The Wolves and Their Message

We come with the message that the New Time is beginning. While it has existed for some time in the invisible world, it is beginning to take place on your planet. The particles of matter are changing as they become more receptive to higher thought and spiritual impetus.

Think of the particles of anything at all. The particles of matter vibrate with sound, light, and density. When the energies are higher, they move with the waves of light, peace, and other positive frequencies.

At the moment, they are unsettled, which explains some of the confusion on your planet. You may experience an intermingling of frequencies—both high and low—causing your personal energy to soar and fall. At these times, it is helpful to think of the world, which is written into each of you as a blueprint or diagram of the most beautiful life that you can imagine.

The higher imaginings are not there for everyone. You must have a true heart, courage, and the desire to follow your inner self. It is only through the inner self that you can perceive this network of changes that involves the earth itself, inner senses such as telepathy and clairvoyance. Through these higher skills, you will find the bridge between the old and the new.

In the old, there are parts of you that know the song and the vision of this time. In the new, there are parts that must discover aspects of the unknown so that all “real” parts of you are woven together into a new whole.

If you wonder what we speak of, look at the stars, hear the rhythm of time, and imagine beautiful places that you love. Think of moments of joy and strength. Think of moments when it seemed the world opened to you. (There are cosmic waves that will meet these memories—and lift you into a new point of being.)

How do we move across the bridge into higher vibrations?

As you always have but with focus on higher emotions and thoughts, by asking for experiences that reveal your power and strength. We do not mean challenges; we mean opportunities of expressing inner talents and abilities. When you do this, there is a higher wave, which will lift you above your struggles and old perceptions.

You can find the bridge through nature, by listening to the birds or wind, or by asking the earth to help. Answers also come through meditation. You can meditate on what your inner self wants, but you will have to visualize or take a step. How can you know if it’s working, otherwise?

You can watch the stars at night. In the place of loneliness, ask for the presence of the universe. Feel it connect with you and feel the earth take your heaviness –and replace it with comfort and love.

You can also see yourself as we do. We, the wolves, see the seekers as powerful, gifted beings of light who are only beginning to remember their true presence. You are far more powerful than you think, and you transcend this world when you remember who you truly are.

You may wonder why it takes time, why you become tired, or how long you have to wait. For everyone, there is a slightly, different answer. Part of the answer is knowing there are parts of your nature that you still have to overcome. The other part of knowing is finding balance for you.

What is the best way to move into balance?

Balance is different for every being and species on the earth. Sometimes, wolves sleep for days or hunt for days and nights. Sometimes, we gorge, and at other times, we fast.

Part of our rhythm comes from nature—and part from our own being. Very few people on the earth can sense their inner rhythm and create a life to go with it. How do you balance tiredness and activity? How do you eat and sleep? Who brings tiredness and who gives energy?

There are large waves of cosmic energy at this time that rewrite your energy field. They can bring periods of tiredness, excitement, or delight. When you are balanced, your energy field begins to stabilize.

When it stabilizes, you feel rested. Anxiety ceases, and you find a harmonious point of integration. The information, received earlier through higher consciousness, is integrated. The world speaks to you with harmony, and you “know” what to do as well as the right rhythm for you.

At this point, procrastination can become an example of waiting for a rhythm, taking time to dream, or simply waiting for the right point in time to lift you into a different frequency.

How do you find the right frequency?

The right frequency is found by believing in yourself and your dreams. It is found by having faith and repeating actions and thoughts that come from the true self. It comes from seeking the right direction and acting on it. It increases by moving in that direction and investing in it.

Over time, you find that this is a specific energy. By seeking and becoming the energy, you create the needed change. It’s very simple but requires practice.

Autumn Message from the Wolves

My spirit journeys frequently to the wolves, to their odyssey of sight and sound, and their secret messages that they share at particular times of the moon. This message is for you and others like you who wish to grow.

Our voices come on the wind, traveling around the planet through time and space. The great whales and dolphins capture the sound, repeating it through the water until it resonates in the heart of those who can hear.

Later, the sound travels through the branches of trees and throughout the density of the earth. It is an old and new song, which tells the stories of beautiful moments of the past and awakens future possibilities. You hear it in special moments when the world is still. Perhaps, the sun shines on you, the wind carries the smell of childhood, or the earth wraps you in her harmony.

