On Where To Look For God

“God likes to play hide-and-seek, but because there is nothing outside of God, God has no one but themself to play with. But they get over this difficulty by pretending that they are not themself. This is God’s way of hiding from God.

God pretends that they are you and I and all the people in the world, all the animals, plants, all the rocks and all the stars. In this way, they have strange and wonderful adventures, some of which are terrible and frightening. But these are just like bad dreams, for when God wakes up they will disappear.

Now, when God plays “hide” and pretends that they are you and I, God does it so well that it takes God a long time to remember where and how they hid themself. But that’s the whole fun of it, just what God wanted to do.

God doesn’t want to find themself too quickly, for that would spoil the game. That is why it is so difficult for you and me to find out that we are God in disguise, pretending not to be God. But, when the game has gone on long enough, all of us WAKE UP, stop pretending, and REMEMBER that we are all one single Self – the God who is all that there is and who lives forever and ever.

You may ask why God sometimes hides in the form of horrible people, or pretends to be people who suffer great disease and pain. Remember, first, that God isn’t really doing this to anyone but God. Remember too, that in almost all the stories you enjoy there have to be bad people as well as good people, for the thrill of the tale is to find out how the good people will grow as they get the better of the bad.”

Sleepy Time Spirituality

Waking up is golden.  I love that feeling, especially on the colder mornings, when I wake up and feel that soft, gooey comfort of being still in sleepy suspension, wrapped up in my fluffy duvet.  Without opening my eyes, I turn over and curl up in glorious bliss for a few more minutes of deliciousness.  This is a great time to contemplate any lasting remnants of the nights’ dreams.  But mostly, this is a special time for doing some really powerful and transformational spiritual work.

When we are just waking from sleep and slipping into sleep, we are already in an altered state of consciousness that is perfect for deep and powerful manifestation.  This is a great time to repeat your affirmations and positive self-statements, to send out healing and gratitude, to manifest and activate all you are calling into your life now.  It’s probably amongst the most powerful times for all this work, not to mention for prayer, and maybe that’s why we traditionally teach children to pray just before going to sleep.  At this time, you are conscious but also have a foot in the other world.  You are operating as both your physical and energy selves combined.  

My current waking up practices involve engaging with the energies of abundance in order to overcome any resisting energies of lack consciousness.  This work is really, deeply about increasing self-worth and self-love, except it tends to manifest as fear of lack.  Lack of money, lack of time, lack of fundamental things we feel we need to survive.  It can appear in the form of addictions.  The fears are often irrational, perhaps a fear of not having enough to eat when we have a full larder.  So, I’m using this early morning sleepy time to repeat some powerful statements that consolidate my being in a constant stream of abundance, which we all are. 

And this is also a perfect time for me to send healing out, knowing that it’s so powerful because I’m really connected and open at this time. 

Currently, I’m working on a ‘re-homing critters’ project and this is one of my newest offerings.  In this case, it’s rats in the attic space.  When engaged in this work, I’m addressing the over-lighting great Rat Consciousness.  This is the collective archetype energy of all rats.  And I request that the Rat Consciousness supports the individual rats in question to understand that their current choice of home in the attic is neither safe for them nor for the humans who live in the house.  I will also call in the house spirit, an elemental spirit that takes care of the house, which in this case dates to the 1700’s.  And I also call the Elemental Kingdom, who I’m especially asking to support the rats in finding a safe and suitable new home in the vicinity.  This activation is repeated several times in order for the creatures concerned to overcome their natural instincts to protect the nest or site they have already chosen to live in.  It’s important to appreciate the enormity of asking them to leave their home, after all, it’s not something we would willingly do without good cause, so why should they?

Have you felt called to engage in some energy work during these powerful times of entering and leaving sleep?

Good Morning, Beautiful Soul!

Everything you are, I am also.  Everything I am, you are.  What is it like when we begin to experience unity consciousness as a part of living our lives on Earth? 

To begin with, it seems almost impossible because separation has been our reality for so long, for thousands of years and more.  We may say we are one, but do we deep down feel that way when we are living our lives separately, living inside our own heads?

Don’t stop, keep on believing it, keep on feeling that it’s the truth, even if life just doesn’t feel that way.  It will.  There will come a moment when you find yourself feeling connected to everything, like there is no separation at all between you and anything else.  It will blow you away.  The first few times it won’t last and you will feel sad when you realise that feeling has left you.  Don’t get fixated on that moment.  Don’t worry, it will come back, again and again, and it will stay with you longer and slowly become who you are.  You will begin to feel a oneness with nature, with the sky, with the air.  You will feel an affinity and connection with the people around you, eventually it will become a lasting oneness with everything and everybody. We are moving fluidly through the process and this is so wonderful, so enriching.  It is building and consolidating within our consciousness. 

I expect you’ve already had a moment or two like this, right?  If not, they will come.  Perhaps you are one that has woken up completely?  We are waking up and then gently nudging our neighbours, helping each other to wake up together, we are stretching our limbs, yawning and opening our eyes.  We are seeing ourselves and each other anew, seeing for the first time what has always been true; there is only one of us.  Good morning, beautiful, divine soul!

And Solstice Blessings on this special, magical day to all that is one!
Love and Solstice Light to you, beautiful soul,
