Release the Old Paradigm
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
We have been living in a patriarchal society for many centuries. No wonder the emerging feminine needs to come on with the strength of a warrior. It has been a world of capitalization, patriarchy and colonization. It is a language the masculine understands.
It is time to move out of that paradigm. It will be hard for the masculine to accept and challenging for the feminine to define and establish her role. It is about all of us, male and female, releasing the old and creating an inclusive and empowering new world.
If you are anything other than a prosperous white male, you will feel left out. When I look back at my early formal religious life, I remember that God is perceived as male. That lets me out. When I got divorced, I had no credit rating because all the money was in my husband’s name. I had no employment record even though I ran a big house and raised four children.
It was very freeing when I went off to New York City and followed my own passion and spiritual path. I found my own voice and expressed it with enthusiasm.
Whatever age we are in, whatever gender we are, this is a time for introspection, releasing, and major change in our belief system, and our expectations of each other, both male and female.
As we move into this new paradigm, we must open our hearts and change how we perceive our personal role in the unfolding of this new world pattern.
Our existence is beyond our human expression. Ask yourself, “What is my existence beyond what I see?” Then listen to the feelings and emotions and unspoken concepts that show up.
We are one energy and when we understand and experience that, there is great power and deep inner peace. We are all one energy – no division, no male, no female, only one. No animal, no land, no ocean, no sky. No separateness. Only one all-encompassing energy.
How do I manifest this shift? By releasing my feelings of separateness, and embracing an awareness of our shared energy, our collective consciousness. Experience yourself as the all-encompassing energy of the universe.
Everything we do is important. Every thought we think, every act we take, has deep and far-reaching impact because we are all one energy. We must be aware. And we must choose carefully. We have a responsibility as part of this unfolding cycle of oneness to choose for the highest good for all.
What is possible beyond what we can see right now? What potential is waiting to be recognized and released? In the midst of this chaos, understand that we are one energy and each of us has an impact on the whole. Monitor your beliefs. Aim high. Choose wisely. Keep your thoughts and actions focused on the greater good for all and travel the higher road with an open heart.
So much is possible that we cannot see. We must trust. We must be observant and aware. And we must respond from the strongest sense of unity and oneness that we can manage.
Release and heal old paradigms of capitalization, patriarchy and colonization. Confront the wounding that has made us see ourselves as separate from Spirit. Let us work together to create a new world of inclusion, equality and love.

