Love, Light and Other Fluff

I’m sure you’ve worked it out by now that the way in which humans communicate with each other is something that I’m pretty intrigued with.  I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I am passionate about it, and I’m certainly no expert in language use, but I have been writing and talking about the Energy of words and the way that we communicate by using them, for years – specifically about how those who consider themselves to be Spiritual: Lightworkers, Starseeds, or whatever other name you prefer – and about how they communicate and interact with each other. 

I’ve spoken many times about the Energy held within everyday words and how when those words are not spoken in the highest sense, how that Energy can personally affect YOU, how the words that you use can pull you down; how they can limit your potential to excel.  To grow.  And this effect is not just in the spiritual realms – it also affects everyday life. 

I spoke on this topic again in the International Koalition of Krones Zoom Chat on 13th November 2020, but that time it was about how our word choices, and the syntax and cadence that we use, can actually cause Energetic Harm to others – and that harm can even happen unintentionally because we are careless and we speak without consideration of the meaning and the effects of certain words.

Humans are poised to evolve.

It’s not the first time we’ve changed and grown, and it probably won’t be the last time.  But this time?  This time we get the opportunity to consciously choose which direction, which timeline, we will travel.  We get to choose what we want it to look like.  And that choice happens through the Energy held by the majority of the Collective Consciousness of Humanity.

There is so much opportunity right now, at this point in linear time, at this crux-point we are currently in.  So much opportunity to make the right choice.  We know this.  In our physical world it is so obvious.  We are at a place in our reality where humans are able to make a choice about the future of humanity; a choice about which path we are going to choose – and that choice will eventually affect the future of all Beings on this planet, not just humans, but every Being on Earth.  And because we are choosing OUR future, and because humanity WILL go Galactic in that future, our choices now will affect so much that lies way beyond this place we call home.  The choices we are making right now, both individually and collectively, are so important because they will affect everything for the next 13,000 years. 

And the only way that we can work out what those choices should look like is to communicate with each other.  And to be quite honest, I think we are doing a pretty rotten job.  Those who promote the fear and anger that has been sweeping this planet for so many years and which has become extreme in the last few months – they are talking the loudest.  Their words don’t always make sense, but they say it loudly and with conviction.  And humans have a history of listening to those who talk the loudest, regardless of whether what they are saying is Truth or not.

Communication is the first stage of the Conscious Evolution of the Collective Consciousness of Humanity. 

Starseed and Lightworkers are here at this point in linear time to maintain the Energy, to hold space so that humanity can grow and work things out in the way that they most desire as a Collective.  Everyone on this path should be really aware of the words they use and how they use them.  We are responsible for consciously leading the way into clear communication. We hold the Energy and we absolutely must do everything we can to hold it at the highest frequency we can. 

And that leads me into something I want to talk about – about how we, the Spiritual Community, especially in the Western world, have taken Sacred words and Blessings, often from other cultures, and made them into everyday phrases. 

I want to talk about how we, the Spiritual Community, use words of great Power in exactly the same way as we yell “Bye, see ya later.”  I want to discuss how we finish an email, not with ‘Best wishes,” or ‘Yours faithfully,’ but with a Sacred Blessing.  And there is nothing wrong with that, nothing wrong with that at all provided that Blessing is given consciously and with knowledge.

We, especially those of us within a Western society have appropriated Sacred Words from other cultures and we’ve bastardised them.  When we are writing a salutation at the end of a letter or a post, most of us wouldn’t dream of using the words “ By the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God…” So why do we use “Namaste”?

I’m guilty.  I’m guilty of using such words without, each time, considering the deeper meaning of the words I’m using.

So let’s think about the meaning of that word – Namaste.  I Bow to You.  On the surface it seems like a pretty good salutation and nowadays, it’s mainly that way, but let’s dig a bit deeper.  I Bow to You.  It means that you hold deep respect for the other person.  That you know them, that you honour them and that you also understand, because we are all One, that in honouring and respecting them you too are being honoured and respected.  How often, when you use that word, do you take time to think of the acknowledgement you are making in understanding one of the deeper Truths of the Universe?

Then again, the Oxford English Dictionary simply says that it means “Hello.”

Food for thought.

