The Shadow Knows…
By Catherine Richardson, Ph. D.
You’ve been meditating daily. You’ve been going to yoga five times a week. You repeat mantras in the shower while opening your chakras through visualization. You systematically pray for peace, love, compassion, and a healthy planet. You follow and “like” the posts of every New Age author on FaceBook. You haven’t eaten meat in months. You even quit watching football so as not to expose yourself to the energy of violence. You’re nice to people, and they’re nice to you in return. You’ve started to feeling as if you really are living in that post-2012 ascension energies you read about in The Magic of Being.
So what just happened? A driver ran a stop sign and nearly hit you as you were bicycling to aromatherapy class. Instead of apologizing, the driver yelled something unkind about the size of your buttocks and gave you the finger as she drove away. Shaking from anger and adrenaline, you responded in kind—complete with your own one-fingered salute and some NC-17 phrases you didn’t even realize you knew. And before you realized it, you were suddenly fantasizing about firing a bazooka into the rear window of her car.
You have never acted quite like this in your entire life. In fact, you consider yourself way too evolved to even be capable of such thoughts and behavior. You ride home confused, ashamed, and feeling like a failure.
Renowned Swiss psychiatrist and metaphysical philosopher Carl Jung would likely say that your shadow just asserted itself. According to Jung, the shadow represents the aspects of the Self that are outside your conscious awareness, as well those parts that don’t fit into who you believe you are or who you want to be. The shadow is the unacceptable and primitive side of your personality. And when your conception of Self is…say…extremely restrictive (i.e. “I always act from a place of compassion and love, rather than fear and judgment.”), more and more of who you are becomes part of the shadow because it is repressed, rejected, or denied.
Most people have an ideal of what a spiritual person should be; and it does not involve cursing, the use of the middle finger as an insult, or visualizing second-degree murder. Most of us think of spiritually evolved people as gentle, kind, compassionate, and wise. They are always composed. They are never depressed, angry, or anxious. They think only positive thoughts and say only thoughtful and positive things. The primary emotion they feel is love, which is evidenced by their perpetual benevolent smiles. Most of us have been taught to regard Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Mohammad, or other seminal religious figures in this way. For many of us on a serious spiritual path, these luminaries are our role models.
Many religions teach that merely having certain thoughts is sinful. Likewise, some prominent New Age teachers instruct us to focus only on the positive in thought, word, and deed; according to the law of attraction, this practice will bring more good things into our lives. Conversely, focusing on the negative may bring unhappiness, illness, or financial struggles.
Nonetheless, according to Jung, the repressed shadow can and eventually will break through in disturbing and often shocking ways, the least of which being an unexpected loss of temper with a reckless motorist. Theologian and mystic Michael Clark, Ph.D., writes that a repressed shadow may account for some Catholic nuns’ cruel treatment of school children, as well as the high incidence of pedophilia among Catholic priests and monks. These particular professions carry a very narrow definition of what is acceptable in both thought and behavior. With no healthy outlet, the shadow lurks beneath the surface, slowly building up a head of steam. It eventually seeps or bursts through the psyche in distorted and appalling ways.
The shadow can also lead to the unconscious projection of your unacceptable or repressed aspects onto other people. This is commonly referred to as scapegoating. Jung believed that such projections, taken to their extremes, could be dangerous. Perhaps the starkest example of the shadow run riot is seen in the terrifying figure of Adolf Hitler. According to Jung, the supposed evils Hitler saw in the Jewish people were simply projections of his own shadow qualities and impulses. Overwhelming evidence now indicates that Hitler himself was Jewish, lending even more credence to Jung’s theory. And, according to Jung, Hitler was completely unaware of the pervasive hold his shadow had on him.
Jung believed that whenever self-righteousness, intolerance, and hate are combined, that the hater is projecting his or her shadow on the hated. With the escalating global clash between Islamic extremists and Western society, the lessons of the shadow merit special attention. When one group completely demonizes another, the hope for mutual understanding, compassion, and compromise perishes.
If the shadow can be this volatile, how can we avoid these perils? First of all, while the great spiritual masters may come across as detached from their impulses and emotions, none of them preached that we must detach ourselves from life itself. For example, while Buddha did spend much of his life meditating and denying himself worldly pleasures, he ultimately emerged from these years of deprivation to teach us to engage in life fully. His philosophy was virtually the opposite of detachment; he taught that we should be mindful of our thoughts and actions.
