To what do we surrender other than the true source of our powerful beingness deep within our hearts which is always flowing in perfect harmony and grace The tides of change within us as what we think of as life have no power or function other than to offer us a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of colors and patterns Distracting us only for moments until we remember how precious each of us truly are as the creators not the created Charlie Riverman Bergeron 8.25.21
Willingness or Resistance to Truth – Show Notes 8.20.21
Last week I spoke about our moving forward into a new paradigm, and this morning I woke up with the word willingness clearly implanted in my mind.
As I repeated it over and over to remember it, the word resistance appeared.
These two words are what come to me as polar opposites, yet we can also be willing to resist something, and within that framework, it would be wise to take a deep look within ourselves.
Right now, in our collective human experience, there is much confusion and painful chaos amidst wonderful new understandings. It is right here that we begin our journey into the future expression of humanity.
If we look back into the distant beginnings, we see that many of our civilizations were not as primitive as we have been told in our history books as children.
I struggled with this when I was a child in History and Biology, and it became a part of my resistance to listen to authority. However, when I look at the present world, our relationship to Mother Earth and each other, I am brought to feel as though I had already seen what is happening.
Each of us is now being called to remember the choices we have made throughout our lifetime. Not to judge them or ourselves, yet to understand the results of those choices so that we may release those harmful ones and release them with loving-kindness.
Our resistance is a natural process within our brains and can be triggered by many actions and energies. It is many times a survival mechanism when fears rise to warn us of something threatening or dangerous. However, what is happening is that we are overriding our ability to accept Truth.
Truth is positive and our sense of direction into the future.
Here is where acceptance becomes essential to our future.
Can we accept radical change?
This question refers to our inner and wounded self that is now rising to be released or healed.
Carl Jung states quite poignantly, “We cannot change anything until we accept it.”
Willingness eventually becomes acceptance, and resistance becomes what we want to be true yet is only a mask to cover the pain and suffering of accepting our inner confusion and pain.
What is the Truth right now?
What is the impact of Truth on the past and future?
Where does Truth conflict with our thinking and behavior?
As for a Willingness to accept Truth, it is a great challenge for us, both as individuals and in a collective community.
A Course In Miracles expresses it in this card I pulled,
while asking for guidance to explain this:
Every loving thought is true.
Everything else is an appeal for healing and help, regardless of the form it takes.
Our answers and solutions all arise from within us, not around us.
“If we drag the past into the present, we program the future to be like the past.
Miracles occur in the present.” ~ Marianne Williamson
Let us all dive deeper into our hearts in search of the true story of our lives.
Let us be willing to release forever all those moments we created stories about to protect ourselves from the Truth.
Let us be brave and bold enough to change our perceptions of the teachings we have received that do not align with our magnificence.
It is knowing that the choices we make within our hearts are the energy that will change the future.
May you be safe and well on this journey and know that you are Love.
Once again, we are gathering, and the topic is gratitude
It seems strange to talk about gratitude amidst all of what appears to be mass destruction.
However, it is sometimes the worst situations in our lives that bring us to realizing what we need to let go of.
So many people around the world, and perhaps some of you, are suffering losses that were unimaginable three years ago, and you might say to me, how can I be grateful in the midst of what I’m going through.
We are now at a place and time within the evolution of humanity where we are to look at everything in our lives as both an ending and a beginning.
At first, we are overwhelmed, and then we experience our ability to let go of what we have thought made us who we are. From that moment, we begin to look forward and upward to see if there is something better, not outside of us but within us.
This moment of awareness is called a strategic inflection point, the moment when we know, we cannot continue and need to shift into a new paradigm.
When we reach this point, we may feel emotionally overwhelmed and can’t imagine what direction to move in, and the separation between our thoughts and actions becomes radically challenging.
Here is where we need to create a still point to look back through our living history.
Gently notice what can no longer be carried within us emotionally, all our past traumas, all of our suffering, all of those incidents where we feel scared or lonely.
