Jacob-Becoming-Israel and the Divine Syzygy: An Inner Manifestation

March 2, 2016

One of the most profound spiritual experiences I have had took place on Monday, February 29, 2016 as I drove from Athens, Ohio to Topeka, Kansas to see my daughter Tori. As I was driving on I-70 in eastern Indiana I was moved to speak with Samuel, my High Self. Samuel instructed me to begin a conversation with Jacob, my Male Self, so I did.

I don’t remember much now from the early parts of this communication, but at a crucial moment my Female Self, Esther, began speaking. The surprising thing was that she was speaking in English, which she almost never does. She usually uses her ancient language that I speak so frequently now. Esther began addressing Jacob by announcing that the time had come for him to accept his true inner nature, which meant accepting his transformation from Jacob to Israel. She then began chanting in a wonderful sing-song way, “You are Israel—accept your true nature! You are Israel—accept your true nature!”

Initially Jacob was both flattered and a little disturbed to be called on for such a transformation. He has known for some time now that his moment was coming soon, but he had never imagined that it would take this form of accepting a new identity, and especially not the identity of Israel. Given his strong condemnation of the colonizing behaviors of the state of Israel and the earlier American manifestations of such Biblical imperialism, not to mention the brutal relations between the early nation and its neighbors in the Bible,  Jacob was not predisposed to take on such an identity.

But the remarkable thing was how beautiful the new identity felt, not just to Jacob but to all of my inner selves and to me as a total personality. Jacob, in utter ecstasy, began chanting, “I am Israel! I am a child of God! O am Israel! I am a child of God!” This ecstatic acceptance of this newly-revealed identity filled my entire being with warm light. I believe that I was actually glowing as I soared across the highway of Indiana, deeper into the magical plains of the Mississippi Valley.

Esther and Israel joined together in a new ecstatic union, which increased the ecstatic glowing and the musical round of heavenly song. I could hear angels singing all around me as I was filled with pure joy.

In response to my lingering questions about the brutal nature of the nation of Israel in ancient and in modern days, I was told that the true meaning of the Biblical Israel’s transformation from Jacob had been the marriage between humanity and the Planetary Being. The “Land of Israel” did not refer simply to the place commonly referred to as the Holy Land but to the planet as a whole. Israel was being instructed in his role as avatar for humanity in this newfound sense of being at home, this new atonement between humankind and the Earth. This was never meant as a covenant between a single tribe on a single plot of land but as a unification of the human with Gaia. My recognition of this human-planetary unity filled me with even more ecstatic energy.

I was then urged to remember the moment in the movie version of The Da Vinci Code when the main character revealed the meaning behind the two triangles that make up the Star of David, the downward-pointing triangle representing the female womb and the upward-pointing one representing the male phallus, with the unity of the two signifying the divine unity of the Female and Male Principles. My new experience of the unity of Esther and Israel represents just such a cosmic unity of male and female within myself, a unity that promises great changes in my social being. In fact, this newfound unity within myself as symbolized by the united triangles of the Star of David revealed yet another transformative element for me: the “Star of David,” a universal symbol that pre-existed its association with the Jews of Israel for thousands of years, was originally known as the Star of Gabriel as well as many other names. This, then, is my star, my sacred image that is to guide my mediations for some time to come.

The oddest part of all of this is how much sense it all makes and how healed and transformed I feel as a result. I am truly blessed to receive this new understanding and to be grounded in this unity of humanity and Gaia as a divine syzygy.

I’m Being Followed by a Moon Shadow

June 7-10, 2015

Last night I woke up at 3:30 A.M., as I do most nights now, and went downstairs in the dark. As I walked by our hallway window, I saw the glow of Luna shining through the trees. I stopped to greet her, and, as always, she greeted me in return.

As I was staring up at her and feeling that warm liquid glow flow through my body in response to her rays, I began to think about my recent post concerning my conversations with her and began to wonder how many people might be skeptical about the idea that the moon, like the Earth, is a conscious, communicative being.

I have the feeling that perhaps a few people have no difficulty imagining beings from or on the moon who might wish to communicate with me. But I also have the feeling that the idea that we might find ourselves actually speaking with the moon as an intelligent entity probably has even fewer adherents. Extraterrestrials—perhaps. Planets themselves—no way! But Luna herself had an answer to this objection, and this answer led her to present me with an expansive sense of Self—not just my own Self but the selfhood of all beings.

