Forty Days of Light: Day Twenty Meditation

Even though differences are not blatantly observable, the earth's vibration has been stepping it up a notch. We are definitely in a different place than we were even a month ago. The changes can mostly be felt/sensed, although there are times when I am convinced I can hear a difference in the world's hum or see wobbles in what used to be more clearly defined space. The unseen begins to materialize before our eyes. The irony here is that we still want to question it. It's almost as though I am awakening from a dream, but the dream is becoming the reality.

My goal today is to begin to focus more on the dream state in order to turn the dream into reality. The dream state is the place we go on a daily basis to connect to Oneness. (One caution when listening to the following video. Listening with headphones can put you into the dream state! Make sure you are in a comfortable chair at home and able to dedicate time to this one!)

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of Oneness,
Allow our vision to become clearer with each passing day! We long to live in a higher realm of existence where we can be more than we are now. We strive to evolve into closer versions of our Higher Selves as we work in harmony with all of existence.

Forty Days of Light: Day Nineteen Meditation

Today it seems as though the veil I have always had to see through is dissolving. Somehow, things are easier to see. Earlier this morning, I was questioning an emotion I was feeling. I believe feelings/emotions are the Universe's way of trying to make you aware of the more subtle things around you. The feeling, more specifically, was the drop in my stomach which I associate with my fight or flight response. As I questioned it, I asked what I needed to know. I then saw a picture of a city skyline in my mind which sort of reminded me of Nashville because of a building that looked like what is fondly called the Batman building. Overhead, I saw two jet fighters streak by. Strange really--and very random information. Just an awareness. I did question it a little more and heard the words, "Watch the light." Still don't have any idea what it might mean. I'm guess I'm just putting it out there to see if anything comes of it.

I really do feel like vision is clearing in this 3D reality. I am wondering if maybe it will continue to unfog for the next few weeks, culminating in an epiphany of sorts. (Or maybe I'm just hoping?) What I do know for sure is that the energy is changing in some really big and powerful ways. There's a lightness as though the former heaviness has been lifted.

In the vein of expanding consciousness, I meditated to this:

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of light and knowledge,
We ask for Divine Intervention to remove what is left of the veil from before our eyes, that we may more clearly see the perfected world we wish to create. By grasping this vision, may we more clearly understand the part we each play in bringing this vision into reality. Allow us to see the Divine within each one as well as the Divine within ourselves.

Forty Days of Light: Day Eighteen Meditation

My focus this morning is on creation. Our bondage has been broken (although I notice they are still trying to convince us otherwise) and we now are free to create the world in which we want to live. Where there was once pain and suffering, we can now overcome with love and light. We can balance the world out through our own thoughts--our intention! Beauty can truly arise from the ashes!

I chose to listen to the music one one of my very favorite sound healers, Jonathon Goldman, this morning. This particular one reminds me of what I always think of as the music of the angels. (Best to listen to with headphones if you want the full effect of the brain entrainment!)
As you listen to the heavenly sounds, begin to picture the world you want to create!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of life,
We desire to rebalance the earth into one harmonious whole. Align our thoughts in Oneness, that we may begin to understand the perfection that already exists so that this perfection can manifest in our physical plane. As One, we can create the world of our dreams!

Forty Days of Light: Day Seventeen Meditation

And the walls come tumbling down!
My feeling this morning is that something HUGE has broken down! I have felt for years like many things were holding me back from being who I was meant to be. Today there is a feeling of lightness--as if all the barriers that used to overwhelm me are no longer in place. I feel a curious sense of freedom. I feel bigger. It's definitely a new feeling for me, but one I shall be happy to adjust to.

The following music encourages this expansive feeling:

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all expansion,
Assist me in this process of expansion and growth. I am no longer bound by the confines of my present world. I desire to use this newfound freedom to transform into the limitless creation I was designed to be!

