fire and waterThere are many discussions about what this Wave of energy is going to do for us, and what can we do to prepare for it.  So many are waiting with great expectation for this energy to arrive.  When in reality, humanity and the Earth have been preparing for this for the past 26,000 years. It’s been an ongoing process, and the energy has always been here.  This Wave X energy, which I referred to as Azoth in my first article on this subject,  is first and foremost an internal event.  “As within, so without.”  It is a major amplification of what has been coming in for some time.  There are some misconceptions that I feel should be addressed, so we don’t have a repeat of spiritually awake people becoming depressed and confused, like we had in 2012. Here is a link to my first article….https://lisarisingberry.wordpress.com/2015/07/24/wave-x-is-not-a-mass-ascension-event-its-a-step-in-the-entire-process-of-evolution/


internal waveThis first Wave of energy flows through our very core internally.  It changes us from the inside out, beginning with the heart and moving outward.  Trying to manipulate the outer world will do nothing during this initial process.  From a spiritual point of view, this is the most exciting phase!  As this wave passes though us, our hearts will be weighed, just as in the weighing of the heart ceremony in the Egyptian Book Of The Dead, only we are not passing into the after life, we are passing into the Golden Age.  This energy of Azoth will pass through everyone that is in a human body, and all will receive the same amount.

Now, here is where the differences occur.  The actual frequency of your heart energy will determine how much of this Azoth energy you will have access to.  Wave X/Azoth is an “equal opportunity employer,” but the amount of inner alchemy you have participated in will determine the outcome for each person.  This is why so many will be disappointed because they will either not know that this energy wave has moved through them or they will feel very little has changed.

This energy will give you the ability to do your inner work at lightening speed.  What used to take years to get over and transmute can be done in months!  However, we have to do the work.  The Wave does not do the work for you.  So, how do you prepare for this on an inner level?  By doing the same inner work you have already been doing.  Meditation, forgiveness exercises, practicing non-judgement etc…  We should have been preparing for this energy from the beginning. This is first an inner event before it works its way to theouter.

It’s all about you, and it’s all up to you.  You are the center of your transformation, and you are the star of this show.  This is the biggest misconception of this Wave, in my humble opinion.  It’s much easier to try to get ready for something the way we have always been taught to do, which is manipulating our outer world.  This will not work on this inner event.


outer waveOnce this inner wave moves through Earth, which is more ready than the average person, the fun begins.  The new energy of the Earth sets the standards that humanity must live up to.  This energy moves from the core of the planet to the outer experience, and anything not in line with that frequency will go.  This includes people!  We are the ones that will be changed by this energy hitting our hearts, and we are the ones that will change the current systems in place.

We are moving from feeling so disconnected from the planet, from its elements and from each other to feeling this inner connection to everything!  Imagine throwing a piece of trash on the Earth and actually feeling your body getting sick, just as you made the Earth sick.  This is the kind of connection we are moving into, and it will not be pleasant for all.

Eventually the person littering will learn or will get so sick they will have to leave through death.  This is because they are not in line with the new frequency, and they are not doing any inner work to fix that.  When we feel the connection to others it will be harder to act out of greed and power as our current systems operate.  I see this energy forcing the current leaders to make the necessary changes or they will have to leave.

We are the ones we have been waiting for, and we will be the ones in the physical that will make these changes – what ever they may be.  This wave will not just remove the current systems, we will be the ones to do this work.  But only after the inner shift is complete.  This energy moves from the inner to the outer.  How long will this take is up to us.

How do you prepare and more importantly, how do you look at the act of preparing?  Do your inner work and follow your heart.  Our inner work is the key. Nothing else will work without this key.    The outer cannot be fixed without the inner being prepared.  You are preparing a place for this energy to exist in the outer.


when endThis is most likely the most pivotal time in history, and how we place our focus is imperative.  Do you choose to worry about the outer or do you focus on the inner first?  Personally, I will be in my inner refuge preparing to change my outer life as the Earth does the same.

It’s an ongoing process and will never end.  This energy will continue to increase. It will not stop, so in a sense there is no preparation needed for an “end.”  When you prepare for some thing, it’s an assumption of an ending in the future – the great result achieved. This is not the case with evolution.  You must constantly be in the state of preparing, because you will always be moving to the next higher level of existence.  So, should you think of your preparation as a one time thing?  Not with this event. It needs to become a way of life, not something you prepare for because the end is near.