Both individually and collectively, those moments of trauma keep us from seeing which direction we need to flow forward again.
We can continue the circle that we are on and repeat all of that pain and suffering in a different form, or we have the choice to rise and break away – leaving that circle to follow our True Heart, whose guidance is being directed from a higher dimension of awareness.
Our Sovereign Awareness, the awareness of the Source of who we are in Truth, Light, and Love.
It is not an easy choice to make, and many of us get stuck right here at this point of inflection.
If we get stuck there, we do not release all the traumatic stories of our lives; we then become somewhat trapped and look outside of ourselves for somebody to save us.
The message today is that you are your savior, and you come to realize that you have an innate power to choose to rise out of the misery, the pain and control that was put upon you by past experiences, present people, and future concepts.
You will then begin to feel that you are genuinely in a state of awareness and freedom where our evolution does not need permission from anyone or anything to occur, for it is the natural flow of humanity.
You can look back throughout our recorded history even though it has been rewritten with lies for thousands of years, realizing that this has occurred many times, and if it hadn’t, we would not be having this conversation this morning.
So, we move forward in gratitude; let’s think of it as leaving that circular pattern that keeps us repeating the same mistakes in different ways.
As we all know, Mother Earth is in a period of serious dilemma, and as we are a part of Her, we also experience that suffering.
So many people around the world, and perhaps some of you, are suffering losses that were unimaginable maybe three years ago, and you would say to me, how can I be grateful in the midst of what I’m going through.
This place in the evolution of humanity where we are to look at everything in our lives as both an ending and a beginning.
At first, we are overwhelmed by the forms of ending, and after we experience our ability to let go of what we have thought made us who we are, we begin to look forward and upward to see if there is something better.
Not outside of us but within us
This moment is called a strategic inflection point, the moment we know that we cannot continue like this and need to shift into a new paradigm.
When we reach this point, we feel emotionally overwhelmed and can’t even imagine what direction to move in, and the separation between our thoughts and actions becomes radically challenging.
It is here that we need to create a still point to look back through our living history. We are seeking to find what can no longer be carried forward within us emotionally.
All of our past traumas, all of our suffering, all of those incidents where we felt scared or lonely, for it is all of those moments of trauma both individually and collectively that keep us from seeing which direction we need to flow forward and upward in.
We can choose to continue on the circle that we are on and repeat in a different form, all of that pain and suffering, or we have the choice to rise to break away from that circle to leave it behind us to follow our hearts. Our true heart, whose guidance is directed from a higher dimension of awareness, is always waiting for us to acknowledge it.
Our Sovereign Awareness is the awareness and understanding of the Source of who we are in truth in light and love.
It’s not an easy choice to make, and many of us get stuck right here at this point of inflection, and as we get stuck there and do not release all the pain and suffering of the stories of our lives, we become trapped and look outside of ourselves for somebody to save us.
Today, the message is that you are your savior and realize that you have that innate power to choose to rise out of the misery, pain, and control put upon you by past experiences, present people, or future concepts.
You come to realize that you are genuinely in a state of evolutionary freedom and that human evolution does not need permission from anyone or anything to occur. It is the natural flow of humanity.
You can look throughout our history, even though it was written with lies and stories for thousands of years, and realize that if it hadn’t, we would not be having this conversation this morning.
So, we move in gratitude, or if you want to move forward and not think of it as growing, let’s think of it perhaps as leaving that circular pattern that keeps us repeating the same mistakes in different ways.
As we all know, Mother Earth is in a period of severe dilemma, and as we are a part of her, so too we experience that suffering.
Yet to think about escaping mother earth to go live on other planets is an idea from people who refuse to realize that they are the ones who have created the damage here. And rather than correcting the damage they have done to Mother Earth, they, like the history of humans tells us, go somewhere else and make the same pattern of destruction there. That is the old paradigm, which has caused all the pain and suffering we are experiencing right now.
