Greetings, Dear ones. We are the Council of Light and we love you dearly.

We are on this day wishing to bring you encouragement on your journey. You continue to create massive change, even when you feel a bit overwhelmed by the chaos that change generates. You have heard the discussions of the “collapse” of your various systems. We invite you to see these events in a new way. Instead of “collapse” we prefer the word, “transformation.”

In truth, nothing is collapsing. Your social, economic, political, and religious systems are undergoing massive transformation, just as you are. We have heard you speak of how your old ideas, beliefs, and identities are now “gone.” You think they have “collapsed.” Dear ones, it is transformation, not destruction. It is change, not death. We wish you to know that transformation is occurring on this side of the veil, also, thanks to you. And we do not thank you in sarcasm. We truly thank you for the transformational times for it allows us to expand and grow with you.

And so it is with great love and compassion that we remind you of your great work. It is appreciated more than you know. There is more to come with increasing speed, as you near 2012 and thereafter. The Mayan emissaries planted the seeds and held the energies with the ones you call Anasazi until it was no longer necessary—when you could take the mantle of Creator.

Transformation does not come easily to most humans. Even your American First Peoples could not welcome the massive transformations that came to their beloved lands of what you call North America. Even today, they still struggle with the letting go of the old ways. And so it is that the global transformations are shaking up and challenging Earth people in the same way. You know from first hand experience what it takes to let go of old ways and that gives you deep clarity as to what the rest of the world is now going through.

Around your world, many are leaving the planet through storms, floods, earthquakes, drought, famine which sounds like calamity. We assure you there is no calamity or collapse. Just transformation.

The tighter anyone tries to hold the old systems to keep them from transforming, the more difficult the experience. You know this from your own experiences.

You are witnessing the obvious transformation of your monetary and political systems, most recently demonstrated in your U.S Congress. Barak Obama did not come here to preserve the status quo. Many of you wanted him to help preserve and strengthen what you call liberalism. It is obvious that is not his purpose. His purpose it to ease the transformational process, not try to conserve the old ways. You cannot figure him out because he truly does not fit any of the old models. That can be frustrating for many of you and he is feared by many others who are trying desperately to hold together the old belief systems. These forces are clearly evident.

As you can see by your news that these forces are exerting whatever influence they have to prevent the transformations. These forces are on Earth in human form and still others work through humans who, consciously or unconsciously, allow them to. We do not wish to stir your fears. There is nothing to fear but we do intend to provide our perspective for you to discern for yourself what is true and what is not. You are safe and the information we provide is for your understanding for so many of you see the unfolding events and wonder why things are not changing more smoothly.

You may have heard the expression, “When Light hits, Dark gets tough.” There is some truth in that because Dark resists the Light, not from some evil intent, but from fear. Dark has performed its duties as repository of duality for so long, that it is reluctant to release its purposes. Dark is afraid of being consumed by Light, just as many of you fear being consumed by your own Soulselves. Like you, Dark fears that it will disappear into nothingness if it integrates and unifies with Light.

Transformation is not death. Transformation is integration of Dark and Light into a crystal clear Light of Unity. You see, Light itself is transformed when it integrates with Dark, for as long as they exist in duality, they, too, are not whole.

Allow yourself to acknowledge your own fear of your Soulself and your distrust of Her and then consider the events of your times. Humans, the creators, have a deep abiding fear of disappearing into nothingness and have created many religious beliefs out of a desire to create an eternal existence in the “afterlife.” We tell you now that you have tried to re-create that which you already are: an eternal and everlasting Soul. But because you have not yet fully remembered who you are, you continue to cerate or seek eternal life. You cannot create or find what is already. What Is, Is. The Isness of You is the Truth of You. You Are. It is our intent to assist you to awaken into the Unity of You. The integration of all parts of you, light, dark, and indifferent into the Unity with your Soulself is important for the continued expansion of all creation.

Practicing your breathing is the most gentle path to integration with All That You Are. Through the Breath, you gently release your fear of Self. You begin to realize that you cannot disappear into nothingness. Instead you become more clear as to your true identity as a creator-god-being..

