Getting to the Heart Excerpt 1

Letting Go

We have been taught to believe, that letting go means to push away or suppress. However, true letting go is a process of integration and healing.

Letting go can be a misleading statement because it gives the impression of separation. By integrating a situation that involves you, another person, or a circumstance in life, means to come to terms with it. We can only come to terms with something when we understand it. When we understand the purpose of our life experiences we are able to accept them, thereby releasing our emotional attachment. Learning to embrace our issues in this way allows us to take them within ourselves and integrate them.

Once our emotions are understood and integrated our judgments about ourselves and others begin to dissolve. Where there is clarity and understanding, problems can not germinate.

What we see on the outside of ourselves is a reflection of what is happening on the inside. Interacting with others is always a way of interacting with ourself. When interaction brings up feelings within us that we do not like, we should search inside to see why this is occurring. We should view others in our lives as our mirrors.

Many people distance and isolate themselves from others, creating emotional isolation.

Finding ourselves disoriented and disorganized, using the outside as a reflection of the inside, shows we are feeling how on the inside?

Realizing that you are the only true problem in your life allows you to realize the truth of who you are. Only through self-examination can emotions and feelings be healed and problems solved.

Our habits accepted beliefs and behaviors-our inner walls-all play a part in who we are. Take for example, the critical part of our self, which loves to run rampant. This part of self is continually judging and criticizing self and others. This behavior can become quite destructive. It often leads to an out-of-balance, superhuman, perfectionist complex. It has become the norm to single out what is imperfect about another or oneself rather than identifying what is unique and special. This commonly leads to pettiness and competition.

We find it is much easier to accept others when we like and accept ourselves. Being critical and judgmental are roadblocks in the path of learning to love.

We can require that others honor us in the same way that we honor our self by treating them as we wish to be treated. As we become honest with ourselves and reflect our own attitudes and actions, we see the mirrors that others play in our life.

Getting to the Heart Excerpt 2


The past, present, and future exist within one another. They are interconnected within us and are what make up the picture of ourselves and life. We cannot leave behind the past simply "not thinking "about it. We believe we can put something out of our mind by stuffing the emotion of it deep inside somewhere. Stuffing our emotions year after year can cause one to feel alienated and distant. It's all right to put our feelings on the back burner for a little while but too often we forget to bring them back to the foreground. We can now lose perspective on how others around us might be feeling as well.

How well we process and understand our feelings determines our emotional health. Due to the emotional distress most individuals have suffered in their lives they believe themselves unable to trust their feeling self.

When we push the emotions deep into the recesses of our being we isolate and insulate, losing our ability to deal with the intimate emotional situations in our personal lives. This in turn causes us loss in our ability to use logic and reason to resolve emotional situations in our lives.

In order to achieve good health or peace of mind it is necessary for us to bring our emotions into balance w

All spiritual traditions have spoken of the ultimate goal of meditation. It has been called Enlightenment; Self Realization; God Realization; Nirvana; Cosmic Consciousness; Christ Consciousness; Buddhahood; etc. Currently, the term "Ascension" is emerging in our collective consciousness to refer to this goal. So, for consistency, we will use that term. What then, is Ascension?

Ascension is:

* The goal of our individual evolution, and the collective evolution of humanity... it is each soul's destiny.

* A level of consciousness in which we experience permanent union with our Higher Self and the Universal Spirit... oneness with all Life.

* Becoming our highest possible self... Learning to fully express our creative powers and spiritual capabilities within the challenging conditions of physical reality.

* Raising our vibration to a higher frequency...closer to that of the light of Spirit.

* Expanding our perception beyond our limited physical reality to include limitless spiritual reality.

* A state of permanent peace, joy, and freedom from limitation and suffering.

* Becoming an instrument of Universal Light, Love, Wisdom, and Power.

* Expanding the role we are playing within this ever-unfolding universal drama.

* Taking our place among the assembly of ascended beings from all cultures who have reached this evolutionary stage.

* Coming home.

Preparing for Ascension

Planet Earth and humanity are currently going through an extraordinary consciousness shift... a quantum leap to a higher, more enlightened state of being. You can choose to go with the flow of this evolutionary current - thus facilitating your ascension process - by preparing yourself for a new and higher level of consciousness. If you choose to do so, here are some valuable tips to assist you.

Connect with your inner Spirit daily...
in silent meditation or prayer.

Stay in the Light.
Remember as often as you can throughout the day, (when your mind is not fully engaged) to shift your attention back to the light of your calm inner Spirit.

Develop some degree of spiritual non-attachment.
The more weight you give the world, the heavier it is to carry.

Strengthen your energy circuitry, so that you can conduct the higher spiritual energies.
This can be done through regular exercise, physical work, or energy body exercises, such as Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gong, etc.

Keep peeling away the internal layers of physical & emotional toxins, & limiting beliefs...
through meditation & other transformational tools available for this.

Learn to attune to your higher guidance.

Lighten up
Regular meditation & other spiritual practices refine your energy, raising your vibration closer to the highest vibration of divine light. Be receptive to your body's wisdom, regarding what you put in your body. And although it is not always easy, try to take yourself lightly.

Ascension Meditation

The following meditation is designed to simulate the ascension experience. It makes use of your imagination - aka visualization - with which you may "see" inwardly, or simply "feel" or "sense" inwardly.

Sit comfortably, with your spine reasonably straight.

Imagine your Higher Self - your Spiritual Self - as a human-sized form of brilliant golden-white light just over your head.

