New Earth is not a place you go. We don’t get to New Earth by hopping on a train from platform 13 1/2. You don’t have to have a near-death experience to get there. You don’t have to do whatever it is they do in the Matrix.
Just like everything else in life, it is simply a shift in perception, a change in our lens. A vibration, a frequency, an individual and universal expansion.
See when we land on this planet, we forget everything, EVERYTHING.
Ok, so we are souls having a human physical experience. If you don’t believe that, stop right there, this won’t resonate.
Before coming into this world, we’re hanging out in the cosmos, on the sun, the moon, the universe, other planets, other galaxies. In a moment in time (though time doesn’t exist), a soul decides to return to Earth. Most of the humans on the planet have been here before and we keep coming back because it’s a rad place, especially now. So as a soul, we know all, we’re light, we’re fearless (as fear doesn’t exist), we’re unconditional love, we’re limitless and invincible.
The second we land on planet Earth, we forget it all. The first few years, we maintain a soul-like wonder and zest for life, but after age 3 or 4, we’re already being conditioned out of our truth. And it goes on like this until our old age:
So all this time, your soul is speaking, talking, singing. screaming to you below the surface, under all that external noise. Souls talk in emotions, feelings and sensations. Whenever your heart stirs or your gut says something, that’s your soul talking and we are called to either listen or ignore. In my generation and those before me, we ignore. The younger folks I talk to, mostly listen. My babe, all babes, listen and we get hear their soul loud and clear.
The thinking mind and humans speak in words, in labels, in the familiar, in the conditioning and programming that occurs through all the years of being alive. Most of our words, our actions, our hopes, our dreams are from autopilot. We repeat these words as our truth and it shapes our reality to look like the reality of the status quo. We repeat and live that ‘life is hard’, ‘I have to hustle and grind’, ‘I should do this’, ‘I should do that’, ‘the other is struggling, is suffering’.
Ninety-five to 99% of what we do, experience, how we act and roll through life is subconscious. If you notice when someone says, “My mama has cancer”, the automatic response is “I’m so sorry”. Baby gets hurt, “oh pobrecita”. First question you ask when you meet someone, “What do you do?” and then we create a whole persona around that based on our conditioning for whatever their answer may be. We say things in rote fashion instead of stopping to think about what we really want to say or what would be the most appropriate, mindful thing to respond.
Fortunately, we’re in a time of expansion of consciousness. That means that the approximately 5% of conscious action, speech, experience is expanding into greater numbers. We’re becoming more aware of the fact, the science behind our thoughts create our reality. Our words become our world. Our beliefs shape it all.
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.Outlaw
Every single day we have an opportunity to choose the words we wish to put into our world. Our inner world colors our outside one, so if you beat your self up, even as a joke, our cells hear that and follow. Everything that follows “I am” can make or break a moment, a day, a life.
And same for others, the way we see people is often how they’ll show up. If you tell the stories of someone who ‘always draws drama into her life’, then that is the story that you will see. If you say, ‘my cousin, she’ll never find the right man or woman’ she may never do so. That homeless man, ‘he’ll never be able to hold a real job’, he may not. As a collective, we’re also responsible for seeing people in their highest, most courageously authentic light as well.
The New Earth is a simply a shift from all that is false to true and from fear to love. The way to do that is through practice, affirmations, meditation, breath work, pure awareness, prayer, sleep, walking, connecting and consistently shifting and changing the stories that are told every single moment of our lives.
It isn’t easy, but it is simple. It isn’t instant, but worth the commitment. For those of us who have been seekers our entire lives, we can stop seeking and start being. All the books, blogs, videos, people we read and follow need be no longer. Let’s stop consuming and start creating. Let’s stop learning all about how to shift and start practicing step by step, moment by moment.
New Earth is on her way. Or maybe she’s already here for you. I can hear her laughing, playing, breathing, singing and calling us all over to share a meal at her home sweet home by the ocean waves.
