The Inca Prophecy
by Peruvian Spiritual Messenger Willaru Huayta

“We have been waiting five hundred years. The Inca prophecies say that now, in this age, when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth will awaken. The eagles of the North cannot be free without the condors of the South.

Now it’s happening. Now is the time. The Aquarian Age is an era of light, an age of awakening, an age of returning to natural ways. Our generation is here to help begin this age, to prepare through different schools to understand the message of the heart, intuition, and nature. Native people speak with the Earth. When consciousness awakens, we can fly high like the eagle, or like the condor…

Ultimately, you know, we are all native, because the word native comes from nature, and we are all parts of Mother nature. She is inside us, and we are inside her. We depend totally on the Earth, the Sun, and the Water. We belong to the evolution of nature in our physical bodies. But we also have a spiritual body that comes from the Sun, not the Sun you can see with two eyes, but another Sun that lies in another dimension, a golden Sun burning with the fire of spiritual light. The inner light of humans emanates from this spiritual source. We came to Earth from this Sun to have experiences on Earth, and eventually we will return to this Sun. We are Children of the Sun.

The most important thing now is to awaken the consciousness in a positive form. The ascended masters have returned to unify the consciousness of the children of Earth through their messages of unity, harmony and love for this new solar era. We thank the masters of the White Brotherhood for guiding us and facilitating the communication with other worlds in this message to all seekers of the Light.” Look for God in others.“Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.” (end)

“In many indigenous cultures, Star beings are called “Rainbow People”, the rainbow race of colors living in peace and harmony on earth. When a Qero high priest from Peru was asked . . . , he explained that the Star Beings/Rainbow People are all of us. We are entering an age of meeting ourselves again, called the Taripaypacha. Our star essence is an elaborate light-coding system in DNA. Our DNA is light, color, and sound. We are re-connecting to our star selves and entering self-empowerment. This allows us to connect our light body with the advanced beings who can guide us to understand more of the higher dimensions of true being and divine light.” – from Stargate by James Jereb

Sinking Into Neutral… (Part I)

You just have no idea!

My life has done a 180 in 6 weeks time!! I went from chronic exhaustion to boundless energy for a multi-verse of major life changes–simultaneously! And I can still laugh, and talk and joke and seem to be able to handle it all.

Every step along the way has had its miracle, has created a spiritual thesis of sorts, handling this multi-verse of experiences pretty much in tact–by trusting, by feeling the signs, and being able to instantly suss out the next best action to spin into motion… until another sign comes along.

And now I have had an awakening that I’ve been feeling bubbling up for several days: I’m sinking into neutral…and I feel like I’m suffocating.  A literal embodiment of buying a new home which is “upgraded with neutrals.” While I can see beauty in them, I feel they draw the life energy from me!

So this evening I stand in my pastel blue,  lavender and white bathroom, thinking about my lavender-white colored living room, and deep green and white bedroom balanced with a wood clad wall… I recognize the ethereal space I created here which I loved…but have also been suffocating in (size and breadth)… and what I’ve been feeling for days and hit me full force tonight…after years of relentless inner craving for a larger home and outdoor space…I have one, just like that…and I’m surrounded by earth-tones. (Gasp!)

For days my husband I have been talking about how to make it our own…and even he expressed the desire to paint our new bedroom the same color as we’ve had it for years! And as I contemplate the changes I’d like to make to this room and that…I begin to question, am I supposed to be bringing that energy to the new house? Some how I feel…No. Yet that is not what my ego wants!  What? My ego?? Really??? I’m not seeing how in this moment…but I feel that is truth.

Okay,  now I’m confused!

Did I say “an Upgrade to NEUTRAL”????? ! Are you/Am I saying that the mass’ love affair with Neutral is an Upgrade?? Now I don’t mean to offend, but I have long felt strongly (really, STRONGLY?…could be ego…hhmmm) that Neutral has a low vibrational frequency. This is going to take me quite a while to feel my way through!!!

Tarot CardGood Advice – The Hierophant

Have you ever struggled to conform to what others expect of you?

Perhaps you’ve struggled to meet your parent’s expectations for you, educationally or career-wise, because you simply wanted to do something else? Perhaps your spouse or lover likes you to behave in a certain way and you don’t like it?

The issues about what is right and wrong for you personally are of greater importance when The Hierophant appears in your reading.

For example, you may feel that fidelity and the tradition of marriage is important to you, and your lover is prepared to live together but not as man and wife, and this troubles you.

