A Reading on the Ego: Presence is the Death of Ego

 

A client came to me with questions surrounding “Death of the Ego”. For the most part, the query was open-ended. The client’s Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones were very enthusiastic and conversational about sharing this information on the Ego, providing their response in multiple voices (in various vibrations), resulting in hurried typing, numerous typos (which I have done my best to clean up), and practically no time for me to “think” or pose follow-up questions. Still, I think the response is clear. For me, the reading was eye-opening and instructive.

Towards the end, I did manage to slip in one question about Ascension into 5D Consciousness during a lull near the end of the reading. For those of you who’re curious, make sure you scroll down to read information as well. 

This time, the client was kind enough to allow me to copy-and-paste this information to this blog for others to benefit. The reading follows in bold text. 

Here’s wishing you all health, wellness, light and love.

Death of the Ego

You used the words “death of the ego” in your initial query to your reader and these words most aptly sum up the situation you are experiencing.

Here’s the thing with death. Ego is the entity who fears death. While the rest of the universe sees death as a period of rest or darkness or pause between breaths of life, the ego sees it as the final end of itself.

This is why you hold so much resistance.  

Humanity is actually extremely interesting because of the individual’s relationship with ego. It is also interesting to observe how quickly or easily a person can succumb to the base fight-or-flight responses that the ego provides during times of stress and survival. Animals have a relationship with their ego too. (Humans have not really accepted this knowledge, but it is Truth.) Animals have a relationship with their ego too. Their egos are their lifetime companion who assist them in times of danger, death, illness and even while hunting or searching for nourishment. (The ego plays a storytelling/strategic role here, which we will get to.) The difference is that the relationship does not fall out of balance. (Most of the time. There are cases when an animal will lose himself to these “instincts” and will demonstrate lack of balance due to a bacterial infection or other disturbance to the brain, for example.)

The relationship between the animal-Being and the its ego is relatively balanced. The Source-animal acknowledges that He inhabits a material body, and comes with ego. There is no “thought”, “analysis” or judgment. Just response. Let’s just say, they come as a package deal.

In humanity, the ego-person relationship is interesting to observe, because their relationship grows out of balance. There’s a Thinker and the Observer, observing the thought. There’s the Source-being and the thinking-Ego that generates thoughts, labels, judgments, categories and sometimes more labels (to ensure the survival of its Egoic “race”).  

We know, this can sound confusing. But Ego is very Darwinian: all about multiplication and proliferation to protect against the possibility of Ego-genocide. All about erasing anything that presents a possible threat to its (possession—another Ego fantasy) self (another possessive word that comes from egoic thinking).

This is where You (and we will capitalize the word You, so you know we are referring to the Source-You and not the you defined by the ego. (Ego typically calls himself Me when he’s referring to the label that he has put on You, reducing You to me.) [Editor’s note: The reading continues, so I don’t know how the paragraph ends.]

What you are experiencing now is that your ego has made you possessive of Me. You have an Ego who is battling for its dear life and identity on your behalf. Not aware that You were and are, regardless of its presence.

Remember those old movies where someone would get shot, and they would writhe and moan and deliver a 10-minute speech before dying? That’s Ego. DRAMA!

Truth is. Only when you think, can we say with absolute certainty that Ego is present. Source-You IS, regardless of thinking.

Letting go presents only a threat to ego, not You—but ego won’t let you believe that for a minute. Therefore bringing about your “feelings” (another Ego word; Ego uses that when it wants to trick You into believing that “thinking” had nothing to do with it) of resistance.

One clue to be aware that your Ego is doing all the thinking, and not You (You doesn’t think, rather … You simply IS—we know it’s awkward to express this to you with human and English grammatical structure) is this: When your language qualifies things with adjectives and descriptions that boil down to whether you/ego think something is good or bad.

  • “I’m not ready to die. Dying is bad, because I haven’t yet had my first kiss.”
  • “This or that food is not healthy. It will make me feel bad and look bad. It will kill me.”
  • “The teacher loves Bobby more than she loves me. She always gives him special treatment, and it hurts my feelings.”
  • “If I had only listened, I wouldn’t be in this situation.”

Ego thrives on the illusion of endurance, eternity.

Presence is the death of the ego.

Ego panics when it thinks it’s being released, because for ego, its momentary death is forever. Ego has to build itself up over and over again. Ego never gives up.

Source is. Ego is Not.

Ego thrives in the stories of if, could and should—which is why humanity is infinitely interesting and amusing and full of creative potential. (Because of the stories that they can weave.) Unfortunately for you, because you identify with the creations of your Ego, you move with the judgments that Ego carries with it: “All these years, you have worked to rid yourself of Me, but you can’t live without Me. You’ll never survive! Who’s going to save you, if it’s not Me?”

As you can see, Ego can be extremely dramatic, and is a very convincing actor, director and lighting technician in the “show” starring You.

Ego’s thinking is always Past-Future, Future-Past, never Present.

Truth is always present.

Truth is where You are.  

Truth comes without good or bad, it simply is: just like Source-You.

