“Get a clue!”, my guidance yelled at me the other day.

At first I thought it had to be my own, chiding voice that pipes in from time to time, but no. The wisdom of the guidance was unmistakable.

Besides that, the signs were obvious. They’d been showing up one after another for weeks, some of them for months.

Get a clue is right.

Apparently, I’d been barreling down a road that I shouldn’t have even been on. And some part of me just didn’t want to admit it.

But I can happily report that I listened. I’m beginning to stroll merrily along a path that is much more fitting with who I am.

Have you ever done that? Found yourself heading the wrong way but not wanting to acknowledge it? Forcing your guidance to have to pull out all the stops?

I want to share a little about the signs I saw along with a few morsels of wisdom from my guide that helped me redirect myself.

The Direction

If you’ve been following the past few months, you know that I’ve adjusted my blog topic and am changing my blogging style.

The soul searching that led to that was prompted in part by a problem I started having with my shoulder. (I could write  a whole series of posts on the details of how that related to my blog. For now, just trust me. It did.)

So this was all well and good, and I had plans for quite a few posts over this next month along with some more Jyotish Tutorial articles. I was looking forward to visiting some blogs I like to read regularly. I was also participating in the Blog with Videos Bootcamp, and getting ready for a trip I’ll be taking this week.

But as I jumped in and began implementing my plans, everything started going awry.

The Signs

Because my left shoulder was so problematic when I used my netbook, I’d started sitting at my desk to work on my desktop computer.

Well, now my other shoulder started acting up from that.

Worse yet, the chair at my desk feels good but it does a number on my back if I sit there too long. Wouldn’t you know, it got my back into such a state that I tweaked it last week and now it’s seriously injured.

Even as this was going on, I got a request by someone that I couldn’t refuse. It involved yet more work at the computer. But I committed anyway, thinking I could use my netbook, just in a different position.

I turned on my netbook and heard a horrible screeching and scraping noise that should never ever come out of a computer. Eeek! I turned it off immediately. (I did some Matrix Energetics on it. I tentatively turned it back on and it’s been fine ever since … but still!)

So, there were a number of issues preventing me from being on the computer more than just an hour or two per day.

On top of that, I somehow got myself into a disfunctional emotional state on a day when I had a lot of computer work to do, mainly writing my planned posts. I just could not bring myself to write.

I was so stressed. I had to write and be at the computer, but I couldn’t.

I just couldn’t.

What to do?

Channeled Guidance

In a state of desperation I decided to try channeling about it.

I got into a channeling state and blubbered to whatever guide would listen. In came a wonderful guide I have who is a master alchemist, and very loving besides.

He sort of lectured me (quite uncommon), and then did a healing session (on the order of a chakra cleanse) that left me trembling for about 20 min. afterward.

But it was just what I needed. I was calm and focused and at peace; and have been fine (and nicely functional) ever since.

Here are a few things he said:

You’ve got to break out of the rules. I’m going to tell you that you’ve got to watch for the “should”s. [Note: I'll get more into this with another post but I noticed a month or so back that my shoulder problems are partly about "shoulds". Should-er. Get it?!]

But part of the joy that you are moving toward with this vacation can only be found if you can not only move into it but unfold it and create it with the consciousness of joy.

And you cannot do that while you are vibrating with the consciousness of stress.

Do what is fun for you this week, period.

You are disfunctional because you have asked to open more to your subtle self. In order to do that you have got to quit living in your old patterns.

Part of your energy system is trying to communicate that to you with ideas such as this but also in other ways. Like not allowing you to do it anymore.

Do you see all the signs?

Get a clue!

Be responsible to your spirit, your fire. This is not what you are supposed to be doing. … You aren’t going to find your way if you’re spending your time stressing out — like you did last year — about your blog.

Surrender

It might sound obvious now but at the time, since I was approaching my blog differently, I didn’t see that in many ways I was still approaching blogging the same.

