State of the Ethers Pt 1/2: If this is the Age of Aquarius, why do I feel so crap?

After such a hyped build up and a massive day, many are now feeling post solstice blues…

I’ve been part of many worldwide meditations but this was a whole new level. In the few minutes leading up to the exact time of the Cobra meditation – timed to the Saturn Jupiter conjunct, the feeling as thousands world wide tuned in to the group meditation was amazing. Congratulations ground crew: we easily surpassed the critical mass of beings required to shift up a level. Over the next few weeks to months things will percolate into the physical.

Welcome to the Age of Aquarius. Kudos to whoever made this masterpiece.

The upgrade requires some acclimatisation time for the physical body, and brings up residues. Fears and dysfunctional habits must be cleared to allow the new energies to flow. This can feel like a huge emotional drop after the heightened state of the solstice. Christmas and New Year is also an emotionally challenging time for many – looking back over a difficult year, and toxic family politics. There is also opposition from the dark to try and counteract this vibrational upgrade – hence the new wave of lockdowns, bird flu and negativity all over the mainstream news. They know they’ve lost but they keep trying to draw things out.

More meme excellence by Regina Cornelio

Lightworkers, witches, starseeds whatever you call yourself: batter up, you’re on! This is the time we’ve been waiting for. More and more mainstream folks are awakening and their minds opening. The disclosures over the next few months will throw the rest of the unawakened into the deep end and they will be looking for guidance and answers. Whether it’s having conversations one on one, teaching, healing, blogging, creating art…the time is now and YOU are ready to hold that space. There will be no need to force your perspective down people’s throats, as people become ready they will ask, or synchronistically come across your work. It’s OK to have doubts, or moments of imposter syndrome. There is strong intention in these writings – if you are reading this, you are ready. Trust the universe that brought you to these words.

A few key things will finally kick off in 2021:

As we clear the dross, more intuitive and “supernatural” abilities will start coming online. We will also be having more and more conscious interaction with the elemental realm. Faerie tales shall be revealed as glimmers of history. Humans will have to learn energy boundaries and customs for interaction with beings in different forms. The concept of multiple dimensions, timelines, and how false teachings have shaped society will be shocking for many.

In the next few months we will see a HUGE swathe of men stepping up in terms of spirituality. No more dabbling or lurking in the shadows. They will be coming out of the spiritual closet and openly living their path and their truth. This coincides with a much broader, more integrated concept of masculinity in the mainstream. Men are emerging from the shadows of toxic patriarchy as much as women are.

Divine Unions – lots of new high vibratory relationships. The dark energies have long opposed this, preventing people from meeting and encouraging dysfunction, addiction and fear. A lot of that was cleared during the solstice upgrade. The downside is those persisting in relationships that no longer serve their highest good will be feeling increasingly conflicted and uncomfortable. There is so much regarding divine partnerships that it became an entire blog post of its own and will be posted tomorrow as the second half of this update.

Focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Right now, superficially things may look chaotic, but many things will be revealed to the mainstream this year. There has been massive behind-the-scenes progress. Your mindspace, consciously or subconsciously, has a huge effect on the collective scale. When an awakened person embodies the energy of joy and love, you generate enough energy to counter balance dozens in fear. Take time out to do things you love each day, and to envision the future you wish to see.

Part 2/2: Divine partnerships will be posted tomorrow

State of the Ethers: Anchor & Transmute

We are at end game times. The time for awakening people is over. At this point our job is not to awaken, but to be a lighthouse in the storm, and anchor in the highest possible energy. As Goenkaji, father of Vipassana would say: Remain Equanimous.

It would be easier if people learned the unpleasant truths in increments, so that their rational minds and emotions could adjust gradually. However, the societal conditioning is so pervasive that anything out of the mainstream is immediately attacked as conspiracy theory. They attack both the message and messenger. People are unlikely to open their minds at this point, so avoid getting mired in conflict. They will hear of it in the forthcoming tidal waves of disclosure. Their emotional reaction upon learning what has transpired may well spill into civil violence. It is our job to remain centred and stabilise the energy field to make the awakening and transition as smooth as possible.

Teachers in the ego trap of playing guru to adoring minions will soon be exposed. Some very high profile people with vast social media followings have fallen into this, and it makes them easily co-opted by evil energies. This is important, as once the proverbial hits the fan people are going to need to know who is the real deal and capable of holding space, and who has simply been plagiarising others’ work. (This is the reason I stopped writing the updates some years ago).

Disconnecting from the conflicts and holding the line is the theme for most lightworkers. You will be far more effective on the etheric planes presently, and there is much cleansing and transmuting to be done. One very well known one is the Violet Flame. This flame transmutes anything out of alignment, and can be used on situations, cities, people and animals. It has an immobilising effect on anyone attacking you, as their fuel of anger, hate etc suddenly gets transmuted.

