Honestly I'm not sure where this post is going to go... could be a rant, could be an AHA, could be filled with vignettes of stories... it could...
As we have flipped well into the third quarter of 2017 and are now flirting with the last, allow me to remind you that waaay back almost one year ago The Gang dubbed 2017 as The Year of Transparency.
Much has happened energetically in the past two months; Mary Magdalene's Feast Day getting more notice with a channeled post from me, two lunar eclipses compounded with a new and full moon, mercury dancing in retrograde (which seems to be wreaking havoc across the board regarding communication) and let us not forget the biggest event, the total solar eclipse.
Things got fluffed up.
To dance more in the Land of Woo, Doreen Virtue's video announcement that she is walking away from much of what she taught for decades has many tongues a waggin'. This is not a Doreen Bashing Event (there's plenty of that going around), but perhaps better understand that this is The Act of Transparency in action. She is on her human path. She resonates with what she now believes to be real. Is she correct? Who knows, but for her, it makes sense and that is important for her journey. Transparency. If you aren't sure to what event I'm talking about, I can't share the source for her video; it has been removed from YouTube. Bottom line, she's rebranding her beliefs and has openly walked away from much of what she used to teach.
She's human and allowed this change... we are ALL about evolving and walking our truest path. It's how we address and share it that differs from person to person. How we tend to those that follow us (no matter how big or small the following) and how we are currently supporting them.
Take me as an example, as many of you know, The Course launched fully this year. The lessons are targeted to work up the chakra system; Sandalphon, Uriel, Gabriel, etc. This helps students to be more grounded as they delve into higher resonating energies. So Uriel is in italics for apparently he decided to go AAWOL (Absent Angel Without Leave) for several weeks. Some students were two or three lessons past him when he finally decided to emerge. Oh dear... I called it what it was... a mistake on my end (have to own it for I'm the one reading homework and sending out next) .. I couldn't even blame Mercury - for this has been going on for weeks!
Shake head while hanging head moment ensued ...
I strive to be a leader. I strive to be Mary Poppins (yeah yeah yeah I know even she isn't perfect, but please don't pop my bubble). Eh, life happens. But how FUNNY that Uriel, The Angel of Safety is the one who decided to hide....
You Are Safe To BE You
What better message in relation to transparency? BE you. All may not 'get you' but it's not your job to appeal or even be understood by all. It's your job to BE. Remember, there are always many sides to every story. It is up to you to take with you what jives. Perhaps argue with what doesn't, but perhaps prior to arguing, ask why is this pushing my buttons? Within the answers to that question will lie your truth.
Nobody ever said BEing transparent was going to be an easy feat. If that were the case, there would be no broken hearts, no wars, no fear of war, etc. for all would be be speaking their truth. When truth is spoken, it does not come from ego (the birthplace of fear), but from love.
For what is love?
It is the truth.
