Are You Still Cranky? So?

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

Are you still cranky? Are you tired to death of these transitions?

Of course, this is a trying time for you. Your entire physical being is shifting. What was is no longer; and what will be is not yet visible.

For those of you who have been pregnant, please remember the exhaustion, the fear and the anticipation you felt days before your baby was born. As is true now, you knew your life and your body would never be the same. Of course, there are photos of media stars who have a child one day and are able to wear a slinky evening gown within a few days – that is not reality for most women. And of course, some women are cheerful, loving and excited throughout their pregnancy; but that is also not reality for most women.

Your body – whether you are male or female – is shifting in so many ways. As your body shifts, so are your emotions. We have noted on several occasions, as have other channels, that this transition is the largest ever on earth. How would such a transition be possible if you remained the same physically, emotionally and spiritually?

Some of you are moving into your place of fear. What will my body look like? What will my life be like? I feel so uncomfortable now, when will I return to my “normal” personality? You will never again be the person you were even six months ago. Everything is shifting. Is this terrible? No, merely expected.

Have you known women who pretend they did not give birth, who try to continue the life they had before giving birth. Such will be the case for those of you who are trying to function as if nothing is different. It is. Not in a terrible way, just a different way.

Again, let us return to the analogy of birth and the ongoing growth of that child. Do you not expect to provide one set of parenting skills for your infant and yet another as your child develops? So it is now.

Many of you are feeling the pre-birth jitters. What if I do not like the new me? What is I lose my friends? What if I no longer feel like partying until dawn?

Once you have birthed the new you, you will have different concerns – all of which will evolve, as will your understanding and acceptance of the new you. The difference between birthing a child and birthing yourself in this New Age is that you have no road maps, no one to tell you what is “normal.” Those of you undergoing this shift at this time are the scout masters and wagon train leaders. No one has gone before you.

What if you decide to stop the process, to “abort” your personal New Age creation? You have that right and that freedom. You can stop at any time and have always had the freedom to do so. You have already fulfilled the largest part of your role on earth at this time by helping bring the New Age to earth. That piece is complete. Now it is up to you how enmeshed you wish to be in the New Age.

You have the complete freedom to stop your New Age transition, slow it down or even speed it up. Now that the New Age has arrived, it is entirely up to you how you will shift, adapt and adjust to it.

No one will be angry at you for halting or slowing your process, anymore than descendents of pioneers are angry at their forebears for settling in Nebraska rather than continuing to California.

Of course, this is an unpleasant time for you. Some days you feel light and giggly – you are introducing a new life to earth. Some days you feel tired and angry – you are introducing a new life to earth. And on still other days, you are afraid of the shifts and changes within your being and the world at large – you are observing the birthing of a New Age.

Allow yourself to stop the process, slow the process or speed it up.

If you feel exhausted and yes, cranky, maybe you wish to rest for a bit before you move forward with the exuberance you feel you need to display to prove that you are a true New Age scout master or wagon train leader.

There are no rules. Allow yourself to rest or to move at a frantic pace. It is your life and your transition. Claim it. Accept it. And yes, glory in it just as you glory in the birth of a child.

This birth is of you and is of gigantic proportions – yet you have no guidebooks or maps. Think how terrified you would be if you were pregnant and did not understand what that meant. Such is the case now. Allow yourself the freedom to be. More importantly, allow yourself to know that you are birthing a new you – without guidebooks, “old wives tales” or even an understanding of what that birthing will mean.

You expect the new you to be a phenomenal being…and so you will be. But you are not certain such is true; anymore than the first scout master knew what was around the bend. Allow yourself to be exhausted, afraid, excited and angry all at the same time – just as is true for anyone who is pregnant. Most of all, allow yourself to move at your pace and in your joy.

This transition is not terrible or fearful, it is about moving into joy and pleasure. So when you feel overwhelmed, in whatever fashion, by your transition – stop, rest, regroup or do whatever you need to do to return to pleasure. That is your only role as a scout master and wagon train leader. Stop, rest, play and laugh and you will find your rainbow around the bend. So be it. Amen.

This is a Joyous and Celebratory Time!

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

Today is one of those extreme energy days – perhaps you are feeling agitated. Such agitated feelings are merely a by-product of what is happening to you energetically.

Let us move forward a few days so that you can feel confident that today’s discomfort will result in feelings that are more appropriate to the joy of the New Age. The next few days as a springboard into the New Age. You have had other days in which you may have had similar feelings, but with different results.

