The ego-self is an amalgamation of beliefs, some positive and others negative. These beliefs can be added to the ego by you or those around you. Ego thoughts are typically founded on polarities such as ideas of being better or worse than others. These thoughts can also be self-serving. For instance, believing you are smart is rooted in the foundational belief that you are smarter than another or others. What's more, the ego is hungry, "I want, I need, I am entitled to..." The hungry ego makes us vulnerable to things such as disappointment, hurt and resentment of yourself and others.
Who would we be without the fallacious ego? One would be a being without judgment of one self and others, without selfish motives like besting others, preserving ego beliefs or egocentric desires based on entitlement. Detaching from our ego-self connects us to our higher-self. It is the best part of who we are when the ego has fallen away. The counterfeit concept of self is no longer needed, and we are free from resentment and disappointment from this life and the last.
The higher self is both a spiritual entity and a conduit. Once we connect and communicate with our higher self, we are deeply in touch with our truth. A sign of connection to our higher self is a strong sense of integrity and a profound alignment with our life path and life purpose. Our higher self also provides guidance and understanding, through intuition and spiritual knowing. When we are connected to our higher self we will have keen instincts and trust our senses.
The greatest gift our higher self has to offer is the spiritual wisdom from guides, angels and ascended masters...all of whom are a part of us. This sacred wisdom can help us break karmic cycles that we carry from lifetime to lifetime, and helps us see the delusions of the material world. This knowledge is the essence of transcendence. As such, our higher self is the catalyst for enlightenment and enlightenment itself. The enlightened individual inhabits this world and yet resonates with a frequency much beyond it.
Connecting to the higher self is not complicated. However, for some, the challenge is to quiet the mind. To connect to the higher self, one must quiet the nervous chatter of the ego. This can be achieved through the practice of mindfulness and presence. Being fully present in the now, observing ones experiences, emotions and thoughts, without judgment is a means to connect with the higher self. When we do that reflexively, across different circumstances, and around different energies, it is a sign we are connected to the higher self.
Meditation is another practice that fosters a deep connection to the higher self. Calming the busy mind and quieting the chatter of the ego is a valuable practice when connecting to the higher self. Being able to maintain a deep mental stillness throughout the day and maintaining a distance between our inner peace and the external busyness of our surroundings is another indication one is connected to the higher self.
To receive communication from the higher self, some people use divination tools such as scrying mirrors, pendulums, oracle cards. Automatic writing is an easy divination tool that requires nothing more than a pen and paper. The practice involves setting the intention to connect with the higher self, ideally after meditation, and writing on the paper. One may start by doodling, scribbling or writing nothing at all. With time, and without expectations or prejudgment, one will start to write words, perhaps even full sentences from the higher self. No matter what tool is used, even if one opts to use nothing at all, the best means of connecting with the higher self is receptivity and openness to the spiritual messages we are guided to.
Openness and receptivity are strong signs of connection to the higher self. When the delusions of the material world begin to fall away, one will be more perceptive to spiritual truths and energies, helping us transcend our current experiential existence and begin to authentically merge with the higher self across the ages.
Although the higher self is a part of who we are, it may seem like a far climb and a lengthy process to connect with ones divine essence. The advice I give to clients is to not overwhelm oneself. Having intention to begin the journey is a sign you have already begun to connect to that part of you that is divine and spiritually connected to Source.
In love and truth,

No matter how many courses you take, no matter how many lectures you attend, no matter how many books you read, no matter how many gurus you adopt, no matter how many mediums or healers you see, no matter how much you pray, no matter how much you live, no matter how well-articulated you are, no matter how often you attend church, you will spiritually awaken and ascend when your heart and soul are ready. It is not a mind decision, it is a very intimate heart and soul decision. You are right where you are meant to be. Right here, right now.

Channeling the Collective
Deep transitioning continues to happen as we, who are choosing to awaken at this time, hold our destiny in our own hands. We are able to weave our destiny based on that which inspires us. We are continuing down the path to a new life. We are going very, very deep as we build foundations for our destiny to rest upon. Those who follow this channel are becoming and are more closely aligned with our soul journey and remember, it is our journey that is the purpose. It will be Divinely Ordered to fit the pattern of our energy with which we come in to have this life adventure. We are moving deeper into that which we are devoted to. It's a time of gathering our soul journeys into our human walk.
And just as we weave our destiny around that which inspires us, the love of devotion, the soul impulses, that which we give our time, attention, and energy to can be renewed in order for growth to happen.