We are now in the energy of infinity.  There is no ending or beginning.  There is no preparation, but a new way of life.


inner connectionAs humanity is changed from the inner they will be inclined to live a different way in their outer experience without much effort.  Resistance is futile….these two experience will become ONE.  If people don’t change, they won’t feel good. They will not be in balance with the Earth.  When a person is aligned with the inner transformation the outer experience will merge within their very being.  It will be so easy to make the necessary life decisions that we make on a daily basis because we will be in balance between the inner and the outer, and we will match the frequency of the Earth.  This gives the teaching of “the two shall become” one a multidimensional level of meaning.

Much love to all,

Lisa Rising Berry

I Believe God Wants You to Know by Neale Donald Walsch

On this day of your life I believe God wants you to know…

…that there is a solution to every problem.

Nothing is insoluable. Nothing. Do everything that you
can to avoid the temptation of thinking that what is
facing you now is insurmountable. That is simply not true.

You cannot see the solution, of course, if you are
convinced it is not there. So you must have great faith
in life. Do you have great faith in life? Now would be a
good time to show it. Smile. Relax. It’ll all be okay.

You will not have to think more than a second to
know exactly why you received this message today.

Love, Your Friend …

A Post by Jeff Brown

Shame comes at us from many different directions — families of origin, the guilt-tripping religious world, the competitive marketplace, the collective consciousness itself. I know of very few people who move through the world with a healthy sense of self, with a real appreciation for their divinity and inherent magnificence.

And the spiritual bypass movement just makes things worse for those who are seeking answers, bashing the ego in its entirety, repressing the shadow in the name of a version of enlightenment that is more self-avoidant than expansive, and even characterizing the body as spiritually sub-standard, as though the divine made a mistake putting us in human form.

This cycle is often perpetuated by the artificial-forgiveness community, who diminish those who dare to work on their unresolved feelings by telling them that their feelings are an illusion, their experiences are mischaracterized, their stories tiresome. Just jump out of your process and forgive your wrongdoers — put their process ahead of even your own.

Levels and levels of madness, that leave spiritual seekers entirely confused about the value of healing the “pain body” and elevating the self-concept. Let’s get this straight — Shame is not an illusion. Self-loathing is not an illusion. Our stories are not illusions. Abuse and neglect are not illusions. And the need to heal our hearts and elevate our self-concepts is essential to healthy functioning. Pretending things aren’t real doesn’t make them go away. Facing them does.


Short Break

I just wanted to let you know that I am taking a short break from the daily card readings. I fell down last week and even though I have pretty much recovered from that, except for some lingering bruises, I have not been feeling myself. Some of it may be related to the intense energies coming into our planet and that are expected to increase until they peak on or about September 28th. I know my body feels these energies big time and I seem to have increased pain with my arthritis and fibromyalgia. I will however post anything I think is interesting that comes in my e-mail so that the site isn’t left completely abandoned. I will be back when I can. Much love to you all and thank you for your continued support.

Symptoms of the 2015 Frequency Shift By Martin

Symptoms of the 2015 Frequency Shift
By Martin


This article by Pod focuses in on some of the symptoms people have been feeling and are continuing to feel as the electromagnetic energies in and around the planet increase. This piece is especially timely given we have, according to Dr Simon Atkins in response to a question we put to him, just recently entered into Phase 2 of his frequency shift ‘Wave X’ timeframe. Indeed, he further confirmed this just yesterday. Please see here for the overall timing of Phase 2 and Phase 3 that culminates with the predicted energetic peak of late September / early October.

As such, those of us who are sensitive to these heightening energies can, in tandem, likely expect to experience an intensification of some of the symptoms that Pod lays out here. Her article will I hope serve as a reference going forward and also provide a space for people to share and discuss their experiences in the days and weeks ahead.

“You said earlier you’re here to observe the Big Event, can you tell me what it is?”

“Sure, the core crystal of your planet is moving into alignment with a very distant object. It’s an alignment at an intergalactic level,” the little guy said, flatly.

