Shifts in the Matrix we live in

Shifts in the Matrix we live in
As I have mentioned before, I always ask my spirit guides what we should write about when I prepare to send out a newsletter, so here it is.

Like many of you, my schedule has been upended with the lockdown and now the reopening because of the differences in dates. I am in Boulder County which reopens on May 8 for small businesses, but Weld County and Larimer Counties, which are just to the north and east of me are are open this week.

The energetic shifts we are all facing are about a shift in the whole matrix we live in. Some of the changes we are living in are obvious and some are subtle, and all are powerful.

Among the changes that have presented difficulties may also prove rewarding, of course, depending on your experience. For example, many family members are spending more time together and this can be a bonding, strengthening experience.

Many people are eating more home cooking rather than fast food, which may introduce more conscious attitudes about eating. I myself have always been an omnivore, however, the shut down of some meat packing plants may cause us to be vegetarians for a while. I am fine with that. Conditions in meat packing plants need to be improved, and I can be happy being more vegetarian for a while.

In fact I have shifted that habit for quite a while now. I used to eat bacon and eggs and toast for breakfast as a real regular thing, but these days I make protein shakes with fruits and veggies for breakfast, and that works well for me. Eating more salads too and getting protein from other sources like peanut butter. So I am not at this point giving up meat, but eating less of it and more plants. Have any of you changed your habits recently?

For some of us, even though a shortage of meat may not be a free will choice in our eating habits, we might find that we like it, and keep some of these changes. Have any of you noticed who you are keeping in touch with during this strange time? Out of all the people you know, who are the ones you are connecting with more?

What I notice is that some of you who reach out are ones that I did not know would feel like that, and this shows me that some times there is a real heart connection that is deeper than we initially recognized. Have you noticed that too?

Since it is my daily habit to express gratitude for this day and for everyone spirit sends to me, I am grateful to all of you. I always do what I do for all of you with the assistance of my spirit guides, so I always focus my full attention on doing the best for you. So it is all positive and good energy connections. And yet, I find a special spiritual connection with all of you who keep in touch.

There is a lot of healing communicated in these exchanges, whether it is a call or email just to say hello or keep in touch or for a reading or spiritual counseling, there is a lot of healing needed because of this unusual situation we are all living with and the times we are in.

Much is being revealed right now about the matrix we live in and the truth is raising our consciousness so that we are seeing and experiencing things differently.

Simple example. My whole life I have loved to read books. My parents got us in the habit of using the public library when we were kids, so it has always been a part of my life both as a form of learning and for entertainment. However, during this lock down, when I sit down to read, I keep feeling my mind pulled to other thoughts, to insights and messages from spirit, and so reading is frequently interrupted. Sometimes I have had trouble sleeping. Others have reported the same sorts of interruptions. Some speculate that it may be the movement of the planets, but I am sensing that it is the shifting of the matrix that is shifting the way we live. So if you are also having trouble concentrating at times, it is because of the spiritual downloads we are getting. Have you experienced this?

Some of the changes in our everyday life will evolve. For example it is normal every day behavior in our life up to now that we often meet with friends to have a meal and conversation in a restaurant, or meet for coffee with a new acquaintance, or go out for drinks at a bar where we enjoy local musicians and dancing.

But these new social distancing rules may radically change the landscape of the whole restaurant and bar industry. Many will not reopen, many will have to operate differently, all depending on what happens next with the rules. So it is both about people getting employed again, and it is also about how we socialize. We do need to get the economy open again and we need to have precautions for taking care of the sick and I think that we will see the next phase quarantine the sick, and the healthy people will get things going again. This is my vision of course. Who knows what rules the various governments will make? Right now we have differences from county to county and city to city.

It is also about developing new habits. Because going for a walk, bike ride, skateboard, and skate are one thing we can do with these rules, I am seeing lots of people out walking too, and generally, everyone I pass says hello, smiles or waves, and sometimes we pause and chat. Perhaps many people who were not doing this much before will adapt this as a new habit that they keep.

I am also remembering that at earlier times in this life, it was common entertainment for many of us to get together to make music and sing in our living rooms. So if we cannot go to concerts, we can get together to make music in our homes so that we still have live music in our lives. If we cannot have big gatherings, we can have small ones. If the new rule for a while is less than 10 people (just speculating on this number) that is a kind of gathering that would fit in a living room. How joyful it would be if that became a new popular entertainment instead of just watching TV? How spiritually uplifting such gatherings would be! And fun!

The picture above is 4 stones that I found objects on my walks. 4 is also the number of this year. Remember, in the January newsletter, I described how this 4 year in numerology would represent building on new foundations? I just didn't know it would look like this.