So how do we rise in gratitude? First, we have to come back into our hearts; we must recognize how we can live together more harmoniously and peacefully.
Being more peaceful is not a new thought; this has been my journey for most of my life. From the time I was a child on the streets to who I am today, it has been a journey of complete change.
Yet, when I look through my life, I recognize where the places were that stopped me from changing along the way, and I realize the pain of those moments and offer them forgiveness.
Not because I’m honoring them but because it’s the only way to release them from my consciousness at the level where they recreate the trauma. The trauma stopped me at that point in my life.
Let us look within ourselves to recognize what’s happening in the world that stops us from being in our hearts right now.
Please make a list of those moments as they appear to your mind, read them, and realize that the points in your life that have been most painful and most distressing cannot continue ruling your life anymore.
When I look through my life, I recognize the people and events that stopped me from acknowledging my true self, and I realize the pain of those moments without fear.
Then I can acknowledge them and release their energies.
I offer them forgiveness, and even if mourning the loss of someone.
I honor their presence in my life and bring them within my heart.
Let us now look around for the people in our lives that honor us, that love us without conditions and choose to be with them.
Begin to disconnect energetically with those whose energies no longer align with the positive power of our hearts.
Let us make this journey one of rising in gratitude to be filled with peace, light, and love, and they know that as we heal ourselves, we also heal mother earth.
We will live and co-create together in more harmony and peace as we leave the past behind and choose the new paradigm in our evolutionary path.
Blessings to all this morning as the words ‘Return To Joy’ rolled through my mind as I thought of what I might talk about today.
We all have been and are still going through many changes in how we embrace daily life.
We are also facing more changes which will appear as a wider separation rather than a coming together.
My first card of today is from Soul Inspirations Message Cards by Kahliya and reads as follows:
Where it Stings
At first glance, I did not relate to the words and quickly realized that I did not want to rather than couldn’t. I wanted my first message of the day to be bright and sunny, like the rising sun that was greeting me.
However, as I sat with it for a few moments, I began to understand that we are all in a place of learning what no longer resonates with us as we embrace what appears to us as a very uncertain future.
The next card was about Joy from the Course In Miracles:
“The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Joy. He is the call to return with which God blessed the minds of His separated Sons. This is the vocation of the mind.”
Here we are in this moment of our human experience when fear and chaos are presented from many sources and create both physical and mental distress and illness.
Where is the Light, we might ask amid all of this challenging darkness we might ask?
The briefest answer I can give you is that You Are The Light.
Joy and Light are synonymous, and both offer us a new opportunity to see things differently.
So our main focus right now is to shift our consciousness from what appears negative to positive, from darkness to Light and experience a more joyous relationship with each other and Mother Earth.
There is a great awakening within us, and we are entering the dawn of a new age that extends thousands of years into our future.
I am brought to think about our ancestors and how they are overwhelmed by how we live today. Reminding me of the indigenous Kogi that came down from their isolation in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Maria to give us a message about the environment and ecosystem over 20 years ago.
Joy is relative to well-being, and we are always a part of Mother Earth, and we are beginning to see the deeper relationship we have with the abundant planet Earth of which we are a living part.
Let us get back into synchronicity with Mother Earth and realize that our connection to all of life is our healing medicine.
Let the isolation and fear that we have learned over the past year and a half be the teacher who tells us to turn around.
To look within ourselves for all of the ways we can reclaim our joy through kindness and understanding.
Let us come back out of these caves, where we hide out of fear of the leadership that no longer leads but commands.
Let us celebrate our joy first within our minds and hearts, and as we remember how to dwell there again, let us offer it to the world around us.
A Moment To Pause Show Notes 7.30.21 The human mind is being overloaded with information that induces fear and discord at an unprecedented level, creating a significant shift in our awareness and ability to process it all.
It is now affecting our ability to perceive and discern what is real and what is not.
Each of us has become overwhelmed by all of the information presented to us over the past year and a half.
