Life is meant for living in harmony with all there is ― forever as one creation of a loving God. To live in harmony requires choosing to be in harmony. To consistently choose harmony requires wanting to unlearn disharmony in the present moment. Within each moment of this awareness is our equality. ― Alice Yeager
On a deep level I know that we are all meant to learn to live in harmony. I am well aware however that it can seem very difficult to believe that is possible during difficult challenges. Right now for me the challenges include lyme disease, chronic pain issues and unexpected disturbing events in recent years. These have left me feeling as though harmony only occurs in artwork and music in my life. As a creative visual artist harmony can mean colors or shapes that blend smoothly or appear balanced. Musical harmony compared to disharmony is also easy to recognize. Disharmony can feel like an uneasy gut level kinesthetic sense of uncertainty such as “butterflies” or feeling “out of sorts”. As noted in my announcements disharmony has also included email unreliability with weeks spent on customer support. How we live our day-to-day lives can also clearly demonstrate the difference between harmony and disharmony, especially in our communications that range from anger to smiles and sadness to joy. I often work with symbols as a professional artist, intuitive and teacher. To me the symbolism of unreliable communications has been akin to feeling out of synch with my whole self. When I am in synch, I experience a great deal of synchronicity and flow in my life. When the synchronicities do not occur on a regular basis the comparison to disturbing, disrupting communications becomes obvious. Whenever I give my will over to outside influences of disharmony I allow an unawareness of the harmony of my life. My higher self, expresses with a caring spirit of inclusive harmony whereas my lower self fixates on exclusive separate interests. All of my thoughts have the potential to reestablish harmonious connection with my higher self and the whole. I believe God is never truly disconnected or in disharmony with us. It only seems so whenever feelings of discontent, aloneness or vulnerably cause me to feel out of synch with the whole. As someone who grew up never thinking about whether I had a higher self (a.k,a whole Self) to be in or out of synch with, I feel fortunate to have had several out-ofbody experiences in my adult life that provided me an understanding that we are more then our bodily form. Each out-of-body experience has offered a demonstration that the mind does not cease nor requires a physical brain to think with or a bodily form to communicate through. Our communicative mind can think thoughts of limitation though – without ever truly being limited. Thoughts that travel unimpeded by the seeming limitations of space and time can seem to defy reality as we know it. This communication can begin with the conscious awareness of our thinking mind. As a thinking mind we have a willful ability to turn it “on” or “off” so to speak as awake (conscious) or asleep (unconsciousness) thinking. We have the ability to either allow receptivity or block communications. To block does not mean completely stopping all communication. It is impossible to be completely cut off from my Self and God. My most remarkable higher Self communications occurred as three different out-ofbody experiences. As unexpected events in 1997, 2000 and 2005 I feel fortunate that they did not happen because of an accident or health crisis. Those usually fall into the category of “near-death or “after life” experiences” that can include an experience of dying and then coming back to talk about the experience. My out-of body experiences not only do not represent a near dying or death experience they were instead remarkable ineffable moments of the complete oneness of life. As extraordinary progressively consciousness-expanding experiences each one demonstrated that life is not bound by space and time. They also demonstrated the illusion of death to me.
The awareness that life is uncontainable, eternal and infinite is in contrast to what most of us come to believe. My three out-of body experiences demonstrated to me that we are not finitely containable in bodily form. Our thoughts are as free as our willful mind that can never be containable nor completely isolated from the Whole. Thoughts can travel outside the body without mechanical means. This awareness also need not be dependent on leaving the body behind. It can come through insightful visions, inner intuitive sense of other times, places and impressions and premonitions. Like many who have experienced miracles as what some would call divine interventions they can seem to “defy reality” and result in redefinitions of reality itself. It becomes difficult to explain to others that the body does not define nor represent who we. Unless you have experienced being alive, still able to think and move about without a body it all can seem like a fantasy, daydream or just theory. Despite being shown a broader perspective that is vastly more infinite then my day-today journey it has not suddenly meant that my life is no longer full of bumpy rides and splashing mud puddles. Nor has it resulted in the clouds of uncertainty suddenly lifted away or every disturbing sound replaced with quietude. Serene moments can still be all too easily replaced by disruptive unsettling events. This includes physical discomforts that can demandingly call for my attention like a loud clanging bell or screeching noise. The clamor of the world still includes disquieting experiences. It can be especially disquieting when long-standing supports are recognized as illusions that can dissolve away into nothingness or no longer be trustable in the same way. Fortunately bridges over trouble waters and roads through deep valleys happen! Directional adjustments and steering corrections also happen. These adjustments can serve to reinforce the need for an even straighter path to the narrow gate within where serenity and peacefulness abide. Staying vigilant to not be pulled into the ruts of habitual reactiveness can take great self-discipline and courage to remain steadfast. This can also include listening to the soft gentle melodic harmonious tones of my whole Self. When I listen intently to my whole Self (aka our Higher Power or Holy Spirit as inner voice for God) it consistently communicates the importance of gentleness as the quiet witness to my own thoughts and silent observing mind. My whole Self then serves as my inner peace guide, teacher, interpreter and observant silent witness to the world of events and interactions. As my constant communication link with the Whole (God) it is keenly more aware that we are all more then what we seem. My whole Self can at times seem limited, blocked and thwarted by the lower self (ego) to the point of not believing in it. Fortunately our shared creative Source (yet another name for God) is never limited. As the infinite intelligence of the one Mind we all share, It thinks through us. It’s thinking is infinite, eternal, and one with all there is – whether in a body or not.
May a new peace be scripted in your heart co-authored with God as – Peace Nouvella™.
