Energy Shifts, Energy Shifts I

How often have you bought into the illusion of certainty and safety in your world?

Though at first, it may give you a certain degree of comfort, it soon becomes a prison from which there is no escape.

The paradox of being an evolving human is that you crave security while coming alive with risk. It is in your DNA ‘to boldly go where no man has gone before.' The species would not have survived if the yearning to experience more were not firmly entrenched at the cellular level.

Yet ‘being more' requires the letting go of what you know, of who you have been until this moment. It demands the relinquishing of safety nets. It begs to break the rules. And still, you want to hear a soothing voice that guarantees you will remain intact. This tightrope of trust must be navigated to fully engage life and activate your burgeoning potential.

Relentless trust is accessed from your deep knowing, not your intellect. The inner resources nourish and sustain you as you dive beyond the edge of experience. However, in order to know with any kind of certainty, you must connect to your sensing and feeling nature. How can you do that if you are unwilling to surrender what you have acquired intellectually? The magic, the discovery, the miracles are never birthed from the intellect, they arise outside of the framework of what you ‘know.'

Perhaps this quandary is a result of the disconnection from your true essence. Early on an experience may have occurred that propelled you into self-preservation separation. Maybe this capacity to feel and sense immensely was a burden and not a blessing.  Without even realizing it, little by little,  you hardened your heart, buried your brilliance, and disconnected from your true power source until one day you discovered there was nobody home!

The time is now to come home to your creative essence, your highly aware nature, your superconnective being. Open completely and partner with life.

Love comes with a knife,
not some shy question.
And not with fears for its reputation!

Love is a madman working his wild schemes,
tearing off his clothes, running through the mountains,
drinking poison and quietly choosing annihilation.

You've been walking the ocean's edge,
holding up your robes to keep them dry.

You must dive naked under, and deeper under,
a thousand times deeper and deeper under.

Love flows down, love flows down.

The ground submits to the sky and
suffers what comes down, love flows.

Tell me, is the earth worse for giving in like that?
Don't put blankets over the drum.
Open completely.

  1. Oh, Adela….thank you so much for not only
    your wonderful words (power-full!), but for
    also sharing that delicious Rumi poem with
    the diving deeper images. My energy generally
    focuses on soaring and “upness” and now I’m
    exploring depths and “underness” …related to
    your scuba diving vs. snorkeling reference
    earlier. So here’s to UP, DOWN AND ALL AROUND!

    Love and hugs to you and our tribe,

  2. Thanks John. Superman (“It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Super Expansion”), Mighty Mouse and we can remember Underdog too. “There’s no need to fear, Underdog is here!” When fear surfaces or lurks deep within, we could think of a new mantra: “there’s no need to fear, 9 a.m. is here.” This may help summon the energy and support of the 9am CES (Conscious Energy Shift) group! I think I’ll try out all the new “mantras!”

  3. Experience after this morning’s shift I’m ascribing to being with everyone:
    Went to farmer’s market to buy apples so I could make applesauce. Farmer w/ apples not there. Said, “Oh well, won’t make applesauce.”
    Continued on w/ errands and on return home stopped at small market across street and saw owner and asked her about how the mix of apples I selected would work. She said, “Farmer brought some that don’t look good enough to put on shelves. I’ll give them to you.”
    So the energy openness and continuum and impossibilities flow. All good, even when at first seems as if it is not.
    BTW, the service mark for my former biz was “Specializing in the Impossible.”

  4. Energy Shift – Day 13 – Open Completely

    Today’s session spoke to me about possibility, about honor and about energy itself.

    Adela and her incredible abilities to get into our souls has been remarkable. Britt made me laugh when she talked about our “Super” connectivity. She is right! We can master our lives when we energize together, connect as one and be the one for ourselves and each other. Nothing is impossible. It is up to us to be the next spark for our dynamic and spontaneous creativity. Oh Yea – let’s make the sparks fly!

    Britt’s superman analogy also made me think of another fictional character that became vivid in my mind during the call. You might laugh at this one and some of you may not even know this cartoon character. I kept thinking of “Mighty Mouse”, one of my childhood favorite cartoons. Mighty Mouse always came to the rescue with a great line: “Here I come to save the day, Mighty Mouse is on the way!” . I think this line could be said differently today: “Here WE come to save the day, AR’s Tribe are on their way” – Go Tribe!

    Honor who I am
    Honor who you are
    Honor who we are
    Honor our friends, our family and all who are close to us
    Honor our enemies
    Honor the past
    Honor the present
    Honor the future
    Honor the unknown

    ENERGY: Being reminded that energy has been around since the beginning of time and words have only been around for about 10,000 years was so timely to reflect upon. Energy is ALL! We are energy! We belong! Just be yourself, energize yourself and realize how much you impact others in our world. Breathe, relax & expand throughout your day!

