Healing Collective Trauma, Stopping the Static and Re-aligning with the Divine Plan ~

Hello friends. Well as you can imagine I’ve been quite busy since last week as a cosmic correspondent. Last weekend was a tough place to be in social media, but it did give me a good idea on what was going on in the collective consciousness. Whoa. As my one wise friend likes to say, “the cheese was thick on the ground.”  

I admit I was heavily impacted, especially that on the week of the glorious 11:11 Stargate such horrendous things would happen in the world. I know many of you were also. (NOTE: There is more commentary by the Keepers and myself on these incidents at my previous blog post, “Thoughts on Recent Events in Paris.”)

Having some time to contemplate and confer with Guidance after I cleared my energies, I was able to get some further clarity. As you know I’ve been following and tracking the astro-cosmic influences and have commented often on the intensity and “magnification” aspects of the “8” Universal Year energies. Like most things that exist in a 3-5D scenario, they can be interpreted on several levels. 

 Though this meme from “Zoolander” is certainly funny and apt for the moment, shaming others is definitely not. It’s also a subtle, but real form of bullying. A popular sentiment that’s been going around heavily in social media is to shame or give people static for not being concerned about what other think they should be. As in the examples of Paris vs. Lebanon, and so forth. This is a form of divisive thinking that helps no one, except perhaps the negative aspects of ego/ordinary mind. I used the word “static” for a reason, as in times of pain, trauma and chaos the collective noise gets very high and the resultant vibration unsteady. I have also noticed that it’s a convenient way to project (i.e. “offload”) the anger, pain and helplessness that many people feel in times of violence and crisis as opposed to taking responsibility and not adding to the collective garbage heap.

“It’s like saying, “these people don’t deserve our deep sympathy because they’re much better off than these other people in the world.” That type of comparison is deadly to compassion. “Politically correct” shaming (and possibly resultant guilt) gone overboard won’t help us relate better to each other. This, to me, is more reflective of our collective inability to sit with discomfort, while having no answers to this insane level of violence in the world. Outward projection is always divisive, and ultimately, serves no one.” – Alyce Walker

I couldn’t have said it any better myself than this wonderful quote by Alyce Walker. “Sitting” with our pain is not easy, especially in a culture that supports taking a pill, buying more stuff and/or generally numbing out rather than to face reality. Being with pain also bringing a vulnerability and rawness that is also not especially condoned or supported in our culture, where excessive “Yang” attitudes are still prevalent, although that IS changing. One of the gifts in situations like this is actually a return to the Healing Angels, Taras and Great Mother, to lay our fear and pain at their feet and allow their loving compassion to penetrate our hearts and softened places. There is a resistance to this in certain circles, as the understanding that our “soft spots” actually contain great power is not yet a very popular view. Psychic and emotional “Armoring” created from pain and resistance can be penetrated, while the open truth of feelings simply ARE. This is not to imply however, (especially for Empaths and Sensitives) that we do not take precautions with our own personal/psychic energy, which is another matter.

So what CAN we do? Since ultimately we are all ONE, what are we bringing to the table of humanity? Our pain, fear and projection or our love, peace and essence? This is something that we indeed do have some control over. As we become aware of the unfolding of more frightening and violent world events, I am reminded of the “Two Worlds” scenario mentioned by noteworthy Indigo/New Earth Researcher and author Dolores Cannon, and also several others. The division between vibration and “worlds” is becoming more evident and pronounced. It is essential that we guard our energies and thoughts well and that we choose wisely in terms of media, conversations and even companions. 

**I especially invite all energy workers, Reiki and IET practitioners to include the Collective in your work. Archangels Michael and Raphael are especially helpful in clearing fear and trauma to restore health and balance.

Forces of Light will overcome the forces of darkness. Complete spiritual enlightenment on Earth will occur. – Edgar Cayce

From the centre which we call the race of men, Let the Plan of Love and Light work out. And may it seal the door where evil dwells. Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth. – excerpt from “The Great Invocation,” received by Alice Bailey in 1945 (Lucis Trust)

In my work with the Akashic Wisdom Keepers over the last seven years, they have often referred to this as well.

