Join Penney at Kripalu Center, October 18-20, for an In-Depth Training



Leap of Perception!
Refine Your Attention Skills to Ease Your Transformation

As the vibration of the world and your body continues to accelerate, you enter a new kind of knowing — a leap in perception. Some call this "transformation," and it truly is a shift into being a new kind of human, and living in a new reality that functions according to new rules. Penney Peirce, author of Frequency and The Intuitive Way, calls this transformed reality "The Intuition Age." In the Intuition Age, you'll use more than your brain to perceive, and you'll develop new attention skills that will help you succeed in a world that's functioning entirely in the present moment, close to the speed of light.

In this workshop, Penney will teach many of the ideas in her new book, Leap of Perception. She'll help you feel what the transformed reality will be like, and will guide you through the stages in the shifting of your consciousness, tying it to the use of your brain, body, and personal energy field. You'll learn to ease the difficult stages of the transformation process, and use your attention consciously to find a deep connection with life and soul. You'll learn to:

• Manage your increasing ultrasensitivity and empathic ability

• Identify old perception and new perception, and be able to shift out of the old at will

• Understand what spherical-holographic perception is and practice it

• Work with "direct knowing" to decode "energy information," which includes telepathy and precognition

• Use collective consciousness techniques to improve your ability to materialize the life you want

• Expand your imagination and understanding of how it relates to your creative process

Penney Peirce is an articulate and accurate clairvoyant empath, visionary, author, and a popular lecturer. She is a trainer specializing in intuition development, inner energy dynamics, and expanded perception, working throughout the US, Japan, South Africa, and Europe since 1977. She coaches business executives, psychologists, scientists, and those on a spiritual path about the hidden dynamics of what makes for true success. She lives in Florida. Penney is the author of 6 books, including Leap of Perception, Frequency, and The Intuitive Way — which she calls her "Transformation Trilogy."

An Intuitive Thinks about Transforming the Entertainment Media: Part 3


The Nine Stages of the Transformation Process
We might also look at the transformation of entertainment media by understanding the stages of the personal transformation process‚ since the same stages occur in organizations and groups. There is a roadmap; I outlined nine steps in great depth in my book Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration. Here is an abbreviated summary.

1. Spirit Merges with Body, Emotions, and Mind: The physical and nonphysical realities are beginning to be able to see and feel each other as the vibration of the world rises, bringing us closer to the vibration of spirit. Now there is more bleed-through from higher dimensions. Note the increase in psychic, spiritual, sci-fi, extraterrestrial, and superhero themes in the media.

2. The Frequency of Life Increases in Every Way, Everywhere: Our bodies are vibrating faster, and we're experiencing discomfort, irritability, and physical symptoms like increased heat, rashes, heart-pounding, insomnia, hyperactivity, and electrical buzzing. Everything is speeding up and becoming more intense. We can try cocooning, or just become addicted to the adrenaline. How about a shoot em up movie with lots of loud crashes, bloody murders, and lightning fast edits? Media becomes escapism and a method of distraction.

3. The Personal and Collective Subconscious Mind Empties: There isn't really a place for low vibrational fear beliefs to hide anymore since the vibration of the whole physical plane has increased. That means what used to be able to be suppressed and denied is now released into the conscious mind and becomes the stuff of daily life. Collective subconscious fears surface as dramatic events in the news. This amount of freely circulating subliminal fear and ugliness can be very disturbing. Reality TV, anyone? If we can't suppress it, let's get into it!

4. We Retrench, Refortify, Resist, and Resuppress: The ego doesn't want to face fear, so it reacts with various avoidance and control mechanisms designed to resuppress the dread and anxiety. Here's where we get conservative politicians stonewalling any real progress for the people, and entertainment executives repeating mindless formulas for programming that worked once in the past. Just keep making money, maintain power and dominance, and avoid change. Keep everyone else addicted and in fear, so you can feel free to do whatever you want.

5. Old Structures Break Down and Dissolve: We can only resist so long before the water that built up behind the dam breaks through. What used to work doesn't work anymore. Logic, cause-and-effect thinking, will power, goal-setting, and having too much hierarchy and fixed structure becomes outdated. People feel disillusioned and hopeless, but at the same time, innovation breaks through! The old fades down while the new rises through every crack. With the entertainment industry this may look like: people not going to movie theatres anymore, the old formulas for making money with film failing to produce the same results, actors becoming disillusioned with what's available for them to do, and writers feeling sickened by the violence and negative ideas they have been spreading throughout the world.

6. We Enter the Void and Find Our Truest Self:  We tire of resisting and striving; we reach the "end of progress." Nothing works. We stop identifying with ego, let the ego "die." We let go and simply be with what is. We enter the silence and spaciousness, feel into life, experience communion with spirit and higher-frequency realities. We remember who we really are and return to a natural sense of joy and inspiration. An actor, writer, director, or producer goes through a soul-searching, life-changing experience and allows the "world to stop" and be reinvented.