Stun them with violet glory. Spock knew where it was at. To the anonymous sci-fi geek who made this meme: humanity thanks you

It will not harm them, and used repeatedly will transmute layers of fear, anger or survival ego based energy. Side note: when Violet Flaming cities, don’t forget to send it underground too, a LOT of transmuting and clearing is required under the surface. For those of you aligned with dragon energy, you may find a few dragon helpers so delighted by the good work being done they will join in.

Don’t forget to violet flame yourself. Add it to your daily shower. My phone currently has a violet flame wallpaper.

We are at the time of vernal and autumnal equinox, a time of balancing. Is your giving and receiving balanced? The theme of anything out of integrity falling apart continues. A good time to clear physical clutter. Acknowledge and thank your house and its spirit for providing safety and shelter, ask if any repairs are required.

Energetic housekeeping may be in order too. Keep chipping away at the long overdue to-do list, or go back and properly repair anything that has been quickly patched up – relationships, websites, finances and vehicles. Keep checking in, get your life running on the best path of integrity, this will mean there are less ego hooks to get you sucked into conflict and off course. Discernment is vital right now.

We have got this. We have all been waiting for this and we are ready. Stay the course. Until next time, remain awesome.

State of the Ethers Sept 10 2020

 

The rollercoaster that is this year keeps delivering. The two main competing timelines of 5D Ascension/ Awakening vs 3D Dystopia/ Armageddon continue to play out. How you feel emotionally at a given moment is a good barometer of which one you are on, regardless of circumstance. Many people vacillate between the two, giving a sense of time speeding up and odd deja vu moments.

There is progress under the surface. Metaphorically and literally. Take a peek at https://www.volcanodiscovery.com/earthquakes/lists.html
Look at earthquakes in various regions, especially in regards to depth and distribution. Even more interesting, some countries’ seismograph sites are blocking certain region’s results

The birthing is a long labour, we’re all a bit over it, but things are shifting. Choose to believe in it, then you can feel it, tap into it and thus ground it ASAP to physical reality for everyone. One person’s awakening sparks another’s. The recurring image I have is of the lighting of the beacon fires in the Lord of The Rings: Return of the King.

What is put out, via intention or physical action, is now coming back quickly. Good if you are trying to create something positive, not so much if you’re being shifty. In the last few days I have witnessed the Universe deal a couple of karmic wake up calls in record time. This is not punishment, simply faster energetic account keeping. It’s training wheels for 5D, where manifestation is almost instantaneous. In 5D we must be conscious with our energy, acting with integrity.

The darker energies are desperate to pull things back down, trying to keep people in chaotic fear and anger states (aka easily manipulated and a tasty morsel to feed off). Cue yet more massive wildfires to distract y’all. This may be a good time to take a break from social media or certain individuals in your life. Nervy knots of uncertainty are being projected as fireballs of overreaction towards others. Do your best to be positive, forgive yourself for sometimes backsliding into fear.

Same advice as always, just at a higher priority – rest, revive, ground, energetically shield, eat well, get some sunlight. Be gentle with yourself and others. Once you break through the current stressors, you will find new gifts available during meditations and visualisations, and psychadelic dreams. These, like the instant karma, are glimmers of the new energy that we are moving towards, and that we can pull towards us.

Shakti calls – are you ready?

The sensual energy, creativity and emotional connection are all aspects of the Kundalini Shakti, or Shakti, the divine feminine spiritual force. Far more than a mere sexual force, it is the luscious, juicy path of inspiration, discovery, happiness, health and spiritual well-being. It’s your life mojo! It is a forgiving, generous and strong energy and drives us to grow into our potential.
Many women today are disconnected to their Shakti energy – unhappy, unfulfilled, creatively blocked.
They struggle with an energetically toxic world and internalise this as toxic thinking – the need to compete, compare, look perfect, have the perfect life and partner – all external validation to prove they are “good enough”.
The truth is we are all more than good enough.
Even as we are works-in-progress, we are more than good enough.
We just need to reconnect. We need to listen to ourselves, not the “shoulds”. Follow what calls you, question and challenge your fears.
Ah, there’s the fine print: more than good enough demands the best of you, and nothing less. It requires improvement and spiritual growth – there is no place or complacency or victimhood.
We have all seen that woman who has that magnetic something, even if she isn’t what media would tell us is gorgeous.
We have met people that have crafted amazing lives, in big and small ways.
People that have overcome horrendous tragedy or illness and left an amazing legacy. They have all had to push through their fears.
No, some people won’t like it. Those who haven’t stepped into their own power are threatened. There will be snide comments and judgments. Leave them to the mirror of their insecurities.
Be brave enough to celebrate your body, your sexuality, the physical experience. Be brave enough to feel smart, strong beautiful, in all your flaws. Be brave enough to give yourself permission to dream and grow. Find your internal compass, so you are not windswept by a world that tries to tell you you need to by x,y and z to be a success.
This is the gift of Kundalini Shakti. She calls..are you ready

So…had a spiritual awakening. Some tools for the fast lane!

