Opening Our Perception AND Getting Ready For The Shift!

Standard

Photos by Katelon T. Jeffereys

I walk in the neighborhood where I’m staying, daily.  I love connecting with the various plants and flowers.  I am used to seeing these Bird of Paradise flowers.  There are bushes of these in the backyard where I stay, and all over the neighborhood. I grew up seeing these flowers.  This is how they look…perhaps a little bigger or smaller, but yep, this is a common sight.

So imagine my surprise when I saw this double one with a new flower growing out of the same stalk, but in the opposite direction:

This must be a fluke I thought, some kind of anomaly in this particular bush…as of course, everyone knows that Bird of Paradise flowers only come one flower to a stalk.

So I walked on thinking of this strange aberration I had seen, when…wait…there is another one?!

Throughout my walk that day I noticed more and more of them on other bushes.  The same bushes I had walked by many, many times before. And yet, I’d never seen double Bird of Paradise flowers before…or had I?  They’d obviously been there before but until I actually SAW a double one, I didn’t believe in them, so didn’t see any others.

If you’ve read my blog before, you know that John Ross and I do daily sessions together to assist in bringing forth the shift into the light and shut down the dark Secret Government’s rule of this planet. So the next day after my new discovery, I used this experience and information to assist the team in charge of initiating this shift into the light.  We work at the level of energy, conducting our “sessions” just like a normal meeting, but this meeting happens on an energetic level. Also, we start our “meetings” by setting up sacred circles, calling in many light beings, along with the teams, and make sure the space is protected, governed by Cosmic and Universal Law and with our egos and conscious minds on the back burner.

I explained to the team this experience I had had, and explained the phenomena that “Believing is seeing”, versus the commonly communicated “Seeing is believing”.  When I taught corporate workshops, I referenced a study that Robert Ornstein, a biologist, ex-professor, researcher and author, wrote about in one of the many books of his that I read.  It was a study carried out with college students. The researcher showed college students a deck of cards, asking them to identify how many black hearts were seen and how many red clubs. (I can’t remember the exact card category used but you get the picture).  What was found is that most of the students stated that of course there were zero black hearts and red clubs. Then, the researcher announced that they had created this deck of cards and made some with black hearts and red clubs.  Once this information was given, and accepted, the students were then able to see the black hearts and red clubs and relay the number of each that had been viewed.  Their brain’s neuronal structure had limited their vision in the first pass of looking at the cards. It wasn’t until new information was given, that their eyes could see the actual changes that had been made.

So after explaining all this to the team, in order to assist them in the job they have to do, I led them through an NLP exercise and visualization to open their perceptions.

Then, the next day, I walked by the same bushes as before and saw something even more shocking.

What???  These flowers were not only two blossoms on one stalk, but instead of going in the opposite direction, they were at 90 degree angles to each other?!!!  And then….something beyond that:

Two flowers going in the same direction, one above the other, coming off one stalk?!!!!

I had to expand, and expand and expand my perception to allow for more and more variances.  It was quite surprising to me that not only had I walked by these same bushes over and over and not seen the 2 blossoms/1 stalk variation, but that even after expanding my perception to allow that, I had then gone on to miss more variations of the 2 blossoms/1 stalk phenomena.

We all filter what we see, think and feel through our past experiences and what we’ve been led to believe. And the reason I’m bringing these experiences up is that the world is getting ready to move into a VERY BIG SHIFT!!!!  On March 2, 2017, the shift was complete, at the level of energy. It is making its way into the physical and with it, much of what we’ve been led to believe will be COMPLETELY upended.  Lies will be exposed from all areas…religion, science, education, sexuality, health, government, our place in the universe, our planet, history, finances, on and on, POW!  I believe this will bring tremendous healing in all areas, but in order to have this experience be as peaceful and comfortable as possible, we’ll need to open our perception, we’ll need to open our minds and hearts to hear the real truth,  and feel our connection with Source and each other. I also believe we will have much support with all of this, and we can assist this support by remembering….BELIEVING is Seeing….so I suggest you practice knowing that there is truth beyond what you presently believe, there are experiences beyond what you presently experience.

So stay open, take a deep breath and get ready to be wowed!!!

Staying True In The Midst Of Other’s Perceptions!

