Summary of Brenda’s September 9, 2012 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman New inventions, entities, ideas and technologies will be introduced without long periods of adjustment, as has been true in the past. These new ideas and inventions are to create joy. They are not the work of a devil or similar fear-based thoughts.

The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: ”You’ve Cleared Your Fears – Move On”

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” BlogTalkRadio.com show presents different channeled material than “Brenda’s Blog” even though both might be about a similar topic.

Dear Ones,

Today we will discuss an issue dear to many – how to find joy while experiencing a life of discomfort or pain.

Your life on earth is much more about Christmas is tomorrow, than a raging flood will destroy your home.

Many of you are tired of waiting for Christmas or joy. Perhaps you feel as if you have not completed all that is expected; you are a slow learner or that others have achieved what you desire but are incapable of achieving.

Let us address your current discomfort – for whatever else happens on earth, that which happens to you is of the greatest importance to you.

The New Age has arrived. And you were instrumental in bringing the New Age to earth and therefore, the Universes.

Please remember that the New Age was a process. It did not happen overnight and for many it is as if it never happened. Rest assured – the New Age has arrived.

But how you fit into the spectrum, that is the expanding New Age on earth, is your unique story. Some of you are reaping the benefits of your new life of joy. Others remain fixated on the quicksand that appears to be your daily life. You are thrown a log to pull yourself out of the quicksand; only to find yourself slipping back with the latest piece of fear in your life or those near and dear to you.

When will joy become a larger part of your life than the fear and chaos that seems to permeate everything you touch?

We wish you to stop and process your feelings for a bit. Then we wish for you to take three very large and deep breaths. For if you feel as if your life is chaotic and painful despite so many indicators to the contrary, it is time for you to emotionally distance yourself from those entities and objects that give you pain or fear. It is your choice to remain in fear.

We are not chastising you. We are merely telling you that you no longer need to live in fear. You are free. Your prison bars are gone. Fly away from whatever gives you pain. Allow yourself the freedom you helped create.

Many of you are thinking that you have obligations that cannot be set aside now or maybe forever. Those obligations are prison bars you established in the Old Age. They continue because you need them.

Let us be more explicit. Some of you opted to continue in the Old Age a bit longer than others. That is perfectly acceptable and commendable. If you are one of those entities, you are comfortable in your Old Age life despite the obligations that are part of that life. But if you are fighting the restraints that tie you to a life of pain and anger, you are imprisoning yourself needlessly.

You would not be interested in this blog or any information that discusses the joy of the New Age if you were not part of the advance movement into the New Age. So for you to blame others, to rave about your chaos or to feel as if you are not adequate is of your own doing. You are not helpless.

Others moving into the New Age comfortably are not your care takers, nor are they models of martyrdom. They are merely moving in the direction of joy as provided by their inner voice.

You have decided to travel a different, more painful road and wonder why it is painful.

That is not to say that those on the joy path do not maintain some fears; but that fear and related emotions are in the background and joy in their foreground. Those joyful entities also need to make a living, gather and prepare food, find shelter and move in the direction that feels right for them.

Many of you expect a guardian angel or similar entity to direct you to your joy. There is no guardian angel or entity who will override your autonomy. You are the director and key actor in your life. Your guardian angels are merely bit players who move you this way and that at times, but will never tell you what you need to do.

You are New Age young adults and it is time for you to claim your joy, to move out of the nest. You are responsible for your life. Again, we are not chiding you, merely reminding you that you must claim your New Age life. For no one will give it to you.

Let us be even more direct. If this blog makes you angry, it is because you are afraid or unwilling to claim your New Age role. Nothing more nor less. If you truly wished to remain an actor in the Old Age, you would not have found this blog.

Why are we so adamant about your need to claim your life? There is no time to process and ponder. There is no time to worry and scheme. You are either in or out.

Moving into the New Age is a process. For you, that process is over. There are many more who are still contemplating their decision for a variety of reasons. The difference between you and those who continue to contemplate is that you are unhappy and they are merely curious or oblivious.

You would not have received the calling to move into the New Age if it were not time for you to do so. That calling is your anger and feelings of hopelessness in your current life.

Those who have or are moving into the New Age are comfortably finding new joys and perceptions in their lives.

Those who are comfortable in their Old Age life have no need to change. The only entities living in discomfort are those of you trying to remain in both the New and Old Ages. It can no longer be done.

If you were comfortable in the Old Age, you would accept your lot and chaos gracefully as part of life.

If you were comfortable in the New Age, you would accept and expect a life of joy with limited chaos and much fun and laughter.

To be uncomfortable in both the Old Age and New Age realms means you have selected neither and so you have done the impossible – selected both.

If you are uncomfortable with pain and chaos, you belong in the New Age.

Allow yourself to move through your fears of the New Age. Allow yourself to accept joy. Most of all, allow yourself to be you and you will easily and quickly move into the joy that is the New Age. So be it. Amen.

Pass the Joy

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Summary of Brenda’s August 19, 2012 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman Competition is no longer an important element between golden indigos, indigos or any other generation. In the next few days and months, you will test your personal New Age software through your heart center. (Brenda will channel this week’s show Wednesday, August 29)

The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: ”Love is Evolving From Drama to Comedy”

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” BlogTalkRadio.com show presents different channeled material than “Brenda’s Blog” even though both might be about a similar topic.

 

Dear Ones,

Many of you are starting to feel the prophesied sparkle of joy. A sparkle displayed in so many ways. Not necessarily winning the lottery, but perhaps meeting someone at the right time or finding just the right whatever. You comment on your “luck” not understanding that such right times, places and things are preliminary indicators of your future.

