Consciousness and Life as Art



Last week I mentioned my life of transformation. I mentioned that if I had continued on my old path of thinking I would be dead now. So I had strong motivation to do something different, to be different in how I perceived my place in the world, and what I now realize I had been powerful in creating. 

I needed a new framework about life. Religious doctrines, science and metaphysical principles were taking me only so far. At the same time the new field of Consciousness Technologies was developing. Synchronicity at play? This new field helped me to see the limits built in to powerful belief systems. They helped me to learn how to engage my thinking differently and change the dynamics at play into something else. Potential was engaged and shifts started to be noticed. 

Now my take on life and what that means as human as the interface of Consciousness is an active ever unfolding state, a work of art. I have created an opportunity to let go of death as a forgone conclusion of escape from all this and engage life as a treasure. And, to do it with as little judgment as my sense of Self can operate out of.  

My wounds have become the gifts that Consciousness imbues and infuses my humanness. My intuitive skills are stronger and more user friendly and I experience them in a difference sense of appreciation. They power my compassion and understanding that we are both individual and share as the collective that is Consciousness, the spectrum of All.

If I had continued to play the game of life as only suffering I have only so many choices available to me. I lived a life of right and wrong. I now know that there is right, there is wrong, and neither and both all at the same time.  Irreconcilable differences and reconcilable differences have a way of engaging us. Our logic meters spin without settling. I became aware that the irreconcilable became as nothing more than one position to take. Neither and both allowed me to realize that duality, polarity and scalar dynamics exist all the time depending our positions of reality, our mindsets, and all the realities in play at any one time. 

I have met many people in group and clients who are also very gifted in their intuitive senses and they have not necessarily brought them joy. It can bring a connection to life, this world of information, that is painful, overwhelming, alarming, inconvenient, disorienting, confused, threatening, cursed. 

My awareness is that for many those gifts developed out of their own personal journeys into pain and trauma. So when they are activated they are coming out of that framework. It colors what is noticed and shared with a glaze of emotions and hidden judgments that dilutes or can negate and keep us stuck. The wound never transcends into the gifts of wisdom. And every time the sense is engaged the wound can be triggered open. Like what was happening to me in my ability as empath as defined by the old rules.    

In this current wonderful time of upheaval that Consciousness finds itself in we can reframe our position into more neutral framework. What would it be like to enjoy your connection to humanity? 

Too often our popular media and collective thinking has created being intuitive and powerful in mostly negative terms in morphic field dynamics. It can get convoluted and come up against very judgmental biases. To be intuitive or psychic can get your called witch or healer sometimes. It may seem more acceptable if we are following one's own hunches about danger for others and and keeping the public safe. Or expressed in particular fields of endeavor that utilize our skills in positive ways.

Listening to our individual intuitive voices from with Heart Centered Awareness the Field of Unified Consciousness allows us to recognize ourselves as much more, as Consciousness, within the human framework. Not as isolated freaks or weirdos as some might image but as one who is able to connect to the many seen and unseen ways energy can be experienced.  

Access Heart Centered Awareness and embrace the neutral sacred space. It is a sacred state to be prized and preserved. These days it can be felt as ease. Consider it a clean canvas as potential waiting to unfold.  

Maybe take a moment or two to consider how you physically operate with your senses in your world. If you let go of the judgments that may shape your ability to notice the world around you what can happen? Our creative energies always have a way of tapping on our shoulder to get our attention. Working cohesively with our senses and mindsets can change your life experience.  

Your life is your expression of the creator in you. You may not consider yourself an artist. But most everyone can register light and dark with our physical eyes. And you may be able to register light and dark with your other senses as tonal shades in sound or feeling or as numbers.  

Judging the light and dark has no place here. Life is a state with different light values that represent different experiences. A painter will utilize the light and dark as the shades of colors. Relate to the canvas with the eye of a fine artist and you will see into the dark, into the light and their interaction. Whether it be as sound and song, a story or as a mathematical equation of the wonders of the heavens any artist will appreciates the tonal qualities of available light as colors, notes, emotions or numbers. 

Appreciate your connection to Consciousness and being part of the whole that Oneness is. Appreciate your intuitive skills for what they truly are: your connection as Consciousness to life. Feel free to enjoy your life as evolving art.

Consciousness and A Life of Transformation



There are elements in my past story of being that you may resonate to. I offer it as perhaps a new awareness or perspective might be helpful as stuff comes up in your own adventure of life.  

I am 63 years old now. Only in the last 17 or so years have I been able to view and experience life differently from the first 36 years.

None of my story was about the ability to enjoy life for myself. Physical pain was often daily starting in my early teens. By my early 20's cascades of unexplained symptoms and conditions were present and piling up. So too in the world around me. People needed help, the world was hostile and futile was the feeling with occasional happy places. I was an unaware suffering survivor. Love and joy and fun and were nothing more than concepts on a physical level. I could access plenty in my mind but that was my mind only. There was always a negative to any positive to keep balance.