Now is the moment. The Indigos, Crystals, Lighworkers, Starseeds who are with you now number in the millions. Please do not be fooled or afraid – the restoration of Gaia is underway, no matter what illusory stories are being played out. Those who have awakened to the knowledge and truth that they are Galactic Citizens have “seen behind the curtain” so to speak, and are guided by and attuned to the higher authority of Cosmic Love. Shanti – peace unto you all. – The Keepers, Cosmic Love, page 114

Stay strong yet truthful in your vulnerability, friends. It can be done. Your light is needed and appreciated. You have seen behind the curtain and know there is much more than meets the eye. Trust your inner Guidance. Sat-Chit-Ananda. You Are That.

Elements and Origins

I saw the Body’s Exhibit over the weekend and I have to say that I am absolutely astounded at what amazing miracles we are.  Just to see how every piece and part of our physical bodies works perfectly in harmony to allow us to see, hear and do all of the things that we do each day is amazing.  It is so easy to take that for granted.  Never the one to be satisfied with the superficial, I must go deeper than the physical body.  It is elemental in nature as I have written of before, made from all of the elements, perfectly.  But what is behind it, beneath it or above it?  What keeps it going?

Seeing the teeny tiny parts of the brain, I am sorry but I am not a believer that everything we are comes from just the biological hunk of fibers referred to as the brain that is merely a component part of the suit we wear.  What I have come to understand is that we are so much more.  An elemental is just that, an elemental – full of pieces and parts formed with automatic and selective processes that put the body in motion.  But what animates that form intelligently?  I call it Consciousness.  Others use different terms.  When I say Consciousness, think Energy.  I mean Consciousness with a very, very large C more in line with the absolute infinite or “All of Everything” as is quoted in the Kybalion.  Others may use the term Cosmic Consciousness, God, Goddess or Source.

There are some very unscientific theories that what animates the elemental human is a very tiny part of that infinite and vast Cosmic Consciousness.  You might call that tiny portion the spirit or the soul.  When that animating consciousness withdraws itself, the body ceases functioning and dies.  But that consciousness lives on.  Energy cannot die but can only transform.  As I walked around viewing the exhibits, I saw the forms of the elementals reduced to their most varied and basic parts and I realized the body is truly only a vehicle for our consciousness or Consciousness, I should say.

Theologians have innumerable and sometimes synchronistic positions on what we are and where we came from.  While I respect those positions and related theories, I think they fall short of the truth.  It’s something I feel deep within from that place I know I can trust more than anything.  There is a knowingness that arises within us all when we have learned to become very still and quiet.  This knowingness belongs to the chain of command, so-to-speak, that goes from the smallest part of our Consciousness straight to the Largest most Infinite part of our Consciousness.

We often take bits and pieces of premise for granted or truth without digging deeper for the evidence.  Take our very existence as a prime example.  We rest our theories on writings from antiquity but where is the proof?  There isn’t any proof.  If we intended to prove how we came to be, there are so many intangible ideas we must contend with.  Science contends with this every day and they must create a premise from which they can build their hypotheses and theories.  So, we started somewhere and just went with that and we still hold today that we were created by a white bearded man who created two individuals in His image, one male and one female, yin and yang.

In the creation myths that abound from various cultures all over the globe, there are very similar and also very different tales of our origins.  Our origins seem a bit obscure, to put it lightly.  Some think we are aliens.  Maybe we are.  Some think we evolved from apes or fish.  Maybe we did.  Some think we were created by the Great White Bearded God that lives in a magical kingdom called heaven.  Maybe we did.  Some believe that we individuated from the great Cosmic Consciousness to enter this dimension as a holographic elemental image for the purpose of having an experience that we take back to the Source of the Cosmic Consciousness when we’ve completed our experiencing.  Maybe we did.

