Weaving Our New Home
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
We are going to create our new world from within ourselves – with our beliefs and our expectations. We’re going to create each new strand with our choices. That means we must create internal change before weaving our new home. We are weaving a new way to exist and this must all come from the changes we make within ourselves, from the inner work we do, from the vision we create, from the work we do to raise the vibration and consciousness of wholeness. Our work is for the whole and especially for the Circle of Light Beings who are charged with changing the vibrational harmony on our planet.
We much choose to create new possibilities, new potential. We are to acknowledge where we have been, be flexible about where we are headed, and creative about how we can get there. That takes a lot of fortitude, diligence, and courage. We can do that.
Begin by strengthening your spiritual practice – your meditation time, your contemplation time, and your visioning time. Deepen your relationship with your Inner Self and learn its language.
Listening is important. It is our imagination that makes things happen. Imagination creates reality. And with the emerging of the Divine Feminine, we are being offered a new way to imagine our existence, our interaction, our world into existence. Our potential is already different. The possibilities are rapidly changing and unfolding. The expectations are evolving. All because the Divine Feminine is stepping forward to say, “Let’s do it a different way.” And we have to figure out what this “way” is.
How do we do that? We question everything. We question our beliefs. We question our expectations. And we stay alert and receptive to all the new ways of being that are possible and unfolding in our experience today. Strand by strand, moment by moment, we are weaving our new reality. We must pay attention. Choose well. Choose wisely. We are creating our new and beautiful “next.”
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I am deeply conscious of my choices and my expectation and stay focused on the Unfolding Potential.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Put aside all your expectation for yourself in the coming year.
- Choose one thing that is the most important to manifest. The one thing that will affect all else you do. It can be a belief, an expectation, or a specific action.
- Begin to visualize and manifest that in the form that will move you forward into the new word of the Divine Feminine.
Vision is the World Beyond Sight
Vision expands and unites our ideas in scope and power. Vision has the ability to become anything. It is a door-opener to possibilities never before imagined. Use your vision to see your new world. Use what shows up as clues to what is unfolding. Always look beyond the obvious. Use what you discover as hints, not the core message. Listen with your inner knowing and let your vision lead you into your unique unfolding.
Keep Space Open For The New
If we fill our lives too full, we will not have time to explore the unexpected gifts and opportunities the Universe provides. Leave space in your life for new life experiences and subsequent choices.
Offer Gratitude to 2021
I was so busy looking at what might be coming in 2022 I almost forgot to thank 2021 for its gifts. I’m not sure that a body in moving through rather dramatic healing is a gift but that’s a lot of what I got. But I also got deepening friendships, continued encouragement, and expanded insights.
I learned to move effectively and use biofields to heal my body. There continue to be major lessons there. I have deepened relationships which are very important to me. I have shifted to a higher level on my path two or three times in this past year. I have learned the signs of feeling a cycle coming to an end, and how to wait patiently for the beginning of the new cycles to let themselves be known. I am more patient with the unfolding process of my life.
I can build on that. I can build on increasing my awareness of the ongoing cycles. I can increase my patience at letting them unfold and make themselves known.
Another huge gift from 2021 is the recognition that the Divine Feminine is unfolding and we are to help her establish herself even though we have no idea what form she’s going to take, what lessons she’s going to bring, and what new ways of being she’s going to suggest. What are the lessons you learned in 2021 and how are you bringing them forward into 2022?
Let your inner spiritual fire light your way. Keep it showing you new paths to explore, new dimensions to immerse yourself in, new ways of being in the world. Cultivate your Spiritual Fire with meditation and intentions and whatever form your spiritual practice takes. Build that fire and hold your light high so it can show you the way. We are Light Beings holding High Watch for the world. Raise your light so all can see. Light the path for those who follow.
I Am Self-Healing
This has not been a fun process. I picked up a cane in June and started using a walker in September. Technically I might say that my tilted pelvis righted itself and my body has been realigning itself ever since. What I do know is that each day now I am standing up straighter and feeling the alignment continue in my body. Change can hurt.
So what am I doing to make this self-correction take place? I am working with bitfield energy.
One of the forms is acupressure. Three times a day I massage my body – particularly the places that hurt to encourage the flow of energy through them and to them. The biofield energy work is taking several forms, reiki, Qigong, breathing visualization, vibration, intention. I have identified physical stretches that will strengthen my changing body structure. The point is – I’m helping it happen! I’m doing the work. My body is responding and giving me results.
