** Go Gratitude Experiment Update **
Have you been feeling the waves of transformation lately?
Does it feel like a gentle rain cleansing the soul … or it is more akin to being crushed under a swift moving tsunami?
Whatever the case may be, rest assured – you are not alone!
Waves of change are rolling across the face of creation, and indeed, deep within the heart of Humanity. Trust us – we’re feeling it, too! Whew!
This amplification is reflected in the upsurge in Mass Meditations, revelations of Truth and accountability coming to Light, opportunities to rise above fear-mongering and greed and an awakening to the true Divine nature and brilliance of Humanity.
As you know …
Life, by nature, flows in cycles and we are in the throes of a massive cyclic shift right now. It may be uncomfortable, inconvenient and even downright depressing, and yet … there is a bright side to all this *shift*. (Even if the mass media would have us believe otherwise!)
It is this: We are 100% responsible for our lives, and so can BE the change we wish to see in the world.
This may come with a bit of a sting when one looks at the ‘surface’ state of the world (being 100% percent responsible, and all) and yet … this is where being 100% responsible for our lives is of great worth and a profound blessing.
As technology has developed, in direct relation to humanity’s level of consciousness, we are awakening to Truth, being empowered to follow our bliss and connect with our Soul families worldwide.
What a gift!
We are also being called up, each and every one of us, to embody our highest nature, to let go of all that no longer serves and choose the power of Love over the Love of power.
As co-creators of our reality, taking 100% responsibility for our lives, we are also awakening to the power of Cooperation.
“Coming together, in responsible action, we make a difference.” ~ Maria Yraceburu
Just like parents who have co-created a child, then must cooperate to raise it, Humanity is remembering that we must gather, connect, empower and support one another in order to move through these waves of change with ease and grace.
Gregg Braden, in his book Fractal Time, reveals there is an underlying pattern marking great periods of change throughout all time. During these historic events, many civilizations crumbled while others managed to thrive. What was the defining factor?
Those that were laid to waste fell into fear and separation – an ‘every man for himself’, survival at any cost response to the changing world.
Those that thrived came together in the spirit of Cooperation to rise above the challenge, to find the gift in the change and leverage current possibilities to support the continuance of Life.
We are at the heart of one of these nodes, these waves of change, and are being invited to find our way out of separation and into Cooperation. It is driving us to look deeply within ourselves to find our Truth and courage to face our fears, while we gather the strength to grow beyond what has been known as we step into the NEW.
Global meditations are one example of cooperation. These are amazing oppotunities to practice change on a global level, and yet each of us must be 100% responsible for our daily connection to Spirit and for finding our inner Truth and Light. So how do we find our way through the heaviness and sorrow that often accompanies change and letting go?
Consider this perspective: “The way in is the way out.”
Now - take a look at the symbol of Gratitude. One may decipher this cryptic message by simply tracing the symbol from ‘outside in’ then from ‘center out’.
In this same way, we leverage the power of meditation (Cooperation with Spirit). First, we go inward to find our center — our inner truth and connection to Source — and then flow outward from this sacred space … to go and grow, to live and BE the Great-Full-Ness of Life!
This mirrors the transformational process of caterpillar to butterfly, as well. Once the caterpillar, with limited sight and a voracious appetite, has fulfilled its cycle, it gets all wrapped up in itself, dissolving all bonds and attachments to what it used to be, in order to embody its highest nature. The wisdom of the butterfly teaches us, “The way in IS the way out.”
Humanity is, similarly, entering an epochal age of Mass Transformation.
We are witnessing the dissolving of institutions, programs, patterns and thought-forms that no longer serve, and thereby creating space for the new to flow in — NOW.
The above Butterfly Hu-Man crop circle is a timely confirmation of what is taking place in our lives – and an invitation to rise above the landscape of time to take in a larger view of what is right before our eyes.
Yes … change can also be painful. Our suffering has been real and many tears have been shed as we gaze upon the ignorance of the past. However, we are awakening to this opportunity to come together and cooperate – like the imaginal cells of the butterfly — to flow beyond the dissolution, each taking our place in the great circle of life, rising beyond what has been to thrive in a new age of Peace and Illumination.
So what is our day-to-day role in the cosmic unfolding?
- Follow our bliss
- Be the peace we seek
- Find the gift in the challenge
- Choose an Attitude of Gratitude
- Live from center, practicing the art of conscious co- creation and cooperation
- Focus our thoughts, actions and choices on supporting the continuance of Life
- Love ourselves & the experience of being ALIVE!
This is truly a magnificent time to be Alive. We are becoming Universal Humans, our hearts opening as Flowers of Light, to embody the higher vibrations now flooding the planet – from the heavens, from our hearts, and through our rising consciousness.
The wisdom of the ancients is being bridged with the Power of Now, and we are at the epicenter of change.
It is our great honor, and gift, to receive the blessings born of our faith wisdom and joyously witness the Shift of the Ages. As we cooperate with present energies, focusing our thoughts and actions on our passions and soul callings, while daily strengthening our relationship to Spirit — for this is where our true power springs from – we flow into this arriving Age with ease and grace.
Thankfully, Gratitude is a gentle guide, helping us navigate the swift waters of change we find ourselves riding. Gratitude teaches us to remain centered, to appreciate what IS, and have faith as we live in the mystery – the unknown – by harmonizing with the patterns of creation.
Gratitude, in structure and material form, is revealed in every aspect of creation – from tree rings to flower buds, from the rising sun to the full moon lighting the night, from the spiral galaxies spinning through time to the atomic structure that supports the continuance of Life!
As we pass thru this time of transformation, we awaken to discover our true Divine nature IS the Great-Full-Ness of Life. We are designed to thrive, and it is our gift to simply *enjoy* the experience of being Alive. What a thrilling ride!
Beloveds … give yourself a deep breath. Breathe deeply again, this time into your heart, and feel the Great-Full-Ness of Life.
Now take a moment to look around, and you will find reflections of Gratitude are everywhere to be found. Open your heart and allow the beauty of All that IS to be a balm upon the soul, and always remember that together we are better and this is an exciting adventure into the new and unknown!
