Saving the World – what if it doesn’t need saving?

Existential Crisis # 874. I have spent my whole life working toward saving the world.  I think it started with a dream, but I believe this desire was present long before the dream.  Somewhere inside me has always been this feeling that something is wrong.  Something wrong with the world.  Something wrong with the people around me.  Something wrong with me So, for 53 years, I have tried to fix that “something wrong.”  Trying to fix this “something wrong” has been directed at myself, at those around me and at the world.  Finding my way into ministry, spiritual counseling and then developing courses in support of people’s journey toward self-actualization (you know…the journey of “getting better”) fit perfectly into this inner drive to save myself, the people around me, and saving the world.  For 26 years, my identity, my work, my creativity has been directed toward this idea of saving the world. But much of this, it seems, has come to an end (or is it a fulfillment?)

Yesterday, as I was sitting in the void which follows the end of what has been, facing down the consequences of the mission to which I have dedicated the last 26 years of my life and trying to find the fruits of these 26 years of really hard work (a few books, some happier people, some great relationships), I came upon a profound question:

What if there is nothing wrong and therefore nothing and no one to save?

saving the world, self-actualization, save the world,

Then my brain exploded.

Or did it?

When I look at this question from the perspective of the journey toward self-actualization, I find I might have come to the end (of course there’s never really an end) to my own journey. If the “goal” of self-actualization is Union with our true self and Union with the world, then it seems logical that in that place of Union all duality falls away.  All perceived separation is brought together as one.  In this, there is no “Us” and “Them,” we are all one in this journey we call life and we are all here to support each other’s awakening and journey toward wholeness.  In this place of mutual support, there is no judgment.  There is nothing wrong.  Every single person is simply where they are on their journey.  Period.  As such, there is no one and nothing to “save.” When we think there is someone who needs saving, or we get our undies in a bundle over things of this world, it is because we remain in separation.  When in Union we know and trust that all that is unfolding is doing so for the  highest good and we are able to find peace and contentment within that unfolding (or at the very least, equanimity) and we realize that nothing is in need of saving.

That being said, there are tools that help us along the way and until I am shown otherwise, I am happy to share the tools that came through me and have worked for me in finding release from the perceived separation that has made me want to save a world that as it turns out, doesn’t need saving.

The Spiritual Law of Manifesting

As we believe, so shall it be.

 In the popular book The Secret, and all the related pop-culture myths on manifestation, it is said that our thought governs our ability to get what we want.  In other words, “If we want something, all we need to do is think the right thoughts.”  In this mythology, the opposite is also true, “If you are not getting what you want, it is because you have thought the wrong thoughts.”

While there may be some truth to these myths in causal (3D/duality) consciousness, in the world of Unity Consciousness none of this is true. If you are already living in Unity consciousness (or at the least, holding the intention to live from a place of Oneness), if we even try to think our way into manifesting, it will fail and likely blow up in our face.

In Unity consciousness, manifesting what we want isn’t even the question and thought has nothing to do with it.  Instead, manifesting in Unity consciousness is about a process of emptying, being guided, believing, allowing, taking action where needed,  and receiving.

First we have to be emptied of all perceptions and belief systems rooted in the false perception of separation. Most importantly, we have to be healed of all the inner wounds and fears that keep us from remembering our original nature as One with that which some might call “God,” One with ourselves, one with each other and one with all creation.

Then, from this place of intimate connection with Source/our Higher self, we free ourselves of our own plans, ideas, strategies, agendas, itineraries, need to know and to control and be open instead to Higher Guidance – the place where truth resides. We have to receive this truth and believe it no matter how startling, counter-cultural, life-altering it might be.