Most of your prior energy shifts have altered your inner being. Today and the next few days are about moving those inner feelings into your outer world. How will this surge impact your relationships and your world?

For those just initiating their movement into the New Age, or refusing to do so, nothing much will change. But for those of you “on the path” or scout masters and wagon train leaders, you will note a different feel to your life.

Those of you who have not yet learned to love yourself as you do others and vis versa, will note an extreme shift.

We will describe that shift briefly and then allow, a better yet, urge you to rest as much as possible. You will not “fall apart” if you do not rest in the next few days, but you will be emotionally and physically exhausted.

This shift from inner to outer will be dramatic in numerous ways. Some politicians will seem to change direction “mid-stream.” Others will not change at all. Some will seem to soften, others may become more set in their ways.

The same is true for those of you reading this. Most of you will find beauty in others, those same people who made you angry just a few days ago. You will understand their point of view, even if you do not necessarily agree with it.

Perhaps you will better understand this thought if you remember how just a few weeks ago, many of you started uniting the light and joyous parts of your being with those parts of you that felt heavy and not so light. You accepted yourself with all of your “warts.”

For those of you worried that you have not yet accepted all of your being, there is no need to do so. You have incorporated enough of your totality to be at this place now. It is interesting how many of you insist on an A+ in your energy work, when a B- or even C- is totally acceptable.

Perhaps there are a few areas you could review or merge into your being, but not enough for you to halt your process. You are not looking for perfection. You merely wish to move forward with all the joy you can muster.

Have you ever taken a class in which you received an A and yet knew that you had not learned every aspect there was to learn about that subject? Did you reject that A? Or did you accept it with pleasure knowing that if you wished to delve into that subject at a later date you could. So it is for you now.

The majority of you – and you will know who you are by what you are interested in – have completed your inner blending and are ready to apply those learnings to your outer life.

This is a time of joy. More and more you will interact with others who will surprise you with their love and joy. In turn, you will surprise yourself with your self-comfort level and your interest in and love for others – even those you found distasteful a short time ago.

These are indeed a dramatic few days. Not in terms of the Old Age fears of despair and doom, but of the New Age need – and it will be a need – to interact with others in love and joy.

What will happen if you interact with others in love and they, in turn, interact from the Old Age perspective of fear and pain? Nothing. For you will not have a great deal of interest in interacting with them, anymore than they will wish to interact with you.  Perhaps they will shift in the future. Or perhaps not.

You will wish to experience joy in all it’s ramifications, and they will wish to experience pain. Neither is right nor wrong. Just two different places in personal development.

Do not be surprised if you feel giddy with excitement in the next few days. After all, this is what you have worked towards for a very long time. The New Age is here and you are an important part of it. Enjoy your new life. It is one of breathtaking possibilities – most notably, joy in all of its dimensions.

Allow yourself to see and feel the beauty in your being. And then allow yourself to sparkle in your interactions of love for others.  Mark this equinox as the time in which you learned enough about your New Age inner workings to apply those learnings to your world at large.

This is a celebratory time. Shout for joy for yourself and others. And then allow yourself to embrace others in a way you never thought possible. We are indeed all one. So be it. Amen.

A Breath of Sunshine

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Brenda’s Blog can now be shared via Facebook, Tweet and other programs. To activate, locate the blog on Life Tapestry and share.

Dear Ones,

Is life not feeling like a breath of sunshine? Are not all, if not most, of your concerns fading to nothingness or moving into a place of miracles?

For those who have not yet moved into this place, we want you to know what to expect in the near future. And we want to reaffirm that many others, including Brenda, are experiencing such feelings. That is not to say that those experiencing such feelings are better, faster or more intelligent than you, merely that they are scout masters whose role is to rapidly create a path for you to follow.

For those of you who feel a bit jealous that some are experiencing what you so want to experience, we have created this blog so that you are aware that there is indeed joy at the end of your rainbow and all rainbows.

Let us explain how this week’s transition came about for Brenda and you will better understand some of your current dilemmas. She has had several concerns tied to her home for the past two years that needed to be rectified. Those concerns reached a crescendo in the past two weeks with little hope of a rapid or positive fix. Yet within the last 24 hours, almost all have been rectified in a fashion she could not have envisioned a few weeks ago. The errors, so she thought, have turned into miracles.