7. We Re-emerge into the World Like the Phoenix: We begin a new cycle of creativity based on easy flow from spirit to matter. Our creations find a home, we inspire others and set good examples. Here is where the transformational stories actually get made, where new forms of communication begin to influence the forms of the media. Here is where a new motivation for a new kind of spiritually-based content takes hold. No longer do people want to numb themselves or distract themselves‚ they want full consciousness and for entertainment to provide a virtual experience of love and healing.

8. Relationship, Family, and Group Experience Is Revolutionized: Now we realize we don't have to do everything alone, we have tremendous support to fulfill our destiny, because it's a win-win-win proposition. Competition is a thing of the past, mutual support is in. We experience a convening, where people of like vibration simply appear in our field, and we appear in theirs. We gather with our soul groups to cocreate fun things that serve each other and the planet. Our talents fit together perfectly like puzzle pieces. New production companies spring up, formed by actors and directors who are friends and who may write together or dream together. New talent is encouraged, new forms are tended.

9. Enlightenment Is Grounded into Every Bit of Matter: As we identify as the soul and merge the physical and nonphysical realities, the physical plane itself becomes enlightened and "transparent." We may see nonphysical beings as plain as day, we may be capable of tremendous new human abilities that have always been thought to be supernatural. For the entertainment industry, we may see a merging of previously separate forms of art. We may see virtual immersion media experiences and totally new, telepathic forms of film. Meditation and inner journeying may be the new form of entertainment! Everything is possible.

I know from my experience teaching intuition to executives, that there is little success going into their offices, where they're dressed formally in suits sitting behind square desks in hard surfaced rooms lit by fluorescent lights. There they are right and I have something to prove. The energy flow is against the whole proposition. It's the same with trying to change the entertainment industry from the top down. The kind of transformation we want must seep in without seeming threatening; it must in fact seem like the next exciting thing. We must create a hub of private enthusiasm and activity outside the norm, "over there," so those within the establishment will become like curious children, and come peeking over the fence. We simply need to remain in our "home frequency‚"the experience of our soul in our body, or our preferred state. We are the thought leaders, the innovators, the healers of people and crippled inner blueprints.

The whole outer world and its forms are a signature of the inner world.
Jacob Boehme

An Intuitive Thinks about Transforming the Entertainment Media: Part 2



Leaving the Physical World, Where We Love Definition
As individuals, to allow, and invite, transformation, we must leave the physical world and enter the nonphysical world. We must recognize the nonphysical world, not as “the Void,” full of fear, or as an experience of the collective unconscious, but as a full, rich, vital, interconnected superconscious field teeming with every possible idea, ready for materialization, and freely given for the asking. We must spend quality time in the nonphysical realms—though time as we know it doesn’t exist there. Language doesn’t exist there. This is the world of direct experience, immersion in the unified field, and saturation with life. This is the realm of telepathy, direct knowing, and high-vibrational “impressions.” We must learn to feel as at home there as we feel here in our skin, in our car, in our living room.

In effect, we must consciously act like quantum wavicles. Now I’m an individual personality in the particle-based reality; now I’m an unlimited being of pure consciousness-and-energy—a wave, a frequency—in an infinite sea of consciousness-and-energy. I constantly rock back and forth, creating and dissolving, involving and evolving, ever renewing myself. I have two related, interconnected, mutually dependent identities and realities: soul and personality, unified field and physical locale. A colleague of mine, who’s developing computer software to help us learn to do this, calls this the “interface” and says we need to learn to make the “round trip.”

Leaving the Nonphysical World, Where We Love Love and Creative Evolutionary Flow
Before we can influence the transformation of entertainment and media in the physical world, we must know its counterpart intimately in the nonphysical world. What is entertainment like in nonphysical reality? What is communication like? We must be saturated with that experience so fully that new forms emerge spontaneously from us without mental struggle, will power, or even intention. The new forms must flow through us like water, inspired and invited by a joyful attitude and sustained, appreciative attention.

We must also understand an important principle of interdimensional work: Change the inner blueprint (pattern in the nonphysical world) and the outer result (form in the physical world) changes instantly. This is more and more true as we realize we are living entirely in the present moment and the physical and nonphysical worlds are already merged and mutually sourcing. So, to solve the seemingly serious problems in the physical world of the entertainment industry, we need to look at its nonphysical patterns and consciousness-and-energy underpinnings, which are based on fear beliefs.

The kind of greed that hog-ties creative genius, the mindless repetition of formulas for film and television that worked once in the past, the delivery of violence and intense adrenaline-producing stimuli that result in numbness and addiction—these are behaviors that come from people who are locked into the isolated world of the left brain, where motivation is about survival, control, and domination.

The kind of stories that make us sick mentally and emotionally, that are toxic to our souls, that exacerbate our tendency to destroy our planet and hurt each other—these are chosen by industry leaders who are uneducated about the transformation process underway on the planet, out of touch with their own heart and inner life, and avoiding a fear of the unknown. The limited, biased business structure generated by these leaders is a form of censorship as insidious as that generated by conservative religions and dictatorial governments.

