Traversing Life’s Abyss, The Soul’s Alchemical Journey

The abyss may seem foreboding, but don’t let it stop you from your growth.

As we wander through hell, we catch glimpses of Heaven. Keep your eye on Heaven and the rocky paths will be easier to navigate.

Please do not send me replies worrying about me. I am an open book. When I struggle, I share it so that others can know there is a way out of the valley. I traverse valleys and know there are paths that lead out. However, those paths are not always easy to find. Sometimes we need help and want to ask for help, but others act like they’ve never traversed a valley. So, some of us  travel through alone, often taking longer than would be necessary if we had support or we never find our way out. That’s the tragedy of not recognizing ourselves in each other.

Traversing a valley, an abyss, means this, your Soul is giving you a great opportunity for growth and change. You are being invited to pull off old skin, and it can be a very painful process. Why do you think so many run from it? You see all these folks doing so much in the community and in the world, but really, they are in deep pain. They’re just wearing a mask and are afraid of traversing the abyss. So, they hide. They hide and make you feel as though you are alone in your sorrow. NO! You are in good company. This is a time of Soul awakening! It’s not personal. We’re all being tugged in some aspect of our lives, whether we admit it out loud or not.

The Soulwork connected to traversing the abyss, walking through the valley allows you the opportunity to

Thirsting on the Path

release false belief systems, useless habits and relationships. The valley has food, even if it doesn’t taste good.

I know this because I know valleys. In the past year and a half, my path has been arduous. It’s been a most humbling and revealing experience. I thought it was depression, and some of it was, but mostly, it was that I was going through great inner transformation, and was trying hard to control the process. I felt my skin coming off in front of people. I was dying, but it was an egoic death, the death of choice.  I was being made anew in the midst of intense personal and life challenges obstructing my path. The challenges came in many forms, deathsof Loved ones, great illnesses of Loved ones, financial pitfalls, and my own illness from exhaustion and need for change. I was given little time between the challenges to even catch my breath. Though I knew it was a necessity if I was to fulfill my Soul purpose here, I tried to control it, take it in small doses. Haha, that never works when the call is complete transformation.  My Soul has always been very important to me, and it was time to liberate myself from old ways of being in the world. The alchemical fire was raging and my Soul’s longing for its fullness would not be denied. It was simply my time for tremendous growth, ready or not.

Through traversing the valleys, the abysses of life, I have learned that there are clusters of light in the darkest of places. It has taken remarkable courage and patience for me to walk through, trod through, crawl through the valley, especially this time. This journey has been a deep, painful and magnificent journey for the evolution of my Soul.

Life for all of us is rapidly changing and to get through this time, our feet need to be firmly grounded in Divinity. Otherwise, we will not only misinterpret our challenges, we will succumb to them. When you traverse the abyss, when you step deeply into yourself, quiet and center yourself, you avail yourself to receive the guidance and teachings of the Masters. You are reminded of who you truly are and your purpose becomes clearer. You will realize that you are allied with others who are also traveling the path of the Soul. As soon as you make the intention to be successful in this journey, your intention harmonizes with Divine Intention, and your most urgent needs are met in ways you couldn’t have imagined.

Your Soul journey may be arduous, but you will come out aglow, liberating your soul and removing calcification around your heart that have prevented you from fully embracing your life’s potential. You will see yourself clearly, flaws and all, and Love yourself even more, because instead of being ashamed of your flaws, you realize they are necessary for your life journey. You realize that your flaws are not who you are, but what you pass through. You can still Love yourself and have flaws. They tell you what needs attention, what needs changing. They are not meant to cripple your journey, but to give you information.

It’s the alchemy of the Soul to wander in darkness and find light. Finding yourself is the outcome.  “Know thy Self” and to thy own self be true. From there your compassion, Love and respect for all life will be contagious to those around you by vibration alone.

In these times of great emotional stress and turmoil, we get to learn what is truly valuable within ourselves. We get to know who we truly are and release those things that do not speak of our Divine nature. We get to know Divine Grace and become one with it.