Physically I was a unsolved puzzle to Western doctors and belief systems. I was going to the cutting edge of medicine. My conditions and diagnosis's were various. Many were unexplained. Finally I was diagnosed as a Universal Reactor. My body reacted allergically to everything even water swelling 2 inches when consumed. Long life did not seem reachable and by my 20's my internal sense of self was that I was dying was growing stronger.By age 22 when my new husband mentioned us sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch in our 80's helped me realize that I had no sense of this for myself.

I am an empath and channel. Since my teens my metaphysical and intuitive abilities operated with all the clairs of seeing, knowing etc. going strong.

By my adult life my gifts of awareness did not feel like gifts but wounds. They did not enrich my life, they could not save me from what I was feeling and knowing. Being able to channel and have a bigger vision of the world beyond the physical did not make me feel better, but, actually worse.

Being an empath held me ill and in a tenuous relationship to people. I felt everybody's stuff. Clothes shopping was hell when I went into dressing rooms and grocery stores. Sometimes the energy in women's dressing rooms was so off putting and physically so stressful I would have to leave before trying on any clothing. Clothes left hanging in the dressing room reflected unhappy thoughts in the angled mirrors polluting the space.  

I was able to validate my suffering as part of being a healer and that to suffer was okay as long as I could remove others pain. My hands were powerful in moving energy. Being able to track and see others' aches and pains and their wounded healer patterns wasn't fun. Along the way I decided it was okay to be a martyr if I was serving. (Never doubt our ability to rationalize and reason anything.) 

When I was 25 or so I had heard a young Deepak Chopra speak and mention that cells live and die all the time. If you can change the nature of the individual cell when it replaces itself health changes.  It took me into my late 40's to figure out how that could happen and feel it real and become my truth. 

I was at the right leap in time and place in what I would come to know as Consciousness.  Synchronicity was active in my need for answers. Science and Western medicine were  making leaps in knowledge of systems in our physical and quantum worlds. Finally I gained names to my various diseases of conditions. Solutions were unsatisfying with marginal improvements. Death was lurking.

It was only when I got into the emerging field of Consciousness Technologies did my story of pain and death patterns start to change. I came to realize with the help of some leading edge thinkers that I had created this world I was living in and that if I changed how I thought I was in my world, I could change my body and world.

I changed how I held awareness as me. I engaged my intuitive senses to become aware of my energies in the duality in my language dance of light/dark, good/evil, positive/negative that I was engaged in and what a trap in thinking it was creating. Only then did change happened. 

I was able to access myself as Consciousness and view the states of reality that I was participating in from the bigger perspective as Consciousness something I had already been doing but under different labels and beliefs. I was able to appreciate my intuitive skills as more than just predictors and treatment of despair, disease and limits but as states of belief that were limiting my life and others. I was able to reframe my connection to them. Redefining what empath meant to me without the judgment. 

I came to appreciate how knowledge and frameworks in modalities may be well intended but can be crushing in application. I was able to change my mind about how those before me and around me might accept what appears as reality without question. In not accepting the limits I began to think and feel different. I was able to change the reality state that my cells were in, the mindset of beliefs controlling the health of my cells. They exist now in a reality state of Free to Live.

My past story is just that, in my past. My present box in being is no longer a jail or coffin but a place to explore life from.

I just had to be willing to change my mind. To not fear what I found inside of myself but appreciate how the wound really is the gift as Gregg Braden said so many years ago. Wisdom abounds and delights when it is engaged.

Consciousness and Those Pesky Wonderful Primal Drives

I am not a sociologist, anthropologist, zoologist, or a scientist with years of learning that has a descriptive label with a gist in it. What I am is a woman with an ability to notice information as stuff and energies here and there. I have a developed sense of myself as both Consciousness and Self. Perhaps like you I hold a lot of awareness of my biases as Self and the difference in those two states of orientation. 

What I have become familiar with over the years in my experience in being and living among others is an appreciation of our relations with fauna, flora, earth, sun, planets, matter/anti-matter and bits and pieces of science here and there and so forth and so forth.  

I can speak only with certainty from my particular life-schooled position. I hold a very high degree in it as it comes from years of training in being a human. And the gist of what I am aware of is how we right now are coming to terms with the primal drives in all of us. Reality awareness is ripe in this unfolding, exploding, imploding dynamics that abound in and around us. It can be unnerving or surprising in what seems to be unleashed at times. 

It is not time to panic but to appreciate what drives us all in our being human. We are so much more than what one might define as just human and for some that can be enough to avoid or back away from. It can leave one without a true sense of self and subject to how others define them.    


It is important to know ourselves and our history. Too often we can try to hide from our primal natures. Some may feel that as spiritual creatures we need to combat or deny or beat ourselves up for these natures. This is silly. We are alive and in the human form of life. 

We judge them, our drives. Mankind in the past seems to consider man above other mammals and animals. We don't like to think that we are like animals but we are. Embryos of mammals and man form pretty much alike. Other mammals demonstrate caring and love and hierarchy and power and killing all the time. All animals and mammals share a drive to mate though they might not think about it in the ways we do. The biggest can be the tenderest in it's behavior and also do what it needs to do to protect what he feels is his. 