Another Sacred phrase that we use incorrectly, also stolen from another culture – in this case the Mayan – is “In Lak’ech ala kin”   Now I do know a number of people who do use this phrase in full awareness of the deeper meaning of the words, and I don’t see it over used in the same way as Namaste has been.  And that is a good thing. In Lak’ech literally means “I am another you.” Like Namaste this phrase is talking of the deeper Truths of the Universe – I don’t exist without you and you don’t exist without me.  If you were not here, I wouldn’t be here either – and thinking about that can take you on a very long, and interesting journey seeking that deeper knowledge.

When I was first starting out on my Spiritual journey, when I first heard of that phrase and it’s meaning, I thought it was really cool and I used it all over.  Until I started to delve into that deeper meaning and realised my casual use was both disrespectful to the culture and to the deeper truth of the words.

And that brings me to the final phrase I want to discuss today.  A phrase that is so mis-used and over-used that just to hear it makes my toes curl!  It no longer carries the Energy it should.  That it once did.

But first, before I tell you what this phrase is, I’ll tell you what it means to me.  My interpretation.

I am the Light of Creation. 

I am the light first seen at the beginning of the linear time of our reality. 

I draw that light into my Being so that I can be a beacon to guide and aid those who struggle in darkness.

I humbly bring that Light into the Service of All.  

I am merely a conduit. 

A conduit in Service to the Energy and Knowledge of the Universe. 

I Bless you with the frequencies of Creation and Wisdom and Love. 

When I say this, my interpretation of this phrase, I feel the Energy.  I feel it building in my hands and my heart, in all my Chakras.  I feel the Energy of being in Service, I feel humbled and I feel the commitment I have made to this Journey, to the Collective.  And when all that Energy, all that is bundled, mainly without thought, into  “Love and Light” delivered in an off-hand, throw-away manner, is it any wonder that I cringe?

Now, don’t misunderstand me – I’m not in anyway saying that there is anything wrong in using those phrases.  There is nothing wrong with using Namaste, In Lak’ech, Love and Light, Gy’ Shé em, KaRa Ounz Chez Prana, OM AkArapariNAma Anadaham and more.  But please, feel the power of the words.  Understand the depth of the words.  Feel the Blessing within the words.  And then use them in Honour of the Knowledge and the Wisdom and the Power of these phrases.

We who are Starseed, Lightworkers or whatever other term you prefer, we are the ones who should be leading the way for the Conscious Evolution of the Collective Consciousness of Humanity.  And the first step is to become aware of the power that we hold in the words that we use.  And we should use them wisely.  Yes, we all stumble and make mistakes, we speak through a human filter but we have also become complacent. We are de-sensitised.  We are losing the deeper Truths, the deeper knowledge and wisdom in favour of fluff.

Word Power

Words contain Power.  Power that is beyond anything that you might realise. At least, not without thinking deeply about the words that you use, and the words that others use around you.  How they affect you – and how they affect those others that you speak with – or to.

There.  Straight away, there, is an good example of what I mean.  I said, “The others that you speak with or to.”  Have a think about it.  When you bump into someone and have a chat, then you mention that chat to another person or just review it in your mind later on, how do you describe that conversation? I could say, “I spoke with Essence yesterday” or I could say “I spoke to Essence yesterday.”  Just have a think of the difference that is made by that tiny, often unthinking choice of words.  You may not even have noticed the difference.

When I speak WITH Essence – we are talking pretty much on an equal footing,  we are engaging each other in conversation.

Yet in this scenario, when I speak TO Essence – I would be not only taking control of the conversation – I would be taking Energy away from her because there is an inference that I am talking down to her in some way.  Diminishing her.  Of course, I never would consider myself in any way superior to Essence (she is my teacher, my mentor, my Spiritual Sister and, above all, my friend), but that diminishing of the Self of the person you are talking TO is a big potential for harm.

Think about it.  If one of your co-workers was speaking TO you in this manner, always talking TO you and not WITH you, it wouldn’t take long before you would feel really disempowered, and if it kept on, you would end up feeling fearful, bullied.  You’d loose the Joy in your work.

