The June energies

Dear Ones,

Everywhere I turn, I read that the June energies are transformative and supportive beyond measure; they will push forward and will help us achieve the ‘inner metamorphoses’ we are currently working on, at times unconsciously.

With a solar eclipse on its way, and the summer solstice approaching, and marking the longest days of the year in the northern hemisphere, that is not surprising.

It is time to blossom into our summer, dear Ones, so that we can fully express ourselves.

I leave you with two excerpts. One from the Arcturian Council and the other from Master Hilarion.

Happy June!

Solar phenomenon at Montsegur, June 20, 2017

“We are so very happy to be able to give you our perspective on the energies that we can feel coming in for humanity and planet Earth in the month of June. In many ways, June is a month of new beginnings. It is a month of you being able to receive energies that will assist you in making the big changes that you want to make in your own lives. These are very supportive energies that are coming, but they are also energies that are meant to stir things up.

…And that is something else these energies will help you to do; they will help you to lower your guard, to let go of your resistance to change. These energies will help you to release blockages that prevent you from living more in the flow, and being in the flow means making adjustments, making changes, and knowing when the timing is right for those changes. You are the ones, always, creating every aspect of your lives and your realities, and when you want and/or need change to occur, there are those who can help around you in the nonphysical, and they do. We all help as much as we can, but ultimately you have that free will, and that free will gives you a choice.

…You will feel these energies coming up from Mother Earth, but also coming down from the heavens, as the help that you have all been requesting is being delivered in the perfect timing and in the perfect packaging. And of course, the more you connect with the Earth and sky, the easier it will be for you to receive. Use your bodies; use your ability to ground, to be silent, and to quiet your minds, and you will maximize the efficiency and the power of these energies of June 2021.”

Beloved Ones, I come on the wings of Love.

Life as you have known it is changing from moment to moment. Those of you who are on an accelerated higher frequency path are beginning to experience massive changes in many facets of your lives.  Every part of it is in flux as the new frequencies do their work of dislodging everything and everyone that is no longer a fit to whom you are becoming –your Eternal Divine Self– who will allow no external force to take you off path. It is simply a time to step back and let go of the steering wheel. [i.e., trust Spirit] You cannot go backward but only forward as the metamorphoses take place. Use your own judgment–you are the best barometer of what is right for you. Doing something externally is not always the answer and a long period of introspection might be needed first before making a decision.

Turning oneself around

Dear Ones,

The theme this week is very much along the lines of “patience” and “resilience;” two key attributes that we touched upon in the past two weeks.

This morning, as I reflected on the ‘lack of love’ that some of us experienced in our childhoods, an image from the cartoon Zootopia came to the fore.

An image about someone turning himself around, and beautifully, I shall add.

That someone is the fox Gideon Grey. Early on in the movie, Judy Hopps is attacked by Gideon who’s stolen movie tickets from her friends. She fights valiantly, gets the tickets back and inherits a big scratch on her face.

Years later, when she’s feeling desperate about the situation in Zootropolis, she returns to her roots and visits her parents in the fields they are tending. They are fruit merchants and Gideon Grey has become a great pastry chef and one of their partners. What a turnaround!

Upon seeing Judy, he apologizes. “I had a lot of self-doubt and it manifested itself in the form of unchecked rage and aggression. I was a major jerk.”

What does it take to turn oneself around?

Attributes of honesty with oneself, courage and determination come to the fore. I am sure there are many more, that are like little helpers along the way. Once we determine to move forward along our path, with whatever endeavor we have in mind and with eyes wide open, we often find unexpected ‘companions’ to help us out.

Here is a wonderful quote from Goethe.

“Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative or creation, there is an elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too… whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it.  Action has magic, grace, and power in it.”

Another attribute to cultivate: resilience

Dear Ones,

As I thought this morning of another attribute we could use for gardening and watering our life, resilience came.

Gently and quietly. Just as a seed that decides it is time to sprout and see ‘what’s up there.’

In some ways, resilience could be construed as the ability to withstand bad weather and reach higher. Just like a beautiful plant seeking the light of the sun.

Resilience is a quality of the human spirit; one we shall cherish and one we shall teach and share.

Mystically, as I searched through my computer for posts mentioning resilience, the two that showed up mentioned the Master Saint Germain, in one way (a book) or another (a channeling).

How interesting!

Let’s bask in our resilience this Thursday, dear Ones.

Master R began to speak in a low rumbling voice.

“Welcome initiates of the Holy Temple. We’ve come here to listen and see. All of you who walk the path of pathlessness have lost something or someone dear to them to get here. Even if that is your self. We are under no illusions. The path from the dark places to the light requires great courage, perseverance and resilience. 

