The Belonging


THE BELONGING

what is it like the moment before you release all memory of the painful past?
right then, when you fully feel the lifetimes of pointless thought 
invested in reciting litanies of “what I don't have,” 
“what I can't or won't experience,” 
“how I can't feel love because no one gives it the right way,” 
or “how I feel alone—with people or without them”?
right then, when none of it matters anymore?

what is it like when you release the twisted benefit of feeling bad
because you ignored opportunities to love and create joyfully?

what is it like when you come fully present
in spite of having matched other people's limited vision,
in spite of indulging in the stimulation of adrenaline,
in spite of the adolescent tendency to project rage and blame onto others
when really you were just afraid to feel the fear in them and you?

in that moment, the old is SO old
the mistakes so idiotic, archaic, antediluvian
even remorse seems stupid;
to punish yourself for wasting all that time
seems appealing for a tiny moment
then you suddenly know:
one present moment full of the real you
experienced fully by the real you
spreads out through all time
healing past, future, and all suffering souls
—the magic of the Midas touch—
and what freedom looms!

what is it like when you step into that overwhelming freedom
where you are entitled to any talent, creation, and reality?
where you have unlimited help
and are supported by the soft cloud of love on every side?
all you did that you thought so bad 
is now unseen, unknown, and nonexistent

the Others are You!
when you are clear they are too
and now the joke:
YOU created the suffering world
the Others suffered to be with you in your world
agreed with you out of love
and you agreed with the Others who played at suffering
to be with them—because you, too, love
now, no waste, no sacrifice
it was all a creation, all an imagination, all a belonging
now, the freedom is a belonging
now, the love-world is a belonging
the moment
was, and is, all, always
arising and dissolving in the Belonging

What Wags the World — A New Book


I am interviewed, along with 29 others, in this book full of conscious awakening stories. Here's the description and list of other interviewees:

Dear Penney Peirce

I am honoured to be publishing What Wags the World: Tales of Conscious Awakening, edited by Julie Clayton and Miriam Knight.  This is an extraordinary book, insightful and uplifting, allowing the reader to have an instant shift in consciousness.

What Wags the World records the experiences of more than 35 people—authors and filmmakers— from widely different backgrounds who have had profound, often mystical or paranormal experiences that gave them extraordinary perceptions of an interconnected and multidimensional universe. These otherwise “ordinary” people describe how these awakenings changed their understanding of the world and how it works, how their lives changed as a result, and pass on the gifts of wisdom, insight, and compassion they have gained.

What Wags the World is a topical and compelling collection of conscious awakening stories from more than 30 authors and filmmakers. Each contributor describes life-changing experiences that resulted in extraordinary transformation within their own life, and realizations of an interconnected and multidimensional universe. Their understanding of the world and how it works has been so profoundly changed that they feel compelled to share their story and pass on the gifts of wisdom, insight, and compassion they have gained.

Miriam Knight is the founder of New Consciousness Review (ncreview.com)—a showcase for the people, books and films inspiring personal and global transformation, and host of New Consciousness Review Radio. Julie Clayton is an editor of NY Times bestsellers and award-winning books on new consciousness, and Reviews Editor for New Consciousness Review.

The Present Moment Is Now an E-book!


The Present Moment: A Daybook of Clarity and Intuition was first published in 2000. Just as it came out, the publishing company was bought by a bigger publisher and all the editors and marketing people left or changed jobs. So the book, which is really lovely, fell through the cracks and never quite made it. After many years of lying dormant, the book has now been re-edited and updated, and it has been redesigned for the various e-book formats: iPad, Kindle, and Nook—with a brand new cover. 

Here's the official description of the book:

We're more distracted, fragmented, pressured, and rushed than ever before. By going so fast, we lose touch with our bodies and nature, where the wisdom of our souls resides—as a result, we often make unhealthy choices that don't support our life purpose, the people in our lives, or the longevity of the planet.

To survive and grow, we must turn within to find the quiet center and our own authentic truth, unaided by media and technology. To do that we must rebuild our "intuition muscle," and learn to enter the present moment, the only place we can contact our soul and hear "the mind in the heart," the voice of appropriateness.

The Present Moment is filled with information about: beginner's mind, paying close attention, stillness, centeredness, finding connection to life, living a life of inquiry, maintaining focus, going with the flow, decoding the nonverbal information from the body, trusting the right brain, direct experience, and intuition.

