August 2003: Shifting Our Matrix

Updated August 1, 2003


July's Tsunamis of Change were intense and chaotic. Although the month was laced with breakthroughs, the Big Final Breakthrough into our new positionings remained elusive.

During the month of August, the intensity is going to increase, stretching us even further beyond the parameters of our comfort zones. It going to take tremendous courage and trust for us to see it through. Sometimes, it will be easy to contemplate giving up, but we can't. There's no going backwards. We've gone too far, and although it may not currently appear so, a positive outcome is assured.

All year long, we've talked about moving to a new octave of being. About undergoing a repositioning process. About reclaiming our Personal Freedom. About shifting the very matrix of our beings. And this is exactly what we are experiencing.

Some of us are in the thick of it, being thoroughly dismantled, while others are surfing smoothly. This disparity of experiences has nothing to do with personal evolution or individual karma. It's just a condition of balance which requires that some of us always remain in calmer waters to hold the beam for the ones of us being slammed about in the Tsunamis of Change. If we all were thrust in the intensity at the same time, we probably wouldn't make it through.

If you are having an easy time of it, please don't go into judgment about those who aren't. We are all doing this together as One Being. The ones of us who are being thrown about in the intensity are clearing a path for all of us into the new octave. (Think of us out in a dense, very dangerous jungle, clearing a path with a small machete.) The rest of us are holding the space of the One Heart, and I hope, encouraging us through. This is part of the dynamic of Mutual Support which is becoming an essential component of our further evolution.

We are in a critical time where the challenges are many. Much of this Surf Report is directed towards those who are currently being challenged to the core.

Here are a few of the key elements we are experiencing:


Up until a few months ago, we had our lives fairly together. Then we started being slammed by the Tsunamis of Change. All our established order, all our efficient ways of functioning, all our semblance of comfort and security, were fragmented into millions of pieces in an instant. Just picture it: It's like a house with everything in the right place and all our nice, established patterns of doing things, getting hit by a gigantic wave. The house breaks apart, possessions go flying off in all directions, and we're left to continue on with our life.

Now, there's no way to put the old house back together, even if we wanted to, which most of us don't. And even if we could remember how we used to do things, everything has been so profoundly rearranged (and a lot of stuff we can't even find!), that returning to the old patterns is an impossibility.

And it's not even like the tsunami has moved us into a new dwelling. More likely, we've found ourselves deposited onto the shore of a new land, and we're lying there gasping for air, trying to get the seaweed out of our matted hair and fashion a rough shelter out of driftwood or whatever else is available in our immediate environment. Heck, we're lucky to be alive!

Even here, it's not a matter of building any sort of permanent shelter. We're not yet in our right place. We're closer than before, but we're just in a temporary situation. Around us are the flying fragments of our life, swirling around up in the air, most of them tantalizingly just out of reach. And try as we may to grab them, it's not yet time for them to land.

Which leads us to REPOSITIONING:

Repositioning has to do with shifting our Matrix. If you see each of us as a beautiful mandala, then what is happening right now is that the mandala of our being is spinning around and as it does, all the colors and objects and shapes and symbols on it start spinning around so fast that it all becomes a blur. Then these blurry elements of our mandalas detach themselves from the canvas and are airborne. As these fragments fly around in the general direction of the now blank canvas, they are being dramatically transformed. What may have been a separate blue and a separate yellow are merging and forming a vibrant new green. What may have been two triangles might be joining together to create a diamond.

"Great!" we say, "This is what we are becoming. Finally, some clear information! Let's see what the new pattern is." We are so hungry for a clue, for some sort of outer confirmation of our inner intuition. And yet when we look at it, much of our new mandala is still a blur. Once in awhile, we can make out a shape or an object, (and it's so exciting and comforting to see something discernible there!), but then the mandala continues to spin and the shape disappears. This gives us the Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Backwards feeling. We're walking towards that Open Doorway and we know the lasting breakthrough is near, but it remains ever elusive, just out of reach.

As if living in a state of heightened intensity and uncertainty, mixed with a chaotic disarray isn't enough to cope with, there's the element of PERSONAL FREEDOM to deal with.

PERSONAL FREEDOM sounds good as a concept. It something which most of us would like to achieve. It's just that the scope of it is far greater than we had imagined. It's not just a superficial letting go. Rather, it's a core level releasing of all that has kept us from being real and true.

This element of PERSONAL FREEDOM is causing us to dredge down into the very fibers and cells of our beings and clear out the layers of old emotional residue of the past. Much of our emotional residue has been stuffed inside us, much like putting a huge pile of garbage into a small container. Rather than emptying it out, we constantly push it down to make room for more. Until finally, it's so compacted and stuffed inside that it doesn't come out very easily.

This is why many of us are having accidents or health conditions flare up. It's to help us loosen and remove our emotional residue. We need to pay close attention to the areas which are affected and see what memories, prior experiences or feelings that we have stuffed there. Look at the core issues connected with the affected part of your body and release whatever you can.

This is a time when many emotions are coming up. We are experiencing so many emotions that there's no time to hold onto any of them. Just feel them and let go. And don't worry if your emotions are all over the map. That's just how it is right now. We are clearing up and righting many wrongs of the past and letting go of depositories of pain stored in our cells.

Another thing which is happening to our emotions is the dissolving of those protective walls that we have created in the past. It's time for us to learn how to love and be loved with our full beings. And there's really no need to maintain any barriers to embodying the full extent of our love. Love will help move us through the intensity.

Everything that we are currently experiencing is part of the process of SHIFTING OUR MATRIX. It's creating our new mandala. It's something that we've worked hard to be able to do. It's just that it's a lot harder and more challenging than we thought it would be. It's more all-encompassing. It's infinitely vaster. It's off-the-map vaster. It's touching every element of our beings and affecting every element of our lives. It's huge and intense and often not very much fun. But it's what we have to do to get to the next level.

