PART I

                                            First Responders Prepare

It is the nature of our collective experience here on earth, to be disconnected from Source. It takes a conscious choice to re-establish this lost connection once we realize the extent of our isolation, longing for purpose and the fleeting impermanence of the material realm, without it.   We are all given a fail-safe guide to re-establish this connection in the form of a Higher-self, if and when we choose to seek it.  Through millions of incarnations, humans have been cultivating their individual and now, collective will to be reunited to Source energy.  While more of an undercurrent before 2012, we are now witnessing the coming together of connected Souls worldwide through the confluence of external frequency shifts, an increase in global communication and a population awakening within to their humanity and capacity for Love, as never before.


Human consciousness is currently stirring as we rapidly approach a tipping-point of global proportions.  This conscious awakening of our hearts is responding to the approach of a galactic Wave and that Event is aligning us to a new paradigm and dimension.  Our dense physical 3rd dimension is shifting frequency as we migrate across the 4th to an etheric 5th dimensional realm of Love and Light.  While the 3rd dimension has lost its ability to be accommodating or sustainable for the majority of humanity, it has however, ultimately served us as a Petri-dish to grow our individual will to an awakened state of Love and personal sovereignty. These are the exact qualities that are essential if we, as a society, are to be self-sufficient and in service to each other in the new paradigm, where we no longer compete for resources but share them.


Finding ourselves being challenged to cross this ‘sea’ of the 4th dimension to a new shore of energetic purity requires us to purge our mental and emotional toxins.  Embracing this challenge with belief and certainty that the dark energies that are coming up for us to experience are coming up only to be purged, will help us to consciously examine and focus on them as we release them for the last time. For as we consciously release our mental and emotional baggage, we simultaneously raise our light frequency, which is a prerequisite for this crossing.


Here I am reminded of the analogy of body surfing, where the swimmer sees a large wave approaching.  If they do nothing, when the wave hits, it will toss them and violently plunge them into the sand. If they see the wave coming and choose to begin swimming with all their might towards the shore, before it arrives, when the wave reaches them, it will lift them and gracefully deliver them above the wave, to shore.


 And so, it is with each of us whose inner calling is to be at the forefront of this paradigm shift.  When we commit ourselves to shed all that is unloving and dark, the vestiges of the old paradigm of fear, lack, competition and judgment, partner with our Higher-self for its guidance in all we do, self-nurture to generate a higher frequency light body, and maintain a commanding awareness of our energetic presence and protect its boundaries, we are then in harmony and alignment with the new paradigm, capable of facilitating others to awaken.  If we are warriors of Light, or First Responders, we must be sound inside and out before the galactic wave arrives.  When we each achieve this level of mastery, our empowered presence will truly catalyze and stabilize this global awakening as it unfolds.


In order to discuss the protection of our boundaries and our integrity as a force of Love and Light let us expand our concept of ourselves from only having a physical body to include seeing ourselves in terms of consciousness and energy as well, as we adjust to the non-physical territories of the uncharted 4th and 5th dimensions.


The energy systems of the body, while being mapped and mastered by ancient eastern cultures remains somewhat foreign to western culture because it is the realm of the unseen, the energy-based underpinnings of our existence.  It is accessed from our consciousness by our feelings and our imagination for to see energy, one feels it, and to wield it, one harnesses their imagination with intention, focus and certainty. We can effectively contain, release energy and direct it, all through our imagination. In the physical dimension, lifting a heavy weight is difficult, while in the spiritual realm it’s as easy as imagining it.   The tools of imagination and feeling are ways to sense and release other peoples’ negative energy in our field as well as our own. For our feelings and thoughts are rooted in this unseen realm of energy.


As humans, we are all equipped with a complete electromagnetic energy system of ‘chakras’ or central clearing houses for the various power-centers in the body. Their locations ride from the tail-bone, along the spine to the top of our heads.  Below the heart, they relate to the physical and above the heart, they relate to the spiritual.  Each power-center also corresponds to its own protective layer which altogether form the ‘aura’ around the body. So, now let’s proceed to discuss our topic of our boundaries with the vocabulary of energy to gain more conscious awareness of ourselves as spirit.


                               The Event-First Responders are you Prepared?