Forty Days of Light: Day Sixteen Meditation

This morning, I heard the words "I am love" in my mind and managed to find this:
Listen as long as you want (with stereo earphones to take advantage of the brain synchronization) and tune into this frequency of love. This is the world we were made for. This is the world we are approaching! Still, it takes intention and effort to actually get there!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of love,
Help us to see, hear, touch, taste and be love in everything we do. It is only love that has the power to overcome all the heartache and madness in the world. We desire to be instruments of love so that we may bring about the healing the world so desperately needs!

Forty Days of Light: Day Fifteen Meditation

Because of recent revelations, I am attempting to become more comfortable within this newly expanded self. As I sit in reflection of all I am (and realize how connected I am to the Universe), I allow myself to envision and feel the expansion. I still feel some limits, but it continues to grow. This simple Oneness Blessing makes it easier for me to let my limitations go.
In the stillness, I sense how much I have allowed myself to be boxed up in this lifetime (and many other lifetimes). It is time to allow myself the freedom I have denied myself for so long. It is time to stop judging myself by how others see me and live my life according to how I truly am.

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of expansion,
I ask for help in breaking down my own limitations and barriers that keep me from expressing the perfection that exists within. I am sorry for all those times I have allowed the barriers to hold me back from being who I am--please forgive me. Thank you for the opportunities I have to manifest this being in the world. I love you!

Forty Days of Light: Day Fourteen Meditation

Through the craziness that was Black Friday in America yesterday (No, I did not shop it. I worked it.), my reflection time has brought me some amazing insights. With all the changes in earth energies lately, I have been feeling so disconnected and out-of-touch with Source/God. What I realized yesterday (after reflecting with a fellow lightworker) was that the disconnect was totally an invention of my mind and not the reality!

What does that mean, you ask? Let me explain. A good friend asked me to intuit something in her behalf. As I have felt disconnected lately I wasn't sure if I was quite up to the task. However, this friend is very important to me and I knew I needed to try. As I began to meditate, I immediately understood that what I had interpreted to be disconnect was not disconnect at all! The shifting energies have been creating new space--new dimensionality--and I personally am not used to the changes yet! To put it in more visual terms, I have not yet begun to live fully in my new mansion. I am only occupying a few rooms of it!
We are coming to a time in history where we need to expand outward and explore our new surroundings. Change always makes you feel a bit unbalanced! Allow yourself to get used to this new energy so you can begin to enjoy it!

Focus on your own expansion process as you meditate on this music:

Today's Prayer For Light:
Unlimited Source of life and power,
Lead us through the mansions already prepared for us. We have always known there is more. We ask for courage to explore them and expand in them. We wish to help others in this expansion process as well. Allow us to comfortably transition into the space in which we presently find ourselves.

As we continue to recognize our own innate power, we continue to follow the light--and our bliss. A glorious future is waiting to unfold for us, as long as we have the courage to find it!

Forty Days of Light: Day Thirteen Meditation

Today is a day to begin connecting with things beyond our present reality--time to begin stretching your mind to the possibilities. Allow yourself to do things you have never done before. Explore the Universe--within and without. Visit heaven or a new world. You are only limited by your own thoughts. Allow yourself to dream of what could be!

A new world is not only possible, but it is on its way. You need to look for it, and when you see it explore it. What does it look like? What do you hear? How does it smell? What do you feel? Become so familiar with it that it becomes comfortable!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of Heaven,
We long for a new world, a new way of thinking, a new way of living. Help us expand our understanding of how the world can work and let go of all those preconceived ideas that take us away from this ideal. Expand our minds and hearts so we can enter into a new kingdom--one ripe with possibility and promise!

Forty Days of Light: Day Twelve Meditation

Today is the day for change...a day for miracles. Today is the day to break out of our cocoons and become the beautiful butterflies we were designed to be! Today, our wings may still be curled up and in need of drying. Learning to use wings at all is a process for all those who have spent their lives on the ground!
Today is the day to slough off the old shell. You are no longer that person! That cocoon has become old and increasingly brittle and limiting. You need it no more as you begin the process of creating a new, better life!

