Never The Same – BETTER!
Sacred not sterile!
Beauty in All things!
When our eyes are graced with wonder, the world reveals its wonders to us. There are people who see only dullness in the world and that is because their eyes have already been dulled. So much depends on how we look at things. The quality of our looking determines what we come to see.
John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace
The holy instant the news of the California lockdown/stay at home order entered my reality (months ago now)… I knew I would never be the same… that very instant.
[It is worth noting that it isn’t about staying home – that is something I do well and have done so by design for many years… it’s about much much more than that.]
Upon hearing the order, my Soul had a visceral and intense reaction felt in my body and beyond… in a hard to explain way… it physically hurt to live in a world where the illusion of separation was being forced on us in such a strange and new way and I knew instantly that something nefarious was at work. The powers that be have always loved to divide and separate us in a multitude of ways… but this physical 6-foot thing was just ludicrous to me and seemed to suffocate my Soul in ways I cannot possibly describe. The idea of people being weaponized in each other’s minds, the thought of people entering hospitals alone, without their loved ones, the complete disregard for the many miraculous ways we are All connected to one another (seen and unseen), the utter disregard for one’s choices on life and death – the loss of sacredness of life/birth and death/passing (as they attempt to replace it with sterility), the fear (rather than truth of how amazing our bodies really are) being instilled rapidly and dangerously into the collective… the blatant lie being touted that we can be separate… there just are no words really… just… … … [this would be too long to say all I really feel] …
So, I got busy for a few days with various projects, creating an array of things to busy the mind… but the thoughts still crept in… I wondered about humanity and how others would be handling this and/or what they may be thinking about or doing to process it all. I realized that people would probably just entrench themselves deeper into whatever point of view or stance they already had… so, perhaps, if you always believe what the government tells you then you just do so even more now, if you blame the left or right for everything then probably even more so, if you trust the news, if you question everything, question nothing, seek truth, keep a closed mind, keep an open mind, etc., etc., etc., … whatever you are used to/comfortable doing would just be done even more so now… I thought that would be the case in those early days… but, we are well beyond a few weeks now, and I would very much like to hope for more from and for humanity now. Sometimes things are meant to change us – deeply.
Honestly, I couldn’t have come even close to imagining the actual changes I would go through during this time, or how true the knowing that I was instantly and forever changed had been. Many years back, I had my eyes opened to a few very important lies we were being fed about the food we eat/nutrition, health/medicine, illness/wellness and much more and I began to expand my own vision for a life well lived, etc. That led to many changes and several roads less traveled that I hadn’t ever pictured myself on before (to say the least). But, I sort of considered those lies or untruths I had uncovered to be innocent enough and perpetuated on us simply because they didn’t know any better at the time, etc. I didn’t focus on the root or cause/intentions. I focused only on the solutions, knowing and choosing to live in the manner that understands that whatever I focus on expands, etc. I wanted to expand the best of Life!
Awakening has been on my radar for quite some time now… just in other ways than the recent eye opening ways I had not yet considered. I was so intentionally focused on the light for so long that I would not look at the darkness. Well, now I have, and I am not one to dabble (not at all), so it’s been a dark night of the soul mixed with rounds and rounds and layers and layers of reckoning and piecing puzzles together, etc.
The truth is out there… seekers will find it…
It is also within us…
It only lives within us!!!
I am really not one to focus too much of my energy in an effort to convince or cajole others into seeing things the way I do… I’m more into inspiration, spark ignition, encouragement, love, great conversations, letting the writing come through and sending it out in love, etc. …I know that people can only see through the veil of their own looking and just exactly what they are ready for…
We are in extremely interesting times and we are here witnessing it, not by accident, but, by design. My understanding of my purpose in all of this is still making itself known to me as I continue to decipher things in ways that make sense to me and deepen my innerstanding of what it means to be here. For me, I gather and gather and gather, always taking time to ask and lean back and allow space for illumination, and, as I go, I co-create and inhabit a sort of hybrid that feels like truth for me/All – always keeping an open heart and mind and spirit that will allow for expansion and/or correction, etc.
If you’re still reading at this point, maybe you’re looking for a little nudge because you know there is so much more… so, here it is…
open your eyes a bit wider
make your heart a bit warmer
focus so your vision may become a bit clearer
expand your knowing so that you may live it
raise your vibration
all these things, done, in some way that makes sense for your highest good and that of the collective… we will inhabit the world we envision for ourselves…this illusion of a disgusting, sick, separate, sterile, disconnected world they are trying to force on us simply won’t do… it will crumble. We must envision more and then go there together!
The great awakening!
We are a collective!
As we learn and grow, our reality shifts and shapes around us. It is nothing short of a miracle! How exciting! Let’s think of it and see it that way. Let’s go! Sending you love and joy and the absolute refusal to allow fear near you in any way, shape or form!!!!
Hi Stacy. It is so nice to see you back on WP. I appreciate you and your writing. This post speaks to me on so many levels, especially about the covid measures hurting my heart and soul. How do you manage to keep open and inspired through all this? I’m greatly concerned by what I perceive as the growing loss of freedoms, authoritarianism, chaos, and a world I don’t want to live in.

Hey Brad. So great to hear from you! Makes me so happy! You’re so kind! I appreciate you and your writing too! I so appreciate your support! What a time we’re living in! Yes, I agree it is all so very hard on those of us living from our heart and soul and so strange to be experiencing all of this – in so many ways… my creativity and openness has helped me through. I’ve been sharing in new to me and unexpected ways… but I feel ready to be back on WP more regularly for sure… helps so much to share and connect right now…
I had an immediate dark night of the soul so to speak and really dove into all kinds of darkness in this world I really wasn’t aware of… I’ve had an interesting journey recently and sort of opened up to all kinds of things… I believe we are truly on the precipice of a great step up in consciousness and the signs are clear in so many ways… I plan to share more and more about that here very soon. I completely agree that the way the world appears right now definitely brings out the feeling of not wanting to live in it… I remember back in March when things drastically changed I started having strange thoughts about being relieved my life was nearly at least half over and like terribly sad for the young people… but, I knew right away that these weren’t really my thoughts – not the real me and not how I truly feel or want to live… so, I just dove right in and got serious with my research and openness to new ideas and different ways of looking at how things have been and the various mechanisms in place to control us in so many ways… and so many layers.
Ascension is upon us and things will be changing very soon. I think things are going to look much worse before it’s obvious that they are actually getting better… it’s really just things coming to light… the light bringing so many things out in the open – 2020 is about full disclosure and I think we’re going to have to look at the darkness and through that see so much more light and awaken to so much more of who and what we truly are. I’ve always been a bit uncomfortable with shallow living here… so in some ways it’s comforting to know that people are having to go within and figure out more about life, etc. … but, it’s all about being comfortable with the uncomfortable during this time…
Long answer I suppose… it’s just that I totally understand where you’re coming from… but, I so believe in much much more on the horizon… we all chose to be here now and it really will be just a magnificent time to be alive as we proceed… we’re just having to come out of the shadows of all that has been going on around us while we were already focusing on the Light anyway… like how you answer your calling all the time to bring more beauty into the world in so many delightful ways…you bless so many!
Great to connect! Sending you lots of love! -S

Hi Stacy, thanks for the long and thoughtful reply. I have a glimmer of hope that this is a dying gasp of the old ways and regime, en route to a deeper awakening and blossoming. I hope you and others are right. I dove into the alternate info on the virus and discovered a whole dark world of power-hungry people that seem to control so much of our world that I don’t see how the average person has a chance at a life of love and freedom.
Thank you. I look forward to reading more about your discoveries and insights. Take care….🙏
