June 2003: Painted into a Corner

Updated June 5, 2003


Interesting times, indeed.... The month of May felt like traveling through a birth canal. Being squished and overextended, sometimes overwhelmed, with great pressure all around us. Couldn't see where we were going, but definitely could feel that we were being propelled somewhere new.

The Repositioning Process continues to accelerate. This has been happening in several stages. Here's the Timetable:

Intense Internal Sorting Out and Transformation
All year long, we've been getting knocked off our old matrix. Sometimes this has happened through head injuries and car accidents. These knocks have caused us to be more honest and true than ever before. We've been getting really clear with who we really are and learning what still resonates with us. We've been letting go of many elements of our lives, such as people, jobs, activities, which don't bring joy or are no longer aligned with our core beings.

And we've been thinking, thinking, thinking-- our minds going at hyperspeed while sorting and resorting through our internal memory banks like never before. Thinking, clearing out, moving stuff around, thinking, re-examining, letting go. With all this overcharged mental activity, it's impossible to think things out in a logical manner; there's simply too much to do.

This is an exciting time of discovery; discovering what we now want and discarding what we no longer want. Sometimes, we go towards what we thought we wanted only to find that it no longer has meaning to us.

Releasing Old Preferences
An important part of being receptive to unexpected, new directions is letting go of old preferences. Being preference free opens us up to larger breakthroughs since we don't have to inhabit such a rigid old matrix as before.

To let go of old preferences, we need to free ourselves from our previous likes and dislikes and start totally fresh. One simple way we can do this is to start trying some foods which we've never eaten before or which we previously disliked. And it's all right if we still don't like them, but at least we were open to giving them a new chance. Or we can go shopping and try on some clothes totally out of the scope of what we'd normally be attracted to. Step outside your old box and experiment. The results may surprise you.

Letting go of old preferences is an important part of reclaiming our Personal Freedom. It's extremely liberating. As we unpin ourselves from our past preferences, we are freed to follow the unexpected promptings into surprising directions that will take us to our new positionings.

How Does It Feel?
Remember the classic ancient Egyptian initiation with Thoth who carries a balance scale on which he weighs our heart with a feather? If our hearts are true, they will be lighter than a feather and we pass the test. Well, now is the time when we need to weigh everything on that scale. We can put every element of our lives on Thoth's scale and see how they balance with our heart.

Try it with your relationships, jobs, activities, aspirations, etc. and see how they balance with your heart. If these elements are heavy and joyless, if they've become drudgery or you're just "going through the motions" with them, then they will drag the scale downwards. When that happens, we know that it's time for them to transform.

We really don't need to carry around the heavy weight of the past with us anymore. It's like those bags of sand on a hot air balloon. If we want to ascend to a new level, we need to dump some of that heaviness overboard.

Getting Tossed About in the Tsunamis of Change
The Winds of Change have stirred up the waves creating huge Tsunamis of Change. Once we enter the Tsunami Zone, there's no turning back. Actually, there's no turning in any chosen direction for we've lost any semblance of control. The only way to ride these waves is to totally surrender and enjoy the wild, unpredictable ride.

Throughout this time, we are experiencing surprising turns of events. Often something will happen that we tend to judge as not being positive. If we can let go of the judgment factor, we will discover that these situations are simply rerouting opportunities which are leading us into new directions. Ones which we will really like!

Decisions, Decisions, What to Do?
During the past few months, we have been faced with making important decisions which we really haven't felt qualified to make. We just don't have all the needed information to make a well thought out decision. Besides that, our minds are too busy thinking, thinking about everything to focus on one single element. In spite of our apparent unreadiness to make these decisions, they are being forced upon us. So we leap and grab at an unformed viewpoint, make our decision and sometimes end up changing it a few weeks later. Even if we hold to our decision, the outcome is unknown until the last minute when we are finally catapulted into the results of our action.

Most of the decisions which we are being forced to make right now are taking us way out of our comfort zones. They are not based on practicality or logic and throw us deeper into the unknown. In spite of the vast uncertainty which this brings up, we need to trust our intuition and allow ourselves to be pushed into our new positions.

Painting Ourselves into a Corner
All year long, we've been painting ourselves into a corner. Once we get into the corner, surrounded by wet paint, we realize that we cannot go back the way we came. The old way of doing things has come to an end. Many of our previous goals no longer matter. Much of what we do, such as our activities and careers have become joyless and heavy. Our old road has come to an obvious end.

By painting ourselves into the corner, we've created a Do or Die situation. It's Disaster or Breakthrough Time. We cannot go backwards since the old road is now covered with wet paint and cannot take us back to where we used to be. (Not that we would really want to go back there.) And it's important to remember that we put ourselves into this untenable position; we painted ourselves here, just so we would be forced to leap.

Now that we're lodged in the corner with wet paint all around us, the only way out is to expand the walls or create a new opening. Otherwise, we move into the Disaster Mode in which everything falls apart. Our only alternative to disaster is to look for something new, to search in unexpected directions to find the elements which make us smile and stir up our sense of creativity. It's the time to take wild chances and leap out of the box! Even with the destination unknown.

Relocating, Repositioning Continues
During the months of June, July and August, many of us will be experiencing massive changes in our lives. Many of us will be moving to new physical locations, either going directly to our new positionings or to temporary places where we will perch for a few months before making our big leap.

Our careers are being strongly affected as well. It's time to let go of the jobs which don't feed our creativity and find or create new careers. Often, these new career paths will be in unanticipated directions. It's a good time to ask ourselves what we'd REALLY like to do. And then to take the necessary steps to get there. And it's a great time to prepare to start our own business or creative endeavor.

Relationships will also be greatly affected by this repositioning process. We'll be constantly sifting through the people in our lives and choosing those with integrity and true hearts. If we don't, then it will soon be a disaster working with them and we'll learn that we need to be with those who share our true values.

As we emerge from our birth canal into the light of a very new day and extremely new circumstances, we will discover that we have gained a new confidence in ourselves. Whenever we are comfortable with ourselves and with who we are, things will go smoothly.

In a few months, we will be entering a period of great creativity when we can finally express the new beings we're in the process of birthing through new forms of creative expression. In June we will receive many promptings as to this new direction and will finally be taking some clear, decisive steps into our new positionings.

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!
