
  • DO NOT get drawn into or distracted by the chaos of the dying world.  LET IT DIE.
  • Refrain from trying to fix or save a world that cannot be saved!
  • Tend to your triggers.  WHEN the death rattle of the dying world triggers your fears, anxieties or unhealed wounds – TEND to those wounds.
  • BE 100% accountable for your own shit!  Anxious?  Afraid?  Insecure?  Threatened?  Worried?  Obsessed?  NAME IT.  CLAIM IT.  Do something about it!
  • CHECK YOURSELF!  Don’t take your wounds out on others or try to make them someone else’s responsibility.  HEAL YOURSELF.

If you need help with any of the above, that is my area of expertise!  Get instruction and support through my online courses, one-on-one mentoring, read my book Authentic Freedom, subscribe to my Authentic Freedom Weekly lesson, become part of our social network, join our Teacher’s Circle.  I am here for the sole/soul purpose of supporting you in unraveling from the dying world while creating the world in which you truly want to live.

 

Bonus Material for Empaths

If you are an empath, what I said above about self-care is of infinite importance.  As empaths, we are not only experiencing our own emotions related to the simultaneously dying and birthing worlds, we are feeling the emotions of everyone else.  With this, self-care becomes even more critical.  Self-care that is radical in the face of our action-oriented culture.  As empaths we MUST:

  • Carve out time for the energies we are feeling to be transmuted and released.  (this is the job we are doing for the sake of our world….and no, we don’t get “paid” (not in any material way anyway) to do this work).
  • Honor whatever is happening in our bodies and emotions. NO JUDGMENT.
  • Remember that what we are feeling may not be our own.
  • Don’t react or try to “fix” how we are feeling.  BE WITH IT and it will move.  What we resist will persist.
  • REST!  REST!  REST!  NAP!  NAP!  NAP!  Our bodies are processing deep and powerful energies and it is taxing to our fragile human systems.  Give yourself a break for Goddess’ sake!
  • Nurture yourself.  Take time to do what you love.  Read.  Relax.  Create. Spend time in nature.  Spend time in nature!  (I need this reminder! )
  • If you don’t have one already, cultivate a regular spiritual practice.
  • Surround yourself with loving and caring people.  Dump the energy suckers!  You have enough work to do without being a host for parasites too!
  • Without being a fanatic – eat well.  Your body will tell you what you need.  No need to embrace any radical (more shoulds) diet.  Just eat what feels right to your body.  Also, be gentle on any body-shaming you might be tempted to engage in.  Sometimes we need a little extra weight to nourish the world that is trying to be born through us.
  • Professor Lupin was right – a small piece of chocolate does wonders in restoring our bodies from the ravages of Dementors!
  • Reach out for support when you need it!  Not if you need it.  WHEN you need it.
  • Remember you are not in this alone.

How to Create the World You Want to Live in

As the world around us is imploding upon itself, there is a great temptation for us to want to fix/save/change that world.  The truth is, we cannot change the world “out there” until we build a new world “in here.”  As my friend Lauren Gorgo often says, “It’s an inside job.”  Below are the steps that you can take to create a new world for yourself – one that is of your own making and which will sustain itself no matter what happens “out there.”  Let’s get started, shall we?

 

  1. Turn your gaze AWAY from the dying world. (Stop trying to fix what you don’t like “out there” – you can’t fix it anyway.)
  2. Turn your gaze inward.
  3. If you don’t already have one, establish a meditation/mindfulness or contemplation practice – something that supports you in connecting to the Oneness within.
  4. Identify the separation within you (fears, false perceptions, unhealed wounds, past traumas).
  5. Find tools for healing the separation within you (hint, at Authentic Freedom, this is one of our areas of expertise).
  6. Apply those tools over, over and over again.
  7. Learn to identify when your fears and wounds are triggered.
  8. Return to steps 5 and 6 again, again, and again.
  9. Find out who YOU are. What are your gifts and passions? What is your temperament?  What is your personality type?
  10. Explore how your temperament and personality type help or hinder your desire for peace.
  11. More of step 5 and 6.
  12. Explore what is life-giving for you and what is soul sucking (activities, places, relationships, etc.)
  13. CHOOSE what is life-giving. Discard what is not.
  14. Go back to steps 5-6….but this time, as it relates to societal conditioning.
  15. Repeat steps 1-14 over and over and over again until you are living in the world you have made for yourself.