I have several outer things that may be contributing – PiMag Waterfall® the KenkoTherm Cocoon , the Kenko Naturest® Custom Pillow and Kenko PowerSleep Mask One main meal is Garden of Life Raw Organic meal Replacement Powder in almond milk. I am supporting my body from many directions and it seems to be responding.
Talk to your body. See what it needs. Then find ways to give it the support to rebalance and realign and grow stronger.
Hurrah for self-healing….
How Do You See Yourself?
I can see myself as a crickety old woman with a walker or I can see myself as a fascinating woman with a vibrant, inquisitive mind. I can see myself as living alone in a senior center in Kansas or I can see myself with deepening friendships all over the world with whom I communicate regularly via Zoom as we support each other on our respective paths.
Are you aware of how far-reaching you are? Are you aware how far your unique ripple extends and what shores it touches?
Look beyond the obvious circle of lives you touch and know that what you say and think and do and believe is rippling out to touch lives all over the world. Be thoughtful. Be aware. See yourself as the light being you are.
Plant a Garden of “Surprise Me”!
I’ve been drawing lots of scenarios in an Experimental Garden and I was going over the ideas for the zillionth time when I decide to simply plant the whole garden with “Surprise Me”!!!! That sure eliminated a lot of thinking and planning and evaluating. If I grow a whole garden of
“Surprise Me” I don’t have to plan ahead, I just get to see what comes up and work with it. What an interesting way to live. Take each day as it comes and respond from your Inner Self, your Cosmic Awareness and trust your Inner Voice to guide you to your necessary “next.” That sure takes the burden off of planning ahead. Just respond in the moment and trust your choice to bring you the necessary “next.”
For instance, I seem to have organically stopped producing podcasts for the moment. I have several recorded that simply need editing, but I seem to have turned to share my explorations and discoveries in this newsletter. It is better to stay fluid in your plans when there is so much change going on that may require a different approach, different thinking, and even new ways of communicating. So we must stay in the moment and let our Surprise Garden – well surprise us!
Change Your Perception
Look at things in a whole new light, from a whole new perspective. It’s like shifting to experience something that looks like a confrontation to experience it as an opportunity. We can make that shift in a second. The next time you feel you are in a negative situation, pause to reframe it. What is the opportunity to grow here? What is the lesson I might learn? How will this change my options? Pause when you hit a snag, see how you can change your perception, and see where that leads you.
We have an unfolding future here. The Divine Feminine is opening her arms to receive us and we are to step in and accept her blessings and support. What does she need from us? What does she need from you? From me? We are entering a period of broad exploration and unfolding change. That means we are to stay flexible and alert and willing to change. Put on your explorer’s cap as the Divine Feminine makes herself known. Explore, sample, choose, experiment, move forward. We are to broaden our willingness to explore and make good use of what we discover.
I have one more physical therapy appointment and then I’m on my own. I have to be responsible for establishing a pattern of movement that continues to strengthen and straighten my body. My physical therapist has given me lots of ideas. I can go online and find even more ideas. But I have to do the work. I have to choose a movement. I have to put it in my life on a regular and steady basis. I have to take action. And I have to monitor how it works and adjust it and strengthen my choices until I get the results that I want. It’s all on me.
What objective do you have? And how will you make it happen?
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
Be With What Is
Be with what is. That doesn’t mean you won’t work to change it, it simply means you observe what you have created, what you have drawn to you, and consider your options. You may understand what got you where you are and decide to change it. You may decide you will work with what you have. You may decide to release your role in it. What shows up in your life is the result of choices you’ve made, thoughts you had, and your expectations of what is possible. Self-correcting things begins within.
What Makes You Content?
Contentment is peaceful. It is accepting. It is working with what is. There is action in contentment but it comes from an inner awareness and acceptance of the gradual unfolding of life and circumstances. Be content in a moment. Be content with a completed task. Be content with the sound of rain on the window. Look for moments of contentment in your day and absorb and embrace them.
Strengthen Your Foundation
A foundation must be aligned. It must be on solid ground. It must be taken care of – maintained.
My body is giving me this lesson. A year ago I had a tilted pelvis on the right side. I have no idea when it happened or how. A year ago the pelvis organically untilted and I have spent the past year feeling my body realign herself based on the proper placement of the foundation. It has not been comfortable.
Has your foundation tilted? Is the ground upon which you built your foundation still solid or has some weakness seeped into it to take away its solidarity? How do you even know if your foundation is off kilter? What are you doing about it if it is?
I have used energy to help my body self correct – focused energy, vibrational energy, intuition, intention, awareness. So how do we shore up a foundation that has gotten off-kilter?
