Has It Started Yet?

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Creations. com

Dear Ones,

Has it started yet? Are you frazzled with various directions? Do you wonder when your life is going to slow down just a bit?

Aha. You are there. All of you reading these words have hoped for a direction, a clearing of the mists that have surrounded you for so long. The mists are rapidly floating away – much as the sun clears a foggy day.

Not all of you are yet willing to remove your fog clothing and breathe in the sunshine. That is fine. Just be aware that your world – and more importantly, your life is now fully bathed in sunshine.

Perhaps you question that statement given that you are surrounded by the problems and fears of others. Please step back for just a moment and note your inner reactions to the dilemmas of others. Are you not finding it more and more difficult to stay sad and involved with those not interested in changing their lives?

The new sun in your life is your realization that others are as strong and capable as you. Their dilemmas are their issues – not yours.

Good Samaritans were necessary throughout the Old Age. Do you not see how convenient it was to not only monitor your pain and fears, but to add the burdens of others so that you were totally emerged in pain? The often repeated expectation was,  “life is pain and then you die.” You have completed those Old Age lessons.

It is time for you to learn in joy. And so you are – even if your first baby steps into joy are not as dramatic as you would like.

Please take a moment to count those important moments of joy in your Old Age life. Now do the same with pain. We venture to guess that you can easily list the joy moments, but your pain moments are far too many to tabulate.

The reverse is now true. The best way to describe this transition from the Old Age to the New Age is that the Old Age was a cold, dark, damp day that never seemed to end. In contrast, the New Age is a sunny, bright, balmy day with nothing much to be concerned about – a lazy, lovely day of summer.

Many of you use a great deal of your money to escape cold and dreary winters for a sunny beach. While you might feel a bit sad for those “stuck” in the cold, dreary climates, you do not feel sorry enough to give your sunshine tickets to them. Why not? Perhaps they need a sunshine escape more than you do.  But is not the reality that you feel you have worked diligently to earn your sunshine ticket?

The same is becoming true for you for those who wish to continue in the pain of the Old Age. Those whose lives remain chaotic have access to the same sunshine ticket as you. All they have to do is turn around and note that the fog has lifted, the snow has melted and the warm sunshine surrounds them.

Everyone on earth has the freedom to create whatever adventures they wish.

Those of you reading this material, have elected the sunny beaches. Those whose lives continue in pain have elected to shut their windows and lock their doors to the warm sunshine.

We are not belittling those who remain in the heaviness of the Old Age. Rather, we are pointing out that you no longer need to be in that environment. You have moved  beyond that.

And because you have moved beyond that heaviness, you have many mixed feelings. You were taught to care for others. Teachings based on the understanding that you were stronger, wiser and better than others. That has never been the case. But such thoughts encouraged the life of pain expected in the Old Age.

Allow yourself to live on a sunny beach with the full knowledge that anyone and everyone can create the same life. They merely need to accept the sun – the New Age – and their role in it. You have all earned a summer life.

But we will forewarn you that you will find friends and relatives who refuse to live in the sunshine. “I am too busy rolling in pain.” “I have too many negative thoughts to explore sunlight.” “How can I punish others if I accept the sunlight, the New Age?”

You, on the other hand, are running into the sunlight – so you have little interest in begging or badgering others to join you. You may see their misery and wonder why they wish to continue. You are outside looking in – rather than continuing as an actor in their plays of pain and chaos.

You have left the pain and chaos acting company and find little interest in even discussing that area. For those of you reading this material who feel that your life remains chaotic, please review your feelings. Are you not feeling less intensity about issues that are not bright and sunny? And so it will continue until you are no longer interested in even hearing about the chaos of others.

Such beings have elected to remain in the Old Age. You have decided most emphatically to move into the New Age. Neither is right nor wrong – merely two opposite directions. Those who wish to remain in the Old Age for now will find you frivolous. And those of you who choose to move into the sunshine of the New Age will find those who do not heavy and unpleasant.

No more will you spend hours trying to point out the strengths of those who refuse to hear such information. You will merely say or do something that indicates they no longer need to suffer. In turn, they will be repulsed by your lack of charity.

Two different directions. Two different people who will not meet until the person enmeshed in the Old Age opts to turn towards the sun. A personal choice you can no longer impact – for you are reading the map so differently you can not see their road. So be it. Amen.

Puberty – Here We Go Again!

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

What a beautiful and confusing time. Perhaps the best way to describe how many of you are feeling is to return you to that age most of you would like to forget – 14 years of age. The age at which you were neither an adult nor a child. When your body was evolving in areas  you were not sure you were comfortable with. At the same time, you could not wait until those changes were complete. You probably acted extremely childish one moment and in the next, astounded your parents with a very adult-like thought. You were “betwixt and between.” So it is for you now.

Some moments you act very childish in terms of reverting to Old Age thoughts and actions. Other times, you amaze yourself with your clarity and knowingness of your inner power.