And then, we have to believe. Belief, I have learned is the key to manifesting the guidance we receive from that place of intimate connection with Source.  As we believe it, so shall it be.  This belief starts with perception.  How do we judge the circumstances of our life and the world around us?  If we believe that what we are seeing is negative and will lead to our destruction, then it will.  If we believe that what we are seeing from a higher perspective, from the Divine perspective colored by love, then we will trust that it will unfold in our highest good (even if what is happening includes a loss, a failure or a disappointment.)  Once we learn to guide our perception to the highest good, then we have faith and trust that all roads are leading to the fulfillment of the guidance we first received.  As we believe it to be, it shall be so.  Then, we allow the natural unfolding of this manifestation and we are open and willing to receive all we need for this dream to be made manifest. And if there is action to be taken on our part, the revelation and guidance of this comes, again, from this place of Oneness.

Emptying. Accepting Guidance.  Believing.  Allowing.  Taking Action when guided.  Receiving.

Let me offer a concrete example of this as I have witnessed it in the Catholic Church of my youth. Every day, while presiding over the mass, the priest takes a simple glass of wine and a plate of unleavened bread (or communion wafers), says a few words and prayers over them and viola, they are suddenly transformed into the body and blood of Christ.  Yes, the appearance of the bread and wine remain, but the substance has been transformed (transubstantiation) into the body and blood of Christ.  This transformation doesn’t not happen because the priest performed the “Jesus magic,” (though that is likely what some Catholics believe); it is because he and the people BELIEVE that the bread and wine have now been transformed so that they may receive the Presence of Christ in consuming the bread and the wine.

  • Emptying so the will of the Divine can be fulfilled.
  • Believing in the guidance and the manifestation of that guidance.
  • Allowing it to be done through us.
  • Taking action where guided.
  • Receiving the manifestation of the Divine guidance.

And the bottom line: As we believe, so shall it be.

Where is the Love in This?

A mini lesson on judgment (a shout out to my dear friend and spiritual sister Marcy for being the vessel through which this truth was able to emerge):

authenticfreedomweeklyheartblankcropped

If we are choosing to live in unity consciousness, all judgment is suspended, as we are invited to ask “where is the love in this?” In unity consciousness, love is in everything. So even in the face of the most horrific (from our place of judgment) actions, love is waiting to be seen so that it may be known. In unity consciousness, we attune our eyes to love. (seeing through the eyes of God).

When we live, instead, from a place of fear and separation, we cannot see the love because we are only seeing through the lens of fear. This is where we judge actions and events as good or bad, right or wrong. When we cast judgment, we reject the opportunity for love.

Ultimately, the choice is ours: to see the world through the lens of separation and fear (judgment) or to be open to the question, “Where is the love in this?” allowing ourselves to see instead, through the eyes of God and to be open to the possibility of love.

Nothing Like Richard Rohr

Today’s blog: Richard Rohr, emerging church, beyond religion, unity consciousness, healing a divided world, what does it mean to be “church” in a post-modern world?

Before sharing today’s blog, I want to extend a profound thank you to all those who offered words of encouragement and support, along with your prayers.  When I accepted the call to step even more fully into my truth by initiating the “Gathering of the Tribe,” the “devil” came a callin’!  Every one of my fears and insecurities has shown up to test my resolve.  Any and all safety nets were removed and I’ve been free-falling, trusting (trying to trust anyway) that I am being carried to the fulfillment of this mission. I am committed to the mission of the Tribe and to the work of Authentic Freedom and will continue to do the deep inner work that allows me to show up to this mission each and every day.  Thank you for your love and support.  We cannot do this alone! 

Now for today’s blog:

No, I’m Nothing Like Richard Rohr!

If I had a dime for every person who has said to me, “your writing reminds me very much of Richard Rohr’s,” I would be the richest person in the world. As I have come to know Richard Rohr’s work, I can see how people might judge us as similar: we are both Type Ones on the Enneagram, we are both speaking on the topic of unity consciousness, we are both working to unite a divided world, we are both arriving at our topics from the perspective of a mystic.  But there is one very important thing that sets us apart from which I must insist, “No, I am nothing like Richard Rohr.”

