I am bliss
I am bliss
Bliss I am
--from Vedic Scripture
Our true nature is bliss.
we awaken to our true nature, we are astounded, as if rising from
sleep, to realize we are one with God, residing in the heart of God, at
one with All Life, in true bliss and ecstasy, over the beauty and
wonder of it all. It is truly an astonishing experience, one many have
not written about. Perhaps, because few truly experience it.
it is what we all are searching for. Our true nature. And, in
reality, it is something we all are experiencing, all the time, in one
plane, or one aspect, of our consciousness. It is one of the many
planes of our consciousness which co-exist at all times. We are
multi-dimensional in nature. And, we are experiencing realities in
these multiple dimensions simultaneously. Most of us do not focus on
our higher, more elevated states of being. Instead, we tend to focus
on our lower aspects of awareness -- on our needs relating to survival
in the physical, dense dimension, for instance. Or, upon our striving
for sensual, sexual and emotional security, satisfaction, or
integrity. Or, upon our achievements through our personal will and
power versus that of those around us. Indeed, we have been taught this
is all there is. This physical dense reality. And, as it turns out,
where we focus our attention -- that is the plane of existence we
realize, or experience. If we do not realize our true nature, it is
only because we are focusing our attention elsewhere, or, simply, do
not believe it, which does not allow us to experience it. Buddhist
teachings tell us, also, that our true nature is bliss. And, if we do
not realize it, we simply are suffering from the illusion of separation
from the All. It is part of the understanding of wisdom cultures
Focusing on our true nature.
we are ready to focus on bliss, on the elevated states of our true
nature and being -- beyond the wounded and limited aspects of the self,
or that which strives for fulfillment in these lower dimensions we have
been taught are what life is all about -- when we are ready to focus on
the elevated nature of our being, that elevated aspect of us is there,
waiting to embrace us. It, then, guides, directs, and nurtures us in
harmony with Life. If, instead, we choose to focus on the unloved part
of ourselves, that is what we realize. And, we soon may even believe
that is all we are. Unloved. Wounded. We, then, cherish this aspect
of our self, as if it is most real, the most important, even that most
infinite aspect of who we are, when, in fact, it is not. Yet, as we
focus on this, our motivation revolves around this lack, this wounding,
this need for finding love, while our belief system builds upon the
reality that we are not loved. Through the magnetic power of our
creative potential, we draw to us the experiences that reinforce our
level of awareness and the belief codes we may now hold, that we are
not loved. Or, many of us have been well trained to believe that we do
not have enough, or, are not good enough, and must struggle to make
ends meet, or deserve value in our lives. (We have been entrained to
believe this, in actuality, through attuning to the belief systems and
states of consciousness of others in our lives since inception, at
individual, and societal levels.) Through focusing our awareness on
this level of reality, of not having enough, or not being good enough,
we, again, reinforce our awareness and beliefs, by subconsciously
co-creating those experiences that manifest this as a reality.
We have the power.
have the power to focus our awareness and create any level of reality
we choose. We have incredible powers of consciousness and choice. We
simply have been taught not to believe this, and, to exercise these
powers in less than constructive ways. Once we realize this, our true
nature, and, that we have these powers, and once we realize we are more
than this limited belief of our self, and begin to put our powers of
awareness and belief to more constructive use, we realize our powers of
creation are limitless. In our limitless world, an infinite world,
with infinite realities, we can create whatever we choose. And, one
reality is, exactly that: we can create whatever we choose!
we get this, that we are limitless in our powers of creation, and in
the nature of our own consciousness, we can more fully invest in our
limitless aspects, and reach into those states of being that are
infinite, bliss-filled, and at one with All Life. The more we focus on
these aspects of our being, the more they become our reality. It is
not that any of these other aspects of our experience are not ‘real.’
It is more about coming into the realization of the nature of creation,
and the understanding that we have unlimited potentials of creation of
our reality. Once we realize that we have the ability to create the
reality we truly wish, based on the fundamental nature of who we are,
in Harmony with All Life, we joyfully choose this. And, it arises
more, and more easily. There is a fundamental Harmony of All Life.
Once we find this Rhythm and Harmony, we feel the collaboration, the
support, and a UNION with All Life, which is unparalleled in the lesser
realities. Most of us have been taught to focus upon and invest our
beliefs in these, with pitfalls, struggles, and the appearance of
obstacles. These ‘lesser beliefs’ have been passed down for
generations, in many instances, divorcing us culturally of the greater
beliefs of a greater reality in which we are a part, and collaborate in
its creation. These ‘lesser beliefs’ have even cascaded down into our
cellular tissue, in ‘belief codes,’ or ‘encodings.’ The good news is,
they can easily be re-programmed. We can change our beliefs at any
time, by simply shifting and fixing our attunement on the higher
frequencies of our own consciousness. It is about frequency,
consciousness, empowerment, and belief. Beliefs are magical and
powerful tools of consciousness. What do you believe!?
