The New Earth

Separated from Birth… from Mother Earth

September 19, 2013

This post was written as a speech for a Toastmasters project, so feel free to insert some gestures and a healthy injection of passion while reading. I joined Toastmasters to get over my fear of public speaking and now I’m beginning to quite like the idea of speaking to people who have to listen to what I’ve got to say… and it seems I have a lot to say!

“I was trying to think back to how my love for nature began, and I realised it wasn’t so much a specific moment, as it is an inherent bond… like a baby who still remains connected to her Mother after birth, even though the physical umbilical has been cut.

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of living on the mountainside. My sister and I used to try eat the plants and flowers to see what they tasted like – I swear the aftertaste of some of them still lingers. I remember making a nest on one of the rocks outside and placing eggs I had taken from my fridge in it, thinking a bird will come and sit on them and hatch some chicks. The next day the eggs were gone… and no chicks.

From a young age I didn’t much like the human race. I saw us as destroying our planet and had more of an affinity with animals. I wanted to be a dolphin trainer, but then decided I didn’t like the idea of dolphins being in captivity. My science expo project was about laboratory testing on animals – entitled “Vivisection: are humans humane?” And then as I grew older I realised animals weren’t the ones that needed the help, people were. We must be really suffering if we can cause this much suffering to each other and the planet. If I was going to help change the world (no small feat), it needed to start with me… and I needed to start liking humans, in fact loving them because essentially Divine Love and connection are the keys to a thriving future.

Nature is not something separate from us, we are nature. When we disconnect from nature we disconnect from our selves.

“Most people are on the world, not in it – having no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them – undiffused, separate and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate”  – John Muir.

Our planet is a living, breathing organism. Everything is alive with pure consciousness and when we connect to nature we align with and tap into that consciousness, connecting to a higher aspect of who we are – our true essence. We subconsciously activate a forgotten memory of the Love and Oneness that we really are.

For me, being in nature is like going back home. I feel a deep sense of belonging, at peace with all that is. Any stresses feel insignificant in comparison to the vastness of beauty and wonder that surrounds me.

Mother nature helps us to connect with the feminine right side of our brain, giving us fresh perspective, new ideas, creative flow and reconnecting us to our hearts.

Not only does she benefit the mind, heart and spirit, but the body too.

The Earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its surface and because we contain a large number of charged ions (electrolytes) in our blood and body fluids, our bodies are naturally conductive so when we come directly into contact with the ground (through walking, sitting or lying) we absorb these electrons into our body, bringing it to the same potential as the earth. Also known as Grounding.

Our immune system functions optimally when we have an adequate supply of electrons so the health benefits are numerous. As well as being the best (and most affordable) antioxidant, it also protects us from the disruptive Electro Magnetic Fields we’re exposed to on a daily basis.

Traditionally shoes were made of leather, which conducts electrons. However, modern day rubber and plastics are electrical insulators and therefore block the beneficial flow of electrons from the earth to your body, as of course do our roads and paving. Every living being needs the earth for balance and energy harmonization!

Throughout our existence humanity has been closely bonded with nature. It’s only in recent times that we’ve created a man-made environment that’s not only destroying our own health, but the health of our planet. The chaos and destruction is so huge because we relate to nature to being something outside of ourselves. “the more we dominate, own and control, the more separate we experience ourselves. And the more separate we experience ourselves, the greater the urge to dominate, to own, to control” – Charles Eisenstein

We are inextricably connected to every life form on this planet… Animate or inanimate, everything is energy vibrating at different frequencies and speeds. And because our thoughts are high frequency energy they have a direct impact on your life, your environment, humanity and the entire planet.

 

You may have heard of Dr Emoto who introduced the idea that water not only reflects the outside world (as in a placid lake or still pond acting as a mirror) but also reflects the consciousness surrounding it. The experiments to discover this included bottles filled with water that were either under a positive or negative influence. Words of love and encouragement created beautifully symmetrical crystals. Words of hate, anger and criticism were discoloured and malformed. Considering that our bodies are between 50 to 75 % water, this says a lot about how are thoughts and words affect our health. And because we are a webstring in the web of life, affecting our planet too.

The future of our planet relies on us being in harmony with her. Living in balance within ourselves and within our environment. Nature provides… she is abundant with resources – water, food, shelter, energy and yet humanity struggles in lack. She teaches us and heals us… it’s up to us to connect to her wisdom and create a symbiotic relationship that has long been forgotten.

Be with nature, not just in it. listen to the wisdom within the stillness.

Walk barefoot on the beach and feel the deep connection you share.

