Spring 2005

Greetings, Friends!

With Spring comes a new affirmation of the unstoppable, unconditional nature of Life Force (also known as Love). No matter how distracted we become; no matter how polarized we are into the lower realms of turbulence and trauma, Source is constantly, unconditionally, radiating Love, and Nature is doing what Nature does: expressing itself without reservation. And this is what we, too, are called to do: Despite what is happening around us, we are pledged to remember the Truth of Who We Are and express that without reservation, just as the flora and fauna of Spring do.

We are mandated to ignore the drama of duality and rise up to the Unified Field of Oneness, Wholeness, and Harmony, and attune ever more closely with the Divine Design. The more we do so, the more our experience will be characterized by ease, joy, and beauty, and the more we will assist in restoring the alignment of humanity at large. My hope is that each time you notice the beauty of Spring, it will serve as a reminder to you of who you are in Truth, and what you are here on the planet to do!

Speaking of JOY, and of flora and fauna, I hope you’ve gotten word of our upcoming Joy Weekend in gorgeous flora and fauna-filled South Louisiana, May 13-15! It’s going to be an uplifting experience of learning to increase our capacity for unconditional joy, with others who are committed to rising in frequency and recreating Eden. If you’re not in the area, believe me, it’ll be worth traveling for—we’re not only going to co-create a powerful, transformational learning experience, we’re going to have BIG FUN! To read more about what we have planned, and the outrageously beautiful surroundings for our time together, click here! Hope to meet you at the “Joyfest”!

In Joy,

It’s Your Job (and comes with a lot of perks!)

Unconditional Radiance

The fastest way to raise your frequency is to do the job you were designed to do. You were designed to love. You were designed to radiate Love unconditionally. Now before you go, “Oh THAT again. I’ve tried loving unconditionally, and it is impossible,” you need to understand that what I’m saying is different. What I’m saying is that you are to love, plain and simple. Not love somebody. Not love something. Just to love. Okay, in a sense, you are to love somebody or something, but not in the ordinary sense. You are simply to love God.

You were designed to be a receiver and transmitter of Life Force, also known as Love. The ability to do that is hard-wired into your body-mind. But we have largely forgotten how that is designed to work, and confuse the act of loving with our personal relationships with other human beings. Loving is rightly an impersonal act. Now, I’m not saying that there can’t be a personal aspect to loving—of course there can and is. However, one of the things that stops us from doing what we are designed to do is that we tend to tie the act of loving—or not loving—into a recipient, or lack thereof.

There actually always is a recipient of your Love—it’s just probably a little different than you may have considered before. You were designed to participate in a mighty cycle of Love, issuing from God, returning to God. If you’ve read Recreating Eden, you know that there is a masculine aspect of God, and a feminine aspect. When you radiate Love, you are participating in the larger action of “Father God” (masculine, radiating aspect) loving “Mother God” (feminine, receiving aspect). Both at the macro level of God—God the Source—and the personal level—God In You, there is a radiation of Love and a receiving of Love between the masculine and feminine aspects. This is how it is designed to work: Source radiates, the feminine within you receives, the masculine within you radiates, Source receives and the cycle continues. The more dynamically the feminine and masculine within you participate in the larger cycle of God loving God, the higher your frequency and the more paradisiacal your life is.

In the process, the experience of Love in all Creation is increased. This is where the personal aspect of loving comes in. When you understand that God is in everyone and everything, you know that as you radiate Love unconditionally, and hold an entity in your consciousness, their experience of the Love increases. The only Love that we experience is of God, not of another person. When we feel Love from someone else—or think we do—it’s merely that the radiance from God In Them is catalyzing a greater experience of attunement with God In Us. It is attuning us with the mighty flow of Love that God radiates constantly. There is no Love but the Love of God, loving God.