It is also the song of the coming time when all will change. You feel the changes now through the undulating rhythm of the light, which alternately exhausts and energizes you. It is a wonderful, challenging time when everyone and every living being is asked to find the dreams in their heart and bring them into fruition. Perhaps, you already know it—or you do now.

At any time, you can draw energy from the earth. Think of the trees as your lungs, the water as your blood, fire as your spirit, and the earth as your outer structure.

The invisible world or the akasha holds secrets, but it is also the substance that you impress with your hopes and dreams. It responds to you and to us–it is a way of making changes through your spirit and mind. It is also a pool of endless energy when approached with a pure heart. Energy is the source of positive change, the flow of life force.

The earth energies are changing as well as the geography of the planet. The light moves to new points, old lines are recharging, and energy coalesces in new places. In the new energy, much is changing. (Species are changing and coming back; the geological plates are moving very slowly.)

Nature reflects our feelings and internal states.  We can see the reflection of group emotion in nature. Rain and thunder storms often cool emotion, and the wind pushes it away. Earthquakes allow pressure to escape. Frozen landscapes give time for reflection and rest by limiting activity. Few of us take time to truly interact with nature by listening to her song or even partaking of her fruits. 

Crossing the Bridge of Consciousness

There is a bridge between this world and the next. In the next world, the energy is lighter and more balanced with less pull of old negativity. You cross the bridge through intuition by listening to the true self and by hearing the language of your heart.

Intuition comes in a flash, connecting you to a higher world where everything behaves differently—and larger changes take place. It creates a bridge from this world to next by leading your feelings and thoughts into a higher point.

Over time, your feelings and thoughts change; they alter your beliefs. And the intuition comes more strongly, leading you into a new place. In the space of intuition, you can know many things such as what others thinking, the flow of the energy at large, and how the trees are moving—or how your destiny intertwines with the next world. (You already know these things It’s is simply about awakening to your knowledge.)

It is time for bravery and courage. It’s time to take a step into the new world—to grow and learn–and know we are sending energy to help you find your way.

Words from the Wolves About Manifestation

We come from the mountains, the deep woods, and the hidden, holy places to convey our message to you. Today, we talk about manifestation, which is your ability to create in the physical form.  It is the expression of the desires in your heart that were put there by the universe.

The desires are not random; they relate to the beauty of your being, the true sound of your voice, and your hidden gifts. Like many things, it is something that you must commit to.

We commit to seeing a better, happier life with harmony between humans and animals—and all of the natural world. We know you have incredible abilities to move the planet through your love and light. But this begins with expression of desire in your own physical world, which expands outwardly and touches all beings in your sphere.

Every desire is composed of a frequency. Abundance, health, success are all particular frequencies. Your personal frequency in these areas can differ slightly – as can your experiences -but it is basically the same for everyone.

If you hit the frequency, you begin to create it. You must repeat it again and again for the earth’s vibrations (and the people upon it) are relatively dense at this time. You must want the desire with all of your heart. It must be beneficial, creative, and expansive.

Any desire to manifest in a higher way is based on reaching a higher frequency, vibrating with it, and bringing it into form through repetition and focus. It is part of how you grow in the physical and spiritual world. Every time you overcome limitations and obstacles in life, your consciousness expands.

Your growth in consciousness is relayed to others who are working on the same desire. As more people reach it, the message is conveyed through intuition. This opens a pathway for creation in the physical world through higher vibrations.

Part of the difficulty lies in the fact that people have forgotten their abilities of manifestation. For those of you who are creating, you are acting as pioneer in the frontier of spirituality. Every small thing that you create brings the world closer to realization of this gift.

A Few Techniques

  1. You can begin with desire, want, or need. You should have a very strong feeling about your desire—and you must be willing to work for it.
  2. You must see and feel your desire as though it has already occurred. It is not “just” a visual. It is like stepping into a forest or a room and experiencing all that is there. Notice the details and memorize them. Stay open to changes, too.
  3. Use the power of nature to illuminate and activate your dreams and desires. Sit outside, meditate, and let nature become a part of your work. Nature corrects our minds and bodies by connecting our spirit to the earth.
  4. Raise your vibration however you can. It’s different for everyone, but stay with positive thoughts and words.
  5. Change your actions. Everyone, who is awakening, knows there are specific actions that bring alignment with the inner self. These actions result in joy and positive change.

