A Dear Friend sent this poem by Rudolph Steiner to me without any other words of explanation.
A gift of the Heart that inspired me as if it were a Call and Response to which I slipped gently into the ‘Inner Quiet’ from where I replied.
I bear within myself,
Forces to make me strong.
Now will I be imbued with their glowing warmth.
Now will I fill myself
With my own will’s resolve.
And I will feel the quiet
Pouring through all my being
When by my steadfast striving
I become strong
To find within myself the source of strength
The strength of inner quiet.
Good morning… Beltane Blessings, Happy May Day or in much simpler terms let us embrace today as a Return of the Sun.
Ancient holidays are better called holy days. Simply because they were held in deep reverence and aligned with the natural world around us including our Sun and stars in the sky.
Long before time was divided into numbers and our lives became aligned with numerical patterns rather than a natural patterns.
How strange life becomes when we erase from memory the old ways, the ways of our ancestors, the ways of our natural evolution.
I invite you to take the journey with me today.
Let us leave behind our world of computers, our world of social distancing, the misunderstandings and perversion through which the entire population of our beloved planet has been now held as prisoners of fear.
May we take a deep breath in through our noses, exhaling as our dry mouth feels the water congregating on our tongues, as our breath re-enters the atmosphere around us.
Ancient celebrations were all about life, all about the patterns of life that everyone observed with awe.
A Powerful Presence which could only be respected for its Living Energy.
Let’s just rest here for a moment and notice on this ancient day of celebration, we can remember the natural patterns of life as a gift or a loss.
It’s a balanced day, a day in which we can look behind us at darkness or look forward into the new light.
I say New Light because light is always traveling towards us, light is always inviting us to dance. Whether it be around a Maypole, or a fire it is the dance of the circle of life.
No Sun, no Light, no Life.
It reminds me of our past celebrations of World Water Day and Earth Day where we gathered in our hearts, in a more modern way, yet still practicing ancestral ways in order to reconnect, to remember phrases like
no Water no Life
no Earth no Life
So today let us embrace each other as the returning Sun, the returning Light that brings warmth and powerful positive energy.
Not only to each other listening to this moment but to everyone, free of charge. As it was in the beginning, Is now, when you clear way all of the darkness and ever shall be when we align our hearts with our Truthful Memory.
Not the falsehood that has been layered and written over the truth.
Let us dance in circles showing our beautiful colors, a beautiful deep and rich spectrum of powerful presence that cannot be separated from us by virus or technology.
As most of you are aware by now I don’t wake up in the morning with any big idea of what my talks will be about. I know that my Guides will present me with exactly what needs to be done.
So with that said…
Good morning everyone and hopefully I find you doing well during this global crisis which tends to wear us down as it draws itself out in time.
Today’s message comes to me as I vision a resurrection of humanity. One in which everyone is now being subjected to the unexpected crisis of global suffering.
Whether we know someone personally or only hear of it through our news media we are all experiencing the dilemma of illness and separation.
I see this as an opportunity for each of us to look within our own hearts and really question everything.
When I began to think about my talk this morning I was led to the an invocation from Patricia Cota-Robles appropriately named – Invoking The Resurrection Flame. As I see us gathering energies from deep within our hearts in preparation for something both amazing and magnificent.
So I just want to read the first part of this…
I Am my I Am Presence and I Am One with the I Am Presence of ALL Humanity.
The center of my Universe is the Threefold Flame in my Heart.
My Universe consists of every person, place, condition and thing in my life, conscious or unconscious, past or present, the obvious choice or through karmic liability.
Within my Heart Flame, I have the ability to Love my Universe FREE of all lower energies and thus I set myself Free. Simultaneously I assist every other point in my Universe to move forward in Light.
I Am the center of my Universe.
I Am a force of God’s Resurrection Flame to all points in my Universe.
I Am Loving Free every vibration less than Divine Love.
I Am Free… I am Free… I am Eternally Free
I’m sure most of us see that invocation as a marvelous thought or perhaps magical wish that is so far from our reality right now that seems unachievable.
Yet when we think of the word resurrection we immediately think of the Easter story of Jesus which is not the first resurrection story but the one that holds the most power for us right now as an example of what it might look like or feel like.
So what I’m sensing is that through our physical separation from each other and our special places on Earth where we receive deeper connection to all life…
We are somewhat buried in a barren and empty tomb. Waiting for that moment of inner release and acceptance of our True Freedom.