Practically speaking, what we are called to do is to radiate Love the way that Source does. We are to radiate it whether or not we feel it is being received (it always is—just not necessarily consciously received by the object of your focus). We are called to radiate Love whether or not we believe someone “deserves” it: God always “deserves” it! Remember, you are not actually loving a person or a thing—you are loving God. You may feel fondness for the particular configuration of form that God has created in another person, but as for Love, you never get Love from outside yourself—when you experience Love, you are only experiencing the movement of Life Force through you. You are participating in the cycle of Love from God, to God. 

We are called to radiate Love even when we feel we don’t we have it in us. But here’s a cool thing to know: while you can’t radiate Love unless you first receive it, the intention to radiate it will initiate the flow of Love to you from Source. As you may remember from Recreating Eden, the Adam in you—the inner masculine—may be holding the inner feminine—Eve—out of alignment. The easiest way to turn this around is for Adam to decide to consciously radiate Love. The act of doing so aligns both aspects of you the way that they were designed to be. When you engage your masculine, radiant aspect in the job it was designed for, that automatically puts Eve in the receptive position, and Adam in the radiating position. And the rest is as natural as breathing. Because it’s what you were designed to do, you were born knowing how to Love. Neat system, don’t you think?!

Yes, we are to radiate Love no matter what. Bad mood? Don’t feel like loving? The fastest way to raise your frequency upward out of less-than-joy—and to experience more Love, yourself—is to do what you are designed to do! We are to be as consistent and persistent at radiating Love as is God. What if God got in a snit and withheld Life Force/Love because we weren’t consciously open to receive it? The Whole of Creation would collapse! What if God withheld Life Force/Love because we weren’t aware or appreciating it? What if God withheld Life Force/Love because we were being jerks? Thankfully, God radiates Love impersonally, unfailingly, unconditionally. Love radiates from God whether we appreciate it or are unaware of it. Love radiates from Source regardless of what we do—or don’t do. When we intend to Love in the same constant and impersonal way as does God, the Source, and do so more and more, our journey home to the higher frequencies where ease and joy are the norms, is expedited exponentially. Indeed, unconditional radiance is the key to everything.

So, the next time someone cuts you off in traffic and you’re tempted to go into reverse polarity, withhold Love, and perhaps even actively focus the opposite of Love in the offender’s direction, understand that you are truly removing yourself from the flow of Life Force and Love, reducing your own frequency (and thus, the frequency of the Whole), and you are removing yourself from the cycle of God loving God that you were designed to facilitate. In such a situation, you are doing the exact opposite of what is needed—whenever there is disharmony, what is needed is not judgment and reaction, what is needed is more Love. I understand that it is human nature (or rather, the ego’s and reptilian brain’s nature) to react defensively and unlovingly, but our very job as human beings, and certainly, as re-creators of Eden, is to listen to and obey God In Us, ignore the serpent, and continue radiating Love, no matter what! If you should happen to be pulled out of alignment by your ego, just take a deep breath, let your ego know you’re on to it, tell it to be silent, center yourself in the Truth, align with your Spirit, and radiate Love as you were intended to do. You'll be surprised how wonderful it feels—after all, it’s what you were designed for!

Joy? Less-than-joy? The choice is yours!

Choosing Joy

Are you at home in joy, or is joy just a place you visit from time to time when the stars align and conditions are somehow just right? For far too many of us, joy is less like home base, and more like an infrequently visited vacation place, which we think of wistfully and longingly during the emotionally turbulent trials and tribulations of Earth life.  But according to the way you are designed, you are intended to live in joy. Joy is to be your emotional “default setting”—the emotional state you naturally come back to whenever the highs and lows level out. Actually, the highs and lows aren’t a part of the state in which you were designed to live—they are unique to the current tumultuous reality state in which we currently dwell here on Earth. In the reality state in which we were designed to thrive, there are no lows—just degrees of joy.

