Do you know what you believe?
In every moment you are given the opportunity to recreate yourself. Who you are is as malleable as play dough. And you have experiences every day that allow you to make choices indicating who you are in the moment.
Who are you being? Are you peace? Are you compassion? Are you freedom? Are you happy? Are you expressing joy and beauty in all that you are and all that you do?
Or are you angry at some one or some thing? Do you feel stuck in your job or a relationship or life itself? Do you feel that life would be wonderful if only . . . (you fill in the blank.) Are you afraid of anything like war perhaps?
The Truth is you are a Divine being with Divine qualities, part of God, living on planet earth full of its illusion and mistruths. Those illusions and mistruths make you forget who you really are. They make you feel separate from all things, from God, from your Divine Self.
If you feel, or perhaps have even pledged, that you are a Lightworker here to shed more light on Planet Earth, then your job is at hand.
Your job may include gathering in groups for prayer and meditation, or traveling to sacred sites to activate this, or open some portal, or whatever you feel your job entails.
But, my friend, your greatest work is how you live your life every day. Your greatest job and often the most challenging one is the choice you make in who you are being right now. Are you the illusion or are you The Truth. Are you a person being tossed around by the whims of the Universe or are you The Divine creating your reality in every moment, ever One with God, always with your mind and heart on the greater Truth?
Are you genuinely compassionate and radiating love or are you merely pretending? Are you still angry at your former spouse whom you felt did you wrong? Are you still angry at yourself for that mess you got yourself into perhaps financial or romantic in nature? Do you find yourself angry at God in certain moments?
Its time to be real – in Truth – on all levels. Its time to stop pretending that you are something you are not. Its time to stop pretending to yourself and to everyone else.
Are you afraid? Then admit it. Are you angry? Then admit it. Recognizing and acknowledging that these things exist and are part of who you are is the first step in the process of healing.
How in touch are you with what you really believe?
Most people think they believe one thing, but in truth, they believe another. Why is that? Because most people think their beliefs are what they understand with their logical mind.

But when I say, “What do you believe?” I’m talking about what beliefs, or fears, or judgments do you hold that are running your life. Those patterns that continually run on automatic pilot that cause such havoc – the ones most people do not even look at.
You affirm wellness, yet you remain sick. What do you truly believe that is causing that to be so?
You affirm affluence and abundance, yet remain in financial struggle. What do you truly believe that is causing that to be so?
You affirm that you want, are ready for, and are worthy of love, yet you don’t have an intimate relationship. What do you really believe that is causing that to be so?
You affirm that you are Peace, yet certain people or situations really set you off, make you angry, or cause you to react or to judge them as wrong. Take a look at your judgment of the rightness or wrongness of the war for example.
We say, as Lightworkers, that there is no right or wrong or good or bad. We say that “God Is” and there is nothing else. So every person, place, and thing on planet earth and the entire known and unknown universe is part of God. We say there is perfection and Divine timing in all things. Yet, often, we view world events as wrong.
These are my definitions of the words “to understand” and “to know.” To understand something means to comprehend it with the logical mind. To know something to truly believe it – is to understand it, not just with the logical mind, but with every part of your being body, mind, and soul. What you “know” is what your true beliefs are.
Here is an interesting example: One of the Ten Commandments from the Bible reads: “Thou shalt not kill.” Pretty simple to understand. There are no added clauses, exceptions, or disclaimers you know all the additions lawmakers create when making laws. This law just says “Thou shalt not kill.” You will also notice that it doesn’t say anything about “Thou shalt not kill other people.” It doesn’t say that. It also doesn’t say “Thou shalt not kill other people that are like you, having the same beliefs, the same skin color, the same dogma.” It says “Thou shalt not kill.” So, as I interpret this, it means that killing, of anything, is not O.K. with God. That’s how I read it anyway.
Yet there are piles of people who say they believe in the Bible and what it says. But, if you look at their actions, they don’t follow that basic law. They kill all kinds of things. They kill other humans for believing in a different God. They killed certain people that were supposed to be witches. They kill women and children and take over other countries for “God and Country.” Seems a little strange to me since the Bible says “Thou shalt not kill.”
They also kill animals for food. They kill insects because they are annoying. They kill the planet by polluting everything. They kill the rainforest in the name of progress. So for those people who do those things and say they believe in the Bible – what they believe and what they understand are two very different things. They may understand what the Bible says. But they don’t really believe it now do they?
Now I’m not saying you should or should not believe in a law mentioned in the Bible. That is entirely up to you and your own inner guidance. I’m just saying as someone who grew up in a Christian home, I noticed some inconsistency between what was being said and what was being done by people who claimed they believed the Bible.
If your physical body, your emotional body, your mental body, your spiritual body, and any other bodies I’m not even aware of that make up who you are aren’t lined up in agreement about what you believe, then what you think you believe with the logical mind will NOT prevail.