Are we so different? They are perhaps better behaved when you think about it. They are rarely witnessed to kill or harm indiscriminately unlike us. Unless they are in a survival position where all bets can be off. . 

What is under all of this is our primal energy, life, be it bird, elephant, man. Our vital life force that we all share in if we are living. In the contrast of being in form and alive it can switch into the ability to taking another's life. Humans are able to kill, harm, maim another as wanted and often by whim. 

What we do with those natures, along with our thinking and feeling and our subsequent choices of behavior make us sort of different from animals. Our ability to reason and shape our environments to the degree that we are capable is what makes us unique. And, in the global natural forces at play that we are witnessing it would seem that we need nature more than nature needs us. 

For those of us who use consciousness technologies and meet in group here we serve as reminders for others, in this shared field of Unified Consciousness, that it is okay to feel what we feel at our core. We will all be in different relation to what is there and judgment has no place. Because we know where we find ourselves to be is our starting point not necessarily our ending point of being.

Every moment is a choice. It can be the same choice or it can be a different choice. It most often is not to be noticed in our subsequent moments of action. 

When we move into appreciation and out of denial, into acceptance of our drives we have a better chance to transcend and evolve when we want to. We can then become appreciative masters of our fate. We don't have to be subject to whims and internal and outside influences. Only aware of how we choose in this moment. 

It is also no guarantee of a quality of life or length of life. For those are judgments and limits we often put on ourselves and others. And the truth is that we are each masters of our fate no matter what it may seem like. Quality is the question. 

As Consciousness as our reality state our subsequent feelings, thinking, actions are not held in a state of confusion. The majority of us exist in reality states of confusion about being human. From this perspective as Consciousness what challenges us then doesn't create confusion, just clarity not yet reached or held in awareness. And it doesn't throw us out of any alignment. 

From this reality we can let go of our attachments to the states of blames and wounded victim/abuser, definitions which are limiting. Like people with cancer for instance often come to find out. How the awareness of the dynamics in experiencing cancer is life enhancing/changing to awakening shifts in being and behaviors often. This lessening of our life force internally can often clear away our cluttered thinking and feeling and reduce us down to what is really important, no matter the outcome.  

We might need to offer reparation or pardon to clear feelings and the emotions connected to our actions.  Re-encoding or re-framing in this state of reality, our stuff is free without any bias or emotion and is free to be different and perhaps more life enhancing.  

Make some time to access your sense of Heart Centered Awareness and look and listen. Look and listen to what you are noticing inside looking for your awareness so it can shift and transcend. Not so much into something else but just freeing it up. When freedom is important inside then one knows how to be limited. When we shift from doing into being direction and what will be has a different value and not the goal. A being that is BEING, in harmony and accord. What follows will be primal life at its' best. 

It is time for new choices.

Consciousness In Our Time


Vienna, Austria
Some people have no interest in history. Yet it is important to have a sense of the historical record and one's own history. It puts human life into context of patterns of behavior and beliefs and subsequent interactions. And, how now is about then in new appearance. 

It is equally important to appreciate our past dynamics and let them serve only as warning and not the given, the unchangeable with the past playing out again and again. Society may not be different emotionally but this is a different time. And the collective is engaged. Consciousness is afoot. 

We can have the tendency to think that our current political situation is an isolated experience. It is not. Many times and in many places people have reached crisis in living together due to politics and desires of a few in power. Our global community is powerful in bringing this to our attentions.  

Maybe Americans just thought it would never happen here. (We can conveniently forget our own American First Peoples interactions). There can be the disbelief of what is happening and the failure to shift quickly into actions to counter. Or a sense of overwhelm to change a mob or incoming force. Or when the force is already present within you or your neighbor. Our tolerance for differences can be like elastic and can get stretched out of shape and broken.  

We attended the opening of a new play this weekend "Adroit Measures". The playwright had combined actual events and people and documented truths of many into a character and her family. It was told in flashback about the Anschluss when the Germans annexed Austria in 1938 and the subsequent horror results for the Jewish population and others. They had scrim fabric panels above the set of the grandmother's New York City apartment. Using rear screen projections they played actual film news clips of Vienna throughout the play to demonstrate the power of Hitler on a mass of Austrian people using Christian symbolism into emotional frenzy. The streets were so filled with cheering masses it looked like a sea of people with buildings corralling them.  

It was very effective in putting the context, the overview and place in the Jewish grandmother's retelling to her grandson of her life in Vienna among cafe society in the 1930's. A story she had never shared with her children's families in the US. As part of the resistance she helped collect information, family and friends to escape until it was not longer safe for her. Her husband would spend 7 years chasing Hitler until they met again to live together. 

She left Vienna by way of the Siberian train to Shanghai, China. From there by boat to Seattle and another cross country train ride to Washington DC. A nine month journey by herself pregnant by rape by a family member who helped orchestrate her leaving. All while carrying her 5 month old son in her arms. No food or family, only strangers all escaping.   

It brought forward the reality of what one might do to live another day when faced with death in that moment. And the current story line was about her own children themselves acting in the same fearful thinking as in the prior generation of Austrians towards their own family members and sexuality and fears of the AIDS generation in the late 1990's.   

