Breaking Open

Breaking Open

Breaking Open

Not long after our return from our Soul Food Journey to the UK, I had what I’m calling a breaking open.

A parking cop was in the process of giving us a ticket for the scooter and I managed to talk her out of it. No small feat in San Miguel 😁. I then proceeded to hurry to leave the parking spot. Turning to exit on the three wheeled scooter, I caught a big yellow metal road divider with my front left wheel and went down breaking my collarbone.

And boy, did grace show up.

I jumped to my feet.  Right away, a man ran out and picked up the bike for me. David came out immediately. A good friend who is also a physician had been sitting with us, checked me out and he and his wife drove me to the local hospital for an x-ray, while David road the scooter home and picked up our car. Another doctor friend called one of the best orthopedic surgeons anywhere, and he met me within 10 minutes of arrival in his clinic 45 minutes away.

So only five hours after the accident, I was in surgery. A titanium plate was installed, and I awoke from surgery as if I had been in a lovely sleep.

What is the breaking open you might ask? (other than my collarbone 😁)

  1. A Greater Connection to the Divine

Three weeks into what will be a several month healing process I’ve necessarily given myself time to rest. In that state of openness, I feel a greater connection to the divine source that is always with me.

2. Receiving More

And I’ve had to open up my ability to receive even more. David has lovingly assisted helping me get dressed, wash my hair and of course prepare fantastic food. And dear friends and neighbors have brought food, flowers and sent lovely notes.

3. Loving Stillness Everyday

At the moment,  I cannot physically do things I might otherwise be doing. And I need rest to assist the healing. There is a stillness in that rest, in just being, that is some of the soul food I need.

4. Allowing the Divine to Lead

I’ve been really focused on getting myself out of the way to allow spirit/the divine/source to lead. I couldn’t have used my will to make what happen run as smoothly and easily as it did. The shock I experienced necessitated that something other than my will prevail.  Grace is relentless and always available no matter what the circumstances.

5. A Greater Feeling of Gratitude 

In the deepening of gratitude for all the love from friends and the Divine, my soul has been deeply fed. What a terrific blessing a broken collarbone can be, don’t you think?

 

In love and gratitude,

Susan

Help Me Shed My Tears of Sorrow Prayer

Help Me Shed my Tears of Sorrow Prayer

It’s excruciating to witness the natural disasters that are occurring all around us. From the earthquakes here in Mexico, to the hurricanes and fires that have taken so much from so many in the US, it makes us wonder how we can as individuals and communities live in a world that has become so frighteningly unstable.

When we collectively shed our tears of sorrow together, there is a vast compassion that arises reminding us of our human frailty and the living love alive in each of us now.

 Prayer

Oh Holy Sacred Family,

I call upon my angelic allies, my loving ancestors, and the pure essence of life itself to hold my heart.

So many people and things I have loved are broken, are gone.

I ask for the remembrance in my body, within my mind of the foundational strength that I know I come from, that I know I am, to manifest in ways miraculous.

May my blood know the song of this strength.

May my vision be moved to see beyond the dust and rubble before me into what this love of being can recreate so that beauty in new ways can be restored,  

So that new ways of being, new homes can be built with wisdom and joy.

Beloveds, help me to shed my tears of sorrow so fully that I know the sacred strength that I am in new ways.

Lift me holy brothers and sisters that I might see beyond and know that goodness will once again prevail.

There is a rebalancing afoot now of the ecologies that actually sustain all life upon the planet.We send this in love from our hearts to yours. May we all find strength in this time of uncertainty.

Love, Susan and David

Below is an excerpt from supportive “Friends From Far Away”, actual beings not from earth, who are from the family of love.

Loving information is available, as many of you know, from a variety of sources in order to support us as we navigate our lives. As we undo the false conditionings that we thought were the truth of our lives, we free ourselves to become one with All Life.

From Our Friends From Far Away

There is a quickening resulting in an acceleration of environmental events taking place. As you have rightfully observed the nature/ the intelligence driving the fires (in California) has within it a particular ferociousness that is worthy of note because some not all can avoid the righteous overturning and rebalancing of values required for the necessary humblings needed to reconnect those willing to the actuality of Foundational Life, what humans euphemistically call nature.

Nature is the word you have all created that describes the illusion of separation between the living systems that sustain you and the familiar but deadening notion of separation from life itself.

As you know, there is no nature and you. There is just you in the All of Life.

This separation we refer to stems all the way back to the choice that established the fantasy of free will as a foundation of human life. However, we will use the word nature because it is convenient and will assist in helping to explain the rebalancing that is going on.

The ferocity of the burns is indicative of the thoroughness through which these changes are taking affect. There will be ensuing economic turmoil as a result of these fires and floods. The engines of economics are driven dominantly by the hungry illusions that money creates security. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Place your imagination within your minds of those sad souls returning to the dust of their dreams and you will get a sense of how that illusion of money and security in all times, but particularly this time, has proven itself a fantasy.

There is a purposefulness to the intelligence driving the fires.  It is to remind people of what truly matters. Not the matters they have invested in with their minds, but the matter of their heart and its foundation of truth through knowing.

Environmentally the earth will by necessity promote disasters, over turnings, chaos, so as to promote rebalancing of the ecologies that actually sustain all life upon the planet. The fires and floods most recently occurring are evolutionary necessities required to bring forth new ways of being that are not simply thin versions of old ways.

Those transformed through the dramatic events of the present are never lost but reunited with the banked essence of themselves returning home to the roots of their being with the gold of sacred knowing further enlivening their unique comprehension of the sacred wholeness that in truth they are.”

