Invite In Your Desires!

The Means to Fulfill Your Desires

desiresAA Gabriel – All things in life are a part of the Universal Consciousness. This includes the desires of your heart. You have within you all that it takes to fulfill these desires and create the life you want to have. Know that each time you feel a deep longing, the seed of fulfillment is inherent within it.

There is a deep re-awakening within you, showing you a potential for all that you desire. This re-awakening results from your connection to God and the remembrance of the Angels who are guiding you always. As you commune more and more with this energy, your life will begin to take on the magical qualities you desire.

It begins with letting go. When you know in your heart that all your needs will be abundantly met, you can release the part of you that wants acquisition. You will now be free to discover the true desires in your heart. True desires have qualities that are fulfilled when the desires have been manifested. If the desire is for money, there is a quality that your heart seeks to have fulfilled — a sense of safety, an abundant lifestyle, or perhaps, simply freedom from worry.

Becoming aware of these qualities allows you to take action to gain these first, which will then allow the material form to manifest in a form which is in your highest good. The first step after discovering the qualities you seek, is always to ask for what you want, making sure you clearly state the qualities you are seeking to have. The Angelic Dimensions stand ready to assist you in the process of gaining all you desire in your life. Clarity is key.


It is truly God’s Plan to have all beings live in a state of abundant joy and freedom from fears: people living with peace, harmony and love in the world as well as within their families.  These qualities are not too much to ask for in your prayers because they are the natural state of balance in God’s world.  Your prayers you offer in order to attain them opens your mind and heart to fulfillment in your personal life.

It is also vital to be in the company of like-minded souls who believe that miracles are not only possible, they are also willing to have them manifest in their own lives. It is clear that in some situations in the world, only a miracle of divine proportions can create a solution. With enough people believing miracles are possible, there is no doubt that creative solutions, which are beyond the mind’s ability to understand at this time, will occur.

Begin now to allow miracles to manifest in your world. Be the first one to ask for Divine Intervention, and to share your belief with others, so that all may live in a new level of conscious awareness and abundant joy.

Those desires in your heart are there to remind you that miracles happen, and God provides you the ways to have all the good you desire in your life. Know that you are blessed and profoundly loved.

Call on the Divine Presence and the Angels, then allow the desires of your heart to be fulfilled.

Remember, you would not have the desire without the means to fulfill it.

World Changing Types

The 9 Personalities Which Are Changing The World

Nine distinct personality types make humanity very special, not only in their interactions with each other, but within themselves. Synchronicity ties them all together in a beautiful system that makes everything work. No human being is ever represented by just one of these personality types, but rather a mixture of several. And while the western mindset focuses on happy moments as the ideal, it is unaware that each piece of the puzzle, each with its flaws, is integral in the spiritual evolution of humanity. Everything is shifting and changing so quickly and each of these segments is playing a critical role in human consciousness.

9 Personality Types – Do You See Yourself?


Regardless of the initiative, these are the doers of our world. Being the number of ‘new’ in which all manifestation begins, they symbolize the principle of beginning or initiation through purity of purpose. It is the energy that begins all actions and leads the way in new directions. Without them, we would have a lot of trouble getting things done because when nobody else wants to do it, they step up and get it done with courage, originality and decisiveness. Their drive makes them magnificent manifestors and they require the support to keep them going. They do not tolerate laziness from the people within their circles, and they don’t like to ask for help from others. The Initiator is somebody we all depend on for monumental achievements because they are masters at self-sufficiency, invention, focus and rationality.

Key Strengths:
– Creators and primal force of consciousness and grand movements.
– Do not see an end to their journey and goals (retirement does not exist)
– The most powerful Initiators are those who awaken to their purpose to serve rather than rule (because they also make great rulers).
– Always at the forefront of directing and leading others
– Trust in their own ability to separate right from wrong regardless of what they are told.
– Often mentally stronger than most other people
– Live and breathe what they think they need to do and nothing will stop them from doing it.
– Generally optimistic people who have a great deal of inner strength and are often a source of inspiration to others.
– Self-motivated, striving for progress, with ambitious will, power and positivity.
– Pioneers with leadership qualities that attract many followers.
– Have an initiative, instinct and intuition that makes it all self-perpetuating.


Since the Initiators often drive themselves into physical illness through their constant drive to keep moving forward, the healers are necessary to help bring balance back to their physical health. It is a feminine energy that dominates the healer, but many men exhibit very strong healing energies. They symbolize the principle of coming together with another, positive/negative, male/female, day/night, black/white, yin/yang. They unite like-minds, and like-ideals. Above all, life must have meaning for Healers. Their intuitive sense is very strong and among the strongest of all personality types. They reflect a quiet power in the natural flow of judgement, and the need for planning and communication to do what is best for our souls. A healer’s strength and power is resilient and lasting and are some of the greatest powers hiding behind the throne. Some of the greatest men and women to ever walk the Earth (especially Initiators) had a healer as their partner or confidant by their side. They are extremely effective at bringing peace, harmony and balance to many different experiences, and they do it with tolerance, patience, co-operation and sensitivity — particularly to the needs of others. They are more likely to suffer in silence if they cannot get people within their close relationships to understand what the problem is between them.