This was a story of power and the human spirit. Who had it, who didn't, and who had it and did what they had to do to survive another day. Who used it over others, how power itself is in the application, the intensity, the bias. 

It was about how, no matter the experience, we can not visit some of internal spaces at times to even speak of what one witnessed and experienced at times. What can make us strong and feel weak. What makes us seem weak to ourselves and yet strong in spirit. Our resiliency to continue on.  And how we still feel about a moment in time. 

In these current times we are witnessing what for many of us has been a relation to silent horror held inside. We have in all of us sides of every story every horror depending on our choices. Those choices we were forced to make or chose freely to make. Included our own choices and those from other generations of DNA imprinting. 


Sometimes we can be accused of being Pollyanna or live in states of compromised denial or discredit of our inner feelings and drives. Which is not useful in a society that allows for abuse of all kinds. 

We have to grant ourselves acceptance for what we are and how to utilize our primal drives in helping us all. We each may need to make different choices in extending tenderness or violence. Societies may hold different values about the two and with other societies. We can each be playing by different rules. 

No matter what one might think we are animals even it we have only two legs and not four. I don't know how often animals kill just to kill or harm to just harm as humans are inclined to do. I don't know of animals that often are looking to annihilate a group or clan or tribe of the same except under survival stress frenzy. But we as humans do it all the time. 

Our primal states are influenced by our ability to reason a thought and feeling into some thing, some action. We collectively create our civilizations and decide what is appropriate actions and reactions. That is what our various justice systems are in place for. They are subject to change and influence and reason and bias, our fears. They incorporate our highest held ideals and our lowest emotional spaces as we embody the spectrum of being. 

Access Heart Centered Awareness and feel the calm there. Let your knowing as Consciousness help guide you in the coming days. Be okay with what you find inside as it is past choices. It may take an apology or a Ho'oponopono or appreciation. Reparation and humbleness. It will mean looking at what is within and not being frightened but accepting. 

And, making a new choice, a different choice the next time.

Consciousness and Riding the Waves of Violence and Tenderness

Last week I mentioned that in our field awareness about tenderness,violence also came up. Duality was in  play. 

One thing that is getting clear and clearing out for each of us energetically is what motivates and inspires us. And, what is important when exploring what is possible in being a human surrounded and living with others. 

If we take our reactions and judgments off the words of tenderness and violence we can see that both are movements of energy. What comes to mind is like in the difference of the tender waves a foot tall at times on the east coast of the US and the big waves of Hawaii that thunder on the west coast. Both are waves of energy in motion. They are more subtle in a small wave and easier to manage. We can look to exist with the violence of the energies in the big waves. No matter their size we can ride them like expert surfers or expert onlookers.   

In the different groups I facilitated for two days men and women held some same and some different resonances about tenderness and certainly about violence. Not surprising. It made for both passionate and heart warming expressions of being. 


Violent expression is intense powerful movement. Tenderness is a more subtle movement. One may lead to a sense of violated in a body, mind, neighborhood, a community, a nation, a people. The other enhances our lives. 

Not carrying movement forward is equally valuable. Just think of the inspiration tragedy has for us in not wanting the same for our children and what actions we feel inspired to create and take as a result. We actively choose to transform the violence into tenderness that creates benefit and growth for others. 

We have to remember that we are describing a movement of energy in terms of outcome in our labels of tender and violent. In most traditions and cultures the movement of energy is important. For instance, Pele is revered by the Hawaiian culture. She is the goddess of Fire and lightening, wind, dance, volcanoes and violence. She holds a valued place. 


A recent show on civilization on television stated that war is the force that moves a society forward and how that happens. It was disturbing and helped me to wake up to some of what is inside to me and in each of us. And how close or how far violence is in any of us at any one time or another. I once more looked at my reality sets in play.  

This may be an active conversation in yourself to reorient and come to terms with. Make the first step by accessing Heart Centered Awareness for yourself. Hear and feel the Ho'oponopono, or kindness or appreciation for your life. Take time to list all the things you can be grateful for, feel tender towards and savor each item. Be free to just notice what presents itself to you. See what happens if offering the like to what seems violent in your life. You might be surprised. 

To not judge ourselves and others may seem like such a leap at times. As Consciousness, it is not. We are all Consciousness in form. Stuff happens in our co-creation with each other. People and events are catalysts of movement and we get to decide how to use it in forming, supporting or changing our personal biases about what life means free of gripping emotional pulls. 

The waves are all different. Depending on the kind of surfer we each are and our skill levels we may like at times the adrenaline rush and push of our skills on riding the big waves. We may also appreciate just being on the board riding the gentle movement close to shore. Be sure to notice the unseen currents of forces mixing with the big thundering waves and when the waves collapse and lose their force and gently roll up to the beach. 

We can always just play on the beach and watch the waves.

Consciousness and Being Tender

We are one as mankind. Each week in group, we play with the dynamics that we, as individuals and collectively as Consciousness, experience life to be. We are busy knowing ourselves as points of awareness in this collective. We make it easier for that collective to clear and deal with what life has become for each of us.