Part of the problem lies in our tendency to define life and consciousness in very limited terms that are more often than not anthropocentric. But even at the level of the human being, we tend to imagine the individual human to be the seat of consciousness and identity. What this view omits is that even on a strictly biological level, our bodies are composite entities. Our intestinal tract, for instance, is filled with microbes that carry out lives of their own while playing an important role in “our” lives by helping with digestion. (My recent bout with an intestinal flu provided me with a graphic example of such independence on the part of those microbial beings!) Our cells themselves each are tiny conscious entities carrying out their own jobs in ways that contribute to the functioning of the physical body as a composite whole.

The Earth, Gaia, works in just the same way, just as do all other planetary, solar, and asteroidal beings in our star system and beyond. The consciousness of the Earth is a composite consciousness that expresses itself as the conglomerate compilation of all earthly consciousnesses on, above, and below her surface. And we all have the innate capacity to tap into and communicate with that planetary consciousness.

And such is the case, then, with Luna, the moon. Her consciousness includes mental and energetic strains from all of the entities that exist on and within herself. Beyond that, given her particular gravitational relationship with the Earth, she is especially affected by all that happens on our planet. And we here are affected in turn by all that happens within her sphere of influence.

This is what she tells me. And beyond that, growing out of such awareness, is a more complex notion of psychology, especially in the root sense of study-of-the soul. For we are not only composite consciousnesses on the literal physical level in terms of the host of entities that cohabit our bodies, but on the psychic level as well. Long ago Plato talked about the Tripartite Soul, talking about the complicated mix of souls that make us up—often translated as the Logical, Spirited, and Appetitive souls. Our job is to find the appropriate mix and balance among the three. Freud talked about the Id, the Ego, and the Superego. And Jung sought the integration or individuation of our inner selves—the Ego, the Shadow, the Persona, the Animus and Anima, the Wise Old Man or Woman, and ultimately the Self (the composite inner and outer whole).

Closer to my own active understanding of the composite nature of the soul is the description provided by the composite entity known as Monitor (most often channeled by Harvey Grady). According to Monitor, we are made up of three souls: Our Body Soul, our Basic Soul, and our Judge Soul. Our Basic Soul is made up of our Outer Self, Male Self, Female Self, and Higher Self. The two “hitchhikers” of the Judge Soul are our Mental Judge Self and our Astral Judge Self. The two Judge Selves are defined by their recent inhabitation of the lost planet Maldek. After the calamity that destroyed their planet, they were appended to our human souls in an act of grace and challenge to growth.

Monitor on the Soul

From the book Explore With Monitor, Book 1, p. 197

The overall point Luna has to pass on here is that while we are multidimensional composite beings, we nevertheless more often than not experience this complex nature of the Self through our ego consciousness. If we can take into account the interactions of all of these dynamic selves, however, we can begin to develop a more appropriate psychology, one that is open to all of the different voices in the choir of the Self.

And just as our Ego Consciousness is often oblivious to the existence of and interactions with our various other selves, it is also most often oblivious to our constant Soul communication with the micro and macro beings of which we are a part—including the moon.

Spending this time talking with Luna helps me maintain that open and practical awareness of the Hermetic slogans: As Above, So Below and As Within, So Without. I’m being followed by a moon shadow—and it has utterly transformed who I am.

Blue Kachina Message to Humanity #4

Attune Yourself in Atonement

September 15, 2014

reikiAs you will see, part of the exercise for this line in the Song of Humanity is to encourage you to find a way to let go of your own desire to control and create the events as they unfold before you. What we are asking you to do instead is to recognize that, yes, you are a co-creator of the events that you participate in. But your co-creation involves on a very critical level your ability to let go of your desire to control.

Even when that desire is guided by higher intention, higher principles, higher goals, when you begin with those intentions, those principles, those goals, you are beginning with concepts, you are posing up front the conceptual framework within which truth might unfold for you, might show itself in the space that you could otherwise allow to open up before you. So rather than putting your concepts on the table and using them for creating a framework for controlling how you then define what else you find participating in the unfolding of truth on that table, we ask you to simply sit back and behold, to let things unfold before you in the space of acceptance and openness created when you let go of the desire to control.

This means that frequently you might find yourself believing that you are actually moving forward according to notions, concepts, goals that have been suggested to you by higher entities, your Higher Self, and that you then go on to pursue them. You might indeed be getting suggestions from a higher source, but their suggestions will rarely take the form of providing you with some conceptual term or notion to put forward as the framing mechanism for making sense of what then unfolds. Instead, what you are asked in a higher sense to do is to go with the flow, to go with what you feel opening up before you. And step-by-step following that guiding light without trying to predetermine where your destination might be, where this particular journey might lead you.