This morning I wrote:
Let us all take a moment to pause
and see through
what the programmed mind
is offering us to accept
and tap into
the Light and Love
of the True Self
that exists beyond limitations and fear.
– Riverman 7.30.21
So what does pausing mean for you?
It has brought me to a place where the word NO is getting used more frequently and without the usual amount of guilt that I attach to it.
Grand Rising and Many Blessings to each of you as we welcome this Full Moon Light.
Yes, we are aware that this Light is a reflection, yet its power to invite us deeper into ourselves can be very dramatic.
We are being guided right now to dive deeper into the memories of our existence and release all that cannot be sustained in our future.
I’m talking about the pain, suffering, and trauma that is both personal and as a whole.
We are One Humanity that has a collective as well as individual memory.
The memory can be programmed to suffer through fear, and it limits our abilities to see the future as an open field of evolving positive creation. Except when Light is allowed to shine into the darkness and reveal what is an illusion.
Illusion happens when our perception is distorted, and we are told that we must see everything according to what others who have chosen to be our leaders dictate to us.
The word dictate is not a very pleasant word for many of us in these days of our evolution, for it resonates with been ordered or dominated rather than just being spoken to for us to remember information.
When we were children and walked in the darkness, we were given a torch or flashlight to reveal what we could not see before us, and this full moon is offering that to us.
It is here to teach or remind us that we have an inner light that is even stronger than what is being reflected to us, within us,
What if we tap into that Light that is eternal and not ever going to burn out or dissipate? We will find the truth that is beyond words that can be spoken.
Beyond what we can hear with our physical body, which will arise from within our conscious awareness with ease and grace, all that is blocking it will be released through love and trust.
The more we let go of our feelings of helplessness and expectations of something outside of our energy fields to save us, the more we will learn to trust the Light within us to radiate with greater intensity.
We will then embrace all of life as the Pillars of Light each one of us truly is.
THE MESSAGE TODAY IS SIMPLE.
Trust the more profound inner Light that you begin to get glimpses of—those moments where everything comes together in balance and harmony.
Know that the darkness you encounter is much like the evenings when there is no moon shining and only a temporary cycle.
Expect the Light to return when you are at your darkest moment, for it is already within, and you need to align with it for its transformation energy.
If we can once again trust that Inner Light and dismiss the darkness as on the background through which it shines, we will restore the peace within ourselves and extend it more easily with each other.
Bringing humanity back into balance with Mother Earth and restoring the imbalance that our future generations will face.
We are the Pillars of Light, sharing it into the present moment and the future simultaneously.
“The way to Harmony is by remembering who you are in every moment – a divine expression, spirit into matter.” Shanta Gabriel
Good morning and thank you as we journey deep within ourselves.
Today I want to talk about something that we don’t do unless we reach a point where everything within us and around us starts to crumble and fall apart.
The evolutionary timeframe that we live in right now is filled with a great deal of distortion, and it affects all living beings, more particularly humans.
Each of us has spent over a year in a state of heightened fear due to a virus that has spread worldwide and taken the lives of our loved ones.
As a result of separation and the rewiring of our neural system to protect ourselves, our brain has been overloaded with new information at a rate never before experienced.
I’m sure some scientists will argue that we are fully capable of handling this overload, yet each of us is beginning to show signs of extreme fatigue due to stress.
For me, it has been relatively stable until recently when the so-called Brain Fog has presented itself as a formidable foe.
Time to be alone has become a very mixed bag for many of us, and we are being challenged to create it and honor it.
As an act of Love and Compassion, we are being called to make tiny holes in our schedules to detach from the radical energy stream and find Peace.
Finding Peace in this craziness is not an easy task, but we are creator beings and have far more capability to heal ourselves than we have been told or might think at this moment.
The key to all our healing is Love, and here is a quote from a newly published book, The Guardian Gateway, by Kim Wilborn:
“The more Love you feel, the more powerful you are. Think about that for a moment, and notice how it applies to your own life. To be a truly powerful force for good in the world, we have to extend the Love we feel to include our own selves.” – Kim Wilborn.