The Present Moment is a perpetual daybook that puts the principles of mindfulness and intuition development into a daily practice format, emphasizing the "power of now" to bring clarity to mind and heart. Each day of the year has an affirmation and an exercise to practice one key idea, accompanied by a story that brings home the message of the affirmation. The book’s front material provides description of key aspects of living a spiritual life. The foreword is by Dr. Marcia Emery, an expert in intuition, dreams, and healing.

The Present Moment is a great companion to a journal practice or it can be used to provide daily inspiration, either day by day, or in oracle fashion by simply opening the book anywhere.

The Present Moment guides readers in developing the art of paying attention. By applying intuition and mindfulness every day, readers gain reliable access to a wealth of inner wisdom. By feeling the presence and purpose in all things, even in the space around us, readers can know the unified field as a reality, and take responsible action based on their interrelatedness with the whole.

See samples of the daily entries at www.penneypeirce.com. The homepage has a Present Moment Practice oracle button in the righthand margin. Click on it any number of times to find a focus for the day.

Qualities of the Spiritual Path


When you become fascinated by the Mystery, search for answers that lie beyond the superficial explanation, or yearn for experience that contains greater peace, compassion, joy, and spontaneity—you're on a spiritual path. Your spiritual path may revolve around a religion or it may be more mystical and nature-oriented, but all spiritual paths contain certain common elements:

A conscious focus to better the conditions of your life by improving your character, embodying noble truths, and being responsible for what you create in the world—"first, do not harm."

The acknowledgment that there is an internal, intangible, underlying nonphysical reality that serves as the blueprint for the external physical one.

The personal discipline and follow-through to steadily achieve better physical health, mental attitudes, and emotional equilibrium.

A dedication to eliminating fear or subconscious blocks from your perception and experience.

An open-mindedness toward learning new ways of thinking, acting, and being so you can live in greater alignment with the natural laws, which produces harmony.

A commitment to being authentic—you want who you are and what you do to be the highest expression of your soul that you can attain in any given moment.

An ongoing yearning for unity with your own soul, the divine, and all of life.

Once you realize you're on a spiritual path, everything in life becomes fodder for your spiritual growth, and the special states of awareness that allow you to glimpse the inner worlds of spirit—like intuition, meditation, creativity, and dreams—become especially valuable.

I Am Original

Still editing my daybook, The Present Moment, into its new ebook format, I came across this entry which spoke to me:



I am original.

Today, let yourself bend the rules, take a chance, rebel, be inconsistent, stand out. Give yourself permission to be “new in the now.”

What is so attractive about being a misfit? We Americans glorify our James Deans, Marilyn Monroes, Janis Joplins, Neal Cassadys — our Thelma and Louise outlaws, our rebel geniuses. The American mystique reveres those who burn bright and die young, who are talented yet wounded or deeply confused, those who are vulnerable and shy but show up anyway and it kills them to offer their essence.

Maybe we all feel like misfits — our country is a land of misfits who left their various tribal cultures to make new lives. We champion not fitting in, and being stand-out individuals. I feel this way too — fitting in is like a sacrifice, as though the culture has all the power and once I acquiesce totally to the tribal mind, it will tell me who I can be, and I'll slowly suffocate.

I want to make sure I'm not buying into a myth that keeps me limited, though. I like what medical intuitive Carolyn Myss says about pulling out all the power cords we have plugged into the tribal mind, and sourcing ourselves directly from our own divine nature instead of from the culture. That when we dare to not feed the culture in the manner to which it's become accustomed, by not automatically buying into society's traditions, it rejects and betrays us. This frees us, but it takes continuing courage to buck the system and not do what's expected.

We misfits have to be careful, though, about getting caught in a mystique based on victimization. Sure, it's challenging at first to express a different vision, an unusual creative turn, especially to audiences who are used to the status quo. We can get so used to rejection and criticism that we glory in it and miss the next phase of the process where suffering is transformed into love.

Instead of being a victim misfit, we can take the role of teacher, inspirer, leader, healer, entertainer. When one person expresses a new view, the tribe reacts to suppress the disruptive force. But when that person speaks lovingly, inclusively, patiently, encouragingly to the others, they get interested. "Do you mean, I could do something like this, too? Do you mean, I can be free to express and create from my own inner vision?"


This is how the misfits become shamans and holy people, artists and builders, modeling a new way for society to evolve in alignment with inner truth and universal laws, instead of resisting to their death society's external rules and regulations.

Repeating Cycles, Progressive Spirals


I found this piece that I wrote in 2000 as I was editing my Present Moment daybook into ebook format. It's what's happening to me now as well!!


The little me doesn’t know,
but the Big Me does.

Even if your personality and mind don’t know what to do, the real you — your soul — always does. Let go of holding opinions today and see what wisdom takes their place.