Feel the strength and protection of the mountains, the cleansing breath of the wind.

We are one with all of life, and it’s time to remember that.”

2013: The big squeeze into expansion

April 1, 2013

In mid-2012 I wrote “What on Earth is going on? about how we’re moving into a new era and what that exactly means. Shortly after that it was the Venus Transit bringing us an opportunity to heal the feminine consciousness which I shared in “Can you feel the Change? Now a third of the way into 2013 after having entered the Age of Aquarius, some may be wondering, “Where is this so-called New Earth?” The old dies hard and below may be what some of you have been experiencing this year. 

We’re in the throes of great change and upheaval. The energy of an old paradigm is dissipating and we’re left feeling unsteady as we adjust to a new vibrational frequency.

The dust of an old world is still hanging over us, leaving us in the dark, not able to clearly see what lies ahead. The light is brighter but it’s shining in the corners of our unconscious minds, illuminating our shadow and bringing to light what needs to be brought into balance.

At times it may feel like we’re lost out at sea, treading water as we venture towards the unknown beyond the horizon. The sea is choppy and the more you resist and fight the currents, the harder the journey becomes. Your fears, doubts and antiquated beliefs will weigh you down and weaken your efforts of getting to shore. You’ll feel like you’re drowning if you don’t cut them loose. Embrace the unknown like a child, letting wonder and curiosity keep you light and buoyant.

There is no going back, what’s left behind is crumbling away and what lies ahead is whatever you choose to plant in your imagination. Allow the currents to wash through you and clear out the old debris, leaving you open to new possibilities. This isn’t a peaceful lake that you’re drifting down… it’s stormy, tumultuous and there’s nothing solid to hold onto. You have to BE that something solid – you’re out at sea on your own, with no one to blame anymore. You’ll be experiencing what you‘ve been projecting on the outside, on the inside now. It’s time to clean ship. Your emotions are intensified as you’re forced to face and embrace ALL aspects of yourself.

Although this may feel overwhelming at times and met with resistance and avoidance, you’ll soon discover the best way to get to shore is to surrender to the process and flow with the tide. Face what needs facing – forgive, let go and let the grieving process of what you’ve left behind crack open your heart to reveal your true power within.

Use your inner guidance and intuition to lead you to shore. Just because you can’t see what lies ahead yet, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Keep trusting that the more you’re willing to let go of the fears that are keeping you anchored to what you left behind, the smoother your journey becomes. There will be sea serpents and dragons to slay along the way, but with each encounter and swipe of your sword of courage, you’ll build more confidence and power until you move past them with greater ease.

You may experience vulnerability and instability as currents quicken and intensify but trust that this all part of awakening to your authentic self. There will be reefs in between where you get to rest and integrate your higher consciousness while enjoying the fruits of your hard work before you’re back treading more water. Sometimes it’ll feel like you’ve covered some distance only to feel pulled back again by the current and wonder if you’re making any ground.

It’s like peeling back the layers of an onion as we go in a spiral deeper and deeper to our core. Issues we may have thought we’d resolved re-appear with an extra layer of intensity and opportunity to clear more completely. Welcome this opportunity and trust that if you are feeling squeezed, it means you are growing – expansion is always preceded by contraction.

As our planet keeps shifting into a higher frequency we’ll feel like everything is speeding up… what used to take weeks to process can take days or hours. We’re moving through our stuff quicker which can feel all-consuming, yet we’re also manifesting quicker so be conscious of your thoughts, as they are the seeds of your future.

Our New Earth is like a computer operating system that has been upgraded but if you’re still running on old software, you’ll have incompatibility issues and eventually hang (get stuck). Your old programming is obsolete in this new paradigm.

While we’re in the process of ‘upgrading’ there’s a time of integration and of being in the void ­– and we’ll do anything not to sit in the unknown, we’ll dance around it in avoidance (a void dance). We don’t want to be in the dark, we don’t want to feel what’s not happy, joyful, blissful, certain, exciting. And we’ll analyse why we may be feeling out of sorts, give ourselves reasons and justifications… anything to not actually FEEL. And so it simply perpetuates. There’s power in the ‘I don’t know’, use it as a time to get to know who you are and what you want on a deeper level.

Feel it. Own it. Love ALL of you. We’re moving from the separation of duality into unity and Oneness… accept all polarities without judging them to be good or bad. Before anything was labelled, it simply was. Labels create division within and between our selves and the world. Accept and embrace all that you are with compassion and only then can you be free to be completely you.