In turn, your role is shifting from one of hoping for the good things in life, as you understand them, to telling others of the wonderful things that have happened to you. You are a trailblazer. Even though you might yet discover some difficult trails through bogs, overall the beauty of the new land/New Age takes your breath away. And so it is that you must tell those who are interested of your results as you moved through your fears so they also will live in the beauty of the new world you all create.

Perhaps it appears as if one of your new roles is motivator…and so it is. For indeed, many are waiting to see if your journey, your process was worth the effort. Some of you reading these materials may be questioning the results of your efforts. Perhaps you continue to work at a job you dislike or are having difficulties with family or friends and so cannot state with any conviction that the route you selected to the New Age is as joyous as you would like it to be.

We have told you that you would move into the New Age gradually – not necessarily in terms of your spiritual or emotional understanding – but your physical activities including manifesting. For your spiritual and emotional beings are stronger than is true for your physical being. Moving into your physical skill set too rapidly might have “burned out” your physical circuits.

You are now starting to magnetize those pieces to you that create the life of joy you have long dreamed of but seemed incapable of creating.

Do you realize how many are waiting in the background for your reports, your displays of joy? Why would anyone wish to clear issues, change their life and research new resources if the results were not positive? You can most certainly fool some people with words of joy or claims to riches, but most are not willing to give up their uncomfortable, but secure (in their mind) life for the unknown if the unknown is a dream that can never be their reality.

As your reality shifts, it is your role to tell others that such is so. Some of you are noting the seemingly small but wonderful changes in your life. Others of you are not as observant or maintain that such activities and pieces of joy are mere blips in your screen of pain. We beg to differ. Tell others of your new-found joy. At the same time, realize that the more you note your joy, the more joy will be part of your life.

Telling others of your joyful experiences encourages them to move into their New Age role or to initiate their internal clearing process. Doing so also  reminds you of how far you have come. Perhaps most importantly, the more you acknowledge your joy, the more joy you will create for yourself.

We are speaking of the Law of Attraction, perception shifts, New Age joy or whatever you wish to label it. If you look for and acknowledge pain, that is what your world is. If you look for and acknowledge joy, that is your world.

Until now, earth joy has been painted in such limited colors that it seemed as if all joyful events were a miracle instead of an expectation. Now that you trailblazers/advance Lightworkers have moved through your pain to your new joy skill set, it is time for you to paint your life in broad joyful strokes.

Do not fear that you will be labeled a braggart or a liar when you report that your life is going well and getting better. You are a beacon. Beacons shine so others can find their way.

Perhaps you are shy and have no interest in talking about your new-found joy. That is wonderfully appropriate. But if a neighbor notes the beauty of the flowers in your garden, do not feel as if you are a braggart by stating something to the effect that despite a lack of rain this year your flowers seem happy and perhaps that is so because you are happy. A simple statement similar to our example does not make you odd, merely a gentle, happy soul who lives down the street.

Of course, some of you will write books, give presentations or have no difficulties telling others of the new-found – and stable – joy in your life. Do not feel as if you are selling a product that is not reality. For indeed, the joy you are experiencing is for yourself and others. ‘Pass the joy’ will become as common a phrase as ‘pass the bread’ is now at many dinner tables.

It does not matter what your role is in this wondrous transition. As trailblazers/advance Lightworkers you are committed to telling others of the joy in your life.

What should you do with those people who ignore, make fun of or ostracize you? Nothing. You know what you know. There is no need for you to stand on a soapbox and insist that others believe and act as you do. You are merely a beacon for those who wish to find the shore. Nothing more.

Perhaps after you have commented to your neighbor about your beautiful flowers, they leave in a huff. You have been the beacon and they have opted not to see or heed it. A lighthouse beacon does not reach down to grab those lost in the ocean. It merely stands proudly shining its glorious light for all who wish to navigate by it.

And so it is for you. You merely have to be you and tell others, who wish to know, why your life is more joyous everyday as you become more proficient in using your New Age joy skills.

As unique individuals, each of you has different joy skills, as well as methods of accessing joy. So it is not your role to tell others how to find their joy – such is Old Age care taking – just that it is possible. You are a beacon. Start shining your light and it will get brighter. In turn, your beacon will encourage others to light theirs.

This New Age transition is a wonderful and glorious plan that is proceeding at a more rapid rate than you anticipated before entering earth. And as the rate increases, so does the amount of joy you and others now on earth experience.

Shine your joy beacon to those who wish to see it. And as you do so, your beacon will shine more brightly than you can even now imagine. So be it. Amen.

No One Can Tell You Who You Are

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Summary of Brenda’s August 5, 2012 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman You are or soon will be sensing what people are feeling instead of what they are verbalizing. Your definition of love is also shifting to a more sophisticated model that will better allow you to move through veils and dimensions.

Title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: ”Happy Sparkling New Life to You!”

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” BlogTalkRadio.com show presents different channeled material than “Brenda’s Blog” even though both may seem to be about a similar topic.

Special Event: Brenda is the Tuesday, August 7 , 8 pm (Eastern) guest on Rick O’Shields’  and Jean Victoria Norloch’s “Everyday Connections -Changemakers” show for www.BlogTalkRadio.com

 

Dear Ones,

Many of you follow astrological predictions. Why is such information important? It is and it is not. As your earth and your being evolve, the astrological indicators of the Old Age have little bearing on what is occurring in your world.

At the same time, some of the astrological indicators hold true. The obvious question becomes, which indicators are right for your new being and which are not? Many of you are answering in unison – those indicators that feel correct – and so it is.

Have you ever read an astrological prediction in a newspaper and then read a somewhat different direction for the same day in another publication? Astrologers, like channelers and others who gather information beyond your current five common senses, are sifting their information through their data base. If that data base is limited, they will offer limited information. Let us explain a bit differently.

