In a mere 14 words, J. Adams Snyder gives us food for thought as we discern the distinction between dying and death. There are not the kissing cousins we might automatically assume, but rather radically different processes.
You are bigger than you realize. You are more than the 3D constructs that surrounds you.
Have you considered how each and every one of your experiences (experiences of all kinds) shapes you, helps form you and offers you repeatedly new choice points in living.
Consider this: Are you living a life of fullness? Do you feel the zing of aliveness? Do you feel inspired (literally translated to taking in the breath of God)? Have you fed your soul? Can you see with an expanded perspective? Do you lead with your heart?
And in moments of reflection, are you able to discern the lessons of your soul?
You are a multidimensional being, Starfish. We encourage you to to step up, step forward, step into your fullness and live the higher dimensional life you have been invited to live.
And so it is.
Soul mates…you’re familiar with the term. Often people think it means the p-e-r-f-e-c-t match, the absolute one-and-only, or the one and only reason you have incarnated in this lifetime.
Soul mates are individuals with whom we share a karmic past and they come into our lives (again, and, often, again and again, throughout the ages) like sand in the oyster that catalyzes the creation of a pearl, layer by layer.
A soul mate can serve as an irritant, a stretcher, an eye-opener, a challenge as well as a sanctuary, vibrational match, or like home. In other words, soul mates, as the name implies, stretch our souls. The interaction with a soul mate can make us aware and move us into a place of higher consciousness. It is not a constant barrage of hearts and flowers because the soul mate’s job is to help move us beyond our individual comfort zone and into an expanded awareness.
We might say the relationship provides a multidimensional push. If you are aware of these distinctions, you will be able to dissect the relationship into the 3D reality as well as the broader soul, higher self perspective. And that understanding will help you when the relationship has played out its purpose.
Gifts come in many forms and faces, right?
This beautiful prayer honors the powers and gifts we receive from Mother Nature on a daily basis. There is such strength, expansiveness and wisdom in this blessing.
I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun;
Radiance of moon;
Splendour of fire;
Speed of Lightning;
Swiftness of wind;
Depth of sea;
Stability of earth;
Firmness of rock.
—Ninefold Blessing to the Elements
We know you are trying. We know it has been challenging, and there are moments when you have lost your footing and, more importantly, questioned your faith. We ask you to take a deep breath. Stretch out all the kinks and stand anew, leaving your worries behind you.
In another dimension, you agreed to the path that is about to unfold before you. In your 3D incarnation, you do not remember these agreements, but rest assured these developments have been made with your full co-operation and collaboration. You have been shifting and unfolding and operating from a high heart. You are ready to step up to the multidimensional. You will like this. You will be like a fish to water. You will feel HOME.
Please do not fret. Go with the flow as much as you can. Say yes more than you say no. Listen well to your intuition.
You are loved, guided and protected.
And so it is.
Accept that the connection is always present.
Place yourself in a receptive state of allowing with no agenda or predetermined thinking.
Be open. Remember anything is possible.
The connection is a vibration. And the vibration is a kind of light.
It is closer than you think.
And, remember, if you think it’s a sign, it’s a sign.
And so it is.
A Message to Lightworkers – January 8, 2018
The latest guidance from the Ascended Masters, Galactics, Earth Elementals, Faery Elders, Angels and Archangels known as the Collective:
Greetings, dear ones, and welcome to this astounding and co-Creative year of 2018!
Our writer has a question to ask, which is utterly relevant to all Lightworkers’ situation at present . . .
COR: My friends, over the past year I have received numerous emails from people who are at their wit’s end.
They are feeling so ill and exhausted from a disorder or illness that is often not properly diagnosed, that they say they are are ready to just let go of their physical body.
Or they are so tied up in financial debt and lack, so unable to manifest what they need to live their lives on a basic level, that they are feeling increasingly desperate, and feel to be sinking lower by the day.
Or their self-esteem and feelings of self-worth, and disconnection from their life purpose, is such that they feel have no voice, no vision, no reason to be here.
