The Shadow You Feel is Your Higher Self

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

Sunshine and shadow are our topics today. Perhaps you see the sunshine as you look out your window, yet know deep within the recesses of your being that there is a shadow somewhere in your being. You feel as if you have completed the meditations, chanted the correct chants and opened your heart to yourself and others. Yet there remains a shadow being affecting your.

This shadow being is not about the fears and negative thoughts you have allowed to be part of your earth being. This shadow is your spirit being, your higher self joining your earth being.

This thought might be frightening. “Who or what is my higher self?” “Will my higher self force me to become a different person than I am now?” “What if I don’t like my higher self?” “And why is my higher self called my higher self? Is it better or more advanced than me?” “Does that term mean I can no longer interact with friends and relatives – that I will become some “godlike” creature who does not feel comfortable on earth or in heaven…or that I will have to give up my current pleasures to wonder in the desert?” All and none of the above.

Merging with your higher self/inner being merely means that you will access information and skills you have long denied to live in the former denseness of the earth, to “fit in.”. You will continue to “fit in” on earth, but in a much different way.

Prior to your recent and ongoing shifts, you were comfortable in two worlds – both heaven and earth. Again, this message is for the trailblazers, wagon train leaders and scout leaders of the New Age. You could easily channel, chant or interact with those on a spiritual path and return to you work-a-day world with very little difficulty. It just was. You did not tell your employer that you saw angels during conference meetings, nor were you interested in creating an elaborate business plan when you were interacting with your spiritual friends. Your two worlds existed side-by-side. In a sense, you had a split personality.

Such will be true no longer. This latest shift, the one we discussed last week – shifting from AM to FM frequencies – reduced your abilities to interact comfortably in the work-a-day world, and increased your spiritual abilities.

Those of you requiring funds to pay your bills or who love your job, may be frightened by this thought. Do not fear. All is coming together in a fashion indescribable with your current language skills – but your spiritual being will fully understand for our messages are relayed more by frequencies than words.

Let us describe how your new being, your new skills will change your life and thereby, the earth. Perhaps you expect to work for years to design the new widget that will produce millions for your company. Your joy is providing the solution no one else was able to discover. You will continue to do the same – only the design will make itself available to you in minutes or hours not years. Your boss will not necessarily be surprised because whatever has happened to you, you are now an instant creator. But if you are in the wrong field or the wrong company – one which does not value your new and enhanced creation skills, you will find the need to move on… or to create your own design company.

Combining your human self with your higher self merely means you are a complete being. You will have access to many more creation skills. And you will no longer wish to be around people who continue to plod their way through life, fearing this and fearing that.

Will you have fewer friends? Perhaps. Or you lose touch with your relatives? Perhaps. Or be forced through sheer boredom to leave your job, house or community? Perhaps. But more than likely, the scene you are already part of, or soon will be, will honor and expected your new and enhanced skills.

Those who honor you, will be those who wish to have the same skills – and by your modeling those skills, they will. Remember that you are trailblazers, wagon train leaders and scout masters. Your new skills will seem achievable to them because they knew you before you accessed them. The common thought process will become, “If he can do that so can I.”

Those who expect you to use your new and enhanced skills will be fellow trailblazers, wagon train leaders and scout masters. Your skills will be no more astounding to them than is your ability to wake up every morning and dress for work.

And so the New Age will shift from hope to reality for those who wish to be part of it.

Will most people now on earth be part of the New Age? Such a question is little different from the question of the early 1900s,  “How many people will want to own an automobile?” At first just a few. Yet within a few years, owning an automobile was the dream of most on earth. The same was true for the radio, television and the computer. A few brave souls create the product (In this case, New Age spirituality that combines heaven and earth easily and effortlessly.) and others test it out until it is such a common product/practice that no one can remember what life was like before.

The New Age was created by all of you. Now you are moving into the practice, the skills, the joy of the New Age. Allow a few bumps in the road – the first automobiles were not that convenient. But know within every fiber of your being, that your skills are enhanced and you merely have to decide how you wish to use those new skills.

When automobiles were first created, they were in all shapes and sizes with many components that defy description. You are testing your New Age skills in so many ways, not all of which are comfortable for you now or comfortable for others in the future. Suffice it for you to know that the shadow you are feeling is merely your higher self, with all the joy and excitement that entails, melding into your current earth being.