We don’t do it with our mind because that’s too limiting. We do it with the energy of wholeness. And intention. I’m straightening the foundation of my body with both intention and physical action. I have used acupressure and vibrational healing and focused intention. It is working. I’m healing and balancing and restoring and strengthening the foundation of my life, mostly I examine and adjust and strengthen my spiritual beliefs. For instance, I don’t think we need to try to raise our vibration, I think we just need to recognize that we already are the highest cosmic vibration. I believe in the unfolding and revealing of our next as an organic process that is unfolding, gradual, and ongoing. Don’t make a new choice without questioning what you need to let go that might be in opposition to it, might keep it from flourishing. If I have a belief about the aging process being one of deterioration, it is a bit of a challenge for me to envision my body getting stronger and straighter. But when I envision an easy and active restoration, my body does grow stronger.
Begin with your foundation. Examine your beliefs and your expectations of what is possible with stronger images and stronger expectations. Strengthen your foundation from within your inner vision.
===HOW TO BE A STRONG CONTRIBUTING MEMBER OF THE DIVERSE CIRCLE OF LIGHT BEINGs===
I drew the oracle card “Vitality and Joy” on the first of the year and passed to give thought to what that means to me and my choices. Vital. I want to be vital. I want to be relevant. I want to make a difference. All of these take vitality. All of these take energy, vibrancy, liveliness. How vibrant is your day? How joyous is your life? Are you filling your thoughts with vibrant expectations? How can you add the power of vitality to your life?
===BROADEN YOUR HORIZON – EXPAND YOUR VIEW===
Our Unfolding Adventure
Our role in this evolving unfolding adventure is also evolving and unfolding. We are light-bearers. We are to walk the earth in the highest state of inclusive awareness that we can muster. Just holding that consciousness affects others. There may not be a specific physical action you are to take. But there is a specific spiritual focus you are to continue to expand as you become aware that you already are the highest vibration possible. And you must live with that awareness. We’re not just Light Bearers, we are way-showers – holding inclusiveness in our hearts. Being compassionate in all we think and say and do. How do you see your own role as a Light Bearer? What lives are you touching? How are you touching them? Do you need to do more? What will that be?
2022 – Gestation and Release
According to astrology, 2022 is a year of gestation and release. That means ideas take time to evolve. It will be a time of experimentation, trying things on for size and potential, so to speak.
2022 is a time for broad reorganization and expanded liberation. That means we have to really pay attention to the choices that we are or are not making. It is a time to let go of an outdated, outgrown way of being and go exploring to establish and shape the unfolding feminine into our lives and choices.
2022 is time to investigate our assumptions, rebuild the foundations of our lives and review and perhaps rechoose our social contracts.
You don’t know what you don’t know. You don’t see what you don’t see. We have to examine our assumptions and beliefs because they are no longer true. The world is changing and we must change with it. Learn to look at things from a new perspective. Put yourself in the other person’s place. What beliefs are you holding onto that you simply absorbed from your family that are not really beliefs that you want to establish in your life? Question everything.
This is a period of rebirth. We have to give it time to evolve. Be patient. Be aware. Be very willing to change. 2022 is a period of gestation and release. What are you birthing?
===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
What Do You Want to Learn Next?
I love to learn so every once in a while, I take so many classes that I really feel full up. I would like not to do that in the coming year. So I’m giving a little thought to what I actually do want to learn. I will always take the free Shift Network summits on Shamanism Qigong and Self-healing. But I don’t need any more classes in any of those. What I am doing is biofield healing, which is basically energetic healing. As I work with acupressure, Qigong, intention, breathing, meditation and visioning, I’m getting results in my body which is very heartening for an old person. I guess I really don’t have to know how this works, although that would be interesting to learn more about. I will stay open to learning new ways to heal in the biofields.
Do you ever get excited about too many things so that you feel overwhelmed and can barely choose? I have a tendency to do that. So I’m suggesting we pause here at the beginning of this new year and examine what we may now know enough about, and give some thought to what we might want to learn more about, and still leave room for the unexpected “Oh my, I have to learn how to do this because it looks like fun.” Be discerning. Be selective. Keep learning with calls to you and put aside whatever does not.
Let Your World Unfold from Peace and Compassion
For all this striving to figure out my next, I drew an oracle card that said Peace and Compassion. I am to strengthen my spiritual practice to gain more inner peace and let my outer work grow out of my deepening compassion.
Create a New Dream
The present creates the future. Create a new dream for the earth. What do you need to change in the here and now that will change the future? What are you focusing on? Keep it positive. What do you believe is possible? Raise your sights and let the yet-to-be-known unfold and reveal itself.