Such is expected. It was perfectly acceptable for your children to float between childhood and adulthood during puberty. The same is true for you now. The difference is that you expect too much from yourself. Because you are an adventurer – and all of you who wish to move into the New Age now are most certainly adventurers – you expected perfection the first moment you began to shift.

Such instant New Age rewards or skills are not possible within your physical being, anymore than was true when you were 14. Your personal shift will happen at the rate that is right  for your physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and social being.

You may now be laughing at yourself and well you should. We are providing you with the same information as did your parents during your shift from childhood to adulthood. You ached for push-up bras, “wheels,” make-up and freedom, even though your physical plant remained more child than adult.

Even though this particular weekend will again move you further along the adulthood spectrum, you will continue to revert to your comfort level of childhood or the Old Age more often than you would probably like.

You are not a slow learner. You are merely moving into the New Age at a pace that is correct for your physical plant. Do you not remember those friends of yours who pined for a larger chest at 13, only to rue the size of their chest at 35? Or the young men mortified at the shifts in their voices, only to become internationally noted speakers at a later age? So it will be for you.

You may grow into the New Age in spurts and dips and dabs…or you may do so overnight. Each of you is moving at a pace that is correct for you.

What about those proclaiming they have mastered all the skills of the New Age – that they are firmly in the New Age and are beckoning you to follow? Listen to your heart. Some are at that point – albeit not at the finished point they proclaim, anymore than an 18 year-old is fully an adult. But most are similar to those you interacted with in junior high and high school, they have grasped the nuances of being a “cool” teen-ager, but not necessarily the skills required of an adult.

There is no need to be jealous of anyone’s New Age skills, anymore than it was appropriate to be jealous of someone’s body development during puberty. Even though each developed at his or her pace, all of you reached adulthood with all the physical indicators by a similar age. So it is for you now.

Some of you will spurt ahead in one arena, but not another – only to discover in a few weeks or months that you did so for a reason. All of you reading this message elected to be scout masters and wagon train leaders. Some of you may acquire certain physical, emotional, social or spiritual attributes sooner than others. Not because you are more spiritual than other, but because those specific skills are needed by the groups who have agreed to follow you.

We wish to add one more thought. You are perhaps observing a great deal of negativity –  some  of which might be directed at you. Ignore it. Even though those negative words or actions might appear designed to hurt you, think back to puberty. Everyone was trying to find their place in their new world and body. Their fears encouraged many to make others feel less than they were, so those most frightened could feel better about themselves.

Just a small segment of your global population is in puberty at any one time. In contrast, all of those now on earth are impacted by these energy shifts. Puberty magnified by millions!

Some are just touching the tip of the puberty iceberg – they will be followers of many of you. Others, like you, are fully enmeshed in the puberty phase; some are even near the completion stage – you are the scout masters and wagon train leaders. And still others, are kicking and screaming refusing to even contemplate any aspects of puberty – this group is the most negative of all; and will either transition via earth death or take extremely baby steps into the New Age. This last group will be the followers of those who learned the trails from you.

Even though this New Age transition is difficult because no one on earth has yet moved through it, this transition is no more difficult than puberty – which many of you were sure you were not going to survive.

Remember what you told your children when they were between childhood and adulthood and apply those same concepts to yourself. You will move through this phase. You will be an adult. You will be a New Age scout master or wagon train leader. Allow yourself to observe your fears and anxieties so that when your followers begin to exhibit similar patterns you can reassure them – just as we are reassuring you.

All is well in your world. Throw a few tantrums. Attempt to access life skills beyond your current capabilities. Yell and scream at us, the sun, God or whomever. It does not matter. You will move through your New Age puberty with skill and finesse. Most of all, you will be spectacular scout masters and wagon train leaders. So be it. Amen.

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.

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.

Are You Afraid of Your Power?

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

Let us address an issue we have discussed previously – your fear of your powers and thereby, the New Age.

We have told you that the New Age is not about following or even caring about the dictates of others.

You have devoted this life and eons of previous lives to learning how to disregard your inner voice in favor of someone who seems to have or be what you want.  Granted, you had certain karmic issues you wished to complete in each lifetime. But even in that regard, you allowed and even encouraged others to control the direction of those lessons. Someone volunteered to be the bad guy, the bad boss, the bad mate, the bad politician or the bad parent so that you could complete your karmic lessons as a victim who may or may not have triumphed over those you felt were in control of your pain.

You were always in control of each and every life. You merely agreed to learn those lessons in pain. And others agreed to be part of your “passion play” – that was the over-all lesson of the Old Age – the past Age.

The New Age has arrived.

Fewer and fewer people are willing to play the “bad cop.” Oh you may find a few willing to give you a growl or two – but in essence, fewer people want to play that role and fewer still are looking for someone to do so. The pain game is over. You have moved through the Old Age gracefully and beautifully.