So what is joy, anyway? Joy is your emotional response to higher frequency. It is catalyzed by being within the frequency range of your Spirit, the highest-frequency aspect of you. Joy is the feeling you experience when you are aligned with the Divine Design for Harmony and Wholeness, and is a sign that you are on the right track—a beacon you can use to navigate upward in frequency back to your true Home in the Divine Design. This “Home” to which I am referring is the blissful reality referred to in sacred texts as “The Garden of Eden.” It is the highest frequency at which you can manifest as a human being. When you are within range of it, you experience joy. When you drop in frequency below the vibrational range of Home, you experience “less-than-joy”—sometimes much less than joy!

If joy is our natural state, why would we stay out of joy for even a minute? Heaven knows, joy is certainly more pleasurable than less-than-joy! Until now, most of us didn’t understand that we had a choice to be in or out of joy; didn’t understand the “mechanics” of being in joy. We were victims of our emotions—but we don’t have to be. In a nutshell, here’s how you came to primarily reside outside the realm of joy. This is the selfsame story as the “Fall of Man from the Garden of Eden,” and can be summed up like this: “Adam and Eve were in the Garden and all was blissful until they disregarded what God told them in favor of what the serpent was telling them, and suddenly, they found themselves in a world of hurt.” That’s essentially why you are absent from the realm of joy, too.

In the story of the Fall, God represents your all-wise, perfectly aligned Spirit, whose motives are Wholeness and Harmony, and whose milieu is the Unified Field of Oneness—the realm of joy. The serpent represents your reptilian brain, the primitive brain structure whose motives are fear and separation, and whose milieu is duality—the realm of misery. The reptilian brain’s first lieutenant is your ego. Your ego dances to the reptilian brain’s dissonant tune, advancing its notions that you are a stand-alone entity, that there’s never enough, and that the world is out to get you. Not very joyful stuff! (And all lies, by the way.) The truth is that you are one with all Creation, you have access to unlimited resources, and the Divine Design is set up to support you completely. Definitely joyful!

Fortunately, the same free will that gets us expelled from the realm of joy can be used to get us back there. By doing the reverse of what Eve and Adam did in the story of the Fall, we can reclaim our tenure in the realm of joy. We can choose to stop allowing our egos to deceive us—stop allowing them to depress our frequency, and thus, our emotional experience. We can tune our frequency to our Spirits’ messages of Love, Oneness, and Harmony instead of remaining under the influence of our egos’ messages of fear and separation. We can choose joy! We can deliberately create the conditions that facilitate joy, and after we are practiced at doing this, we will find that our default setting is higher. The more time you spend in joy, the higher your emotional set point will naturally be. And the higher your set point, the more joy-enhancing the conditions that manifest in your life will be, and the easier it will be to stay in joy! Prime Principle, the law of attraction, makes this so.

About now, you may be asking “How? How do I choose joy?” First, understand that your Spirit is always radiating Love to you, always seeking to align you, always ready to restore you to harmony, always ready to pull you close, back up to the frequency level of bliss. Know that the Divine Design for Wholeness and Harmony is always in operation, ready for you to take your place in it. Since joy is your natural state, you don’t have to make joy happen, you simply need to allow it. Like a helium balloon that rises heavenward when you release it, all you need do is let go of trying to control your experience at the human, ego-dominated level, and rise up to take your place at higher frequency! Release your life and your affairs to the stewardship of God In You, listen to and obey your Spirit above all, and trust that with your Spirit in charge, you are always guided to greater and greater harmony.

The external confirmation of your increased tenure in the joy space will soon become evident, but at first, your outer experience may be anything but inspiring of joy. In order to turn things around, you have to refuse to be hooked into the ego’s evidence-based approach to sizing up the situation and dictating emotional response based on what it finds to confirm its fears. Instead, focus on that which is beautiful, that which confirms the integrity of the Divine Design, and connects you consciously with harmony and wholeness. Purposefully create conditions that support you in raising your frequency and experiencing joy. Do what you know from experience helps you access happy feelings—that supports a closeness with your Spirit and helps you feel more connected to the Whole. Put on some uplifting music. Meditate. Go out in nature. Play with your dog. Dance. Sing. Take a walk. Watch the sun set. Do something egoless for someone purely out of Love. Do all of the above! Whatever you love to do, whatever lightens and lifts you, do it—do it with the intention of rising to joy.

