We are One

A Boy Erased

“Jared Eamons, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, must overcome the fallout after being outed as gay to his parents. His father and mother struggle to reconcile their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self. Movie trailer – https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=-B71eyB_Onw “

This blog is about my take on conversion therapy and how it could work if done with some humility and humanity. I am not really reviewing the movie, though I do recommend you see it if you are the least bit interested after watching the trailer. It makes a clear statement that conversion therapy does not work and it is criminal to subject minors to it. My task is not to judge others actions or choices. My task is to see with Love. To ask, what would love do now? What is the humane thing to do?

Since I do have personal experience being Trans* my opinion comes from that perspective, though I also can see it from other perspectives, it is just one of my practiced super powers. I teach Oneness and with that said you may have some idea what I am going to say here. Love is the answer, plain and simple. The issue is most of us don’t know what that looks like. I used to ask anyone I thought may have an answer (parents, grandparents, counselors, coaches, etc.) and frankly no one did. God was the only one who had the answer. Getting answers from God is not difficult, but you do need to know what you are hearing is from God and not ego (I don’t believe in the devil or evil for that matter). ACIM (A Course in Miracles) goes into detail on how to hear the voice for God/Love, so I recommend becoming a student. The course is not for the faint of heart, it takes at least a year to get through it and probably the rest of your life to process and fully understand it. It was the best decision of my life to make the choice to follow Jesus’s teachings as put forth in ACIM.

The Bible has its wisdom, but one must really search for it. The books have been butchered by ego over the years which have left the teachings greatly watered down and in some cases are simply misleading. So I don’t fault Christian’s for not really understanding Jesus. Conversion therapy probably makes sense to them. Homosexuality is not a path to polarization as is taught in all Spiritual teachings. I know of no religion that says it a good thing. At best they teach to accept it and judge not. Our sexuality is set at birth they say and I have no argument against that. I believe now that once a person is born male or female they are always that sex, no matter what surgery or hormones they take. I had to learn this first hand; they say experience is the best teacher <G>. Gender on the other hand is another topic which I will not get into now other than to say, it is not as fixed as we are lead to believe.

So how could conversion therapy work? In the beginning of the “camp” the exercises focus on self esteem and self worth. YES!! Absolutely important. Then they say being Gay is a behavioral choice and to this I disagree, however acting on who you are is a choice. Say for instance you are attracted to young girls… acting on this thought is a choice! Masturbation is a viable alternative to molesting or taking advantage of an other. So my teaching is Just say NO to your urges and find a non-harmful release (masturbation, exercise, cold shower, etc.) rather than trying to fit into a community, be it LGBT or other. Look not for the love you seek in others. Those who seek outside themselves go without. After this they detour into labeling and shaming the self and family rather than seeking the innocence and beauty of who the individual and their family is. The answer is to accept who you are and who others identity as. This is the way… Love. It is not up to anyone else to tell you who you are, only you know this. And if you don’t know this and you may not at a young age then it is up to you to figure it out. It took me 50yrs, so don’t be in a hurry. In the end Identity is not as fixed as we are lead to believe either. It changes every time your life does. You join the military… your identity changes, you leave one church to join another… your identity changes. You have children, etc.

I believe we are all bi-sexual! Don’t tell me you have never considered same sex intimacy! Even if it was a fear. Sex by the way is not a weapon! Though many use it for power. Sex has nothing to do with Love either. I can see this blog is getting long so I will wrap this up. My eBook Sex and Sexuality has a chapter on Sex as Communication, so read this for more on Love. We all simply desire to be loved and accepted as we are; to not be judged. What you give you receive. This sums it up. The more you respect others the more respect you receive! Love comes in different forms on earth, but in heaven we are all One and Love is all there is. So this is what we all secretly desire. To be home again! Though don’t expect to find this here on psycho planet. (read Gary Renard’s books on ACIM to learn more about this)

Temet Nosce

Mother came to me last night in a dream and reminded me the importance of Love. My purpose here is to teach/learn that love is all there is and being separate from this love is just not possible. We might as well try to ignore the air we breath. Being without love is like being without air. The body will die without air to breath. Just like air can be infused into water if we adjust to its frequency it sustains us. Gills are used for this purpose to breath under water and you can be a gill for love in this world. I am. I am matching my frequency to love and converting this to a form which is natural for you. Accept my love. Know that we are One. Feel the love which you are… “to thy own self be true”… “Temet Nosce” (Know Thyself).

If you have not read the book, “Sex and Sexuality” then I offer it to you now. This book further explains what I have just explained above. The book uses my own life to illustrate this journey of love. It is a free download from SequoiaBlessed.info. So instead of making this a long blog I will end right here and leave you with the option to read on!

