Diamonds in the Sky

Diamonds in the Sky

A “diamond planet” was discovered in late 2012 and I’ve been fascinated by it ever since I heard about it – but didn’t really know why. As with most things recently, I wonder why these things stick out in my mind and therefore, what it was offering me on my spiritual journey. Then I put it together when I read an article from Forbes magazine about the diamond planet and the monetary “value” that was placed on it – $26.9 Nonillion (which is 26.9 followed by 30 zeros).

Here is a quote from the article I’m referring to “There is no doubt in my mind that it would be quite valuable for those of us on earth to be able to mine The Diamond Planet and sell its raw diamonds. Naturally, there is a question of whether all that supply could be absorbed by the market.”

The concept that humanity has any right to consider mining this far off planet for diamonds and selling them here on Earth is not only arrogant, it demonstrates our skewed priorities and the extent of the illusions that make up our disintegrating reality. Diamonds are only considered “valuable” because our society attributes a specific value to them. The perceived monetary value of the ‘diamond planet’ serves as a distraction from our true nature – curiosity and scientific enquiry about this amazing discovery.

For many of us today, we have forgotten where we come from and our true Divine Nature. I know that I had, and it’s been quite the journey finally “remembering” many of those things; those Universal truths. The process has pushed my mind to the “brink of insanity” and back again, and somehow, I always come back to myself, finding peace in my heart’s connection to Mother Earth.

Honoring the Divine Feminine

I have a very strong connection with Mother Earth and Grandmother Moon, and my awakening has been very “feminine” in nature. But, we can’t have Life without both aspects – yin/yang, masculine/feminine, night/day. As with most things there is “duality”, and the duality that I’m referring to right now is the God/Goddess elements of our spirituality.

I have read a great many things about this duality, and specifically about how many calendars used to be both Solar and Lunar. As we moved away from recognizing the Lunar aspect of time in our calendars, we have also moved away from the Lunar side of our spirituality – the Goddess, or Divine Feminine.

The Goddess is the intuitive side of our nature. She is our feminine aspects; the side of us that nurtures, that forgives, shows compassion, and is guided by emotional intelligence. She respects life and the Earth, has the power to heal, and a loving “maternal” instinct toward others. Respect for the Goddess energy is what has been missing from our society – and from ourconsciousness – for so very long. And she is trying very hard to get our attention.

Diamonds in the Sky - starWe are all one in creation and Mother Earth is no exception. She provides everything we need to live abundant and sustainable lives. She is generous and plentiful, but she also must be seen and respected as such. She will provide us with all of the resources we will ever need, if we work with her natural flow instead of against her; if we acknowledge her being and co-exist with her. But today, we as a species have taken what she has offered us, and more, and put a monetary value on it. We systematically compete for her abundance, as though it is scarce.

Scarcity or Abundance?

Of course we all need money to survive, right? Well, I say wrong. We need the Earth to survive, and she has provided us with everything we need to do so. I mean, we can’t eat money right?

Money is only a representation of an energy exchange. On its own, it’s not a bad concept. The problem is that our current monetary and resource systems have been corrupted. A culture of scarcity and competition – instead of abundance and cooperation – has been deliberately cultivated, while mechanisms like fractional reserve banking ensure that wealth is funnelled away from the general population and into the hands of a few power brokers. Our nation’s “leaders” are at war with one another over land, money and oil, and it’s happening as we speak.

We have taken so much from our Mother without giving back, and we have reached the point in our relationship where our acquisitive behavior will no longer be tolerated, so to speak. We have created a system that is no longer working for Mother, or humanity, and it’s collapsing all around us as we speak. When enough people wake up to what is happening – and it’s coming – we can begin to reclaim and rebuild our societies in alignment with our true nature: our beautiful Mother Earth.

Beautiful Mother

I often wondered how we could ever place a monetary value on gifts of life from nature, such as food and water. Why so many must go hungry when our Mother has provided plenty for all of us, if only we would cooperate.