Truth is independent of false; whereas false is always dependent on Truth.

Perhaps now, you can understand what is happening with you? It is perfectly safe for you to let go of ego, for you will create him again and again and again. Ego lives and fears the life-death cycle.

You know the Truth: You are eternal, independent of ego. Ego lives and dies, dependent on You.

 

Where does the Source/Ego dynamic come into play as far as the 5D Ascension is concerned? Is ego coming with us into that reality?

In a word: No. Part of the Ascension process is shedding the baggage, dead weight, of Ego. In fact, thinking and Past-Future thought will not resonate with the vibrational frequency of 5D.

Might this be what you are asking us?

We think we might understand the root of your question now… What you are experiencing are the death throes of your ego. Does this mean that your ego will be gone for good? Well, that’s an egoic “judgment”.

“Now” is the only eternity.

In some ways, during the transition from 3D to 5D, the “Now” will produce sensations that are akin to experiencing a fever. Cold, hot; hot, cold. In the Now, but sort of “out there” not grounded. Source-You (and most of humanity) is going to the 5D reality and wants to walk through the door into wellness and freedom and universality, but ego is throwing a temper tantrum and trying to draw you back. Did we mention drama?

So, ultimately, once you’ve ascended into 5D, this bout of fever, drama, intensity, “feelings” will not even be a distant memory. Your ego is waiting for you on this side, and its “image” will be vaguely familiar, though not at all recognizable, and your feeling of connectedness will be complete—without any fear or thought of the possibility of loss. (More 3D words.)

We enjoy receiving your letters and we are so encouraged by your strength during this crazy journey! It’s a first for all of us!

 


Reconnecting and Re-aligning – More Productive than Being Busy!

I have been meaning to write in this blog for a long time, but as you know, time keeps ticking along, and we have a tendency to busy ourselves with doing. Or, more honestly stated, I tend to busy myself with tasks. Things I want to do, things I think I need to do, and then things I have to do before I get to doing the things I want to do. Then, you get sick, or you take on a new project that eats up all your time, and so on.

So, as I do on most days, I woke up early to get started with my day. Because I have a day off, I clicked off my alarm clock and remained in bed–with a resolve to feel good before “getting busy” with doing. I thought of things that put a smile on my face: puppies, a field of endless flowers, blue sky, the beach, you get the idea.

Why couldn’t I stay in a state of Feel-Good?

Giacometti in Lugano - photo by C.T. LunaAs it turned out, I realized I had a really hard time sustaining those thoughts! Some way, some how, the feel-good thought would slide downhill into a pit of writhing, wiggling, niggling thoughts that wanted to get started with ticking away at my to-do list. (“First I could go this, but then I should make sure to do that, and before I do that, I should really…”)

Yes, checking off items from my To-Do list makes me feel accomplished. It makes me feel good. So, the Universe (actually my own manifestative Source Energy) hears that — and says, “Okay, let’s send her some more stuff to do, so she can check it off and feel good!”. So what happens?

I get more stuff to do.

Two, three or even four more ideas append themselves to my To-Do list. It’s insane, I know!

My mind and body are out of whack, because really no human body can really keep up with the speed of thinking. And when my fast-thinking thoughts take control of the wheel, my body cries, “No Mas!”

Sure enough, I have been dealing with a pesky cough for about two weeks.

It’s time for Re-alignment.

I know this is true because I am generally a healthy person. Not to mention, this information was confirmed — almost too coincidentally, when I ended up fully engrossed in the chapter called, “Perspectives of Health, Weight, and Mind” of Jerry and Esther Hicks’ The Essential Law of Attraction Collection (always in my Kindle!) when I opened up to the page I left behind months ago. (Side note: Six or so months ago, I was completely bored by this section, when my health and wellness was in perfect alignment. In fact, it is why I put the reading down.)

How to re-align? How to reconnect? I thought you’d never ask.

Immersing yourself in river Töss - photo by C.T. Luna1) First, come up with your own plan. This is so important, because it is essentially how you crystallize your contract with You. This also means that if your plan was inspired by an outside source, a good friend, the Dalai Lama (or whatever!), that’s perfectly okay. The point here is that the plan is going to be implemented by you, so it needs to jive with the tools you have in your toolbox, or the ingredients you have in your kitchen.

In my case, my plan is two-fold. First, I will take time to Feel Good when I don’t cross things off my list, as well as when I do cross things off my list. And, at the end of the day, my plan is to declare how happy I am that those things weren’t crossed off my list, because it allows the Universe to take care of it for me! (This last point is a secret double-whammy, because one of my issues involves feeling like I need to do everything for myself. So, from now on, I can let go and have an open hand to receive!)

The other part of the plan is to take more time outs and enjoy them fully–without effort! In two words: Have Fun. This means, no clocks or cell phones. It means, being fully in-the-moment, whether it’s conversing with a friend (or my sweetheart), enjoying the wait for the bus (especially when it’s cold), reading a book or meditating. It’s about noticing a moment’s spontaneity and going with it!