The future looks somewhat dark and much like a struggle for survival, yet our Deep Divine Love for Life has been buried under all our materialism and separation over thousands of years.
The Good News is that it is now being brought to the Light as Patricia tells us “WITHIN MY HEART FLAME.”
Yes WE do have the power to change it all, once we acknowledge the destruction we have created.
I was then guided to the Kuan Yin Oracle by Alana Fairchild and today’s card is appropriately #33 Ten Sisters Of Light.
The message is primarily to remember that our lives are a collection many of us are highly advanced souls. We have many skills and abilities that we have accumulated over lifetimes and they are now a unified expression.
She writes that… “it is like drawing on the power of 10 sisters, or more into your one current lifetime”.
Inferring that we have at least 10 times more power and strength than we think we might have. Our journey from this point on will be more of a Soul Journey versus a physical human journey.
Kuan Yin reminds us to be patient, to be open and to be trusting. We will be shedding so many old issues, pain and suffering even without full awareness of them.
It will be the Light of our Souls that will direct us and that we are to Trust that Light, that threefold flame of which Patricia speaks.
For we are the Light and have always been the Light yet have chosen a very long time ago to separate and experience the darkness.
I think each one of us can agree now that we’ve had enough experiencing of the darkness. We can fully understand the intrigue and its ability to swallow us. We chose separation in order to experience it, not fully understanding its power because we were innocent children of light, who were given free will to explore this beautiful garden in the third dimension.
So as I wrap this up I want you to travel deep within your heart’s, to seek what may seem like a very small spark of light. It may appear as just a very tiny sparkling crystal, but even that tiny shiny crystal has enough Light and Power for you to Resurrect yourself.
As we focus on the Light within our Hearts the Love will grow like the small seed, that becomes the giant tree, that provides so much for so many.
People like You are the Light and Love embodied as the resurrection and as We truly embrace the Divine Grace and Power that each of us Truly Are, WE end the separation and become ONE and whole again.
From Sacred Space Meditation Cards by Eleanor Von Linden
“I am at peace with myself, and I know that a powerful presence is working through me.”
From A Course In Miracles “You have the right to all the universe; to perfect peace, complete deliverance from all effects of sin, and to the life eternal, joyous and complete in every way, as God appointed…” T, 538
Today’s message is about peace and whether it’s inner peace or external peace makes no significant difference.
Each of us are now receiving both energy and information from the Source of Creation that vibrates within us and which brings us into a perfect state of acceptance.
Acceptance of what you may ask?
How about the acceptance of healing.
Not talking about the healing from a medical standpoint but healing on a spiritual level.
The Kuan Yin Oracle card from Alana Fairchild today is…
Call Of The Dancing Crane
“Dancing Crane moves through the waters and muddying marsh with elegance and grace. The meeting call and dance of the Crane is full of beautiful moment flow. There are times when the astral waters of our emotional life become stagnant and will benefit from the healing movement, grace and beauty of the Dancing Crane. The Call of the Dancing Crane is a reminder that Sound can be healing too. This is particularly so when your thoughts, beliefs and emotional patterns do not support you in living the spiritual destiny you were born to live.”
So here we are entering into a time-frame of letting go of the heavy muddiness, the darkness and all that keeps us stuck in the uncertainty of our consciousness.
The Dancing Crane reminds us that we are creating a new energetic pattern, in which our elegance and grace will be seen not only by others but brightly within our own hearts.
As we dance through all of our thinking and reacting to the programs of control which keep us stuck, we find a new ability to not be destabilized anymore.
Our sifting through the old thought patterns and filtering out of all which no longer serve our Higher Self, leaves the microscopic crystalline particles which re-activate the original blueprint of our dynamic energetic structure.
All patterns and changes that were superimposed over this original blueprint are no longer seen or felt, nor can they have any direct influence on our new choices.
The beauty of the cranes dance did not happen overnight. As in any dancing we achieve perfection one step at a time and through our hearts dedication. So we must be patient and accepting of our higher inner guidance as we redefine our self-worth.
Our self-worth increases in parallel relationship to our removing obstacles, which becomes easier through practice.
It is now truly important to keep reminding ourselves when doubt arises of how much we are loved on a Universal level.
From this embracing of Self we get asked very clearly, to reclaim Our Voices, Our Grace, and Our Light.
Knowing that in offering release to the muddy shadows of our existence, our fears and all that no longer serves our higher purpose, we allow for the True Self to move into that void which welcomes you Home.
