World Awakening Meditation

World Awakening Meditation

I invite you to join me today in this meditation to help raise the vibration of mass consciousness.

And to do this we first have to understand what mass consciousness is and it’s when enough of the collective on our planet comes together in a thought that we feel it profoundly - effecting and impacting all humanity.

As light bears, light workers, or whatever you may call yourself, we understand that when enough people join in mass consciousness, and join in the light, that the entire vibration on the planet will rise and our experiences will be much better.

And that’s so important, especially now, because we’re counting on many different realities. But there’s no fear about that because we know that the light is much stronger than the darkness.

So at this point on our planet about 3% of the population are awake, which means we remember who we are, the divinity in each one of us, magnificence. In order to fully move into the light on the planet we don’t need 51% of the people to be awake, we simply need 10%. That’s how strong the light is.

So as we meditate and we’re holding the space for this mass consciousness to rise up into the light to remember who they are - to be fully awake to their divinity - we just need 7% more.

So I’m inviting you to join me today in a meditation to help raise the mass consciousness of the planet.

And as we’re transforming each experience into a greater vibration of light by either appreciating what we have or asking for the improvement of this planet, we’re having a profound impact on the collective experience of all. And what I mean by this is we’re simply going to be improving our own experiences, but at the same time, we’re improving the experiences of the collective of all of us.

So one way for us to experience this is to go into meditation knowing that there are many others on the planet that are there with us - we may not see them in the physical, but they are meditating and praying.

As in all dimensions of light, we have beings that are praying with us at this point, and knowing that the more we are radiating this energy outward into the world, the better not only our reality becomes, but the reality of all becomes.

If you would like to experience this, and help the collective on the planet, please join me in this meditation:

And I just invite you to begin my breathing in deeply, and releasing.

Breathing in deeply, and releasing.

And as we do that, we feel our energy shifting from our intellectual center in our brain to our heart-mind.

And while we do this, we may feel a warmth in your heart area, you may feel an expansion, and this is all appropriate. You will open your heart center as much as you are prepared to, as much as you are ready for, because it’s from this heart, from love, that the healing comes.

And as you feel that heart expansion, I just invite you to imagine a golden warm light expanding, not just in your heart center, but throughout your body and into the room that you’re sitting in and beyond.

And as you do this, you may feel a presence around you - the presence of your angels and your guides, the presence of other beings of light, the presence of all those who are praying and meditating with you right now on this planet. And we say right now and very present because we know that the dimension that we’re holding this in is not in linear time - so it’s always right now.

So just imagine coming from above a pearl, a golden pearlescent light.

It’s beginning and starting with your crown chakra and moving down into your body.

It’s filling your entire body. Every cell in your body is being filled with this light.

It’s expanding into your aura and into the seven light bodies that we have, through our emotional center, through our astral self, every aspect that we have. That light is just growing and expanding.

You may feel parts of your body tingle from it. And we just allow it to flow through us.

And as we do we understand that that light energy is also coming up from the earth from Gaia and into our feet and the energy is going back into Gaia. We are giving and receiving and as it comes down through our crown chakra, we are sending it back out - giving and receiving.

As above, so below.

And as it expands, we feel it filling the room around us, filling the building that we’re in. If we’re outside, it’s going beyond us into nature. Walls mean nothing with this as this light expands from wherever you are - it fills that area and we can feel it expanding into the world and around the planet.

As we move into the silence, we let that expansion occur and we hold it with intent - that this is the light healing the world.

~ * * * * ~

I just invite you to come back into your space with full awareness, not cutting off those energies because they stay there and they are healing.

We invite you to start your day with this or before you go to sleep. And every time you do, know that you are raising the vibrational frequencies on this planet when this will transform our world into heaven on earth.

Thank you Dear One for this energy that you share so freely.

Together as light workers, we understand that we are the light of the world. And as we do this, we freely share our energy and our love with the planet - all those beautiful souls. And we will see transformation sooner rather than later on Gaia and for this we are so grateful.

So grateful to awaken to the energies, to the abilities, to the magnificence of what was meant when it was said in the scriptures that we are created in the image and likeness of God. As children, or sparks, or expressions of God - however you identify with these writings. We are just beginning to understand what that truly means.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for assisting Gaia and I look forward to looking with you on many, many more meditations.

And so it is.

