Audio with Macha: Navigating Big Choices When You Don’t Take the Path of Least Resistance

Macha and I get on the horn to discuss why I’m changing my birthing plan and how to navigate social and medical standards that you don’t believe in–and what makes Macha want to throw a temper tantrum!

Here’s the Mp3:

More on Transfiguration

I know many of you are hungry for more insights on transfiguration. Before I begin this next installment on the subject, I would like to invite you to take a moment to still your minds from the mental chatter and to soften the old common belief systems. Open as much as you can to the idea that humanity was born out of a powerful union with the Source of all life – like a son or daughter carrying all the attributes and qualities of the parents’ DNA. Consider that we’ve been on a long journey away from that truth, and consider the effects that this distance may have had on us. Once you feel you have grasped the wonder of that perspective and open mental state, I invite you to read on…

There is light all around us and inside every atom of our being – such exquisite, pulsating, living light that is the very essence of health, beauty, and joy. Even though this world of light is rarely seen or understood, and largely untapped, it’s very much still there, living with us. It’s as bright and undiminished as ever. We just don’t incorporate it in our human realm because it is not a part of our cultural paradigm.

Why not? Where did it go? Somewhere along the line we cut ourselves off from the great Source, possibly when we traded indigenous life for so-called civilized life. Along the trajectory away from the Source, we developed new paradigms that blocked us off so much that, with the exception of a very small group of spiritual warriors, this connection is buried in our unconscious minds.

Modern civilization cut off every strand of possible interconnectivity with the Source. Moving away from the Source has exponentially reduced the light and power we could receive from it, thereby darkening our perception, limiting our abilities, and weakening our physical and mental faculties in general.

Uniting with our Source Energy, I believe, is our ideal state of being. Not only does it ensure we move with the interconnected network of life so essential to our joy, well-being, and progress as a species, but it also ensures we are made up of all the qualities of that Source – that we are made in its image. Humanity, I believe, was designed to be a microcosmic manifestation of the macrocosmic Source. In that ideal state, we have everything we could ever conceivably want or need. In that state we share Cosmic Intelligence (much as our individual computers tap into the global Internet), enriching us with all its energy as it flows through us. If this sounds implausible, that’s because we have been cut off from it for far too long!

Over the course of separating from the living light, our whole world has mutated to reflect our crippled consciousness. You can imagine it this way: If you get less and less oxygen, your body will start to degenerate and you will look and act like a dying person. Our world is looking and acting like a dying world. Human life has also become denatured, reflecting our denatured consciousness and environment. To put it in Western theological terms, we could call this our “fall from glory,” and we could understand “original sin” as our separation from the living-light Source.

Consciousness diminished has led to dangerous belief systems, which has led to dangerous choices. This is how a trajectory that veers even a few degrees off course can become perilously difficult to retrieve, like trying to lasso a bird in a tornado. Physically, over time, this has translated into reduced abilities, lack of mental clarity, dysfunctional choices, atrophied physiology, deteriorated blood chemistry, reduced organ power, and loss of essential life-generating connection. Socially, it has translated into corruption, motivated by greed and power, which seek to serve the self, not unity. We are like fruits cut from the vine.

Or, to put it another way, like fish out of water we can only wriggle in desperation for so long before perishing. Instead of thrashing around blindly and perishing, I suggest turning back to the Source. The moment we enter unity-consciousness, we reconnect with the living network of life force energy and rapidly transfigure ourselves on every level. We transfigure our beings into the living-light matrix and prepare for the next evolutionary leap. We were not intended to stagnate or degrade but to keep evolving, synergistically developing all our abilities, sensitivities, strengths, and dreams.

The most fundamental Cosmic Law is that Nature must be free to flow and express itself. Anything that opposes Nature is doomed. It is our nature to be one with the Source Energy. Transfiguration is not about escaping the physical world, as many new-age texts suggest. Rather, it is about recognizing that the physical and the spiritual realms are one, that we are physical-spiritual beings. All matter is alive with energy and spirit, something to be honored and integrated into our whole experince. Our physical bodies are fluid living light.

We have explored how obstruction in the body is the cause of all physiological disease. Illnesses and their symptoms are indications of a profoundly misguided trajectory of thought and behavior. We find that all pain and dissonance can be traced back to the obstruction of natural flow and expression. In modern society, we have gone even further than obstructing Nature; we have utterly cut ourselves off from it.

