Energy Update – Beginning Of A New Year – Rebirth

Greetings and happy new/now year!

A year has ended, a year of tremendous growth and transformation, radical sudden changes with a lot of valuable lessons and great moments. Now, 2016 is here.

At present time there is a cycle of rebirth that will last as long as the person needs it to last. This is an individual gateway, but it’s inevitably interconnected to the collective consciousness, therefore becoming what I call a “theme.” This theme will build up in intensity until the spring equinox.

What you shone the light on, is now of the past, it’s old. It’s time to put the old, the past to rest. Whatever remnants, residual we still carry needs to be transformed from our fields. During the next moments we will be doing that and we will be accomodating in our newly aquired skin.

Over the past couple of days, I’ve had some overwhelming emotions of frustration, sadness and constantly overthinking last year. What I wanted to do and how life turned out, what I accomplished and what I didn’t, doubting my choices and decisions, then I just started feeling sorry for myself and I was like “Oh, there we go again!.” Silly thing to do, all this overthinking, but I don’t shy away from moments like these, as overthinking means the mind is clogged up and the energy just felt suffocating. Overthinking has its purpose, which I will explain and contrary to popular beliefs, it’s helpful in some ways. Its purpose diminishes when we create or feed the overthinking mind constantly. That’s a no no.

We tend to push these emotions and thoughts away, never really feeling or thinking them, but they are still there. I understand why we have those tendencies, we all want to be happy happy, joy joy, right? But it’s moments like these that are eventually giving us wings. They are to be honoured as part of our current human experience and evolution. We are evolving through them. Mostly, it’s not about “calming the mind,” “shutting down the chatter,” yada yada. It’s about why is it there in the first place? What’s interfering with our harmonious state of being?

Eventually, I sat with myself and felt, reflected and made peace with the past and with everything that happened and did not happen. Not the easiest task, I must say, as I was flooded with emotions, but the most soul rewarding nonetheless. I understood what I needed to integrate, as a wave of clarity swept over me. I also understood that all that frustration, sadness and anxiety just needed to be felt and released to make room for the “new” light. As juvenile as it seems, in the moment I couldn’t help feeling like I’m failing at something, like I’m doing something wrong or have done something wrong. It was clearly not the case, as all is as it’s supposed to be, but part of me felt like it, so it was magnified for me to face it and transform it.

My higher self assured me through visions that I’m fine, that everything that happened was always in alignment with my highest good and everything will be just fine. I know that 99,9% of the time, I integrated that inner heart knowing deeply as it allows me live fearlessly, but the rest of that time I’m like “What’s my life ? And what the hell is going on?” So, it’s always good to receive confirmations. This is the purpose of the chatter, of overthinking mind and overwhelming lower vibrational emotions – to guide us to the root of discomfort, of the deeper, most likely subtle, but very important old programs that need to be brought to light.
This release was followed by a high heart activation, which was strongly felt right on the New Year’s Eve. That was not easy on the chest, but necessary to upgrade and expand that specific heart vortex, strongly connected to the light body.

I’m quite sure many have had similar experiences during this period, so know it’s alright and nothing’s wrong, but the opposite.
The new you is ready to emerge. Let it. It might not always feel pleasant, but most of the time it comes with a sense of renewal, peace, freedom and childlike enthusiasm.

As this new year begins, let’s start it with a refined focus on what’s really important to you and for you. Energy flows where attention goes. Focus was and is still a trying facet for me, with so many distractions and too many things going on on many levels of our existence, but distractions never last long and, eventually, I always get back my focus, thankfully. I found that focus synergizes perfectly with relaxation. I think these are the magical “ingredients” to accomplishing greatness, which everybody is capable of. Relaxation in whichever form is not only healing in essence, it also facilitates the whispers of Spirit to come through more clearly with heightened intuition and wisdom. It is then that the gateway to the Soul Source is most open.

Bottom line is: Things might not always be easy, but do we want them to be easy? Wouldn’t that be minimizing our potential, growth and expansion?

So, let this be a year of complete surrender to what is, of love, peace, freedom, joy and chocolate, lots of chocolate!

And it will be so, because we make it happen.

The Zen Mind: Watch Full Documentary Here

The emergence of Zen as a distinct school of Buddhism was first documented in China in the 7th century CE. From China, Zen spread south to Vietnam, and east to Korea and Japan. As a matter of tradition, the establishment of Zen is credited to the South Indian prince-turned-monk Bodhidharma, who came to China to teach a “special transmission outside scriptures, not founded on words or letters”.

This beautiful documentary takes you into the very private world of The Zen Mind – the mind searching for enlightenment. Journey across Japan from the small zen centers of Tokyo to the enormous zen monasteries in the remote mountains and glimpse into the secret practices of a zen monk.

Zen is a school of Mahāyāna Buddhism. The Japanese word Zen is derived from the Chinese word Chán, which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyāna, which means “meditation” or “meditative state”.

Zen emphasizes experiential prajñā in the attainment of enlightenment. As such, it de-emphasizes theoretical knowledge in favor of direct realization through meditation and dharma practice. The teachings of Zen include various sources of Mahāyāna thought, including the Prajñāpāramitā literature and the teachings of the Yogācāra and Tathāgatagarbha schools.

The Veil Is Thinner Than Ever

I enjoy writing reports about enlightenment, but some of the advice we’ve been given by spiritual teachers from the past isn’t quite relevant to the present.

Depending on which teacher you listen to, the veil was much thicker when they shared their teachings with the world. We’re capable of achieving a lot more in terms of consciousness exploration than when a lot of spiritual teachers were in their prime, and this is a liberating thing to realize. The veil’s a lot thinner than it used to be, and all it takes is a small meditation to realize that we can glimpse a higher state of consciousness pretty easily.