Perfection is Not the Criteria

Perfection is Not the Criteria

I’ve been a pastor for over eight years and during that time I have had many people come to see me to discuss problems they are having in their lives. The issues often return to the same theme. They feel like a failure because they are not perfect, or they are afraid of being seen by others as less than perfect. No matter how you look at any situation, it’s a lot of pressure to put on a person. So, I decided to explore this theme of perfectionism at last Sunday’s service and was surprised at what I found.

I started by researching the word perfect in my favorite textbook, the Bible. The Gospel of Matthew 5:48 immediately came up, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” What?!? This stopped me in my tracks. Had Jesus really said to only accept perfection in myself? I knew that I had three choices other than taking it literally as it was written.

The first thing I could do, and the easiest, would be to pick another verse about perfection that would fit in better with my talk. Another option was to go straight to the metaphysical interpretation of it, leaving the literal behind. Or I could let the research lead me where it would, allowing the talk to develop from what I learned instead of from what I wanted. I decided to the let the research lead me on this journey and it proved to be fascinating.

I began by thinking about how the writer might have written this during Jesus’ time. We’re not sure who the author of Matthew was, or who any of the writers of any of the Gospels are, but we do know they were originally written in Greek. Like any good Bible Nerd, I did some research on the passage and found a lot of information. (Yes, I Googled it.) First and foremost, I found out that the Greek word for perfect in the New Testament is teleios and that it has a different meaning than what we give it in the English language. The word in Greek means ‘complete.’ After digging a little deeper about where the author from the Gospel of Mark would have gotten the word, I found it in the Hebrew language. The word for perfect in Hebrew would have been tannin, which means ‘whole, sound, mature, helpful and having integrity.’

At that point I looked at the original scripture again, “Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect,” and knew that this talk was going to come out with the same premise I had originally intended, but get there in a very different way. With my new information, the meaning of the verse changed from “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect,” to read, “Be whole, complete, and mature in integrity in your love of others.”

That is very different from instructing us to be perfect. Instead we are to focus on our wholeness and love for others. I think Jesus would have taken it a step further to say to accept, even love, the imperfections in ourselves. Because the Truth is there is only love and wholeness anyway.

What dreams have you not fulfilled because you felt there were less than perfect conditions? Or what negative tapes are playing in your head about yourself that have held you back? It’s time to let them go and embrace what you may see as imperfection. Don’t let negative thoughts hold you back from accomplishing your dreams, or damage your relationships, or destroy your happiness. You deserve so much more. You deserve prosperity, health, joy, peace, and love.

For this week, let’s shake off those negative thoughts and shine your light brilliantly! It’s what you're made to do.

Please join us next Sunday at Unity Radiant Light at 10:30AM to explore “Just Say Yes and Do It” with Cherie Ruffo, Spiritual Leader. Unity Radiant Light is at 155 Douglas Avenue, Providence, Rhode Island. You can find more information about Unity Radiant Light at www.unityradiantlight.org, Facebook or meetup.com.

Notes for Steps to Ascension Three: Activating the Eight Chakra & More

Activating the Eight Chakra

As we continue our journey into the Higher Dimensions of Light, we are beginning the activation of the eighth and the 8.5 chakras today. The eighth chakra is directly over the crown chakra and holds the last of human karmic information. You can release that today. The 8.5 chakra is behind our head near the soft spot above the base of the skull. It operates half in the fourth dimension and half in the fifth dimension: It is our bridge to the fifth dimension.

Supplement of the Week

Himalayan Salt Sole is a simple and easy-to-make addition to your repertoire. Because it requires only Himalayan salt, water, and a jar - this health treatment is accessible and affordable for everyone. Since discovering sole, I start my day with a teaspoon of this powerfully detoxing and rejuvenating elixir.

Sole is water fully saturated with unrefined salt. When Himalayan salt dissolves in water, it results in a concentrated, electrically charged matrix of the 84 trace minerals in the salt. The ionic salt and trace minerals nourish each cell in your body.

Benefits of Himalayan Salt Sole: 

  1. By balancing the systemic pH, it detoxifies your body.
  2. By providing trace minerals, it improves hydration.
  3. More minerals and a hydrated body can reduce muscle cramps.
  4. Himalayan salt sole helps balance blood sugar.
  5. No matter what hormonal issues you face, it can support hormone balance.
  6. By providing unrefined, mineral-rich salt in an ionic solution, you can help balance blood pressure.
  7. By supporting blood sugar and hormone balance, sleep is improved.
  8. Himalayan salt sole is a powerful antihistamine.
  9. By balancing hormones and improving energy, weight loss is supported.
  10. Himalayan salt sole supports thyroid and adrenal function.