The shift in consciousness can be a huge creative and lifestyle inspiration..or an existential crisis, depending on how you handle it.

People often think of awakenings as extreme – whether traumatic or ecstatic – these are the dramatic ones we often hear about. (Many yogic/energy teachers are wary of people consciously trying to raise Kundalini for this reason.) But they can be just subtle shifts in awareness and ideology that kind of sneak up. It just may be the wake-up call of an illness or break-up. Even getting older – you realise you can’t have or do it all – so it’s time to get real and choose. The other big one is realising we are abusing our planet in an utterly non-sustainable way..and no-one is going to rescue us. As a species we need to change track..fast. It is part of the process of emotionally and spiritually growing up. These are not once off events, smaller versions of these shifts happen many times over the course of a lifetime.

Either way, your perception has shifted; of yourself, the world and your role in it.

You might have a few hours or days of bliss and glee. The burst of learning, inspiration and creativity can be really energising. You want to share your joy and newfound insights. A whole new world of possibilities…

Then things get real. Things won’t feel right, until you get the bigger picture answers. People often talk about Kundalini awakenings in terms of dramatic physical symptoms – heat, sleeplessness, hypersexuality etc. What I want to address in this article is the common mental, emotional and ideological challenges people face. Because these are the keys to integrating the shift.

In a tough-love nutshell:

a) You drank of the nectar and had a glimpse. You and the universe have agreed that there are bigger and better things

b) In order to make these shifts, your egoic identifications are being challenged. The ego resists change, however positive it may be.

c) This shift in consciousness is permanent – and it is a call to self-responsibility and action. There is no going back. Resistance is futile, will hurt, and take a lot of energy.

You can fool your mind, but the soul will not be bullshitted with excuses, justifications and distractions. The amount of denial required to maintain the facade results in agitated, ungrounded energy (anxiety, frustration) or emotional shutdown (depression, hopelessness, apathy). It is easy to project this emotional edginess, and “my life isn’t right because…” onto the people or circumstances close to us, or whatever triggered the awakening.

Worst case scenarios are people internally churning until something unrelated triggers off white-hot rage, misery or anxiety attacks. The stereotypical midlife crisis is another (sadly common) manifestation. They have ignored their inner calling to grow and evolve for so long that they feel the need to reject their entire life circumstances and regress to an 18 year old responsibility free lifestyle to feel alive/themselves again. Basically hiding behind a new set of distractions.

My best advice would be listen, learn, embrace and be patient – with yourself and others. Things may feel so off that you want to run away – literally or metaphorically. The external world will shift, BUT there is a delay. Yes, it is a time for change and decisions, but not rash ones. Be gentle with yourself – don’t feel that everything that came before is a failure or meaningless, and beat yourself up. Everything that came before is the journey brought you to this realisation. The lessons tend to recycle until you get it.

Things that used to feel fulfilling may no longer fit. A sense of yearning for a more purposeful life, to feel a part of something bigger, are common themes.The changes could be subtle or dramatic – consciously spending more time with family and friends to cultivate better relationships, more time for personal pursuits, activism, a healthier lifestyle, change of living circumstances or job. It doesn’t mean that you need to reject everyone or everything, but as you change, your dynamics with people will shift. Some people may not be as important in your life – some may leave. People can be genuinely concerned, threatened or jealous about the new you, especially if you have made sudden dramatic changes. Give things time to adjust before burning your bridges.

Higher consciousness states are a purification – the ego needs to be burned off. It requires moving into a place of higher integrity, personal responsibility and sharing your gifts.  External barometers of “success” such as money, comparison, attention, high flying jobs, the right partner have less meaning. So it’s a case of finding the new after shrugging off the old.

Time to clear out little icky things about ourselves we’d prefer not to think about. Unless you are The Buddha, you have some – so it’s cool. We’re all in on this journey. So, time for the hard questions:

  1. What aspects of life aren’t working for you – what changes do you want to make? And how/why will they bring you fulfilment?

Don’t end up with a whole new set of distractions or labels. You don’t need to fit a societal version of spiritual or masculine/feminine or successful.  Find what fits you. No “shoulds”.

