How does one say goodbye to Mother Africa, to the great, glorious edifice we call “Table Mountain,” to the crashing South Atlantic, to the place that would not let me pass into my greater future without paying the proverbial troll? Oh, the dreadful, painful lessons that Mama Africa says, in her way, are, “For you own good.”
In the countdown to my return to America after seven and a half long years here in the Jurassic beauty of this land, juxtaposed with the totally unexpected disappointment of its social structure (which, to be fair, I was well warned about but didn’t grasp until, in my still relative naiveté, I was singed by the sting of its scorpion tail – which ultimately brought me to a sort of maturity I hadn’t even realized I was lacking (but I was – so thanks, Mama Africa — mother did know best!). It was all a blessing in the end and only a place like this can pull you in and reshape you. I am endlessly grateful for the experience, even though I would never have invited it or agreed to it consciously (are you mad?!).
There are too many goodbyes to acknowledge one by one. But there are a special handful of precious souls that made the journey bearable, sane and even joyous. You know who you are.
Sometimes we have to go so far away from home to appreciate home. And boy do I now appreciate home (as well as how & why we must venture far away from home to have the opportunity to become our next level self!
My Chatham Hall friends will well recall the traditional song sung at ‘Senior Night in The Well’ — the “I’m coming back when,” song!” Well, I guess all those things have happened, cuz I’m coming back. And to quote Jon Bon Jovi, “Who says you can’t go home? There’s only one place they call you one of their own…”
But we have to go out into this big, wild world – stretch out and put our big toe in, feel into all the things that call our soul to experience LIFE!! And I did that. It wasn’t misguided. It was right on target, even if it strangled and even very nearly mangled me. But, I’ll tell you this one thing (otherwise your outcome might not be so good): be pure, keep your integrity and watch for dragons! On the old maps they used to write, in uncharted areas, “Here be dragons.”
Look, I’m an adventurous old soul and I will always take the road less traveled. But, my advice is to be ready for dragons because dragons there will be! And you’ll need to make sure that your inner fire is bigger and badder than any other fire you might be confronted with. The ONLY way to do that is to cloak yourself, saturate yourself in integrity, purify your life, raise your consciousness above the world’s and keep going when the journey is tough. Like Winston Churchill said, “When you’re going through hell, keep going.” That adage, among others, got me through.
And then, remember this: you will heal. You will recover your energy if you stay focused on virtuous things, if you keep “thine eye single to the light.” Stay virtuous. Stay pure. Harbor zero dysfunctional anger. Never look back. Do this in your worst situations and you will come out intact. Don’t ‘watch the clock’, per se. Just stay the course for as long as it takes and you’ll find yourself healed and free.
Thank you to all the beautiful souls I have encountered on this journey! You have touched me deeply and I wish you the greatest happiness.
It’s time now for me to go home. What is home? Home is OHM – so it’s always in the heart and soul of each of us, geography is not the measurement of it really. But, when we can couple our heart space with land and friends that bring us a sense of familiarity and support, there’s certainly nothing wrong with bolstering our lives with that if we’ve got it. And, fortunately I have.
We cannot end and begin simultaneously. We must end and then begin. So, a chapter is closed, is blessed, is over and in less than two weeks I will cross an ocean and leave Mother Africa and take all her great, valuable, cherished lessons and reconfiguring with me back OHM to a country with plenty of problems of its own…but all that notwithstanding it is where I belong.
Hey Beautiful Human Family!
We are all eligible for individual ascension and a lot of us are feeling it. How are we feeling it? If we are in flow with life and aware of what growth looks like, we are tingling and quickening more every day. We are softening where we were previously rigid and becoming empowered where we were fragile. We are getting ‘downloads’ of wisdom and intuitive hits are coming in with unmistakable clarity. Perhaps most importantly, we are seeing the value in our bitterest challenges and working with them like a helpful tool for our restructuring to correct our alignment so we can rise up in frequency to be a vibrational match to our incorruptible Oversoul.
Many are resisting the changes we need to make – that our higher mind/Oversoul has put into place in order for us to learn to detach from lower vibration frequencies.
You don’t want to miss this opportunity to be transfigured before your very eyes. I’m not criticizing you when I share the following (I’m just offering this to help you get off the hamster wheel and out of the cage, off the metaphorical ‘streets’ of the dark-mother-teacher/matrix (more in that in another installment).
So here’s what I want to bring to your attention:
Misguided conflict is one of the biggest traps that can impede your ascension because these keep you in low/chaotic frequencies. You can either keep getting suckered into these conflicts (which have no noble end but just rev your ‘negativity engine’) or you can start spotting these traps as you might learn to spot speed traps so you don’t get caught by them and get huge fines).