We’d love to hear from you. Please leave your comments below.

Not the Surrender You Think

Our blog last Sunday was about surrendering to the Divine, Source, Spirit first in order to inform us before we act. Some might refer to it as acting from “thy will not my will.”

We had one comment from a childhood friend who completely disagreed “No disrespect intended, but I could not possibly disagree more fundamentally. Especially now…”

We are not for one moment suggesting surrendering to injustice and ignorance. On the contrary the “surrender” we refer to enables the best kind of fuel to promote real evolution and revolution.

To promote genuine long-lasting change requires a radicalization of thinking. Bullies need to be overpowered with muscle and actions through intention fueled by energies beyond our personal “thinking” ability.

This is not a time to stand down but a time to stand up with strength, wisdom and the willingness to act.

We are in a time where we must draw on all the wisdom available to us. Especially now…

Please share with us your divinely inspired acts.

Time to Surrender

It’s time to surrender our Will and be lead by the Divine.

There are many ways we protect ourselves from the greatness of life and possibilities that surround us. One way is by creating negative self-fulfilling prophecies that block our divine expression.

We have seen what happens when we create negative self-fulfilling prophecies, the kind where you have a bad feeling in your gut and some form of negative outcome comes true.

What negative self-fulfilling prophecies are running inside you that have been let loose and never ended that are in the way of your connection to your sacred blueprint and the rich passionate abundant and creative life you know is possible?

Have you had an imagined fear or a negative belief that you let run the show?

These negative self-fulfilling prophecies feel like a subtle friction that show up as a form of doubt where we forget about our sacred connection.

What can we do to move beyond that friction?

We can choose to call in a blessing to the noisy self -destructive negative creative patterns that cause us to stumble and feel like we can’t get to the state of the most loving and exciting vision of our lives.

Feel these places of friction, doubt and imaginary fear where there is no evidence to back it up. When you feel into those places and that line of energy and honor their presence then say the following prayer.

Prayer for Ending Negative Self Fulfilling Prophecies

As you address the fear say:

“Bless You and No More- I declare these energies to be complete and ask that these systems be replaced with love, wholeness, and holiness once again within me where the sacredness of this body comes home to itself.

Unlimited by my willfulness on this day, in this moment, I surrender my will in all the ways I protect myself from the greatness of life that surrounds me.

I release my will to reunite with the godhead, our Father, Mother, God. I let go and allow my love to prevail within me all the way to my cellular, electrical and structural fields.

I ask this for the highest good of all concerned. And to all of my ancestors I extend this blessing the reuniting of the holy of holies I am experiencing for it is my true birthright to be reunited with the source of all life, holy of holies, God, the Divine.

I offer this as a gift to all beings connected to me wherever they may be and whatever form they are in.

I take this breath now knowing that the spirit of resurrection comes within me and I rise up and step away from the deadness I have carried thinking it was my life.”

In love,

David and Susan

Navigating in Uncertain Times

Change is afoot- no shit! We have been moved by the enormous range of shocked responses to the US election. There is a vast sorrow filled ache present in America that has been there for quite a few years.

Many haven’t wanted to see the turmoil, sorrow, suffering and divisiveness that have been in the hearts of so many across the United States.

What kind of world do you want to live in? We want to live in a world where compassion rules. The souls that we are, are vastly bigger than any momentary political social moment. It’s that vastness that allows us to be compassionate in the face of fear and uncertainty.

How To Navigate Uncertain Times

We are witnessing many who are shocked, suffering, sad, grieving, and also euphoric. Getting overrun by emotions clouds our clear connection to our own soul wisdom. We miss getting our own prescription of knowing that we can use to navigate stormy waters. You have a prescription of knowing just waiting to download into you.

How do we clear the way?

First- Dealing with Shock

In shock we move into survival and forget to see the big picture not just the systems that aren’t working or the suffering that’s around us and in our own hearts. In shock we cannot see a clear path before us.

If you want to learn more about how to cope with shock get our Free Survival Guide- What to Do When Your World Falls Apart.

Second- Make Friends with Uncertainty

When we really allow for uncertainty and risk what we know, we open ourselves up to possibility and shift. There is an abundance of opportunity and a pathway to joy if we are willing to open to the bigger life that we are.

Third- You Are Not Alone

Our thoughts and fears not only divide us from one another, but make us feel separate from Source. The very spirit in the air is filled with love. When we open up our hearts and allow the love that is present to come in, we will receive the love and guidance we need to not feel separate. We have to fold in the sacred into this achiness because it will help us be clear and know what to say and how to be.

And most importantly – Steer with your wisdom, heart and integrity.

We have been conditioned to think and feel in ways that aren’t true to our hearts and souls. There is an abundance of knowing just waiting for all to call on. We can learn when we open our hearts and grow our wisdom how to heal ourselves and the planet. What a great opportunity lies before us. Fierce wisdom clarity and love will heal us.

And If it’s difficult to see you way through these stormy seas, please post in the comments or contact us.
We are here to help!

In love and possibility,

Susan and David

Guadalupe -The Game Changer

Guadalupe -The Game Changer

About a year ago we began to have some disturbances in our neighborhood here in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico.

One morning, we discovered very large graffiti covering about 20 feet wide by 10 feet tall on an exterior wall of our house.  In addition there had been a theft at a neighbor’s house. We talked with neighbors and some thought it might be good to hire a night watchman, but no consensus was reached.
