Redefine Yourself in the Changing World
Creating Conscious Connection
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
How do you prepare yourself to participate in a world that is changing so rapidly? There are no guidelines because new paths keep opening up. What we get to do is go exploring, look closely at what is unfolding, and stay flexible.
We’ve talked about the who-and-what statement before but because the world is changing so rapidly, it’s time to do it again from a broader perspective. We need to see what new and unexpected opportunities and needs have opened up and how our goals and expectations have changed. Become aware of how your place of service is evolving, see how who you serve has changed, and become aware of what you need to leave behind that is no longer yours to do.
The operative word here is “change.” The world is changing. We need to change too.
The more chaotic the world, the more I retreat into inner work as my place of service. But what does that look like? What does that do for the world? How do I share it?
In my journey work, I get phrases like: My work is about seeing possibilities, developing potential, and exploring unique combinations.
My current mission is about helping people realize they are higher consciousness, and our mission as Light Bearers is to hold High Watch for the planet and help others recognize the universal light within themselves.
Our role changes as we change, as we become more aware, more prepared to move forward. And when the time is right, we are shown the next path to take.
Spend some contemplative time and answer this statement: I help (people you serve) to do (what you help them do) so that (what they can do because of what you offer/do.)
Start a document on your computer to keep track of the insights you receive about your evolving place of service – how it is unfolding, ideas you are to help it manifest.
I have collected notes from my shamanic journeys that say:
“My work is about gathering lights together to make a more radiant way of being. My job is to help them realize their own powerful vibration and radiate it out where they are. So we are points of light. We are expanding consciousness.”
These are simply ideas that have shown up in my own thinking and that call to me. You will find your own messages. Simply go within and ask for guidance, then listen to the nudges and positive suggestions that show up. Listen and then choose. Our roles are changing. The path grows more specific. The group traveling it are more focused, we are the Circle of Light Beings, the Light Bearers, the guides to the New Humanity.
Do the inner work. Ask what your role is now in this unfolding of the new humanity. Then go do that.
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I listen closely to my inner voice and learn to interpret its messages.

Journey to the Sacred Masculine
Journey to the Sacred Feminine
A Deeper Song Adventure
We contain both the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine. It doesn’t make any difference how we have manifested here on earth, they are both within us. And they each play a role. I thought that as an independent woman, I identified more with a sacred masculine, but now I understand that the sacred feminine is creative and inclusive, and eager to share and serve others. We have both the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine within us at all times.

Ode to My Inner Voice
I love my inner voice. I love how she speaks up. I love how she nudges me. I listen to my inner voice who is within me all the time. Sometimes she gives me just a word but it is a word that I know that I am to build upon and explore and use as an anchor for where I am to go next.
Sometimes my inner voice gives me complete sentences and ideas to share and develop. When I turn to my computer and capture the messages from my inner voice, they can stay floating and etheric or they can get very detailed and instructive. My inner voice is always inspirational and encouraging.
My inner voice is very wise.
We are good friends, my inner knowing and I. I am grateful for her guidance. What is your relationship with your inner Voice? How will you deepen it? Be still and listen.
Heal Your Whole Self
The imbalances that show up in your physical body are signs of an imbalance on two levels, your physical level and your spiritual level. You must work with both in order to bring balance to your human expression – the wholeness that is you. So as I do outward things to balance my physical body, I also have to look within at what beliefs and expectations helped to cause the imbalance. It could be fear. It could be uncertainty. It could be something I brought with me over the channels of time. Do some releasing work around whatever is manifesting out of balance on the physical plane. Release old beliefs. Release old fears. And center yourself in that awareness that we are cosmic consciousness and therefore we are innately whole, perfect, and complete. Make room for your body to align itself with that truth of who you are.
Watch for Emerging New Cycles
We are always somewhere in a cycle. The beginning, the middle, the end. It helps to be aware of that. And it helps to notice when a new cycle has begun. It helps to notice where you are in the changing cycle so you can see the potential and possibilities that are unfolding. A new cycle means it is a time to make new choices. A time to be aware and observant. It is a time to redirect your path and choose your destination. Do you have a new cycle emerging? Where is it taking you? What are your choices? Are you listening?
Listen with your heart and follow its guidance.
Do the Inner Work
As I begin my work to learn Zang Fu Gong from Daily Lee, I am reminded how important intention is. We can use our minds to focus an intention – an intention to release, to clear, to strengthen – whatever is needed in a particular area of the body. Directed Intention. Let’s call it Directed Intention. I have just finished reviewing one of Daisy’s classes as I write this and my whole body is tingling with Qi energy. Bear in mind, I cannot stand up straight at this point in time but I worked with the Qigon movements I was being shown and as I sit here writing this, my whole body is tingling. And for all practical purposes I waved my arms around a bit and shifted my weight and my focus but the intentions were powerful. Images of bringing up energy from the Earth. Images of bringing down energy from our Soul Star, Images to release and clear and increase strength. Our mind is very powerful. Use your mind to send a specific intention into a specific area of your body. Have those intentions be to release blockages, clear the energy meridians in that area of your body, strengthen your physical structure – all with the focus of your mind and a few intentional hand movements. Focus the Qi energy within your body wherever it is needed. However it is to be used. Bring the resources of Gaia and your Soul Star into your body and direct them where they are needed. However they are to be used. Learn to interpret the energy flow of your body and use your intention to direct balancing Qi wherever it is needed.
You focus energy with intention. Let the Qi do the work.