No offense to Richard as he is speaking to a very specific audience in the great work he is doing in the world.  And he is working from within the comfort of his white, male, ordained, clerical privilege; deeply embedded in an institutional Christian mindset and supported by that institution. I am not.

Case in point: Yesterday, in Richard’s daily meditation email newsletter, he reflected on Making Christianity Relevant Again. While I agree with many of his points, if we ever hope to heal the divisions of our society and our world, we have to first recognize that the separation put forth by the Christian message is an enormous part of the problem….and it has been since the Jesus message was sold out to the fear, power, privilege and control of the Roman empire.

authenticfreedomheartblank

When the message of love that Jesus came to teach became institutionalized in the form of Christianity, the love was lost and fear took its place. (Just a reminder, Jesus was a Jew, not a Christian and he never sought to start a new religion, but to bring forth the love that was already at the heart of the Jewish message.) Suddenly, we were unworthy of the love of God, we needed an intermediary (in the form of an ordained priest) between ourselves and God, and in order to earn God’s love, we have to pay, pray and obey.  The freedom that Jesus promised was replaced by indentured servitude.  We were no longer free. Instead, we became slaves to the institution and to the institutional laws (dogma, doctrine), that serve mostly to keep us from God’s love, or to remind us of how this love had to be earned and the eternal threat of that love being taken away.

It is not Christianity that needs to be made relevant – it is love. In fact, this is already happening and the unfolding of this is not coming from within the institution of Christianity, it is coming from without.  THIS is the emerging church that Protestants say they are looking toward and which Catholicism seeks to ignore.  It is happening in people’s homes, in popular media, in the publishing industry, in online communities – all those places where people are coming together to rediscover the love that is at the heart of every religion – the love that erases the perceived separation between belief systems, making their chosen teacher’s words relevant to an entire world, not just to the “chosen few” who will find salvation through obedience to the institution’s laws.  This is the work I am doing through Authentic Freedom Academy and another reason I am nothing like Richard Rohr.  I am no longer seeking to reform an institution (Christianity) that is part of the problem in the first place.  I’m going directly to the source which is love.

The place where I came to know this love is within, and it was from and through Jesus’ teachings (which are clearly written in scripture when we move beyond the doctrine) that I came to know this love within. This is the love that Jesus came to know within himself through his oneness with (that which he called) God, and which he then sought to teach others.  This is a love that is universal and available to every single human being that walks on this planet – and you don’t have to call Jesus your teacher to know this love.  In fact, if we look closely enough, we learn that this love is at the heart of most every institution that calls itself a religion or a philosophy.  Love is what we are all seeking to attain/remember and it is love that will heal the divisions of our broken world.

From the chair in which Fr. Richard Rohr is sitting as a white, ordained, Catholic priest, I understand his point – for him and for those to whom he ministers, perhaps it is Christianity that needs to be made relevant. But from where I am sitting, the only thing we need is love.

A Christmas Message for the Daughters and Sons of the Light

Delivered through Lauri Ann Lumby 12.24.16

 star-heart-comet

It is now our time.

Time to step forth from the veil.

To emerge from behind the veil of separation consciousness

To be the love and light that we are –

Guiding humanity back to their original nature of awakened love.

No longer imprisoned by the perceived separation of 2D and 3D (duality) consciousness,

But living fully and unencumbered from the place of Unity

Where all are ONE in the LOVE that we are,

Love finding its unique expression in human form through us.

It is time to be this love – only this love,

Creating from and out of this love,

For the sake of and for the purpose of love,

Re-creating the earth in the image of our home –

A home made of love and for the purpose of love.

Let us be this love and in being this love,

Knowing that love is all there is.