Standard

Throughout this almost year long journey I have been mostly staying in other people’s homes. Stepping into someone else’s home involves stepping into different house rules, perceptions, beliefs, needs, expectations and many of these are not overtly expressed. Some of the places I have stayed I have arranged through bartering my healing therapies, dog walking, cleaning, cooking, and organizing. among other skills. I’m not the best negotiator, as my nature is giving and generous, but my communication is clear, so I have done what I could to clearly and cleanly negotiate an arrangement that honored me as well as the other person. What I often found though, is that although I often give much more than is agreed upon, the other person would often change the agreement mid-stream, demanding more or even turning it around to make it appear that I hadn’t given enough?! This was always a shocking experience to me as I thought all had been clear in the beginning and as I stated, I always made sure I gave more than I had agreed upon.

I have always been a flexible, adaptable person, pretty easy going, and focused on being aware of others’ needs so as to keep things going smoothly. This journey though has led me into homes of hosts with almost OCD demands and house rules that even the most astute and dedicated house guest could not begin to adhere to or even decipher; homes of hosts living in their own words “just this side of disgusting” as far as cleanliness; homes of hosts that were controlling, raging alcoholics, noisy, quiet, outgoing, reclusive, vegetarians, meat eaters, and everything in between. Navigating all of these varied situations in addition to the different climates and cities to smaller towns has been quite challenging and stressful. And yet, I’m sure there has been a reason for this journey.

I know without a doubt that I have brought healing to so many people and areas because my recipients have acknowledged this, and I know that it has brought me healing and helped me stand in my power more and taught me to set better boundaries. Along with all this learning though, questions still remain.

I am presently staying with a warm, generous couple who love God, love Jesus, believe strongly in their beliefs and state that they don’t judge. And yet…..when I offer to do the healing work I have done since childhood, the work I was led to through my spiritual experiences with Jesus, my work is deemed unacceptable. When I have questioned why it was deemed acceptable that Jesus could do healing work and yet my work is deemed questionable, perhaps even coming from the dark, it is explained that ONLY Jesus could do healing work?! And yet, these people believe in prayer and manifestations they have received through this prayer, which is invoking God and Jesus. But healing work that is invoking Jesus and God’s energy that flows through all of us, is deemed darkness.

I feel so sad when I run into this belief system, as in my understanding, this very belief keeps people feeling separate from God, separate from that innate energy and light that Jesus spoke of so often and demonstrated. I try to not take it personally, and even have tried to point out to them how in-congruent it feels for them to state how much they like me and respect me and then deem my work misguided at the least and channeling darkness at the worst, but they just toss that off as untrue. I see that it is their closed minds and yes, hearts, that is keeping them from receiving all that I could be sharing with them, and I feel sad. As I know there are so many people in the world that live life this way, and it feels so small to me.

To be in the midst of these situations with others projecting their issues onto me, some people rejecting what I have to give or deeming it not enough, has certainly toughened me up in a way and helped me be more detached. It has also conversely helped me know my worth more. Some of the places I have stayed have been like sailing through the smoothest of waters and others have been like walking past walls of sand paper! I do trust though that each circumstance is leading me closer and closer to the deeper work that Jesus told me I was do when I was nine.

I thought I’d be doing it much sooner than this, and I’m sure I’ve been doing it somewhat throughout my life. However, there seems to have been a lot of preparation that was needed first and this journey has been that walk through the fire that was necessary.

I know that this part of the journey is almost over. I am grateful for all of it…and very much looking forward to landing in a soft spot of my own!

Shifting Your Focus

Standard

Jan. 2012 snow and Tree Lincoln Park

When I first took this picture, I took it because I loved the snow and the contrasting bark on the tree. When I loaded it onto my computer, I realized that it is the perfect example of “focus”. In this picture, you can focus on the tree, or the snow behind it…one is dark, the other light; one is soft, the other rough; one is more uniform, the other is quite varied in texture.

It is the same right now, during this transformation time. We can allow our focus to get stuck looking at the rough spots, the fear, the pain, the uncertainty, afraid to take our eyes off that supposed “reality” as if we didn’t keep our attention, thoughts and worry on it, something awful might happen.

