Recently as I drove down the road watching commuters battling out for a space in the line of traffic, I sat back and thought why? Why does one cram themselves into a line that does not go much further than one car length. This brought me back to a conversation with my spiritual teacher. Steer the course, do not ver to the left or right. A song plays over the speakers, the lyrics of a change, a battle, of peace….
Which brought me back to a moment, a moment of an exchange with a wise woman. A stranger really to me, all of my life, I have people stop and tell me their life stories. My children often asking why would a stranger tell me that? I have just accepted that people come to me to tell their stories. Sometimes, they need a wise voice of innate wisdom to shine forward without judgement, without conviction, a person to listen, to help them release this.
This lady looked at me and said, “Wow an ascended one, I’ve never met one in person before and you look nothing like I would think an ascended one should look like.” I remember looking at her and wondering, but not saying anything, as I knew she had a story that she would share; and what a beautiful story it was. It wasn’t the story; it was what she said, this was years ago; “ascended, ascension; isn’t for the faint of heart and it will take much energy, love and light dear one, be prepared as it will come and you will easily glide up the spiral.”
At the time, I was preparing for a major divorce and custody battle. Little did I know that was much easier than ascension. My spiritual teacher will gently guide me, and yet the human psyche at first wanted the ego to rage, bark and scream. Almost like a two-year old not being allowed to have a cookie before dinner. Yet, this is going to happen, go with grace and it will come with ease. Some has been filled full of ease, and some would be easier to deal with a two-year old having a tantrum.
Come back to peace, love and light. In steps the next wise woman, I am walking in the store and ran right into her. She remarks, “Darlin, get your head out of the clouds.” I look her, smile and say,“Ha clouds, that too easy, try galactic travel or what dimension did I float off to, traversing the mundane of today’s humanistic mess.” She smiled and replies, “Ascension is not easy, especially in the modern ways. You do not look like one, so many may not even realize. It’s not the appearance; it’s the light, the love that matters.”
I am a special education, so I am a pro at what is called “wait time.” Well, I am a pro with others, “wait time,” me well in truth, I am not usually a slow learner, and yet, may need an accelerated IEP to slow my horses, so to speak. (As my spiritual teacher often says, “Dear the Aries in you.”) I look at her and wait, she smiles a big grin and says, “Dear one, you are doing much better than you give yourself credit for; however patience is necessary. The biggest patience that you need is your own transformation to ascension. you are almost across that bridge to a major level up, be patient. Years ago, you were told that you do not look like an ascended one, in truth, you’re a more modern version. Your spiritual mentor has recently given you knowledge of the changes that will come.” Then she smiles and says, “Be Kind, Rewind,” and instance is gone, I look around the aisle and do not see her.
Slowly, I approach the checkout; barely able to speak to anyone, and yet like moths to the light people dance around me. I pay for my items and sit in my vehicle. No thoughts, nothing, just sit and allow the wisdom that was also downloaded settle and absorb into my light.
The latest wise woman, was the same week as recent the crystal light activation January 2015, the full moon and just after the winter solstice. It has taken me a bit to settle into the next step. One moment, I am walking in the divine feminine goddess of innate wisdom that heralds the divine wisdom of love and light; and the next I am submerged in a hot bath trying to release the negative energies that seems to want to invade my aura.
And in truth, I do not wear flowy robes, probably never will. I am more of a mover. singer, dancer with the heart of a youth filled full of love and light. Hence the comment “Be Kind, Rewind.” Go back to my heart, my joy, my peaceful grace. One thing that has come about with the crystal light activation is peace, harmony and joy. We need much more of it. If ya feel like dancing, dance; if you feel like singing, sing. Life is to be lived and enjoyed with a beauty that is deep within us all.
Magical Blessings of love and light!
