I have often witnessed my new version of Self travel with excitement to meet and greet other aspects of myself as my old versions of Being... and this has happened mostly in dealing with my immediate family relationships. I would show up in Romania every other year and hug my mother for example... then witness how she would immediately be startled as if she saw a ghost emerge out of my body... I would hear her say, 'what have you done with my daughter?' and I would laugh and say...'it's ok, mother dear...here is the new me... be happy I came by to see you...' And yes, it usually took her days to come to terms that I was somehow still her daughter. Here is a bit of inside information to explain her bewilderment.
She was simply projecting a holographic memory of whom she thought I was based on the past ...and it looked to me like a living hologram under the beam of her flashlight (her conditioned belief in the existence of this other 'me' out there)... I could not explain to her what I saw, I could just gently guide the conversation towards the subject of being here now...then letting go.
How is this relevant to my New Year Message now?
We need to take a look at these moments as energetic field recalibrations and appreciate the depth of what is really happening. We no longer need to grieve and process a time gap between what has been and what is now.
I believe in celebrating the SEEING of what is (no judging process required)...and then moving on with the new definitions of your reality wanting to come forth out of trusting love while leaving behind all self un-aware expressions (and yes, that includes all those people who can no longer expand their consciousness with you).
I recently had another episode of holographic mind play with a friend... this one was a bit unexpected, but it required my silent attention. I sat there listening to old stories of my past being retold and presented as if they still exist now and I witnessed the holding of a space where the hologram was being seen for what it was... a ghostlike figure bursting into thin air. Oh, yes...it felt like an out of body body experience of some sort.
I did not get much of a chance to speak to it from the now space as it was unfolding then (how perfect of a mirror was I being asked to be?)
I have allowed my writing to emerge now to express it for the collective consciousness.
So here we go, dear Ones...
My gift to Self and you for this New Year:
It is time to untie the old shoelaces of others' expectations, release old versions of you like balloons to the Force of the wind. The newest dimensions of Self have to be given priority to fully show up with no apologies... and they have to take lead in creating new standards of being and standing in one's truth whether or not its relatives ( family and friends) are comfortable with this EMERGENCE or not.
You might have to let go of old friends and relationships you cherished just because they no longer serve your emergence... give yourself permission to do so. It is more than ok. It is time.
Rumi said, "This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet." As the new year arrives, here is my invitation to you, dear Beloved Ones:
Make close friends with the most daring parts of your Self (and yes...please fine tune your list of friends who can celebrate you in your expansion of Being), SOAR higher into the depths of your Oceanic Being, BREATHE in the courage to stand in your power even if you are standing alone.
What you are creating now is perfection itself.
