We are entering a new decade for humanity. You probably can feel it in your gut; nothing is exactly like it was. Nothing can be definitively planned for the coming year. Its ingredients are whirling in the ethers of our Earth and will be impacted by the choices that we make – personal choices, relationship choices, community choices, state and country choices. Does that seem odd to you? After all, some in authority tell us that our vote, our actions don’t count; just let their idea of how a country should function take over. We have been taught that we are alone in making our life work; that each of us must ‘pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps”. That the poor are responsible for their economic plight. That there is no one to help us but ourselves. Isn’t that depressing!
There are other sayings that, to me, reflect more of what is true for our human world – ‘no man is an island’; ‘it takes a community to raise a child’. The truth is that we are all part of one whole; One Soul that is all of us together. Just like the cells of a human body, they all hold different functions for the body and how well each cell functions impacts the wellbeing of the body; what the other cells and organs do impact each cell’s wellbeing and the choices that we make as to food and exercise impact the health of each cell in our bodies. In the same way, what each of us does impacts the capabilities and capacities of the whole Soul. This is a one-for-all, all-for-one world. If we are divided, separated, and think that we have no impact on the whole, then the magnificent human Soul will wither and be so much less that our specie’s and our Soul’s possibilities.
That is why the choices that each of us make really do impact the whole world. The butterfly in Africa impacts the weather in the United States. That’s quantum physics. It’s also a fact that we are one interrelated whole. We are connected to everyone else and everyone else is connected to us. It’s a living breathing matrix of life where we pulse together creating a world that our children’s children will live in. We are matrixed together with all other life on earth and with the earth herself. As part of this interrelated, interactive and interdependent matrix, we have both rights and responsibilities.
We choose our future and humanities future thru our present-day choices and actions. Choices that seem individual but in their impact are so much more. They impact our own lives, our body, our family, our community, our state, our nation and the world. All life on earth is interactive, interdependent and inter-related. We can’t get away from that and we don’t want to get away from it, because without that interdependence, interrelatedness and interactivity, we would not have the capabilities and capacities that our species has. It’s takes interaction to move, to create. It’s takes acknowledged interdependence for us to make the best choices for ourselves, our families and our communities. We have to make many of those choices together, listening to what we each crave most for our society and our culture.
A lot of ideas in our societies have been set up on the premise that we are singular and that individuals are not impacted by what happens to another. We insulate ourselves within our homes, our housing developments, our religions, our politics and we pretend that someone else is at responsible for the state of our communities, our nations and the world. That is never true. We are responsible and we can choose the kind of family, community, nation and earth that we crave.
How do we make choices that will support all of humanity to be more of what our species was created to be? By paying attention at the individual, family, community, state, nation and earth levels. This summer you saw people stepping back and looking at the Black Lives Matter movement and seeing a human problem that impacted all of us – white, brown, black, yellow. If one is not safe, then no one is safe. You see it when people fight against the food conglomerates and chemical conglomerates who de-vitalize our food supply and then blame us for our health problems. You see people step up against their local, state and national governments when those governments do not protect its citizens in water and air pollution issues. You see it when people choose to buy local fresh produce and leave behind the processed food that holds so little nutrients for us. You see it when a parent won’t allow bullying or violence in their home. You see it when an individual stops their negative self-talk. You see it when individuals persist in writing their Creation Exercises regularly so that they can re-matrix the old words of the past, and matrix the new life that they crave.
In the United States, we are choosing our President for the coming four years. I have heard people talk on behalf of their preferred candidate. I have heard educated people say that they don’t think that they will vote because it’s a toss-up for what each will bring to our future. I think this is a cop out. I agree that there there is so much that has to change in how the US government and our political system functions. Many people are discouraged that so much has to change to create a better society. It can feel like an intractable system and our one small vote can’t shift it. All of our small votes together can shift the present situation. We can stand for what we hope will be the future of our country and our peoples.