                                                            PART II


Maintaining our personal boundaries are how we stay sound, healthy and empowered.  Our boundaries are a metaphor for our aura, the energetic immune system that keeps us functional, comfortable, and operating in the “black” so we can shine our light for others.  Our aura is an oval shaped energetic filter and shield that encompasses our entire body.  This boundary is managed by our awareness from the crown chakra at the top of our heads. When we are healthy we consciously patrol this field like a border to protect our inner sanctuary or safe space.  Our Crown chakra not only acts defensively towards outward threat but also projects an outward signal of how we want to be seen and treated – much like a scent or beacon. It is here that we begin to make the exodus from dis-empowerment to empowerment, for in many cases, human-beings, especially sensitive heart-centered people have a protective shell that has been compromised.


When we, as First Responders, awaken to our Source within and feel the call to Love and Light, we realize just how differently we are aligned than those around us.  Our interior is passionate of 5th dimensional vibrations, while our environment is steeped in lower shadow.  Not only do we feel different from others, but are often victimized and swept away by abrasive behaviors from others that distort our self-worth and power, and leave us broken.  This is a common hurdle for a light-worker in that a requirement to be capable of leading others to the light-within, is having the gift of extreme sensitivity.  This sensitivity must not cripple but rather, be guarded, knowing that you are enlightened to love, you are a vital grounding force on a mission, and you are keenly connected to Source.  Once certain of your importance you no longer take your cues from those around you, but are directed from within by the inspiration from the God of your heart.  And from this inner directive you will be guided on your mission.  Let us also remember to distinguish those who are truly inspired by our light from those who are not ready to begin their awakening as the Universe will tend to them according to Divine right timing- we are not to do the heavy lifting!


A very clear example of this initial compromising of our boundaries is in the innocence and vulnerable light of a little child, exposed to the over powering behaviors of adults.  While young, we are not confident in our understandings, and often defer to adults, who can be damaged themselves.  In many cases we do not realize what effect this has on us as we mature causing us to remain uncertain, ashamed and at times victimized.  This is the case when our energetic boundaries are operating in adulthood on settings that were dialed-down during childhood for reasons of survival, (like not expressing our needs, calling out bad behavior or simply not being able to stand up to abuse).  When functioning on these settings we unwittingly place ourselves in harm’s way and send out signals and respond in ways that attract these same abusive behaviors from those around us.


If our protective settings are not updated as we evolve past these early childhood situations, we leave the old sign over the door, drawing more of the same unwanted behaviors from others. Instead of guarding the borders of our boundaries from our crown, where our authority could assure safety, we never venture up there to stand guard, but instead remain ineffectively stuck in the vulnerable emotional center of the second chakra or gut where we allowed the toxins from others in to dismantle our well-being.


The distorting limitations and perceptions of our early programming is much like the example of an elephant. Chained in its infancy, it can grow to such strength as an adult to easily break that chain, but who will never attempt it because of the unexamined and untested foundation of its initial reasoning.  Listed below are some of the programs that can compromise our boundaries:

Invalidation, physical and mental abuse, neglect, abandonment, over-nurturing, co-dependence, expectations of others, sexual identity, racism, blame, trauma, success and failure, guilt, fear, trust, cultural, religious, and educational programing, performance standards, rejection, loss, ideals of beauty, health, money, programing to hide our light, laughter, or our being unique… and this is to name just a few.


If or when we reach a point in our life where we can no longer ignore these precarious settings of our boundaries or the crisis situations they create we can choose to free ourselves from victimization and realize we are no longer disconnected from the power of our Source within, the Higher-self who can help us break that chain from child-hood reasoning by simply committing to daily meditation. 


It is with this simple act of our will, that we open a path from victim-hood to empowerment.  As we eventually develop a loving partnership with this immortal aspect of ourselves, (our Higher-self) we finally gain clarity of who we really arenot a child, not a broken shell, not a victim, but a mortal aspect of our Soul who has partially dis-connected from its Source.   Choosing to re-connect to our Higher-self or Source by daily meditation will lead us to self-heal.  As we release pain, and form a bond to our true self, we grow confident in our actual Divinity and eventually assume the posturing of our larger persona and effectively protect it with a boundary. No longer assuming the posture of a frightened uninformed child, you can begin to expand with practice to be connected and aligned to your heart, which is your Divine essence, your original self.  The mind can be misled but the connection to your heart, is eternal and cannot if you look to it for guidance.  This is important because until you re-establish your true identity, you cannot be an effective light of Love for others. If you take the time to really heal and remove the misperceptions or clouds that block your sun, the warmth of your light will return and be life-giving to all you encounter.


So how was this dis-connection from our Divinity formed and how is the misperception of our self-worth being sustained?  When over-powered as a child through various degrees of unconscious behavior or even abuse from others, we mistakenly believe the PROJECTIONS of the caregivers, siblings, teachers, relatives, etc., (who were ironically victimized by others themselves) who may have intimidated us as children.