The resistance is your ego fighting to hold on to what it knows and the more that gets illuminated, the more desperate it becomes at clinging on. When you notice you’re in resistance, ask yourself “what belief am I holding on to that is keeping me stuck?” What ‘BS’ story are you telling yourself? Your story will reveal the belief you are holding. (BS = Belief System!)

You are being called to live up to your highest potential… dissolve the walls, release the fear and let your heart and soul guide the way. No more hiding from yourself or the world, you are here for a reason and it’s time for your soul’s full expression.

Your head will continue to get in the way if you still believe that it is in the driver’s seat. It isn’t. Your heart is your power… it is the flame that will ignite any of your ideas and bring them to life. Dare to be braver than your fears. Dare to be freer than your limitations. Be the warrior that you are, with courage as your sword, cutting through the inner barriers and obstacles so to reach your home of infinite power and Love.

The energies are here to activate the wisdom of our heart-mind, reveal our light and learn to live in the world with our feet connected to Earth, our hearts connected to each other and the Divine Light flowing through us. We have access to every possible reality within us and we get to decide what that reality is. We can choose to run the old software with all the glitches and keep dancing around the void until we eventually crash. Or let go of that old programming and upgrade to the new heart-based OS.

All the while remember, you are the swimmer and you are the shore. There is no ‘getting there’, it’s more a matter of logging out of the old conditioning that caused you to forget who you truly are and why you are here. Be in your body, in your heart, in your truth. Don’t let the outside picture distort your inner knowing. Things may look and feel scattered and unsettled, but trust that soon after the dust storm, the dust comes to settle and new life begins to grow and flourish!

Are you resisting or allowing?

November 2, 2012

Whilst still wiping the sleep from my eyes after generations of catatonic slumber, I find myself hurtling at hyper-speed down the rabbit hole, shedding deep beliefs and connections to an old paradigm, and all the while trying to negotiate unknown terrain through the eyes of a newborn.

Hey, no one said it would be easy!

But it sure can be an exciting and wild ride if you get out of your own way.

There’s an upsurge of everything that needs purging in order for our planet and humanity to come into complete balance and harmony. Basically the sh!t is bubbling to the surface! That which needs to be revealed is being revealed to allow us to make new choices and decide how WE want the world to be, as opposed to being herded further down the road of suppression and separation.

The amount of chaos and our ability to handle these changes will be up to us as to how we react. Basically, we have two options – resist or allow? Do we create suffering for our selves by desperately trying to cling on to old beliefs and attachments because it’s what we know? Or do we rather trust in the bigger picture of our personal and planetary evolution and flow with the change, breaking apart our shackles as we go?

As the energy around us intensifies, so too does our sensitivity to our environment and our own truth. This gives us the opportunity to face our fears, our emotions and programs that are keeping us stuck in duality.

The irony of shifting into unity consciousness is that we first have to embrace the duality of where we are right now. In order for humanity and our planet to come together as the ONE that we are, we need to become whole within our selves first. To heal means to make whole. The only way to truly heal is to accept ALL that we are and not just the bits that we label good or acceptable. If we embrace the parts we like, but ignore or suppress the parts we don’t, we’re only creating further separation, disconnection and conflict within our selves. No changes are ever made in denial. We have to be honest so we can see where to dig in order to transform our gunk into gold.

On a soul level, we are already whole and perfect … we’ve just been anesthetized and have forgotten! When we bring the various aspects of who are together, and embrace ALL that we are – we re-Member. The more we learn to live in the present moment of Now (where there is no future or past to compare or judge ourselves) the easier it is to re-member.

Beneath all fears, judgements, and dis-ease lies our JOY… the essence of our true being. In order to fully express and experience our joy as a way of being, rather than a feeling we get in relation to an external event, we have to sift through the stuff that’s weighing heavily on top. By suppressing it all with food, alcohol, medication, and other avoidance strategies we’re just packing the pressure cooker so tight, that eventually something will give. And that’s the difference between the sh!t bubbling to the surface or imploding / exploding!

It’s called e-motion. There’s energy in all emotion. FEEL everything that arises in you, embrace it, use it as a wave to take you to your core. Allow it to wash away the debris of illusion so you can see what’s stuck beneath. When we numb our pain instead of experiencing it, we numb the joy as well. Facing our fears with the courage of our heart allows us to learn, evolve and walk through to the Light on the other side.

We’re moving from the head to the sacred heart… from the home of the ego into the home of Love. When we truly activate our hearts, the illusion of separation falls away, as fear and Love cannot co-exist. To fully open our hearts is to be vulnerable, is to experience all that we are and all that we feel and share our truth. The more we master this process of shifting into the heart, the higher our vibration becomes and the more we’re able to experience the sheer bliss that goes with it.