Now, I must say that CONTEXT also plays a big role in this.  For example, Essence does talk TO me occasionally.  She is my teacher, and she occasionally kicks my butt when I get too big for my britches, or I’m being particularly dense about something.  She does this because I asked her to.  I asked her to haul me back when I wander off track.  Teacher to Student.  It’s not a power-play, it’s a lesson that is given respectfully; I know the context and the Energy of the conversation and I am not being disempowered in anyway.   With Essence, it’s quite the opposite.  She doesn’t cause me Energetic Harm.

And this is what I want to talk about. 

I’ve been living in a situation where the words that a neighbour uses has caused me Energetic Harm.  It was not done on purpose, nothing at all was meant to diminish me or even make me feel uncomfortable, but after several months I reached the point where my Energy was seeping out of me like someone had turned on the tap.  I was feeling drained. 

My neighbour is a lovely person.  A great person who would give everything she has, to help another person in need.  She doesn’t have much herself, but I’ve seen her in action.  She is a good person.  She’s not on a conscious spiritual path – but she lives the best life she can.  Except for her speech.

She’s a naturally vocal person and I am not.  Loud noises are a trigger for my PTSD and she has a super loud voice.  She spends a lot of time on her balcony, on the phone to various friends and I cannot help but hear her private conversations.  I don’t want to but her voice carries as clear as if she is standing next to me so I constantly feel as if I am intruding.  And it’s not just the volume of her voice, it’s the cadence – she mainly sounds angry.  Even when she’s not, the cadence is as if she is arguing with someone, or being defensive.   And every 2nd word begins, probably with very little realisation, with an F.

(A good representation of how I see loud noise)

Have I said something to her?  Have I communicated how I feel about this?  Not really, not in plain language because she has the right to be who she is.  I am the one who is sensitive to loud noise.  I am the one who doesn’t want to hear another person’s life laid out on the table for all to listen to.  I am the one who feels battered by the constant swearing and who reads into her syntax and cadence the energy of anger and discord.  She is just a person who communicates in a certain way and doesn’t realise that from my perspective it feels like I’m being bludgeoned.

The reason I am sharing this is because I wanted to highlight how we can have an effect on others without realising it simply by the way we use the power of our voice and the words we use. 

And words carry Energy. 

Yes, we all know. This is a bit of a soap-box issue for me – I’ve written in my blog a few times on this topic, Way back in June I spoke on an IKoK Chat about it and I’ve given a few lectures on how you can shoot yourself in the foot by the words that you use, but each time I have been talking about you – about how your language use affects YOU.  I don’t think I’ve ever spoken on how your language use, the way that you communicate, can affect others.  But now I’d like you to think about exactly that.

We live in a world that depends upon communication, and as anyone who is aware of the Energy of such things will know, the vast majority of that communication at the moment is fear based.  And right now, when it has become so tricky to know if what you are being told is true, or not, it becomes even more essential to be discerning about who you talk with, or even to,  And who you listen to.

Making it even harder is the fact that so much mis-information carries a basis of truth – but a truth that has been twisted, embroidered, expanded until it bears little resemblance to the initial truth.  That kernel of truth running through that misleads good hearted people into falling down the rabbit hole into anger and fear and despair.  This is the communication that the Collective Consciousness of Humanity is dealing with.  This is the communication style that has brought us to such a low point in this reality. 

We talk, we use words, we communicate about coming together as One.  As working for the benefit of all.  And we use words, and syntax and cadence that says something entirely different.  The microcosm – my neighbour, a good soul who works to aid people yet still, in certain circumstance and unknowingly, causes Energetic Harm.  The macrocosm – Face Book, News media, the person you bumped into in the street.  And possibly, probably, you or me.

So what can we do about it? 

Previously, I’ve shared information about what to do so that your speech doesn’t affect your Energy and really, this is pretty much the same but with a focus on how your speech patterns affect others

I’d recommend first listening to yourself.  Record yourself on your phone and see what comes up.  Do you talk with others or do you talk to others?  Does that change depending on the context? Do you encourage conversation that brings everyone in on an even level?  Do you listen respectfully when someone says something you disagree with or do you try to show them that your knowledge is better?  Do you interrupt a whole lot?  This is mirror work that we must all do – and not just once. It’s an ongoing process. Clear Communication is the base work of the Conscious Evolution of Humanity.

