Open New Doors and Close Old Ones
Creating Conscious Connection
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
There was an urgency to it. I needed and wanted to complete a lot of podcast scripts that I had been working on so that I could move forward. But what happened was that when I went through them, out of about 20, I’m only going to record two. Because I have already moved on.
Change happens slowly and then suddenly it races forward with great abandonment. We need to pay attention to the sudden changes and be willing to move forward and keep up.
I’ve been feeling this new direction unfold for six months. It was when I took the class from Peruvian Shaman Puma that I got the idea to record the seven rays. And that idea opened a whole new way to share energy with you, as guided meditations. So instead of exploring and sharing what I find, this next part of my path is to help you find your own answers. How fun for both of us! A few days later, I woke with a zillion ideas of inner Journeys to Self that I can make into experiential podcasts.
Listen and you will hear. Follow those nudges, particularly the ones that say “go exploring”. Check out the smallest nudges and give them serious consideration. The nudge is the universe talking to you. Pay attention. Be ready to close some old doors and open some new ones.
My work is also being transformed by my new understanding that we are already the highest vibration, we just have to remember that and access it with focused awareness. It’s not about raising our vibration because it is already raised. It’s about allowing ourselves to experience ourselves as the highest vibration. That may take some practice. And that’s a whole new direction for me.
Notice what you have outgrown or gone past and leave it behind. Make room for the new adventure.
Sometimes it is a specific need that makes you take a different path. Sometimes it is an unexpected opportunity or a new insight. Let some doors close as you open new ones.
All things unfold in their perfect time. But we have to pay attention. We get to go exploring with each new nudge. And we have to be open to walking down a new path.
What doors are opening in your life, and what doors are closing?

More Ray Journeys!
I’m on a roll here.
The seven rays are portals, pathways, rainbow bridges to our energetic origins and by connecting with them and interacting with them, we become seeds for the new humanity.
The core purpose of these Deeper Song explorations is to deepen our understanding that we are a center of natural wholeness and organic universality. We are pure energy. We are the universe and we are to consistently come from that place of interconnected, interactive wholeness.

Pay Attention to What’s Happening in the Middle
It was just one cord standing between me and having my new 21-inch computer monitor work. I plugged one end into the monitor and the other to the outlet and nothing happened. There was no power to the monitor. This went on for days with me plugging and unplugging with no success. Finally, I switched sides of my desk to plug in the cord and in the process of jiggling the cord, the monitor came on!
There was a box in the middle of the cord that does not care to be dangled, it needs to be flat. I had not thought of it as part of the process because there was no plug in or out. There were cords but they were permanently attached. It was just a box on the cord that connected the monitor to the power. I paid attention to both ends but had forgotten to take care of the middle!
There is a life lesson there.
Pay attention to what goes on between the start and the finish.
Is that a lesson for my life? Am I paying enough attention to my current processes, my current insights, my current needs? Only partially. “Middle” is halfway between the beginning and the end. How is my day progressing? Am I still headed in the direction I chose when I check in at mid-day? Am I caring for the middle well enough? How is my project doing? Am I paying attention to how I structure the middle so I have a strong finish?
I’m sure you’ll think of other analogies but do pay attention to the middle of …whether you are doing…
The Seasoning of Your Life
I’ve been there before in my journeys but it was a surprise considering that I had asked about the direction of my life. I have a healing hut in my Sacred Garden. Within it, among other things, there is a cauldron around which three women stand. In this particular journey, they were seasoning it. And great smells came from it. They would periodically taste it. When I asked them what they were doing, they said they were seasoning my life.
That’s an interesting concept – to season your life. We can spice things up or leave strong tastes out. We can acquire new tastes and explore different flavors. The seasoning of my life is changing. The focus of my work is changing. All I know to do is to keep trying new flavors, new seasonings, new combinations. And see what I like. See what resonates with me.
Are you an experimenter? Do you try different combinations in your life? Do you explore new seasonings? Is your soup of life a bit bland? Or is it too spicy already?
Add new flavors, new seasonings, to the cauldron of your life.
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
What is important to you? And are you achieving the balance you need and want in order to pursue and cultivate the different aspects of your life? Working from home has presented both opportunities and challenges. The rapidly changing discoveries and opportunities that keep evolving are pushing us to keep up and constantly learn new skills and reconsider our choices.
As you make your choices, both personal and professional, keep your life in balance. Explore the conscious flow of new opportunities and ideas that are gushing out of this evolving era and see what resonates with you, what you might use in designing your next phase.
Make room for your internal work. That should be the priority. When I create balance in my life, I have room to explore and contemplate, and go down different paths to check them out and productively share what I discover. If I don’t make room to explore, I will probably not make time to change.
Create a way to be contemplative. Establish a pattern of going within and seeing how you’re doing. Is your current path rewarding? Is it taking you where you want to go? Are there new opportunities you want to explore? Look to see if you are maintaining balance between the inner and outer worlds that you wish to explore.
In stillness, you will find your next step. Not in creating a master list or actively exploring new openings, although those are part of the process. Your awareness comes in the stillness. Create some stillness. Be in it. And find your balance.