Within Each of Us… there is a channel of thought that is being carved by the Deep Waters of Our True Presence asking us to Let Go of the Past.
Within Each of Us… there is a stream of memories where we have been so energetically shocked, that the human brain had to contract and place the energies of those experiences in isolation, to contain what it had no way of understanding or transmuting.
What We are fearful of right now is triggering all of those secreted memories that are stored away, both in our individual, as well as our collective fields of consciousness.
The fear that I’m reminded of most is that we are powerless.
Let us first remember that to actually want to release the energetic demons which have held us prisoner for so long, sounds like punishment not freedom.
How can we release these past energies without going through the suffering once again?
Let Go Of Control Recognize and Let Go of the Damage Done Acknowledge and Let Go of where You Are Energetically Blocked Let Go of mistrust and Trust That Resurrection Is Real Allow Your True Sovereign Self To Emerge
No matter what comes up, be gentle and learn to send it Light and Love. Take it slowly and as the awareness presents itself, don’t go looking for more than you can handle at any one time.
We are not here alone and if we breathe gently into all of this past suffering, with a True desire to release it,
without anger or the sense of being a victim,
then we will have begun the process of accepting Our Sovereignty.
The world around us may change dramatically but so will WE.
I offer this Prayer which a friend sent to me…
You, my heavenly friend, my Angel,
Who guides me to the earth
And will guide me through the gate of death
To the spirit home of the human soul.
You, who knows the paths for millennia,
Never cease to enlighten me,
To strengthen me,
To advise me;
That I may emerge
From the consuming fire of destiny
As a stronger vessel,
And learn evermore to fill myself
With a sense for the divine goals,
The striving of the spiritual world.
Here in my part of the World which is the Southwestern Coast of Maine I awoke this morning and did not know what day it was. Not that it is particularly unusual, but there was a different feeling which surrounded it.
Many of us have now been cut away from our daily routines and calendars filled with appointments or connections of social interaction. Even yesterday I actually put an event in my calendar that I did not want to miss and it felt strange to see the daily blankness.
What is this Awareness speaking to you about? What is this Void offering to you? Does it speak to you from a place within your Deep Hidden Heart?
The picture I chose for this writing was the clearing of a storm as I feel that our present human situation is similar in many ways.
Not so much on the surface of who we are in the outer expression of Our Living Presence but deep within those chambers which were closed when We were children who could not understand the energies around us that were shocking and painful.
The storms which our families set upon us, due to the misunderstandings of their own existence, in a world which they too had to bury pain deep within the marrow of their bones.
We Are Arising In Awareness is not meant to be a catchy phrase or type of mantra as it what is actually taking place around the world simultaneously. How wonderful can it be if the suffering of humanity for thousands of years began to lift away and Light shine through the clouds and darkness?
Yes, I Am A Dreamer! A very gifted dreamer as are you if you choose lift that that veil of overbearing and painful trauma within your bones that no longer responds to fear.
Each of us are now being subjected to Global Fear at levels that are unprecedented and many of us are managing it very well. Of course there are many exceptions as I see that the world leaders are beginning to wonder if their choices are going to destroy rather than create their New World.
All of the past Pandemics, Revolutions and World Wars are fully being seen now as moments in which Humanity chose a new pathway as a collective.
Out of the chaos and destruction of life will always arise the new beginnings… much like in our gardens. Yes, we who think we are in control of everything have to face that we are not really the rulers of this planet that we think we are.
Our humility eventually settles in to our physical and mental structures in order to allow us to rise from the ashes.
So I ask each of you to open the iron doors of those hidden chambers within your physical Beingness. Allow the Light to seep into the marrow of your bones Be gentle and kind to that Inner Child which is still in pain Recognize all of those childhood traumas slowly and carefully Embrace your fear and offer it comfort from who you truly are Acknowledging that the Light which is now beginning once again to flow Will seep slowly at first under those seemingly unmovable memories To lift and transmute them into objects which will dissipate and thank you for their release.
May YOUR True Divine Awareness Be Restored May WE Arise and Be Seen in the Dark Skies
And may our new days and calendars be filled with moments that reflect how we as humans can embrace each other and till the soil of our new awareness for all living beings on our amazing Mother Earth. Charlie Riverman Bergeron 4.5.20
Many times in our life we have had opportunities to look up at the sky and become filled with awe and wonder. This photo I took years ago of the sky above Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, reminded me of a card I pulled this evening.