Key Strengths:
– Skilled mediators exemplifying very high levels of compassion and empathy
– Their intuitive prowess is the highest of all personality types
– Eternally optimistic that the world is going to get better and that everyone will live in peace and harmony.
– Cooperate well with others in order to maintain harmony in their own lives.
– Avoid conflict and confrontation and instead see the big picture
– Tend to be selfless and focused on the greater good
– Concerned about seeing that everyone has the opportunity to develop their full potential.
– Want to be accepted for who they are and strive to maintain a job where that may be expressed
– Promote personal growth of themselves and others
– Exceptional nurturers and will always ensure that children are raised in a warm and loving environment, even at the expense of their own comfort


The Catalysts of the world have the unique gift of changing people and circumstances with consistency and creativity at all times. They are the meditators of the planet who allow others to tap into their energy. It is a vibrational state that is very stable throughout human consciousness and not necessarily of the stereotypical meditator with closed eyes in lotus position. The meditators may be one who can achieve the same energy while dancing, painting, crafting or using any artistry skill that enables them to achieve the vibration. When Initiators and Healers become frustrated, they look to the Catalysts for assistance on a quantum level. None of them may understand what they are doing for the other, but whatever comes the way of the Catalysts, becomes more peaceful because of them. When the Initiators and Healers unite, they often need the synthesis of the Catalyst to put all that energy into effective action. Those who exhibit Catalyst energy are enlivening, youthful and enthusiastic with their talents spread through communications of all kinds. They are masters are harmonizing energies with their emotions. Their energy does not work well with structure, plans or routines because of their ability to move out of linear thought. Catalysts are capable of very deep love, intuition and even psychic gifts and emotions, and this needs to be admired and loved by others.

Key Strengths:
– Carry the strong seed programming as ascended masters
– Can help anybody find peace, clarity, and love within
– Able to cope with life’s ups and downs and will not be disheartened for long by any setbacks.
– Many are truly gifted musicians, writers, dancers, and public speakers
– Broad-minded thinking, synthesis and triad
– Enthusiasm, youthfulness and enlivenment
– Great communicators and often have a brilliant command of language.
– Feel the need to inspire and beautify the world with their natural capabilities to take anything they have and create something beautiful from it.
– Encourage rather than discourage and always find solutions rather than problems

Before there was technology of any kind there was Gaia. Most modern day humans have lost this connection. Many “Protectors” are not aware they are light workers, but they do know they are connected to Gaia consciousness. They are the tree huggers, environmentalists, gardeners, animal whisperers, and all lovers of nature. Some ignore their own dietary requirements for energy and instead sacrifice those needs for their truth and love of Gaia. They love the Earth and Mother Nature for all she is and what she provides, and that passion never leaves them for the rest of their lives. They are born with it, infused at birth with a love for all that is Gaia. They are trustworthy, patient, conventional and traditionalists, yet seek security and ‘home’ as their haven. Protectors are extremely loyal to their cause, hardworking and security-conscious, with high values and morals. Their vibration needs disciplined harmony, dependability and responsibility in their lives. They are dependable, serious-minded individuals who need to be practical about all that they do. They have strong opinions and beliefs about what is right and necessary even if their perspective conflicts with the masses.

Key Strengths:
– Works steadily and can be very persistent.
– Finds great satisfaction in accomplishments with physical labor, especially on the land and favors results over financial reward or public recognition.
– Believes in effort and control, and is certainly goal-oriented, but goals are simple and down to earth.
– Doesn’t like to make waves, but values moral convictions and will not back down when convinced that they are doing “the right thing.” (also causes extreme intolerance in Protectors who cannot appreciate other perspectives)
– Long-term commitment is likely to be a priority since they are faithful and dependable.
– Very career-minded and are highly ambitious in this area
– Thought, consideration and contemplation goes into just about every decision or move they make
– Build a solid foundation for the self and others, and making sure that all is safe and secure.


Game changers have the greatest number of old souls out of all personality types. They anchor all others and are extremely independent in mind and soul. They are multi-talented and with many interests. They are attractive, independent, free-thinking, fast moving, and potentially foot-loose. They are often very sexual beings. They are resenting restrictions and responsibilities while carrying instabilities and unpredictability. They draw our attention to the wonder of life, and it beckons us to appreciate the perception of chaos all around us. So why are they the game changers? Because they walk and spread compassionate action anchoring all others. They go about their lives without building a website, writing a book, talking on stage, but rather walk their talk before doing anything else. How they treat others is their strength in changing the planet. They have an uncompromising demand for freedom in thought and action.

