Pan Excerpt

Pan by Walter Crane

I welcome you to join me in this place, this magical time in your life. The energy of Pan is the energy, not of Mother Earth as a Global Being, but of that which rests upon Her. That which you may call the Garden of Eden, this beautiful library that is made up of all of life, all of the great diversity of what Creator has allowed to be and blossom upon this planet. For, as Pan, I represent that energy of naturalness, that energy of the heart expressed through love of the growing things, of the creatures, of Nature and of all the magic, and of all the blessings that Nature has brought to this planet so that it is not as in the ones that no longer have atmosphere. It is a living energy that is extremely potent and that expands in vibration to encompass all life, not just on this planet but in this solar system and all the Universe.

For this energy of Life is the greatest gift of the Creator for each one and for all of this expansion of consciousness that is being allowed now to reach into New Dimensions and new spaces of Being. For this life  energy is the energy that is the energy too, of what you call Free Will, of the ability to be here fully present and engage from that space of your own individuality with all of life, because there is no limitation on your ability to communicate with all the creatures and with all aspects of life, be it the creatures or the plants or trees, be it the breeze or the stars or the moon at the changes of season, all of the magical arenas that surround you on this beautiful planet.

For this planet was always intended to be a Garden of Eden and it is now time in the evolution of your planet and of Humanity on your planet that you are engaged in what you might call the final battle for Life, the final battle that has long been won, to allow life to flourish once again in freedom, in peace, in harmony and in the way that within your own heart there has been a longing, ever since you can remember, for the waters to be pure again and the air, and for people to be happy, for people to live a life filled with joy and celebration; for this is possible, it is not a pipe dream. It is not just an Illusion. We have asked you to examine your own Illusions, to look at those things that you postulate would make you happy if only if you had them, or felt them, or were them.

And so it is important on this journey that we have embarked upon together that you allow yourself to continue this process of examining everything, because it is necessary, at this time especially, for each one of you to uncover that place of Truth, that which is called the Inner Truth, that place of knowing, that place of being, where everything is able to be penetrated, with an understanding that comes through the heart rather than the mind. For as we have said many times “The heart knows it all.” It is in fact within, within the heart that you have your answers; it is in the heart that you understand and know the interconnectedness of all life and are therefore able to celebrate. It is also within the heart that you have that place of softness, that place  where there is perhaps a deep sense of loss or a deep sense of some kind of energy of deep sadness, or perhaps there is great rage, because of the injustices that have been laid upon you, not through your own reason or cause, because you were born into a particular situation or because you have accumulated these times from the past that have come up for you now to clear, to deal with, and to rectify or to resolve.

For this time, is the time of facing everything that you are not complete with, it is necessary to find resolution within your own personal life, because every step that you take personally becomes, as is said, a great giant leap for mankind, or humankind rather. Because each spirit, each soul, as it is able to penetrate through the illusion that one has created for one’s own sense of safety; as you penetrate through this veil, you contribute to the greater truth that surrounds you; to be able to penetrate through the deceptions that are placed upon you and that run many of the lives of those around you and perhaps generates a certain amount of fear within your own person. That actually is an aspect of the challenges that you must meet every day in some manner, because you are human, not because you’ve done anything wrong, not because you are fated, or there is something that is missing in the fullness of who you truly are.

This is an excerpt from the New Earth Council,  Voice #4 given on 6th September, 2020

John Henry, Excerpt

We would like to focus on what it requires of you to live with your heart open. What does it take to live and move into the heart from the head? Essentially, all the words are nice and they’re all nice admonishments, and they’re all great ideas. But if they remain in the mind, in the head, they do not shift your reality. So, it is important to recognize that the shift of focus, of location, is a major first step of going to the heart by putting your hands, whether it is actual or in your imagination, upon your heart. By focusing your energy and attention to your heart, you immediately invoke a space of connection with that higher energy of your Higher Self and your wisdom that dwells within your heart. There is an innate connection between all humans that we call the Heart Thread, and when you go into the heart, you have that ability to connect with others. You also can do it through the connection with the Soul Seed just below your heart, in that space where the ribs come together, there behind the xyphoid process. Within that space of going into the heart you can communicate with the Soul of somebody you are having difficulty with, as we have shared before in your questionings.

