Lift the Veil
Happy Hallow’s Eve! This is the time of year the veil between our physical world and the spiritual world is very thin such as the veil between the living and the deceased. The Catholic church even celebrates this time of the dead with All Saints day on November 1, All Souls day on November 2, and the rest of November dedicated to remembering the dead. The Samhain, part of the ancient Celtic harvest festivals, is believed partially responsible for the Christian adoption of the holiday. This ancient festival dates back over 2000 years. It celebrates the end of summer (the light part of the year) and the beginning of winter (the dark part of the year). Many of these celebrations are tied to the harvest of crops in the fall. Winter is meant to be a time of dormant rest for both the land and the people to replenish and renew for the spring … just like a bear’s hibernation!
The thinning veil between our physical world and our spiritual world is meant to be a time of joy not fear. It is a time to lovingly remember those who have gone before us. It is a time, maybe, to reconnect with our deceased loved ones through prayer or meditation. So, I’ll confess I remain open to all forms of spirituality that focus on love and light. I do not believe there is any one right religion or faith to follow. We all need to follow what feels right and connects with our heart. Given that, I have been to a few mediums to check it out so to speak. After my dad passed away in 2011, I went to one in 2012 with my sister with the intention of connecting with my dad. I had been to this person before and found her reading to be genuine. As we began, she asked if there was anyone I was hoping to communicate with and I said my dad. He didn’t come through at first. If you have had a “reading” before you know there are other spirits who might be anxious to speak with you. My grandfather came through first. Then she asked for my dad to come through if he would like – when they say “come through” they are talking about the veil. So, in the middle of this reading (she is very laid back) she starts laughing and saying wait a minute. She says my dad is having a hard time as this is his first time through the veil and she needs to help him. Then she started laughing again saying he says he has a joke for her did she want to hear it. I knew then and there that it was my dad. He was always making a joke if the opportunity arose! His presence wasn’t there long but it was so joyful and loving. She helped him to go back through the veil then explained how he was learning how the spiritual world worked since he was fairly new and that his spiritual vibration would strengthen over time. It is through vibration that the physical world and the spiritual world can communicate. The spiritual world is a much higher vibration than the physical world. For the spiritual world to communicate with the physical world they must learn to slow their vibration to ours.
As you can see the veil between the physical and spiritual can be loving and does not need to be scary. Vibration was discussed in the last post which talked about us keeping a higher vibration to be operating from love and light. The spiritual realm is made up of love and light which explains why they are at a much higher vibration than us. There is no need to worry or be scared as a human with the right of free will, you can say only those spirits with my highest and greatest good or only those with loving intention may come through to you. You have the right given by the law of free will to say no to dark spirits or energies. It is this right to say no to the dark side that we need to exercise more over all in our world. We need to collectively and consciously say no to the darkness of distortion, falsehoods, and evil in our world. When we collectively do this while also envisioning a world of truth, light and love our world will change. Our world will shift to the light when we collectively call it forth.
We must lift the veil of the illusion that we are separate from each other and from our one God source. Accepting we are divine spiritual beings connected to God and to each other frees us from the falsehoods, doubt, chaos, and fear the dark side wishes to control us with in our world. Accepting our birthright as children of God empowers us to be free to be all we can be, to call forth and create a world of light. Choice is ours by the law of free will. We can choose differently. We can see and acknowledge the darkness in our world and then consciously choose no, consciously choose a different path based in love for one another and for all.
What would happen in our world if we were to believe this new paradigm? What would happen if we feel the fear but step out in faith anyway? What would happen if we turned off the outside distractions instead focusing on our intuition otherwise known as our divine guidance system? I am interested in what you see or think about our world …. please comment below.
I am going to close with another excerpt I had written that puts the story of Adam and Eve and the power of doubt in our world in a whole new context:
God gave us more divinity in giving us a free will. Each of us has the free will to experience life as we choose. Yes, there are consequences to our choices and we will get into that later in the book. For now, it is important to know we live in a divine dichotomy of which we have free will which leads me to my next story. Everyone knows the story of Adam and Eve. The main players in the story are Adam, Eve, God and the snake. I have heard many people’s take on this classic but only one resonated with me and has stayed with me. In this sermon, the downfall for Adam and Eve was the doubt created by darkness from the snake. Remember, Adam and Eve were not living in a divine dichotomy at that point. They only knew good. God showed them all that was theirs to enjoy and live happily. God did warn them not to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge for it would not be good for them. The snake comes along representing evil. The snake creates doubt by encouraging Eve to eat fruit from the tree, imagine the following scenario. Eve’s first response to the snake is “No, God told us not to eat from the tree.” The snake is cleaver and manipulative. The snake asks Eve, “Did you hear God say this?” Eve says, “No she did not hear God say it. God said it to Adam and Adam told her.” The snake presses his point, “So you don’t know for sure if God said this himself?” Eve, only knowing truth and light as this point, says “Well no I did not hear it myself.” The snake plants more doubt, “So you’re not sure God said it, maybe Adam wants it for himself. If God has given you everything here, then why not this tree? You said you didn’t hear God say it. Go ahead Eve, try the fruit of the tree there must be something about this tree Adam is not telling you.” The snake creates enough doubt and questions for Eve, that she eats the fruit of the tree … and the divine dichotomy or duality begins. Adam and Eve now know love and fear; right and wrong; joy and pain; naked and clothed; light and dark; masculine and feminine. God did not stop Eve for He gave her free will just like you and me. He wasn’t angry. He understood the consequences of the action which we are all still living today – the challenge of living in the veil of duality. It is a parable of how living simply was made challenging without accepting God as the Source, the truth and instead listening to the doubt created by the snake.
