In the Wilderness of Chaos ~

A personal Story

LIGHT AND MATTER Paintings by Petra

Welcome to the 18th issue.

Haiku

The winds of change are upon us as the summer seems to cool towards fall and is gone as quickly as it came. This weather phenomenon reflects the changes that are occurring on many levels. Here today, gone tomorrow. Some days it feels hard to keep up as we attempt to control what we do. I have discovered that the more I use control the less I actually get done. When I can allow myself to be in the energy of wanting to do something and then focusing on the steps of that task, time seems to stand still and a lot more is accomplished. Now if I can only remember to be in this discerning state when I feel pressured to do those things I want to get done. More changes are happening for SOUL*AR Excursions as horses and owners are discovering the value of the healing arts, and, I am now able to provide Be the Creator, services in the Coquitlam area. See below for details. Be the Observer, Happy Labour Day Weekend.

Blessings and Hugs, ♥Petra

Enjoy Your Creations.

In The Wilderness was it I was going for? Before of Chaos~ A Personal Story you know it life has taken on its own version based on the fears and we forget what really The Art of Illusion matters, what it is that you really want to be. We forget to be in We often hear that life is an joy creating new wondrous illusion. Have you ever memories and illusions. The questioned what that means? thing is is to know what illusion From this concept many people you are creating. A cat does this have come to interpret that life very well. It knows it cannot eat is meaningless, or what is the the toy mouse, but it goes after point. If you are one of these, it, just as if it is a ask yourself if real hunt. We there is no point, actually do this why were you really well too, but created. How can we forget it isn’t you function real. without some sense But you say of a realty. Is not we are real. We illusion another have flesh, we have reality? Perhaps bone, we have the real question is feelings, and we how to keep the need to eat. Yes illusions straight so that is the reality we live in, but that they don’t overlap and it is not real. Energy is real, but create confusion in the current we perceive it as myth. Yet it is reality. I think the isness does a all around us, in us, we use it, we pretty good job at that. We on have a science about it. True, the other hand begin to think but we see it as something too much and forget what really outside of us, rather than it is matters. We create illusions what creates us and everything about who we are, what we that exists, no matter what the want, why we want it, what dimension. Like the ant, we others think, what others want, cannot see what is greater/ how can I get that, who do I go larger than us. We (cont page 5) to, why would I go to, now what

World Reflexology Week September 23rd to 29th, 2012

The Body is Designed for Movement Where Do You Want To Be? From the moment we are conceived our bodies are growing and changing. At that point we have little control at what happens to us. As we age we learn the art of movement with our bodies as well in space and time. Along with these physical changes are emotional and mental growth. Like the baby deer who is now on his own at times, we encounter experiences that shape who we are. We can exercise to maintain a semblance of how we wish to appear, but there are parameters Baby Deer is growing up. with which we can work in. There are ones we cannot In Your Body change but there are others that have been self imposed In Your Mind In Your Motions in some format that can be reshaped. If we avoid these we continue to perpetuate their existence. By In Your Spirit acknowledging their presence, that is be present with In Your Soul them, then we can free ourselves from their control and In Your Life move in new directions.

JOURNEY INTO THE SOUL OF YOU September 1, 2012

S O UL* A R E X CUR S ION S simply see it as a force of nature. There is another form of illusion creating and that is with respect to perception, communication and actions. As individuals we see the world that is built by the perceptions we create to view, understand and function in the world around us. We don’t always accurately see things as they are. Many things are going on around us, but we only pay attention to those things we perceive that we think matters to us. Usually it has to do with the matter of survival. This was easier to keep straight when life was simpler. It matters to accurately see the tiger coming at us. Now we are so wrapped up in our illusions and the toys we create to distract us from “real life” that we don’t even see the bus coming. For example having our eyes locked on our hand held device while walking down the street. The other illusions are much subtler and come upon us out of fear. To really understand fear, one must look at all the attitudes as fear is the underlying dynamic. Fear is also the illusion. When we see something for what it really is, we are free from fear. In this state we can enjoy life, no matter what is occurring. Do not confuse happiness with joy. They are entirely uniquely different and come from different sources. Happiness is a perception, where as joy is a state. Happiness has an polar opposite but joy just is. Your happiness is dependent on your belief on what makes you happy. Joy is not an illusion, it exists no matter what is happening, or with respect to your perceptions about what is occurring.