That is not to say that she is a “Pollyanna” – a type of person so terribly irritating to most people. But rather, that she tapped into her higher self and the Universe without even being fully aware that she did so. Brenda has discovered that her New Age tool kit is operational…as is yours.

Let us direct our thoughts away from Brenda and look at the bigger picture – the picture in which you view your world, as do most others at the moment.

The media delights in pointing out dramas and chaos – of course, your world supports the media but that is an issue for another blog. You are inundated by speeches of rage and anger. The political and economic scene appears heavy and getting heavier. You, in turn, believe that you need to hunker down so that what few resources you have will be maintained when the world finally turns into the complete chaos the media is encouraging.

In truth, your attempts to hunker down, to save, to discourage freedom and growth in yourself and others is merely a repetition of the Old Age thinking that you are trying so desperately to eradicate from your being. You contend that our thoughts are well and good, but have little to do with your current reality. Such thoughts are only true for you if you have maintained an Old Age perception of your reality. BUT if you would allow yourself to follow your dreams, and thereby access your new tool kit, you would soon find that your current traumas are indeed merely a shortcut to your joy. Let us explain.

Old Age logic is that you move from A to B which equals C in a linear fashion. You maintain your grades in high school so that you can enter college; so that you can obtain a good paying job; so that you can get married; so that you can have children; so that they can achieve good grades in high school and on and on. A pattern of life that as worked well for your world for eons.

The New Age is much more about C+F=A. There is no linear pattern in the New Age. Examples would be those few miracle people you so admire because somehow they “beat the system.” Has it ever occurred to you that people such a Bill Gates of Microsoft and Oprah Winfrey did not beat the system, but rather are creating New Age road maps for you? Both Bill Gates and Oprah overcame seemingly overwhelming obstacles to become extremely wealthy in an age where college degrees were required and African-American women were not expected to become America’s daytime sweetheart. Both are scout masters of the New Age. And now the second wave of scout masters is awakening.

Many of you cannot fathom that you too could be the next Bill Gates – it is too overwhelming to contemplate – which is a function of your parents telling you not to get a “swollen head.” They instead encouraged you to follow the patterns established by your forebears so that you good lead a “good life.”

Of course, that good life meant a life very similar to that of your parents and grandparents.

This is the New Age. The Old Age good life no longer applies. Think new thoughts. Expect new relations and reactions and most important of all, expect joy.

Now will you or others become extremely wealthy by thinking differently than your parents? You will if that is what will give you joy – and you will do so by being a maverick as was Bill Gates. For the key of this New Age is joy – not pain and work as was true in the Old Age. It is all about joy.

Many of you are concerned that we addressed the issue of wealth. An often taboo subject that the Old Age maintained a box around with many descriptors indicating very wealthy people were never joyful – that wealth is as much if not more of a burden than is true for poverty. Of course, neither is a true statement in the New Age. Your joy is where you find it. Better yet, your joy in the New Age is where you create it.

Which returns us to the first part of this blog. Brenda had major concerns that she tried to solve consciously in an Old Age fashion. Subconsciously, she used her New Age tool kit to create solutions that can only be called miracles. Of course, today’s miracles will be the expected in the next few years. And as the miracle momentum is created, the miracles of the future cannot even be dreamed of yet today. But that is neither here nor there.

Just as is true for Brenda, you can create miracles consciously or subconsciously. That is your choice. But miracles are now part of your everyday being, your tool kit  in the sense that the first cell phone was a miracle and now it is an accepted and expected part of your world. So be it. Amen.

You Are Far More Courageous Than You Realize

Channeled for Life Tapestry by Brenda Hoffman

Dear Ones,

This week may be uncomfortable for many of you. You may feel as if you are at the starting gate and the gun has sounded; but you are only able to move through the gate with a great deal of effort. Winning the race is no longer your objective, just remaining awake and alert is.

We smile at your concerns. Please know that you have never experienced what you are currently experiencing, so you have no framework for appropriate behaviors or feelings. If you were about to give birth, would you not be allowed to display temper tantrums, emotional upheavals, exhaustion and many of the same feelings you are now experiencing?

You are giving birth to yourself. Just as was true for the birth of your baby, you are in the final stages of an extremely complex transition that has required every ounce of strength – both emotional and physical – that you have had in your past lives.

Unfortunately, there is no precedent for you to follow. You have never given birth to yourself in the physical form.

