In my novels, Awakening Earth Chronicles, I asked the question: what would it take to unite all people on Earth? It was a much bigger challenge than I realized! However, something big happened in my story that I would not have thought of, or dreamed of, without that focused thought. Writing does that, allows me to go much deeper into a subject.
At this point in time, as I look outward, it feels as if we, as a people, are more separated and less willing to agree with another persons views. But maybe we have finally reached a place where we are becoming more connected to our own truth. In my novels, my characters become very aware of their connection to the consciousness of Earth/Gaia. The voice they hear within and in their dreams leads each person and they become aware that each person has a special wisdom and all their responses are needed to arrive at the biggest picture of any challenge. This voice needs to be spoken, made audible, by each person. They do not have the same thoughts, are not clones, but rather each person has answers from their own journey that are needed.
If one person is afraid, doesn’t trust or is unwilling to voice, to share, their special piece of this puzzle there is a hole, information that is needed is not available to the whole and the steps taken without this important piece may lead the whole group astray. Perhaps we are looking outward for agreement rather than experiencing the shift in consciousness where we see important pieces of information from each person we didn’t have before.
Beliefs are a fascinating aspect of our visible/invisible world. I had two big wake up realizations walking on fire. The first time I walked on fire. I went to watch others do it not believing that I could or would walk on those hot ashes myself. The fire walk started by burning a huge pile of cut up timber and it took hours for it to burn down into a pile of ashes that were then raked into a long trail 6 to 8 feet across and 10 to 12 feet long. I looked at those red hot coals and thought, hahaha, not me.
The trainer was first to walk slowly down that red hot trail and we were all glued to his experience. He never flinched and he showed us his feet, he didn’t get burned. The next two fire walkers were children, a little girl about 7 years old and her brother 9 years. They ran down the red hot coals holding hands. The exhilaration was shining on their faces. At the end of their walk they both showed us their their feet to prove that they didn’t get burned.
Wow, I told myself, if 2 little kids can do this, surely I can. I realized at that moment how much my beliefs were connected to seeing what I desired to do … acted out for me .. to make it real, to make it visible. I waited until I heard a voice within me and felt a visceral feeling in my heart say “okay, it’s time, we can do this,” then I felt ready and did walk on those hot coals. and I didn’t get burned.It was an awesome experience.
My second biggest lesson that day was watching their 16 year old sister. It would be her first time to walk on fire too. She watched her siblings run down that red hot bed of coals and obviously thought (as I did) that if they could do it, she could also. So she ran down the bed of coals … but she burned both of her feet quite severely. She didn’t wait to hear the voice within, she listened and acted from a “voice of competition.”
My next big lesson came at my 3rd fore walk. it was mostly women and the man inspired to create the fire walk. When it was taking perhaps too long for women to start walking on the fire he walked up to 2 women and offered an arm to each one. They moved their attention from listening to their inner voice to listening to his voice. They both got burned. Our inner/ outer awareness of our attention is very important.
My biggest lessons about belief are: Take time to ask questions of my inner voice, listen for response and before I take action.
So much of our lives are invisible not just to others but to ourselves as well. Our great aha’s disappear without a trace of evidence that they were visible to us in a flash. A flash, our mind’s eye saw, but chances are others around us did not. It was invisible. We say we are a factual people and yet our world is being invaded with fake news and it becomes more and more difficult to assess what is “real and factual” and what is “fake.” Much of the “real” history of our country was left out, crossed off, deleted and yet we were told it was factual.
I see that the transformation period we are entering is an opportunity to learn to trust ourselves, verses the authorities outside of our selves, that we have been programmed to believe had more valuable information, information we could trust as “real.” But much “factual” information has been swayed to benefit the giver rather than the receiver.
How do we know or learn what is true/real and what isn’t?
We must learn to trust our instincts again, listen with ears that are connected to our intuition. Taste with acute awareness, see with our outer eyes and our inner eye. We must reconnect to the intelligence of Earth energy/life and learn to use both our visible and invisible aspects/abilities and trust that all life can become part of our awareness. If we ask questions of each living Being we will receive answers that may not agree with what we had been told was “factual/real”. The greatest minds learned and so can we. When we learn to trust and connect to this huge energy resource we realize that we don’t all get the same answers! We get what we need for our own transformation. As we reclaim our connection to this huge energy source our ability to trust changes.