John Henry

So, the 1st lesson, shall we say, of accessing the heart is focusing there. And the best way to do it is to go there with a deep breath, because if you now will join me in taking a deep breath, of in……. and out………. You will immediately notice that the whole system relaxes. Somehow, there’s a little bit of that stress, of that stuff of the shoulders, tension, that relaxes. There’s an influx of a little bit of that stillness. There is also an experience of your diaphragm moving outwards and back in, of your chest rising, of the sensation of your physical body, and that you, through the breath, are connected for that moment with your physical form. When you combine this with a sense of grounding, with a sense of feeling that you are connected to Mother Earth, rooted through your feet or through some way of seeing yourself upon Mother Earth or within Her, you are becoming present.

  In order to be in the heart, you must be in your body because the heart is the main monitor of all the processes of your body. Your heart has more connecting points and has control of more hormones and more neural pathways within your system than the brain does. The heart and the brain, however, function together as partners with the body, with the emotions, with the Spirit, the mind, the Soul. All of these aspects are all actually one interconnected whole. So when you access that quantum field of your heart, whether it be through the breath in your body or a thought directed from your mind to do so, or perhaps what we like to share with you, through a mantra, some form of repetitive use of word, phrase or image that immediately takes you to your heart; whatever it be for you in your culture or your spiritual upbringing, that creates that connection with a deeper sense of your connection with the Divine Aspect of who you are, with your Spirit or Source.

  There are many ways for you to focus on going into the heart. One other beautiful way is to think of something in your memory that brought you great joy and a great sense of warmth within your system, where your heart felt open and soft and vulnerable and there was perhaps a sense of a Golden Glow around an experience or person or an exchange or communication or a great love. When you think of this, your heart opens. Your mind goes into a space of kind of a neutral, of connecting with that beautiful gold that we have shared with you at the beginning, that we pour into our system and surround ourselves with. This is because it is a reflection of the energy and the blessing and love of all the Guides and Holy Beings that surround you (and surround us here, right now) that are part of your Presence. They are dwelling within your heart. You have become used to externalizing everything and putting it outside of yourself, whereas in fact, everything is within, and the heart energy is an energy of ‘within.’ So, as you take that breath, as you say that mantra, your mind goes quiet and the heart opens and then, perhaps, you can let go of some of the armor or the walls you have placed around you to keep you safe.

This excerpt is from John Henry, the 5th “Voice” of the 12 “members” of the New Earth Council and part of the series of Messages and questions and answers, that are being transcribed and will become a book. This message was given September 13th, 2020. For excerpts from the first 3 Voices, see below for the previous blog posts or visit the Archives.

Apollo, Excerpt

Apollo was the third Voice of the 12 from the New Earth Council. Here is an extract of the message from Apollo

ApolloWe want you to experience this in the same way that you experienced the warmth of the Sun’s rays upon your skin. We are asking you to feel that they are expressions too of God’s love, filling all space, filling all time, going backwards into every single life of yours (if you want to see it from a linear perspective or if you see it as a parallel perspective). All of your lifetimes, all of your experiences in any dimension are now being filled with beautiful rays of God’s love. We are asking you to take a nice breath and allow yourself to feel it in your body, in your heart, in your mind. Do not try to make sense. Just feel it. Every day, when you do your practice, ask to feel this love. Express it through your actions, your words, thoughts, your feelings. Transform everything that is not love into this beautiful, magnificent warmth, this golden Light and energy. That is one way of seeing and feeling that which you are, for within this beautiful radiance of God’s love, you are all melting into each other. And as you do this, you melt everyone into the same vibration of Oneness.