2) Don’t worry about your plan, just immerse yourself in it. This is your plan, this is your contract with yourself, and it is a living, breathing document (just like your Akashic Records).

Did you forget to do something in your plan? Re-write the terms of engagement and implement! For example, say you planned to spend 1-minute every hour remembering the things that made you feel good. Then, you realize you made it all the way to lunch without implementing the plan. That’s okay! Just change it to be something you can do Now that you remember! (Change it to: “With every bite that I take out of this delicious sandwich, I’ll remember one thing that made me feel good today!” Voilà!)

3) Take at least five minutes out of your day to be silent with yourself. The word “meditate” and “meditation” can be loaded with effort, but that’s essentially what being silent with yourself is. You may find that your innermost self can freely communicate with you. Listen. And feel good. Because you’re re-aligning and re-connecting.


Does Liberation Sound Like a Bubble Bursting in Slow Motion?

You can tell that I have Greece on my mind these days. It’s also all over European media and that’s because whatever she decides regarding her financial situation sets a precedent with the EU/IMF and the European Central Bank (ECB) and its other member countries. That precedent might look a little like liberation to some who have been struggling with a bum lending situation.

You might have heard that over the weekend, the Greeks voted “No” (“Oxi” in Greek) against something. The vote was against accepting another EU/IMF loan in exchange for increased austerity measures. It seems that Germany thinks Greece should get another loan to help “stimulate” the economy and pay back her loan, continue her belt-tightening measures for another decade or so, and continue trying the restrictive measures to foster economic growth. The Greeks feel that they need to deal with their economy another, more expansive way (like by having jobs for its graduating students).

Meanwhile, the French (another strong voice in the EU) seem open to the idea of adjusting the repayment terms for the Greeks. And the Greeks would rather renegotiate their loan on more lenient terms, rather than squeeze their broken economy through a tighter belt and spend the little funds their economy has on payment installments they can’t afford.

This situation sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it? I’m sure it sounds like a lot of calls people have with their mortgage lenders and credit cards, etc. There’s a point where even the collection agencies know there isn’t anything they can do.

As I have mentioned previously, I’m no economist or financial person, but it looks like there’s a bubble. And it seems like it’s bursting… Maybe this is the sound of an economic bubble bursting in slow motion…?

Yanis Varoufakis

Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, open about his position on Greece’s acceptance of EU Bailout terms.

1) The lending institution recognizes that it can demand repayment all it wants, but if the borrower can’t repay, what can the lender really, really do?

2) This is the point where the lessee realizes she holds a certain amount of power, but also has some compassion. After all, when the lessee borrowed the money, she really did intend to pay it back.

3) The lender doesn’t want to be too soft, because he wants to be clear that he’s serious about getting his money back. BUT, the lender doesn’t want to be too hard either because then the lessee will give him a big, fat doughnut.

4) Still, the lender begins to insist, because he realizes that his power is based on the wealth that he no longer has (because he lent it to the lessee). He wants it back — he wants to restore the structure. Keep things the way they were.

5) The lessee slowly realizes that things are a little different. Sure, she’s broke, but when you have nothing, you have nothing to lose! This realization alone becomes empowering… She feels even a little bit more sure of herself from a deep, unshakeable core and does “crazy” things like… flipping the bird to her lender and threatening … a “Grexit”. Sounds a lot like the folks who were underwater on their mortgages and just walked away. Just left their homes and said, “that’s it”.

And that’s what this is boiling down to, isn’t it?

It’s not just about the economy. It’s about the symbol of power that money lends to nations and people. And also about people realizing that it’s a symbol — only as powerful as we make it out to be.

Now, if one of the original EU nations says “Enough”, “Basta” (or whatever the Greek word is for it) and steps out of the EU altogether, what does that say for the solidity of the concept of economic, political (and even patriotic) belonging? Might other lessees, such as Portugal or Spain, say, “Hey, we want out of this lousy loan, with lame repayment plans and austerity measures that are cramping our growth!”

A nation, a person, wanting to grow on its own terms. Sounds like a revolution.


Lesson from Greece: Money Only Has the Power We Project on to It

So last week in European media, there has been a great deal of discussion about the “Greece” Bailout. I’m not sure how much play this news is getting in the U.S., but I think it’s probably not getting as much play as it should. I am also not sure how much attention this theme is getting in “other dimensional” media (among spiritualists and those gearing up for the Ascension).

The Quick and Dirty

I am no economist, nor am I a financial specialist, but I do believe some things don’t require a degree for complete understanding. Here’s the skinny as I have understood it: the European Union (EU) gave Greece a massive loan and Greece missed its first deadline: June 30. Mind you, Greece has been warning her lenders, the EU and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), that payment wouldn’t be forthcoming. The talks leading up to the now-lapsed payment date were basically a standoff, with Greece saying she couldn’t pay and wanted an extension along with new terms and the EU (mainly Germany and France) saying, “fork it over”.

100% of Zero Euro is still Zero

The whole scene is reminiscent, not of big Summit “negotiations”, but rather a kindergarten playground argument. (“Give me back my cupcake!” countered with, “I can’t, I already ate it.”)