Meditate (with headphones) as you ponder this new life--this new freedom to become all you were meant to become! New life awaits!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all power and creation,
Help us see the outer remnants of the shell we have been contained in so we may emerge into a glorious new being! We desire to enable ourselves to be our highest selves, shirking the bonds of limitation which have kept us down for generations. If we are to create a new world, we need to step out of the bondage of the old. We are free!

Forty Days of Light: Day Eleven Meditation

This morning my heart is heavy because I cannot shake thoughts of the genocide currently taking place in the occupied territories of Israel. As I ponder the horrible fate of many Palestinians, I am reminded this problem has extended over many continents and many centuries. Bosnia. Rwanda. The Holocaust. Native Americans.

It begins with the thoughts that we are separate from one another and we are somehow better than those who are different from us. Sometimes these same thoughts progress into control and domination. At some point in time, we are all guilty of having these thoughts.

This brings me to one of the most profound healing tools I have come across in this existence: Ho'oponopono, an ancient Hawaiian form of prayer. In a nutshell, ho'oponopono prayer takes responsibility for the destruction/evil by using these four elements: I'm sorry, forgive me, thank you, and I love you.
Talk about a great way to restore flow and Oneness!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all creation,
I know there have been times when I have been so angry at differences between my fellow humans that I held destructive thoughts and committed destructive acts against them. I am so sorry for acting on this misinformation! Please forgive me for allowing such genocidal thoughts contain and control me. Thank you for the opportunity to work past such ideas and acts and grow as a person. Thank you for the ability to grow in Oneness. I love you!

Forty Days of Light: Day Ten Meditation

We are called to be healers. Healers of the earth. Healers of the water. Healers of the air. Healers of mankind. 
We have spent far too long destroying all that should be giving us life. When we restore life to the Universe, we ourselves are also restored.

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of Oneness,
We are called to open our hearts so we may understand Your desires for our lives. Show us the ways we may heal our world as we heal ourselves. We wish to follow those paths that bring us all closer to wholeness.

Monday, November 19, 2012

Forty Days of Light: Day Nine Meditation

This morning comes with a strong desire for peace in the world--global, local and personal. There is a desire to create and not destroy. We have had more than enough destruction. It is time to ponder all those things we came here to create.

There is a profound freedom in the act of creation. We create for the satisfaction it brings us, but we also create as part of our contribution to this life. Ultimately, creation is the expression of who we are in the world. Now is the time for each one to shine!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all existence,
We ask your help in understanding our gifts and talents so we may use them to create a better world. We desire to BE--to manifest everything we are--thoughts, emotions, ideas, energy. We understand it is now time to build something in the world. Please open those doors which will enable us to express our highest selves and enable others to fully manifest their higher selves.

Forty Days of Light: Day Eight Meditation

Today as I continue my journey toward connecting to Mother Earth, I am drawn to the more feminine aspects of God--the Divine Feminine.
What I refer to is those attributes typically ascribed to women--nurturing, caring, providing comfort and protection, etc. In our world today, we are largely taught to ignore our more feminine traits and develop the more masculine ones of competition and fighting--which is supposedly the natural order of things. Because this masculine side has been emphasized, our world is terribly out of balance. We pay a heavy price in terms of loss of resources, wealth and overall well-being (and then we wonder why things are so bad!).

It is no longer about competition and fighting! It is not possible to bring about a change to these world problems through more fighting! As Martin Luther King, Jr. stated very profoundly:
 Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. 
It is time to re-balance earth by emphasizing the Divine Feminine! Instead of fighting each other and competing for resources, it is time to nurture one another! Feed yourself, but also feed your neighbor! Shelter the homeless! Nurse the sick! Take care of the needs you see within your own communities! When we work to build instead of destroy, Mother Earth does not need to spend time healing herself but can instead work to provide for us all!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all that gives life,
We ask you to make us aware of our feminine gifts--our caring, our nurturing, our healing--so we may be able to use them to heal our planet. Show us the needs around us which we can take care of. Help us see the resources we can use to take care of those needs. We desire to be instruments of healing in the world.

