Congratulations, We Just Got Another 5 Years Of The US Dollar

chinaSimon Black – It’s eerily befitting that at this very second, all of South China is frantically anticipating a major storm bearing down on the region.

In this part of the world they call them typhoons, which comes from the Chinese ‘tai fung’, meaning ‘strong wind’.

And strong they are. Here on the 33rd floor of my hotel in Kowloon right now, I can hear the wind whipping ominously as if it’s about to blow right through the windowpane.

Just across the border in Shenzhen, there’s an even stronger wind, blowing trillions of dollars of wealth right out of the system.

And more than that, it’s blowing away confidence.

Financial systems are based on confidence. Think about it– these governments and central banks have absolutely nothing tangible to offer.

They print up countless pieces of colored paper backed by nothing of value and pass it all off as ‘money’.

They rack up trillions worth of debt and act like it’s inconsequential.

Banks operate by keeping only a tiny fraction of their customers’ funds on reserve, loaning out the rest for wars, ghost cities, and bridges to nowhere.

These shaky nodes make up a perilously fragile financial system that is just barely held together by a very thin veneer of confidence.

In order for it to continue functioning, every participant in the financial system must have confidence. Or at least have confidence that everyone else has confidence.

Without confidence, the system collapses very quickly.

Think about what happened in 2008: suddenly the market lost confidence in the solvency of some of the biggest banks on Wall Street, and overnight the entire financial system was in crisis.

Confidence is everything. And China just lost it. Continue reading

Trusting In God Works

momentJohn Smallman – Today is a new day. Of course every day is a new day, but people often forget that as they plod through their daily chores earning their living. But enormous changes can occur in one day, or in an instant. You are free to make choices in every moment, and you do, but they are very often the same choices that you have been making for years, in almost complete unawareness. Become aware of your choices, each and every one of them, and then decide if you would like to maintain them or change them – from which shoe you put on first in the morning to whether you really want another cup of coffee or tea, to whether you want to change jobs, careers, or relationships. So many of your choices have become automatic, and yet your choices determine how adequately or inadequately your lives flow.

Make each day new by being aware of each choice you make, from the smallest to the largest. That does not mean just being aware that you have made a choice but discerning if it is really the best choice you can possibly make in this moment. Drifting through life is what occurs when you do not see all the choices that lie open before you in every moment. But you can become aware of the great variety of choices open to you by practicing discernment in your little choices – which shoe shall I put on first, and why – because it leads you into full awareness of what you are doing in each moment and that enables you to question the wisdom of that particular choice.

If you are not accustomed to being so aware of your daily routines in such detail, starting to become aware can seem like a very difficult task, but, with practice, as with all things, it becomes easier and then natural. It is a case of being present in every moment so as you raise a cup of tea to your lips you are aware of choosing to lift it so that you may take a refreshing sip, and then enjoy the sip, and then, with awareness, putting the cup down again. That kind of awareness of each moment has incredible healing power. Continue reading

Trust

Enlightened Beings – When you are grateful for this very moment of your life, you fall into having a natural trust for your future.  When you are trusting in the future of existence, great blessings will flow your way. The world around you may turn upside-down, yet with trust you’ll see that it is simply an entertaining play instead of a frightening nightmare.  With trust, you become so deeply rooted in existence that nothing can shake you.   This trust allows you to trustleave your house, adventure out into the world, and have new experiences with people that open your heart and fertilize your soul.   It is only with trust that you can have enriching intimate relationships that open your heart to a higher purpose, mission and love.  The more grateful you can be for what is here now, the easier trust effortlessly rises within you.   It is through trusting your future that you can see how devoted you are to your spiritual path and a master at practicing the art of letting go of control and going with the flow.

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.”  ~Benjamin Disraeli

The best way to grow your “trust muscles” is to first consciously let go of all tension that is currently holding in your body.  Check your jaw, breath, shoulders, back and anus.  Notice where you are holding on the most, and ask these parts to relax, trust the process of life and let go.  They may communicate a specific memory or trauma that they are holding on to from the past.  Just let this go and relax deeper into your heart center.  Let any fears or walls to the energy of trust melt, and surrender to a deeper experience of letting go, more than you have in your entire life!  It is only when we go beyond our normal comfort zones that we make any real progress.