And yet, something awful does happen when we keep our focus on that perceived lack, struggle, limitation, as our energy goes further down in vibration and we attract more thoughts, conditions and situations that reflect and mirror this. And thus the downward spiral continues until we feel powerless, like a victim to circumstances.

But when we shift our focus to solutions, to wondering what else is possible, how it could be different, how in truth we have much in our lives to be grateful for, many things we have succeeded in before, we open the door for our minds/hearts/life to present a new way. We make room for these perceived circumstances to change for the better.

Just by changing our focus.

It is like my post yesterday…you can look at the trees, or the forest, or the forest made up of trees:)

It’s a new moon tomorrow (depending upon where you live), in Aries, the sign of new beginnings, the energy to change. So let’s all focus on new beginnings, great beginnings. We have the power, it is our choice what to focus on, what to create.

Veils of Perception

Standard

Movie_projector

Our perception is like a movie projector. We have these filters, based on what we have been taught to believe about ourselves and our lives, as well as our judgments, thoughts and feelings.  We project these onto what we experience in life and this is what we then call “reality”. We live our life having these expectations about life, based on the past, whether that be our childhood or even other lifetimes.  Since I remembered other lifetimes since childhood, and saw other dimensions and spirits, my “reality” was much different than my parent’s reality and they kept pushing me to let go of what I saw and “face” their version of reality.  All parents seem to do this to their children, along with schools, churches, and society as a whole. The media uses this to sell its products and version of the truth and governments use this to sell its programs and agendas, too.  None of us really ever sees REALITY.   We can certainly change our filters though, through the use of various therapies and introspection, thus creating a new reality.

 

     There is an operating system that our brain has that is called the reticular activating system, which affects arousal and motivation.  How it works, is that whatever we expect, we will find out in the world.  For example, if we are thinking of buying a red sports car, we will begin to see red sports cars all over. They were there before but we didn’t notice them because they weren’t part of our motivation.  If we expect to be rejected, we will find that in various situations throughout our lives.  At the same time, if we decide to start experiencing acceptance, and start looking for that experience, we will find it.

 

     My work consists of several therapies that address perception and expectation, and throughout my long career I have seen amazing results when people release old beliefs and create new ones. Thus, they have created new expectations and then begin to perceive the results of this throughout their experiences.  I also notice evidence of this thing called perception in how differently I sometimes experience the movies I love and respond to and then read a review of the movie and find that the reviewer has experienced it much differently than I did.

 

     I recently shared my July 4th blog post titled “Independence day vs. Interdependence day” with a friend.  His reaction to it was much different than another friend of mine. She emailed me saying the post had brought tears to her eyes and encouraged her to hope for the best for this planet.  But my other friend reacted strongly to the use of the word “Interdependent”.  He felt that many people would react to that word, as to him it brings up “dependence” and he feels that we should never, ever feel a need to be dependent upon anyone.  I felt shocked by this reaction, as I was inspired to write the blog after spending a lovely evening dancing and singing with the Sufi community, as we celebrated this concept called “interdependence”.  I also felt shocked because I really like the concept of interdependence.  In my perception it is a wondrous lifestyle to aspire to.  I agree that it is great to be independent and not co-dependent, but I believe that as we learn to be interdependent, we learn to rely more on Spirit, and each other, seeing each other as all part of the solution in transforming our relationships and our world, rather than perpetuating the separation that pervades so many of our current social/religious/governmental institutions. I believe that if all of us are stepping up to the plate with our particular gifts and skills, then together we can form much stronger families, communities, countries, thus a world of cooperation and support.

 

     I recently read an interview by Berthold Madhukar Thompson, interviewing Andrew Cohen.  This 2002 interview was part of a book that Mr. Thompson wrote about meeting with various spiritual teachers.  Berthold asked Andrew about enlightenment.  Andrew said “The essence of enlightenment is having nothing, knowing nothing, being no one”.  In the same interview, he said, “When the ego is tamed, one cares about the evolution of consciousness as a whole”.  I understand this to mean that when we step out of our own selfish needs, which I feel is the potential trap of independence, we can then surrender to Spirit and thus we are then focused on what is good for the whole.  And this to me is interdependence. 

 

      What do you think about independence, interdependence?