There is something at work in my dreams, and somewhere out in the far reaches of my aura; something is teaching me, soldering my circuit board, weaving in new colored threads, tying beautiful knots with my loose ends. Someone is sending a new song into my cells through silent sound; a tuning fork with the tone of my new name is being struck. It's a new blueprint, a new way of being organized, a new life dream.

I sense the dissolution of the old, as my memory fades repeatedly, as my past seems like it could belong to someone else, as I'm not convinced about what I say. I am being drawn elsewhere — is it the future? Another dimension? Am I being seduced into boredom and spaciousness to be ready for the next kaboom? Am I becoming enlightened, or senile?

My daily habits, my long-standing ideas about Who I Am — I hear my voice echoing hollowly as I speak or even think these old, boring thoughts. Somehow, I know I am heeding the call, in spite of my professed ignorance. I am turning toward the unknown that knows better than I what the next creation might be, who my new friends might be, what my new place might be.

The call is a silent one, asking me to reinvent myself in a way that is much more powerful, yet subtle, than ever before. More faith, less ambition. More passion, less meaning. More involvement, less attachment. More color, texture, rhythm, and tone, less overstimulation. More me, more us, more one, more true, greater and smaller, dramatic and invisible, social and secluded, domestic and exotic. Someone teaches my mind. Someone inspires my mind to be the servant, not the tyrant, at long last. Poet David Whyte says, "Idleness is a discipline of its own."

It's Always Autumn Somewhere on Earth

IN AUTUMN

The Perceiver in me
is weary of old conversations made of concepts
and brilliant insights that fortify or blame;
Opinions are boring, problems laughable,
kneejerk reactions so unnecessary.
The story does not want to be told again.
It is exhausted and grey,
words will not clump or rise to be animated,
the puppet has died.
These eyes and ears turn in
to the peace that dwells in cells.

A preference exerts itself:
wide-open awareness like vast virgin landscapes,
puppy love, naïve exploration of the small and the ordinary.
The Perceiver ignores the things of the world
to notice the things of the world.

The leaves are yellow and falling from the elm
early this year,
Their falling brings the silence,
reminds me that I crave calm low light.
Apricot glow.
The minimal.
The economical.
Simple presence.
And I can rest.
I can love.
I can live on love alone
and breathe
and be

and that's the magic carpet
I shall ride out on.

11:11 — A Possible Interpretation


Many people have been seeing 11s on the digital clock dial, especially 11:11. In fact, there are websites devoted to it! And there are many ideas about why we are seeing this collectively now.

My intuitive hit on 11:11 (or in with caplock on: !!:!!) is that it is a symbol for as above, so below; that there is a twinning between the nonphysical and physical worlds, that we are having the revelation now that the worlds aren't separate but mirror each other exactly, in fact, do the same thing in any moment but at different frequencies. 

11 as I see it in numerology is the nonphysical version of the 2, which operates in the physical world as the symbol of duality and relationship. 11 connects us to the nonphysical and allows us to know ourselves at higher frequencies, to shift revelations from those worlds into this physical world. It takes us to the extremes of any opposition, exploring the dark and the light. 

The two 1s on each side of the imaginary barrier (the colon), to me, represent the parallelism, and thus commonality, between individuals, as 1 is about individuality. On earth we are twins with each other individual (there is brotherhood/sisterhood) and in spirit we are all twins, or part of the collective consciousness. I feel 11:11 is representative of a stage of consciousness on the way to understanding unity.

The Anti-Google Mass Book Digitization Campaign Goes Global

Authors Malcolm Gladwell, J.M. Coetzee, Michael Pollan, Margaret Atwood, Peter Carey Support Lawsuit Against Google’s Theft of Books Through Digitization

New York, NY- Prize-winning authors, international rights organizations, and legal experts Monday joined the Authors Guild in fighting what they call Google’s dangerous and unprecedented violation of copyright law. They filed eight stinging friend-of-the-court briefs in support of the Guild’s appeal in Authors Guild v. Google, agreeing that Judge Denny Chin’s decision in the case should be overturned.

“Google’s ambitions respected no borders,” said Authors Guild president Roxana Robinson. “Millions of copyrighted books by authors from every major country were swept in to Google’s scheme. As the new filings demonstrate, not just authors but also photographers, visual artists, songwriters, and publishers around the world find it particularly galling that a wealthy American company would try to find a way to use their creations for free.”