Key Strengths:

– Practice the principle of multiplicity, progression and passion and symbolize the need for change, variety and new growth
– Broadcast and disseminate information like no other
– Very pragmatic and opportunistic and can be very, very persuasive.
– Intellectual, versatile, investigative and imaginative.
– Great flexibility and this allows them to stop something and go off in an entirely different direction.
– Does not hold onto anything that creates monotony in their life and abhors routine and a dull, monotonous occupation is ‘death’ to them
– Ability to adapt and change freely as they are free spirits who have a sense of adventure and curiosity about life.
– Highly inquisitive individuals who consider hands on experience to be the best teacher in life.
– Deeply intelligent, philosophical and spiritually-minded.


The Nurturer represents harmony, balance, sincerity, love, and truth. They are considered the most “harmonious” of all personality types. Creating an environment of peace and harmony is always the strongest impulse. They “light” our path in areas where we require spiritual and mental balance. They beckon us to administer compassion and consciously choose forgiveness in a situation. They are the mothers of the world. They are about sacrificing, caring, healing, protecting and teaching others. No family or community can function without the power of the Nurturer to keep them together and safe. They are the glue that keeps a family or community together. They are full of sympathy, and their sense of justice is well developed. So much in fact that when they perceive injustice, they will sacrifice all their time and effort to set things straight. They are right fighters of peace and harmonious integration. Unfortunately they often fall prey to forms of jealousy and small-mindedness, tending to be more focused on the minor details and self-righteousness while ignoring the bigger picture. Despite this, the Nurturer is actually the most harmonious and stable among the nine personality types.

Key Strengths:
– Symbolizes responsibility and service which they achieve through love, nurturing and protection.
– Innate desire within to bring harmony, peace, justice and truth to all experiences in life.
– Derive their greatest joy from taking care of everyone else and these people feel most useful when they are fixing things.
– Will fight for their ideals and principles on behalf of a deep concern for others
– Strong beliefs and opinions about what they feel is the truth
– Within relationship realms, they are loving, supportive, comforting and accommodating, and make for fair, balanced and stable partners.
– Make great hosts as they are welcoming to all and know how to bring a sense of beauty, balance and love to all family occasions and social gatherings and outings.
– Greatest expression of inner Divinity is through teaching and guidance and are happiest when they see the positive results of their influence blossom in other people.


Resonate with the vibrations and energies of the ‘Collective Consciousness’, faith and spirituality. They deal with esoteric and scholarly aspects of reality. Focused on activation of imagination and manifesting results in our lives through the use of conscious thought and awareness. They carry what can only be defined as a magical vibration with an underlying understanding of the fundamental laws of the universe. They are secretive, mysterious, stand-offish, intuitive and introspective. They tend to have strong psychic tendencies and are natural healers with a core of inner-strength. They are visionaries, seekers, thinkers and searchers of Truth always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. What are termed as conspiracy theorists are some of the greatest Explorers on the planet. Many are interested in the metaphysical, not because they are believers, but because it allows access to the ambiguous, abstract world of questions for which there are no clear answers. They are often spiritual, but not religious and will never stop seeking answers about who they are and why they are here. . Money means nothing to them and will never make a choice or a decision based on an expected financial outcome. Most are not warriors but analysts or strategic planners. More often, however, you will find them in the world of academics and science.

Key Strengths:
– Some of the greatest thinkers and are often very perspective and intuitive.
– Have a love of natural beauty, and flourish when they spend time in natural surroundings, away from civilization.
– Outstanding ability to heal people on the spiritual, emotional and physical levels (work well with Healers).
– Able to intuitively tune into the emotions and needs of others.
– Investigator and inventor whose energy shines in solitude.
– Demand a lot of themselves and others due to their extremely high standards
– Have a love of natural beauty such as flowers, plants, oceans, seas and lakes
– Never satisfied until they can link the known with the unknown, and this leads to a great deal of research, analysis and investigation.
– Knowledge and wisdom are their goals and their quick intelligence and inquiring mind leads them to gather many sources of information simultaneously like no other. They are masters at sourcing knowledge.