I feel strongly that all of this is related somehow, even though these seem to be separate maladies.
The worst part is when they say they keep trying to hear their Spirit team, but can’t, and muscle testing doesn’t seem to be working for them either.
Please give us your viewpoint on what is happening!
The Collective: What is fascinating to us, and quite positive and exciting, is that all that you describe here, dear one, are exactly the experiences lived by a race of people passing from one era of evolvement and consciousness into another.
We are aware that you have often heard people refer to “Ascension symptoms,” and we would say, that one could call these that, if needed.
But what we see goes well beyond symptoms in the sense of “something’s wrong, and I need to fix it,” and even beyond the need to blame everything on the Ascension process.
None, and we mean None of the situations you describe have very much to do with what they are apparently about.
You read many years ago a declaration written by a wonderful Light Warrior known to you as Louise Hay, who stated, “The problem is never the problem,” and we could not agree more.
We will give you an example: When you see two children out at play, and one is clearly bullying the other, you can if you wish step in and stop the bullying.
Yet in your heart, you will know that there is a much greater issue at hand than the outer manifestation of any one moment of bullying.
You know inwardly that that child has internalized destructive behavior from someone in their home, or from images in the media, or a friend.
Or that they have carried past life tendencies into this life, and that these are part of the lessons they came to face in this current life. Or several of these.
And so you have the satisfaction of knowing that you rescued one child from one unhappy situation, but you do not kid yourself that your role as a peacemaker, as one who instills higher self-esteem, compassion, and empathy in young people is completed and done.
There is far more to your role than you expressed in that one moment, just as there is far more to both children’s life paths.
In the same way, the issues you name are not “one-offs”—they are not simply about money or health or love or life purpose, however large these issues may be.
These are all outer indications of a greater energy pattern that is being revised from the inside out—sometimes, on behalf of thousands or even millions of Earth beings, and not only for that one person.
The person involved will experience the bumpy ride of that transformation as it evolves, until they turn to fully look at the deeper issue and accept the transfiguration of it.
This is why, when one illness is cured, or one set of debts paid off, another debt or illness will in time come to take its place—because the deeper issue still has not been addressed.
Let us look at these issues—money and health and self-worth are some of the very great “triggers” that alert people to the fact that their entire being, from etheric essence to heart-mind to cellular structure, is undergoing an astounding, miraculous remaking.
Yet if one is suddenly out of money with no new income in sight, or experiences a prolonged, severe money shortage, as if Lack itself had pulled a chair up to the table and made itself permanently at home, that person will not feel to be a walking miracle.
They will only feel to be in a terrible situation that they cannot shake their way out of, no matter how hard they try, using manifestation techniques, meditation, visualization, or just plain hard work, to revise their situation.
All of that inner and outer work is fine, but they are not the journey itself.
The actual journey has to do with uncovering the essence of the challenge that the money shortage represents.
You will not be surprised when we speak of the vital importance of a flow of thoughts, objects, feelings, and energies in life—of releasing the need to hold on, to cling to any one outer condition.
Of the vital need to forgive yourself for the times you took up the aggressor or victim role in life.
Of the vital need to release those who were brave enough (on a higher level) to be willing to play a terrible, dense, unpopular role in your life.
You will not be surprised (because you know it already) when we speak of the need to just Allow some days—to sit with the problem and send it Love and thanks, even before you extract positive meaning and growth from it.
At that moment, you realize what you have called a problem is not a problem.
It is simply an outer condition, an expression of something that feels to you to be an energy imbalance and a blockage between what you prefer to have and what you have now.
And that like all outer conditions, it is constantly revising itself.
So that the moment you stop calling it Bad, or out of alignment with what you want, you free yourself from feeling defeated by it.
The moment you bless and thank it and stop blaming it or yourself, you free that condition to leave you, because it has nothing more to show you.
Though experiencing wealth, health, love, and outer accomplishment are all fine and good, for the most part, you did not come here for these.