Perhaps some of us can get there in an easier way, but for most of us, the journey is going to take us right through the heart of the fire. The important thing to remember is that we're not on this journey alone. We're doing it together as One.

Another important thing to remember is that we are all standing in front of an enormous OPEN DOORWAY. It's right in front of us, shimmering away, so close and yet so far.... If you can't yet see it, perhaps you can feel it. The resonance it sends forth gives us that underlying sense of CERTAINTY that we carry deep inside as we travel through the shifting, surface layers of uncertainty which permeate almost everything. We need to hold onto that deep inner CERTAINTY as we move through the shifting uncertainty. This resonance of CERTAINTY will guide us towards the OPEN DOORWAY and finally, through..... to the other side.

We are in a time of SACRED PAUSE. What this means is that our passage through the OPEN DOORWAY is assured. We stand at the threshold of our new lives. It is during the time of the SACRED PAUSE in which we are called to comb through our beings, through all the elements of our lives, through all our past experiences, through our accumulated emotional residue, to clear out and transform what is no longer appropriate to go through the doorway with us.

August will be an intense and challenging month full of activity, but it will create the situations that move us through into our new positionings. We will experience major breakthroughs....

Keep focused on the vaster picture of what is really at play. Feel your emotions, but try not to become overwhelmed by them. BE LIKE WATER. Go with the flow. If the obstacles pile up in front of you, just keep flowing until you've flowed around them or over them. Find a few people with whom you can share this journey. Mutual support is extremely helpful right now. You might also find it helpful to reread all of this year's Surf Reports as there is an underlying theme throughout them.

And most importantly, keep remembering that we are very close to being repositioned to new situations that will be much truer to our core beings. Comfort is coming. Creativity is coming. We are going to really like what awaits us on the other side of the doorway.

This is one powerful birth and we are going through it together.....

We can choose to let go of fear and replace it with Oneness.
Fear is an excretion of duality and separation. When we consciously inhabit our One Being, we are living in the Greater Reality where fear cannot exist.

We don't need to compromise our Integrity.
Our integrity is one of the foundation stones of our beings. If it's full of holes or cracks, then everything which is built on top of it is flawed. It's essential that we continue to strengthen and refine our integrity.

Don't Take Things Personally!
Please remember that many of us are experiencing similar things. It's not just happening to you. These are undeniably strange times. We must all constantly LOOK LARGER and see what is really going on.

Dive Deep & Discover Who You Are:
This is the time to get back in touch with our real Selves. To ask ourselves many questions such as, "Who am I?", "What makes me happy?" "What work do I really want to be doing?" & "How can I create the kind of life that I really want?"

Let Go & Become Freer:
Let go of all unnecessary activities, friendships and clutter. Strip everything down to what really resonates with your Core Being. Each time that we release something which has become weighty, we become lighter and freer.

Stay Positive By Remembering WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON:
We don't need to fear change. Yes, it is powerful and often totally beyond our control. Try to see change as exciting and as a renewal. When our old foundations crumble, it's time to build new ones.

Watch Out For Occasional Sinkholes :
Sinkholes are places where the ground suddenly sinks underneath our feet. Without warning, we find ourselves in a deep pit. When this happens, it's easy to get discouraged and depressed. However, this condition is only temporary. Be like water and keep your love flowing. Soon the sinkhole will fill up and you will be released.

Find Effective Ways To Deal With Stress:
When things get intense around us, it's easy to lose it and become stressed out. It's important that we find ways to deal with stress: Try hot baths, exercise, long walks, meditation, swimming, dancing, massage, gardening, spending the day in bed. Whatever it takes. Just be aware when your stress levels are rising and take immediate action.

Don't Buy Into Duality:
There are no "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys". There are no "Good Countries" & "Bad Countries". There are no "Good Religions" & "Bad Religions". There is only the One!

Continually Look Beyond Outer Appearances:
Nothing is as it appears to be. Step out of any residue of fear or anger and take a good, clear look at what is really happening. Don't take anyone's word on what is happening. Don't blindly follow authority figures. Figure it out for yourself from a place of vastness and all encompassing Love.

Strengthen Your Compassion:
There is simply not enough compassion on the Earth at this time. Many of us are feeling assaulted by the energies of anger and fear. It's a challenging time with duality running amok. This is exactly when compassion is most needed. Consciously become an embodiment of compassion. Be like the Sun which has no personal favorites and extend your compassion to all things equally.

Rerouting Opportunities Abound:
Whenever there are blockages or things don't happen quite as you would like them to, simply understand that things are being rerouted to bring them into alignment with the state of RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE.

When New Doorways Open, Leap!... Then Leap Again:
There is no time to sit and ponder whether we should take these new opportunities which are being presented to us. If it feels right, do it. Leap! And then Leap Again!

Don't Try To Hold On To The Elements Which Are Going Out Of Our Lives:
Many people and situations are going to be leaving our lives. The resonance is shifting dramatically, making this a natural occurrence. Let go gracefully and wish them well.

Emptiness Is Good:
If you feel empty, embrace that feeling. It's a good thing and something which all of us experience when huge chunks of our old ways of being and doing things leaves our lives. This is a pregnant emptiness, a sacred place where we await the birth of the New.

Spend Time Each Day Embodying Your Vastness, Showering The Earth And All Its Inhabitants With Love:

Inhabit Our One Being At All Times:
As we consciously live in our One being, we nourish and strengthen the resonance of Oneness throughout the world.


We are creating the templates for our future now!

Enjoy this wild ride into the New.

Let's fearlessly love with our whole beings!

Be constantly open to the unexpected!

BE REAL, no matter what!