Where does that leave any of us who are wondering about our origins?  How do you choose when belief is all you have and very little if any evidence at all? Some might say, “Now Jaie, you must have faith.”  “In what?,” I would respond.  I have faith in my Consciousness.  You see, I had the privilege of being Conscious outside of the body in this vast nothingness and everythingness that was so peaceful, so very quiet that for the first time in my life I could think and be without everything that comes with these elemental trappings.  But even that experience is only filtered through my perception so cannot be objective.

When I go with that inner knowing feeling, I feel that I am a tiny part of a much bigger Spirit that stays always and ever connected to Source and in my moments of greatest inspiration or intuition it is THAT voice that speaks to me subtly, encouragingly and lovingly to guide me through this situation or that.  When I consider such things, origins become a bit unimportant as I turn to other questions like “Why am I here at all?”  Wouldn’t that be a cool question to have answered?  Again, I can’t go with anything the outside world would project upon me because it wouldn’t resonate as truth with me, with that still small voice of the Spirit that comes through nudging me this way or that.  My dissatisfaction I find is nothing more than an attachment that I really need carry no longer.  My Spirit knows where it came from and the elemental me that will return to the dust from whence it came when my consciousness pulls out for the last time will query no more. 

In all my questing for answers to the unanswerable, rather than give in to the frustration or buying anyone else’s answers as a definitive truth, I will go with what I trust and that is me.  I trust me implicitly.  My soul and spirit are clean.  I trust what comes through and I’m reassured that I need question no further.  I need only live and love and enjoy my time in this type of experience until my consciousness moves onto something else and be content with that.  Can I do it?  Yes, I think so and it starts today. 

In a way, I will always be an explorer of consciousness and seeking understanding of all of the things that create our behaviors and desires.  There is a part of me that wishes to protect an Earth that needs no protecting (yet another attachment).  All is perfect as it is because from it we are learning to take greater care.  From the tragedies we learn to be more careful with each other and ourselves.  From the hard times we learn to truly find gratitude for the good times.  From the desolate and lonely times we learn to turn within for comfort, solace and love.  These things and realizations take lifetimes sometimes.  And, that is okay.  So, suffice it to say, I’ve come to accept life on its terms and to have faith in myself to master whatever task I am called to master. That is my Consciousness and within that, I have that much faith in myself and no fear of failure.  Failure is learning. Am I any closer to the truth?  Well, I can’t say that I am for anyone else but I can say so for me.

Consciousness and Life in General

This article acknowledges the challenges in our understanding of consciousness but pushes the boundary further in reaching for we do not yet understand.  In so doing, the concepts outline here intend to impart some understanding of the challenges we face as conscious humans while still attempting to inspire further research, study and acceptance of ourselves as human beings that are an integral part of humanity.

Key Words:  Consciousness, Exploration, Frontiers, Humanity, Life

In certain circles we evaluate consciousness and its origins vis a vis the hard and easy problems.  In Susan Blackmore’s book, Consciousness an Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2004.  NY), she outlines the hard problem as:

The hard problem is to explain how physical processes in the brain give rise to the subjective experience.  The term was coined in 1994 by David Chalmers, who distinguished it from the “easy problems” of consciousness.  These include the ability to discriminate, categorize and react to stimuli; the integration of information by cognitive systems; the reportability of mental states; the focus of attention; deliberate control of behavior; and the difference between wakefulness and sleep.  By contrast the hard problem concerns experience itself, that is, subjectivity or “what it is like to be…”(19)

The arguments made by many a learned scholar make sense within their frameworks but I still cannot help but feel this nagging feeling within that we are all overlooking something important; perhaps something simple.  I cannot tell you precisely what that is until I can tease apart this nagging urge a bit more.

