The Akashic Records

O P E N I N G A C O N V E R S AT I O N W I T H Y O U R S O U L BY DON SN Y DER The word “Akasha” is Sanskrit for ether, and it is defined as “the universal etheric field in which a record of past events is imprinted.” When describing the Akashic Records, many people use an analogy of a library with a book for every soul. I prefer to think of the Akashic Records as a database powered by Divine energy on the “ethernet.” When you access the Akashic Records, it’s like going onto Google and searching for answers you know exist but aren’t currently aware of. Akashic Records are an energetic recording of each soul’s journey over every lifetime on this planet and beyond, since the dawn of creation. Every thought, word and deed is recorded in the Akashic Records, including each soul’s intentions in each lifetime. You are connected to this energy whether you are in soul form, human form, or any other energetic form. Because of this connection, your soul’s current intentions in this lifetime are accessible through the Akashic Records. This can assist you in understanding your purpose and current life circumstances, while offering guidance about the best choices and possibilities available to you. Because past lives are recorded within the Akashic Records, you can use them to support and better understand your soul’s growth. Past life experiences are often useful when trying to understand patterns and behaviors in your current lifetime. Knowledge from past lives allows for a better understanding of your “here and now,” increasing insight to help you create a better you, now and in your future. While the Akashic Records will give you possible actions for specific situations, they will seldom tell you exactly what to do. When a future is indicated, it is initially a probability or possibility with the result determined by your chosen action. Your records represent a constantly changing set of feasible futures that are presented as we interact with others and learn from knowledge we’ve already taken in. Currently, you are making decisions based THE EDGE MAGAZINE 763.433.9291 P.O. Box 664, Anoka, MN 55303 www.edgemagazine.net

on a belief system that you were either raised with or have consciously chosen; this belief system may, or may not, serve your highest good. Instead of trying to decide if your belief system serves your highest good, you can use the Akashic Records to learn your soul’s perspective. Allow your soul to guide you regarding current lifetime circumstances, relationships, along with the best choices and possibilities available to you. The Akashic Records have been an inspiration for every spiritual philosophy, mystical undertaking and mythical story that has profoundly influenced human behavior and understanding. Information in the Akashic Records molds and shapes all levels of human awareness as it comes from a place of the Divine Mind. The sum of all consciousness and awareness is represented within the Akashic Records, allowing us to use the records for our own inspiration. Having your records open during a creative process is one way to use the Akashic Records for your benefit and the benefit of others. Another use of the Akashic Records is during spiritual or energy healing. By accessing the Akashic Records, your soul will attract energy, at the desired frequency, to channel for any healing needed by the soul. This is true whether you are doing healing for yourself or someone else, and it allows for a unique, multifaceted healing. What I find most fascinating about the Akashic Records is that all information provided comes from a place of light, love and

courage. While some answers are not what you “want” to hear, they are always the answers you “need” to hear. The Akashic Records are unbiased and forthright, always attempting to mentor, lead and assist each soul to its maximum potential. Therefore, it’s important to access your records humbly, leaving your ego at the door. Self-accessing other forms of psychic information can be difficult due to our egos and built-in biases. With the Akashic Records, it is realistic to access your own records, provided you are truly willing to listen and ask for guidance from a place of light, love and courage. Soul work means giving in to what is, accepting what is and being willing to change ourselves, allowing maximum soul growth in this lifetime. a DON SNYDER is a Spiritual Healer and Reader of Akashic Records. At age 13 Don shared that he was psychic and could talk to “God” with a trusted family member. For many years afterward, he was stifled by their claims of being sacrilegious and blasphemous. After breaking free of this relationship, his psychic and spiritual healing gifts emerged and expanded. Don has studied with Echo Bodine, Wes Hamilton and Bobby Sullivan as he re-developed his gifts and has been teaching classes to help others read their own Akashic Records.

IN MEMORIAL Shakti Gawain (1948–2018) New World Library cofounder and bestselling author Shakti Gawain passed away on Nov. 11, 2018. Originally named Carol Louise Gawain, she was born in Trenton, New Jersey, on September 30, 1948. Shakti attended Reed College in Portland, Ore., for several years before transferring to the University of California-Irvine, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in dance in June 1971. Her first, and only, nineto-five job after graduation was as a receptionist at the South Vietnamese Embassy in Washington, D.C., shortly before the end of the Vietnam War. After that, she spent two years living in Europe and traveling in a van to places like Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. When she returned home to the United States, she moved to San Francisco and began pursuing her passion for consciousness and metaphysical studies in earnest. That’s where her path first crossed with Marc Allen’s in 1974. He nicknamed her Shakti, which is the Sanskrit word for the divine feminine creative force. It was such a perfect representation of the way she showed up in the world that

her new name stuck. Marc and Shakti started leading workshops together and writing and producing educational booklets out of the kitchen of their small apartment in Oakland, Calif. It was a shoestring operation that started with very little capital and extremely minimal sales. All that changed with the publication of Shakti’s first book, Creative Visualization, which experienced strong wordof-mouth sales right from the start. And then, in the early 1980s, Oprah Winfrey invited Shakti to be a guest on her yet-to-be-syndicated television show. When “The Oprah Winfrey Show” went national in 1986 and re-aired Shakti’s interview,

Christina Rose (1949-2018) Christina Rose, a master teacher, speaker, healer and friend to many, passed on to the higher dimensions at 11:11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 2018 in California. Her beautiful Spirit was released into the heavens after a courageous battle with advanced Parkinson’s Disease. She lived her life doing her sacred service to the world. Her passion and dedication was being a constant beacon of Inspiration and Hope. She was always working on behalf of bringing light and love to this planet. She was graceful, strong, bold, brave, and always on the cutting edge of inner and outer wisdom. Grief is a very hard task6  WWW.EDGEMAGAZINE.NET

master when one says goodbye to an Avatar Star Being Friend. Star Beings are believed to be ETs, aliens, interstellar ancestors and Star people (people use these terms interchangeably) who descended to Earth in human form

Creative Visualization was on its way to the international bestseller status it enjoys today, with over seven million copies sold worldwide. New World Library, which was called Whatever Publishing at the time, was also on its way to becoming the widely recognized independent publisher that it is today. Shakti went on to write several other books, including Living in the Light, Return to the Garden, The Path of Transformation, The Four Levels of Healing, Creating True Prosperity and Developing Intuition. Her books have sold more than 10 million copies and have been translated into 38 languages. Shakti met and fell in love with Jim Burns, her husband of 28 years, on a beach in Big Sur, Cali., in 1988 during a beautiful sunset. They were married in August 1990 at her home on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Shakti left New World Library in 1992 to start a publishing company with Jim called Nataraj Publishing, and she also opened a healing center in Mill Valley, Calif. She spent the remainder of her career mentoring individuals, publishing books and offering workshops. Shakti was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the late

1990s and later with Lewy body disease. She lived with the diagnosis with the amazing strength and grace that made her who she was. In 2015 Shakti made the hard decision to step back from her public life so that she could focus on her own healing and spend time with Jim. With him by her side, she passed away peacefully from complications following hip surgery. Shakti was an extraordinary example of a life well lived, and she will be greatly missed. She is survived by her husband, Jim Burns, and was preceded in death by her parents, Elizabeth Miller Gawain and Theodore Gawain. We are grateful that her legacy will live on through her books, audios, and videos — and in the lives of so many people she not only touched emotionally but genuinely helped to have better, more fulfilling lives. Services will be planned at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made in Shakti’s name to the Lewy Body Dementia Association. Visit Shakti’s website at www.shaktigawain.com.