How to Make Himalayan Salt Sole:

  1. Fill a glass jar a quarter of the way with Himalayan Salt (or Real Salt or Celtic Sea Salt), either ground or in chunks. Do not use a metal container, as it will oxidize.
  2. Fill the jar the rest of the way with filtered water.
  3. Cover and shake. Don't forget, the cover can't be metal either!
  4. Let it sit overnight.
  5. In the morning, you should find some undissolved salt in the jar. This is good, it means the water is fully saturated. Add more salt if needed.
  6. To take, mix 1 tsp. sole into some room temperature water or other beverage upon waking. I like to mix it into protein shakes. Remember to never use metal utensils with your sole!
  7. When your jar runs low, keep refilling it with salt and filtered water. By making sure there is always undissolved salt in your elixir, your sole can last indefinitely.

I purchase my Himalayan Salt chunks from It's My Health in Cumberland, RI. Each box of high-quality salts is $27 and lasts about two years (or it would if I didn't give so much away!).

Comparative Reading of the Week

The Lion's Gate 2016 and the "Master" Cycle that Commences: The Opening of the Seventh Dimension on EarthArchangel Michael channeled through Celia Fenn July 22, 2016

"Beloved family of Light, when you began this year of 2016, we did say to you, with much love, that 2016 would be a challenging year, and that you would need to embody your Mastery in a powerful way. As the Lion's Gate of 2016 approaches, you now prepare yourself for a New Beginning and to initiate your first major cycle of creation as an embodied Master and Alchemist.
What does this mean? It means that you will take what is of low frequency and you will transform it and turn it into Golden Light! Even though you may be surrounded by people who are filled with fear and anger and other low-frequency emotions and who are making choices based on these emotions, you will make your choices from Love and Compassion and you will be the Diamond Light that shines clearly and magnificently.
Beloved Ones, now is not the time to give up or to step back. Now is the time to fully embrace who you are, who you have become, and to step forward into the Emerald Light as a fully embodied Master, a Creator and Alchemist of Light. In this time of chaos and challenge as the old falls away and the new is still to manifest, it is you who are here to hold the energy of the New, to be the New Earth, and to embody the Power and Empowerment of the New Earth Soul.
The Lion's Gate and the Planetary New Year: A New Cycle of Time and Creation
On the 26th of July, you will enter into the Planetary New Year. This is the Time celebrated by the Ancient Egyptians and the Mayans, as the moment when the Planet begins a New Spiral of Galactic evolution in alignment with the Great Central Sun and the Divine Cosmic Heart. It marks the opening of the Lion's Gate Star Portal, which allows for a powerful influx of Light Codes that will shape the form of experience in the coming year. These Light Codes will lift you into another level of evolution and experience if you allow this process, but if you are not aligned or you are in a low frequency of anxiety and fear, you will simply continue to create at this same level again.
Beloved Ones, be open to this grand influx of powerful Light and Blessings that is coming to you as this Star Portal begins to open on the 26th of July, and culminates on the 8th of Auguust on the 8/8, and then closes on the 12th of August. Here is a "window" of Light and Opportunity for each one of you to step up and into a new level and phase of your personal evolution on Earth.
There will be many distractions in the outer world. Many disasters and conflicts will occur that will ask for your attention and will ask you to align your energy with theirs. Beloved Ones, it is enough to be aware of what is happening, but to focus your energy and attention rather on your inner processes and on the need to initiate a New Cycle of personal Creation that will express a higher level of your Soul and your Soul Essence on the Earth.
Decide for yourself who you are and what you will create in your life and on the Earth, and then focus on that. Do not be drawn by the energies of anything that is not in alignment with what you wish to create.
Time Cycles and the New Cycle
Beloved Ones, in your Earth space of the Fifth Dimension in transition, you have experiences two creative cycles of 8 to 9 years, and you are beginning another now.
From 1999 to 2008 you created together as the first wave of awakened souls on Earth, together with the Indigo and Crystal children. This period included the 9/11 event and the economic collapse of 2008. Both events were aimed at distracting attention from the creation of the New, and keeping people on Earth focuses on the same old creations of fear and lack that allows them to be manipulated and controlled. Then, from 2008 to the end of 2016, you have been in the second cycle, where there has been a continuation of low frequency fear based "events" that are aimed at keeping humanity at a low frequency and preventing them from progressing to freedom and empowerment.