The Tyranny of the Left Brain and Ego
An industry can be dysfunctional psychologically just as an individual can. In fact, the documentary, The Corporation, compares the behavior of psychopaths and corporations, and finds strong parallels, coming to the conclusion that corporations actually are psychopathic. Focus too much on the need for definition and security as an antidote to anxiety, and left-brain perception dominates. We become trapped by ego, which thinks it’s the boss of the world. But the ego-left brain only sources itself from the past; it doesn’t allow the right brain—what I consider the present-moment doorway to the nonphysical worlds—to access intuitive insight that’s accurate in the here-and-now. The path to genius is blocked. Staying aligned with the planet’s increasing frequency and evolution is impossible.

We need to help change the inner blueprints of the entertainment industry and its leaders. But first we must change our own inner blueprint so we won’t be sucked into contracted, oppositional, conflict-oriented ways of framing problems and solving them—that’s old, left-brain, linear perception. In stories, I learned at this meeting, the antagonist is an important driver of progress. The antagonist is the guardian of the gate, the symbol of the very thing we must heal or transform in ourselves.

In this case, the antagonist is the collective of entertainment executives who make decisions based on limited perception and righteousness. They sound so convincing! “We produce the kind of programming people want!” they say. They don’t say, “People want this kind of programming because we’ve fed them a steady diet of it. People want what we tell them to want.”

If we are to pass through the gate in the hero’s journey to succeed in shifting the kind of content people want and demand, we must shift from identifying ourselves as our left brain and ego, and stay out of fear-based, reactionary thinking. We must not think about what the negative outcomes might be if we don’t do something. We must not think about “urgency” as though we are paramedics rushing to the rescue.

Instead we can calmly identify ourselves as our soul and understand the universal principles of the way consciousness-and-energy actually functions. We can simply do what we feel like doing, what we are drawn toward doing, what feels good and right, for the pleasure of the creativity of it. We must not resist or fight the “titans,” but eclipse them. By unplugging our attention from what’s so bad, we can create a reality that is perfectly aligned with the coming Intuition Age, and evolves along with the times. We can plug attention into the creations that stream through us and gather our collective energy into a magnetic core that radiates invitingly.

An Intuitive Thinks about Transforming the Entertainment Media: Part 1




There is a part of every living thing that wants to become itself—
the tadpole into the frog, the chrysalis into the butterfly, 
the damaged human being into a whole one. That is spirituality.
—Ellen Bass

What are the problems with entertainment media today? If we look deeper, inside each problem, what useful insight might we find about how to change things for the better? And, where’s the urgency? What’s at stake if nothing changes? These are the questions a group of transformational educators and entertainment professionals asked at a recent summit meeting or “wisdom council.” The aim of this alliance was to begin a process that could help transform the quality of the content now being served up to us by the varied forms of the entertainment media. Everyone present recognized how powerful these seemingly ordinary but highly invasive sources of content really are—how they shape our consciousness and culture, and how they're influencing us negatively today.

The First Steps of a Journey Symbolize the Rest of the Journey
These are great questions—good, logical, left-brained questions—yet as I listened to the fleshing out of the responses, I felt slightly uncomfortable, like the cart was in front of the horse and we might trip over it. Sure, films and television are glorifying and perpetuating shallow, intolerant attitudes and violent, reactionary behavior, but to my mind these things are not really the problem, they are physical materializations of one stage in a much larger—and very positive, I might add—transformation process.

From my intuitive observations, this process is already underway in the nonphysical world. It is accelerating and progressing steadily under its own steam, while the physical world tries to adjust the way it’s materializing so the form we know in the external world accurately matches the rapidly changing inner energy blueprint in the nonphysical world. The transformation process is sweeping everyone along with it—some people embrace it and enter the flow joyfully, while others fear it and try to stop it. What we’re seeing in the entertainment business—to broad-stroke it—is the materialization of the inner blueprint of a group of powerful people who basically fear and resist the part of the transformation process that requires the reinvention of self.

I think my ever-so-mild sense of tension with the way our meeting began came from several things. First, we were focusing on a part of the process as if it were the whole thing. Second, we were framing things negatively, seeing obstacles that needed to be overcome, and even anticipating negative outcomes. By focusing on blocked dynamics, we ourselves could be inadvertently influenced by fear thinking, reducing our ability to access fresh inspiration and visionary ideas. Third, I wondered if we all had a common understanding of the transformation process and its stages that would serve to put the other questions in their proper context.

Author Tracy Kidder writes, “. . .usually what’s missing isn’t a story. What’s missing is a broader way of thinking about what makes a good story.” Perhaps we might have started by thinking about the best way to frame a “problem,” and at what depth to begin. Perhaps the first questions might have been: What is the transformation process, how does it work, and what are we transforming into? Then, how does the state of the entertainment industry parallel the state of our own transformation? And what stage of transformation does the entertainment industry seem to be experiencing now?

I’d like to summarize what I know about the transformation process; perhaps this will help clarify a few things about the way I’m thinking. Transformation is not just a change of form. It’s not about doing more of something, or doing it better, or differently. It’s not about the sort of change where we begin in the physical world and rearrange things into new patterns that are still in the physical world. Transformation is something else altogether—it’s an alchemical change in the basic nature of something, a shift from one consciousness-and-energy state to another, a startling change that occurs as if by magic.