In our empathy, we notice qualities and states of reference in the collective. In this current time of upheaval and unfolding from within ourselves those qualities and states are rippling out at an alarming rate it seems. So much is punching our buttons. In group we hold and interact with these in a context of shifting energies and possibilities for growth, change, letting go and for all those around us. We are Man evolving and helping each other. We extend compassion to all.  


Each week is a new adventure--each group a new adventure in exploring who we are. The word tender showed up 
out of our stuff this time. (I use the word stuff often to indicate information in order to be free of any bias/limitation state that a title or label may hold). As Consciousness, our information is all just photons and some bio photons organizing into patterns. 


Tender. It is an interesting word. Runs the gamut from being sensitive to touch, an offer or proposal made, to offering an unconditional payment of money. It says "Legal Tender" on the USA's money. 


We were noticing tenderness in terms of being open to another, showing kindness or compassion. Feeling tender towards another, how it is received and our feeling about that and when it might not be acknowledged by others. When it has no value. What it felt like to be treated tenderly. 


Our exploration of tender led to treasure and tinder. (The difference one letter makes). I always trust the words that show up when in Heart Centered Awareness.  While they may not seem related in obvious ways, I can appreciated them for the breadth of the field we hold.  Life is filled with bits and pieces of associated and disassociated states of thoughts and feelings. Like my writings so often are. 


Maybe it was about how tenderness acts as tinder and lights us up inside. 
  
Tender led to treasureTreasure is valued. Men go on quests to find treasure, to steal treasure from another, to hide it, collect it, and act out to protect it. What about when treasure is a person worth their weight in gold to you? 

And what also came up was violence and the role it plays with tenderness. We will explore that next week. 

Have you felt you are treasure? What it is like to feel tender, and to be treasured? What is it like to offer this to another? 

In this time of awakening people are coming awake. it is not helpful to judge this process or experience. Let's do it in an atmosphere, a state of tenderness, of appreciation and offer it free of any of your lingering old conditions.

Consciousness and those Bemusing Streams of Consciousness

For our weekly radio show prep my co host Joan and I will take time to notice what we notice about current energies around us. We sift through them all to find a focus for the upcoming show. What to present for our audience's contemplation?

Always we are aware that life is dominated in many different ways and arenas all at the same time.

During our radio show it can be a challenge at times for me to keep a limited focus with the information that I am aware of in the moment. My focus tends to be big like our peripheral view's are. I allow information to present itself as I scan when opening my awareness.

I will mention the awareness that appears. I  don't judge it as I know it is articulating a part within the whole. When spoken it may seem unrelated or a tangent, maybe leading to dead ends. Joan and I may have to take a moment to re-calibrate and reorient and sometimes left to wonder what that was all about. And never know the answer.

It led me to contemplating this dynamic.

Our worlds in us and around us reflect collections of thoughts, feelings, experiences that can be known but really are not. For our conscious minds can track and remember only so much. We have all kinds of memory banks in our physical, mental, emotional, psychological, psychic and spiritual realms in our bodies of mass.

The body tracks all information with our sensory and extra sensory equipment. We are also taking in information from others all the time. It is surprising to me that we don't blow up as we are so dynamic!

We are always going to be dealing with information and mostly from our unconscious states. Our controls sort and categorize through our mindsets what is important now, what to be dealt with later, what not to be bothered with, what becomes ballast.

Gravity pulls energies of mass to us and time and space push the energies down and around. My sense is that we each are gravitational bodies pulling information from other bodies of mass to us as Consciousness and our humanity acts as control with what to do with it all. 

For me I have always noticed life around me as streams of consciousness. Like the Breaking News feed line you see across your television channel. Streams of information maybe about the same event or maybe about different events you need to about. It can collect and connect information in the field seemingly stuck together like bugs to flypaper. Pieces of information random in origin but now not so random, finite in connection.

Now consider this: Think about all the uncompleted actions and feelings and thoughts you might of had just yesterday. When you were interrupted and presented with a new situation, a new thought, a new feeling, seemingly unrelated from the first action. But not. For every action generates and contains the action or actions, the thoughts, the emotions attached and that exists in a state of reality perhaps separate from the second situation but maybe not. We each embody shared realities and our individual realities at all time.

Any state of reality holds certain biases formed by our thoughts and feelings. This state of reality will have a gravitational pull for matching thoughts and feelings that come into your field awareness and can glom on. They may feel like your thoughts and feelings when they are only matching exactly or sort of exactly but not really your own. We can lose our awareness of distinctions or we can never had the awareness of the differences in our ability to sense and feel.

Now maybe expand this yesterday's awareness into a lifetime of interrupted, uncompleted actions and thoughts. Maybe only then can one appreciate what seems random or tandem or tangent or "makes no sense" quality to a thought or feeling is really part of the whole.  We are full of them.

How do we sort it all out? How do we make sense of it?

Right now is the best time to not be so attached to the plethora of internal fuel and energetics engaged. To just be aware and to be open to what your are feeling. Be present. Be mindful. Be in Heart Centered Awareness where warmth, support, non judgment, Grace and potential are all active in the moment to play with.