You did not come to admire the outer conditions of your life as constantly smooth and satisfactory.
You came to dive head first into outer conditions that would require you to forgive and love them no matter how difficult and taxing they seemed to your logical mind.
No matter how annoying and unthinkable they are to your ego-based need to survive, to your need to distinguish yourself as “separate but safe.”
And to your need to “accomplish something” in outer terms.
And so, we are willing to bet as they say, that those who are unhappy with their finances have not lately put a hand over their bank statement or their wallet, and proclaimed, “I Love you and thank you for all you do for me! I AM blessed beyond my most beautiful visions. Multiply and be fruitful, my friend!”
We are willing to bet that those who are unhappy with their bodies have not lately blessed and thanked their body for all it does for them, spending entire days concentrating on what IS going well with their health, instead of investing constant energy and focus on what is not going well (thereby extending the condition).
We are feeling that these ideas, practiced daily and often throughout the day, are mainly untried by them.
Likewise, saying to the body part or illness or system that seems to be failing, “What have you come to tell me, friend? I AM listening. What message do you bring?”
Consistently asking such, until the heart-mind hears and reveals the answer.
No, the answer will not always be immediate. That takes a bit of practice, and a quiet mind that is actively expecting and receptive to higher wisdom.
We guarantee you, each and every one of you has a beautiful Spirit team, full of Love and empathy for all you travel through in this life, who are Constantly sending you messages of encouragement, wisdom, and understanding that would not naturally occur to you.
We say constantly to Lightworkers, “If you do not hear your team inwardly, tell them to send you Outer signs, symbols, signals, and messages.
“Outer indications of what path to take for greater Healing or increased Abundance or your life purpose—and the patience, self-Love, and thankfulness it takes to Accept those things.”
You will not find the solutions you seek while in the same state of mind that created the challenge to begin with, as one of your great scientists noted some time ago.
You must, within yourself, move to a level of acceptance, of no longer struggling against, of releasing resentment toward money or lack of life direction or your current job or relationship or physical state.
Acceptance and Love, with thanks for all it has brought you.
These challenges are not blocks along the road, dear ones. They ARE the road itself.
“But what if I want a peaceful life, free of these pains and distractions and feelings of loss?” you ask.
We would say, you can have it, the moment you actively choose such.
Are you willing to release the drama, the pain, the complaints, the expectation of trouble?
Because the third dimensional human is quite complacent and happy to stay in a rut on that front—another reason why these problems are squawking at you so loudly now, now that your vibration is moving so powerfully out of the third dimension.
The interesting, and quite challenging part of being willing to release your problems and no longer call them problems, is that the bully only loses interest when the one they are trying to upset doesn’t mind, and even enjoys their presence.
Where is the fun in that?
“Why should I stick around and be a thorn in this person’s life, when all they do is Love and accept me? That is too high a vibration for me to stand—I’m getting out of here!”
Do your “problems” or challenges love your resistance? Do they love your disdain and hatred of them?
Most assuredly—that is the gift.
They came to reveal that vibration, that resistance to What Is, so that you would become aware of it.
And they shall remain with you, for as long as you refuse to bless and Love them, and release them on their way.
For as long you, a powerful co-Creator, name them “problems.”
And so you will today inwardly ask your health or body part, your debt or your current income, your feelings about your spouse or lover, or other challenge:
“What have you come to tell me, dear one? I AM listening. I AM willing to learn. What I AM no longer doing, is feeling at a loss, as if I have been earmarked for trouble and suffering.
“I release the need to complain and resist my life circumstances. I loosen my grip. I release anger and resistance. I let go. I release, and flow down the stream of Life.
“I Love and accept this new higher vibration, and celebrate the Sat Yuga as a time of my highest visions coming to Life.
“And I remember now, Why I AM here, and What I have come here for, in the most joyful and fulfilling sense.
“I AM here to become my higher self, and I welcome him/her into my consciousness fully now. I give thanks!”
