Welcome to 2018! If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is growing your spiritual awareness, check out the new on-line daily course from Stacey and Jack Stephens at Soul Self Living.
Stacey’s channels from a higher entity group called the Ancient Ones has been released in a series of books over the past several years. I’ve enjoyed the peace and wisdom they provide in this chaotic world.
Now many messages have been streamed lined into a 365 day online course for spiritual students entitled A Year to Awaken Your Soul to take on the go. They can be accessed on phones, laptops, tablets–anywhere, anytime you need a bit of wisdom from on high.
I’ve incorporated the program over the past week into my morning meditation routine. They are just long enough to get your mind ready for prayer and contemplation.
The Ancient Ones not only teach spiritual principles, but they promote positive concepts for creating a better society. Messages emphasize taking care of the planet, caring for each other, and manifesting a brighter future for all of humanity.
Be part of the Light! Visit the Awaken Your Soul program at Soul Self Living today and start 2018 with joy and hope.

Will car dealerships, parking lots, and traffic jams soon be quaint pictures from the past?

My meditation notebooks are getting filled with some interesting, “out there,” thoughts. Increasingly, when I look back over them, I have practically no conscious memory of writing them down. The information in this message from September 17, 2017, refers to cars changing the planet. A Treehugger article today paralleled the ideas. Time will tell how prescient these thoughts may be.
Supernal Journal ~ September 17, 2017
Cars are at the forefront of changing the lives on the planet. This process began over 100 years ago and continues today. They bring the world’s population together, mix them up, drive the economies.
Now, the cars are changing again. They will drive the world away from the control of oil, oil exploration, and oil exploitation. The need to disturb Gaia to suck the oil will diminish. This will happen more quickly than anticipated.
The ripple effect on economic factors will be felt around the world. Some will benefit, others will not make the transition. Pray for the transition of the vehicles. This will make it easier.
TREEHUGGER Magazine November 8, 2017 quotes former GM Vice Chair, Bob Lutz:
“It saddens me to say it, but we are approaching the end of the automotive era. The auto industry is on an accelerating change curve. For hundreds of years, the horse was the prime mover of humans and for the past 120 years it has been the automobile. Now we are approaching the end of the line for the automobile because travel will be in standardized modules.”

What will the next era of transportation look like? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

It’s 2017, five years since the Shift of 2012, the very beginning of a 25,000 year cycle. While some were hoping for a beautiful lift of consciousness for all of humanity– the end of strife, war, and violence–it’s clearly not working out that way. Caught in the grinding gears of Shift, we have entered a time de-struction. Old institutions, technology, political models, education systems aren’t working anymore. Collapse and change is everywhere on a global scale.
How about on a personal level? Have you noticed old things falling away from your life? Is there an increase in deaths around you? Are long term relationships falling apart? There may be someone you’ve considered a life-long friend who suddenly drops you. Another friend reveals political and social thinking so divisive, there appears to be no common ground. Jobs are changing, relatives are moving away, churches are splitting.
The nonsensical notion to “Make America Great Again,” reveals the national fear of change. Many want to “go back.” But, the Shift is upon us. There is no going back. As individuals we can either consciously recognize this reality and make plans to move forward or get stuck in resistance and denials.
Grief, fear, and pessimism can overwhelm us and drag us into apathy, which, of course, only makes things worse. In my case, several unexpected deaths have occurred in my circle of acquaintance, close family members moved far away, my inner circle of friends is changing and I’m still adjusting to widowhood.
As Elsa in Frozen sings, Let It Go. Whatever is no longer working, whether it be a relationship, job, community group or political affiliation, we need to release it. Elsa had been hiding her true self and trying to fulfill other people’s expectations. She couldn’t do it anymore and sings her iconic song. For a while she lost her family, friends, and home, but ultimately she created a new reality for herself that allowed her to be free.
I share this message I received during meditation this week, as I think it applies to many:
This is a time of incubation, gestation. A new life is growing, but birth is not yet ready. Do not despair that you feel unproductive. In truth, you are in the process of production in unseen ways. It is still a period of letting old things, old relationships, old versions of yourself go. Clean the space to make ready for the new.
Finish your tasks at hand. Get your life in order. Enjoy the quiet obscurity of the moment. It takes time for the stars to align. Then the next era will begin.
Spiritual Energy Coach, Lee Harris, offers months Energy Updates. I found his update for November particularly insightful. Give it a listen:
So, whatever you are resisting, whatever grievances you are holding, release them. In that way you will clear a path to new opportunities and relationships to enrich your life.
Be like Elsa ~ Let It Go.
As the veil between dimensions thins, we will be developing new approaches to life, death, and beyond. Thanks to Ellis Nelson for posting this interview on her site. Read and enjoy!

As Hurricane Harvey churned toward Texas, I sat upon my yoga mat in my Hawaiian apartment meditating on the gathering storm. Could it be calmed, dissipated or diverted as I’ve seen mass prayers seem to do in other weather events? I prayed and asked. The answer was NO. Snap shots played on my mental movie screen. An unstoppable force of wind, rain, and destructive floods. People caught in harm’s way. Buildings, businesses, homes underwater.
From an esoteric standpoint, I wasn’t surprised, even as my gut felt sickened by the coming toll on thousands of families. The predictions of this year have been unfolding. The Year of the Rooster. All the political figures crowing (or tweeting) of their greatness and might. Doreen Virtue had prayed “protect the children” for May, the month of the London concert attack on young music fans. She predicted riots in the streets throughout the year and a cataclysmic event near the fall. Hurricane Harvey fits the bill.
The hurricane isn’t simply a weather event. It is an energetic event. Some might call it an Act of God. Yet, cosmically, it may be a case of like attracting like. The energy emanating from the US this year has been turbulent and destructive. Angry people expressing themselves in marches, profanity, and violence. Gun addiction and hate crimes on the rise. We’ve created a whirlwind of hatred and frustration, sending it into the very atmosphere, calling it our way. Gaia listened and delivered.
We humans are powerful creatures, unconsciously manifesting the daily events of our lives. It’s easy to see the friends around us calling forth the bad relationships and financial disasters. Not so easy to see our own fatal attractions. Collectively, we also manifest as a family, community, city, state and nation. The power of the manifesting is daunting at the national and global level. Why, you might even get a huge “once in a thousand years” hurricane.
“The hurricane isn’t simply a weather event. It is an energetic event. Some may call it an Act of God. Yet, cosmically, it may be a case of like attracting like.”
So, now the test before us is what kind of energy do we send out to deal with this national crisis? Does mob mentality rule? Every man for himself, the looters are loosed on Houston, followed by martial law? Or do we take a path of rescue, reconciliation, and healing?
We’re at a pivotal point, a crossroads. We can continue down a path of destruction and hatred, thus calling more destruction and hatred our way. I suppose a nuclear bomb would take it to the next level.
Or we can collectively choose peace, kindness, compassion and love. Hurricane Harvey presents an opportunity to bring out our highest nature or debase humanity even further. Which way will we go?
Of course, I’m a romantic at heart, a believer in happy endings after the Black Moment. A spiritual Pollyanna. I have hope that we can collectively come to a place of reconciliation, help our neighbors, treat others as we would like to be treated.
If we set our minds and hearts to it, we can manifest a much better world. It takes an act of will, and then Love put into action. It begins with you and me, one person at a time. My greatest hope is that suffering from Hurricane Harvey takes us collectively to a place of redemption of our national soul and makes us a more compassionate people.
God bless Texas, and all of us.