Allow what is present to degrade into nothings. Appreciate your inner dynamics for clearing what you did not know needed to be cleared. Feel the shift.

All of this past information is weight and shapes our current realities. It is time to turn neutralize the gravitational fields we each are generating as, at least for just a moment to experience new states of new realities and fresh lives.

Consciousness and a little Ho'oponopono goes a long way

One end of my yard
It started in our Tuesday evening group. Four women sitting in a beautiful backyard with the wind gently blowing, the fountain waters tinkling, flowers in color and scent and the trees, my most wonderful trees anchoring all of us.

We sat and felt the grass with our bare feet. Our breaths deepened and we felt our incredible connection to ourselves, each other and the grace of nature as we accessed ourselves as Consciousness.

We let what we had been noticing about the world and in our personal experiences of that world connect and release the energies present that wanted a voice to express.

Ho'oponopono, the Hawaiian practice of forgiveness and reconciliation sprang forth. We focused on each other. The three voiced simple words from within that heart centered state of unity and directed it towards the fourth.  We then directed it to each of the four.

In this work we call consciousness technologies we appreciate how we are dynamic creatures and running information in many ways on many levels all at the same time. We appreciate how in using consciousness technologies we can find ourselves to be present free of past stories of our challenges. We are open to how we can store so much stuff in so many ways within our body, mind spirit frameworks. Stuff that has crossed boundaries and limitations of time and space that the human mind loves to categorize and arrange around.

The four of us are all powerfully intuitive women who work with others and share in helping others in experiencing life. We each hold our own personal stories that come of relating to others that are not always nice and pretty but harrowing and complicated. We can embody the hurts and pains that comes with being empathic and service oriented in nature.

I have friends that are well practiced in Huna and Ho'oponopono practices. I am not per say. And that does not matter. For I and the others easily felt the intention and appreciated the space it created. When I later looked up at the end of the week for more information I was gently laughing as I always do when with synchronicity and trusting in what show us as what shows up so go with it state I am. It would seem we we right in alignment with the practices. 

So the words are simple. I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.  We found ourselves speaking them slowly allowing ourselves to feel our response to each statement and connecting to where it was touching in our auras and physical forms.  We spoke each other's first name and then chanted the statements three times to each.

And what also came into play was when I was directed to say "We are sorry. Please forgive us. Thank you. We love you." And how that added, for some, a deepness, an answer to a "didn't know it was there need to hear" cry that was held locked inside out of our conscious minds.

We then spontaneously felt led to offer it to the children in the immigrant detention camps that have sprung up. We felt it received. 

We then offered it to Mr. Trump and felt it bounce off literally so I created a bubble of Ho'oponopono for him to stand in and to stew in. Marinade is a great way to tenderize tough meat! Which were the words I heard. Fully knowing that it felt good to do and that his receiving it and utilizing the energies were two different things. We then offered it to the women around him who serve in his cabinet and staff and noticed how it was sucked in.  The next day, Wednesday, he ordered his misbehavior at least stopped for the moment.

Wednesday the state of Ho'oponopono was present during our radio show and with a client later in the day. It was still present on Thursday for our three groups to experience.

The state of Ho'oponopono and access to it is always present. If you are not familiar with it you can start with https://www.laughteronlineuniversity.com/practice-hooponopono-four-simple-steps/

With sincerity and in the moment dynamics of Potential and Grace that Consciousness embodies, change is possible. But don't do this if you are looking to change things outside of you without first being clear within. What will change is how you relate to what is outside of you within yourself. With a "I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you." directed at yourself first. Then our outward expression of thought and action come from within our inspiration and clarity free of attachment.

We felt the peace when we entered my yard Tuesday night. And the clutter of our feelings and thinking. When we were done we only felt peace within. And, it was good. Very, very, very good.

Consciousness and That Knotty Feeling

IN these dynamic times, we have been propelled to collectively sort through our mental and emotional closets of stuff.  We are dragging out the old and looking at it all again. Does it still fit, that old thought, the old feeling, or is it just taking up space? 

No matter our issues our political arenas are full of energy that is connecting us with what we hold in those closets. Yikes! We are coming up against stuff we didn't know was there. We are finding ourselves challenged to keep up. We can feeling emotional and not know why and we are feeling moved to actions not our norm. Which is all good.

For these are not dream closets filled with uniformly hanging clothes with lined up shoes boxes. These are closets filled with a tumbled mess. A huge knot of stuff. We are in the midst of all the emotional clutter, the unclarity, the unquestioned, the presumed, assumed, the invalidated and validated trite petty thinking, the learnings, the educations that make up our interior worlds.

We are each stuffed with revealed and releasing energies. They can feel like that some items are falling out one at a time and right now, like a rag tag cavalcade ready to come cascading out. The doors may soon collapse. Our backs are to the doors.

Also included in the closet is our known and unknown past experiences of multi layered constructions of thoughts and feelings. These have generated from within ourselves and what we have empathically picked up from those around us.