to complete a mission of helping awaken people to their truth. This is who Christina Rose was. Christina Rose has now passed on to her original home into the Omni Universes. She lived her life doing her sacred service to the world. Her passion and dedication to her mission was a constant beacon of inspiration, courage and boldness. The Star Being Avatar in her chose to follow and uphold the original instructions of being the caretakers of each other and Mother Earth. She recognized and taught that our original umbilical connection was to the stars and that we must awaken to this so we can use our frequency of Love to take care of each other and our planet Earth. She would always remind me and others

that long before scientists ever caught wind of the molecular concept that we’re made of stardust. Christina Rose was the embodiment of a confluence of prophecies and greater knowledge which always spoke to the necessity to activate a new level of consciousness for the benefit of humanity. Her fundamental message was for humanity to remember their Star Being qualities and advance technical ways of using heart energy to protect and restore the sacred back into everyday encounters and way of living. She spent endless hours working on ley lines that were aligned to ancient monuments and prehistoric sites that some  see CHRISTINA ROSE on p. 7

believed were paths of positive energy inherent in the Earth and needed to be activated again and used. If I would tell you that she will be missed by many, that is true when it comes to her physical body. But she will continue to help rebuild the sacred as she now is in the Omni Universe. She would want us all to wake up now to our star roots and use our ancient star abilities to bring

peace on Earth and good will to all! She now is riding the waves and sits at the table of the Galactic and Oneness counsel table. She will continue to work through me and guide me to my work that I am doing and will be doing in the future! She sits at the right hand side of Jesus and Mother Mary, Melchizedek, and many other masters and will be helping us all to move Gaia in her ascension to a new tomorrow. This news is bigger and better than any dreamer can begin to

imagine. She is not dead, just transformed now into the electromagnetics of pure love. Christina Rose was a heroine who gave to her world and to me to help make the Hope Intefaith Center successful. She taught me almost everything I know and helped me become the teacher and woman I am today. I am rejoicing and in sorrow all at the same time. She was born on Christmas Day as Ed Ciochetto and attended Chisholm Senior High School in Chisholm, Minn., and

the University of MinnesotaDuluth. She was a corporate consultant, teacher and trainer, and energy specialist with more than 20 years of corporate professional experience. Many friends supported her choice to transform from Ed to her authentic self, Christina Rose. A special service for Christina Rose’s Celebration of Life will take place at 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at Hope Intefaith Center, 114 Pohl Road, Mankato, Minn. a ~ Rev.

A Sacred Shift of Consciousness A PLEIADIAN MESSAGE

BY CHR ISTINE DAY Beloved ones, we greet you. We honor your path and the individual journey that each one of you is taking here on the planet during this step of transition. Your paths are unique as you navigate your way Home, as you step forward, reconnecting to your Higher Self. One path is not more than another, simply different. Each one of you has made the pre-agreement to make the shift from having a human experience to consciously embody your sacredness while transforming your relationship with your human element in this lifetime. This is the prime objective you have come to realize at this time. An essential part of this process is for you to move beyond the constraints of your limited ego mind’s perception of your abilities. By suspending your belief in limitation and lack as you move forward, you reach consciously inwards to interact with another level of you. Your sacred nature, your Higher Self, exists waiting, fully intact just beyond the veils. As you engage with this aspect of yourself consciously, you reopen a doorway and move into another cycle of being. As you choose to reconnect to this part of your self, an unlimited potential of yourself can begin to unfold and you can begin to reengage and align to your Higher Self consciousness. Through free will, you can set in motion a rippling of your unique light to begin actively flowing throughout your cells, creating a profound energetic reset within your physical and energetic systems. This reconnection will allow you to move into a different way of being within the world, with you beginning to be able to perceive the multidimensional nature that exists side by side with the illusion. This transformation is within your reach right now. You are ready to initiate this change — and you are the only one who can activate the next phase of this process within you. Part of the “New Dawning” prophecy is that we, as human beings, are to resurrect ourselves in this lifetime. Remember: “You are who you have been waiting for.”

NAVIGATE YOUR WAY The energy on planet Earth has been transforming, preparing itself in readiness for you to make this transition. The veils have progressively become more fluid, making it easier for you to navigate your way through to the other side, to realign with your sacred nature to enable you to move beyond the third dimensional illusionary constraints so you can align to your energetic purpose held 1 0  WWW.EDGEMAGAZINE.NET

within the Higher Realms. This design has been created to bring you into the vast experience of reconnection of Self, allowing you to stabilize to your natural spiritual nature within your physical body, and within your heart. There has been a slow and steady process of change taking place leading into this current year. The entire energetic core of the planet now carries a pure heartbeat of light, which is interacting within the God Consciousness light within this resident Universe. The third dimensional grid has undergone transmutation by moving from being immovable, like steel holding illusion in place for lifetimes, into a soft fluid light allowing these veils of illusion to lift and dissolve. The third and final repositioning of the sun about to unfold at the moment of New Year will herald in a sacred shift of consciousness, which will anchor a new era for all of you who are ready. The action of the “Corridor of Light” will descend on the Earth.

WINDS OF CHANGE At the moment of New Year, the winds of change will flow across the Earth plane and will have an action likened to a flash of lightning, shifting all that is old — and in that moment a new pulsating energetic grid will be birthed. As the sun repositions itself, this “Corridor of Light” will take full root, creating the illumination of God light to flow through to each one of you who is open to receive. This light holds the purest frequency of love and carries the design of illumination within. This dynamic energy will flow within the cells of your heart, acting as a mirror. This energy reflects the light of the sun, and as it interacts and reconnects you to your multidimensional heart, your divine purpose will be revealed. The main role of this reflection is to reopen a dormant pathway that has resided within your heart until this time. The forging and activation of this path will allow you to flourish within this new realm of light. This love is part of your natural multidimensional makeup. For those of you on the path, you who are the seekers of Truth, this “Corridor of Light” creates an opportunity for the reopening of a heightened awareness of your sacred Higher Self. This reconnection enables you to engage with this love, which has always existed within your multidimensional heart. This love holds the design to replenish your human spirit. The quality of this love has a very different action compared to what you have previously lived and experienced in the limited

third dimensional world. This love knows no restriction, has no boundaries and knows no limitation. The action of this love is transformation and transmutation within all that has been broken down over time in your world. This can rejuvenate the human spirit and revive compassion within the ego mind, bringing a balm to the deep feelings of tiredness from living within the human experience. This love that is an aspect of you will arise through your heart cells and naturally extend to your human self, allowing for a deep rest. This quality of love is designed to reunite humanity through the common element of your God Consciousness aspect, which has always resided within your hearts. This is the common thread that interweaves between individuals, and that will ultimately create the deep bond of love within communities.