Buddha’s mindfulness is quite different from attempting to banish certain thoughts and impulses. Mindfulness involves complete and total awareness of the whole mind and body in the present moment—paying close attention to our thoughts and impulses—without judgment. It’s not about control, but rather about openness and honesty with oneself. This is simply not possible if we refuse to acknowledge much of who we are. Denying or rejecting whatever you perceive as negative, unspiritual, or profane within yourself makes mindfulness impossible. Often what really motivates and makes you tick is being jammed back into the unconscious. How is personal and spiritual evolution possible in this state?
Jung’s answer is not unlike Buddha’s. Jung prescribed integrating the shadow into a more fully-developed Self. He recommended fostering a more constructive and conscious relationship with the shadow by bringing it out into the light—being willing to examine, without judgment, what makes you tick. Acceptance and even appreciation of the whole Self is a crucial step in this process. Likewise, letting your shadow out in more conscious, healthy ways can also be helpful. For example, direct your aggressive impulses into playing sports (even football!) or exercise; or release your more troubling thoughts and feelings through art, music, or creative writing. These are all ways to get more in touch with your shadow, and eventually integrate it into your personality.
Many of the modern mystics who teach about the law of attraction also acknowledge the need to accept and integrate all parts of the Self. Neale Donald Walsch, author of the best-selling series Conversations with God, writes: “I have now come to understand the extraordinary importance of leading an integral life. That is, of allowing myself to notice, then to blend, all the aspects of who I am—those that I and others called ‘positive’ and those that I and others have called ‘negative’—into a grander Whole.”
Likewise, Deepak Chopra writes: ”The path to enlightenment includes not only the search for the divine but also the total acceptance of the shadow self.”
Oftentimes, troubles with the shadow begin with having an overly-strict ideal of who you should be, and how you should think and behave. While it is certainly laudable to have spiritual aspirations and a strong system of values, cut yourself some slack! Allow yourself to be human. Be flexible and allow your energies to flow. Even your role most cherished role models had some rough patches. For example, many of us like to contemplate fondly upon the compassionate Jesus who forgave his enemies and healed folks from all walks of life; but according to the Scriptures, Jesus was at times overcome by what we think of as the more negative emotions. He wept at the death of Lazarus; and he is depicted as angrily throwing the money-changers out of the temple while knocking over their tables and chairs. Scripture even describes him as “making a whip of cords” to assist in this endeavor. The guy sounds pretty mad to me.
As in the case of Jesus, getting mad is not always a bad thing. In fact, the shadow houses our primitive survival instincts, which can be helpful in a very direct way in moments of real, physical danger. Anger and fear can trigger the release of adrenaline and other hormones, which in turn may help us protect ourselves and our loved ones in emergencies.
All of these suggestions are echoed in much of the spiritual guidance being shared in the 21st-century. Within the articles of The Magic of Being are numerous channeled messages emphasizing unity and acceptance of Self and others over dualistic concepts such as “good versus evil”. My most recent channeled message in The Magic of Being states: “We ask you to fully accept and embrace all parts of yourself, including what you perceive as bad or negative—for the God frequency means wholeness and unity both with the outer Universe and within yourself.”
Please remember, the spiritual journey is also a journey of self-discovery, and it continues throughout your lifetime. Exploring and integrating your shadow can be a wonderful catalyst for understanding yourself and others on many levels. Be willing to open up to all of the beauty and majesty that is You, and you just might recognize the God within!

Peggy Black and the 'team'
We are here observing your reactions to the fast moving energies and frequencies you are experiencing. We know that you are feeling the acceleration. These are powerful times to be in physical form, alive and witnessing this shift. We also acknowledge that these unfolding events are challenging. Let us assure you that you are up to the job of anchoring and stabilizing this rise in consciousness. Remember that every moment is ripe with potential.
We want to address the galactic waves that are bathing humanity. Each individual as well as the collective is influenced by what might be called galactic weather or space weather. These waves and frequencies not only influence but truly prompt the actions of humanity.
More and more of your scientists are bringing clarity to this phenomenon, recognizing that the consciousness of individuals and the collective responds to the prompting of solar flares and full moons as well as coronal mass ejections from your sun.
It is known that during full moons there is an increase in violence. The gravitational pull of the moon affects your oceans and since humans are at least 75% water, they too are affected and influenced by the moon. Governments around the world are aware of the power of solar flares and how that energy can, and often does, interrupt your electronic readings, the communications of aircraft and the many satellites circling your earth.