Sex Chakra Explored

Sex is a complicated subject as well as a multi-dimensional one.  Gender is separate so put that out of your mind right now. Our entire life is multi-dimensional when you look at it from the perspective of Chakras.  With each of the seven Chakras being one dimension, for the sake of this blog we will only cover the second chakra for brevity.  I will also point out there are at least 12 Chakra levels/dimensions which extend from the Root of your being out to the farthest reaches of the Universe.  The actual root for us earthlings is our Sun extending to the planets, human beings, the solar system, the galaxy, and the Great Central Sun.  The chart below is a view of the metaphysical teachings of the 12 Chakra system.  The first seven are most commonly focused on because they directly involve the body.

 

Now consider the aspect of sex which we all know, the parts between your legs.  This is just one level or aspect of sex; Orange, Polarity Chakra.   This is the aspect of male/female polarity and in our society the most basic level of sex.

Each being has a system of Chakras which connect them to the whole.  The point of connection between us can occur at each level.  Sexual intercourse occurs at the level of the orange polarity Chakra.  This again is a basic level of sex which serves procreation of our species as well as the transfer of vital energies between partners.  It is a sacred act, unless it is not.  This means your intention determines the energy shared.  Yes, we are conscious beings and we have moved beyond the level of simple procreation.  If the intention is to have children then this will occur, however if the only intention is to share energy this is all that will occur, but it must be done on a conscious level; a level of mastery many on our planet are now achieving if they so choose.  Unconscious sex, the animal drive is all about procreation, thus the need for birth control.  When taken to a higher level of conscious intention and divine love exchange, medical intervention is no longer necessary.

The female shares mental and emotional energies while the male brings physical energy to the sharing.  The blend of energies depends on the individuals participating, so if both are female then one will share physical energy and the other will share mental/emotional energies.  One of the roles sex plays is it allows us to balance our energies.  Having an open and active Orange, Polarity Chakra is important in proper function of this sharing.  One of my favorite meditations for this is the singing bowls.

Things get out of balance when sex is forced, faked, or avoided.  This of course can happen with any of the Chakras, they become blocked or partially blocked.  Meditation is a good tool to keep the Chakras open as well as the other basics such as exercise, good nutrition, and good hygiene.  Loving conscious practice is also important in the healthy functioning at all levels.  The seven chakra series of singing bowls makes a great way to balance these energies.

One aspect of sex which needs sharing consists of the aspects of masculine and feminine.  Think of these as energies, not physical forms.  Masculine, the rod, is the energy of a man, such as strong, hard, angular, rough, aggressive, giving and active.   The rod is designed to give to the receptacle.  It is the energy of penetration and physicality.  Feminine, the receptacle, is the energy of a woman such as soft, curvy, voluptuous, receptive, attractive, subtle, gentle and serene. Often this energy is slow moving, emotional, and mental.   These are the energies which are shared during sex no matter whether the partners are opposite sex or same sex.  Every person has both in a balance depending on their physical sex.  Another way to think of this is a spectrum with feminine energy at one end and masculine at the other.  Each person falls somewhere in between.  The partner attracted will be opposite this balance and the balance is not fixed, so things can change over time; however they do tend to stay close to the same.

So now you have a primer to deepen your exploration of sex and its purpose.  The eBook, “Sex and Sexuality – One Woman’s Journey of Discovery” has a whole chapter dedicated to sexual purpose, Ch. 8 Sex as Communication.  Blessings on your Journey of Love♥

God’s Love

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! ♥♥♥

Here is the answer to the previous Blog on Ego Love. The following is an excerpt from Sex and Sexuality, “For clarity I will capitalize this type of Love, so if you see “love” think ego and if you see “Love” think Eternal Spirit.  The only true form of Love is that which some define as Agape or the Love of God.  The ego mind is attempting to steer you around this section so just ignore your impulse to stop and read on.  I promise this is an extremely important concept to master.  Metaphor is so illustrative so consider this.  You came to earth expecting a mansion and were instead given a shack!  This is the illusion we all have been sold by ego mind.  The ego is not who you are but is in fact a tool given us to experience this world.  It is not possible to be in this world without your ego, because this world is in fact your ego expressing.   It is time to let go of the belief that you are your ego (or your body) for it no longer serves you. 

Who are you if you are not your ego?  When the ego is stripped away all that remains is Universal Intelligence, Great Spirit, God, or the One Mind.  Other names for God are pure Love, Joy and Peace.  For our purposes here today we are only discussing Love although Joy and Peace are interchangeable with Love.  God is All There Is and how we experience this is what Love is all about.  God is Love, God is Joy, God is Peace, God is YOU and me and all that is!  You may have heard this explanation however I offer it here because it is so profound.  Each of us are points of experience for God or you can think of each life form as an aspect of God and if God is infinite, remember the poem at the beginning of this chapter, then we all are infinite.  Here is some prose that illustrates what Love is so that you can get an idea of what this entails. 

