Reflecting between the LINES
By Lori Lines
Life on Earth is shaking everything down and shifting. Big time. Why? Because we are shifting individually. Individual shifts ripple out to shift the collective. One thing I've become very clear about is that my intention, through my work, is to help people connect within, to their innermost selves. Their soul. Their true hearts desire. WHO THEY ARE. To inspire others to live from that place, within themselves, that is true and authentic, which is the marriage between the heart and the head.
Just as I have been learning to do all my life, this is the path I am walking, which is unfolding before me in each moment, from the soul rather than attempting to force life from a wounded and fearful place. It is beautiful and intense and I wouldn't change my path for the world because this is why I'm here: To empower other people to do the same.
Those who come to me looking for the more mundane answers which keep one stuck in old patterns and the past such as, "will she come back to me and will we ultimately be together?" "When will my career take off?" "Who is my soulmate?" "Should I be with this one or that one?" "Will my marriage last?" "When will I have children?" And, the proverbial, "What's the lottery numbers?" It's very challenging for an AWAKENED psychic to support this thinking in their work. Sure, I can answer some of these questions, and I will be happy to do so but most who have these sort of questions have not yet awakened to who they really are.
Many of you have heard me say, "You are the one you are looking for." YOU ARE THE ONE and, if you remember nothing else, remember this: The love from another comes in harmony with the love that you realize you are. It's a question of how committed are you to your own path? How committed are you to being who you really are? My mission, who I really am, is to want for you to know who you really are, and that is love. You are LOVE. And, the sooner you recognize this, the better off you will BE. THAT comes first. So, learn to BE with yourself in any moment, being love, being willing to dig deep within yourself and live in your complete surrender, faith and truth, in the moment.
So, in these times, I want to convey to you that you have no control over outward circumstances, you cannot force anything and, let me tell you, if you think you are in control you are living an illusion. Destiny has its own unfolding and where you can exert your will is how you choose to perceive it and move through it. How you perceive what is in front of you will make all the difference in your life. Again, I will ask, how committed are you to being who you are in this moment? How committed are you to making the best of right where you are, right now? Also, if you KNOW something in your heart, do not allow someone else to talk you out of what's in your heart. Just let it be, do not hold onto it too tightly, but know it's there for a reason. You cannot control cycles of destiny but you can choose who and how to be during these times.
There have been cycles of shedding and purging for most of us. There are layers to this, in and of itself. For those of you who are carrying predominantly masculine energy (we all carry feminine and masculine energy within ourselves) and you are wanting that great love, you must find that love within yourself. Any need for control and any need to rationalize things...the shift that's happening for the masculine energy dominating the planet and suppressing the heart, emotions and the soul, are bigger than the mind can ever comprehend - which is extraordinary and beautiful and, well, messy.
The mind must become the servant of the heart and that means letting go of control. Surrender this cycle and just enjoy the ride by staying present within it. You do not have to KNOW what is going to happen and stand in defensive alert. These warlike energies have been within you for eons (many past lives) and you are now being called to put down those defenses. Part of the shedding for the masculine that wants to "figure out the heart with the mind" is now happening in the collective. Your hearts are asking to lead you through the veil of the unknown. It is understandable to want safety in the attempt to understand things, yet, a greater experience in love is on the other side of surrender.
What I see in this is the collective masculine saying, "OK, the way I've been doing life in the past no longer works so I'm going to do this" to one degree or another.
For eons, the masculine and the feminine have been at odds with one another, collectively. Our society has supported this and actually makes tons of money from the perpetuation of this paradigm. Now, the masculine is being called to merge with his feminine, within himself, so as to unionize with the collective feminine. His masculinity has a very important role to the feminine (as so does she to him). And, for those of you asking, this is not going to take away your manhood. It will help you be stronger within your SELF! Because, let's face it, you guys have been in identity crisis for a long time. When we let go of the need to control and learn to understand that which is greater than us (call it God, the Universe, the Divine, etc.) then we can enter into service of THE GREAT LOVE. That which is bigger than us. It's an expansion that's happening that merges us with the great love by moving into our individual hearts.
A lot of times, we want the comfort of knowing what's going to happen. Especially if we have felt our hearts have been broken, we have attempted to protect ourselves from feeling like we've had swords through our hearts. This journey is asking us to pull the swords out of our hearts and to allow our hearts to bleed. The loss of blood allows room for the light. There is no way out but through this journey. If you feel the call from your heart, from something bigger than you are, then you have to commit to the heart. Should pain come, let it be and allow the heart to break open instead of attempting to patch it together with your distractions. When we resist and struggle, in this way, we just bring on more pain within ourselves. If you have swords in your heart, you are encouraged to take those swords out, and just go through the experience because it is in the experience that you will heal and become much stronger in love and more of who you really are. Your foundation will become more solidly based. When we do not allow this experience, we are distracting ourselves from who we are and our experience of true love.
So, for both the masculine and the feminine, where is your integrity? Do you choose to stand in your inner knowing? Do you choose to defend your experience and your knowledge of love? Or, do you choose to compromise? You are asked to really examine, whether you are being fair in all ways especially to yourself. There are many of you out there who, partly because you're trying to figure things out with your mind and things may or may not be working out for you and those you love, are cautioned to check in with your integrity. You are being strongly encouraged to check in with what you really know and what you really believe and to only have the purest intentions in terms of who you are with. If your heart knows one thing and you are choosing to be with someone else, it's not fair to anyone and it erodes the psyche. It delays personal growth and your own happiness. One must have the patience to allow the heart to lead and to ride out the dilemma while feeling out your integrity. The heart, the knowing within, will get you where you want to go. We are encouraged to get courageous enough to move into radical honesty. What is your heart telling you?
The harmonizing with the masculine and the feminine is the realization that the broken heart opening is the path to freedom. Allowing the heart to break open and to allow yourself to heal is the commitment to the faith that you are on the path to BEING THE LOVE HERE ON EARTH. We cannot run from something that we think may break our hearts, for the willingness to risk heartbreak is the willingness to be alive and to feel deeply and to be opened more powerfully to a stronger lasting love. Needing to know the exact map of the journey, is where we get into trouble. Not knowing and being in the now allows life to open us up to all we desire and it comes in incredible and remarkable ways.
The Divine is shaking everything up. We need to be looking at how we have operated in the past and to understand how it will no longer work. We are seeing how we've been lying to ourselves. So the question begs, what are you going to do now?
The commitment to understanding who you are, through the path of love, is the key to creating a new world where we all are supported and nurtured in an authentic way. It's called Unity.
By allowing our need to control (our egos) to die and moving into the unknown, surrendering to the path of the heart, is creating something beautiful. It already is.
May peace, love, and blessings be with you on your journey to oneness.