It is not that they are not true, the ‘lesser realities.’
IT IS THAT WE HAVE CHOICE!
Are you ready to use your powers of choice!?
The Grandmothers Wisdom.
are numerous methods for understanding and experiencing these higher
states of our being. One of the most profound, practical, and easily
manifest practices I have experienced in some time, is utilization of
The Three Hearts practice. The Grandmother Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo, a
27th Generation Cherokee Wisdom Keeper whose wisdom this is largely
based upon, and whose stories I have shared in recent newsletters
regarding this work, has spoken to me on several occasions about the
benefit and need to place our awareness simultaneously in our own
heart, in the heart center, in alignment with the heart of the Earth,
in alignment with the heart of the galaxy. By doing so, she says, we
can come into harmony with all life.
listened to Grandmother in fascination each time we spoke. But, all of
her words were so fascinating, and full of wisdom, I did not fully
focus upon this jewel she shared on each occasion. Then, in the spring
of 2010, after one such profound meeting with her, I was guided to
begin offering this as a practice in our workshops worldwide.
Synchronistically, at that very time, I was, also, informed of new
wisdom arising from the Maya High Council, that directly corroborated
this wisdom of The Three Hearts as a powerful and most beneficial way
to enter into rhythm and “Harmony with All Life,” and, specifically
important to “these times.”
The principals of this have been explained more fully in recent newsletters we will link at the bottom of this article.
Gateways, and Contractual obligations
happened has been astounding. After just a few public offerings of
this practice, an amazing gateway to other realms of experience
opened. It is not that group practice has not done similar things
before. Those who know our work understand this. Our advanced groups,
who have an amazing synergy, especially know this. The dynamics of
group practice, when two or more of us come into like mind, into like
intent, like focus, is incredible. It provides an impetus and catalyst
few of us can create alone. Most of us have experienced it. It is the
magic of the greater One. The link between us all. “When two or more
of you gather in my name…..” By focusing the group intent on this
particular practice, we have entered into another dimensional reality.
digress for just a moment, in my own personal path and evolution,
utilization of the practice brought me into direct alignment with one
of my own “contractual arrangements” with the universe, which was to
“embody the Star Nations.” This undertaking would take an article unto
itself to explain, so I will forego it here. But leave it to say,
while at an Elders Gathering with Grandmother Dhyani, as she guided us
through a very simple sound ceremony, I entered, through a journey
state, another realm of consciousness. There, the Elders of the “Star
Nations” came forward and gave me this assignment, or reminded me of
it, that I am to better “embody the nations.”
the normal Western mind, this may seem odd, off beat, outlandish, even
out of touch with reality. But, to the indigenous peoples of our
continent, the Star Beings, those of the Star Nations are our Elders,
our Ancestors. They are our relations from where we have come.
is true for many of the ancient and indigenous peoples of the world.
This, too, could take another article to explain, but, fundamentally,
it is relating to the nature of who we are, and where we are from. It
is a critical inquiry into the nature and evolution of human
consciousness: who am I, where am I, where am I from, why am I here?
engaging in The Three Hearts Practice, I have better been able to
engage in this aspect of my own work than through any other method, to
Embody the Nations. Because, as I have been guided to offer the
practice, we are literally asked to expand our awareness out to embrace
the stars and space of this galaxy. It, also, brings us into
incredible states of awareness of the subtle realms. And, there they
Matrix of Life
has allowed me to enter a new evolutionary spiral of connectivity to
the Star Elders and other Holy Beings I work with in the subtle
realms. Through this ever deepening relationship, we are collaborating
to bring forward crystalline sound codes, which embody a universal
language, a universal meaning, a reminder of who we are, and why we
have come here. It is something we all are, we all have, we all know.
Yet, it is like a reminder, it is time. Time to awaken. Time to
witness and realize our true nature. Open to the Gateway of collective
potential and realization, which so many call 2012. It is time.
matrices accentuate explicit states of consciousness and aspects of our
being encoded at fundamental levels, such as within our DNA spirals.
By receiving the encodings, it awakens fundamental matrices of our own
being in harmony with Creation. By languaging the encodings in Sacred
Sound, it allows everyone present to enter, or receive, those states of
Knowing. One doesn’t have to ‘know’ or ‘do’ anything. Just by being
present, in a receptive state, the encodings are received. This
activates subtle states of being which have been dormant during this
period of human ‘slumber,’ which we have been in for some time. In
sound terminology, it is through the nature of entrainment, entering
resonance with those already in harmonic resonance. It is a remarkable
experience for most present. It opens us to our innate Self.