Transformation is actually a profound shift in how we perceive. It is the process by which consciousness itself can move from knowing reality as a point, then a line, then a plane, then a cube. These are examples of shifts of dimension, of frequency, that entirely transform our identity and reality simultaneously. So that’s where we are now: in the cubic, three-dimensional world of linear time, space, volume, and form. In fact, most of us are stuck here, covered over and blinded by wet blankets of limiting beliefs and fears, hypnotized into thinking this is all there is. Yet because of the rapid acceleration of energy on the planet—and thus in our bodies, emotions, and minds—we are also in the early stages of a shift to the next kind of identity and reality. Many of us are in the throes of this birth process already, experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms that come with clearing the clutter so we can remember who we really are. What could be beyond what we know so well and assume to be truth?

We are moving from the current Information Age into an Intuition Age, from old, left-brain dominated linear perception to new right-brain influenced spherical-holographic perception. In the Intuition Age, everything we know from the Information-Age point of view will become a new, higher-frequency version of itself. Everything! So when we talk about transforming the entertainment media, or writing the transformational story arc in screenplays, we must acknowledge that, in addition to changes of plot, character, and theme, the very form of story and narration will shift from an “old” linear structure to a “new” nonlinear, spherical, spiraling, holographic structure.

Perhaps we will soon see story and plot “lines” as boring, and move toward something akin to fireworks going off, lighting up many points and experiences in our field of consciousness simultaneously! Perhaps the lighting up of points in the field will trigger different memories and connections for each recipient, and each person will make the story meaningful to themselves in their own way. Perhaps we’ll “get” an entire story in two minutes, via direct impression, and when comparing it to someone else’s impressions, will have a second, third, and fourth new story as well, from the same initial imprinting stimuli.

The Energy Tsunami of 2013


It is interesting to me that the intensity of 2013, being like a tsunami, seems to be carrying us each toward our evolution. For some of us, there have been many dramatic, life-changing experiences—which, if lived moment by moment, aren't bad at all. In fact, they can be seen as an adventure, a way to practice bringing one's home frequency into each situation. I've begun asking: What does the inflow want to do now? Where does the energy it's bringing want to go next? What am I trying to be aware of?

For me, I have quite suddenly left northern California, where I lived for 35 years, and have found myself in FLorida after a month-long drive across country. It's a bit like a near-death experience. Other people I know have gone through a similar kind of move, either downsizing or moving to a new place. Others are dealing with injuries or illness. And yet others have found that the tsunami has lifted them into the nonphysical world through the transition of death.

Several of my friends have died this year. I mentioned CIndy Black, my publisher. And after I wrote the last blog piece, someone from Japan wrote and reminded me that another dear friend had died earlier this year—Hiroshi Ohuchi. He was a beautiful, kind, smart spiritual teacher who translated many books, and I was close with his family. I looked on his website (http://www.mfi.or.jp/hiroshi/condo/index.html) and found the following bit of an interview he did with someone. I found it very moving, and in it, a feeling of the attitude I want to carry in my life.

Question: How do you want to be remembered when you do die?

I want to be remembered as Hiro-chan, innocent Hiro-chan. The books I have translated will carry my name and all of that, which I also cherish. But as a human being, I am innocent Hiro-chan who is friends with many people. And by my family, my children, in addition to that, I want it to be remembered that I loved them unconditionally no matter what they did, or no matter what they didn't do. I accept that and I respect that. I just love them. That's how I feel. My parents left me that legacy, and that legacy I'd like to continue.

Question: Do you know what you'd like on your tombstone?
Yeah. "Here lies Hiro-chan, who, to the best of his ability, fulfilled his mission, and enjoyed this life tremendously. And who was blessed by many, many human souls, and by God and angels."

Blessings to everyone, wherever you are on your own tsunami!

Thank you, Cynthia Black!



I just learned that my friend and publisher, Cynthia Black, has died, at age 61. She was President and Editor-in-Chief at Beyond Words Publishing, a branch of Simon & Schuster.

Cindy has been a fine mentor to me and so many other authors over her long career. She has always had clear intuition and a strong sense of what books fit the Beyond Words’ motto: Inspire to Integrity. I find I must speak of her in a present-tense way, since I still feel her kindness and steady midwifing consciousness. I would not be where I am with my writing, my ideas, and my ability to reach people, were it not for Cindy. She took a chance on me. And she read my manuscripts as they unfolded, giving me important reality checks.

Cindy and I traveled to Peru together in 2009, for an important women’s meeting in Lima, and went on to Cuzco and Machu Picchu for a brief vacation afterward. I remember us eating a plate of quinoa and some sort of simple meat in Cuzco for lunch one day, a real peasant meal, wonderfully satisfying, as we talked about male and female energy, the horrors of dating, and good writers we liked. An old, colorfully-dressed Native woman and her llama sat on the curb outside. She could have been an angel for I all know.

