Eliza: From Dark to Light
On my walk this morning, I was gently greeted by a dove which lingered atop a fence post before flitting away. They are very shy birds.
What does the “dove” represent?
“On earth, they are intimately aware of their environment and demonstrate a highly developed sense of presence. As creatures of both the earth and the air, doves serve as liaisons between intuitive thought and common reality. This ability to move between two worlds (sky and earth), bird totems are uniquely posed to funnel higher knowledge down to our human conscious awareness. They link intangible knowing (thought, dreams, intuition) with physical practicality (hearth, home, security). Doves represent the balance between thought (air) and matter (earth).
Bridging this link between the higher mind and the more practical level in which we live makes the dove a perfect guide for dream interpretation as well. Bird totems offer inspiration combined with a grounding element to make new ideas implementable.
The dove represents peace of the deepest kind. It soothes and quiets our worried or troubled thoughts, enabling us to find renewal in the silence of the mind. The dove’s singing is most prevalent when the veils between the physical and spiritual worlds are thought to be at their thinnest – first thing in the morning and last thing at night – again representing a link between two divergent domains.
Doves teach us that, regardless of external circumstances, peace is always a touch a way – within us – and always available. It is said that if a dove flies into your life, you are being asked to go within and release your emotional disharmony. The dove helps us to rid the trauma stored deep within our cellular memory. Doves carry the energy of promise. When inner conflicts are banished from our thoughts, words and feelings, goodness awaits.
The dove’s roles as spirit messenger, maternal symbol and liaison impart an inner peace that helps us to go about our lives calmly and with purpose.”
Of course, I see doves around here quite often, but most of the time they fly off well before I draw close. This one didn’t fly off immediately. I guess I am just becoming more aware and sensitive to the subtle messages carried forth by our animal messengers.
So, what other lessons can the dove teach us?
“The dove spirit animal in your life has many significant meanings. For example, it helps you to overcome the challenges we associate with periods of change.
If you are undergoing a transition in your life, the dove comes to help you deal with the accompanying anxiety.
The dove stands for quietness and peace. It represents the clarity and stillness you crave. When this animal totem comes into your life, you can be sure that you’ll enjoy a hassle-free existence.
Additionally, the dove presence in your life means that you have to aim higher. It encourages you to spread your wings and fly to your highest limits.”
Oh, I can hardly express the desire I have held within, yearning to feel more clarity, to have the courage to step out and to begin to express my inner feelings once more. So, here I am, even if my thoughts are a bit scattered and make no sense to anyone else right now.
What we are currently experiencing as a collective and as an individual is the stripping away of the “dirt”, the dross, the trauma suffered for thousands, perhaps millions of years of physical existence. As individuals, we are experiencing the ebb and flow of strong emotions, erratic thoughts, confusion, feelings of disassociation, and so on. It is a different experience for each one of us, as we are all unique.
The uniqueness of the Earth human is extraordinary. It is what gives us our individual strength of purpose, will, and determination to do what we feel we must, if we allow ourselves to listen to that still quiet voice within, the intuition. Many people are afraid to step out of bounds for fear they will lose their jobs, their children, their homes and possessions, their status in society.
Right now, I have little “status” in society. I own little, have no solid connection to family, live in a different part of the country from my old friends… am retired, hence not contributing to the economy. Western “culture” has not treated its elders very well.
I had never thought to be where I am now located for as long as I have. It has been an education in discovering what doesn’t resonate with me. Now, I am ready to discover what does. I have learned a lot about the lifecycles of certain species of birds, observing them on an almost daily basis. I have decided I don’t really enjoy a subtropical climate as it is too bland. Shockingly, I yearn for a cool enough morning to prompt me to wear a sweater or sweatshirt. Would I come back here, ever? Maybe… to visit, but not to live full-time. It is nice to wear sandals year-round.
I have been watching a lot of Lorie Ladd’s videos of late; you will have noticed me posting several. I go through cycles of bingeing on various videos, interspersed with writing my book. Lorie has a calming presence and is very tuned into the Galactic Federation of Light, probably more tuned in than I am… a being who claims to be a member of the GFL (that person is an officer in the Pleiadian Fleet, currently posted on the Isle of Medina, and involved in a special project). It has been a challenge for a formerly very connected Light Being to be stuffed into a physical body and to have my inner connections muffled. Oh, I still have conversations with high frequency individuals, but I usually either go to sleep or can’t follow the dialogue. My ability to channel has been for the time being more or less shut off. We are concentrating on being in the physical form right now, even if it feels a bit uncomfortable, constricting, and challenging…
After listening to Lorie, I realize that a piece I wrote and posted about the GFL is only part of the story of that amazing company of Light Beings who are assisting Earth and humanity as they go through this birthing process. This is a physical process and is, as a result, slower than a transition might take in a higher frequency. The body… and it’s all about the body now, requires “time” to adjust to the higher frequencies. In a rhythmic fashion, there is an influx of intense cosmic Light entering the body, flushing out the toxins, after which you will feel a contraction, as the body struggles to free itself of its energetic bonds keeping it anchored in low 3D density. Like a butterfly struggling to free itself of the pupae of the caterpillar, we wiggle, squirm, and sometimes hurt, in the process… just before we fly free.
I have been wiggling, squirming, and complaining for years, months… wanting freedom. I have had to learn the virtue of being patient, time and time, again. It has not been a pretty process to observe or to undergo. Ascension is not about rainbows and unicorns. Physical ascension of the body has its challenges, unique to each individual. I have had my personal struggles like that of anyone else along the way. Still, I am becoming very aware that it is a blessing to be here during a unique and unprecedented time to be alive and in a physical Earth vehicle. Thanks to all of you for serving as my teachers. I am honored beyond words.
The dark to light in the title this morning refers to the journey we are all undergoing in beginning to remember who we are, where “we” came from, and where we are going as a collective. Physical ascension is happening world-wide, even to those who are not aware of the phrase. People are waking up from a long-term amnesia, realizing that long-ago they gave up their power… now, they are taking it back. Self-determination, individual effort is being directed to service to others rather than self. Humans are naturally generous creatures; when divinely guided, they are physical angels.
Dark represents the lack of light, intelligence, wisdom, knowledge. The dark has striven to destroy records of past high cultures, human achievements, and bring everything down to its level… the basement. As the Light flows into the body through the crown chakra and pineal gland, it awakens the individual to heightened states of creativity. Hope arises. Faith is renewed. Courage is reawakened. Imagination takes flight.
I dither… not sure if this makes sense. If it does, great. If it doesn’t, let it go.
Sending my blessings and love to everyone, especially those who have been my greatest Teachers.