Imagine your Higher Self slowly descending to unite with you... to merge its essence with your essence... transforming your entire being into brilliant golden-white light.

Imagine your surroundings becoming brighter and brighter, until there is nothing but an infinite ocean of golden-white light... the limitless light of Spirit.

Imagine your consciousness gently expanding, becoming one with this limitless light. Remain immersed in the ocean of light for a few minutes, and then slowly come out of your meditation.

Choosing Simplicity and Creative Compassion...and Releasing

An article and channel from Archangel Michael through Celia Fenn

image by Franziska of Germany

In these intense and changing times, many people are still struggling with making the shift of consciousness from a Third Dimensional reality to a Multi-Dimensional reality. Some think that they are alone in their struggles, and that they are missing out on the promised Joy and Peace, because they do not feel it.

This channel given below was done for a private client and is reproduced here with permission. The client felt intense anguish and pain about his life, and had many questions as to why he could not embrace the grace that was offered and why he was stuck in low self worth and feelings of negativity and fear.

The answer that came from Archangel Michael seems to have answered his question, but also shed light on why some people seem unable,as yet, break though the levels of suffering and pain and lack in their lives.

When I was at the World Congress on Illumination, we did talk much about the end of suffering and pain, and the coming of the golden age of vibrant health and well-being. But, this can only be established after the shift, and the shift is that transformation of consciousness where we understand that we, as a Collective and as Individuals, are the Creators of our own Reality, and that we can choose to create suffering. or not.

Now, this is not a facile "blaming" of those who suffer and saying "it is your own fault". That would not be compassionate or loving or helpful in any way. However, what is being suggested is that as a Collective, Humanity has chosen to create pain and suffering that was never part of the original plan. These choices have been encoded into our culture through religion. And these choices persist on a deep subconscious level, until we can change our consciousness and recode the consciousness at a cellular level. This will activate the "blueprint" for perfect health in every cell and within our being.

Consider, that Christianity teaches that we die because we are sinful. This surely inculcates a deep sense of low self worth and powerlessness in dealing with life and death. The Eastern religions teach "karma", where the individual is caught in an endless web of retribution and repayment that is the rationale for suffering. The Buddhists teach that suffering is normal and must be accepted. Each of these spiritual paths includes as a main tenet a deep belief in unworthiness and suffering that is passed on from generation to generation, encoding these beliefs within the DNA of generations of people. Then, new individuals are born with these beliefs already encoded in their cells. It is only the New Children, the Indigos and Crystals who are being born with a sense of not needing this unworthiness, and taking on their power to create something new. Their new energy has enabled many of those who were born with the old "coding" to shift their consciousness and begin to move into their own personal power as Co-Creators with Spirit.

If we can now accept that we can release the mind created illusions that limit our creations, we can move to that place where we can accept that we are the channels for Divine Creative Essence on the Earth, and that life was meant to be lived in Harmony with the Divine Light and Love, in Peace, Harmony and Love, and that abundance and good health are the rights of each person who chooses to incarnate on this Earth. Yes, indeed a "shift" in consciousness for all of us!

The channel begins with Archangel Michael giving two principles that can be applied to making this shift and letting go of what he as termed "habitual" or "addictive" patterns of thought and self-destructive behavior. For, humanity has become addicted to suffering and drama, and is needing to see how it may let go and shift to a more simple and peaceful and joyous way of life.

Light Streamings-September 2007

September 2007

Preparing for the Chaos

Many of us have come through the eye of the needle these past few months in preparation for the work ahead. Our hearts are open and full of joy as we have learned (the hard way or the easy way) that the world, our world, is shifting changing, transforming before our very eyes.

For those who have put their focus to letting go of the heaviness of heart and taken concrete steps to making our dreams come true, those dreams have already taken form. For those who have stepped back and away out of fear, take heart, your way will challenge your sanity at times, but there is still hope.

Over the next few months, the world is preparing to move through a 14-18 month period, (starting late-November 2007), through a kind of cathartic clearing. What is out of balance will be challenged and pushed aside. What is in balance will remain so. The world is destined to go through a deep time critically viewing at what is important in life, and what is broken. What is broken will be challenged on every front.

This upcoming time of re-balancing is not for the weak at heart. As much as we will witness modern day miracles occur, we are also bound to experience profound tragedy. By the fall of 2008, we will realize that the way things were, will not ever be the same again.


This era will be known as the downfall of capitalism as we have come to experience it.

In our lives, we are to shore-up what brings us joy and know that anything that feels like a heavy weight around our necks will only amplify-out to the point of becoming unbearable by late Fall. Let it go. Let it all go.

We will find that by early 2010, what we are holding onto now, will feel totally insignificant and unnecessary.

We are preparing for walking away from our lives in 2010 by letting go of the heaviness now.

In short, our future history, in many regards has already been determined as a race of nations, but it will be the power of the individual to transcend the upcoming chaos.

Know that as you release hatred and malice that you are not only doing the world a favor, but yourself also.

To answer this question: Are you holding onto hared and malice? Ask yourself the following questions:
Have I told someone that I love him or her within the last 24, 48, 72, 144 hours?
Have I remembered how much I appreciate myself for having spoken my truth?
Have I looked myself in the mirror of late with joy and gladness of heart?

If the answer is no to any of these three questions, then consider this: Life is like a flower. As we open to receive warmth from the sun and drink from the rain, we are nourished.

Allow your heart to open in all manners of being and know that you are loved.

All is well.

TOOL FOR TRANSFORMATIVE LIVING: I let go of fear as I am trusting my heart's desire to be free.
