INSPIRATION OF THE WEEK How is life different when “doing” comes from “being?”

The great BEING of our being is always present, waiting patiently for our personalities to awaken to the vast beingness that we ARE.

We so often create, speak, and act from the mind, from the little voice that thinks it’s in charge.

Of course we have been conditioned this way, and there is no need to judge ourselves for it!

However! The vast BEing that we are has so much more, what a funny way to say it… BY FAR so much more than our little minds have access to. The BEing we are has access to everything! IS everything!

Tapping in deeper, and deeper, and deeper-into the Power of this Presence-that needs nothing, lacks nothing, feels all peace, feels all love-this is the place from which, if we allow it, our actions can arise.

What would the world look like if all the BEings on the planet allowed action to arise from this deep well of beingness? How can we practice each day, to tap into this well, to drink of it’s mirthful and rich waters, fully potentiated to allow ‘the next most perfect action’ to arise, without attachment, without ‘needing to know,’ without fear of the future… What would it be like if we could all settle in to the power and potency of this arising, together, on this path of earth life? Wow! I can imagine… Can you?

Blessings!

Your Divine Calling

Are you feeling that there is more to life than what you are currently living? Have you got some kind of bug in you that just won’t go away, that is sneakily saying, “you’ve got something special to do… yes, you!”

It feels like it’s “time” for us to each claim this, even more fully! Yes! Even more fully than we have before. Maybe we’ve been close to actualizing what we really came here to do, and just maybe… there’s a next level, right around the corner, waiting for us!

I feel it in my life, and I want to let you know that I will be taking the steps to bring this Divine Calling fully into manifestation!

Please stay tuned as this evolves and grows and peeks its head out of the cosmic soil… I am committed to being and doing all I came here to be and do. Won’t you join me? We can support one another in bringing forth the best ‘us’ we have to offer and give to the world, in joy and service!

Love, Laura

Message of Love In Intense Times

Aloha!

You know, we are really in an amazingly intense time on the planet. Sometimes it feels like a joy ride and other times, well, many folks are confused and even a bit or a lot scared about what’s going to happen—earth changes? financial crises? weird behind-the-scenes trickery? It’s a lot to manage, while also trying to make ends meet, be a good person and do your life’s work.

I am happy to help us remember the key core BASIC #1 THING that is important—We are love. We shine our love and our light—this is our main job, our main dharma, our primary function. Through it all, we each have unique abilities, gifts, and patterns we are endowed with. The light and love that we are shining through that Unique Pattern IS the culmination of the gift we are here to give.

When we are shining this love, this light, when we are tuning in with the divine energies all around us, when we are uplifting and inspiring those around us—we are on purpose and our mission is successful, no matter what the outcome.

When we ourselves falter or feel ‘less than love’ or ‘less than loving,’ it’s simply time to reach out and ask for help from a friend or leader who can help us smooth out the rough edges of the moment.

Remember—the most important thing is for us NOT TO JUDGE OURSELVES as we tread the path. Are you doing the best you can? Have you done your spiritual homework? Are you seeking for greater understanding? Do you want the highest good of all? To whatever degree we each are able to hold these frequencies, Divine Love will match it and more, right back at us. And when we need help, it’s time to reach out! No worries!!! Our galactic, angelic and cosmic unseen friends, and our visible earthly inspired friends know what time it is. They know what’s up, they know what we are going through, and they know that we are doing the best we can.

IMPORTANT—Reach out to the Earthly Mother! Our planet loves us too! She only wants the best for us. Sit on the earth, talk with her in your own way, connect, and mostly — LISTEN! She will give us guidance at this wild-ride-time. If things like earth changes, comet elenin, wayward activities on a planetary scale are concerning you, go to your cosmic parents Mother Earth, Father Sun, Spirit, God, Love, Source. Connect more deeply than ever before.

Ask. Listen. Receive.

You are love and you are loved. Know that all is well. Know that you know that you know that you know, that all is well, and that you will be guided. 🙂

Ahura Mazda, Shine, Shine, Shine!

Go team!

Love, Laura

New Video Up :: Raw Brahs Meet XGym

Check it out! 3 hunky raw food brothers ‘feel the burn’ at XGym, my friend PJ’s super intense workout facility in Seattle.

PJ studying all the research about building muscles and nerves, and came up with this amazing protocol. “Failure is your friend,” says PJ. It’s all about going til you can’t go any more… Then your muscles say, “dude, we need to get stronger!” Since he switches protocols every seven weeks, your nerves say, “dude, we need to keep learning,” and therefore, while the nerves are perpetually “in training,” the muscles have no choice — they must get stronger and denser but can’t get bulkier because the nerves are still taking the attention by needing to focus on mastering the new routine. Also, the low weight methodology disallows micro-tears in the muscle, also responsible for big bulk, but not necessarily healthy.

