Passion For The Science Of Truth

We sit here and write to you again, (finally), with active energy and good forward motion. We were relieved to find ourselves still here in the wake of the “predicted” judgement day that was to be May 21st. All joking aside, we have been busy at work on the launch of our brand new Daily LEAP Program via our website. This will be available for our followers to subscribe to on a monthly basis for the cost of a fancy cup of coffee. In return, subscribers will receive a password for a month full of new, balanced energy tips on a daily basis. There will be guidance for positive, loving, and productive body, mind, and soulful living, and much more! We look forward to opening this up to everyone and hope it sits well in all of your hearts.

We currently find ourselves in the Last Quarter Moon and the “play” phase of the LEAP Program, (Love, Enjoy, Appreciate, Play). This is also a time ruled by “passion” and it’s power in our lives. Inline with this time, the subject of truth has been burning quite passionately in our hearts, as well as current truth-tellers. Since “end times” seems to be a more and more frequent conversation in the world, we have felt put upon to write with these topics in mind. We found that we have quite a bit to say! There was much time spent on organizing and editing through information, and we hope you feel the truth that was intended to reach you through this particular blog post.

In our history, there are many great times of enlightenment or new ages. Each of these times have before, and will again, posses characteristics of great darkness and light. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. These are the simplest laws of our universe for balance in nature. For every occurrence, those souls that provide opposition to the truth are important catalysts in the coming growth and changes. Personally, we find ourselves knee-deep in reading leaders and up and coming truth tellers’ posts and insider information quite often. We feel that the light is desperately trying to emerge and we are constantly looking to sift through all the information we can to find the underlying truth in it all.

When it comes to “truth” much of what we know to be true is not always what we learn or accept from others. Much of what is truth for us, is actually within us already. Even if we don’t fully understand something we hear, the truth within it resonates within us. This begs the question of whether or not truth is in fact not learned, but rather felt and re-called like a distant memory. We could be a people that have just lost that particular memory – like one you haven’t thought of since you were a child, but you see a picture and it brings you back to that exact day and suddenly the memory you didn’t know for the last 35 years feels just as real as the day itself.  And so perhaps, Universal truth is more of something embedded in our soul’s. Maybe we all share one constant truth from the beginning of creation. Even with all the great advances in science, we have only broken a percentage of the human genetic code. That leaves much to be interpreted and open for discovery within our present existence here. It seems realistic to believe that the truth of our souls is embedded in there somewhere waiting for us to feel it again and allow it to penetrate into our core thinking. This is a great part of life that gives way to a completely different perspective on science. Thousands of years ago religions taught of souls and a part of us that continues long after our present physical bodies give out. Science has just now caught up to that in the remarkable discovery of the un-deniable amount of grams that “disappear” from the body in the instant of physical death. In all of these controlled studies, when no other matter has changed, no factors have been removed or added, there is a change in the body’s weight. The scientific explanation, so far, has been a stop in brain activity or another form of consciousness that leaves the body at this time. In our belief, this can be nothing other than the soul ascending the body.

We recently went to the movies and enjoyed Thor. Not necessarily a spiritual outing for us, but for a child-like break from our daily work, it was a nice way to “play” in this phase. In the movie, Thor mentions to a mortal here on Earth, “In your world, magic and science are two different things, but I come from a place where they are one in the same.” Scientifically, as we discover and prove new and amazing things, science begins to unfold the mystery of those that were once believed, (even to our grandparents), to be something of superstition or magic. As children we scream out, “Abracadabra!” in great attempts to change flowers into rabbits or silly juice and soda combinations into super human power potions. In all actuality, the word has roots in the ancient Aramaic mysticism “Avrah Ka Dabra”, meaning, “I create as I speak”. Truth has great power, and finds ways to stay constant in our lives, like this childhood play phrase. The context in which it is used may change but the weight of truth in which it possesses does not. It is important to always watch what we say, but to be more clear, we should really practice listening to the words we speak that are creating our lives.

In the same light as Truth, Fear and Love have great power. Truth seems to rule love, and power seems to rule fear. In this time there is a great narrowing in unison towards a great enlightenment. This of course, threatens the existing powers that be, and power does not go down without a fight. Creating a “New Earth” filled with loving, heartfelt, God-like people, is an uphill battle. We fight against those who currently run everything based in money and distractions against the balance and love we work so hard to focus on in our everyday lives. They want a civilization that continues on the path that makes them more rich, and more powerful, not one that makes them equal and loving and giving. These people are blind to the power in that. They only see the truth in their battle against enlightenment – it is always easier to destroy than to create. A building takes much time, planning, and effort to build. However, the desolation of that building can be quick and swift. That is where the fear comes into play with the powers in control now. They blast the world with fear-based images and scare tactics that they believe will force the majority to follow scared and weak. We turn around and give this dark power easy access to us via Facebook, Twitter, google, text messages, yahoo news, etc. These fast, instant ways of sending information to everyone across the globe, all at once, provide a great tool for targeted fear campaigns. Their intention is based on getting us all scared and in a fear-based place of attraction towards the negative. Every time they blast a story of “doomsday approaching” and we read it, collective fear ignites and produces a surge of concentrated thinking on a subject throughout the entire consciousness grid. In these moments, the dark powers that be, win our energy towards their goals.