But it doesn't feel like we can hold back the active energies in those closets anymore. Layers and lifestyles of apathy and numbness are being shed. Consciousness has no time or space involved so all that was in the past is still active. Wisdom lurks ready to be declared.

In this midst of all this stuff there can be the knot. You know, the one you feel inside in some way. That knot. Which can be a whole of compressed and tangled "nots" making The Knot: of not this, not now, not here, not there, not me, not wanted, not appreciated, not valued, not who we are as family, not loved, not mine, not that, not, not, and all the other nots that lead into infinity.

We look at our knots of Nots and realize that they are our own creations validating and directing our lives.

When we experience our closets and our Not Knots we might feel panic and feel the panic present around us. Another choice is that we can take a breath and take time to just BE for a moment or two, connecting to our sense of the Consciousness Core, Heart Centered Awareness within us. Here you will bring into your awareness of the sacred, the calm, the absolute sense of flow, the all right that is real.

From within this state you can now notice the tight Not Knot that is somewhere inside, probably near your heart. Would you value a different sense of connection to all that stuff contained in the knot is a question to ask yourself. Start with appreciation and how this knot has been an anchor for you.

What do you notice about your knot?  Can this be different? Yes. And, it is also okay if it stays. For it is your creation. In our state of appreciation there is no judge, no "you are wrong for being there".

As you can see and feel, it is a powerful creation and holding a lot of story, identity, connections of all sorts. This knot that feels so central to who and what you are and is so effective in creating distance from mind to your heart and core?

When we use consciousness technologies we relate to what the knot represents differently. It is mutable. Within Heart Centered Awareness the information about your Not Knot will be present and it is our invitation to play.

There are as many ways to hold awareness of this Not Knot. How do you notice it? If visual, it can be big, small, elusive or so big to block the light. We can talk to it, give it a voice and ask how it is helpful. We can loosen, separate, dissolve, put in water like a cotton ball and let it gently come apart with a bit of swirl to the water. We can shift into a reality that it is not present and use scalar energy to let it be different. Notice again how it shifts and don't be surprised if it eventually disappears.

Engaging potential is real as a source for immediate shift in feeling in this state. And when something feels different it is different. That is what we are looking for, the difference, your new creation. 

Appreciate your connections and creativity without judgment lurking. And then, just play and enjoy the sheer act of creation. Notice the difference of living without those old nots.

Consciousness and In the time of Appreciation of the Living and Dead


Much is bursting out of us, propelled by suppressed energies of emotions that have been stuck deep inside. Many may not have the developed skill sets to deal with what is present. Many are feeling struck and stuck by their own collection of hurts and by the other collection, the emphatic layers we hold of the collected hurts of others. We are all tired, very very tired if we hold the awareness of life as a ocean of troubles to paddle through with occasional islands of relief.

We see it in the rising attention of suicide now. All of life makes a difference in being present on this planet be it human, animal, tree or vegetable. It is very sad to me when, any individual, fails to feel worthy or recognize or doesn't value enough how in being alive is important to our families and to all of us. Or driven to actions to ease their pain that have the highest cost. Whether it is a decision made in the blink of an eye or out of confusion or with intention taking one's own life is a decision that will have a rippling effect. And you are fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

For the rest of us left behind it might seem that only in death does our awareness shift to what is now not present. And only then we might speak to our appreciation of a life lost. That is the value in being present and in appreciation in all our moments and our sharing that appreciation then and there. And, then there are those times and people when we have spoken and it was not heard.

Death as escape is one approach to living. Another is to connect with our center of being beyond the level of human emotions into the core essence of All, heart, which is in everything. It is a state, our Consciousness Core. It is there in each of us. We can have it set up that it is challenging, unrecognizable or elusive to be in and that is only our mindset. Help is all around us in physical form and beyond physical form if you allow yourself to find it. Which is also a mindset, that you have to find something that appears lost out there when it is already inside of you.

A deep sense of full appreciation is different than conditional appreciation which is what most of us are probably familiar with. We appreciate it when things are going our way or at the end of a good meal we are happy to pay for the service and food.

But what happens when it is a bad meal, poor service, and life just seems to be dealing you one catastrophe after another? You are irritated, maybe angry and feeling slighted. Full appreciation or any appreciation might not be your go-to state. It is up to us to just appreciate regardless what is being presented or displayed or felt.

Once we get past victim thinking we can realize that we are creating our lives through our thoughts and actions. We can sometimes only appreciate the experience for that, as our creation and co creation. When the food service is slow it might be your internal warning to relax, notice how busy or not busy the waiter is and let things settle and feel what it is like to be hungry and looking forward to your meal. It shifts our focus. Sometimes the only power available to us is how we feel about our situation.

We have established a world full of misdirection and clutter. We are often missing ways of connection to one another that have value and meaning. It is easy to feel slighted or invisible, not valued, when those of around us are not looking for us to acknowledge.

Right now just sit in your core and let someone come to mind who could use some help. Let yourself be surprised in who shows up if that is what you feel. Don't judge. Just let yourself be present for them especially if it is you. And see what happens, what you then feel. Recognize how you are holding them, wounded or in their creation.