Everyone on earth at this time has filters that determine what they believe and who they believe they are. These filters affect the information they relay. For example, someone who is not interested in people, places or things would likely offer more limited information than someone who is the opposite. Those with limited information would not notice the nuances of an activity or action they had not experienced or studied. At the same time, someone more knowledgeable than you might provide information that does not seem correct to you as you might not understand their translation of events.

Such is neither right nor wrong, merely different perspectives of the same issue. Much like your politics. Those of the United States Democratic party are certain that the Republican party does not understand the world. The same is true of the opposite party. Given those extremes, would not a Democrat provide a different reading than a Republican? Neither is right nor wrong, just looking at the same issue – or for this example – the same astrological configuration from different perspectives.

Such is true of Old Age and New Age astrology – with a twist. Someone reading a chart with an Old Age philosophy might see doom and gloom in the current chaos. While someone with a New Age bent would see that same chaos as hopeful and joyful in the belief that structures need to fall before rebuilding can begin.

Does that last thought frighten you? If so, you are viewing the near future with an Old Age perspective. Such thoughts indicate you do not yet believe you are in control of your life. If you truly believed you create your world and life, you would know that the chaos will only touch those parts of your being you wish to study. Nothing more or less.

A great deal is happening astrologically, but such is necessary to create your new world. Think of the changes a woman undergoes to birth a child. With the number of physical and mental shifts required,  many women amaze themselves with their ability to withstand those changes and yet absolutely adore the result, their newborn. And so it is now. You are birthing a new world. And your physical, emotional and spiritual shifts will create something even more wondrous than a baby.

Again, how do you know which messages are correct for you? How do you know if you believe in the New Age – or more to the point for this example – that you are pregnant and producing a glorious newborn? Even though you have no historical perspective, you have an absolutely flawless compass – your inner-being.

Astrologers are only as accurate as their being, their knowledge-base. The same is true for channelers.

But you know what is right for you. You know if the information feels bright or makes you feel heavy and burdened. You are the decider of what information, beliefs and joy you wish to bring to your life. No one but you can define who you are. No one has more information about you than you.

Instead of thinking of astrologers, channelers, seers or anyone outside yourself as the controller of your being, listen to their information and use that which feels right and ignore that which does not.

But also know that the information that brings you joy may shift as you do. Information from a channeler may feel joyful today and boring tomorrow. That is how it should be. For indeed, as you shift so does the information your inner-being deems important for the next step in your transition.

One last note. If you are concerned about the chaos in your world, know that such is a necessary process. But chaos is not who you are. You are a wondrous creator who creates events and activities that best allow you to learn what you wish to learn. As you move into the New Age, you will create those events and activities on a conscious level. For now though, most remain subconscious creations.

Allow yourself to grow and mature. And as you do, so will your knowledge and skills. You truly are your own guru.  So be it. Amen.

Happy Sparkling New Life to You!

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Summary of Brenda’s July 29, 2012 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman Because your perceptions are changing and expanding, you may see or sense a green sky. Or you may feel different sensations when you are with others.

Title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: ”When Did You Begin to Fear Change?”

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” BlogTalkRadio.com show presents different channeled material than “Brenda’s Blog” even though both might seem to be about the same topic.

Special Event: Brenda will be the Tuesday, August 7 , 8 pm (Eastern) guest on Rick O’Shields’ “Everyday Connections” show for www.BlogTalkRadio.com

Dear Ones,

We wish to discuss some of your new fears. Even though you have evolved beyond many fears you once held dear, you remain concerned about your physical changes.

Perhaps you wish to keep your current physical appearance or hope that these shifts will create a being that your culture finds beautiful or handsome. We wish to remind you that your cultural view of attractiveness shifts with the decades. Less than one hundred years ago, wealthy people in the United States proudly displayed a certain weight to show that they had the resources to eat what and when they pleased. Thirty years ago, a deep tan was considered beautiful. Today, neither a ‘hefty’ body nor a deep tan are necessarily indicators of societal beauty.

Those of you of a certain weight may bemoan your size; or perhaps it is your skin tones. You are you for reasons you selected – including racial make-up and physical size. But your reasons for being who you are physically are shifting and that is your fear.

In our Internet radio show earlier this week, we indicated that you were similar to a cell evolving into a newborn – throughout these shifts you are adding dimensions, skills and new physical features. Such changes are altering your being beyond anything you conceived of just six months ago – much as is true for that cell that evolved into the newborn you years ago.

Your fear is that you will not like the new you. That the physical changes will so alter your totality that you will not recognize yourself, nor will anyone else. That is correct – you will not be recognizable to yourself or others. But not in the negative way you are imagining.

As you change physically, spiritually and emotionally, so are others. Lightworkers are going through this puberty or birth together.

The new you, that will soon make a physical appearance, is correct for your environment and role. Which is no different from your birth or entrance on earth. Perhaps you now have black hair and dark eyes or blonde hair and blue eyes. Not because one is a greater indicator of beauty – both are beautiful in your society – but to better fit with your family and community.

Even though your new physical being will meet your new needs, your physical being will not necessarily evolve to what is now considered beautiful – for beauty indicators shift as does  a society. Please remember when Black people were not considered beautiful. Yet today, “Black is beautiful” is a factual statement in your world. Many of your celebrities, models and role models perhaps have darker or different skin tones than you and yet rank (Who ranks them?) as some of the most beautiful people on earth. So it will be for you.

Your physical features are transforming into whatever you need to fulfill your New Age role.

Not everyone will note your new physical appearance. Think of a magic cloak. Those who have opted out of this New Age/new earth/ascension process, or whatever you wish to label this transition, will see you as they have always seen you. They will not sense the new you – you will just be Brenda or whoever to them – looking, feeling and being as always. Only those who are part of the New Age will see or sense the difference.