You can find people everywhere preaching what they personally interpret to be the correct teachings from holy texts like The Bible, The Koran, The Bhagavad Gita, just to name a few. These same people shout out judgement day predictions and signs of end times. When the word “apocalypse” in Greek actually means “to unveil” or “to reveal”, not even close to what many of these preach to be the meaning.  Universal truth lies in all of these texts and it’s true information is powerful stuff that not everyone is ready for. Simple symbols like the peace sign are taken out of context, not to mention the mis-understood sentences and entire chapters in holy text. The text in Revelations mentions the end of the world as we know it. So perhaps it’s time we know something better. All of these texts do seem to quietly whisper the same message – that you are God and that the kingdom of Heaven is within you. Not outside of us, or beyond our reach, but deep within each of our souls. That is truth that resonates with us.

We are currently in a time when science, mind, heart, and faith in religious beliefs will all unveil a common thread of truth in our world. Amidst all the great distractions this world now provides and continues to create, we believe that we have forgotten how divine we actually are – “created in his image”. However, it is encouraging to watch as science proves what many ancient faiths already knew and taught throughout generations. This gives us hope for the blossoming of a new age where the faith and beliefs that many of us have in our hearts, can be proven to the world currently not open to our kind of truth.

For example, what was once observed to be miracles in ancient times, may be what we are seeing as great leaps in “mind over matter” today. Take the select cancer patients, who take a completely holistic and natural way of healing and turn a death sentence into a grand life experience of defying science. So many have actually changed their cancer cells into revitalized healthy cells, simply by focused intention and belief in the ability to create that outcome.

Our power to successfully, and actively create our lives can be a difficult truth to accept. And for some, at this stage of growth, not a truth at all. We don’t currently live in a place that displays that positive ability very well. However, if someone were to hand you a violin and tell you that you have the capability to make beautiful, symphony concert music with it, would they be lying?  Of course not. You DO have the capability to do so, but it would require enormous amounts of dedication and practice to “create” that. Unless you know a magic spell that we don’t, in which case you could just snap, your fingers, say “Abracadabra”, and be a musical prodigy overnight! For many this would be a life-long work in progress, but for a few it may be an easy hobby. There are just some souls more inclined to or possess more raw, natural ability. But anyone can work on focused intention and practice creating to their own degree of mastery.

Perhaps still more exciting, is that the power of our individual thought grows exponentially with the number of minds sharing a focus or intention. Great creating can come from a group working on the same thought at the same time – “two heads are better than one”. Furthermore, science opened truths in studies that 2 brains working together are not just twice as good, but rather, many, many times the strength. Which gives scientific validation to the belief and practice in meditation groups, healing circles, singing and chanting in unison, prayer groups, or any large group gatherings towards one collective purpose. The truth that lies in the positive intention of gathering like-minded people with loving hearts to work towards one goal is inspiring. We plan to do that at our retreats and more through our website and online events held together collectively.

We pray you have felt the passion in what our souls have written here. A large truth for us at Souls Converge is to always give from a place of  loving light and heartfelt intention. If there was any portion of this post that felt true to you, then we feel we have served our purpose. And if it did not, feel free to simply dump it all. But most importantly, keep a forward motion. With all the current events and truths around us we have to keep a positive outlook for our souls. We can start by living in the lives we have created with gratitude and taking an active role of participation, rather than merely reacting to everything around us. As we move towards cultivating a new cycle, practice being more aware of the truths around you. Watch what you say and do, as it is a direct reflection of where your soul is in it’s current place of growth. Keep in mind that if we are truly the temple and it’s master with the key, how do we not make it beautiful and only allow that which is equally beautiful and loving into our lives?

Truth: These major life tasks require much work, and the accountability to yourself and the Universal truths that lie deep in our souls take much discipline, but can you think of anything more rewarding to work towards? We can’t.

LEAP into April!

Welcome to a whole new cycle of LEAP! The Love, Enjoy, Appreciate, Play program from Souls Converge. New here? Welcome! You may want to read our beginning launch of the program back in our initial post (The Moon And You), but you don’t need to in order to follow us now, here in this moment of presence. Subscribe to our blog to get the program as soon as we post it directly to your inbox or mobile device. Also, we will be sending occasional reminders and helpful tips throughout the program to assist you in your daily growth if you are a subscriber.