If you focus on the negative, you give it great power. That doesn’t mean you have to ignore its presence, you just have to focus on the alternative to the negative. What is possible? What would you prefer? Envision that. Envision a world of peaceful cohabitation with great loving care for our planet earth and for each other. Create a vision of wholeness. Inclusion. Where is your focus? What is your expectation? Imagine a new world into being. Create a new dream and step into it.
===THE UNFOLDING DIVINE FEMININE===
The Vision You Hold For Yourself
Growing up I did not realize how deeply ingrained were the social expectations for women. Get married, raise kids or be an old maid. No college. No career. It’s interesting how a collective expectation or lack of expectation can color your choices. Young women of today have a wide range of careers, opportunities, and choices. Not all men see those same opportunities for women, but women can see them. We know we are smart. We know we can lead corporations. We know we can invent things. We just get to go do it.
I’ve been thinking about the composers of symphonies lately – how there seem to be no women who wrote classical music. I’m sure there were women that could or can and maybe do, but the great masters are all men. Women have to learn to see new possibilities for themselves.
The other question I had about classical composers is how did they hear their work? One does not just have an orchestra handy to practice with, to try out their ideas and harmonies. They made their whole composition up in their head. What a lesson that is! Make up your life in your head. An artist sees a picture in her mind before she paints it. A writer feels the story unfolding within before she writes it.
I’m not sure where I would start making up my life as a young woman of today. I would want to look closely at my passion and my gifts. I would identify how I would like to be in service, then I would look to see how I might translate that into supporting myself as a living.
I love to write, and I particularly love the freedom I have now to write whatever I want to, but I also did my fair share of writing television and radio commercials and black-and-white copy for advertising agencies and web content for clients in order to earn my way.
What would you teach the young woman of today about her future? She does not need to have children unless she wants to. She does not need a partner although she could have one. They don’t have to live a lifetime together and they could. The profession that may ultimately call her may not even have been invented yet. So here are young women standing at the entrance of their future with no clear paths or expectations. What freedom! What a challenge! What an opportunity!!!!
Most of my friends are in the vicinity of retirement which means they have a whole other 30 years to do something fun or great or meaningful. It’s a bit like starting over but with a bigger arsenal of skills and experience. Look at your gifts, look at your passion, and look at the possibilities. Then go exploring. 30 years is a long time for a new adventure. What is the vision you hold for your
=== DEEEP SONG PHILOSOPHIES ===
What If You Were Persecuted?
Years ago I wrote a post titled “What If You Were Persecuted.” In response to gay rights, Bush had just said that all marriages should be between a Christian man and woman. I hadn’t been Christian for a long time by then and I was acutely aware of limitations being set on me by someone who did not know me at all. I didn’t want to get married again, but I did not like the limitation of my spirituality. What if someone tried to stop me from traveling my chosen spiritual path?
I experienced a sense of persecution for the first time in my life and I wrote about it.
Two things happened with that article – it was investigated by Army Intelligence and it was republished in a lesbian publication. Different takes on the idea of persecution – danger to the country, danger to personal freedom.
The word “persecution” means oppression, victimization, tyranny.
Every time we take away a freedom, a right, it is a form of persecution. It is denying others the freedoms we so greatly cherish. Look closely at your own beliefs and prejudices about what others have the right to do. Women’s freedom of choice over their bodies is high on my list. The right to vote is paramount in its importance. When we deny others their freedom twice, freedom of choice and their right to be heard, we are killing off the soul of humanity. We are denying the greater whole its presence. Do not participate in taking away the rights of others. Make all choices for the highest good and well-being of all concerned.
May we hear and heed the call of the Divine Feminine.
May we expand our hearts and our expectations.
May we walk the Path of Light with a sure foot.
May we keep our gaze on the summit.
May we take this journey with a full heart.
I entwine my light with yours and we move forward to guide the way.
===REFLECTIONS OF A DEEPER SONG PODCAST===
I had a bit of a giggle when I thought of this. I live in a Senior Center in the Midwest. With the exception of the Social Services Director who has become a friend, I have nothing in common with anyone here so I do not go to any events. The giggle came when I imagined sitting at a table of seniors where someone asked me what was going on in my life and my answer would be: “I’m doing self-healing using the bitfields and exploring the unfolding role of the Divine Feminine on our planet.” Pretty sure I would not start up any conversations or make any new friends.
Seek out like-minded friends who stimulate your thinking and give yourselves room to open up new vistas of exploration.
Zoom is an awesome way to deepen international friendships. Reach out and connect with more like-minded people this year. You deserve stimulating friendships.