I can only imagine the sort of deep internal processing Cindy went through in the last year of her life. She has always been intent on evolving and on clearing herself of blocks to full memory of who she really is. I think of her now in a joyful state of clarity and appreciation, as her worries have fallen away, as she can now truly see how many people she has positively affected around the world.

I sense she may be resting a bit, taking it all in, and I feel strongly that her core service motivation will continue without much of a lull, now that she can perceive so broadly and understand some of the more magical principles of working with consciousness-and-energy. Helping to influence the innovators from heaven would be something she would no doubt want to do, something that would be fun for her. Like my three-year-old niece said to me once, “When you’re dead, you get to reach your hand down through the sky and sprinkle fairy dust on your family.” And Cindy’s family, her soul group, is quite extensive. Thank you SO much, Cindy. You have been one of my great benefactors and I won’t forget you. You have inspired me to always pay it forward in my own life as much as I can.

Penney Peirce on Paradigm Shifters 9/17



Veronica Entwistle and I did a wonderful interview, a weaving of many fine points. . .

Paradigm Shifter Penney Peirce says we are making A LEAP OF PERCEPTION. Don't you love leaps? Life's process feels more arduous than that at times, doesn't it? We'll talk with Penney about this, the third book of her trilogy that maps the shifting frequencies on our planet and beyond. Will we feel the shifts to group consciousness, becoming aware of dualistic concepts, in a holograph to release tensions? To unfold evolution through conscious focused attention? Isn't it is a thrilling thought that because of the accelerating frequencies, the change in our hearts, our society, and our personal existance can be both smooth and exponential.

Penney is a popular intuitive, speaker, teacher, and writer about frequencies, intuition, healing, and perceiving beyond.  For a number of lifetimes she has been an inspiring purveyor of wisdom and conscious evolution.

Tune in Tuesday Sept 17th 8 - 9 PM PDT, 11 PM EDT, 4 AM in the UK. The podcast will be up on www.veronicaentwistle.com Wednesday Sept 18th.

Penney's Cross-Country Trip: Leg 4


Here are my photos from NM through TX-OK-AR to TN:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151645722647572.1073741831.730037571&type=1&l=3ada3e585c

Leaving the west and especially the colorful, dramatic, artistic landscape of New Mexico, was difficult for me as I have come to see myself as a person of the West, over the past 35 years. Coming down from high altitude, and merging myself with the plains, and the Ozarks, and the green hills and trees of Tennessee, required an openness and neutrality that was rewarding in the end. I met so many really sweet, polite, mannered people, with a rhythm so unlike the rushed, pressured, perhaps overly intellectual vibe of the west coast. It was refreshing. I grew up in the midwest and loved it then. In later years I have flown over it coast to coast and haven't connected with its reality, its earthiness. Our country is very, very beautiful!

Penney's Cross-Country Trip: Leg 3


I stayed in New Mexico about 10 days, as it is like a spiritual home to me.

You can view my photos here:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151626723182572.1073741830.730037571&type=1&l=3a63209376

The first weekend was Indian Market with many Native American artists from all tribes showing their art. It's a big event with thousands of tourists flocking to town. I visited friends—intuitive Suzann Owings, graphic designer and artist Jaye Oliver and her daughter Palin, author (and clown!) Morgana Morgaine, author Anne Heath Widmark, astrologer and expert in Hawaiian mysticism Norma Tarango, David Langer and his wife Adonna, and longtime friend and colleague (we used to work with the Japanese together) Jon Driscoll. I toured the new Japanese restaurant being built at 10,000 Waves, which Jon designed and is supervising construction of. It's gorgeous and is slated to be finished in October.

We had some refreshing, brief rainstorms that kept things coolish. It was amazingly restorative for me, seeing friends, and art, and the gorgeous skies there.

The Flow, Driving in It



I've been reading (finally!) Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Dillard says, and I can relate after driving for days: "At my back the sun is setting—how can I not have noticed before that the sun is setting? My mind has been a blank slab of black asphalt for hours, but that doesn't stop the sun's wild wheel."

And she says," It has always been a happy thought to me that the creek runs on all night, new every minute, whether I wish it or know it or care, as a closed book on a shelf continues to whisper to itself its own inexhaustible tale. ...I can hardly believe that this grace never flags, that the pouring from ever-renewable sources is endless, impartial, and free." Then she has a turn of thought and says, "The damned thing was flowing because it was pushed."

I am in a Flow that is carrying me to a new sort of reality, and, yes, I'm in it now, and there is more to come. I have left familiar territory and am currently driving through the Ozarks, listening to the radio filled with country music, Christian sermons on weekdays, and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. In general, I like country music. The hills and lakes are beautiful, though the temperature is baking.