Coronal mass ejections are magnetic explosions of energy in the form of electrons and photons of light. When these coronal mass ejections occur, many individuals feel a sense of security, serenity and well-being, just as when there is a cosmic storm, unrest and disturbances are felt by all.
We want you to begin to be aware of just how you are responding to these magnetic energies and photons of light packets that are being offered from the galaxy. Study what is happening in space because you are truly being prompted by theses celestial energies and gifts. This energy is connected to the evolutionary awakening of humanity.
These magnetic waves do influence and stimulate the awakening that is occurring within each and every human on your planet. This energy is activating latent codes. We have spoken and suggested that your very DNA responds to the light packets of photons so gradually that you might not be aware of these gentle activations and recalibrations. Most of these changes occur in such subtle ways that you do not realize they have taken place. However, there is an internal shift being made within your very circuits. In the coming months there will be a hastening, a quickening of what is being offered from your galactic center.
There is an accelerated rate and frequency that you are experiencing as well as witnessing within humanity; it will continue till the end of your year and beyond. Realize that this speeding up of electromagnetic energy can certainly cause some people to react in a more violent manner. There is certainly more unrest and chaos, especially with the monetary system around the planet. This is not a time to anchor any form of fear. You are a powerful multidimensional divine creator, know this and claim this. You are here to anchor this true awakening and seed this potent field with a new reality.
There is a powerful frequency of gamma light coming from the galactic center or core. Understand that gamma ray bursts of energy are the most powerful explosions in the known universe. They can discharge as much energy as your Sun during its entire 10 billion year lifetime.
This intense intergalactic frequency of energy is advancing at optimal strength and culminating during your next full moon and total lunar eclipse.
This has been called "The Event Horizon” and it happens every 3,600 years. This intense frequency of galactic energies will trigger an awakening in humanity that will manifest shifts in the actions and consciousness of all for years and centuries to come.
You are now witnessing and experiencing the ending of one great galactic cycle and the beginning of another. The completion of this incredible cosmic cycle is stretching your understanding of what is reality, It is activating your awareness and inviting you to welcome the true understanding of the extraordinary dimensional shift of which you are an active part. You are the chalice for these incoming vibrations; anchor them fully into the field and matrix.
Understand that humanity is in a process of cosmic alchemy that is transforming your DNA, expanding your consciousness and shifting your physical body from the carbon-based matrix and blueprint to a precise, accomplished and elegant crystalline matrix and organism
There are alignments occurring which open cosmic portals allowing energies to flow to this reality and timeframe, raising everything to a higher vibration and frequency.
Be mindful to care for your physical form as your body is the chalice in which this intense cosmic awakening is being anchored into your dimension. Rest, hydrate yourself, be in nature as much as possible, breathe deeply and sigh into your exhale regularly. Be mindful of the use of stimulants. Put your electronic devices aside for a while.
Remember and say often, I am fully embodied, anchored to earth and connected to Divine Source. Imagine pulsating light flooding the cells and DNA throughout your body with messages of aliveness and well-being.
Be aware that your starseed codes are being triggered, allowing you to establish a true resonance with the higher dimensional realities. Know that you are experiencing your fifth dimensional Self and beyond. Release your third-dimensional limitation to this awareness and reality.
Understand that you are anchoring the gift of cosmic light. This cosmic light has the ability to transmute old karmic patterns and limited programs from all your past embodiments. Invite this to occur; intend this process of transmutation/transformation to unfold in a gentle and graceful manner. Understand that every moment is ripe with potential.
Use your ability to imagine and your ability to focus, to seed, as well as anchor, a world and reality in which all beings thrive, in which all beings are honored, loved, nurtured, and respected. Envision and claim your partnership with your beloved planet Earth. Envision the divine partnership between all living things. Envision your oceans clean, your air clear, and your forests restored. Envision your foods nourishing, healthy and available for all.
Begin to accept that you are a major part of this evolution and that you are connected to the whole. Honor yourself as you create a sacred space. Create a ceremony or ritual that will allow you to be the chalice for this seeding. You can be alone or gather with others and anchor these powerful energetic gifts. Make clear intentions as you imprint this energy with your visions of life sustaining actions and realities. Share this information.
The event you have labeled the Harmonic Convergence that occurred almost 30years ago offered a powerful surge of energy which served to trigger and awaken humanity. This is the next surge which will offer humanity the opportunity for advanced enhancement of awakening.
