I made this video because I love films and I think there is great wisdom inherent in the film medium. This video represents some of the best film wisdom I could find, edited together as a single, coherent piece of advice.

In creating this video, I wanted to focus on a few key themes, while featuring as many films as I could. As a result, Reel Wisdom features a broad array of films, from action/adventure and sci-fi films, to dramas and traditional/CG animated films in order to show how all genres of film have something important to say.

There are a lot of Star Wars lines, I know. I included those mainly because I grew up watching Star Wars, and I love all the great lessons found in the films. And obviously, I couldn’t make a video with all the wisdom from films, because it would be really long and rather incoherent. This video contains wisdom from only 40 films in a world where hundreds of films are made every year. Sorry if your favorites didn’t make it. But send me a message and maybe I’ll include them in Reel Wisdom: Part 2…

This portion of the journey culminates in an example of Transcendent Awakening that is a result of the Law of Attraction. Seeming “coincidental grace” is the theme of this part of the Prodigals Journey.

Greetings from Australia’s Gold Coast, where my husband and I moved to in May, after a powerful and turbulent April.  We are loving the fresh energy and embracing our new chapter together, for however long this particular location remains ours to rest in and enjoy.

Are you feeling increasing Freedom at the various levels of your Being?  Yes, there are the ever-present, commonplace  ‘Ascension Symptoms’ as we are powerfully reconfigured, but can you feel the Lightness of Embodiment and Being now available?

There was a time I woke up every morning, depressed that I was ‘still here’, ‘trapped in limitation’.  I came to realise, though, that this idea of entrapment originated in layers of galactic histories I had experienced and forged, ‘for better or for worse’, and most particularly, histories wherein I accepted a vice-grips-like mindset that assumed my supposed ‘worthlessness and guilt’ and that being here in matter, in the body, and on the Earth……that all these were somehow an  ‘entrapped, fallen state’ and ‘less than’.  Further, that the Freedom I was seeking would be found out there, extradimensionally and via a mysterious, omnipotent Creator.  Any place but here.  As if there was something inherently wrong with ‘this body’, with ‘this Earth’ because I was ‘so fallen’.

Undoubtedly, this destructive mindset has been a major tenet of our terrestrial, patriarchal religions, along with the proposed salvation that would come from ‘out there’, external to us, and particularly through a male creator god and administered by countless intermediaries who somehow knew all the rules, had the dogma and the strategy (and your karma) down pat, and if we had atoned appropriately, prayed and meditated and cleared enough with the ‘right’ sets of rules and ‘isms’…we would be ‘saved’ (ascend) and all suffering would cease.

What is interestingly coming more and more to Light is that suffering is generated from within these systems of ‘right behaviour’ and ‘redemption’ themselves, and not because we are fallen.  That the beliefs and ideologies that underpin such systems are themselves critically outdated – and continually position human beings as being in need of salvation via various methodologies, deities or ETs, and via an endless clearing of karma/error/sin program to ascend, to get to Heaven or the 5th Dimension or Universal Consciousness.  To finally make it there…somewhere.

Instead now we find that we have the power from within ourselves to dream up and create any reality and any belief system (like we have always had), and we are finding that these ‘new’ belief systems are showing up the outdated nature of the old interpretations.  In fact, we conjure, manifest, birth, create all of it ourselves through our extraordinary capacities to create, to intend, to focus……  Our tools are inner tools and technologies that have lain dormant, to be sure, but they are there nonetheless and always have been.  And all of these tools are literally within each of us in an outrageous, teaming smorgasbord of frequency possibilities……and therefore, possible and potential realities.

All is because of frequency….  And where you nest in your frequency, is the reality you perceive, co-create and experience.

Scientists have discovered that although 400 billion bits of information per second are carried through frequencies around us, our brains have been capable of decoding only 2000 bits of those 400 billion bits.  That’s us decoding a mere 1% of what’s available – and with that merest fraction we have dreamt and created entire religions, economic structures, government, philosophies, civilisations and cultures.

And now, as the portals of consciousness are blasted open by the Sun and its solar flares, the Galaxy and its barrages from the Galactic Core, Earth changes, shifts in the electromagnetic grids and Schumann resonance, global protests, the revolutionary energies across the Arab world and Europe, the slow death of the world’s global debt economy…….wow…….our brains are rewiring and reconfiguring wildly in the galactic breeze, and we are feeling, seeing and hearing frequencies long closed to us.  We are moving past just 2000 bits of decoding capability into fresh landscapes.

By all means, we have had to undergo clearing, housecleaning, endless purges and healing in order to see, feel and know what we’ve been dealing with in terms of outdated beliefs.  However, let us be clear here that it hasn’t all been about the atoning for all the bad karma of times gone past.  We have been loved unconditionally through it all, and because of it all. (Truly, how does one learn or experience anything, without learning or experiencing anything?)

What I am saying is that we have been loved and that we are in fact free……not unworthy, long-suffering victims of our karma, ‘trying to get home’, petitioning to be spared any further pain and punishment and setbacks, and getting home once we are good enough.  We have never not been the Love that created us, and the Love that is us and has its expression through us, whatever we are creating – ‘good’, ‘bad’ and otherwise’.  We are the great dreamers and generators of stories in time and space – and that’s that.  No matter how much you have tried to pretend you are not Love, you are.  You are Love Itself.

And so, what are we being saved from at this point except our crazed interpretations and our desires to ‘be saved’, ‘redeemed’, ‘worthy’, ‘cleared’, ‘better’, ‘well’?  Truly, saved from what?  Redeemed for what purpose?  Redeemed by whom?  Who decides, who has decided what is ‘wrong about you’?  Whose rules were they, anyway, and why did we listen to them?  Is there a time when we will stop ‘getting ready’….and just ‘be ready’ because We are the Universal Consciousness Itself, and are thus home in ourselves, no holds barred, with no intermediaries and interpreters necessary because we remember who we are? Isn’t Direct Experience the promise of these forecasted and magically auspicious times? Read more…

People who operate in the context of responsibility declare that they are accountable for their interpretations and behavior.

Caring mainly about the ultimate success of their projects and relationships, they are oriented to action and correction rather than explanation and self-protection.

Responsible people do not spend a lot of energy estimating how things got to be the way they are. Rather, they focus on the effective action. They are more concerned with having a project or relationship work rather than the reasons why it will not.

In the responsible structure of interpretation, one looks to oneself as the source of all aspects of the project or relationship. The responsible person looks at what works and what does not work. The responsible person does not approach the project or relationship as though something is wrong, rather that there is something missing.

When one is responsible, one voices few psychological assessments. Instead, one’s focus is on what action will further the project or relationship. The responsible person is able, willing and striving to tell the truth about what has been done and not done. They are not as concerned with looking good as with having life work.

Real responsibility is not to be confused with blame, credit, obligation or duty. Acting from the context of responsibility, one is concerned with the facts only as they bear on the next appropriate action. There is no concern about whether the facts seem to give credit or blame.

When one operates out of the stand of responsibility, one is empowered by being the source of one’s own results, not intimidated or weighed down by that. A stand of responsibility does not signify restrictive ties, but freedom to act.