The new earth is not necessarily a new physical place, but instead a new sensual place.

You will tire of those who do not relish your new skills, senses and physical appearance. A bit like your Cinderella fairy tale. Those of the New Age/new earth will see your beauty beyond the cinders (fears) and tattered clothing (‘shoulds’) encouraging you to morph into the beautiful princess that Cinderella becomes. Those who remain solidly in the Old Age will only see or sense the Cinderella of fears and shoulds. And that is how they will relate to you.

You will, however, KNOW that you are a prince or princess and so you will have difficulties understanding why those once so close to you cannot see your new beauty, your new being.

Life on earth is much more fun as a prince or princess than a scullery maid. Why would others not wish to join you in the fun? And so you will fade from their lives for you will not understand their need to live in fear and to keep you in that place also.

You will sparkle and shine in the eyes and senses of those who have accepted the New Age/new earth/ascension. And you will seem dull and lifeless to those who have not. Not because you are dull and lifeless, overweight, underweight, too tall, too short, blue-colored, cream-colored or any other change – but because your vibration will be so different from theirs that they will not have any emotional way of interacting to you.

You will see and sense them, but the same will not be true in reverse. They will not allow themselves to move beyond the mundane and you will no longer be mundane. You will be a sparkler filled with joy and fun.

For those of you who remain frightened of the new physical you, know that you will be precious and beautiful to those also evolving. Those not evolving will not notice that much difference. You are you to them and always will be.

For those evolving, you are a sparkling prince or princess they can hardly wait to interact with. The old you will only be seen and sensed by those wishing to stay in the Old Age.

The new you is evolving at an amazing rate. Within a few days – yes, days – the sparkler you will begin to be noticed by others. Happy sparking and joyful new life to you! So be it. Amen.

Most of Your New Sensory Skills Have Yet to be Discovered

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Special Event – April 1, 2012:

  • Sunday, April 1 – Brenda is the “Sunday Circle” speaker/channeler. Her presentation is 11 am at A Class Act in Greenville, SC. Call Jan Posey at 864-233-3033 for details. 

Summary of Brenda’s March 26, 2012, 15-minute, free, channeled “Creation Energies” show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman: Even though nature has accepted the extremely important role of exchanging energy with you, you and earth are directing this transition.  

Title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog at http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: “Manifesting is no Longer Work”

 

Dear Ones,

Many of you are in awe of those who channel, heal, see or sense information that seems to elude you. Rather than being jealous, please give yourself accolades for helping create the New Age/new earth despite the difficulties.

Let us address your jealousy for not performing as you would like with the spiritual realms.

Perhaps your seeming inability to channel or use other senses is more about timing than deficiencies in your spiritual skills. And of course when you berate yourself for not sensing or doing more, you return to the Old Age.

What if your skills have not yet awakened within yourself or on earth? Can you imagine explaining the Internet to someone living in the early 1800’s?

Even though more and more of you Lightworkers will awaken skills such as channeling or sensing information not gathered by most 3D people, within a few years those skills will be out-dated.

Do not fret if you channel, heal or otherwise gather information not “normally” expected of 3D people. Just as you probably accessed your current spiritual skills in stages – as you allowed yourself to accept what was possible – such will occur with skills you wish to access that we cannot yet describe for you would not comprehend.

You are exactly where you need to be physically, emotionally and spiritually. You are a Lightworker whose light shines brightly in whatever avenue you access.

Will you channelers, healers and other sensing people of today complete your work as new skills are discovered? Not necessarily. Some of you will opt not to claim those new skills. Others of you Lightworkers will jump into the new skills and by-pass channeling and similar current access points. Still others of you will add new skills to your current sensory abilities.

None of those avenues is more spiritual than others – merely different. Do you berate a loved one who uses a telephone to connect with you, but not the Internet? And so it will be for your skills.

Some of you will move through various phases of connection with the Universes  because it is your role. Others will plant yourself solidly in the 3D/4D matrix as a guide. Such is fine and good. There are no rules – only the joy that radiates from your inner-being.

Jealousy of others is futile if such skills are not in your arena/role. You will know your skill arena by following your messages of joy.

Perhaps you wish to time travel, see the various layers of other individual entities or communicate with nature. You might do all and more. Or maybe not. It does not matter. No activity make you a more aware or spiritual person.

Maybe functioning as a loving neighbor is your role. Is a loving neighbor less important than channeling? Not at all. Please remember that pioneers could not have crossed the United States in wagon trains if supplies or wagons were not available. Each part of the pioneer movement was beautifully executed. And so it is now.

Follow your joy and you will discover those skills that are important for this transition. You are a Lightworker. Your role may shift or even  seem ordinary. Do not worry. This transition is not about becoming a Hollywood star, it is about introducing the greatest transition ever conceived to earth and thereby, the Universes.

Stop wishing for something others have – whether it be financial worth or sensory skills.

Those with sensory skills might be similar to your elementary school instructors – building blocks that allow you to expand your skills. Or maybe today’s sensory building blocks are necessary to help you become a peaceful and loving example to others.

Your inner-being knows your role and will direct you accordingly. This transition is a glorious and wondrous time in which each of you will be in the spotlight. You have a role to play, a thread in the tapestry of creation that only you can fulfill. Just as the earth of today could not successfully function if all were lawyers or doctors, the new earth needs plumbers, teachers, technicians, parents and sensory experts. All of which will shower the earth with joy and contentment. All of which are Lightworker leaders and wagon train masters.

Do not be jealous of others. They are the building blocks that allow you to move into your role – whether that be as a famous new earth author or a loving neighbor. So be it. Amen.