Here is an example that happened to me personally. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve been given many opportunities to understand my true beliefs in the last several weeks. This one was the most dramatic.
My former husband, Raven, decided to visit one of our friends, Judith Moore. I decided it would be a nice opportunity to get out of the house for awhile, so the whole family piled into the jeep. When Raven started it up, it was revving too high. So he turned off the engine and started it again. It seemed to calm down the engine. The entire way over it was revving too high. Suddenly Raven lost steering and brakes. We were going down a really windy road and there wasn’t time to re-crank the car. He had hold of the steering wheel as tight as he could and his foot jammed to the floor and he had no control of our vehicle. We went careening off a cliff. The jeep skidded to a stop teetering on the edge. We could have tipped and rolled several times at any moment.
We decided to not move any more than we had to thinking that repositioning our weight might cause us to tip over. Jesse was almost upside down hanging from the safety harness in his car seat.
Now this is one of those moments when you can’t pretend. You are who you are. You believe what you believe. And in that moment I discovered that not all aspects of myself were in alignment when it came to safety. I remained emotionally and mentally quite calm. I wasn’t crying or screaming or any other kind of reaction like that. My mind was very active trying to figure out the fastest and safest thing we should be doing to get ourselves out of this predicament. I also turned to God for assistance and quickly did a little meditation creating a column of light (like a steel rod) from heaven, through the Jeep, into mother earth to stabilize the vehicle. But, my body was flipping out. My heart was pounding and the adrenaline running through my system was almost unbearable. My body was terrified.
It all turned out fine. About 6 cars stopped the instant we went off the road. A big white truck pulled up behind us, a large hook and chain was placed on the back axle, and we were pulled to safety. Then the truck just drove away. We never even got to say thank you except by waving as the truck went by.
Now I did the best I could in the moment. And I feel I did pretty well. Most of me stayed calm and I didn’t mentally go into fear. But the fear was very real nonetheless. So, in that moment, was I “at one” with all things? Was I at peace within myself and my world regardless of what was happening? No. My truth in that moment was fear. Physical fear. Pure and simple.
Realizing what your current truth is allows you to change your current truth. Truth is as you define it. And your job is to discover your truth about everything and change those truths you hold that are no longer serving you. You have to discover the truths that are illusion and replace them with the big Truth the Divine Truth the Truth that keeps you ever connected to God.
Its easy, in the moment, to discover what your mind believes. Just observe what you are thinking. And its also quite easy to discover what is happening in the emotional body. How do you feel? That’s a pretty easy question to answer.
But the physical body and the subconscious mind are trickier to get in touch with. Sometimes the easiest way to discover what they believe is to begin a dialogue with them almost like they are separate from you. I have found journaling very beneficial. The easiest time to seek The Truth is while you are in the middle of something whether it be an upset, an argument, or whatever. The stronger the emotions, the easier it is to get to the root cause of them.
So, while you are in the middle of it, or just after something that upset you has occurred, sit down with yourself and ask some questions. I define something that upset you as anything that takes you away from feeling centered and balanced or not in joy. Write down both the question and whatever answer pops into your mind.
For example, say a friend just called you and something they said upset you. When the call is over you notice that you are really not feeling pleased with the conversation or how you are feeling right now. Get out your journal and ask yourself questions like: “Why did my friend’s comment about ______ (fill in the blank) cause me to feel _______ (again fill in the blank).” Write down whatever answer you get. Usually the answer automatically leads to many more questions. Keep following up with another question until you feel you have discovered the “root cause” of the problem. Usually it will be very obvious when you have found your truth.
You may want to continue with questions like: – “Do I have a fear, or belief, or judgment that made me react so strongly to the comment? – Did I experience something in my past that this comment is bringing up for me? – Is my reaction related to a larger issue? And on and on.
Once you uncover an underlying fear, or belief, or judgment, be sure to ask the all important question: “Where did I first take on this false belief, this fear, or this judgment?” When you know the event and circumstance that anchored in this belief, then you have easy access to its transmutation and complete healing.
This can sometimes be done by simply using logic – explaining to your subconscious that “I know in the past this thing happened, but it isn’t possible for that to happen to us now. We are grown up, those people no longer have an influence in our lives, etc.” Sometimes you just intuitively know what to say to change the belief.
Other times you might look to something like Dolphin Spiral Technology which works specifically in this area to permanently transmute and heal mistruths whether you are able to access the root cause or experience that anchored it in or not.
Or you may wish to have someone facilitate your release and transmutation of the belief. There are many gifted people out there who assist in this kind of work. It is often my main focus when assisting private clients.
We are all being asked to “stand up and be counted.” If we are the Light of the world, then that light needs to be clear of any false beliefs. Its time to shine light on your own illusions dissolving forever their negative influence in your life.