Penney's Cross-Country Trip: Leg 2


You can view my photos of the second leg of my move from Marin County, California to Ormond Beach, FL at:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151619897562572.1073741829.730037571&type=1&l=97d608ade9

From Los Angeles I drove east on Rt. 10 across Arizona in 111 degree heat, and stopped in Palm Springs for a Starbucks, right next to the huge statue of Marilyn Monroe. I continued to Phoenix, then north on Rt. 17, finally  stopping in Sedona for the night. I stayed with my friend Glenn Scarpelli, and had dinner with him, Jerry Gilden, and Andrea and Gary Smith, who own a gallery in Tlaquepaque. Glenn and Jerry are creating a new consciousness festival, to be held annually on Presidents Day weekend, in Sedona, called World Wisdom Days. See their fb page: https://www.facebook.com/SedonaWorldWisdom 

The next day I headed up Oak Creek Canyon to Flagstaff, caught Rt 40 east, had some welcome rain, cooled off a bit, drove through Winslow and took a few pictures, and stopped in Albuquerque for the night.

Penney's Cross-Country Trip: Leg 1



You can view my photos of the first leg of my move from Marin County, California to Ormond Beach, FL at:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151617203392572.1073741828.730037571&type=1&l=194bd25573

I began by staying with my longtime, dear friend, author Carol Adrienne, for a few days at her home in El Cerrito, CA. I really needed the recuperation time, as I was deeply exhausted from the pressure of packing a house almost entirely by myself. We went to see Woody Allen's new film, Blue Jasmine, which we both loved!

I stopped first for a few days to visit with Terri Jentz, in Ojai. She is the author of the powerful book, Strange Piece of Paradise. I met Ellen Hall, director of Meditation Mount, a learning center in Ojai. She and Terri and I hiked up to see Whale Rock and Dolphin Rock at dusk. Fantastic!

I then spent a bit over a week in Los Angeles teaching a workshop and doing private sessions for some of the grad students from the University of Santa Monica Spiritual Psychology program. In Los Angeles I stayed in Tarzana with Joyce Averna, and Judi Glova from Beverly Hills was instrumental in organizing everything for the program. Thank you, thank you! It was a blast. All the participants were so open-minded and accustomed to looking deep into themselves. I also met with John Raatz, who helped found GATE, the Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment. I will be working with them as plans come together.

No Ego, No False Humility


I will laugh when I mean it and not to avoid a feeling, reduce a negative comment, or make heartless fun of another.

I will speak of myself and my work in real, simple, positive terms, to myself and to others.

I will speak of others in positive terms, describing what I see about their true self.

I will remember that I am large and universal as well as an individual particle, as important as every other particle.




Statements of Truth


AT NIGHT:
I suspend attraction and deeply rest.

IN THE MORNING, THROUGHOUT THE DAY:
Today I look for for positive signs and experiences.

Today perfect opportunities occur in my field.

Today I am in the right place at the right time.

Today my body fills constantly with fresh, clear energy.

Today I effortlessly release the energy that wants to flow through me.

Today I have the enthusiasm of the child.

Today the world supports me, and I support it.

Today I can be all of myself.

Present Moment Practice

I did my own oracle today on my website's home page and this is what I got. it's a good reminder!

I recognize my soul-blocking thoughts.

Catch yourself when you block the natural expression of your soul today with life-negating ideas. Replace these limiting thoughts with soul-freeing behaviors instead.

It began not long ago—the moment narrowing down, my voice resounding hollowly, my attention directed by some inner teacher to the words I am uttering. I hear myself eerily now whenever I make a false statement. This sensitivity has come as the result of a resolution I made to identify myself as my soul, present here and now in its full wisdom. I vowed to give my soul a chance to take over my body, emotions, mind, creativity, and self-expression, to "do with me what it would." As I practice this, I have moments of giddy excitement as I glimpse what the unimpeded soul is capable of knowing and doing in the world, when given the chance. These clear insights then inexplicably collapse into my habitual way of perceiving, where I find myself imbedded in old limitation and victim thoughts, or in patterns of hostility, irritation, or impatience. I realize with a deep, private embarrassment that every time I choose to get juice out of feeling maligned or unappreciated, I am stalling being my true self. Who is it hurting? Me. "This is not the way I want to spend my short time on earth!" I yell to no one in particular as I drive along in my car.

I have been investing my life force and attention in ideas that block the flow of my soul, just as I might invest my savings in a loser mutual fund. How many times have I chosen to close my heart just because someone else's heart was hard or cool? Why do I cause myself pain like that? Just to match them and have some kind of connection? Because we can't expect any more here on earth? I'm drawing the line! I'm investing in soul-serving, soul-freeing thoughts from now on.


I make a list of the ideas I've held unconsciously that pertain to: 1) doubt, worry, lack of confidence; 2) self-sacrifice, victimization, unfairness, helplessness, rescue, overwhelm; 3) scarcity, fear of loss; 4) denial, avoidance, procrastination, postponement, waiting; 5) rebellion, stubbornness, complaining; 6) feigning ignorance; 7) envy, resentment, indignation, betrayal, stealing; 8) violence, retribution, punishment, judgment, vengeance, aggression, domination. These are mistakes of perception. I flag them. I catch myself now every time I start in on these themes or hear those societally correct platitudes we're all hypnotized into repeating: "Well, everybody does it." "I'm not too bad." "Oh, I don't know." "I'm no expert." "It could be worse." "I can't." "Maybe. . ." Patiently, I ask my soul to re-educate me about who I really am."

