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.
When we had our awakening, how disturbing was it to realize we were operating in the collective human consciousness (mass consciousness). To know we were being governed by the arbitrary rules, dreamed up by the humans surrounding us. Rules and societal norms that made no sense to the soul and came from the linear, dualistic mind.
Then, in the experience of moving from awake to realized, that yet again we were being governed by a collective spiritual consciousness. In the spiritual world, we were given another set of rules and imperatives for living -- by yet another external source.
For many of us here, we traded the collective human consciousness for the collective shaumbra consciousness, or the collective (insert spiritual/ consciousness group here) consciousness, only to find that we had traded one set of government for another.
We were given what seemed to be a check list - sexual energy schools, ancestral freedom, light body, 'no more' lists... It's almost as if someone gave us a linear checklist to enlightenment.
Yet, as much as our human wanted to have a mental checklist, I have found for me personally those checklists actually occur in a "spiral of awareness".
We do not visit concepts just once and check them off our lists. We visit and re-visit things like karma, energy, and creation, many times as a human embodied, moving and expanding deeper and deeper down the spiral of awareness.
That's why I always laugh when someone says been there, done that - it implies linearity - enlightenment is not a linear checklist - AND on such occasions when I did say this, I always ate my words - always. Even after realization, you visit such concepts and find a deeper understanding of them in your newfound state of awareness. Every minute of every day.
That is until, we reach the glass ceiling on group enlightenment and then we must go forth on our own. In realization, you have no checklists, or rules written by the collective.
Instead, you may find yourself in the collective consciousness of the expanded SELF. Everything that comes into your awareness is a reflection of SELF and creations of SELF, rather than a reflection of the group consciousness that surrounds you. The Universe(s) of YOU.
In realization, it all becomes very clear - discernment is instant - on what it yours and what belongs to the group consciousness - one that has taken on a life of its own.
Yogananda once wrote something along the lines of ... there is no hindrance to realization except for an un-adventurous soul.
I find myself accepting an invitation from my soul to explore beyond the collective shaumbra/ spiritual group consciousness, and to be in life, but not attached to life. To really live life beyond the limits of a collective group consciousness.
For some that may mean, exploring other teachers. Please note I have retired my teacher role, yet I am happily detached from having an opinion on others playing that role. In time, even that role integrates into the one that is SELF.
For others, that means exploring other realities. For me, I am playing in the world of Atlantis for a fiction book I am writing.
Many of you are exploring being in the human world and not of it. Holding job positions in which you explore in mass consciousness - in it and not of it. (This is so cool to me, by the way!)
In the end, this post is just to say there is so much more out there beyond the group consciousness which warmly supported you for so long - like a womb - and in your new formed state of awareness, why not explore what lies beyond its borders. Exploring the Universe(s) of You beyond the facet that is shaumbra, beyond the facet that is group identity or spiritual families (Archangel families, for example).
It's important for me to state the following. I do not care what groups you play in. It matters not to me if you seek help from teachers out there, or if you play teacher for others. That's totally okay - of course it is. Everything is appropriate. And you will realize so soon, how silly all that was, and money would have been better spent on an adventure of SELF.
However, this place offers a different experience if you choose. A place to BE and to radiate. If you come here looking for answers from outside yourself, the tree will always knock you back out. I tend to agree with Adamus on this one - quit thinking there is anything outside of you that has the answers to your questions. Soon there will be no questions, only adventures of SELF.
I look back to my recent past. Writing a book, offering sessions - people put you on a pedestal. Then you are supposed be some sort of angel without human quirks. You are supposed to love everyone and never say anything in opposition. I'm here to tell you in realization there are no pedestals.
Somewhere on the path to enlightenment, I lost my spiritual ambition. I realized everyone was already realized, and I had nothing new to offer.
I saw time is not linear so everyone has already reached there realization on some plane of existence. If you attempt to elevate yourself, you will get knocked down. If you elevate another, they will do just about anything to be relieved of the pressure you put on them. You will realize they only wanted to walk beside you for a time, not be held up in praise.
It's all so human, these concepts. When you come under the Banyan Tree, leave all that behind please. You can play those games somewhere else.
Really sense into that teacher/ student role. Sense into enlightened vs. not enlightened dualistic concepts. When I see each of you, I see all of you in your aligned states - beyond linear time. I see you the realized being as I see myself the realized being with no distinction.
I see you do not need to learn anything else - and certainly not from me. I see that soon, your human self will catch up and know it was realized all along and that it happened naturally without all the other stuff. You have already taken enough courses for the rest of your human existence. If you do continue, go for the experience rather than the acquisition. Your soul says we have acquired enough buried treasure in foreign lands. It's time to become aware of our own wisdom. To uncover the buried treasure within.
Then sense into the Banyan Tree where we all float sovereignly - uniquely embodied in whatever form we choose at the given moment. A place to share the treasures of your soul with other grand beings such as yourself.
If you come here to share your heart aches and your troubles and perceived limitations AND then share how you walked out of them, you will find an audience of witness. If you come here to share your joy, you will have the joy reflected back infinitely. I cannot think of another place I'd like to hang out in more.
For those not on Ryver, you are missing a hell of discussion that is so far beyond the collective (insert spiritual group) consciousness, it will make your head spin.
In honor of your unique soul experience! Go beyond the collective consciousness and into the vastness of your own awareness. Then come hang out under the Banyan Tree and share with us, if it is your will.
PS If someone looks like a used car salesman of spiritual enlightenment, they are probably selling you a lemon. Your soul has no lemons for sale. Only wisdom that is tailored to you and you alone. Wisdom that is not for sale!
Hello, friends! I hope you will all consider joining us for a hang out, agenda free (more about that below) under the Banyan Tree on this magical April New Moon. Please join me in reading Nataly's story. I love her raw honesty (always appreciated here) and humor, not to mention a very cool drawing. And, we can all relate to only wanting got be in our I AM -ness rather than joining yet another wacky group. Last New Moon I also did not feel like joining, so I get that too. In that case, I just stopped by to wave and say hello, allowing whatever the creation is to unfold. Indeed, I think that is what the Banyan Tree represents to me. No energy, no agenda creation - just allowing passion for the I EXIST to bloom in whatever form it takes. ENJOY!
Finally I am in front of my desk to write you.
