She Walks with Ravens

They call to her

each morning

and

with echoing rhythms

in three and four time,

sing:

“you know you are

each moment new

nothing to hold onto

nothing to define you ~

in this holy dance

Nameless existence ~

a synonym for the identity

we see you choose and discard

Do not worry

we will eat your leftovers

the charred bits

and decaying refuse

Working in tandem

you can fly free

in the shadow of our wings.

It is our honor to support you

to ~ awaken with our caws

our holy meal

awaits your endeavor.

So, Shapeshift, dear one,

leave expectation behind.

walk with the Ravens.

know the silence. . .

of the womb, of the void ~

that chamber of the heart

so cavernous and stood.”

They call to her

and she listens.

She walks with Ravens

and the world is her oyster.

Sounding News, 3/2021

There is no place like home. Isn’t that how the movie line goes? (hat tip to the Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy and friends). Yet in the instance to which I am referring, the home IS the no-place ~the no place that is the place-holder for authentic and potent possibility. Yet how do we get there? How do we become rooted in possibility so that we can grow tall in our authenticity? The first step, if you will, is knowing we are eternal vibration. We are frequency and sound, which is light, which is sound (remember, everything is made up of waves, including the chair you may be sitting on and the computer that is before you). The reason that the waves can be seen is because they have been intended. There is conscious choice involved in allowing infinite potential to take form. All that is (and all that is not) , I AM, or whatever name you use for namelessness itself slows down enough to experience what it feels like to appear to particularize. Which leads to the second “step” in actualizing your rooted potential: observation. When you observe something, you are interacting with it at a spooky distance while simultaneously being it (thank you, Einstein). There is no observing without an observer, and so the simplest conclusion is that what you observe, you create, which is you! You bring your perception into your purview and make it yours – at least for the moment. And yet, since you are frequency, which are waves, there is nothing to own or hold onto. Paradox got you in a catch 22? Here is where you will want to remember that everything is frequency, waves. You exist as an apparent form, seemingly solid, yet you are literally a carrier and transmitter of waves. You are a living wave-form.

Next, you will want to avail yourself of the reality that nothing is personal. The very real life you have manifested as your story is that – a story. No matter how complex/multilayered/real-seaming/compelling/august – you name it. None of that changes the fact that you are writing a story. Where is your story leading? Are you aware that you are the script writer, director, leading actor and supporting roles? That You call your life’s story into being?

Where is all of this leading?

Sounding, of course, since this newsletter is my story that I am writing to you, dear reader (whom I observe and make real for the moment, and vis. a vis)! Conscious story writing is community. That doesn’t mean that all communities of conscious story writers will agree or get along or see things in the same way, but it does mean that there is an effort involved to be able to zoom in and out of the picture being etched so that it can be the likeness intended.

Intention is the heart of my practice of Sounding. My intention for you, when I sound, is to reflect your gorgeous essence: Your Infinite Presence, which is creating experience moment to moment through choice of observation. This nexus of choice is so very empowering that staying within the awareness of its grace, with no need to choose at all puts you in touch with your infinite potential. Reflecting in no-place may seem like a cotton-field, yet it is actually the most grounded state you can experience. There is no home like your coherent vibration, which is the All and the No-thing. Be in touch with it as you grow rooted in self-knowledge, observation, choice and intention. Then you will rise up and know what you know.

Posting again

I am reposting Toni Petrinovich’s beloved article “Love: How It Ties Everything Together” here, again, with personal commentary below. Hear now from The Reverend Doctor Toni:

“I rarely post the entirety of my newsletter article to FB. In this case, I am making an exception because it is something absolutely everyone is to know. It is entitled Love – How It Ties Everything Together: Before there was time, before there was space – that which is truly nameless existed. Some call it God, some Source, some I AM, some All That Is and many, many other names in an attempt to name that which has no name. Yet, that is not the point of our story. Today I am going to tell you a tale of creation – a creation story – how it all began and how it all ties together. Let us imagine the Nameless consciously existing as light for the purposes of this story. If I am going to weave a yarn, I need threads with which to weave, so let my first thread be light without purpose or goal. And for the purpose of our story, let’s give this light a name – let’s call it Love – not human love with all of its conditions and expectations – but Limitless Love, Absolute Love without judgment or form. Now, we have set the stage. Let’s begin the story: The light, Love, is aware of Itself, consciously aware of Itself and Its beginninglessness and endlessness. It is aware – only that. Love is aware. In a timeless moment, Love begins to express in form. It sends out rays of love-filled light, emanations of Itself. This light contains everything that Love is because it is extending Itself into space that It is creating as It spreads, ever-unfolding into the infinite space that It is creating with each extension. The waves of light are endless and are composed of all that Love is. Each aspect of these waves has an affinity to each other aspect because each is the same. Each emanation contains all that Love is and is drawn to re-unite with all other emanations that are also all that Love is. Time is created as it begins to pass in this manifestation of Love. Moving through the now created space, time now has a place because It has space in which to record Its passing. And as time passes, the draw to re-combine, to unite totally in Love’s union begins to overtake the waves of light. They join, wind tightly together in different forms and shapes. Particles of light begin to take shape as the frequency of the light slows down to ravishingly enjoy this encounter with Itself. The shapes take different forms and within those forms the consciousness of Love exists. Time is passing. Time is recording in space the happenings within the emanations of Love. A record of conception is being created. Then, in a given moment in time in space, the various particles of Love enraptured with each other fuse into a form that begins to identify Itself as individual. This is a natural outcome of the enchanted delight of Love’s forms because it gives Love ever-increasing variations into which to pour its pure Love. Each form takes a name, an identity as Love. Eventually, these forms would be called human beings. So, now in our story, we have arrived at Love’s creation of human beings as aspects of Love itself characterized by a composite of Its attributes. And, since Love comprises all – within its properties are also judgment, anger, separation and hate. Love has been conscious of this, yet has not placed emphasis upon any of Its attributes because Its formless existence found no necessity to do so. So, as the human beings, conscious Love in form, begin to explore all of their individual aspects and properties, their concentration on their physical form, their flesh and all that it feels and contains begin to be the center of each human being’s attention. Time passes. Each human being begins to feel like he or she is the only one experiencing the passing of time, pain within the physical body, longing for union once again, in general, a deep sense of loss. As time continues to pass, each human being becomes so distracted with its physical form that it forgets what it actually is. Meanwhile, Love is holding all of its manifested emanations without judgment in the eternal Love that it is. So, now in our story, picture it if you would – each human being standing on the earth that came to be created as its home, believing that it was, or should I say is, the only emanation of Love because it has forgotten through time that every other person, place and thing it sees contains all of the aspects of Love, as well. Yet, because time has passed, each individual has forgotten that it is Love – as well as fear, hate, disappointment, expectation and hope. Each human being has begun to believe that the only way to find peace once again is by controlling the ground upon which it is standing, the actions of those others (who could not be Love like it is) and by focusing all of its attention on making sure that the form in which it is living feels good, no matter what it takes to do so. Meanwhile, Love is holding all of its manifested emanations without judgment in the eternal Love that it is. So, how does all of this tie together? It is really quite simple. You are made of Love – that is all. Everything that you feel is part of that Love. Yet, it is up to you how you are going to express yourself in each moment of passing time as it records your thoughts, words and actions in created space. And, since Love Itself is extending Itself as you, it is your choice how you are going to appear as that Love. As we said, Love is All. Love is conscious of the discomfort that comes with feeling hurt, deep emotional pain, fear of loss, insecurity. Love is holding you, as its manifested emanation, without judgment as you feel these experiences. Yet, only you can bring the circle fully around and back to the moment in which Love emanated itself. Only you know what feels so enrapturing, so enthralling that you do not ever want to leave that time and space, want to continue experiencing this union with Love in its fullest, infinite, complete form. Only you can create the weaving of the threads for yourself because you are that Love in form. When you accept that you are the endless love that you call by any other name, God, Source, I AM, or whatever label you have given to Love, when you feel and know that you are that Love in every fiber of your being, then it will all tie together for you. Meanwhile, Love is holding all of Its manifested emanations without judgment in the eternal Love that It is ~ without time or space, infinitely and eternally. It is emanating, expressing, revealing Itself as you.” (article by Toni Petrinovich: http://www.sacredspaceswa.com)

