A Tip For More Bliss When in A Storm

This continues to be a very intense year (yup, once again Kryon’s words of this being a year of full moon energy!). I don’t know about you, but I feel like things have been coming at me from all angles. It’s that time of year: back to school, a change in season, and many people find themselves overwhelmed with responsibilities and not enough time (or arms and legs!) to do everything we’d like to do. Including me! And then there is the added pressure of others letting you know how you’ve disappointed them or let them down. And throw in some very difficult conversations you KNOW you must have and you’ve got a perfect storm! What is a Lightworker to do? And then a loved one confessed to me that they have been contemplating suicide. This abruptly snapped many of my “problems and stresses” into perspective. Once again, I sit down, take some deep breathes, intend to be connected to Mother Earth, Father Sky, and the highest ones of love, light and wisdom and ask, “What is in the highest and best interests for all concerned?” And the writing starts: We are reminded of Kryon’s reference to you being a Lighthouse. That a Lighthouse is useful in a storm, yes? A Lighthouse does not get up and wander around “looking” for a storm, but rather a Lighthouse is anchored to the Earth [firmly & deeply rooted] and is constructed to provide light, shelter, and guidance when a storm happens. A Lighthouse is constructed to weather a storm and is needed in areas that have a tendency to have a high probability of accidents or dangerous situations occurring. You are a Lighthouse. Like it or not. You did not come here to sit on the beach with your feet up, drinking your Piña Colada as the main focus on your Earthly journey this time around. Yes, other lifetimes you may have signed up for that (needed a “rest and recuperation” lifetime). However, this was not the “rest and recuperation” lifetime for you. Nope! Instead, you knew you’d be heading into a storm and so you prepared yourself. You picked your parents so they would help temper you, like a sword is tempered for strength in the fires. You chose the country you’d be born into, again as a way to temper and prepare you for experiences in this lifetime. You chose particular scenarios to be exposed to [made arrangements to maximize the likelihood of being exposed to particular events] that would temper your Being. From the outside, many of you would NEVER have chosen the experiences, at least not consciously by the human part of you. And yet from a soul level, the larger part of you, the part of you that is aware of much more than just your current human lifetime expression this time around, knew EXACTLY what you hoped to experience. Thus, that larger part of you set the potentials in place to maximize the odds of it…

There is Only One Moment – Part 2

It is so funny to me. I open my heart to listen and I hear the first phrase and say to myself, “Wait a minute! That was yesterday’s topic! This can’t be right!” But I keep writing. Then part way through I am thinking, “Okay, this doesn’t even make any sense! What I am writing is complete ramble without meaning, it is just random thoughts with no connection!” But, I have learned that my consciousness is not important in the process of listening, in fact, if it were out of the way, the message can be received with greater ease. I let my brain step aside, and just keep on writing. Afterward, I felt completely exhausted and lay down and slept soundly for an hour. Here are the words of Spirit! They are so beautiful to me, I feel so humbled and honoured to hear them. They make sense, they make perfect sense, isn’t it funny that I wasn’t able to process what I was hearing in the moment of listening? Sharing these words is a joyful way to let this light shine out through me, not from me, to whomever it may be that might find need to hear them. So….. Yay! —Catherine   Look Within Yourself And Reach For The Core Star It’s this way today. If we take one moment to be the best There is a challenge Inherent in the request Look within yourself And reach for the core star Blue light I can hear you say, “What is the purpose of this kind of exercise?” Let me explain Looking within yourself to find the blue light there Is why you’ve come to be Reaching into your heart To find the essence of blue Creates a reason for your external existence If I were to take you Separate from your inner light You would wither and fade Because your inner truth Is a deep, Profoundly deep part Of who you’ve come here to be Look inward And find your truth Cherish it Love it Behold it for the beauty that it represents Then let it shine Let it shine Let it shine Does this mean Explode into the world with who you are? Does this mean Open your core self up for all to see? …. Hold out your light in the palm of your hands in a blinding blaze and let the world behold your true nature? Is that what it means? What if your light is blinding? Listen Listen It’s okay to walk quietly Listen for quiet ways to share your light with others We want to share our light In a gentle, meaningful way Let the shadows fall away Let your golden light shine Peace Amen I conclude… Let your love win