There are lots of layers in this story but I am going to keep kind of short and focus in the Banyan tree.
I haven't been in the banyan tree since last January when a couple days before the gathering I felt so much pain inside of myself. I remembered I sat in the rug at my room with my intention to connect with the experience but I was washed down with lots and lots of emotions, sadness....a terrible deep sadness that kept me crying and crying. So, intentionally I chose not to connect with the Banyan tree because it felt not right and appropriate to do it in such state, mainly in respect of myself and the rest of the members.
Over the past months a lot has been happening inside of myself and in my life and for these reasons I haven't being attracted to the Banyan experience.
But more than a week ago I felt one of those quantum leaps happening slowly but surely. So, in the past Monday, April the ninth, my house was quiet, my sons were in school and my husband was out of town. The house felt so good and I felt incredible happy, joyful and with an unexplained tranquility- peace with myself. So, I sat at the rug in my family room to connect with myself like I do every other day.
I only wanted to be with myself and my cat. I closed my eyes and I took deep breathes and suddenly I felt the call to go to the Banyan tree. I felt not resistance from my humanness, and I was very curious about the whole thing.
So, I invited my cat to come with me. I simply wanted to be floating with my cat under the tree.
So, I stood in front of the magnificent and always luminescent (with a golden light) Banyan tree. My cat was standing next to me. I took a deep breath, dropped aside anything that was not mine. I took my flip-flops off and I arranged myself into the lotus position right into the thin air. Then my cat jumped up into my lap.
I felt an incredible sense of contentment and freedom.
So, at the beginning I was just contemplating the magnificent beauty of the golden Banyan tree. I was observing in precise detail the branches, the leaves and the trunk-all emanating this calming and loving light. I felt in a state of wonder- like a child in a state of AWE.
Then, I started to feel the Masters. They were hovering at my left side and suddenly I felt one of them as St. Germain. This took me by surprise. I asked myself, "Is this for real St. Germain??"...not answers came out from him. He remained hovering with his eyes closed but I knew it was him.
Then, I saw Yogananda and he was doing the same.
And then I saw El Morya, surprisingly he was looking at me. He put his right hand up as a sign of greetings and he said to me, "YO!".....he cracked me up!.....and I said, "did you really say YO!"....and I was laughing and laughing while he remained with a Mona Lisa's smile in his face.
It was so unexpected and so charming to be greeted by him in such a funny way...and I Loved it.
As you can imagine I was floating under the Banyan with a big smile on my face. I left the Masters by themselves. Then I noticed that at my right side were many others floating, some were high and some were low. I felt like exploring around the tree but I didn't want to interrupt anyone. So quietly, my cat and I took a tour around the tree. Then we came back at the starting point and I stayed there in my Beingness for some time. It was a sweet feeling. Then after a while it was time to comeback and that was it.
Lauren, at first I hesitated in sharing this story with you because of the "odds details" but then I heard TRUST, so here is the story.
The feeling of this encounter was so fun for me that I wanted to make a quick sketch of him which I have included here...just for the fun!
Hugs to you,
We are so glad you shared, Nataly. It truly is all just for fun!! The fun of being in this magical space.
Someone send me this Tobias quote on the definition of agenda. I quite enjoyed it although I sense there is so much more to playing under the Banyan Tree without agenda.
“Do you know that agenda, by definition, is having a desired outcome of a situation? It is placing your energy on a desired outcome. Dear friends, when there is agenda, you are playing the game of duality. Period! You have a desired outcome. Take away agenda, and you take away duality. Take away agenda, and you allow yourself to move into a new energy. It takes you outside the realms of duality. It takes you into a new consciousness, a consciousness of ascension that is not so focused on the energy of two, duality, polarity. Know no agenda, dear friends. Oh, you will be highly challenged with this. You will feel naked without agenda in your life. You will feel that you are – how to say – without backbone. You will feel like a jellyfish without strength, because up until now agenda has given you strength, great strength. When your agenda was strong, you were strong. You became strong in the Light or strong in the Dark. You were strong in the battle of duality. For a period of time you might feel wobbly. You might feel like Jell-O without agenda. You might feel like running back to duality, where there is a security blanket of agenda." -Tobias, “Know No Agenda”, Shoud Seven: The Ascension Series, Feb 2002
IN THE ABSENCE OF AGENDA, THERE IS ONLY PASSION - PASSION FROM THE SOUL, PASSION FROM THE I AM. Today, an invitation to come play in passion for the I AM WHO I AM, if you choose to. And like Nataly has shared here. Thank you so much for sharing, Nataly!
Hey friends, I love all of your shares and will respond...eventually...yet I wanted to share what is going on with me right now and why it is so hard to read, respond, etc. on here. Well, hard is not the right word. It's not 'appropriate' to respond in this current context.
Sometime last week, I began having conversations in my dreams (nothing new here but the conversation was). I was going through an awareness of the difference between my soul voice and the voice (not the right word but for the sake of story) of my master self. Like El Morya I find the word master far too limiting and a bit puke-worthy, so perhaps I will just call it the I AM.
So I was discerning between my soul wisdom voice and the deep knowingness of the I AM. Waves of the I AM have been rolling in...I don't have anything to compare it to. It's not integration. It's so far from processing. There is no trash to burn off. There is no fear.
There is discomfort. That feeling like I wrote in my 'Notes' post - like you left the stove on but know you did not. My body feels stretched...I won't say new, because it is too familiar at the same time.
Yesterday was particularly uncomfortable. I was in the bathroom getting something from under the counter and Damaian was out of the house on his own. As I leaned down in the tiny bathroom here at my California home, I felt a very large presence behind me. Damian is a big dude - tall, muscular build. I said out loud, "D, is that you?"
Then I realized the bathroom door was closed. I was alone. Duh. And...
Then I realized this tall figure (HUGE, almost dark - a black hole...) was me. No, I'm not integrating an aspect. Having thousands of experiences in that experience, I'm 100% clear on what that feels like. This was me - this figure was my I Am (my master self).
So I decided to take a long walk alone - even without the dog - a long walk with the huge I AM.
I asked a question without words. An inquiry without a solid question. The "answer" I received about what I was experiencing ...
You are in the Sovniverse - like omniverse. OMNIVERSE is defined as the collection of every single universe, dimension, realm, reality and all the wisdom that goes with it.