Personal Commentary:

Recently, some personal forgiveness work has come up for me. I found myself asking why I have made the choices I have made and then blamed others for the outcomes which I did not enjoy? It comes back to Love. I simply forgot I am Love. Accepting that love is made up of everything without emphasis, I can appreciate the personal emphasis that I have chosen to work with because I am endless. That is a lynchpin, a key. And knowing everyone is endless as well takes the sting out of what I have come to experience as personal. Truly, it is all Love. And now is a time to remember All.

Well-pleased

Brown Deer Beside Road

My conscious experience tells me what is true.”

On a snowy walk within the deer-inhabited ravine near our home, Recognition visited me in a way that was new, and as all things novel and unexpected, I turn to writing to flesh out my experience, making it my own.

As an introduction, I often go out into nature to release tension, free the mind, and open to the insights of a sensual world unencumbered by thought. In this state I experience my union with the elements: sun, wind, earth, water, animal, and I enjoy interacting with these fields and they with me. It is a dance.

While in this state, a few days ago, watching water alight with the sun’s rays, I heard the words “This is my creation, in which I am well-pleased”. It was in an embodied way, as if a portion of my mind was revealing an aspect of myself, as Creator, approving of her creation. Simple. Literal.

Magnifying this aspect, I realized its authenticity – I am creator of my world – through thoughts, observation, and knowing/feeling/sensing my connection within All That Is (in other words God, Allah, I Am, the Nameless and so on – ). I also realize, in hindsight, that I do not need to be here physically for my creation to continue existing – and that is true for all of us.

I was recently told by someone that they hoped that I believe I am created by God, and that I believed in the tenants of salvation through Jesus. They wanted me to know what they know and experience life they way they do, but just because it is not for me to accept someone else’s beliefs does not mean they do not exist for them.

In addition, my conscious experience tells me what is true. When I created unconsciously, through belief that I was powerless, yet somehow redeemed (because of that powerlessness?), I was at the mercy of a mind that was full of confusion, self-doubt and fear. As soon as I became aware that there was another way to be, that the mind can be worked with, loved, understood and integrated within the whole of the divine spirit that is our birthright, I set to work in this life ~ with the ally of utmost humility as it is no small thing to have the ability to turn within and become aware. The work of Master Teacher Reverend Doctor Toni Petrinovich has been crucial to this endeavor. Profoundly, the love and support of my dear husband, Fernando – no fair-weather friend, and the loving presence of my two divinely courageous children, Elizabeth and Arthur, have turned me towards my light, distinctly. Surrendering to that light is my life’s calling.

I am also indebted to my parents and Ancestors, and I revere their profound perseverance and strength. They have overcome tremendous obstacles in order to bring forth and nurture this life – my life. Who can repay that debt? And yet I do by becoming what they would, given the same opportunities and proclivities in this life.

I Am that I Am, indeed. After the party is over, all is said and done and my body is ready to merge with the earth again upon my transition, what do I have? What do any of us have? In this moment and ever-more, it is our Essence, Love And with It, I Am Well-Pleased.

Master Teacher Toni Petrinovich demonstrates how Love ties it all together in this gorgeous weaving of words, which she has given me permission to share here. Thank you, Toni (see http://www.sacredspaceswa.com)

Expectations and the Movie “Soul”

Ah! expectations. Even when we think we do not have them, guess what? The mind loves to stuff them into your pockets without you even knowing – like the bits and bobbles that you may need in order to make sure that your experience is going they way you think it needs to in order to be safe.

But what if safety is an illusion – the freedom of safety the biggest marketing tool ever concocted?