Yet, we are here now. Just like with your GPS, you have to enter your present location and your desired future location. We are not where we want to be as species or as a nation, and this is not the time to give up. This is the time to define your version of paradise for the United States. Is there universal health care? Is our maternal death rate the lowest in the world? Is our food supply revitalized and healthy? Do all people, regardless of race, age, religion or sexual orientation, have equal rights under the law and within our communities? Those are elements of what I crave for the US. What are yours? Which party is the most likely to move you toward your paradise for the United States and for the earth? Not voting is a choice. It hands over to others what is both your responsibility and your right to decide what is the most desirable future for the US.
You cannot hope to enjoy paradise unless you take the responsibility for dreaming it and living it in your individual life, your community life, your life as a citizen of your state and your country and as a member of the Earth’s children. To use your rights later, you must act responsibly now.

As so often happens when I am preparing for some transformational experiences in my life, such as an amazing journey to Italy and Damanhur this month, an acrostic poem took shape for the word expand. Thank you to the Pre-Med participants who so artfully gave me the language to feed into the field. I honor all of you who participated, thinking the words would be used for a mandala, which they shall, yet the language can be present here as well:
E: Etheric’s Balance
X: “X-pand”; extend the threads of consciousness out past into the beyond
P: Participate in the rituals of Movement and Community
A: Awaken allies between the Cosmos and Earth
N: NOW experience the lotus in the heart opening as above so below
D: Divine Guidance at its Highest Potential
The field has been alive with the activity of consciousness expansion this past month. I feel our beingnesses stretching and accommodating the immense growth and expansion that is now occurring daily. I commend each and every field being at this time. It takes great courage to be willing to shift into higher octaves, with greater landscapes, when we are not certain of what is happening.
The field is alive with possibilities and daily messages coming through about forming allies with Damanhur, and with beings we may have not met yet, as well as with others who share this path whom we may know but have not met in the Spirals. We have been preparing. This brings to mind a humorous scene in “Alladin”, where the bird says, “I’m molting!” It feels that way…molting smaller feathers for larger ones.
We are threading our consciousness and awareness together to form an amazing matrix, one ally with another and another. The configuration of the allies we are gathering and forming with is astounding. Have you been dreaming? Have you met new allies in dreams? Who are they? There are so many questions, and new ‘awarenesses’ popping up, so many that we cannot keep track of them.
What rises in your sitting with this language? What peaks your curiosity about being with allies of the Field of Tantra Maat? Where does your being fit in with this equation? I can feel us all interconnected and woven into the equation, as beautiful gem-colored elements, necessary for the new alliances to be born. We have all worked with such diligence, doing what is ours to do to make this activity happen. And now we shall rock Italy with the purity and love of just being together for the sake of being alive!
We are with each other in this powerful month of rebirth, restoration, awareness and expansion of consciousness. Hold onto each hand, as we spread the love of this field, and step into new landscapes of Being!

Tools to Thrive is a monthly webinar participation for exploring what supports this human system in thriving. ‘Thriving’ means to grow or develop well or vigorously, prosper; flourish. For many of us, this means being able to live well beyond just surviving, what lots of us in modern Western society call ‘getting out of the rat race’. Maslow’s ideas regarding self-actualization describe that once survival needs are met, then the idea of what is needed expands to the next greater whole.
The process of ‘self-actualization’ really means that there are recursions of thriving. In other words, when you are an infant, thriving means being warm, having plenty to eat, regular diaper changes, consistency of care-givers, love and being kept safe. At this point in life, survival needs seem the same as what is required to thrive. There really isn’t much conceptual awareness of more or better life than that in infancy, although the seeds of a much bigger potential are, of course, in each of us. Yet marvelous mechanisms of growth and development propel our systems to constantly move to new heights, new greater wholes, of physical, mental, emotional (and other intelligences), and spiritual attunement and attainment. At each stage of life, the sense or awareness of thriving changes, and has limitations, with a seed of being waiting to germinate in each of us.
In our monthly call, we have so far begun to explore ideas, choices, behaviors, conditions, environments and other phenomenon which facilitate thriving. This month, we’ll explore what thriving is for each of us at this moment in our lives, and how that might be relative to where we were in life and where we’re going. Also, we will explore some of the myths around thriving. We will also gather ideas for future conversations: not because thriving is something outside ourselves, possibly just out of reach, possibly unattainable. We’ll explore and gather topics for future conversations because thriving is hard-wired into the human system, and we cannot help but reach for that next recursion of self-expression, fulfillment, contribution.