It is this opening up the space before conception, before brief recognition of concepts that guide you as principles for action, for thought, for behavior, for understanding. We instead are asking you to use this space of conception in its other sense—as a space for giving birth to new modes of creation, new modes of expansion, new modes of unfolding, for humans are in a constant state of unfolding and under-standing. And they should be standing under the display of wonder and magic that unfolds before them rather than to be posing concepts that provide the pre-determined groundwork for that apprehension of wonder.

So bring forth this message on atonement and attunement and we will continue to speak to humanity as a whole in universal terms as yet another Message to Humanity. We work with you at all stages of composition, for it is com-position, that is, bringing together, positioning together, com-posing as a mode of attaining unity.

Our last message concerned unity and the necessity for humanity to start recognizing the necessity for unity. At this point we wish to pose one more step, a step out of that field opened up by the desire for unity among humans, the unity among humans that alone can make possible an effective human interaction and community with other entities on a species level, on a planetary level. So that next step forward that we suggest is one of attunement, and we wish for you to meditate on the senses of this word that you have in English—attunement—and ultimately, in ways that we will lead you to consider as we go on, the relationship between attunement and atonement. For it is through this attuning atonement that humans can bring themselves to move forward beyond a mere concept of unity, of unification beyond the simple desire and recognition of the necessity for unification, and realize that that unification has to involve a kind of attunement.

So if we begin with the word “attunement,” and you think back to our message on unification, we suggested that each of these communications is in a sense the production of another line in what we called the Song of Humanity. And that musical reference is not incidental or accidental. It is crucial to the very feeling of understanding that we are inviting you to participate in. If you think of attunement in its musical sense, you are the orchestra preparing to sing together, to play your instruments together in a way that produces a symphony of humanity, a song of the earth in which the human voice resonates so beautifully.

When you tune in together, when you align your instruments of expression, those instruments that best allow you to express your very being in a given moment, we allow you a way to imagine how humans might consider and might enact the kind of unification we spoke of in the previous message. Imagine yourselves as the orchestra sitting down together, tuning your instruments, preparing for the greatest symphony you have ever played together in all of the existence of humanity. This is humanity’s great song, and you are tuning your instrument in order to play your part in that great musical composition.

It is through that musical composition, that alignment of resonances, that alignment of voices, that alignment of unified intention and rhythm, timbre, tone, not always seeking some simple harmonious chord but perhaps some energetic play of discord in order to emphasize what needs to be emphasized and not washed over in the simple rhythms and tones of accord. Discord is not the opposite of accord; discord is another mode of accord. It’s when you together as the orchestra, as the one unified entity, the one unified musical organism playing this song, recognize how you work together in this creation of the universe. And as you let yourself go in the performance, as you let your voice of your instrument sing forth, as you play your drum, vibrate that bow on those strings, press the keys of that wind instrument, you bring forward your own voice in the creation of attunement. And when you are attuned, then you can move on in your performance of that great Song of Humanity.

When humanity can allow itself to consciously seek this kind of attunement in which discord is another mode of accord from a higher perspective that allows for the various voices and rhythms and movements to play in and through each other, then you can begin to imagine the necessity for atonement—the atonement only made possible by the previous recognition of the necessity for attunement. Atonement only has genuine meaning when you are in tune with and seeking greater attunement with all of the universe, all of humanity, all of this planetary creation that you are yourself participating in in its unfolding.

“Atonement” is the English word these days referring to various modes of contrition and reparation where guilty parties express their sorrow and seek forgiveness. They say, “I am sorry for the pain and the suffering I might have contributed to in my previous ventures that were out of attunement with humanity’s great song. I apologize for acting out from an egocentric platform which at the time best expressed what I understood to be the most appropriate and opportune behavior or mode of expression. Yet seeing a greater overview of how all of these various voices come together in this attunement, I am sorry for imagining that my voice was more important and more pure and more to the point of truth than those others.”

It is only when we can humbly let go of our singular claim to truth that we can begin to recognize the claims of truth expressed by others. For when we can begin to recognize how the various expressions that seem so discordant might on a higher level actually be working towards a higher resolution of energies which from a limited perspective appear to be in conflict and only capable of producing conflict and pain and suffering and anger and hatred—yet pure atonement, pure expression of contrition is not satisfied by expressions of sorrow and of being sorry, but is a recognition that All are One.