As do all of us, dear ones.
You cannot know how well you are Loved, and as we have said many times, very nearly envied (and greatly admired) for the bravery it took for you to incarnate in these powerfully transformative, often rocky and tenuous-looking times.
Namaste, powerful co-Creators in this Universe of Nebadon!
We love and are with you, always.
You are never alone.

About Caroline Oceana Ryan
Caroline Oceana Ryan is an author and speaker who channels the higher wisdom and guidance of the Collective, a group of higher beings assisting humanity as we Ascend into fifth dimensional life.
The following is my favorite healing story. I first heard this account from higher consciousness teacher, Caroline Myss, who learned this first-hand from her friend and our protagonist, David Chethlahe Paladin. And extra special bits were added by Lynda Paladin, our protagonist’s wife.
The story becomes a bit like the game, “Telephone,” in that in every retelling the story morphs a little bit this way and a little bit that way. I have heard this story countless times and repeated this story countless times, I now offer this to you like a tumbled stone that is well-worn with passage.
So, without further ado, let’s go back in time and let me introduce you to our hero:
David Chethlahe Paladin is a Navaho Indian living on a reservation in Arizona. David would laughingly say that his mother was a nun and his father was a priest. It turns out his mother became pregnant by a visiting priest. She, in turn, decides to become a nursing nun and leaves her son in the care of the extended family of their tribe.
David and his cousin spend a great deal of time leaving the reservation and going into town. They drink a lot, and they think life is better in the white man’s world. The local constabulary is forever returning the boys to the reservation. By the time David is 13 years of age, he is an alcoholic.
David and his cousin determine that they are going to make it off the reservation once and for all – and they do. They find their way to California, wherein they lie about their ages and sign up for work with the Merchant Marines, where David befriends another young man from Germany. He also begins drawing; some of his sketches include the eventual bunkers that the Japanese are building on the atolls in the Pacific Ocean.
World War II is declared. The US Army tells David that since he lied about his age with the Merchant Marines he has a choice. He can go to jail for a year or enlist in the army. David enlists. He is a teenager.
The army tells David as he is a Navaho, they are going to drop him behind enemy lines and use him as an information gatherer in their special services. David, using his native language, is to relay his findings to another Navaho in the army. Their language becomes a code that the Germans are unable to crack, much less decipher.
David is dropped behind enemy lines. Ultimately, he is captured and interrogated for information. The German officers find him useless and direct that he be sent to a death camp and executed as a spy.
Imagine, if you will, the scenes we all have invariably seen of the railroad station and the platform filled with lines of prisoners being pushed into box cars for transport to the camps.
Here is David. He is being pushed and shoved into a boxcar. There is German soldier behind him saying “Schnell, schnell” (quick, quick). David stops, turns around and looks at the German soldier. It is his friend from the merchant ship. The friend recognizes David and ushers him to a different box car that will send David to Dachau.
In the barracks at Dachau, David sees an older man, a fellow prisoner, drop something. David bends down to retrieve it. The guard, who has witnessed this moment, asks David, “Are you the Christ?”
The guard then orders that David’s feet be nailed to the floor and that David stand there with his arms outstretched for three days like Christ on the cross. Every time David would falter and crumple the guards would hoist him up again. In the middle of the night, someone would sneak in and cram raw, maggot-covered chicken innards into David’s mouth.
When the Allies open up this camp, they find David a mere shell of a man, weighing maybe 70 pounds, and speaking Russian*. They turn David over to the Russians. David later speaks English and gives his name, rank and serial number to the Russians who transfer him back to the US military.
David is sent to a VA hospital in Battle Creek Michigan where he spends the next 2 years in a coma. At the end of two years, his legs are encased in metal braces, similar to what polio patients used. David, a young man, maybe not even 21 years of age, is to be sent to a VA home for the rest of his life.