This is not a time for fear – it is a time of true creation, true design and true fun. Melding with your higher self means that all of your future and past beings are part of you, as well as their knowledge base and interests. So do not be surprised if one day you feel like taking singing lessons, the next creating a new flying vehicle and the next just reading a book. All are right and true as you combine your being to discover who your New Age person really is.

Will you emphasize shifting the economic structures, religious thoughts, expressing joy or laying on a beach for years creating philosophies instrumental for future generations? Will you become a great painter? A great writer? Or a lovely neighbor.

Create to your heart’s desire. Knowing full well that as you blend with your current shadow self, there are no limits and no rules – only that which gives you joy. So be it. Amen.

New Age Freedoms Will Create Chaos

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

Let us address an issue we have not looked at for some time. Many of you know others who are in pain. Perhaps their rage, and therefore, in their mind, the causation  is directed at a candidate, family member, religious group  or co-worker. It does not matter – they need someone to blame for all that is not going well in their life.

Each of you create your own life and invite those actors who are part of your life script into your life. Even though you have accepted that concept,  you might feel as if you are surrounded by those who feel that someone “out there” is responsible for their life and, therefore, their pain.

Many of you have tried to help those in pain understand this concept of self-creation, only to have such thoughts ignored or made fun of. Do not fret. It is not your role to teach others how to live. Your role is to live a life of joy and allow others to know that you are doing so.

Are you to stand on a soapbox proclaiming the rightness of your joy, your life? Are you to teach those who seem a bit slower than you to grasp the concepts of the New Age? No! Doing so would merely repeat the Old Age power role of, “I am right and you are wrong. And since you cannot seem to grasp the rightness of my religion, political party, beliefs, morals or values, I will teach you what is correct.”

All of you are moving at the pace that is correct for you. Each is a thread in the overall tapestry of life. In this New Age, you are a role model, not THE teacher of the correct concepts.

Allow yourself to flow as your inner being directs you. And allow the same freedom for others.

You may be concerned that such freedom will lead to complete chaos. It will.

Does every child learn how to tie their shoes at the same age and in the same way? Is there a correct way to tie shoes – or only that the shoelaces stayed tied when necessary? Some tie their shoes with a double knot. Some learn to tie their shoes in a left-handed fashion, others with big bows and still others with little bows. It does not matter as long as their shoes stay tied. So it is with your need to force others into the joys of the New Age.

In your thought processes, it is silly not to experience the joys of the New Age. Why would anyone opt for a life of pain, anger and fear? Why indeed? Maybe those people need to explore certain issues before moving into the joys of the New Age. Maybe they are afraid of the New Age. Or maybe they never will move into the New Age in this lifetime.

This is the bridge lifetime. Some will remain on the bank looking at the bridge. While those of you reading these materials have either started across the bridge or have crossed over to the opposite bank. Again, it does not matter.

Your life is not dictated by their pain. Anymore than their joy dictates your joy. You are unique individuals choosing the direction you wish to take. The New Age has arrived with all the freedoms that this Age entails.

The Old Age was filled with rigid rules and regulations; the New Age is about freedom.

The first people involved with air travel were envied by some and thought fools by others. Yet in a few years, airline traffic became commonplace. So it is now with the New Age, but on a much larger scale. We are not addressing the freedom to fly in an airplane, we are speaking of shifting all of your thoughts and patterns from what society expects to total freedom.

Some people now on earth will never have the courage to take that large emotional leap. Others of you could not wait and are already enmeshed in the joys of such freedom.

Do not worry about others. Pain may be their key lesson plan for many years They will ignore  or deny any positive thoughts, actions and results. They want to see and feel pain and that is their right. Allow that to be. Your only concern is following your inner being. You are no one’s caretaker, nor are you a victim.

If you doubt that last thought, place yourself in a victim role. You have been moving forward so steadily across the bridge that you have probably not yet tested your resolve, your new being. Oh, you might wobble a bit. You might try on a victim cloak for a few hours or even days, but the victim role is so unlike anything of the New Age that you will soon throw it off…and laugh as you are doing so. For you, there is no longer the enticing drama you used to associate with victim hood.

Care taking is a different story. Your need to make sure that everyone is happy is merely a replay of your Old Age care taking role. Not everyone wants to be happy. Allow them that freedom. And allow yourself to move into joy as rapidly as you wish. You no longer have to live in pain to interact with friends and relatives. Those people who wish to live in joy will find you. Those people who wish to remain in pain will have less and less in common with you.