If the absurdity of such “negotiations” didn’t strike you last month, surely it’s beginning to show its true face now that the deadline has lapsed. Some parties are willing to discuss an extension (funny, since the extension is already now in play) and others are talking complete relief (no payment) for Greece. The whole gammut.

Could “the People” Save the Day with IndieGogo?

Then, there’s this 29-year-old in England who hatched up an IndieGoGo campaign to raise the 1.6 Bn Euro for Greece and help her make good on her loan. And he’s gotten quite a bit of press on this side of the Atlantic. The short version of his premise is basically, if every resident in the EU donated the equivalent of the price of a Greek Salad (about 7 Euro), we could raise the 1.6 Bn Euro that Greece needs to pay back the loan.

How “Small” are the Little People?

This got me thinking about the 5th Dimension concept of “fair and transparent” wealth distribution along the following points:

It takes the control and manipulation of the inter-governmental banking system out of the hands of elite politicians and puts it directly in the hands of the people.

Screenshot from the IndieGogo Campaign

Screenshot from the IndieGogo Campaign

In my opinion, for too long, “the people” have sat back and allowed the elite to “take care of” the money. But at what cost? While they may consider themselves to be free to work the jobs they want, they are still slaves to their income and the income taxes that come with it (or worse, they are slaves to the “promise of the potential to have their own income”!) — only to learn that for the taxes they have paid, the roads aren’t being paved as smoothly as they could be, the schools are implementing programs to turn children into Pavlovian automatons, and the money is not being managed as it should be, because let’s look at the evidence as demonstrated by Greece:

– Unemployment in Greece last month was as high as ever/always. Those who still have jobs and continue to live there have had to reduce their income by about 70 percent. Many have emigrated to other EU countries, and many more are considering it.
– If there are Greeks who are lucky enough to have some money in the bank, they were punished for their government’s mishandling of its funds. Banks shuttered their doors to their customers and nationwide placed a 60 Euro per day limit on their residents’ withdrawal limit.

Because — let’s consider this carefully — Greece took a loan because it needed funding to presumably pump back into her economy, so that her economy could experience a boost and raise the funds to pay back her loan. And, yet, over all these years, it seems that the benefit to the Greek people has been, well, has their really been a benefit to receiving this loan?

So, My Point Is…
Seeing the IndieGogo campaign had me thinking that this really would be an interesting solution — not so much because it would help Greek politicians save face at the EU negotiating table, but more so because I think it would embolden people — regular people — to better understand their role / our role in the world economy.

Money / Currency has only the power we attribute to it.


June 2015: Akashic Forecast, Quick tips as you gear up for the Ascension

Dear Readers,

I sat down to do this reading for a June forecast and the floodgates just swung open and loads of information came pouring through. Actually, it was way more than I could have expected, and I have excerpted here only the end part when we finally came to the June forecast. Don’t worry, I won’t hold back on the other gems that were shared. Basic take-away: the Ascension is on! We need to get our rears in gear! 

Your thoughts, comments and feedback are as always appreciated. Feel free to share this message in your social media and on your blogs (just provide the courtesy of pointing your readers back to yoga.livingincyn.com).

Much love and light,

Cynthia


 

We have been pointing you in the last couple months towards beauty. We wished for you to see beauty outside of you, and also to see how it resonated and grew inside of you. The exercises we gave you were small scale, so you could practice them while handling mundane activities: brushing your teeth, driving, even balancing your books and gardening.

“Play with cloud formations”

We hope you took care to tend to the garden in your heart, because this is where you will be cultivating everything you need to handle this Ascension.

Frankly, it’s happening now. If you have been experiencing discomforts – losing things and not being able to retrieve them – or having frustrating experiences that you can’t seem to transcend or “get over” – then we urge you to start focusing on the beauty (on the outside and inside) with fervor and passion. These are the things that will pad your way through the ride into 5D.

Let’s put it this way. We are challenging you to manifest in the Now. We are challenging you to engage with the Now with every passing now. We are challenging you to see things for what they are, observe them, and to change them while accepting them for what they are – a sense of perception that you are experiencing in your now.

Discomfort? It’s in your perception.

Let’s take a couple examples of your May, Cynthia.

A few times, on your train ride home, you would observe that the dark clouds were rolling in, and you would look out the window, observe the “reality” of the big heavy raindrops pounding away at the train window, and you would say to yourself, “I intend to get home dry today.”

You observed the “reality” of the rain without accepting it into your reality. You made it home dry every time. You didn’t have to open your umbrella once. One time you made it home realizing you didn’t even have your umbrella with you.

Same idea here. You are now in the reality of the Ascension. A reality in which you will be challenged to let go of the things you give value to – and accept that the world and others are not separate from you.

Mercury retrograde is a good example for handling this Ascension. It’s sort of a microcosmic version of the Ascension. When Mercury goes direct, you will see that it can be a smooth ride or a bumpy ride, depending on how much stock you place in the transportation or communications technologies you have at your fingertips.

