The Paradox of Awakening – Deb Ozarko

I’m feeling increasingly weary with—and disconnected from—the desecrated world created by homo sapiens. From the rapid demise of iconic animals such as orcas, elephants and giraffes, to the extinction of hundreds (perhaps thousands that we’re unaware of) species every single day, to unfathomable numbers of birds, fish and mammals being slaughtered, hunted and eaten into oblivion as they simultaneously lose habitat from human encroachment and climate disruption; polar bear cubs poisoned by their mothers milk from ubiquitous human pollutants; escalating mental illness expressed through xenophobia, misogyny, speciesism, hate, and violence; the accelerating breakdown of the ocean, the hyperactive Ring of Fire, and most troubling of all, the unprecedented meltdown of the Arctic—the now terminally ill regulator of our global climate. It’s all so dizzying, and I’ve barely scratched the surface.

Come Sit with Me – Guest Post by Sharon Milliman

Dearest one, come and sit with me for a while. Rest your eyes and feel the out pouring of my Grace.

Come Sit with Me for Awhile

preciouslittlesoul_fbcvr

Oh, quiet now and rest, my beautiful little soul and be at peace, for you are on a journey of wonder and delight.

Come now and rest with me on a beautiful star this glorious velvet night.

Come learn, come share, come give of you and my love and light shall pull you through.

There will be no more endless days and painful choices, so turn a deaf ear to the subtlety in the voices.

You need only have ears to hear the truth. The truth is inside of you, and you know the way.

I love you my dearest little one. Just reach out and let me hold your gentle little hand and I will help you to understand.

Oh precious little soul, come sit with me for just a while, come laugh, come sing, and share a smile.

Dear sweet child of mine, listen carefully; hear my words, for they are set upon the wind.

Let Joy and happiness enter in, and you will hear the Angels sing.

Come out of the shadows, and be a part; this is not the end, it’s just the start.

Let my love and Joy come alive inside of your heart.

Stand up and uncover the light you try so hard to hide, for it sparkles like diamonds in the velvet sky.

Walk straight and tall with your head held high. For you know, you are precious in my eyes.

Let the truth conquer all. And the light of your soul will shine bright in the Heavens for all eternity. Do not be afraid for I will shelter you from the storm.

Dearest one, come and sit with me for a while. Rest your eyes and feel the out pouring of my Grace.

Come and sit with me for a while. Come laugh, come sing, come share a smile.

Come and rest with me on a star this glorious velvet night.

What is a Soul Group? : In5D Esoteric, Metaphysical, and Spiritual Database

Did you ever look at someone and even though you never officially met them, you felt as if you’ve known this person? Chances are, this person is part of your soul group as well. The feeling that you’re experiencing is the remembrance of this relationship which is locked into your cellular memory.

by Gregg Prescott, M.S. Editor, In5D.com

What is a Soul Group? Did you ever meet someone and felt as though you knew that person for a long time, even thought this was the first time you ever met?

Did you ever have a connection with someone where you could finish their sentences or seemingly read their mind at will?  Chances are, you’ve known these people many, many lifetimes and they are part of your soul group

So what is a soul group?  A soul group is a group of infinite beings of consciousness who help us learn life lessons.  Many have been with us in previous incarnations and have spent the majority of time with us in the ethereal realms.  While we’re on the “other side”, we make agreements with our soul groups to meet at some juncture in our Earth-bound lives (or any other place of incarnation, it doesn’t have to be Earth).

Before we are born

Before we are born, we choose the experiences that we desire to have in this incarnation and then make soul contracts with people who will help us along the way.  We also choose which parents we will have and the type of lifestyle we will lead.  You might be asking yourself, “Why did I choose THIS lifestyle?”  Because you knew it would give you the best chance to learn so many life lessons and to grow spiritually.  At birth, your personality, character, abilities, talents, strengths and weaknesses are already formed.  Now, it’s just a matter of learning from your weaknesses and using your abilities to the utmost capacity.

In the near future, you will meet people at the most opportune times in your life, and not by coincidence.  These people are part of your soul group who will help you with your life lessons.

As above, so below

Who you are has a lot to do with the day, date and time you incarnated here on Earth, due to the specific planetary alignments at the time of your birth.  The alignment of specific planetary positions in the houses will tell you what specific type of destiny you have chosen for this incarnation.  It can also tell you the origin of your lineage.  For example, if a person has numerous planetary birth alignments within the 25 to 27 degree range, then it is likely that this person has a Pleiadianlineage.  To find out your specific alignments, you can check out this free birth chart reading here.

You can have many soul groups that include literally millions of people!  I had a star chart reading performed by Lavendar who revealed many interesting things about me. [see original post for the reading]

Your Higher Self

Our higher selves also play an interactive role in the arrangement and meeting between two or more souls.  Consider the fact that your higher self is multidimensional and can communicate with other higher selves at any given time.

Don’t I Know You?

Did you ever look at someone and even though you never officially met them, you felt as if you’ve known this person?  Chances are, this person is part of your soul group as well.  The feeling that you’re experiencing is the remembrance of this relationship which is locked into your cellular memory.  This is the point where both higher selves are in bliss and that feeling is relayed between these two people as familiarity or in simpler terms, “Do I know you from somewhere?”

