The Lesson is in the Journey
Creating Conscious Connection
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
I was looking for my “next” in a journey. And I got the message that the lesson is not in my destination, the lesson is in the journey itself. What I learn. What I choose. What I do. How I change.
I got a new power animal this month in my journeys and it was a camel. I’ve never had a camel before. And the message to me is that what counts right now is the journey itself. The persistent, put one foot in front of the other, make conscious choices journey.
I have received some new awareness recently – partially because I went to a naturopath and was given some new choices to make – which almost immediately made a noticeable difference in my physical life. One day I didn’t have this information. And the next day I did. I made new choices and my life changed.
That’s sort of how change happens. An opportunity shows up, we make a new choice and off we go in a different direction.
I changed some habits and found that I had been beating myself up for some time because I had not been taking certain steps to care for my physical well-being. I have been blaming myself for failing and I was not exactly aware of it. So while the choices I was making were not particularly good. The emotional damage I was doing to myself was even more detrimental. Forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for not being aware. Forgive yourself for not making wiser choices. Yes, there is a lesson in every choice and a consequence whether you do or do not make a choice. But we make choices that either give us a lesson or take us to a meaningful next step. The point is to keep exploring and keep choosing.
So I watched my mind give me a hard time where it doesn’t need to give me a hard time. Every choice bore lessons I needed to have in order to move forward. Some choices worked. Some did not. That was part of the lesson. Don’t beat yourself up for the choices that do not work out well, it was all part of your learning process. Celebrate the choices you make that work out well. Release those that do not as lessons learned. Keep exploring and making mindful changes and your life will move forward in a direction that supports your life purpose. Keep moving. Keep exploring The Lesson is in the Journey.

This is now one of my favorite journeys…
Journey to a Chamber of the Seven Sacred Rays
A Deeper Song Adventure
After working with each of the seven sacred rays individually, it occurred to me that we can create a journey for ourselves that allows the rays to speak to us, to choose us, we just need to show up. So in my journey world, I created the Chamber of the Seven Rays. This Deeper Song Guided Journey to the Chamber of the Sen Rays is an opportunity to experience yourself as the all-encompassing cosmic energy that you are. It is an opportunity to explore your infinite self. It will deepen your awareness of yourself as pure vibration momentarily expressing in human form.
Welcome to the unseen world…
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.

In this episode we explore
A Deeper Song Guided Journey to the Chamber of the Seven Rays
To Sing a Deeper Song Consider Exploring Each Ray Individually:
The Song You Sing Today
Each day is like a packed Symphony Hall and we are on stage to offer our best performance. We have tuned our own instrument. We have written our own songs. We have practiced living in harmony. And each day is an opportunity to create sacred music. How are you doing with that one? Is your instrument in tune? Have you written any new melodies lately? Who is listening to your music? How is it affecting them? Keep your instrument tuned and sing your individual song to the world in celebration of an increasingly aware life.
All That We Are
“All that we are, is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything.
What we think, we become.” -Buddha
Harness the Lessons of Cycles
Nature teaches us the power of cycles. The ebb and flow. Cycles are about letting one thing step in front to lead for a while and then make room for another new cycle to step forward and take the lead. In the V formation that migrating birds use, you see each birds is actually cutting the force of the wind for the bird behind it. And the birds periodically change leaders to give the head guy a rest. They change their formation. They shift their place of service for the benefit of the overall group.
There’s a time for everything and everything is perfect in its own time. But how can we tell that? The universe always points the way. We just have to pay attention. And we have to be willing to stop going in the direction we are headed, pause, notice what has changed, what we have learned, where we are in the cycle and reconsider re-chose, and follow the guidance of the cycle, of nature. What cycles are being shown to you? Are you paying attention?

Life Aft4er Death
I learned about the Michael Newton books in a shamanic class with Hank Wesselman. There are there books and I’m going to reread them. “Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives”, “Destiny of the Souls” and “Life Between Lives.”
He does past life regressions looking specifically for what happens between lives. We review our just-lived life, decide on our next move, and if we decide to reincarnate, we make some agreements, and in our soul pods we decide how were are to interact to help each other in that upcoming journey. We each have quite an adventure coming up when we leave this planet… There is more to do…
If a plant is too crowded it cannot grow. If a closet is too full the clothes will wrinkle. We need to keep conscious space in our lives. That means embracing times when we have nothing planned. We simply are. We tune into ourselves and see what we need or want or feel like doing. Not what needs to be done, not what we planned to do, but what we feel like doing. What we want to do. What is calling to us within that reflective pans. What our inner voice says today. Create spaces in your life where you simply ask “What do I feel like doing?” Then do that.
Buddha Bowls Ready to Eat in Minutes
Daily Harvest has totally chaining my life. I was not cooking for myself and the result was I was also not eating well. These delicious and creative frozen organic vegetarian meals are shipped in dry ice and take five minutes to heat up on the stove. Daily Harvest has smoothies and healthy treats too. I seem to eat only half of each bowl at a meal so it is super affordable. A life-changing find in the U S.… For $25 off your order use the code RE-6T42B72