It hit home with how we are constantly sending Love to others and know it is always available as we send it, yet how much do we send to our physical self.
Each of us needs to create more time to focus on allowing Love to flow through every cell of our bodies to heal our wounds and distortions.
Let us listen to our bodies and honor them at a deeper level.
Our Love and Healing is honoring all that We Are and replenishing our physical structure with the Divine Presence of Grace and Peace.
Grace and Peace are the keys to Our future generations, and We are the Keepers of the Keys.
Create both time and space to listen more deeply within yourself and allow the pain and confusion you hold within to be released, even if it is only for several short periods each day.
We may get overwhelmed by all that is changing at this rapid pace. However, We are Creatures of Peace, Light, and Love and need to tap into that Energy to refill and replace all the negative images we have of ourselves with those which hold the many frequencies of Love.
Then let us share them with everyone, for as we honor ourselves, it becomes easier to honor all others.
Good Morning and Blessings to All on this day of the New Moon representing “a return of the Light,” which invites us to empty our pockets of all that no longer has any meaningful purpose or alignment with our journey into the future Self.
For some, unknowingness may feel overwhelming, and they try to avoid it by adding more tasks to their already overwhelming to-do list.
Hopefully, for those listening today and reading this message, there will be a moment of pausing in which the word knowingness incites curiosity.
We are entering into a New World that is not being planned as well as we may be told by those who claim excellent knowledge for that they are not free to swim against the incoming tide.
All of which leaves most of us to float, which requires our releasing of old thinking patterns and adjusting to living more at the moment.
Indeed, this can be overwhelming for some, and if you are feeling that, please take some time to connect back to nature during this New Moon.
Find those places where you feel a sense of wholeness with Mother Earth and can let everything go, even if only for a few moments. Those few moments will deepen into hours and reset the awkwardness of unknowing.
In nature, we become whole again because we are Water and Earth in our living form and need to reconnect to that part of ourselves.
Our trust in those whose selfishness has eroded our living standards has caused an imbalance in the world around us, and we have accepted that they have power over every aspect of our Living Planet.
We are now witnessing the danger and foolishness of this thinking that came from insensitive greed or, let us say, “intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power or food.” (Google)
A message this morning from the “Gabriel Message Cards” by Shanta Gabriel reads as follows:
“Your way to freedom is by total acceptance of your incredible differences.”
If we look at the world, it appears that our incredible differences are not being heard or respected.
Nor are they realized as having any importance, which diminishes our self-worth and allows the overruling of great masses of individuals.
Especially those whose solutions to situations take power away from our global society’s established but hidden organizational structure.
I ask each of you to honor yourself first as a lovely being of Peace, Light, and Love.
Step out of the chaos and into our local wilderness.
No matter how large or small.
Take moments to unknow something and see it as if for the first time again from a place of innocence.
Remember that the word freedom is not about fighting for something. It is a natural order of life here on Planet Earth and part of its structure.
Many influential wordsmiths from many centuries have rewritten everything to serve those who seek and are in power and control, and it is now time to listen to those who touch your Hearts, not your minds.
I offer you this poem from our Global Heart Team gathering yesterday:
The Smile of Love
is always held in precious and caring energy
waiting for the perfect opportunity
to rise and flow to all in need of its light and Peace
It is in our stillness that the reservoir becomes witnessed
and confirms within us how powerful it truly is
Unconditional Love… How Precious and Omnipotent
silently awaiting our choice to share it with others
Let us all travel deeper into this reservoir
witnessing its endlessness and readiness
honoring who we truly are as Love
the Divine Source of all Life
Love becomes Light and then flows within Peace
and is eternally replenished without our struggling
for it is We who are that reservoir eternally
and momentarily embodied in this physicality.
Written during a Global Heart Team Meditation 7.8.21