Light Overcomes Dark
Light Overcomes Dark
There is a mad game of money going on in our world yet most of us are unaware it’s a game and we are the pawns. Unfortunately, the by product of this mad game has been people’s lives. A few of these games have been the cigarette industry, the banking investment industry, and the latest is the pharmaceutical industry. In all three of these cases the people at the top knew they were enslaving their customers to a lesser life leading in many cases to destroying their lives, however, they kept their dark game going since it meant more money for them. However, the light has exposed the first two and is shining brightly on the third.
The tobacco industry knew nicotine was addicting to the human brain. They knew what harm it could cause the human body. They knew once addicted, the customers would not be able to stop regardless of the affect on their lives. This dark game was finally brought into the light. The tobacco companies were made to pay. Advertisements to fully announce what nicotine does and what the tobacco companies did now play along with any advertisement for nicotine products because of their court settlement.
The banking and investment industry knew they were selling subpar investments based on shaky real estate mortgages. This was certainly a house of cards built on false information which involved banking, investment, insurance, real estate and the government. When it all came tumbling down in 2008 we were led into another distortion of the facts. Our government felt some of these companies were too big to fail due to the devastation it would cause in people’s lives which led them to prop up the companies. We have come into the light since these events to learn the truth of what went on including the players in this dark game. Many lives were forever changed from these events.
Now we are living the opioid crisis. Another dark game played on innocent lives. The shadow behind this game is the pharmaceutical industry. I am a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer. I see the effect on children with drug addicted parents regularly. I recently attended a training session on Opioid addiction and treatments. The session was very enlightening. This video was shown during the presentation to explain the history of the epidemic. The first five minutes discusses addition overall and then narrows in on the opioid crisis:
A few points to note from the video:
- Prior to the 1990’s opioids were mainly used for chronic pain in cancer patients
- Shift in the late 1990’s
- Pharmaceutical companies convince physicians that opioids were not addictive
- Push for opioids to be used for both acute and chronic pain
- Offices had to do satisfaction surveys which impacted their income
- Increase in the amount of prescriptions for opioids
OxyContin is highly addictive and its parent company Purdue Pharma knew it. (See https://www.foxnews.com/health/oxycontin-maker-placed-profits-over-people-lawsuit-reveals) Probably what is most unsettling to me is that same company is working to patent a drug to treat the addiction and reverse the damage done by its own oxycontin. (See http://fortune.com/2018/09/07/oxycontin-opioid-addiction-treatment-patent-richard-sackler-purdue-pharma/ ) Buprenorphine/Suboxone is one of the most effective drugs to treat the opioid addiction in a medically assisted treatment plan. Buprenorphine/Suboxone is highly regulated and restricted in its prescriptions.
The US leads all other countries in opioid abuse. “If you want to understand how we got here, there’s one simple explanation: It’s much easier in America to get high than it is to get help” a quote from the article The Opioid Epidemic, Explained (https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2017/8/3/16079772/opioid-epidemic-drug-overdoses)
Another disturbing fact I learned was fentanyl is now being laced into THC, marijuana. Fentanyl the other highly addictive drug being added by dealers into the street drugs is now in weed too. Why? The same reason it has been laced in many of the other drugs in the past few years. Known addiction means repeat customers. Fentanyl is highly addictive to the human brain. Imagine the effect of all those smoking weed to feel good because it is the non-addictive and won’t hurt you recreation drug. Laced with fentanyl this now becomes a lethal drug which will chemically alter the brain causing full addiction leading to the drug spiral to get a fix from anything or from anywhere… that is if it does not kill you first.
We all must wake up and stay awake! Ask questions. Dig deeper for the answers. Stay vigilant. When something seems wrong, not right, dishonest, then it probably is no matter how convincing the narrative might be. The good news is we are, as a collective whole, working to address the opioid crisis. The light has been turned on. Don’t be afraid to talk about it or tell your kids about it.