Diary of a Yogi by Guan Shi Yin

Rejoice, dear Humankind! Congratulate your brethren who have continued to fight for their right to live in dignity and freedom! Join with them in your hearts, with compassion for their suffering and awe for the resilience that is the human spirit. The spirit of cooperation and Love is rising, and you, Lightworkers, are the ones who will nurture and support the impulses toward Love and Freedom you see around the world.

Cultivating patience

Dear Ones,

At a time when spring is in full bloom in the northern hemisphere, I came across a beautiful quote (see below), in both French and English, that made me reflect on the importance of “Patience on the Path.”

Patience being one of the essential requirements of the pilgrim, along with humility and perseverance.

I am saying this especially because I have a tendency to realize and understand ‘things’ in retrospect. And perhaps I am not the only one.

On April 27th, I experienced some symptoms that were reminiscent of the cold I usually get once in a while when I get very tired. Except that I did not have a sore throat, which is a key ingredient in the mix.

Why was it missing? I asked myself, not understanding this sudden karmic episode.

It is only a week later, on a very limpid day, that I received most of the answers and connected inwardly to the very life my symptoms were associated with. There was a feeling of liberation and that may have been a liberation from karma!

Master Saint Germain would certainly say so!

I wish you well, dear Ones, and look forward to our cultivation this Thursday!

“Be patient”

When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.

Martine Batchelor, Buddhist teacher and writer

« Soyez patient »

Lorsque vous plantez des graines dans un jardin, vous ne les déterrez pas chaque jour pour voir si elles ont germé. Vous veillez seulement à les arroser et à enlever les mauvaises herbes ; vous savez que les graines pousseront en leur temps. De la même manière, faites simplement votre pratique quotidienne et cultivez la bonté de votre cœur. Abandonnez toute impatience et à la place, contentez-vous de créer les causes du bien ; les résultats viendront lorsqu’ils seront prêts.”

Martine Batchelor, enseignante et auteur bouddhiste

The freshness of a new month

A simple theme this week, dear Ones,

as we start another month with many flowers in full bloom. The beauty of spring is real in the northern hemisphere.

What does freshness mean to us and how do we carry it in our hearts?

And where is it going to lead us?

Perhaps a bit more inner exploration this month?

Looking forward to exploring together this Thursday!

Love & much Light.

Celebrating what is pushing right back within us

Dear Ones,

You will need to scroll and read down to the bottom of this post to find the meaning and reason for this week’s title.

Today, the words of the French writer Albert Camus came back to the fore of my consciousness; words you most certainly know:

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.”

The Lord Ashton Memorial in Lancaster, England

Perhaps because of the association I made this month with the “dark night of the soul” which—you may agree if you’ve experienced one—truly feels like a “deep, freezing winter.”

The freezing of one’s world—for what purpose but renewal or rebirth, one might ask.

So today, thanks to the long quote that was offered early this month by my friend Tatjana, I would like to celebrate with you what “is pushing right back within.”

Within each and everyone of us, that is.

Be it that we are experiencing (and projecting) winter, prejudice, jealousy or any other mental ailments.

Celebrating that gold within will have one major effect—to make it shine even brighter!

In our hearts first, reflected that it will be in the hearts and smiles of many other folks.

Albert Camus’s words

My dear,

In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.

In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.

I realized, through it all, that…

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me there is something stronger—something better, pushing right back.

For fear to be dissolved

For fear to be dissolved, in everyone’s heart and all over the planet

Dear Ones,

The phrasing of the title of this week’s communion is different. Strikingly different. It is the result of my having started to work with the Violet Flame some eleven days ago. I started decreeing and am also doing a meditation every day, The Violet Flame Meditation for Spiritual Transformation.

Nothing special happened for ten days as I was doing this recitation around 4:00 in the afternoon. Then, suddenly this morning, the nudge came to do it ‘first thing in the day.’

Fear was the ‘target’ of my meditation–or rather the dissolution of fear all over the planet. My intention for the meditation was,

For fear to be dissolved, in everyone’s heart and all over the planet.

Consciousness works its way up, in all of us, with or without our knowing. And once a knowing comes, it is time to celebrate. Such a knowing (or confirmation) came yesterday morning through the reading of an article by my friend Gaia Sophia. It finally explained why I was at times ‘impregnated’ with fears–fears whose origins I couldn’t apprehend.

I specifically remember one instance last September as our son and I were walking to the nearby mall. As we passed the gate that separates our street from the mall’s parking lot, I saw a sign on a pole. A teenager had been missing for a few days and his parents were desperately looking for him. A strong fear suddenly engulfed me, out of who knows where. The fear of losing our son. It lasted for a minute or two. It didn’t make any human sense to me, yet the fear felt real, constraining as it is when our hearts shrink when we take notice of an impending danger.