And be thankful. Gratitude is communion with your Spirit, and is a powerful tool for raising frequency. Whenever you feel even a hint of joy, go immediately into gratitude to your Spirit. Use gratitude like you’d use bellows to transform a spark into a flame. When you feel your frequency rising, use your breath and your gratitude to go higher. Say “Thank you, thank you, thank you” to your Spirit and feel your frequency soar! When ego threatens to pull you down out of joy and back into duality with its lower frequency messages of fear, judgment, doubt, or general disgruntlement, don’t struggle against it—let that be your cue to relax back into the loving, healing embrace of your Spirit and the Divine Design for Wholeness and Harmony.

By using this simple, but powerful approach, you will learn to consciously rise in frequency, raise your emotional set point, and spend a lot more time in your true home—joy. This is not just a blessing for you, it’s a blessing to all whose lives you touch—and, indeed, to all Creation, as when your frequency is raised, the frequency of the Whole is raised, and we are all that much closer to Home.

Power Tool

Inner centrifuge

Here’s a nifty trick to use to clear yourself of any psychic “stuff” you may pick up as you move through the world. I learned the basic format for it last summer from Christa Reynolds, who had the booth space adjacent to ours at INATS West and was selling the cool game she invented called “Enlighten.” I took her basic idea and tailored it a bit to make it mine.

Being someone who had not yet mastered the art of being open-hearted without sponging up the energy of others, I was walking around like a zombie on day two of the tradeshow. She asked me what was going on with me (I was obviously not as radiant as I had been on day one) and when I explained, she said, “Oh. You just need to spin it off.” And I said, “Cool! HOW?!”

Here is the basic method she gave me, with my own refinements added.

  1. Go somewhere where you can be out of the hustle bustle and get centered (once you are practiced at this, you can do it anywhere, in any situation).
  2. Imagine that there’s an axis that starts 12 inches above the top of your head and extends down through your body to 12 inches below your feet.
  3. Pretend that you’re a salad spinner and, in your mind, spin your energy counter clockwise on your axis, imagining any inharmonious, “yucky” energy flying out from you by centrifugal force, just as the water spins out of lettuce in a salad spinner.

To assure that you’re not adding pollution to the atmosphere around you, you can either imagine that this yucky energy hits the outside wall of the container and pools down and drains down into Mother Earth where it can transmuted and used as fertilizer, or you can see it transforming into golden drops of pure Love energy as it spins away from your axis, blessing the world as it flies further and further out from center.

I always feel VERY refreshed, enlivened, clear and centered after doing this! Thanks, Christa!

Raising Your Frequency with Essential Oils

We have been provided with many amazing tools to assist us in raising our frequency higher so that we can emerge from the turmoil of duality into the harmony of the Oneness Matrix, and one of the most powerful of these is aromatherapy, utilizing therapeutic-grade essential oils. Inhaling pure, natural essential oils raises your frequency easily and joyfully! How? We’ll explore that…

The volatile essences of aromatic plants contain potent, complex, natural chemical compounds that work at multiple levels to catalyze physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Science is at last looking in earnest at the mechanical action essential oils have on organisms, but perhaps the oils’ most important, and at the same time, most under-explored, factor, is their inherent frequency—their intact Life Force Energy and intelligence. Indeed, their greatest gift may be in their very consciousness, divinely encoded, and energized by Earth and Sun, that is available to help us raise our own. It is said by some that “Christ Consciousness” is in the oils. It surely appears that there is higher electromagnetic patterning in essential oils that assists our minds in realigning with the Divine Design for Harmony and Wholeness and that catalyzes a shift in our brains that can open us to higher awareness.