Perhaps the most misunderstood of all personality types. When the Karmic equalizer comes knocking, you can be assured that you will reap what you’ve sown. They are practical, realistic and intelligent. They exhibit vibrations of authority and personal power, self-confidence, executive ability, inner-strength, professionalism, management, material freedom, success, good judgement, money. They know the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. They are more comfortable in the realm of material, tangible facts, and will be truly exceptional as soon as they develop their spiritual connection and natural intuition. On the material plane, they are focused on results, often in the form of money, yet do not care much about money for the sake of money. They are not greedy and only see money as a tool, not an end-result. Some of the more recognizable traits of the Equalizer are drive, ambition, authority, efficiency, organization, management, discipline and control. They are goal-oriented, focused, have good judgment, can discriminate and are practical and realists. They are closely related to the Initiators and have strong leadership skills, never shying away from a confrontation. They tend to do well in business and in authority roles. The lessons of this path are many and varied, but generally have to do with learning to overcome adversity and learning about compassion for others through having faced and survived often horrendous life circumstances and/or situations.

Key Strengths:
– Generally content and sure of themselves.
– They know what they want from life and know how they are going to achieve their goals.
– Determined and strong-willed
– Will never betray their own beliefs and principles or another’s trust.
– Most often their life purpose is learning to manipulate money and power – without becoming corrupted in the process.
– Natural leadership qualities, great long term vision and can accumulate a lot of power, prestige and wealth in their lifetimes.
– Have tremendous potential for improving the lives of thousands, perhaps millions of people in practical ways, which is part of their Equalizing abilities
– Self-reliant and independent and do not feel at ease at the mercy of anyone else.
– Support anything that brings beauty, justice, meaning and profit to the world.
– Have an air of success and project an image of being at ease with themselves and their surroundings.

Associated with universal love, eternity and faith and the height of vibrational frequencies. They have a wisdom and responsibility, and the ultimate goal of the Finalizer is to serve humanity. They deal with intellectual power, inventiveness, influence over situations and things. They make us recognize our own internal attributes, and extend these abilities out into the world to make a positive, influential difference. This vibration has come to serve the world and make it a better place for all to live in. They work without motive. Their purpose is for the greatest good of all. They have a protective energy and they have great power and love in their soul. They are aware that they have come with a mission that adheres to the principle of Universal Love and compassion. Intuitively, the Finalizer understands the connections between all of mankind. They get the end game. They see no real difference between their neighbor next door and the person living in a very different culture and environment on the other side of the world. They are the least judgmental of all types, the most tolerant and the most conscious. When circumstances require, they can be a powerful force, strong enough to take over and bend others to their will. Yet they are not leaders in the way both the Initiators and Equalizers are. Their leadership qualities are in the higher realms of philosophy and justice. When they are done with you, they will change your mind and you will see their perspective.

Key Strengths:
– Compassion, selflessness and generosity
– Wisdom, intuition and high idealism
– Charitable, benevolent and altruistic.
– Sympathetic understanding of the under-privileged and under-developed
– Share the aspiration and idealism of the more advanced souls
– The dreamer who feels at home in the realm of the arts, medicine, religion, drama, philosophy and metaphysics.
– Healer and educator, acting always for the benefit of others.
– Looks for solutions from the inspirational, intuitive and creative worlds
– Takes care of everyone else, but needs to learn to speak up when they themselves need help, love and support.

Each of the above are beautifully intertwined, masterfully integrated and perfectly synchronized in millions of people around the world. Each is playing a role in how we integrate the coming waves of energy into human and universal consciousness. All are beautiful and exactly as they should be, so whichever resonates with you, know that they all exist within you.

10 Qualities of Visionary Leaders and Healers in Transitional Times

10 Qualities of Visionary Leaders for Transitional Times - Art by Chris Saunders

9th April 2015

By Gerri Ravyn Stanfield

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Let’s push it, let’s birth it. Let’s create and heal and risk the pain. I love the way you lead the way, the way you risk that disapproving sneer, the distasteful glare. I love the way you dive right into the fear of isolation and rejection, just to become the truth. Sure, we want to be good and to be loved, but following the rules has never unveiled the joy we seek.

Now is not the time to follow the old rules!

The world is in a great initiation, a giant transition. It’s time to question the (de)construction of every wall. Those of us willing to identify as leaders and healers are uniquely poised to help this process. Surviving crisis is written in our DNA, but this time around, the scale is larger.

Many of us have had the luxury of time spent together in friendship, spiritual or professional community, celebrating the cycles of the planet and imagining the world that is to come. Our intention is sent out to create that world where natural resources are valued, everyone has what they need and our relationships with plants and animals are healthy. We want to recognize the interdependence of our lives with other humans. We are surrounded by people who may have a different view of what is coming or who may fear the events that are unfolding around our climate, racial justice and change in economy.

The Great Turning

In their book, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re In Without Going Crazy, Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone outline three paradigms about the way that the world is going right now.

The first is Business as Usual; this seems to be the way that most of Western urbanized culture is going. Governments still recommend economic progress based on overuse of resources; the media still gives the message to consume. No change is recommended anytime soon.

In The Great Unraveling story, it is the opposite. All the dire truths about this time weigh heavy and there is no other direction except for imminent destruction.