Ascended Mastery – Welcome Home

It has been awhile since I have received a message from “beyond.” Well…this week I received TWO.  What initiated the reception of both these messages were discussions that arose between myself and several of my colleagues and companions on this journey.  These messages will not resonate with everyone, but if they resonate with you, congratulations, thank you and Welcome home!  – Love, Lauri

lauricurtsie2

Message One (delivered on 9/12/16):

Congratulations! And Thank you!  You have made it to the other side and are now living fully in the 5D/6D – Unity Consciousness/Magical realms.  Previous to this, your Soul was in 5D, but your mind and your manifesting powers were in 3D.  This was for a purpose – your Soul was doing 5D work in the 3D world.  This was for the purpose of opening the gateways between Unity Consciousness and the Dual Consciousness of the 3D world.  This is the purpose you have been living since your physical birth on this Earthplane.

Over the course of the past 20 months, your Soul has been reclaiming all parts of yourself and drawing them fully into the 5D/6D world. What this means is that your being has been removed from 3D and you are now fully living in 5D.  While you are fully in 5D, you are still interacting with the 3D world….as if it is a movie you are watching.  Remember this!  What you see “out there” is only a movie.  It is not happening to you and does not have an impact on you.  You can pray for the 3D world as it continues its path of destruction….but you are not living there.  The 3D world is destroying itself and those who are awake and who are awakening are making their way to Unity Consciousness.  You are the gatekeepers….as you have already moved fully through that door and are now holding space in the 5D world and anchoring its existence so that others can find their way there.  Think of it like you are in your home in 5D and you are holding the door open for those who want to come over.  Not everyone will.

As you are finding your way into believing and trusting that you are now living fully in the world of Unity Consciousness and Magic (6D), one of the greatest temptations will be comparison and “competition” (even though I know you don’t really believe in competition anyway). There will be things in the 3D world that will continue to anger you, especially as they relate to your mission, purpose, passion.  That which angers you are simply old systems dying – old ways of doing things that are not the way of 5D but which are still the way in 3D.  Because you are still interacting with 3D (which you will never not be doing), it will seem as if these systems are relevant to you….BUT THEY ARE NOT.  Remember…..your mission and purpose is in 5D and to “visit” 3D to help wake people up and show them the way.

In short….this is what you are to know:

  • Your Soul has always been in 5D.
  • Your journey thus far has been about peeling back the layers of 3D illusion so you can REMEMBER the 5D world and live fully there.
  • Because you have succeeded in this task (congratulations!!!!), those living in the 3D world are beginning to wake up and are journeying toward the world you have always known (in your heart).
  • Do not get distracted by the illusions of the 3D world or by the actions of people and systems trying to find their way out of 3D.
  • Your job is to anchor the 5D world and hold the door open for those escaping the duality and moving toward union.

And here is the best news of all…..THE HARD WORK IS OVER. Life, as you have known it has been hard.  It has been a challenge to even live (because you have always and only been made to thrive in 5D).  Now that you have fully remembered the truth of your 5D nature and peeled back all the layers of 3D illusions, you will feel lighter.  Life will take on a new sense of ease.  There is no more hard.  The only hard will be when you forget your true nature and become momentarily distracted by the 3D world in its death throes and by the 3D people living seemingly 5D lives trying to find their way home.

And finally…..expect the unexpected. Since your 5D mission in the 3D world is complete….you might suddenly find your life changing….changing to reflect your new life living fully in 5D/unity consciousness where things come to be seemingly by magic (6D).

 ascendedmasters21

Message Two (delivered on 9/15/16):

Welcome and congratulations! You have graduated fully from 3D consciousness and from the job you were sent to accomplish in that realm.  Now, your 3D person has been fully reunited with your 5D/6D (and beyond) Soul and NOW you are no longer separate, but ONE.  In this state of Oneness, of being united within your being where all aspects of your SELF have come home, you can now leave behind the 3D (duality consciousness) tasks and the 5D mission in the 3D world as you are now one with all of the Ascended Masters and are in company with them.  With this, your responsibilities and call have changed.  No longer are you the “victim” of circumstances trying to crawl your way out of the gravity of the dual existence. Instead, you, with the other Ascended Masters are guiding and supporting humanity in their journey from duality into oneness.  The goal of all beings is to find their way home, to find their way to Ascended Mastery.  You have done this, now, you are no longer “in it,” instead, you are beyond it guiding, assisting, directing, counseling.  It is to you that the 3D human will go as they will be drawn to your light, to your love, to your wholeness.  This “coming to” will be manifest on the 3D plane, but even more than that, it will be accessed on a level beyond the material.