I’ve been doing this mirror work and I’ve discovered that some of my habits could be construed as annoying to others.  I have a tendency to laugh in phone conversations but by doing this Mirror work, by LISTENING to myself, I’ve realised that that laughter is something I started to do many years ago to cover up my fears.  It happens with any phone conversation I have with any person, and it happens because a valuable form of information is removed for me – basically I can’t read face and body expressions which is something I learned as a very small child in order to be able to work out if a situation is fearful or not.  Those situations no longer apply but the cover-up laughter still remains.  It’s something I can now work on.  The mirror work is on self, but with the intention of bringing a new level of open communication with everyone around me. 

I am a single thread in the weaving of the Collective Consciousness of Humanity.  If I can improve my communication skills by being aware of the effects on others of my word choices and the way I deliver my message, I can have an affect on all other threads in that weaving. 

If we can each learn to communicate and interact with each other in a way that is more considered, respectful and less likely to cause Energetic Harm, we will be taking a step forward on the road of the Controlled Conscious Evolution of our Collective.

DID YOU KNOW: People living in areas with high levels of daytime noise had a 36% higher risk of being diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, and a 30% increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease than those living in quieter neighbourhoods.

Are You Spiritually Cutting Corners?

I’ve been observing people on this Spiritual path for some time now and there a few things that have become obvious as areas that are being missed by the vast majority of people who consider themselves to be Starseed or Lightworker.  These are the things I want to start with and as you read this, I hope you will start to understand how interconnected they all are.

There’s a reason that we use terminology such as “being on a Journey” or “following a Spiritual Path” and that reason is that you start with a single step, which is taken in Faith because you simply have no idea where you are going at that time.  You have no idea whether you are following the Path correctly or not, nor do you understand that even if you are following the right path, it is likely to be the hardest work you will ever do.  So you keep taking steps, sometimes forward, sometimes backwards; hopefully growing in knowledge and understanding. 

In the past you would have been taught by a Master who understands the Neophyte and where he or she is on that Path. This Master would be able to gently guide the student until he or she is able see where the path is leading, and to have the knowledge and wisdom to be able to step out by themselves.  This is a system that has worked for millennia.  Master guiding Neophyte and making sure that the Neophyte doesn’t get to see the next part of the journey until the current path is completed and fully understood.

Right now there are very few Masters and there are many, many Neophytes.  There are many Neophytes who think they are Teachers or even Masters.  Many of them.  For the Neophytes – and especially for Newbies on the Path – it is utterly confusing.  Who do you trust?  Who do you believe has the correct information?  Inevitably, because the Newbie and the Neophyte lack knowledge, there is a tendency to follow those who are charismatic – but not necessarily a Master.  And there lies Danger.

Nowadays we have social media  It seems to have taken the place of the Master, and the problem with social media and a Spiritual Path is firstly, that very few people get to be taught by a true Master and secondly, you get to see the terrain ahead.  You get to see other people who are on a similar journey. You get to swap ideas and knowledge with people who are, most likely, as untrained as yourself.  You get addicted to some topics – and they may not be the ones you came here to work with.   You take them on board and then you take a running jump to where you think the path is going to go.  Then, because you don’t have a Master to guide you, you cut corners in your spiritual education.  That means you don’t possess the tools to be discerning about certain information.  You can get caught in traps because something feels right but when you dig deep you may find that it is actually set up to ensnare the unwary.  This is happening a lot right now and you don’t have a Master to guide you to understanding where the traps are.

There are a lot of people out there in social media world who believe they are Teachers, Spiritual Leaders, Masters even – when, because of those cut-corners, they are really still at Neophyte level.  They simply do not have the solid knowledge, but their passion and their enthusiasm to share what they do know – which is not necessarily complete or even correct – is very strong.  Ego often steps in here.  I know.   I went through it.

When you cut those corners in your spiritual education, you can get tied-up with something that another Neophyte has told you and which you believe is true.  But that Neophyte may have also been mis-informed or mislead by their teacher who most likely also wasn’t a Master.  You can get side-tracked, mislead, go down rabbit-holes and all because you haven’t got the basic building blocks. 

So – I want to look at some of those building blocks.  Now, when I said that did your eyes roll?  Did you think Oh No – not again.  I know all the basic stuff.  I’m past that.  If you did – even for a moment, however advanced you think you are – then you REALLY need to listen to this because even if you’ve heard it before – you need to re-learn it.  You need to learn to LIVE it. 