I didn’t dread it like I used to before my blog changes, but I still had too many expectations and just as much stress around it.

I decided to completely surrender to the circumstances.

Not only that, but to consider what they might be telling me. (For I don’t think circumstances are really “outside” of me. They’re me, having a conversation with myself.) It seemed the least I could do since they had to yell it at me just like my channeling guide had to.

For someone as tenacious as me, surrender was difficult. But it was a relief at the same time.

So I did what I had already committed to (because that’s what I do). I submitted a new Jyotish Tutorial article and met my commitments to the person I didn’t dare say no to.

I still felt I ought to post, even wanted to post, but saw that feeling a need to do it now while so many circumstances were against it was nothing more than a should.

I knew it was time to put my attention on other priorities such as healing my back so I can travel, and getting ready for my trip.

So I did that. I did what I enjoyed; and enjoyed what I did.

And I didn’t stress about anything.

The New Path

Over the past half week, I feel like a new person.

And even though I don’t know exactly where this renewed way of operating will take me, I’m somehow trusting that it will be good. And of course, if it’s not, I can always change course when the time is right. I can respond in the moment.

I did have one challenge yesterday. The husband of a good friend of mine who lives about an hour away is dying as we speak. He’s also a friend and I’m wanting to do whatever I can for them. But with my back condition, I haven’t been able to.

I’d accepted that but yesterday I got word that he was somewhat conscious and coherent.

I wanted so badly to drive down there and visit.

But even as I began to consider it, my back went into intense spasms! Even then, it took me a little while to see the connection and realize that again, my guidance was having to yell at me!

“Knock it off!”, it was saying.

Get a clue!

Today, I remain in surrender. I’m sitting in a comfortable position writing this post. And then I’ll go get my packing done for my trip. I’m fortunate to know how to do distance sessions with my dear friends who are in crisis — perhaps an even better help than being there in person.

And whatever doesn’t work out, just doesn’t work out; and what does, does.

I’m okay with it. It’s not up to me to control everything.

This morning I said a prayer I learned when I was in recovery:

God, I offer myself to Thee, to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt.

Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I might better do Thy will.

I’m not pretending that I know best.

I’m just doing what I can to hear Divine guidance, and then to follow it without kicking and screaming for a change, so that it doesn’t have to scream at me!

And all the while, I get to live in curious anticipation of how it’s going to unfold.

What a much more enjoyable way to live!

P.S. As you might have guessed, I didn’t write the posts I intended to schedule for you during my trip. So! I may not be back here until I physically return in a few weeks. (Anyway, it seems this is long enough to last you til then. Oops!) Of course I’ll be checking in for comments, though, so I’d still love to hear from you!

How about you? Does your guidance ever have to scream at you? How do you understand “surrender”? Where are you with this right now?

New Eyes & Points of Light

This is a message that I channeled for someone this past Easter.

Normally my channelings are quite personal and more about everyday, practical matters than about something so esoteric-sounding as the Christ energy.

But being Easter, Christ and the Resurrection happened to be the main topic of the day.

Still, I think you’ll find you can apply these ideas.

This information is from a special guide I know as Melchizedek.

It touches upon:

  • The Christ energy and our expression of that
  • Christ’s return as distributed points of light (that’s you)
  • You as a cell in the body of Christ
  • How the return is unfolding over time
  • Worship and devotion
  • Seeing things anew
  • You are rising as well

My intention — and what I ask for whenever I channel — is that it be helpful to the questioner at this point in time.

In this case, because it was so generalized and I was inspired to share it with you, I am trusting  that it might be helpful to you, too.

Many thanks to the questioner for his enthusiastic permission and encouragement.

By the way: I’m not claiming that this is absolute or universal truth. I’m just sharing an experience. These questions have been asked, answered, and shared freely and unconditionally — no expectations and no strings attached.

So just take what you want and leave the rest.

I hope you enjoy this. Namasté.

