Uniquely Arrayed

Uniquely Arrayed

 

Snowflake background

 

Each one of our personal relationships with our Creator is as unique as each snowflake that dances upon this earthen realm.

Though our Creator is unchanging and constant because his very essence is truth and perfect love, our individual relationships with him vary as much as the legendary uniqueness of snowflakes. Like snowflakes, the basic elements that construct our relationships may be similar, but how they are expressed through the interaction of our individuality and his nature creates a distinctiveness of its own particular beauty and glory. Thus, we each wear the expressions of the nature of our relationship to our Creator. And as our relationship deepens, expands and grows so does our uniqueness because his love fosters growth, honor and freedom in the expressions of our individuality.

Our individuality expands through an increasing pure love in our lives. Love releases us from the fears, judgments and pride that bind us to conformity. It expands our personality as it flows in and through it, where as all that is contrary to love stifles us. It is love that develops our individuality, and through love we find our truest expressions.

Not only is our individuality expressed in our relationship, but also our Creator radiants a unique expression through each relationship. Thus, our intimate connections with him reflect his unlimited expressions of his nature and characteristics. This gift is our personal sacred treasure as it is his.

In this awareness, we begin to perceive the infinite value that each one of us possesses. When we perceive this value, we begin to see others and ourselves arrayed in this boundless worth … as beautiful snowflakes.

Transforming Connection

Transforming Connection

 

 

Monarch Butterfly stages 02

 

The uppermost place is encountered in our innermost place.

To connect to “above” is found by connecting deep within. This connection moves us into and through a beautiful transformation of our soul. When we are ready through the infusion of truth and love, we make our final severance from the foundations that we use to traverse upon and our soul experiences a metamorphosis.

This higher or inner connection grants us new perspectives as light starts to fill what was darkened by illusion. Fear, judgments, and pride begin to fall away as a purity of love not seen before, yet was always there, takes their place in our humble abodes. By the workings of this love, we experience a welcomed harmony forming within. In the movement of change, our bodies, which are the expressions of our souls, reflect an increasing radiance as love’s light starts to fill us from within.

With increasing clarity, the eyes of our soul begin to see our Father as he truly is, and as a result we start to see ourselves as we truly are – beloved, cherished and precious in his sight as he is to us. We are the beautiful workmanship of his loving hands. In this awareness, our judgments of our souls’ progressions and others’ fade. We each uniquely experience the journey of a soul who is born in darkness and is moving into the light. Though unique, the creative force of change is the same, divine love enfolding truth. As we honor ourselves and others’ stages of transformation guided by our Father’s all-knowing hand, we learn, inspire, and grow and in this our love expands within and without.

Never Alone

The Whispers of our Spiritual Parent

Our Spiritual Parent, the origin and home of our souls, has been talking to us our entire lives. I’ve heard his quiet whispering for as long as I can remember. Telling me I shouldn’t go that way or I should go this way. Sometimes I listened, often I didn’t. Others’ voices seemed more compelling, even though deep down I knew better. He was the one who truly knew best and always led me with a pure love. Sometimes I got so use to tuning him out, it was hard to hear. But, he has always been with me and leading me in what was best for my soul and others.

His whispers into our soul’s ear is evidence to his constant, unchanging, perfect and pure love having always been with us. We were never left alone no matter where we were or the condition of our soul. Nothing can separate us from his love. We are his beloved offspring regardless of our soul condition, and his endless loving whispers remind of us of this truth of who we truly are and his love for us.

I’m going through some changes. They are such that it makes it difficult to write because the foundation from what I write from is shifting. I’m usually very consistent in my posting, so I wanted you to know.

More Love, More Power

More Love is More Power

We are all unique and different, and that makes us irreplaceable and priceless in our role in this creation.

We look different, think different, and act different. We perceive differently, learn differently, and respond differently. We experience life differently and have different experiences. We make different choices and enjoy different things. We express differently and speak differently. By honoring other’s individuality as well as our own, we honor our Creator.