I reflect on the life I have led and realized it has opened up in proportion to my allowance for it to do so in no uncertain terms. Where does the certainty come from? knowing that I don’t know. Knowing that I have a gift and following its nudges to share where appropriate – no matter what. My greatest joy is in sharing my gifts and letting that take me where it wants to be. It isn’t different than following a toddler around – their mysterious and baffling yet fully aligned ways delighting us in their unexpected dips and turns and ability to revel in the moments as they unfold! Of course, to the mind, this exploration seems so slow! Isn’t there a point a to be? Isn’t there a trajectory to achieve?

Those questions are exactly what has kept me from sharing fearlessly. I know now, that I am my own gift. That I am my own purpose – sort of like the movie by Disney Pixar: Soul. I have a gift, yet the ocean of my joy is not only sharing my talent, but “jazzin'” through life – enjoying my capacity to “be the music” wherever I am, whether I am singing or not. Bringing out my heart in order to see the beautiful heart-beat of all those I come across is the deeper meaning of it all, and thankfully, it is not necessary to die, go into a coma, meet celestial beings and then walk-in again to the body (the script of Soul) to activate said Heart. It does take Courage. And that is a beautiful quality to cultivate.

Love,

Katie

Let’s Talk

Person Pouring Tea In White Ceramic Mug

Dear Friends,

If you are reading this, you are most likely a part of Reverend Doctor Toni’s readership. How lucky we are!

I am speaking for myself, of course, since I stumbled forward into the sacredspaceswa dot com website ten lucky years ago. (Trigger warning, author will not be mincing words)

Since that momentous occasion, I have learned that stumbling forward into my Sovereignty would be a way of life for a while. Glamorous? no. Real? Absolutely. You see, I had studied with the beautiful and famous teachers of Self for years. I had scoped out what psychoanalysis had to offer – in person, over and over again. Was I fed up? Hell no, I was just getting started.

Where was I? Stumbling onto Sacredspaceswa dot com. I love it. Sacred spaces. Rearrange just a couple of letters and you have “scared spaces”. Yep. That was it. I needed, desperately of course (wink), to explore my scared places with out shame or fear so that I could alchemize to realize . . . they are, as it turns out, Sacred spaces.

By the way, have you had a reading with Toni? Glorious, glorious, glory be ~ what an experience!

The perspective from the refined modus of Toni’s enlightened mind, compassionate heart and fearless guts makes you swoon, doesn’t it . . . it creates a wave of glorious possibility that is so nourishing to ride. Until the ride ends, and you are left again, where you are (sometimes with the same hang-ups – albeit you can no longer take them quite so seriously). Not to belittle the great gift of perspective and swelling appreciation for all that you ARE that Reverend Doctor Toni’s readings elucidate, or your commitment to studying them with verve, yet wouldn’t you like to be able to command that perspective and appreciation for yourself, at will?

And I know what you are thinking, because I thought to myself: I am too frightened. What if I don’t like what I see when I look into my scared places to turn them into sacred places? What if people find out I am not so ________________ (fill in the blank: sure of myself, coherent, wise or smart, fearless et. al). What if I find out that I am lying to myself? Spoiler alert: if you are like me, and there isn’t much I’ve seen to contradict this fact of being human and believing in the theory of separation, you are lying to yourself.

Why do I say theory of separation? because after falling forward into Toni’s courses, examining for myself all of my scared places to turn them into sacred spaces and climbing my personal mountain of conscious experience so as to “See what I see and know what I know”, separation becomes just that: a theory.

Really, what have we got to lose? A lot of drama, pain, confusion and the aching loneliness that keeps us in hiding. In fact, a wonderful place to start is “Trusting Aloneness”. This wonderful course will illuminate the ways in which you may give yourself the ability to flow fully within your vibration. Not for a shrinking violet, you nevertheless will find that this course supports you in blossoming more fully into that which you are, because you give yourself permission to feel good, all the time, with no need for any outside confirmation whatsoever. How freeing is that?

