of the people who visit my websites or read my newsletter
are curious about esoteric ideas such as Ascension and Enlightenment.
what is ascension anyway?
Tony Stubbs - or actually Arial that he was channeling -
has said it best. The first line of the first paragraph
of the first chapter in the book, What is Lightbody, says:
"Ascension is nothing more than a shift in vibration."
Those aren't the exact words. I'm quoting from memory.
does that mean?
that we are in the third dimension and we are transforming
ourselves inside a physical body, that has a personality
attached, in such a way that we can shift into another dimension.
Some say fourth dimension. Some say fifth dimension. Some
say a certain octave on a scale above this one. etc., etc.
I personally don't feel that part matters much.
really matters is that in order to live in this higher dimension
(whatever it's called) requires that we transmute the density
of the dimension we are in. And that is NO SMALL TASK.
really what the entire spiritual journey is all about -
who we are becoming. We NEVER get there. Even in the other
dimensions the beings are evolving there too. It is a constant
spiral of evolution for us individually and as a soul group
and as a species and as a planet and as a universe.
always nice to have a role model. There are the Masters
that actually walked the earth - Jeshua ben Joseph (Jesus),
Buddha, Mohammed, and many more.
I have experienced what I consider perfection within another
human being walking upon the earth. I don't know if either
of these individuals are ascended beings walking among us,
or if I was just able to experience them when they were
holding a certain vibration and "space" for the
rest of us.
first time I ever felt a magical presence with a human was
in a weekend workshop with Neil Douglas Klotz and the Dances
of Universal Peace. I didn't, and still don't, know anything
about Neil. However, what I do know is that he has the ability
to create a space where the energy in the room is pure love.
And he seemed to be in a peaceful state of bliss - totally
calm and centered within himself and yet in joy - and fulfilling
his mission by sharing his work. Was this a moment or does
he hold that space all the time? I don't know the answer.
second time was much more powerful for me personally. I
was in a little herb shop in southern California. I was
asking the owner (whom I had never met before) about some
herbs for a particular health issue. She was explaining
something to me and stopped in the middle of her sentence.
She said, "You need to meet Ann."
gave me a copy of a hand written message and directions
to a home way off on the side of a mountain somewhere. It
sounded a little strange, but I kept the information.
or so later someone told Raven, my husband at the time,
about the same woman and he got the same hand written message
and directions. We knew signs when we saw them so we decided
to check out whatever it was that this Ann woman had to
out that she was doing a talk at a library in a nearby town.
The room was packed full of people. I sat somewhere in the
middle of the room holding Raven's hand. The moment she
entered the room tears began running down my face and they
continued to do so the entire time she talked. It was rather
embarrassing. I had NEVER felt energy like that before.
Oh I've felt high frequencies, and heat coming in so strong
you feel like you might pass out or throw up, and Reiki,
and special energies brought in for certain things. I even
channel a whole host of energies myself. But I had never
felt this before that day.
the talk we inquired about the weekend discourse she was
doing. It turns out there was no more room but that she
was open for individual sessions during the upcoming week.
So Raven and I each spent an hour and a half with her privately.
first thing I asked was about the energy in the room. She
just smiled and looked at me with this all-knowing smile
and said, "I am simply radiating back to you that which
you are - pure love." Once again I was in tears.
did one of the weekend experiences and another evening or
two of talks. We got to meet her ex-husband and hear about
her from his perspective.
Hughes IS St. Francis of Assisi. He has embodied her. She
DOES NOT channel him. She IS him. From what I saw it is
as if the personality Ann no longer exists. Now the people
who know and work with her day to day might have entirely
different things to say about her. But, everyone I know
who has met her can only describe it as magical. Her ex
husband says that when she is not meeting with people or
doing a talk she is lying in her room. She leaves her body
and travels around and does healing work. This work is her
entire life. There is NO romantic relationship. There is
no JOB to go to. There is no DISTRACTION from the work.
The work is her and she is the work. I don't know many other
people who are there yet.
story is very unusual and most people are not willing to
do what she has done. This level of evolution for her came
with a BIG PRICE. The rewards probably hugely outweigh the
prices paid. But significant personal sacrifices were made.
She was an average middle class British housewife with a
husband and children. She was not on a conscious spiritual
was somehow contacted by the Ascended Masters and told that
she had a contract to embody St. Francis and what that all
meant. She was given the opportunity to LITERALLY sit down
with each of the ascended masters and have a conversation.
Ask them anything she wanted to. And then she was given
like this "You have 24 hours to walk out of your house
with nothing but a change of clothes and your back pack.
You must not take any money with you. You must leave your
husband and children now and you have 24 hours to tell them
can imagine what a HARD DECISION this must have been.
next day she walked out of her house and went to a park
and sat on a bench. A man sat down beside her and they began
talking. He ended up taking her home to spend the weekend
with his family and she has been "completely taken
care of" ever since. There was 9 months of having to
drink only honey water - no food. And I'm sure there are
many other things she was required to do in order to hold
the vibrations she holds, be as loving and yet unattached
as she is, and make the difference that she is making.
always wears silk and when we saw her last she was living
in a huge Spanish Villa in southern California surrounded
by orchards. I heard she was also given a house in Fiji.
She truly doesn't care about these things. Because she is
not attached to them, she easily manifests them. Everything
she does is by donation. She never charges a specific price
and refuses to participate in events where there is a set
charge. Her philosophy is "How can you put a price
embodies love. She radiates love. She IS love. That is the
enlightement or ascension we are aspiring to.
in our journey we can get stuck. Our personality or ego
tricks us into thinking that we "have arrived."
"I have all these 'special' gifts that others don't
have." "I get premonitions about the future."
"I hear the Ascended Masters speaking." "I
can see energy fields." "I have a following."
"So I must be this grand being that is much better,
higher, more evolved than those poor pathetic creatures
that's a little much and its usually much more subtle. But
is it a very big pitfall nonetheless. There is actually
a term for it - its called SPIRITUAL ARROGANCE. There is
a stage of Lightbody activation where it is a prominent
characteristic. It is definitely no fun to be around anyone
going through that. And, at some time or another, we all
will probably experience it ourselves.
new amazing discoveries about myself often. I'm talking
about uncovering fears, beliefs, judgments that have existed
in my personality all along but that I was completely unaware
those people closest to me have been able to see them. And
being the loving non-codependent people that they are, they
allow me to be who I am and to evolve at my pace. They don't
feel the need to "fix" me or tell me all my faults.
That is true support and love - complete acceptance - knowing
that the person will "get it" in their own time
- or not. And loving them anyway.
too long ago that I found it very hard, well almost impossible,
to share that I was imperfect.
my fear of unworthiness held so much power over me, it affected
how I presented myself on the phone, in public, how I dressed,
talked, shared or didn't share, even how I wrote. It was
devastating to me if someone saw an imperfection.
liberating to no longer be worried about such silly stuff.
Now I dress up because I want to, not because I have some
image to uphold. Now I'm real, instead of this pretend facade
I used to keep up. Keeping up a false image (even if you
don't know you are doing it) is enormously energy draining.
do you know if you are fooling yourself about your personal
growth needs? The answer is to constantly review your life
and everything that occurs in it. In any given moment where
are your thoughts and emotions?
you surrounded by chaos and drama?
find yourself in disagreements with people?
have an emotional reaction to situations in your own life
or in the news? Do you react with fear or anger when you
watch 6000 people die on TV?
that fear or anger stay with you? Even if you are not experiencing
fear or anger, but perhaps compassion, do you run the scene
over and over in your mind? Or, do you see it, evaluate
how it affects you and the world, bless the souls who transitioned
to the next part of their personal evolution (as they had
contracted to do at that time), and be done and complete
with the event? That is living in the Present - a very important
part of the ascension process.
manifest at will? (Well of course you do! Just maybe not
what your personality was hoping you would manifest)
experience inner peace and joy in every moment?
you in gratitude in every moment?
life a struggle?
have physical issues that you haven't resolved?
enjoy the people you have surrounded yourself with?
any part of your life that just isn't working the way you
you stopped having new insights and realizations about yourself
and how life works?