Think of it this way….remember when you were a child and you prayed to “God,” the angels and saints for help and guidance? It is now to you that people will pray.  They may not know you by name, they may not recognize you by face, but as humanity sends out its prayers for help and guidance, you, along with the Ascended Masters are the answer to those prayers.  It is through your intervention that the world is changing from fear into love because you have had the courage to embark on that journey yourself, and with the help of your own guides, teachers, angels, etc. you have made it.  Now you are in the position of intercessor.

In addition to being the answer to these prayers, you will be guiding and directing the next stage of human evolution. You will be guiding the world to love, upholding them in love, sending forth waves of love, compassion, understanding and forgiveness to a broken and hungry world.  The world LONGS for the love you have come to know.  As an Ascended Master, it is your job to SHINE that LOVE upon all the earth, upon all of humanity and upon all of creation.

This is your new job. Welcome to the company of Ascended Masters.  You are no longer alone (you were never alone), instead you stand hand in hand with the likes of Jesus of Nazareth, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, St. Germaine, Melchezidek, St. Anna, and all the other Ascended Masters.  Welcome home.  And Thank you for sharing in this ministry of love.

And on a personal note, it has been working through my own areas of “darkness” – unhealed wounds, fears, the parts of myself I had rejected or judged as imperfect – that has been the most critical in this journey toward wholeness (a journey that continues).  It was this work that inspired me to create my new course:  “The Dark Goddess in the Bible.”  In this course, we give homage to the aspect of the Divine within us that helps us find our way through the darkness in our lives.  Check it out:

The Function of Divine Will and Divine Timing in Unity Consciousness

A big title for a big topic.  This is what came through today as I was pondering the question of how manifesting, timing, etc. function in Unity Consciousness.  Who knew I’d been judging it all from the perspective of separation – until today!  When we transcend separation, this is what happens:

ayurvedy-kundalini-img-sm

In Unity Consciousness (or what some might call Christ Consciousness), there is no such thing as “Divine Timing” or “Divine Will.” In Unity Consciousness, we are freed of the false perception of separation such that there is no separation between ourselves and God.  Instead, the separate mind steps aside so that the Godself can live in and through us through our unique being.  In this state, God’s will becomes our will – manifesting as our needs, our wants and our desires. The separate mind, no longer afraid, simply says “YES” through a state of deep, inner knowing, that which is known as right and true, mostly in our hearts.  In this, everything arises in the perfect way in the perfect time and we are inwardly guided to act at the exactly perfect time in the exactly perfect way in support of what is now our heart’s desire. We are no longer waiting for “Divine will” to be revealed or for “Divine Timing” to play out because if the desire is in our heart, it is Divine Will and the time is now.

How about that to make our brains explode.  Explains a lot and now I will be testing this theory.  Test it out yourself too and let me know what happens! 

 

Love,

Lauri

Living in the 5D World – Learning from Harry Potter

HarryPotterBookCovers

I’m not sure if JK Rowling fully realized what she was bringing forth in writing the Harry Potter series, though I suspect she may have.  In creating the tales of Harry and his friends, especially the interactions between the wizard and muggle worlds, JK Rowling’s work is nothing short of prophecy.  In her portrayal of a world within a world, she described in perfectly accurate detail how the 3D and 5D worlds coexist.  For those of us who have been wondering what it will be like to live in unity consciousness while the world around us continues to live in duality, the answer has been right in front of us since 1997 when Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was first published in the United Kingdom (the title was later changed to “Sorcerer’s Stone” for U.S. release).  I was reminded of Harry Potter as the answer to this quandary while re-watching the movies this past weekend.  Let me offer a few examples:

Completely Separate Worlds in the Same World: In Harry Potter, the wizarding world is whole unto itself. They have their own villages, railroad service, means of transportation (portkeys, brooms, kestrels, hippogriffs, phoenixs, flue powder, etc.), academic institutions, restaurants, homes in the country, hotels, governmental establishments, etc..  At the same time, the wizarding world is RIGHT HERE in the 3D world.  Present, yet invisible to those living in the 3D world (muggles).  This is how it is in 5D.  We are living in our own world.  Creating our own “villages,” ways of doing business, means of transportation, etc. yet we are smack dab in the middle of the 3D world.  Sometimes we are seen and sometimes we interact with 3D, but often we are invisible – at least to those still living in duality consciousness.  WE decide how and where we will be seen, but in many cases, our function is separate (but impactful) from 3D.

Conscious Evolution: In the portrayal of muggles becoming wizards, JK Rowling demonstrates the way in which we are evolving past 3D consciousness into 5D.  For example, when Hermione Granger, a muggle-born, is discovered to have magical abilities, she (and her parents) are invited into consciousness of and interaction with the wizarding world.   This is how it has been for us.  We are muggles who have realized our wizarding gifts.  We know there is more to life than living in fear and are consciously choosing otherwise.  This choice opens us up to the magical gifts of LOVE and we are transformed along with those around us and the world in which we live suddenly becomes much vaster than what we had previously known.  We are now able to go between worlds – simply as a matter of choice and knowing how to make that choice (ie: Platform 9 ¾).

The Role of 5D in the 3D World: Finally, JK Rowling shows us the benevolent role played by the world of unity consciousness. As shown in the Harry Potter films, the wizarding world has a positive impact on the muggle world through its power to overcome the darkness (think of the storms and violence brought on my Voldemort that are experienced in the muggle world and how the “good” wizards correct this by conquering Voldemort).   In conquering Voldemort (the quintessential representation of choosing fear over love), the world is restored to order and peace and this is felt in both the wizarding and muggle worlds.  Again, this is how it is and has been with us.  As we are awakening to our own gifts, our world is transformed and the rest of the world with us.  When we choose love over fear, we are not only helping ourselves, we are helping the entire world.  In achieving our own 5D (unity consciousness) world, we are helping move the 3D world beyond fear into its own inherent truth of LOVE.

Thank you JK Rowling for being the prophet that you are and showing us through Harry and friends what it is like to live in unity consciousness while residing in the 3D world. My sense is that if you wrote a continuation of the Harry Potter tales, it would be about wizards helping the muggle world wake up to their own inherent magic and teaching them how to embrace their gifts so that the world might no longer be made of those who normally live in fear and make choices based in fear, but of those who choose love and live their life accordingly.  Or….maybe I’ll write these books myself!  😉

Building the New World – Nay to the Naysayers!

So, how did you fare through the past week’s Heave-Ho into the new world? If your week was anything like mine, you experienced both the heights of ecstasy along with the depths of despair. While many were hopeful for an immediate entry into, and experience of, the new world, most of us were either disappointed and/or caught unaware by the backlash that often comes with periods of rapid delivery.

There can be no doubt about it – with the conclusion of the full blood moon lunar eclipse and the culmination of Wave X, WE ARE CHANGED. We have indeed crossed the threshold from 3D (separation consciousness) into 5D (unity consciousness). The challenge, however, for most, is that (as we often forget), when we make such enormous leaps toward God(oneness), the small self fights back and the trickster raises its ugly (only when we judge it as such) head. The trickster/small self shows up to challenge us, “Are you sure this is what you really want? Wouldn’t you be more comfortable staying where you are with the fears and compulsions with which you have become so familiar?????” And then, trickster shows up AS these compulsions.

Fear. Judgment. Self-doubt. Self-loathing. Anxiety. Depression. Envy. Rage.