Think of those friends of yours who say, “I can’t live without my smartphone” or “the internet is my life”. What a tough ride it’s going to be when the wi-fi goes on the fritz!

You will see that your internet is a helpful tool, but nothing compared to what you are truly capable of when you are riding the wave of your utmost (and ever-expanding) Light!

We really are looking forward to the moment when you do come back home and we can break bread without all this “work” that you are all so addicted to. J

Easy tip or trick for us in June?

Yes! Begin to play with your manifesting abilities. Every day, pick something that you can manifest – play with cloud formations, or images in your mind, or even a desired telephone conversation, or heck, manifest the perfect car for yourself! We want you to manifest something daily – not for us, but for you!

See you soon!


Picking the short straw on your life’s calling

A few months ago, I received word in an Akashic reading conducted by FreerSpirit.com that one of my big responsibilities during this lifetime would be in the realm of fair and transparent wealth distribution. This information really resonated with me, while at the same time putting me in a real panic about what all that really meant.

In this 3D illusion-reality, I would not be the ideal candidate for working on this. My résumé is a patchwork of experience in languages and advocacy communications — not banking and finance.

Mind you, in the work I have done, I have been committed to issues and causes that would help lead people to an understanding of the inequities in our current socio-political systems. I would find and prime spokespeople for their on-air appearances and write speeches for fundraisers… those sorts of things. All the while, I would read the newspaper and keep track of what was happening on the internet. I enjoyed my politics and economics like the next guy, but I was (am) a regular Jill — just a spectator of the show that was being played out before me.

Lights, Camera, Zürich! photo by C.T. Luna

Finding myself in the financial center of things…

And then I found out that I was actually supposed to be a player in this show…

But, Banking? Really? Little ol’ me?

Yes, really. In an email conversation with Jen, she asked me casually how this information was settling into me (that this was what my higher self had chosen for me in this lifetime). That was about a month after her initial reading — and, to sum it up in a couple of words: it wasn’t.

Jen joked with a sympathetic tone that she understood that it must feel like pulling the “short straw” and thinking “oh, damn, why couldn’t I have picked clean air and water?” And the funny thing was, while I understood what she meant, I totally realized that I couldn’t have picked clean air and water — that fair and transparent wealth distribution is really the only team I’m supposed to be on. :-)

I had been googling the words “fair and transparent wealth distribution” in my browser’s search field since that first reading. And I was discovering all sorts of interesting things. Names of banks and so-called non-government organizations kept cropping up in the issue of the status quo. These were the very same international “non-government organisations” (NGOs) that my parents had been working for during all my childhood!

These NGOs were telling us that they are doing good things for the developing world — providing loans to nations, so they could build infrastructure for development and grow their economies.

Today, we know that these very NGOs play a larger role in manipulating the power structure of the world’s various economies and politics, so that the cabal can continue to retain their dynastic reign over humanity. (For example, they are the organizations that make side-deals with independent countries to adopt policies that permit other (developed) nations to set up military bases there.)

More importantly, for me, the flame of insight started to burn more brightly. I could finally see the “logic” in choosing my family that led a borderless existence, one that exposed me to (and appreciate) so many cultures and religions that it can be difficult for me to understand how people identify with the concept of “nationality” in the separatist sense.

Okay, so I still don’t know what my next steps are to “fulfilling my destiny” or at least “living up to my purpose” — but I do know that it is up to me to respond to this calling. And I also know that I called it. Knowing this helps. A lot.

So what do I do now?

I find myself asking that question all the time lately. I wish I had a ready answer — but I think not having a ready answer is sort of the point. I am supposed to be asking myself that question. Intuitively, I’m also sensing that when the question does arise, I’m actually “supposed” to BE — and not do.

In these pauses — these moments where I put “doing” on hold and allow myself to “be” — I have found clarity of intelligence, where there is complete understanding without doubt. Only in the peace that comes in this state can I come upon all the knowledge I need to do whatever it is I’m “supposed to be” doing. When I allow myself to find silence in the “I don’t know” I allow the “Do” to be as still as the “Be”.

Therein lies my understanding of what fair and transparent wealth distribution really means: We are wealth. We are the same — we are all priceless and valuable beyond our imaginations — we are all here to save the world and save ourselves, and we all here doing exactly what we chose to do. Yes, my résumé, as strange as it appears, is the straightest (most perfect) line between what my Higher Self set out to do and what my current-reality-self is doing. And I think the same can be said for just about anyone reading this.


All questions are important

Hello, dear Readers,

Today’s blog post is more of a “snack”. I thought I’d post a segment of a longer reading which handled something that is  tricky for me when reading my Akashic Records: knowing the question you wish to pose — or formulating your question. Maybe you have had this challenge too. Feel free to comment, if you have!

With love,

Cyn


The one question I have has to do with the process of formulating questions, actually. Why Do I have a hard time coming up with questions before visiting my Akashic Records?

Cynthia, your difficulty comes not in asking, or in formulating. Actually, you experience a sort of paralysis, due to the high volume of questions that can at any given point be asked. You’re sorting: “How do I sift the important questions from those that are less important?” And to that we say that no question is more or less important than any other. In fact, all questions are important, though sometimes, you may not see it that way.