Prior to this incarnation, you expected to create your next life with the help of your spirit guides and similar entities in the spirit realms. Once on earth, you merely played the role you selected prior to birth and determined when it was time for you to return to the ethers for a “tune up.” Sometimes you were pleased with your efforts during your time on earth; and other times you were not. But for the most part, you accepted what happened and used those experiences to plan your next incarnation.

Never before have you allowed yourself to remove the veils that protect you from your memories in all of your lifetimes. In truth, you have not always even believed that there was a place such as the spirit world where you planned your next incarnation.

Some of you believed that you lived on earth or other environs only once. Others of you believed in reincarnation. And still others that you transitioned into an angel or were delivered to hell according to what occurred during your most recent lifetime. But in all of these beliefs, you did not allow yourself to access many or all of your reincarnations or the periods in-between reincarnations. You purposefully closed that part of your memory bank.

To do so, you forced yourself to negate certain physical, emotional and spiritual functions. And by so doing, incarnation after incarnation, you reduced your ability to access that information even when you tried. How could you possibly deny life between lives, if bits and pieces of past lives continuously seeped into your memory bank?

You created your belief patterns about afterlife and reincarnations for a variety of reasons. Most notably of which, you forced yourself to live, and thereby believe, in your physical bodies because your goal was to be fully incarnated physically.

You achieved that goal. But now you are so enmeshed in that goal that you have had to reconfigure your being to fully accept the reality of life on earth and other environs, as well as life between lives. Hence, the recent energy bursts. You are awakening to your true being – a glorious, sparkling being. But as is true for any earth pregnancy, to do so you have to shift your physical and emotional beings.

Those of you who have been pregnant, understand the dramatic shifts that seemed to occur daily throughout your pregnancy. There are those glorious days when all you can sense is the beauty of the moment and the darling baby growing within you. But there are the other days when you cannot wait to rid yourself of this cumbersome part of your body that seems to have no connection to you. You find yourself ranting about the silliest thing as you start crying in frustration trying to understand yourself. But earth pregnancy is such a common experience, that you accept and even joke about your discomfort, your body changes.

What you are currently experiencing during this energy shift is similar to the pregnancy we have just described – you are bloated with memories and feelings you do not understand. Everyone who moves from the Old Age to the New Age will undergo similar  physical shifts. The difference is – as scout masters and wagon train leaders – you are the first to do so.

Do not be afraid. You are birthing yourself – there will no miscarriages, stillbirths, or anything else you might be frightened about. You are merely exploring new territory that is going to become common. Your heroism in moving through this physical/emotional phase with little understanding and even less information. Your heroism will be acknowledged in the future, just as was true for the first explorers of the new world.

There is nothing wrong with you or your being. Allow yourself to move and shift at will – as you would if you were pregnant. And know from the depths of your being that your birth is extremely imminent. You have accepted the New Age. You have moved into the New Age spiritually. Now it is time for you to do the same physically and emotionally. And so you are in spurts – just as would be true if you were pregnant.

When will you give birth to yourself? As is true for all natural births, when the time is right. Some of you are in the birthing process now. Others will be in a few days and still others in a few months.

Those of you in the throes of birthing will know by the discomfort that appears to have arrived out of nowhere. You have been the beam of sunshine to others as they moved into their various phases of development. Today, or during your birthing process, you will feel like screaming at everyone – most notably the person or entity closest to you. Which is little different from those women who scream at the man who made them pregnant during the birthing process; and yet feel great love for that same man immediately after.

Allow yourself to scream and rant and rave. It will soon be over. And if you have not yet experienced such feelings, you will. But you will do so on a different level for you will have access to those scout masters and wagon train leaders who have experienced it already.

For those of you birthing this week or in the next few weeks. Hallelujah! A new you is about to be born. A you that will easily and effortlessly combine your new spiritual, physical and emotional beings. And yes, you will soon again be rays of sunshine. Allow yourself to fully experience your birth with all of its fears and joys, for you will share those thoughts with others in the near future.

We applaud you scout masters and wagon train leaders. You are far braver than even you realize…or at times, wish to be. Go in peace knowing that your current or soon-to-be feelings and experiences are as normal as giving birth…and just as joyous. So be it Amen.