Procrastination – Part 2

Tuning in to the highest ones of love, light, and wisdom… do you have any information for Wisdom Wednesday this week? Yes, on the topic of procrastination we continue. What did you discover this past week regarding procrastination? Did you have any revelations about yourself or another? Did you discover a purpose for the procrastination that you had not yet thought about? This idea can be extended to other “bothersome” emotions you feel you want to “get rid of”, whether it is anger or apathy, resistance or reluctance. Ask yourself, “What purpose is this emotion serving in my life right now? What is it attempting to make me aware of?” Another useful question is, “Is this emotion mine? Or have I picked it up from another?” Emotions are tools for you to use on this Earth plane. They can be a gateway to deeper knowing and deeper understanding about yourself and others, if you let them. And that is the key: to let emotions surface naturally, like when you were a child. When you are children, you tend to have much more freedom to allow yourself to express your emotions. They rise up like a wave, you feel them, then you let them go. Children have a much easier time of “letting them go” than you find as an adult. During the course of your “domestication” on this planet, you learn (or agree) to suppress emotions in order to get a desired outcome. Unlike when you were a child, you learn to “hang onto” the emotions, sometimes never letting them go. Layers and layers are placed over them to “encase” the emotions, thus often they become so buried they are removed from your conscious awareness. Then a situation happens in your life that triggers this “old” emotion and suddenly it pops up “out of nowhere” and may often catch you by surprise, and may seem to be completely unrelated to whatever is going on in the present moment, or even the present lifetime! How about that? Are you open to the possibility that an emotional reaction you are experiencing in this lifetime may not even have it roots in this lifetime, yet is being triggered by an event in this lifetime? So then you may ask, “Well, how do I clear it? Or do I need to clear it? Do I need to do anything about it?” The answers to these questions will be different from person to person, thus you need to ask yourself. For example, you could ask yourself, “Is it in the highest and best interest for all concerned that I have conscious awareness about this emotion and its origins?” Or perhaps ask, “Is it in the highest and best interest for all concerned that I take steps to clear it?” And again you could ask, “Is this emotion mine or another person’s?” We encourage you to take a curious approach. Ask questions and see what answers come back from your intuition and your body wisdom. Another…

There is Only One Moment – Part 1

If I could take one moment in time To be your best What could it possibly be? You hear my words And share them with an open and loving heart What could be better than that? For me It isn’t about One best moment It is the essence of truth Shared in a loving light Which speaks of a best possible way to share love Love is the essence of truth Truth is the ultimate gift Of love It’s one and the same If you were to wrap the best Into one moment Then let that one moment last for all time Let it reach out to touch the edge of time In all directions And let your whole life be About that We can compare each other to one another But what is there to compare (If we are all one) Accept the way in which we conduct ourselves? Conduct yourself in the way of love, To be the best of your ability And let the rest fall away into the nothing that it is I can honestly say That nothing else matters Accept for love And as such If we hold ourselves to that high standard Then we must breathe in the beauty of all existence And breathe out the same to others Open your heart to love And let that be who you are Across all time and place There is only one moment, ever And that moment Is now Spirit via Catherine [ August 12, 2013 ]

What about procrastination?