A Moment in the Sun


I was so sleepy today, couldn't get going on the computer, didn't really want to be left-brained, so I went outside my front door where there was a spot of morning sun and wrote this, decided on no punctuation:


I’m sitting in the sun just outside my front door I’m closing my eyes feeling what “soaking it up” is I’m holding a deep green leathery hydrangea leaf on the right and a purple fuzzy wandering jew flower on the left a human bridge of love between plant neighbors the wind is rushing through the high treetops and the distant traffic roar sounds the same almost and gusts come and bring the scent of rain and pollen a bumblebee comes and bumps heavily from flower to flower I feel his low buzz in my stomach now the sun filters through a passing foglike cloud muted and the warmth wanes yet I still feel the core experience of “sun” in the coolness green bottlefly lands on my page walks on my fingers tickles me flies off to whiz about my head now gone and all throughout the steady sun and the clouds and winds of change

Penney Peirce's Wisdom Letter #3: Freedom and Mobility



The Year Begins with the Feeling of a Full Stomach
Looking back over the year so far, I have the thought that the supposedly magical 12/12/12 time of last year was really the last gasp of linear thinking. Past and future have been absorbed into the Now. We are registering this, letting its truth sink in and be demonstrated. That’s why the year has such a sense of fullness. Everything is in the present moment and we cannot project away from it, cannot escape it. Life feels like a woman in the last stages of pregnancy. 

Energy builds, wants release, yet earlier this year I experienced flatness, like life was happening on a screen. In fact I was watching more television than ever before—on my new big flat screen HDTV where the people are the same size as I am—and well into the night, sometimes not sleeping at all, then sleepwalking through the next day. I was treading water, being housebound and isolated, restricting the scope of my reality.

“Something is brewing,” I said to friends; “I can’t see my own path ahead.” Me, who is supposed to be clairvoyant, couldn’t see for myself. Moments flashed periodically when I saw my personality (little me) saying these things, feeling helpless and stuck, pretending to be blind, and sometimes just talking to encourage my own patience and presence, or to fill the time of being-with-waiting. Simultaneously I felt my soul (Big Me) moving conditions into synchrony and place, readying me for change. 

I was cleaning out closets, drawers, shelves, and file folders, making “space.” The opposite of nest-building. The birds in my yard were just building their nests.

Spring Equinox, Mar 20: Pressures Release
I wrote in my equinox newsletter, “The other day, walking took on a strange tactile oddness; it was as though I were pushing forward into a field of energy that had a different frequency and the ‘skin of it’ was springy. It was repelling me, surrounding me in a kind of slow dullness, making me feel that I didn’t want to do anything. 

“When I pulled my wits together and focused into the moment to see what was really happening underneath—to ‘see through’ the external symptoms—I realized that I needed to adjust my own vibration to a level that matched the new frequency around me. When I did, my experience of moving around felt smooth and slippery, like shooting down a greased sliding board.

“It occurs to me that the equinoxes—when day and night, and dark and light, and perhaps even physical and nonphysical realities are equal—may be very effective times to focus on ‘seeing through.’ At these times it may be easiest to access the inner realms because the frequency is closest to that of the outer realms.”

What I didn’t realize was that the thin veil between the worlds on the equinox was also a time of energy balancing. On this day, my landlord informed me they had decided to sell the house I’ve been in for the past 25 years. All six of my books have been written here. It was the news that brought reality to what I’d been sensing. Energy had been dammed up in me—more predominant, it seemed, in the nonphysical world than the physical—because I knew something in my right brain and body that had not yet become conscious and real; I knew semi-consciously. Energy wanted to move, but couldn’t until the words were spoken.

As I received the news, I watched my body respond in an amazingly neutral way. I was cordial instead of shocked or angry, and oddly relieved. The energy ballooning in the nonphysical world from sensing a new reality to come, was now free to flow. But where? I hung up the phone and part of my consciousness-and-energy, all on its own, lifted up and out, like a flock of birds rousted by a strong, mysterious wind. I was circling in widening arcs. My body still stood by the phone.

Everywhere I look now, I find people with mobility issues. And really, the mobility issues are about freedom—freedom to become more of ourself, more of our soul. I am going to put my things in storage, load up the car, and leave California. I’m driving east. The loose plan is to relocate to Florida to be near my mother for a little while, until a new view and plan reveals itself.

Interestingly, many of my friends are also moving, not to mention clients and radio hosts I’ve chatted with before our interview. Some friends and clients are experiencing a restriction of mobility and freedom, noticing and clearing key issues that have prevented their expanded self-expression. Some have had leg surgeries, some are out of work due to a debilitating physical condition, and some are about to risk leaving addictive, abusive relationships.