And just like that, a new beginning is upon us once again…

For these next few days we find ourselves welcoming the New Moon in a sprouting phase. For our LEAP program, we are in the “Love” portion, primarily focusing on the love for ourselves. We can sometimes allow our minds to control our emotional heart. Yes, we mean “allow”, as everything is up to you when it comes to your mind. At this moment in time, the mass idea or signal being sent out over the consciousness grid through governments and internet reporting is fear: “Fear what has happened in Japan, it is going to affect you, and/or it could happen to you where ever you live. ” Or “The government shut down for 2011 is coming!” This was one of the most searched subjects on Google today. Just like you choose what you put in your car to drive, choose what you feed yourself when you absorb the negativity on the news, television shows, and people in social situations. Be more aware of the negative show premise or the “friend” who feeds off the drama of others. You wouldn’t expect your car to run well off soda would you? The fact is; there are horrible occurrences all over the world, in your country and in your neighborhood happening everyday. If it were our soul’s purpose to walk in fear and be paralyzed by happenings, we would be a very weak civilization. And in many respects we are. In our attraction of the worst of things to occur we are weak, but as individuals seeking a higher purpose and better existence in the here and now, we are strong and not ruled by fear, but love. For that we must rejoice! The positive light love gives to all things is, in fact, our main purpose. The moment you can steer your direction of thinking to this, is the moment you will move towards awakening.

The bible says, “I am the Lord thy God. Fear not, for I am with you.” The Spirit of God dwells in the heart of everyone and everything that IS. Man is the measure of the universe.  You are the Heavens and the Earth. You were created and can create from that same place from which you were spoken into loving existence – the heart. You are one with the existence of this moment, not as the worker/mother/boyfriend/34 year old, but the soul that has purpose and love to reflect into this physical realm of consciousness. You are a physical being that is capable of great things and great mistakes, but you have to move on from them. Love and forgive yourself for past indiscretions and move forward to the One you wish to be.

MAKE TIME for yourself right now. This means real time, stillness, not just another distraction. Find a quiet place, sit and try to let yourself be wrapped in calmness and let all of your worries go. Use our “Breathe the Light” meditation and listen to our favorite sounds meditation “Holy Harmony” by Jonathan Goldman and say, write or repeat in your thoughts “Ho’oponopono.”   If you find your mind is just too busy at the moment to enjoy stillness, find something that inspires you to be positive, like an upbeat music list, inspirational movie, or heartfelt book.

While you are in this place, ask yourself what you want, if money, time, and you, were no object or obstacle. If you could just lovingly become and grow into anything, what would it be? Even if right now you can only see as far as tomorrow, focus on what you will be a better version of tomorrow. Write this down in a journal, or on post-its to place in your workspace or car, type notes for yourself in your phone, or place them into your calendar to go off during the day as reminders. These are the seeds that are sprouting through this cycle of LEAP. Let go of how much you didn’t grow or follow through with any previous things. Forgive yourself for small and large situations. It’s done, (although you may have lingering issues attached to these incidents), the actual moment and time of their negative light you are holding onto is in the past. The Now is upon us and you must move on, completely letting go of your attachment to your past mistakes.

This is a great time to cleanse. We like the Master Cleanse, but you can choose to cleanse or detox anyway you feel healthiest. Even if that means just cutting out fast food for now, it’s a start, and we guarantee you will feel the difference. The more you can assist yourself in a higher vibration the more you will feel alive and energized to grow during the LEAP phases.

As you move through these next couple days, find a moment or two to retreat into nature.  For you, maybe this is a city park, or perhaps an entire coastline or forest, whichever the case, you will find your seeds beginning to grow and time out in the sunshine will nurture these positive thoughts.

5 Things to Focus on:

1. Let go and forgive – yourself! Use “Breathe the Light” meditation to assist you in finding the things you are holding onto and they will release from you. You can also use “Ho’oponopono” during this.

2. Allow for more love than fear. Surround yourself with good choices and heartfelt decisions of what you listen to, read, watch and say.

3. Take time to focus on you and communicate your intentions to the Universe.

4. A time for Cleansing: Epsom salt baths, cutting out fast food, participating in a green drink or master cleanse system, and sun bathing, all while drinking plenty of water and finding time for nature.

5. Above all else – LOVE. Be a shining example of it to everyone, but most importantly – you. Love yourself and in turn that love will shine and feed others.

Additional Recommendations:

This indigo blue color, (to the right), represents self realization, inner senses, intuition, deep connections to the moon, spirit, magic, mystery, and clearing your mind. Perhaps try wearing it this phase or place candles or tea-lights of this color around where you’re meditating. Set the wallpaper on your phone to it or at work, set your desktop background to something like it from a simple search for “indigo blue” through google images .

For scents and smells: Lavender to release tensions, and promote calm. Citrus choices like Tangerine and earthy ones like patchouli provide clarity and tranquility. We are addicted to the Young Living Oils and their blends. A great one for this phase of LEAP is their Peace & Calming Oil containing a therapeutic grade essential oil blend of Tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli, and blue tansy.

As always, we welcome your feedback and encourage your loving insights. This is a program, but in no way, a rigid one. We bring you this with loving intentions and open hearts to share these truths, in hopes that they speak to you specifically in any way they are meant to. We hope you are blessed by our LEAP posts, and look forward to building our community, Souls Converge. Feel free to share this online through social media, or forward it onto someone you think may benefit.

Wishing you great abundance and growth!