Reach out and invite the support of other sentient beings. Recognize that humanity is moving to a level of Planetary Consciousness, a level of Oneness with all. Invite the awareness that you are entangled, intertwined with all starseed beings here on your planet and those who are non-physical aspects of consciousness.
Now is the time. We celebrate your expansion; we support your personal and global transformation. Invite us as well as all loving beings of Light to assist you and others as you move through these challenging yet exciting times. the 'team'

The Speakers channeled by Brent Goodman
“If you’re referring to the September shift of 2015, what you are experiencing – and are on the cusp of – is a galactic energy wave that is traveling toward your physical dimension, and will swell toward the 23rd of September, when its effects will become undeniably real to even the non-believers of all of this metaphysical, new age talk. In some respects, it is going to have a psychedelic reaction on those who at least expect that reality IS, in fact, a holographic illusion created by your inner consciousness.
It is going to be a trip on a massive scale. Those of you who are familiar with this practice of connecting with higher frequency energies will feel an elation like never before. Artists will experience this shift as an infinite inspiration to create new works of art. Musicians will create symphonies. Athletes will defy the laws of physics. For those of you on a positive vibration, those of you who have actively cleared the ‘gunk’ from your personalities, you will be buoyant, and will swell on a great tidal wave of energies that will reach the Earth in a matter of DAYS.
Aren’t you excited!? We sure are. We who are watching from the non-physical. We who know that this event occurs in a calendar cycle that only manifests once every tens of thousands of millennia, if that. And the one that is about to reach Earth is of a magnitude that is unprecedented in your physical system.
5D reality, as we will call it, is an upgrade from 3D reality, which is what you have grown accustomed to in your physical bodies. Your senses perceive a 3-dimensional frequency. Those of you who meditate, and practice, and clear, are able to tune into higher dimensions (4,5,6,8,7,9,12,13), and you perceive information pouring in from non-physical sources. This shift, this wave coming toward you, is going to lift the energy of the Earth at a global scale, undeniably for those who have never experienced metaphysical phenomenon: Telepathy, seeing orbs, making contact with extraterrestrial intelligences. Those of you who have never dreamed of such realities will be thrust into 5D reality, because the Earth, as a crystalline structure, will be lifted into a 5D reality.
When this happens, the best you can do is enjoy the new sensations, enjoy the new perceptions, acclimate to them as fast as possible, and then radiate your stability across the Unified Consciousness of the Earth. Radiate this stability, because others who are quite unsure of what is happening will be able to tune into your stability and find their own footing faster as well. That’s all you need to do to help – is to stabilize yourself as fast as possible. You are the latticework of grounding, just as you have been the latticework of light points up to this juncture.
We are grateful for your help, beautiful ones. We love you. We will be even closer than ever before because in 5D reality, you will find it effortless to communicate with your Higher Self. You will find it effortless to create a world of peace, and love, and harmony. You are so close to this transformation. Every day now: Meditate, tune into the 5D, tune into the Love and Light of this new consciousness, which is spiraling toward your reality.
You are here. You are infinite. You are individual. You are interconnected. You ARE God’s Love personified.
We are THE SPEAKERS. Namaste. Good night.”
Greetings from Home with Steve Rother and the Group
You are magic. Each of you holds a special form of magic, something that you specifically brought from Home. You intended to focus your entire life on bringing it to Earth, and you are starting to re-member that in new ways. This is a magical time on Earth, dear ones, where each of you can start to re-member your true power and step into it even the tiniest bit. Your actions and commitment are what creates your world in front of you, for these are new times. We will share a little bit of what lies before you right now so that you can view it from our perspective. When you do this, dear ones, you fall in love with humanity. There are times when you turn on your television sets and see that the world according to your belief systems is a mess. It appears everyone is going in different directions. Although you cannot see what is truly taking place, we do, so we will share that with you. These are amazing times that may also be a little bit challenging for many of you. You do not quite understand what is taking place. These changes are happening in many different areas simultaneously, but we will only share with you one that is making a difference in your own reality.