===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
Anticipate the Future
There’s so much change going on in the world today, we are hard-pressed to keep up, let alone think ahead. But think ahead we must. We need to anticipate the potential of the future. And how we might take advantage of it, adapt to it, move forward within it.
But most of all, I think we need to look closely at how we are evolving. And how we might create for ourselves new work, new ways to make a living. New ways to be in service.
People are no longer retiring, they are creating new phases of productivity in their lives. 65 to 95 is 30 years!!!!!
When you look at what you are doing with the idea of changing it, all sorts of new possibilities show up. And you get to go adventuring.
I remember when I moved from New York City to Santa Rosa, California with my special needs granddaughter in tow. I had called ahead to the temp agencies and I knew exactly what I could earn. I did get work right away and the first place that I worked offered me a full-time position. But I said, “No, I want to go exploring.” So I continued to explore the wine country through temp work and got to work at everything from wineries to fire stations. But that’s my version of working. To explore.
At 88, I am doing all my exploration in my mind, and online. And sharing it with whoever is interested in what I’m discovering. And I certainly have no idea where this is taking me. Or us. But I like the open road. I like the ability to travel on and off the beaten path. And then turn around if that path ceases to resonate.
This idea of having a productive end-stage of life is powerful. I am the only person in this senior center who has any out-reaching productivity going on. I can’t imagine what they are doing with their days.
Look at your life. Look at your gifts. Look at what you love to do. And go make up your next source of income for the next fulfilling part of your life.
Change is happening very rapidly. Be flexible. Be willing to let go of what no longer works. And have a great time exploring and unfolding your next.
=== DEEPER SONG ORACLE MESSAGE===
Even the slightest shift will take us in a new direction. And the world today is shifting like a whirling dervish. The Oracle card I drew for us is “shift.” What do you need to shift in order to move forward? Are you looking in as many directions as you can to identify your next possibility, your next potential place of service? What belief or expectation do you need to shift in order to allow you to move forward? Even the slightest shift will change where you end up. Take one new step forward and shift your view.
When the Current Catches You
It’s interesting how rapidly one moves forward when you are going in the right direction. I feel like a kite cut from my string and I am soaring and swooping and having a lovely time on a summer afternoon. I have completed a phase. I have left it and moved on. I have totally immersed myself in this new stage of exploration. It is incredibly freeing. The ideas are exciting and promising and abundant!
What are you hanging onto that needs to be released? Is it a plan? Is it an idea? Is it an expectation? Let go and then stand on the edge of opportunity and look around. Use your imagination to see where each path may lead. Then turn in a new direction and go exploring.
The energy of our experience here on earth is changing rapidly. It is a great opportunity to explore further afield and then change directions. Come exploring with me. We have work to do and discoveries to make.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
Leave It Behind
I lay down what is no longer needed and move forward.
I lay down what is no longer needed and move forward, free now to travel a new journey of exploration.
I lay down what is no longer needed and move forward, free now to travel a new journey of exploration. New pathways call to me.
I answer the call.
