Message from the Meet The Guides Alternate Tuesday sessions
The Druid was the 8th Voice of the New Earth Council from October 4th, 2020
“You are here at this time, preparing to become teachers, to become wisdom keepers and guides and elders, to become channels of this Light, of these messages. Channeling is not some special thing that belongs only to those few. It is part of the natural evolution of your soul as it grows and you start to get the wisdom through your intuition, in the moment. As you allow yourself the confidence to trust in your own wisdom, your own guidance, there becomes less and less of a differentiation between your higher self and all of us, we 12 or we 144 or the 144,000, or whatever it be. The wisdom dwells within your own heart, within your own sacred intelligence that is within each cell of your body, within each cell of your consciousness, within the ancient memory that is within your DNA, within the 12 strands that now are coming forth and expanding out.
The wisdom teachings that were written down and were distorted are now becoming clear and being rectified, being realigned with the sacred teachings of the Elders, of the ancient ones. This truth is accessible within your heart, so that what you teach the young ones, the stories, the songs, becomes part of their unfolding, so that they will remember with deep love and cherishment as they go on to become the teachers. They will remember that you sang them to sleep and told them stories and read them the story books that you were brought up with, that thread of connection to the magic of fantasy, the magic of imagination, the grandness of the adventure, of the hero and the heroine. All of these things get lost within your computer world, within your Zooms and your technology and it is important for you to go back to some degree to books, to reading, to pictures, to showing an image on a piece of paper instead of pixels on a screen, to reading stories and encouraging your children to write; to write their stories, their poems, to write their wisdom. For the little ones carry the memory of all of their lifetimes. They carry the memory of the wisdom that they came here with, and as you discuss with them “What was it like in your last life?” or “What do you think about what’s going on with this one or that one?” You ask them to let their wisdom come forward. Even the youngest ones have great memories, even if they are not yet fully able to comprehend with their minds in the logical, linear ways. They have a way of expressing their truth and there’s much in them that would teach you. You are the teachers and the students of each other.
And just as with the Druids, there was much that was taught through the word of mouth. The Bards were a sect, you might say, a very special aspect of Druid culture that had to study, that had to become an initiate in the secret teachings; for when they sang their songs in the castles of the rich with their harps upon their backs, traveling from one lord to another, telling the stories, singing the songs, they were the carriers of the history of the time. They brought the wisdom. They brought the news, and it was important for them to encapsulate secret teachings within the stories. And so, their training was arduous and they were bound by a strict oath to observe secrecy, to be true to their order. They were the wise ones and they were the ones who gathered around in the circles and led the people. The people were always led by the circles of the Elders, by the wisdom of the Sages because the accumulated wisdom of the tribe, of the village, of the group was sacred and carried only the truth and did not allow the lies to penetrate. That was why it was important to be so vigilant and to only create the imprints, the conditioning to become, shall we say, good citizens of the soul, for the society in which these conditioned imprints and teachings were intended so that people may live together in harmony, honoring and respecting each other, honoring boundaries, honoring ‘yes’ and honoring ‘no,’ learning the truth of who they are and what their purpose was. Who was to be a warrior and who was to be a sage, who was to be the Bard and who was to cultivate the soil for the people?
And always there was the sacred marriage, there was the time of the fructification of Mother Earth at the Beltane, honoring the life force energies of Mother Earth and honoring the times of the going within in the Winter, the sitting around the fires, sharing the stories, the wisdom, sharing the laughter and the food that had been gathered and prepared for the Winter. Life was simple and yet it was fragile, for the world of Nature is a powerful world and the world of man was a very frightening world too, because not all honored the sacred trust of the heart and the recognition of equality and of harmony and peace. There were those who were hungry for power, who wielded the sword and used control and it was necessary to learn how to navigate within this world.”
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.
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.