It was a Sacred Space Meditation Card by Elinor Von Linden, which in many ways resembled this one except for it being of pair of galaxies about 140 million light-years away from Earth.
The title of the card was simply… “CHANGE” It’s simplest message was… “Change is a permanent law of the Universe.”
It brought to mind once again that all we are now moving through, is for our ultimate benefit not our destruction.
If we continue to look at all the negative possibilities of change then we are foreseeing our future as a punishment. It doesn’t make sense, but we will accept it as perhaps something we deserve for our selfishness or greediness.
On the contrary when we can see the potential of wonder and exploration, our energy shifts into a very inviting moment and we open to the awe of the unknown.
Are we not always being guided to create a New Day, where Our Higher Self is no longer hidden behind all of our shadows?
Of course We are , yet there are many we encounter everyday who will tell us we are dreaming or living in a fantasy.
We believe them because we were taught to believe them… to push aside our dreams and visions of the many possibilities Life continues to offer us. Slowly changing ourselves into obedient little creatures that no longer can identify Real Truth.
Change Is Inevitable and it is about resurrecting that long ago lost feeling of empowerment, to return to making decisions from within our own Hearts.
Becoming flashes of Light in the clouds that come to be seen and then disappear, leaving an indelible impression on both ourselves and those who see us.
The more We do it … the more others will witness and question their own abilities to burst free from the clouds
The last affirmation on this card is,“As I change my mind, I am then able to change my life.”
Take another look at the Sun Dog above and feel it in your Heart. Knowing that it is a gift to remind you, of who and what you are when you let go of all the stories about you.
Change Is Inevitable and you are the Change Maker.
April 1st and there is field of energy, spiraling through us and around us.
This is not for those who are fearful but those who understand that to shape shift from one form to another takes greater skill than one would imagine.
As we now move through many uncomfortable moments in our awareness the focus must always remain on the Center. Gaze into the center of the above altered photograph of a hand knit butterfly, whose creator turned 100 years old this past summer.
There is a Feminine and a Masculine Energy spiraling and creating a vortex from which will emerge a completely new energetic structure. One that will both let go of the negative and accept the positive of the former one as it leaves its imaginal state.
This is where WE are right now.
It is a time to find Our Balance before full emergence, so that the complete cycle is stabilized and brought through to its Divine Completion.
How do you see your completion? Is it Light-filled and Vibrant or is it filled with shadows and distortion?
The world around us is not the decision maker here. It is up to each of us to take some time right now and re-assess all that no longer fits into the future and cast it away.
No tears, no struggle or fear… keeping only the acknowledgment of how Beautiful and Amazing WE Truly Are.
Each of You Are that Swirling Energy Field of Creation and are now being asked to Trust Yourself. To Spiral upward and forward with full confidence and amazing beauty, to display to ALL that transformation is not only possible but necessary.
The North Atlantic Ocean has a tradition of reminding us that when the storms roll through, the gentle waves become white caps.
Last night there was a wonderful display of Thunder and Lightning rolling across the landscape, to disappear somewhere out in the vast ocean. Reminding me that all of the storms we are facing now, will also diminish and leave only their damage and telltale waves of passing through.
The Stormy Sea of this current virus, of which I refuse to speak its name, has rendered us all limited in our daily journeys. Filling us with apprehension and questioning which may take many years to be resolved.
However it is the moment to moment realizations, of the simple things we have taken for granted, that begin to play in our minds to either make us more grateful or agitated.
It is a time of real deep self-reflection, in which we might find where we lost our sense of value, or perhaps for some the moment of its super inflation.
How long have we been taking for granted so many simple everyday products or the energy exchange we have with others, that we may not even know by name.
It is now a world of Either/Or and not one of being comfortably numb anymore.
Let us now look again at the Oceans of the World, which have witnessed the whole evolution of humanity… They still remain the same in their power to carry on, in spite of the severity of the storms which destabilize them. Never surrendering, always flowing and enduring everything that is cast their way.
So too are we able to do the same… We are resilient and consciously aware, in order to survive all that Life has to bring upon us. We are endowed with not only our minds to perceive and create newness for the benefit of all, but also to bring to those who are suffering, great messages of hope.
So as the Stormy Sea within you rises and falls, be gentle and kind to everyone. We know not their story, yet we are all scattered along the pages of this one.
One Love… One Heart Charlie Riverman Bergeron 3.30.20