We are coming to understand that our believing, in such a way, attends to our shadow self (which we all have) and we are coming to an awareness of that which no longer serves us because the basis of those things are very unstable.
Therefore, standing in our new-found foundations, we see a beautiful release that is happening because that is the soul-impulse of inspiration toward which we are moving. It's important to be aligned, within our yin (feminine) and our yang (masculine) intrinsic nature. For, when we stand in that power we bring down that which is happening, above, onto the earth plane (below). Because of this alignment, the rivers of sacred knowledge flows through us and brings about that beautiful physical reality.
Allowing the river of sacred knowledge to move through us, without distractions of addictions and judgments, we will find enormous growth and renewal.
Now it is imperative that we not worry about what's about to transpire. We have come into a form of sacred knowledge, through the soul journey, and we are called to stand in our own lives. We are called to look at the fractures of our selves.
This is about those parts of ourselves as well as those in our lives we've had to let go of so we/they can regain our/their own power and stand in themselves/ourselves, power in hand, and face the obstacles that were coming up through the cracks in our psyche's and our own lives and our own resistance to self - to take back our own power, that which belongs to us and stand firm in our place, imbued with sacred knowledge because we've come through judgments and have arrived at our sacred place.
In our attachment to our stories, we've become aware of how we've been betrayed (within and without) and we take back what is rightfully ours. We've had to face this and take back our power.
Our strength has been regained which the shadows of those who've had negative intentions in the past are now being ferreted out of the shadows into the light for all to see.
As we are challenged within and without, there's an unfathomable deep development of our will which transcends words. The challenges are creating upheaval, creating chaos, shredding form across the earth to ensure us a positive outcome because we are meant to initiate the regrowth and formation of understanding and a new way of be-ing.
We are, more than ever, collectively, deeply aligned with our personal journeys.
Souls are attempting to break free of ancestral bondage and most souls are succeeding as the human slumber wakes up. It is important to question how will you be released of fear? How are you limiting yourself? A very primal unfolding is happening and the challenges are very personal in order to drive the fact that we are one - home. Our renewal, our growth, our awakening - where we give away our power, we lose a part of ourselves and now we are integrating the lost fractals of our soul selves.
Some of you will have a very personal understanding of this message and some will see what is happening on a bigger scale and some will not understand this message in the least.
There's an enormous amount of support and assistance when we align with our soul-selves and those in alignment with the sacred realms. When we let go of those parts of ourselves that we've hidden for so long, we become poised and we take on the identities of transmitters of wisdom for others.
Having been transformed, there's a key to a new life as we let go of that which no longer serves us and we become renewed...and in doing so, we solidify our mission with devotion and dedication to that which we desire.
Wishing you love, blessings, and peace.

As 2018 progresses we (awakening souls) are sent on our creative mission. As we demonstrate how we stand we are being provided what we need. We are continuing to cultivate the deep relationship of yin and yang within and becoming that which we deeply are. We've been exploring the art of our spiritual be-ing and we are beginning the development of new skills. Deepening our preparation of the will to proceed on our sacred path...the path to self-knowing. The upcoming months will be a preparation phase as we learn to process ourselves into and out of the mystery realms.
We are empowerers of will. Riding deep into the mystical and the mysterious into our own natures and there's an awareness now of the type of journey we are on.
Our latent powers are being discovered and attuned by unconscious influences. Dreams, visions, introspection and creative conception are keywords for this month and for May, 2018. Prophecy, empowerment, decision making power to work alongside (not below) the sacred beings of many levels of the celestial realms.
Attuning to the natural rhythms of the Universe, we are changing from the inside out for this year. We are in deep renewal and change as we bring matters of life to resolution. Obviously, participants in humanity are experiencing this on different levels. Things are being rooted up for purging.
There is a deepening of compassion and understanding of our internal patterns within and without and a questioning where the transformational healing and change is. We are operating from our hearts having made a journey of deep transformation.
We find ourselves warriors of the heart.
Many relationships are ending in order for the new sacred journeys to come together with those who are joined from the heart, first and foremost, rather than the root (lust). These relationships will bridge the journey to the soul, building on what's come before us and connected deeply within.
There will be a sudden, unexpected form of knowledge that can create anxiety within and we are encouraged to just breathe and allow the self to integrate this from knowledge to understanding. This may throw some off balance, but it is necessary for the light to seep in.
Most may not understand this until months or years later.
Wishing you many blessings, love and peace,

I began this article over a month ago as I wanted to bring insight into this year 2018. With many shifts and changes in my own life, I had to defer to other life events and I find it quite prolific that I'm able to finish it on the first full moon of March, my birthday month.