You are here to establish these structures. They are structures of Oneness. They are structures of the energy of coming together, of resolution, of finding ways to live in peace and harmony, in cooperation; of letting go of that struggle for survival, that struggle that requires you to think in terms of competition, in terms of scarcity, of limitation, in terms of seeing yourself as in any way limited, in any way diminished. For you cannot diminish God’s love and you are it. You are it! The Buck stops with you! You have to be God’s love in action, in motion, in expression, because that’s what you are. This is beyond the illusions. For everything that is not God’s love is the illusion. It is a long stretch perhaps for your mind, but your heart knows how easy this step is and your heart will now direct your and instruct you as to how to proceed to dismantle the illusions, to dismantle the belief systems that have not worked, that have created separation, dissension. They have created an idea that there are others that are to be feared. Each Human Being, no matter how dark their experience, has this connection with God’s love. Within their heart is the spark, that same Sun, Solar Logos energy within the heart of each Being that has consciousness; because it is the nature of your consciousness as a human that God’s love, that that spark of Divine Fire that you are, is there embedded in your very center.

It is written in your Bible that you were created in the image of God. What is more so, is that man, especially, that Human has created God in the image of “Man;” and this is perhaps the greatest illusion of all, for it hides many truths that are hidden in the annals of all of your so called, teachings, of your sacred works. Only that which is of the heart is sustainable, as we have said before. Only that which resonates with Oneness is allowable any longer for you who are on this path of the Spiritual Warrior. Only love, only Light is your Reality now. Each time anything else pops up in your mind, each time a voice from the past, from your father, your mother, your peers, your teachers, that says you are not good enough, that you can’t, that you do not deserve, that you are too small, too large, too old, too fat, too skinny, too whatever; that you take these concepts and you throw them away and you do not allow them to occupy your mind.

Breath

Yesterday morning, instead of receiving a personal message, this is what came through with a request to share it, especially in view of the fact that many seem to be experiencing challenges in some area of their lives currently. So enjoy. There is no name attached to it, perhaps it is from one who calls himself “Old Chinese”:

Breath

It is time for Humanity to look within. The human heart carries all the secrets, all the messages that people need to know about themselves, their path in life, who they really are and what they have come here for. The human heart, not some divine, timeless, spiritual space of worship or devotion or adulation, not some priestess or channel or god being, not a guru or a wise mother figure that can shower you with love or give you a hug or a magic touch, but your own human heart. The cells of your heart knew when to start beating before you emerged from your Mother’s womb, before your first breath. They carry the codes, the memories and the lessons; they carry the instructions for who and what you are to be, and have been, and they carry the information of your lineage, personal and collective, of everything it required to assemble stardust and spirit into the unique being that Mother Earth was able to fashion, so that you could be here now in this place and in this time. Those first cells of your heart imparted to every cell of your body and every atom and molecule that makes up your DNA and your cellular structure, the instructions, the direction and the knowledge of how a star being from the distant galaxies, from the Earth’s oceans and dirt was able to form itself into a human being with the genetic make up of your parents and ancestors so that you, yourself, could be.

Your inner world of biology, your inner world of consciousness, of attention, of breath and of focus is your doorway to all the answers you seek, to the why and how of your life, to the feelings that dominate and control you, to the longings and pain, to the aches and losses, to the hunger and misery and suffering you are carrying from your ancestors and to the joy and celebration of freedom, of unity and harmony – to the peace you so long for in your personal life and in what you see around you on this beautiful golden planet that is so unique in the Universe.

The lessons you are learning are only lessons; for even as you are all these wonderful things in the framework of your human biological and mental, intellectual and psychic structure, so you are also the timeless, immortal and universal spirit that inhabits each cell, the infinite eternality of spirit entering form – the great mystery of who you are, the great mystery of All That Is, that you call God, that you see as the divine – as you see, feel and experience as outside of you, as Jesus or Mary or Buddha or some other Great Being that you pray to or put on a pedestal, attach wings to and ask for help or guidance from

Look to your own wings, to your own source of the great mystery, for truly, I tell you, there is no greater mystery than that which dwells in your own cells, in the memory of who you have been, and what you are and who you have determined to become. This mystery that is written in the stars, is inscribed in your very own DNA. Each strand carries untold treasure and story and reality.

