I looked at the tag she was wearing. It had the store logo on the top, followed by “Hello, my name is…”, and then her name in bold black letters.
She saw me looking at her tag. She pushed her shoulders back ever so slightly and stood a little taller.
That tag identified who and what she was; it gave her a purpose; a place in society; an identity.
And it was all a lie.

During our physical life we all struggle to find our place and to find out who we are.
We identify ourselves – and our “worth” – by how others see us; by our job; our cars, homes, clothing; or our financial status.
We identify ourselves by society’s illusion of whether or not we “made it”.
We identify ourselves with materialistic external platitudes, facades and falsehoods.
And it is all a lie.
We are dressing up, playing pretend and somewhere along the way we got so involved in playing dress-up and pretending that we forgot that it wasn’t real.
We forgot we were here to grow and learn…but we lost ourselves to the game.
The Good News
The good news is that many have begun to realize and understand the illusion. They have begun to put away the toys and distractions; and to remember who and what they really are.
Some haven’t come that far yet. Some are still wrapped up in the pretend game; some are beginning to be uncomfortable and aren’t quite sure why yet; and some sense a wrongness and have begun searching for the truth and for what is real.
We are awakening from very long slumber on planet Earth.
So Who Are We?
This lifetime on Earth is but a miniscule drop in the bucket in the reality of our existence.
Our true goals are to grow spiritually; to learn and understand and experience; to aid others in their growth, understandings and experiences (without subverting their free will), and to move beyond self-induced (or societal accepted) physical limitations and understand that we are creators.
We are only bound by the illusions we accept.
We are beautiful beings of Light; and we each came from the Source.
We are pure energy that, in reality, is not bound by the physical dress-up suits that we wear.
Many are casting aside the distractions and are stepping away from the pretend game.
We have come a long way – and there is so much more awaiting us.

Once again I am being asked to write about Acceptance and Allowing. I touched on these briefly, but now offer a closer look.
Some people entered/went through a period of time where heavier energies chaffed them – such as not having patience with some negative attitudes; not wanting to be in crowds (grocery stores, Wally World, etc.) because being around other who had icky attitudes often gave one headaches and/or created a cranky feeling.
Tolerance and patience were in short order; isolation was preferred.
Having been an asthmatic, I often found myself matching the breathing of those I was around. If they were short breathed or had labored breathing, I developed it too…breath for breath was matched.
This was uncomfortable for me – and I’ve no clue when or why I began doing this.
After a while, I decided I didn’t need to do that. I could allow them to breathe their way and allow me to breathe the way my body wanted or needed to breathe.
I accepted their right to their experience and breathing and my right to not accept their way as my own.
In order to move out of the being chaffed energy-mode, one needs to broaden and/or change their perspective.
Acceptance and Allowing is that act of recognizing that each individual is where they are in the soul development and that they are allowed to be there.
However, this does not mean we are to allow others to mentally, physically, emotionally or verbally abuse or mistreat us; we are not doormats.
We can accept – and respect – their right to be where they are on their life path; but that doesn’t mean we have to allow their energy/attitude in our life.
If where they are is disharmonious to you, then you can step away from their energy and allow yourself to be where you need to be. You do not need to accept their disharmonious-to-you energies in your space.
By doing this, you are no longer trying to match your breathing (or energy) to their breathing (energy). You are both on your path of spiritual growth and experiences.
Different paths…same journey.
So when you are able to change your perspective, you may find other things – daily scenes and daily experiences – seem to take on a new depth.

“Today is the day of absorbing.
Today is the day you’ve worked so
hard to move forward.
Today is the day of re-birth;
stepping forward and claiming your
soul’s true purpose.”
Although we will continue to purge and clean (remember, we are purging heavier energies and cleaning not just this lifetime, but past and future lifetimes as well) – we have entered receiving the new energies.
These new energies are what will support us in a crystalline structured-based system.
We are close (energy frequency-wise) to those on the other side (higher frequency beings and our teams/support system).
Many energy workers, Lightworkers, etc. are now in direct contact with those higher frequency beings.
These beings are working closely with some to increase and/or refine their skills; aiding to adjust their physical and energy bodies to be able to work in the higher frequencies, and guiding these humans in their spiritual and energy work.
Who Are These Beings?
A very generic term would be “Ascended Masters” (though they don’t particularly like the label). However, earth writings of, and about, Ascended Masters have barely scratched the surface as to who they are – by name – and who they are in the greater scheme of things. There are thousands (and I feel I am way off number-wise…tens of thousands may be more accurate) of higher frequency beings working with and assisting humans.
Those humans who are being taught by these beings are no more special than anyone else. When each individual reaches a point in their spiritual development, these beings step forward to work with them
If it is not your time yet, that is okay! You are right on schedule and right where you need to be as per your soul plan. When your energy frequency reaches a certain frequency, it will trigger the call and the higher beings will approach.
Not everyone can see/sense/feel these beings working with them and that is also okay! It won’t stop your higher self and physical energy from getting what it needs.
Names of these beings are not necessary, but they would like us to know that they are very proud of us and excited that they are being able to have more direct contact to aid us.