Today, for instance, and last time I visited my records. I had a hard time coming up with questions. It seems restrictive to do so. I think, “Maybe there’s something you wish to communicate with me right away.”

:-) Cynthia. You wish for a TV segment, as it were, an episode, where [you sit back and] we inform you of the news. There are times when we do this. When we tell you something you urgently need to know or address. But there are other times, when we feel it is best for you to come to us with your wishes for the news you wish to hear.

 


The Conversation is the Record

Not too long ago, I heard that it isn’t really advised to consult one’s Akashic Records too frequently (more than once a week or perhaps more than a couple times a month). Intuitively, my response is that this is not true. Personally, I only find the time to consult my records somewhere along the lines of once a week or three times each month — and actually, I have been getting a vibrational response that could be likened to friendly impatience (“Finally! We thought you’d never come!”). What do you all think?

In this excerpt of a reading I’m sharing with you today, one part that stands out to me regards my question of wanting to distinguish “reading the Records” and “having a conversation” with my non-physical guide, Persephone. Now, upon looking the words over, I have the sense that the guides are telling me that the conversation in the moment is also the Record that has been “written” (is being written). That we are–so to speak–researching and writing simultaneously. This would fit with idea of the multi-layered time-dimension we live in, I think.

Here’s wishing you happy reading,

Cynthia

I wanted to know how I, or how can people create a smoother – more connected state with their guides, during waking hours – or hours in which they are not meditating.

This is a good question, Cynthia.

It is a little hard to say exactly, Cynthia, and the reason is not because we don’t wish to be in contact with you. On the contrary, we are actually tuned into your world, into your life just about all the time – well, some of us, anyway. The Masters are tuned into all consciousness at all times, and while they are specifically tuned into your world, they are also simultaneously tuned into collective consciousness at the same time. This is why when you are not in a meditative state, you can’t really sense them at all. But if you shift into a meditative state, you could if you wished, tap into their vibrations.

You hold an image of them sitting around the Akashic records in a meditation in a state of still and quiet bliss. That is one portion of their vibration – surrounding the guards of the records. But their main role is keeping an eye on you humans, working together on some of the snags you humans have so much attached yourselves to concerning religions, economy, society, etc. They are also a sort of energetic diplomacy force, massaging energies in this way and that. There is a lot of social unrest in your planet right now, and they work around and with that.

Okay.

Can we look at my question about maintaining a connection with you all even during a non-meditative state?

Why, yes, Cynthia.

Well, we wish to tell you that we are here just about all the time.

Who “we”?

We, whom you can call Persephone. I appear to you as one voice, as you might recall from an earlier reading, but I am actually a cacophony of voices. And, I like to assume a mermaid form, because you enjoy seeing me in this form. I can also appear more like a an angel in white toga, if that is your wish, but most of the time, my “feet” shape more comfortably into a fish tail or something that resembles that to you, anyway.

I am always here, is my answer to you. You have a tendency to keep yourself busy when you are not in a meditative state, so it’s tough to say when or how you can know I am there. There have been times, when I have nudged you on the right shoulder. Just to get your attention.

I think I have felt those moments.

Yes we know. We always like to connect with you. So we are pleased that you have found this means to connect with us.

So, am I reading my Akashic Records? Or am I just having a conversation with you.

Well, the word “read” is a toughy.

There are scrolls with information, but as you unroll them, they are loaded with hieroglyphics, which aren’t actually letters or characters, but rather “fingerprints of data” spread out onto the scroll. These are actually a lot like your diskettes. Depending on who is reading these, some diskettes present their information in a “video file” others as an audio file, which is how we usually get through to you, Cynthia. And sometimes, they are actually glyphs. Some of your human counterparts know how to read these. They also know how to read mandala wheels and some of the other languages scripted by other non-physical and physical beings.

The main answer to your question is that we are always here. Right now, as things are, Cynthia, you need to find silence in order to hear us. Actually, what you do here is remarkable and we are encouraged by your communication with us on this level so quickly. There are other ways, but those will come when they come.

Thanks. This is encouraging. Today, I seem to have a little doubt about this.

Even with doubt, it doesn’t deny us nor does it deny our conversation. One day, doubt will have no place in these conversations, in your consultations with your records.


May 2015: Akashic Forecast, Tend to Your Heart’s Garden 2

Dear Readers,

It’s already May! A new month! So, I asked my Akashic Records if we could have a little forecast for May. It seems that the Records were just waiting to share, and in so doing, they also provide a little recipe for getting ready for the Ascension! (Not at all expected on my part, but completely welcome!) As usual, my parts are in bold text.

Near the end of the Akashic forecast, there was a mention that the Non-Physicals are “expanding their connectedness to us”. I didn’t take note of this mention at the time of the reading, but now I am intrigued to learn from you if you are feeling that it seems to be easier to connect with the nonphysical or with your guides. Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts!