Many Governments Do No Represent the Collective Heart of Humanity
You have this wonderful thing taking place in the United States called your presidential elections. Oh my goodness, we cannot wait to watch all of this mayhem that you are preparing. This is a massive journey into what we are not quite sure. In the beginning you used these elections to choose the best person for the job. Of course, over many decades it has turned into something entirely different. So, let us take you back quite a few years to when this change started to take place. It was actually during the early 1960s when you had a presidential election between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. This election was actually decided for the simple reason that one was able to present himself better on television than the other. That experience had a huge effect for the first time in the collective. Most of the people you have chosen to run your governments are lawyers. They have a history of all this understanding behind them. Why would it be that one must be a lawyer to run your countries? That would simply indicate that everything must go through the legal system. What has happened, dear ones, is that in many places in the world your governments no longer represent the collective heart of humanity. As we have very simply shared with you before, it is the collective heart of humanity that will run and rule. Now what you are seeing is your governments are trying to scamper to get in front of this. Your presidential elections in the United States are a very simple example of this happening. All these people are jumping in front of the camera, presenting themselves very well and confidently, but what they are saying does not always make sense. Why are so many people backing and encouraging them? Because they are channeling the frustration. It is very simple. They are the only ones that have even addressed this frustration. There is a gap in the middle of your economic system, where your middle class should be, but quite simply is not. Why are your governments not representing you in that way? You have turned this into a capitalistic system and, therefore, the money speaks louder than the collective. That is in the process of changing.
Money Speaking Louder than the Collective
Exactly how this change takes place we will have to wait and see. It could possibly result in a complete collapse of the system, then rebuilding it on solid ground, which in our estimation is not a bad thing at all. We wish you would just get on with it! Or, you can continue to prop things up and pretend everything is okay, and actually make small changes along the way to evolve it in that way. We tell you, dear ones, the earlier method is currently underway but we will have to wait and see where this goes. What about this frustration and why is it there? Quite simply, you have turned everything—especially in this area—into something based entirely on capitalism. Capitalism was the most important piece, and you have brought it into your government. In truth, through your systems, those that speak the loudest tend to get elected. Well, you are about to see how loud people can speak. In fact, you will actually end up voting most of the time by turning the channel because it will get pretty crazy over the next year. When you turn the channel, most of the time they actually know it. Yes, your voice can be heard in different ways, dear ones. Right now, it is a circus but it is fun and interesting to watch. Does it represent what is taking place? It represents the frustration that is still not being addressed.
The People's Frustration
Why is there so much frustration? A person can see very clearly where the frustrations come from. You had an election at one point where your entire collective decided on one person, but another person became president. You can feel that your government does not actually represent you; it has more to do with those who are paid by these companies to be lobbyists. Those are the people that fill these gaps and move your government one way or the other with corporate money. Now you are at a point where you are going to make some important decisions. We are specifically talking about the United States at this time, but as you know all of your energies are connected especially through your economic systems. So, what is good for one is actually good for all countries. The whole world is watching these changes as they are evolving, because everyone will affect another. We can hardly wait to see where you go with this. We see none of this as bad and it might help you to keep that in mind, because our vision is further than yours. We can see what you build on the other side and that is why we hope you just get on with it and take that next step. Above all we hope that your governments are able to adjust quickly enough, because currently they are not listening.
Let Your Collective Voice Be Heard
Now you have a fresh energy of new people coming in. The good part about that, at least in the United States, is that your collective voice is being heard right now. That is fascinating, for all of this is bringing attention to something that has vanished. Many people have felt like, “Oh, that is just them. They will go do their thing anyway. They do not need me to participate.” Dear ones, they do need you. You are part of the collective in more ways than you can imagine. To express your voice in that collective is going to be one of the greatest possibilities that you have. You will create your world on a small scale, as well as on a large one where you will interact with the others. It is how you all come together at these magical times. Dare to dream. Dare to bring back your hopes. Look into the future and dare to plant the greatest possibilities for yourself at that moment. Treat yourself well knowing that you are a creature carrying all the energy of what you call god. Each of you can start using those abilities to create your world around you. When you reach that highest level to where you have created something that fully supports you, that is the time you become the highest use to the universe. Those times are happening right now.