Before you came to Earth, be aware that you participated in the creation of many of the challenges that you would be facing. Why? The concept of growth is often a great focus for those seeking evolution. That measurement of growth and being aware of it is essential to the maturity of one’s soul. The linear offers this at a very dense level. In Earth’s complicated density, it is easy to get caught up in drama, confused about why you are in this reality at this time. You are always a contributor to the drama in your life. Being a victim is a choice. By owning your involvement, it empowers you to have a say in how it all unfolds.
All who participate in the linear experience will have moments where it feels overwhelming. The younger soul complains, “This is just too hard”. The older soul contemplates, “Why did I come here”? As one does evolve, one is more easily able to rise above the dramas of life. Be the one who responds immediately to the whispers of the soul. Turn down the volume of the chaos so that you may hear it. Simply step back and seek the lesson. Your challenges do pass and they will pass much more quickly if you are able to do this.
Feel your growth spiritually. It may be just enough encouragement you need to continue forward towards the next plateau of evolution. Chaotic energy can distract you and enmesh you in the dramas. It takes diligence to decide that a garden of calm would serve you better.
All your experiences are created by the self, to become more aware. Awareness is the precursor to change. Stay in harmony with the joy of life. Like attracts like; if you feel defeated, you will be. If you keep your thoughts positive and joy in your heart, the negative will recede. Decide to be in control of your reality. There are no victims, only those who have given up their power.
Stop each day to appreciate being here. Find a simple moment and focus on gratitude and appreciation. Though your journey may be challenging at times, this opportunity for soul growth is a gift.
Watch yourself this day. Observe moment to moment. Where is your focus? What are your thoughts? Is this what I’ve come to Earth to experience? How can I participate in a positive outcome? Each day, determine your path to your own evolvement.
Physical experience is a multi-dimensional experience encompassing many levels of creation. It is a learning experience which does have importance and stays with the soul along its path of evolution. You’re not going to do it perfectly so be easy on yourself. It is a journey. By starting to contemplate this nature of reality, one can begin to resolve issues in your current life. As there is much more occurring than just this life, consider this to readjust your perspective.
Today, ask yourself: How am I doing? Honestly answer. Then seek remedy for anything that is unbalanced. Make the journey with your eyes and heart open. It is important to be clear about who you are and what you are doing in this particular time fragment. There is a reason you are who you are in this life. Take the time to recover what that is, your intentions and your identity.
At the end of this life, as the days grow dim, what will remain is the vibration of your heart, as it remembers the love.

Mercury Retrograde ended, which means we can begin to move forward again – though some messes may need to be cleaned up from the Mercury Retrograde energies.
Some people may feel:
- Like they woke up
- Left the fog or molasses
- They are being propelled forward, possibly so quickly that everything around them is but a blur.
Again (and I feel like I sound like a broken record, but they really want us to understand this) we’ve been through a lot, especially the last few weeks…but it doesn’t mean it is over.
We will continue to get energy shifts/downloads to help humans and earth purge all the built up heavy negative energies.
Each time we go through an energy shift or download (around the full moon, during solar flares and planetary alignments that encourage self growth, reflection, and/or changes will bring these) – we get a small reprieve…which is actually our adjustment time before another wave comes through.
Also, please remember that some are having difficulties of why they aren’t adjusting or adapting to the new energies (there are numerous reasons – as individualized as the individual). This is, unfortunately, when we see spikes of unusual, bizarre, or deadly/horrifying behavior from an individual; it is like their brain short circuited.
We are once again being asked to stay out of fear mode (panic, depression, hopelessness, scared, etc.); these emotions are heavy and bring us back down to the heavier energies.
Do you remember the Mary Poppins movie? The scene where happy thoughts and laughter (higher energy frequency) made the people float up to the ceiling while the sad thoughts made them sink back down toward the floor (heavier emotions/energies).
If we could use that scene/memory to remind us to monitor where our thoughts and emotions are bringing us, we could consciously move into the lighter thoughts/emotions/energies.
Are your thoughts making your lighter or sinking you down?

Q. How many abilities can one person have?
A. About 20 years ago, most people had a primary and one or two secondary abilities.
Since everything is energy related – and we are energy – I see all abilities overlapping; the delineations between some of them are blurring.
Most everything (I hope I didn’t overlook one) is either:
- energy manipulation (healing, manipulators, charismatics, telekinesis, etc.) or,
- energy interpretation (psychometry, signatures, “memories”, channeling, auras, spirit and spiritual mediums, aura readers, etc.)
Now, we (the human race on the whole) have risen in energy frequency and more able to access our innate abilities. We are only limited by:
- our soul contract for this lifetime (we decided before coming into this body what abilities we could access), and/or
- limited by one’s own doubts, blocks and fears.