Capture Your Insights
On my computer desktop, I have a easily acessed document that is titled “Write About”. It is where I put the phrases and sentences and concepts that seem profound to me, they seem core to my current process, and that I want to explore enough to be able to place them effectively in my life. They are core to my understanding, core in my evolution, and important that I share with you. Many of them come from my own journeys and my daily drawing of an oracle card. I write all those ideas in this one easy-to-access document and when I review it I can easily begin to work with some amazing insights that show up from my inner world that I can explore and apply to my outer world. We’re going to be considering some very interesting things. Stay tuned.
===OUR EVOLVING FUURE===
The Separating Paths
I have been saddened by this idea ever since I heard about it from Sandra Ingerman nearly two years ago. She said that some of us were to serve as a bridge to the new consciousness and not everyone would follow us. And that had to be OK. And she’s right. Not everyone is interested in or willing to or capable of accessing their higher consciousness. That apparently is not what they came into this world to do. But those of us who are aware of ourselves as high vibration have to live up to that. We are to incorporate that awareness into our lives as an example to others about one way to be on this planet at this point in time. So as I watch a certain stratum of humanity work at very low levels, choosing separation and accessing only the lower vibrations, I move into visions of inclusion. And the well-being of all. The highest good for all. And let the choices people make direct their path just as my conscious choices are dieting mine.
As I focus on continually accessing the high vibration we all are, how do I, in my own life, participate in this journey of awareness, of experiencing ourselves, as the highest consciousness? I make time to be in my Still Point. I play my flutes to nature and look out the window at the subtle lessons in nature’s acceptance of its constantly unfolding cycles. I listen to the ever-deepening teachings of nature, learning the lessons of patience and constant birth and growth and death. I have a job to do, to help anchor the awarenss of each of us as light beings. And trust that those who are meant to see themselves as light, will do so. I focus on the unfolding change before me, what is possible, what I want to help manifest.
In the long run, we have only our own lives to manage. So I can make sure that I have no prejudiced beliefs or expectations. As I raise my vision of humanity to become aware of those of us who are aware of ourselves as light beings who are focused on radiating light into a group consciousness, I help raise the consciousness of all who see it and recognize that higher consciousness in themselves. That’s our work as members of the Circle of Light Beings. Whether we are active transformational leaders or are simply participating by being the brightest light we can be individually, it’s all part of the same pattern of expanding awareness. As we shine light on a higher level of existence – others, those who are meant to, those who can – will see our brighter light and raise their gaze, and their expectations of what is possible and allow themselves to move into an awareness of themselves as an expression of the highest vibration. We are each to raise our consciousness and
live our lives as Loving Light.
That’s how we help change the world.
Lift Your Sails and Wait
Major changes are happening in my body. I like to think of it as healing. But healing hurts. I continue to make adjustments for my eyesight and my body’s reluctant flexibility. I don’t know what direction it’s going to take me in. All I know to do is lift my sails with as much love and flexibility and determination as I can muster and wait for the Winds of Change to fill them. Are you opening your sails to change?
Looking back over your life you will see some choices that you made that were life-changing. Sometimes you were aware that they would be, like getting married or not getting married, and other times you just made the choice and didn’t think ahead. Whatever decision you make changes the trajectory of your life. You are wise if you make those choices thoughtfully and purposefully.
What do you need to change?
I’ve made some new physical choices that are going to influence my body and the support I do or do not get from it. I have made recent choices to willingly move into a new level of spiritual exploration that is just making itself known to me. I have no real idea where either of these choices will take me, but they are conscious and deliberate choices and they will change my life. What life-changing choices are you making today?
=== DEEpER SONG ORACLE MESSAGE===
The oracle card I drew for us this time is “revolution.” As in cycles. Letting the ebb and flow of birth and growth and death simply unfold. Accepting the fact that we are always in a process of change because we were always in a cycle. Notice the flow of your life. See if you can identify where you are in process of the cycle. And be patient as your awarenss increases and your life unfolds to reveal new possibilities and new choices.
I have begun to Journey to the Cosmic Ancestors to ask for guidance on this next phase of my journey. I am particularly seeking guidance about my role. It seems I’ve been promoted so to speak. Rather than seeing myself as an explorer of the unseen world, the Cosmic Ancestors suggested that I consider myself a translator of cosmic consciousness! Well wow! Not even sure what that means. But changing the focus of my role changes where I look for the answers and for the ideas for me to explore. Do you have an idea of your overarching purpose? Do you know or can you see why you are on planet earth at this particular time? As the world goes through a rough time, I moved more deeply into the unseen world, I reached out to Cosmic Consciousness and asked for guidance and how I could be in service. How is your role changing? Do you see yourself in a different place of service? Are you developing a different view of what is possible? Look closely at what is calling to you and answer the call.
I’m off to figure out how to be a translator for the cosmic consciousness.