FORGE NEW PATHWAYS Remember, there are two distinct sides of your makeup: you have your human aspect and your natural multidimensional sacred Higher Self. Up to this juncture in your collective lifetimes, you have played out your humanity and it is at this time in this transitional phase you forge new pathways through realignment to your sacredness, moving beyond the suffering and struggle of third dimensional illusion. Through the engagement within your multidimensional heart, you will experience freedom of limitation. Now you must let go and know that you will experience an acceleration of energy within your own systems, especially within your heart as you move closer to the time of New Year. The cells of your heart are being prepared to receive and be activated within the dimensional expanded light of your own God essence. You must be willing to move into a place of “not knowing” throughout December and make a conscious movement of alignment within your heart. There is nothing more important at this juncture than to develop this connection and participate fully within the vastness of your heart in preparation. As you get closer to the New Year, there will be further vibrational shifts, which will activate the magnetic core within the Earth in alignment to the sun. The magnetic core will be transmitting an elevated frequency pulse across the planet leading up to this happening. This is designed to set up the correct vibrational frequencies to enable the Earth plane to fully anchor the essence of the “Corridor of Light.” This current process is the Earth’s environment being totally redesigned on an energetic and multidimensional level.


A DEEPER UNEARTHING These dramatic changes are going to strongly impact the way the third dimensional drama is played out. These changes will create a deeper unearthing of that which is hidden. Anything that is not of Truth will begin to surface in an accelerated wave across the planet this month. These waves have been taking place on many levels this year. Know that these changes are geared to accelerate and to build in momentum on an even grander scale during the month of December. There is nothing to fear. You simply need to witness this unfolding upheaval on a global scale while staying focused and connected within your hearts. Know that any unresolved issues within you will begin to surface and be played out in your relationships, in your world. This must happen at this time because of the new energy flowing onto your planet. Welcome all that is coming up, because it brings liberation within you. It brings to you a deeper understanding of your humanness of imperfection and idiosyncrasies. Hold yourself with love and compassion in your sacred process of unfolding. What is essential at this time is to be authentic to yourself and not fear that which is inside of you. Celebrate your human aspect within all of your feelings as they arise within you. Meet the moment and celebrate life just as it is in each and every moment. You can trust that “all is in hand” because this is a Truth. The sun rises each morning to greet you and

every day brings rays of preparatory light to your planet. Be aware of how you can align consciously to the rising sun and engage with these illumination rays. Claim the reflections from the sun, which holds the mirror of your own divine light up to you. This is your time to shine, like a beacon in the dark. You can illuminate others simply by aligning within the vastness of your heart. There is a powerful process that you can begin to prepare yourself for at this time. As you open consciously at the New Year moment, the “Corridor of Light” will immediately illuminate directly into your heart cells. You have free will, so by your action of consciously engaging with the “Corridor of Light,” it can anchor the creation of an enormous acceleration of awakening within you.

PROCESS OF PREPARING TO ALIGN TO THE CORRIDOR OF LIGHT Take your time during this process. Be still and breathe. Don’t let your ego mind rush you. You can do this process once a day if this feels right for you: 1. Bring your hands to your heart and feel the palms of your hands connect to your physical chest. 2. Bring three individual conscious breaths (breathe in from the mouth and out from the mouth) into the connection. Take one conscious breath and then let go. Take a moment to feel the letting go before proceeding to the next conscious breath.  see SACRED SHIFT on p. 12

3. Now bring in this frequency sound within the space where you are holding. Allow your awareness to fill the space that you are seeing, sensing or feeling and only then bring in the sound. Sound, SHAHN (pronounced sharn). Use the sound as many times until your feel, see or sense the space opening further. 4. Now gently move your palms off the chest, approximately 3 inches away from your body. Then bring your awareness into the space between your palms and your chest. Feel see or sense the opening, bring your awareness within the opening of the doorway. 5. Use the conscious breath, like a soft wind, within the opening. Now let go within the space, which is being revealed to you. Take your time to align fully into the energetic space that you are experiencing. Slow down and don’t rush. Do this three times. 6. Bring in your sound, SHAHN, into the space. Claim the space that is birthing by bringing your awareness fully within the space. Take your time to align and be still within the space. Use this sound as many times until the space is no longer revealing more of itself to you. 7. Gently bring all of your awareness to your hands on your chest, until you feel your body connected to the chair and your feet on the ground. Know that you can call us, the Pleiadians forward at any time for support in your unfolding process. We witness all that you are in this moment.

DECEMBER HOROSCOPE Gratitude under Duress

MERCURIAL MESSAGES THROUGH THE ZODIAC

BY HEATHER ROA N ROBBINS

If the astral winds can buffet us as December begins, our best refuge will be in the Sagittarian ability to search for and find something to be grateful for, even in dark moments. Both Mercury retrograde and Venus in Scorpio ask us to look into the past — which can help us finish term papers and prepare for exams — but leave us haunted. This review can help us prepare to make some changes. The sun squares Mars December 2, which pushes our willpower and stirs tempers. Think through conflict around international questions and remember you are a global citizen. Stay steady and warm-hearted through a confusing time December 5-7 as the Sun squares Neptune and Mercury turns direct. Let’s work to correct misunderstandings and misperceptions, starting with our own. Tension eases up December 12 as Mercury enters Sagittarius. And now the fun begins, the mood lightens, we look forward to travel and to a fresh approach to truth as generosity buoys our hearts as Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius December 12. But our thread of concentration may fade, leaving us easily distracted. New hope for healthy change arises around the winter solstice December 21 as the Sun trines Uranus and enters Capricorn. December 24 brings a magical tone but also some last-minute confusion and potential weather difficulties; keep eyes open and stay sensibly entranced. Our hearts dive deep as Venus sextiles Pluto, but the action picks up on New Year’s Eve as Mars enters Aries. Watch tempers, and get ready for a pivotal new year ahead.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Take care of your health. Work behind-the-scenes as the month begins, and be patient. Your mood and luck open up after December 12. Engage the chance to win, succeed or accomplish mid-December. Support others through the solstice and get ready for a dynamic year ahead. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Don’t count on your luck in early December, though your steady, stable rhythm can be a real help to all. Enjoy appreciation and reward for your work December 16, and a touch of magic December 21. Open the heart and go deep December 22-28. Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Hang on early in the month; just do the work right in front of you. After December 6 you can breathe a sigh of relief. Come into your own mid-December; scintillate. Great heartcentered opportunities abound around the solstice, then let others lead the conversation. Cancer (June 21-July 22)…The past walks with you December 1-6, but don’t look too far back. Keep your review positive. Find what’s working, and blow on those goals. Comfort and you will be comforted mid-month. Your family may offer more support after December 21.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You may miss times gone by, people not here, but don’t let that blind you to what you have in front of you. December 2-6 be kind to yourself, and don’t take the bait. December 8-21 bubbles with possibility, search for gratitude and start new sparks. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Prioritize patience and follow through. Lay low, finish work and keep snarky comments to yourself through December 12. Then watch the world unfold. Live life to the fullest through December 21, peer carefully through some confusion or sloppy conditions, but find magic December 24-28. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Don’t get between other arguing parties and try to protect them this first week, just to set an example of fairness. Your work as social director kicks in December 12, with success December 16-21; provide opportunities for other people to connect, and your world flourishes. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Your inner Grinch may want to speak up, but keep moderation in comments, purchases and social warmth. Curb the tongue December 2, deal with confusion December 7-17, and just take one step at a time. Respond to opportunity for real connection December 17 on.

