      As you have probably noticed, there is a lot of chaos in the collective consciousness right now.  No matter where you live on the planet, there is worry and concern and a shift away from the way we are accustomed for reality to manifest.  Because we are a part of the human collective consciousness we feel the inner distress of the collective.  If we follow the news reports it is even easier to have our own latent fears for survival reactivated.  Additionally, we are concerned not only for the health and safety of ourselves and our loved ones, we are worried about the planet and Her well-being. If we allow ourselves to get caught-up in external reality we experience worry and stress.  


What is your reality?  I would like to make a radical suggestion.  Look around at your reality.  What do you see?  What do you hear?  What do you feel?  You may hear the news, or see the news or read the news but are the events that are in the news actually a part of your reality?  Or are they ideas and images about a version of reality that you personally are not currently experiencing?  Yes, we have compassion and concern for what is happening in our world – of course!  However, I suggest that if we choose to stay with our actually experience of our moment to moment reality – of what we actually see, feel, taste, hear, touch – we can have peace in our hearts.  All we ultimately have is our experience.


If we are on a spiritual journey of awakening (why else are we here?) then staying with our inner experience and inquiring into it is the path to discovering the truth of who we are.  If we allow external events to take us away from ourselves we lose touch with who we are.  Walking this Earth, knowing our real identity as True Nature, as divine consciousness manifested in form, is the path to inner peace regardless of what is happening in the world.  It is also our ultimate contribution to the collective consciousness.

                Last month we talked about the possibility that many of us originally came from more spiritually evolved civilizations on other planets or in other dimensions of reality.  Many of us have access to memories of our “home”.  We know that the way reality manifests on this planet is not the only way to live.  Many of us long to “go home”.  At the same time, many of us feel that we are here for a reason.  We feel like we came to help the evolution of consciousness on Earth.  (You can stop reading right now if this does not resonate with you!)  Yet, we often do not know how to contribute.  Perhaps we do not trust our gifts.  Perhaps there are subconscious memories of a past life in which we tried to help and were punished or killed for our attempts.  This leaves an imprint of fear in our subconscious and we may hesitate to try again to bring forward our gifts and our knowledge.


                I would like to suggest another reason why we hold ourselves back:  We put ourselves on the wheel of karma.  It is possible that when we first incarnated on Earth, the consciousness of the human collective was so different from what we knew, that we did not know how to relate our knowledge to people in a way that they could understand.  So we decided to “walk in another’s moccasins”.  We gave ourselves a lifetime that was totally against our innate integrity.  We were “bad”.   We put ourselves on the wheel of karma.  That gave us many subsequent human lifetimes in which we could learn what it is like to be a human being.  We did this so that we could learn how to communicate with people in a way that they could hear.  We learned what it is like to have emotions, desires, and fears.


                The difficulty is that in order to put ourselves on the wheel, we were bad.  We judged ourselves for being bad.  I suggest that there is an unconscious feeling that we do not deserve to bring forward our love and our light because we feel that deep down, we are bad.  Our super-ego, or inner critic, is happy to remind us daily that we are bad or wrong or not enough.  We may even have chosen parents who reinforced the buried feeling that there was something wrong with us.  Hence we doubt ourselves and hide our gifts.


                Each of us has much to share.  Our planet needs our gifts now.  It is time to step off the wheel and trust our inner knowing.  It is time to bring the truth of who we are into our world -- into your world.





                We will be working on this in our April retreat.

Dear Fellow Travelers,                                                                                     November, 2016


Over the years many people have asked me to write an autobiographical account of my personal spiritual journey.  Parts of my journey do appear in some of my books but I have never felt pulled to write an autobiography.  Those of you who know me may remember that my awakening process began when I started remembering my past lives.  When I experienced the impact that working through the memories of a previous incarnation had on my life, I found a way to share what I had discovered by becoming a past-life therapist.  Eventually, working with past-lives became the focus of the seminars I began to offer.  Aside from releasing impressions on the soul from the past that are not helpful in the present, experiencing a previous incarnation helps to loosen the hold of our current identity.  After all, if who you are includes all these other incarnations, then you are clearly more than you take yourself to be in this incarnation.  Past life work expanded my own experience of who I am. 


 Next came clearings and that work also appeared in the seminars.  When I started channeling I was very excited about sharing that experience and I led trainings to teach others to channel.  It is the same as when you read a book or see a movie that touches you in a deep way you naturally want to share it with others.  It was through channeling that I realized that there is more than one reality and that we can learn and be guided by Beings from other dimensions.    Although I have relied on this guidance for years, it was somewhat unexpected to have the palpable energy of Beings from other dimensions so clearly present in the last two European retreats I have led in Germany.  Their Presence impacted us all.


Each stage of my own unfolding has informed my and each time I have sought to share what I learned and experienced in the groups that I led.  I have also attempted to share what I have learned in the books that I have written.  I am grateful that those books have been so well received.  A book can help give our mind a way to hold our experience.  However, it is the experience itself that has the potential to shift our consciousness.


As you may have noticed, there is a shift in consciousness happening in the human collective.  Predictably there is also major reactivity to the shift.  It is as if the collective human ego is raising its head in defiance of the expansion in consciousness that many of us are experiencing.  (The name “Trump” comes to mind)


My personal experience of this expansion in consciousness includes opening to the Totality of Being and knowing my “self” as an expression of that totality.  My challenge for next April’s European retreat is to find a way to share that experience with the circle so that each of us knows, beyond a doubt, that who we ultimately are is All There Is.
