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.
More to come!
If you have not read Balthasar The Magus, you can do so here if it calls to you: www.amazon.com/Balthasar-Magus-Lets-Walk-Three/dp/0980350654
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.
Please join me in welcoming Guillem's guest post to our community.
It was lovely to talk with a dozen of you on our conference call Tuesday.
I am continuing to write but feel more so energy building as to what will come this summer. El Morya also is ready to add his wisdom, yet I'm not quite ready yet to hold that consciousness in my physical body right now.
Thanks for your patience, and happy Easter weekend and full moon experience.

The Conscious Breath
Today was a beautiful sunny day. After some windy, rainy days, the spring is finally displaying its splendor, and I went out for a walk in the forest.
I was depressed and miserable. Very tired of doing… nothing! I was walking up the path only to hear my mind mumbling and groaning and I couldn’t help but thinking I would reach my favorite spot in the middle of nowhere and lie down to rest for a while.
So I did. My favorite spot is a place under a huge pine tree hidden between bushes where the ground is sloping and has the form of my back. Once there I just gave up and slowly fell asleep beginning to drift away in that space between here and there. It felt good.
All of a sudden, a sound of footsteps woke me up and there was a dog a couple of meters from me. He started to bark and I stood up a bit scared. Then another dog appeared, and another, until there were four of them. I saw they were greyhounds and thought these ones are not dangerous. I stepped outside of my favorite spot and half scared half in trust walked away while one of the dogs chased me barking.
I walked and walked feeling a bit upset like when you’re in a sweet sleep and the alarm clock sounds furiously waking you up in a non-natural way. I still felt tired and a bit sad.
You know, those of us who have chosen embodied enlightenment always have moments of feeling tired in the body and the mind without an apparent reason. It’s the “tiredness” of the process. Yesterday I was in a Zoom conference call with a group of near and dear friends who are – just like me – into this “business” of embodied enlightenment. One of the topics we talked about was just the inability of the physical body to accommodate more light in the cells as more of the soul is embodied in biology. It’s ok, you have chosen this path but then who says the physical body is ready for it? But once chosen you have to cope with it and allow the body its time, and it’s not always an easy thing.
I kept walking though the main path feeling out of sorts and I decided to stop and get myself back in the forest. I found a good place and sat in the lotus position. With my human barely doing nothing I started to breathe very consciously and soon enough I was feeling energies seeping in though one of my fingers – then another finger, an arm and finally my hands. I was breathing fresh and deep and started to feel re-charged and alive.
I heard footsteps on the foliage and holy shit I saw another dog nearby – they seem to be loving me! There was a man too and they walked away. This time though the visitors didn’t upset me as I was feeling nothing in the world would take me out of my sweet re-charging breathing…
I remember the first time I breathed like this – and allow me to digress a bit here… It was 3 years ago or so and the situation was practically the same: one day I was with anxiety and a very uncomfortable boredom and I went for a walk just like today. I sat in the first place I found in the forest – not very far from today by the way – and started to breathe like my breath was penetrating and re-charging my body. I think that day was very important because I experienced for the first time I guess what these breatharian people talk about when they say they re-charge themselves with prana from nature or the universe or whatever. Have you seen their perpetual smile? Some of them have even replaced food and even water for this form of pranic nurturing.
Anyways, back to today’s experience. This type of breathing for me is like I am breathing with my senses or my energy body. It’s not just breathing with my lungs for relaxation but putting my awareness a half a dimension away and breathing from the infinite pool of energy available there. The soul resides in that “a half a dimension away” spot! You don’t go there with the mind but with the senses. I think I also talked about this in my latest posts. And by the way this is the state of consciousness that Aliyah can facilitate too.
Wow, I felt different from that point on. No more exhaustion and existential boredom. I got up from my “forest temple” and started to walk back home feeling like I wanted to write about this experience, and when this happens – that I feel excited to write about it – it means that it is a breakthrough in my process and I’m alive and in the “right track”! That’s the very reason I started this blog!
To sum it all up, no matter how bored you feel with your human in this embodied enlightenment process, there is always a way out, and this is the conscious breath, but real conscious breath!… How do you know you’re doing it right? Well, because you feel the air you’re breathing in is no longer air but life itself! You feel like you’re eating, like your physical body is literally feeding from the breath. But this life force energy is a half a dimension away, at least the way I sense it. You go there and grab it, and it really feels unlimited. If you breathe in your soul, if you’re nurturing from your soul, the fucking sky is the limit! So these are my questions to me and to you: are you able to move your awareness a half a dimension away to access the real Self that you have already chosen to become? Are you breathing with your mind or are you breathing for real?
And now, I just allow myself to forget about all this until the next time I remember to allow myself to nurture from my consciousness. I’m totally ok with that.