Affirm: ‘I Don’t Know’ A MONTHLY AFFIRMATION

BY CH A R LOTTE “M A M A” ROSE

“I don’t know” is not at odds with “I know.” In fact, one could not be true without the other. However, when we declare our unknowing, we are consciously opening ourselves up to receive all parts of ourselves that we have yet to understand in this life. Imagine life through the perspective that a spider holds. A spider may live in the same room as you or me and hold a perspective so different from our own that you may not recognize their world and ours as even being shared. Imagine now the perspective that your neighbor holds and know that his or her world may look equally foreign to you who holds a specific base of knowledge and experiences. What is it then that we have in common with both the spider and our neighbor? The answer is the ability to receive, interpret and express emotion. Emotion is the fabric of the Universe. Often called, “energy,” it is the material that “feels” and that we, as receptive and interpretive beings, feel. Emotion may be routed through one creature’s system completely differently than it moves through another’s and yet, both are living as feeling beings. When we declare, “I don’t know,” we honor the myriad of experiences that are not our own in this body, with this perspective, in this life. We recognize, simultaneously, that there is value in separation and in wholeness and that both values equate to the same. When we state “I don’t know,” we are also stating what we do know. We state that there is value in time and the unfolding of our stories. We accept where we are in the moment and know that it is both impossible and unreasonable for us to expect to have more understanding than we currently hold. We know that it is within the wholeness of our being to come to understand anything and everything that our curiosity leads us to. We release the pressure to have more awareness than we have and in doing so, our

awareness is expanded. We affirm that our lives are guided by emotion itself rather than the will of the individual and in this understanding of guidance we release the need to understand anything more. The affirmation, “I don’t know,” is a declaration of trust. Trust in our worthiness to receive beauty, abundance and understanding. Trust in the timing and directions of our lives. Trust in the bigger picture that we are all a part of. When we are in the thickness of the dark and the throws of the drama we can state to ourselves, “I don’t know,” and feel the security that comes in trusting that we are fully equipped with the tools to navigate our lives regardless of whether we fully understand them. The greatest of these tools is compassion. In extending compassion to the spider, to our neighbor and to ourselves, we are stating simply and again, “I don’t know” and furthermore, “I don’t have to.” We don’t have to understand anything to offer compassion and it will always heal, direct us toward the highest good of all, re-center, validate and clear our emotions and put us in a balanced position of service from which we can take both direction and action that is guided by everything beyond our knowing. I invite you in the month of December and in any that follow to affirm “I don’t know,” and in doing so, to open yourself up to all of the parts of you that you’ve yet to meet or have forgotten. I hope that this affirmation brings you the relaxation that you need to trust and enjoy this life and to offer compassion to yourself and all with whom you share this world. a CHARLOTTE “MAMA” ROSE is an artist, psychic and mother of two based in St. Paul, MN.

The Informative God:

Challenging the Status Quo The Informative God, a book providing an answer to the ultimate question of what happens after our time is over, has just been published by Brad Bowins books. This new title reveals how we are all immortal, and why this information-based reality comprises a “treasure” of infinite value! People often look to religion to provide hope that there is actually something more than “the end” that science seems to offer. Human intelligence makes us aware that life ends, but has so far failed to resolve what actually transpires, if anything. Is there a heaven, hell, continuation as spirits, passage into an underworld, and if any of these options occur, what will it actually look like? Even atheists would prefer a viable answer consistent with science. Indeed, we all need hope. Curious regarding what might transpire after life, Brad Bowins, M.D., applied his experience with theorizing and research, and exploring major world religions, past and present, to see what they offer to the solution. This information yields a unique link to science, with the fusion demonstrating how we are immortal in a very real sense! The Informative God provides this non-fiction answer in an entertaining fiction and travelogue format, while revealing how information comprises a “treasure” worth more than all others combined. Following a life-changing event, a young internal medicine specialist wonders about the meaning of life and death. The Horror leads to The Curiosity, where he embarks on a round-the-world odyssey exploring major religions. With much information but no clear answers, he ventures forward to The Discovery. Intrigued by the notion of permanence and impermanence, he learns how this plays into the ultimate solution. Combining this understanding with scientific knowledge, he achieves a surprisingly simple answer to the ultimate spiritual question. In this era of mostly negative news, and pessimism regarding what transpires after death, we can all benefit from a hopeful solution. For a refreshing and optimistic answer, take a journey of discovery to The Informative God. Dr. Brad Bowins challenges the status quo with his books and articles, whether related to mental health, sexual orientation, social and environmental justice, men’s health, or religion and spirituality. Approaching life and research with a spirit of curiosity and exploration has yielded novel insights that form the basis for his unique writings. Dr. Bowins is a psychiatrist, researcher and founder of The Centre for Theoretical Research in Psychiatry & Clinical Psychology (psychiatrytheory.com). His peer-reviewed publications have fostered paradigm shifts so crucial to the advancement of science and knowledge. Visit Bradbowinsbooks.com. a

Releasing Tension & Trauma

AN INTERVIEW WITH INNER CHILD EXPERT CATHRYN TAYLOR BY TIM MIEJA N Sometimes the missing piece of the puzzle miraculously appears. Leading inner child expert Cathryn Taylor, whose bestseller The Inner Child Workbook broke new ground in the mental health field in the 1980s, has spent the past two decades supporting the body, mind, heart and soul of those in need. And yet, there was still something she needed to support her clients more fully. Enter the research of David Bercelli, Ph.D., and his revolutionary new Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®). Dr. Bercelli, who spent two decades living and working in nine countries providing workshops and recovery programs for international organizations, created TRE through his expertise in the area of trauma intervention and conflict resolution. This unique process reportedly helps to reduce: worry and anxiety, symptoms of PTSD, marital stress, workplace stress, poor sleep, muscle and back pain, and much more. Cathryn Taylor, who regularly interviews noted holistic professionals for her Edge Talk Radio podcast “Inner Views,” learned about TRE during a talk with Eric Robins, M.D., a leading pioneer in the field of Mind-Body medicine. Synchronistically, her regular visits to the Bay Area in Northern California gave her the opportunity to become certified as a TRE provider. “It just fit into the last piece of what I offer, in terms of the healing modalities, so I really wanted to learn about it and now pass it on to my clients and to groups,” Cathryn said in an interview with The Edge.

Describe what someone would experience during a typical session of the TRE? Cathryn Taylor: It is very simple, actually. It’s a series of seven exercises that were developed by Dr. David Bercelli, a trauma therapist in the Middle East and in Africa who has dealt with a lot of people who were living in war-torn areas and facing trauma daily. What he noticed was that whenever somebody responded to a trauma, they contracted and pulled their bodies inwardly, activating the psoas muscle deep in the body and stimulating other muscles that contract when we go into the fight-or-flight response. He also noticed that children would automatically shake in response to this. Dr. Bercelli deducted that we were genetically encoded not only to protect ourselves, but also to release that contraction. However, as adults we’re socialized out of doing that because it’s just not cool to do that. It’s seen as us being either vulnerable or weak. So he was inspired to develop these seven exercises 1 6  WWW.EDGEMAGAZINE.NET

release that stress response so that we’re not walking around in that hypervigilant posture ready to respond to stress. In terms of energy therapy and everything else I do, because I help others with so much childhood trauma, it is just a nice combination. I really like TRE because it is applicable not only to dramatic traumas like what David was experiencing, but day-to-day traumas, and life-event traumas. People can integrate it into their daily regimen, like I do now for 10 or 15 minutes when I come home from the gym. It’s recommended when you first start to do it only two or three times a week as your body is getting used to it. Each person then integrates it according to what their needs are.

called TRE. What they do is sequentially build a charge in the body that invites the body to go into a shaking mechanism called a neurogenic tremor, which is simply the central nervous system’s innate way of releasing excess tension through a contraction and relaxation. Animals do it and children do it, and now this procedure teaches adults how to do it.