No, this is not a journey for the weak of heart, but your soul longs for this path. Like the Masters of Life, BuddhaKrishna, Yeshu‘a, known as Jesus the ChristMary Magdalene, Mary, Mother of Yeshu’a, and many more whose names are unknown to us, we all have our days in the desert. Let courage accompany your journey. Your heart will strengthen and your Soul will evolve. What greater gifts can you realize? The glitter of the outer world will no longer call you to respond in want, but to realize it as glitter and what is truly of value in life will no longer elude you.

This is our time, y’all. Unite in the Spirit of Divine Change and Transformation. The earth is excreting its bowels and the worst in human nature has and will continue to be revealed. Revel in Life’s beauty. We will hear awful news, and still know, we are in transformational times. The world is on evolution. The worst and the best will convergence in harmony.

We are living in a time of great and potent cleansing, and it requires patience, forgiveness and Love  to withstand it. We are ALL in this together. We become the change we want for the world as we brave the alchemical fire that turns us into Divinity’s precious jewels. RISE EMPOWERED!

Children Learn Kindness by Our Example

This touching video demonstrates how a physically disabled boy’s determination to run a race  inspired others with insurmountable his tenacity, determination and perseverance.  It reminds me how very vulnerable our children are to the examples set in front of them. When they see kindness, they react with kindness. When they are in healthy environments, they learn the importance of kindness and respect of others. If children witness violence, chronically unstable emotional behavior, like a sponge, they imitate it.

There’s an age-old adage, “children learn from example.” It now seems so passé. Nowadays, children are not well shielded, and are exposed to things that would overwhelm adults. Even when parents are conscious of the importance of protecting their children and living lives they can model, there are too many examples that challenge good home training.

I love this video’s demonstration of the workings of a powerful pied piper who unwittingly aroused and amassed great compassionate and support from one adult and an excited group of children. Matt W. exhibits great determination as he runs a race with legs that can’t go fast, and even run unsteadily at times.

When Matt had been running for a while, showed brief signs of tiring in his stride, a man with unassuming generosity took initiative to walk alongside Matt as a walking support. Still, even when he seemed to slow down in exhaustion, Matt would draw from his apparently indomitable spirit and will, and return his stride toward the finish line, never veering off the track. Pied Piper Matt did not let his disability disable him from a race he no doubt have lost, but, winning the race, by being the first to cross the finish line, was not Matt’s objective. Matt’s objective was to complete the race. He won the race because he completed it. He not only won the race, his act of courage and tenacity inspired every other child around him to follow the pied piper to the goal of reaching the finish line. That made them all winners! Who said there can only be one winner in a race? This race was a win for everyone on the sidelines, too, all the joyous cheerleaders, and especially, for Matt’s mom. The pied piper led his followers to what was common in them all, to feel Love.

Altogether, a potent flow of good has been created from a moment in time, in less than 5 minutes. Sometimes an act of kindness is as simple as showing up.

Pied Piper Matt W. is amazing and the  coach, who gave Matt that moral support he needed, inspired the other children to do the same. Look how excited those children were for Matt to complete the race!  It seemed to mean as much to them as it did to Matt! Long live community spirit! Let’s get more of these stories in mainstream news.

We are witnessing too many random acts of violence among children and youths. They did not make up violence, but found way to it by example. Violence has become trendy.  The mindset to settle the score violently has become contagious, epidemic. This video demonstrates how a random act of kindness can also become contagious. We can help it become epidemic.

I firmly believe that we, you and I, are charged with becoming pied pipers for powerful, positive change for the world, one random act of kindness at a time, enlisting our children as our followers. What’s your random act of kindness for today? I know  you don’t want to stop with just one; however, one random act of kindness a day is a great place to start.

Thanks for the reminder, Pied Piper Matt W. You’re awesome! All I know is I want to be like you when I grow up! , And, by the way, your schoolmates ROCK! Boy Inspires Kids – Kids Inspire Boy