Returning to Fear Helps No One

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

This is indeed a convoluted day. What is does not seem correct; and what is not seems as if it should be. Do not despair. Once again you are in a shift – a bit like “Alice in Wonderland” falling down the rabbit hole.

This week is a mirage.  It is designed to ground you and allow you to once again decide the correct path. For those of you experiencing discomfort, we add a thought that will not necessarily make you happy, but will help you understand.

Many of you reading “Brenda’s Blogs” are in a relatively calm state of being. You moved through your greatest fears months or even years ago. Indeed, you are the scout masters and wagon train leaders of this New Age movement.

Yet, so many people you love are experiencing pain and fear. The teacher that you are wishes to help your wagon train members easily move through the difficult pieces they are experiencing. You feel uncomfortable living the ‘good life’ as those around you seem to be falling apart.

Do you need to feel guilty? Not in the least. Those of you having an uncomfortable day or week – even though you have, on the whole, breezed through the multiple shifts in the last few months – have returned to your Old Age care-taking mode.

Of course, you do not wish to learn this on two levels:

  • In the past, you worked diligently, and alone we might add, to clear your major issues. Yet, today you feel as if you are at step one in the clearing process. You are stressed, weary and fearful. Does this pain ever end?
  • Secondly, you thought you cleared your caretaker needs months ago. Yet, you feel as if you are revisiting the issues you so carefully explored in the past.

You are correct on both levels. You no longer need to address caretaker issues. What kind of scout master would you be if you returned to your wagon train with comments like, “It is really scary out there. Would someone please hold my hand as I move through the next mountain pass?”

And what type of role model would you be if you believed you had the strength to move through issues without assistance, but others did not? Is that not similar to the thoughts of missionaries and social service personnel in past generations? The “I am strong, but you are weak so I need to take care of you” thought process that created the victim/power schism that you are moving away from.

Some of you are thinking that your latest trauma is impacting you as much as it is anyone else – that you are the center of the storm and not the observer. Perhaps you are, but that is only so because you have placed yourself in the center of the storm for a reason. Most likely, that reason has more to do with care taking than a need to revisit the pain and trauma you have already moved through.

Allow yourself to breathe. Take a deep breath. Remember how much you have already moved through. And then remember why you needed to move through those issues before others. You are a scout master. You are a wagon train leader.

Address your current issues of concern with your new skills.

Ask yourself why you needed to re-address fear. If your answer is that you have not yet moved through a particular issue, remember how many traumatic issues you have already moved through without assistance. You are strong and capable.

Again, you are strong and capable. But then, so is everyone else. No one needs a shoulder to cry on anymore. They require the image of you having moved through your traumatic issues – with resulting overall  joy and peace. It does others little good to see you falling apart. Nor does it do you any good to do so.

You have the skills, as you have displayed so brilliantly in the past, to move through these most recent and relatively simple tasks, we might add, without much thought or concern. Tap into the New Age you. Stop depending on your Old Age skills to move you through New Age issues. Most importantly, stop care taking others. They are as strong and capable as you.

How do you move through your current issues? How indeed? Open your tool box and find the correct tool for you. Unlike the Old Age, there is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution to each dilemma. We cannot tell you what to do. You already know – you have passed through the ‘eye of the storm.’ You are more skilled than we are in this arena.

Just as we cannot tell you how to move through this week’s trauma, you cannot tell someone else how to do so. Do you not remember how you poured through numerous resources including written materials, counselors, friends and support groups to find your way out of your pain a few years ago? Do you not remember how you grabbed a piece from this source; and this and that from another to create a healing that was truly your own?

Allow others that same healing freedom. No one can heal your loved one’s pain for them – anymore than you can make someone stop abusing drugs or alcohol.

At the same time, remember that your self-healing skills are much stronger than they were when you moved through your most deeply entrenched fears. In comparison, what you are experiencing today or this week is minimal. Allow yourself to know that. Then allow yourself to feel the joy you wish to feel; and allow others to find their own healing solutions.

You are not helping others by returning to or remaining in pain, you are merely postponing the inevitable joy of the New Age. Breathe in that joy. Open your new tool kit of healing resources and allow others to do the same. This is not the Age of pain and fear. This is the Age of joy. And as a scout master or wagon train leader, it is your role to explore and experience that joy fully.

It helps no one,  including yourself, to return to Old Age feelings. Your role in this New Age transition is to explore your new tool kit and to display your new skills in joy and pleasure. No more and no less. So be it. Amen.