In this context, the word was changed to add sovereign. So, my I AM was telling me "we" are in the sovereign omniverse of SELF.
Well, okay...makes sense if you do not think at all.
The GRAND figure continued to walk behind me. I invite it in. More so it is less coming in, that I am letting go.
Letting go of Earth nature, letting go of my biology, letting go of human constructs like systems, concepts of right and wrong. Sure, I did this before as you have but another layer in the spiral of the return to self is seamlessly occurring. Yet, I am still stretched, melting into myself.
I do not care if I die, I tell it. There is nothing I have left to do that cannot be done without a body, I say. I am complete in life. Just come in already and quit following me around. It's so 'time.' Time for the end of separation and a new era of sovereign one-ness (for lack of a better term). The clear drop of consciousness, I think Joanna called it....
No fear. No resistance. I have already died a thousand deaths in this body and lived. I am no longer attached to this body. It's ready to go. But I know deeply I will continue walking on Earth for sometime, just not in a biological vehicle.
By the end of the walk the I AM (master self for you Keahak people) is touching me on my back. I feel it coming into merge with the spinal cord. The base of the neck so irritated from this whole thing.
I realize I cannot create - we cannot create what we wish to do with the Banyan Tree - until each of us are in our SOVNIVERSE. I will not be ready to share until the I AM is done doing whatever it does. Yet, I do have a timeline. That will be June. Then, and only then, will I really be able to ..... create....with you....and not lose myself....without even a molecule of agenda or force....
So until then, I am inviting you to step into your sovniverse - create at will. Create forums on Ryver at will from your sovniverse. You don't need my permission.
I invite you to gather at the Banyan Tree on April 16 from the space of your sovniverse. I have been driving this vehicle for so long, I couldn't pick up the reigns if I tried. It's not that I don't care - well that too - but instead of caring, I'm going to let the seed blossom on it's own. It doesn't need me to water it anymore. The wisdom you add here is plenty.
Like Joanna said and like I stated so clearly in the manifesto, if you are here, this is your creation too. And this creation needs no leadership. It doesn't need anything, of course, but what will make it blossom is more people in their I AM-ness.
Next post, I will share a beautiful poem by Kim, which is the song she is singing to herself and the wisdom she is lending to the Banyan Tree.
One final note, I invite you to sense into archetypal realms that are left from "previous" ancient civilazations, such as Atlantis, Avalon, The Vedic Period, Ancient Egypt....and ponder if that is what the Banyan Tree could be.
Long after we have finished our last lives on this planet, could we possible create something as GRAND... could the achetypal energy/ wisdom of the Banyan Tree exist on for eons of time for those choosing consciousness over automation.
Perhaps we are laying the groundwork, creating a portal/ an energetic pathway - without force or persuasion - into true freedom for those who will live in the age of the machine.
For me nothing is more exciting. And I am not going to taint it will any human garbage, so I will wait until June.
See you under the Banyan Tree on April 16. Perhaps if you have been "using" the tree to heal, fill yourself up, gain something, perhaps you will grace it with your sovniversal wisdom instead.
In the last week or so I have been lending a lot of conscious breath (Thanks, Guillem!) to what we are creating here at the Banyan Tree. I sense your wisdom, and I read it everyday in the comments here and on Ryver. Este and Karen have written poems. Momo has danced away identity. Raphaelle recently wrote a song about it she is recording, which I will share here. So good!!
Right now all that wisdom has been put into the creation of our beloved Banyan Tree, yet I want to capture it beyond the fragments in comments, shares, etc. So I posted this on the Ryver forum:
Recently, I read a book, Balthasar: The Magus, and the story of the three wisemen (and more) written by Marisa Calvi (a friend) and told by Ascended Master Kuthumi. At the end of the book something really struck me. Kuthumi's soul in Balthasar's body realized at the end of the book that the three wisemen (3 sovereign souls) had come together to create an experience that would usher in the new conscious brought forth by Yeshua's birth and his role on Earth.
He said each of these three souls came together in creation and that creation had it's own soul. They were three unique flames in a fire of creation and that fire had a soul and each of the flames as spirit individualized. I bring it up because I have been sensing so keenly that the Banyan Tree has started to have it's own soul, it's own consciousness.
The soul is filled with the wisdom of each of our souls, AND we do not lose ourselves in the experience but enjoy from a place of individualized spirit or sovereign souls. It is our creation to enjoy! And it creates a pathway for lack of a better word for those choosing consciousness over automation for eons to come as well as those who are moving beyond firm group identities into their sovereign states. Simply GRAND!
And like El Morya always reminds me, it's time to allow creations the same sovereignty we allow ourselves. It is only then that the tree will thrive. It is only in allowing the sovereignty of the creation, such as the Banyan Tree, that we move beyond agenda, control and more so, we are not building something anymore with plans and constructed blue prints, we are allowing a creation to bloom from our unique states of being. I'd love to hear from you all on this one before forming a full post. A call for wisdom contributions, if you would like.
Joanna, answered and she captured what I have been sensing in words, and we have decided to gather the wisdom up and put it into a book - PDF I will send out and publish on this website - in the summer.
Here was her response/ wisdom contribution/ so much more:
I had a dream a month or so back, and St. G said to me “You each have a clean drop of this consciousness now; it’s up to you what you do with it.”
Back in 2010 he also told me (through Geoff) that I should write the books I was planning (that I never did), BUT that I would be involved in something that would bring me much more fulfillment. Imagine that. (Lauren here: Indeed, Joanna - my books now feel like a tiny little side gig and not my full creation.)
When I read Lauren’s post about the Himalayas, with the similarity of the St. G message for her, her experience of not quite knowing until now what was being created, and now with the Banyan Soul, it has brought together all I’ve been seeing and hearing over the last few years also. I also began to write with a group of sovereign beings, but at the time I didn’t know there were other humans involved! I’m loving this unfoldment.
Coming together in sovereignty and the birthing of the new. My ultimate passion, both in creating outwardly and within myself. Yep, myself. (Lauren again: such a better definition and words than old divine will - thank you! - I AM CREATION.)
What I see, so far, is this: What we are creating here is entirely new. I don’t fully know what that ‘new’ is yet, just know that it is. While there is nothing new in enlightenment, so to speak, there IS something new afterwards. (YES!)