Perhaps there are many feelings, views, opinions and principles that you are having trouble expressing and living by, and suppressing them is causing internal conflict.

The Hierophant often represents a teacher or wise counsel – someone you may choose to turn to for help and guidance.

If you are struggling to be true to yourself, it can be very therapeutic to seek the comfort and understanding of someone who you feel able to express your REAL thoughts and feelings to.

Sometimes, we can feel trapped by someone or a situation, but in reality we have created the situation ourselves by denying what we really want or who we really are.

They say it can be difficult to see the reality of your own situation from within it, so when this kindly and spiritually comforting card appears in your reading, it could be suggesting you seek out the help and guidance of someone you trust to give you an alternative perspective.

It could also be highlighting the importance of being true to yourself and not simply conforming to what others expect of you.

We don’t always have the answers and we don’t always know what’s best for us … in such circumstances, when The Hierophant appears in your readings, consider seeking advice, guidance or counseling to help you find those answers.

Love and Joy,

I’m still me…

For anyone who has ever faced a life-threatening diagnosis, or worse still prognosis, you probably have stood in a place of knowing, “I’m still me.” I know I did. Ovarian Cancer 11 years ago, no hair, no uterus… but  “I am still me.”  And for those of you who haven’t, I hope you find an easier way of gaining this perspective, this gift.

My friend and fellow blogger TAS is sharing her gift of perspective, in a beautiful, and all too comprehensible post:  I’m still me….

Time for a little cheer…..

I want to share this wonderful post on a much enjoyed blog… Thanks again, Slo!

Jon Stewart Interviews Jesus

Thank you to Jan Phillips for this extraordinary perspective and wisdom:

Jon Stewart...The Daily Show

I woke up last night to the sound of laughing and realized I’d fallen asleep with the TV on. It was 3 AM and I knew it was Jon Stewart but I had to fumble around for my glasses to see who his guest was. Unbelievable! It was Jesus, in his robe and all. His nose was bigger than I thought, his skin a lot darker, but his eyes were more piercing than I’d ever imagined. It was like light came out instead of going into them.

John was making some joke about both of them being Jews and Jesus, after laughing harder than I thought he would, said quite seriously to Jon, “Yeah, that’s one of the weirdest things, isn’t it? How could they forget that?”

Jon was all over him with questions from the daily news. What was his take on the whole Mosque/Ground Zero fiasco? Jesus said he’d seen some newscasts on the story and couldn’t believe the drama and fear it was bringing up. “They want to build a public building for prayer, education and community gathering. That’s a good thing. A better thing perhaps, would be the construction of an interfaith building, There’s room for everyone, and it’s these distinctions between religions that’s causing all the problems in the first place.”

Jon looked incredulous. “An interfaith building??”

“Yes, a multi-tasking mosque, with a synagogue, chapel and meditation hall in it. A building where people of different faiths come together to make a better world together. That’s the point of religion right? It’s not about doctrine. It’s a plan for action, an opportunity to be a bigger force for good. Religion is just the map. Faith is the real adventure.”

“I don’t know….” said Stewart, making one of those funny mouth movements he does after hearing a strange idea.

Jesus pipes in, “What could be better in that spot than a building that represents, by its very structure, a coming together, a new vision that goes beyond religious borders? It’s like taking a good idea and making it great. The real prophets of the day know this. Where are their voices? Why aren’t you interviewing them?”

“Hmm, I thought I was,” says Stewart, tapping his pencil on the desk.

“You know why you have border issues here? Because you believe the borders are real, like they MEAN something. Muslin against Christian, Mexican against American, Republican against Democrat-all those borders are made up. You put up walls to defend your ideas-and not even your OWN, but ideas passed down to you from someone else-and then you make other people look like demons. It’s no wonder this country is in a state of collapse. You don’t even get it how connected you are. You’re like five fingers on a hand who think they’re separate and make up reasons why not to get along.”

Jon sat there with his mouth open.

“You’re like children playing war games. You spend all your time, all your energy attacking the “other side” instead of realizing you need to bridge the two sides in order to get across to a higher level of thinking. Even news shows are at war. Look at how you make fun of FOX. What light does that add to the world? All the time you could be giving to real visionaries, all the ways you could be role-modeling good behavior, showing the audience how it really WORKS to bring great and opposing minds together, and you sit there poking fun at another station. That’s really enlightened, isn’t it?”