It is easy in times of stress, anxiety and fear to lose sight of universal principles that ground us and stabilize our world bringing peace and order to calm the worry and chaos that may be going on around us. One of these principles is that light always overcomes darkness. Darkness ceases to exist when the light is present. There are many spiritual teachings on the light overcoming the dark. In fact, in the bible alone there are multiple versus describing how light shines out of the darkness. In times of trial, hold on to the light. Be the light.
Rest in the Divine, Not in the Illusion
There is much talk about this October in the year 2018. Some say there is no coincidence to all that is happening in our world currently. Did you know October is National Preparedness Month? I didn’t. I just learned that in September. Now we have a Presidential Emergency Broadcast available that was tested yesterday October 3rd to allow our president to reach us directly in case of a national emergency. Just what are we preparing for this month?
Well there is certainly no shortage of conspiracy theories regarding what is called the deep state or the cabal. I am not quite sure what to believe in those theories. What I do know for sure is that dark corruption has eaten its way into the government, the church, the education system, into our everyday lives. Much of it is has been brought to the light recently while there is still more being unveiled.
What am I to believe? What am I to prepare for? I always come back to the light, to goodness, to God. When I place my worries in the hands of the divine I find peace otherwise I find myself living in fear of the unknown. While I may not know what is to come, I know that choosing to live in divine light gives me a sense of ease that all will be as it should. The best way I know to prepare for the unknown is to rest in the divine through prayer, through meditation, through music, by spending time in nature or any setting that brings me peace.
This reminds me of myself about 20 years ago, I used to watch the shows Dateline or 20/20. At that time my husband traveled for work regularly and I was home alone with the kids. I would regularly spook myself after watching those shows. One day I made the decision to stop watching those shows. Within a few weeks I no longer felt the unease and worry watching those shows had created for me. To this day I pay attention to the shows I watch and how they make me feel afterward. If I don’t feel at peace, then I don’t watch the show. This practice of turning off tv, movies, radio, music, etc. when I feel uncomfortable keeps me lighter, happier in life.
Divine = Light, Love + Peace
Illusion = Dark, Doubt + Fear
So, during this month of October 2018, rest in the divine. Choose the light over the dark. Choose love over fear. Choose peace over fighting. Remember, like attracts like so you won’t be alone. We are all beings of the light. We are one in and of God. Let’s go ahead and prepare by lighting the way.
Prayer for the Light
I ask this day for the light of love to show me the way,
I ask this day for the light of truth to shine,
I ask this day for my heart to be opened,
I ask this day for strength, courage, and wisdom to be the best I can be,
I ask this day for peace, for us all, for the highest and greatest good,
And so, it is,
Distortion and Illusion
We live in a world full of distortion and illusion from news to politics to religion to our purpose in this world. Remember, we are collectively moving in our world from the shadows and into the light. It is time to choose to get involved in bringing light back into our world. To bring light into our lives we must actively seek the light, the goodness, and the truth that does exist. This task is made more difficult with all the distortion and illusion fed to us daily.
To distort as defined is to twist awry or to twist out of shape; to give false or misrepresentation. An illusion as defined is something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality. Unfortunately, distortion and illusion are often created by trusted entities. Two examples I mentioned before were the government and the catholic church which have both the light of truth and the shadows of distortion. There are many different forms of distortion and illusion that we each encounter in our lives. The important key to remember is that distortion and illusion are used to keep us from remembering who we really are in this world. We are human beings created in and of God source such that we possess the power within us to co-create our reality, our world.
Okay, so I know for some that is a big pill to swallow. For now, just hold on to the pill and don’t worry about swallowing it. Just know that it exists and is yours for the taking.
We can’t feel our God-ness inside of distortion and illusion. It keeps us trapped like a bird in a cage with a veil over the cage unable to see past our cage. The first step to lift the veil to get outside of the distortion and illusion is to turn off the noise. Turn off the news. Turn off the television. Turn off the social media. Turn off other people’s opinions. Turn off your own inner critic, your ego. Turn off or say no to all these distractions and just live for a few days free from the noise of the outside. Notice how you feel after a week free of outside noise, opinions, and distractions. Do you feel lighter?
The next step is to say no to those tasks you do that bring you worry or stress. For the next week, in addition to no news or social media, also say no to family drama, money worries, and self-criticizing. Don’t worry they will still be there but for a week ignore them and focus on peace. Do something you personally enjoy giving yourself some self-love then feel the peace and joy it creates within you. Do you feel lighter?
This feeling of being light, of not being weighed down, is how we are designed to feel to feel the God-ness within us. We are each meant to take some time to be alone, to go within our hearts and minds. Unfortunately, for most of us we are so busy running on the rat wheel of life that we are drained with no time or energy left to question the outside world and go within ourselves. Until we put ourselves first to take time to go within to question life, the distortion and illusion will continue to keep us distracted from reaching our full potential.
