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!

I’m Up-Leveling Again

It’s been a while since I last connected with you and here’s why. I am up-leveling again in the game of life.  To be more precise, I am resurrecting who I am really here to be.

Resurrection stems from the word serge. It is a resurgence of energy. 

I am experiencing a resurgence of energy that I haven’t felt in a few years. Here is why; I was trying to be someone I am not. At the very least, I was afraid to be more of who I am. Several months ago I started asking myself, “Where is that passion for life I had a few years ago? What happened to jumping out of bed, excited to start a new day? Why do I feel like I am treading water and stuck in a whirlpool?” Then the answer came to me. It started showing up everywhere. The reason I was feeling stuck is because I was slightly off path. The insight came to me that if I would just move back over a couple of feet and get back on track, everything would start flowing again.  I’m not talking about the flow of money. Financially I am better off than I have been since before the last recession, this is more about being in the flow of life and really feeling alive.

After seeing the signs everywhere I am now back on track. This time with an up-leveling in understanding a few more years of wisdom.

Several years ago I came to the understanding that my purpose as a messenger is to teach spiritual freedom. I even went so far as to begin branding myself as the “Spiritual Liberation Catalyst.” I wrote my book, Transcending Fear, in perfect alignment with this message of freedom and even had readers tell me how much my book had changed their lives. Then I decided I needed to figure out how to turn my message into a moneymaker. There is certainly nothing wrong with that.  Money is a necessity and in the hands of love it can change the world. But, what happened for me is that in the process of trying to create a beautiful brand for the mainstream, I forgot about my message to the stream I am here to teach and I lost my own flow.

What I am getting around to saying after all of that, is that I am returning to what I am here to teach. I am here to teach spiritual freedom, which is so much bigger than personal self-worth, and so much more valuable in my perspective.

Tweetable: Self-worth and being in full ownership of your worthiness, is a part of spiritual freedom and can only be achieved after digging through the layers of false beliefs that hold your spirit and self-worth captive.

Over the next few weeks I will be working with my branding and design guru, Chelsey Marie, to create a new brand that reflects who I really am and what I am really here to teach. I am no longer afraid to step out on the leading edge of thought and speak my truth.  Some of you may disagree with my teachings and perspectives and go running for the hills, and some of you will say to yourself, “It’s about time someone has the courage to say these things,” and feel so inspired by my words that you want to share them with your friends.  I am not attached to either one because I am here to teach, pure and simple. How my words are received are up to the receiver.

This time next month you can expect a fabulous new brand and a new free gift to inspire your mind, heart, body and spirit and begin you on the path to spiritual freedom.

Until next time, find courage, trust yourself and be free!

Resurrecting the Divine Feminine

earth goddess

As a child I was taught that Easter was a Pagan holiday and therefore an evil holiday.

We believed that Jesus was born on April 6th. That he died on his 33rd birthday, followed three days later with his mysterious resurrection. Rather than an Easter celebration we had a birthday celebration, with birthday cake and all. It was a celebration of Jesus in his physical life and his promise of eternal life.

Slowly the eggs, bunnies and other “worldly” aspects of Easter sneaked their way into our secluded community. For many years I felt very confused about what bunnies and eggs had to do with The Christ’s resurrection. Long after many families in the community gave up the strictness surrounding the celebration of Pagan holidays, my father was a stickler about it. My first official Easter egg hunt didn’t come until I had kids of my own and a real reason to celebrate. Until recently I did not understand what father meant by “Pagan” and now I finally do.

Knowing what I now know, Easter has a whole new meaning. For me it is a celebration of resurrecting the Divine Feminine.

There is nothing bad or evil about Paganism. What could be so wrong with celebrating our Mother? Why did we feel it so necessary at one point in our human evolution to belittle the Divine Feminine and reduce Her to nothing more than dirt? In reducing Her and all of Her qualities we have nearly destroyed our home. As we created the belief that the God is only masculine, we forgot about our feminine. As we forgot about our Mother we deprived ourselves of really knowing Her unconditional love, compassion and support. And yet, even without Her acknowledgement, She has continued to support us, feed us, clothe us, heal us and love us. She has continued to shower us with Her abundance, even as we bleed Her dry and abuse Her. That is unconditional love of a mother. Unconditional love is not the narcissistic and egotistic love of the Divine Masculine I was raised with.

We now live in an amazing time of our human evolution, when more and more of us are waking up from our dark slumber and rising above our fear-based beliefs.

This is the time of the great resurrection and ascension that has been foretold. It simply doesn’t look the way so many expect it to look. It is the resurrection of the Christ Consciousness. It is the resurrection of unconditional love, that energy that is at the heart of the Divine Feminine. We are restoring the Divine Feminine to Her rightful place in balance and equality with the Divine Masculine, as we now understand that both masculine and feminine are necessary for all creation. As humanity comes together as one family we now see the true value of feminine qualities and propensities. After thousands of years of being put down and treated with worthlessness, true feminine qualities are being restored to their true power. Reminding us that love really is the most powerful force in the universe.

In resurrection the Divine Feminine and Her love-based energies we are restoring balance to the planet. With Her comes the much needed love, compassion, healing, communication, creativity and abundance that is needed to mend and re-create our world.
