The Three Options

We are again at a crossroads at our soul levels, and although I just posted a WINGS message on April 30th, after visitation from my star friends, I feel a need to share a bit more about our current situation on the planet. Each and every one of us is strong and wise at our core, and personally, I have always felt that we have our own barometers, strong and clear, and using that individual muscle is always the best way to go. In this way, all the postings I place on the web site have always been meant to validate what we are all experiencing, and although individuals, we are all in this together in many ways.

For the past few months, I have been given the option of staying here on the planet or making my final departure. We may wonder how many band-aids we can put on a massive planetary wound before it is time to throw in the towel, or even perhaps how many disappointments a soul can endure before it begins to wither and die. And if love is the air we breathe in this new reality, we may breathe it out with ease, but we still need to breathe it in too in order to survive. What do we do when there is no air left to breathe? How do we continue to sustain ourselves and fill our lungs with the precious fuel that we need in these new and higher realms when love, caring, and the heart energy seems a very rare commodity?

On April 29th I had a birthday. For all of us, there exist exit points and pre-planned departure times for each soul, which can be utilized or not. Many times, our birthdays signal the time for a re-birth, and we get to choose if we will stay and have a new experience here, or make our final departure and have a re-birth somewhere else. I felt the departure signal very strongly this time…it was nearly overwhelming. The last time this occurred was when we decided to make a very new plan and set up the separation of the worlds in September of 2009 (no birthday energy that time). Something was definitely over and finished. Many of us were given the option of staying or leaving. And many of us chose to stay, as a new world was then at our fingertips, consisting of souls who appeared to be willing and ready. We were going to get a fresh start and go back to what we had always known, but on a very new palette.

Now we are finding that the creation of the new reality is once again going in a very different direction. This time, we have decided not to wait for enough souls to be ready. This time, although many souls have chosen to remain in denser energy of thought and being, the planet is forging ahead all on its own. With the personal choices made by each soul currently on the planet at hand, we many very well indeed experience this massive shift in ways much more uncomfortable than they ever needed to be.

Today, knowing I was now perhaps in my final days, and being called home by my family from the non-physical world, I sat down and decided to have a chat with them. It was then that I was given three personal options, and I share these with you, as I know some of you are in the same position.

Option One:

Wait it out. This means that we can lay low and disappear into the current world for a while (until 2012). The WINGS post for April 30 gives much more detail about this option. We will be taken care of in strange and mysterious ways, but will be staying to ourselves quietly with no agenda, while we wait for the storm of the final days to reach its completion.

Option Two:

Make it happen. Sounds contradictory to the first option, but what in means is that we will stumble upon and find ourselves experiencing strange and unprecedented ways of utilizing the new energy. For several months, I have been having these kinds of heart centered experiences. These experiences help us to feel much better about what is occurring around us. It’s how one feels when one has crossed over from the 3D reality, only we are still in a form now, having these same feelings and awarenesses.

For instance: While driving across the United States last week, I read a billboard that said. “No services for another 200 miles.” “You’ve got to be kidding!” I muttered. Immediately below the first sentence arrived another one on the sign. “Just kidding” it read. A few moments later, I said out loud, “I’m getting really hungry.” Immediately a sign appeared by the side of the road for a restaurant called “The Hungry Traveler.” And when my father entered the hospital for the last time, I received a recorded “wrong number” phone message from a funeral parlor advertising its services…the universe telling me that he was finally preparing to depart. These experiences have been endless, and I always feel that God is speaking to me, letting me know that everything is always okay and right where it needs to be.

Option Three:

We can leave this world through the death of our form, or basically, die the old 3D way. This means call it a day. The final ending. Throw in the towel. We have gone as far as we possibly could. There are no more options for us. There is nothing left for us here right now. We are too tired to get a second wind going yet another time. We would rather watch from the side-lines.

None of these options is right or wrong. Each individual soul will chose the best option possible. In times to come, because souls residing on the planet have chosen the pain and suffering method of shifting over, and seem determined to hold onto their lower level ego beliefs and feelings of survival, we will begin to see big shifts in regard to the heart energy. With all the endings and losses on the horizon, the inhabitants of the earth will be placed into situations where they now know what is really and truly important, what they value most, and what they are really grateful for in their lives. And maybe, just maybe, we will all finally revere each other, see each other, be grateful for each other, and simply enjoy what is already here and always has been.

We are most certainly in the end times...the final stages of death…death of the old reality and the old world. We may find ourselves reminiscing about better times, wanting to go back to the good old days as we know at some level that everything is finally over and we may never have those experiences ever again. We may wish we had done things differently, wonder if we lived our lives well, and find ourselves now truly cherishing every moment for the beauty that lies within it. We may find that people from our pasts and things that had never been resolved are now coming to the fore-front, as in the end, we always touch noses with everyone who touched our lives. These are symptoms of a dying world, of an impending death. But we also know that after each death, there arrives a new birth. A very new beginning. And this time, it will be a new reality of the heart.

With much love and gratitude,

I have been feeling the yearning for the older times, when I was happier, happier in the older ways. Yet, I end those longings with a reassurance to myself that the changes bring experience that is newer and more wonder filled times to come, even though I have no idea of what they might be. I have always been a healer in one way or the other. My dreams and plans were all culminated in that older time. There have been new times and learning greater ways, yet not starting it yet. Still waiting. Karen's writings being a strong support for me. I feel the ending, also -- wanting to go home. Seems to come up in my heart fairly often. I think option 1 is my choice. I will stay unless I am taken away. I have great curiosity about how we will accomplish it, how it will come about!