First.  We’ve been talking a fair bit about the power of words.  Especially words such as ‘God’ and the Energy that is carried in this word.  This is very important information but it’s highly likely that learning about the Energy of the everyday words you unconsciously use is one of those leaps down the path I spoke of earlier. 

We know that words such as God carry powerful Energy – and not always for the good, but have you looked at the words you use everyday.  Do you consider them on a conscious level from a spiritual perspective?  We Krones tell you that you can’t separate the physical from the spiritual and your everyday word usage is a prime example of that statement and something you should work on from a conscious level from time to time. 

How often do you swear?  How often do you say Shit or OMG or fuck or worse? Yes – we all swear – we are human after all – but do you know how often you say ‘fuck’?  I know lots of people who say it roughly every 3rd or 4th word!!  It’s not uncommon.

And what about the H word?  Hate.  Think about that one. 

  • I hate my wrinkles
  • I hate cauliflower
  • I hate that kid down the street

Can you feel it?  The Energy?  Hardly uplifting is it?  And what about when you add in the F-bomb?

  • I fucking hate my fucking job
  • I hate the fucking rain
  • I hate never having any fucking money

Hmmm….  We all talk about keeping your Energy high; raising your vibration.  But – how does that happen when you keep introducing low frequency energy simply by talking?

What about how we have a habit of personal depreciation.

This one is something I have a habit of.  Yes, I swear occasionally, but self-depreciation?    This was taught to me at my mother’s knee and has been reinforced almost my entire life.  I would have a Master’s Degree in this if I hadn’t recognised it and set to work on it.  Yes.  I fall over.  I’m human.  The difference is that I recognise it.  Some things are so ingrained that it is actually traumatic when I’m faced with it.  And I aim to overcome it because the energy is very destructive. 

  • I’ve got a rotten voice (my main area of self-depreciation)
  • I’m not going to get that job.  What’s the point of even trying?

Think about what terms you use – and how you blend them together. 

  • I look fucking fat in that dress – I really hate it. 
  • Jeez – I’m so thick!

It’s really hard to maintain your vibration when phrases such as this are being said.

You get the idea.  We all do it.  We’ve actually been trained to do things like this – to believe we are less than perfect, that we are inept.  Not worthy.  How have we been trained?  Through advertising.  Since the end of the 2nd World War, there has been a conscious campaign to make us demean ourselves.  To feel that unless we have that so called perfect body, white teeth, a certain brand of shoes that we somehow fail.

The gate has been opened for us to produce low-frequency energy at a constant rate and without our ever being conscious of it.  Once the gate is opened it’s just a matter of feeding more misleading information, false news, conspiracy theories….. the flu.   All the stuff that is being seen in society right now and is causing such fear and anger and confusion – it’s an amazing source of low-frequency Energy.   Those emotions ramp up the energy that can be harvested by those who feed that way.  The Energy Vampires.  The Shadow Side Forces of Light.   I don’t need to tell who they are.

I mentioned that this fear energy was started after the 2nd World War – well, all this fear that our collective is currently swimming in was started even before that.  Now we have Starseed, who are here to help humanity, getting sucked in because there are forces out there, organisations who have built, over many years, very complex structures where you have no idea what is truth and even the most extraordinary lies are believed.  These are the energy vampires I am talking about.  And Starseeds are their energy source of choice. 

ENERGY VAMPIRES…  Now, I’m not going into big details on Energy Vampires right now, but we all know how you deal with them – you cut off their food source.  And Man are we giving them a good food source right now.  So first, have a think about the things you do in your everyday life.  Become conscious of the Energy that you are generating, perhaps without even realising it.  You are Starseed.  You are Lightworker.  Are you providing Energy for those darker forces?

I’ve been fortunate.  In many ways my spiritual journey has been at a full-on sprint.  I’ve run into walls, fallen down rabbit holes, stumbled and scraped my knees, had hissy fits, and more drama than Shakespeare could write about….. but my teacher has lead me through the journey in such a way that I didn’t cut corners, that I didn’t miss those important building blocks.  There have been a few things she has told me – key phrases that I live by and I’ll probably share a post sometime in the next week or so that may help you.  For now though, I’d like each of you to become aware of the Energy you are using in everyday life.