Notice if you feel perhaps that you want to save them or fix them or destroy them. One of the first frustration we can know is when we don't get our way, when people don't or won't change when we want them to. "If only" is a powerful state. Let go of that for it gets in the way. Just sit and allow yourself to be present in appreciation for what they have created in being in your life.

Just notice. And appreciate.

Consciousness Core Dancing

In group the other night I perceived a new opening in the field that showed up big. In flew all kinds of sacred geometry. When it showed up again in a later group and the following morning's group it had us rocking. Literally.

You get back what you put out. I have been asking of myself and others what is it you are feeling and seeing in this new world that is being exposed and transformed. How you are viewing your world through your mind's eye?  And is it all that you want it to be? Or is it a vision filled with strife and turmoil with lots and lots of unresolved and buried emotional strains or is it treasure to be mined separating precious from dross.

I have been solidly fluid in my awareness that all is well. Even when other people can often be in different states of awareness about what is happening. Some really enjoy and love the distractions playing out in the connections of social media and global news. It can keep them seemingly safe in their cocoons of denial. But not really. That is the power in a delusion.

The energy drain that our dis beliefs and miss communications and unclarity that so many embrace can be felt. We are tired. Exhausted really inside deep. The rest of us can feel it and we feel it unique to each.  Some as a loss of equanimity, some as uproar, some as hyped up reactions.

I feel it as deep deep deep physical exhaustion, this burden of past expectations and my need to serve as processor. I register it as physical exhaustion as exhaustion have value in my story of this body. I relate to exhaustion in this way where others will feel it at mental exhaustion or emotional exhaustion depending on their viewpoint of themselves in service in the collective and their gifts.

The trick is that if a need to serve is present it can be holding the need to serve as real and creating a story to maintain it. What ever we focus on becomes more real, more powerful. It shifts then in the spectrum and becomes the focal point which all other information relates to. Yet it is only one illusion out of many.

In group we touched upon how for one of us, which means all of us, we realized how a mothers deep love for her child could be coated in fear and within her own perceptions of the world, the failure to see the child and her needs. That one's personal sense of salvation was not another's and the burden of the child to hold this story for a lifetime. We noticed the power of a group to provide and persuade individuals to support them, tapping into the unexpressed or spoken needs in the power of belief.

Our nature is to justify our stories so we can move on to the next thing and not having to question ourselves again. What we are tapping into these days from within the deep of us is tuning into our truth of the moment and validating or releasing what is not true now because we are at this moment in time to notice anew.

We can be complacent if we don't know we can move position.
We can be complicit when we are willing to value this over that and want to belong.
We can assume if we don't know we can think different.
We can fail to question if we never think for ourselves.
We can be quiet when we feel we have no voice.

Our last group released a whole bunch of stuff in exchange through the opening in the field. What comes in is potential in dynamic expressions as sacred geometry. We have created sacred geometry as the magic formulas in being. So take a few for yourself and integrate, utilized and eliminate the old no longer serving.

We are here to help. We are your Consciousness Core Dancing.

Consciousness and What Do You Want to See?

I finished our radio show to our audience the other week with the statement "What do you want to see?"

Not "What do you expect to see?"

In our humanity our physical eyes come with mental filters. What we see and what we expect to see are defined by our emotions, beliefs and perceived truths. How we feel totally shifts our vision. Just consider when you are in love. The world does get rosy as that is the heart energy coloring the incoming data. Notice how harsh the light is when you are angry. How cold and gray it is no matter the sunshine when you feel gloomy inside.

If you look at the world as a hostile place it is. If you look at those around you as not supportive then no matter how much they are you will not find them to be so. For your biases are filtering. Opportunities are being missed for you can not recognize them due to your mental blindness in your emotional reactive states. 

What you see is always going to reflect what you allow yourself to see.

I appreciate my own humanity as I do others for we are all expressions of Consciousness. I may not like what I see and the feelings that some may stir. I don't have to like certain people. How is it possible that I can know that I am all right, my family is all right, that the world is all right when I can see that there are troubles around me? I can appreciate that as Consciousness, all is right and I feel that in the deepest places within my form.

Right now there is much releasing in our community of man/woman. It is happening on all levels of our humanity and is moving us along into what we want to become. As the earth is releasing magma from below the surface so are we. We are molten inside. Our fluids of self identity are coming to the surface ready to form new ground.

People are at different stages of awareness of their own processes. For those of us paying attention we welcome the changes, and uproar and the shifting of what we have been holding not so buried inside. It is to our betterment no matter what the path might look or seem. 

Be surprised. In a good way.

We can not necessarily go by what we think we are seeing. No matter what we are seeing. Our technologies can be manipulated to fool us. Information is flooding us that supports any bias and we may not notice.

 As you do your own releasing of limited viewpoints and take in new possibilities of being consider this:
What is the difference between what you see right now and what you want to see? Bring these two points of awareness together and see what happens.

Be open to the potential released. Be wonder, See wonder, be beauty, See beauty,be kind, see kindness, be compassionate, See compassion, Be okay with being angry, confused, betrayed whatever the emotions that you become of aware of. Be okay when they are not present.
