Dear Ones ~
Let me talk for a minute about death.
We are in the time of death and renewal. A new year is dawning as 2016 sets.
I'd like to invite you to view this process of beginnings and endings in a spiral pattern, rather than a linear road. Just consider the cycles of Nature!
First let's talk about literal biological death:
Death comes when your form is ready to be "taken off" and there is pressure from the next form to be born. Death is literally the threshold or gateway - THE MOMENT - of release/birth. These moments are always an emotional experience for the living organism, as the ego attached to the organism believes it's facing permanent annihilation. Yet, they are always moments of orgasmic bliss for the Soul! Change, of course, is inevitable, for every person and every Soul, whether it's feared or welcomed.
Every experience of transcendence, growth, integration and evolution is Bliss for the Soul.
To view the Earthly experience of the "birth - life - death - transformation - rebirth" process from a
Soul's perspective, you would understand it actually as:
1. You are existing in the spiritual realm, then
2. you choose to incorporate on Earth (choice to "take on the body")
3. you live a full and rich experience married to a carbon-based electro-magnetic body (what an incredible intimacy!)
4. the body begins to atrophy and can't hold your spirit any longer, so the spirit un-corporates, or de-corporates, (takes off the body)
5. and you re-enter/return to spiritual realm.
At this point the Soul integrates all the lessons and wisdoms from that experience of form and "awakens even more" and raises vibration even higher.
Now let's look at this same process within your life in a body - for as you experience greater cycles, they are mirrored in smaller ways throughout your life. This is the holographic Universe!
If you look at your life in terms of chapters in a great book:
-The book is the journey of your Soul.
-The chapters are lifetimes you've incorporated.
-Between every chapter is an intermission of time spent in the spiritual realm.
-Within each chapter there are multiple "parts" which vary in number, these are your major life-transitions within each life.
So just as your Soul feels a pressure to release the body and move on into a new chapter (lifetime), your Soul is also guiding you to move onto a new part of your life, or lifestyle, when your old ways begin to hold you back. "It's time to turn over a new leaf". "I'm starting from a blank slate". "I'm ready to start a new life". These are all comments people say when they can feel the call to rebirth themselves and release the old.
Every time you "shed a skin", like a snake shedding her old skin to meet the world with newness, your Soul experiences this as bliss and gives you support and energy to make this shift.
A job or career change. A primary relationship ends or begins. Becoming a parent. Beginning or leaving an educational program. Changing your eating and/or exercise habits. Moving to a new location.
The longer you hold onto an old skin, afraid to change, which as I've said earlier is the ego's fear of annihilation or losing control, the more things won't go smoothly in your life. The more suffering you create for yourself. The "sicker" you become, because you are fighting against your organic growth process. This "fighting the flow" can change the course of your life and creates the opposite of bliss. It creates stagnancy, depression, helpless feelings, a sense of having settled. It can anchor in these density patterns that then takes another lifetime(s) to clear.
To renew, refresh and open to the world with new eyes, ears, heart, mind and willingness, is to be in harmony with nature and cosmos!
When you swim with the current of the river you can rest and be carried or you can swim and collaborate with the current for speed.
When you swim against the current, you exhaust yourself quickly, waste lots of energy, and your eyes are constantly looking into the past.
I would like to invite all who read this to consider what this setting sun on 2016 means to you and your current life. What is setting in your life? What needs to shift so you can go with the flow of the river?
If 2017 was the year for you to be carried in the current of your blissful life, how many orgasms are you willing to give your Soul this year?? That's a nice way to think of it!
How will you set yourself up for success?
What are your support systems?
Thank you for sitting with these words and letting them support you in whatever way is appropriate in your life.
With Ultimate Love,
Great Mother Presence

Great Mother Speaks::
Many of you believe that being a Hero or Savior is noble, yet if you are still reacting to the world from this identity, then you are still very much entrenched in the Trauma Triangle.
The Savior or Hero has two main shadow behaviors:
1. She takes on responsibility for clearing other's karma, to relieve their suffering. This often results in the savior becoming ill or imbalanced in some way, as they try to metabolize the spiritual lessons of others.
2. She is addicted to being good and noble, therefore glorifying only one expression of the psyche, creating a narrow human experience. Often the savior judges others for not being saviors too - this shadow aspect is Arrogance.
The Savior needs Victims to save, and this is her attachment/addiction. If she isn't saving people, she feels worthless. Saving people gives her an important place in society - according to her - so even if she's not valued outrightly by society, she may be self-righteous in her viewpoint.
The Savior needs to have a nemesis. This is also an attachment/addiction. She will always be pointing a finger at someone who is identified as a Perpetrator. To maintain her savior role, and thus glorified position in society, the savior must "win" or "conquer" the Perpetrator. Otherwise, if the Perpetrator triumphs over her, the savior will dissolve in low self-worth, and the Victim Consciousness will take her over.
The Savior Consciousness within you cannot perceive any other reality than this. She must save victims and triumph over perpetrators, otherwise she doesn't exist. If the Savior identity is one of your main Masks, then to become self-aware and hold intention to step outside of the Trauma Triangle and these behaviors, would elicit major resistance from the Savior consciousness.
So how does one liberate from the Trauma Triangle while also not creating resistance to the point of inner-personalities becoming saboteurs?
Ultimately your inner-personalities within the Trauma Triangle, the Savior, the Victim and the Perpetrator, must be integrated fully into the whole of your heart, mind and soul. Your Higher Self exists in a higher vibrational reality than these personalities, yet also generates within her the "nectar" that satiates these personalities.
When you meditate and align fully with your Higher Self, this is the time to journey to meet each personality.
Greet them with respect. Thank them.
Ask them three questions:
1. What do you want?
2. What do you need?
3. How will you feel when this need is met?
And then the Higher Self becomes the nectar, literally BECOMES the nectar of the specific feeling the inner-personality desires to feel. This nectar is then offered unconditionally to the inner-personality to "drink", "eat", bath in... etc..., from the very body of the Higher Self. The Higher Self is renewed and strengthened by this unconditional service and love, not depleted.
Once you begin to live (in your consciousness) outside of the Trauma Triangle on a daily basis, this is when your REAL LIFE truly begins!
This is when you begin to feel your true power, energy and genius awaken within you.
This is when you open to perceive the world as a place of opportunity, possibility, creativity and inspiration.
There is no other work more worthy to put your time into.
My Love Surround You and Give You Courage!

