Men o pause : Freedom

“No longer do I bleed

Nor children bear

An unseen enigma

That arouses fear

But listen closely

When I say these words

I’m now more powerful

With a scream that

Pierces the veil as

I grab hold of a potency

You’ll never see coming

Ignore me, berate me

But don’t turn your back on me for

I’m rising into a power

You can’t even imagine

Much less see or understand

You’ll beg for my days of bleeding

My days of fertility

My days of youth and motherhood

For those you could control

Too late, those parts are

Transitioning and destined

To be held in the past with my old life

I am a new woman becoming

A woman who holds

Her wise blood within

And with that comes a wisdom

And power that should send

Chills through you as

I lift my skirts and let lose

A guttural scream

As the new me births

For I am free

I am Finally free!”

Kali = Freedom

”Kali is a girl’s girl – a fire eater, who has chosen to walk barefoot along the path of freedom. She’s the festival girl you admire, a fire dancer, twirling her blazing baton, beneath the stars. Now you see her, now you don’t, flames swooshing, music pulsing, back to dark. Arms spinning, gyrating hips, fleetingly illuminated by a corolla of flames, ‘revolutions’ of defiance and ecstasy, as the Milky Way passes overhead. Then back to black! Kali’s Eternal Dance, represented by a skirt of many arms, is energy in motion.

Just as the Earth spins on Her axis, Kali’s Eternal Dance is in constant motion. Movement shifts blocked emotion. Close your eyes and sway to the healing rhythm of the universe. Seek your ecstatic frequency in the primordial Shakti, the divine female energy, where the inconceivably violent forces of creation reside. Kali is never still. She is destroyer and creator; apocalypse and genesis; decay and birth; blood bath and incubator. Her medicine is deeply rooted in the cosmic cycles of death, birth, rebirth. Every woman holds patriarchal trauma somewhere in her body, so Kali urges us to let go, have fun, move our bodies, shake our hips and feel sensation. Undulate, jiggle, twerk, do restorative yoga. Find ‘flow’ to raise vibration and thaw emotion. Emotion in motion!”
-Claire Dorey, from her essay, ”Revolutions of Defiant Ecstasy: Stealing Kali and Goddess Wisdom From the Primordial Wave of Feminism” in the upcoming anthology, Re-Membering with Goddess: Healing the Patriarchal Perpetuation of Trauma

Rising Ascending towards Core Light of Consciousness🙏😍❤🐸✌

Please believe nothing that I am about to say and always trust your inner guidance,
your inner truth. Accept only what feels true and helpful and put aside the rest. That being said here are some reflections on the ascension process.

✌❤Much I can personally attest to.

Ascension is happening right now.
This is the time that all the prophecies speak of. from Mayan Calendar to Hopi Prophecy to the Book of Revelations.
They all say the same thing. We will pass through a time of transition that will be challenging. On the other side is a new age of light on the earth. You are involved in this transition if you are reading this. High frequency waves of light are impacting the planet. These waves will continue to intensify in the years ahead.
You are here to be part of the change.
Do not shirk this task!

Ascension is a personal and collective process. Do not worry about the planet. Everything is going ahead as it needs to.
Focus on your own awakening first. When you are ready then you can step on your path of service. That path may be small or grand but whatever it is it will be essential.

The process can feel challenging. You may be judged, by yourself or others, as being selfish. When you start to focus on your growth and awakening this can happen, especially if you are someone that has been running around after other people. You are not ignoring the needs of the world by opening to the ascension process. Rather, this is like the instruction when flying to put the oxygen mask on yourself before trying to assist others. This is just one challenge. There are many others.

Ascension comes with certain side effects. When the process begins you may feel weird in different ways. Changes are occurring on all levels of your being. These can be experienced on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. You are going through an energetic reboot. There can be digestive problems, your diet may naturally change. You may want to eat in new ways. This is not a conscious thing more your body just shifting. There can be strange head sensations. Changes in hearing or an increased sensitivity to sound. The same can apply to bright lights. Changes in sleep patterns with waves of extreme fatigue that can come and go unexpectedly. General body aches and pains, including tension and soreness. Sporadic bursts of increased energy. Feeling hyper-active at times. Sudden anxiety, panic attacks for no apparent reason, accelerated mental energy, racing or scattered thoughts. Feeling intense or unusual vibrations. Also intense emotions that come and go. A need for more personal space. Feeling more drawn to be in nature and in more serene environments. A lack of mental focus, feeling scattered, brain fog and being unusually forgetful. The list continues. I recommend you doing a search on the internet for Ascension Symptoms. There is plenty of information out there.