NOTE: We, the wolves, hear many of you talking about the world. You wish for change. You can begin right away on this day through these simple techniques. If 100 people can create a change in their life, their collective energy can bring many positive changes in the physical world.

Message from the Wolves

 

From the forests, mountains, and rivers, we call to your soul. Listen to us and find your way. Listen to the trees, the clouds, and the sky. The earth speaks, too, and you can hear it through your feet.

We no longer ask you to commune with nature. For those of you who are awake, you hear her. You feel the tremble of the earth as she moves, and you hear the speaking of seas through their eternal motion.

At the present, you are between worlds – between the new and old worlds. You move into the new world when aligned with your true presence, the one to which we speak at this time. You step back into the old world when you argue, indulge in lower emotions, and forget who you are. (Yes, we know this is part of a very old process, but it is time to move beyond it.)

Everything we know is about energy, the life force that moves through the physical and the spiritual force that animates it. When you are aligned with the physical and spiritual worlds, there is much magic, and the magic is amplified by specific points of the earth as well as the presence of creatures, specifically wild ones. (Indigenous cultures have named these energies, giving clues and hints.)

When we walk through the world, the motion of trees tells us where to go. And clouds in the sky act as pointers for direction. The energy patterns of the earth appear to us as we run through the woods. The stars, clouds, and moon guide us at night.

Yes, it is very different in the human world. We hear your voices, and understand the complexity of your lives.  It’s helpful to think about what you ask for in life. For example, you rarely ask for connection with your inner self or reconnection with your power. With power, you can create what you want and know how to do it. (This is more important than having what you want – for it will often change as your perception expands.)

If you want to step into the new world to hear animals and plants and see the beauty of the world, we recommend asking for wiser outcomes such as hearing your inner voice, learning to use your gifts, and gaining greater awareness of the connection with the all. Consider for a moment if you truly learned to use your gift of manifestation by seeing life differently.

This is a greater power than asking for or receiving prosperity. Asking to open your heart to love and companionship may be more of gift than finding a perfect partner. (Of course, the outcome and gift are related.)

It’s also important to look at energy. Energy rightfully placed is true power. Notice how you become tired and who takes your energy. Notice how energy soars when you are happy or in the right place at the right time.

The “Awakening” or event is not exactly what you think. One by one, you cross into the zone of the spiritual or new world where you become very intuitive or powerful. Perhaps, you see, sense, or feel energies, messages, and intuitions that are not usually there.

If you consciously repeat this experiment, you build a bridge to the “other” world. When many individuals have these experiences, it builds a bridge for others to cross. In this way, many individuals awaken as a group at one time, but it occurs through the personal work of individuals.

Some of you cross the bridge of consciousness frequently, and you know when this happens for you are embraced by life and rewarded by a flow of events, which feels very different from daily consciousness. For others, it occurs in dreams or in nature. Yet, we know when you are here with us.

The “real” world is astonishingly beautiful, and we ask you to walk there with us in deep, awakened consciousness where the impossible is made possible. Everything on the earth works quite differently when you are in an altered state of consciousness.

You become quite magical, and the earth works with you. The earth becomes light, malleable, and supportive. There is only love.

We share our thoughts and methods below.

  1. It’s helpful to affirm your readiness for the new world. At this point, they overlap but not always. Choose the placement of your thoughts and feelings. Review your direction and create visuals that align with it. (It’s helpful to do this outdoors or to sense the placement of trees or sky.)
  2. Move out of negativity. See the world as it should be. In the beginning, there was one, long spring-like season. The seasons are shifting now, and the earth is changing. Try to see the beauty and refrain projecting the image of a dying world. (It’s not.)
  3. Rephrase your life. Use new words. See the good that has traveled within you for lifetimes. Focusing on this goodness opens your powers. Use your time to learn how to change the flow of life. (If you don’t like something, change it or see it differently.)
  4. Ask your heart what it wants. Ask your heart what brings happiness. Follow your happiness. (Happiness is not doing “nothing”. Activity flows out of happiness as do periods of profound rest with connection with the physical and spiritual worlds.)
  5. Visit with the earth.  Watch the motion of leaves, notice how the wind changes its smell, and look at the colors in the grass. A thousand stories lie undisturbed in the substance in the lawn.
  6. Flow into art. Create beautiful objects—paint, draw, write. Make a space for the expression of your heart and soul.
  7. Remember how it was in the Beginning when the earth sighed with pleasure when she felt your feet, and flowers bloomed as you walked by. In this time, we walked at your side, and we pray you remember your remarkable power.