I was able to share that experience in a group that night and the leader suggested the fear was coming from the collective unconscious. Although she appeared to be right, it did make that fear and others less threatening.

The fear of lack is another of those fears that has accompanied me for some time, with insidious bravery, I shall say.

Feel free to read the excerpt below from my friend Gaia Sophia, and her whole “descension” article if you’d like. It may make sense to you, or it may not. And perhaps you experienced some of her symptoms, wondering the ‘heck’ about their nature.

When all is said and experienced (which is not the case, yet, as we know), the important factor is that humanity is purging itself of its unhealed karma and I believe most of us have a role to play in this beautiful orchestration. A role to play, primarily through (or with) the Light that we shine.

I would say, the more conscious of the process we are, the better. Yet the Divine–or whomever is orchestrating the purge–is not offering us a heads-up!

But, in retrospect, why would it need to?

I shall see you on Thursday, dear Ones.

“Due to the amount of energy being purged by the collective during the dark night, it was necessary to have conduits in place in the lower realms in order to transmute the energy as it was being released from the collective. This allowed stabilization of the planetary Light body and an expedited shift in the collective consciousness to occur as the Light bodies of the ascended beings who had descended could accommodate massive amounts of energy through their vessels. These conduits had to be ascended beings with fully operating HUman Light bodies due to the demands of the Light placed upon them mentally, physically and emotionally. Those who have experienced the dark night themselves can relate to the intensity and sometimes insane experience that it is. This is what many of us have had to experience through our own Light body as a conduit of the collective dark night. Only this time it was experienced on a massive scale and the emotional fallout was intensified because we did not know a specific source for the emotions or energy that we were feeling. Physically, in my own vessel, the hormone levels would spike dramatically during each collective release to signal physical changes to accommodate the release. These dramatic shifts generated emotional instability and this created disharmony in my reality as I worked to transmute the energy and understand what was happening to me. It was not very clear in the beginning what was going on and as all things has fully revealed itself after the experience.”

Revisiting acceptance and resignation

Good afternoon, dear Ones,

A week ago, I touched upon the concepts of “acceptance” and “resignation.” Yet they were not central to the theme of our communion. Grace was. Grace is, still.

This week, somehow, I came to reflect upon these two concepts in the light of a friend’s story. I knew this friend had been suffering from a malfunctioning arm yet didn’t have many details about the extent of her injury. And didn’t know the outcome after a long process of physical therapy as she had not mentioned her arm in our previous conversations.

Mystically, before I reconnected with these two concepts, I came across the passage below from the Arcturian Group. I read it two days ago, Monday. What I am quoting here caught my inner eye, so to speak, yet it was only the beginning of a deeper reflection that took me where I am today, after I put the pieces in the context of my friend’s story.

“Many and varied experiences constitute everyone’s journey to realization. Even the smallest life experiences expand awareness and become one’s state of consciousness. Everyone is at their own unique place along the journey toward realization so the negative experiences that you may lovingly want to remove from another may very well be the very experiences the person needs and chose pre-birth for spiritual growth.

This doesn’t means ignoring suffering while shouting, “It’s just illusion.” Rather it means that you do what you are intuitively guided to do while keeping in mind that something more than what outer appearances would indicate is taking place. Always allow your intuition to guide you in these matters because, for some, the experience of total failure may be an integral part of their soul plan. Always honor the free will of others even when you can easily see a better way.”

This passage is very profound and constitutes an invitation to reflect on ‘every day suffering’ at a level we don’t often apprehend, except in the case of sudden injuries or life-threatening incidents.

Perhaps this passage is an answer to those who ask God, “why is this happening to me?”

Or, put it another way, “what did I do to deserve that?”

These are fair questions, I believe; questions we can rarely understand–not to mention answer–within the context of a single life. There ought to be more ‘somewhere’ for us to be able to put together the pieces of the puzzle of our life.

Here is my friend’s story. Let’s call her Christina.

Christina is in her early seventies. Three years ago, she fell on her shoulder during an outing. She thought she only bruised a ligament and could recover fairly quickly yet, as it turned out, she needed a full shoulder replacement. A skilled surgeon took care of her in the town where she lived. Unbeknownst to him, apparently, he severed a vital nerve while replacing Christina’s shoulder. She rapidly realized that her recovery was not going as planned and that she couldn’t use her arm. She consulted many specialists and eventually underwent another delicate procedure in the summer of 2019 with a nerve grafting expert. There were high hopes for recovery after such a complex surgery yet, almost two years down the road, there is still no progress and the damage appears to be permanent.

