Joanna, sent this to me today and I was going to wait to get it out but I'm about to be real busy. AND, the time is now. Tomorrow we are also recording a video for you all. Thus far, Joanna, Xanthe, Jeane, and my friend Maurice Kok who is not on here have said they will join us for the summer event. Many more will also sign up but perhaps last minute. Last call to get your Banyan Tree stories to us, too. The website is a typo in the graphic. I will add that to my list. - Lauren
BOOK, WEBSITE AND JOANNA UPDATE
It's been quite a summer...or year really. There's both views of 'where did it go' and then reviewing all that's occurred and come together. Much has come together personally and also with what we are creating here.
On the production side
The Banyan Tree Book:
This is about 1/2 done....I got much of it done in July, took a little break and it just needs some additions and rearrangements, so to speak... it's highly likely it will be done mid-later September.
This is a collective voice that came through regarding what we are creating here:
While we have this awesome place and we have laid groundwork for what is next, now this will be put into a new form/space that reflects the shift, including of course the essence of what it is we have created here already. In other words, what we are doing is changing the baseline from which we operate. For the transitionary stage, we see this as not only a new website space, but the accessible information and translation porthole so to speak. The physical space of the Banyan consciousness that we have created to be able to expand upon itself in the human/earth realm also. So it creates its own ‘sister’ dimension/universe connection here.
So we have a multi layered space that is what we already have, sharing creations, stepping into realization/creation, but we will be bringing it to a whole new level to include the new element a little more prominently. The new element being the layers of consciousness that have never been on Earth before.
We are setting up these new bones and setting up the energies to support these bones and allowing it to percolate in such a way that it can be a type of self-generating entity. We are open to it changing, morphing as we do.
So it’s something that you can tap into whichever place or space you choose or are ready for. There is no judgement or hierarchy or linear steps or requirements to share. However, sharing with people who hear and see you is extremely important to many, even if it’s just on calls. It not only helps embody whatever it is, but as has been said, it helps to stay on the planet if that’s your desire. Bouncing off each other in sovereignty is also a very powerful way to create as we are finding out!
So the outline for starters, and that includes what is already present:
Just to give a general flavour for the time being.
Joanna Update - ‘something’ different
Firstly, I’m adjusting to things actually moving and shaking within the physical…things occurring that I have dreamt about—the gathering that I saw many years ago. I got a little too used to my cocoon!
And then there’s the internal something different. The following are kind of initial notes.. something I can’t concretely write about just yet…but hopefully will give a snippet.
There’s an incredible so-called upgrade occurring within me. I consider all that’s occurred internally since I’ve embodied (realized) and I look at what has embodied recently within me as something different. I have different definitions of what I call enlightenment and realization than others, because for me, there’s a difference between ‘access to’ (or enlightenment/master) and ‘embodiment of’ (realization) of either a being/soul or a consciousness. What I speak about now is rarely about human adjusting to such and such, although of course that’s part of it; it’s about the changes occurring in the I AM realm. My interest, has always been how we move from these ‘states of being’ into embodiment of it. It’s different.
But what I’m embodying now, is almost like a being, but a being that has the wiring to be able to translate and connect to this planet in a new way. I cannot say this is a light/freedom body in the way it’s been described. I know in essence that it is not the same internal feeling, so all I know for now is that it’s different. I created this and I remember creating it.
I was on my couch last winter and felt myself as a being in the future. I was imagining what it would feel like to have this within me, pre-made, that could pop in when it/I was ready. It was related to how to translate what I see, how to operate in a way that’s beyond an enlightened human enjoying life, because sometimes in these pristine states of being it’s difficult to operate in this realm (read: get shit done). Karen so aptly dubbed this a ‘plug-in’ when I spoke about it with her last week! Perfect! And it’s a plug-in that enables me a focus in a way I couldn’t before (and create with abandon in the physical). Sounds very A.I., and yet, of course, there’s nothing artificial about it. Like Lauren said, it’s what we are becoming, and it’s here. God-in-focus if you will. :winking face: haha. Or perhaps Creator Body™… that’s mine St.G! And, that’s a joke.
It’s funny though, that when it ‘arrived’ in the now, I perceived it almost as something foreign. I didn’t recognize it right away. It appeared to me as a giant essence kind of hovering over me and I felt a pressure from it in a way. I carried this over me for probably almost a month and it was heavily present while we visited in Vancouver-sort of wrapping itself around me. I was saying to Xanthe, when I didn’t know what it was: it’s not ominous but it’s not entirely pleasant either lol. Then I was speaking with Xanthe and Lauren, and Lauren could see me kind of pushing it away and it finally popped out of my mouth that it felt similar in essence to this thing I had created the winter before… it took Lauren to say: well that’s it! I recognized it and then I allowed it to pop in! So funny….and soooo the reason to gather and share from a place of sovereignty and newness, not related to anything in the past, or a course we took once upon a time. Someone else in awareness to recognize a truth in something, even when we don’t know what ‘it’ is.
This is all something I hope to have much more clarity on in the near future to be able to share in a more concrete way. So I’ll stop here.
AND I’m so beyond moved, excited and everything else about what we all will be doing here and at the gathering. Hope everyone is as honoured to be a part of history as I am. Much honour for all of you.