Spiral in and then spiral back out and recognize that the center of the spiral, the one doing the spiraling, is who you truly are.

Your breath loves your body. Your body loves your breath. They are inseparable. For those of you who say “yes, we have been told over and over about this thing you are sharing with us about the answers being within, that God or Jesus or Buddha, or whomever we look to as being our great shining light – as being within – as being the answer, but I don’t FEEL it. I don’t KNOW it; it is just a concept, an intellectual exercise” – the breath is the doorway. You cannot enter the kingdom with the mind and you cannot access the heart without the body. They are all intertwined. heartbodymind all exist within the breath. The breath feeds the body, the body feeds the mind, and the heart feeds the brain, which feeds the heart. There is a symbiosis, an interconnectedness that reaches out beyond the physicality to encompass all life, for all life is bodymind and is connected through the in and out of breath – the heart pumping life force, renewing the old, stale energy with the living spirit that animates the fullness of life and allows the brainmind to think and the bodymindbrainheart to create all the wonderful tools and technologies and poetry from words and building blocks of matter. The mystery of who you are is so vast and intricate, it cannot be grasped by the intellect, even in millions of lives, but it can be felt by one heart in, one now moment, for it is also simple and pure and innocent and exists in the imagination, in the child’s curiosity and in the world of play.

Consider the breath for a moment; Like the tide, it flows, it comes and goes; it is never still, always moving in and out, one wave after the other, some big, crashing waves, and then the sucking of the undertow gathering its forces for the next wave and sometimes a gentle swell, and then the water washes the shore and fills the tide-pools and the holes where the clams and mussels breathe. And so too, the breath comes and goes, and as you sit and breathe, and feel, perhaps sadness or anger or frustration with your challenge, with your health or financial or relationship issue, there is an understanding that each breath you take, as you hold that thought with the breath, it must be released with the out-breath, and then the next in-breath is a new one, a different one and you cannot re-breathe the last breath you just released, for it has gone, like a million breaths before it, it came and it went. And there will be another breath in a year’s time that will carry a different thought, a different character, a different feeling, but right now, this breath that we breathe is unique. It exists only in the moment and I can choose to attach whatever thought or feeling I wish to it, and as it becomes complete, I will breathe out and then, there will be another opportunity for another breath, and I can attach to it whatever thought, feeling or moment of attention I please. I have the freedom to breathe my own breath and to feel what I now choose to feel and think, what I now wish and choose to think as I breathe in that breath; and as sure as night follows day and the day follows night, I can watch that breath release, feel the air leave my body and feel the new breath coming in. And who am I? I am the one who breathes, I am the one who watches, who chooses, who thinks and feels, breathing in and releasing out. My existence depends on this action of breathing in and releasing. My body, my brain, my heart, all are partaking of this process and are all feeding each other. My mind is the fluid energy of in and out and watching, feeling, thinking, being. And they are all connected to this great mystery of existence that has some kind of spirit attached to them. And perhaps, when the process stops, there will be nothing, and perhaps that spirit continues without the process. I will find out, or I won’t. It does not matter. Right now, what does matter, is that I am breathing in and out and there is a choice for me as to what thought and emotion I attach to the breath. And it is all within that this process happens. There may be answers within that arise, and when they do, it is that “still small voice” that I now pay attention to.

You have heard the terms “There is only Love” or “there is only God”. Forget about that. These are concepts. There is only breath. As far as you, I, we are concerned, that is the only truth you need. Everything rises and falls within the moments of breath. Life exists in breath.

May the Living Spirit that is within all life be present in each breath you breathe, and bring you peace.