You may have been wondering what the heck has been going on with the Wisdom Wednesday’s this past month. Well, to be honest, me too! For the past several weeks, every time I went to send out the weekly e-mail, I kept getting the inner “No.” And then another week would go by, I’d check in again, and still a “No.” What the heck?!? I’m still not sure “how come,” however I trust that this is in the “highest and best interest for all concerned” even if I may never become aware of the “how come.” Sometimes listening to our inner “yes” and “no” can bring up lots of feelings and thoughts. In days gone by, I would have really been stressing out about this past month of “no” answers: worried that I’d be letting people “down” or about what people would say or wondering if I’d fallen into some sort of cycle of procrastination…. or any other number of mental and emotion tortures. While I may still have this thoughts pop in my mind, I am able to more quickly let them go and return to state of  “acceptance”, trusting things will work out. I was mulling all this over and then one of our community members e-mailed: So what about procrastination? Do you ever struggle and fight with it? I know when I face procrastination, I can end up feeling bad about having to “deal with it”. After all, shouldn’t I be “over that”? Do you beat yourselve up about it, too? Even torture yourself about it, lecturing yourself? I typically, will want to hide the fact that I am in the middle of struggling with it. Somewhere in my upbringing, the message that we are to “DO” was desirable and “good” and that “not DOing” was lazy and “bad”. And if we were ever seen to be lazy, we got crap for it. It was not until I was older did I begin to question things I was taught by my parents and Society, however by that point, many messages had already been cemented and  only later would I realize these ingrained thoughts and habits were the cause of limitations and problems I faced. There are still times I really struggle with procrastination. To the point where I feel paralyzed and just want to mentally and emotionally “check out.” I ask myself, “Where does all that come from? How can I change it? How can I not have it?” Times of pleading to have the procrastination go away and stop plaguing me….  What to do about it? Sylvia’s e-mail prompted me to sit down and ask about procrastination and here’s what came through (and I am VERY curious to have feedback from others who also “asked” about it): Yes, a struggle for many. A heavy burden for others. It is not a socially acceptable thing to you. Yet, you are faced with it and what to “do” about it. We invite you to get curious. Get curious…

Tips to take your next step

I just attended my niece’s high school graduation! Oh, how time flies. On the one hand it seems like yesterday that she was 2 years old and we were drawing pictures, belly-down on the livingroom floor. On the other hand, both of us have had 16 year’s of life experiences go by since then. Wow! Anticipating her graduation, she shared that she felt excited and nervous. Excited about completing such a huge goal and at the same time freaked out about stepping into the “unknown.” I could relate, as I felt the very same thing when I graduated high school many years ago. Having 12+ years of highly structured life and then someone tells you that it’s “over” can be kind of scary! While she has decided she wants to study marine biology (she just LOVES sharks), she also wonders what will happen next. Can you think of a time when you felt the same way? Or perhaps you felt stuck, unsure what was next in life, or not knowing the next step to take? After I got off the phone with my neice, I was thinking about our conversation and then I   started to write. Wondered if you might be interested so thought I’d share… Go with the flow. In each moment, is there a way to “ride the wave” downstream rather than attempt to fight the current of events in your life? When you change your perspective, come from a different place of thinking, change your tune and harmonize with what IS, life can be more magical, more “graceful” as Geoff Hoppe says.  The tendency with the human experience is to want to control every aspect of your creation. You can do this, as you have free will. And we also offer you an alternative: to ride the wave of possibility that is in your NOW. What is happening now that you can take a tiny step forward, such that you feel more joy? IS there a ay in which you can capitalize on your current moment? If you are brushing your teeth, can you take a little step such that even brushing your teeth is just that much more enjoyable? If you take the same route to work everyday, and you generally “tune out”, is there a small action you can take that will increase the joy or pleasure you experience while traveling from your home to work. If you have a job working with people, is there one small thing you can do today that would increase the joy and happiness you experience when you interact with our co-workers and the public? Seemingly small actions like these can have profound impacts on how your day progresses. Start with small experiments and just see what happens. Notice if you feel different. Did the small change leave you singing a different tune at the end of the day? Taking small actions will progressively add up to changes in your life, such that you increase the amount of time you feel joy and passion….

