The Call of Curiosity
Creating Conscious Connection
Curiosity is your guide. Curiosity is your teacher. The more curious you are, the more expansive will be your life experience. Cultivate curiosity on all levels of your life.
I love the free summits on The Shift Network. Each time I attend, I learn something and often find a new teacher. I take five or six 7-week classes a year.
I read books on what happens when we leave the planet according to past-life regression studies. And it gives me ideas about how I want to shape my planetary life. What my purpose is. And how I view “next.”
I listen to my inner voice with great enthusiasm and explore its suggestions.
Follow your curiosity. See where it takes you. What are you being called to do? How could you do that? What do you need to learn/understand/explore in order to know how to bring it into your life? Particularly in this rapidly changing era, we need to keep exploring, we need to stay curious, and we have to stay open to change.
Curiosity takes me on adventures. It opens new doors. It shows me new possibilities. How do you know what to do next if you don’t go exploring? And how do you go exploring unless you are curious? Would I like to do this? Can I do that? How do I learn to do this? Where will this new idea fit into my life? Where does this unfolding opportunity lead me? Is this step mine to take? Those are some of the questions to ask and then allow curiosity to find the answers that will deepen your life experience and direct your path.
Use the quality of curiosity to expand your options. Then see where it takes you. Curiosity takes me on to new dimensions, it takes me on journeys to the unseen world. Curiosity raises my expectation of what is possible and what my role is. I listen closely to my inner voice. It takes me on adventures I could never have unless I began by being curious.
What are you curious about that you need to take time to explore? What unexpected thought has shown up recently that made you want to go exploring? To try something new? To change in some way?
Learn to listen to those internal nudges that say “consider this”. “What if you did this? What if you walk on this path for a while, where will it lead you?” How will you let your curiosity guide you today?

===REFLECTIONS OF A DEEPER SONG PODCAST===
We Are Cosmic Consciousness
A Deeper Song Expanded Perspective
It was a giant leap to an unexpected place and it totally altered how I saw things. What I saw was possible. What I expected was achievable. It was like going from looking only at the view from my apartment window to suddenly looking out at everything from my soul star. My Infinite self. Which is exactly what this new perspective is. When we begin to look at our life, our human expression, from the standpoint of being cosmic consciousness, everything changes.
Cara Lumen, spiritual philosopher and Founder of the Deeper Song Community is a cosmic explorer who consciously travels into the unseen world to serve as a bridge to help us expand our relationship with the spiritual world. She shares what she learns and guides us to the next level so we can sing a deeper song.
In this episode we explore
We Are Cosmic Consciousness
To Sing a Deeper Song Consider:
The Power of Affirmation
“All is well in my World.”
“Everything I need comes to me with ease.”
“I am whole, perfect, and complete.”
What kind of affirmations do you give yourself – particularly unconsciously. “I can’t do that.” “I don’t deserve that.” “That will never happen.”
Look closely at the affirmations you give yourself and make certain they are all positive.
I am going through a process of letting go and establishing new patterns so I might say “The perfect new opportunities appear to guide me to my next place of service” or “I easily hear and interpret the sacred messages from within.” Or “Today is a constant blessing” or “My body heals as I sleep.”
Get creative and start actively using positive affirmations in your life and notice what happens.
Our Role as Transformation Leaders
There are members of the transformational community all over the planet who are holding High Watch for the world. We sit in sacred silence and radiate out light into the world – to the people, the situations, the environment, our future. We join with other light beings and begin to cover the planet in healing, wholing, light vibration. We work together to raise the collective consciousness. That’s how we hold High Watch for the World.

What Have You Settled For?
Stop for a minute and look at your life, your work, your health and your relationships, and see what you have settled for. It is so easy to not take the extra step or demand the extra level of excellence of yourself and just settle for what shows up and what is comfortable and what is easy.
Keep working on change. My body is doing odd adjustment things but I keep trying new paths to wholeness and I have periodic breakthroughs that mean I’m on the right track. I have to keep trying or I have to settle. And settling for what was going on in my body is not what I’m gonna do.
Are you doing what you love to do? Are you working with people who excite you and motivate you and challenge you and nurture you? Or have you settled? Falling into a path or a routine that is easy will never lead you to the level of excitement and satisfaction you deserve. Keep questioning your choices. Keep challenging yourself. What have you settled for? And how are you going to change that?
===DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE===
The Two Aspects of Your Spiritual Practice
There are two aspects to our spiritual practice, one is to deepen your own embodiment of your connection with spirit and the other is to deepen our connection with source. We want to be certain we are addressing both aspects.
Examining your spiritual practice from both directions may help you become aware of the balance you are or are not creating.
Building on the Life Mandala I have drawn for my life (How to Create a Mandala for Self Healing), I have created a separate mandala for the area of my Life Mandala I labeled “Spirituality”. It has two halves – how I deepen my own embodiment of my connection with spirit and how I deepen my connection with source.
How do you deepen your connection with Cosmic Source?
I sit in my Still Point each day and disappear my body as I listen to and absorb the messages of the unseen world. I take shamanic journeys. I channel messages from the unseen world into a form to share with others. I take shamanic journeys for my own guidance and clarity and for awareness and insights I am to pass along. I pay attention to the organic opportunities and nudges and insights that Cosmic Source gives me.
How do you deepen your own embodiment of your connection with spirit? How do I, here in my humanness, express myself as oneness? As all-inclusive? As the highest vibration? What choices do I make to expand my expression as spirit in this human world? Embodiment plays out in my actions and interactions.
On the physical plane, I continue to cultivate my awareness of the natural vibration of all that is around me. I am expanding my Qigong practice in order to experience a deeper flow of Qi, a deeper awareness of my role as pure energy. I play my flutes and let my expression through their vibration connect me with nature. I make conscious choices that support the well-being of my body.
Give some thought to how you deepen your own embodiment of your connection with spirit and how you deepen your connection with source.
New Moon Awareness
I love the new moon. My life always comes to a slow crawl right before the new moon happens and then it noticeably expands as if I was shot out of a cannon as the cycle moved towards a full moon.
The New Moon was Friday, July 9th. What do you need to release, lay aside, leave behind? It’s time to step forward into a new unfolding and expanding month. What opportunities and insights will you draw to you in the next four week?