Ceremony As Mindfulness
I’m working on a podcast script about ceremony because I would like to understand the basic elements and also make some choices about adding more ceremony into my life. I’m looking for simple and easy things to do. Recently I drew “ceremony” in the oracle cards I made for myself and in the course of examining that concept, I realize that ceremony is mindfulness. So even the shortest pause, the shortest aware pause to acknowledge and reflect and accept is ceremony. What does that awareness change for you?
Pause to Listen
If you stop what you’re doing right now and close your eyes and take a relaxing breath and listen, you will hear the heartbeat of the universe. In the stillness is everything. In the stillness are the answers. In the stillness are the insights. In the stillness is a certainty and clarity about next steps. I call it our Still Point. Move to your Still Point to immerse yourself in the sacredness of the moment. Pause to listen and feel and experience and choose. Pause to listen.

Self-Healing – Do the Work
I am studying with two sources who are teaching me how we can heal and balance our bodies by moving Qui. My body is sort of a mess with major realignment going on that makes most of my body muscles hurt. I am taking Daisy Lee’s Zeng Fu Gong Form of Qigong and it is powerful. (Qigong to Renew & Rejuvenate Whole-body Health Discover the Zeng Fu Gong Form to Boost Energy and Release Stress for a Balanced, Joyful life.)
These gentle moves began to immediately release and realign my body. I can do it even in my muscularly jumbled state and it is effective.
I am also taking a free class with Deng, Ming–Dao on The Circle of Qi, The Tao of Energy that is giving me clarity and ideas on the power of Qui and how I can use it to re-balance my body. You can contact him to join the free class at facebook.com/dengmingdao His site is www.Dengmingdao.com
My exploration for ways to self-heal continues. I’m on the right path working with the Chi energy for self -healing and balance.
===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
Get Pro-Active in Creating Your Future
“Intentional change comes from imagining your future,” says Brian Clark in How to Create Your Future Self and I paused to see how I was doing.
I’m not going to die any time soon but I am 88 and have begun to re-read Michael Harner’s books on life between lives.
My body is in a process of change and I’m doing things to make it stronger and more aligned but the range of my future activities are pretty much based on how I help my body get back on track.
But here’s the concept that interested me: “Step one is to accept that you have to proactively create the future self you want.
Just remember that the person on your current path is not the person you were before, and keep your vision for the next version of yourself top of mind.”
What steps am I taking to proactively create my future self? I listen to my inner wisdom and go exploring where it takes me. I am conscious of the new understanding that is being taught to me and I build on what I learn. I am aware of the changing world, concerned about it, and have begun to define my place of service – my work as a transformational leader, holding High Watch for the planet and also holding a light up to show others how to live in their natural state of Cosmic Oneness. And of course, we teach to learn…
This step forward brings me back to the concept that we get what we believe we deserve and what we believe is possible. I get to work on that – particularly the part of me that is possible physically. Bummer.
What do you want your future to look like? The pandemic has opened up a whole new world of work-from-home opportunities that offers more freedom. Technology makes things possible that were not even thought of a few years ago. So part of imagining our future self is limited because the new inventions and discoveries and choices are unfolding.
I’m going to keep exploring and trying out some of the new ideas and possibilities that keep showing up to see how they feel for this stage of my life and if they will take me where I want to go.
Stay open. Be curious. And keep exploring.