Here’s wishing you light and joy,

Cynthia

Your Heart’s Garden

So, what do we have to share for May? You’ve been sensing things stumbling a little off vibration for the past couple days. That’s because Mercury is indeed about to retrograde. Hold on to your words, because this time they are going to go a-flying and well, this means, they will be particularly rambunctious.

Ride the Wave of Words

Usually Mercury retrograde means that communications can appear to fall out of synch with their step-by-step pattern because there are gaps of understanding or gaps in receivership – much like a satellite television on a rainy day. But this month is more like “communications out of whack” because there’s a plethora of words, ideas and communications and that’s just too overwhelming for just about anyone to manage. Don’t try to nail anything down now or during this time, because the dust is still being stirred up. You wish to see things settle, so agreements can be met (but you’ll just have to wait a hot minute). [More laughter.]

With all these words all over the place, there is also a sense of excitement. Ride the wave. It is a time to enjoy the multitude of messaging that is traveling through cyberspace. Pull out as many stars from the internet as you can find and design your constellation of message from this. But don’t get married to any one combo. This is a time to enjoy being experimental. You’ll also ride this wave through most of June, so have fun with it.

We want you to feel light and beauty

Beauty is also something that will feature prominently this month. Remember how we asked you to invest in something small of beauty for great rewards last month? Well, this month, we ask that you take the time to watch it grow. This is a bit of a creative exercise we ask that you do. We are wishing that more and more people practice these little games that aren’t quite meditation but aren’t quite weighted with the sludge of “reality” that you are walking around with.

We want you to feel light and beauty.

So, this month, spend time looking at these small things of beauty that you invested in. (Remember, we asked that it need not be something you actually purchase. When we say invest, we mean put a small sense of yourself into these things of beauty.) We are now going to help these small things grow in our hearts and minds.

In your case, you found a little necklace in your jewelry box that you hadn’t worn in years. You began to wear it almost every day in April. And you were able to notice its beauty during different parts of the day. You put aside 10 seconds here, and five seconds there, in admiration of this small thing.

Plant the Seeds of Beauty in Your Heart Every Day

Garden by the Lake

Now, we’re asking you to take that small thing of beauty and plant it into your heart every day. And from there we ask that you watch it grow. Please do not get lost in the details of this exercise. If the thing of beauty you invested in last month was a bird house that you can see from your bedroom window then plant that in your heart.

The idea is to spend one minute to five minutes a day. Just planting this object of beauty in your hearts and tending to this garden. Again, it doesn’t matter what it is. It can also be your child’s good night kiss or good morning kiss. It can be anything – as long as it fits your idea of beauty.

Meanwhile… Outside of the Garden

We also would like to share with you that there will be more activity on the world political front. More activity—a certain friskiness (for use of a light word). Your attention to whatever is happening is necessary, but not with the sense of focus that you might think.

Your focus needs to stay within the beauty of your heart. When news of an atrocity strikes in your core, or strums your chords, don’t stay there. Move that energy to the seeds in your heart. Convert that energy through the garden in your heart. There is an ability to everyone to tend to their garden in their heart, even while fear is whizzing around.

For many of you, the trauma may come in other forms. The disasters may strike in other ways. Do what you need to do to get by, but return to tending your garden more frequently in these days. We are asking you to exercise your sense of compassion during this time.

There are different battles going on and raging around the world in different ways, but it is important to remember that this is a reflection or a projection of the war that is raging in our collective consciousness and in our individual consciousnesses. The prisoners of our mind, of our thinking, are rebelling—because we need to be completely free. Complete freedom is our ultimate purpose.

Tend to the garden in your heart when a sense of loss comes in, find that weed that randomly seemed to shoot through the middle of a cement road. The flowering weed that broke through the walls of your prison cell and tend to it. Enough doom and gloom…

Venus Shines on You and Your Thriving Gardens

While your hearts’ gardens are thriving, focus on other aspects of beauty too. You will find a certain allure beginning to shine through your skin. People will begin complementing you on your new T-shirt or new glasses—not because they are new, but because the person who’s wearing it will be perceived with newness and freshness that they hadn’t heretofore shone with.

Y’all have Venus shining down on you big time. :-)

Of course, with all this glowing, you’ll be attracting other shiny happy people. Continue to tend your garden. Some of these shiny happy people will be attracted to you to recharge their own batteries, while others are there to co-charge (as in, you both charge each other and take each other to new heights. We think it’s pretty obvious who should merit your attentions.) Just keep tending your garden.

But in all seriousness, we are getting you lined up for something coming up in the relatively near future. We wish we could share a time with you more specifically, but it’s just not certain. July-ish? August-ish? Tending your gardens and developing your sprouts is so important for what’s to come. For each of you the various battles will look different, though they will affect all of humanity much the same.

Still, Joy and Light are the catch words for May. Stay in joy and light. And tend your gardens. On our side of your sense of physicality, we are expanding our connectedness to you at an increasing rate.* This is exciting for us and for this Ascension, but it is only one step. Steps are steps, and we still have many to take. Looking forward to June!!!

Thank you, Persephone – and others. Thank you.

You are welcome, Cynthia and readers. We are here with you!