Crown of Creation
so, unfolds the nature of evolution and harmony. At a personal level,
by entering more deeply into harmony with all life, through the
practice, it has brought me into harmony with my own life purpose.
Working with astute practitioners worldwide, in our normal workshops
and advanced programs, and paying attention to a critical piece of the
Grandmother’s wisdom which I cannot share here, but do so with those
whom choose to invest in their own evolution and the evolution of the
New Earth collaboratively in these group practices, what has happened,
is, we have opened a gateway to what I will term “the Heart of
Creation.” This is in alignment with the wisdom coming from other
Elders, as well as wisdom schools of the world, regarding this time,
and the nature of Creation. By opening this gate, we have gained
access to astute levels of consciousness I will now call the “Crown of Creation.”
principals contained herein are manifold, and can be spoken of in many
ways. This, too, could, and perhaps shall be, the source point for
future articles. Modern science is part of the story. Indeed, the
Maya speak of the need to blend ancient and modern ways of knowing. It
is like the union of the cognitive and intuitive minds. They
understand this. Many living in the modern world do not. Just this
week, NASA reported an extraordinary phenomenon relating explicitly to
the indigenous wisdom of the Heart of the Galaxy. A phenomenal
discovery to science. But science does not understand it. They are
just reporting observations. Yet, it is part of ancient wisdom. Many
aspects of science, such as new revelations relating to the sun’s
photon field, the Earth’s gravitational field, the galaxy’s Gamma
radiation, all are part of ancient knowing in relation to the Three Hearts wisdom.
science and much more of all of the above work will be shared in far
greater depth with those who participate in the practices. The
practices are outlined in our Class Lists, with much general information in our The Three Hearts Pages. The Three Hearts will be the foundation practices for this wisdom. The Crown of Creation
practices will carry this work into this next level as it evolves and
unfolds. While anyone can attend and engage in each practice, if you
have not engaged in this work with us before, it may be most beneficial
to begin with the Three Hearts, to gain basic
understanding and benefit from the work. But we will be guided as need
be in each practice, with those who attend.
practices touch deeply into, and open us to, Universal Wisdom. How
they apply to personal evolution, has to do with attaining to one’s own
nature, and the gifts one receives from the heart of creation, as one
opens to one’s own nature, to one’s own spiritual dignity and destiny,
one’s own Divine Essence and Authority. The Crown of Creation
practices more deeply activate our innate nature. We, literally,
ignite the power of one’s true and Authentic Being through this work.
And, not unlike the “Ba” activations of Egyptian mysticism, we come
into complete alignment with our true Authority, Knowing, and Powers of
Creation. This is not for the light of heart. This is for those ready
to step into their own true power, their own dignity in alignment with
All Creation. The power to heal and be healed. To Manifest. To See.
To Know. To Be. It requires the utmost integrity. It is not for the
curious, but, for those ready to manifest and serve.
are stepping up, into our integral right and responsibility to
collaborate with the Heart of Creation, the Crown of Jubilation, with
the Spiritual Authority and empowerment to create a world bathed in
goodness and essence, nourishment and support, joy and beauty, in
harmony with Creation, in Harmony with all life. These practices will
assist and deeply support your own personal spiritual process, as each
of us must, in our own way, find the pathway to and illuminate our own
of Divine Purity, Essence, Beauty, Joy, and Well-Being,
in Harmony with Nature,
in Harmony with Creation,
in Harmony with All Life.
Once we each get to this, we shall have that world we strive for, we imagine in some future reality.
will be in our Power, which is our authentic Knowing, connected to All
Life, in bliss to be in such beauty and joy, and in gratitude and
reverence to be a part of the precious Cycle of Life, ecstatic that we
are connected in this way, in service to the One, the Divine, of which
we are a part, while containing the Whole.
Do not imagine someone else is going to do it for us.
As the Hopi Elders say, “We are the Ones we have been waiting for.”
Are you ready? Are you in your power? Do you need help to find the pathway into your authentic self?
The Elders say this is one of the best ways to make safe and sacred passage through these times, (to place awareness in the Three Hearts,) to enter into the Rhythm of Giving and Taking in Harmony with All Life, the cycle of Life, the Sacred Wheel.
I find this to be so.
It is a way of great Beauty.
We are all talking about 2012 and the changes that shall occur. What are we doing NOW?
This is the time to take action. The Elders say it is the only time.
To Be. To Become.
To come to true illumination and understanding.
To move away from our wounded and unknowing self. To find the balance of the true and authentic Self.
We each must find ways to touch into the Joys and Beauty of our own greater life! Claim them.
Share them with others.
To create the world we envision, together, for the future.
To assist and escort the unknowing through these times of tribulation and difficult passage.
You will be blessed.
Begin to Create that which you envision for the future.
Many blessings in your journey!!
I look forward to sharing with you upon the Sacred Wheel of Life.
