How The Election Serves As A Call to Action

One of my teachers said to me once,

“When the Higher Self is walking through your life, nothing will make any logical sense.”

We are in such a time right now, as we settle into the reality of the outcome of our election. When the results were announced, it was like a shock wave rippled out across the globe. As people began to call in, they were scared, angry, confused, shocked and held every feeling available to us. The shadow of many centuries has become very visible. Now it is time for all those that have been preparing for several decades to step fully into themselves and stay present with this process.

As recently shared by Kaypacha on the Pele Report – The New Paradigm Astrology Cooperative, we are entering an auspicious time. He shares an intention for these times:

“No longer addicted to drama,
I’m ready for something new,
And the more I can gain independence,
The more I can build with you.”
I was reminded that in any deep healing there is usually a crisis of healing before health is restored. During a crisis of healing, we must hold our focus. We must stay in the moment bringing our full Presence. We must ground our Light and deepen our prayer. We must trust Creator with our very lives.  It is a time when our strength is in our unity. It is in our commitment to the Earth and all Her Peoples. It is staying heart centered and having the courage to embrace the shadow, discovering where it lives in oneself. It is activating the consciousness of forgiveness, knowing that our Love is leading the way and that all is sacred.
My husband, Russ, said,
“My search for meaning IS a spiritual endeavor. “Self” and “Other” are the grounds of examination. Seeking for hope, lessons, meaning, purpose, and actions ARE a spiritual response. Tolerance and clear moral and ethical interior define the “line in the sand”. And this clarity, calls for personal and direct responses through mindful actions. We must refuse to become a victim in this great, sometimes confused, country of ours. Seek your inner guidance and ask for wisdom: HOLD the BIG question and WAIT for creator to respond. Times of crisis call forth the greatest wisdom, if we trust and turn inward toward our connection with creation and spirit.”
We are at a very important choice point. Will we join the drama of the shadow or shed our light onto it?
Will we drop into the personal, rather than galvanize the collective souls standing for unity and the sacredness of life?
Will we pray and protect, rather than fight to be right?
Will we stay awake or fall into the sleep and unconscious behaviors we are so angered by?

Those at Standing Rock have lit the fire for our Ancestors.
The Divine has been preparing us all.
We are ready!!
We are here!!
We are a prayer walking!!
Let the healing begin!!!

With love we walk on,
Jyoti, Darlene and the staff of the Center for Sacred Studies

Responses from our last call:
THANK YOU from my heart for this opportunity to gather with others and share our reaction/response to the recent earthshaking CHANGE we collectively experienced. I gained solace and strength by our prayers and song and sharing… and vision for the future… and ways to proceed with clarity and Presence. The wisdom and tenderness within this e-circle is SO NEEDED and SO APPRECIATED. with deep bow. – Mara

It was wonderful to connect and share in this way! I hope that tonight’s call is the first of many more…Thank you again! (I listened to the last half of the call while standing in line to hear Winona La Dukes in- person talk tonight at the University of Oregon 🙂 A beautiful weaving is unfolding! XXOO – Rita

I would never have expected to find consolation from any words or perspectives at this point in time. How amazing then, with such great timing, to re-learn the wisdom of Spirit and even the “correctness” in the order (or dis-order) of things – to be the exact sequence operative in the Healing Process. The sharing was so “on point”. To accept that great darkness really does precede the Light. What it takes to move from the 3rd to the 4th Chakra. And the story of the eggshell that forces the chicken to emerge and grow. So must we – by accepting and even seeing this as an “exciting opportunity” to grow… I’ve been stretched tonite from a place of despair – to one of gratitude – that “All is Right with the World“. Much love to all. Aho! – Shirley

Ah yes!!! Loved the call tonight. So much inspiration! I’m feeling a sense that the web of life is not really broken after all…and that I am being /doing my part on the great wheel of wholeness. I am completely blessed to be part of this community. Thank you thank you for this generous time you spend with is coming together. We find ground together. I would love another call in the next few weeks. – Susan

But, now we must awake, take up our responsibilities, with honor and trust.We must make alliances with those we most thought we could not even hear…we must come full force at a system hell-bent on destroying humanity and All living things. So, as I sat and listened to the teleconference, with my pets sitting all around me, I am reminded that we ALL are connected, but we all must stand, as connected! – Marni


Dear Ones,
You fill our hearts with so much gratitude and are so thankful that we are walking this good road together.
We know that with the creative and open hearts present, the time is now to take this crisis and birth out of it opportunity.

The prayer for unity and peace is marching!!

We give thanks,