Love Is

Love is not exclusive, but Inclusive

Love is not painful, but the Highest JOY

Love is never lost, but exists always

Love is not changing, but constant

Love is not different, but the same at all levels

Love is not wrong, but the answer

Love is Universal!

Love exists regardless of what is happening in your life, in fact

Love exists regardless of your life

Love is something you can share, but cannot prevent another from experiencing,

only yourself

Love is the only thing you have more of when you give it away

Love is a feeling, an emotion, an experience, and so much more

Love is life itself

Love is a way of life

Love is an acceptance of all that comes your way

Love is an expression of WHO YOU ARE, who we all are

I AM THAT, I AM

So the next time you wish to experience Love consider what that means.  Love is unconditional and in order to experience this we must first give it away!  How can you give away something you do not have?  You cannot, but then Love is who you are so simply give you away.  This is done by being thoughtful and considerate of others, accepting others for who they present to you, and never criticizing anyone or anything.  You give of yourself by doing onto others as you would have done onto you.” (Sex and Sexuality

Ego Love

Continuing the series on Love, the following is an excerpt from Sex and Sexuality, “The ego is an aspect of our being that allows us to function in this world.  All that you see in this world is a function of ego and I do not speak of the personality version that Sigmund Freud introduced.  I speak as A Course in Miracles (ACIM) teaches that the ego is all that separates.  Whenever you experience something separate from yourself you are experiencing ego.  This explains how we can think of love as painful or something we can lose.  The world is full of “love stories” that teach ego based separation with all the pain and pleasure that comes with it.  In this ego based world hate is the opposite of love, however they both come from the same source.  They are opposite poles of one whole, the ego.  In order to experience ego separation we must have the opposite which serves the very important purpose of supplying contrast. 

Humans revel in the experience of contrast, love, hate, pain, pleasure, happiness, sadness, hot, cold, and all the aspects of time and space.  Turn on the television for 5 minutes and you will see the contrast I speak of.  All of the sitcom and soap opera programs serve up ego separation as juicy slices of comedy, drama, and action.   The ultimate act of separation is killing or death; the grand delusion of mankind!  The ego mind is a master of weaving this delusion into every facet of your life.  You are reminded of the “reality” of death a thousand times a day, especially if you are watching television.

The world is so barraged by death that it is a natural way of life here on earth.  It is the cycle of life, life is born and it dies.  We would not have it any other way!  Or would we?  What if in fact you discovered that you never do die?  What if you removed the veil of death completely and realized the truth of all existence as the poem by Prajnaparamita so eloquently states? 

We have established what ego love is all about, but to further define it consider the many experiences we associate with love such as happiness, sadness, emotional pain, deception, betrayal, loss, falling in love, love at first sight, and even making love.  These are all ego based so this means they are illusion.  I am not saying that the experience is not real because it is indeed real, just like the movies are real.  We can experience all these things in the movies and we do!  In fact the reason we are in this earth experience is to experience love and all the other experiences involved in this journey of discovery.  So if all the love and hate we are experiencing here on earth is an illusion what is the other version of love that exists?” (Sex and SexualityThe next blog will cover the answer.

Sex Acts and Partners

 The following is a section of chapter five in Sex and Sexuality.  Life begins in relationship with Mother and quickly you are thrust into a world of relationships.  Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and every other person in your life, including the doctor who brought you into the world have a relationship with you.  Even the people you pass on the street are a potential interaction and thus a relationship.  You don’t even have to know them for an interaction to occur.  So in reality you have some sort of relationship with everyone and everything on earth and beyond, although often a distant relationship.   Once the probabilities are considered you quickly realize that relationships are what life is all about. 

Take this investigation of relationships to the pinnacle, and it becomes clear that all relationships are with God.  How so?  Simply in the fact that God is All There Is!  Even you are God expressing, so you are always and all ways in a relationship with God.  How you experience this relationship is up to you by the actions you choose to take and the events you choose to participate in.  When you stop and think about this it could be the most profound understanding in your life.  I Am God, you are God, and we are all expressing God! 

The food you eat, the clothes you wear, and the homes you live in are all a part of this Divine Relationship.  The beauty of the whole system is humbling.  Just take a minute, sit back and appreciate every little thing in your life.  Each part of the whole feeds another part and thus the whole is sustained this is why it is called the cycle of life.

As human beings we have relationships with each other that take many forms and serve many functions.  Close personal relationships are often the most profound because they are so intimate.  Who we love and who we allow to love us is an integral aspect of the human life experience.  When we enter puberty our bodies begin to mature and hormones start surging through us. Relationships thus begin to take on a whole new aspect!  No longer are we mainly concerned with family and friends.  Romance becomes the most important relationship in life. 