Projections are a very convincing delivery system, usually coupled with anger, ridicule, sarcasm, blame, shame, etc. and are believable to someone unprepared to ‘consider the source’ and their Source.  What is being projected from abusive people is the toxic energy from their own abuse.  Whether these projections are onto an innocent child or that child grown to maturity, they are not TRUTH.  Not the truth of who you are -your Higher-self – an immortal individualized “ember” of Source itself.


If you can identify with who you really are and wield that from your knowing you will not allow a breach of that boundary – and how you do that is knowing with certainty from your crown chakra that – ANY PROJECTION THAT IS NOT LOVING – IS FALSE.  This is the key.  What you know to be a powerfully delivered falsehood is just a projection of the deliverer’s own feelings of themselves.  From there, it is for you to not allow that toxic message into your inner boundaries, for if you believe it in any way, you will suffer the breach. In truth, unlike passing a hot potato, people who project their misery onto others, never diminish their own pain and suffering.


Let me just say here, that if someone is in need of communicating their truth, or requesting you to consider their point of view, you can accept that, if it is lovingly or respectfully delivered.  What I am referring to as not being acceptable is abusive, unloving communication.  When people communicate with love, they do not accuse, assume or blame, they are speaking their truth from their heart for you to consider.  We, as individual Souls or embers of the original creator are given and sustained by our own personal dimension.  Each Soul’s dimension is unique and like a computer, functions similarly to others, but not the same. When we think we can make assumptions based on how we function and what motivates us, which is often the cause of projection from others, it leads to judgments of others that are unfounded and undeserved.


When we are clear on the damaging nature of projections, we are eligible to assume the protector role of our own boundaries. To start let us embrace the truth that we have never been worthy of being treated with abuse, blame, abandonment, invalidation, etc., but by their repeated re-enforcement as children and then subsequently as adults, we become programmed to feel, think, and behave like a victim.  From there we can learn the difference between what is acceptable behavior and what is not.  Here, I’m referring to healthy, life affirming human interaction.  Abuse stems from fear, while respect and kindness stem from love. When it is not loving, we have a reason and right to walk away when abuse is happening.  This includes refusing to accept the toxins of other’s unloving statements or behavior, believing their accusations have any validity or hold any truth about you.


These upgrades in our self-worth and self-love all stem from the simple understanding that we are all connected to Source within – our hearts original identity.  Once we are strong on this point we will be capable in having the resolve to be tested multiple times, which is required for our newly laid boundaries to solidify and then we must also consistently communicate our new-found standards to others who breach these boundaries. The more we work with the Higher-self in meditation the more we will start feeling into its Parental Awareness and Authority to lend its personal protection to our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Here, armed with the certainty that we are now connected to our larger aspect- Divine Love we are worthy to extend a more expansive comfort zone- knowing we can trust ourselves to clearly see and enforce our discernment of Truth from falsehood.


Once we can uphold our boundaries, when any breach does occur and we want to release the toxins it harbors, we can simply use the tools of feeling and imagination to restore our sanctuary.  First, we can identify the toxic energy by “feeling it”, and then in meditation, using our visualizations, certainty and breath- to inhale into the pain and release this energy on the exhale.  This will restore our light and our well-being.  For we first heal the spirit and the spirit then heals the body.   From there, we learn to work with others in loving and empowered ways to create new paths to freedom and fulfillment.  We all have a right to protect our well-being while honoring the rights of others.  Creating a timeline that moves us toward a life of inner fulfillment and well-being is as simple as making choices that support these qualities within us.  A metaphor to help understand how we create new timelines is the following example of an outgrown relationship-


If we realize we are unhappy in a relationship and we can no longer abide in it, we would start to make choices to move away from that state of unhappiness.  We might begin by first talking about it, then moving out, perhaps staying with a friend for a while, then moving to a different town, job, a new relationship, etc.  After a year or two, in a completely new and better life, we can look back at that old relationship, knowing that our old partner is still alive and in the same place.  We could, in theory, still be there now but because we created a different timeline by making a series of better choices, we no longer live in that world.


This is how we are moving to the timeline of a love-based planet from a world based on power-abuses, self-service and inequality.  We can also move to a new timeline in relation to our individual inner needs, our happiness, and our empowered functioning by making better choices based on the new awareness of who we truly are – a heart-centered warrior, and upholding a sanctuary of awareness to protect it.