The third paradigm, The Great Turning, is about a major transition in lifestyle and actions to shift human culture towards a holistic healing relationship with our planet.

People who are practicing Business as Usual seem to be living in denial about climate changes, extinction of species and extreme economic disparity. When faced with this story, everything can feel hopeless and we find ourselves spending hours searching the internet or distracting ourselves. It is seductive to engage in The Great Unraveling as well. This one feels like we are really doing something by convincing people how bad it is out there. Our urgency feels like the opposite of apathy. Perhaps we grow more desperate, thinking that it is too late for significant change; that we are surely doomed.

In healing leadership, we continue to revisit The Great Turning as a possibility for the future. We share what is so painful and exciting about being alive right now. We remember what is worth fighting for and loving; and what qualities leaders need in the real world to bring The Great Turning to life.

Qualities of Visionary Leaders and Healers

Capacity For Holding Grief.

We are in a time where many things are changing and being lost. Sometimes, the growth on the other side of loss isn’t immediately obvious. Our opportunities to sit with people who are in distress may increase.

In many of the healing arts, there are techniques around energetic shielding to effectively help people process deep emotions without taking them on ourselves. Grief sometimes elicits anger, anxiety or fear which can be difficult to support. The tendency can be to try and ‘fix it’ so the person will stop expressing the emotion we perceive as negative. In Chinese medicine, all emotions move qi (life force) through us. Emotions are in service to our health and they will not be endless. When people feel things intensely, we can learn to give them space and empathy. We cannot fix it and sometimes what people want is to be physically or emotionally held so that they can keep going.

If you do not feel comfortable around heavy emotions, ask yourself what is hard for you about it. How can you grow your capacity to hold people in transformation? What are the resources in your community to help people process loss and anger?

10 Qualities of Visionary Leaders for Transitional Times - Art by Chris SaundersCapacity For Rejuvenation.

Just as we expand our ability to hold suffering, it is also necessary to become excellent at rejuvenation. At a memorial service for my friend, Jim Brandau, we were told that one of Jim’s great mottos was a rule from the Running of the Bulls festival in Pamplona, Spain. “All participants are required to lend to the joy of the fiesta.” Our joy matters now more than ever.

One of the first signs of trouble in an activist campaign is when we lose enthusiasm. As leaders, we are responsible for knowing what brings us pleasure, how we can find respite. Our self care becomes more vital than ever. Because passion and motivation are such wonderful qualities in leaders, we must be ever seeking inspiration.

What are ten practices that refill you? Who are the people or beings who help you relax, reconnect with resources and with yourself?

Ability to Listen and Synthesize.

We all love leaders who have brilliant ideas and communicate them in a succinct way. Even more coveted is the ability to synthesize what has been said. Leaders who release attachment to their own ideas and draw together the passionate opinions of others are needed. One of us is rarely as brilliant as all of us and the marriage of different ideas is a way to achieve innovative solutions. It is great to restate people’s words in a group, ensuring that everyone understands what is being said and allowing individuals to edit their own offering. Crafty leaders also begin to notice when folks are saying similar things and make proposals.

Mediation Skills.

I am an unapologetic fan of Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication. His assertion that every human being has the same needs is revolutionary. I have seen his system bring more empathy and ability for people in serious conflict to reconnect than any other. We have conflict when an underlying need of ours is not being met. Leaders can use NVC (or another comparable system) to assess what unmet need is causing the upset in a group and help to meet the need if possible. When leaders seek conflict resolution training, we all have a better chance of moving forward.

Intimate Relationship With Our Challenges.

Thank goodness we are imperfect. It is a lifelong struggle to accept this about ourselves and in leadership, it is amplified. Our ability to be aware of our own challenges and to be kind to ourselves around the ways that we make mistakes is imperative. I recommend making a list of tendencies that sometimes feel like barriers to success. Along with a commitment to work on them, give yourself permission to be an imperfect leader. Ask a trusted mentor to be ‘on call’ to give a reality check if they see your challenges becoming a problem. It can be freeing to give your challenges names, faces and personalities. Now, when I hear my Rigid Controller (RC for short) start to speak inside my head, I have much more empathy for myself and ability to edit what that part of me has to say.

Ability To Laugh At Ourselves.

We are funny monkeys! We do strange and outrageous things. The more we relax and give a good guffaw when we can’t control things, the easier it is to lead others in doing the same. I love it when anyone in leadership asks for a “do over” when they do something that they didn’t intend. The more sense of humor that is displayed, the more my respect grows. Taking ourselves too seriously has got to go.

Ability to Apologize When Our Impact Does Not Meet Intention.

