Energy Portrait Guidance

Part of Leiah's process of creating an Energy Portrait is her reception of guidance from other aspects of the whole, multi-dimensional Self in which she and the person whose Energy Portrait she is creating merge: angels, extra-trerrestrial aspects, and other sources she accesses through opening her heart and mind to the unlimited expanse of Being.  These excerpts are from a letter to a client wishing to know more about the process.

A time for singing

It is the time for singing. For running into the fields and declaring our names, for embracing whomever we want to embrace and declaring our love; for sitting quietly in solitude and listening. 
The Conversation

I wondered: 
There is a time for heartbreak, the tilling of the soul. 

God dresses as a small brown merganzer chick spending every ounce of its new life force paddling against a river’s strong early summer current. It falters, loses its advance, and surrenders its body to the river.


Harmonic Convergence

 I asked: Is there a message I can share especially at this time which will bring great joy and beauty?

The Way of the Heart

Roaring, whooshing over rocks and riddles, the way of the heart leads us into the fullness of the divine as no other path can, for the heart of the divine is the true home, and in it I am in the lap of the One to whom I belong, the One who I am, with no substitutions for vowels, nouns, or verbs. I am that which I have sought all my life, that which I tore myself from as I took form and which I practiced being separate from.

In the beginning I envisioned a place in which I could see Myself as no other had ever seen me – as no other had placed a mirror to myself so I could check the angles of emotions, torturous separations and devices of torture.

And so I took form in this plane, tricking others, hiding myself from myself, hiding myself from possibility and love, pretending I didn’t know that all along there could be no illness, no torture, playing the human game, playing the game of limits.

There are no limits and only the human heart knows this as its modus operandi. The heart with all its wisdom beats in answer to the love and desire of the blood’s messages for the body.   Quick! Bring me everywhere, let me spread my message of love and nourishment everywhere all at once! Let me see every cell thrive. The heart responds, yes my love, I will work to make this happen, I will pump and squeeze, pump and squeeze, thinking of myself as the physical mechanism tat allows the messages and nourishment of the blood to reach and be sucked, devoured, welcomed beyond welcome, into the whole unfettered being.

And what is the message that the non-physical heart sends in its perfect form to the whole being? For one thing, the whole being is the wholeness of all Being, all creation, all Unity without limit. The message is, love. Love. Love. Love is the active verb and the succour that loving brings.

Every insect, every smallest portion of being lives because of the blessing of love. Through love we climb to the stars, to the blessings and blessers that inspire our hearts and minds with memories and promises for the future. Through love we climb into each others’ pathways of knowing, so intimately and so connected that we have no idea where I stop and you begin. Through love we know self as other and other as self, not caring who gets more than whom.

The heart has been attributed through the ages of symbolizing caring and knowing. Let the Egyptian idea now become operant in your being. Let the center of being be not the mind but the heart. Let the heart rule the day with its schedules, making only one appointment every day: Love Nourish, Nurture. This is the agenda.

See yourself as the light flooding your own being, as the light bursting through this illusion of your skin, your eyes, they are no more eyes that belong to you but only eyes that serve the one who you are, seeking the vision of wholeness for all being, See with they eyes that see everything all at once.

Love is the answer to everything and in love can the answer be made real.

Let the heart have its way all ways. Let the heart pave the way always; let the heart pave all ways.

Finishing the job means making sure it is imbued – filled to bursting – with love. We are not meant to contain anything but the physical fluids that keep our bodies alive in order to carry the message of love.

We are made as porous beings, with semi-porous membranes.

I see myself now shining with the light so intensely that we do not see our bodies, we se only the light, and we can hear the movement of the blood like tinkling bells and chimes, We can hear and intuitively see the rays of the eyes moving over the bits and pieces of the landscape, acknowledging with little sounds the fact of the visions, houses, trees, other people’s eyes, hands and other body parts, pieces of paper, toys and Christmas trees and Hanukkah menorahs, all these things our eyes see, traffic accidents… all these things our eyes see and as they see them, in the act of seeing, there is a soft, light musical scraping noise, lighter and less intrusive than the sound of a child’s finger on a toy piano or the strings of a harp. These are small sounds that pass through our heart’s perception, passing through the screen to play in the vectors and light waves pouring through our beings, registering their moments in our hearts which record each in molecules of blood which open and say thank you for this new knowledge, I will bring it to the part of this glorious being where it will make sense and join with others of its kind to form beingness.

Our heart is the heart of the Mother and Father, the divine essence ideas which inspire us to fealty and in our limited notions to war.

In the beginning the heart knew itself as all power and all knowing. The heart was the gate through which mind poured ideas, and the blueprint floated over the idea like a mantle as each flowed through the gate of the heart.

In every moment, my heart opens, a gate for the life I lead to show me the being I always have been, the one, the creator, the source of wishes and desires, the power that is. The Light of the world and all worlds, the creator of all being, I.
The Way of the Heart

Roaring, whooshing over rocks and riddles, the way of the heart leads us into the fullness of the divine as no other path can, for the heart of the divine is the true home, and in it I am in the lap of the One to whom I belong, the One who I am, with no substitutions for vowels, nouns, or verbs. I am that which I have sought all my life, that which I tore myself from as I took form and which I practiced being separate from.