Yet, we are all similar in that we love to be loved. And when we love, we and others abide in a peace and joy inwardly and outwardly. Love is the power that fuels an abundant life. And this power flows from our heavenly Father, the source of love, and into us so that we can generously express tenderness, care, honor and appreciation amongst all our differences, and enjoy the cornucopia of individuality of our Father’s creation.

“Because You Loved Me”

“Because You Loved Me”

~ Celion Dion

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

In reflection of my journey.

I’m eternally grateful for the love of my heavenly Father, His beloved son, and my soulmate.

Transfer of Consciousness

Transfer of Consciousness:

The Rising Morning Star

 

space

Upon our soul incarnating into this mortal realm, our consciousness that is housed within our soul is a subset of the mass consciousness of humankind. This consciousness creates what we perceive and then in our “free-will” we choose how to respond, which in turn creates certain effects. Though, until we know the divine love of our heavenly Father, the only choices we have are bound and limited to the constructs of this consciousness. And as we come to know divine love, we realize how limiting they are. Yet a true choice does exist, because within this mass consciousness there is a way to connect to the consciousness (soul) of our Father and to start to learn and be directed by his consciousness instead, thus become truly alive. This is what Christ Jesus created for us, the narrow way through the narrow gate, and he leads us if we will follow. Divine love always provides a way. And, once our choice for divine love is made, our journey really begins.

This mass consciousness is in contradiction to the pure consciousness of our Father, for it exists separate from him. Because he is life, and this consciousness is separate from that life, it’s a consciousness of death. Death is separation from divine love. Without divine love, thus truth, there is error, which creates pain, suffering, hardship, affliction, fear, decay, destruction, and all the descriptors of death. It’s full of the “awareness” of humankind that is shaped in separation from our Father’s divine love and truth. Thus it contains humankind’s limitations, false judgments, illusions, lies, lusts, foolishness, corrupted desires, etc. This consciousness is the controller of our “self-made” mind.

This realm of consciousness is a simulated, unreal, dream state, and dead state. In divine love, this place can’t exist as something real. As we are learning through quantum physics, it is like a hologram, thus like a dream state. It’s a type of virtual reality serving a purpose in the construction of our soul. In separation from life, nothing can exist, only an illusion. But it’s a purposeful illusion, or it wouldn’t exist at all. This is the first part of our journey of being made into souls of light. It is serving a multitude of purposes, which above all is our ability to abide in divine love. Thus, this temporary unreal reality isn’t our permanent residence. It’s only a temporal experience that serves to lead us into a true oneness with our heavenly Father, thus into immortality as his eternal child.

The way we connect to our heavenly Father in an oneness is through and by divine love. For us to possess divine love, we require “free-will” so we have a choice to love because love is always voluntary. Further, we require our own individuality, which flows out of “free-will”. Only when we possess individuality can we receive and give love, otherwise, there is  no giver and no receiver. This unreal consciousness simulation plays a role in establishing both of these, among other things. This entire experience has the final end of creating us to be an extension of our Father by being one with him through divine love and by his will absorbing our will (which we willing desire by going through this experience and seeing what our will separate from his perfect will creates). Thus we become true children reflecting our Father’s eternal soul of divine love. Upon realizing our purpose here, we start heading down the path and for the doorway out instead of being distracted by the unreal reality within.

The new birth of our soul as a soul of light is when we are no longer governed by this mass consciousness of humankind. Through the workings of the spirit of truth and divine love, we become detached from that mass consciousness little by little. Until finally this connection dies through the death to death, which Christ Jesus made possible by entering death himself and defeating it. In this final severance, we are able to connect to the consciousness of our Father, because a place for him to dwell within us has been made, a temple without hands. His temple is our soul constructed of his truth and love that is now able to receive him, which is to receive the inflow of his consciousness, his will, or his governance over our will. When we experience his will as ours, it is our complete freedom, for he desires to give us everything beautiful, joyous, magnificent and glorious. Above all he desires to give us his endless love, which we are now able to receive and give because of this journey of the soul we’ve traversed. And above all we desire to give him divine love, thus completing a true unbreakable eternal bond. So we are thankful for the journey, but also very thankful when this part of it draws to an end and the turning point into life is upon us.