With that said, it is my current belief that my sun sign, Pisces, is an energy that embodies and enfolds the spirit of all zodiac signs on some level. There are messages coming through me that have been accompanying me on this journey. What is coming through is a foreshadowing and that which has supported us in our journey...shifts and growth up to now. Spirit acknowledges us and the place in which we now stand. I am in deep gratitude that you have been with me on this journey I've been on while conversing with many of you.
As I journey into and through 2018 there is more gratitude for each and every one of you for the courage, support, patience you've been sending me.
Many of us have been going so very deep into our intrinsic natures as we travel on the soul level. 2018, as I understand it, will be about the very deep acknowledgment of ourselves - of our be-ing and of the way in which each of us stands on this planet.
As spirit beings, having come through our transitions, shifts and changes - as we walk this year we will be in a new state of being as we have been completely transformed using all that has become available to us through our shifts and changes within.
As we continue to transition in 2018 it is no surprise there's indication of a new life. Many of you stand, reborn, having acquired new visions, new truths - we arise. I cannot think of a more beautiful and more pertinent passage for all who have ascended and are being received by our own spirits.
We are movers of energy and many of us are in forward motion. We have a new awareness and a new set-point....a new beginning. In other words, we either have or are re-birthing ourselves.
Our shifts and changes guided us deeply into this new foundation for 2018. We now hold the abundance of that which arises from our hearts in order to be able to determine our next steps in our 2018 journey and we will choose our own pathway. With this type of clarity of heart-vision, there's dedication as we walk and continue to choose on a day-to-day basis...we will be able to step deeper into those parts of ourselves and feel the devotion to our true-selves journey.
We will be taken, having transitioned, to a new set-point. We will experience the ability to use our new skill-sets and states of being that we downloaded and acquired through real experience. We will be able to reach the destiny of the melding of our yin-yang energy, our male/female aspects, which,through a mystical series of events, were able to meld these two together, after going through extremely difficult periods of opposition to this union.
Both yin and yang have ascension stories into the next realms of our journey.
With that said, the experiences that have caused us to be separate, in whatever way we have experienced it, we will be able to meld and ascend into the next realm of the journey. We are now able to allow this new melded energy to move us forward as we walk.
For the next part of our journey (having gone through the difficulties and opposition) we have reached a very mystically informed life that is built upon the devotion of our hearts. We either have or will come to the place of activating this part of our being, arising through the fire into the commitment to our destiny.
As we move forward, there may be others standing in our way of this melding of yin yang and during this walk into this merging to this new set-point. We have learned how to remove the obstacles by using our ability in non-violent ways. We have come into this place of knowledge. We will be encapsulating that which attempts to thwart our energy.
We each have both the male and female energy within and available to us to bring our ability to create big change and supersede obstacles. There's been a profound mystical change.
This year, having arrived, we are able to use our own mystical abilities to move forward to what's promised on this new plane of existence.
Many are questioning, "what am I to do?" "Why am I here?" "I don't know what to do to move forward." The answer is that we are already doing it. If you have personal goals that you are striving to achieve, of course you want to continue moving in that direction. But always give yourself credit that you are a being in the process of creation through the creation and experience of your own journey. You are enough.
As things are unfolding and to help you understand the reality of that which you've been through and have felt in your hearts, it is the soul journey that has been your bridge to removing the obstacles to the soul journey you are meant to have.
Humanity has been slumbering but now there's an awakening. The awakening process deepens as your soul arises and goes through the portal of the mystical realm walking to the sacred of all creation. What a beautiful creation you are.

I took a few days off, about a month or so ago, and dug deep within to focus and listen to my inner Guidance. The messages I've been receiving is it is time to accept our Angelic roles and accept the responsibility for what is happening with these intense energy shifts and how they impact, not only me, but those of you, in the world, who know you have some kind of mission but are not quite sure what that is or maybe you do know. I have had to get still and really look within my heart and soul to pull up clarity and validation on my mission in this life. For those of us who KNOW, beyond a shadow of a doubt, who we are and where our spiritual strengths lie, well...many of us are getting really tired. It takes a lot of human strength to stand in our authenticity and to not waver all the while trying to find our flow. It takes so much strength of will to decide, sometimes moment to moment, to hold space for those we love - for those we know are struggling to keep their blinders on and stay asleep to the truth of what's happening in and around us. I suspect most of you have been doing the same as I see most people clearing out old beliefs, old behavior patterns, old belongings, old friends, old lovers, that no longer serve us and our Divinely held missions. We are still in a purging process and that process is going to become more intense for those who've chosen to do nothing about what their hearts are screaming at them to do. The eleventh hour is approaching and time is speeding up. Can you feel it? So, those of you who have been on the spiritual path for awhile and may not even know it, good for you. The changes that are going to occur may not impact you too harshly. To those who have chosen not to adhere to their original soul missions, it's going to be a bumpy ride as the veil is yanked down.