    Blessings to one and all.


    1. John…loved your Mighty Mouse reference
      and the way you updated it! Many thanks
      for your words and energy and the Honor
      tribute…a great reminder!

      What blesses One, blesses All,

  5. Rumi said, “Love flows down”…I literally physically felt the sensation as I read the words. I have been so concentrated of late on finding my own anwers in my own soul that I was in effect leaving out the Whole. Our connection is breathtaking..yours, mine, Sheila’s, Rumi’s. Adela, I thank God for you. To each in the circle, each unique snowflake, each unique snowangle…I Thank Goddess for you. We lift each other from the ordinary to the extaordinary.

  6. Adela – Wow, I just logged on to read about today’s energy shift and it fits exactly with the dream I had last night…exactly! Letting go of the things I knew and stepping into a new future.

    The last few days my intuition also guided me to revisit my past. I could see where I took a wrong turn. I discovered where I let go of a passion that I want to tap into again.

    I will carry that with me as I let go of many other things from my past.

    Thanks for the post. I wish my schedule allowed me to attend the calls in person. I appreciate the recaps on this blog. Thank you.


    1. Sandy,

      As you can see, you are ‘with us on the calls.’ Your intention and connection is all that is required. Awesome that you got a nudge to tap into a lost passion. Go for it, darling!

  7. How truth rings in this. We are disconnected, do believe in the stories and yet when we can surrender there is such freedom. I am really feeling this today and energetically been picking up on it. I
    The courage of taking a massive step beyond is daunting but here lies the power. Bless you Adela for bringing in the freedom! My paints and pen are longing to increase the shifting.

  8. Interesting, Adela, that I read this shortly after reading my friend Tomar Levine’s Tweets (http://www. twitter.com/tomarlevine) – “When I am scared my attention is narrow & fear fills my screen. When I focus on what I experience as sacred, my vision widens.” and in another Tweet, “Notice that ‘scared’ becomes “sacred” by just shifting one letter – the “c”. By shifting how I “see” my life I change my whole reality.”

    And your piece today is full of “Tweets”, so full of …. As I’m pondering which of them to to pull down here, without my glasses for a moment I saw my “so full” (of) as “soulful” and I guess that’s the essence of the message. The simply being.

    Would that letting go the years of tightropes on trust be so simple. You state: “Relentless trust is accessed from your deep knowing, not your intellect. The inner resources nourish and sustain you as you dive beyond the edge of experience.”

    I guess, for me, this is the beauty of what the camera provides, the access to my inner being when I use it (the camera) to simply record, then appreciate on many levels, that to which I instinctively respond.

    You go on to say, “How can you do that if you are unwilling to surrender what you have acquired intellectually? The magic, the discovery, the miracles are never birthed from the intellect, they arise outside of the framework of what you ‘know.’”

    The “intellect”… all my learning, all the different facts, ideas, “to dos”… How do I let them go, in a world of words, when I’m in the midst of “marketing” a course, starting in 10 days (link in my signature) – one of the benefits of which I say is “Getting out of the box, using the camera”… ?

    I think today WILL BE some camera time. I have two new red onions with which to play. One has lots of shiny brilliant maroon.Perhaps a follow-up to my RED ONION STORY: Peeling Layers…. wants to come out.

    Thank you, my dear Adela, for providing this platform and for sharing your love and brilliance with us all and the world.

    1. Sheila,

      This felt so ‘soul-full, honest and pure.’ This letting go of what you know is the kicker, especially as we are moving around in the world with our goals and things that need ‘doing.’ Yet, being will deliver the how and refine the what.

      In letting go, inspiration occurs, divine downloads happen and trust is acquired. Trust is the big factor. Trust that you ‘really’ are a spark of the divine, trust that life conspires with you, trust that YOU have and are all you need, and then some.

      Thank you for the beautiful exploration and your willingness to be your edge, even when you don’t know ‘how.’

      Readers: Visit Sheila’s page to get more information about this course. I’ve been a subscriber of her newsletter Picture to Ponder for five years and her pictures and writing are an oasis of calm and clarity that will alter the way you see yourself and your world.

      1. Thank you so much, Adela, for your acknowledgment and affirming words, plus….

        “…trust that YOU have and are all you need, and then some.” Would that each of us remember this in the sea of information outside of us that surrounds us, tugs at us. Hmmm. Is that remnant of “victim” kicking in 🙂

        To a beautiful weekend. I sooooo appreciate that you are in my life. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
