Sixty-eight Days into a New Life by Cheryl Marlene

Sixty-Eight Days into a New Life

Hindsight may be 20-20 but sixty-eight days into a new life, I stop to think of words from the past. In January, someone told me, “Cheryl expect a different outcome!” Honestly at the time, this stung a bit. I felt the implication that somehow I was stuck in seeing the same and somehow was not …

Vulnerable Absorption by Cheryl Marlene

Vulnerable Absorption

Perfectionism is often the opposite of vulnerability. Why do I say this? Let me be blunt: I have often been accused of being a perfectionist. Notice that this is an accusation, rather than a compliment, pointing towards the general feeling that perfectionism is not an attribute that one should strive for. Often portrayed as relentlessly …

We all have stories . . .

We all have stories we tell ourselves. ?We have an experience and we try to make sense of it.   Whatever story is created is not done in a vacuum but within all the previous experiences and stories of life.   These stories are fundamental. ?They help us grapple with the unexplained and the inexplicable. …

Change Your Habit of the Unknown by Cheryl Marlene

Change Your Habit of the Unknown

Now is the time to change your habit of the unknown because we are all moving closer toward the boundary of the known and the unknown. A boundary point which tends to raise fear and worry and anxiety, but especially fear. That’s why fear is so strong on Earth right now: huge numbers of people …

Working with the Unexpected by Cheryl Marlene

Working with the Unexpected

Life is not always what I expect. — leaving me working with the unexpected. Sometimes that is a great relief, sometimes a frustration, and sometimes pure joy. Since I returned from my trip to Japan in April, life has been rich, full, frustrating, and mostly unexpected. The first unexpected moment unfolded as I was getting …

Dealing with Crazy by Finding Safety by Cheryl Marlene

Deal with Crazy by Finding Safety

Here’s something about me you might not know: I am protective of my people. By my people, I mean those I am connected to including my family, my friends, my clients — in short, people like you. And when one of my people is threatened, I get a little crazy. It’s this crazy that I have been dealing with the last couple of weeks. When someone threatens me and mine with tons of moving steel in the form of a car and turns our car into a smashed tin can, I get a little crazy.

The Difficult Path by Cheryl Marlene

The Difficult Path

The Difficult Path is the path where you are willing to find the middle ground, the point where there is no resistance to moving forward but you also do not find yourself sliding off into the other side of the easy-peasy fix of instant gratification.

Quiet Motion by Cheryl Marlene

Quiet Motion

As you might know, I lived in Japan for a while and learned to speak Japanese. There is a word that I have always been intrigued by which comes to mind right now. Nigiyakana means lively, bustling, noisy, like the busy office or crowded party. There is motion and lots of it in all directions. …

When is Fear a Guide by Cheryl Marlene

When is Fear a Guide?

Fear can guide you to deeper understanding when you allow yourself to listen to Fear’s message. Fear is a misconception about Truth which can become frozen within.

A Message from the Ancestors by Cheryl Marlene

We are The Ancestors of the Planet Earth, we are The Ancestors of all universal form. We come forward to bring you a message for each of you as you begin a new solar year.

What does it mean to receive your BE-ing?

First, think of yourself as a balance between who you are physically and who you are spiritually. Your balance exists within a dynamic continuum we call Universal Life Force (ULF).? ULF is the motion in the universe that animates you and flows within the wholeness of you. You balanced between physical and spiritual with ULF …

What is the Unknowable? by Cheryl Marlene

What is the Unknowable?

In this sense the unknowable is that which is just beyond our grasp — that which dances just beyond our field of perception. The unknowable can go unnoticed easily as we go about the day-in and day-out of our lives. Yet the unknowable is also that which beckons, unrecognized, as the motivator of action, of thought, and of feeling.

Finding Healing Balance by Cheryl Marlene

Finding Healing Balance

Most often external conflict is about identifying within that which no longer serves you and is ready to be released. Conflict seen in this light can be embraced as a powerful avenue for change and seeking balance, actually two sides of the same coin of the inner healing balance.

Pressure of Fear by Cheryl Marlene

The Pressure of Fear

One of the most insidious aspects of Fear is that it pushes us to do exactly the opposite of what will bring us relief and a perspective for powerful action. In other words, fear pushes us to act out of fear, to act because we are afraid. Fear wants us to blindly accept the terror of an only imagined future. Fear hopes to dupe us into acting against our best interests. Fear goads us into acting from aversion.

Earth Changes and Human Consciousness by Cheryl Marlene

Earth Changes & Human Consciousness

Saying we are going from the third to the fourth dimension (or whatever the different ways of talking about it that there are) is to miss deeper understanding. These dimensions exist all at one time and we (Mother Earth & Planet Earth) and you are already in them. So it is not something we are moving into. But what is changing is the predominant awareness of where humans are and how humans are aware that they can exist. Awareness is changing.

On Receiving

Think of a beautiful flowing river that moves no matter the obstacle. This river is a continuous flow moving always within the potential and possibility of all energy. The river is a flow of divine energy containing the infinite possibility of the universe. This river is the flow of All That Is.