Can you give us a general outline of those seven exercises? The first exercise is just grounding and connecting, and then you sequentially move up the body to the calf muscles and then the quadriceps, the buttocks, and ultimately up to the psoas muscles and the hip flexors. As you do that, you are building the charge. The seventh exercise is when you’re lying on the floor and you engage in the shaking mechanism by positioning your feet in a certain way. It takes about 40 minutes to actually go through the process. What I love about it is it is self-administered, so after about four to six times with a provider you can really begin to do it on your own. You are stretching and relaxing the muscles, so the TRE process allows the body to go back and complete the fight-or-flight response that got frozen in the body. It is a very gentle process, and a nonverbal process, which I really like. Sometimes people know what’s being released, sometimes they don’t. It’s a very nice companion to EFT, which is my other certification. EFT tapping is more targeted. You’re using sequences to address certain issues with specificity, which makes tapping so effective. The body is invited to release what is dislodged through the tapping and resolved in the electrical circuitry of our body through EFT, but now the body has a chance to finally relax and

What was your experience like the first time you worked with TRE? The first weekend I did it for three days and I had a few experiences. First, I noticed a significant decrease in my reactivity, biochemically. It told me that certain biochemical responses that I had, like to wheat and different carbohydrates, had been locked in my body from a previous experience. When I did a series of TRE exercises, it somehow diminished that. I also noticed immediately that I slept better and that my body felt like it had permission to begin to release tensions on its own. During the last night of the workshop, I think I slept on my shoulder wrong or something, but it woke me up in the middle of the night. I was half awake, so I wasn’t really aware of what I was doing, and all of a sudden my shoulder just started working it out for me. I deducted that I had already established a relationship with my body that invited it to release tension and trauma. Like David said, I was genetically encoded to release it and my body had enough trust in me at that point to know that it was okay to do it. The other thing I noticed was my response to my brother’s health-care crisis. At night I was able to go home and apply the TRE and reduce the stress in response to that immediate crisis. I found TRE to be very applicable and started using it on myself right away. When I came back from my last training in April, I began to share it with clients and I now see what a benefit it is to my entire modality of the inner child and soul work, especially under the umbrella of the Akashic Records. We go into it with an intention and then at the end of our work, whatever the body has dislodged, TRE then releases. It’s pretty impactful. Who would potentially benefit from these exercises?


Everyone. Anyone who experiences stress. If you get caught in a traffic jam. If you get stressed when you go to work. If you have a fight with a loved one. If you get pulled over by the police. That stress, if it’s not released, stores in your body. A lot of us resolve those things on our own, but if we have a history of stress, especially post-traumatic stress, then we are cued to respond to events as life threatening, whether they are or not. I use TRE a lot because I work a lot with alcoholics, I work a lot with the inner child work, and I work a lot with soul issues. Now, another interesting thing to consider is TRE’s ability to help wherever we have DNA programming from even a past life that is anchored in our posturing in this lifetime. I’ve even worked with people where it’s dislodged contractions which then open up a doorway for a past life experience.There is just no place that it cannot have an impact.

So as a new TRE provider, you will be available to offer this to others soon? I’m going to start teaching it at Echo Bodine’s Center for Spiritual Development & Intuitive Living by the 1st of January. I’m going to be offering an ongoing drop-in group, so people will always have a place where they can get the support. This is really new to the Twin Cities. I think there is just one other person from here who is now going to through the training. There are some certified providers in Wisconsin (Eau Claire, Milwaukee, and a number in the Madison area). So, I’m very excited to be introducing it, not only to The Edge community, but to the Twin Cities at large. So this new process perfectly complements the inner child soul work that you have been doing for years? Yes, because so much of the tension that is stored in our body came from that. Most people, especially those who are beginning to do their inner child work, don’t have the language for it. For instance, I worked with a woman the other day and we started out by doing the TRE exercises. Afterward, I asked, “Now, what did you notice?” And she said, “Well, I noticed the tension right here in my shoulder.” At that point, I was able to do all of the other techniques that I have. We were already working within her Akashic Records. I find that the Akashic Records give us the context, and the inner child and soul meditations that we do commingle with my form of interactive EFT tapping to really clean everything out on so many levels. So when we start out with the TRE exercises, it sets in motion the piece of work that we’re supposed to do that day. It really can be sandwiched at either end of the process. I truly feel, Tim, that this is the missing piece in my work. I feel like my entire modality that I’ve been blessed to develop

and have been given over the years is really a comprehensive model that helps people get from where they are to where they want to be in a very condensed manner. It doesn’t have to take forever anymore. It helps them reestablish a harmonious relationship with their body, a harmonious relationship with their emotional self, which is represented in the inner child, and a harmonious relationship with their Higher Self. It’s adaptable to all levels of healing: body, mind, heart and soul.

On the whole, is the public now getting more of a grasp of the importance of acknowledging the inner child? I really think they are because it is subtly integrated even into the media and televison shows now, where it’s pretty common to show a dialogue between an adult self and a younger version of themselves. I think people are a little bit more adapted to it at this point, and now there is so much research that shows that what we learned was really anchored in the belief systems formed in childhood. With neuroplasticity and the new brain science that has really taken hold at the beginning of this century, there is a new hope that all of what we experienced in the past can now be reworked and redone. We don’t feel like we have to be stuck with what we experienced in childhood. We can rewire the brain. I think people are much more fluid with the many dimensions of self, and I think that parallels our opening up to other dimensions of past lives, as well as the expansion of our beliefs in the physical and the non-physical selves. Since 2012, we have just taken giant leaps in opening up on all those levels. That makes my work a lot easier because a lot more people are willing to navigate through those different aspects of self, both soul and inner child. It’s opening us up to acknowledging that we’re multidimensional. Exactly! And there is so much evidence now that the veil between the physical and the non-physical worlds is getting thinner and thinner. I am going through the process right now, with my brother having transitioned yesterday, and as sad as I am on my human level, I can’t help but be so full of joy. I have had so many experiences with him just in this last week that have expanded my ability to believe that the world is changing and our belief system is changing. I think it’s a real exciting time to navigate in all of those dimensions. What is the value of exploring one’s inner child, in terms of understanding that everything happens for a reason? I think that’s where accessing the Akashic Records has been so powerful for me. What the Akashic Records do for my work and the work that I do with others is give us the

spiritual purpose of our pain. We have experiences in our adult life that are tumultuous and have contrast and they inspire us to grow, and then someone finds themselves in my office. We open the records and look at the bigger picture and where in their childhood they feel a certain vibrational experience similar to what they’re now experiencing. We then ask in the infinite wisdom of the soul what it wanted you to experience by having this wound as a child and to then re-experience it in adulthood. We get the timeline and the continuum of where the pieces of work are — and then that’s where the tapping comes in. We go in and we resolve it in current time and get the illuminated adult in charge. We go back and heal the wound of the inner child, who has carried that soul legacy. Often what the inner child needs is the purpose to their pain, to know it wasn’t their fault, and that they didn’t deserve it. What a lot of people don’t understand is that we have the soul experience of our wounds and we have the personality’s experience. The personality is not always privy to what the soul’s agenda is and sometimes there is a disconnect between those two, so we have to help the personality process feeling like a victim, which is a real, valid feeling, and that has to be addressed. That can’t be whitewashed with, “Well, what’s the spiritual purpose? Come over here.” You can’t do that if someone is still feeling victimized, because there are unmet needs with that part who is feeling the victim that need to be addressed, acknowledged and healed. That’s always the first part, and that’s where the work with the inner child is very tender. I never go into the soul purpose until that inner child is on board and has gotten those needs met and is recognized for what it carried on behalf of the soul, whether it knew it or not.