I often wondered why I didn’t have the freedom to live where I wanted on this beautiful planet; why I was “restricted” to a certain area just because of where I was born. Am I not free to roam, to explore, to see all the gifts of Mother Earth? Why does someone else get to decide where I can go?

What isn’t working for you?

Right now we have the opportunity and the obligation to ask ourselves – What we can do to break the cycle that is no longer working? What does our beautiful Mother need from us, in return for her sustenance? What do we want and need our societies to look like going forward?

It is all of our responsibility to open ourselves up to these questions. Until we show reverence for our Mother Earth, she will be sure that we continue to see and hear and feel her. She will rumble and roar until we look up to See her and ask her what she needs to thrive.

As Mother Earth continues to realign herself to a higher vibration, we are in a unique position; we have both the power and the need to manifest a new reality together, creating something new, different and beautiful.

We are diamonds, and it is our job to take care of our Mother who has provided us with sustenance and life.

We are diamonds, and it is our job to make sure that no one around us goes hungry or without shelter, or natural freedoms, or love.

We are diamonds, right here on Mother Earth, and it is our responsibility at this time in history to shine bright with our inner light and change our very reality.

See her, feel her, taste her, smell her, and LOVE her.

See, feel, taste and love EACH OTHER!

We don’t need to mine diamonds from the sky. I already see diamonds… everywhere!

The Magician’s Secret

wand

The curtain opens and the Magician steps onto the stage in front of a large audience as they wait with bated breath to see the show.  We watch in Awe and Wonder as magic bursts forth in front of our very eyes.  How do they do these things?  We are always searching for the Magician’s Secret both on the stage and in our very own Lives.  The brilliant thing about searching for Magic in our own Lives is that it is so very, very simple.

There is a key to unlocking Magic in our Lives in order to grow and learn in Spirit.  The key is, and always has been, an “attitude of gratitude” but what does it really mean?  We are human and spiritual BEings all at once and it is our great challenge in Life to balance our “ego” mind with our Spirit, or Heart center.  We cannot be in “fear” and Love all at once as they cannot co-exist in the “higher realms” we seek to find which means we cannot be in “lack” and abundance at the same time either.

When we are struggling in any area in our Lives we find ourselves in a place known as “survival” mode.  Survival mode comes on in any given number of situations including our relationships, finances, and health.  We have to understand that the path to Spirit is an emotional journey and when we feel survival mode coming on it’s typically a great opportunity to plow the field but it can also be taxing and painful.  Stress and fear are the biggest obstacles in Life when if comes to BEing Healthy, both physically and emotionally.  Our emotions are the key to Spirit and when they come, positive or negative, it is the Universe (or our Higher Self) expressing itself through our feelings.  None of our emotions are “bad” and there’s nothing “wrong” with any of them but we have been conditioned to think otherwise, for the most part, so when in survival mode we are typically in a fight or flight situation which can cause a feeling of “panic”.  If we can shift our ourselves into a place of Allowance with our emotions we find that they are there to help us grow and learn although at times this makes us feel vulnerable in many ways.  When times get tough emotionally it can lead us to a place of feeling like the path of Spirit isn’t “working” because in order to find Joy we also have to rid ourselves of the lower vibrational emotions which means we have to see them, feel them, and let them go on a cellular level.  Not such an easy task when there is emotional pain involved as it is in our very Nature to avoid “pain” so to actually be Grateful for the pain is another step up the proverbial ladder.  This is why it’s called Spiritual PRACTICE and it takes practice to “get it right”.

