After many years of trying to bring my family together, I have decided that I am finished. To be honest, I can no longer bear the emotional pain of the rejection, criticism, and anger of the people who I have tried so hard to love, support and respect. Now that I have disconnected from them, I am not sure what to do next. Where do I focus my energy and how do I know what is the right thing to do?
When you feel disappointed, it is yourself you are disappointed in. It is not that you expected too much of life. It is yourself you expected too much of. You expected that you would set the course of your life. Well, of course, you do, yet life often does not sing your tune. At times like this, you make too much of something and not enough of yourself.
This year many of you are taking a look at your holiday gift giving in a slightly different light. And while some of you bemoan the economy and say, "Look what I can no longer afford.

They are not dependent upon human economies, nor do they ever run dry.
There's an old saying, 'If you don't like the music don't waste your breath on the monkey." It refers to the organ grinder who played music while a pet monkey danced. Talking to the monkey about the music that was playing didn't do any good because the monkey was not in charge of the music, that was the organ grinder's job. And so it is with us and the energy we use for manifestation.
The energy of August has caused tremendous Earth changes. The Planet revealed rampant energy increases in the Ring of Fire and elsewhere as shifts and changes were manifest. In the past few weeks, there have been powerful earthquakes, fires, floods, hurricanes, drought – all of which are continuing as we speak.
We are still in the stillness, completing the recalibration of our light systems and grounding our higher-self, or divine blueprint, into our physical bodies. In this way, the ascension process is really a descension in that we are quite literally grounding our soulular-self into form. As we ascend into higher levels of consciousness, so too do we descend deeper into our physical bodies.