Forty Days of Light: Day Seven Meditation

This morning seems pregnant with possibility! Time to use the energies available to us to create our ideal world! Problems like greed and war and poverty and starvation no longer exist. In this ideal world, everyone is doing work they enjoy (so it is not work!). Everyone has healthy food to eat and warm clothing to wear and a nice place to live. No one is dependent on anyone else, although in such a society we are all interdependent on each other because we all have our piece of the puzzle to play. It is a society where everyone is connected to their hearts, which in turn connect us to Oneness.

Jesus in his teachings likened people to various parts of the body. We all do different things--play different roles--but the body is just not quite complete if it is missing an eye, or a hand, or a leg or a lung. It is this singleness of purpose that makes us all fit together into one harmonic whole.

The meditation piece I chose to listen to this morning makes we think of the magic that is still present and available in the world--as long as we take the time to look for it. It is the magic of creation, the power of which each and every one of us possess.
Sit back, close your eyes and allow the magic to envelop you!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all creativity,
We ask for your Divine assistance to inspire as to a new way of thinking, a new way of life. We desire to rise above our present challenges by taking new paths, thinking new thoughts and acting in new ways. We know we were not meant for a life of drudgery and gloom but to use our gifts and talents to the best of our abilities for the benefit of all. We can envision a world we wish to live in and take the actions necessary to bring it to fruition.

Forty Days of Light: Day Six Meditation

This morning, I hear the cries of Mother Earth herself, calling for closer connection. She needs people to be more closely aligned with her so she can heal. We have spent far too long destroying this great Mother when all she wants to do is support us with the bounty only she can provide. She is calling us to alignment, to wholeness, to balance.
I have always been intrigued by the similarities between Gaelic and Native American music. It is my belief they are similar (even though they come from very different parts of the world) because they are both inspired by a connection to Mother Earth herself. When you live close to nature, you begin to tune into that earth frequency. When it comes right down to it, we are all physically connected by the earth on which we live.

This song by the group Clannad is exactly the sort of earth-inspired music I am talking about:

Today's Prayer For Light:
Great Source of Life and Connection,
We ask you to dissolve the barriers we have erected between ourselves and Mother Earth, that we may begin to fully understand the ways we can restore her and help bring her back into balance. We understand it is her desire to give us an abundance of all that we need. We wish to bless her, just as she wishes to bless us.  Help us restore the cycle of giving and receiving we were intended to be a part of.

Forty Days of Light: Day Five Meditation

This morning, I find myself looking for change. As I believe everything can be measured as energy--as a frequency--I began to look for sounds to change frequency and came up with this video. Listen to this several times (again with headphones) and allow yourself to resonate with change. After all, change is coming. Make it as easy on yourself as possible by allowing your physical body to resonate with this frequency.
It is undo your judgmental ways of allow things to exist as they are with all their light and accept what is. That doesn't mean things can't change. However, real change only comes from that place of acceptance. Everything that exists in your world exists for a reason! You were meant to understand them. Whatever learning you are meant to discover will continue until you "get it"! This is why those things we consider problems continue to follow us, even when the people and places change! Allow yourself to expand your thought processes and grow!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all change and growth,
Help us release all our preconceived judgments so that our awareness of all that is expands exponentially. We desire to accept what is present in our lives and learn from it so we can grow in our understandings. We seek to connect to our Higher Selves and overcome the duality taught to us in the world as we work toward the goal of becoming One. We know change does not have to be a scary or dreadful process. We ask that this change process become as smooth as possible and that our minds are open to those easier transitional paths--those paths of least resistance.