 

* Editor’s note: In rereading this “Reading” after the fact, it is unclear to me what was meant exactly by the words “expanding our connectedness to you”. The editor believes that it could mean that the guides are connecting directly with those of us in this time-space dimension at an increasing rate. I would be happy to hear from you if you are finding that it is easier to get in contact with your guides or to read your own Akashic Records.

How I discovered my Akashic records

Taking the path of the knight, photo by Cynthia Luna So it might be worth taking a minute to share with you when, where and how I found out about the Akashic Records.

The Tale of How I Discovered my Akashic Records

I was going through a little rough patch with my loved one. He and I were having a hard time communicating and we were quickly moving in opposite directions. Even when we tried we couldn’t seem to say what we meant or mean what we said.

I went online just looking for some distraction, and stumbled on freerspirit.com. She had a blog post up about debunking the myths on Twin Flames and Soul Mates. I really can’t say I understood it (and I’m not sure I understand it completely even now), but I can say that a peace washed over me, and this word, “Akashic” just started ringing in my ears. It seemed so familiar, even though I had no idea what it was. I then read her webpages “My Akashic Journey” and then “Your Akashic Journey” and decided to get a reading. (Go ahead and visit her blog to learn more. I found her story thrilling.)

I submitted my questions to her that night.

The following day, I received a response from “Jen” that she would be happy to conduct a reading, and would send it to me in “a couple of days”.

By Day Two, I had already googled the hell out of “Akashic Records” and had purchased the Linda Howe’s “Discover Your Soul’s Path through the Akashic Records” on Amazon.

Later that day, I heard from Jen that she was feeling unwell and had some internet issues. All to say, that it ultimately took a week until I received her reading.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

During that week, I pretty much tore through Linda Howe’s book and decided to do a reading on my own. (Yeah, I can be a bit impulsive.) This was right near the end of February 2015. You can read an excerpt of that reading here.

In near synchronicity, I finally received a reading from FreerSpirit, and even though her reading was different from mine (I posed different questions to my Records for the readings) they were still aligned with each other. I just intuitively knew that this was a path that I needed to begin taking.

 

My process: dialoguing with my imaginary friend

On the quest, photo by Cynthia LunaI’ll come out and say it straight: my experience with the Akashic Records is mostly emotional and intuitive. I just know them to be there and feel them to be true.

But maybe you want to know “how it goes down”. Well, I basically still my mind. I usually sit in a chair near a window where I can hear weather. (It helps me feel connected with the Earth, or grounded.) Then, I focus on my breathing and relax. When I feel quieted and good, I reach for Howe’s Pathway Prayer, which you can find here or in her books.

I rest my hands gently on my computer keyboard, which is already set up on a blank word document and when I start to feel a shift in my energy (that’s tough to explain — sometimes, it feels a little like your muscles relax even more) I’ll say hello. And that’s how I think I would start a dialogue with an “imaginary friend”.

Actually, I don’t talk out loud — I pretty much engage in the conversation in my head and type everything: what I say, and what my guide(s) say(s). These conversations feel like they are about 15 minutes long, but the past few times they have taken a little more than an hour. I like to give myself a two- or three-hour window, so I don’t feel rushed. After saying Howe’s Closing Prayer, which you can find here, I’ll sit quietly and wind down the buzz. I’ll get up out of my chair, walk to the kitchen and have a glass of water, stand near a window and look out at traffic or people walking. Just “return to earth”, nice and slow.

Not getting through? Here’s a little tip…

As you know, I have surfed around the internet and read a lot about this. In a lot of comments sections, I have seen people saying they have tried to access their own records and were met with silence. Nothing. My advice is: Just be completely, 100% okay with this — and don’t let the silence discourage you. Just relax, ride out the silence by focusing on your breathing and directing your thought on a body part that you would never ordinarily think about and see if you can raise your feel-good about it. When you’re done, just say the Closing Prayer and go on with your day.

My feeling is that everyone’s experience reading their records is subtly different. Some people will channel a voice with their vocal chords and others will tap into the voice in their heads. :-) I have read that some people see images, others started by “seeing” silent movies, which later came with full-on “visions” with dialogue, etc. In my case, it’s quite undramatic: it’s a voice in my head accompanied by a vibration/emotion that feels good, manly, powerful, childlike — whatever it is that I am supposed to be understanding. Sometimes, it feels like a group of energies are dialoguing with me, other times it’s a singular vibration.

I also have a hunch that sometimes you might be in such turmoil about the situation that led you to your Akashic Records that you either can’t state your question clearly (that happened to me not too long ago) or you just can’t “hear” the message over the din of your own distress.

Again, be 100% okay with this. (And also consider asking someone who conducts Akashic readings to look into your Akashic Records about this very issue. “Why is it that every time I sit down to read my Akashic Records, I get silence?”)

You also might find later in the day after your (attempted) reading, while you’re washing the dishes or deciding which apple to pick out in the produce section, that the very message you needed to hear will present itself to you clear as a bell.

My guess is not every reading goes down exactly the same way either.
