Thanks for your patience as I have been traveling across Europe, walking the Camino de Santigo, visiting with friends in Spain and Germany, hosting an event near Amsterdam, meeting with clients, and buying and selling houses - all things I will catch you up on below. But first - as always - a story...
The Indian Paint Brush has always been my flower. It is part of a genus (family) of species, which derive nourishment from the roots of other plants. For this reason, the plants cannot be cultivated (grown) properly within the confines of a garden.
In the scientific community, plants that derive nourishment from other plants are deemed parasitic. Yet, I don't like the word parasite. How about we say instead: to maintain their vitality, Indian Paint Brush flowers must grow in the wild, something I can relate to, AND they must be nourished by their environment.
I have always loved the delicate tubular shape of the Indian Paint Brush and its brightly colored ends, lending the appearance they have been dipped in a pot of brightly colored paint. When I was young, I purchased a packet of Indian Paint Brush seeds, not knowing they could not grow in a pot alone. They had to be wild (free) AND they needed the nourishment of plant community to thrive (supported).
It's a classic paradox for all of us choosing the conscious life. It's the mix between being sovereign/ self-sufficient/ independent, which is so much easier when alone, AND the deepest of human desires - the desire to connect/ be seen/ enjoy our humanity.
The paradox is not so different in the embodied enlightenment experience, or TRIPLE E, in which we are choosing to align and combine as ONE - our HUMANITY with our DIVINITY or MASTERY. I talk about this at length first video of my Soul Sense Series, which is now running on my Patreon page. The first video is free for you HERE. If you feel called to join us on Patreon, we only ask for $1 per month to help fund the administrative costs.
In the moment I realized the Indian Paint Brush seeds would not grow in the confines of a pot, teenage me reveled in the potentials - the knowingness - I would be free - one day to roam across the planet - and I have for years - yet this trip was different.
My sweetheart and I walked the Camino de Santiago for two weeks (pictures below). As sovereign beings, we relied on the KINDNESS of strangers to help us along this unfamiliar territory. In the absence of competition and technology, I was blown away by the undiluted kindness and generosity of spirit pouring from the fellow walkers, called pilgrims. Kindness, too, is a soul or master's sense, I will cover in my video series.
I reveled in the simplicity of living out of a backpack. The days consisted of walking and interacting with nature, being alone with nature when you felt like it, communing with your fellow pilgrims when it felt expansive, and sharing food, beverage, and a few stories in the evening - a uniquely human experience - one I will miss when I leave this planet.
I thought I might shudder at sharing a room with so many people each night in the Albergues (hostels). Instead, I dined on community, knowing that all too soon I would be back to my alone time whenever I desired it again. I'm finding this thing called a sense of BALANCE, one where you do what feels good when it feels good and change your situation when it doesn't. It's really that simple.
Then it was off the Munich, Germany to meet up with the friends I have made through my involvement with the Crimson Circle. All unique creator beings, we came together in a lush, sovereignly supportive (no energetic feeding) forest - fertile for creativity and allowing my paint brush petals to bloom. It was grand beyond words.
Speaking of which, one of those friends, Nazar, recently wrote an article on his creation, the Masters' Tent. It is his and my belief the journey is personal, not lonely. It is the first article featured in my Co-Creator Blog Series, which will allow others to share their New Energy Creations with all of you. If you are a fellow conscious traveler, don't miss out on Nazar’s creation.
Next, I was off to the Netherlands to attend a Masters Hub barbecue with even more friends. The next day I was blessed to have the opportunity to share the work of Sar'h, Master M, and my human self in a day of expansion and discussion of what it means to know you are God, also...or as Yeshua put it, "the kingdom is within." It was entirely new and exciting for us all - the strict roles of teacher vs. student thrown to wayside in the forest of creation. There’s more on the EVENTS page and a video highlight of the event will be in the next newsletter.
This wild flower was so pleased to have found such an organic, fluid spot for a New Energy Creator event at the Masters Hub. There was no stage. Participants were not confined to their chairs in neat little rows. The circle was open for all to play, express, and create - for we are the Masters we've been seeking all along.
As you can see, everything these days seems to go back to allowing myself to BE WILD, to be in a nurturing environment without walls, rules, or controls in place. And it did not change when I got back to Colorado.
When I returned, more and more tiny boxes (suburban, mass-produced houses) had popped up, blocking my mountain views. My home - once a sanctuary - is now a garden plot among a sea of identical garden plots. My seeds cannot grow and thrive here. There are too many walls - literal and figurative - here in Colorado for me to thrive. I love and honor my time here, but when the soul calls for change, I always listen without delay.
The GRAND news is I created an opportunity to buy a piece of land in the Los Padres National forest in California (near surf!!!). I'm a few last steps away from moving into the forest life, creating the CENTER OF BEING (more to come), and deep into the journey with 50 masters choosing embodied enlightenment on the Patreon page.
Together, we have created a sovereign, supportive, private, and safe community on PATREON. As always, when you let go of control, the perfect people show up to play with you and each other in the wild, in the forests of creation. I am blown away by the expansion of the conversations taking place there and beyond grateful for the energetic support that keeps this website running and my books published.
Additionally, make sure you check out the updated SERVICES and TEAM pages. Master M is hot on a roll in his support of those teetering on the tip of enlightenment. In the last three months, I too have hit my stride in connecting deeply with our soul session/ dream walk clients, who are really cherished friends from many lifetimes. I have a few session spaces left in July and the first two weeks of August, before I need to break for the move.
If you ever need a reminder of your RADIANCE, shoot me a note. I AM HERE. WE ARE HERE. There's no reason you cannot be sovereign AND supported. There’s no reason you cannot be wild AND nourished by your community, like the Indian Paint Brush.
Speaking of community, check out this chat I had with a fellow master friend, Alice, on COMMUNICATION as a sense, or a way of perceiving reality. It was so fun to film. If you like the videos, please subscribe to us on YouTube.
With love & gratitude,
Lauren, Sar'h & Master M