This transformation into our Father’s likeness starts within our soul as we begin gaining the constructs of truth and divine love that reflect the consciousness of our Father, thus allowing us to receive the inflow of his consciousness within our soul, thus as a subset of his. Overtime as we continue to grow within our soul in this new way, we start to completely change on the inside with hints reflecting on the outside, like a woman starting to reveal a child growing in her womb. But because we are still connected to the mass consciousness our transforming soul remains under the flesh veil. We are being built to hold the consciousness of our Father, and he moves in when the temple is finished, or in other words when our soul is formed to the extent that we can contain and be moved by his pure consciousness.

Thus during this process, we experience a very deep purification down to our thoughts and desires, which in turn changes many of our habits, our lifestyle, the nature of our relationships, our choices, our perspectives, everything. During this process, we become very separate from the ways of the consciousness of humankind. This consciousness governs us less and less and the constructs of divine truth and love more and more. As we leave the reality constructed by the consciousness of humankind behind, it feels like being a caterpillar in a cocoon detached from the rest of the reality. And thus, our interaction with the unreal consciousness is very limited.

Everything of the unreal consciousness is stripped away until all that remains are the truths and love constructed in us by the spirit of truth and divine love. We experience a very powerful singular desire to be governed by his will and one with his divine love and that pushes us through the death to death, which is also the birth of our soul of light. And then the last chord or connection to the mass consciousness is cut and we are truly set free to arise as a new creation completed governed by the consciousness of loving heavenly Father, thus become children of his reflection.

In this final severance, we are completed, though ever expanding, as his temple made through the spirit of truth and divine love. In this, an eternal embrace in divine love is established between our heavenly Father and us, his beloved children. Then a transfer takes place between being governed by the mass consciousness and our Father’s consciousness. Hence, our new birth is completed. He fills his temple, our newly constructed soul. His will absorbs our will, his breath is our breath, and our consciousness is a subset of his consciousness. We are truly alive and awaken from the sleep of death. We are resurrected from the dead as we are no longer directed by the death state of the old consciousness trapped in error.

The entrance of this divine consciousness into our prepared soul is the morning star rising in our hearts. It’s the light of life that causes us to grow for eternity in the wonderments of our Father’s will expressed through our individuality and our love, which is now one with his.

Our Reflective Reality

Our Reflective Reality

A Hall of Mirrors

 

Do to others as you want done to you.

What you do to others, you do to yourself. What you do to yourself, you do to others.

Our perceived reality reflects the state of our soul. What we do to ourselves we are doing to others. What we do to others, we are doing to ourselves. What we give out is what we receive. What we receive is what we give out. We live in a hall of mirrors. The reality that we perceive is reflective of the state of our soul. The state of our soul is reflected in our reality. This world isn’t what most think, it is much more personalized because of the higher purpose it serves.

For example, if we judge others it’s because we judge ourselves, thus we absorb the judgments of others. Otherwise, others’ judgments roll off us because we realize they are the projections of their own self-judgments. If we are dishonest with others, it’s because we are dishonest with ourselves, and we become caught in the snares of another’s dishonesty. Otherwise, another’s dishonesty has no ill effects upon our reality. If we give hypocritical love it’s because we don’t have a true love within ourselves thus we have to “fake” it, and in turn we are the recipients of another’s hypocritical love. Otherwise, we possess a growing honest love within our relationships and interactions, and the insincere relationships fade away. If we extend a sincere love to others it’s because we have true love within us, and we receive a sincerity of care from others to the extent they are aware and able.