It’s a Powerful Time for Courageous Acts
I sat down, quieted myself and asked my inner voice/inner perceiver what I was really doing, under the surface, by engineering this sudden transition. You may relate to what came to me:
Look and feel deeply into your physical self and you can feel your nonphysical self refocusing your physical expression in a very intense way. Your inner blueprint has been updated in the spiritual realms—the higher frequencies of the nonphysical, and it is sliding down the spectrum into form now. It will not be stopped. If you try to “manage” it, it will cause accidents, snags, breakdowns, and suspensions. You may remain in action and the flow by simultaneously allowing the repatterning to occur as it will, as action unfolds, in whatever form it takes, and not imposing your own needs for security or familiar structure. If suspensions of motion occur, it is because you need to allow the substitution of the new inner pattern without controlling it or blocking it. So give it a minute! 
You are to let go of ideas of what you think you need to feel healthy, harmonious, balanced, happy, and fulfilled. New versions of all these things are being put into place and you will experience demonstrations of how the new patterns work, one by one. For instance, you may think you need large blocks of uninterrupted time to accomplish your goals without feeling stressed. Now you may accomplish many things in a smooth flow from thing to thing, without breaking time down into chunks. Now you may not need the amount of insulation from the world that you used to require for your “sanity.” Be sure to make note of the new patterns when they occur, and allow them to become real for you. You are becoming less fragile. You are becoming robust and extremely fluid at the same time. 
You may at times feel you don’t fit with the people around you who are clinging to old perception, but just keep love in your heart and field, and include them and say what comes to you to say, do what you feel like doing. Don’t make yourself into an outsider when truly there is no such thing. We are all insiders. To gain identity from something false is a waste of vital energy and time. 
Deep within in the magical zone where the nonphysical and physical worlds exchange places, you are rebuilding yourself; and we are helping restructure you to be in greater harmony and communion with more of the unified field. This way the principles of the high-frequency reality can function in your earthly reality, more and more. Don’t pretend nothing is happening. Don’t pretend you’re overwhelmed. Don’t pretend you don’t know. Don’t pretend—but DO imagine positive new realities!  
Remain in a state of immersion in the flow; don’t leave it to make judgments about it or to try to figure it out, as this will reduce its efficiency, speed, and smoothness. Practice the experience of “no gap.” Don’t give surprises or shocks more credence or power than you do any other occurrence. Everything is equal in importance. Your left brain may think your experience and rhythm is “chopped up” but it’s not; you are finding the path of least resistance and greatest effectiveness at all times.
Your process may be unfolding and revealing many of these same things but in a way that is unique to you. Where in your life can you become more mobile and free? Does mobility equal freedom? What is real freedom, anyway? What will you do with more freedom? More mobility? You may need to clear some final limiting ideas that, like corks, are bottling up your ecstatic creative juices. You might entertain thoughts, in the imaginal realm, of what a greatly expanded reality might look like for you, where you can do what you’ve always loved. . .

Advice from My Father—to Himself

I found this small note in a folder among my father's old things. He died in 2000 and I had not gone through everything until now. He was a businessman and didn't speak openly about any introverted thoughts, so this surprised me in a positive way. . .

Big 6 Now Allow E-Lending of Books "Anywhere and On Any Device"


NYPL President: Big Six Now Allow E-Lending of Books "Anywhere and On Any Device"
Authors Guild Blog, May 1, 2013

Downloading ebooks from your local public library is poised to become much more widespread.

Anthony Marx, New York Public Library President, announced in an op-ed in today’s NY Times (subscription required) that Hachette Book Group has now joined the other Big Six publishers in agreeing to allow e-lending of its titles. Citing surveys that show that most Americans don’t know that libraries offer ebooks, Marx sees a need “to educate patrons that they can download library e-books anywhere and on any device.” Library e-lending, when permitted by publishers, generally allows one-at-a-time, two week uses of ebooks. Library users may download the ebooks from their homes after using their library cards to log in to the library’s website.

Marx discusses the variations in e-lending terms among the Big Six publishers: Penguin and Simon & Schuster offer their entire lists to public libraries through licenses that expire after a year; HarperCollins also offers their entire list with licenses that expire after a title is downloaded 26 times; Random House offers its entire list for unlimited uses, charging a premium for the license; and Macmillan makes only a limited portion of its list available.

The numbers show substantial room for growth in ebook downloads from the NYPL (and, no doubt, other public libraries):

The New York Public Library had 100,000 copies of 37,000 digital titles in circulation last year, compared with 6.5 million copies in circulation of 1 million print titles. Just as libraries decide which physical books to purchase and how many of each, we now will be deciding the same for e-books.

As those with library cards learn that they ”can download library e-books anywhere and on any device,” we may soon see a rapid shift in ebook buying habits.

A Poem from 2000


light falls through
when ya don’t hold;
that I need to feel I
(the separate-from self)
is what’s tight but
no worry, no watching for the I
trust all in awareness ball cuz light falls thru everywhere
stay in feeling of fast light falling
that’s what I am
life becoming and unbecoming
willynilly

don’t have to use up all the available space
on a page   to be efficient
only 2
words on
a line
isn’t WASTEFUL!
space is happy to have a chance
to be with form
they change off with each other
expand contract play
with each other
can create any way I want!
