I'd like to talk with you today about the magic and wonder of trees and why teach us so much. Ever since I was a child, I loved being around trees. I think it might have been my cousin who instilled this in me. I remember one summer day when he came to visit me saying something like "your street has no trees on it!" I never really thought of it before then and then suddenly I was always looking at the trees. I started to wonder why there were no trees on my street. As I grew older, I made sure that every place I lived was on a tree lined street or near a small forest.
It was around this time that I started to go down my spiritual path and I remember reading about how trees are sentient beings who we can connect with. I decided to put this to the test. Every time I went out into nature, I would say hello to them. I would put my hands on their bark and imagine myself becoming one with their infinite energy. "Each tree has its own unique vibration , its own energy!, " I thought, as I became very excited.
As I continued to develop my spiritual gift and abilities, I realized that I am very connected with the trees. I have spent lifetimes among the forests and recalled moments where I was a guardian or protector of the trees. I saw visions of me at the tops of the trees looking out for danger and feeling so at peace within their loving arms. Even today, when I go to the forest , I immediately feel at home as if its instilling some ancient memory of a place I know in my heart but cannot remember mentally.
Today, I went to the forest again and sat with the trees and just thought how it would be nice to share a reminder with you about what they teach us as humans. Trees have been on earth much longer than us and they have within their roots, indeed their DNA, the memories of the earth. Roots are not just used to pull up nutrients from the earth, but to pull wisdom and knowledge from deep within Gaia. Trees are indeed wise beings who never ask for much. They are perpetual givers. Of course they give us oxygen to breath, but their gifts, knowledge and wisdom are so much more.
Trees teach us to continue to grow no matter what is happening around us. That despite stormy weather or any perceived lack of resources we can still grow. Trees withstand the seasons. You may have seen trees growing on the side of a rock. Some trees, like Sequoias, are immune to fire. Some are skinny, some are enormous, yet all of them go with the flow. They sway with the gentle breeze and offer us a sign to let go. To surrender and bend with the wind not fight against it.
Trees have witnessed countless human wars, deforestation, fires, as well as many wonderful and courageous feats of man. Despite the fact that sometimes we have seen trees as a disposable resource , they have lived in cooperation with us. In fact, trees live in cooperation with all of nature. As said in the previous paragraphs, they give so much. Trees are homes for many insects, birds, rodents, plants, and reptiles. They gladly give of themselves for the betterment of the planet.
Trees offer us shade, shelter, wind, flower, and of course- food! Fruit, nuts, and teas. They cooperate with us and other trees like a grand network ; an internet if you will, but not a web of digital information. They operate from a web of spiritual connection.
So again, I want to remind you about the wisdom that Gaia, the forest, and all of nature has to offer. As we become more disconnected from each other as we become glued to our digital devices, let us come together and connect with each other the way the trees do. Let us all return to the harmony that was once within us, that is still within the hearts and cellular memory of each of us.
Remember the wisdom of the trees, dear one , and let it activate your spiritual heart. You have much to teach, much to learn, and much to remember. Today, instead of becoming disconnected- return to your roots . Surrender, and let the forest teach you.
It is most sincere prayer that this post has inspired you to reconnect and remember who you truly are. You are light, you are love, and you are never alone.! And so it is..
Dear Angel Friends and Unicorn Lovers : I am very excited to tell you about a few small updates and changes I will be making to Ascension Magic. I always receive my best inspirations out in nature. There is something about being out with the trees and the energy of the forest that feels like home. Anyway, as I was sitting there among the trees I got the idea of helping you to increase your intuition and psychic abilities. Each day I will post a psychic exercise to help you tap into your intuition and gain confidence with your natural born gifts. Everyone is born psychic. It is just a muscle that you have to work. Just like going to the gym, the more you work the muscle the stronger you will become. It will be exciting to see what different impressions you get when you post your comments on here. I want you to remember that psychic abilities are all about trust. It doesn't matter how silly or ridiculous you may think your impressions are , you just trust it and go. Doreen Virtue calls this the "blah" . This means that you just spit it out. Anything you think, feel, see, and know you just say it. You would be surprised on how seemingly unconnected or random thoughts or impressions relate to something. Just trust it, and don't second guess it. I hope you look forward to these each day. I will also be posting spiritual teachings of the day or week (haven't decided yet) This will be things such as how to increase abundance, gratitude, letting go, healing , ascension, sacred geometry and more. These will most likely also wind up on my radio shows. I am well aware that the Sunday shows have dwindled in the past few months. Please understand that they take a lot of time to plan and produce to truly make it informative and interesting. I am working on some great shows. If you know of any ideas , or if you have any guest speakers who would like to be on my show, please let me know. Are you excited ? Because I am....
Here is the first exercise. We are going to be working with your clairvoyance today. Of course, any other psychic impressions you receive are valid. Whether this is hearing, feeling, or just knowing. Just trust!
There are 3 objects hidden in the box that you see in the photo below. Your task is to tap into your intuition and use your psychic senses to figure out what those objects are. Write down any impressions you get. No matter how subtle. Whether it is a shape, a color, a word, a feeling.. ANYTHING!! Post your comments on this link and tomorrow I will reveal the contents for you. This will be fun, community gathering, and help you in fun ways. It will be interesting to see what you come up with. Don't worry if you get it wrong. It is more about your learning and growing. I want you to have what is called a "growth mindset" . I believe in you.
After seeing a friend of mine post about Free Hugs Day on Facebook, I decided to do my own free hugs day. I was specifically guided to go to the Whole Foods in Napa. Whole foods is a place with a lot of open-minded people and I knew that it was the right place to go. I was a little nervous to go by myself, as this was the first time I had ever done something like this, so I took my friend Alexander with me. We took our signs and stood right in front of Whole Foods. At first it was nerve-racking, especially when the police drove by to see what the heck we were doing, but once the hugs started rolling in my whole energy shifted. The response was overwhelmingly positive. People from all walks of life, all ages, all races, sexes, and religions came up to give us a hug. The most rewarding this about this was hearing how many people said "Thank you boys for doing this, this was so needed and it made my day."