Shadow works its magic on the Earthly plane

I can honestly say The words of Heaven Are round And full And clean That they come to us In a wave With beauty as their guiding force. You sit in wonder You watch inwardly As the journey unfolds This is the puzzling part. There is a door into heaven That is never closed Can you hear the people there? I’m watching As they pour in One after the other You’d be surprised how many There isn’t a divider In souls who can or cannot come ALL are welcome ALL ascend at equal rates With arms open To the love that greets them In Heaven The answers are freely given There is a meditation A melding of hearts With sound and light Weaving amongst the many Shadow works its magic On the Earthly plane Light horizon Purple yellow green Let it do its magic there I can hear you question, “Why?” There is a positive force That weaves havoc in the shadow realm Why can’t we let these energies Do their dance together In their own way? Purpose has its place here Among the energies That work to the Highest Good Without our interference Let them be. I can tell you one thing Love will win out Let love be that which you Reach out endlessly for At all cost Let love shine Spirit via Catherine [April 13, 2013]

Right Timing

    There is a time and place for everything Isn’t that funny? With all the freedoms we share? I’d like to know the truth of that Would you?   Yes I would   I would like to share Listen in, if you like   A purpose             In love Has an order First this, then that. One cannot be fulfilled             Without the other   You’ve noticed   It’s not as harsh as it seems Here’s why   If I love you             And give you too much Where is the love in that? Your heart forms shadows at the thought I can see   Listen with an open heart             Listen with love   If I gave you             All – at once You would seize up With the wisdom of it With the weight of it             The shear mass   Knowledge has a weight             As such You would be crushed by your             Knowing Isn’t this the truth….    That bit by bit       Your spirit grows With each new pinnacle of Love?   Think of it      Take some time             You have all you need   I am part of a holy story for you      And I care for you deeply             In all ways   Light and colours      Animals and spirits They all join in the celebration      Of this dance of history unfolding   I can see the green      I can see the path in light             Stretched out before you   You choose what makes your heart sing as you come across it in your journey The opening is your choice One step at a time   —Spirit via Catherine [April 3, 2013]

Speaker questions?

Note from Cheryl: I had been asking Spirit, “What 4-5 questions can Amber and I ask each speaker that are: in the highest and best interest for all concerned AND that connect all speaker interviews with the theme of ‘Manifest Your Mission’?”. The following is an answer my dear friend Catherine received from one of my Spirit guides. Given the affects of your energy On the hearts of other people I believe we best start with a conscious effort To seize that grain of sand Best suited to your endeavours What if you ask each conscious mind a question like…. Better yet A thought or string of thoughts Related to their hearts desire? What is it that they most want to do for the world In manifesting their mission? How do they think they can make a difference With the love they share? What is it that will change the world Of those who follow their teachings? How can they summarize the best outcome in their eyes? What if no one listens? What then? How can they change the worlds’ view In a few easy steps? What is it that will change the world of those who follow their teachings? I feel a change coming I feel it in my bones. Yes, bones! What difference can they make In the lives of those who listen? About change: How can we do it without fear? About Love: How can we feel it in our daily lives? About challenge: What can they offer to keep our spirits up? These are the issues that make people want to listen That perk their ears That awaken their hopes Channel the talks around hope and love Make believe there is nothing else Nothing so important as this truth People want to know about chances About second chances About letting go of sorrow Let in the light Open the curtain Step out of the shadows Open the door Breathe in fresh air To the hearts of those who seek healing And those who don’t yet know what they yearn for A signpost Sometimes Is all it takes to help folks find a direction to take One step And then another Paint the signs in colour! So much to say, yes? Hold space in the entrance way For each soul to peer in At their own level In their own time This is the way of the wind This is the way of the world Your world Aren’t we all the same Really In our need to find connections with others? Let this be that place Hold out your hand And take hold of those who reach out to you Be patient in your wanderings With yourself at the helm Others will notice your self-love And seek to do the same For themselves Patience is a key to success Let humble work its magic In the truth you share I am not done But for today I say ‘Good night’ Let these thoughts play in your mind…