There IS something brand new that is created when sovereign beings gather. The difference between how this was done before to birth something on Earth, is that this comes from a space within that is entirely free from the past and identity….even before Earth. Now that we are in a new energy from the ones before, gathering like this actually creates another “clean” consciousness…..for any being to access eventually. (OUR LEGACY - El Morya adds)
It is a clean slate - no past, no identity, no story, no old idea of ‘family’. It’s like we go back to ‘original’ but with consciousness and awareness. Because even within enlightenment, and awareness and pulling one’s self together, we tend to have definitions of ourselves that are limiting, until we don’t anymore.
It is no mistake that there is so much coming up for many regarding identity and regarding how we relate to each other in sovereignty, and that sovereignty isn’t what we thought it was.
We are creating this entire space of existence where none of what we have created before exists anymore, except the wisdom. Quite literally, timelines are being disintegrated. This may take some time to trickle down to awareness in full. And of course, it is as we are, always always morphing, changing and becoming.
The beauty is, we don’t know what it will look like. We are making it up as we go along. So there is more here, that I just don’t see yet and that hasn’t been created yet. And I am totally excited to see what it becomes and hear what it has to say.
Yes there is the living in mastery and joy and realizing all these things about being here in freedom… and many many are here just to enjoy that and experience the unfolding of who they are in human form…but many of us are going to the next space of existence…and we can also experience that from HERE.
And we will begin to understand the new we are creating within ourselves as BEINGS also.
For a few years now, I’ve been going to this place of what I (as an integrated being) am going to create myself to be. I am combining my core essence with any other I choose…to create something new within myself and to be whatever/whoever I want to be…and from that come the new creations. And there’s always a good chance I’ll be surprised.
So like we are all combining our wisdom to create this new soul, I do the same within myself.
THANK YOU, JOANNA! When I read this yesterday, I wanted to allow it to sink in a few days before sharing, and then I ws too excited this morning not to put it out.
I am crying knowing that someone else sees the creation, touches and tastes it in a similar way - and is a hell of a lot better at explaining it. Sometimes when we get so close to something, when we are so in the creation, it's hard to see the grand design of it all. Joanna can and did.
And I know you all SEE it too, so we are asking for your contributions for a book that we will put together. You can add art. poems, links to music, and anything that can go into a PDF or weblink. Please send those in by May 21. In the meantime, we have two New Moon Gatherings that you can inJOY and share about - April 16 and May 15.
If you are new, check out the Banyan Tree, New Moon and click on the Banyan Tree Category for all article related - or wait until it comes out in e-book form.
With our human journalism backgrounds (too funny!), Joanna and I are going to compile the creation publication. I will include the full story of the history of the Banyan Tree - El Morya came to me in September 2017 to bring forth the idea.
I will go through your shares and comments dating back to September, yet if you could email me your comments and experiences (dreams, senses, etc) at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would be so appreciative (takes some of the digging work out...). This will also be sent out to new members as they come in as there has been a bit of confusion as to what the Banyan Tree is and how we are creating it with each conscious breath.

I just noticed the publishing date on the book - September 30, 2013. It's quite funny because El Morya showed up on my doorstep for the first time in my adult human life on October 3, 2013. What we are birthing is so much grander than our human self can know.
Love and gratitude from us all.
It's been a while since I have written something of substance here. This morning Xavi asked me some questions on Ryver. I love that so much because without the question, the answer would not form. So here are my answers and an invitation to join me on something I sense will be amazing, especially if you add your wisdom to it as well.
First, I want to start off with a little except from the Thirty Days of Self-Love, Chapter 3...
March 15, 2017
Bend, Oregon to Waldport, Oregon
Yesterday Ollie and I made our way from Bend to Waldport, Oregon, where the Alsea River meets the Pacific Ocean. We took the road less traveled, which took us through piney, mountainous woods and dropped us softly into the lush, temperate Willamette National Forest.
As we weaved through the winding roads, I sensed into what I was creating for myself on this journey. I sensed with each curve I took on the road, with each turn of the steering wheel, that I was weaving the cobwebs of creation for the experiences that lay ahead of me.
Weaving the cobwebs of creation is a concept I have been experiencing and sensually examining for some months now. For me, it is about experiencing creative senses in addition to perceiving senses. Of course, the two go hand and hand.
We use our perceiving senses to get a sensual lay of the land, and at the same time, we can access our creative senses, which we can consciously use to build and experience our reality, minute by minute, second by second.
As masters of Self, we are spiders spinning our own creative webs, weaving the energy designs which will attract and manifest anything we dream or desire in our creative cobwebs. The energetic design of the web determines what we will ‘catch’ and ‘dine on’ in our lives, if you will.
For spiders, weaving a web is instinctual. As masters of our lives, creative senses also come from a place within our body of consciousness, within the universe of Self, that is beyond the human mind and emotions - beyond even intuition and imagination, as creative senses are far more sophisticated. Creative senses come from the soul, or master Self – from the core of who we truly are beyond singular human existence.
Spiders do not use rush or force when spinning their webs. Their movements are gentle, delicate, and precise. Consciousness gives rise to precision. If we choose, we can be completely aware of the energetic designs of the cobwebs we are weaving. We can be as energetically precise – beyond human details – as we would like in our creative abilities.
I share this because while my human was not aware then, the web I was spinning on this day more than a year ago was the creation of the Center of Being.
Center is not a word for an organization or a physical space. It is the center of being that is the individualized source spirit that lives in us all. It was a place for sovereign beings to share their sovereign center with another - in a place that exits beyond physicality, duality, linearity and gravity.
This is not only my creation but yours as well.
For me, this whole experience has unfolded and continues to unfold in some sort of divine (beyond human agenda) format or blue print because we are 'making it up'/ creating it together- each from the point of sovereignty within each of our being - as we go along. Each person who connects to the creation adds their wisdom to it, and it changes shape and form continuously. Transfiguration. Alchemy of Spirit. BEING - a perpetual state of becoming - never static, always dynamic.
Today Xavi asked me some questions and shared some of his views, and I wanted to share the response with you - why I have not shared El Morya's channels, why I am taking a break from big shares until June, and finally, an invitation to ask you to grace this space - this creation- with your wisdom. Of course, you are always doing so by BEING here, but maybe we can share a bit more about this with human awareness, if it something you would like to do.