The Christ Energy

Q: Most of my life I’ve been looking at the Christ story and the Jesus story.

I wondered if you could make some comments about the truest nature of resurrection and what the point of practicing that in Jesus’ life was as a message to us?

A: The main message was that Christ needed to – in order to interact with people – needed to touch in as a human being and actually wanted to enjoy the experience of being human.

At the same time the message of the resurrection is that our bodies should not be a hindrance to anything – any expansion or any level of consciousness that we are able to recognize in ourselves.

Q: Quite a demonstration I’d say.

And then it gets me how Christ has manifested in human form, talked about love and peace and compassion and all these things. And as soon as he passes, mankind uses him as a justification for war, right and wrong, all of that.

Is that just human fallacy? Or how does that all come about? Why is the message so easily lost?

A: Christ would not have minded, for that is exactly the energy Christ came here to — even “came here” isn’t the right word — Christ made Itself known to help lift.

The fact that it gets activated is all a part of the process.

And you might do well to begin to recognize that besides that energy that was activated there was also the energy that does kind of “get” what Christ is about.

And that energy is also activated here on earth and it IS making itself known.

And rather than be bothered by the other you may do well to tap into the lighted ones who are going to — by their attraction — strengthen the Christ energy.

Christ’s Return

Q: So how true is the belief that Christ’s next return will be as warrior? Is that the continuum of dealing with the activation? Or what’s that all about?

A: A part of the Christ energy is warrior energy, and the way it will manifest is that those who resonate with that part of the Christ will use that energy of the Christ but not everyone will.

For the Christ energy will not be seen as a singular type of energy.

It is already all around you and manifesting in many different ways.

Through some it manifests as pure love, through some it manifests as the warrior, for some it manifests as the scholar. The Hindus did have great wisdom when they began to recognize the many different faces of God and that is in a sense what you will see, what you can see happening.

Q: People imagine that as appearing as 1) Jesus coming back, but 2) as just a single personality returning with that.

One of my teachers said it would be more a group formation, or maybe the truest group formation is all of mankind and it’s not so easily recognizable that that’s happening. I mean, how do you see that re-manifesting?

Christ as Distributed Points of Light

A: I do see it more like that. The group — group might be a little misleading because in many ways it’s not an organized group that is aware of all its other counterparts, but it truly will be a more distributed form this time, you even see it reflected in the technology.

And that again is not a coincidence. It’s the energy that is manifesting.

The way consciousness is manifesting on this earth at present is very distributed. Distributed points of light, essentially. Which all go to make the one Christ.

Q: Well, my teacher referred to it as the networks of light.

A: That’s a great way to put it; it’s quite different than the way it was manifested when Jesus walked the earth.

Q: Right. It seems to me, it’s almost a hindrance that so many people are looking for a singular personality that they worship and look to for savior-ship. It’s almost like that interferes with just seeing it more in the way you put it.

A: Again, the real power lies in the Christ consciousness and that’s where to put the focus.

And those who are still operating from mistaken ideas are not really a match to the power of the Christ consciousness. In other words, not such a hindrance as you might think.

A Cell in the Body of Christ

Q: Right, I understand.

So, as far as my role, I’m basically a cell in the body of Christ and can support the nature of that through what I’ve been given in terms of either energy, perspective, feelings, thoughts?

A: That’s a perfect analogy, for each cell in a body has its own mission, as do you.

And you are alive and vibrant with the Christ energy. And how you contribute is quite unique.

Worship and Devotion

Q: Tell me some things about the whole idea of worship. It seems to me that this whole thing of worshipping is sort of a man-made idea. Or, what is the real true essence of that as far as a relationship with Christ?

A: The true essence of worship could be better known as devotion, which is a heart energy. And it’s a connection from the heart center, and that really is a better way to think of it.

Q: So staying devoted to my conscious connection with the Christ energy and trying to live that as sincerely as I can, I guess.

A: Yes.

Q: Devotion’s a good word. So devotion’s kind of a sincere servitude?