This was the first time I’d ever seen Jon Stewart speechless. He looked like an embarrassed 6th grader. No pencil tapping now. More like a puppy with his tail between his legs.

“What in the world are you people doing? The ones who call themselves “religious” are often the most immature, the most judgmental and intolerant. What is THAT about? That’s exactly the opposite of what every religion teaches. And I mean EVERY religion,”

Jesus said, as he looked away from Stewart and spoke right to the camera.

“All the religions say two basic things,” he said, holding up his fingers in a peace sign.

“First, there is no distance between you and this one you call God. God is the creative force behind all things. It’s invisible, but you are the manifestation of it. I’m telling you, the Sistine Chapel should have been a mirror.”

The audience laughs, but Stewart stares into those deep eyes of the Nazarene.

He goes on, ” You are the eyes, the hands, the feet of that creative force. That energy is in you. It’s called your breath.” He holds up his index finger and taps on it a few times. “That’s the first thing. Don’t think there’s some man out there pulling strings. Grow up. This civilization-if you can call it that-is YOUR creation. This earth, it is not a bunch of resources to be exploited. It is not to be owned. It is your mother, the womb that you sprang from. You are its consciousness, its neural cells. The whole earth is the organism that you belong to. You did not come down to earth, you came up from earth, as I did. Its well-being is in your hands. Can you be proud of what you’re doing? Are you going to be the ones who kill it off, after all that talk about pro-life?”

Jesus was getting a little worked up, like that day he stormed through the temple turning over the merchants’ tables. Jon cut to a commercial, “And we’ll be right back to hear the 2nd basic thing from our guest tonight, ladies and gentlemen, the Jewish prophet Jesus of Nazareth. Stay tuned…”

They were laughing about something when they returned from the commercial, Jesus stretched out in his chair with his long lanky legs covered by his tunic, his sandaled feet hidden under the desk.

“OK,” Jon says, “You were saying there were two things. Let me see if I got this right. There’s no bearded guy up there on a cloud. That God we talk about and fight over is the creative force inside us and around us? It’s invisible and we’re like….(a long pause) its shadow?”

“Not exactly,” says Jesus. We’re like the physical form of the same energy. The ice cube version of water or steam. Same elements, different form. The sea and the iceberg. You’re all icebergs in the Sea of God,” he said, half-laughing at his own quaint metaphor. “But the problem is you don’t realize that underneath it all, you’re all connected. There’s just one big iceberg with a lot of tips. The truth is, you’re Creation continuing the co-creation of Itself.”

“Oh my,” says Stewart. “Let’s leave that discussion to Bill Moyers, What about number two? What’s the number two thing we’re supposed to know?”

Jesus holds up his two fingers again, tapping the tip of his middle finger. The camera zoomed in so closely on him I could see a scar on his forehead. “It’s not so much what you need to know-that’s part of the problem, all these peoples’ belief systems. That’s what gets you in trouble. No one has to believe in me to get to heaven. A…there is no heaven to get to and B, it’s not what you believe but how you act that matters. If anyone learned anything from reading that Bible they should have picked up that one. There’s 3000 references to helping the poor in there. But let me get back…”

“Yes,” says Stewart. “The second thing..”

“The second thing is this: forget everything you ever learned in any holy book and just treat everyone like a brother and a sister. I mean that literally. If it were your brother coming across the border…your sister with cancer and no health care….your child unable to get an education….your mother with no food in her house. And even further, your brother who was gay or hated gays, your sister who was a corrupt politician, your brother who bombed an abortion clinic, your sister who got an abortion. What does it look like to love unconditionally? To bridge differences, to come together over what we can agree on? Can you get through one day without thinking you’re better or less than another? That’s the thing to strive for. That is living faithfully.”

“But…but…” says Stewart. “What about the Tea Partyers, the terrorists, what about Fox News and hate crimes?”

“If you think they are so different from you, be the opposite of what you think they are and enact that powerfully in the world. Don’t focus on who’s wrong. Just be a greater force for good.”

“Not focus on who’s wrong? How could I do my show?”

“Exactly. Remember what Gandhi said? Be the change you want to see in the world?”

“Sure. I have that quotation on my refrigerator.”

