Death to New Life...the Resurrection

Last week my father was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Now 81 years of age, he had jumped out of an airplane on his 80th birthday, because, as he said, "I am only 80, not dead!" In the past two years (he turns 82 on August 2), he, like many of us, had become increasingly weary and tired of what life was offering ...very uncharacteristic for him.

Immediately after his diagnosis, he began a five day treatment of chemotherapy...something he said he would never do, but the desire for life was strong within him. With the chemotherapy treatment giving him the desired extreme low blood count, if even one at all, he has most certainly been wiped clean, ready to begin again, hopefully with a new and healthy blood running through his veins.

When he first experienced a sudden onset of serious symptoms, I had checked into his soul plan and was able to see that he was preparing for a wake-up call...something that would really allow him to re-evaluate his life and allow him to see what really mattered. But I never believed his wake-up call would go this far. I think I shed a river of tears as I watched his journey, feeling a helplessness that I could not describe as I was asked by spirit to keep a distance, all the while knowing that everything was indeed in divine and perfect order.

I share this story with you, as it is so very indicative of our journey home...of our re-birth into a very new reality with a very new experience.  For many of us, we never believed it would go this far. We may have wondered why we had to seemingly suffer so...why we had to be stripped clean in order to start over...or even why things seemed to get forever worse before they would hopefully get better. And why we had to literally feel dead inside.

Just like my father, we are preparing to start over once again. And this time, we have shed so much that our life force may have appeared to have left us as well. But just like my father, we will again be re-born, and when we open our eyes if ever so slowly, and begin to see new light, we will be seeing a new light from very new eyes...eyes that have an appreciation for all that is good, all that is love, and all that really and truly matters.

As with a 3D death process, when we cross over, many times we first arrive in a place that we had fond memories of when we were alive. We may remember a special time with a certain someone, a special place where we had a good and very happy experience, or even a time when all was wonderful, happy, and simple. When everything within us is now gone, we are most certainly, ready for a promised land that is unique for each and every one of us.

In this way, we may have most recently found ourselves yearning to return to a better time, a better place, or to re-unite with a long lost soul mate. We may crave our simple joys of the past, and this is to be expected, as this is part of the death process. We want to go back to the earthly experiences that were oh so right before this massive transition began.

We will.

And this is already happening now.

The new arrivals have been slowly coming into our spaces. And these new arrivals can be energies from a better past...energies that we once knew but were unable to keep at that time (as we had agreed to leave them and move into our roles of assisting in the ascension process)...but now, we can indeed keep these better energies of the past. They have returned to us once again, as great gifts to embrace, and to acknowledge that they are now here forever, as we will never part again. We are being re-born into a new reality of our making and it is truly awesome indeed. We get to come home now, and come home to a new earth where joy abounds and suffering ceases to exist....where love is ever present and all our needs are met with ease...where our hearts can open wide and where we can embrace one another once again as we finally meet up on a very new and "other side."

I know this to be true because it has been happening for me. And if it has been happening for me, it will indeed happen for all of us at one time or another.

Amazing healings are occurring now as well. ALL OF US are being given the opportunity to take a hard look at energies within us that need to depart, settle down, or at least be brought up to higher levels of vibration. We are lovingly being given an opportunity to change and grow, to examine ourselves, and to allow unneeded energies to now reside in another dimension... a dimension we have recently left behind. These energies cannot exist in the heaven we are in now or soon to be inhabiting. But this is a graceful process, as we willingly and almost eagerly let them go in order to move forward. Incredible grace and support is surrounding us as we let these energies go. And the angels are everywhere.

Solar flares have returned once again after a two-year absence, and eclipses are here as well. But know that it is not the solar flares that are bringing in the light once again. In times past, the solar flares bombarded the planet with regularity, creating much movement with our ascension process. They subsided for the past two years, because we were now embodying much more light within ourselves, and we no longer needed this outside stimulus. We had to learn to hold the light ourselves. We had to reach deep within ourselves and become the angels that we originally came to be.

The solar flares are here again now, because we have indeed graduated. We are now summoning them; or rather, the light is arriving from within, than the other way around. It does not really matter about solar flares, or this or that. Hopefully, many of us have indeed learned that the outside does not create a condition on the inside. In the beginning stages of ascension, creation from the outside was much more the case, but not now. We need not be waiting for relief, or for help from above, or whatever, because we have now evolved to a point that we are the "above."  We need not depend on nor wait for outside circumstances to dictate our realities. We hold the light and the power now.