So, now with the TRE you can provide even more support for your clients. I think the EFT really addresses the needs of the child, and TRE is addressing the needs of the body — the emotional stress that we experienced as a child that got locked in the body. That’s how I see it: TRE really is for my body, and EFT is where I help an individual process the pain in those three time frames: the adult self, and getting current, and neutralizing the immediate stress; healing the inner child with the interactive tapping; and going back to the time where the soul was caught. Sometimes a fragment of the soul gets caught in another dimension of time. We’re here in 2018, and we have a fight with our boss and we feel tension. Perhaps we have gone back to the inner child that had a compromising experience with maybe an abusive parent, or perhaps we go back to  see TENSION & TRAUMA on p. 22 DECEMBER 2018 THE EDGE

T H E N E W AG E ’ S R E L E VA N C E I N T H E 2 1 S T C E N T U RY

A Collective View of The New Age CH A NNELED BY KELLY THEBO FOR THE COLLECTI V E We’d like to talk with you this evening about the New Age. When people have used the term New Age it’s probably meant something different to each of them. Can you help us understand how this concept of the New Age has developed over the last 40 years or so? The New Age is a fourth-dimensional energy that is the spiritual awakening of the human race and it has been going on for much longer than 40 years. It is the transition between the third and fifth dimension. An awakening to divinity, an awakening to a greater appreciation of all that is. This is what a spiritual awakening is. You talked about it as The New Age, as a movement, as a belief system, because you did not realize that what was really happening was an energetic shifting into a new frequency. ’Twas a time when you began to wake up and express yourselves in a different way within the Western culture. You began to have a concern for your environment. You began to have a concern for the morality of what goes on upon the Earth plane. You began to want to identify as beings who are divine, who are more than just the dramas and the traumas of the Earth plane. You began to look at yourselves as making a contribution in a different way, in a way of frequency, but you didn’t really talk about it as frequency. You talked about it as The New Age, as a movement, as a wave of a belief system because you did not really realize, not right away anyway, that what was really happening was an energetic lifting. An energetic shifting, moving into a new frequency. Feeling it. Thinking differently. Having a different perception of your world as a result of the energy that you were experiencing and being exposed to, you see? One of the reasons that many of you have quit talking about The New Age is that many of the principles and beliefs that you were touting during that period of time are now widely, if not accepted, considered. It’s no longer considered foolish to want to take care of your planet, yes? It is no longer foolish to consider the health and the body as sacred, yes? People are coming online to the fact that they are divine beings and wanting to understand in a more intimate way, in a more meaningful way, who and what they are and why they are here. They look for meaning in their lives, do they not? So, there were some that woke up first, who came online first, who first sensed that 1 8  WWW.EDGEMAGAZINE.NET

frequency and realized what it was. And, you had to have a way of expressing this, yes, one to the other. To begin to find like-minded beings to be in relationship with, yes, as a support structure for the transformation that you were beginning to go through. That is all any of these movements are and it doesn’t matter what you call them. And it’s going to continue, you understand?

So are humans different today than they were 40 years ago? Absolutely. The energy upon the Earth plane is as it has never been before. It is fifth-dimensional energy that is here now and it was the fourth dimension that ushered it in. The New Age, and the 20th-century Spiritualism, and even the Fundamentalist Christianity and other religions went through a bit of a renaissance, did they not, during this period of time? So, yes, you are different in your frequency, and because you are different in your frequency your perceptions are different. You take this to mean that your world is different. It’s only different to some of you. As others begin to work with this energy, and embrace this energy, some will welcome it and some will not. And there will be a time of transition again as the fifth dimension is fully ushered in upon the Earth plane. When you talk of these movements, and you talk of the enlightenment of mankind, you’re talking of mankind knowing itself as more than it knew itself as previously. Appreciating an aspect of self that one could only suspect, and perhaps not really experience, is how many of you looked at it. That was all that was meant by New Age, was it not? An age when things would be different. Well, why are things different? Why are things ever different? It is because of frequency. You have a saying, yes? A leopard

never changes its spots? Well, a leopard changes very much in a new energy, and it doesn’t matter what it looks like on the outside. When you function within a frequency that is literally changing your DNA and changing every aspect of you at the molecular level, it is sending you information, it is expanding your view of yourself and of others, it is bringing online a questioning of all that you have known and all that you have embraced. And it is needed, is it not? Not because the world is a bad place. The world is just functioning at a lower frequency than many of you are functioning at now. That’s why you think the world is a painful place. That’s why you form these movements, because you’re seeking to survive in your new perceptions. You’re seeking to circle the wagons, yes? You think that in the conveying of the information that it changes another’s frequency. What is really happening is the intersection of energy between the Earth plane and the photon band that the Earth is traveling through. That is a very real physics principle more than it is a spiritual concept being shared one to the other. This is one of the things that we are about as The Collective, are we not? To speak of practicality of energy and frequency upon the Earth plane to help you to understand that what you have been holding as high and lofty ideals is actually a frequency that is changing how you think, how you process and how you see yourself, bringing online the multidimensional aspects of you. It’s no different than if you are looking in the mirror, and you are covered with dirt after working in the garden, and then you take a shower and you come out and look again into the mirror. You have not changed, but your perception of self has, as a result of the water washing over you, cleansing you, getting rid


of that which you don’t want in favor of that which you do want. A purity, yes? A freshness. To see self as you really are. ’Tis the same principle. When you stand in these energies, and live in them, and love in them, and die in them, it affects the entire planet, and your perceptions will forever be elevated and altered. So, is it the coming of The New Age? There will be many new ages, not just one. It is the coming of the new energy. It is very excellent that some realized that it was happening. That is how you are different. More of you are appreciating who and what you are. Seeking to understand what it is you are feeling, seeking to understand why do I feel different? Why does my world look different? Why do the things I embraced yesterday no longer seem appealing to me? And, what are these things that I know nothing of that I have a curiosity about? It’s the result of the energy. It’s what it’s doing to you. It’s a beautiful thing. It’s been a long time coming, you understand?

I grew up in the ’60s. Everything was kind of peaceful and then overnight there were peace movements, there were people complaining more vocally, sit-ins, everything was about love and not war. Was that part of the energy we were in that was changing us as we moved into what we call The New Age? Yes. ’Twas a spiritual awakening, which is the result of frequencies intersecting the Earth plane that manifests in the behavior of humankind. You see, this is

what we seek to tell you, not just on this topic you are speaking to us about now, but on all topics. First comes the frequency, then the manifestation of the frequency in the life of the human being. As the frequency is elevated, the divinity begins to resonate with that frequency, it begins to recognize a higher frequency. It begins to embrace that resonance because it is a connection to all that it already knows. This causes a frequential change in the body, which results in a frequential change in the brain, in how you process, in a tactile way, and experience your world. It is a physics principle and it is no less magnificent for being so. Many of you in metaphysics, New Age, whatever you want to call it, whatever the word is today, yes, you want to believe that everything is spiritual. Well, it is spiritual, but that doesn’t make it any less scientific. Is it any less wonderful that an energy would come, and with impartiality, affect all members of the human race? Is that any less spiritual than all of you thinking you’re getting there by yourselves? ’Tis no less spiritual. ’Tis beautiful and a loving gesture from Source. ’Tis the natural order of the progression of the material plane of existence. You can label it however you want. This is how it has always worked and this is how it will always work. And, there will always be those who are the forerunners and see it coming. They can feel it and begin to respond to it. What will be different going  see NEW AGE on p. 20