Atonement is At-One-Ment. It is the recognition that at base we are all one being, one people, one expression of this total planetary being as it works itself out toward a more beautiful and harmonious expression of energies and tones. That At-One-Ment is the ultimate goal of atonement. It is not to hide in shame. It is not to use expressions of being sorry to hide behind when you haven’t in fact truly grown in your comprehension of the apparently conflicting forces at play. True atonement comes out of true attunement. When you are truly attuned to the other impulses and vibrations of your fellow human beings and, ultimately beyond them, the other entities participating with you in the Song of this planet and this universe, you are ready for a true understanding of atonement, At-One-Ment: the true unity that we spoke of in the previous message.

To repeat: that unity does not come about simply through good intention, for good intention can often unwittingly provide the framework for further conflict. You are so sure of your good intention that you are no longer capable of understanding the good intention of others. You are so sure that you have found the best possible way of making sense of and expressing the conflicting resonances of a given set of circumstances that you become convinced that you are the sole possessor of the words of truth. Atonement moves beyond that. True atonement moves beyond Ego. It’s a giving up of Ego and saying, “I am part of a larger resonance, a larger array of forces, energies, vibrations, frequencies, and only in the illusion, the Myth of Separation can I even imagine that my one voice can be true in itself.

When you can imagine all of these voices as various modes of expression of truth, however one-sided they may appear, however limited they may appear to your presumed perspective of what is appropriate and right and true, only at that point of true recognition of attunement can you move forward to the creation of atonement where all of humanity comes together and realizes that true atonement, the true At-One-Ment is acceptance. It is Love.

The saying, “Love your neighbor as yourself” is a very important step toward attunement and atonement. An even greater step in that direction is the embracing of the saying, “Love your enemy as yourself.” When you can get to the point where you can actually feel the truth of that expression from within, and from a non-egocentric position step forward into the universe where you are actively loving your enemy, then you are actively seeking attunement and atonement. It is only at that point that you can truly be sorry for your previous expressions guided by well-meaning but limited definitions of truth.

So prepare your instrument. Practice it well. For it is your mode of expression. It is your mode of excelling, of letting yourself go in the grand symphony of existence, in the great song of life, the great Song of Humanity. Become perfect at the expression of love and joy through your instrument, and tune that instrument to those of the other members of your orchestra. Then your own expression will truly resonate and truly find its place in the Song of Humanity.

Go forward seeking the peace that you know you at base are yourself. You are peace. You are love. You are attunement. You are atonement. Move forward with an open heart. Move forward into the space of creation and let the resonances unfold before you, and let your spirit be moved in that unfolding as it moves forward. Do not try to predetermine the outcome of that song. Go forward with the understanding that very beautiful and mysterious strains will find utterance through your voice in ways completely unexpected by yourself. Go sing your unexpected song of beauty. Go forward in your attunement, in your atonement, in your song of love, which is the Song of Humanity.

Blue Kachina Message to Humanity #3

Unify yourself by resonating in the love that defines you as a species

Love-Fire

This is the Blue Kachina speaking to Humanity, speaking to all entities engaged in the work of furthering the development of this planet, this planet known as Gaia, this planet known as Turtle Island—this rock in the sky that you all call home, and for whom all of these energies come into concerted orchestration in order to allow for a place for your own song, your own resonance.

So as you breathe in this air of this atmosphere of this planet that you call home, recognize that you are joining in in spirit with the spirit of all, for the atmosphere is one plane on which all come together as spirit. The Sky Spirits work in this way, by helping to mobilize and orchestrate the various impulses of the various entities on this planet, in the atmosphere that makes up this planet, beneath the surface in the subterranean passages and waterways of this planet. We call and unite you all together in breathing in one breath, one unison of spirit—one spirit for one planet. And as you breathe out, your own being flows out into and joins with the being of all other entities on this planet.

gazaWe wish to speak to the issue of conflict, the issue of strife, the issue of pain and sorrow resulting from such conflict, resulting from such strife, resulting from such misunderstanding brought about by the Myth of Separation. The Myth of Separation is a particular energetic framework that has been in existence on this planet for quite some time. A lot of what can be called harm has come about as a result of this. A lot of creativity has been released as a result of this.