Christina’s story hit home last Saturday when another person told us about her situation. She even said that Christina understood her disability was “part of her path.”

Perhaps it feels like acceptance, perhaps it doesn’t, knowing I haven’t talked to my friend lately and may not in the next few days.

What came back to me today were the words I wrote last week about acceptance.

“Acceptance, on the other hand, means that we are proactive, willing and opening up to possibilities. Opening up to what might lie beyond our grasp in a situation or in an encounter with a person.”

It doesn’t seem that my friend’s story fits my understanding of “acceptance,” does it?

Yet who knows what these “possibilities” might be? And who knows what may ‘truly’ lie “beyond our grasp”?

The thought that came to mind, connecting with last week’s theme, is Grace.

What is possible, in Christina’s and many others’ situation, is the crystallization of a miracle–a miracle of Grace.

Let’s create the space ONE MORE TIME for Grace to shower us this Thursday!

Inviting Grace to join in

The insight that percolated this morning was about surrendering; surrendering to what is, to what will be, or to what wants to manifest.

How do we do that, dear Ones, when we don’t know what the future holds for us individually, and for humanity as a whole?

In a similar vein, I was listening to a lecture a couple days ago that distinguished between “acceptance” and “resignation.”

I’m sure you can feel the difference. Resignation means, in some contexts, that we have our back against the wall and that we may be forced to do something. Unwillingly and with no other choice.

Acceptance, on the other hand, means that we are proactive, willing and opening up to possibilities. Opening up to what might lie beyond our grasp in a situation or in an encounter with a person.

And who knows what might happen when we let go of that grasp, especially a mental grasp? A grasp that often populates our minds and ‘restricts’ access to higher states of Grace and Divine Will.

Do we think that Grace can move in once we “open up” and “accept?”

It is beautiful to invite Grace in our lives and the more we do it, the more people, in fact the whole world, will benefit.

Let’s create the space for Grace to be with us this Thursday!

How many more crucifixions and resurrections?

Dear Ones,

From a post I read today:

“The Christian celebration of Easter is soon to take place all over the world. However as with the Christmas story, Easter is not the story of just one man but is rather everyone’s story. At some point in every soul’s journey, there comes a crucifixion which has been called the “dark night of the soul.” It is the experience of having one’s foundation crumble without warning, leaving the person floundering in doubt, confusion, mental anguish, resistance and questions.”

Somehow this concept of a dark night of the soul feels tangible, despite its touch of “numbness,” I would say. It certainly was 30 years ago or so when my world collapsed.

And guess what, I bounced back, not quite aware of any new reality or foundation. Simply witnessing the past leaving, or rather oozing, through the pores of my soul.

Here is a link to the post where you can read a bit more of what happened to me, if interested. Such a deep journey into the unknown, or into the unfathomable. And one of my rare posts in both French and English!

Will this Easter period be more meaningful than any others?

With many more resurrections along the way?

Because of the new age we are in?

The Arcturian Group message of March 28, 2021, signaled this upcoming period of crucifixions and resurrections. Let’s use the plural here!

“The Christian celebration of Easter is soon to take place all over the world. However as with the Christmas story, Easter is not the story of just one man but is rather everyone’s story. At some point in every soul journey, there comes a crucifixion which has been called the “dark night of the soul.” It is the experience of having one’s foundation crumble without warning leaving the person floundering in doubt, confusion, mental anguish, resistance, and questions.”

“After a period of suffering (three days in the tomb) and futile attempts to restore what once was, there comes the realization that familiar outer solutions simply no longer work and at this point the inner search begins. As new insights unfold, he/she begins to see their old foundation from a new and higher perspective which allows them to build a new and more evolved foundation (resurrection). There are many crucifixions and Easters along the path to realization, each one serving to lift a person to their next level.”

These last few lines, toward the end of the message, also rang utterly true!

“Free will allows all to have choice and choice is unique to every individual. Everyone has had different experiences over their many lifetimes making every person’s lessons and levels of spiritual awareness different. Never feel that you must cajole, force or trick another into believing as you do out of the belief that you have the higher and better truth. Love means honoring everyone’s journey through the realization that all paths lead up the mountain and come together at the top.  

Awakening to the truth of ONEness cannot be avoided forever because Consciousness is and will continue to express ITself infinitely even when ITs expressions are colored by false concepts and beliefs. It is inevitable that at some point a breakthrough in consciousness takes place for every person because no one can cease being what they are.

Many intellectually accept they are Divine expressions, but have not yet allowed themselves to actually BELIEVE it.

The time is now and you are ready to integrate– I am that I am.”