  1. What are MY core values? What are my short/ middle/ long term goals?

Hopefully your values and goals are mutually agreeable!! If they have been out of alignment with each other it will explain a lot. Commonly in an awakening comes the realisation that these aren’t in sync, or that they’re not what we thought they were. Perhaps we were operating on societal messages/ belief systems on what a “good” or “successful” person does and should aspire to. The labels we identify with often determine these – a successful husband, an attractive person, a good mother..etc. They may not fit you.

Goals are important to have and strive for – when you see where you are and where you would like to be, it is easier to come up with strategies and direction. Life is evolution. That’s what goals are for – not for beating yourself up with because you’re not there yet. Beware of putting expectations on outcomes “I’ll only be happy when/if..”. If I don’t achieve “x,y and z, I am a failure”. In the western world, we cause ourselves so much stress over the should haves – a partner, travelled the world, a house etc. There is a Buddhist saying about desire being the cause of all unhappiness. It takes you out of the present.

  1. What are the excuses your ego is hiding behind?

Not talented enough ~ too old ~ I’d look like an idiot ~ I have a mortgage ~ my partner wouldn’t let me ~ I’m too busy ~  if it was meant to be, it would have happened ~ my terrible upbringing ~ the dodgy back.

There is often a reason behind them – scars and baggage are a big one here. Emotional wounds create victim- or fear-based thinking, avoidance and distraction patterns. There comes a point where you cannot progress until these are resolved and released. This may be a matter of journaling and meditation, forgiveness, or professional counselling.

Remember at the time you did the best you could. Now that you have more life experience, knowledge and awareness under your belt you can wrestle your demons into submission. Cue the sleeper hold.

  1. What are the rewards of your uncomfortable comfort zone?

You get to stay SAFE. SUPERIOR. (= SCARED …..shhh!) You get to sneer at people who are living the life you secretly want to, knowing that you are safely out of the limelight where no one can criticise. The call to higher consciousness involves taking responsibility for yourself. People can spend entire lifetimes running from that, looking for the next fix to distract them.

Admitting to and naming the internal enemies is half the battle. Once you have the conscious answers to the questions, a plan of action can then emerge. It may be short or long term, and subject to change. There are still everyday practicalities and commitments to honour.

That old saying: When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I would like to addendum that: When the student is ready, the resources and answers that were always there become visible.

The ball is in your court. All the best.

What awakening experiences did you have? How did you handle it? What changes did you make?

Sacred Sexuality: The Evolution of Intimacy

Many Westerners are being drawn to a more holistic approach to life in general, and their personal lives are no exceptions. People often have a sense of something more, a higher purpose or meaning, that they yearn for, even if they can’t articulate exactly what it is. I personally believe Sacred Sexuality offers the answers many are seeking.

It is the art of bringing the profound spiritual experience and immense physical pleasure into one’s sexual life, and ultimately into all aspects of life. Sex is for most people the most common and easily accessed experience of the divine, and with practise this energy can be harnessed and used constructively.  

Like any extraordinary experience, it sets off irrevocable changes…in our outlook on life, and how we feel about ourselves. In the same sense that the true yogic path is far more than just stretching, the traditional teachings of sacred sex were an inclusive spiritual outlook on life, embracing sexuality, the body and the everyday physical experience as a pathway to spiritual evolution. Many indigenous cultures have their own forms of sacred sexuality eg. paganism, Tantra, Taoist teachings. The recurring underlying themes are the synergistic creative force of merging polarised energies and accessing higher consciousness.

It is about recognising the divine in everything, and experiencing and embodying this divinity. Sexuality becomes a dance of physical and spiritual love, of energy and higher consciousness.

Physically the nervous system has to accustom to higher levels of pleasure without overload, resistance or dissociation. Emotionally speaking, this is also true. Hitting ecstatic states involves a deep level of surrender. It is about the experiencing yourself without any labels: paradoxically at the most primal and powerful, yet most vulnerable and open. To share this with another is beautiful, transforming and *VERY* humbling. So even though it’s a positive experience, it can be confronting.  People find transcendental sexual experiences can unexpectedly throw their relationship dynamics. Interestingly, the people who often have the hardest time are those who have been quite promiscuous, who on the surface may seem sexually liberated (and have a lot of ego investment in that label), but in fact are uncomfortable with the deep intimacy. This sudden emotional and energetic openness can feel like loss of identity, control or freedom, and it is very easy to withdraw from the partner.

Like any spiritual path, facing, accepting and releasing the ego’s needs, wounds and resistances are an inherent part of the journey. Deep emotional healing will take place. You can only get so far if you don’t want to deal with this.

The rewards are immense. Feeling happier with yourself and life.  Increased healing, health, energy, vitality, radiance and joy. A whole new level of emotional connection with people (not just sexual partners) becomes possible.  Oh yes, and the amazing sex…these are the experiences that leave you energised, tingling and sensitised for days afterwards.