What we do know about consciousness is that in some respects, it is a bit of a mystery and potentially relegated at least in part to the land of metaphysics.  We cannot definitively pin point the origins of consciousness with certainty.  Consciousness is not limited to the brain but perhaps extends into the Mind and even beyond which encompasses the brain and yet includes a much broader concept such as the whole of the Universe.  Perhaps like the big bang or little blink, it just began and there it was in existence supported by all the dark matter and light of the universe.  I cannot tell you which.

What I can tell you is that I am conscious within the limited framework of a physical body that is awake and aware and that I am also part of a larger existence of consciousness of which we are all a part.  Maybe consciousness is no problem at all and our digging deeper into a piece of reality just to label it is a mistake.  We take bits and pieces of existence all the time.  We sort of decide to take this chunk of reality as limited as it may be, study it, test it, experiment with it and decide, “This is it, this is X.”  What if we do not have the capacity to take a big enough chunk of our reality to accurately measure it at all?

In terms of life in general, our consciousness is defined very closely to its component psychological parts as Freud (1856-1939) determined, Consciousness, Latent Consciousness and the Sub-conscious.  Everything we do and experience becomes some part of our consciousness in life.  So be it. It is what it is.  This is all well in good if you are content to get up every day and avoid philosophy.  Sadly or fortunately, as a philosopher, I don’t have that blessing.  I’ve an inquiring Mind which seeks to understand consciousness in it’s various states for my own personal reasons having experienced altered states of consciousness that have nothing to do with drugs!

I think the conclusion that I come to is that I can be satisfied with all of the studies and ideas on consciousness but I cannot be satisfied with stopping there.  We have so many great minds reading, researching and who are so very willing to continue the exploration into new frontiers on consciousness so that we might some day come up with something infinitely more useful for humanity concerning something very close to the home of every individual on the planet, our consciousness.  Being part of the much larger Consciousness, of which we are all part, is our right and privilege here in this frame and so we live our lives in various stages of consciousness that shifts, changes and expands much like the universe.  Be that as it may, I love life and I don’t think I could ever stop exploring our conscious existence in a very big way.  In a way, I hope you grasp that same pioneering spirit with whatever it is that calls to you within your own lives and fearless continue your inquiry until you are satisfied with the answers.

New Moon & Stargate Report for 11.11.15

Hello friends. We’ve got a special New Moon in Scorpio happening this year. Not only is is happening right in the middle of the potent 11:11 Stargate, but the Sabian Symbol for it is particularly beautiful and in synch. I will tell you more about that in a moment.
A traditional translation of the Scorpio New Moon is self-mastery and a return to the essence of personal power. It’s regenerative properties of the “new” are particularly enhanced as Pluto is the King of all that asks to be transmuted and upgraded (and also that which doesn’t necessarily ask, too.) Everyone will be feeling this to a certain extent, but those with personal planets in Scorpio will especially be visited by this exceptionally potent and magical energy.

With Mercury also in “spiritual detective” Scorpio, our ability to look behind the masks of things has been enhanced. Just like in the “Wizard of Oz,” the advice to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” may have a new meaning at the moment. The outer world’s ability to distract and divert have definitely been called to task. It is also customary this time of year for there to be a noted inner battle between the “bad witch” of ego/ordinary mind and the “good witch” of our Higher Self. For many, we have grown tired of that particular drama and struggle, and this time around we are noticing the difference. Well done, starshines. 😉 Just like Glinda told Dorothy, “you had the power all along, my dear.” As many of the great ones have shared with us, deep contrast often serves a great purpose. That is, until we no longer require it as a teaching tool. However, it is worthy of mentioning that Sun and Moon in Scorpio are never want for intensity and a possible abundance of shadow material in the collective. For those who are of a mind to do so, please take a few moments out of your own celebrations and/or personal work to hold loving space for all who may require support through this portal.

