transforming the dark force

…and so the adventure continues!

lightworkerAll we have to do is align with Source energy, merging with utter fluidity in the space of no-mind, no-words, no fixating, no need to explain. Just flow along as energy, witnessing energy, being energy, traveling through doorways and traversing the pathways that unfold before us. – Lorraine Voss, Becoming Awareness

 I have spent some time considering the numerous terms that have surfaced during the course of my lifetime; terms that imply that there are beings on earth that are opening portals and leading the way into higher realms of human consciousness. There are many terms that define this kind of transformational action and they have included, but are not limited to: healers, ascended masters, teachers, gurus, cultural creatives, wisdom keepers, shaman, medicine people, starseeds, flame carriers, earth angels, crystal/rainbow/diamond children, indigos, magentas, lightworkers, and so on. I’m sure you have heard of most, if not all of them. For clarity’s sake, we’ll refer to this energy as light workers in this article.

power is and power moves

autumnThe Equinox brings the balance of light and dark, when we have 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. It ushers in a geometrical alignment between the sun and Earth and returns us to a state of balance. When we align with the energies of the earth and with the cosmos in a state of balance, universal life-force energy moves easily through our bodies and aligns us with the universal energy.

Utilizing the energies of the earth and the universe we find that individual will becomes effortless and we function with ease and in a state of grace. Offering our gratitude for our successes, challenges and failures of the past year, we are able to recapitulate and release them all, just as the trees release their leaves and the plants release their harvest.

re-membering our infinite connection

web of lifeToo much emphasis is placed upon the personal. The burning flame of Spirit, the purity, wholeness, and wisdom, are no longer fueled and are burning themselves out. Self-identity and Spirit must be brought back into balance through individuation. This will allow for an awakening of subconscious qualities.  People will remember the nature of being human within the universe, this vast sea of awareness. They will remember why they projected themselves into human form upon the Earth in the first place. ~ Becoming Awareness

Individuation is a quest for wholeness; a remembering of the self. Without getting into the detailed psychology of the individuation process which, incidentally, includes a lot of recapitulation, when the collective unconscious is brought into consciousness we are able to re-member who we are and why we are here. This brings us to a state of balance.

Leaver vs. Taker

Every man is in touch with everything else, not through his hands, but through a bunch of long fibers that shoot out in all directions from the center of his abdomen. Those fibers join a man to his surroundings; they keep his balance; they give him stability. ~ A Separate Reality

More than stability, our connection with all else has the potential to provide us with stability while existing within multiple realities with fluidity. While we can attain balance when we are connected with the universal life flow of energy moving in, through and around us at all times, it is important to remain in a state of impeccable balance with our energy by ensuring that those around us are unaffected by our actions. This, as Daniel Quinn describes, is Leaver energy – the premise of the Leaver story is ‘man belongs to the world’ – in balance with all beings and situations as they unfold.

Evolving Beyond Earth

Evolving Beyond EarthThere exists a place where people are able to be so free of the distractions that they connect with silent knowledge and glean new, beautiful nuggets of awareness to share. Others honor the beauty of that nugget with gratitude and in freedom. And then other people connect with silent knowledge and share their beautiful nugget of awareness and are honored for the journey that has taken them to see in that manner and share in freedom. And no one becomes attached to these shining nuggets and attempts to “take” them or “have” the same nugget but instead, venture into the unknown to encounter and then share their beautiful piece with the whole, everyone marveling with wonder at the awe and auspiciousness of the universe. This is a new web of existence, each of us lightly traversing these beautiful gossamer threads of awareness, continuously and creatively weaving together through all of eternity. ~ Female Warrior

I am going to be sharing my story about recapitulating the earth, where it came from, what it means to me and why I find it to be important on my journey as a warrior of freedom. It is based on my personal experience and connection with silent knowledge. I don’t expect anyone to believe it, buy into it, try to embody it or otherwise make it their own. What I’m interested in is having the freedom to create and co-create. And if you recognize some nugget of awareness for yourself in the experiences I share then YAY, because there are many from whom I have gleaned nuggets of awareness over the years. I am open to constructive and engaging discussion and hope that before you attempt to tell me I’m wrong or that I need to seek clarification of my perceptions that you take the time to consider and honor the story you are creating and/or co-creating. How drab our world would be if we were all aligned with the same one. Our diversity is what makes us warriors of freedom.