What have I received from my time off? I'm stepping into my power more deeply. I am a Divine Being of light and I'm here to create a ripple effect on those lives I touch either physically or energetically. Those of you who know me, know this is true. We are here to believe in ourselves and to not give up our power of love and compassion. It is time to step up our game.
Those of you who are on the Soul Mates/Twin Flame journey, whether you are partnered or not, KNOW that you are of a special "species" of the Angelic realm and EACH ONE of you carries unique light codes that will be activated at just the right time in your evolution, very specific to your life mission which will ripple out to help save our planet. Awakenings are happening all over this planet whether it's just one half of the soul mate/twin flame are activated or both. There is no higher unconditional love, on this plane, than the love reflected back at you from your Divinely Inspired partner(s). It is the holy trinity. And you are here to complete a mission with this partner, even if it's only on an energetic level.
You know, deep within you, that you are a unique being of light. And, very specifically, all of your experiences up to now, is needed for you to wake up and to remember that we are here to end the way we are programmed and told to live and love in our society.
Allow your passion to emanate into the entire world and stop pussy-footing around with karmic relationships that are not serving your highest good, that are not rooted in true love, that are not rooted in pure soul truth.
Do not give up on one another. Believe in yourself. When we believe in our own Divine Power, we can call it back at any time. Call the fragments of your soul to be magnetized to your being and ask for the pieces of the puzzle to complete and to make you whole again so you can remember who you are.
Then, let those you love know how wonderful and magnificent they are to you. It is time to thrive and to stop striving. Don't push your time back anymore because YOU are an integral part of the whole. There's no more time to waste. It is time for all to recognize life has meaning on a very high level of existence.
It is time to accept your Angelic role and the responsibilities that come with this role.
By Lori Lines
Message: We are part of a movement to rise above old Karmic patterns. We are realizing we are nomads and wanderers, not meant to sit while society dumbs us down. With this new movement we are called to ask ourselves, "What will make me happy?"
We are meant to come upon ourselves and SEE ourselves. If you're in a relationship with someone who is seeing you as subservient or a slave like the system does, you're not going to see your true self. You're not going to be able to elevate into this new existential be-ing that you truly are.
Pray. Push forward. Meditate. Find your silence. Unplug. Put your phone down sometimes. Start asking yourself the difficult questions. "What would make me happy?"
I guarantee you, without a shadow of a doubt, it's not going to be just money. When I ask myself - let me just lay myself out here for you for a moment - when I ask myself, "What would make me, Lori, happy?" My higher self tells me:
If you dive in to love, dive in as deep as you can. Let love be your guide. Let love pull you through the deepest tides and the darkest skies, because God is Divine Love. Work on these things before you start to tear yourself down by telling yourself you're not adequate or not enough.
Meditate. Mantra. Pray. Visualize. Tell this creative love what you REALLY want to be happy. You want to be seen. You want to be held. You want to be touched in your heart, on your body, in your soul - through Divine Love. Let the work begin and move forward. Let your work begin.
I wish you love, blessings, and peace.

We've all had moments when things suddenly became clear. The haze dissipates and what was there all along becomes obvious. The solutions to a problem you've been pondering for days, weeks, or even months unexpectedly presents itself. The things you've always been told as true of which you only half-believed or dis-believed, now becomes as real as your own existence. The issue you've been wrestling with dissolves and your heart catches fire with inspiration and immediately you know what you must do. Sometimes we wonder how we could have missed what is now so plainly apparent.
A diligent meditation practice promises moments such as these. Most psychics have a way of being naturally "mindful" with the ability to slow down the mind long enough to "catch" or extrapolate these insights into truth. These are unmistakable moments when something within you moves and you can see things differently. These moments are not only called "insights" but also called "clear gazing."
A mindfulness meditation practice possesses the deeper purpose of gaining insight into the way the world IS and to live our lives according to the truths that present themselves. Insight can appear at any time. Yet, meditation prepares the mind to receive them. We cannot coerce insights but we can clear the way for them to arise.
