...the picture above happened during a really really big total eclipse, about 20 years ago. On my altar to represent myself, among other artifacts (pun intended) was this sculpture, bought in a country pottery in England, of a woman meditating with a purple crystal belly. Somewhere within 24 hours of this eclipse 2 things happened:
- something fell off the wall above the altar and cut her head off cleanly (I was there)
- I found myself in a very scary hostage-type situation in Lake County, herded into a Chevys restaurant by police because there were escaped convicts with guns in the area.
Well, what I’m sayin’ is that if the eclipse is about anything, it’s about me: the me reading this as well as the one writing. It’s easy and fun to speculate that it’s all going to land on the head of some guy out there with a fake tan and yellow hair, (this article is interesting). But what if it’s all about you? What if you (I will use that word to include me) are the one that is going to get eclipsed? What if it’s your shadow that is going to finally receive attention? You may think that you’ve already looked at your shadow (roll on the floor laughing—there’s more, folks!). And you may even think you’ve gotten beyond it—especially if you have temporarily managed to organize your reality into some kind of comfort zone. But Life is notoriously ruthless and not into comfort when it comes to waking souls up—at least, if you have a life purpose of true spiritual awakening. If you don’t, read no further, this isn’t for you...
Someone said: “God doesn’t come to fix your dream, but to break it.” We know, or sense, that something unusual is happening on earth. If you’re not too fixated on reacting to the outer events, you may notice that there is some kind of frequency shift happening in consciousness. It’s real. This is a time unlike any other. People are calling this shift all kinds of names, but I see and sense things in terms of waves of energy and information. This shift is more like a tsunami than a ripple, and life will never be the same on this planet. We can either ride this wave or be wiped out by it. And that is a good thing. It means that our illusory sense of ourselves, and all the old conditioning that we have amassed for centuries—lifetimes!—into a basket of preferences, resentments, fears and habitual neurological pathways that we call our “self” is going to be emptied out. The hard way or the easy way.
Events like the coming eclipse can be used as portals for voluntary surrender. Death is inevitable, but death of the false self is to some extent a matter of free will. Can you summon the courage to let go of what you think is reality, and allow yourself to be shifted gracefully into new levels of your divine potential? What you really are is not, of course, your body, your thoughts and memories, your social or financial status, your looks, nor even your special relationships.
What is voluntary surrender? What works for me is to melt my particle-self into waves. Know that the universe is made entirely of waves... waves of what? Well, they diversify into different frequencies from electro-magnetism to virtual thought-waves within the quantum field. Your soul is one of these waves (soulwave!) traveling through time and space imagining worlds in order to grow and learn. And the good news is that all the waves are made of one consciousness and occur within an infinite ocean that is completely supportive and is a Love greater than anything we can imagine. If we can learn to let go into the wave-version of reality it may at first seem like dying, but is actually a coming alive into complete safety and sovereignty where you are really only subject to one influence: Love.
Yes, really. This is actually true. What seems to be true—the life of dangers and threats as we perceive them from the particle-self, is imagined. I was at the Near Death Experiencer Conference in Denver last weekend with a friend, and was again reminded by multiple voices that when we die we meet a Love Beyond Imagining, and realize that It never left us. The trick is to practice accessing this oceanic field of Love while in the body!
(That’s what iWAVE, my work, is all about: the practical and personal application of these higher truths into your flesh and blood experience of life in the body. Private session slots are available).
Let’s get eclipsed into Love!