How you interact with others is an expression of who you feel yourself to be.  Since every relationship is with God, this divine relationship can take on many different faces.  It is up to you to decide how you choose to express yourself, who you partner with, and who you have sex with. 

My intention here is to help you more fully appreciate your life and live it to the fullest.  For now just know that when you make love to your partner, God is connecting to God! 

Our bodies are a learning tool and we use them to communicate with others.  We see, touch, hear, taste and smell with our bodies all of which are forms of communication.  A hand shake, a hug and kiss on the cheek are messages of love with increasing levels of intimacy.  Touching is one of the most pervasive forms of communication we have in our society.  Who are you Loving today?

Gender Expression

The following quote is from the new eBook coming out next month. 

“A few words about the differences of gender role and gender expression, while they are similar in that they are a choice, they are different in that gender expression is about our outer appearance and gender role is the activities we are involved in.  So wearing make-up and female clothes is a female gender expression, while a female gender role would be cleaning house and babysitting.  I hesitate to include this here as our roles and expressions are getting to be so varied and free.  The old rules are breaking down, so we are seeing women in combat duty now while 20 years ago that was almost unheard of.  Men are cleaning house, washing dishes and babysitting now days too and this does not make them female.  The best way I can put it is that we are integrating now as a society and our roles and gender expressions are much more open.  While a man in a woman’s role or a woman in a man’s role may be questioned, or even ridiculed, more of society is accepting them now.  Gender expression is the area which has less latitude.  In a male dominated society men expressing as woman are questioned far sooner than a woman expressing as a man.  It is assumed that everyone wants to be male!  (Not to imply this is choice.)”

I am sure you have an opinion on this topic and I am curious to hear what you have to say.  Gender expression has slowly gotten more liberated over time.  Just like anything else it goes through cycles.  The world today is shifting from a male dominated society to one that is more balanced and Matriarchal.

If masculine energy is active, feminine energy is passive.  We have both for a reason and right now the balance is shifting!  As much as it seems that there is much to do, take time every day to simply do nothing.  Play relaxing music if you like, but just take a few minutes at least to just sit and listen to the silence.  Get in touch with your feminine energy, the passive side that is soft, easy going, caring, compassionate and smooth.  Let go of the masculine energy or active side.  There is no need to be strong, hard, angular or aggressive right now.  Just relax and feel the peace.  The world needs your Peace, your Passivity and your Silence. 

Gender expression is about what you show the world.  The desire to live an authentic life and feeling free to do so is everyone’s right!  Just because you appear to be man or woman does not make it so.  Just because you act one way or the other does not make it so either!  So how does one know if they are in the right body and gender expression?  They just do.  Gender is an inner feeling or knowing that most of us never question, if you are questioning it then I suggest you visit the website below and discover more.  The next blog will discuss gender role and preview the eBook Sex and Sexuality.  Ta ta till then,

Sex and Sexuality

Transition is changing from one form or state of being to another, and this process can happen instantly or it can take many years.  It is human nature to resist change so most often it is a slow process.  Each person has a fundamental energy signature that characterizes the individual’s personality or character.  Transition involves a change in energy vibration or energy signature. 

In my eBook Methods of Raising Our Energy I describe several techniques you can use to facilitate transition and make it smoother just as I do in this blog.  Actually the eBook came first and then I was inspired to begin this blog because this is in alignment with my mission statement and ministry goals. 

Toward that purpose I have been working on a new eBook that addresses the subject of Sex and Sexuality.  In this dual natured world we live in each aspect of life can be used to better your life or to ruin it!  Sex and Sexuality are foremost on this list.  The level of energy that is put into any activity determines the result that is attained.  By level of energy I mean your intention and purpose.  When sex activity is used for pleasure only it becomes all about the pleasure and what I can get out of it.  It becomes give me MORE! 

Such is any addiction and the root to so much suffering in the world.  The mind gets stuck on what can I get out of this, or what’s in it for me?  This is a very destructive mode to operate in and if your life is not going the way you would like, I would look at this very closely.  When the coin is flipped and you approach sex with an attitude of what do I have to offer?  Or How can I serve you?  Then the energy is flowing in the proper direction, through you.  You become the Light that heals and lifts up. 

Sexuality is basically the essence of this energy.  I equate sexuality with spirituality.  The energy signature I mentioned can be thought of as your sexuality.  It is what you have to offer the world.  Sex is only one method of expressing this energy.  Friendship, Love, compassion, caring, gratitude, grace, and many others are ways of expressing your sexuality. 

Gender identity and sexual orientation are aspects of your sexuality that I discuss in my new eBook.  Please keep an eye out for it.  I am releasing it in time for Christmas and the winter holidays.  If you are interested in my other eBooks, please visit this website, Unity in Gender Diversity.

May your days be filled with Joy and your nights peaceful.