This hall of mirror effect includes the law of attraction, but it goes much deeper. The law of attraction entails attracting into our perceived reality certain people, situations, physical elements, etc based on our soul condition and what we truly project and give (not what we pretend to be or give). This is why as we significantly change, our friendships often change. Our reflective reality incorporates this law, but what fashions our reality goes much deeper. Our perceived reality is governed by the state of our soul, which is constructed of our consciousness, or awareness.

Soul = consciousness = awareness = truths we possess or lack = love we possess or lack

We each have our own perceived reality. I see a situation one way and you see the same situation a different way. Look in your reality. What do you see? Your perception includes two basic elements: 1. what your consciousness (awareness or lack of) experiences amongst the elements of the environment and 2. your judgments about those experiences.

Since our awareness is constantly changing however little or great, our current reality reveals the current state of our soul. Our soul is mutable because our awareness is changeable. Whenever we learn something new, it changes our awareness, which changes our soul projection. Our soul is in a constant state of fluctuation, however great or small. Thus, our perceived reality is fluid and constantly changing, and can be changed. Nothing is fixed. There is constant motion because all is energy. What affects that motion is the state of our soul, our consciousness, and the energy it houses, which is either of love or fear.

A higher consciousness (more developed soul condition) is one with more awareness. Awareness expands by sincere love. The more love within our soul, the greater our awareness thus we operate with a higher level of consciousness. Love puts us in the frameworks of truth, thus why we have more awareness.

One significant roadblock to desirable change in our soul thus reality is blame, (also expressed in self-pity, victimization of self, un-forgiveness, revenge, anger, condescending judging, prideful arrogance). When we blame we don’t take responsibility for what our reality is reflecting back to us, but we put it upon another. This blinds us so we don’t gain the increased awareness that will change our reality that we are blaming other(s) about. But as we eradicate blame from our lives by humbling ourselves to learn, we learn and this expands our awareness, which heightens our consciousness. Thus, our perceived reality is altered.

Our level of soul development determines what we experience in our reality. If you’ve gone through soulful changes in your life, then you have witnessed this dynamic. Because our reality is like a mirror as it reflects what our soul projects, as we change from the soul outward, our reality reflects those changes.

Once this truth is understood and accepted, then there is much to learn from everything around us. Ultimately our perceived reality is housed within the care of our heavenly Father, our Creator. He desires us to learn and grow into an oneness with him, so our mortal experience is crafted in this reflective way to help us learn and grow. No one sees our reality as we do. We see it that way for a reason, for there are multiple views we could have of it. If we are willing to learn, there is much to learn. When we open our soul perceptions and are willing to listen to what underlies our situations, interactions and relationships, then there is always something for us to learn. We never know as we ought, so we can always learn. As we grow in awareness, we grow in our ability to perceive these lessons, which continues to expand our awareness, which effects our perceived reality.

Now we see the impact of this wisdom, “do to others as you want done to you.” This is harder to do than one might think. It takes expanding awareness, humility, and a willingness to change in growing kindness, honor, and respect. It requires a willingness to forgive, and many other soulful qualities that sometimes don’t come easy when pride and fear fill our consciousness. But with receipt of divine love into our soul, these hinderances are overcome.

Don’t most of us desire to give and receive a sincere unchanging love; kindness, consideration, compassion, and understanding? If we truly desire to give and receive love, then we will grow in the awareness of this love and it will become a part of our reality. The capacity to love as we desire and to receive love as we desire comes from an oneness with the Source of love, our heavenly Father. Our consciousness is bound in limitations, but in establishing an oneness with him, thus his consciousness, we become limitless in our capacity to grow and transform, thus to expand in love.

The starting place to gaining a reflection we desire is to know and accept the divine love of our heavenly Father. This love creates an increasing magnificent reflection. It doesn’t come speedily, because it changes our soul in the process, but it comes. And when the reflection comes through an oneness with him, it is of his creation, thus it is our rest. To strive to develop a consciousness of true love apart from him is an endless cycle of frustration, but with him it is an experience of growth and expansion. If we want to be reflective of divine love, then we must return to the Source of divine love; our first love, the love from which we came, and become a subset of his perfect consciousness.