Political and Global Upheavals are All About You!

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Overview of July 24 “Creation Energies” http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com, 15-minute, channeled show: It is time to release the belief that life is linear – it is circular and never-ending. Falling off is not possible. This new energy allows us to create without special prayers or meditations.

Special Event: Monday August 1 at 11 pm Eastern Time (8 pm Pacific), Brenda will be a guest on the BBS Radio.com “Angels Are Near Us” show hosted by Linda F. Torres. Please feel free to tune in.

Dear Ones,

Many of you are watching in amazement as United States politicians fight for the right to spend the money of their citizens. Others remain horrified by the recent shooting spree in Norway. Others are excited about the political possibilities in the Far East and Africa. And still others are collecting their thoughts and lives after the latest natural disaster. 2011 is not a calm year.

Most of you reading these materials have concerns and issues, but not at the depth expected given the negativity and fear reported daily in the media. You have a subconscious – maybe even conscious – feeling that all is well. Despite indicators to the contrary – floods, volcanoes, political upheaval, financial crises – you feel that your life will not only continue, but will be better in the future than was true in the past. How are such feelings be possible?

Do you remember when you were clearing your emotional fears how joy did not seem possible? Both the earth and society are now at that place – but you no longer are. Your willingness to move through your personal pain, anger and fear has allowed both society and the earth to now do so.

When you were in your darkest place, would you have ever believed that you could survive a similar process in society and on earth at the same time? Yet, do you not now have glimmers of sunshine throughout your being?

Oh, some of you continue to be angry at politicians or other outer-directed power holders – but not to the extent you would have been even six months ago. You have evolved. And so will your society and the earth.

What makes today or even this week noteworthy? Do you remember when you were at your lowest ebb? Perhaps you contemplated suicide. Or maybe you did not even care enough to think of ending your life – you just existed. Your society is at that point and will be for the rest of this week. Your politicians just want to survive the day – they do not care what others are feeling or thinking.

A similar stance will also soon be noted in the church, the medical and corporate worlds and any other outer-directed institution. For the shifts your politicians are undergoing – whether in the United States or the Far East – will affect all aspects of your society. Is not much, if not all the dissension including murder, about the worth of humanity? Ah – now you are beginning to understand.

During your deepest days of fear, you reviewed your value to yourself and the world. “Why does anyone care if I am alive? Why do I care if I am alive?” Your politicians are answering that question globally – who is important and who is not.

Perhaps you feel that allowing your politicians to answer such questions is terrifying. Let us reassure you that just as you came out of that deep hole of despair into the joy of life, so will your society via the movements of your politicians. We are not telling you that a particular vote will occur this week or that new governments will be created. Rather, that the politicians will begin to shift their thinking from personal ideology and need to a global consciousness. Just as was true for you after you determined your value.

Throughout the world, the people are beginning to direct the focus of their governments, churches and corporations. You might feel as if little or nothing is shifting. But in truth a tsunami of love and inner-power is washing away the corrupt and personal agendas of those who believe they are in power. It is impossible for anyone, including you, to be in a personal prison if you do not wish to be there. Note the number of political leaders who supposedly hold your dreams captive. Which group has the larger number – those in power and control or those who put them there?

As politicians throughout the world start fearing that they will lose power unless they agree to the needs of the people, their power base, direction and inner thoughts will change.

Such change will not happen overnight – maybe not even within the next few weeks, but it has started in waves of discontent that will topple the structures of government, churches, the corporate world and any other institution designed to hold power for a few to the detriment of the majority.

Are we discussing a revolution? No. Rather an awakening of an individual’s worth. Those who value their being will no longer give their power and their life to someone who does not believe in love, joy, peace and harmony.

Let us explain. We have promised you love, peace, joy and harmony. Such feelings are beginning to bubble within you. That, in turn, has forced you to look at those institutions that do not display similar beliefs or patterns. How can you be part of an ideology of fear when you are moving into love? And so it is that you – the people – will change your government, your churches and the beliefs of society.

Of course, those few institutions that do not wish to move into the New Age/new earth will continue. They will be populated by those people who are not interested in the New Age/new earth. But such institutions will not affect you – you have different interests and directions.

An analogy might be that there are several majors areas of study at your University, but you are not concerned about how difficult the mechanical engineering final exams are because you are an English major. You might even study next to a mechanical engineering major – but her exam does not alter your life or add to your stress. You are in different fields (or dimensions) and thus have different directions.

Allow your outer-directed power holders and the earth to find their balance – their harmony. Just as you allowed yourself to do so. This transition is not all about you – yet, it is all about you! So be it. Amen

Societal Rules are Now Constrictive

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.Life Tapestry Creations.com

Overview of 7/11/11 “Creation Energies” 15 minute, channeled, radio show at http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com: Until you rid yourself of your societal beliefs, you are allowing a self-made dam or barrier to reduce or end your flow of energy. Going with the flow is a New Age expression that is not possible for you if you retain beliefs designed to meet the needs of others.

Dear Ones,

You do not need to negate who you are to move into and possibly through the New Age – you merely have to be more than you have been.

When you were born on earth in this lifetime, you possessed a sliver of the totality of you. There was much more of you floating about in what you call space or the spiritual world. Your being did not find the need to expend all your energy in the heavy and difficult earth environment – even though extremely beautiful. You have perhaps read that you use 10% of your brain – such is also an accurate description of the capabilities you have accessed with your sliver of totality.

The sliver of you that you have allowed on earth has shifted dramatically in the last few months. Once you accepted your beings in all of your lifetimes on earth and in the Universes, you became more than a sliver. You were a being that could access more information, as well as one that felt complete.