When we block off our connection to the macrocosmic Source, we, its microcosmic offspring, becomes blocked in every conceivable way. So, we go about developing societies and institutions from that dangerous persepective. We develop substances that block our cells that we call nourishment. We produce TV shows, movies, music, books and magazines that reflect our obstructed mindset and call that entertainment. We cram kids with decontextualized facts and call that education. We spend our days consuming products that harm us and then work endless hours to pay off the debts they cost and call that life.

Every single pathway of our prodigiously complex human system reflects the obstruction. It must, because that’s the Cosmic Law of twin macro- and microcosmic expression. And so the walls above have created walls below; walls without have created walls within. Now we are all walled up, with little comprehension of our pain and anger. We do not comprehend our illnesses, our infertility, our depression, our rage, our addictions, or our longings. Walled up as we are, it’s nearly impossible to see that it is the walls themselves that are the problem. The walls must come down, be dissolved. We must see that they are the origin of our suffering.

Before I educated myself and began to practice the art of transfiguration, I experienced all the pain common to our way of life, including severe childhood trauma, the loss of a parent at a young age, all manner of abuse, heart break, addiction, envy, greed, confusion, fear, self-loathing, body hatred, and countless other programs and conditionings. I was the poster child of the modern world, and every bit as miserable, suicidal, disempowered, and insecure.

There came a point in my life, in my early 20s, when I’d had enough. I knew there had to be another way to live. I set my full focus on it because I knew my life depended on it. I want to share my journey with you because I believe I am just like everyone else. There’s nothing special about me that is not special about you. I have no unique powers that you don’t have. The only thing that is different between someone who dissolves the walls and someone who doesn’t is the degree of focused intent. You have to want it badly enough to stick with it through the massive learning curve, to keep your eyes fixed on the light even when it’s barely visible. Let the law of obstruction be your guiding light, and it will gradually dissolve away the walls of your life.

To practice the art of transfiguration:
1) realize that change is needed;
2) understand that the worldview we were raised to adopt is the cause of our suffering;
3) understand that we are children of the Source, and to journey back to it, we must plug ourselves into its network of energy with every choice we make.
4) apply a paradigm of thought and behavior that is fully sympathetic with the network of energy (aka unity consciousness and the actions that flow from it);
5) promote molecular and energetic revisions to the whole being until transfigured into an integrated body of living-light energy.

The two most popular transfiguration legends are (a) the alchemical change from lead to gold and (b) the transfiguration of the resurrected Christ. Transfiguration can occur in large and small ways, and within all kinds of living substances, bodies, and beings.

Transfiguration is the final result of a three-tiered alchemical process, by which one form is elevated to another: 1 – Transformation; 2 – Transmutation; 3 – Transfiguration.

Though the three terms sound similar, they are different. Transformation indicates the changing of the physical form. It has to do with the lower material forms and the lower natures. Transmutation has to do with an inner change – a change of the substances within, the properties that a being is made of. Transfiguration is the energetic changing of form associated with changing material formation.

The leap is there for us to take, whenever we are ready to reconnect with life. I will write more when I feel better able to illuminate the journey to the Source. In the meantime, I recommend spending time considering what it means to be plugged into the network of living energy. Who are you when you do this? What do you do? What don’t you do? How do your thought patterns change? What does unity consciousness afford you? What fears does it dissolve? How does it heal relationships? How does it ground you and make you more at peace in your body?

Try to release yourself from your belief system for just 5 or 10 minutes each day and envision yourself as a child of the Source, with all its shining qualities, united with the network of living energy. Try it on for just a few minutes, if that’s all you have time for, and see if it doesn’t inspire you to come back for more!

All Love,

The Art of Transfiguration

Thank you for your comments requesting more about my personal journey. It’s wonderful to know we are on the same wavelength. This is a highly conscious group, attuned both personally and collectively to a greater understanding of who we are—striving to fulfill our human potential—rather than shuffling along robotically into further states of mutation, sickness, depression, addiction, and disempowerment. In this spirit, I am more than happy to share my journey with you.

The way I have come to see this process in full scope is as a kind of transfiguration. Transfiguration means a complete change of one’s state of being. This is not just a change of form or external appearance, but of the entire being, inside and out: from the cellular level to the thought level, from our biochemical composition (our skeletal-muscular and cell-tissue-organ systems) to our subatomic wave frequencies. In fact, if it were legal for me to say so, as a non-medically trained healer, I might go so far as to say that transfiguration is the cure for all disease.

Transfiguring the host of a disease in one state of biochemistry/frequency to a whole other elevated state of biochemistry/frequency would result in sure dissolution of the disease. The symptoms (the expressions of disease) caused by the old state of being would dissipate just as surely as humidity dissipates in the desert. Conditions determine disease or wellness—physical, mental, and emotional. Change the conditions; change the manifestation. In other words, transfigure the host and you eradicate the viability of disease.