It Is Time to Get On With It
So, we will ask you, what will it take in your life to get on with it and take that next step? Are you waiting for an election or for some door to magically open? We tell you, dear ones, you have that opportunity now…very clearly. Step into it. Claim it. Step forward. Each of you has brought a part of the blueprints for the New Earth from Home. Now you may call it your internal truth, but it only fits together when you can speak it in such a way that it fits together with the other truths around you. How do you do that? Very simple. Practice. That is all there is. Keep trying and step forward in love, then you will start to fill some of these gaps where this frustration is. How can this frustration about this middle level be solved? Through creativity, and through giving them a voice. Giving them the power to re-create. Of course when we speak of them, many of them are you. Channel it and do so in a very positive way. Look for change, absolutely. There are many shifts and rapid changes that need to take place in your systems in order to transition from one area to the next. We see those about to begin, though not yet beginning. The beautiful part is that the collective vibration is making a noise that cannot be misunderstood on this Earth. People are starting to step forward very carefully, knowing that every movement they make affects others around them. Your own vagus nerve is starting to evolve so you can feel that compassion even more throughout all humans. This is part of the lightbody returning that humans are now experiencing. You can hold more of your own light. What we ask you to do dear ones, is get on with it. Step forward. Step up. Here it comes. Deal with it the best you can and do not wait for the perfect opportunity, for it is here, now. You have so much that is taking place, yet what you may not understand is that you are in charge of all of it. The collective vibration now decides. That means if you choose to be quiet, you give up your power. It is time to speak, and step forward, to claim your willingness and your wisdom. Not that it is always perfect, but unless it is offered up there is no possibility of reaching harmony.
A Critical Date
Bring it forward. In these times, dear ones, you will be well guided. Sometimes you will open your mouth with a clear intent of your heart to speak something, but you will not quite know where the words are in your head. So you will start to channel from the heart in a new way, which is the opportunity for spirit to speak clearly through you. As you devise and develop this new way of working together in the new planet Earth, we can hardly wait to see what you do next. We tell you specifically that we have given you a date to watch for, the second week in November was to be a critical tilting point. At the time we gave you that date it had to do with the Federal Reserve making a specific move at the end of October. Now, we tell you that has already passed and you have already moved that critical date. Not out of trouble but moving in the right direction. Yes, you had a little dip in the energies in the meantime, showing some of the weaknesses in the global economies in the world and China has a big part of that. Work together with it, dear ones. Send them energy and wish them the best. Know that you are all connected. Stop pointing fingers and calling yourselves separate and claim responsibility for all of it. That is the way of the new Earth, knowing that you are part of every piece of it. Claim your failures as well as your success because that is how you grow and just enjoy playing the game. It is time to get on with it.
It is with the greatest of honor that we ask you to treat each other with respect. Nurture one another at every opportunity. Play the new game well together.
Espavo, dear ones
The word Espavo is an early Lemurian greeting : “Thank You for Taking Your Power”
The Final Clearing!!!
By Sharon Lyn Shepard
Emotions are flaring like never before! As we awaken to the truth of who we are, we’re no longer willing to be shackled by the old paradigms. Everything is erupting like volcanoes that have been subdued for far too long with emotions blasting into the air and sludge slithering around our feet. People are at war with each other. And without realizing it, we are at war within ourselves as we try to sort it all out. But, things are not as crazy as they appear.
Here’s the Good News!!
This is all part of the Divine plan as we integrate our LightBodies, fully embodying our GodSelf to express and manifest in physicality as master creators in a way that has never been done before.
Many of us are already experiencing the integration of our LightBodies. The first recognizable phase began with our physical body, aches and pains that medical science could not begin to diagnose. Then we began questioning our sanity as we went beyond the human mind. Now we have become emotionally unstable!
And the Great New is….
This IS the final clearing!
It might help to understand the difference between emotions and feelings. In many ways, you could say feelings are the higher version of emotions. “Emotions” are a chemical hormonal reaction triggered by the human mind for survival. Whereas “feelings” are the divine guidance system of the spiritual body.
Emotions are a reaction stimulated by the mind’s interpretation, which draws upon memories of the past or worry about the future based on the past. Whereas feelings are rooted in the present moment, giving you access to divine wisdom and infinite intelligence in alignment with your GodSelf that sees everything from the perspective of wellbeing.
Humans, especially the masculine, have been taught that feelings are a weakness. Thus, we have walled them off which has separated us from our divine guidance system. This birthed the emotional body which has gone hand in hand with the reptilian brain as the fight or flight mechanism to survive. Since then we’ve even attempted to bury our emotions, which only overstimulates them resulting in adrenal fatigue, degeneration and illness.
When the LightBody is activated these submerged emotions begin coming to the surface. At first you will notice the increase in drama, personally and collectively, as they begin to flow freely. And there will be no stopping them! In this new energy, we simply need to allow everything to surface of its own accord in it’s perfect timing. There is no judgement. We haven’t done anything wrong. This is all part of the process, clearing that which no longer serves us as we continue to evolve and expand.
