Well, now that I look back on it, Day One would appear to have been on core issues and Day Two was definitely on sacred partnership – with self, others, and the world.
In the morning, Linda delivered a message from the Divine Mother on intimacy. Surprisingly the Divine Mother spent some time talking about sexuality and acknowledged Suzi Maresca by name as a person who wants to begin exploring intimacy, including sexuality.
One of the remarkable things she said was that she forgave us all. Not because we needed forgiveness, she said, but because we think we need forgiveness and she therefore has just said it, which should take care of that. “I give you forgiveness,” she added, “so you will forgive yourselves.”
“Dear hearts, you are perfect,” she continued. “You have always been perfect. That is why I have insisted on this livestream – lovesteam – because I wanted [forgiveness and the end of judgment] communicated all over this planet.”
She said that we humans tend to take one of two positions: “I am spiritual and therefore I am celibate” and “I am human and therefore I am sexual.” She wanted us to take a middle position: The wayshower of joy in form, including intimacy, including sexuality.”
Do not ignore physical intimacy, she said, The beautiful blending of energies when you come together in physical union is exquisite. There are many forms of intimacy – friendship, family, and sacred partners – but all are essential to creating unity on Planet Earth.
The message was followed by one of the most eloquent and helpful guided meditations I think I’ve ever been in.
The afternoon was spent in small groups answering around ten questions on sacred partnership, down at Lake Tahoe, which is a beautiful setting for the work.
I’ve been in sacred partnership with editor Kathleen for a year now. All of what follows was folded into the Gathering itself and discussed publicly so you’re only hearing what the conference itself heard earlier today.
I have her permission to say that both of us have come from situations of severe domestic abuse – mine parental and hers spousal – and coming together has raised all our core issues. Consequently we’ve fled each other several times and hidden away and then come back together again.
We’ve both been guided by Archangel Michael, through readings, on how to emerge from the grip of our pasts. While away, each of us did our work. All the articles I’ve been writing on recovering from parental abuse have been my way of “doing my work.”
After persevering, both apart and together, we’ve now reached the point of wanting to leave the issues behind. Neither of us wants to lose the other and holding onto the issues has simply proven not worth it.
As Werner Erhard used to say, we can be right or we can be happy and we both definitely want to be happy.
Kathleen and I have been married three times before on Earth and dozens of times on other planets. The love I feel for her totally startles me and is consuming.
We acknowledge the help of our friends, particularly Karen, Graham, and Andrea, in finding our way through the wreckage left by the abuse we suffered.
Archangel Michael has told us that we agreed with the Divine Mother to demonstrate how the divine feminine and the divine masculine can come together, emerge from their vasanas and core issues, and work together for the good of the collective. I have to say that I find that a bit of a daunting task and have kicked against the thorns a wee (OK, a lot) but I’m up for it. I need constant challenge in my life to feel happy.
Frankly I don’t think that anyone other than a person totally dedicated to the service of the Divine Mother would be able to tolerate relating to me and Kathleen might say the same. We both know that our lives are going to be very public indeed and we’ve accepted that.
If we can stretch our finances, Kathleen and I plan to take a leisurely drive home probably down to San Pedro first and then up the coast to British Columbia. Right now we have $200 in our pockets so it’s going to be a “voyage of discovery.”
We’ll post details of our travels on the blog in the sticky post, “Itinerary: West Coast Express.” We’ll arrange there to have dinner with any lightworkers who wish to meet with us.
We haven’t absolutely/definitely decided on the plan. It all depends on having the money for it, as all plans in this 3D/4D world do.
The list of stops would be dynamic. We’d update it with every change in plans. If we don’t make your area this time around, after the Reval, we’ll have much more leisure to come visit (we hope!).
If you want us to stop in your city, send a note to “Contact Us” and suggest the name of a quiet restaurant to rendezvous at. We’ll post it to the “Itinerary: West Coast Express” the time and day we can be there (as soon as we know what it is) or answer you personally if we cannot make that stop.
Our purpose is not to talk, but to listen to you. Most lightworkers are somewhat isolated and don’t get heard. We intend to offer that hearing.
Many months ago, when we were planning to go to Europe, AAM said to the both of us that, when we listen, the Divine Mother will listen.
But more of that later – if it materializes.
Offers of a place to stay may significantly impact our ability to do this trip. Hotels are up in the $200 a night range these days and that’s completely beyond our means.
Contributions to the Hope Chest earmarked for us would also impact our plans. We happened to be down here for the conference and probably could not have planned the West Coast Express to visit lightworkers unless we were already here.
To repeat: If you can assist us with donations, that would be very much appreciated. This is an opportunity that won’t present itself again until after the Reval.
Then we’ll be travelling all over the place!