“What’s the object the core crystal is aligning with?” I asked, curious.

“The Big Guy, head honcho, mister big, the main man, center of the universe, the beginning, the grandfather of all grandfathers, get it?” he replied.

Bruce Moen, The Gathering

It’s clear that something wonderful is happening on Planet Earth and that it is having a profound affect on people. Some more so than others. This article is simply an attempt to alleviate the anxieties that symptoms can create and to allow people a space to share their own experiences and solutions. You are not alone.

To illustrate this, I’d like to share with you here examples of some of the symptoms and experiences that you and others may have been experiencing…

Has your life fallen apart or changed drastically since 2012? Have you experienced great loss and a change of direction? It seems that those souls who were perhaps off course have had their lives changed to bring them back on course for the shift. If that change has perhaps created great grief and fear then be assured that this has been for your greater good in helping you to clear your emotional body so that you can hold more of the higher frequencies and bring to a conclusion your soul lessons in power.

Perhaps you have experienced changes in diet. Have you found that your body is more insistent on deciding what you can eat and drink and what you cannot tolerate? Do you have a sense that whereas you used to eat primarily for enjoyment, now you definitely need to eat for nourishment. The neurotransmitters in the body and brain will work much more effectively if they are cleansed and detoxed. Food grade Zeolite and Diatomaceous Earth are low cost, effective methods of helping with this process.

Have you been experiencing spots and rashes, aches and pains? Sometimes the locations of these can be really telling. A spot on the end of your nose is probably a root chakra issue. Aching legs and feet when grounding deep into the Earth can be alleviated by foot massage. I use oiled, black basalt stones from the river to massage sore spots around my heels. Knee problems likely signify an ego issue – the left one, grief and the right one, anger. There is a chakra behind the knees that only activates when you kneel in surrender. As the frequencies increase the body will clear any and which way it can. I sometimes get pressure on the side of my head and a few weeks ago I felt as if someone had buried an axe in the top of my head.

Do you need more sleep? Is your sleep deep and dreamless? If it was an Olympic sport, would you get a medal? Are you often very tired even though you may not have done much to cause it? Dr Simon Atkins has, in interviews, encouraged people to ensure they’re getting more sleep during this time so overall health, nervous system and immune systems are better equipped to cope not only with the heightening energies but also in interactions with others.

Life Is Happening to Me……. do you experience days where you feel very lethargic and it seems that you are mentally ‘offline’? Your body perhaps feels like a dwarf and everything moves slowly and takes effort. This is the energy of the human operating system (O.S.) and your consciousness will have dropped in vibration to clear unconscious energy. At such times, it is very important to ground in Earth/Heart energy. Your energy field resonates at a low frequency so as to release programmes and emotions that are no longer relevant to the person you are becoming. I sense that people who do not clear these programmes will have them activated by the rising frequencies and so we will likely see increasing craziness. Therefore, don’t fight this process…it is beyond your conscious control and the only way out is through.

I Am Life Happening……. then of course, there is the result of the clearing when you are blessed to be in your soul O.S. Life is just marvellous, you can observe events without polarised emotional reactions and time has ceased to exist as a 3D concept. It is almost impossible to think of the past. This is a great experience and makes all that you’ve experience worthwhile. The likelihood is that you will drop back down again, but you should know that you have not done anything wrong. It is simply that lower vibrations will pull you down again so that they can be released. This does not mean you have a bi-polar disorder.

It’s time to talk about time. How are you experiencing time? Do you have days when time does not exist? When you live in a bubble of now where there is no past or future? This is the soul O.S. This is when you have won the lottery because as time ceases to exist so does all fear of, for example, not having enough money in the future.

Have you had periods of really intense grief, anger or fear? This is happening as the increasing energies activate unconscious stuff that desperately needs to be released. The more unconscious it is, the more powerful and extreme it will feel. Remember that emotion is Energy in MOTION. Accept it all. It will pass and every episode will ground you deeper and deeper into the Earth. Then, as your tap root extends, you will be able to hold the higher frequencies.

