There is a common ground that humanity shares. Of course there are many, for as a human collective we share countless common grounds. but during this phase of the spiral, where it seems like there are literally different species evolving within what we call the homosapien species of Human Being, it feels vital to bring forth another level of ever evolving awareness to this one specific common ground, which tends to be overlooked and is attempted to be covered up by varying degrees of keenly crafted egoic protective layers. Yes, indeed, it feels time to allow this sacred common ground to surface more fully. It feels to be the time to invite it into the center of this very phase of the spiral, with arms and hearts wide open, this common ground of trauma we all stand upon.
This life on planet Earth takes place in a galaxy that is spiral. There are infinite galaxies in the Universe, all of varying pattern configurations, but this one where we find ourselves to be incarnated in, happens to be a spiraling one. This scientific fact does seems quite significant in our process of evolution here on this beautiful planet, which orbits the magnificent sun of this miraculous spiraling galaxy. You may have noticed in your time spent here thus far, how events have a tendency to repeat themselves in a spiral-like pattern akin to a rhythmic revisiting. Common themes can be traced through history – collectively, ancestrally and individually. Events reimagine themselves in unendingly creative ways, incessantly reaching out to be met by an increasingly refined nuanced point of awakened awareness along the way. At a point of the spiral when this collective awareness is singing out a crescendoing anthem yearning to awaken, it feels like an auspicious time to invite in our common ground of shared trauma in a whole new way. It feels time to begin to meet with honed clarity, our individual trauma as a collectively common ground that we all humans embody, as One Body.
Here I must pause with a breath, for the sacredness and profundity of this invitation is unmistakable.
Over the last 4 years, since Omar’s metamorphisis of embodied Essence through the dissolution of his magnificent form (you can read more about this in the beginning chapter posts of this blog), his Essence continues to permeate among and within us as an Omnipresent Amplified Field of Awake Awareness entraining the whole Herd and fully available to whomever sincerely desires to tap in. This alchemy continues to create miracles seemingly impossible to put into words. I am awed by these miracles abundantly occuring and astonishingly unfolding in ways I could never have envisioned, but have always tried to consciously make room for. One of these miracles has been the organic birthing of the herd and my weekly offerings via Zoom, which we give the name “Animal and Nature Assisted Awakening Gatherings.” During these gatherings the Herd of Light, and I, invite in and tap into a unified co-created field of Nature Consciousness. Kindreds gather from all over the world join in and co-create as One Herd and as One Heart in this Amplified Field of Awakening Awareness. It is the catalyst of this co-created Field of Amplified Awareness that our True Nature wakes up in most miraculous ways.
I would like to share with you this transmission which energetically flowed through from Taz, just last Sunday, right before our Gathering, as I sat out with the herd tuning in.
“The Peace I Now embody does not waver when faced with being moved around here and there by the herd. I tried the commonly tread path of power and have learned and can finally rest in the Truth that Peace is Power. I met the stored energy of trauma in my body with the simple steady Light of silent amplified Awareness – and trauma self liberated. What I discovered was that the energy that was freed is Peace. And now, the knee jerk response of my body no longer dictates my nervous system. And Peace prevails. This Peace is not fragile. It is not disturbed by what appears as dominant intentions from my herdmates, because this Peace that’s been liberated is now super charged by trauma’s Self Liberation. Peace has claimed me as its own. And yes, just so you know, there are moments I do express anger. Anger can serve to clear space, allowing this Peace to renew and to re-reveal its omnipresence as the indwelling Supreme field that I Am. This Peace is now my go to. This who I Am is my go to. I thought it had been stolen from me, but I Am was only covered by louder incoherent frequencies of stored trauma Now set free… amplifying who I AM, who I always have been, and who I forever shall Be -Powerful Peace.”
