2023 will offer us the opportunity to set ourselves free from the misaligned reality that is not in harmony with who we are fully becoming.
This is the year we remember that we do not need to be freed, saved, or fixed by anyone or anything.
This is the year we remember that we are actually the freer and liberator, and that the only thing we are here to free and liberate is our mind, from the illusion that it needs to believe every thought it has about itself and the world.
What if the thoughts your mind chooses to identify with are just thoughts, and have nothing to do with who you really are?
What if who you are at your core is someone who is already free, and much greater than any thought their mind chooses to identify with?
Your Core Self, which is your Spirit Self, has been and always will be free.
The mind may not be comfortable with embracing the vastness that comes with knowing you are already free, because the mind has been conditioned to thrive within the self-protective parameters of control and safety.
The key to setting the mind free is to gently show it how to find comfort and safety through the daily acknowledgment of your Core Self / Spirit Self. Creating space for your Core / Spirit Self to become more present for the mind, will allow the mind to build trust in you.
When we find ways to affirm for the mind that it is not losing anything by embracing and working harmoniously together with our Core Self, but rather showing it how valuable this can be, we free it to embrace its true role.
As we enter the New Year, let’s reflect on whether or not we are allowing ourselves to be free in all ways.
Are we allowing ourselves to shine brightly? Are we speaking our truth fully?
Are we embracing and sharing all of our gifts, talents, and presence with the world, the way we truly desire?
Are we taking time to love, pamper, and nurture ourselves and others often?
Are we setting aside time each day to allow our mind to be fully acknowledge our Core Self / Spirit, the way our Spirit already loves and acknowledges our mind?
Are we expressing heartfelt gratitude for our blessings?
If you answered yes to these questions, then you are most likely already experiencing a great freedom in your life.
If for any reason you are still struggling with connecting to the vibration and experience of freedom, know that it’s just feedback, to remind you that your mind desires to receive Love, acknowledgement, and support from you.
The Divine Feminine Heals
The resistance we are still seeing play out in the world right now is a residual from the collective mind of humanity. That collective mind still makes survival a bigger priority than being in the vibration of Love and remembering our Divine nature.
This is due to humanity having long ago unconsciously agreed to build a system based on separation, lack, hierarchy, and control.
Humanity created that form of life to learn what inner growth we might gain by living in a survival-based society.
For thousands of years, this system served as humanity’s default setting, giving us lots of important feedback as to what we as whole, sovereign beings do and do not desire to create more of.
Now this survival system is reaching its expiration date, and cannot continue the way it has much longer. That’s why we are seeing such chaos everywhere.
Because this old structure has been the world’s default system for so long, as the collective ego-mind senses great change, it’s doing all it can to hold onto the survival-based methods it depends upon.
Remember, the ego-mind thinks it’s doing the right thing by holding tight to what it’s always believed it needs to stay safe and protected.
Many are now increasingly realizing that living in survival mode all of the time is harder than ever.
Yet most are still unsure as to how to make the leap from the old coping habits of control, lack, and fear, to ways of being that reflect an empowered state of awareness, where freedom reigns supreme, with respect for all life through fairness, peace, compassion, and Love.
As we move into 2023 and beyond, one of the most important roles of the Divine Feminine is to help humanity move beyond the miscreations of the unconscious Masculine, which long ago forgot its Divine nature.
For eons of time in third dimensional reality, humanity was influenced primarily by the aspect of the Masculine that had separated from its Divine source.
What has remained, is the aspect of the Masculine energy that represents the illusions of control and survival.
It’s quite clear that this aspect of the Masculine that long ago forgot its Divinity is trying hard now, exerting a big push to keep its controlling grip on humanity.
This can easily be seen in many branches and sects of religious organizations, governments, and corporations that rely heavily on fear to promote their agenda.
It’s through the Divine Feminine that this unconscious Divine aspect of Masculine energy will heal and return to its patterns of pure perfection.
It’s through the Divine Feminine that the Divine Masculine will return to our Earth life experience.
The Divine Feminine represents Divine Love.
The Divine Masculine represents Divine Action.
Together, they are invincible, and create Universes that support all unconditionally.
Divine Love is the most powerful energy in all of existence. It’s where everything comes from. It’s the sacred heart and womb from which everything is birthed.
Divine Love knows no judgment. It only knows wholeness and completion.
Divine Love expressed, is compassion.
For eons of time, humanity was led to believe (through fear- and control-based teachings) that the Source/God of all existence was a man—a temperamental male figure who lived up in the sky somewhere and passed judgment on everything.
This type of conditioning has perfectly fueled the fear-and-survival patterns that led humanity to give its power away to a select few.
But now, something tremendous is happening.
The fear bubble of humanity is popping, and the collective mind (though scrambling a bit) is now able to receive the nourishing Love of the Divine Feminine.
This is allowing the part of Masculine energy that has ignored its Divinity to finally heal, and to remember its Divinity once again, within all of humanity.
For the many who have been steeped in fear-and-survival patterns, there is a learning curve taking place, as they adjust to a new way of being that is in line with their I AM presence/Spirit self—their Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine aspects.
As some are finding it challenging to transcend their old fear-and-survival patterns, it’s important for us to give them the space to integrate and to heal.
When fear no longer has a hold over the consciousness of humanity, we become free.
We can contribute to the healing of the Masculine, so that we can set ourselves free from its old paradigms.
We can do this by choosing to be a compassionate presence for ourselves and for humanity as a whole, as we all adjust to the changes that are shifting us out of the old, fear-based patterns.
Compassion is the ability to observe someone’s resistance to change, without judging that stance, or trying to fix or save it.
From this space of compassion, we can embody and express unconditional Love for ourselves and humanity.
When we and humanity receive deep and nourishing Love through compassion, we see that the collective mind and our own minds are much less likely to resist the healing and transformation happening now.
Through compassion, we can support the Divine Feminine as She heals the aspect of Masculine energy that once chose to forsake the beautiful Divinity it is a part of.
A Strengthened Intuition
One of the many gifts the Divine Feminine offers us is the gift of intuition. In 2023 and beyond, our connection to our intuition will strengthen.
Our intuition works closely with the right hemisphere of the brain and the high heart, offering us insights that bypass the confines of left-brain logic and reasoning.
Our intuition is our natural inner Knowing. It transcends mental intellect and connects us to the wisdom of the heart. It is the voice of our Spirit.
Our intuition speaks to us constantly, whether the mind chooses to be aware of it or not. It is always guiding us in the direction of our highest path, and nudging us toward greater expansion, so we can live the greatest version of our life in this fast-changing reality.
During 2023 and beyond, we will be given many opportunities to strengthen our intuitive gifts. We will also feel a stronger pull to feed ourselves spiritually.
All that is asked of us, is that we be mindful about staying present. This will allow us to be open and available to the insights and intuitive nudges that will help us gently move into the next phase of our personal and collective journey.
By having a strong connection to our intuition, we empower every aspect of our lives.
The more we listen to and honor our intuitive gifts, the more aligned we are to creating a life of fulfillment, joy, Love, peace, prosperity, freedom, and well-being.
