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!

 


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!


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.


Can any one of us help another with a weaker vibration?

Dear Readers,

In my first reading by Jen a little over a month ago, she informed me of two “Loved Ones” spirit guides, named Stuart and Jakob, who have been assigned to guide me since my move to Switzerland. Jen wrote, “They are familiar with the country and her people.” And she elaborated that I should call on them for assistance acclimating to the new experience.

So, I did.

As usual, my parts are in bold text.

Here’s wishing you light and joy,

Cynthia


Is there something I need to change about myself, as I consider taking my Akashic journey?

Cynthia. First of all, thank you for contacting us. Yes, there are those of us who have experienced lifetimes working alongside the conditions that govern the vibration of the society in which you now live. One thing that is worth telling you is that you do not struggle as much with the issues, conditions that hinder progress for Switzerland. Your sense of the conditions that define living, are not bounded by the same set of values that tend to bind people in this culture. It is one area where we think you perform your role in Switzerland exceedingly well, in pursuing your calling. You are comfortable to be you and you are blind to the conditions that make others feel rather restricted in their time and space reality in your dimension.

I can hear what you are saying. Is where I am working now, really the best place for me to continue to raise and spread my vibrational advantage?

Don’…

Let us begin again. Don’t think of it as an end station. It’s more like a dress rehearsal. You will not be at [that company] much longer. You will find employment quite soon. Something where you will be challenged to maintain a high vibrational energy and where you will be increasing or widening perspective.

I am thinking that being with my current employer has weakened my vibrational sticking power. Can any one of us help another with a weakened vibration?

Mosaic Mural in Epinal, France, photo by Cynthia LunaYes and no. Yes, in that you ensuring that your vibration is “up there” is really all you can do. It requires discipline and a desire. No, because that is really the calling of the individual. Some people note the positive vibration of another and “glom” on that. But you already know that…

Swiss people or the people categorized… characterized by that trait you recognize as Swiss, have learned to wall themselves off from vibrations in general. It was what your husband is sensing and for him there is a struggle for him to relate to others who “block themselves off”.

Yes, We are hearing you trying to point out a “lesson” for him here, but that is really not for you to concern yourself with. In actuality, his commitment is to healing. As for the lesson he is to derive from his experience and how/whether that gets in the way of his purpose is up to him to discern. Do you understand what we are trying to say?

Your lesson is to let go. Your husband knows you love him. Your husband knows you will protect him. And he knows you are his friend. Do you know those things? Do you love you? Do you know you are prepared to protect yourself? Do you know you are your friend? Focus on your vibration and remain true to that. If anything, your husband is getting you battle-ready. He is goading you to take the next step.

What is that [the next step]?

It is not quite time yet. But it is coming soon.

[I am sensing their presence fading away, as my questions for them seem to fade away as well. My typing s also a bit more chaotic and unsure.]


See how many moments of Free you can find

Hello Readers,

Continuing on this journey of reading my Akashic Records, I thought I might share with you an excerpt of one of my first readings. It seems that when I read, it is much like conducting an interview, where I’m actually interacting directly with “another” vibration. The vibration transmits messages to me mostly in words, but sometimes it’s through sensations and images, which I do my best to describe after the reading is complete. Parts in bold are “my own” voice and those in bold italics are my description of images I received.

As usual, your comments and thoughts are appreciated and welcome.

Wishing you light, joy and abundance,

Cynthia


I am trying to better understand how or whether I can go about living to my fullest potential in my current working situation.

We are pleased to have you reach out to us. And to make efforts at furthering our contact.

You wish to address the patterns of your life at the moment. We understand this. Your life right now is patterned with chaos. This is the way it is meant to be, dear Cynthia. You have wished for this — the full schedule, the numerous requests upon your time. And, yet, you are also finding that somehow, this no longer serves you. Correct?

Yes. Yes! What do I do about streamlining my life, so that I can serve others, find personal fulfilment, and still have time, and a breath of fresh air to enjoy the things I love? I feel frustrated with my work — my job — for taking precious time away from me every week, but I am grateful for the regular paycheque, so I don’t need to worry about how the rent will be paid, etc.

We know you worry. We know that worry is what also so effectively manifested these things for you. Remember when you lived in California, and you wished for more time, so you could find clients? You wished for clients who would desire what you offered? At the same time, you struggled with your contract with [Company X], because you felt they “demanded” so much time from you — when actually you know you demanded that time of yourself and gave it away.

Yes, I remember. I know… What do I do about this? How can I correct this pattern?

Don’t worry. You are being taking care of.

I feel funny asking this. What do I do to release the worry? 

Just let go.

[long pause]

We can see you are struggling with doubt about that one.