We know many of you still fear your own Soulselves even as you practice your breathing. Even this one, Terry, has acknowledged that he has yet to take the one deep final breath into his own Soulself. (He gives us permission to use this example.) He has acknowledged his own fear and doubt, even as he continues to practice Breath. So many of you are in this same place of doubt and of who you are. On the one hand, you “believe” who you are and on the other, you cannot fully integrate into You for there is a large aspect of you who is fearful of losing totally its identity.

You identities are not who you are, but you have come to believe in them. Even as he writes, this writer is in doubt of our words, but wants so much to move beyond doubt and fear, that he allows us to speak to him—and to you, dear ones—to remind all of you that you are Divine and Eternal and you always were.

It is from your desire to release your amnesia that you call on us to remind you that you are our family, that you are much more than physical human identity. And so we continue to work with you, our family, to assist with your remembering. And you are remembering for your world would not itself be in the throes of transformation if you had not first chosen to awaken to All That You Are.

You are Divine Creators and just as you have undergone your own sometimes painful transformation, so, too, is the rest of your creation following in your footsteps.

And so we wish to reassure you that all is well and we encourage you to continue to breathe and, with ease and grace, remember who you are.

You are not disappearing. Rather, you are becoming MORE. You are, through your integration, expanding into the true You and into true Life. You are becoming whole.

We are the Council of Light and we love you, each one of you, so dearly and so completely.

 

I was privileged to DreamWalk1 my Dad this week. He transitioned Monday morning, May 14th, exactly seven days past his 90th birthday.

I was concerned that perhaps it was not possible to offer this service to him since I had not talked with him about it while he was still able to communicate on the human level. But I had several “conversations” with him energetically.

About two weeks before his crossing, he became rather alert and clear and asked for the family to gather around. He sang some of his favorite hymns, quoted some favorite scriptures, and was more present than he had been for some time.

I didn’t make it to the hospital in time to actually witness all this, but I did talk to him energetically in the car on my way there.

After that day, I didn’t feel his presence so much with me; however, I continued to prepare myself just in case he wanted a DreamWalk. I did have some doubts and second-guessing about my ability. This was the first DreamWalk I had done on my own since taking the DreamWalker Death Transition™ School a couple of years ago.

After consulting several physicians and a lot of soul-searching, the family decided it was time that we let Dad go. We reluctantly placed him in hospice care and finally on May 14th I received an early morning phone call from one of my brothers telling me Dad was deteriorating quickly. Soon after the phone call, I began the two-hour road-trip to southeastern Ohio. Sometime between 8:15 and 8:45 am, I began to sense Dad’s energy. We began to talk and I explained to him that a white light that he might see was the disconnection of the cord linking him to the physical world. I told him that was OK to do that and the white light was just the beginning. I reminded him that I would be available to accompany him on the path to the “Bridge of Flowers” if he wanted me to.

I arrived at the nursing home where he was being cared for. My nephew met me at the door, hugged me, and whispered in my ear, “Grandpa passed on about 8:30.” Truthfully, I was not surprised and a bit relieved because I knew he had endured so much in the past few years. At this point, I still wasn’t sure if he wanted a DreamWalk. I spent the afternoon and evening with my mom and the rest of the family.

The next morning, Tuesday, on my way home to Dayton, I began to feel Dad’s energy once again. Suddenly, I knew where he was. I sensed him at the Bridge of Flowers. He had been a minister and favored dark suits and black ties. There he was, looking nearly fifty years younger in his suit and black tie, grinning that contagious grin that I’ll always remember, and waving good-bye. But I felt he wasn’t quite ready to take that final step into the arms of the angels whom I could sense were already celebrating his return. Instead, I sensed that he was waiting to see that everything was OK here. Tears of joy flowing down my face, I stopped at a convenient rest area along the highway, and just sat on a park bench and allowed the celebration to take place in my heart.

On Wednesday the day of the viewing, I awakened early and sat in my office to practice deep breathing while listening to one of my favorite CDs, “The Silent Path,” by my friend, Robert Coxon. Once again, I began to feel the presence of my dad. I felt him on the Bridge. I saw that grin. He waved one more time, and then, still grinning, he reached out his hand to the Grand Beings who were there to welcome him home. He was gone.

I turned away from that beautiful bridge and breathed my energy fully back to this side.

I am touched and honored beyond words that he chose to gift me with this experience.

I’m grinning, too.
