 We have practice with changing our identities.  The child ballerina can move into the aspiring nurse, into the inspiring teacher, into the mother, into the grandmother world traveler, and into the wise crone.  A young soccer player puts away his shin guards, becomes the editor of the school newspaper, the inventor, a father, a global activist, and a wise mentor (either gender in any role).  We find comfort and stability in our identities.  What has been your identity journey?  Where are you now in who you tell yourself you are?  Who does the world tell you to be?

I recently entered the Transformational Author Contest, stimulating an acknowledgment within myself that I accept the identity of being an author, and one who has a message to share.  It was not automatic.  I had to vanquish all the Ego gremlins that said I was not worthy, not good enough, not experienced enough—you know the battle.  What won the battle for me was

1.       I took time to quiet my mind (I tell it to be cradled in Universal Mind and breathe in six directions—up, down, front, back, sides)
2.        Focus in my heart (I use HeartMath)
3.       Find my deepest knowing (I visualize my Core Column of Light just in front of and attached to my spine, extending into the earth’s center and up to Source)

Then I was clear that sharing words that teach or inspire is part of who I am.    In the old perspective that would be enough.  But there is a difference in these times.

Have you noticed that you sometimes feel blind-sided by what is happening in your life and those close to you?  Are you feeling more confusion and frustration when old methods of organizing and decision-making aren’t working?  My lists used to insure that I would get everything important done—now they often aren’t worth the scrap paper they’re written on.  Other organizing systems fall short as well.   

 It is accepted by many of our world’s finest minds that we are in a time of unparalleled change—of the very earth we live on and in all our society’s systems.  Many concerned with human consciousness and the energetic matrix surrounding us agree that the foundation we have used to stabilize us and provide direction for our lives is shifting so much that we feel lost.  Old methods of centering and “getting back to ourselves” don’t do the job anymore.  Who are we now?

Anodea Judith, in her book, Waking the Global Heart:  Humanity's Rite of Passage from the Love of Power to the Power of Love, writes that initiations of change.."were designed to break down the smaller ego-self in order to embrace a larger web of life.  From this wider perspective, one's own life can then take on deeper meaning and purpose, one that is in alignment--and therefore in service-- to the greater whole.''  Only when I expand my identity into the multidimensional Universe, and find the unlabeled Being at my center do I move forward with calm.  Only when my basic identity is one who serves the wider evolution of humanity, the planet and the Cosmos do I trust my individual well-being and know what action to take in the moment.  We can help one another realize and practice this change, and ask not only who I really am, but who am I expecting you to be—and then let go and feel who you really are.

I can thank a friend for stimulating discomfort intense enough for me to take the time and create the intent to heal and find my deeper Self again.  Sometimes my deepest and most cherished, but outmoded, beliefs require not-so-gentle nudges from Source in the form of important people in my life.  Even though I may be conscious of that as it is happening, it takes some healing and resolution before I can really feel gratitude.  That gratitude is food for my inner independence.  Some of the realizations that I found from “coming to my knees” in earnest desire for change follow:         

I allow my evolution.  I release pushing, seeking, efforting, trying, attached intending, expectations, and impatience.  I allow myself to change the interaction with my Ego and therefore with others.  I slow down breath, thought, energy flow, and allow myself to move into the deep knowing space in my center that holds joy, humility, compassion for myself, others and the planet, and the detachment from judgment about what I experience.  I open my heart to myself and to all that is, of which I am an inseparable part.   I know these words may seem like parroting of ancient and current teachings, but they are coming from my heart and my inner experience.  That is what Independence Day is to me now:  to be independent of beliefs, feelings, expectations that originate outside of myself in the media, in decades of acculturation, from honored mentors and from life experiences (past and present).  I know the old stories will claim my attention again, but every time I allow this experience of inner freedom, I make neuronal, cellular and even DNA paths for lasting change of my response to life.  As Barbara Marx Hubbard would say, I more fully incarnate my Universal Self, my original vibration of Being, as active in my human experience.  Happy Independence Day!

The 4 P's of New Motherhood: Patience, Presence, Possibilities, & Pause

Close friends of mine just had a baby—bringing forth an amazing new Being on this planet.  This picture of Everly captures the joy of beginning the journey of life on Earth.  Those of us who are aware of the energetic changes since 12/21-23/12, and who are working toward a new society of Oneness and abundance for all are both the infant new humanity, and the mother of that infant.  It’s been over six months since Birth2012, and we are now at the stage where a mother’s hormones are beginning to come back into balance, and the feelings of one’s world being turned upside down are settling into acceptance.  The analogy offers some suggestions for how best to navigate this time in our collective and personal lives.
PATIENCE:  There is a Rune (Jera/Harvest) about which Ralph Blum says, “There is no way to push the river; equally you cannot hasten the harvest.  Be mindful that patience is essential for the recognition of your own process, which in its season leads to the harvest of the self.”  There is another saying I have on my wall:  Patience in the present, Faith in the future, Joy in the doing.  We are embodying the new energies that are now available and restructuring our whole human being.  In transformation the energy always comes first, then a shift in consciousness/belief, and then shifts in the outer world.  Without patience we cannot hold the trust necessary to create changes we desire.  
PRESENCE:    A new parent can experience an absorption and connection with their child beyond any they have experienced before.  They are totally present with this new Being, and all other concerns or projects or thoughts are nonexistent for those moments.  The guidance that the infant receives and the response to its needs set the template for that Being’s life. We are now setting the template for the future of humanity.  One of the greatest factors that damages a child of an alcoholic or drug addicted mother is the lack of emotional presence.  The child feels abandoned (our greatest fear) even when the parent is physically present, and the brain neurons that produce attachment and bonding are not developed.  In the extreme this creates what is labeled Reactive Attachment Disorder.  Our newly developing Universal Selves need as much of our focused attention as we can muster.  Constantly asking ourselves what we really need, what message our life experience is giving us now, and what attitudes to hold that would sustain and nurture our new Being will make the evolutionary journey much gentler, and increase the unfolding of our possibilities.
POSSIBILITIES:  A new infant brings such joy, and a part of that is because we are opened to touching in to the realm of unlimited possibility.  We dream of all that could be in the future for this child and therefore in our lives as well.  The last Rune (Odin/The Unknowable) asks, “For how can you exercise control over what is not yet in form?  And what is coming to be can never arise from the known.”  Envision beyond what has been present.  Understand that in each moment all possibilities are present; that whatever your mind believes limits the possibilities unless your mind moves into knowing that it does not know.  We are now creating from the purest energy of our Being if we can move beyond the fear of the unknown, pause and open to all possibilities.
PAUSE:  A new parent can be exhausted.  Rest and recharging are essential whenever there is a moment free of the demands of the dependent child.  Thomas Huebl (German mystic) calls it the Competency of Silence and sees it as one of the two keys to authentic awakening and evolution.  A practice(s) that allows you to enter your stillpoint (the place beyond mental knowing into universal knowing), your Essence, and connect with Source and the life force is imperative to bring the “juice” and nurturing necessary for the journey toward becoming our transformed, transmuted, possible Universal Self.