If there were a lock and key to your heart

If there were a lock and key to your heart To whom would you give the key? Isn’t it the funniest thing To hold the answer in your soul? Who has access to your soul? It’s a sacred story Listen to the answer We all hold the key To the ache in our own heart And yet we look for the answer elsewhere You don’t want to look that deep The answer is too revealing…. Once you let it out Once you let the truth out There will be no more fighting Take a journey I’m listening to silence, Spirit I’m hearing only my heartbeat in my ears My heart is open to the Love and Light of your message. If there is more to be heard, please let me share your words with Love. I can’t always be what you want The answer to all questions Sometimes you must answer for yourself, as this is part of who you are. Let yourself win Be the one the blue light shines for Be an answer for others Sleep now and listen to your dreams —Spirit via Catherine, March 12, 2013

The Nature of Love

The Nature of Love is as such: There is but one notion that needs to be portrayed.   What is it that you wish for? I only say this because There seems to be some doubt in your own mind as to what is right.   If there is this thing called Love That manifests in the hearts of others Is there not the same             For anyone that comes across it,   An opportunity to hold that delicate trust             That something                  Someone                         Is waiting for everyone?   Why would you doubt that the same would not be true for you? Hold out your hand             Open your heart                         And let it in   That’s all it takes It’s a willingness to let Love in    ‘But,” you say,              “This is not for me.”   Why do you push love away             With such a force? Why do you deny the possibility for you?    “Yes, but…”            You say And you hold out all the reasons why you can’t have what you desire most. What a puzzle you make of your life!   —Spirit via Catherine [March 11, 2013]

Regarding Love

Love is not a conditional contest If this – If that. Once love is given it cannot be reversed   We (Spirit) can’t push love one way or the other We cannot create or destroy it Love is given freely by those who manifest it Not given like a puppet There is no hesitation from this side!   —Spirit via Catherine [March 3, 2013]

A Heart Opened to the Divine

Tyler Carson is an internationally known fiddler/violinist born in Canada and recently moved to Seattle where his music with his duo ‘Impossible Bird’ is exploding on the West Coast of North America. Tyler is a graduate of the Integrative Energy Healing program at Langara University in New Westminster, BC and has recently returned from Auroville, India, where he completed his final project for his internship doing healing work with the people there. Tyler’s studies and healing work in Auroville included the opportunity to share his healing music in concert with members of the community. Here are reflections from his time in India: What I am exploring is making meditation in sound. If I can surrender enough so that I’m not performing from my mind and I’m just letting the music flow from me then I enter a state of energy flow – of being a vehicle for this Divine force to come through, in the modest way that it might be happening for me. When this happens, the sound is a dance of meditation in music. For me, good music has always been about an interaction with the audience. What was so wonderful in the setting in Auroville was that people there are very attuned to the subtle energy of spirit. In my concert, what I was doing was actually also what the audience was doing. For example, we started the performance with a meditation and what I wanted to do with that was to open up the energy field in the room so that we were all working together. If the audience member is listening to the music with their thinking mind, if they are going “Oh, I like this. Oh, I don’t like that.” Or “Oh, wow. Look at how fast his fingers are moving,” then they are on the mental level. When I am making music in this way—in the way of spirit – I am trying to release the mental level. In this way, what I am exploring is also what the audience is exploring. I hope the audience will listen with their heart and if it helps, go into a meditative kind of practice so that they can release the mental aspect and just be in the music because when they do that, it is a co-creative experience in bringing more of the Divine down into the energy of the room. My personal experience is that music deeply moves people. People come up after performances in North America where I am playing, for lack of a better term, more of a ‘popular’ genre of music, people come up and they are deeply moved by the music because we are playing from the heart. In the meditative music I am making in Auroville I am, in one sense, making music in a higher frequency because I am trying to only be a vehicle of the spirit that it is flowing through. When we can do that, we open up a higher frequency, which allows the audience…
