I participated in and experienced my first sweat lodge, in this lifetime, this last Saturday to honor the Summer Solstice. It was an awesome experience and had some auspicious happenings. For instance, the sweat was held in a very sacred place were very ancient and powerfully healing energies and beings reside. These beings and energies assisted in the sweat. There was also a large storm that hit us right before entering the sweat lodge. The storm brought heavy rain, thunder and wind. It felt like an initiation into a new state of being, of consciousness. The rain was saying “let me cleanse you” and the thunder said “let me energize you” and the wind said “let me sweep the fear away”.
The sweat focused on healing the heart and remembering to reside our consciousness there at all times. I didn’t have any powerful visions like some people experience. My experience happened in the heart and through feelings that reside and originate from that place.
I truly feel that my heart has been healed and I find that it is wide open to receive all the loving energies of light around me and also to ground me to the Earth so that I can better serve her.
“The Goddess wants peace” and I am experiencing that peace.
I am grateful to the fire tender and the pourer for the wonderful, healing experience of the sweat lodge and to all the wonderful people who came into community with me to have this powerful experience.
Dear American Kabuki,
As we move forward into the coming months and beyond we are being challenged by the deconstruction of edifices of the declining world civilization to re-think what it means to be a human. We have outgrown our inherited definition and understanding of ourselves. The veils of illusion disappear as the scales of doubt and ignorance fall from our eyes. This age’s long epoch of duality has fulfilled its purpose for learning and soul advancement. It is now a time for us to remember much more precisely what we are.
We are beings of Light. There are no exceptions among us to this fact. We can only be beings of Light and nothing less. This Light is the Light of Pure Consciousness. We are aspects or fractals of this Light of Pure Consciousness that have taken on physical vehicles that we know as bodies and that we have identified as our selves. This time for such limited identification has passed. This way of knowing ourselves has served its purpose.
As Light of Pure Consciousness we participate directly and eternally in Source. Source ‘is us, is in us as us’. Source is both principle and person. But even as we make these attributions about Source we are merely making approximations. Source is beyond reach of any description. Yet our true nature is such that we are never satisfied in our seeking and searching and experimenting and longing unless and until we are safely involved with and invested in commitment to consciously and purposefully claiming our affinity with Source and our nature as Source.
We cannot know Source through the exercise of discrimination made by our minds. Source is indeed all that exists. There is nothing outside Source. When we set on the path of engaging in a discriminating process to discover whether or not there can be such a thing as Source we trick ourselves into illusion. We have separated ourselves in this discriminating process from Source but only in our minds. This illusion is logical, the work of the mind. It is not ontological, the stuff of reality. Even though we trick ourselves into thinking that we can decide whether or not Source exists, we are sustained even in this illusion by Source who/which ‘is us and is in us as us’.
And even though this trick of the mind allows us to think that we can out think and outsmart Source, Source is all that exists. This is the confusion we have known as duality. Duality includes the illusion that mind is the capacity or has the capacity to know Source or to know about Source.
The only way that we as humans can access Source directly and immediately is through our hearts. A beneficial construct for this type of direct access to Source, through our hearts, is the notion of ‘beholding’. In our hearts we can directly and immediately know or behold Source. This experience is beyond words and concepts. Many describe this experience as ‘feeling’ or ‘intuition’. It is immediate. There is no denying it.
One can of course choose to deny or distrust this direct experience, but that is just the mind and intelligence standing outside the direct experience.
Even the slightest effort to engage this direct knowing of Source through our hearts reaps ample rewards. The trajectory of our life shifts almost immediately. That which was can be no longer since one taste and touch of the Light of Pure Consciousness sets us on the path of desiring this pure and rarefied experience as a constant in our life. The allure of the external world loses its attraction. It is no longer satisfying or compelling. Only the sweet Light of the Beloved on High can satisfy the longing of the soul.
Once we set foot on this path of seeking the Eternal Beloved and setting aside all that interferes with our direct experience of the Beloved we can be said to be Home once again. This means that we have found our way back from the long exile each of us has had in the darkness of separation from the direct experience of Eternal Joy.
The access points to this direct experience are infinite in number. Any path that leads to the discovery of the longing in one’s heart that cannot be assuaged save by turning within to discover again this Beloved is known as the true path. The key that leads to the inevitable discovery of the Beloved, however, is desire. Desire is the movement of the heart to reunite in conscious union with the Beloved.