NEW AGE

forward is that you won’t seek to form the movements as much as you will seek to expand self. It will become less and less important to you to circle the wagons, to form the communities, to have groups of people living together who all believe the same thing. And, really, that’s a fear response to the change. You want to embrace the change and you’re afraid, so you want to be around many, many other people who believe the same thing. That is part of what is going to change. As you come online as individual divine beings, as you understand your individual creative ability, it’s going to matter less and less what anyone else thinks. That is the difference in the fifth dimension. The fifth dimension will have contrast, just as the third, but it will be more nuanced, and it will not be fear-based. It will be contrast that is viewed by divine beings who understand that they can make choices and create whatever they want. They hold a frequency, they create a creation, they look at it, and they decide, “Is this what I was aspiring to create in my life?” They will either say “yes” to that, or they’ll make another choice. It’s going to be more joy-filled and it’s going to be more peaceful, because that is what this energy is doing. It’s changing your perception of the contrast, do you understand? All of you want to believe that you “think” your way into enlightenment. You’ve never thought your way into enlightenment. It doesn’t matter how many books you write or how many wise ones are upon the Earth plane whose words are recorded for infinity. Your enlightenment will always be the result of frequency first and then the manifestation of that in the life of the human being. That is the progression. As you feel the frequency and you respond to it, you’re amplifying it. The fifth-dimensional frequencies are coming in. Is the whole Earth plane responding in a positive way to that? No, but they are all feeling it. That doesn’t mean they’re manifesting it in a way that is uplifting for the human race. For those of you who are, you’re going to be resonating with the fifth dimension and you’re going to be amplifying that frequency because of the resonance. This is a physics principle. This frequency is going to get stronger and stronger and stronger and the manifestation of it is going to be that human beings are living their lives differently than you’re living them now. Just as you are living your lives differently now than in this time that you were referring to. What was happening then? Well, you trusted your government for one. You trusted that if they said that there was supposed to be war, that there should be war. You marched off to die by the millions all over this planet every time your government said 2 0  WWW.EDGEMAGAZINE.NET

there should be war. What happened when the young ones decided, “I’m not willing to die for you anymore?” That was the result of frequency. So, what is happening now? Well, now you are living in the time that was born of that time that you were referring to. Where you don’t trust anyone. You don’t trust your governments, you don’t trust anyone. You don’t trust your media. You don’t trust your education systems. You don’t trust your monetary, economic systems. You don’t trust anything. All of you look at that and you think, “I wish we could go back to a time when we could trust everyone.” No. Do not wish for this. Your eyes are open and you’re starting to understand that the entire human race is creating all these constructs around you. Part of the new energy, part of the New Age, is a new way of perceiving your world. And the higher in frequency you go, the more autonomous each of you will become in your individual belief systems and in your ability to create what you want in your life. But, you will become closer as a human race, and more respectful, and more loving, and more compassionate, because you will resonate and share that fifth-dimensional frequency and that is the way it will manifest in your lives. So, you’re still in a transition and it has been going on for about 200 years now. You have not come out the other side, this time of the ’60s as you say, you’re not really on the other side of that yet. It’s going to be another 10-15 years before you’re going to be able to discern a real shift in the human race, in how your planet operates, in how your governments and your societal structures operate. You’re going to see a more benevolent way of doing things and the reason this will happen is because each of you will begin to function as individual autonomous divine creators. You’ll begin to create something beautiful and that will resonate with everyone else who is creating something beautiful until enough amplitude is realized for the transformation to take hold on a grander scale. That is how it has been. That is how it will always be. It is frequency. The activities that you do will be part of what is changing. So in The New Age you circled the wagons, yes? We are The New Agers and we have to wear our hair different, and we have to dress different, and we have to walk and talk different, and we have to be thumbing our noses at society, and we have to be doing these things. None of those things even matter. Do you think that any of that even matters? All that matters is that you decided to be autonomous. You decided to abandon your programming. That is what really happened and it manifested in a myriad of ways in your lives, just as it always does because this is how frequency works in the life of a human being.

So, how are people different? More of you are now enlightened. And by enlightened, what we mean is that more of you understand that you are divine and you understand that most of the programming that you have experienced in the last 50-100 years is not serving you. That is what you are realizing. There is no one truth for any of you. You’re going to decide “what is truth,” each on his own, each on her own, to embrace what is truth for them and to pursue it. And the creativity, and the love, and the compassion, and all these things that will be born of this will explode all over this planet as soon as you quit cooperating with all the programmed control structures upon the Earth-plane. You all possess the creative ability of Source. There’s nothing stopping you from transforming this entire planet. Is that not a new age, yes?

What you’re saying is whether we call it New Age or metaphysics or something else, it’s all still relevant today? It is still relevant in that it has always been, and it will always be, frequency and the manifestation of it in the life of the human being. It doesn’t matter what you call it. The enlightenment of the human race, the aspiration to live inside of a human body, to exist here, and to dwell in materiality, and to do it at a higher frequency and a finer experience, this will be the experience going forward, yes, and it has always been so. If you knew the cycles that the Earth has gone through, you would see that you have done this many, many times, but never with the help of fifth-dimensional frequencies, and that is what is making it different. This time you’re not going to cycle out of it and destroy yourselves. It’s not going to happen. Now, does this make it different? Well, in some ways, yes, but this too is a manifestation of frequency. When the frequency gets high enough, divine beings begin to resonate, and they come into their natural frequency, their natural character, their natural integrity. You begin to mirror the One who created you and your experiences upon the Earth plane become much more beautiful than they are now. In general, would you say that movements such as The New Age have helped humanity move forward or do they hinder us by the very nature of being a “movement?” There is always the concern that ones begin to identify with other ones that they think are like them and pretty soon whatever they thought was a movement becomes a religion, becomes a dogma, becomes a doctrine. Yes, this does happen and it did happen with The New Age, as well, but it should not bring despair or regret. It’s the nature of the human experience that you would want others to identify with you, and agree with you, and  see NEW AGE on p. 22