I’d like you to have a good look at the words you use, the posts you read on social media, the books you read, the movies you watch.  Look at those whom you consider to be your teacher.  Look energetically.  Feel for Truth.  Are they Masters and how did they grow to that level?  Ask them.   Could they too be Neophytes?  Many have come to mistaken beliefs because they too have been taught by those who have been mislead or who have cut corners.  I was told that it often takes about 20 years of study and experience to move between being an Neophyte and Teacher.  And then you have many more years of study, years gaining knowledge and wisdom before you could consider yourself a Master. It’s not like a university degree!! 

BUT…

Don’t stress it too much, don’t get tied up in it – just become more conscious, more discerning about where you focus your Energy.  If you are following a path, you must feel that there is a ring of truth in it – or you wouldn’t be following it.  Just ask,  “Does this path feel heavy?” – and I don’t mean heavy as in a hard lesson being learnt or tough times being lived through.  Feel the Energy.   If it does feel energetically heavy,  you should consider having a good look at what is being taught.

Powerful Words

Do you understand just how Powerful words are?

Think about it – words cut, they warm, they raise your spirits and they dash you to the depths.  They let you know you are loved and they are thrown at you in anger. 

There are some words that carry the Energy of millennia in them….   For example:  God is one of those words.  This is an obvious one to start with – think about it, what mental pictures does that word provide to you?  What emotions?  In the great picture of such things it should evoke Love, Compassion, Peace.  However you think of that term it is almost impossible to think of it without some kind of reaction.  Now expand it out and think about what has been done, by humans, under the umbrella of that name in the last couple of thousand years.  War, torture, fear, pain, suppression.  Now have another think about what Energy the word “God” holds when you think of all these things that have been done under this name.  Interesting eh?

What about the F-bomb?  Does that make you feel all warm and cosy, protected, cherished?  I doubt it.  So why is it used so much?  The shock value is well gone – to the point where I hear 5 year-olds saying it. 

I first really became aware of the power of words when, as a small child, I used the word “bugger”.  I had no idea what it meant, I was just repeating.  I got a good hiding, mouth washed with soap and a lecture on what exactly that word means.  Nowadays it has so little impact that it’s even been used in an extremely funny TV ad series a few years ago to sell cars here in Australia. 

Words are very interesting to me.  My brain tends to think better when I type things (I type at 90 words per minute, so I can get things down a lot faster than hand-writing).  It’s how I consolidate information, how I work out problems – I type them.  So I have been finding it really interesting to read some of the stuff that is circulating through social media.  Because there is a fair bit that contains words that say one thing and Energy that says the opposite.  Even for me, who loves the power of words and is also pretty skilled at Energy reading, there is a period of confusion.  I have to dig a bit deeper, go research the speaker, learn more of the meaning that he or she is putting into the words – and so often I am seeing a surface meaning that belies the deeper Energy.  Just as I said earlier – some words should say one thing, but dig a bit deeper and you find the history tells you a totally different story.

Words have power.  That is a given.  We are in a time of almost instantaneous manifestation and that means we cannot use words unwisely.  We give power to our thoughts through our use of words.  If you constantly talk of your woes then your woes will grow bigger.  Constantly minimise your personal power with the F-bomb and similar, and your personal power is diminished.  If you talk about how you have “XYZ” health issues – then the issue is very unlikely to heal.  Each time you utter such things you add Energy to them. 

It gets even trickier – and this is one area that Starseeds fall over, it’s an incredibly difficult concept for many people to understand:  you talk about being opposed to “this” or “that” or “the other” and you are still giving Energy to that thing.  You are drawing attention to it.  Feeding it.   A good example is “I fight against the darkness”  or “I work to support the Light”  Are these saying the same thing?  On the surface, yes they are.  Dig into the Energy and no they most definitely are not.  One sentence is heavy the other isn’t. 

For some, it’s a really hard concept.

All I am saying is to be discerning in the words you use.  Look for the Energy of the words you use and read – dig deeper than the surface.  There is often a totally different picture.  Words carry the power of the sword – don’t have your future cut from under you.