Yes. Finances surfaced for me when we started to work on my worries. That one has a strong gravitational pull. Can we explore a time when I had a particular issue with money that I have managed to create this gravitational pull for myself? Can we go there and cut those memories, or release those bonds, or whatever?

:-) [Author’s note: Sometimes, the answer actually includes the typing of a “colon” and an “end parentheses”.]

Young boy, aged 11. Playing football. War. [My impression is that I am in England, thought I can’t say for sure.]

It was the last thing on your mind at that time. Your parents were killed suddenly, that your life was transformed in an instant. In short order, you were sent on a train to a textile factory.

My job was to sweep the fluff and put them back in bins. Not a trace of fluff was to be wasted. Everything was to be put back in the bins, all the cotton could be woven into the fabric of war. I lived with a couple, who also worked at the cotton mill. I was lucky. I paid them rent and received a mattress in a small sleeping quarter, and food to eat. As long as I paid my rent, I had a place to stay. I missed my parents. I never grieved their passing. I had to find work quickly. My heart wept almost daily, especially those nights. Every night before falling asleep. The thing that I had taken for granted was now no longer there. My mother’s love. I could see now why my father was so stern. He was probably as tired as I was now after a day of collecting cotton. 

One day in the cotton mill, I lost my left hand. [It was bandaged and within a short period — I’m not sure how long, the vision glossed over that — I was back to work without a hand.] I tried to keep up with the other little ones who collected cotton, but I wasn’t as swift moving through the looms to get cotton fluff. The pain from my injury was also growing increasingly unbearable. [It may have been infected.] Paying my rent became harder and harder to do. I died before reaching the age of 14. 

Okay. So I see how I honoured and valued money in that life. It afforded me a place of my own. I also see that I forged an emotional connection with money and work. How do I release those bonds, those connections? Do those sentiments no longer serve me? 

We don’t know… Do they?

I feel like you’re trying to tell me I know the answer to my question. 

Yes. You already do.

How do I allow money to enter into my life freely? Without condition? How do I release my stronghold on the factory worker conundrum?

In this moment, do you now see that you are free?

See the moments when you are free and celebrate them. Right now, those days are Saturday and Sunday. Are you not free on Monday evening when you sing in the choir?

When you are free, and you find yourself in a  moment of freeness, be completely free for that entire moment. Do not think about that moment later, when you need to [do this or that] … or another moment in the future, when you might have to [do this or that]… [writer’s note: I am feeling my body sway back and forth, torn between the illusion of needing to be in two places at the same time.] Immerse yourself, bathe yourself fully in the free moments when you find them. Perhaps it is just a minute before the bus arrives. Perhaps it is in the ladies’ room as you powder your nose. Relish that minute for all its sixty-seconds’ worth. Do not even think of the 61st second before it appears.

See how many moments of Free you can find in the morning on your way to work.

Find your moments of Free during work. The one where you can step way — and do so completely. One minute here, another minute there.

Okay, I get it. 

You are working your job at [Company Z] because it serves you now. Once you have released your attachment to the job, there will be the space for that which you love. Just remember, it is already there.

You just aren’t celebrating those moments fully.


Getting to know you…

Hello Readers, 

This excerpt is from my very first Akashic Reading. I had the urge to ask for a more informal introduction from the guides providing the vibration. I do wish I had asked a bit more about these guides…

As usual, my voice is in bold text. Your comments are appreciated.

Best wishes,

Cynthia


"Ezekiel by Michelangelo, restored - large" by Michelangelo Buonarroti - http://www.zeno.org/Kunstwerke.images/I/77j309a.jpg. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons.Can I ask the name of the energy that is helping me with these questions?

We are a few of your Teachers. Your loved ones are here too, in silence.

What are your names?

David, Ezekiel and Oliver.

What about Stuart and Jakob? 

Now, they are here to help you with Switzerland-related concerns. But they are here, too.

What does that mean, Switzerland-related issues, exactly?

You have a history in Switzerland, too. An energetic one. But because your life has transpired mostly in the United States, a lot of what you know is vibrationally connected to the collective vibration of that land.

They [Stuart and Jakob] are your guides to help you tune into the [radio] station that serves you and your desires. They are there as you tap into your desires and manifest what you wish for. They are enablers–the music that comes through, as you rejigger your vibration to your station of preference.

So, are they responsible for my being so good at manifesting things [lately]? 

Yes, and no. Only you are responsible for manifesting things and your desires. In working with you, they have observed however that you , being new to this culture, come with a open vibration, or with a less-resistant vibration, because you have no conditioned resistance to what is possible or not in this new land. You are also aware that manifesting something as big, compression* and valuable as the refrigerator was easy, but for a Swiss who grew up in Switzerland, it would have been impossible.