Forty Days of Light: Day Four Meditation

We live in and understand a world of duality--a place where everything is judged and everything is separate. The thing is, duality is not our natural state. Originally, we come from a place of Oneness, where everything exists and nothing is judged. Oneness is a difficult concept to understand while we are in the midst of separateness.
One word stands out in my mind today: allow. To me, the concept involves acknowledging everything we are--both "good" and "bad"--and allowing it to exist without judgment. It also involves acknowledging everything else in the world--also the "good" and the "bad"--and allowing it to exist without judgment as well. In this state of nonjudgment, we find no resistance. Everything is allowed to float to us and away from us with no restrictions. This is a true state of flow, where everything works together in harmony. In this state there are no longer barriers between us. We are no longer separate.

Listen to this video (preferably with headphones on). It will take you to a place where we are in total harmony with Mother Earth, as the Schumann Resonance is the very frequency of the earth herself. As you become One with Gaia, allow yourself to nurture her and be nurtured by her in a state of allowing.

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all Oneness,
Guide us to all those places where we judge. Help us let go of all those thoughts and allow the Divinity in all things to shine through so that we may be in a total state of allowing--a total state of flow. There is great power and freedom that comes to us within this state of allowing. No prison can contain us! We are not separate, and nothing can keep us from Oneness. We come in appreciation of all that IS and allow it to come and go in freedom!

Forty Days of Light: Day Three Meditation

Today's journey leads me in a more primal direction--to that deep-seated inner knowledge that functions without reasoning or even language. Some might call it the subconscious. Others might know it as the Holy Spirit or God within. Whatever the name, it is that place where our souls truly connect to the Divine. More often than not, it is our worldly knowledge--our reasoning--that gets in the way of connecting to Universal Source. At our core, we "know" how to connect.

The very unique music I meditated on today connects to that place of subconscious. For me, it brought up images of twirling and dancing, the movements of which seemed to imitate the sacred geometry of the nautilus. There is a sense of inner longing--as if something deep inside longs to connect--as well as a sense that the Universe longs for this same connection. In reality, there is no separation from the Oneness. This music brings us back to understanding who we truly are.

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of Connection,
We long this day to break down the barriers that would have us believe we are separate from you. Help us go beyond the limitations of our minds that we may connect in ways more powerful than any we have connected to so far in this lifetime. Help us connect to that primal inner child who can express all that we cannot. May we continue on our journey to Oneness and heal all that which separates us from one another.

Forty Days of Light: Day Two Meditation

As I sit and listen to the world around me, I hear the voices of all those who cry out in their oppression. I am reminded of some of the black spirituals that emerged from the old South, lamenting the slavery but believing that a better life will come eventually. Poor Wayfaring Stranger comes to mind as I continue to listen to the cries.
While there are many forms of slavery, many forms of bondage, the particular form my slavery has taken in this life is money and debt. Often we work our fingers to the bone and have nothing to show for it at the end of the day because of standards set by those who would rule. It is time to realize the standards we live by are arbitrary--set by those who would steal our personal power from us. It is time to break free from those rules and set news ones that will allow everyone to take back their own power and be able to use the gifts and talents they possess to benefit the world! It is time to focus on freedom!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of love and light and power,
Open our eyes, and hearts, and minds to all those traps we allow to imprison us. Help us ask new questions, that we may be open to new understandings and new possibilities that will enable us to break free of all those things that oppress us. Help us to be willing to act on this new information in ways that will not only free ourselves, but others imprisoned as well. We desire to use our gifts and talents in ways that benefit the One. Grant us the opportunity to live in freedom and the integrity to live in harmony with all.

Forty Days of Light: Day One Meditation

As music has the power to quickly transform my reality, I spent some time listening to a very powerful rendition of the Lord's Prayer, sung in Aramaic (which is the language Jesus actually spoke when he lived on the earth):
In my mind's eye, I see a picture of a little boy, perhaps seven or eight, running through dusty streets in an ancient city, following everywhere the teacher Jesus went. The boy wants nothing more than to stay physically close to the master, sensing and absorbing the presence and energy of this powerful leader. The boy doesn't really understand everything the teacher is saying. He just feels the energy of the healer--unlimited power, unhindered and free flowing, great love, and joy, and peace, able to absorb all those energies we think of as negative and transform them in Oneness. It is a very wonderful place to be, and the boy takes full advantage of it, learning what he can and trying to hold on to that connection. Children often do what adults cannot--understand and enjoy the energies of those they come into contact with. Adults are much more guarded and reserved. Become as a little child, and allow yourself to open up to all those experiences life has to offer you for your growth.