We’ve been trapped and suppressed in a system for so long now that we’ve forgotten who and how powerful we are. We’ve been programmed to not believe in our own magnificence. We punish our selves with damaging self-talk, substance abuse and unhealthy eating because that’s how we’ve learned to cope with our pain. We’ve been in auto pilot mode and the only way to not continue down the path of self-destruction is to take back the steering wheel and choose the course of LOVE. Embrace ALL that you are. Know that you ARE worthy, special and important enough to truly take care of.

You are not alone… we are all on this ride together… The difference is how we experience the journey.

You choose… Resist and eventually derail? Or Allow and let life show you the way back home to your heart?

Why it’s crucial to claim your power!

September 19, 2012

 

Our planet is undergoing immense upheaval at the moment… we all are. For so long now we’ve been living under the rule of oppressive forces, oblivious to the control they’ve had over us – from the food we eat to the beliefs and the decisions we make. Many are now waking up to the truth and demanding that things change. This is an exciting time in our history, yet also a chaotic one as resistance usually precedes any real change.

 

Often we’ll feel overwhelmed by the state of our planet, economy and the negative impact we, as humanity, are continuing to have on her. We tend to think “what difference could I possibly make?” and fail to realise that we ARE the difference.

We do have the power to change the world we live in. When we realise our true potential and step into responsibility instead of being the victim, that’s when things will really change. When we stop complaining about where we are as a race, and how it’s all a complete f@*k up, only then can we truly take back our power.

If we all decide that our reality is that the planet is going down the toilet, well then… flush… there it goes. It’s time to wake up, take ownership for what we’ve done and focus on a solution. The law of polarity insists that every problem has a solution – and the solution starts with us! As we step more fully into our own power and truth, we will naturally demand that things change in our environment.

The more that people are waking up, stepping up and showing up, the more that everything out of integrity is collapsing. We are the microcosm of the macrocosm… as we step more into our own authenticity and integrity, so we tip the scales of power from the dark to the light. We are all responsible for the momentum of that tipping, and it starts with claiming your own personal power and remembering the truth of who you are. You are here right now on planet Earth to help with this shift. You are that powerful and that important!

We may have days when we feel, “what’s the point?” and the point is that we’re here going through the chaos, making the changes we need to make on the inside, so that it reflects on the outside. Due to everything being energy, when we increase our own vibration, we increase the vibration of the planet, healing her and bringing her into balance and wholeness.

Having a WHY attached to any goal adds a deeper sense of purpose, compelling you to keep striving forward, knowing that your actions are fuelled by a greater vision. It gives me such joy and hope when I see people taking responsibility for their lives, facing their fears, taking the more challenging path of growth and speaking and living their truth. I see all you beautiful people, not only embarking on this journey for yourselves, but for Mother Earth, her creatures and the whole of humanity.

All the planet needs right now is for you to be you – the real you. To shine the light you’ve learned to mask. To be true to yourselves and others. To keep expanding your reservoir of power, increasing your vibration and inadvertently shifting the entire planet into the next dimension!

Can you feel the change?

July 17, 2012

It’s been just over a month since I published my last post What on Earth is going on?, in fact it was the night of the Venus Transit. Who would’ve thought that one planet would cause so much mayhem at a time when I was merrily tripping the light fantastic!

 

In order to bring the new feminine energy into balance with the masculine, it appears we’ve needed to heal the feminine consciousness first. Venus so graciously provided us with that energy – exposing any suppressed emotions and patterns, bringing to light that which still needed clearing. It’s been a time of integration, rest, reflection and re-evaluation.

For some it’s been an intense period, manifesting as emotional or physical discomfort, or both. You may have felt a sense of avoidance, wanting to shut out the world, not knowing your next step even though you thought you had it all figured out.

You may have been feeling caught between the old and the new. Flying high one moment, swept up in joy and connection, then dropping back down to clean up any unfinished business.

The veil is being lifted and it’s harder to hide in ignorance. The truth is finding its way through the cracks of fear and becoming impossible to ignore.
Either way, whether consciously or unconsciously, most have been feeling the great shift that is taking place as everything gets sped and stirred up. We’re all going through the process of purging, although being affected differently at different times. The veil is being lifted and it’s harder to hide in ignorance. The truth is finding its way through the cracks of fear and becoming impossible to ignore. Some feel a kind of midlife crises looming as they reassess their lives and what it is they’re here to do. It’s hardly surprising as Mother Earth is going through a ‘midlife’ crises of her own as she shifts into a new frequency.