Infect Your Colleagues

Tonight -- January 5, 2008 – I turned on the TV to watch the presidential hopefuls give the American public their most convincing shot. I couldn’t take more than two minutes of the hypocrisy and political wordplay – or is that redundant.

I was about to turn my attention away completely when I felt the familiar squeeze in my mind, and these words came in to my knowing, and immediately onto my hard drive via my willing fingers.

“The choices facing you are those choices you – as a group – have created with the infinitesimally small, detailed building blocks you have used.
Let's spread some light on 
Thursday, October 2 at 3:00PM EST.

Dear  One,
If your email is like mine, you are probably receiving messages which seem to be intended to cause ripples of fear. I am writing to you tonight to ask you to let the ripples go. Please don’t hold onto them. Fear, no matter how large and noisy, is dense and has no buoyancy. You – we – are buoyant. We are light.

Facebook and the Cosmic Shift


It is one thing to know that the world is shifting. It’s another to see, feel, and hear the invisible becoming tactile.  The maelstrom recently delivered an interesting challenge to my complacence, always a good thing. 
The subject is social networking as a mirror of the salvation we are building one cyber- friend at a time. I joined Facebook last year to see what all the fuss was about. It seemed intrusive and busy. Why would I want to know everyone’s business and their latest thoughts? LinkedIn seemed more civilized; more regulated, safer, making it easier to remain in my solitary cocoon. I also joined SelfGrowth, where it seemed too many people were in a race to collect the most connections, and all I could see as a result of welcoming them was too much spam. I became very wary of accepting unknown “friends.”  On Facebook, I began to accept only people who were people who were friends of others I knew and liked.
A sane person might say, “Well, yes, why would you accept just anyone, anyway?”
I – not always a sane person by muggle standards – would answer, “Because I am part of the solution and it is good to be inclusive.”
Then I saw Maya Angelou on a friend’s Facebook page. My friend has 660 Facebook friends; I have 89.
I clicked onto Maya’s site. The number I saw there in front of the word Friends changed my world. 4,897. I admire Maya Angelou. Who doesn’t? And Maya Angelou was walking my talk. Immediately I felt chastened and corrected. If we are going to save the world, then certainly and indeed, we must open the door to everyone who knocks. Everyone must feel welcome in society. We’ve seen what happens when people feel left out.
So I have changed my strategy, accepting online network connections more freely, and find myself a step closer to the whirling change in the midst of which – or … of  Which ….we all go about our business. I think it started the night we stood together and elected Barack Obama. I am pretty sure that’s the day I first noticed the change begin to take on a palpable quality. The movement of thought among those whose words I read and hear has taken on the quality of a storm, and the light and sound of the lightning are getting so close together that it seems any minute now they are going to converge in my own consciousness. And that will be the moment I have been waiting for all my life.
I asked for information about al of this.
This convergence of which you speak has been building since before you were born in the electric connection that connects all minds within creation. It is building momentum now to accomplish the turning toward the transmutation of consciousness, toward the coordinated union with divine will among a critical mass of minds on this planet. This planet – your planet, the beautiful Terra, is not alone in this dynamic, but since it is the place of your locus, it is the focus you have. The ball of energy that is the consciousness on your planet is vibrating rapidly. It will soon shudder and explode, multiplying to cohere again into a much larger, more potent, self-aware, dynamic sphere.
The election of your 34th president caused such a profound and widespread jolt of power throughout the mass consciousness of those on your planet that it triggered the more rapid unfolding of the quickening of the cohesive light.
Cohesion among all individuals on your planet is increasing because of this. You are using every means you have already created to manifest and realize the cohesion that will be needed to support the greater challenges the transformation of your species. This transformation is that which you – collectively – have foretold, the ascension into a more powerful level of knowing and creative power.
Inclusion mirrors and magnifies this expansion. The more inclusive you can be in all your goals and processes, the more quickly you will experience the benefits of the transformation of the waves and particles that comprise your individual and collective being.
You have previously made much of the idea that all creation expresses itself as parts of the divine Whole. That Whole is moving toward the experience of self-perception with a greater momentum than consciousness on your planet has ever known. The existence of social networking websites is an expression of this momentum and helps facilitate its progress.
Yet, as to the value of relative exclusivity versus the complete acceptance of any and all comers, we remind you to be kind to yourself and honor your limitations. You will get there in exactly the time that you, as a manifestation of the Divine pattern, need to arrive. You will arrive at the juncture at exactly the moment that all the others in your wave form also arrive.  Don’t rush so that you trip over your own feet, because the sprain will not be in your feet or ankles, but in your soul.
Accept those whose vibration is pleasing. You are not anyone but yourself. What is right for Maya Angelou is not necessarily right for you.
We bless your earnest journey but take greater delight in the joy you create and feel. Go for joy every time.  Elohim
I just checked the number of Maya Angelou’s friends: 5,002.

Come join me on Facebook and on my own website to explore possibilities for expansion of consciousness.
