Do you feel the breeze of transformation blowing in the wind? Do you feel the “new” pressing in? Do you feel slightly shaky as if the very ground under your feet is less solid? Do you feel you are perched on the edge of a great change? Do you have a sense that nothing will ever be the same?
This Lenten season may be the most significant since we were created in the image and likeness of God. Even the starting day, the 22nd, is significant as an emphasis this year on the feminine of God, the immanence of God, and the rebalancing of our world back into wholeness. Darren Owen says “The number 22 is significant in itself in that it has several interesting properties. There are 22 chapters to revelation in the bible, 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet and 22 paths between sephiroth in the Cabbala [Christian Cabbala; Jewish Kabbala]. The tarot pack which is believed to be based in some part on the Cabbala has 22 cards in its major arcana….if you got your number 4 by adding 22 together these traits are magnified and translate to the spiritual as well as the physical world.” What I see happening this Lenten season is the transformation back into our original wholeness by bringing the spiritual and physical together as one, within our body, as well as in our world.
This year of the chinese water dragon, the union of fire and water; and the coming of the Holy Spirit, the feminine Comforter, Teacher, Guide, and Advocate containing the balance of fire and water, is a reflection of the changes that we need to make within our body. For a long time we have been in an unbalanced, top-heavy, transcendent-loving world that separated human beings from God, the body from the mind and spirit, and separated heavenly life from earthly life. Now our collective human developmental stage is to reunite the spiritual with the physical; to awaken to the immanence of God within our body, and remember our original divine blueprint.
We were made in the image and likeness of God. If you take only Genesis 1:26 as your Lenten meditation “Then God said, “Let us make humans in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion [over their thoughts]“, and meditate on it for 40 days, you will surely transform! “In the image of God he created us; male and female…everything that has the breath of life… And God saw EVERYTHING that he had made, and behold it was VERY GOOD” (Genesis 1:27- 31). God declared “it was good” to all creation. God gave blessings to human beings and declared we were “very good”. It is time to remember our “very goodness!” It is the spirit of error that judged anything of our earthly human life to be bad or less than good! What God meant for good and very good, some men have meant for evil. It is time to reclaim or goodness, wholeness and oneness with God!
This Lent I am doing a new thing! Instead of giving up something, the old transcendent way of negation or via negativa, I am going to add more life-affirming choices. I am going to add more joy! Yeshua said, “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full” (John 15:11). This Lenten season of transformation I am committed to embodying the presence of God, focusing on the immanence of the Beloved, and opening to receive more and more joy of my Adonai. “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be given to you” Matthew 6:33. Yeshua taught that the kingdom of God is within and in our midst. The Lenten journey is therefore meant to be within the body and culminate in the ascension of our consciousness with Yeshua. What quality of God could you begin to embody today?
This morning in my devotions I saw the old way as a circle, with the end point as the beginning point, yet it was a circle that only went from our heart up to the Most High and back to our heart. The figure morphed into a new image of a figure eight, a feminine hourglass form, whose still point beginning and end was still in our heart, but the upper loop to the Most High was contiguous with the lower loop that contains the whole body and earth in a continuous mobius circle. The figure 8 has our heart at the still, center point that unites heaven and earth within our body. It just so happens that in this transformative, amazing year of 2012, Easter falls on April 8th!!! I believe there are no coincidences! “Adonai has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has put eternity [infinity=8] into our hearts” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
This year let us surrender our past, let all that has come before incinerate so the new can arise out of the ashes. Let our illusions, delusions and ignorance of God be burned in the refiner’s fire. Let us return to our original wholeness in the garden here on earth in higher unity consciousness. Let us remember we are made in the image and likeness of God. Let us position ourselves at the still point of creation, with our hearts at the still point of the figure 8, or infinity. Let us remember the upward loop to “beyond the beyond” is balanced with the downward loop to encompass the whole earth and the physical body; the transcendence of God is balanced by the immanence of God. We are whole, free and one with God already. “Already you are filled! Already you have become rich!” (1 Corinthians 4:8). Again, I see the significance of the number 8!!! We are infinite beings, containing the whole already! Remembering and embracing the Spirit of Truth rather than the spirit of error, we can step into this new season of transformation, transmutation and transfiguration. Remember!
Take stock of where you are right now in your life. Allow yourself the experience of a life review. Die before you die to the past, the mis-creations, the negative core beliefs, the limitations, and the “woundology” as Carolyn Myss would say. Let go of your attachment and identification with the things of the past and step into the 40 day season of the space in between, the transition phase where you prepare to return to the original divine blueprint, the original 12 strand DNA of Yeshua, the transfigured, resurrected and ascended body of Christ, and the unity God-consciousness that is our divine inheritance. “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me…when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also” (John 14:1-3). Yeshua is residing in the ascended consciousness of oneness and unity with the Most High. He will come again to you individually to raise you in consciousness to live here on earth in unity consciousness if you believe, have faith, trust, are open and willing.
When Yeshua came to me in 1998, I was raised in consciousness and began to see everything from a new perspective. Yeshua is waiting for each person to say yes; to say I am willing, ready and open to your coming into my heart. I am open and ready to allow your Holy Spirit to come in both fire and water to transform me and bring me to where you are in consciousness. “I will pour out my spirit on all flesh” (Joel 2:28). I am willing to let go of the past and attachment and identification with the world’s beliefs and ways and rise to God-consciousness where Yeshua resides in consciousness. We have to let go to be able to receive the new.
It is time to awaken to the remembrance of all that Yeshua taught. It is time to rise out of the ashes of our old way of life here on earth to the higher thoughts and ways of God (Isaiah 55:8-9). It is time to remember that God is Light, with no darkness at all (1 John 1:5) and God is Love (1 John 4:8). It is time to be perfected in Love (1 John 4:17) and to become the Light. It is time to be and become all we were created to be! Yeshua, as the true Light that entered the world to enlighten all human beings (John 1:9) said “you are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). We are called to receive the Light and Love and become the light and love of God here now on earth. We are to get ready, be open and receptive to be “clothed with the power from on high” (Luke 24:49). Lent is a great time to prepare to be clothed with the Light, Love, Presence and Power of the Most High. Ask Yeshua HaMashiach to remove all obstacles, obstructions and barriers!
“Besides this you know what hour it is, how it is full time now for you to wake from sleep. For salvation/healing is nearer to us now than when we first believed; the night is far gone, the day is at hand. Let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of LIGHT…put on the Lord Yeshua HaMashiach” Romans 13:11-14
“Yet I am writing you a new commandment [Love], which is true in God and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the True Light is already shining” 1 John 1:8
It is time to find the hidden treasure in your heart; the opening to infinity, wholeness, oneness with the Father, and freedom to be the light and love of God in the world. It is time to let your “me” return to ashes and allow our collective We to arise from the ashes for the highest good of all. It is time to remember we are already whole, we are already made in the perfect image and likeness of God, we are already in the garden, and we are already ready to wake up to the truth that we are already divine. Let this Lenten season be a remembering of the truth that Yeshua came to earth to awaken in you. Let this Lenten season be a new experience of remembering your fullness, the immanence of God and your figure eight connection through your heart. Remember the immanence of God in you, as you, and through you to feed a hungry and thirsty world!
Let us make this 40 day transformative season a period of preparation for the full embodiment of the presence of God in each person; a transformation from the circle of life to the mobius, infinite, figure-8 of life with our hearts as the still center point of new creation!!!