New Moon Message: Dear ones, the Scorpio energies have been compared to the great Phoenix. Take the dust and ash of your transformation and gently blow it away. It is no longer you. – The Keepers, 11/8/15

The energies of this Stargate are already with us, starting to especially gain in potency starting on 11/7. I’ve been hearing many reports of what we jokingly call the “ascension flu” at Cosmic Weather, as its symptoms often come and go strangely and feel to be strongly energetic. Do follow the usual recommended guidance with any potent period in the cosmic weather: proper nutrition, rest, stay hydrated and don’t forget your grounding. As in all potent energy periods, whatever material is coming up and out, it’s recommended to not resist it.

The Sabian Symbol for 20 Scorpio is: A woman drawing aside dark curtains that close the entrance to a sacred pathway.

This is another example of the beauty and perfection of the Universe as Scorpio represents: the hidden and the unveiled, the poison and the antidote, the illness and the medicine, death and resurrection. Especially in combination with the 11:11, the way has been opened.
The keywords for the 11:11 (2015) Stargate are: Joy. Resurrection. Truth. Return. Joy as the truth of your being. Resurrection as the end of a cycle and the beginning of new one. A return to essence, with more of the unnecessary dropped away. – The Keepers, 11.8.15
Thinking on the Cosmic Tune for this Moon/event, this great one floated in. The Golden Avatar is us, just awaiting our welcome and realization. And so it is.
I called you the keeper of my heart, ’cause I’ve felt that you’ve been there waiting from the start. – Crispian Mills

Golden Avatar – Kula Shaker
The 11:11 Stargate is one of the sacred pathways that we have been generously been given for our own healing, growth and awakening. For all that we have experienced and let go of in this potent and dynamic year, this New Moon and the 11:11 feels like a sacred gift. Let us remember to dedicate it to the benefit of all sentient beings.
Happy New Moon and 11:11 friends!

NOTE: I will be celebrating the release of my new book, “The Aquarian Healer” and also giving an online teaching and activation with the Akashic Wisdom Keepers on 11:11 at 4pm PDT/7pm PST. Please visit Angels of Hope Center for more information or to register. Thank you.

The New Moon in Scorpio is 11/11/15 at 9:47 am PST/12:57 EST

An Unsatisfied Body Deteriorates the Soul and So Its Experience

Satisfaction or contentment is deficient in our intelligent world, for entropy is at its prodigality accompanying the egoistic human mind. The lesser beings are content with what is provided, seem more beholden of being created, rather than the selfish unsatisfied human, whose desire to gain has no limit leaving the body unsatisfied to deteriorate thy own soul and its existence and of the others. The cause of entropy is human intelligence and the falsified superiority of human consciousness that leaves the body unsatisfied and the soul to writhe; for it creates a resistance in the flow of consciousness that makes the human loose its value of life and all that resides within. Egoism enhances superiority promotes an indestructible feeling; denies consciousness that flows within and across the system; a loss of revere to the cosmic bridge of consciousness that links the body, mind and soul to the universe. Satisfaction can be gotten when one clearly differentiates the subjectivity from the objectivity of consciousness; for the subjectivity of consciousness cannot be taken for granted over its trailing objectivity that ceaselessly deceives.