Symptoms of the Shift

I have been sent this lovely piece about the shift that is occurring. It is something I have thought about putting together. In reading this one, I realize I have an different perspective and have altered the piece to reflect my understanding about the cause of the shift. If you would like to see the original version in full go to Source : http://enlightenedawareness.wetpaint.com/page/ Ascension+Symptoms . . See More Take what fits for you and may it help you smooth out the rough spots. If you are interested in reducing the bumps of this amazing transitional time, see a healing artist and experience the changes as an observer rather than as a victim. I have written my words in purple to replace those that reflect the original concepts as to why we are experiencing this shift. Happy full moon... Are you experiencing any of these symptoms? Do you feel something has fundamentally changed in your life? Do you feel the 'SHIFT'? Symptoms 1. Feeling as though you are in a pressure cooker or in intense energy; feeling stress. Remember, you are adjusting to a change in vibration and you will eventually adjust. Old patterns, behaviors and beliefs are also being pushed to the surface. There is a lot going on inside of you. 2. A feeling of disorientation; not knowing where you are; a loss of a sense of place. We are not in Will &Power anymore, as we have almost completed the process of moving into Love/Discernment Energy. 3. Unusual aches and pains throughout different parts of your body. Your physical, emotional and mental bodies are being rearranged into different configurations. 4. Waking at night between 2 and 4 a.m. Much is going on in your dream state. You can't be there for long lengths of time and need a break. This is also the 'cleansing and releasing' hour. 5. Memory loss. A great abundance of short term memory loss and only vague remembrances of your past. You are in more than one dimension at a time, and going back and forth as part of the transition, you are experiencing a 'disconnect'. Also, your past is part of the Old, and the Old is forever gone. Being in the Now is the way of the New World. 6. 'Seeing' and 'hearing' things. You are experiencing different dimensions as you transition, all according to how sensitive you are and how you are wired.

M IND * BO D Y * S O UL * H A R MONIZA T ION

JOURNEY INTO THE SOUL OF YOU September 1, 2012

S O UL* A R E X CUR S ION S 7. Loss of identity. You try to access the Old you, but it is no longer there. You may not know who you are looking at in the mirror. You have cleared much of your old patterns and are now embodying an energy that acts more like a glue, a holding a part but still joined rather than one than works through force or control. All is in order, You are okay. 8. Feeling 'out of body'. You may feel as though someone is talking, but it is not you. This is our natural defence mechanism of survival when we are under acute stress or feeling traumatized or out of control. Your body is going through a lot and you may not want to be in it. It passes. 9. Periods of deep sleeping. You are resting from all the acclimating and are integrating, as well as building up for the next phase. 10. Heightened sensitivities to your surroundings. Crowds, noise, foods, TV, other human voices and various other stimulations are barely tolerable. You also overwhelm very easily and become easily overstimulated. You are becoming differently aware. Know that you will adjust. 11. You don't feel like doing anything. You are in a rest period, 'rebooting'. Your body knows what it needs. In addition, when you begin functioning in the new realms, 'doing' and 'making things happen' becomes obsolete as the New Energy is about participation, joining together out of a sense of passion. Be clear about what you want, take the steps that allow you to create that and enjoy the process. 12. An intolerance for others attempting to control or force you to do what they want, or think in their way, (reflected in conversations, attitudes, societal structures, healing modalities, etc). They literally creat an disturbance within you. This does not need to affect you. You are in a different vibration and your energies are no longer in alignment. What is happening, we are a long for the ride; to 'be' and create the New. 13. A loss of desire for food. Your body is adjusting to a new, higher state of being. Also, part of you does not want to be here anymore in the Old. 14. A sudden disappearance of friends, activities, habits, jobs and residences. You are evolving beyond what you used to be, and these people and surroundings no longer match your vibration. The end of the shift is almost here. 15. You absolutely cannot do certain things anymore. When you try to do your usual routine and activities, it feels downright awful. You are evolving beyond what you used to be, and these people and surroundings no no longer match your vibration. 16. Days of extreme fatigue. Your body is losing density and going through