Or, if you have allowed yourself to slide the slippery slope into spending your precious time developing opinions or seeing where you fit into any sort of Group Think, you may find that “The Audacity of Your Intention” compelling. This course will bring you back into your center, where your choices clear up because You are your own outcome. Although taking responsibility for your state through self-knowledge and awareness of your over-riding intention may seem intimidating, it really is a matter of letting go of all the bad habits that have accumulated like so much dust on the table. This self-paced course demonstrates how surrendering to your message gives the ability to envision and then take the steps towards your preferred experiences within the earth-plane.

One through line in Toni’s teachings is, you guessed it, Coherence. Understanding your vibration is the key to offering it without strings attached; freedom. “Relief from Belief” is a course that will encourage you as you ascertain what those strings are for you. Many of the strings are common themes. For example, you may be questioning “Can I really follow the voice of my Heart?”, or “will I be safe if I make the changes I so long to make”, and if you are a people pleaser in remission, a big one is “will I still like people, and will they like me?” Yet, how are you going to answer those questions from your sacred core if you are attached to the doubt and not the solution to these questions? And don’t worry, if you are afraid of Who You Will Be after the beliefs have been swept away like so much dust, dive right into “Living I AM”. It is a beautiful landing place that supports your coherent living within your authenticity.

The point is that Life is a huge playground with limitless areas and perspectives to engage. Do you really want to stay stuck playing earth-games when you could take the time, and patiently work through your stuff? I know that it can seem like slow-going at times, yet the rewards are real, and they are felt. Toni is expert at highlighting how much traction you have gained, and though you may want to stop and rest occasionally and take in the view, allow yourself to know that as you grow in your capacity to Self reflect, your joy will mount and you may find yourself enjoying the climb!

If you want to talk about any of the courses or ask any questions regarding my experience with taking them, email me at kathrynsings@yahoo.com

In the One Heart,

Katie

The Way We Are

I am thinking of the title to this post, and how it mimics the title of the song “The Way We Were”. Yet the Way We Are is more appealing to me, since it emphasizes the present moment, which is all that we have. Still, I found myself in reflection this Christmas Evening as I was brushing my teeth, and wanted to write down my reminisces. My mind was visiting moments in this past year where connections were made: beyond the mask and social distances, yes, my mind took me on a brief tour of those moments of connection that seemed to pass so quickly, and yet contained so much ~ those moments where you are with someone you know, or even an acquaintance or stranger and there is a feeling of a pause, or a point of acceptance, that we somehow really know each other, or know that we know that we are here, now, together ~ a feeling that each is aware that awareness is indeed the glue that binds us together – homo sapiens sapiens being together.

Dictionary dot com has this to say about our species : “Homo sapiens definition, the species of bipedal primates to which modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) belong, characterized by a large brain, a nearly vertical forehead, a skeletal build lighter and teeth smaller than earlier humans, and dependence upon language and the creation and utilization of complex tools: the species has existed for about 200,000 years.”

Modern humans have larger brains and lighter and smaller bones. We no longer hunt, but boy do we gather. One look at the spoils under the Christmas tree today confirms that!

Yet the hunt is still very present, isn’t it? It has changed forms. We now, having filled our bellies and pocket books, hunt for meaning and inner peace, entertainment and social safety. Perhaps our earlier species found meaning in the hunt and peace in the transient joys of life and that was enough. Perhaps our big brains have complicated things for us, and perhaps they have allowed us to do something entirely different ~ to create.

The attitude of the hunt – job hunt, partner hunt, the hunt for a cure, the hunt for game animals in the Serengeti. We feel compelled to hunt, yet it has lost some of its nobleness. How can we work with this instinct to re ignite its meaning for our primal brain? It may be that we still long to prowl and growl and bite and chew life as our earliers did, yet don’t know how. The social arena is for some a vast ocean of entertainment and for others a desert of thirst laden vistas. Viva la difference!

What if, in becoming aware of the urge to hunt and all of the adrenaline surges and competitive edges that go along with that endeavor were allowed to be neutralized somewhat? Would we risk our intelligence? Become prey to predatory forces? What if we are aware that we are aware, and only that? Homo sapiens sapiens? What would emerge?