Key Words
Satisfaction, Soul, Consciousness, Content, Human, Egoism, Entropy

Lack of satisfaction leaves the soul and consciousness morbid
Satisfaction is the fulfillment of a need or a desire expressed as pleasure or contentment derived from gratification, while on the other hand it can become an expression of discontentment or displeasure against a need or desire. Lack of satisfaction leads to an unsatisfied body and alters the state of the mind which revolves around the thought of a specific need or desire; a reversible effect but can lead to irreversible changes if the greed grows beyond the scope of change. About 99.99% of individuals inclusive of me belong to this category while the other remainder who deny this state may be currently residing in a trance or coma. The human body is indecisive about its needs and drives the body to a state of unsatisfied mess; craving or longing that over-powers the conscious self and breaks the link between self and reality. This is an entropic price that humans need to pay for their big brains, falsified higher state of consciousness and self-acclaimed superiority of thy souls.
Lack of satisfaction arises due to one’s greed and envy of what the other possess; entropy being the cause of instituting the body to an egoistic and envious state; altering the unvarying flow of consciousness within the body; for it weakens the mind and so the soul loses its energy. The energy slackens and therefore imperils the soul into a state of displacement; revising the flow of nature, the flow of universal consciousness that flows within all living beings; that obeys the laws of energy conservation wherein the body draws in energy from the cosmos against the growing egoistic behaviour of itself. Intelligence grows with complexity and the price for it is paid through entropy; the seat lies in the brain which manages the behaviours and desires of the body. Realization of the existence of consciousness and conscious moments in the forms of emotions emoted by the body can overcome this entropy, for the mind and soul does seek the desire to overcome this change, but the body and the brain dictates the experience of one’s consciousness.
Weaker the soul, weaker is the flow of consciousness; the body in such a state takes over the mind and drives the body towards a state similar to the state of semi-consciousness; a zombie, who denies the existence of the subjectivity of consciousness and therefore depends on the objectivity fulfilled by the body. An entropic change in energy conservation leads to the breakdown of the actual energy vibrations that support the flow of consciousness; an exchange of energy between self and the universe. Vibrations of a weak or stressed soul can alter the soul of the other and others; like an epidemic through interaction, that scythes down a community. A weak soul will make thee other weak, drawing away the happiness and subjectivity of the conscious experiences of self and enforcing the likeliness of its own objectivity. Lack of satisfaction enhances this effect, for it will destroy the body completely; under the laws of energy conservation; the soul or consciousness would rather give rise to a being with a realization of itself than the body it currently resides in; entropy can be supported by the body within the limits of nature and therefore transforms when beyond control.
Entropic egoism of a body can survive for a short period until the body self realizes, but during this period the soul or consciousness will want to revive back to its conventional state; for the change is reversible when understood. In some cases the body stays stubborn and the egoism peaks, for such individuals, the soul or consciousness deteriorates, the subjectivity or expression of emotions and feelings belittles and the body maneuvres in a pure objective state; a cold and expressionless body with a degrading soul and consciousness. The brain controls the egoism, constraining emotions expressed by the body, but the soul or consciousness in such a body will try to maintain a balance between the objectivity and subjectivity of its consciousness; for the flow of energy may help support the functioning of the body but the experience of the existence of the body is reduced. The experience of consciousness is an important role in the life of a being which has been understood well by living beings other than man.  
Lack of satisfaction has a minimal impact to global or universal consciousness; for the cosmic energy and its connections for the utilization of energy are in a state that is much higher than usual. This imbalance of energy is reversible and can be understood and handled by nature; for we are just a speck of matter in this vast universe and cannot challenge the capability of the universe to correct itself. The limit to bear this intolerance remains wholly with the body and these unfavourable conditions created by egoism may be borne up to a limit of a ball of matter absorbing the energy from the cosmos, when this intolerance goes beyond the limit of matter, the matter itself perishes and the energy is reunited to the cosmos. Growth beyond the limits of requirement is a result of greed and a lack of satisfaction which destroys the actual purpose of life and its beauty. The soul desires to experience the beauty of all that has been created, which is evident in lesser beings for their limit or desires stay within the purviews of their soul and consciousness and the balance between the objective and subjective state of consciousness never change due to the non-existence of ego.
Higher the consciousness, higher is the entropy and so higher is the rate of change of the behaviour of the body; it instils an eagerness to be superior, which takes the body away from the actual sense of its existence; the eagerness of the soul. Realization of this greed can help the body overcome its egoistic approach to life and help the soul or consciousness grow within the whole arena of the energy or consciousness that prevails in this universe. Satisfaction in can be achieved when one can feel the flow of consciousness; can experience the outcome of consciousness; can understand the subjective state of consciousness and most importantly, understanding the nature of acknowledging the relevance of consciousness and its beauty.