Message from the Wolves

 

In this brief message, the wolves speak of the new world. I can only say that I learned the art of intuitive communication from them by following similar tips and words. Their words were true, and they never led me astray.

Our name comes from the root word, Lux—or Light. We are spreading throughout the world. We had no desire to become extinct or flourish; it is simply the state of the universe. As speakers of light and bringers of dreams, we have much to say.

The new world is here already, woven between layers of the old world and the substance you refer to as reality. It is like 3 landscapes interlaced. It comes in swirls like morning fog or gentle rain, which disappears in a few minutes. By afternoon, you barely recall the fog or rain.

The realities mingle and overlap like threads in a tapestry. You travel between the ordinary and the new world where life follows the flow of your thoughts. It may occur for a few seconds, minutes, or hours, but there is a subtle difference in feeling—a depth of perception.

You walk between worlds as you travel through your day. In moments of awareness, you perceive the motion into the new world where intuition/thoughts/emotions grow stronger, and the world briefly grows more beautiful and subtle—responding to your wishes and energy.

You will know when you are there for life will look slightly different. Maybe, you will perceive the big changes in the world. Perhaps, you will simply perceive beauty and sensation on an intense level.

There is no real time in this dimension/space. Everything responds to thoughts and emotions when creatures and humans open to this space. Time alters and lengthens, the hours of the day change, and the sun and moon move on a new course.

This reality is not available to everyone—only those who listen and act on the heart. It is not enough to see light or study metaphysics or act intuitively; the key to the next world is something completely different. It is for those who are ready to leave behind the heaviness of this world and wander into possibility.

A great dream, an adventure, is awaiting for you. The dream is new; it is lovely. Everything changes including the geography of the earth, the motion of the continents, and the flow of your mind. Who will go there? Those who truly know light and the rhythm of their soul. It is not available otherwise. It is only through the rhythm of joy and loneliness that you can possibly hear your soul.

 

We share our thoughts because we want to help:

  • You will have more energy if you draw it from the earth and stars. Ask the earth to nourish your body. Sit with the grass and trees. Notice the shapes. (All of the shapes of nature sustain you.) See yourself as sustained and nourished by nature each day.
  • Imagine that much of history and science is not true. At a higher frequency, the laws change.
  • Learn to pull back your energy from the world. (When you think a strong thought, you immediately feel everyone else who shares the thought. This explains much of world emotion.) Release negative, needy people. They are not needed in your life.
  • Use your power as a creator. Notice the good. Rewrite the negative into a positive form.
  • Focus on your dream of life with all of your heart. Imagine life as lighter, happier, and more fun. (We dream often, and we are dreaming you into our world.)
  • Notice when life feels lighter, brighter, or different. During these times, you touch the new reality. It is very useful to send light, see life differently, or observe beauty.
  • Find the position of the sun and moon. Watch their motion. Observe the changes in light and darkness in the physical world.
  • You learn to transform, create, and manifest by desiring this state more than anything. It is the natural order of creating change through the lens of the soul and the voice of the heart. It is why you are here. It is as simple as knowing that you have the power and deciding to use it.
  • You were born as creators, to create anything that brings balance, harmony, and joy. Use your gifts.

Earth Changes

news_newsky

 

As a child, I learned the patterns of clouds, seasons, the motion of the moon, and meaning of dew on the grass. Nature spoke in an immutable language of signs, which never changed—and spoke of the future in a thousand ways. But the earth is changing, and the signs no longer hold their former wealth of information.

The sun and moon rise in different locations. There are unseasonable patterns. Fall comes early, perennial plants bloom in fall rather than spring, and storms and fires fill the continent. Globally, we’re experiencing solar flares, rising oceans, and a fluctuating magnetic field. The planet is taking on the matrix of a new pattern.

Part of the new pattern is the return of the wolves to California. (When I first met them, their numbers were smaller. They said the resurgence of their population was associated with a positive change as well as the turning of the planet and stars.) The four-leggeds and the creatures of the ocean also send waves of songs to support us.