Authors from Australia, Canada, and South Africa joined one brief, including Margaret Atwood, Thomas Keneally, J.M. Coetzee, Yann Martell, Peter Carey and Michael Frayn. In a separate filing, an array of international rights organizations warned that if this massive expansion of “fair use” is allowed to stand it turns the United States into a rogue nation, in violation of international norms of copyright.

Copyright experts, including Marybeth Peters, Former U.S. Copyright Register, Jon Baumgarten, Former General Counsel, U.S. Copyright Office, and professor Raymond T. Nimmer, filed briefs as well.

American authors Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Pollan, Karen Russell, Ursula K. Le Guin, Ron Larson, Taylor Branch, Tracy Chevalier, Lawrence Hill, Diane McWhorter, Robert Christopherson and Tracy Kidder submitted a brief that highlights how Google has left little room for authors and publishers to develop partnerships and licensing opportunities of their own.

And fifteen U.S. groups, representing textbook authors, songwriters, visual artists, illustrators and photographers, filed briefs of their own. These organizations collectively represent thousands upon thousands of individuals dependent on copyright for their livelihoods. Their conclusion sums up the strong case against Google: “One group cannot simply be allowed to take from creators and give works to the public for free with impunity. This undermines the very purpose of copyright law and ultimately of fair use.”

The Authors Guild first sued Google in 2005, citing “massive copyright infringement” in developing its Google Book Search database. The Guild filed its brief on April 11, 2014 with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Court in Manhattan.

Times of Stillness


I'm passing this along, as it is very simple and clear:

Hilarion’s Weekly Message, March 23-30, 2014from Marlene Swetlishoff

More and more people on Earth are awakening to discover that the world is in a state of rapid metamorphosis. They look around and see their neighbors embracing concepts that they were not open to before. Everywhere, this awakening energy is clearing ages-old cobwebs from the consciousness of humanity and it is not an easy process. It is very uncomfortable to watch the events taking place in the world and within one’s own personal world, and each individual is struggling at this time to establish and maintain inner equilibrium.

This creates a feeling of stress and tension in the collective consciousness energy field which affects the individuals who are sensitive to the energy flows around them. This tension and anxiety is felt in the solar plexus/stomach area of the human body and is a sign that it is time to get out in nature and stand or sit near a member of the tree family and ask that these tense and anxious feelings be lovingly transmuted and dissolved from within you. The tree family is extremely adept at providing this service to all of humanity and it allows them to be in divine service and to work upon their own evolutionary path.

It is very helpful to pay attention to all of the life forms that coexist around you, and all of the elements. During these unstable energetic shifts, it is best to make one’s life as simple and uncomplicated as possible. By training your mind to go into a quiet state without getting involved in complex and abstract thought patterns that are constantly being stimulated by the communications one receives each day, and doing simple chores around one’s home or yard, one can avoid the feeling of overwhelm which tends to drain a person of their life force and higher energies.

Taking time out to relax often is also most important and just laying down and putting your feet up for a half hour can replenish your vitality. Seek out beauty in all its wondrous forms and do so with passion in your heart. Watch the sun rise and set, the cloud formations, the stars in the night sky, the birds and insects, the flora and fauna. Life thrives and pulses around you but you must become the observer of this and gain the sublime gifts that it brings you.

You must take times of stillness to realign with your higher self and your inner guidance. Practice deep breathing each day to fill you to the root chakra, holding the breath for a moment and then expel the breath knowing that all stale energy is being released. Moving your body many times a day in stretching activities or walking also helps to move the energies through your meridians without becoming stagnant and creating blockages.

Clean out your closets, your cupboards, your garage and other areas of your home and remove all that you no longer use and you will find that by doing so, it creates a greater feeling of well being within you and this will help keep your energies flowing in a positive and constructive manner. Making room for the new, physically, energetically and symbolically, fills one’s soul with spiritual renewal and rebirth.

Until the Earth’s core is activated and sustained by the great light from the cosmos on a stronger level, you as divine energy conduits must continue to anchor and ground your light into the Earth on a daily basis. This activity done several times a day by each of you helps more than you can know to keep the Earth’s energies in greater stability. In effect, you are giving the Earth the boost of spiritual energy that she most needs. Your love sustains this magnificent being as she transitions from lower density into the higher, more rarefied levels of light and consciousness. In turn, you are finding that your every need is provided for, as and when you need it and as this becomes more noticeable, you will be filled with the knowing that you are loved beyond measure.

How quickly the world will move into the new paradigm when the energy of divine love intensifies in its frequency level. When each person is in a state of joy and bliss, it will be very difficult to convince them of the old stories that have been told throughout the ages.