Xavi first referenced an article by Geoffrey Hoppe in the Crimson Circle magazine in reference to recent events when Adamus St. Germain asked people to leave who were still in lack among other things. I bring this up because it is related to how each of us interact with groups (CC or other) from a different space of ONE-ness, Being-ness, soul sovereignty, and/or divine will. Total disconnection - to reconnect from a space of sovereignty (covered more below).
"Regarding Geoff, I'm surprised that so few people have reacted to it (Adams's imperatives for leaving and staying in the CC). According to Geoff or nobody saw the last shoud or 99.9% of Shaumbra is ok. Well I have another theory, many have not taken for granted and have decided to deny their reality. --- Important question --- This makes me ask myself, in short, what are we doing here at the Center of Being?
Are we going back to the CC because Adamus is finally cleaning? Because it does not seem that the reasons why we gather here are giving.
Let me explain: for me the Center of Being @The_Center_of_Being , or the Banyan Tree, is a non-place where everyone can experience their own EEE process at their own pace, without groups marking the tempo; and share it with others if you decide.
That's great, and that's what I want to do now. On the other hand I realize that we are not going to work or travel in the EEE as a group here, and that is why I imagine that the two channels of El Morya per month have never been given or will not be given. I'm afraid we're going to have to keep going to the CC from time to time to catch up."
It's a great question - and please note I love this kind of exchange - it is not upsetting to me at all. The opposite - so helpful.
Here is my response (also on Ryver where this sort of exchange occurs and shapes these posts and shares immensely):
"Xavi, I'm always glad you bring things up. I am kind of going with the flow. I do not really consider this a group but a gathering of sovereign beings who come together from time to time to share. We don't have rules, regulations. El Morya did ask me to do some channels -- and then he and I both felt a shift. I don't have a real clear direction - I'm honest about that.
Nothing is so black and white for me and schedules and control/ organization makes me cringe because it takes away from the free flow. Also, unlike other channelers, I really feel I must understand something and live it before I share it with other people. I'm not there yet. At all. But I will BE.
Currently, I am experiencing all parts and pieces of myself coming together as one. I sense disconnection and yet I am still able to connect from a different space. For example, I used to go to CC and other conscious/ spiritual groups to get wisdom - to fill myself up - to get my fix.
Now, I feel like I can add my wisdom and observe without needing to fill myself up - I am full - soul full. So for me, CC is still there, Adamus is still sharing wisdom I like to hear. As far as the human game over there. I'm so done. Control is just another form of energy feeding.
I guess what I'm trying to say is two things. It's not an either/ or situation (the mind tends to want that but the mind is dead) - it's an AND. The more you disconnect to become THE ONE SELF the more relationships expand into the AND.
Finally, most importantly for this space, both El Morya and my soul/ higher voice called Sar'h or whatever - I hate the definition and names right now (cringe) - we will probably create a new name for this collective voice (El Morya just told me that) - is planning or creating, rather, something for June.
"Please be patient," - Lauren
"Be ready to be wowed" - El Morya & Sar'h
(One example of my fragments coming together right now....)
However, what we share will NOT be wisdom to absorb and learn from. People will not come to the Banyan Tree to ask for answers or it will back fire and shoot them straight out.
It will be an exploration of I AM and creation from being in which your own soul's wisdom will guide you!
So, moving forward, if you come here looking for guidance from outside of the soul's passionate wisdom - not only will you be disappointed you will probably get sick.
Right now I am attuning my physical body to be able to handle what El Morya and Sar'h as a 'collective consciousness of BEING' will share.
Until that feels complete to human Lauren, I will not share or be beholden to any timeline. I am not going to blast myself into a sick bed or out of the body. We still have too much legacy to leave behind -- as do you all!
I sense this will be a complete radical shift in what is shared here. I ask for human patience AND MORE SO for you all to contribute your wisdom to this collective being consciousness and the CREATION FROM BEING experience - if you choose.
Xavi - thank you for playing your divine/ soul will role to perfection. I am so serious when I say it is appreciated!!!"
So today, as my soul asks me to hang on a couple more months for what will be shared this summer, I invite you to contribute your wisdom under, in, and throughout the branches of the majestic, golden Banyan Tree, if it is your will. If you choose, maybe share below as well. So helpful for human me right now...
In total honor of you and your unique experience and what wisdom you bring here!!!
By the way, how can anyone charge for something that is a mutual expression of creation - in which everyone is bringing their wisdom to the table/ banyan tree??? It is beyond comprehension these days. An old game.
THANK YOU from the Center of my Being to the Center of Yours!!!
Got Wisdom? :)
First I want to say that we are good on the Ryver donations - completed and appreciated. Please note I also donated because I enjoy it so much. Thank you! Next year we can look at if Ryver is still serving us well or if we have moved on - transient beings we are:)
The Banyan Tree Story Files continue to grow. For those of you who have just joined us in the physical, Babaji shares with me what he calls the enlightenment map. On this map of Earth, Babaji shows me with little bright lights where embodied masters exist all over the planet. There's a little star on the map for each person and they move and change in real time on the map. (I wrote about it here, too)
Under the Banyan Tree, we connect with these beings, and several of you on Ryver have been reporting the connections to beings like us in Africa - so cool. One even said he was a friend of Yogananda. Not only is it cool, it is part of the imperative of this space - TO CREATE POTENTIALS AND POSSIBILITIES FOR THOSE CHOOSING CONSCIOUSNESS OVER AUTOMATION FOR EONS TO COME - stated in our Magic Manifesto.
As you are well aware, 99.99% of those in the embodied enlightenment experience are not out there teaching, making movies, being famous teachers, whatever. They may look like regular beings, going about their regular lives, and living the Magic that is BEING for they joy of it, first, and in support of the magic of BEING, and what that creates for souls on Earth with each breath we take. We've been talking about this for some time, and those who needed confirmation have found it in the Prognost materials from January this year.
The Banyan Tree was created for sovereign beings such as ourselves and our new friends in Africa to sovereignly interact or observe other masters of Self - whether embodied or ascended (the line is blurred between the two under the Banyan). It is a place beyond the noise and a place to experience divine will of the soul, the third circle of creation, or to simply be....