Okay. I think I’m beginning to understand the roles of Stuart and Jakob a little bit better… I would like to be able to call on the right one of you when I have a question…

[Laughter – mirthful feelings] You can do that if you wish, but you don’t have to. Energetically, we respond to the question that tugs on your chords. [An image of a guitar appeared in my thinking.] Yes, just like a guitar. If your question vibrates to produce tones on a chord, the strings vibrate and generate a sound that is the answer — or the sound of the guitar.

*The writer is pretty sure the guides didn’t say “compression” here, but that’s what my fingers ended up typing up, and I can’t recall for the life of me what they could have said instead.

April 2015: Akashic Forecast, Invest in Beauty for Satisfying Returns

Welcome Readers,

Akashic Reading is completely new to me. It’s something that fell into my lap quite recently, but it has captured my (nearly) undivided attention. Over the past few weeks, I have visited my Akashic Records, and enjoyed readings on several topics that I think might not be of interest solely to me. 

This time, I asked if my guides would be willing to deliver a general forecast for April 2015 for anyone who might be interested.  

Thank you for visiting this blog; and feel free to comment, should you feel the urge! :-) 

Cyn

P.S. Portions in bold are “my own” voice.


 

Small Buddhas

Can you give me a general reading for April? Maybe something for my blog?

Ah. We thought you’d never ask. 😉

Let’s discuss and present a forecast for April.

Thank you for allowing us and inviting us to talk to you about the month of April.

A color which will bring with it much power and illumination in April is lavender. This is the month to celebrate the beginning of new things.

With the strength of Mars and then the beauty of Venus, this year, April will draw you closer to things of beauty that bring with them a silent strength. Do not be fooled by this silence. The strength appears subdued, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not there – it’s just not aggressive, but still strong enough for birth and rebirth.

Themes of birth and rebirth are obvious. Easter is right around the corner and short trips are punctuated with an appreciation of small things. Details that will bear great fruit down the road.

This is also a good time to invest in something small of beauty where the rewards reaped will be great. Again, down the road. Perhaps, you might consider investing in precious metals or in stones. We even think that if you could invest in a piece of jewelry that brings you much pleasure while you look at it, this makes sense too. The point is that you should enjoy it every time you see it. That you derive strength from enjoying this thing of beauty.

Engage in the ritual of taking off that necklace or ring in the evening and looking at it and giving it a moment’s attention when you put it back on in the mornings. This is what we mean by small things of beauty bringing with them great strength. It doesn’t necessarily have to be jewelry and it doesn’t necessarily have to be something you buy in April either. Perhaps you saw an old necklace in your jewelry box that you haven’t worn in ages. If you feel it’s time to put this on, that’s because it is.

In the latter half of April you will be experiencing a jolt of energy. Perhaps from engaging in your daily appreciating exercises.

This is also the time to look at your surroundings in general and see if there are areas of your living and working space that could use a little sprucing up. Yes, we are talking about a spring cleaning, but also maybe a furniture rearrange. We would like for you to think about the flow of the energies through your current space and if it’s serving you. Maybe it’s a matter of moving a plant from one side of the room to another, or maybe this will involve moving around all of your furniture.

If you have a partner, have a sitdown in a space and see if you both can solution around the energies. After all, it still needs to be comfortable for both of you. The goal is that you wish to tap into the clearest, smoothest flow of vibration in almost every corner of your living space.

This is where you will tap into the silent strength we are talking about. We are communicating with you more and more, and you are receiving our signals clearer and clearer every day, but just like every radio signal, sometimes, that ticking clock interferes with the radio signal. What if you moved the radio? Or the couch? You see where we are headed here.

You can feel free to use any time this month to unclutter. It’s been on your mind since the full moon in March, but you still have time to do this now. Uncluttering also helps with ensuring the smoothest signal of communication – not only with yourself and your Source Energy, but it also helps in your communications with us (your guides).

For those of you looking for love…

If you do not have in this moment a significant other, don’t fret. Have fun. April is not necessarily the month for “looking for love”. There may be a few connections made, but it’s best to advance without an ulterior motive. It’s easier this way, as you may find in May there needs to be room for a quick and easy getaway or for the path to be clearer for a relationship that’s more beneficial then.

April is about making contacts. They should be enjoyed, appreciated for what they are.

Fun. Travel is also not a major theme. Pack light if you have plans to travel. Trips for this April will be best, short and sweet. More focus is on feathering your nest.

It’s a good month to get things squared away, clearing off your desk, investing in small things for big returns later.

How’s that for you?

Yeah. It’s good. Thank you.
