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.


Lee Harris: “More peace in having no drive at your work”

Storchbruecke, photo by Cynthia LunaAs you may have already read, I asked my guides at the end of last month if they may want to share a forecast for April 2015 with you. They were more than willing, and it was exciting for me to be a part of this process of seeing into the insights that they shared.

Truth be told, I have to visit my blog just about every day, because I can’t remember what was said — and I also find that every time I read it something different stands out. Last week, I made it a point to remember to wear a necklace with a small, flower-shaped pendant that I have from many years ago. (This is a big deal for me, because I practically never, ever wear jewelry.)

It was this small “thing” that, surprisingly to me, made me pause to recognize the strength that comes in the stillness of beauty daily.

Now, mind you, the only time I looked at it was when I removed it from my jewelry box to put it on in the morning. But it was as if this moment’s acknowledgement had a ripple effect throughout my day.

At the office, I started noticing other beautiful things and moments, like a coworker’s new belt buckle (I made his day commenting on it, because it was new, and he wasn’t sure if it was worth the money) or the clarity of another coworker’s whistle (we ended up showing each other a couple of salsa moves). Another coworker pointed at the tiny flower at my throat and said, “what a pretty necklace, is it new?” :-)

Even the Universe wanted to get in on the action and delivered a couple of rapturously beautiful sunrises — with amazing, billowy red clouds against the dark silhouette of a nearby hill. The Universe also delivered with an amazing choreography of afternoon weather, with a downpour right before my having to leave the office, right after my stepping into the bus and with unrelenting fervor for the entire time I was in the train until I had to step out of the train to walk home. Despite a rainy, April-shower week, I did not open my umbrella once!

This point segues into another lovely forecast presented by Lee Harris Energy for April 2015, which resonated with me. I think you’ll enjoy it too.

In one part of the video, he mentions our Western, “driven society” and how this April “there will be more peace in you around having no drive.”

Boy, did that resonate with me! Just a couple days ago, I finally told my husband that I won’t be applying for jobs anymore (at least not for a little while anyway). And the reason for this was not anchored in resignation, it actually came from  acceptance for where I am Right Now — because, as unchallenging as my day-to-day job may be, I do experience joy there, and connectedness, especially when I home into the silent, strong, beautiful center…!!

This point merges into Harris’s earlier point, which is that when you find your Purpose in your Self, then your Purpose in your work will also emerge. (Or, you and the Universe will “co-conspire” to deliver the work that aligns with that vibration.)

How liberating!

 


Let go of the feeling of efforting for value

Welcome Readers,

Akashic Reading is completely new to me. Over the past few weeks, I have visited my Akashic Records, and sometimes I think, “Hey, this could be helpful for somebody else who’s new to this process.” When I read, the vibrations from my guides come across as words–most of the time. Sometimes, they come as images or sensations, I try to jot down a descriptive word or two to capture an impression, which I rework later.

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

Cyn

Hello.

Welcome.

So, I don’t really have any questions for you. Nothing specific. Is there anything you wish to share with me? Can you help me to stumble on something that can serve me at this time?

Ah, you are a tricky one. [Laughter.] There is always something to share. Relax…

Okay. I am relaxed.

[I am receiving an image of a lush, green wooded area. As if in a movie, the focus begins with one tree, and pans across other trees and massive, old and substantial tree trunks. There is a sound of a babbling brook in the background… The thought enters that these images and sensations serve to aid me in relaxing more, deeper. I reach the understanding that the point of this is that relaxing deeper could “serve me at this time”.]

I don’t know if this is what I want to address…

Okay. What do you want to address? Do you have a question now?

I wish for assistance with my career path. I feel that my next move is spiritual, perhaps through the Akashic or similar, but I am not sure how to pursue this and make a living. In brass tacks, I’m talking money.

Ah. Okay. Now we’re talking.

Let’s examine this situation. You have been watching a few segments with Abraham and Esther. You understand what they are talking about. But now, you want to find out what you need to do, what you need to “effort”, to go forth with your career – with attracting an income for yourself.

Okay. What I think you’re saying is: Why am I coming to you to ask about what I need to do, or what I should do to attract the career or the lifestyle I wish for instead of simply preparing myself for the moment when the Universe presents it to me? If anything, I should be letting go…

You got it.

Dearest Cyn. You effort around this question of job and career. When really you wish to follow your calling. Even communicating with us now, is a form of efforting – particularly today, when you are not really allowing us to come through when you wish to receive a message.

Sorry. [I wasn’t really able to still my mind or get comfortable in my chair, the way I have during previous readings. I think what has also influenced this “efforting” feeling is opening the Records without a specific question. I have made a mental note not to do so for future readings.]

We do not scold you, dear Cynthia. We simply wish to show you the lack of clarity in this moment that is leading you away from the clear messages you have been taking in all weekend.

Okay. I am silencing myself now. I will remove my fingers from the keyboard.

…  [This seemed to help.]

What is it with me and my association between money and work/effort/job?

Dear Cynthia. Here you are.

Ever since you were a little girl, you recognized that your father worked hard, and often to ensure being able to provide for you. Remember what he used to say to you? “You mean, I am working so hard, to pay so much for your school?” He communicated a sense of efforting to you, which you associated with value or money. You needed to effort to learn, to earn your father’s worth.

This does not need to be so, in this ever-expanding universe that you are beginning to comprehend.

See the abundance in the leaves that build up in the trees every summer that are also used as ground cover and insulation in the winter. Do you not see this as abundance? It is part of the cycle. (It never runs out – like an economy that feeds itself sustainably.)

Cynthia. You can now let go of this feeling that you have [of efforting for value]. It no longer serves you.

Let us begin with little Cynthia who could get endless lollipops from the bank. The lollipops were free. :-)

[Visual element of grown-up Cynthia driving to the drive-thru banking window to collect lollipops for me and little Cynthia. We are happy and licking lollipops together.]

Good. You have released your resistance.

Do you feel the ease with which money is coming to you?

Trade in that scratch-off! It’s coming…. [Yesterday, I scratched off a lotto ticket, which I could redeem or trade in for another lotto ticket.]

Okay. Next…

That was easy.

What? You wanted it to be hard? We’ll work on other things in depth next week. *grin*

The next area is related to my job. I am torn between looking for other work and pursuing something more meaningful. My current job guarantees me a comfortable income and the unknown is… well, unknown…

We have already told you that the next job is around the corner. You need to let go [stop efforting] there with your current job and have fun. Right now, you are acknowledging the payment, but are you fully appreciating and celebrating? … … Well? …  Well?

You are looking for a prescription. Here’s one. When you get your next paycheck. Celebrate. Go out with your husband. Plan to go out, get dressed up and enjoy. See if you can find something that you two will really like. Plan a trip to somewhere. Do it today. You have been enjoying, but not relishing. It’s time to start doing that too. Be the creative [person] you enjoy being.

Should I take a class?

There you go with efforting again.  :-)

For the time being, you don’t have to. We think you should go forward with what you have. Most of all, enjoy the journey and the experience. We want for you to do this for at least one week.

I am getting a sensation that I should do this for the month of April too?

Yes. April’s a good month to do this. Do it for the month of April. :-)

Thank you.