Explore the pathways of your spirit
Explore the pathways of your spirit

Exploring our consciousness gets easier with every year that passes, and all we need to do is show a little effort to glimpse things that might’ve been unheard of in some spiritual teachers’ heyday. We don’t need to follow all the strict and rigid rules that were dictated by people who found enlightenment when the veil between the material and the spiritual was stronger, and for the most part, we can chart our own path; expand our consciousness in our own way. Meditation is a great way to explore the etheric abyss, but we don’t have to be rigid about it to glimpse spirit.

We can make our own meditation, and by that I mean we can find things that help us expand our consciousness without having to sternly meditate. There’s nothing wrong with dedicated meditation, and I’d recommend finding a place to sit in silence and contemplation every now and then, but the difference between now and before is that we don’t have to. We can meditate in whatever way works for us, and a lot of people use music to calm the mind and get to a place beyond the physical senses. Music is one of the best ways to meditate, and whether we listen to it or play it, it’s a helpful tool in the expansion of consciousness. Other people use things like writing to meditate, and while writing isn’t as potent of a way to access spirit as music or direct meditation, it still connects us with a higher aspect of our consciousness, which, if we stay connected with, we can allow to speak through our writings. Instead of hearing from a lone spiritual writer, you could hear from their inner voice without realizing it (or without them realizing it).

The Veil of Oblivion is thinner than ever
The Veil of Oblivion is thinner than ever

One of the benefits of the decreasing veil is that we can use creativity to bridge the gap and connect with spirit in a potent way, and we might as well take the opportunity. No matter how you like to express yourself, you can use creativity to elevate your awareness and help others understand that we live in an innately spiritual world. You can use the creative inspiration we’ve all felt at one time or another to connect with your inner voice and let it speak through you, and while channeling is pretty popular right now, I think writing can become the new channeling if we let it. There’ll always be people who want to communicate with entities in higher realms, but those of us who are more passionate about maintaining a connection with our inner voice (and subsequently, the universe), can deepen this connection with every spiritually inspired thing we do. It’s safe to say that most conscious musicians pick up on their inner voice when they write music that’s inspired by spirit, but again, it doesn’t matter what creative avenue we use to connect as long as it works for us and we diligently pursue it. I honestly think the pursuit of creativity will connect us with a higher aspect of our consciousness, and with how much the veil’s thinning, it stands to reason that creativity, which has always been a potent way to connect, will help us transcend the veil and express the spirit in an unhindered way. The only thing that stops us from connecting is our unwillingness or hesitation, and we’ll have to be confident in ourselves and the things we’ve come here to do if we want to maintain a potent creative and spiritual connection. Self-confidence is important if we want to all-out diminish the veil that stands between us and a higher perception, and everything seems to get easier when we’re confident in ourselves. Together with an open mind and a flowing heart, self-confidence will ensure that we use our creativity to consistently tear down the barrier between us and that omnipotent aspect of our consciousness that can flow through us and amaze us (and everyone else). We’re all creative powerhouses who are capable of enlightenment, but we have to realize it before we can do anything significant. We have to realize that we’re in a great position to raise the collective vibration, and in my opinion, collective ascension will result from creativity, meditation and spiritually inspired activism.

Spiritual Activism
Activism and Spirituality seem to go hand in hand these days, and possibly is the only form of revolution that will change the systems.

I think this is the great secret the hippies touched on in the sixties and seventies. They realized that creativity, activism and a direct exploration of our consciousness could enlighten the world, and some of them are still on a journey to elevate the planetary consciousness with those three things. The hippies got it right for the most part, but admittedly, some of them got lost in the stereotypical ‘sex, drugs and rock n roll’. We’re the new generation, and we can correct whatever perceived errors were made by the awakening generations before us while integrating the things they got right into our attempts to raise our consciousness. The beatniks, the hippies, the Rastas and every other counterculture group that came to us in the fifties, sixties and seventies had touched on something that we can now expand, and expanding it will get easier as the veil becomes thinner and we’re eventually left with no obstacles in our way. As we grow closer with spirit, let’s remember to embrace the creative and meditative practices that are aligning us with it and raising the collective vibration. Let’s keep in mind that we don’t have to meditate for hours on end just to get a potent glimpse, and we can write articles, paint pictures or play music to weaken the veil. We don’t have to follow all the rigid rules we’ve been given about enlightenment, and we don’t have to renounce the whole world. We can embrace the world without being corrupted by the aspects of society that hold us back, and we don’t get anywhere by avoiding any aspect of reality, lower or higher. We have to integrate and accept the lower, darker aspects of reality before we can enjoy anything higher, and this requires us to embrace everything about our existence on this planet. Collective enlightenment is possible, especially right now, but those of us who’ve become aware will have to work (and play) hard to create it. We’ll also want to take some time in quiet, contemplative stillness every now and then. Creativity is one of the most potent ways to align, but direct meditation still takes the cake. Above all, we have to remember to empower ourselves and, again, have confidence in our ability to complete the tasks at hand each day. We’re capable of anything we’re willing to believe we’re capable of, and only when we stop ourselves do we fail to achieve anything significant. No matter what we do, we have to believe in ourselves or it’ll all go south. With, faith, self-empowerment and the recognition that we don’t have to follow someone else’s rules, our spiritual evolution will be a breeze and we’ll enjoy everything we do to awaken the world. I envision a world where every empowered person is willing to follow their passion, and we’ll have to create this world if we want collective enlightenment.