If you already practice mindfulness or "presence," you've already been doing the necessary groundwork for gaining insight. In fact, you may have already experienced insights and started to feel that a whole new world is opening up to you. Here's why: Meditation helps us to be more attentive to our lives. At the same time, it enables us to develop a new relationship with our experience, characterized by acceptance and relinquishment. We learn, through meditation, that just because a thought arises does not mean we have to believe it. It's just a thought. And, given the erratic nature of the mind, it's probably not a keeper. If we simply accept the fact that it has arisen and let it go, without aversion or attachment, the mind remains clear, spacious, and ready to see what is there. The qualities of attention, acceptance, and relinquishment are what prime our minds for insight.
Meditation practice enables us to recognize our ideas and beliefs, accept them for what they are, and remain unattached to them. We allow our thoughts and sensations to arise and then allow them to go their own way. In this manner, we maintain "beginners mind." The mind of openness and flexibility. The mind that can be taught, that can view things afresh.

Message: Those of you who are on the spiritually enlightened path may be experiencing a wall. What I mean is, I see a lot of lower vibrational karma being walled off from many of us. So many of us have repeated the same patterns lifetimes over lifetimes with the same old limiting beliefs and with the same old souls over and over again. Those of you who are old souls who've been doing your focused self-healing have felt so tired of it. Right? If you haven't already, you will soon be feeling the "upliftment" you've heard many talking about.
I've been feeling my past karmic patterns burning away and the ashes placed on the other side of the wall. Interesting that my once fantastic memory of negative feeling of the past is now fading from all the hurt, negativity and old wounds of eons gone by. Forgiveness reigns. Old lower vibrations (people, situations, things, thoughts) are falling away. Joy, happiness, soul truth is emerging and getting stronger.
Rise up and allow the wall to be. If your feeling memories are fading and you feel they are completed, I would not advise going to peek over the wall again. Then again, you may have people or situations pop up again to test you. If you have loose ends to tie up, I do advise doing so this month and throughout the rest of this year. Many Karmic patterns of emotional slavery are being walled off so you can experience true love and joy within. So, why not do this deliberately and completely? It's part of the veil lifting. This does not mean karma will no longer exist. It means we can now see the truth in the patterns and choose to rise above those old worn-out beliefs and feelings.
Old souls that you've been separated from, who fell away, to do their own lives, lessons, and healing may now return back into your life if they are a vibrational match to you now. New souls who match your frequency will enter into your life to help you further your soul missions. They might even stay. What a magnificent second chance at life. Wouldn't you say?
<3 Peace, Lori <3

I hear many questions from you along these lines, "if I allow myself to feel all the negative feelings from my past (lives) that have hurt me or made me feel stuck, won't I be lowering my vibration?"
Here's my take on it. Many of you hear, from the law of attraction community, messages to stay positive and keep your thoughts high! I think this talk creates the fear of doing things wrong when we are feeling sub-par. It creates the worry that if you ever have a negative thought that what you want won't materialize or be actualized. I think this is B.S. Nothing will keep you stuck longer than the act of worry caused by fear!
We are obviously striving to raise our vibrational frequencies so that we can be naturally more joyous, happy, and in love. It is unrealistic to think you can keep your thoughts high ALL THE TIME. We are here on Earth to experience her polarities: light/dark, love/fear, left/right, above/below, hard/soft, etc. so that we can appreciate and express gratitude for the love, the light, the joy, the happiness, those days when everything seems to flow in our favor.
We are here to learn how to merge these polarities.
Do not allow yourself to deny those parts of yourself. As an empath, it's painful to watch someone smile when they are hurting, to hear someone say they are doing great when you know they are struggling inside. To watch someone act in martyrdom. This is not authentic. We would not be given the ability to cry if we weren't meant to do that. We have not been given a voice if we weren't meant to communicate our soul truth at any given time. Giving yourself permission to express your pain ultimately removes the debris you've held on to and once it clears, you will be given clarity in your life like never before! It brings you back in to balance. It helps you to open your heart and to create from that positive space.
When I have given myself permission to FEEL, to release and purge, I've found levels of forgiveness, of myself and others who have hurt me, in ways I never thought I could. The result? True compassion for myself and others, a lightness, a spring-in-my-step.
Going deeper, once that level of compassion is realized, you can find the compassion for others and yourself when your perceptual filters begin to fall away and you realize how you have hurt them. This expanded perception allows you to see and to feel and to cry for the others you have wounded, perhaps without even knowing you had wounded them in the past. This gives you the opportunity for complete and ultimate forgiveness, thus, you have merged the polarities and you have risen to a higher vibrational frequency. You UNDERSTAND.
Still walking with you as we see the light on the other side emerging.
Peace out, Lori <3