David asks if he can visit his family on the reservation. The answer is, “Of course.” David literally drags himself onto the reservation. He meets with the elders of tribe. They ask to hear his whole story. David tells them every horrible thing that he endured. He is full of anger, rage and hate.
The elders confer and tell David to meet them tomorrow at a designated point on the Little Colorado River. David agrees and at the appointed hour he arrives. One of the elders tethers a rope around his waist; others remove the braces from his legs. They hoist David up into the air and as they throw him into the raging current of the Little Colorado River, they say, “Chethlahe, call back your spirit or die. Call back your spirit or die.”
David would later say that those moments in the Little Colorado River were the very hardest of his life. He had to fight himself for himself. And he was able to see the big picture; he understood why things unfolded as they did. For example, he realized that the raw chicken parts were meant as a source of protein to sustain him so that he might live.
David Paladin was thrown into the river as a very broken – and broken on every level — man. And David emerged out of the Little Colorado River like the phoenix out of the ashes. He had metaphorically walked through the fire, or, in this case, swum through the currents, and had come out alive. He was born again.
And, that is what I think healing is all about for each of us. It is calling home our energy; it is calling home our disenfranchised pieces and parts. It is letting go of the toxic and the outdated. It is reclaiming ourselves.
David no longer needed his braces; he became a shaman, teacher and artist and went on to work with priests and addicts. He died in his middle years in the mid 1980s.
P.S. Remember David sketching during his tour of the Pacific and speaking Russian when the Allies first found him half-dead at the camp? It turns out that David was channeling, i.e., energetically merging, with the Russian artist Kandinsky. In fact, Kandinsky’s best friend came to the U.S. from Russia. The friend, the story goes, told the press that he felt as he had spent the day with Kandinsky.
Call forth the light.
Call forth the light.
Even amidst the darkest of moments — the shadows of treachery and trickery, the clouds of confusion and the eclipses of the soul — know with complete certainty that there is always a place of light. It can be the smallest flicker or a blinding brilliance, but it is unquestionably there.
Call forth the light.
Call forth the light.
Call out and beseech the light. Invite the light. Seek it out in any form or permutation. It is your touchstone, your guiding force and your spark of creation. It is also your pathway to ascension and your wellspring of unconditional love.
Call forth the light.
Call forth the light.
Dearest Ones, I beckon you to come forward. Show your face, bare your eyes and be present to this moment. Step into the circle and welcome the light as your pathway to transformation.
With full choice and conscious intention, take the first step into the pool of light and permit yourself to be purged of that which no longer serves you. Allow the light to cleanly burn away the effluvia of your days. Allow the light to heal, restore and shapeshift your essence into full clarity and resonance. Allow the light to elevate your vibration. Allow yourself to become illumined once again.
Call forth the light.
Call forth the light.
Call forth the light.
There is a soul “seed” of high vibratory, intracellular structure that is hardwired into all the layers of the body. The seed is buried deep within the pineal gland. This seed holds the essential connection with the Divine and the infinite mysteries.
For many women, this seed of potential is activated with childbirth; for others, the seed is potentiated by the birth of creative acts and/or divinely-inspired unions. There is creativity, sacred marriages, balancing the divine male and divine female, and, of course, unconditional love. This speaks to the God matrix: balance, connection, union, creation and unconditional love.
The seed carries a cellular memory of oneness with the Divine. The cells do not forget. once the seed case is cracked, the God code is opened and the God matrix is vitalized. It’s as if you plug yourself into Source and, the entirety of Source’s network, aka the God matrix, lights up in collaboration and co-operation.
It is all within you. You are hardwired to be in direct union with the Godhead (aka a modern mystic) by living your life honoring the divine union, honoring yourself with this realization that you carry the God within and by pursuing acts of creativity and balance.
Are you being creatively playful? Have you opened yourself to divine inspiration? Have you rested in the still point of balance? Are you able to love unconditionally?
The tiny whisper of the deeply buried soul seed is yearning for light and nourishment to sprout and grow. Are you ready to crack the God code and awaken the God matrix within you?