===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
I was working with the oracle cards I made for myself and I drew “Phoenix Rising.” I understood this is a time for me to reposition and rebuild for this next segment of my life. Those are major steps.
The phoenix is a sign of re-birth, rising from the ashes to begin anew.
So here we are with a new era of the Sacred Feminine which is definitely in a period of emergence. We are being called upon to make major changes in how we live on our earth world and how we interact with each other. Even our business opportunities and survival opportunities have changed dramatically and we must adjust.
How are we to reposition ourselves and how are we to rebuild based on this rapid and dramatic evolution that is taking place?
I had already taken major steps to reposition myself when I realized that our job is not to “raise” our vibration, it is to recognize and express the fact that we are already the highest cosmic vibration. (We Are Cosmic Consciousness- A Deeper Song Expanded Perspective) We have just covered it up in our humanness. For me that means there is no more striving to raise my vibration, there is only the work of sharing myself as cosmic awareness, cosmic vibration, a reciprocal energy.
The rebuilding part is an interesting concept at 88. But I am making some conscoius changes in my physical plane expression. It has to do with the food I choose to eat and the physical movement I do or do not choose to practice. It’s totally up to me to make choices to rebuild a bodily expression that has gotten a bit cranky.
Look at your life. In what areas do you need to reposition yourself, rethink your options and make different choices? Once you have examined and chosen, you can begin to rebuild. This is the time. Do the work.
=== DEEPER SONG ORACLE MESSAGE===
Energy attracts. What we draw to us in our lives is drawn there by the energy we are putting out. Our being. It is what we are thinking and doing and expecting that acts as a magnet to draw to us our next steps, our next adventures, the people who are to walk beside us on this part of our path. So if you’re not getting what you want, check your own energy. What do you believe you deserve? What do you believe is possible? Those are major questions to consider whenever your life seems stuck. Who are you drawing to you? What opportunities are showing up? What new ideas? What new possibilities? Change your energy, change your life. Change your thinking, change your life.
The Choices We Make
It’s interesting to look back over a long life and notice the choices that you made and where they took you. It’s not about redoing them. It’s not about being regretful. Be glad. They were your choices, your lessons, your adventures. It is about noticing what happened when you made those choices. What the results were. What the lessons still are. It all contributed to who you are today.
Every choice we make changes where we go next, and where we end up. I have made several major choices in my long life that were daring or unusual or odd and very very big. They impacted me. They impacted others. And they certainly led me on a path I did not have access to if I had not made that original huge change.
If I have not left the Midwest for New York City, I would never have gotten the holistic training that is so vital to who I am, what I offer, and how I live my life. If I had not raised my granddaughter by myself, she would not be as successful as she is today. My major choices seem to have been made in the moment, based on a strong sense of knowing it was right. We make choices in every moment that impacts our own lives and the lives of others, and we may or may not understand how far-reaching and impactful they are. I have no idea how some of my ideas and insights affect the lives of others. But periodically I hear from some of you and know that I am giving you something to think about. To consider. And that’s a perfect way to spend my life.
Don’t have any regrets over the choices that are over and done with. Or the opportunities you did not explore. The choices of the past. The paths you did not choose. Do notice where your choices took you. Do notice what you learned because of those choices. Look back over the friends that you have walked along beside for part of the path and then parted to take separate ways. Cherish the gifts you exchanged along the journey. Look at those who are walking the path beside you today and notice how your own values have changed. Notice how beliefs have changed. And most of all notice your expectations for yourself and the possibilities that lie ahead. For that is the sign of where you were going, the path you are on, the journey you are to take. Choose. Explore. Evaluate. And choose again. Life is an adventure. Enjoy the journey.
===SING A DEEPER SONG ===
No regrets about what was done and what was not done, what was chosen and not chosen.
No regrets about what was done and what was not done, what was chosen and not chosen. Build on what you learned from your choices and let that wisdom be your foundation for “next.”
Keep moving. Keep choosing. Let life unfold.