Further, true creation comes from the state of BEING (enlightenment). The joy of being here in physical form is creation. The depression, anxiety, whatever, comes from not creating, which is what your soul is here to do, to BE. Next New Moon we will go further into this creation from being.
Speaking of creation from soul, I am being guided by my own wisdom to explore my soul in the absence of identity as a preparatory (for the human) experience for diving into the no energy creation experience - creation from pure consciousness or awareness. To create from consciousness, the awareness must permeate tout to the edges of our being-ness - throughout the Universe of Self.
BEING IN THE ABSENCE OF IDENTITY
This was the theme of the New Moon gathering on the 17th but it has lasted a while for me, and will continue on, according to my soul awareness/ wisdom.
One of you sent me the following note, and it has captured a lot of what I am experiencing.
"Yesterday when I connected with the Banyan Tree, I had an interesting and very personal experience. It was like a funeral celebration for my identities. Not that I will never have human roles anymore, but it was like breaking up with an old version of me. Very expansive, joyful and also feeling sadness for letting go of something that was mine for such a long time. Some of the masters (embodied and ascended) came by, and I also felt your presence, but I wasn’t so much interacting with others, as just being in celebration of this change."
I too have been watching the identities go, integrate. It's not that it will make your pure and authentic - there is no such thing as authentic. We are always playing a role - every time we interact with this world.
Instead, what this experience is gifting me is the chance to really sift through the junk and find the radiating diamond that is my divine will role. What is the role(s) of the GodSelf, the soul, the master on this Earth, in this incarnation? What does that look like for me? How does it shift, change, evolve, and expand? What's the big motion picture and what role does my soul want to play in it? The future self has already decided it, now I'm having fun retracing the steps with childlike curiosity.
WHY THIS SPACE IS UNIQUE
As a side note, I tried to listen to Keahak yesterday. While I couldn't get through it, I did realize my contribution in writing and my talk with Adamus about Shaumbra made it into the channel - YOU CANNOT MENTALIZE WISDOM.
As you will recall about two months ago, I wrote a little article and posted it on the Keahak forum - not to get responses but to add my wisdom of experience to the group. It took a while, but it was nice to hear my contribution make it to a channel yesterday.
I bring this up because instead of getting out of a group in disgust - there is another option.
You can step into the third circle of creation in JOY and then share the wisdom of your experiences with the consciousness/ spiritual organization that you disconnected with. You can visit in joy and be under the Banyan Tree in your sovereignty simultaneously because you are beyond linear time. And you will not get sucked back in because you exist beyond gravity.
Here's a bit of Sar'h and El Morya's vision for the space: READ HERE
Here is the Keahak wisdom I shared, which has finally made it into the channels (both Keahak and a shoud): THE BLOOMING FLOWER
If you are joining us after, I highly recommend reading these to grasp the essence of this space.
EXPERIENCES, IF YOU CHOOSE
Have you ever felt into Divine (GodSelf/ I am God also) Will and then examined the relation to your role on Earth?
If you were going to contribute your wisdom to others choosing embodied enlightenment what would it be?
What is your energetic relationship like with mass consciousness and spiritual or consciousness groups? is it a reflection of your soul state of being or human nature? or Both?
Who are you beyond role/ identity? (for me it is a sensation that has no words)
What does this sentence mean/ invoke/ create in you? -
In creation of energetic pathways - potentials not directives -
For those who will choose consciousness over automation.
For eons to come.

Banyan Story Time & Ryver Updates
Welcome Peter and Virginia! Lovely to have you here.
If you are not aware, we meet in the ethers each New Moon under the Banyan Tree – a gathering of embodied masters and ascended masters hanging together – to BE together for a time.
Tomorrow I will have an audio recording of a message from Yogananda. It was my commitment to myself to not share anything I did not live, so after he delivered the message to me on Friday night (party!), I have been sitting with it and letting it seep into my bones. I must say it is much different than El Morya. All heart, all compassion, and so much belly laughter! I look forward to hearing your experiences with it. He truly shows up as a friend and not a teacher. I wouldn’t say it’s channeled but translatedJ - forever dodging that word channel.
Good day, friends!
I wanted to round up some of the Banyan Tree experiences from the New Moon gathering on January 16th. I will say this was an intense one for me. I felt my body vibrating in such a manner it was almost irritating and I asked El Morya, “Is this too much?”
He said absolutely not, that everyone could ‘handle it’ and that it would get smoother each month as our humans ‘caught up’ with us, something we are bringing along in this embodied experience.
El Morya added that everyone hanging out not in a physical body knew exactly what it was like to be in one and interacted with us in the most efficient and supportive way to the expansion which occurs under the Banyan Tree.
Joanna seemed to feel that too. She said, “(I) actually felt and saw the tree grow slightly...like it shifted in some way. Expand is probably a better word. Seemed like the place to be for many beings! Standing room only.”
I too felt there were many more beings who joined us on the 16th and 17th than in previous gatherings. I sense the word got out that we were inviting the ‘ascended masters’ to hang out, and people were beyond excited – especially Mark and other ‘new’ and ‘lesser known’ masters who are really eager to interact with us all.
Karen shares a great experience about Mark below, but first I am going to share a dialogue from our Ryver community. Thank you so much for being so open with all of us in this GRAND space.