Now the most important step:

16. Unlike the world that is dying which measures its success by externals, the world that you are creating for yourself is measured by how it makes you feel within. If you have diligently and persistently applied the steps above, the world that you created for yourself should feel more loving, compassionate, contented, peaceful, gentle, kind, joyful; and filled with wonder and awe.

I call her Joy

A Dying World and Dreams of the Apocalypse

Last night I had ANOTHER apocalyptic dream. I’ve had several (many).  In every dream there is a similar theme – the world around me is collapsing and myself and either a group of friends or my children are trying to save the world.  These dreams always end the same – me waking up completely exhausted and hungover from the frustration over not being able to complete the dream.  I am never able to do what I had set out to do – save the world.

Today it hit me!

 

 

The world in which we have been living – the one based in fear, power and control is in the midst of its own demise (cue Oingo Boingo!). It is imploding upon itself and everyday new revelations come forth demonstrating this reality.  This is the world that has only served the very few and which has been built on the backs of those who have become their indentured servants.  As the very few have grown in power, and their servants have become disempowered, the corruption, lies and betrayals upon which the dying world has been built are coming forth – actually, flooding forth.

Here’s an example of one that I am certain served as the inspiration of my latest dream:

A person shared on FB about the recent changes in the health insurance plan. Their deductible has increased exponentially.  Mind you, this person works for one of the riches corporations in the world.  I did a little research and discovered their top execs make upwards of $10Mil a year and have full benefits at no cost to themselves.  It is only “the worker bees” who have to pay for their health insurance.  HMMMMMMM……something is rotten in Denmark.  I made this point on FB and you should have seen the people running to the defense of their employer!  Ok…whatever.  I got my own undies in a twist over this and henceforth came the dream.

But….here is the thing. THAT world is dying.  People are waking up.  They are asking questions.  They are seeing the truth.  And if the “worker bees” aren’t asking the questions, the very few keep putting their foot in their own mouths, revealing exactly HOW they have become so privileged.  “The worker bees” will only put up with this for so long.  In a hive, when the queen stops taking care of her workers, the workers hastily find themselves a new queen.

 

It is long past time for a new queen! And the queen is rising. In a hive, the “seed queens” are already there.  The nurse bees simply locate the most viable larvae and start feeding them royal jelly.  Henceforth the new queen is born.  The same thing is happening in our own world.  The queens are being made ready to take their place as leaders of the new world.  These are the women and men who carry a vision of love instead of a vision of fear. These are the people who desire a world where the needs of the many are favored over the needs of the few and who understand that if we don’t start taking care of this planet we live on, it will destroy us so as to save itself.

These new queens are not only grown-ups. They are the children who came here expecting a world that is one, only to discover a world that is divided.  They know they cannot “fix” the broken world.  Instead, they long for its demise so they can build the new world that already resides within their heart. These are the Gen Y and Gen Z kids that the dying world fears – calling them lazy, irresponsible and screen addicts instead of honoring them for the amazing gifts they are bringing to our world.  I for one LOVE these kids (Cue  The B52’s)!

It is for the sake of these new queens and the new world we are called to bring forth that I am here. I am not hear to fix, save or heal the dying world (let it die!).  I am here to birth something new and I AM NOT ALONE!

Mission Accomplished – a message of hope and love

My dear, beloved, brothers and sisters.

As we enter into this new year and this new era…we have finally arrived at the purpose for which all that has past will prove helpful.

We came to this planet to be light.

Through struggle and hardship, we have found our light.

By moving through societal conditioning, and all the other lies that say we aren’t “good enough” or that there’s something wrong with us, we have found ourselves – we have found our SOUL.

Our SOUL – the magnificent divine angelic beatific presence of who we are.

 

We are love.

star-heart-comet

 

With gentle hearts that have been made strong through the burden of heartbreak.

Our own Sacred Hearts and Immaculate Hearts – hearts broken and bleeding bringing forth abundant beauty.

We have succeeded where others have failed.

We have survived the 3D world. (not without a few scrapes and bruises!)

Our Souls have been brought forth through the pain, the rejection, the disappointment, the deep and profound loneliness and the longing for communion.

And in this longing, we have found each other.

sacred-heart-immaculate-heart

Until now, our light has been hidden as we have nurtured, cultivated, honed our magic and our true divine gift.

Our magic and our gift are the same.

And they are

LOVE.

 

Our purpose on this plane is LOVE.  Our mission is to be that love. And to be that love in every way that is possible.

Period.

 

We made it through hell so that together, we can show others the way when the world they have known begins to crumble.

We are that light.

We are the lifeboats that will take them to the other shore.

This is what we came here for.

Our time is now.

taking care