All sorts of weird and wonderful things are happening in the head area……. our brain is a receiver of consciousness so as the higher energies come in your brain has to evolve and activate parts that were previously dormant. Think of it as a muscle that needs exercising. Sometimes this can result in major headaches, sinus problems and even vertigo. At the start of my own intense process, I ‘saw’ a bag manifest in my energy field on the left side of my head. Over several days this bag filled with a brilliant gold light, which then, through a tube, entered the left side of my head (which is my masculine) and filled that side of my brain. Gold is the colour of the masculine (silver is feminine) so I deduced that I needed an upgrade. If this has happened to me, it is happening to others who perhaps do not see it.

You may also be experiencing increased psychic and intuitive ability, amazing meditations and a deep knowing about certain events. Please don’t allow your ego to subconsciously think that this makes you so special that causes you then to become anxious about realising your mission or careless about taking care of your human needs. This happened to me….. I had such amazing esoteric experiences that I became careless about my human affairs, believing that my Higher Self would not let anything bad happen to me. Ha ha ha! My Higher Self had the last laugh because I lost everything. My home, my life in Thailand, and most of my belongings. However, this does not matter any more as I needed that experience and the grief to bring me back on track. A sort of fast forward if you will.

Perhaps you are seeing white or gold lights flash at the corner of your eyes? This is, we believe, soul energy. If anyone else knows otherwise, then please do share.

Feelings of hopelessness and despair accompanied by a sense of not wanting to be alive any more. This happens when a part of your ego is dying. Try and stay with it, and if possible really go into it. The more you experience it, the faster it will shift.

If you have been experiencing any of the symptoms I have laid out above then I warmly invite you to share these experiences in the comments below and/or, for the benefit of others, suggest particular therapies and remedies that have helped you in your process.

“We create the situations and attract into our lives the people and circumstances we need to heal and evolve.”

A Message From Bashar

A Message From Bashar that I received in my e-mail just now. I don’t have the link to this exact message, but I’m including the link for Bashar’s Youtube Channel below the message. For those who are not familiar with Bashar, he is a multi-dimensional being who brings forth messages through Darryl Anka. Here is his website:

Trusting your Timing

We, as our Higher Self (Over-Soul) actually creates Time (as we experience it). Our Higher Self exists outside Time and Space. It projects portions of itself into specific time/space holograms (time/space matrixes), which we then experience as an incarnation. So, from the point of view of any one incarnation, there is time, there is “past, present, and future”. But from the point of view of the Higher Self, there is no Time. It’s all happening NOW. It’s just one big Eternal-NOW. So keep in mind that our Higher Self is creating the actual “time” that we are experiencing in a linear fashion.

When we intensely want to do something now, and it is easily possible to do it, no problem. We just do it.

But if we intensely want to do something now, and it is NOT possible to do it NOW, we are then at a critical decision-junction:

We can choose to interpret this as “I am not getting what I want.”
Or, we can choose to interpret this as “I always get what I want. If it’s not available now, then there must be an excellent reason for this.”

Which of these choices we make is critical in determining the outcome, as this choice is equivalent to selecting a BELIEF, and we then experience the outcome aligned with that belief.

If you choose to interpret the situation as “I am not getting what I want.”,
then, sure enough, you will continue to not get what you want.

But the alternative is this:
Choose to interpret this situation (of not being able to do what you want to do NOW) as “I always get what I want.” “I always get what I want. If it’s not available now, there must be an excellent reason for this.”

You see, often our Higher Self “arranges” time in such a way that we do not get what we want when we initially want it, only because it wants us to first accumulate certain experiences, certain skills, certain appreciations, certain connections with other people, certain awarenesses – FIRST! So that when we do get to experience this thing we want, we will then be appreciating it and enjoying it on a much deeper and more profound level.

So when you want to do something and it is not immediately available, REMEMBER: Your Higher Self is merely delaying this experience, so you get some other experiences first, so that you may enjoy and appreciate this thing you want EVEN MORE, when you do get it.

So when you want to do something and it is not immediately available, TRUST YOUR TIMING.

Do not buy into the belief that “I do not get what I want.”

