The Polygamist's Daughter

Stories, Reflections and Conclusions of Life on the Inside


Surviving The Great Apocalypse

Here is another snippet from my book Fly, Fly Away. It gives readers a quick glimpse into the reason people are so afraid to leave once they join.

Fear is the greatest controller of the human body, heart, mind and spirit.  

The night following Hannah’s nearly tragic accident we held our weekly Family Home Meeting. Wednesday evenings throughout the community, were reserved for family meetings. Each family spent the evening at home in spiritual study, conversation and prayer. Typically, the subject for our family meetings was apocalyptic prophesies regarding the last days. My father seemed clearly obsessed with the doom and gloom predictions that every prophet since the beginning of recorded history has made about the end of times, and he painstakingly ingrained those stories into our innocent, young, impressionable minds. The dreams of Daniel, Revelations of Isaiah, predictions of Nostradamus, and forecasts of Joseph Smith and other Mormon prophets, and my father’s own interpretations were wrapped up into one end-of-the-world melodrama that was guaranteed to happen in my lifetime. Most definitely before the year 2,000, which was seen by us as the beginning of the seventh day, (each day represented as a thousand years) of earth’s existence, and earth’s very own personal Sabbath. Those predictions were the reason we fled to the mountains, grew our own food, had years of supplies in the basement and guns to protect ourselves from the government and unavoidable intrusion from China, Mexico and Russia.

The apocalypse was upon us at any moment!

The battle of Armageddon and the second coming of Christ, separation of wheat from chaff, (we of course were the wheat), the ascension of only a chosen few and the resurrection of the bodies of Mormon Saints being lifted up and restored to wholeness, was inevitable. World War III and America being attacked from all borders, missionaries rotting in the streets of Jerusalem and pestilence against those who were sinful loomed on our doorstep. The sun turning to darkness and blood running in the streets, wars and rumors of wars, violent earthquakes and all manner of destruction, another planet slamming into ours and tearing of the veil between good and evil, great disease, abominations, and more… were my inevitable destiny. On that great and dreadful day, God would raise his mighty hand, smite the evil-doers and cleanse the earth of sinners and all inequities. Only 144,000 people would survive the great cleansing and baptism by fire. All of the prophesies would then finally be fulfilled. And we, along with those like us, would be the only ones to benefit from God’s wrath upon His children.

These stories led to nightmares that haunted me well into adulthood, until I finally came to understand how many of the prophesies were parables and metaphors, rather than events.

The prophesies are periods of time throughout history rather than one big day. They tell of a time when fear begins to leave the planet and love returns, when the Divine Feminine is resurrected and restored to Her mantle beside the Divine Masculine and equality and harmony are restored to Earth’s children. We are in the midst of it right now and have been for over 50 years. We are all ascending, not just a chosen few. The process isn’t pretty, and we will get there, if we don’t destroy ourselves first.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for and we are the ones who will save us from ourselves. 

As they say, the pen is mightier than the sword. We can use it as a weapon of mass destruction or use it as a tool for peace.

I am so grateful to be free of the stories that once tormented my soul and kept my spirit captive in fear. Today I am free to see what is possible for ALL of humanity rather than just a supposed chosen few.

Until next time, be Fearless & Free!

Have you ever noticed how some women struggle with asking for what they really want?

Maybe it’s taking on a bigger client, taking their business or movement to the next level or even asking family for support?

Female business owners are extraordinary. They love their business, clients and purpose. Driven by their hearts, they want to make a difference in their communities and the world.

1987 Harmonic Convergence

In August of 1987 a friend of mine invited me to attend church with her. At that point in my life I wanted nothing to do with church of any kind. I had been battling suicide for over five years which resulted from my extremely patriarchal, fundamentalist upbringing, and I knew I couldn’t find reprieve from my suffering in the same beliefs that created it. I was only 21 yet very tapped into my intuition.

Something about this girl and her family was different. They didn’t come across as the faux friend I felt bombarded with from others who wanted to assimilate (fellowship) me into their belief system. I had  left Montana as a teenager and moved to Salt Lake City to find myself. Everyone I met seemed to want to convert me to “real” Mormonism. But not this family. They seemed to me to be genuine and real, with no strings attached.

My friend told me about the female minister at her church and that she would be teaching a lesson on prosperity the following Sunday. That I needed to see – a woman leading the show and talking positively about money? Both were beyond my imagination.

Out of curiosity I took my friend up on her invitation. That one random Sunday forever changed my life. It took me in a direction I never imagined possible. It took me on a journey of self-discovery, self-improvement and eventually, self-realization. All of that new age enlightenment taught me how to heal my life and see a much bigger picture of myself and the universe. Not through the church itself so much, but through the books in the bookstore. Wayne Dyer and his friends became my teachers. And yes, the Church of Religious Science – now the Centers for Spiritual Living – literally saved my life.

There have been other similar organizations that I’ve attended over the years, such as Unity, Unitarian and various Science of Mind based spiritual centers. They feed my soul rather than attempt to control it. All of them have bookstores that stimulate my emotional and spiritual analysis and elevate my self-awareness.

August of 1987 was a big year, not just for me but for the planet as a whole. It was the time of Harmonic Convergence when a new level of enlightened energy began coming to our planet. Of course I didn’t know it at the time but now I see the synchronicity. I am so glad I said yes to my friend and in so doing, said yes to life and the direction of my life purpose. All those years ago I could have never imagined where I am today.

Another Harmonic Convergence begins tomorrow. I’m curious to see where it takes us…