When each member within the human family feels good within themselves, then this will be reflected back to them and great strides will be taken as the Earth moves into the new dawn of the golden age, where there are no limits to the positive possibilities and potentials that can unfold.

The Worry Addiction


Perhaps it is a carryover from last year's roto-rootering, clutter-clearing, realigning-with-core-truth energy. This year feels like a continuation of the "reveal," of what the soul wants to do now that it's more in charge. Some people are experiencing the red carpet being rolled out, with new creative projects looming and even seizing them, moving them into new enthusiasm and a productivity not driven by will power. Others are still in the grip of what appears to be an addiction to worry and panic. Perhaps it is really an addiction to the left brain and the fear-based worldview it perpetrates.

It occurs to me that worry may actually be a positive thing if we can reframe it. After all, worry tells you about what would bother or upset you, and that is useful information. It speaks to you in a loud inner voice about what might happen that is negative, or what might not happen that is negative. Those ideas come from two places. The left brain may be speaking about something that would threaten the status quo and cause the experience of heightened fear or terror, even bordering on the possibility of annihilation. It might start as something fairly innocent, however. 

For example, the neighbor to the back of my new house now shines some giant, ultra-bright floodlights out into her yard at night, which come into my kitchen and bedroom, blinding me and making sleep difficult. They're bothersome, and even painful if I look at them. The upset begins with physical discomfort, but if I pay attention, it deepens into a feeling of being invaded and helpless. To find a comfortable way to exist, I have to install blackout blinds and curtains, and live defensively, which is not how I want to be in my life. I can't connect comfortably to the outside world and nature. There is fear there under the surface—fear that I will be forced to live in a contracted way just as I am beginning to truly expand into a larger identity. That is akin to a feeling of imprisonment, of "soul murder." See how fast an innocuous thing can become truly life-threatening?

But the worry may also come from the soul, showing you something that is important to you—and the left brain interprets it negatively. What if we turned it around to see the positive symbology and meaning? Perhaps my soul is showing me that I need to expand my sphere to include my neighbor, make friends with her, find a win-win solution. Perhaps she is afraid of a home invasion. Maybe we can help each other. Maybe the extra "light on the subject" (me and my new location and life) is a sign for me to look more deeply into the potentials of what I'm doing here in Florida (since life seems to have plopped me here, somewhat unwillingly). Maybe I'm becoming more visible and have to learn to be more comfortable with that.

So, wherever you're caught in worry or panic, try writing down the negative or limiting statements your left brain is declaring. Try penetrating down to the underlying experience that scares you. Write down those sentences. Then turn around the statements to see what you, the soul, are trying to show yourself. What about this might lead you to a larger reality? What action might be indicated that could dissolve the contracted energy? 

If you have become addicted to the left brain's negative view, and the feeling of the adrenaline rush that comes from fear, ask yourself very clearly: Is this the way I want to spend the limited time I have in this lifetime? Stalling myself? Living in a tiny box? If the answer is "No," then every time the tendency to fall back into those negative default settings occurs, pull the plug, perhaps even get mad at the tendency and yell, "Get out!" Then, re-imagine the enthusiastic reality your soul has begun showing you. It's a longstanding habit we are breaking, and it takes practice to turn around the thoughts and internal dialogue. But we can do it! There is enthusiasm, even passion, under every worry.

New Symptoms of Transformation

I have recently been having an email conversation with a woman (L, noted below) who is experiencing many new symptoms of transformation. We agreed to post the conversation, in case any of you are experiencing similar things. I invite you to email me with your experiences and perhaps I'll do a Part 2 after I gather more stories. . .

L: Penney, I know you’re busy but I was led to email you this morning. I experienced something last night that was odd but wonderful, and was wondering if it could have been a universal event. I was watching a show when suddenly something shifted—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It was a major shift, as though I was transported from somewhere else and placed in my home! I missed parts of the show and am not even sure I was watching a show before this occurred. I physically felt my body being “placed” and there was a feeling of alignment. I knew this was right and a veil of peace washed over me. Have you experienced anything like this? What ever it is, it's wonderful! 

P: I can feel what you're describing and it feels like an exaggerated blinking out and back experience. We all rock in and out of form constantly, but this feels like you energetically stayed out longer, allowed yourself to realign with a higher frequency pattern, like a spiritual chiropractic adjustment, then snapped back to your "normal" reality. It feels like you slowed the process down, so you become more conscious of its dynamics, like there was a deliberate and higher sort of consciousness applied to the re-formation part of your process, so you experienced it as being “placed.” Watch now for subtle changes in the way things work over the next few weeks, as the new higher-frequency pattern begins to function, and let me know what you notice. I feel like this happened to me for most of last year, but stretched out over many months.