“Under the Banyan tree I experienced singing with the group. We were singing in the Indian language and I remember not knowing the words but singing along with the tune as best I could. A beautiful Indian woman, didn't feel a name but would love to know who she was, dressed in a sari came up to me and said I could hear you, it was sweet like honey floating through, I was so surprised as I didn't feel anyone could hear me singing, I smiled gratefully and thanked her!” – Juls
“I’m in travel mode today and airport hang time. Last evening was beyond words. Soooo powerful it was almost uncomfortable. And I kept going between realities when the human would need to tend to some travel or packing item. I had many experiences of meeting and talking to various masters. I’ll bet the Indian woman was Quan Yin. And I hung at the back when we as a group gathered to listen. I felt I was being introduced and wired up to be able to handle the intense energies And, today I’m in this wonderful bubble.” – Ruth
“Aha... Juls & Ruth. I saw a woman whom I did not recognize that in hindsight may well have been Indian. And yes, quite possibly Quan Yin. That resonates. And Ruth, I felt the intensity as well. I saw a few other faces. I experienced mostly an energy exchange without comprehension of a message. Just a wee tidbit, perhaps because I was pondering speaking from my Soul to other Souls (as opposed to speaking from human) I was given the analogy it was like using Bluetooth. It transfers info from one being to another over consciousness waves.” – Karen
“I felt a lot of activity, aware of many, the joy and sense of communion going on. Sharing of essences and woke up this morning for first time all week not feeling tired, simply nice balanced harmony.” – Xanthe
“Yesterday and last evening were very powerful. I too, like Ruth would describe my experiences as uncomfortable at times - the magnitude of the energies was intense. I felt like I was being shown so much all at the same time. I know I met several masters and was being supported in the uncomfortableness at times by them. I cannot say I experienced any singing and dancing - although that would have been lovely! Today, I do feel expanded and rewired - although still a bit groggy.” - Deneen
“Obviously, I was there too, I have no definite memories except when I arrived that many were already in levitation. I enjoyed listening to the energy of the grass below. Tonight, I also experienced what it means to get out of the gravity of the old earth or mass consciousness.” – Este
“My experience also included a grand dose of dancing and singing...the first time was levitated freeform playful "dance/flight" under the tree and among the wide expanse of branches. Later that day I went to a sacred land on Whidbey Island where there is a large skull of a baby grey whale...it was the first I ever knew or saw this place and the sign there asked visitors to sing so I began to be sung...songs that were wordless and very distinct came through and resonated in my body and relationship to the whale bones. I was invited to move my 11-sided dance/song sanctuary to that place...not sure if it will happen in physical but just going there (it is called Earth Sanctuary) was mysterious and expansive EEE. Then later in the night/dreamtime, I had a number of intentional explorations of multi-locating...where my awareness dissolved from the physical and into the omnicentric...
This morning my mom came into my dance class and said I'd appeared as a "spirit" in her room in the middle of the night. It sort of scared her since she worried maybe I had died or left my body. I do not consciously remember specifically visiting her but she said I appeared kind of "perched' on the windowsill. She has never said or seen anything like this before to/about me.
Then also this morning a dear friend who paints my body in huge oil canvases first shared an image she was working on of me perched on a stone at the edge of a precipice -- looking about to leap. ....Some of you may remember that I had a dream featuring a very similar image earlier this week...
I posted it in the dreams forum. Somehow, my conscious awareness of going to the Banyan and other places besides the one I am physically located in...and encountering people in the other than physical realms of freedom are not as vivid while they are happening...
Yet, there are these ripples or reflections in the world that indicate through keen synchronicity that something of the Body of Beyond is certainly at play with this EEE and visiting of the Banyan.
I want to thank Lauren and El Morya and all of you for being here...I "get" what he said about needing others to encourage remaining in the body. If it were not for the love, compassion and care I feel...as if I AM Quan Yin....for all the embodied beings on earth...I can't imagine why I would stay.” – Momo
“My experience with the gathering this month was I started to feel a smooth pull to it a day or two before, like I was already there and then on the new moon night I clearly sensed like a very crowded spot buzzing with activity and people -if floating around may be considered and activity, although it's just a metaphor. You know when you have to go to a gathering with some friends and they're already there and your kind of late and sense them there before you get to the place... That kind of feeling. And I didn't have any particular dream or feeling in the morning.” – Guillem
“I've had a lot going on within me this week, so this momentarily slipped my mind. When I entered the Banyan tree gathering, one of the first beings that came up to me was Mark. He seemed quite animated and like there was something he really wanted to share. And I wanted to hear it! Perhaps I was trying too hard, but the message did not and has not come into my human consciousness. I'm sure it got transferred through the "Bluetooth" from Soul to Soul, but I am still curious as to what Mark was trying to get across.” – Karen
I would write more but the magnitude of the experience beyond linearity has not sunk in yet enough to find words. Thank you all for sharing.
Please feel free to share your experiences below in the comments section. If you would like to join us on Ryver and have not received an invite, you can email Este at email@example.com.
RYVER FORUM DESCRIPTIONS
More about the New Moon gathering & an experiment
A message from all of us at the Center of Being (Lauren, Sar'h, El Morya, Babaji, Yogananda, Mark....and on)
You can hear it from people everywhere who have chosen enlightenment but have not yet stepped into being it.
The complaints echo like howling ghosts through the chambers of the limited human, and swirl up into the ethers of the collective consciousness of those in their "last lifetime."
"I am so bored. I am so sick of allowing."
Some of us, however, are left wondering: how in the ever living fuck can you be bored?
There's so much here to explore, play with, and create. Come play in the infinite, if you WILL.
Once you open up the senses that take you beyond the veils there is no way to be bored. Ever.
Just laying in bed last night (and after posting our new moon gathering information yesterday) Lauren was taken on a magical journey beyond the veils of maya in which she was shown the future self meeting and overlapping with the 'first' self and all that she have EVER created and will create, all folding itself into one infinite now moment.
Forget a fireworks show, this was so much grander. It was more stimulating and entertaining than any movie could be.
For those who are not living in the Magic of Being the majority of the day, we offer some ways to open up to the Magic of Being. Resist it and be bored still OR play with the experiment like a child. It does not matter to us. But you cannot complain of boredom, knowing it is all here for you at anytime.
Stop desensitizing yourselves. With food. With alcohol or pot. With endless movies and television and books. With the internet and channelled information.
Want to talk with an ascended master? We are right here! Talk with us.
Those channels are for other people, who are stuck, who are swirling, not for you anymore.
Sure, spend some time with these things if it still feels good, but also give yourself a BIG window of seemingly nothing. Or time with YOU.
At first, it may be a bit painful for the human, who has become so used to constant external energy stimulation that it won't know what to do.
Then, something shifts and your human calms down and quits calling opening up to the infinite "boring".
What a label for something so grand?!?! Seriously?!?!?!
Enter with ease into the magical world of your sensory being, where boredom is not even an option.
Being IS perpetual becoming. It is not static but infinitely dynamic. BEING, the consistent and constant unfolding of your divine nature. Of the experience of knowing your are God, also. Not as a mental concept but as an experience.
We repeat, how can this be boring?!
If one more person tells us they are bored, well, we will probably scream. Not really, we are having too much fun to scream.
Yet, please, if you will, take a look at how you are distracting yourselves with outside energy.
Or better yet, EXPERIMENT!