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of all creation,
Keep my heart open, that I may allow all those people, and experiences, and things in my life guide me to the path of highest potential. Help me remember to not be afraid, for I know that everything is designed to benefit me in my quest for understanding. Thank you for all these opportunities for light and truth. I open myself as a little child, so this light continues to flow to me and back out again in one continuous cycle of growth.

Preparing For December 21st, 2012

For months, I have pondered the meaning of December 21st, 2012 (the "end" of the Mayan calendar). My understanding of what that date means in astronomical terms is that it the position of the winter solstice changes very slightly every year, and every 26,000 years it makes a 360 degree revolution around the sky. The thoughts are that something about this realignment creates changes in the energetic frequencies earth receives. My personal thoughts regarding these new frequencies involve change in human consciousness.  

All year I have watched for breakthroughs in consciousness with no telltale signs that any shift has occurred (although I have seen pockets of light/understanding in various places all over the world). Most days it seems we are just plodding along with no real breakthroughs, and I begin to lose hope that significant change will occur. Still, I know that most transitions are a slow process and not always noticed except in hindsight.

What comes to me when I ponder the date as I consciously try to connect with Source is really quite simple. I believe December 21st, 2012 is the awakening point for human consciousness. As more and more people "wake up" to all those ways the world has gone wildly out of balance, a shift is taking place. At some point, there will be a critical mass of people who recognize this imbalance. When this critical mass is reached (and it does not have to be half the population of the world), everyone will know about the imbalance.

I found this Youtube video posted on a Facebook group page I follow. It is a lecture given by a Mayan man talking about what he believes will occur when the December 21st, 2012 date arrives. As the earth realigns, the physical energies/frequencies of the earth will shift into a very powerful opening for awakening mass consciousness. He discusses what this means, what he believes will happen and what they are doing to try to capture some of this energy so that this consciousness is retained and acted upon. He talks a bit about science and sacred geometry. While I don't necessarily believe everything he says, parts of his talk resonated with me, so I post it here for your information.
I don't know for sure what is going to happen. I don't know that December 21st, 2012 is going to be a day we will be able to experience and say, "I see the changes!" What I do believe is that we all have the opportunity to awaken from the slumber we have been in for thousands of years--that we can raise our awareness enough we are catapulted into action and rebalance our world for the benefit of all.

December 21st, 2012 is now slightly over a month away. Make a commitment to dedicate time every day to strengthening your relationship to Source/God/Oneness. That way, your opportunity for understanding will increase because you are making the conscious decision to connect. Tomorrow (November 11th, 2012) begins my personal journey toward Oneness--Forty Days of Light! Join me!

Forty Days Of Light: An Invitation

For the past several years, I have delved into some of the mysteries of quantum physics, frequencies and energies that all constructs in our worlds are made from. Part of my quest has involved trying to become more sensitive to those energies around me--to connect to and understand them on a more personal level. As my awareness grows, I become more and more convinced there is intelligence in all things. I have been amazed and blessed by all those things that wish to impart their particular perspectives with me.

Lately, I have not focused on my connection to the Universe as much as I might have, and it's crunch time. The day is rapidly approaching (December 21st, 20120 to be exact) that signals the end of the old world age and the beginning of the new. I don't feel particularly ready to meet it.

That being said, I have decided to make a personal commitment to myself. Beginning on the 11th of November, 2012, I am going to dedicate time every day toward connecting to the Universe. For forty days, ending on December 20th, 2012, it will be my intention to not only absorb the light but to become the light. My goal is to understand where my gifts and talents fit into the Oneness and how I personally can manifest my highest self in the world. I plan to blog daily during this time about my discoveries. Note that while these discoveries will be personal to me, they will hopefully also connect in some way to the greater whole.