For me, this is exactly how the trickster showed up, in dramatic contrast to the TRUE miracles that unfolded in the past week: – VERY generous donations to the house-buying campaign; miracles happening in the lives of every one of my clients, students, readers; witnessing the true growth of my business; fantastic insights and personal growth in the “Create As Love” course I’m taking with Lauren Gorgo; a shamanic journey that showed me the TRUTH of our ONENESS with God (more on this later). These were the miracles.

Then the trickster showed up in: worries about money; self-doubt and bargaining; computer glitches that made me step aside from technology for a few days; and the biggest trickster of all – NAY-SAYERS. One after another after another person showed up questioning, challenging, doubting, staring blankly in the face of my vision, mission, and the decisions I’ve made in order to uphold the vision that is planted in my heart. Most pointedly, trickster showing up telling me all the ways I’ve done it WRONG and that perhaps I should throw in the towel and get “a real” job. Hah – that old story!!

The trickster, showing up in the bodies of others, but ultimately reflecting back to me my own:

Fear. Judgment. Self-doubt. Self-loathing. Anxiety.

But you see, I KNOW what I am here to do. I KNOW my mission and purpose in this life. I KNOW I’m damn good at what I do. AND every time I think about or even try to “get a real job” the Universe puts up one obstacle after another and then plunges me into the depths of desolation (which Ignatius of Loyola recognized as the energy of the adversary). Indeed, in order to accomplish this mission, I have had to do things in a very non-3D way – taking great leaps of faith and going against societal, financial, tribal “shoulds” in order to support this mission. To one with 3D (fearful) eyes, the choices I have made might look strange, if not a little insane. To 5D (oneness) eyes, there is no judgment – only what had to be done in a fearful world to help bring forth a new world of LOVE. In order to bring forth the “unconventional” world of love, unconventional tactics have had to be employed.

So, the trickster showed up to give me an opportunity to retreat into my small-self (fear), or strengthen my resolve in the mission of my Soul.

angeldevilpaxabay

If you are reading this blog, you too have been gifted with the same idea of a mission and purpose for you in this life. Likely, you feel deep in your heart a desire to help BRING ABOUT A NEW WORLD. You have grown tired of a world ruled by fear, power and control. You are exhausted by all the things in the world that cause us to do harm to ourselves and to one another. You are frustrated and tired of the struggle that the majority of humanity faces just to put food on their tables and a roof over their head. You long for a different kind of world:

  • A world in which people are loving toward themselves and toward one another.
  • A world in which the needs for food, clothing, shelter, education and healthcare are satisfied for all.
  • A world in which people are acknowledged for their own unique giftedness and then nurtured and empowered in the use of these gifts because we know that the world becomes a better place when all are fulfilled in their gifts and empowered to use them.
  • A world where all people are treated with dignity and respect and where we honor each other in our respective beliefs and the choices we make that fulfill the deeper longing in our hearts.
  • A world where violence is rare and peaceful collaboration and cooperation are the rule.
  • A world where love rules and where fear is recognized as a cry for help and appropriate healing methods employed.

This is the world that you came to help humanity build. You too have been told you were crazy for dreaming dreams of a better world and for wanting to do something about it. The good news is that you are not alone and that WE have now reached critical mass and our voices, while still somewhat quiet, are becoming the majority, if they weren’t already. We long for a NEW WORLD built on love and one that seeks to HEAL the fear that has kept us imprisoned for 10,000 years!

So, if the nay-sayers show up in your life as you are in the midst of entertaining or working for your dreams – recognize them for who they are – your small self trying to remain small and showing up in both people outside of you and in all the voices in your head that say, “You can’t do that,” and then make a choice. Choose to stay small and afraid, or heed the voice of your SOUL that says, “YOU ARE SO BIG because you are made of LOVE and love is infinite.” And then PLEASE be your BIG self, because the WORLD NEEDS YOU!