Please know that you have not incorporated all your beings – past, present and future – into your physical body for that is not possible. Such a being would contain too much energy to maintain a physical body on earth. Instead, you have welcomed all parts of your being into your heart so that you have access to more information and skills than in any previous Age.

Inviting your various beings into your heart has resulted in a multitude of skills and interests that better meet your needs than has been true for the societal rules that have plagued you for eons. Rather than the Old Age committee meetings you are familiar with, your various beings want the same or similar outcomes and are able to offer the skills necessary to help you move in the direction that is correct for inner-directed you.

In earlier Ages, there was little need to bring the skills and interests created by your past, present and future selves into your earth being – you needed limited skills to follow the masses. Even though some negated those patterns to follow their own messages, most stumbled along without a great deal of original thought or direction. A bit like lemmings following the lemming in front whether or not they want to move in that direction.

At birth, you were expected to go to school,  find a job or perform the role most correct for your gender at that particular time, get married, have children and start the game all over again. Some of you moved outside those societal box of givens – but not enough to warrant a complete or more complete being than the original sliver of you at birth. Why waste resources? Why bring the totality of your skills to earth if you only needed a small percentage to learn the lessons you had to learn?

Your being has shifted dramatically. You have worked diligently to reunite your various parts or slivers. You have tried this and that to create new ideas and goals – all the while tapping into the resources of your various beings. You think and act differently because you are more complete now than any previous life on earth.

Uniting all parts of your being was the initial phase of your New Age work. Now that you have completed that phase, we are moving you into phase two – removing those societal beliefs appropriate for the sliver of you, but most certainly not for the totality of you.

You have more skills and a larger knowledge base than you have ever had on earth – which means you no longer need or wish to be a lemming, a follower. You are discovering your true being and as you do so, the rules of society become more and more constrictive.

Until the recent energy shifts, societal rules were comforting. You knew what was expected of you and when. Some of you were rebels – especially in your youth. But even Old Age rebels were part of  society for their rebelliousness was not inner-directed, but instead merely fighting the outer-directed status quo. Such rebels gave the power brokers licence to create more rules and regulations.

Now that you have gathered your pieces into one totality, you are no longer particularly interested in doing what you are supposed to do to support an outer-directed society. You are not a rebel for you do not care if you offend someone or deviate. You are only you…or soon will be. It is not terrible to be you – that is your role in this lifetime. But by being you, you will no longer fit into the nice boxes created by society. That world you knew – at least for you – is over.

You are replacing societal roles with a broader spectrum of you. This broader, stronger spectrum of you will not deviate from its urge to move into love, joy and inner-directed power. You have become a salmon swimming upstream.

How will your radical new thoughts and directions shift society? How indeed? Will you all be moving in different directions, creating havoc? Quite the contrary. You will all be swimming to love and joy – perhaps in different streams – but for the first time in earth history, you will all be moving towards one inner-directed goal – joy.

Let that last thought process a bit before we close. Know that your new, and perhaps to you, odd thoughts and feelings are not inappropriate. They are wonderfully freeing – and moving you to the joy and love of the New Age. So be it. Amen.

You Will Likely Experience an AHA in the Next Few Days

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Overview of this week’s http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” radio show: We learned more about our New Age software – our ability to go within without losing connection or time in the physical world. We can explore fear, communications, other dimensions, etc by using one part of our totality. You will no longer be labeled a “daydreamer.”

Dear Ones,

Let us explore your new skills for just a bit before we turn to another piece that is important for you to know before the energy shift of July 1, 2011.

Yesterday during Brenda’s radio channel, we described a new skill that may be difficult for you to understand for until this recent energy shift, few on earth had gathered their various beings from this life, others lives on earth and other dimensions into one entity. To think about a project, to truly hear what others were communicating or to travel to other dimensions, you needed to seclude yourself so no one was aware you were “day tripping” or “daydreaming” or whatever label you wish. Your separated being needed to focus on the physical world because so little of it was available. Let us explain.

You have many aspects of your being. In the last few months, you focused on bringing those pieces together – forgiving the parts you were ashamed of, acknowledging parts you were afraid of and completing the spiritual work necessary to bring your totality into alignment with the earth forces. It was a project many of you did not completely understand – much like the alphabet seems silly when you are learning to read. By bringing all of your being into one totality, you have created the ability to go within without informing those around you that you are doing so.

Why is such a feat important? For some, it is not. For others, it is a gift of great value. Which is no different from downloading a new software package and valuing some pieces of that package and ignoring others. You may not be interested in many of the skills we  discuss with you in the next few months. But you will be thrilled with those that help you in your designated role.

Those of you thrilled with this “going within in a crowd” skill, know this is one of the key reasons we strongly suggested you bring your selves together into one totality. Also, you cannot move beyond the third dimension until you do so. Which is unimportant for those of you reading these materials because you are already capable of moving between dimensions. This reminder is for those who read these materials at a later date and have not yet allowed themselves to heal, to be one within their present earth physicality.

Some of you are thinking we are describing the split personality often portrayed in movies and television as a difficulty almost impossible to overcome. We laugh at this idea – look at the split personality media events as a prelude to your recent work. The movies and books that described the psychological difficulties of a split personality were merely nudges for you when you were ready to bring your pieces together. Just as triggers about past lives were introduced via various media before the 1800’s. For that matter, self-help books were largely introduced in the 1960’s. But we digress. Suffice it to know that you were split personalities, but you have worked diligently to bring your pieces together with the result that you can now explore inner issues in a public venue without anyone knowing that you are doing so.

The last piece we wish to discuss is that you will most likely experience some sort of shock or memory opening in the next few days. For some of you, it will be the last piece of connecting your being to the spiritual world. For others, it will be the introduction you have long wanted to know – your role in this New Age.