If you want to capitalize on this remarkable, once in maybe many lifetimes opportunity – a soul event that we’ve possibly been waiting on for aeons – you’ve got to clean up your frequency and stop spinning with reactions to things you’ve put on your radar to fight against.
I stopped following and listening to virtually all media having to do with cxxxx and all the politics around it. And guess what… I haven’t missed anything important. I don’t engage with any conflict around it (or any vain conflict period anymore). I’m busy ascending and as I do so I have a higher perspective on foolish mental and emotional engagements.
Misguided conflict is one of the biggest traps that can impede your ascension because these keep you in low/chaotic frequencies.
You can do this too – it’s easy once you figure it out. I will be illuminating this in my next offering but for now, I just want to get you into awareness with this so you can prevent missing out on riding the higher frequencies up to which your Oversoul is pulling you! Of course “up” can only be equal to our depths. Hence embracing and comprehending the meaning of our struggles enables us to ascend (like a tree that ascends in equal measure to the securing of its roots in the ground).
So when I see people quarreling here about cvd (and all its various medical and political tentacles), people who fancy themselves to be politically superior and more consciously aware, they are missing the point, purpose and magic of this part of the world-game and are getting trapped (and will have to pay big ‘soul-fines’ as a result) rather than benefiting from flying above the radar and seeing the opportunity within the game.
Arguing about cvd will hamper your ascension. By all means, stand strong in your sovereignty and don’t compromise your clear truth. Be in your power with whatever you have come to with your keen analysis of the facts. But don’t then miss the point of being in your strength by quarreling and ultimately lose the real opportunity here, which is to transcend the drama playing out in the game. We have to learn to see behind appearances. Everything we do will either contribute to our ascension by aligning us with the frequency of our Oversoul or cause our frequency to ‘miss the mark’ and stay in a scrambled, lower soul-experience.
Take your time and think things through based on this and you’ll get better at deciphering what is the best/right use of your energy. Don’t miss your chance to return to your home frequency simply because something triggers you or because you mistakenly think you need to tell everyone what you know and why you’re right.
There are ways to share highly valuable perspectives that are in alignment with the Oversoul. There is no conflict in these assertions. They are simply clear, empowered assertions. A good example of this is the way David Martin conducts his lectures and shares knowledge. There is no quarreling or anger or pettiness. He makes elegant, intelligent connections and lifts up the minds and hearts of those he reaches.
David is just one example that comes to mind.
Take your time and think things through based on this and you’ll get better at deciphering what is the best/right use of your energy.
Sometimes the need to react and quarrel in this cvd ‘fight club’ is due to a shadow aspect that wants to be seen/heard. We have to seek out our motives for everything we do – when we do that we find our shadows and can integrate them.
This is such a rich playing field for growth if we understand it and appreciate the opportunity of this time, rather than remain blinded by the drama.
Hopefully, this has illuminated things a bit and you can tidy up your alignment and skirt the traps (and eventually transcend it all!).
Pure love from my heart to yours!
If you are struggling right now, remember it’s a testing. You want a quick tutorial for the test? Here you go: don’t do what’s merely expedient; do what’s right. Don’t do what’s easy; do what protects and honors your Soul (and the Source from which your Soul expresses).
Don’t do what the majority does because the majority chooses from fear, programming & conditioning. Don’t continue to make excuses or allowances for people’s patterns of abuse. Don’t be docile when you’re dealing with dangerous, hurtful, harmful people. You will continue to be drained and left to rebuild again & again.
Do what is right, even if it is the harder choice, even if it means having to galvanize courage you don’t access regularly. Do what ennobles your Soul; your Soul is the only true thing of value despite illusions otherwise.
Keep your boundaries solid. You know what is unworthy of entry in your life – often this means cutting ties with those closest to you if they cannot behave and be kind. That is not your fault so stop carrying the shame and responsibility for them. Be bold and unapologetic with what keeps your body, mind & heart intact.
It’s Always a Choice
You’re given choices every second: it comes down to the choice that depletes/drains you and the choice that empowers/energizes you. Anyone who would wish you to lower your boundaries or your standards so they can get in and destroy you (per their historic patterns) needs to be cut out – period.
Your Time to be Fierce is NOW
Time to be tough if you’ve been too allowing and constantly disrespected. Time to be fierce and in your ferocity enjoy all the happiness you deserve. This goes for anything & everything!
In loving service,