Consider this your invitation. If it is your desire to end this old world age on a positive note, set the intention to create time to connect to the Universe and your higher self every day from November 11th through December 20th. Connect to the light so you may become the light! A new beginning is just around the corner!

Namaste, my friends!

The Real Value of Gold

I was once again listening to the Keiser Report (Max Keiser on RT News), where Max, in his extremely entertaining way, was discussing how various countries are repatriating their gold in some sort of showdown. The idea is that countries are scrambling for gold now that it looks like the system of fiat currencies (creating money out of thin air instead of backing it with something tangible like gold) is swiftly coming to an end. Sounds like they are all laying claim to gold that is not necessarily theirs (and knowing that the banksters are the crooks they are it is in all likelihood true!) and using every trick and deception they can to make it happen. It's amazing to me all the drama being played out on the world stage right now!

My little mind thinks about things differently. My question surrounding gold is this: what is the real value of gold? Gold is a rare element. It's pretty. It makes beautiful jewelry (even though you usually have to mix it with other metals if you want it to last as jewelry because of its softness). You can trade it as a form of money. These are the physical realities of gold. In and of itself, gold cannot be used as food, as clothing, as shelter, as energy. It can only be used to purchase those items. Basically, gold itself is a form of currency. We value gold because we have been taught to believe we need some sort of currency to live on!

In many prior civilizations, people needed no currency. Mother Earth provided the resources--food, clothing, shelter, etc. They worked together and people learned they could do work they enjoyed--whether it was farming or hunting or organizing work crews to construct building--and trade this work for what they needed.   They did not have a need to own the land. Many of them considered themselves caretakers of the land! Currency is a concept that came much later--a scheme to turn certain people into owners and other people into slaves!

What is my point in all this?  My point is that you can be sitting on the world's biggest pile of gold, but if no one is willing to trade it for the grain they have produced, or the cloth they have manufactured, or the energy you need to run your factory, you are pretty much screwed! Gold's value comes from the belief that it is valuable!

What is the real value of gold? Nothing, unless you believe in the idea we need currency to survive. When we can get over the concept of working to earn money/currency instead of contributing the gifts and talents you personally have to the world, collecting gold will be pointless (unless you want it to make beautiful jewelry). We will truly be free to create the abundant, prosperous lives we were intended to live.

The Number of Truth Seekers Grows Daily!

For the past several years, I have been on a quest--a quest to seek out truth no matter how much it shakes up my core beliefs. During that time, I have forced myself to allow my limited understandings to fall and have had to rebuild myself once again from the foundation up. It has not been an easy journey. Downright uncomfortable, in fact. However, the rockiness of the road has allowed me to be much more thankful for all I do have!

I am not the only one! While I have made some amazing new friends along this quest for truth, I've have found myself becoming unsettled by those who continue to hold the same beliefs I used to. What's even more unsettling is the fact that places I viewed as a refuge from my worn out beliefs are now seemingly inundated by those who still hold the same worn out beliefs! Again, no comfort in the journey as I deal with the emotional energy that comes up every time I deal with those sorts of people. (The irony here is, I am convinced my emotions are what tell me I need to do some more work on myself! Alas! The job is never quite done!)

While I continue to feel uncomfortable, there is one bright spot that appeared just today! It dawned on me those same people who hold the old dualistic beliefs that have become so abhorrent to me are there for purposes other than to help me personally evolve. Whether they know it or not, those people are truth seekers!

They come to places where the energy is different from what they know. Even though they may not rationally agree with the majority of people in the new group, something draws them to this new energy! They may not even be conscious of it--just conscious that they have a desire for new information, and so they stay in this place that may make them uncomfortable as well!

This is my indication that the number of truth seekers does indeed grow daily! It may be uncomfortable. It may be downright scary! Know that we as a planet are quickly reaching the turning point! Be willing to reach out to all those who are on their own journey of understanding. The more willing we are to assist in this process, the more quickly the turning point will be reached!