Will  you be struck with a bolt of lightning or need to seclude yourself to prepare for this knowledge? No – just do not be surprised when it happens. Remember that you can now go within without isolating yourself. Perhaps you will be watching a fireworks display in the United States or climbing a peak in the Andes and you will just know what role you wish to play.

Please note that we did not state that you will know what you have to do, but rather you will know what you wish to do. The pieces of your direction that have seemed jagged or not reachable will come into focus in a delightful AHA.

Does this mean that you should forsake or change your activities in the next few days? To the contrary – only by living your life as directed by your inner being will you receive your AHA. Perhaps your inner being will suggest you nap on your hammock and a dream will startle you with its clarity. Perhaps a friend will say something that creates a chain of thoughts that bring you to your AHA moment. Or perhaps an advertisement will give you the answer you have searched for. It does not matter how you receive the information. Just know that this July 1 event is designed to open your being to your role.

Some of you may not know immediately on July 1. Some may not allow the information to be available until a later date. That is fine. You will know if you follow your inner being in the next few days what your personal time frame is. But know that the energy burst on July 1 will allow you to know who you are, where you are going and why.

Most of you did not understand the reasoning for combining all of your being into one, even though you received channeled information from many sources to do so. So it is for July 1 or rather the energies of July 1. Perhaps you will not read this message until December or next July. When you do so, know that it is the time your inner being is directing you to your role.

Do not be frightened of the information you receive or how you receive it. Merely accept it as your right to know and your right to move into place when it is correct for you.

Any piece of the New Age puzzle we give you is for you to accept or deny – most importantly, for you to sift through your inner being at a time and place correct for you. This is the first lesson of all of your New Age lessons. Move at a pace and in the direction that feels light and bright and you will receive all the joy of the New Age. Move at a pace that feels heavy and gray and you have returned to the third dimension – maybe for just a moment, but you have returned to the heavy and fearful third dimension or Old Age.

It is time to fly to your joy – today, tomorrow or next year. Follow your inner being and you will know. Follow others and you will lose your ability to fly. So be it. Amen.

Eclipses, Solstices, Full Moons – Oh My!

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Overview of this week’s “Creation Energies” 15-minute, free, channeled radio show on blogtalkradio.com: We’re now able to “flit” between dimensions – which is no different from selecting an AM radio station instead of FM.

Dear Ones,

So much has happened to you in the last few hours that it is somewhat difficult for us to know where to begin. You are ripping and roaring through these transitions in a fashion far beyond anything we envisioned for you or with you.

Many of you are sensing, seeing or feeling sensations and entities you did not think possible a few weeks ago. Each of you reading these materials has shifted dramatically. But that shift happened in such a way that you have not necessarily noted the changes – similar to the temperature extremes many of you experience every year. Is it not true that a 40 degree Fahrenheit day in North Dakota in July is very cold? Yet, a 40 degree F day in North Dakota in January is a heat wave? Do you not acclimate every year to both heat and cold in gradual increments?

Which is what has happened to you in the last few days. You have more capabilities, more sensory perceptions and perhaps even somewhat different behavior patterns. But because those changes happened at a pace correct for you, you have not necessarily noticed that they occurred.

You were born into the third dimension of reality (Words such as the third dimension are not necessarily correct, but because they help you sift through the information we offer, we will continue to use them for a bit). Those of you reading these materials have since shifted into the fourth, fifth and sixth dimensions. But because you have so gradually, you are not aware of the shift.

This is not a race to determine who can stay in the sixth dimension the longest. But an explanation to help you understand your new skills and interests. Each dimension you move through will shift your perceptions, actions and thought processes. That which was once fun, may now seem tedious. That which was boring, might now seem exciting. We cannot tell you how the shifts have affected you – but you have changed.

To decide what dimensional level you are most comfortable at or on, you merely need to ask your inner being and you will know.

Even though you may be most comfortable in the sixth or the fourth dimension, you will hop around a bit so some hours you will be in the third dimension and others in the sixth dimension. There is nothing that stops you from moving from one dimension to another.

The easiest way of describing your dimension hopping skills is to transport you to Europe. Countries in Europe are clearly delineated by language and culture. Yet nothing technically separates the countries. Those of you who have visited or lived in Europe probably have a favorite country. So it is for you now. You can easily move between the dimensions – that is the gift the Universes have given you in the last few months – but you will find your favorite dimension, the one most correct for you.

Because the boundaries between the dimensions are fluid, you may start your day in the fourth dimension, jump to the sixth and then complete your day in the third. Have you grown or shifted if you do so? Most definitely.

Prior to the last few years of energy shifts, you allowed yourself glimpses of the sixth dimension, but believed that the fourth dimension was as far as you could travel in the heavy earth atmosphere. You did not allow yourself to dimension hop because you wished to fully experience the third dimension. You have completed that task. If you had allowed yourself to dimension jump, do you think you would have felt as much pain lifetime after lifetime? Remaining solidly in the third dimension was an ingenious game plan you helped create. That game is over.

Now you need to dimension jump to get access to different pieces of your being and to function in the New Age. To find your place in this new world/New Age, you need to discover your “home” dimension. Will you live in France or Italy – knowing that you can travel to the countries/dimensions you did not select at any time.

Your task this week is to discover your home dimension. Are you most comfortable in the fourth dimension? That is fine. You can visit the other dimensions when you wish, but your decisions, behaviors and thoughts will be fourth dimension based.

All we can tell you is that the third dimension is no longer your home base. You need to determine where you belong, what skills/languages are part of that home base and to start learning those skills/languages. But such skill/language development is for another blog.