As awakened beings, we are in the process of transcending our emotions to fully connect to our feelings again. The past and the future have no relevance to our multidimensional LightBody. Therefore the emotional body will eventually be absorbed by the LightBody and we will automatically respond from our “feelings” rather than react with our “emotions”.
Right now feelings seem illusive, whereas emotions are more instantaneously reactive and they make us feel alive. This is where many humans get stuck. As the emotions recede, we fear death, or at the very least boredom. Then we jump back into the dramas of the emotional game to feel alive again rather than learning how to manage emotions from a more expanded perspective.
This is the critical point when it’s important to unplug from the drama. Much like the pause between the in-breath and the out-breathe, we need to pause, take a deep breath and “feel” into life rather than reacting to it. We need to become comfortable with the silence which is the gateway to our feelings where the font of true life flows. (see “Moving Beyond Conflict” for helpful guidance to move through these times with ease and grace.)
Once we learn to fully trust our GodSelf, the reptilian brain will eventually dissolve and the emotional body will be absorbed into the LightBody. At which point, the LightBody will fully integrate as body, mind and spirit into One whole Being as it transforms 3d matter into multidimensional matter.
During transition, the question that will always bring us home to our true feelings is: “Am I aligned with my GodSelf?” Therein lies your trusted guidance system. Once we become adept with our feelings, free of the old quantifiers, our feelings will blossom into an expanded multidimensional sensory system to include a richer more palpable range of sensations… deeper, more vibrant, passionate and creative. Thus, we will revel in our feelings and experience life from a whole new perception.
I am speaking here from a more expanded viewpoint and planting seeds into the collective consciousness. These changes will be happening progressively over time. Very few understand what we are speaking of, but perhaps there is something here for your peace of mind that can be translated through your energy field to those who come in contact with you, without the need for words.
We are on the ultimate illustrious journey and I thank each one of you for your devoted participation. Remember, we are Blessed with each and every breath. And it is the Breath of the Divine that is the final clearing.

Powerful Leaps Forward
By Kara Schallock
Since March, in particular, we have been expanding, growing and changing exponentially. Each solar activity, each New & Full Moon has been extraordinarily intense, pushing us forward as if we have been riding a wave that increases in speed as we get closer to the shore. This past Full Moon has been incredibly powerful and still is. Many “ascension symptoms” have returned…intense ear noise, sleep disruptions, digestive issues, buzzing in different parts of the body, headaches, nausea and the list goes on. At the same time, we are more intuitive, clearer and are experiencing amazing dreams; be they releasing, healing or showing us a magnificent view of the shore.
Many are leaving the planet, including many life forms as well. And now we are moving toward the eclipse on September 13th, which will be rather huge for us. We are actually not only feeling the last Full Moon, but are also feeling the build-up of the eclipse energy. It is pushing us toward making even more changes, if necessary. Enough of the excuses and feeling victimized; you either leap fully into being Love or you grow ever more miserable in old life.
There is more integration of our spiritual beliefs; in other words, if you aren’t walking your talk, you suffer. Why? Because it is just not enough to talk about it; we must Be it. Talking without acting is of the old. Many say they want their New Life, yet how many are willing to let go of what they know and who they are (based on their history) in order to allow New Life to manifest? Living our Truth may not be easy, yet it is extremely rewarding. We are put in touch with the Ecstasy of living congruently. We question nothing; seek nothing; for we have all within us. As we integrate the many and ongoing downloads of Light, we realize that we are ready to live the lives we’ve imagined and have dreamed about. When we don’t use the Light we have, it sits dormant. You need no-one or nothing outside yourself. You don’t need a community or a guru or a partner to be whole. These are choices.
With both the last Full Moon and the upcoming eclipse, we expand in our Intuition and feeling-Heart, moving more away from the need to know what, why, how, where or who. Everything is based on feeling and resonating. We no longer can tolerate anything less or anyone who is still “playing dumb.” For those less aware, they too are affected by the energy; they feel it as emotional turmoil. They have drama and chaos consistently and they continue to blame others and circumstances, which keeps them in a self-fulfilled prophecy. This is because where-ever one places their attention is what manifests. The awakened ones perceive challenges as opportunities to grow in Awareness. The challenges do not stop them; they continue to move forward with more Strength, more Grace, and more Commitment.