Free Yourself from Habit
I have been playing specific songs each day with my flutes as part of my morning meditation. They are songs I made up when I was drumming to the elements and other aspects of my life.
Until one day I didn’t. I stopped my routine, picked up my double flute, and began to improvise to nature. And it was and is beautiful. And freeing. And inspiring. And motivating.
What have you been doing out of mindless habit that could be changed into a new adventure?
Where Are You Being Called to Serve?
“These times they a changing” and we need to change with them. (See Bob Dylan’s song of the ’60s ) So what does that mean to the work you do? What are you offering? How do you spend your time? Who you spend your time with? Where are you being called to serve now?
When we look closely at all that we have to offer, we realize some skills we have, some things we offered are no longer needed. Some of what is no longer relevant or we no longer want to do. And there are new ideas flowing in that need for room to grow.
We have to choose. Given this new stage and age, given the circumstances of your life, given where you want to go next, what do you want to do create and offer next?
I have a new direction calling me and now I’m watching my focus shift and intensify. There are topics I will no longer address. There are portals I have yet to open. So my work has to be fluid. It has to be flexible and open. And I have to listen to the voice within.
What do you love to do most at this point in your life? What is the most lucrative thing that you do, and what is the most lucrative and the least time-consuming thing that you do? What do you love to do? What do you want to learn? Who you want to serve? What are you being called upon to do from your inner wisdom? And which of your many gifts do you want to use at this point in time?
How are you to change? What is your inner world telling you to do next? How are you preparing for it? Listen and choose with awareness.
=== DEEPER SONG ORACLE MESSAGE===
What is forming in your life right now? How are you assisting it in evolving into its most effective place of service?
Formation is a flowing process. It is an evolutionary process. It is allowing something to unfold and to paying attention as it does. Formation is about noticing the signs and the signals, and the shapes that are forming – pay attention to the gradual and unique formation of your unfolding offerings.
Your work, your focus is constantly forming. It shapes and reshapes itself to accommodate what it encounters. Open your heart and let your “next” form from your center. Let it bring with it all you need to know and all you need to give.
What is currently forming is the expression of your inner being as it takes shape so you can share it with the world. What is forming? Clarity, insights, specific steps, new directions? All the formation of our life to change and support it in its natural ebb and flow. Embrace change and allow your life to move into a new formation.
Motion is the movement of constant change. Be open to the flow. Be aware of the fluidity of opportunities that invite you to change. Listen, feel, observe. Bring all that into your awareness and contemplation of the ongoing motion that is your life. Conscious thoughtful actions steadily guided by your inner wisdom. Stillness. Moving to your Still Point before beginning any action. Life is steady motion, we are to be in thoughtful, mindful awareness of the choices that are offered and the thoughtful, intentional choices we make. We are aware of the motion of high vibration – of higher consciousness, of higher purpose. I am in motion today for the higher good.
Shift Your Focus – Raise Your Gaze
The more chaotic and self-destructive the planet becomes, the more I retreat. A higher path has opened up and it is getting wider and more clear. Not everyone will see it or choose it. Bu t I’m on the higher path and plan to stay on it.
In my version of being on a higher path, I work to not be pulled down into the negativity of politics and harmful chaos and negative thinking that is so prevalent on our planet. I can only do that by avoiding it, by not focusing on it or even thinking about it. I’m on a higher path and plan to stay on it.
My focus has changed and I’m working to keep it there. I’m very aware of those of us who are moving into this role of Light Bearer who, among other things, help others recognize their own light within and step into it as their main path. Not everyone will see this alternate path and that has to be Ok. There is so much going on that is negative that I have to make conscious steps not to absorb any of it. I work to keep my sight raised to the unfolding path that leads me to a higher, more positive, more purposeful energy that I can function in and learn from and grow in. I’m not leaving the planet yet, but I am exploring the unseen world.
Do not be pulled down or sucked in by the negative energy, the discord and wrong-doing that is so prevalent on earth today. That is not where I am participating. That is not where I am being called to serve. My role is to keep my light focused on this higher path and help light the way for those of us who are on this higher journey. I keep my sight raised. And I hold high expectations of what is possible for those of us who are taking this higher road.
=My Deeper Song=
The Higher Path
I step upon the higher path and my footsteps lighten.
I step upon the higher path. My footsteps lighten. I feel the compelling and supportive harmony that emanates from those on the path beside me.
I step upon the higher path. My footsteps lighten. I feel the compelling and supportive harmony that emanates form those on the path beside me. I shine. We shine. We are Light Bears leading the way to a new reality.