Cedar Barstow emphasizes that even with the purest intention, what we say or do may still feel offensive. We hate that. We want to explain and excuse ourselves. We want people to think well of us. Often, the best thing to do is just apologize. It can be the most disarming thing. More information from you may be welcome after that or not. I will sometimes even get advice about another way that it could have been said or done to achieve the impact that I want. Leading with an authentic apology when something has gone awry, rather than a defense, is one of the best moves a leader can make.

Showing the Vulnerability That Builds Trust.

We want to see ourselves in our leaders. It is difficult to see ourselves in people who appear to be perfect. I consistently get feedback that writing or telling stories about overcoming obstacles in my life or the places where I still struggle are helpful to others. We feel hopeful when we see people we admire be vulnerable. We trust them more. It awakens the mammal in us. People want to know how you arrived where you are.  There is an art to sharing your personal stories. Oversharing from the center of your unprocessed painful experience might cause mistrust. However, giving some personal details about what you are experiencing now or what you have been through to get where you are today will help us connect to you.

Embracing Paradox.

Truth is not simple these days. Leaders who can do the mental gymnastics of holding two opposing truths simultaneously are in demand. The ocean levels are rising and there are millions of organizations creating healing and justice in the world. How can we hold disparate realities as being relevant and accurate?  There is a way to shift our perception of the world to support our actions and resolve and it will require a strong relationship to holding paradox.

Stress Relief Techniques.

The Dalai Lama recently said that humans are in a pandemic of anxiety and depression. While this may be appropriate given what is happening to our planet, it can keep us helpless. Our ability to feel deeply and move our emotions through us is paramount. What are the ways we can support ourselves and each other in doing this? This is connected to our capacity for rejuvenation but also necessary just to keep moving, to get out of bed in the morning. Our media and our circumstances keep our nervous system in constant sympathetic arousal. We must find breathing techniques, movement, exercise, and relaxation, anything to get us back to our creative brain and out of reaction. What does this for you?

10 Qualities of Visionary Leaders for Transitional Times - Art by Chris Saunders

Contributing to the Transition

One of our challenges is to take our wisdom into a world that may not understand what we do. People may be repulsed or frightened by our beliefs or the words we use to self identify. We must not be deterred. The skills we have are desperately needed. People will sense who you are and ask you to assist in their crisis, facilitate their meetings, interpret their dreams, perform their memorial service, create art or ritual for them, settle their arguments, or answer their questions about spirituality or medicine for these times. How will you respond?

Carolyn Raffensperger asks a provocative question in an interview with Derek Jensen. “What is the biggest and most important problem in the world that you can [help to] solve with your unique skills and abilities?” I pose this question to all current and potential leaders and healers. It helps us face the size of the transition with which we are dealing but also to see our distinctive contribution to it.

Sometimes, our protest results in a policy change, our patient recovers, our kids learn something, our client feels better, our students understand; we make a visible difference that we can acknowledge. Those are great moments, but our attachment to having them happen frequently is problematic. Sometimes we have to do the work that is directly in front of us and not see the results of our actions. Instead, we may have to trust that our children, students, or some descendent in the future may be touched by what we do. We can continue to support each other and hold the vision. There is no certainty about where we are going. All we can do is exactly what is in front of us and contribute as much as possible to the joy of the ongoing fiesta unfolding around us.

I suspect we have enough of everything we need to make this transition. Let’s keep going. Squeeze out that last drop of wonder in the tube. Stop clenching and clawing and clamping down. Open your chest, your heart, your lower back, your whole life. Live audaciously all the way to the edge and I will too.


Your Color Vibe for Friday – 04/03

Friday, April 3:   Intense Blue

Things are not going to turn out the way you were attempting to make them happen. That is a lesson right now for all. When you are working with control ion a very self-centered direction, it can fall back upon you. It can trip you up. True control lies in letting go of control, in handing it over to the Universal Consciousness, to God/Goddess, to The One. By being in harmony with All That Is, you will find that all your desires begin to take shape according to your best interests and highest good. Living in this dimension, oftentimes we forget that we are part of a larger whole. Our perspectives get skewed. By opening to the truth of it all, in going with the flow, in accepting and allowing, things become easier and manifestation happens more quickly, and you know you are not alone.


Moving into Full Spectrum Consciousness

The New Paradigm: The Birth of a Full Spectrum Body-Based Consciousness

Birth of a Full Spectrum Body-Based Consciousness30th April 2014

By Indra (Mona)

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

I keep hearing that the “new paradigm” of living is about embracing the “higher spirit” realms and moving away from “lower density” realms. Firstly, how is this new? We are all clear that teachers and sages have berated the “material world” since time immemorial. 

It’s unfortunate that we have been terming all that has been made manifest in form as being an “illusion”. I find that this is, bar none, the most archaic paradigm in existence to date, because in calling the physical an “illusion”, there is clearly a judgment and a rejection of it.