Suffice it to know that you no longer live in the third dimension. You can visit the third dimension when you wish, but as you become more acclimated to your home base, you will have less interest in doing so. Such a visit will be like trying to solve a problem with an old, extremely large computer that requires punch cards in the correct sequence to solve that problem. Are  you not much more comfortable pulling out your laptop at a coffee shop and solving dilemmas as you sip a cup of coffee? And so it will be for you as you discover your dimensional home base.

We wish to add one last thought. It is possible – even probable – that today you will feel most comfortable in the fourth dimension, but within weeks, months or years, you will evolve to higher dimensions.

In this lifetime and this New Age all dimensions are available, but the likelihood of any of you moving beyond the sixth dimension does not have a high probability. But then, we never thought you would open yourselves to the sixth dimension.

You are indeed beautiful soaring eagles discovering your direction and your life. This is the Age you have waited for. So grasp a piece here and there knowing that your goal is not reaching the highest dimension, but finding your greatest joy. So be it. Amen.

Not Everyone Wants You to be Joyful

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Synopsis of  “Creation Energies,” my blogtalkradio.com, 15-minute, channeled radio show, for the week of June 13: This week you are receiving extra energy bursts to help you shift your fears to sunshine – the “Pollyanna” approach.

Dear Ones,

Let us touch upon a subject we have alluded to previously in preparation for the energy activities of the next few weeks. The New Age/new earth is about love and joy. Fear is no longer the key element in your New Age being. You are shifting and morphing into a being of sunshine. Not that fear will disappear, it will merely be as fleeting as joy was in the Old Age.

Not everyone will be pleased with your new sunny demeanor. Some of the people you care about most, including friends, relatives and co-workers, will not want you to be happy. For when you claim your happiness, they will feel isolated.

Some of you have lived with or known others who are chemically dependent. Have you noticed that when the chemically dependent person stops using, those closest to the chemically dependent person often encourage them to return to their chemicals?

The same type of dance is obvious in “dysfunctional” families, offices, governments and institutions. To retain the status of pain, it is necessary to be in pain. If everyone were joyous, what would happen to martyrs, co-dependent persons and those who love the entanglements of pain?

You created systems that perpetuate pain because you were studying pain in the Old Age. You have moved through your pain issues with accolades from the Universes. Your difficulty now is moving into joy with an equal fervor.

Pollyanna, of the early 1900’s Pollyanna book series, was as much of a role model for you, as is true for those figures in history you hold dear because they lived and loved from their heart. The New Age/new earth thoughts have seeped into your consciousness slowly for generations in preparation for this time.

Any joyful thinking or model has been a seed for this New Age/new earth transition. You no longer need such seeds for you are in the midst of the New Age/new earth transition.

But we digress. We wish for you to know that just as a personality like Pollyanna was considered an anomaly in the early 1900’s, so too will be the thoughts for some of the people around you. They will believe that you are not seeing or are ignoring fear and trauma.

How can you be joyful when they are not? You have had a role to play that met their needs for pain – whether you caused the pain or merely helped them “boo-hoo” their way through. Now that you are shifting, perhaps even playing the role of what you term, “tough love,” they are getting angry. They want their misery to continue. That is what life is all about – for them at least.

So some of your friends, relatives, co-workers and institutions will do everything possible to return you to fear and a life of pain. Who will support them if you will not?

What if all of you refused to watch media reports unless they were positive? You know the answer. The media do not care what it reports as long as it draws a certain audience. What would happen if you refused to vote for any candidate who did not feel hopeful and joyful about the future? And what would happen if you refused to listen to stories of woe that could be solved if the person in question merely changed perspectives?

Past eons have defined the glass as “half empty”. Future eons will define the glass as “half full”. But many still wish to cling to the glass half empty approach. In a sense, they opt for extra credit pain classes – which no longer exist.

Those who laugh at your positive and yes, glowing outlook on life are not interested in moving into joy yet. They may do so tomorrow, next year or in their next life. That is their choice. Your role and only role is to feel the joy that is starting to bubble up within you. Yes, you can create the life you want. In fact, this is the Age in which you must create the life you want. And you must do so despite the laughter of others.

In the past, the extremely wealthy or high academic achievers were treated with disdain. Because the masses wanted those outstanding people on the same fearful level they were. Even those given accolades for their seemingly impossible achievements, had to contend with the naysayers – those who felt the need to bring the featured person to their level. A bit like your vision of hell (which doesn’t exist by the way) in which the devil’s helpers are pulling those on earth into a pit of fire.

It is time to change that fire pit image into one in which the sun is shining and the angels are out in full force guiding you to your joy and peace. For indeed, that is how dramatic this transition is.

What are you to do about those who continue to return you to thoughts of fear? That is your choice. But as a novice joy seeker, it will be more difficult for you to accept joy if you surround yourself with those who scoff at the idea. Just as is true for those who no longer wish to use chemicals.

Perhaps it is time to seek the company of others who wish to move into joy. Perhaps not. That is your choice. But know that not everyone in your world will be pleased with your joyful demeanor. Nor will everyone wish to support you as you move further into the New Age. But then, the same was true for the earth explorers and those brave souls who created the implements you now use on a daily basis including automobiles, airplanes, and computers.

Listen to your inner voice. No one knows you better than you know yourself. If you are reading these materials, you are moving into joy. Allow that to be your focus. And allow yourself to distance yourself from those who wish you to continue your interest in fear.

It is time for joy – just as it was time for automobiles. You truly can live a life of joy with small, very small dabbles of fear. Ignore or distance yourself from those who laugh at you or say something to the contrary.

Your movement into personal joy is no different from the invention of the electric light bulb – it requires concentration, dedication and the belief that it is possible. None of which can be accomplished surrounded by people who wish you to live in fear. So be it. Amen.