JOURNEY INTO THE SOUL OF YOU September 1, 2012

S O UL* A R E X CUR S ION S intense restructuring. This loss of density is true to the significant reduction of Will & Power Energies which have a correlation with calcium and bone. Physical exercise is even more important to keep up bone mass. Do not confuse this into thinking you need to take more calcium as it won't be taken up without the proper amount of exercise. 17. A need to eat often along with what feels like attacks of low blood sugar. Weight gain, especially in the abdominal area. A craving for protein. The chemistry in the brain that tells you are full, had enough to eat has changed. Also we require less food than we think we do, and more exercise to use it up. However, weight gain with an inability to loose it no matter what you do is one of the most typical experiences. Trust that your body knows what it is doing. 18. Experiencing emotional ups and downs; weeping. Our emotions are our outlet for release, and we are releasing a lot. Old patterns are coming to the fore front to be accepted and deactivated. 19. A wanting to go Home, as if everything is over and you don't belong here anymore. The veil that allows us to experience the reality we create in, is thinner and allows us to feel closer to Source. This is an exciting time on our planet and corner of our universe as many cycles are currently at there shifting point. Many souls are attracted to our planet with the abundance of changing energies and potentially creative opportunities. Many are leaving only to return before the things smooth out again. 20. Feeling you are going insane, or must be developing a mental illness of some sort. You are rapidly experiencing several dimensions as a window is opening for the different universes are shifting their frequencies at the same time. Much is available to you now. You are just not used to it. Your awareness has been heightened and your barriers are gone. This will pass as you climatize and learn to function in the Love Discernment Energy. Those that are born after 2000 are completely in tune with the new frequency. 21. Anxiety and panic. Your ego's concept of itself has been altered and is in a state of fear. Your system is also on overload. Things are happening to you that you may not understand. You are also losing behaviour patterns of a old vibration that you developed for survival in the old world. This may make you feel vulnerable and powerless. These patterns and behaviours you are losing are not needed in the new world. This will pass and you will eventually feel so much love, safety and unity if you make the necessary adjustments. Just wait. 22. Depression. The outer world may not be in alignment with the altered

S O UL* A R E X CUR S ION S vibrational you. It doesn't feel so good out there. You are also releasing fear based energies and you are 'seeing' through them. Hang in there. 23. Vivid, wild and sometimes violent dreams. You are releasing many, many lifetimes of different vibrational energy. Many are now reporting that they are experiencing beautiful dreams. Your dream state will eventually improve and you will enjoy it again. Some experience this releasing while awake. My mother commented one day that she believed I was having nightmares in the daytime. 24. Night sweats and hot flashes. Your body is 'heating' up as it burns off residue. 25. Your plans suddenly change in mid-stream and go in a completely different direction. You are allowing to be more present/connected with your soul and balancing out your energy. It usually feels great in this new direction, as your soul knows more than you do. It is breaking your 'rut' choices and vibration. 26. You have created a situation that seems like your worst nightmare, with many 'worst nightmare' aspects to it. When you allow, your Soul is guiding you into 'stretching' into aspects of yourself where you were lacking, or into 'toning down' aspects where you had an overabundance. Your energy is just balancing itself. Finding your way to peace through this situation is the opportunity you have set up for yourself. This is your journey, and your soul would not have set it up if you weren't ready. You are the one who finds your way out and you will. Looking back, you will have gratitude for the experience and be a different person.