Trying finding a nice, clear space in your house or in nature.
Enter it sober and on an empty stomach. Those digestion juices take up more energy than you remember and take your sense of focus from the upper communication sources and sensory channels within you straight into the gut.
Give your digestive system a much needed break. (Those aren't allergies by the way - that's your body saying it does not need so much food anymore.)
Maybe just try going eight to twelve hours - while awake - without food and observe. Nothing drastic.
Put your phone in a drawer. Unplug the internet. Do it.
Unplug the router machine from the wall and watch how the energy in your space changes and opens up.
Now, clear the air of what is not yours. Take what is yours into the deep well of your being. The chalice of your being.
Then take some deep breaths and open your eyes inward - seeing through the eyes of the divine - and open to the magic occurring within the Universe(s) of You.
Be patient. If it is dark or dull inside. Wait. Breathe. Open.
Allow your I AM to take you on a journey never leaving your yoga mat or chair.
(Maybe not your bed, which should be reserved for sleep time. That's a different consciousness experience. How you interact in your dreams and awake is still much different, though that will change.)
Travel the cosmos of creation without lifting a finger.
Converse with the I AM, open to others who have completed their cycles of lifetimes on Earth - not to learn anything but to talk to a dear friend with no agenda, who is not trying to sell you anything.
We can promise you will not be bored and the treasures will be worth leaving the human comforts behind for an hour or so.
Soon, this hour will turn into four. Then into days. And into weeks. And then it will become timeless.
Overcome by the beauty of the world beyond the veils of maya is an amazing place to reside. Do not fear you will lose the physical body. It is rooted on Earth with even a tiny kernel of intent that does not waver. It is safe.
In my human life in 2008, I went on a long eight-day hike into the woods. I only had some oatmeal and coffee and a few dried fruits and nuts and no phone. There was no shower or flushing toilet. You don't need to be this extreme. It is only an example.
For the first three days, I was miserable. What was I to do with myself - without all my distractions and external energy sources - the phone being the hardest to give up for the journey?
By day four, I had opened to the magic of the forest.
The sound of the flies' wings beating a thousand times per minute.
The moose ever so quiet steps that I would have gone unnoticed without my new keen sense of hearing that returned after all the stimulus disappeared.
The smell of the blooming flower that was a football field away.
The freshly sprouted grass glowing neon green in the vast sea of rich, brown soil.
The rainbows illuminating off the mountain glacier.
The feel of the ice cold water on my sore feet after a long day's hike.
The whispers of the trees that said, "Finally, you can hear us!"
Experiment with it on your own.
And if and when you are ready, join us on January 16th for an experience of lifetimes underneath the majestic Banyan Tree, while your human rests in the comfort of your own home.
Try coming on a empty stomach. Try turning your internet router off. Place your phone on off or in a drawer far away from your body. Definitely come sober.
You think the drink relaxes you. Instead it takes your open energy and twists it beyond recognition into something that is not yours.
We are not telling you what to do, but if you visit the Banyan Tree, respect it enough to come as pure you without the consciousness-altering substances in your blood stream.
When you do drink, if you do, simply watch without judgement (we do not judge you but simply bring the light of awareness) hows it moves through your body, especially the blood and nervous systems.
Try the same thing with food. Watch with your inner vision how the food moves through and interacts with your body. Do not stop your habits (except for a brief pause for the New Moon gatherings), simply watch how they move through and interact in your body of consciousness, as you call it.
Open your eyes not to the physical illusion in front of you but to what lies beyond it.
No fear. All trust of Self - no one else.
Behold - The Magic of Being Enlightenment - unfolds and unfolds and unfolds.....and unfolds.....and unfolds......and unfolds....
And none of it is boring.
In honor of YOU!
The Center of Being contributors in sovereign support and recognition of your GRANDness
I've been talking with our contributors about what the next New Moon gathering on January 16th will look like.
First, the ascended masters who have the joy of existing beyond the Veils of Maya (our current series) would like to communicate with us all about how they "got past" the linear nature of human life. They said they will be open for discussion about that experience. If you would like, they offer to provide some insight about moving beyond the Earth time constructs. What "worked" for them without it being in a teaching format. This is not a mystery school, they add, but an opportunity to share.
Next, the ascended masters would like to hear from those embodied. They recognize that our experience in this different time and space of embodied enlightenment is much different for us than it was them. They would love to know - in distilled soul wisdom form, not human complaining - what truly makes it unique for you.
El Morya says, "We get that your experience is unique and different from most of ours. You never fail to tell us this."
"Over and over again," he says laughing. "Yet, it would be beneficial if you could tell us how it is different, so that we may hold an understanding beyond surface level."
I am doing some research for a book and came across El Morya's initiative for entering his etheric retreat in Darjeeling.
I add it below and translate it into the common language with the help of El Morya, who is now shouting out word replacements. This is my life:P
"There may be some who come to the retreat (now the Banyan Tree)...but their motives are not pure. They are self-seeking. They want power not Glory in God (the experience of the God Self), but for the vainglory of the synthetic self (human identity) which they refuse to surrender (integrate). They are told politely by the gatekeeper that those who enter must leave the slippers of the lesser self at the door. Those who are unwilling to take off the shoes of the shadowed self may not walk upon this hallowed ground."
That being said, we have no gatekeeper. It's not needed.
Yet, if you don't take your shoes off, there is no way in.
Some "tips" -
Create a quiet place without interfering energies if you would like to join us while awake.
It is also great and possibly even better to visit the Banyan Tree in the dream state on the night of December 16th.
Better yet, try both.
If you will, please share your experiences.
I will create a post for this purpose, so maybe write down your experience notes.
I really sense this is such a nice expanded experience to gather in the etheric.
As soon as a gathering happens in the physical, it is almost impossible that the limited human does not appear.
I know this will change, and I also sense gatherings like these pave the way for that to happen.
COME FLOAT WITH US - BAREFOOT!
IN HONOR OF YOU!
I will be typing up my Prognost notes and sharing them on the Ryver community forum.
Depending on the material - if relevant - it will appear in posts.
With it being my last in-person event for the foreseeable future,
I see this space moving away from the Crimson Circle cloud.
The Center landed next to them for a bit to share,
and now its time to go back out into its own space.
Surely, we will return at some point to check in again.
And it is all appropriate.