Impeccable Balance

ocotilloThe warrior’s final challenge is to balance all the attributes of his path. Once he does that, his purpose becomes inflexible. He is no longer moved by a desperate desire for gain. He is the owner of his will, and can put it to his personal service. When he arrives at that point, the warrior has learned how to be impeccable. And for him to continue being impeccable depends totally on the energy he has accumulated. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual

When a warrior begins balancing all the attributes of her path, she comes to realize that she never has to desire anything again because she understands that she has absolutely everything she needs through sheer force of will and her connection and alignment with intent. Thinking that there is not enough of something, or no time left to complete a task, or trying to change something is replaced by simply knowing that when we are so fully in the flow of intent that we have everything we need and there is nothing left to ask for. We take responsibility for our lives by simply aligning with intent, getting out of our own way, and allowing the nature of things to unfold. Power is and power moves.

Perception

The core of our being is the act of perceiving, and the magic of our being is the act of awareness. Perception and awareness can be a single, functional, inextricable unit with two domains. The first one is the attention of the tonal; that is to say, the capacity of average people to perceive and place their awareness on the ordinary world of everyday life: our first ring of power; our awesome but taken-for-granted ability to impart order to our perception of our daily world. ~ don Juan, The Second Ring of Power

I once read a quote that said “there is no truth, there is only perception” yet so many people hunger for the truth. They sit around and wait for a truth to be declared and when it is they either buy into it or reject it. Stopping the internal dialogue is the key to the sorcerers’ world, the mystery. The mystery, or the secret of the sorcerers’ explanation is that it deals with unfolding the wings of perception. The nagual by itself is of no use, it has to be tempered by the tonal. The sorcerers’ secret in using the nagual is in our perception.

Mother Earth – Our Ultimate Ally

We are children of the Earth, it is our ultimate source. The option of sorcerers is to unite with the awareness of the Earth, for as long as the Earth will live. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual

Don Juan described an ally as being “a power capable of transporting a man beyond the boundaries of himself”; that is, an ally was a power that allowed one to transcend the realm of ordinary reality. Consequently, to have an ally implied having power; and the fact that a man of knowledge had an ally was by itself proof that the operational goal of the teachings had been fulfilled. Since that goal was to show how to become a person of knowledge, and since a person of knowledge was one who had an ally, another way of describing the operational goal of don Juan’s teachings was to say that they also showed how to obtain an ally. The concept “man of knowledge,” as a sorcerer’s philosophical frame, has meaning for anyone who wants to live within that frame only insofar as he had an ally.

Life out of Balance

If we don’t learn how to travel along the avenues of awareness, we will come to such a state of frustration and despair that humanity will end up destroying itself. Our options are the way of the warrior, or extinction. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Encounters with the Nagual

This quote has been on my mind daily for about a year and will not leave. It has become a type of mantra that plays over and over as I am witness to situations, occurrences and incidents that are harmful to the environment and the beautiful animal creatures that inhabit her, including us. Most of my free time is spent outdoors, in the garden, camping in the remote wilderness, walking through the desert or forest enjoying the smells, sounds and wildlife that accompanies me.

Vision Quest

Inner silence works from the moment you begin to accrue it. The desired result is what the old sorcerers called “stopping the world”, the moment when everything around us ceases to be what it’s always been. This is the moment when sorcerers return to the true nature of man. The old sorcerers called it total freedom. ~ Carlos Castaneda ~ The Active Side of Infinity

The vision quest is an amazing commitment that gently guides one outside of their comfort zone and effectively shifts the assemblage point. Vision quest pushes one to move beyond themselves to connect intimately and deeply with Mother Earth and the Infinite Mystery. Every indigenous culture has performed some type of vision quest from Jesus and Buddha, Shaman and Medicine People, Indigenous Peoples and American Indians up to modern day men and women from all countries and all walks of life. The vision quest is an opportunity to connect with profound silent knowledge, including heartfelt inner truth and insight, typically done alone, in a remote natural setting and has been practiced for many thousands of years.