Transfiguration

EnergeticSynthesisLisaReneeThe recent alchemical theme directs source energy inside our cells to excite themselves, fermenting within the flesh, causing divine illumination of the personality. The inner mitochondrial membrane is activated enhancing its ability to produce ATP, which generates intracellular light. This corresponds to the Transfiguration of the fleshly body or the integration of our ego/personality with the inner light presence. When the inner light shines on the histories of the ego mind recordings, it is similar to shining a bright flashlight on the skeletons in the closet. If you did not realize those skeletons were hiding in there, it can be shocking and painful to see. However, this forces transformation of the mental body to open into new dimensions of consciousness, which align us to levels of divine Gnosis.Gnosis signifies spiritual knowledge in the sense of mystical enlightenment or deep insight into our spiritual self.

On the path of Ascension, we evolve through many stages of evolution, which help us to reach increasing mystical levels of higher knowing. This is not linear and cannot be explained or proven through methods acceptable to mainstream scientists. The function of our Soul-Spirit activation is accessed through higher sensory perception, which stems from deep and powerful feelings in the initiated consciousness.

Once initiated, we have knowing and we cannot go back to not knowing. This fact of knowing changes our consent. When we are conscious and aware of the forces we are interacting with, we must make choices about what we are doing in our life. If we have knowing and we continue to make choices based on fear, we will suffer. The choices we make when operating from the internal knowing of an initiate, change everything we have ever known as an identity. We are catapulted to place ourselves on the altar of faith and trust, moving into the realms of the unknown, which force us into moral and spiritual dilemmas. Continue reading

Trust In Self

“Trust in the True Self strengthens over time into faith. Faith is the victory. Or, as Helen Keller said, “Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.” Let’s celebrate your light and our light this Solstice.” – I Lawrence

TrustGirlWalkingStickPathFlowerI woke up this morning with such a feeling of gratitude that I am alive, in a perfectly wonderful body, able to watch an incredible unfolding of events, and participate in a change of worlds. I know there are people who feel like they don’t belong in 3D, where there is pain, and inhumanity. It feels so abusive, and they dream of going ‘home’. I understand the longing, but I’m not into the idea that home is somewhere other than where I am.

I’m at home within my universe, acknowledging this journey as the ultimate experience. Where else would I want to be? Now, people might say that none of this experience is reality. That’s fine. If I’m an actor on the stage, then I’m putting my heart and soul into the play. This play is where the action is.

Like most of us, I have read the various versions of how this world ends and begins anew, but I haven’t seen it through inner vision. So it is a comfort to re-read Stuart Wilde’s words, offered a few years ago: “I was shown how it ends. I was very honored to see that. It was a happy ending, very clean. I understood why the meek inherit the earth, it made me cry for joy. They deserve it. It is all in a divine order, trust.” Continue reading

Embrace Your Fear

“Life offers no guarantees, no assurances that our love will be reciprocated, and no control over the outcome of our efforts. Living a big life, full of purpose, connection, and contribution, requires an unprecedented act of trust and vulnerability.” – D Mahle

I always wanted to belong; to feel connected, feel loved, feel alive. I wanted people to like me, to respect me, to recognize my contribution in the world. I wanted to do something worth remembering, to create something beautiful, to help heal the suffering. I wanted my life to matter. But I was afraid.

I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t feel my power. I didn’t trust my heart. I was anxious – afraid of failure, rejection, and isolation. And I felt stuck playing a small game in a big world that I knew needed my gifts, my skills, and my heart, now more than ever.

It wasn’t long ago that I discovered a lesson that is changing my life forever: When I believe that I am powerful, connected, and capable of love – beyond my wildest imagination – I am.

My fears are all illusions; ancient stories that my younger self created to ‘protect’ me from harm. The only way to release them is to honor them; to tell that younger place within me that I am safe now and I no longer need them to protect me.

When I deny or fight my fear, it strengthens its choke-hold. When I embrace it and give it space to breathe, it loses its power over me.

Fear is rooted in shame. Brené Brown defines shame as “the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging.” Shame is fueled by silence and the illusion of our fundamental separateness. Continue reading