to work on.

fears, limiting beliefs, judgments, expectations, and attachments
into love. Perfect Divine Love. It requires learning discernment.
is a very easy way to gauge how high your vibration is.
What is the time lag between when you decide you desire
something and when it shows up?
a parking spot is a great one. You decide that you want
to find a parking spot. You "ask" for a parking
spot and you may define some parameters. If you instantly
get what you asked for, then you are probably vibing very
high and are in flow in the moment. If you have to drive
around for a long time and can't seem to find anything,
it's a good indication that you are "off." You
might be out of balance in some way, or at a lower vibration
than is required to manifest the parking spot at will. There
are sometimes other reasons - like a synchronistic event
is being set up and you need to be at exactly a certain
spot at a certain time so you are being "delayed."
you are exposed to high frequencies they force the lower
frequency things like negative emotions or blockages in
your energy field to surface. To maintain high frequency
requires that all the lower frequencies by transmuted. Otherwise
you can only go so far and the discomfort of the lower frequencies
being present is too much.
high frequency also does many other wonderful things. If
you have been contemplating, or trying to discover the reason,
something isn't working as you would like, you can introduce
high frequency. Its one of the reasons I love working with
Dancing Dolphin Flower and Gem Essences so much. Flower
essences are very beneficial in helping you discover the
CAUSE of a particular issue. Shifting, transmuting, or healing
something is often VERY EASY once the cause is known.

not going to pretend that I've attained enlightenment. However,
I am constantly reviewing and growing and achieving a higher
level of vibration than the one I was previously at. I KNOW
I am evolving? And yes, I do actually catch myself being
Spiritually Arrogant. But instead of being really harsh
with myself - as I once did - I now just laugh. "Oh
no, I'm actually human! I have faults like everyone else
and its totally O.K. to not be perfect. But, little ego,
we aren't going to be arrogant anymore."