GREAT MOTHER SPEAKS :
Some of you desire to know more steps to take to liberate you from the Trauma Triangle. Let me continue to speak in terms of the Savior identity:
The resolution comes in a Paradox, as it should, because it is outside of the density consciousness that sees only in duality.
To release yourself from being "run" by your savior consciousness, you actually have to be More Selfish.
Yes! More Selfish!
Let me give you an example:
** If I am a healer and I have many clients depending on me, and I feel responsible for finding them solutions to their suffering - physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually... then I am consumed daily with that stress, anxiety, focus and fear of failing them.
** My view of my clients is skewed, because I am only seeing victims, rather than Evolving Intelligent Souls.
** When I tune into my energy field, I likely see the "density patterns" of my clients hooking into my own aura, chakras and tissues. I can clear them, but they come back, because I haven't transformed my Core Belief that I am their only hope to get well.
** To shift this erroneous reality, I will need to choose my own health over that of my clients. This can be very challenging for the Savior Consciousness to understand, because the Savior exists from saving others and always knowing Who Needs Saving at any given moment (family, friends, teachers, clients, cultures, planet).
** For me to unhook and liberate myself truly, I will need to LET GO of feeling responsible for the well being of others. I will need to be SELFISH!
** As I meditate, I see all the people I serve, all my close friends and family and everyone on the planet moving out of my energy field and into their own. I see that these beings are actually on THEIR OWN EVOLUTIONARY JOURNEY with wonderful lessons to learn. I see that I have been stealing their karma and lessons from them in my arrogance as a savior. I see that this makes me unhealthy and lost. I see that when I set everyone free, I BECOME FREE!
** Now I can look at these people and clients and know that I am not responsible for their growth or ascension into their own higher selves. This is their journey and theirs alone. I am here to guide, reflect, give my skills and gifts and witness them do their own integration and growth. I get to celebrate that THEY ARE SETTING THEMSELVES FREE!
** Now, I am a more effective, present, awake, and wise healer than before!
** Now.. I am not a savior. Now, I am a human being flowing in the River of Life and connected within the Sacred Web of Life. Giving and Receiving. Attracting and Repulsing. I am living in accordance with Universal (Sacred) Law.
So, please read this and take it to heart. Apply it to your own life and consider in what ways you are now ready to liberate yourself.
Each of you CAN BE a clear vessel in this lifetime if you choose to be and if you do the work/play to make this happen.
Dissolve your erroneous beliefs that are embedded in the Trauma Triangle. Discover who you truly are, for you are Limitless!
Know that I surround you always in Love!

Boundaries promote self-respect, protection, clarity, and sovereignty.
Boundaries can also promote teritorialism, jealousy, hurt feelings, and alienation.
It depends on how you set boundaries - with what motivation. And it depends on how the person you are setting boundaries with receives your request or command.
Unhealthy boundaries usually means no boundaries. Merging energies with others. Taking their emotional state into your own body. Not knowing how to say no to what you don't want, or yes to what you do want...
Having healthy boundaries usually means a self-respecting, clear understanding of what you will engage with and what you won't. You can care, and not take on another's struggles.
Most boundaries are ones we need to create within ourselves. Once we know where we stand on things, then we can act in accordance with this inner-truth and remain in self-respect. Once we cross our own line and break our own boundary, we can spiral into shame, or a sense of failing ourselves. We might also get lost in blaming our suffering on another.
I regard boundaries as healthy and also ultimately an illusion.
I know that we need the boundary of our skin to hold all our organs and muscles, etc, inside. Yet I also know that energy is exchanging constantly between every living being and every other living being, in the form of electrons, water, breath, energy...
We live in a divine paradox here on Earth! We are ONE with everything and we need to hold healthy boundaries to stay in integrity. Just as a cell is part of the whole body, yet must have a cell wall and it's own functions in order to contribute to the health of the whole.
How are your boundaries?
Do you have a clear yes and a clear no with people?
Are you rigid with your boundaries? Or flexible?
Can you see beyond the boundaries to the truth of Oneness?