This transmission is so profoundly powerful and meaningful to me as Taz’s process is acutely similar to that which I too have undergone and continue to undergo. The story line of Taz’s timeline of accumulated trauma, and my own, do not feel important here, though there are times when speaking these stories has felt vital to support Awareness’ fullest blossoming. But, here and Now I simply wish to highlight that trauma was indeed stored in Taz’s sensitive nervous system, in the very fibers of her muscles, in the cells of her body, and in the energetic imprints of her subtle body. And allowing these traumatic imprints to unconsciously take up space without directly inviting them to be seen by her own awake awareness, and without offering her the intentional Witnenssing Presence of the herd and I, felt inharmonious to the deepest soul intention of why we had all come together as co-travelers in this spiritual journey.
Understanding the unseen energy field co-created and honed by The Herd of Light and I over the years, and living in this experimental unitive Field of Awakening, has allowed me to understand the Truth of all human beings as One Herd and as One Heart. In this deeper understanding it has become clear that we all stand upon the hallowed common ground of trauma. It also is clear that the degree to which this trauma is allowed to be fully seen and held in the embrace of a simple glance of awareness is directly proportional to the degree to which we pass on trauma and pain to our herdmates. The herdmates I am speaking of are all the human and the more-than-human herdmates that comprise this One Heart.
The more-than-human world of all of Nature is offering us the entraining amplification of our innate superpower, which is the innate superpower of every phenomena here in this spiraling Galaxy. That super power is Self Liberation. Truly with each breath, we inter-breathe in this web of interbeing, a contagion of the simplicity of Awareness’ ability to fully see and meet and thereby to self liberate the energetic shackles, alchemizing them into super charged Awake Awareness for all. This Alchemy of self liberated trauma is passed on effortlessly, breaking the spiraling pattern of re-traumatization and all of its biproducts.
A straight forward example of this manifested last night. It was the first time in the 11 years of our horse-human dance that Yoshi showed acute symptoms of colic, which is a common ailment and the most common cause of death in the equine world. Yoshi unexpectedly lay down in a trancelike state breathing heavily right before sundown. I had just finished a 2 hour zoom session with someone who is working with me on cultivating my body language communication awareness with Khalil. Khalil and I are at a phase where there is disharmony between us and he has much frustration in his body when interacting with me, as do I, with him. During the 2 hour call, I found myself hit by acute indigestion after having overeaten a much too delicious homemade Indian dish cooked by my Beloved Partner, Alani. Having eaten three servings in response to having waited too long to eat in the first place, my body was out of balance and my digestion had backed up and seemingly halted. Because I have a certain modus operandi of often ignoring and overriding my phsyical needs, I ignored the pain and instead focused in on Khalil and our session. It was a dramatically transformative session ending with my digestive pain and Khalil’s frustration subsiding. That is when Yoshi went down with colic. I went into a healing zone with Yoshi, administered a pain relieving medicine which soon gave her relief as her eyeballs were rolling back into her head with pain. Alani offered her an energy healing, I gave Reiki, a friend offered long distance support and we walked Yoshi rhythmically around the corral, all aiding her GI tract in rebalancing within an hour or so. But upon reflection, what if I had offered my physical pain a glimpse of awake awareness instead of ignoring it and pretending it did not exist? Given the energetic intimacy of Yoshi and I, she has spend hours in deep healing states with me over this past decade and even has given me an equine version of what I would imagine is the Hawaiian Healing Art of Lomi-Lomi countless times, but that is for another blog post. Given this intimate unified energetic dance we dance, it does not feel farfetched to see how the pain I ignored and tried to keep unconscious was picked up by this open translucent embodied Being, Yoshi, to be healed and made conscious. In this direct and fresh experience I can not help but view this as one very intimate, albeit subtle, way that unconscious pain and trauma is passed on through the One Heart here on this ever spiraling planet. I am left feeling a deeper love and understanding of the raw material of our shared common ground of pain and trauma and a clearer and more direct awe at the super charged consciousness we also directly share when this trauma is allowed to self liberate. I Now breathe an amplified breath of a deeply embodied hope for us all, as One Herd, as One Heart that we are in Truth spiraling together with all of life as co-travelers on this profoundly sacred spiritual journey of Self Liberation. The unveiling of our True Nature is inevitable, for it is the common groundless ground we all stand upon.