L: I'm not sure what has happened to me but please tell me I didn't just go crazy—and I'm very serious about that. Ever since that "blink," I hear the prayers of the world, and the heartbeat of the earth. These were happening for a short time before the blink but now I "know things" that I don't want to say I shouldn't know, but things are so clear! It’s like walking through a sleeping planet. I am so filled with an extreme love that I cry over this feeling. I know what it was like before humans manifested everything that we have today and polluted our spirits. I hardly know who I was just a short time ago. I don't want to sleep and I awake every night at 3 am.  

I KNOW that everything I desire is already here and I desire nothing. By the way, I have a terrible headache! I'm sure I was somewhere else last night. It felt as though my body was physically there. I would appreciate any insight you have, even if it's "get to a mental institution!" LOL.

Wait—maybe I shouldn't be laughing out loud at this. Was this a shift into a 5th dimension? Was this an activation of some kind? Please tell me I'm not the only one experiencing this! 

P: I never am sure about the terminology people use to describe dimensions. I would simply say that you had a conscious experience of going into the nonphysical, spiritually-based realm. I like your idea of walking through a sleeping planet though! I often feel this, like other people are moving in slow motion or speaking a language that is in an ancient dialect, with old phraseology. Or, there is a sort of suspended animation with some people and a very heightened action with others on higher frequencies. At the same time, it’s like walking through love; the love is like slippery, shiny air. I can notice it or forget to notice it, and the world changes in an instant depending on which thing I pay attention to. The life I left in California, which I was so steeped in for so long, now seems like a dream, and the new life seems like a dream as well! 

Similarly, I feel little need to push to make my work “work.” Where ambition used to be, there is now simply a feeling of enjoyment and excitement. There are no shoulds left. I sense everything is “just right” and that it will become ever more “just right.” I don’t need the same things I used to need and am happier with what I have and with what comes.

L: You had asked me to share some of the changes I experience with this shift. First: Waking every night at 3 am. I no longer feel as though I'm a spiritual being in a human body but that this body is becoming spiritual. Almost an interweaving of the two. The physical body no longer holds the limitations of boundaries. I trust you will understand this. 

P: Yes, I have had the waking at 3 am thing for many years. It was often accompanied by remembering a visionary dream. But it evolved into a pattern where I was unable to fall asleep and was often simply awake at 3am. Now, my sleep patterns change often. I sleep different hours, and sometimes none at all. And yet, I am not exhausted the next day—as my left brain would have me believe. I sense much energy adjustment going on during the evening hours when my left brain is quieter. I too feel like the field is my body.

L: Next: Words that would normally upset me seem to have no emotions attached to them. They are just words. When something starts to align with a frequency lower than what my higher self desires, there's like an "automatic correct" that activates to adjust my thoughts. 

P: I think this is part of us moving beyond old perceptual patterns. People who react with anger, meanness, or pettiness, just seem boring to me anymore, or I feel drawn to give them a blessing. Part of this is a lack of interest in the news; I don’t want to add attention to the negativity. The old patterns of taking offense seem to be a waste of time and energy. Better things to do!!

L: Third: The two worlds or realms don't always exist separately anymore. What I used to hear and see using "spiritual gifts " are now just appearing! For example, sounds that are so clear that everyone should hear them, but they don't. People and objects appear from nowhere. I know these things weren't there before. Such as someone walking down the street, or a random object appearing on the table I just cleared off. Coincidences that I know are not! 

P: Exactly! I find a synchromesh sort of occurrence of the answers to my sometimes idle thoughts. I need/want to find a new bedskirt for my bed, and the perfect one appears at the consignment store, discounted that day to $3! It happens with timing for appointments, and how and when I answer emails. Clients say sentences that are the perfect answer to something I was thinking about. Everything seems coordinated by a higher force.

L: Fourth: I can't even imagine the person I used to be just a short time ago. 
Things I longed for, I no longer desire. Everything seems, for lack of a 
better word, "perfect”—in a universal way. This has all happened so quickly but without the experience of time. And by the way, I have a white owl, actually very beautiful, and an enormous hawk, as my animal spirit guides. They both appear during the day and night together. These are real birds! Pretty wild, huh!

P: I can relate to all the things you say! I had a hawk come down onto a low branch of a tree next to my kitchen window recently. He just sat there and looked in the window at me. As to “my” history, and “my” story—I feel I continue to hold my history to myself as a way to be real to others, to have something in common with others, and though I can project my attention back into the “memories,” and feel all the sensations associated with the experiences, I can feel how I’m not at all invested in them, or the meanings I may have attached to them previously. I feel a deep sense of satisfaction, really, with remembering, gradually, the fullness of all the lives I’ve lived, and who I really am. 