What we are hoping for at this point as we all join together with you is that you will recognize this Myth of Separation, recognize the accomplishments and drawbacks that have been produced under its auspices, and recognize that it is time to move on. It is time to recognize your kinship. It is time to recognize your membership in the planetary family of beings. When we speak this way, the conflicts that exist among humans appear so small and so relatively insignificant when humans are seen as one element among the many that come together as the consciousness of this planet.

Myth of Separation

Myth of Separation

When we talk of unity of purpose, unity of intention, unity of will between humans and nonhumans (fairies and elves and angels and all kinds of elemental beings throughout the various levels of the planet), one might imagine that such interspecies cooperation should appear to be more difficult than bringing conflicting groups of humans together for any such purpose. And yet the reality so often is that people tend to imagine finding the grounds for unifying all humans to be much more difficult than finding the ground for unifying humans and nonhumans.

Humanity at this moment is coming to a very important point of recognition. Humans at this point are ready to step out of the Myth of Separation that keeps one human separated from another. It is this unity of purpose on the human plane that we draw your attention to and that we ask you to concentrate on and meditate on, to direct energy towards, for it is in such energetic conscious meditation that you can change the vibration of the planet. You can change the resonance of your heart and you can bring the resonances of the various groups of the human being into a particular conversation, into a particular orchestration, and when humans—no matter how diverse, no matter how separated by war, by greed, by fanaticism, by single-mindedness—begin to recognize the unity that exists among themselves, then they start to resonate differently. They start to move forward with a very different sense of purpose and a very different sense of relationship.

When humans start to recognize that there is one human family, no matter how diverse its origins and its modes of expression, this unity of family becomes real. It becomes an actual expression of a unified resonance from out of the hearts of all humans. Eventually, as more and more humans become aware of the power of their own heart resonance and become aware of the power of joining in unison the resonance of each individual heart, those more resistant hearts are affected. You can see this in a heightening of hysterical attitude and behavior, where certain long-standing assumptions about how the world is organized, how people within that world should operate, are now challenged, where the grounds of everyday awareness are falling beneath their feet and they no longer know where they stand on a particular issue, no longer know where they should direct their energies, their intentions, their love, their anger, their fear, their joy, their sorrow.

What we come to speak of today, in other words, is the very real possibility of a bringing together of all humanity into a singular purpose and focus.

It is this faith in such a possibility that allows for it to flourish.

It is going forward, despite the evidence to the contrary—the continuing wars, the continuing bloodshed, the continuing lies and justifications.

It is going forward beyond the continuing separations, beyond the devotion to separation.

It is in challenging the claims to priority, to originality, to special nature and special dispensation—it is by challenging all of these Myths of Separation with messages of connection, with messages of heart, by saying, “Don’t you realize how we are all one being? Don’t you realize how we all come from one source, this very planet that we have chosen to participate in during this lifetime?”

This is a message concerning the consciousness of union, the consciousness of bringing all of humanity together as a family, as a unity, as a being capable of relating to the untold number of other beings, other entities on this planet.

When humans come together in a united purpose, in a united heart, then there will be a dramatic shift in the energy of the entire planet. When humans learn that they are all brothers and sisters to one another, they will then be able to recognize their kinship to those who are not human. For some people, this kinship to that beyond the human is easier to grasp than kinship within the human family. It is easier to identify with the animal kingdom than with the various warring nation states on this planet, the various spiritual traditions transformed into warring institutions. For others, there is an even greater sense of alienation in relation to the natural world, and certainly in relation to what is often referred to as the supernatural world.

ONEhumanitySo in line with the previous messages (see the Blue Kachina Messages to Humanity #1 and #2), we bring forward yet another slogan, you might say, another line in the Song of Humanity that we are hoping to compose together with you. Just as we spoke of grounding yourself in the traditions and the energies that most sustain and excite you, and just as we talked about freeing yourself by embracing your shadow, we now ask that you love yourselves in allowing yourself to imagine another world, another way of being, another way of resonating together in unity. It is especially in times of great conflict that such a message is all the more important. It is in the midst of the sound of missiles soaring through the air and exploding around you that your song of unity has all the more purpose and necessity.

So we call on you to recognize this loving nature as a core principle of human identity itself in loving unity. This is a key element of what it means to be human. Humans have come to this planet in order to foster and develop their capacity for love. And in this loving unity they can best resonate with the other elements, elementals, the planet.

So go forward in peace, in love, in unity of purpose, grounded in that which excites you, freed by the embracing of your shadow, and unified in the love that defines you as a species.

Thank you for listening. Thank you for your song in the universe.