Instead, remind yourself:

“I always get what I want.” If it’s not available now, then my Higher Self must have some experiences it wishes me to have first, so that when I do get what I want, I’ll be able to enjoy it even more. I’ll be able to enjoy it on a much richer, deeper basis.” – BASHAR


18 Tips For Healing Anxiety From Toxic Relationships by Doreen Virtue

18 Tips For Healing Anxiety From Toxic Relationships


Being in a relationship that is safe and mutually respectful is a normal human desire and we all deserve to have those qualities in our relationships. However, all too often we blame ourselves for relationship problems, rather than simply acknowledging it is toxic or dysfunctional and whether it is salvageable.

Here are 18 tips for healing anxiety caused by toxic relationships:

Tip 1: Don’t Focus On Whether Or Not Someone Likes You
Instead of being concerned about whether someone likes you and focusing on how your heart pounds and if you feel butterflies when you’re around them, wonder instead whether you get excited because your chemistry is reacting to meeting another dysfunctional person. Ask yourself instead, does this person have most, if not all, of the qualities you want in a relationship?

Tip 2: Be Your Own Best Friend
One reason why people stay in unhealthy relationships is the fear of being alone. One reason for this is because you haven’t developed a best-friend relationship with yourself. Try to reach a place where you actually enjoy your own company. And if that doesn’t help, know that being alone is healthier and preferable to being in an unhealthy relationship filled with hostile drama.

Tip 3: Stop Expecting Someone Else To Fix Your Problems
You are responsible for whatever needs fixing in your life, your financial debts, your career, taking care of your body and so forth, not your partner, your best friend or your parents. You will feel much better about yourself and your new confidence will be very attractive.

Tip 4: Know Your Boundaries And Stick To Them
We are constantly sending out hints to other people about how we want to be treated. These are called “boundaries,” meaning your deal breakers for what you will and won’t accept. How much importance you attach to honesty, respect, and reliability are just as important as personal space, time alone, or how much physical affection or romance you require. When you uphold your boundaries, you don’t allow others to manipulate, guilt, or control you, and your inner self will thank you.

Tip 5: Fill Your Life With Positive People
Make a point to initiate a friendship with someone who is consciously improving his or her life. Hang out with people who are accomplishing their dreams, and they’ll take you along for the ride. Worried they won’t want you around? Think again: successful people love to teach and mentor others, provided that you’re kind and appreciative toward them in return. Having this person in your life as a point of reference will highlight areas you need to work on in all of your current relationships.

Tip 6 Make A Wish List Of Your Favorite Personality Traits
Listing desirable traits is helpful in directing your focus when you meet new people, and you’re less likely to get pulled back into old relationship habits. What are the top 5 traits you would like to see in your relationships? These could include honesty, being a good listener, loyalty, being kind to animals, or being appreciative. By identifying your own priorities, you will be better able to see which areas you need to work on specifically in all of your older relationships.

Tip 7: Be A Good Friend To Keep A Good Friend
Surveys show that close friendships are more equated with life happiness than marriage, so these relationships are very important to our well-being. Basic characteristics of a good friend include:

Trustworthiness – keep your promises and have integrity.
Protectiveness – defend your friends if you hear gossip about them, and help them when they need it.
Confidentiality – never gossip about your friends or reveal their secrets to others.
Non-competition – striving to be “better” than your friend puts strain on the relationship.
Mutuality – conversations give both people time and attention to share. Friends listen to each other.
Availability – we’re all busy, but good friends make time for each other.

The most successful friendships, in fact relationships of any kind, will incorporate all of these characteristics. You may need to pull away (temporarily or permanently) from people who do not honor these basic tenets of a strong friendship.

Tip 8: Trust Your Inner Warning Signals
Your body is innately sensitive to other people’s energies and intentions. Check your own inner warning signals, which will alert you that you’re with a toxic or drama-addicted person. Some warning signals you may be getting are:

– You feel used, because it’s a one-sided relationship, with you doing all the giving
– You feel guilty, like you owe the person something
– You feel angry at him or her and at yourself
– After the person leaves, you feel drained and tired
– You have a desire to avoid the person.

Trust your intuition here. These feelings won’t be present in a healthy relationship.