Energetically there is a great deal of “chaos” in the “field” as we Awaken from the density of the fear-based, lower vibrational emotions.  This means that we are all in the process of Healing which is a Beautiful thing by its very Nature and something we can all be Grateful for on both an individual and collective basis.  Truths are surfacing in every aspect of our existence and some of these truths can be painful on an emotional level and the pain comes in the form of feeling unworthy and unlovable.  In short, our emotions are the way we “communicate” with Spirit and/or our Higher Self so this is how we let Spirit know what brings us Joy and what brings “pain”.  When we focus on only the pain or negativity we find more pain and negativity to greet us and in order to shift this perspective it’s almost as easy as turning on a switch – the switch of Gratitude.

In the Art of Bushido a “warrior” is expected to find Gratitude when a weakness is exposed because it Allows an Opportunity to reinforce the armor if you will.  Whenever we are feeling “lack” we are not in a Spiritual place, period.  Although the “lack” may be very, very real it should not ever be the primary focus as this is what makes the lack seem and feel more intense.  If one can’t find Gratitude in a given situation it’s okay to go back and find Gratitude from areas of the past or future in order to lead us to the place of NOW where we live moment to moment as is intended.  When we find Gratitude for the things in Life that are pleasing to us we REceive MORE of the things that are pleasing to us!  However, it’s not enough to just think “thank you” and move on rather we have to Allow ourselves the intense EMOTION of Gratitude.  Think of oneself as a weary wanderer in the desert who hasn’t had a sip of water in days and suddenly the oasis appears bringing an overwhelming sense of Gratitude at this most Magical sight.  This is the Emotion of Gratitude that must be felt and not just spoken in order to be effective.  It takes practice to really embrace the Emotion of it and to Allow oneself to feel it Truly.

It’s okay to start small as it’s the little things in Life that bring the most Joy.  A bright blue sky, the smell of an infant, the autumn leaves on the trees, or the smile from a dear friend are all “simple” things to be Thankful for.  Once we begin it doesn’t take long to to feel truly Blessed and by stoking the fire of Gratitude we find ourselves on a completely different path where Life and Love become Free and Easy.  We  have to BElieve we are Worthy of the Love, Joy, Happiness, Peace, and/or stability we are seeking and the feeling of BEing Worthy is also a tremendous Gift.  When we feeI, on an energetic and cellular level, that we are Worthy of our own Happiness we can begin to feel the Gratitude even more profoundly.  When we Allow ourselves to feel Grateful for even the negative areas of our Lives, because it’s showing us something about ourselves deep withIN, we find ourselves feeling Blessed which is also a Gift in and of itself.  But, there’s even more as one grows in the practice of Gratitude…there really IS Magic!

The best way to really encompass Gratitude into our energetic field is by beginning a Gratitude journal or specific practice.  This seems simple, I know, but it consistently surprises me how many people who are unwilling to incorporate this very simple practice into their Lives.  If you don’t know where or how to begin there’s a great book called “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne which is an accompaniment to the book “The Secret”.  It’s a daily 28 day practice of marrying oneself to the emotion of Gratitude and couldn’t be more simple.  When we embrace this practice our Spiritual or energetic signature begins to Create synchronicities and openings in our Lives which we can rely on by way of our Intuition.  Solutions to problems previously thought of as “unsolvable” suddenly have the most simplistic answers.  When we are Grateful for our relationships, good or bad, they automatically get better.  When we are Grateful for our financial status, good or bad, we find more opportunities to grow the bank account.  When we are Grateful for our Positive and Loving emotions we REceive more Positive and Loving ways to express them.  When we are Grateful for our Health and our bodies we begin to Heal, both physically and emotionally.  REmember, we are a society of “instant gratification” and it’s easy to slip back into a feeling of “lack” when things don’t show up when or how we are expecting.  The Universe or your Higher Self knows what you need, and in what order, more than you do sometimes so stay Patient and Grateful as you work through the process.  Just because we can’t SEE it in our physical world doesn’t mean it isn’t there or on its way so don’t give up just as the seed is beginning to burst forth with Life.  REmember that Self wants Self to be Happy and Self knows that you are Worthy of REceiving this Gift.