A Hermit’s Light

SPIRIT LEAVES

BY JA NET MICHELE R ED FEATHER The essence of the New Age is that it is not a singular belief system. It is by no means just a “passing phase” or “trend” we find ourselves in, for a real evolution in human growth is underway. We are stripping away a long reign of artifice in order to uncover and claim our authentic selves. The term “New Age” has been used fondly and pejoratively in equal measure. Proponents advocate with fondness that we have ushered in an era wherein people are proclaiming, “I am more spiritual than religious.” Critics rail in the pejorative, “There is nothing new under the sun.” There is a kernel of truth in the skeptical invocation of this biblical aphorism. “The New Age is not new,” explains Cedric Red Feather, with wistful kindness in his smile. “The truths people are embracing today were with our ancestors long ago. Indigenous people had access to what we now refer to as ‘existing multi-dimensionally.’ It was natural for them to communicate with humans, plants, animals, sea creatures, birds and Spirits.” He punctuated his thought, adding, “What we call new is really just a rediscovery of very ancient truths.” His view is refreshing. For years, we have anticipated The Great Shift and listened to prophecies of doom and gloom. Humankind held its collective breath as 2012 arrived like a speed boat and departed like a luxury liner. As seekers, many of us have already entered into the expanded awareness, having

a

found ourselves turned off by the fire, brimstone, money and polemics of organized religion. Many have opted to leave behind fear-driven, hierarchic settings in the quest for more personalized ways of answering life’s tougher questions. There is nothing wrong with religion, per se. Whatever brings a person closer to the energy that created the Universe is sacred and fine. We do not wish to judge anyone nor weigh the relative value of the multitude of different paths available. An emergent truth, though, is that the essence of spirituality is freedom; you cannot regulate or legislate spirituality. We were all created with free will. No matter how many centuries were spent burning and torturing dissenters, ridiculing and punishing independent thinkers, suppressing and censoring creative people, the pure white flame of free souls will, at last, singe and dissolve the jackets of constraint. People will gradually find a clear path to peace, in their own way and in their own time. There are those parts of

the collective consciousness who cling tenaciously to duality. Some folks just are more comfortable dividing the world into light and dark. The Higher Beings of Light who are assisting the Earth with its fast-paced transition are very compassionate. They are helping us turn up the rheostat on our internal light, in order that we may outshine those darknesses we encounter from time to time. Part of the shift taking place, per Cedric Red Feather, involves “a remembrance of who we truly are.” External differences are merely that. Race, class, gender, orientation, wealth, title and position mean very little in terms of who we really are, in essence. Religious beliefs and political positions will eventually lose their grip as divisive forces. Already, people are behaving more kindly in everyday encounters. Individuals of high integrity are rescuing animals and healing them with loving compassion. More of what we call “news” is starting to report more positive events from around the world. Positive intention and non-violence both take time, and that time is upon us. True wisdom is not spawned of sensationalism and fear: it develops out of love and compassion. Human consciousness has received its wakeup call. Many are tapping into our inherent abilities as empaths, psychics, mediums and healers. The way to access these innate propensities is simple. In surrendering fear, we create an opening for the miraculous and synchronous. All that is of the light finds a ready passageway within a loving person. We become as large, empty lantern boxes into  see HERMIT’S on p. 22

NEW AGE

continued from p. 20

there needs to be some rules, and this is what we do, and this is what you do as human beings. It’s a survival instinct. We don’t look at it as being either good or bad. There are times it is not useful and this is part of what is going to be changing going forward. You’re moving in an energy where each of you wishes to behave more as an autonomous divine being. To not be held down by your families, and your spouses, and your society, and your religions, and your governments. To just be as you are and to be free. Free to create the life that you want to create. Without the hindrance of the perception of someone holding you back, because it’s only a perception. They don’t have any real control over divine beings. None of these structures do. You just have not yet realized how powerful you really are. And that takes some time, because it needs to manifest in the experience of human beings that they can recognize their own power and feel more comfortable and then up-level to the next level as well, you see? This is how it works. Do movements hinder you? Well, forming groups and having agreed-upon principles and all of this, we all have to dress the same, you know. You talk about the ’60s and, you know, everyone became what you call a hippie, yes? Well, were all the hippies kind of dressed alike? How’s that any different than what the rest of society is doing? ’Twas important to them to identify themselves as such, but they sought very quickly to identify what is hippie and then they all followed the rules, did they not? ’Twas not such a time of freedom and non-conformity as you all think that it was. From our perspective it was just more of the same expressing itself differently, thumbing its nose at the programming of the Earth plane. And this is excellent.

But they very quickly fell into a very expected behavior and value system of what their lives should look like if they are the hippie, yes? You see, sometimes you cannot escape your judgments as human beings until your frequency gets high enough so you genuinely do not care what’s going on with everyone else, because you’re so busy creating wonderful things for yourself. That will continue to happen. We don’t see it as anything to despair over, but you do need to be cognizant that movements very quickly turn into religions, and by religions we mean doctrine and dogma, agreed upon standards that one needs to follow in order to fit into the group, yes? There were ones during this time coming online to be channels, as our channel, to be psychics, all of these things, and you even judge one another. “Well, this one is true and real and that one is not,” yes? Who are any of you to judge any of that? If it doesn’t resonate with you, move on to the next thing. No one needs your approval about anything. And it has never been needed. But you seek with these movements, no matter what they are, and no matter what you want to call them, to have a group that agrees with one another that there is a standard and there is some kind of a rule or a doctrine to be followed for one to be acceptable to the rest of the group. This is what is changing. The New Age is as all ages, is it not? ’Tis a result of frequency. ’Tis a result of aspects of God coming to live within their own creations to have an experience of a dimension that they are creating in a tactile way by living within the materiality that they themselves have created. That alone is a wondrous thing. There are going to be different frequencies that are going to manifest in different ways. You’re going to call them movements, you’re going to have words for them, and that’s not going to stop any time soon.

What we would entreat you to focus on is the frequency of it. Make sure that if you’re going to change, that you change into a finer thing. As the frequency of the planet rises as a result of the photon band that you are traveling through, aspects of your divinity, of your multidimensionality are going to come online. And as that happens, your world will begin to transform, because all of you will be having new experiences and you will be expanding what is acceptable. You will be expanding your thinking around your perceptions. You will decide it no longer serves you to be living in high contrast, but that it serves you to have many options and to make choices. It’s still contrast, it’s just more productive. You will begin to feel love and compassion for one another. You will begin to see that the fear you have been living in has not been serving you and you will begin to transform those structures upon the Earth plane. You have done this more than once, you will do it more than once, and you will do it again. Doesn’t matter what you call it, it’s a cycle. And it is the way of this plane of existence. This is how it works. We love you and we love you and we will see you soon. a

that. In a nutshell, that is what the work does. Tapping does that, inner child meditation and soul meditations do that, Akashic records gives us a context, tapping then neutralizes it, and then TRE is that final component where it allows our body to release it so we can really be free — vibrationally free to expand. a

When that’s activated, the post-traumatic stress from each of those time frames spreads through time and all of a sudden in 2018 we’re reacting to current situations in ways that the current situation does not warrant.

The primary means of your expansion upon the earth plane is your relationships.” How does relationship happen? Via The Law of Attraction, of course. The question

is not whether we would attract relationships, but whether we would enjoy them. Learn not only how to attract the relationships you want but how to transform those you’re already in! Saturday 9am-Noon at DoubleTree by Hilton, Minneapolis – Park Place. Register at Kellythebo. com/01-12-2019-minneapolis/ January 14 – April 8 – A Graceful Journey: The Transformation of the Feminine | Online: What would it be like to live in a world where the feminine is celebrated? A world where the little girl and the aged woman alike understand and appreciate the contribution that only they can make. A world that lays down its expectations of a gender in favor of the power of the individual. A world filled with unique and wonderful women bringing balance where it’s needed most. Join us! Online, Monday Nights, 6:30 – 8:30pm Central. Register at Kellythebo.com/course-a-graceful-journey-thetransformation-of-the-feminine/ January 16 – February 6 – When Bad Things Happen: The Dark Side of the Law of Attraction | Online: We ask ourselves over and over, “How did I let this happen again?” The cycle of self-recrimination churns on as we struggle to understand how to escape a painful pattern of challenging circumstances. It doesn’t have to be that way. How do we escape the pattern? We learn to work with the Law of Attraction instead of against it. Join us for this workshop and transform your life! Online, Wednesdays, 7-8:15pm.