L: These are such dramatic changes and without knowing others are experiencing these same things, I feel it could take a toll on us.  Now I know why I've connected with you! Did this all happen to you quickly or over a year? I know time doesn't exist but it seems so compacted like there's so much more to come. 

P: All these symptoms of the transformational shift have been happening to me for many years, but intensifying recently, especially last year in 2013. If you read back through my Oracle Letters (on my homepage), you’ll be able to track my perceptions.

L: Here’s a new one: The 1 am Metamorphosis. LOL. For about a week now at 1 am, I wake up and have to literally get out of bed and stretch my spine. I continue this for 5 to 10 min. I thought this must look like one of those shows where the guy turns into a werewolf! But I was given the vision of a butterfly coming out of a cocoon. I'm not talking about a little stretch. My spine feels like it's getting longer. I feel—"grander" Is the word I'm given, which is pretty cool since I'm barely 5' tall! 

Also my body is tired but then I want to take a walk. I don't feel like doing anything but then I feel as though I need to be doing something and this carries some urgency with it, but it's OK if I don't. Does this make sense? So, OK if you have the stretching or the "do this, don't do that, and it's all OK", (LOL) then I think we are really on to something here.

If we make our own realities and things are appearing and disappearing, what do you think happens to the people in our lives who no longer fit with our vibrations? Do they just disappear since we are creating a new world? 

I was shown a vision of two worlds being pulled apart like 2 pieces of plastic wrap stuck together and being separated. The top one was transparent and the bottom one was heavy. The top transparent one is the new higher vibrational world and the bottom is the lower vibrational world. The lower will remain a "training ground" while the higher will be... I suddenly have no words here but instead of erasing this I'm to leave it for you. 

P: I also have begun to be conscious of getting all the kinks out of my spine; I seem to do it every few hours all day long, and especially first thing in the morning, when I do lots of stretching. Perhaps we are sensitive to any blocked flows of energy now—wanting the body’s information without having it jam up. 

When people no longer fit with your reality, I sense they simply move to a different part of our spherical field, and we pay attention to other frequencies. Other people, who match those frequencies, begin to materialize in our personal realm. The other people aren’t gone, but they aren’t the focus of our attention. Our reality adapts to the focus of our attention.

Your vision of the worlds being pulled apart is quite accurate, I think. I have had visions about this as well. I have written about this vision several years ago; it was published in my newsletter in 2003. 

Here it is:

Becoming Transparent:Preparing to Live in the Permanent Present Moment

Copyright by Penney Peirce 2003

The dream woke me at exactly 3am, as is the case with every visionary dream I've ever had. In it, I was camping in the desert, "holding a spot" for what seemed like a week or two, just waiting and maintaining a steady vibration, following some sort of higher, intuitive orders. My mother was with me, and as we lounged in our folding plastic chairs, she told me she was worried about the future. I was reading a book, written in a series of different sized dots and circles. Looking at the pages, they were literally covered edge to edge by a field of these spheres, some yellow, some blue, some purple—looking very much like a close-up of round cells under a microscope. And yet, it made perfect sense to me and I read it by tracking through the field, following various sequences of rotations of the spheres, like tracing the flow of oil through a complex series of gears. 

I said to my mother, "Oh, Don't worry. It's not going to be that bad. See? It says right here. . ." And I proceeded to describe what the book depicted. There was a "cosmic event" happening WAY WAY out in the far reaches of the universe. In fact, it had already occurred and had set in motion this particular sequence of rotations, where the collision or spin of one celestial body affected another, and then another, and another, until the wave of spiraling energy would reach our own solar system and planet. When that happened—and it wouldn't be too much longer now—the book said that people would attribute the result to erroneous causes. 

The dream scene suddenly shifted and I was standing in a room talking to a male colleague, a healer who was dressed in a gray business suit who had just returned from the big cities of the East Coast. "Those suits are really solid!" he exclaimed. And I thought, the business mentality is hard to get through, or maybe the bodies themselves are like suits. He looked at me and said, "Well, you look fine; you're right on schedule." I looked down and my left arm was transparent up to the shoulder. As I saw this, memory suddenly flooded into me about what was really going on. We were approaching an important time in the history of the planet. There would be an "event," related the the cosmic event from the far-distant universe, that was called "The Void." I knew I'd been living all my lifetimes, and preparing diligently, to be able to live through this event. In my consciousness, it was something exciting and joyful, yet I knew many people would lose their lives. "How could I possibly have forgotten this!" I thought. 