While the energy peaks this month, manifestation of the transformational energies may not be experienced till October or November. Meanwhile, release what comes up (old anger is a big one), meditate, stay grounded and be open to what shows up in your life. Stay focused on how you want to feel. Let go of the details, for the details are born from how you choose to feel.
Be the Compassionate Observer with everything that presents itself. When you are in Detachment, there is great Clarity and you see and feel exactly what you need to do…or not do. Be aware of core issues you may have, which may come up to be healed (transformed to Wholeness). These are the areas that keep resurfacing in your life. Before you release it, ask what it is trying to tell you in regard to what is important for you to change. For instance, if you are lonely, what is the core issue? Is it abandonment? Is it a sense of not belonging or rejection? Is it a fear of abandonment or rejection? Go deep and don’t be surprised if something bubbles up that you previously had no Awareness of before. As you release the old, choose your New name based on how you choose to feel and create from.
This past week on my Facebook page, I asked people to choose a New name. These names could be an essence such as Love, Acceptance, Joy, Peace, Commitment, etc. and then live that New name in each moment, letting go of all history; just focused on the New Now. By renaming yourself you place ownership of what you are currently creating. You keep your focus on whatever name you choose for yourself. It keeps you from the addiction of analyzing everything and brings you right into the present moment, which creates the New. When you analyze and need to know why, you become stuck in the intellect, which only knows the past and what you have been told by others. More information is not your friend.
Be aware when you are resisting change or when you perceive that what you want and how you envision it coming to you isn’t manifesting in the way you thought it would. Let go of resistance to change and let go of control. Allow Divine Order to work through you. When you assert your ego-control, you will always be disappointed, for ego cannot create; only Soul creates. Align with Divine Will.
Let go also of defensiveness. Being defensive of your position always is ego trying to hold onto the old. If you can trace any defensiveness to a root cause/belief, you can then let it go. Being defensive is always you attempting to hold onto something you don’t want to release or change. Also, be aware of when and if you are critical of self, others or something in the world. Trace it back to an old belief. If you think you’re better than others and thus are critical of them; this is judgment and is a subset of fear. So if you are in judgment, are you afraid perhaps that you are more like that which you judge or criticize? What is it showing you?
With the energies of both the Full Moon and upcoming eclipse, we are in a space between realities; neither here nor there. We are moving into a bigger reality, which brings more opportunities for Expansion into New Life. This will push us even more out of our comfort zone. Its potential is to be a real “game-changer.” It is, therefore, important to remove distractions from your life. The more you can keep your focus on living your spiritual life the better. Go with what is presented, for everything has a deeper message. Know too that as the eclipse draws closer, ear noise, Heart “fluttering” and more may become stronger. It is all in Divine Perfection. We are in a quickening. Get clear on everything and let go of anything that is not supportive, loving, nurturing or inspiring.
Do not push or rush things. Take your time; if you feel unsure, don’t take action. Instead, wait till you are 100% sure of your direction and guidance. Do not compromise yourself and remind yourself that you deserve only the best. This is an act of self-Love, so necessary now. Any time you give up your Power or settle for something that doesn’t feel right through and through, you are cheating yourself.
Much is happening in your sleep as well, so if you wake up exhausted, this is why. Also, if you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep, realize that your body is integrating what you just downloaded. Instead of being frustrated, meditate. There is so much that is shifting and there is so much old that is dissolving. Let it be what it is. Let it be all right also to change your mind about anything. This includes plans and what others want from you. Do nothing to minimize yourself by thinking you have to please others by “not letting them down.”
We all have shifted so much that you may wonder how much more there is to go. This is when you can let it be what it is. Remember that we all are releasing many lifetimes of clogging attitudes and wounds we’ve endured. Each thing we have experienced always creates a belief. Beliefs create. This is why it is so important to take a look at our beliefs to see if they match who we are and who we are becoming. Trust that your Soul knows the way and is helping to free you from limitations. Your Soul is pure Love. What does that mean to you? Do you think it is possible to be nothing but Love, free to be whoever you choose to be?
Your Soul wants to assure you that you can let go and let be. Your Soul wants you to trust its Divine Wisdom. Your Soul wants to let you know that if you choose, you can allow your separate ego be your ascended ego: the vehicle through which Soul speaks, thinks and acts. When you get angry at separate ego, you only strengthen its separation from Soul. Love it and embrace it and assure it, as you would an acting-out toddler, that it is loved and it is safe.
Do trust that you are loved and guided and supported in all you do. Source loves you so much that you are free to choose whatever path you want.