Deepen Your Inner Awareness
Find And Honor Your Own Rhythm
It’s hard to find your own rhythm when you are in a relationship or in a job that has specific demands or while raising children who need you. I live alone, I do not work for anyone else, and what I choose to do is totally up to me. I can sleep when I want to, play when I want to, and work when I want to. I just have to tune in to my own rhythm and honor it. I am responsible for my own choices and the outcome they produce.
Do you give yourself space to hear your own nudges? Do you give yourself time to explore what shows up? Do you pay attention to where you are on your own priority list? Your self-care? The exploration of your gifts? Your needs? We are the only ones to truly provide for ourselves and we must continue to be aware of our own intuitive nudges and take time to explore them.
Explore and experiment until you find your own rhythm, then honor it in how you live your life.
Stay In The Present Moment
I’m still spending too much time in the “could be – what if” facet of my life. Now that I have figured out the mechanics of this eventual move, I need to stop thinking about it because I’m only making stuff up about aspects I don’t know yet.
How much time do you waste thinking about the what-if’s? What is not yet here? What may never happen? We have this beautiful, gorgeous, sacred moment in which to be fully present.
Whether I sit here and feel my heartbeat or close my eyes and experience the energy around me, those are much better uses of my time than making stuff up about the future that isn’t here yet. How present are you during your day?
Become aware of those times your mind wanders off and make certain you pull it back into experiencing the sacredness and gift of each moment. Stay present in your life.
Take Responsibility for Healing Yourself
The Power of Gratitude
I sometimes forget to be grateful for the many blessings I have in my life currently and the many blessings I have received along my path. I want to change that. I’m going to add more moments of gratitude into my spiritual practice, and at the end of my day, and take time to look back over the gifts I received, the doors that opened for me, the new insights that deepened my awareness. I actually have a little song I made up that I sing before sleep: “Day is over, night has come, please watch over me. Renew, restore, replace, refresh, make me a better me.”
Even when something is not working out exactly the way you want it to, look closely at what you can be grateful for. I need to be in gratitude for a safe, caring place to go to in assisted-living even though the space is small and I’m having a hard time adjusting to the idea. And it’s not even time yet.
Stay in the moment. Look for the small gifts of the day. Thank the universe for them. Gratitude is a very powerful way to deepen your awareness of how you are being supported by the universe.
All of our choices have a great impact on our body – our physical body, our emotional body and our spiritual body. Who we spend time with, how we spend time, affects what we experience, what we create for ourselves. Every choice we make affects and impacts some part of our human existence. Self-healing begins with monitoring where you are focusing your attention. And what you believe is possible.
Changing our beliefs around what is possible can be sometimes challenging. According to Western medicine, the dry macular degeneration I have is not curable. I’m not sure what to do with that.
Maybe I can stand up straight again and maybe I can’t. I’ll never know until I try, until I work at it. It’s like training for a competition. I should be walking the halls more to strengthen my body but it’s a bit challenging, I don’t really like to do it, and I’m not doing it as frequently as I should. But I could practice my Qigong longer because I do like to do that.
What you decide to do will depend on what you want to accomplish. For instance, I want to keep writing so I’m going to keep exploring how to make that happen. I will get someone to help me with posting this newsletter if I can’t see to do it. I already dictate and work in a very large font. Get creative with the ideas you develop for the problems you perceive. And don’t give up hope.
We’re back to that cornerstone belief that you get what you believe you deserve and what you believe is possible. Check out your belief system and see what you need to change.
Qigong to Heal All Your Joints
I was actually looking for a video of the Qigong shaking exercise to share with you when I found a lovely video on usingQigong to Heal Your Joints by Steven Washington. It is easy to do and feels really good. Check it out online and add it to your spiritual practice.
Explore New Potential and Possibilities
Create Your Own Power Circle
Did you ever have an accountability partner? You set some goals and then check in with each other on a regular basis to report how you’re doing. You can create a supportive circle around any objective, any purpose, any task. Your circle can be large or small but the objective is to gather around a topic that everyone wants to explore.
These can take the form of individual conversations or group conversations. They can be structured or organic. You can take turns leading when you get together. You can each offer different lessons and insights. The group helps you expand your understanding of a topic and how to apply it in your life. Do you want or need to form a group around a specific topic? Just do it. It begins with one other person.
Your Language Shapes Your Life
“I can’t” is one of the biggest saboteurs of a positive life experience. As things get more challenging physically for me, I have to really watch the affirmations I give myself for they are determining my experience and the outcome.
How are you allowing your body to shut down simply by the affirmation “I can’t” or “It’s hard”? I’m not sure I can go as far as to say “It’s easy” but I can say, “I can do this”. Even better is “I can do this easily and effortlessly.” I can give myself those affirmations.
Take a close look at your belief system, particularly around your aging process and begin focusing on what you do achieve. Focus on what you can do and rejoice. Thank your body each day and continue to ask a little more of your physical self. Your language shapes your life. What are you telling yourself?
Change Your Learning Style
I’m a visual learner and I’m losing my eyesight. I have to make some adjustments to what I think I can do. I’m a note-taker. Currently I’m writing things down so I will remember what I think I need to remember. But my writing is so bad I can’t read what I have written!
Audio is a whole new way of learning for me to explore and master. I have to trust I will remember what I need to remember. I still want to write down ideas that I will turn and write about in this newsletter but surely I can make my notes readable when I do choose to write them.
This is nearly 90 years of visual learning that I have to shift. All I know to do is to pick simple things to listen to so I don’t have the urge to take notes. I have to be willing to let go of everything I listen to in case I can’t remember it. This is an experiment. A work in progress. How do you change learning styles? And why do you need to?