The New Age is about pleasure. So claim it. Do not worry about the poor soul who does not have all that you do. That soul is as strong and capable as are you. Victims are no more. And those people who opt to remain in the Old Age role of victim are finding it more and more difficult.

Maybe you are thinking that thousands are without work; millions live in poverty and countless others continue to be battered and bruised. Such is true – but those people are not fulfilling their inner direction or the earth’s new direction, they merely are trying to remain in the Old Age.

You are perhaps angry with this last thought. For indeed, you can see the starving children a few blocks from your home. You observe in your media as calamities strike  one geographical location after another. You see the tears of anger, pain and frustration. No one would opt for that life of pain if they did not have to.

Ah. Now you have reached the crux of your fear. “What if I follow my inner voice and discover that it is wrong?” Is it not easier to blame a boss, government official, parent or child than to take responsibility for a direction that may be wrong?

This New Age is about accessing and implementing the messages of your inner voice – which are never wrong for you. You may retort that schizophrenic and psychotic people follow their inner messages and look how far afield that takes them. Their’s is a different voice – a voice of the Old Age. The voice they are following is emanating from their mind, their ego – not their heart. And your need to believe that you may be psychotic if you follow your inner voice is yet another indicator that you are afraid of your power and of the New Age.

How can an Age of joy and happiness include thoughts of harming yourself or others? Listen to your heart, your inner being. That is your first and most important New Age lesson.

Your inner being will direct you to joy and lightness, for that is the function of your inner being. A function you closed down purposefully to more easily move through the Old Age. Now that it is time to access it again, you are overlaying its benefits and the resulting joy with fears produced through eons of living in the victim/martyr/controller roles of the Old Age.

Throw off your fears. Test drive your new inner thoughts and feelings.

But as is true for any fear, move through your fear of your inner voice at your own pace. Perhaps your first step into the New Age might be allowing yourself an ice cream cone or a quiet moment. It does not matter. Does it give you joy? Then it is of the New Age. Does it make you feel less than happy? Then it is of the Old Age.

Of course, there are still the naysayers telling you that such is never possible. Life is about pain and then you die. How silly and interesting that that last statement rings more true for you than does the belief that life is about joy and then you transform into a different form of joy.

Many of you read those last words and agreed. But observe your life, your current reality. How much joy do you allow? How much pain do you still expect? That is your personal measure of how you have accepted the New Age.

The New Age is here. And all you have to do to enmesh yourself in the joy that is the New Age, is to expect joy today, tomorrow and forever. Does that thought seem like a fairy tale? Then you remain in the Old Age. Does that seem like a possibility? Then you are tip-toeing into the New Age? Is that your reality and your expectation? Then you are of the New Age. So be it. Amen.

Power to the People!

Dear Ones,

Yes, the phrase, ‘Power to the People’ is even more true today than it was in your teens and twenties. More importantly for this piece, power to you.

Now you have long assumed that power meant a bigger title or a larger bank account. Which has been true for eons – but no longer. Power is shifting as rapidly as you are – the result of the energy shifts that have been bombarding the earth, and therefore you, for the last few months. Even though there will be many more shifts in the power arena, who would have ever suspected even a few years ago that a president of the United States could be elected without pummeling his opponent once his opponent took his ‘gloves off?’

Didn’t you expect President Obama to fight back when Hillary Clinton tagged him with various unpleasant features? Or even now, that he would spend his first years in office trying to drag the prior administration down? A few years ago, such a stance would not have been considered masculine. Did not your presidential candidate, George McGovern,  try something similar with the result that he was considered a wimp, not a true candidate? True men fight back. At least that used to be the case. We are not saying that President Obama has completely shifted the power structure, we are merely stating that he has started the process.

And so it will be for you. Have you recently found less and less interest being around those people who wish to manipulate others? Or are cruel? Or just make you feel dull and heavy? The very people, relatives and employers that you catered to in terms of doing what they wanted, so that you could reap the rewards they promised.  You were willing to accept insults, pay cuts, anger and fear just to maintain the contact that you felt you needed to survive.

Are you starting to surprise yourself with your ambivalence or total disinterest in catering to the needs of such people? Why do you suppose that is so? Blame it on the energy shifts. Blame it on your age. Blame it on anything you want. But we will tell you that just as you were belligerent about the rules laid down by society, your parents and the government in the 1960’s and 1970’s, you have returned to the stance of, “I don’t need the pain associated with your rules.” That is truly power to the people.

Just as plants turn to the sun, you are dramatically turning to love and peace and away from the darkness that has been your existence for the last few eons. We wish to add that you created that darkness for specific reasons – you have always created your reality – but those reasons are no longer pertinent. You have completed yur fear and pain lessons. It is time for love, joy and peace – your sunshine lessons. And just as was true in the 1960’s and 1970’s, you do not necessarily have a plan or even a direction other than you want to turn towards the sun. That is your power to the people and it always has been. You just negated it for a few decades to study your parents’ lives to better understand what you do n’o want and why. So be it. Amen.