There was one particular person I will never forget. Him and his daughter came up riding on bikes, and he mentioned how his relationship with his wife was very rocky and they were having a difficult time. He was in a very dark place. He said that just coming here and hugging us gave him hope in humanity and hope that things would be alright. He practically had tears in his eyes and he was very inspired by what we were doing.
Another young girl, about 7 years old, couldn't stop hugging me and thought this was the coolest thing ever. She said "I want to have my own hug day soon." She came back for hugs about 3 or 4 times and as she drive away on her bike she said "I'll see you soon, ok?"
Unfortunately, not every one was receptive to the Free Hugs. Many people thought that we were selling something or wanted something in return. I guess it is hard for people to believe that people will give for free and not want something back. A few people thought we were there to hook up with women? That's an odd thing to think about. I mean there are better ways to pick up women, but in any event I AM GAY! (Haha) Some people said that they would hug us if we were women. Apparently for some people it is too macho to hug another guy. However most people (including guys) were very receptive and loved spreading the positive energy.
If you haven't done a free hugs day of your own, I highly recommend it. There is research to show that hugs will release endorphins and seratonin in your brain. I can tell you from experience that this is true and it is a wonderful thing. There is something about the human touch coming from the heart and feeling that heart to heart connection with another human being that is healing. I went from feeling nervous at the beginning to feeling an overwhelming sense of love and and joy. I was jumping up and singing and dancing by the end of it. The energy that we were putting out was like a pulse of light that overshadowed any lower energies that might be around that area. We actually attracted more light and positive energy to us and paved the way. Not only were we healing other people, but we were healing ourselves.
The most important lesson I learned today is how to react when someone isn't receptive to my positive energy. Basically you love them anyways! There were some people that clearly needed love and hugs but did not want to open up to receiving. I could have directed their negativity back at them, but instead I chose the high road and sent them love and positivity anyways. We must learn how to stay centered in our light and love. The moment I had any inkling of negative energy creep back in, I DELETED it right out of my mind. NOPE.. NOT FOR ME!
I hope to do this on a regular basis and maybe make this some type of movement in my area. I know that this inspired people. So much so, that one particular person I met started a facebook group called "Signs for Love" Her idea is for us to go out and hold up any kind of signs (not just ones for hugs) and to spread positive energy and light into the world. Are you up for the challenge? I hope to see your blog post soon.
Hello Ascending beings of infinite light. I’m so grateful to be speaking with you today and to have you as friends during my journey. I know I haven’t posted in a while as I have been busy doing so many things. My radio show has started to flourish and I have been engaged in a major detox. I’m clearing clutter like you wouldn’t believe. I threw away 3 full garbage bags of stuff and I’m still going (Just like the energizer bunny – remember that?) I have also been drinking some detox tea and allowing myself to open up more to hear the angelic wisdom of my higher self. I say this because if you are guided to do a detox – Now is a wonderful time to do so.
I’ve been guided by the angels to pull a card for you today. The card that I pulled is from Doreen Virtue’s “The Messages from your Angels” deck. By the way, if you would like to purchase any of the decks of cards that I use on this site they are around 15-20 dollars and you can easily find them on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. A good starter deck is the deck entitled “Healing with the Angels.” I also feel guided to do an Angel Tarot class for those who are interested in learning how to work with these energies. This will be in the next few months. More details about this in the future.
So the card of the day is “Maya” and the message is all about schooling and education. This is really quite interesting actually because if you follow the news at all you might be hearing about how the President of the US (Obama) is suggesting free community college. Quite an interesting thought! I don’t want to get into politics, but I find it interesting that this card comes up at this time.
What this card really is referring to is how life on planet Earth is in some way a school. We are all teachers to each other. All of the “bad experiences” we have are really just lessons for us on our road to ascending and becoming a master. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to keep repeating the same lesson over and over and over again. Once you have mastered it, you can move on. It requires you to be centered and being open in a space of forgiveness - Both forgiveness of yourself and others, and not holding on to icky stuff (Hence the DETOX).
The card also talks about getting the education you need to move on the path. Maybe it’s time to take that meditation course, or fitness class, or read that book you have been guided to read. If you’re like me you have a lot of books. Remember that if you don’t let go of books you haven’t read in at least the past 3 years, you can’t make room for new ideas to come in. Try donating those books to the library if you can. Ask the Angels to assist you with letting go. Arch Angel Michael will help you to cut chords and attachments to old clutter and things and people that don’t serve you. While this may sound silly, imagine him having a gigantic vacuum cleaner that sucks up all of the old stuff and transmutes it into a different frequency and cleans it out of your life, LITERALLY. Out with the old and in with the new.
So, final message: We are all going through major changes. Continue to move forward and don’t be afraid to TAKE ACTION. Someone out there is being guided to read a particular book. DO IT! Excuses are just ways for your ego to keep you trapped into old ways of thinking. Honor each other’s paths because we all learn in different ways and at different times. Listen to your guidance and know that you are always loved.
Is to love and be loved in return. As we begin 2015, let's make it a point to accept people exactly as they are and love them no matter what is going on. Isn't that what you would want for yourself? We can sometimes make the mistake of trying to change people or we might even get upset when people don't act how we would like them to in any particular situation. That is the ego taking over folks! Don't let it win. Stay centered in your heart and with love. Honor each person's path and know that if you send out love, love will return to you. We are after all - ONE. Honor the oneness in each other. Happy New Year. Lots of love.-Ron