Your only role is to move as your inner voice suggests. And for those of you following this Blog, that is across the New Age bridge to the other side. You are not a bad or mean person if you cross the bridge before others – you are merely playing the role you created for yourself. And the same is true for those who wish to stay on the bank for a bit longer or throughout this lifetime.

Allow yourself the freedom to be…and the same for others.

The New Age has arrived. Relish your joy and your fun. And allow others to remain on the bank – that is their right and their freedom. So be it. Amen.

Life is Good! And So are You!

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

What a day indeed! Soon you will be changing that phrase to, “What a life indeed!”

Many of you are moving into your place of joy – more rapidly than you thought possible and yet, not nearly fast enough!

You have been hoping, praying and meditating about the glorious New Age for decades. Now that it is here, you are a bit surprised. We laugh with joy with you. For indeed, the reality of the New Age in these beginning stages is a bit unreal even to the most faithful. Similar to hoping that there is a heaven of some sort after death, but not certain that such is true.

Even more surprising to many of you  is that you are finding less and less to be fearful about. Of course, you have long expressed the belief that the world is shifting from an Old Age to a New Age. But the reality is more astounding and yes, overwhelming than you thought possible. Something like your young characters in literature who expect nothing for Christmas only to find that special bicycle of their dreams under the Christmas tree.

You have hoped the New Age would become reality, but you were never sure. How could you be? The New Age concepts are so foreign to your previous reality. A bit like Cinderella attending the ball. How is it possible that what you dream of can become reality – so easily?

Some of you reading this material will discard it in anger – nothing wonderful is happening to you. Your life has not changed one iota. You still wake up, dress, go to work at a job you dislike, come home, eat dinner and go to sleep only to repeat that pattern over and over. Stop. Stop being angry. Stop being fearful. Stop playing with your Old Age cards. The New Age is here – as many are beginning to experience and explore.

Allow those scout masters to report back to you. And accept their reports in joy for their reports are definite indicators that the “promised land,” the New Age is here.

Do you know of people who seem to be manifesting one positive idea after another? Watch them, observe them and know they are your teachers. They are displaying your possibilities. And we must add, displaying only the “tip of the iceberg” of possibilities. Even your scout masters have not begun to access all the skills now available to each of you.

The Wild West scout masters did not understand the meaning of moving a country west. They could see the beauty of the landscape, but they did not comprehend that one day their initial view of that new land would become the cities, recreation areas and national parks all of you take for granted. Those first scout masters merely saw the possibility of a few people farming the land.

Such is true for those scout masters now creating their dreams in a seemingly easy fashion. They are accessing the landscape but have yet to acknowledge and access the myriad of skills to which all of you have access.

The scout masters are providing the broad landscape, you are the wagon train leaders who will populate the area. And all of you will find a wealth of skills far beyond those pioneers who profited from the California gold rush.

Start noting those people around you who seem to be moving effortlessly and easily into the areas they desire. They are your scout masters. They are helping you realize the possibilities. And they are finding new worlds for you to populate – new worlds filled with joy and fun.

Do not be jealous of your scout masters. Relish their skills and their joy at helping you move in the direction you wish. Will you want the same life they create? Probably not. But that is as it should be.

If your dreams continue to be dreams for a bit longer, you probably did not opt to be a scout master. Most likely you wished to be a wagon train leader.

As was true in the Wild West, scout masters had to find the land and then encourage others with their stories of beauty and potential. The wagon train leaders followed the scout masters with those who wanted to move to the new lands.

Those of you reading Brenda’s blogs are either a scout master or a wagon train leader. It does not matter which. Both are moving into the New Age more rapidly than most. Both are “testing the waters” for those who will follow.

If you find someone who is creating the life they want easily and effortlessly, observe them – not in jealousy, but in joy for that means the New Age is truly here. And if you are one of those people, stop and giggle for you have access to a whole new world – and you will joyously teach others how to access the same.

Life is good! And so are you. So be it. Amen.

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.

You Are Far More Courageous Than You Realize

Channeled for Life Tapestry by Brenda Hoffman

Dear Ones,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Returning to Fear Helps No One

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry

Dear Ones,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Address your current issues of concern with your new skills.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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