So in this way, it is always up to us. Yes, we have had times of waiting, but we were not waiting for something from above to arrive; we were waiting for enough of us to be ready within.

We summoned the solar flares once again because it was now time. Our very new heaven on earth was ready for birthing and this new additional light will most certainly assist. Miracles are once again abounding. Staying still, in complete surrender, can bring most anything to us, and we may not even feel that it was our own idea. Our soul plans are most assuredly kicking in.

Experiencing dark or unpleasant energies that do not seem to see us, do not respect us, or do not appreciate us, are simply indications that we no longer belong in those spaces. We are being kicked out. It is time to depart. Being the loving and giving souls that most of us are, we would undoubtedly stay around forever if things were not made so unpleasant for us. At higher soul levels, these seemingly dark energies are telling us good-bye, and greatly assisting us on our journeys.

Again, at the same time, new and beautiful energies are arriving, almost one at a time. Ever so slowly, they come into our new reality, crossing over the dimensional border, connecting to us with great fondness and a perfection that we may have never known. We are building the new heaven now. It is being pieced together. It is indeed here, and if we allow ourselves to open, surrender, truly let go and get out of the way, we will feel a bliss, gratitude, and awe that takes our breath between the emotional tears!

I will not be posting a WINGS for another 10 days to two weeks, as I will be in California with my father for a while. In the meantime, know that our brothers and sisters are opening new doors for each and every one of us, and we will, most certainly, find ourselves holding hands and creating a very new grid as we continue to move forward. As the solstice succeeded in uprooting the ascension rungs below us, the rungs of the ascension ladder that we had been inhabiting, will soon be inhabited by those who were uprooted. As this process progresses, many of us will then be freed to move on to our own very new rungs, in a very new reality.

With much love and gratitude,

Just logged in to write a comment in the pervious message to share how I feel lost and tired then I saw your new message. Thank you Karen.… this is exactly how I feel, it's taking too long… I can't wait. I've lost everything… my job, my loved one, my reputation… everything. It won't be wrong to tell that, now I have NOTHING. Sometimes I feel I can't handle anymore of this process… I feel I've lost my sense of intuition, signs still lead nowhere… the promised dates, plans and arrivals turn out to be a lie. I'm very tired… tears in my eyes…

Hi Karen

My mom is going through the same thing, and of course no coincidence at all. Your writing brings me comfort.
Thank you.

We've been creating dis-ease long enuf. We mostly have chosen dis-ease as a way to
transition, in many previous life times. Why do we have to go the same path now?
When NOW is the time that we Remember that we DO have a choice in what we create.
Leukemia, like all other dis-eases, is something we can remove from our energy
meridians using EFT - Emotional Freedom Techniques, and/or the Manna Sachet.
Are we Not - Ascended Masters? Playing a human role? We do not have
to listen to the Egoic Mind telling us all sorts of alarming information.
The Ego lives on Fear and Drama. As Eckhart says: Quiet the Noisy Mind.
Stop listening every day to the Dread of Ego, instead, focus and imagine
what you LOVE! There is no need for negatives, doubt, excuses, reasons, or answers, ANYMORE!!
Please break, and release your programmed habits. Then enjoy the 3D movie you are creating with
Love, Compassion, and Spirit!
We have created every conceivable experience under the Sun, many, many, many times.
Now we only have to focus on Miraculous Creations, and remember who we truly are.
Peace. West

Thank you Karen! I have been reading your work for years and helps. But, this...this was so perfect with a timing that is divine. To Oldooz I want to say I too, have lost EVERYTHING. I kept thinking it could not get any worse and then bam...lost something else, (check out the poem One Art if you haven't already). Including, as you said my repuatation! I want to say that since last Saturday, things have changed, both internally and externally. Everything is opening up and clearing. I am finally pretty calm and secure and resting on the inside. Surrendering and accepting things as they are and picking up the step at a time. Whew! The last few days have been awesome and I have had some most amazing help and support. Almost as if I am just floating and a very loving, supportive group of people are ccming along and picking me up and dropping me off until someone else can pick me up. While certainly this is beneficial, the best thing about it is the hope it gives me each time. You are in my thoughts as I understand fully. Thank you for your post. Lynn

@ Oldooz here is the Poem

One Art By Elizabeth Bishop

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster,

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three beloved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) a disaster.

Oldooz 10th July 2009 8:25 am

Thank you, Enigmaress.

I'm deeply touched by the poem.... thank you once again! :) .. let's sing: The art of losing isn't hard to master...