A: Right, that’s a good way to put it. And a respect, and appreciation.

Q: Ya, and I guess that of course it’s not my job to make sure things manifest the way they should, I just play my part as the cell…

A: Oh that would be quite the burden!

Q: LOL, ya… ya.. ya…….

Unfolding Over Time

Q: I don’t know how sensitive you are to dates and time but clearly there’s some movement in this area certainly in my lifetime, and certainly in the area of activation in terms of what needs to be addressed. Jesus referred to it as birthing pains.

How long do you see things sort of continuing on until let’s say we sort of “get it”? I don’t know how else to put it.

[Me: Here I thought I got distracted but essentially there was no answer/info forthcoming. The questioner could feel that too, that there's just no answer to this.]

Q: That’s fine, I get that. It’s just a continuing unfoldment. It’s not a goal, it’s not a point in time.

[Me: Yes, if anything, that's what I was getting. That it's not going to all of a sudden be real obvious. In fact the vision I got was like all this greenery and people so the greenery kind of means a lushness and an aliveness, and people beginning to work more in communion with the earth, and just a respectful connection with Mother Earth. And it's gradual. It's incremental. And so that's what I got. And as far as when -- just now when I said "as far as when" the numbers I saw were like 100-200 years. It's longer than we might hope. It's a ways in the future when we're really living in harmony.]

Q: That kind of makes sense. It seems like it would take generations to become a more massively conscious effort. [Me: Yes, that's what I saw.] Ya, that makes sense. As a human sometimes it’s so easy to expect immediate certainty and the whole biblical proportions thing where people imagine things occurring in seconds instead of years.

Look With New Eyes

Q: Anyway, because of Easter, and resurrection… I assume after the resurrection, Jesus walked the earth just at a higher vibration. Is that why people maybe didn’t fully see him or recognize him?

A: Yes. Part of the idea is that, well, actually going back to what you said: “recognize” is a perfect word, for the idea is that in order to experience your higher self you need to be aware that it may not look like what you expect it to. So recognize is kind of a tricky thing.

Q: That’s interesting because I feel like I’ve spent most of my years of light-work trying to recognize my own higher, and I’ve gotten a little closer, feeling a little more unified — and you’ve actually helped me with that. But it still seems a little elusive. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m making it too mental.

A: Maybe it’s because it’s not what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong thing. That’s what I’m trying to say about Jesus. That people see what they’re expecting to see and this was different.

It’s to see without anticipating what it will look like. To look with new eyes.

Q: I feel like I’ve gotten into this little quandary where I’m trying too hard to surround myself… or sense… or feel connected to my own higher.

Do you have any comments that can help me in that area?

A: You can set the intention to connect with it and then see what’s there.

Connect with what’s there without it needing to be what you’re expecting.

Q: Ya, it’s tough sometimes.

A: Well, if you’re understanding me correctly it should be anything but tough, for whatever is there is there.

Q: Hmm, ya.

A: You don’t need to make a certain thing occur.

Q: Ya, that’s easy to get caught up in that. Okay, I’ll take a look at that, thanks.

If you have any last comments I’d appreciate it.

You Are Rising Right Now

A: The only final comment that I would make is that you also are rising at this time.

Allow it to happen. Don’t expect it to look a certain way. Just see what that means to you. Just do as you’ve been taught: think, let, experience, observe. And knock the little anticipation right out of there. And just see what’s happening, for you are rising right now.

It’s part of your intention and it’s your intention because it’s a part of what that cell’s mission is.

And so, embrace it on this Easter day, this day of rising, this day of resurrection.

Q: Thank-you and I love your messages. Whatever I’ve consciously assimilated at this point I will try to continue into this evening.

Your words are so simple, straight-forward, and just really powerful. They help me see a little clearer every time. Thank-you so much.

A: Thank-you, and you don’t need to try to do anything. Just relax. What’s meant to happen will just happen. Okay?