Beloved Ones, if you are awake and aware, you will see how these events always occur at times when a great shift is possible, so that fear and anxiety will prevent many from shifting as they are trapped in their own fears. Do not let this happen to you! Now, as you begin the process for the creation of the 2016/7 to 2026 cycle, focus on Higher Consciousness, Higher Wisdom, and what you desire to create for yourself and for the Earth as you assist in the manifestation process for the New Earth.
The Master that You Are and the Power that Flows through as the Seventh Dimension opens
You have everything that you need within you. Over the past two cycles of evolution and growth, you have activated the Personal Power and Creativity that you need. You have activated your Light Body and the 13 Chakra Energy system that you need to allow you to receive and integrate the incoming Light Codes. You have opened your Hearts to receive the Golden Light of the Christ Consciousness with its Love and Compassion at the center of your existence.
Then, you have received the Diamond Codes that allowed you to reconnect with your Galactic heritage, and the Emerald Codes that allowed you to reconnect with Nature and the Green Heart of the Earth.
More recently, you have begun the rewiring of your energy meridians that allows you to reconnect with the powerful flows of creative and intuitive energy of the Right Brain and to balance these and integrate them with the Left Brain's ability to organize and create narratives.
Beloved Ones, this powerful energy that is flowing into the Planet right now is a torrent of blessings and creative abundance, but unless it is received in balance and integrated into your Light Body system, it has the potential to destabilize your energy field. This Energy flow must then be received by the Pineal Gland Gateway, and then transmitted by the Right Brain and the Left Brain and then into the Heart. From there ist must be grounded into the Earth through Manifestation and connection with the Earth Star and the Earth Heart centers. 
Those who are not grounding this energy will feel this energy running "wild" in their system, and they will become aggressive, fearful, explosive and angry. Those who have no connection with their Soul and Higher Self will feel lost, confused, anxious and unable to find their place in the world.
The whole purpose of your evolution in thee last two cycles has been to reconnect Spirit and Body, Heaven and Earth, so that your Body and Soul are One.
It is your Soul that will provide the center of your Being and your Life right now. You are the Master, your Soul connects to your Heart Center in Love and Peace. You manifest from Soul and Spirit into Matter, following the laws of Divine Creative Power and Balance. You create a Garden of Peace and Creativity within your Heart and Soul that manifests around you.
Beloved Ones, do not seek for Peace and Harmony in the outside world, or in others, right now. You are the ones who are here to demonstrate Mastery and to open the Gateway of the Seventh Dimension. Those around you in the world are still struggling to understand the Fifth Dimensions, and the Magic of the Sixth Dimension, so they cannot at this moment be in that place of expansion where you stand now ready to move forward.
The Seventh Dimension is the frequency of the Master and is the focus and end point of the Ascension process. For you, Beloved Ones, it means to be here on the Earth, in the midst of the turmoil and chaos, and to be in that place of Inner Stillness and Peace. It means to be connected to the powerful Flow of Divine Creative Intelligence and to be able to direct this Flow into Magical Manifestation through Intention and Focus. It means to live without fear, without expectations and attachments, but simply in the Flow of Love, Creativity and Divine Manifestation.
To live as a "Master" does not mean to be "perfect." It means to be who you are as a Soul in a Body, and to express your Soul in alignment with Spirit, in everything that you experience and manifest on Earth.
Beloved Ones, as these Gateways are opening, you are all most welcome to step accross the threshold and claim your place in the Higher Dimensions of Light as they open to Earth. These intense Frequences of brilliant light and Luminosity will illuminate all that you do at this time.
And, as you do this, you will know and trust that you will always be safe and cared for. Your Soul will protect you and Spirit will guide you, as you weae and create with the Divine Creative Intelligence as an Embodied Master of Light.
The Magical Gateway Opens
So, Beloved Family of Light, at this powerful New Year and Lion's Gate, there will also be a powerful opening to the Seventh Dimension of Ascended Mastership available to you if you so desire to move forward in this way.
You will know that you are ready. You will feel that you have mastered the Fifth Dimension of Oneness and released the hold of Duality and the Shadow on your Life. You will be ready to embrace the Love, Creativity and Magic of the Sixth Dimension and to flow with the powerfull Light Cods and currents without Fear. You will be ready to balance yourself between Heaven and Earth, and to step forward as a Master of these Energies on Earth."