This desire must become stronger than any competing desire for anything of the world or for anything save the Beloved. This desire shifts the notion of Source from a concept or vague knowing to an insatiable longing for the Beloved. In truth Source and the Beloved are One and the Same. This though can only be known with clarity and conviction by the human heart set on union with the Beloved. This insatiable desire delivers freedom, a freedom that is joyful beyond description, a freedom that has no end.
Our inner realms…what a wondrous place.

What ‘inner space’ means in the context of this discussion is the fullness of your awareness that, when taken as a whole, constitutes your way of being in the world. It is from this ‘inner space’ then that you interface with your ‘self’ and all other beings in your world. This inner space has an overall tone and feeling. For some this space is quite immense. For others it may be very still and quiet or subdued. For others it may be very guarded. For some this inner space is full of adventure. In each and every case, perhaps without conscious intention, this inner space has been assiduously cultivated over the course of one’s life.
It is into this inner space that we bring all our new experiences and realizations. These new experiences take their place alongside all the other experiences one has had during one’s life. In the sum these experiences shape and define us. Those we have already had set the stage and define how and what we might experience next in our lives. Certain experiences prepare our inner space in ways that may hinder us in our search for new meaning. Other experiences propel us to new heights of awareness and integration.
For each one of us this individual inner space is also determined and defined by cues from our environment and our culture. We are shaped by our environments and we are also perhaps unknowingly bound by our cultures. Many of us become so intent upon excelling or succeeding within our environment and culture that we barely have the time and energy to measure whether our endeavors are fulfilling that which is the best and brightest about ourselves.
At this very time in our communal life together a concatenation of events and circumstances has occurred that allow us the opportunity to pause from our cultural pursuits to reflect about the road ahead. There is a growing awareness across the various sectors of our society and throughout the disparate hierarchies of our culture that a very deep and pervasive change is underway. The cultural edifices that have appeared heretofore to be comforting in their solidity are proving to be deteriorating and collapsing from within.
From another perspective however these institutions have outlived their purposes. They have gone from assisting us in the living of shared lives to being constraints that trap and ensnare the growing passion for freedom and sovereignty that is arising spontaneously among the masses of humanity across the entire spectrum of cultures throughout the world. These masses of people are expanding their inner space, as individuals and collectives, in demanding more room for their own freedom of self-expression.
Simultaneously humanity is expanding its perspective as a species. At the forefront of this particular expression and expansion of humanity’s inner space are those humans who now count themselves as citizens of the galaxy we know as the Milky Way. In this regard humanity has outgrown its understanding of itself as being doomed to imprisonment on a ‘prison planet’. In various and sundry ways then human beings are taking it upon themselves to expand their inner spaces.
This expansiveness is as fortuitous as it is timely. This expansiveness brings an abrupt halt to the notion that we Earth humans are alone in the Universe. This belief is at the base of Earth’s being the prison planet that it has been for ours and Earth’s other species. In the context of this extreme isolation mayhem has gone unchecked while compassion and human kindness are frequently seen as weakness or recklessness. That day for Earth has now passed.
As a species we are now being brought into our new role as galactic citizens. With this new role comes a marvelous extension and expansion of inner space into realms quite beyond any that we have imagined ourselves inheriting or occupying. While it is true that we are just now at the beginning of this new adventure, it is also true that we have in our star sisters and brothers, in our own Ascended Masters and in other groups of celestial’s highly beneficent guides, teachers and way showers. They await our individual and collective invitation in order that they can share with us their knowledge, their wisdom and their advanced technologies.
We have been greatly misinformed about the intention and the very presence of these unseen beings. The human mind lacks the capacity to discern the intention of these beings. The human heart however can know and does know instantaneously that these beings wait in the wings to assist us. Their respect for our free will is absolute. Their request is that we invite them to assist us and that we do this sooner than later.
Given their high purpose however they will wait until invited. Check-in with your heart to see whether now is the time for you to offer them your invitation. Should you decide in the affirmative that now is the time be assured that you will be surprised, delighted and vindicated that you made your decision to invite them at this time.
YES!….A wonderful example of people taking their power back. The healing of the psuedo military warrior to a true warrior of the heart. Let us all become warriors of the heart.
