“What you are about to embark upon is a commitment equivalent to the Rites of Passage into the Revelations of Love as taught in the ancient Mystery Schools. The initiates in ancient Egypt frequented the inner chambers of the temples and pyramids to access universal wisdom for transformation. As an initiate of the twenty-first century, you are utilizing the chambers of the heart and the fires of everyday life for your alchemical transformation.
Do not take it lightly, but neither fear the process for it is one of empowerment, meant to expand your heart, mind and soul. As we begin the process, I shall walk in front of you as a teacher and guide. After you gain your footing, we shall walk side by side as companions. Eventually, you will step into your own Mastery and I will be delighted to support you in all of your creative endeavors.” ~Black Madonna~

I share this passage from the Black Madonna Diaries which is so relevant to where we are today:
“Madonna, it’s clear to me that I’m spending almost as much time in the Dream as I am in my current physical life. How can I tip the balance toward the Dream?” I ask.
“There are many things you have already done which you can expand upon,” Madonna muses. “For instance, you have disengaged from most of the things humanity finds so important. You live a comfortable simple life, but you do not have aching desires for more material goods and services. And yet you live in beauty, with ease and grace. Politics, the news, the financial market hold no interest for you. Therefore, they do not tether you to mass consciousness. You are open and communicate freely with the nonphysical. So in general, you are already more aligned with the Dream than you realize. The only veil remaining is the one your mind holds in place. We are simply circumventing its perceived hold on life.”
“Now for the most pertinent clue that will shift things very quickly for you,” her tone changes dramatically. “Where do you think this Dream is? You seem to always go to a specific place. It appears you go to the near earth realms where many lightworkers are speaking about creating a new earth. Indeed, that is happening, and you are a part of it. As the vibration of the old earth expands, it will eventually melt right into the new earth realm with more ease and grace than you can imagine. However, your Dream is not out there. Although your Dream is connected to the new earth, it is not one and the same. Your Dream is not outside you. Your Dream is unique to you and it is inside you. This is where you need to go. You need to go within.”
My eyes pop open with the realization of this. A smile spreads across my face and a giggle erupts. “It’s been here all along, hasn’t it Madonna! It’s right here within me. There is no place to go. Oh how could I have been so fooled.”
“You haven’t been fooled,” Madonna shakes her head. “Well, not directly. Your old belief systems did not allow for your current expanded sense of reality. So it came through in the only way it could. Now that you know the difference, you can proceed differently.”
“I still don’t understand the relationship between my Dream and the new earth.”
“Ah yes, I haven’t been very clear about that have I?” she pauses in thought for a few moments. “Actually it’s all still a bit muddled because the new agers are still caught in separation. They believe the way to create a new earth is to separate it from the old earth. So they’re creating it somewhere out there. Whereas you are creating within from a place of inclusiveness. Your Dream includes all beings.”
“But I don’t see any greed or competitiveness in my Dream. Isn’t that exclusion?” I ask.
“Those things are not present in your Dream because once you see through the eyes of God, you no longer see those things. It’s not that you are separating yourself from them. They just don’t exist in the vibration of Love, and Love is the foundation of your Dream.”