Then a voice said, "To survive The Void you must become like the void." And I knew then that we were all in a process of becoming transparent, every inch of us. To be transparent meant to hold nothing to yourself, to release all ego, to be soft and adaptable, porous and permeable. To be transparent meant that we would learn to live in a state without the need for fixed identity, without a set history, without limitation, without beliefs, without fear and reactionary behavior. Those things make us opaque, solid, and dense. 

During The Void, which I sensed to be somewhere in the first twenty years of the 21st century, there would be a powerful phenomenon akin to the stopping of time. It would primarily occur in the higher dimensions, the mental and emotional planes, yet it would have an effect on our physical bodies. I knew that as we experienced this "Pause," we'd have no idea how long it was lasting, because time would not exist. It's like we would blink out, then blink back in again. Those of us who had become transparent—in other words, who were fluid, fully in the moment without expectations or projections into future or past, and who held no fixed ideas—would simply flow with the situation, not experiencing much of a disruption to our ordinary way of being, since we already knew the sort of timelessness or timefulness inherent in the present moment. 

But people who were still living with the concept of linear time, projecting into the future, rushing to meet deadlines or dipping nostalgically into the past, would have their worldview shattered. There would be a tremendous flood of energy running through the planes of existence, through the "energy bodies," and anywhere there was too much holding on, or holding back, or holding out, that mental fixation would act as an impurity in the system, causing an implosion. With no holding patterns, the energy would simply flow through harmlessly, giving the "transparent" person an experience of heightened divinity and light. Those who were still "opaque" with fear and controlling behaviors, would likely die from the overload. 

And yet, there was no tragedy. Those who died physically in the blink of an eye, would not realize what had happened consciously, and they would reincarnate right away onto a planet that was of the same vibration as the one they'd just left. Their earth would function in much the same way as it always had. Those who blinked back in, having absorbed the huge new dose of light, would reincarnate onto an earth that was more etheric, yet seemed just as familiar to them. Neither group would suffer alienation. In effect, there would be a bifurcation of the world, and two planet Earths would exist side-by-side in parallel realities. 

Since this dream, which happened about ten years ago, I have wondered about the process of becoming transparent, wondered if I was making any progress. In the past few years, though, I've had a stronger sense that this was indeed happening. More people understand what it is to live in the present moment, and how this kind of centered consciousness literally changes the rules of the world. We're learning about the new paradigm consciousness, and how powerful the unified field is as a medium of awareness. The more we keep ourselves centered in the now, the higher the frequency of our consciousness. The higher the frequency of our consciousness, the less capacity we have to suppress fear and hold negative beliefs. This means that all the interferences, the impurities in our systems, are now rising to the surface to be dissolved. Misunderstandings ask to be re-understood. 

We will see an increase in voluntary loss of ego and overly-structured identity. More people will become beginner shape-shifters, reformulating themselves easily again and again, as the needs of the collective pull new interests and desires up from the collective unconscious. If you are in a period of loss right now, don't worry. It's really a period of gestation, a gift that allows you to drop into your own deep waters and feel what wants to be real NOW. A friend of mine said she had a dream where she was inside a cocoon, very tight and alone. Suddenly it exploded and she was a swan swimming peacefully on a glassy lake, with many other swans. She said she realized that what was coming would be an experience of greater connectedness with like-minded others, that she would no longer have to do everything alone. 

Here are some things you can do to further this process of becoming transparent:

> Center yourself repeatedly inside your body, in the moment, and see what you already know about whatever's just been on your mind.

> Absolutely STOP self-doubt thoughts, yes, but's, cynical or critical thinking, and negative comments.

> Saturate yourself in thoughts of what you love, what excites you, what brings simple pleasure, what opens your heart. 

> Release other people's ideas that you mistakenly carry and hold as your own. Release opinions, beliefs about your identity, or what you think you have to do. 

> Visualize yourself uncluttered by shoulds, old ideas, and negative feelings. Let yourself experience spaciousness, openness, expansion, clear light all around you.

> Let go of any ways you hold on, hold back, hold forth, hold out, and hold up.

Remember: In any now moment you can be transparent. Just focus your whole self into the moment and breathe diamond light, radiate diamond light, and relax any urges to control yourself and the world. You don't have to know who you are. You're much bigger and more complex than you could ever imagine. The soul will make you into whatever is needed for the next moment of life. Go with it! Discover yourself as you become, then discover yourself anew.