Tip 9: Write A Letter To The Person You’re Upset With
Even healthy relationships can hit a rocky patch from time to time. At times like these, it often helps to write a letter to the person you’re upset with. Pour out your feelings, and hold nothing back. Then, in a ceremonious way, burn the letter. You can also send a more restrained version of the letter to the person, after waiting a day or two for a cooling-off period. This way, your letter will reflect your ongoing feelings instead of reactive emotions. It can be the starting point for a mutually beneficial conversation that will get you back on track.

Tip 10: Stop Constant Interrupters In Their Tracks
If someone is constantly interrupting you when you are speaking, stop them early on with a firm “Excuse me, I wasn’t finished talking” If you touch the person’s arm at the same time, the impact is even stronger.
If the interruption is also a correction you can say “Sometimes I feel that you are more my teacher than my friend. I’d prefer to have conversations where it’s just us sharing our feelings.” If their style annoys you, it annoys everyone else too so you are doing them a favor.

Tip 11: Just Say No To Guilt Based Requests
If you feel you are being manipulated and have no choice to comply, stand firm. They might cry, threaten to hurt themselves, say that no one loves them, or remind you of the times that they helped you. But by telling guilt-trippers no without guilt or excuses, they will either find another victim to harass or will realize that these methods aren’t healthy or effective.

Tip 12: Don’t Walk On Eggshells Around Angry People
If someone displays their anger in a physical way, LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. However, if it is someone who just gets mad at the slightest provocation but rarely takes responsibility themselves, then release the fantasy that you will find the winning combination that will finally make them happy and peaceful. They most likely will need professional therapy. Tip-toeing around until they calm down doesn’t help anyone.

Tip 13: Give Unreliable People Clear Instructions
The next time an unreliable person makes an appointment with you, explain that your time is valuable and if he or she is not there within 15 minutes of the meeting time, you will need to leave. Back this up with actually leaving so that when they invariably turn up late they will get the message.

Tip 14: Stand Your Ground
Accusatory people are always looking for a fight, tell them firmly that they are mistaken in their accusations but do not engage in an argument or wander off-topic. Do not engage in blaming wars or you will get into an unending battle.

Tip 15: Stop Trying To Rescue Victim-Martyr Types
Since whatever advice you suggest will most likely be met with “I’ve already tried that, it doesn’t work.” It is best not to invest a lot of time into trying to provide a solution to their problem. Once victim-martyrs sense that you are out of ideas to help, they will move on to bending someone else’s ear about their current problem.

Tip 16: Be Honest About Hurtful Words
When someone says something hurtful it is important that you let them know it. You can say “I don’t believe you meant to hurt me with the words you chose to use, but that’s what happened.” Or, as soon as the person says something hurtful, issue an immediate, honest reaction such as, “Ouch! That hurt!” The person may explain that he or she meant something entirely different than what you heard, but they will also most likely be more tactful in future.

Tip 17: Keep Your Adult Identity During Family Visits
If you feel like your family relationships are recurring nightmares, it’s likely because you’re fighting with fragments of the past. The arguments are on automatic pilot, and no one is really present or conscious at the moment. Remember, the point isn’t to change the other person, or get him or her to apologize. The point is to help you deal with family dynamics in healthy ways. We can’t control other people’s reactions, only our reaction to them.

Be sure to carry an object that reminds you of your current life and helps you feel empowered and proud of your accomplishments. It can be something related to your profession or a hobby. This will help prevent you from reverting to your 12 year old self during the first signs of arguments with family.

You have many choices for dealing with hurt feelings, including detaching, and telling yourself, Well, it’s just their issues; or having compassion for them because they probably don’t want the conflict any more than you do.

Tip 18: Remove Yourself From A Relationship When You Notice A Red Flag
Take your time to get to know someone before you fully commit to a relationship. At the first red-flag, such as not honoring a commitment, or showing a lack of respect; extricate yourself from the relationship immediately before getting any more involved.

As a compassionate, openhearted soul, you want to give. It’s in your nature to care for others and ensure their health and happiness. Occasionally others may take advantage of your kindness which is why it is so important to enforce your boundaries in all of your relationships.

It may feel uncomfortable for you to put these rules into effect, it might feel like you are placing conditions on how you will help people, but if you refuse to do so, you’ll deplete your own energy reserves very quickly. It all boils down to respect. If the people in your life truly care about you, they’ll respect your decisions. The title of my new book is a reminder for you – Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle!