That is the secret to absolute healing. You can change your being and your life at every level when you know how to think about yourself and your reality. We will explore this more fully later on. In the meantime, just know it is a powerful tool of perception—arguably the most powerful agent of change we have. The art of transfiguration has been buried and lost to modern civilization. But if you are willing to do a bit of excavating, you can unearth it and wield its full magic!

Transfiguration is the elevation of the whole, integrated network of one’s being. One’s consciousness, emotions, physicality, mentality, subatomic wave frequency/vibration are wholly and extraordinarily elevated. This elevation is possible for anyone who desires it strongly enough, without exception. It is my aim to shed light on how to initiate and fulfill your own transfiguration—to give you the tools to the magic.

At first, the idea of transfiguration may sound a bit overwhelming to you, but I feel that we are all up for this. It’s time to stop sitting in the old energy that brings nothing but sadness, suffering, disease and pain. It’s time to take the leap.

Before I go on, I’d like to point out my own personal view of transfiguration. I do not see it as a linear leap forward. Humans today are in a degenerated state. As a species, we are in many ways worse off today than we were in a previous era. I feel we have mutated and become disfigured, and therefore are far from our natural state of being. Transfiguration is necessary to regenerate this lost purity, to return us to our natural state. Only then, once we’ve recovered this lost ground through transfiguration, will we be able to employ transfiguration to advance our evolution.

How do I know this? Because it is well documented that many an indigenous people enjoyed the kind of health, balance, vitality, intuition, shared knowledge, and strong, loving, interconnected communities that we can only dream about today. It was not until they were infected with the “civilized” world’s greed and hunger for power that these communities atrophied. Native Americans had a term for the Europeans’ contagious disease—Witeko, a form of cannibal psychosis, consuming human lives through greed, aggression, and cruelty. (For more on this subject, I recommend reading: Columbus and Other Cannibals by John D. Forbes.)

By studying indigenous peoples, it is clear that the great minds and creators from 10,000 years ago were collectively more evolved than we are today. Somewhere along the way, our trajectory of thought and behavior (outgrowths of our mental conditions and worldview) veered away from human progress in the true sense of the word.

At first, like any slightly off-kilter trajectory, the deviation was not so obvious. But the further afield the trajectory moved away from conditions that supported human and planetary evolution, the more degenerated the results. Like Hansel and Gretel, we have lost our way, and will need all our wits to find our way back home. Thankfully, there is a code we can use to realign our course. It’s called The Universal Laws of Life.

We can reverse the mutation and return to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. In this natural state of being, we will feel the depression and dissatisfaction melt away as waves of peace and joy surge up within us. The best we can hope for from the old trajectory is stimulation, simulated pleasure, and false security. Many of us have always sensed this cannot be right, that there is so much more to humanity and life. But it is not enough to sense it; we have to act on this feeling, to act upon it through transfiguration. We owe it to ourselves, to our loved ones, and to the world around us!

Someone recently pointed out to me that to the average person I sound really radical, but that in fact my perspective is really grounded and rational. It’s remarkable that we live in a world where sanity is seen as radical and insanity is accepted as sane. So I urge you to consider the facts of the modern world very carefully and decide which norms are in fact sane or insane.

This journey requires dedication, discipline, and, most of all, a deep desire to recover our humanity in its natural, healthy state. It requires the kind of vision, passion and hard work required to move mountains—only, in this case, the mountains we wish to move are entirely man-made! But once you move your first mountain, and then the next, you’ll gain strength and momentum. It’s the initial leaps that are the hardest, but they will bring profound shifts in perspective and inner balance that will make the steps that follow far easier—even enjoyable!

Transfiguration leads to ultimate freedom, power, health and wealth—the sort that you carry within you, that you can access through conscious choice, and that can never be taken from you against your will.

In fact, “will” is a key term here. You can will this process into being and multiply its fruits by the power of your will. Think of your will as your focused intent and the actions and thoughts that proceed from it. When your will lines up with the life-generating Universal Laws, you will be able to move mountains. You will be amazed at your own power! And you will feel such love, praise and gratitude that life is beautiful and that you are worthy of it, and that your thoughts and actions can be good and graceful and life-generating. You will look back on your previous incarnation as a sickly host to greed, strain, worry and fear, and you will see how far you’ve come. And then you will set your sights on the next elevation.

The art of transfiguration has always been there. You just had to learn how to work with it.

More to come…

In our beautiful unity,