The Wheel of Karma

Have you found yourself being attracted to a specific type of personality?  While most of the time, this is a wonderful relationship, but some of the lessons we need to learn in this incarnation involve karma.

For example, if you are in an abusive relationship, then it’s quite possible that YOU were the abuser in a previous lifetime and you made a soul contract with your spouse to come back as the opposite sex, not only to experience what the other person was feeling, but to resolve the karmic debt.  The easiest way to resolve this debt is to FORGIVE, but be sure to understand the lesson that was presented before you.

Multidimensional Relationships

As a multidimensional being on the other side, you made thousands upon thousands of contracts to meet specific people at specific times in your life.  In the third dimensional reality, it’s difficult to comprehend the numerous amounts of contracts that we’ve made but when you’re multidimensional, it’s quite easy to do.

Some of these relationships will never manifest in this incarnation due to free will.

Twin Flames

Other relationships may involve seeking your twin flame, who may or may not be here in this incarnation.  A twin flame is literally the other half of your soul that makes you whole, yet at the same time, each twin flame is a complete soul.  They form a complete balance of the male and female energies.  Your previous relationships were also soul contracts to help you prepare to be with your twin flame.  When you meet your twin flame, you’ll know it immediately.

Some twin flames aren’t here in this incarnation.  That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get married or have children because your twin flame (in the ethereal realms) wants you to experience everything that can bring you joy and happiness in this incarnation, as well as to learn as many life lessons to help your spiritual growth.  He or she is still part of your soul group but decided not to join you in this incarnation.  Don’t take it personally!  They’re still with you in heart and in spirit.

It’s also important to remember that some twin flames remain on the other side to provide you with help and spiritual guidance.  Some souls decided to come here without them because they “heard the call” and they knew they were needed here in this incarnation.  Please keep in mind that not everyone from your soul group will incarnate at the same time!

Night Owls Unite!

imageDefinitely a Night Owl

Without a question, I am a night owl. I can stay up until the “middle of the night”…but getting up is another story altogether!

What about you?

Question from the Daily Post: Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?

I Didn’t Dream This, Did I? | Richard Bach

“Of course you can follow,” they said, “you will when you learn to do it. You’re a young culture, and if you don’t blow your beautiful planet into tiny little pieces, you’ll learn to do a lot more than fifth dimension travel.

So before I went to sleep, I relaxed my body, relaxed my mind, felt free of the chains of this world. Body asleep, mind alert, I imagined moving to where she had said to be.

There they were. I don’t remember their faces, just the same as a Near Death Experience – we see others, but most often not clearly.   Instead of thinking that they would be doing something with me, I asked them a few questions: “Why are you all here on our planet? What do you want from us?”

They didn’t use words, which is common through all the books about them I’ve read, and about spirits. They use telepathy which I hear as ideas in good English. “We’re here because we’re your family!”

I have a small recognition of family, as we’re a kind of family, here on this website. But the family includes angels and guides and ETs from light-years away? That was a startlement, and it made perfect sense the second I heard it. It still makes sense to me now. I love the idea of an exoplanetary family.

“If you’re spiritual beings, though,” I said, “why do the ETs use spaceships and UFOs, to reach us? Why do you appear and disappear in some fifth dimension, where we can’t follow?”

“Of course you can follow,” they said, “you will when you learn to do it. You’re a young culture, and if you don’t blow your beautiful planet into tiny little pieces, you’ll learn to do a lot more than fifth dimension travel.

How Earth looks from outer space – EarthSky

Astronomy Essentials

If you were looking with the eye alone, how far away in space would our planet Earth still be visible?

Here is Earth from 900 million miles away, from the vantage point of the rings of Saturn. Image via the Cassini spacecraft, which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004.

This image was acquired by Cassini on July 19, 2013. How far away from Earth can we be, to see it still with our own eyes? To answer this question, you have to take into account how brightly Earth reflects sunlight. And the sun itself is an important factor. As seen from any great distance, Earth appears right next to the sun; from a great distance, the glare of our local star would make Earth difficult or impossible to see. But spacecraft exploring our solar system have given us marvelous views of Earth.

So imagine blasting off and being about 300 kilometers – about 200 miles – above Earth’s surface. That’s the height at which the International Space Station (ISS) orbits. The surface of the Earth looms large in the window of ISS. In the daytime, you can clearly see major landforms. At night, you see the lights of Earth’s cities.

The Norse Völva: Wild Women in Myth & Lore — Rune Journeys

The Norse Völva was essentially a medicine woman during the first centuries of the Viking Age and is found among the Germanic Tribes.   She relayed the ancient stories or myths, as found in The Voluspá (Prophecy of the Völva) in the Poetic Edda.  She practiced seiðr, which included prophetic arts and trance journeys, held a place outside the boundaries of the usual community structure and was highly respected.  In the Saga of Erik the Red, it is related how the entire hall was cleaned and prepared in anticipation of the visit from the Völva.  

When she arrived, she is seated at the head, upon a prepared pillow, near the lord and lady of the community.   The term völva means ‘staff’ or ‘wand’ carrier, and many burials of these women contain the wooden or iron staffs that they carried as symbols of their profession, and professionals they were, being paid highly and buried richly.