“Well, it’s time to take it further. You’re evolving as a people. You’ve come through the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the wrongly named Period of Enlightenment. You’re now in the Information Age. You are growing your consciousness. In the physical world, you have Olympic marathon trainers who run 10 miles or more a day. They spend every waking hour in training, eating the right foods, researching the right clothing and equipment, working out, following a discipline. And in the metaphysical world, the spiritual world, you have people doing the same-they are your mystics and prophets-engaging in spiritual practice, accelerating their wisdom, expanding their consciousness, transcending judgment and radiating love into the world. You might be in that category.,.”

Stewart does one of his choking, ahem things, putting his hand over his mouth. “Out of the question,” he says frankly. “I thrive on judgment.”

“Good to know yourself. You’re all evolving at different rates. In the fall, when you look at a maple tree, you see leaves that are green, yellow, orange and red. They don’t all change at the same time. And that’s what makes life exciting. You all know different things. That’s why you need each other. Like that guy Ken Wilbur said, “You’re all right, only partly so.”

Stewart nods his head in agreement, tapping his pencil on the table again.

“But back to Gandhi. I agree with what he said, but I’ll say it a different way, just to shake things up a bit, which I love to do. By the way, it’d make a great bumper sticker:

Be the God you want to see in the world.”

“Oh-oh, sounds blasphemous to me,” says Stewart.

“You know as well as I do, every good idea starts out as a blasphemy.”

“OK, great, we’re out of time,” says Stewart, as the camera swings over for a shot of the audience. They’re all standing, some crying and laughing at the same time, the most incredible look of collective awe I’ve ever seen. And Jesus walks over like Jay Leno and starts shaking hands with them. What a night!”

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISION, JAN PHILLIPS!

Go Google Yourself!

Do you ever Google yourself? It’s a good idea to do from time-to-time. Today I actually discovered 1 other woman with my name, the only other woman with my (married) name actually, who happens to also be from this area, and is a holistic health adviser and yoga instructor. Now, I’m neither of those, however both these arenas are very much akin to my worldview and resonate with who I am. Coincidence? Vibrations within a name? … I digress.

So in Googling myself this morning I came upon an article I wrote back in 1998 for The Avatar Journal. I read it with interest as I knew where it was going, however I had forgotten some of the insights I gleaned from the experience I wrote about. Finding this was a small gift unto itself, as I caught a glimpse of a former, yet very familiar self, appreciating the self-awareness and growth that takes place when you are paying attention…

Spring 1998

What Do You Think Feel About Semantics?

Many years ago, I held the position of Personnel and Office Manager for a mid-sized importing business. I reported directly to the controller, who, by the way, considered his title a summarized job description. Despite this fact, we got along because he treated me with respect and turned to me for input. I remember him fondly.

Despite these fond memories and despite working closely with him for seven years, one incident stands out. It came to mind the other day as I was re-reading something in Section II of The Avatar Course.

For his review, I had given the Controller a key letter I had written. Everything was acceptable to him except for my choice of one word. I had concluded the letter with my recommendation: “In light of…I feel…” My boss told me that feel did not sound professional. According to him it should be replaced with think.

I made the change but was disturbed by a sense that it was apparently unacceptable to be perceived as feeling. From then on each time I wrote something in my business woman identity, I had to stop when I naturally would have written feel and replace it (reluctantly) with think. It felt like I was out of integrity with myself, somehow telling myself that it was not okay to feel in the office. I had been given a picture, of what I should be to carry around when I was at work. I continued to use the word think so as not to create waves in what appeared to be an accepted attitude in business.

Several years later I took The Avatar Course. Upon returning to the business world after the course, now in a position with another firm, I faced the word feel from an even deeper, experiential perspective which one discovers during The Avatar Course. Again working within the parameters of the editorial edict to write as a professional, I felt the misalignment between my inclination to feel and the prescribed think stance. Then a realization hit: I believe.

Initially I would write I believe with some hesitation. Would this be acceptable in the business realm? Later it flowed from my pen naturally without any sense of creating a conflict between my professional self vs. me. I don’t know whether I discreated this dichotomy of selves, the idea that professionals prickle at the notion of feeling, or just created that believing was open to the reader’s interpretation.

Of course, the entire question was my creation in the first place. While it may seem a small matter that one statement from a former boss led me on an expedition in experiencing a separate artificial identity, one that never felt (there’s that word again) true to me. Avatar helped me to bring these separate selves together, in harmony. I no longer had to be anything but me. What a relief!

So I am left wondering: is it just a case of semantics, or is it more? What do you believe?