The Raw Brahs, “On a Mission Not Yet Discovered,” enjoy a mostly raw diet. They are currently traveling the country making vids and wowing folks everywhere with their truly buff tricks, skills, smiles and humor.

What does this Fox say? Well, truly, I found my body get stronger after just three sessions! No kidding!! Super cool stuff.

What Do Forgiveness & Unconditional Love Really Mean?

Forgiveness and unconditional love point to Reality as opposed to illusion. We have co-created a conditional experience of reality based on beliefs, habits, emotional reactions, and our limited perceptions. This has been going on in the human experience for a very long time. The true nature of reality cannot be changed, altered or programmed. Love exists as the pure positive foundation of all of creation, no matter what we humans decide to do with our free will while we are here on earth. The Universe is set up to be a Loving Universe. Anything that does not vibrate with love, begins to disintegrate.To help us learn this lesson from the inside out there are Universal Laws. This is like a template or pattern upon which everything operates-the base operating system of creation.

The Law of Life is ‘as we sow, so shall we reap.’ As we take further steps into realizing the true meaning of this, we begin to realize it’s relationship to forgiveness.  If nothing can get to us except that we set it into motion, then the forgiveness  is ‘giving up the old for the new,’ and taking personal responsibility for what shows up in our lives. This is a radical concept and not easily understood if we subject ourselves to a philosophy that does not include past lives. Also our genetic lineage, affecting our dna, and our experiences in this lifetime, coupled with actions from past lives, create a ‘vibrational template,’ a veritable filter through which the divine cosmic energy of God-Life-Love must express every time we think, act, feel and imagine.

Thus the right use of our self-expression gifts from the divine becomes the paramount study for humankind, in righting the wrongs of the past, and correcting the errors created from our own non-loving thoughts, feelings and actions. Without understanding the connection of forgiveness to past lives and the imprints of our genetic lineage, it is very hard to grock that forgiveness is possible under certain circumstances. “The buck stops here” becomes our new motto when we realize our own responsibility in creation, and say YES to working with great awareness and full cooperation with the Law of Life. The Law of Life doesn’t work sometimes and not others. It is a Universal Law. For those of us lucky enough to realize this, we can begin to gain a foothold over our own thinking, feeling, actions and imagination-Every moment, not just some moments-and thereby reclaim custodianship of our own vehicles, choosing continually love and forgiveness of everything that comes our way from a place of true widsom.

Questions? Feel free to write in and ask whatever is most puzzling about this. It’s time we dig in and really get it, collectively and individually. I am doing my best to continually create divine awareness of my thoughts, actions, words and imaginations. It is an ardent task and a beautiful discipline. Justice “just is.” Unconditional love for ourselves and others as we all come to learn the truth behind this is true compassion.

Message From The Star Elders—The Time Is Now To Recalibrate Into The New

© 2011 Laura Chiraya Fox All Rights Reserved

Note from Laura: The Star Elders of the Council of Human Enlightenment have begun to share Messages for Humanity with me. Here is the first to come out publicly. Enjoy!

This is a time of great shifting both inner and outer. The inner promptings to do and be the YOU that you came here to be are STRONG. If you find yourself feeling this without a tether to a seemingly stable platform of REALITY to support it, do not fear or worry. The time is coming soon when it will be much easier to LIFT OFF from the old and begin being and living the NEW with much greater ease and clarity.

Simply realign with your intention to fulfill your mission, to achieve your goals and to be and do all that is in your heart, from that great well of love that birthed and sustains you. Remember-all is well! At the deepest, corest level, all is truly well. Remember this as the shifts and changes and awareness surface to REVEAL the truth- Of who we are, of where we come from, and of what has REALLY been happening on the earth.

We are the ones we have been waiting for, and as we open the doors of our truest inner heart’s calling, and begin to set in motion the healing that will allow us to step into it fully, we will come to realize the perfection of the timing and divine order of the Grand Scheme of Things.

We do not say this without great COMPASSION for the many energies surfacing, clearing and recalibrating old patterns which are seeming to be at CAUSE to great suffering on the planet. Simply know that all is well on the deepest levels as the old energies ‘sort out’ in this Great House Cleaning that is underway. We do not mean to diminish the vastness of the impact of these energies on the people of earth. It is simply that a CYCLE IS COMPLETING. As this cycle completes, know that anything which is not in alignment with the truth of who you are, individually, collectively and at the soul level, is up for examination and review. This means that outworn relationships, modes of being, habits, old anxieties, fears and hatreds, and any energies unsupportive of your true inner calling are getting sorted out and transformed. This process may seem painful to the mind however, believe and know that it is a blessing and a gift. You Who are eternal beings shall, from your lofty transcendent perspective, one day look back on all the challenges and Give Thanks. For now, simply know that you are supported, you are loved, and you are called into the Great Alignment which is underway, revealing your unity in your diversity, and the great cosmic plan which is unfolding.

All is well!
The Star Elders