In alchemical writings, there are notes indicating the elementals (the creatures ruling the kingdoms of fire, air, water, and earth) respond to the moods and thoughts of awakening human beings. As we awaken our energy level soars, and the acceleration of consciousness amplifies any imbalance in the emotional, mental, or physical realm of humans. As our energy increases and expands, nature acts as a balancing force by releasing emotion through storms and flames.

With many people awakening at this particular time, the planet’s reaction is not surprising. Earth is likely reflecting the oscillation of emotions and thoughts of many people at one time. As we increase our consciousness and light, our feelings and emotions often become more intense.

I’m sharing my thoughts below, which are simply based on observation.

  1. Storms and rain can reflect our inner condition; they can also clear our inner and outer condition. (Think of the garden in mid-summer after a wonderful rain.) From my experience, it is possible to calm a storm or experience it in a less intense manner.
  2. Fire purifies and changes a landscape. With the many fires in the United States, it could be helpful to imagine the landscape after days of rain–or to see new life in the place of the flames. (Note: it’s more helpful to see and imagine rain than to wish for it.)
  3. Some of our weather may be manufactured by others. We could imagine gentle, balanced weather–or devices that don’t work.
  4. We hasten the seasons and the feeling of an accelerated year by sending children to school in early August. Advertisements such as Halloween in August make time seem to move more quickly. When we buy and prepare months ahead, we actually visualize cooler weather and other events such as Christmas and snow! It’s always a wonderful time to slow and become present.
  5. Mass beliefs such as associating harsh winter with global warming increase the likelihood of the experience. If many people believe this, we’ll certainly experience it. Obviously, it’s also possible to visualize and create a milder winter. On another topic, pollution obviously exists, and we have to see this truth. But we can also imagine a planet without pollution, including clear skies, clean water, and solutions for current problems.

If Nature is reflecting our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions, there is a possibility of creating a better reality. As far as I know, few people, with the exception of indigenous people, experiment with this. Please share your thoughts and insights.

Transformation

newsletter_tree4

Finding the True Self is the whole reason for awakening. Through the true self, we find a source of unlimited energy, direction, an open heart, and expansion. It’s not a magical genie although the force of spiritual light can feel very magical. It’s a process of learning who we really are by connecting to the Light.

For me, it began with a desire to awaken. There is a very real invisible world, which is only accessed by the soul. I wanted to know more about it, and my journey occurred through knowing wolves. It was not easy—finding truth is rarely easy. It’s a treasure found only through seeking.

In this post, I’m listing a few ideas for transformation. It’s important to adjust them to your own needs and journey.

1)      No one can save you. You must do it yourself through the help of the universe.  It’s important to learn about energy and how it works and feels for you. Alignment with the universe leads to transformation. Meditation brings the connection with the universe. (You can meditate on many things and manifest them, but it’s pretty meaningless without the connection. Expansion of light and awareness is the point of both meditation and manifestation.) Devotion to meditation is the fastest way of finding yourself. Find a coach or teacher if you need help.

2)      Know yourself. Learn how energy feels to you. When do you lose or gain energy? (Begin with locations, people, and actions.) Use your studies to notice if you feel inspired, energized, or excited.  Where are you blocked? Do you know how to send light and love to your difficulties or pain? Do you know how to send energy to expand your life? Do you practice sending light to yourself and others?

3)      What do you do with your energy? Do you speak well of others? How do you see them in your mind’s eye? Do you work or use your energy until you’re exhausted? Do you stop and collect energy on a regular basis? How do you project life? Everyone sees life by imagining events and outcomes and creating a virtual time line. By understanding this, you can alter a great deal of the movement of your life. We often project the next day before going to sleep. (An interesting question is: if the universe dreamed up my life tomorrow, how would it look?)

4)      Everything emanates energy. Stones, plants, people, places emanate an energetic pulse. By knowing what raises your energy, you can have more of it. Anything “raising energy” is generally associated with the true self. (It’s important to note you’re not taking the energy. You’re sharing a resonance. It’s synergy—your energy plus another field. You go into the inner self to find additional energy, not back to the physical source.)