What is commitment to you? Why is commitment important? Not much in our culture today encourages our commitment except to holding on to historic beliefs, to addictions, to toxic practices. On the other side, commitment to the latest diet craze, or to extreme exercise programs is encouraged, well, until the next craze comes on the scene. Mostly there is very little focus on commitment to self, commitment to creating the life that is what the individual person craves. We are encouraged to buy a future ‘off the shelf’ that someone else created, that someone else says that we should want.
The creation exercises from the Language of Creation were developed so that you can create a future that is what you want for yourself, for those you love or for humanity, where you can grow your strength, your stamina and your capacity to be whom you came here to be. Where you can define what different words, concepts and states of being are for YOU. This sounds so good to me, and I hope that your inner Being is running forward yelling, ‘me, me, me, I want that!” You can have that AND this is where that word commitment comes in. Yes, you get the best outcomes if you commit to writing the creation exercises on a regular basis so that you continually are informed by your deepest Self, as well as informing it and Creation ‘where you are’ in the process. Hmmm.
I hope that you aren’t backing off here. This is not a forced march, this is just being willing to put in some writing time on a regular basis so that you get what you want. First, this does not require your historic mental mind to construct this future, because it can’t. We are talking about a future unique to your Spirit & body. We are talking about a craved future that you probably are not consciously aware of.
For example, in our Language of Creation course, our classic example of a craving is starting with craving ‘a red convertible’ and it ends up with an embody phrase that ‘wants to have good times with friends’. It’s that kind of awareness that unfolds as you write your cravings. It’s the craving behind the craving. My experience is that the embodied phrase is often what I want most for this lifetime, to BE as I came here to be, to DO as I came to earth to DO, to have what I came on earth to HAVE. It’s not a conscious process and the templates of the Language of Creation were developed to assist us in unpacking our deepest cravings for our unique present and future.
So back to commitment. I know that I have used the phrase ‘regular writing of the creation exercises’ as the measure of commitment AND this is all yours to define. How often do you write? Every day? Every other day? 3x a week? 1x a week? Where do you write? In your bedroom? In your office? In your dining room? When do you write during the day? Morning? Afternoon? Evening? You decide these measures of your commitment and then it is for you to carry out your commitment.
Oh no, you forgot to write when you committed to write a creation exercise! Ok, then write an observing and get back to your commitment or create a new commitment plan. ‘Remembering’ is a gift that gets you back on track to discovering all that you deeply want to BE, DO and HAVE.
We have several supports for you. First, if you are unsure if you are writing the Creation Exercises correctly, we have coaches who can give you a free 30 session to answer your questions. To request a coach, go to firstname.lastname@example.org/
We have several Instructional videos and Guidebooks. https://iuwcinstitute.com/product-category/instructional-videos/
We offer our 90 Day Creation Projects that provide you a timeframe within which to commit and that place you in the field with others. Our mutual focus on writing the creation exercises ends up building a supportive network around each other so that we all are in a stronger field of manifestation. We have a Facebook page, Generating Realities, where we share our creation exercises. Each of us can use this page to read others’ exercises, to get ideas for what we ourselves might write as a craving exercise, to ask questions, and/or share what we are experiencing as our perspectives of who and what we are shifts.
We strongly recommend that you join the 90 Day Creation Project. Within the field of the 90 Day Creation Project, you can grow your capacity for commitment to being whom you came here to be. You can grow your strength to handle these turbulent times and experience being more balanced. You can increase your stamina over time in both your commitment capabilities and in your capacity to move out of the old historic you and into the craved Self.
We have a new 90 Day Creation Project starting on March 20th, 2019 – the Spring Equinox. To register, go to https://iuwcinstitute.com/events-5/
Upon registration, you will receive several follow-up emails and then two newsletters a month with blogs. Most of all, you will build your commitment to what you crave to BE, not the latest craze, but whom you want to be. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it! Register today to start writing on March 20th as part of the Spring 2019 90 Day Creation Project. Email us with any questions that you have. We can be reached at email@example.com.