Yet we have all chosen to be here now in this physical experience, which means that in actually negating the physical and more dense matter, we are, in fact, creating an obstacle for our soul to do its work of choice. We are negating the very purpose of our lives on this planet!

Allow me to say more. The physical is the feminine. It is all that is manifested in the body. The masculine is the divine seed/ideas. It is spirit, it is consciousness… the higher/upper frequencies. The feminine, through a process of sustainably feeding, nurturing, and loving even ONE of several million seeds, brings that seed’s potential into “reality” by shaping it into its denser physical form.

That which has already been birthed into the physical reality is, in fact, highly esteemed. It is the super code, the strongest frequency; the healthiest sperm. Instead of loving all that has been made manifest — revering it, even — we mostly suppress, reject, and hate on it. As an example, we collectively feel that our connection with resources, finances, and money is forced. We seem to hold the viewpoint of these things as being an unfortunate “lower vibration”, instead of removing the judgment and shifting our perspective to see them simply as they are:  Something solid, created; manifested.

 Said another way, the new paradigm of living is not about moving away from the “lower density” paradigm to the “spirit based” paradigm. This is incomplete! What is required is that the realm of the divine feminine — the physical manifested form of ALL things — be regarded as EQUALLY as important as that of the divine masculine, that which is the lighter, inspiration-based, spirit realm. Endless ideas exist within the upper masculine realms, yet those ideas do not have the power or the energy to be mobilized or manifested. The new paradigm will come when we can honor the divine feminine’s role and see that everything that is manifested into reality IS reality and NOT an illusion.

Full Spectrum Body-Based Consciousness

Let’s delve into this further. The theory goes that everything in the physical reality is ‪illusory — such as your body — since it is not eternal. Our Spirits are eternal, yes. So suffice it to say, that which is UNmanifest is eternal because it never manifested — hence of a higher order here. And that which is manifest is temporary — hence of a lower order. There seems to be something wrong with this picture, don’t you think? It’s faulty logic.

Let it also be considered that the lessons we learn and integrate on the physical level are eternal to the spirit, so our overall experience is ultimately and unequivocally eternal. All is eternal here. Nothing is illusory. Both are necessary. Both are to be acknowledged as being part of the whole.

Here’s my hard-won take on it all. I feel that in all of this talk about “non-duality”, we have actually missed something. We have missed the role of PREPARING the body so that it can hold the eternal light of the spirit. If a spirt-based existence ever were to become a reality, it will happen when the body is strong enough to anchor eternal light into the physical. All other endears are simply a conceptual and mental understanding of a very tangible, structural, universal shift in consciousness. The mental understanding alone, divorced from the corporeal shift, is a glorified from of psycho babble!

Truth:  The new paradigm is about going from the spirit-based dominance to a more balanced FULL SPECTRUM experience of both the Higher and Lower… both the masculine and feminine in perfect balance. Perhaps in the interim there is an extra step… to awaken the divine feminine by fully activating the body to integrate more of the divine masculine. When we honor all that has been made manifest, and when we give up rejecting the powerful and essential element of the feminine as an illusion, we then remove the insult to the human race.

It is time to stop cutting ourselves off from the source of energy from the waist down… it’s time to pop the illusory balloon! It’s time to descend into the life and the dimension we have chosen. It’s time to stop the war we have declared against the body. Here now, let us accept the role of the lower density as a vital part of the equation in creating life on this planet as balanced, sustainable, and free from creative angst. Here now, let us honor the Physical, the Lower Density Realm, the Divine Feminine.

Once we can see the value and connection of the interplay of consciousness and the body, we will then be able to evolve past ALL of our struggles here in this third dimension. The challenges of the physical dimension will be a thing of the past when we accept the incredible intelligence and power of the body.

I believe when this happens, we will move from a thought-based navigation system to a full-spectrum sensation-based navigation system, the place from which we make choices not based just on consciousness from the higher frequencies, but ALSO the practical and “sound” advice from the BODY about the potential of its creation within the physical universe. This powerful shift in understanding and embracing FULL SPECTRUM is what consciousness truly is, I believe, and the ultimate expression of our New Paradigm… the most authentic of any other to date!


Your Color Vibe for Friday, 2/28

Friday, February 28:    Golden Amber

Things are definitely looking better, but whether this is because they are actually better or because you have changed how you are seeing them is for you to decide.  There are more opportunities coming your way today.  You will also be getting some news about something that you are working on, a project, a sale, a proposal, who knows!  The day also begins some challenges.  They are there for you to decide just how it is you are choosing to go forward in this new energy.  There is a dimensional shift happening, and if you are choosing to move forward, then many so-called rules and expectations will be changing.  The disconnect between cause and effect will become more obvious so sometimes the totally irrational, illogical is the best way to deal with things.