5)      The journey involves staying aligned with the true self when the ego (negative inner dialog and resistance) comes into play. It’s good to think of it as energy going in the opposite direction. How can you turn it around, express it differently, and/or move through it?

6)      Like attracts like. Find people, books, objects, and practices with a higher frequency. Note the difference in their vibration and your own.  Emulate the vibration.  Discover how you can create a similar vibration of your own.

7)      Express willingness for the journey. It takes work and persistence to find your true self.

Part II: Lessons in the Garden of Life

                                                                                                                                  Oil by Karen Winters

 

For the record, I’m an avid gardener — but I’m sharing these tips because they apply to life on so many levels of consciousness. I began seriously gardening during the time that I discovered much about energetic laws from the wolves. I thought about their ideas while I worked in the garden and experimented with them rather wildly.

The most exciting part involved the outcome – their ideas truly worked. As time passed, I began to understand how they related to energy. As I work with plants in my garden, I recall the beauty of the lessons among memories of the infinite loveliness of the flowers.

Make the most of what you already have. Use the geographic form of the land. Hills lend themselves to tiers; flat ground is useful for raised beds. Shade beneath trees gives life to unusual plants that don’t grow in the sun. When planning, begin by seeing the value in what you already have. The same is true of the self.  Recognize your inherent gifts and put them to use. Make the best of unusual traits. Develop the potential of useful characteristics. Use creativity when making forms and plans with your inner landscape.

Listening to intuition creates superior shapes and forms to those formulated in the mind. It’s through intuition that we perceive the plants, the flow of the energy in the garden and the overall design. Nature is always changing. Plants move in the winter. There is a flow of energy – and by following it, life changes in a marvelous way. You can’t always see the energy but you can learn to feel and follow it.

The Earth can reveal your soul. When you are lost in beauty or the labors of work – sometimes you forgot your “self” (the egoic mind.)  Then you notice the shapes of flowers, the color of the sky, the smell of the earth or the neon brilliance of a dragon fly. The nature of this experience reflects the essence of your soul. Every time you notice this, you draw closer to who you really are.  The soul is elusive, and these small moments teach about its presence.

Desire works much the same in the garden as it does in life. When I wanted a plant too much and gave it too much attention, it rarely thrived. When I felt irritated by the lemon balm or chives that overgrew their borders, they only grew more. Certain states of being –such as over-attachment, worry or irritation – tend to create the opposite of a desire. It’s best to simply see the outcome clearly and let it go. Trust in the outcome. Don’t dig up your seeds by checking on them too often.

Learn about generosity. The garden gives abundantly. It usually bears so much that one must give much away for the plants to grow properly. Many plants and seeds were given to me by friends, and I think of my friends kindly each day when I see them. Give away excess, share the fruits of your labor and bless what you keep for yourself. Gratitude and generosity build friendships, as well as a better life.

Discover what you don’t like to do and why. I hated weeding in the beginning because I couldn’t quiet my mind or stay focused for hours on tiny weeds. I didn’t like adding amendments because I wasn’t sure of my skills. After I admitted my feelings to myself, I could master my emotions and go forward. Soon after this, I learned to create different visuals and make my work go quickly.

Before beginning your work, begin with a visual of success. Create an image of a specific amount of work easily accomplished within a given time frame. (Be realistic. Learn how long it takes to finish a task.) Wandering around and playing by moving from bed to bed isn’t an achievement – although it can be fun. Choose one section or portion of a task and intensely visualize its completion. Follow the visualization by feeling a state of happiness about its completion. Take time to rest under the trees or go for a walk when it’s completed. Rewarding the self encourages accomplishment and interest in intuitive work.

The weather comes and goes. Stay philosophical because there’s not a lot you can do about it. When I mulched the garden heavily for dry weather, it rained buckets. The next year I planned for a wet year and added sand – then guess what? It barely rained. I had to add compost, mulch and water constantly. You can’t control the rain or heat – you have to roll with it. Life’s the same the way. Sometimes you think that you have “it” down, and, then the life throws a punch. You do the best you can, change your tactics and keep going.

If you don’t love it or you don’t feel inspired –then choose something that leads toward your soul. When a task, project or work relates to the soul, then love leads you through the tasks, repetition and challenges. With soul work, you find people who love and support you. You find the strength to move through obstacles. Eventually you create a highly individual work with great beauty and meaning as a reflection of your true self.
