Stop Seeing Yourself Through The Past

Questions that won't go away

Stop Seeing Yourself Through The Past

We’ve been inspired and supported lately by Paul Selig’s book “The Book of Mastery.” We’ve published years of blogs pointing out all the ways we have been taught to think and believe and we’ve offered many ways to learn to perceive anew and how to turn that perception into a new way of being.

There is a call to action that is happening throughout the world to break through our old ways of being and allow the truth of who we are to come to the forefront.

In just a few words, Paul and the Guides bring into focus and create an invitation to cast off the old dead past.

“So many of you get stuck, you see, when you cause yourself fear, when you demand to know yourselves through what you have been. What you have been means so little in the face of who you are. What you have known yourself as has gotten you here perhaps, but like yesterday’s dress that no longer fits very well, to try to perceive the self through one’s old self keeps you in an old way that has no real bearing on who and what you are.” Paul Selig The Book of Mastery A Channeled Text p. 302

We’d love to hear from you:

  • How do you perceive yourself through filters of the past?
  • Who are you really?
  • Isn’t it time to let that part out?

Breaking the Cycle of Disappointment

Disappointment was the tool my parents used to keep me towing the line to the norms that were important to them. it felt like a stab in the heart when I was young when they were disappointed with me. And I still bristle at times at the use of that word.

So, David and I have been cleaning up our own cycles of disappointment lately. One thing that has really helped us is knowing the actual root of the word.

In the Online Etymological Dictionary ‘to disappoint’ has two roots- from the early 15th century “to undo an appointment or remove from office.” And later that century the modern sense “to frustrate expectations.”

Not taking someone else’s disappointment personally is made a bit easier when I look at it in terms of being ‘removed from office’. Some of the norms my parents believed in didn’t match my natural expression. So I “undid” the appointments that I didn’t agree to by being me not being what they thought I should be.

The energy that goes with disappointment is a contorted expression of love. I was confused by my parents who really did love me and yet were disappointed when I was not following the rules they set forth.

But really, disappointment results when our own will gets in the way of Divine Will- or when we try to impose our personalized will on others. The driver of our will is “You got to do it my way or the way I think it should be.”

Breaking the cycle of disappointment requires a clear loving heart. In love, we can have acceptance for ourselves and others. If my parents or I had known better we would have done differently. My parents did their best as did I.

And most of all when we act from being informed by Divine Will first, we don’t disappoint ourselves or run that energy toward another. We are acting in love and no mismatch occurs. I am no longer out of ‘appointment’ with the Divine.

If we prayerfully hold the question “What is the way right now?” and allow the answer to come, then love or Divine Will will be what shapes our actions.

We want to live in a world where dis-appointment from the Divine is healed. Where our trained habits and conditions of separation are no longer running us.

In truth, our hearts ache because of separation from love. And if God, the Divine, Source is love then when we are in alignment there is no way to be disappointed. The cycle is broken because we have closed the gap.

We welcome your comments below and look forward to hearing from you.

Love

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,

Reprogramming Understanding

Tools for Thriving

Reprogramming Understanding

Understanding in its purest form is a liberating energy. We’ve been trained to experience understanding in ways that keep us living in the comforts of habits that rub us raw.

Isn’t that amazing that our understanding can become conditioned to keep us boxed in.

We are designed to be ever expanding our comprehension of what life is and what we truly are. Some of the outrageous things that are happening in the world around us can be used to break us free from our self-limiting definition of understanding into a liberated life changing relationship to the sacredness of the word.

Understanding is the bridge that our wisdom flows across.

Each of us has a wisdom bank waiting to be turned on in a greater way. We can bring forth a brightness so that we can see, feel and know in new ways what is going on around us and within us.

We even know where the on switch is for our luminous wisdom. Why would we not always turn that switch on?

Once turned on the Light we are will show us what is too small to live in and what wide open path is calling us. Change will naturally occur as we claim freedom, true freedom in ever-greater ways.

Sometimes we keep the light of our wisdom turned off so we can maintain old-fashioned comforts that are in fact worn out and wearing us out. Understanding in ever-new ways keeps us fresh and enables the true nutrition of our wisdom to come present in our bodies and minds.

Today notice how many times you think the word ‘understanding’ or say, “I Understand”.

Ask yourself, am I understanding in new ways or old ways.

Notice what new actions are called for and where your heart is moved to go.

Allow your habits of understanding to become refreshed and updated to ‘Now’.

Keep the word understanding alive, not a habit that shrinks you.

The gift is that you will leave behind what has confined you. We invite you to risk who you think you are, who you think you understand yourself to be and the light of your wisdom will grow you as never before.

Thanks for journeying with us.

We’d love to hear from you below.

Love, David and Susan

Radio Interview with David Mackenzie

The World of a Medical Intuitive- Radio Interview with David MacKenzie

We met Dr. Emmett Miller and his wife Sandy in San Miguel de Allende Mexico a few months ago.  What we liked about them was that they were each dedicated to self-healing, wellness, success, and global transformation. David Mackenzie

And to our surprise, we didn’t know that Emmett had a radio program. He interviewed David on his show Conversations with Extraordinary People.

David talks about his background and valuable lessons we have learned from all those we’ve worked with.

They had a lot of fun exploring together.

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.

Radical Call to Freedom & Action- Vista CA

Our  recent journey in the US wasn’t so much a patchwork of individual pieces but more like a tapestry of interwoven people, places and heart.
The final stitch came from Vista California.  The blessing below is a radical call to freedom and action.

Our friends Chris and Mariko were our hosts. They are the international champions for the powerful healing plant Moringa.

The Importance of Trusting Uncertainty

You don’t know what you don’t know.
It’s a simple and powerful truth.

What if, when we don’t know there’s “a special knowing” that’s there for us?

Uncertainty is like spring. When a daffodil bulb feels the call of the sun warming the earth, it can’t see the light but it knows it’s there. And through a gesture of faith, it begins its journey to the light.