Always the attraction for heart shaped stones which remind us of how important love is, and then other common stones that call to me and have a good feel to them when I hold them in my hand. Polished stones are beautiful and lots of healers like to use them, however, I always feel that found objects and common stones are just as good a medium to use for healing and meditation.

Fear and convenience has record numbers of people shopping online now, and no doubt will be a permanent shift for some people. However, it is human nature to want to connect with other people, so people will want to return to shopping in person just like we all appreciate personal services from others like our hair dressers, barbers, massage therapists, tatoo artists, chiropractors, mani & pedi artists as well as doctors and dentists.

The quarantine brings with it loneliness which is difficult for a lot of people. Although Zoom and Skype work great, they are only a substitute for not being able to meet in person.

I love all of you and I am always happy to hear from any of you.

I have one request for someone else, if one of you would like to help. I know a reiki healer who needs a massage table so that she can open for business when the restrictions are lifted. If you have a table that you would like to let go of, we can help a good healer get her practice going, and we can all use more healing in this world, so let me know if you have a table for her.

Working from home in my home office, I am available for calls via Skype, Facebook Messenger, Zoom or cell.

First of all, because I realize that many of you may be in the situation of having had your business shut down, I will happily work out a discounted price that will fit your budget for anyone who is in a tight financial situation. So if you feel that I can help you and you would like to have a session, price will be no obstacle.

Second, my schedule is flexible to accommodate all of you. Appointments are available days, evenings and weekends. I have been doing this for years so that scheduling will present no obstacle for you.

Heck, these days, without any outside events scheduled, it is hard for me to remember what day it is. :)

Great Awakenings arising from this crazy time

Although the stay at home strategy to help reduce the spread of the virus is making lots of things difficult for millions of people, there are some great awakenings coming from this experience.

First, I want to tell all of you who are keeping in touch that it is really good to hear from you. I also am checking on other people I care about. All calls and messages are welcome.

Another one is that it is heart warming to see people volunteering to help others.

Another is that we begin to realize what are the things that we really need.

All this talk about death makes us think about what we are doing and why, and if there are other choices we should be making to improve the quality of our life?

Another is that we have time to do things we have been thinking about, and in this process, we have an opportunity to sort out what is important and what is not.

Kind of amazing, isn't it? This craziness prompts us to think of the important things we want to work on and get done, while the lesser things are easy to identify and set aside.

No matter what we think of all these recent events, beyond a doubt, our minds are re-directing our focus to what is really important. Is it something you would like to talk about? Are you feeling like you could use help with focus? Are you having a hard time letting go of some things and choosing others?

We get a glimpse of karma while all this is going on, don't we? Isn't it interesting who we are keeping in touch with and who is keeping in touch with us? Isn't it interesting to see what value we attach to things now? Isn't it interesting to see how we are choosing to use our time?


Have you noticed how your feelings are really a language that spirit uses to communicate with us?

Like many of you, I have always got some projects set aside for later. So I am going through this stack of books that I want to read. Yet, when I am picking them up and wondering if this is what I should read next, I get that definite gut feeling of no, and on other books, the clear feeling of yes. And I notice that some of this is running contrary to what I thought when I got them, so my spirit guides are shifting my focus. That nudge you feel in your gut when making a choice is a clear yes or no from our spirit guides. Figuring out why they say yes or no is for us to figure out later.

As I mentioned previously, I am experimenting with new techniques since public events have been cancelled. Thanks to you, I have learned to use Zoom for individual consultations and we have done a couple of family meetings using Zoom since we live all over the country.

And I have begun making videos on You Tube. At present, I am just doing some brief talks for inspiration rather than classes. I have done some individual classes using Skype and Zoom, so if you are interested, let's make good use of this technology.

My schedule is very open and I am happy to be flexible on my prices for those who are having a hard time financially.

Since last newsletter, the expo companies have set their dates back further because of all the current restrictions. So now, the first expo back on the schedule is Mid-June.

So things are moving forward. Take advantage of this down time to get some emotional support or spiritual insight while all this panic is swirling all around us.

Have you also experienced your feelings steering you in new directions? Have you been feeling that it is time for a new direction? Are you feeling a strong draw to interests you have had on the back burner for a while now?

On a lighter note, since I have not been going out much, I have forgotten about buying lottery tickets. My winnings have been the same as when I was buying tickets.

Another light note is that since walking is one of the few things we can do for exercise and enjoyment, lots more people are out walking now than usual and most of the people I see will smile, say hello or exchange brief conversations. It is quite nice that this is happening. Perhaps after this panic is over, more people will continue the habit of walking. What are other good developments you can see arising from all this?

The photo above I took inside a botanical garden in Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. I just loved this art which looked like it was created with tiles.