Notice when you took the two weeks off from the news and social media – did the world end? Did anything life-changing happen in the news or media that truly affects you or that you could truly affect? The answer is most always no. So instead of worry about something that I can’t do anything about, I chose to live peacefully by turning it off. By not being distracted I can focus on achieving something else that I am interested in that I can affect by giving it my attention, my energy.
While writing this post, I am reminded of the House of Cards Netflix series where it shows politicians creating havoc to promote fear on purpose to keep the truth twisted and misrepresented (distortion) which kept the citizens believing a false narrative (illusion) which is what the politicians needed to further their agendas. It is amazing how often the truth is played out in a television show or movie before our eyes, yet we don’t even realize it.
So, remember that we will be manipulated and bogged down by distortion and illusion in news, media, and drama until we become mindful to turn it off. It is time to stand up against the darkness that slowly spreads through our silence, our inaction. Just say no to the outside distorted distractions and act to turn it off. Live in your own reality – not TV reality. Stay in the light by feeling lighter yourself!
Out of the Shadows and Into the Light
There is a lot going on in our world and the news right now that is causing concern, questions, and unrest. Believe it or not, this is a good thing, this is progression in our evolution. We are collectively moving in our world from the shadows and into the light. Some of the shadows unveiled recently include our government, the catholic church, Hollywood, and competitive sports.
In our US government, our elected officials who believe themselves to be civil servants have served themselves to more power, more money, more deception. As the politicians gained wealth, the middle class eroded in our country as they paid the price for the now corrupt system. The establishment is up in arms over the election of a complete outsider that is not interested in playing along with their game. Our civil servants elected to work in our best interests, work against us. They try to divide us. Continued civil unrest is good business for civil servants. It is job security for them. Civil unrest keeps us confused, off-balance, so that our attention is diverted while they vote themselves another layer of protection from those they were elected to serve. Scandal abounds in our government. Luckily for them, they have the power to control our communication tools and can steer the narrative to what they want us to believe. They in effect can pull the curtain on us to show us only what they want us to see.
There have been reports of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church worldwide in both the 20th and 21st centuries. The Catholic Church has had many scandals born from power and greed. The Catholic Church is based on a hierarchical system like the feudal system. Money collected at the parish or peasant level is taxed and collected all the way up to the Vatican. The Vatican sits on more wealth than most countries. The Vatican owns more real estate than anyone in the world. With this wealth the Church could eradicate world hunger but chooses to hold on to its treasurers and charge its own to view them. The male dominated church has created a men’s club like no other. They anoint their hands telling their faithful they have been divinely called. A man is a man, he is human, he is not infallible. The problem is the Catholic Church has put themselves into a predicament. The Church cannot confess all their sins and tell the truth without unraveling all the secrets. The Church has held heaven and hell over their faithful to an almost mind control state. If the faithful wake up to realize this the fate of the Church is in peril. The Church prefers silence on its own sins.
Hollywood was rocked by the news which came to light in the past couple of years by famous celebrities such as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Matt Lauer just to name a few. This trend of out of the shadows and into the light continues as the CBS CEO, Les Moonves, is out due to his own sexual abuse scandal. All that sparkles and glitters is not a fairy tale.
For over 30 years, Larry Nassar, was allowed to abuse youth in the USA Gymnastics program. Young athletes dream of competing in the Olympics were shiny and bright but come to find out had a dark side to be endured. The sexual abuse scandal in USA gymnastics is one of the biggest in sports history but certainly not the first or last. The speech given by Sarah Klein, Tiffany Thomas Lopez, and Aly Raisman is so profound that each person should watch and listen to their wise words:
2018 Espy Awards Clip
“Predators thrive in silence.” Think about that statement. When we don’t speak up against those who harm us or others, we are giving them the space and permission to continue. Our action or inaction does indeed have a ripple effect throughout our communities and our world, even through generations. It is time to stand up, to speak up, to act. It is time to choose to get involved in bringing light back into our world. It is time to stand up against the darkness that slowly spreads through our silence, our inaction.
The curtains are being drawn back on the many areas of darkness in our world. This is not a time to be fearful, for it was fear that kept many silent. This is a time to rejoice. This is a time to pull together to stand united in the light of truth and goodness. It is a time for us to be conscious in choosing how best to go forward in life. We cannot let anger and hatred fill our hearts. We must stand strong in the light with courage to accept the truth determined in our strength to remain anchored in love for all humanity. We are one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.
All of us includes the born and unborn, male and female, all races, all religions, all of humanity. We are in it together. We are all one. There is no need to fight one another. If we are going to fight, then let’s fight the good fight. Let’s fight the darkness and shine our light to live in the truth of who we are…