Mystics throughout the ages have used essential oils to transcend fear and access higher states of awareness, as well as to reinforce the human electrical field and its connection with the cosmic energy grids of the Divine Design for Wholeness and Harmony. It is no coincidence that the Magi included frankincense and myrrh with the (mono-atomic) gold they brought to the infant Jesus. Remembrance of his divine origins was a vital aspect of Jesus’ mission on Planet Earth—just as it is a vital aspect of our own—so they were ideal gifts for the newborn. Frankincense and myrrh are well-known for their ability to profoundly support physical health, but more to the point, they assist in reaching and maintaining higher states of consciousness and a knowing of our connection with the Divine by communication with the pineal gland, or “Cave of Brahma” in the Hindu tradition.

The pineal is considered your access point to the higher realms and corresponds to the “third eye chakra.” You might call it a downloading site for information from Spirit. At a gross level, sesquiterpenes, chemical compounds found in many essential oils such as frankincense, sandalwood, and myrrh, are capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and oxygenating the pineal gland, which is, in itself, a frequency-raising action, and surely leads to a higher ability to commune with Divinity. But perhaps essential oils also affect spiritual communion by imparting other subtle information via the olfactory and amydala gland, thus facilitating the rising up to close the gap between the body-mind and the Spirit. Perhaps they are encoded with a sort of reminder of where we truly belong in the scheme of things and jog our memories of Who We Are. However it works, the knowing that certain oils enhance the capacity to attune with Higher Mind and access the Unified Field of Oneness is a powerful reason to avail yourself of these precious gifts from the Creator.

There are a myriad of ways to use essential oils, and even when using them expressly for purposes of physical healing, such as applying lavender to a burn, or inhaling eucalyptus to alleviate symptoms of a cold, you will still be benefiting from their metaphysical properties. However, using oils purposefully for communion with your Spirit is powerful, not only because of the interaction between you and the oils, but because of the intention you are expressing with your actions and thoughts. Before meditating, praying, or shamanic journeying, try putting a drop of your favorite high-frequency oil in your palm, and then use the index finger of your other hand to activate it by stirring it clockwise several times, dab it on your third eye, temples, and heart, or wherever your intuition suggests, before rubbing your palms together, cupping them in front of your face, and inhaling deeply. This will catalyze an instant rise in frequency, so that the “rest of you” is vibrationally closer in frequency to your Spirit. Some of my favorites for this purpose are frankincense, rose, and oils from conifers, as well as blends by Young Living, including “Transformation,” “Joy,” “Gathering,” “Gratitude,” “Sacred Mountain,” and all of the oils in the Seventh Heaven kit.

It is crucial that we use only the purest, most perfectly produced essential oils we can find for doing sacred work. Adulterated oils or oils produced under compromised circumstances do not carry the high Life Force that is needed for optimal healing and spiritual activation, and indeed, poor quality oils can impede your progress instead of enhancing it. Only oils produced with the conscious intent of maintaining their purity and Life Force are suitable for the highest healing. To order therapeutic-grade essential oils, click here.

Instant Frequency Boosters

Now that warm weather is here, just being out in nature will raise your frequency, but here are some things to do while you’re outside...

  • Take your shoes off, stand barefoot in the grass, wiggle your toes, and commune with Mother Earth and exchange energy with her.
  • Appreciate a flower. Notice the color, the shape, the fragrance, the perfection. Appreciation, in and of itself, is an express elevator to higher levels of frequency, and the colors, shapes, fragrances, and energy of flowers are not only easy to appreciate, they tune you into nature’s perfection, and remind you of the Divine Design, where you, too, are designed to operate.
  • Hug a tree. I know this is a cliché—but clichés are clichés for a reason—there’s something to them! Put your arms around the tree’s trunk, or lean your back against a tree, and you will feel the pulsation of Life Force in it. This helps you feel your Oneness with all living things, which is definitely an instant frequency booster! From experience, I can tell you, if you ask the tree a question, you may just find a highly intelligent answer forming in your mind…