How Thoughtfully Do You Use Time?
I do not use time well. There are huge chunks of time that are spent in mindless activities that do nothing to enhance my life experience. I know we cannot be intensely engaged at all times. My downtime choices are really useless and that’s a waste of time.
I’m not sure what to do about it. I love to learn but I can’t do that the entire day. That’s too intense. Too demanding. I love writing, but again in moderation.
There is a huge chunk of time that I am not using well. I use time trying to learn and share or deepen my spiritual experience. And the rest I do not use very well. I seem to move from deep metal stimulation to total numbness in my mind.
How do you use your time? If you have a job, what do you do with the precious moments that are left? If you are home, do you have some projects you enjoy? Take time to find activities that will make you feel useful and keep you mentally and emotionally and socially engaged. What do you do to bring balance to how you spend time?
===GUIDANCE FROM OUR COSMIC COUNSELORS ===
Listen Beyond the Voice Within
I seek the Cosmic Counselors because I am distressed over the violent opposing ideology that is emerging in the world. I go to my Sacred Garden and there across the reflecting pool are my three Classic Counselors. They sit in a circle. In the center of the circle, floating in the air, is our planet. They hold their hands facing it as it rotates. They are healing it.
We are each an inhabitant of this planet. There is one planet and we are responsible for its well-being. If we turn and focus on protecting our planet, we will unite our efforts. If we focus on our own small lives we will self-destruct.
“Choose the overarching good for all” comes the message over the reflecting pond – the over-arching good for all. We are on the same team, working to heal ourselves and our planet.
Not everyone can shift their gaze away from their own personal issues to focus on the unifying concept of one planet that we must all take care of. There is a growing number of thoughtful humans focusing on the greater good. The majority of the world exists in several levels of survival. Most are focused on their own individual existence.
“What are we to do?” I ask, because the Cosmic Counselors are still focused on the revolving planet between them. “Do the work” comes to mind.
I understand. The work is to hold High Watch for the planet. It is to energetically support and encourage those who are walking the higher path and working for the highest good for all. My work is energetic. But if I were younger, I might have engaged more on the physical plane.
Are you working for the highest good for our entire planet? We have to think big because it’s a really big planet and it’s in really big trouble. What role has just been identified for you with the Cosmic Counselors? Will you fill it?
The light begins to glow from the heart of the revolving planet between the three Cosmic Counselors, who are all women by the way, and I understand. I must hold onto the planet in my heart. I am to hold the people on the planet in my heart. Hold all the inhabitants on land and sea and air in my heart.
The revolving planet between the three Cosmic Counselors begins to light up from within. The emerging light transforms it as a low humming sound emerges.
The healing begins in our hearts. It begins in the experience of the human being living on this planet at this particular time for a particular purpose.
What is the music of your purpose? What song are you to sing? How will you know?
I sit on the bench beside my reflecting pool and my carillon, my indigo bell-tower, chimes and send this message to all those who are listening.
What is your role in preserving our planet and its inhabitants? Get to work.

What You Focus On You Get
Where are you looking and what is it drawing to you? This is a huge metaphysical principle we need to understand and utilize. We get what we focus on. We get what we expect. Changing our life is as simple as changing our expectations.
Expect the best. Expect the perfect outcome. Expect it to be easy. Expect it to be perfect. And it will be.
Notice what you expect and see what you believe you need to shift in order to change what you get.
===BROADEN YOUR HORIZON – EXPAND YOUR VIEW===
Raise Your Sights and Your Expectations
The Power of the Collective Conscious
I get overwhelmed sometimes by the sheer number of people on the planet and the variety of approaches and beliefs and insights they bring to the human experience. I feel less than powerful when faced with the huge amount of imbalance in the belief systems in the world today. But we each have tremendous impact, particularly when we choose to consciously focus our attention for the highest good for all.
Thoughts create our reality. So as we move through our life, as we move through our day, we must monitor our thoughts and our expectations, our impact, and what we think is possible. We must make sure we expect the highest good for all. We must believe in our own individual power to affect the collective consciousness. In so doing, we join with others who hold the same high vision. Together we have great power.
Keep the faith. Keep a clear vision and trust the power of keeping ourselves attuned to and immersed in the highest consciousness.
Collectively we can change the world.

What If You Lost Everything?
The news is filled with the destruction of hurricanes and stories of people who have lost absolutely everything. Nothing is left. What would you do? How would you feel?
My very small example is the downsizing that I am moving through as I let things go. Sometimes I have to hold on to something just a little bit longer even though I know I cannot take that particular thing with me. But I’m choosing. And I have time to get used to my options. A hurricane just takes whatever it takes.
How attached are you to personal possessions? How resilient are you in the face of losing the security of a home or the destruction of your business? We have to know and believe that we can handle whatever we are given. Then we get to become very, very creative in order to walk on the new path that opens up. Just know that you will be capable of handling any challenge that you are given.

Reflections of a Deeper Song Podcast on
Changing a Habit
I have never been particularly good with money. But I’m going to have to change my ways because this assisted living will take a majority of my Medicare money and give me a small amount. My money will cover my place to live and my food but I will not be able to buy very much. Which is a good thing actually.
I have begun to monitor my impulses and encourage myself not to buy something that someone who is downsizing a lot really doesn’t need. Buying anything more is a very unwise choice.
Why do we buy things? If you were in the habit of spending a lot of money, you might want to look at the “why” behind that one more closely.
Do you have a need to change your spending habits and if so what steps will you take?

I will control my impulses by examining what lies behind then. I will find a substitute for what I need among the things I already have.