You are not alone, you are guided. You may or may not be listening which of course is the real essence of the matter. Tune into what is happening around you. Your Higher Self and guides can communicate as easily through your meditation as they can through synchronicities in the world. The world can become like a huge tarot deck speaking to you in metaphorical/symbolic language. This is a language that you will need to learn. But do not worry, if you are open you will be shown the way.

Ascension is an increase in light in your energy fields. Anything that is not light will be brought up to the surface for healing and transformation. Another word for light could be love. Cleanse yourself of all that is not love. Hold up fear to the light. The ego, which is a protection set of programs, will seek to protect you from light, from love. Eventually the ego itself will be transformed in this fiery process.

Ascension will bring you back to your heart which is the gateway of the soul. This ends the dominance of the mind and brings it back into balance with the heart. When heart and mind are balanced and working in harmony then many doors in your life that were closed or not even visible will suddenly seem more open to you. As the process deepens you will find you will develop a more compassionate and loving outlook and others will be drawn to you because of this.

Ascension can trigger a certain amount of emotional turbulence for a time. Anything old or stuck is being shaken loose. Any energies that do not belong to you are also being shaken loose. Lightworkers are sensitive people and this often means they can absorb energies that belong to others. Other people’s anger, grief, hurt, fear and so on. None of this is helpful in any way. You cannot use this energy and actually it will feel like a weight in your energy fields. This is the time to drop such energies and come back to your own pristine light.

There are many who point the way but you are not here to find a spiritual guru. There are no leaders in this process. That belongs to the outgoing age of Pisces. You must find the inner teacher. You must become your own channel of wisdom. You have an intuition, develop it. All the answers are within you. Many teachers and channellers point the way but always trust what resonates with you as true. There is much disinformation. Do not follow a teacher or a path blindly. There are many spiritual paths and techniques and some will work for you and some will not. This is not about the validity of the path or technique it is about what is right for you at the time.

It is time to realize the extent of your light. Actually, your light has no limit since it is part of the One Source. You are part of an increasingly bright wave of light on the planet. You are here to shine your light not hide under a bush. The dark has no power over you. This was not the case in other times, in this dimension and in others. But now the darkness is receding. Now it is time to connect with your authentic self, your essential light, your I AM Presence! This is a challenging process but one that gets progressively easier. You do not walk alone. There are many angels and guides walking with you. Your Higher Self is the bridge between you in this lower dense realm and the higher realms of light.

Darkness has a role even though it can seem a very challenging one. In this 3D world darkness stimulates growth and evolution. This is the old game of light and dark. That game is ending now in this ascending dimension of the earth. That game will continue elsewhere and many souls on the planet will not be coming back here to continue their growth. Do not worry about this. All souls must honour their path of growth wherever that leads. Much darkness is now being brought to the surface in the collective. Some very dark things have already been revealed and more is to come. This is how the dark has ruled this planet for thousands of years. The dark knows about energy manipulation. This is not working so well these days. But again, you do not have to worry too much about that. Clear yourself of any entanglements with the dark. This will not serve you.

Remove any energy cords that keep you attached to ‘negative’ people or situations. You are not here to suffer lower frequencies being generated by others who do not really know what they are doing. Low frequency energy cords are very common even amongst lightworkers. Keep your energy fields clear, practise energy hygiene every day. Imagine golden showers of light flushing any lower astral gunk out of you.

This is not your last life here on earth. This is not something to be disappointed about. This is your last life in this 3D dimension of earth. But where this timeline is heading is somewhere you will definitely want to return to and reap the rewards of this life. You are here because you want to transform this place into a 5D heaven. You are almost certainly coming back to dance upon the earth!

Blessings, Steve Ahnael Nobel