PS:  Mercury Goes Direct Today, but while we are still in that energy, step back from too much activity.

Your Color VIbe for Mondya, 10/14

Monday, October  14:    Blue-Green

If you are one of those who is easily distracted, then this can be a tough day for you.  There are a lot of things swirling around in the energies today, and this is leading to many fits and starts.  You can find yourself with a strong purpose going somewhere to do something, get something, and just in that instant forget completely what it was that you were thinking of doing.  Conversations can be difficult as subject lines will blur and the gist will go off on incredible tangents.  Notice when these things are happening, when you see the movement in the periphery of your vision.  All of these things are indications of the direction in which things are going.  Knowing what that is can assist you in moving forward.


Your Overall Weekly Chromoscope 10/13-19

October 13-19:

The theme this week “Really! Who do you think you are”.  So be ready to be surprised by things said and happening and be equally prepared to stand up for WHO you are.  Oh, and this will be going on all over this week, personally, locally, statewide, countrywide, globally, and universally.  Hang on, keep your eyes open, and look for the AHA’s!


Overall Color for the Week:  Zephyr Blue

And yes, the winds will be blowing this week.  Be alert as things shift and move around and through you.  It is very, very important to start out each day grounded and centered this week, lest you find yourself blown away by what is presenting around you.  There is much that you will be seeing this week.  In terms of relationships, things can become clear and questions answered in regard to people with who you have been interacting yet always having that uncertainty about.  This week you will get them, and you will need to be willing and able to take action upon what you are hearing, sensing, and seeing.  Not everything is on the surface, so trust your intuition as you navigate your world.  Listen to its hints and urgings.  This can be critical in terms of potential situations that might not be the most positive for you.  This is a week also for cloaking.  This means that it is not well to say everything that you wish to.  The time is not right for giving opinions. You will find much that you can lean much by paying attention to slips of the tongue and things you seeing that are out of context.  This is a week that can challenge your sense of what is real and what is illusion.  There can be some feelings tied to these, and it is best always to allow the emotions to pour forth when they arise.  Stuffing them down can lead to a kind of emotional dyspepsia.  This is not a week for making any large and/or life changing decisions.  The energies are too erratic.  There is not enough information that has been unveiled.  Things can be rocky around you this week, but it is all to let you know that you have the power to get through what is happening, you have the vision to see things for what they are, and you have the choice as to what you will do about all of this.  Be wise.  Trust your inner knowing.  Act from your core, and see with the eyes of the heart.  Truth was never meant to be hidden.

On the larger scale, there will be a long of hot air blowing around.  Some will be bluff, while some will be deadly serious.  It will be interesting to see how the politicos and governmental types deal with all of this.  It seems, unfortunately, that they are wanting to blame the people, the masses, if you will, for the problems that they have created.  Because of this, there can be some really unsettling actions on the parts of various governments in relation to acts of the people, demonstrations.  There can be some issues with something with air travel that can cause a general uproar.  Meanwhile, the Earth, herself, will be shifting this week also.  There can be some rather large storms developing unexpectedly out of small beginnings.  There can be some unusual earth movements in places where they traditionally have not occurred.  Centers of countries will be prime locations for these things.  Also, it is good to take a look at the ley lines and the energetic portals on the Earth to get a sense of the patterning that is behind this.  Patterns are falling into place more and more, and it is important to be aware of this right now.  When one thing happens, and it is followed by another that seems somewhat oddly coincidental, this is the time to sit down and look at what and where things are happening.  Time is shifting also, so expect deadlines and schedules to be skewed.  There is a new kind of germ appearing right now which can affect many people.  It is important to stay within and strong in your sense of WHO you are and listen to what your physicality is telling you.  This is a time of choices, and many choices will be made this week.  The time spiral is intersecting with a new dimensional ray.  Things cannot be the same.  The galactic energy is here, and will be evinced in some interesting celestial events.  Look to the skies.  There is much happening there, and not just those scary Blackhawk copters buzzing metropolitan areas.  The skies hold a new kind of watcher, one that will become more obvious as the year winds down.



Your Color Vibe for 9/21

Saturday, September 21:    Deep Forest Blue

Today brings a beginning to the next round of changes.  There can be some bumps along the road and some surprises.  Deal with each things as it arises and do not hold onto it after it has passed.  This is truly a day for enjoyment of the scenery as the Autumnal Equinox approaches and the light continues to fade.  Hidden in the depths of the forest is a new kind of magic, a magic that has been gestating for quite some time now; a magic that is ready to come forth to the light where it can show its wonder bit by bit as it continues to develop and mature.  The time of miracles is approaching, and you will feel this today.  Look towards the synchronicities that occur, the bits of déjà vu, the things that fall into your path.  They are not accidental.  Know that in all of this, you remain the creator.