It’s extremely apparent that our planet is in chaos. Yet because us human beings have been living in separation consciousness for so long, we forget that we are the microcosm of the macrocosm… what we do to our selves, we do to others and the planet, and vice versa. Even our thoughts that vibrate at the highest frequency affect the vibration of the Earth. We are not only accountable for our own lives, but for the wellbeing of our entire planet, simply by being who we are.

It’s easy to note the global change that is happening… economies, old belief systems and governments that are collapsing. The masses are starting to wake up and demand change, demand the truth. We’re taking back our power from the ‘powers that be’ who have been keeping us oppressed and asleep for so long. Pharmaceutical companies are being challenged, as well as large food corporations and banks. The old paradigm based on fear, control and separation is being questioned and brought to justice.

As challenging as these times are, the old has to break down to make way for the new. This is clearly happening on a global scale, yet we are the ones that are effecting this change. If you are reading this right now, chances are you have contracted to be here at this time to help shift the planet and humanity into the next dimension and it starts with your own personal shift.

This is a time of stepping into your own truth and power. You are being forced to take stock of what is real for you, what you need to learn from your past, forgive and let go of. Notice the areas in your life that are not working, and what it is that you need to acknowledge, face and transform in order to create the life you want.

Where is it that you need to step into your power more?

Where is it that you need to step into your truth more?

Where is it in your life that you are feeling uncomfortable?

Where can you change the patterns and behaviours that need changing in order to shift into alignment and integrity?

We are being compelled to step into our power, own who we are and what we are here to do. The ego is losing its grip as the heart takes over and rules our intelligence. We may feel as though we are being challenged on so many levels, whether it’s relationships, career or finances. Everything is being tested and if you’re not in integrity with your current situation, the illusion will break away to reveal the truth.

We are learning to communicate with honesty, which may be uncomfortable for those not yet in their hearts. We may want to hold on to our old ways for fear of change, but right now change is the only way through the chaos. Acceptance and surrender is what will make this transition an easier, more peaceful one – personally and globally.

As ideologies and belief systems are being challenged, be prepared to drop what you thought to be true in order to make space for that which resonates through your intuition and inner wisdom. Question everything you believed to be the truth and be open to gaining new insights and clarity, widening your perspective.

The caterpillar inside the cocoon needs to experience the darkness and pain of growing and getting stronger in order to push out into the light and fly towards freedom.

Honour where you are right now, as where you are is where you are meant to be. Allow your feelings, emotions and truth to surface so you can acknowledge all of you. The illusion of separation has taught us to resist our shadow selves, our flaws, our ‘dark side’. That we need to be a certain way and if we aren’t it means we are not good enough, not worthy. This has kept us playing small and from tapping into our true power and potential.

The liberation comes in acceptance of our shadow selves… when we accept the duality of who we are, we no longer resist and feel the need to wear masks. When we are in resistance we block ourselves from the flow and from fully experiencing all that we are. This is the key to loving our whole selves whilst moving from a paradigm of duality into one of unity. By loving and accepting ourselves for the perfection that we are, the ego has nothing to cling to and gives way to the truth of love being all there really is.

More so than ever, it’s time to step out of victimhood and into responsibility.

What can I acknowledge and take responsibility for so that I’m able to let go of the past and step into creation?

We hold the key to unlock the future of our planet and humanity simply through our own personal transformation. We are the change that will change our planet and it’s time we really got that!

Don’t fear the change, surrender to the inevitability of change and be the change that resides in your heart – your inner compass that will help navigate you through these rocky times.

Know that you are not alone and rather than just being sucked into the drama of your immediate situation, reach out to others. There is support all around you, whether it’s a professional or a friend. This is a time of coming together as One. Be present to this exciting time in history and reach out to your community with the gift of who you are.

Your intuition will be getting stronger and will help guide you to your purpose if it hasn’t yet already. Trust the synchronicities that are all around you. Nurture yourself, love yourself and share your self. You will feel less concerned about what others think of you, and more inspired to talk and walk your truth.

As you let go of the ego and the past, your future is like a blank canvas… nothing will feel like it used to.

What do you choose for yourself now that the old movie has lost its appeal? What do you choose for the planet?

We are writing a new script – make it one of love, unity, peace and whatever else you dream it to be.

Be gentle, compassionate and loving to your selves during this time. If you feel stuck in limbo, despondent or out of sorts, surrender and know this will pass. Focus on what you wish to create and let your imagination inspire and guide you to the other side. Don’t ever doubt your own significance and purpose. Your purpose is simply to awaken to all that you are and be the light that is needed to further tip the scales and bring upon this new era of heart consciousness.

 

With love,
Tracy
