Summary of Brenda’s November 29, 2014 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at  http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman:  Perhaps you were a bit testy the past few days. Such was merely your new 3D segments emphasizing that they didn’t join your totality to live in fear, care taking or victim roles. Only those who exited their cocoon are allowed to fully dimension hop, frequency shift and/or time travel – as many of you are now doing day and night. 

The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for  www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: “How Will NEW YOU React This Holiday Season?”

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.

Dear Ones,

Perhaps you are not feeling the love and joy you anticipated. You feel as if nothing is interesting, different or new.

Do not fret or become discouraged. Such ‘blah’ feelings are merely your physical body shifting.

All phases of your being shift in an expected fashion. First, spirituality – you believe such is true. Second, emotions – you sense such is true. Third, physicality – you know such is true.

Those of you who exited your cocoon are most likely in your physical stage.

This Universal/global transition was long anticipated and planned to the last detail. That is, for the first to awaken – most likely, what you term Baby Boomers or those now of earth of a similar age – to build a bridge to the New Age. A bridge your children would cross and your grandchildren would destroy.

Interestingly – and perhaps to be expected – the always belligerent and courageous Baby Boomers decided to create a new plan. One in which Baby Boomers crossed the bridge – and so you are. But you cannot remember in any part of your being the next step for you are now creating that step. Slowly in your mind and very rapidly in Universal terms.

So it is that you are creating a new plan day by day, minute by minute.

You have grasped and lived the big pieces you anticipated such as: moving beyond shoulds and have tos; remembering how to love yourself; creating a life most compatible for your new being; and moving beyond old fears. Even if you have not completed all those stages, you know what you wish to do and why. And because of that, you are marching through a major holiday season with new thoughts and actions – pleased with yourself and all who dare to be.

But you do not understand what is happening beyond that. Where is the joy? Where is the fun? You continue to push and prod others to help you experience it – yet you feel flat, lifeless, dull or whatever word you wish to use.

Such is true for you are creating something far beyond what you expected. You are off the anticipated path – not in fear, but in courageous joy.

It is as if you are a scout master who anticipated following the path of former scout masters only to discover a new and better path. Even though it is a better path, this new path is filled with unknowns to all including those observing and sending you Universal energies.

We relish your courage and wonder at the joy of it. But such observation does not create a distinct path for you. You are exploring areas never before explored. The theme prior your entrance to earth in this life was that each adventure would build upon former adventures until new earth was reality for all.

You Baby Boomers, new beings or whatever term you wish to label those now feeling lost within themselves, are jumping generations to create a new world not initially planned for this time.

Such rapid growth is not at all wrong. For you are discovering that all aspects of your being are stronger than anticipated before entrance to earth in this life time. But you have NO map or path to follow. So you are frightened within your physical being – at the same time you are filled with joy and anticipation in your spiritual/emotional beings.

Will you stop or slow down? Perhaps. But given the determination and findings of new you as you sometimes slog through a path that feels as if it is encased in slippery mud or wet cement, you will continue as long and as far as you now wish.

Your physicality is holding up much better than all anticipated. Such is true because you took the time and effort to build your new being with care and expertise.

Is it possible you could ‘fry’ your physical being with your new path? No. You are ready.

Granted, some may return to the plotted path you created prior to earth in this lifetime. But enough of you are smiling within your being to continue the bridge crossing to New Age.

Your joy will return once you find secure footing. In truth, your joy will radiate from your being as if you received an A+ for a very difficult course you did not think you could master.

Know that you are capable. Know that the Universes are marveling at your tenacity and courage. Know that you moved earth to New Age faster and more efficiently than any – including you – thought possible.

Allow yourself to feel a bit dull and lifeless as your physicality adjusts to your new path knowing that you have completed the work or joy – depending how you wish to label this effort once thought to require two earth generations. Glory in you and all that is. So be it. Amen.

The Unsung Secret of Thanksgiving

From Nick Polizzi of The Sacred Science…enjoy!

The Unsung Secret Of Thanksgiving

Posted by

Whenever Thanksgiving comes around I flash back to second grade and those construction paper Pilgrim hats we used to cut and paste together. In those days, this pre-Christmas holiday meant nothing more to us than a four day weekend with a ton of food and, if we were lucky, some early snow to sled on.

Every public school in America teaches some rendition of the Thanksgiving story, but as often happens over the course of history, the facts have become skewed and much of the essence has been lost. While this late November holiday gives some credit to our Native American predecessors, it tends to overlook an important detail that is at the very heart of tribal culture.

During that cold autumn of 1621, the unfathomable hospitality that was shown by Wampanoag and Pawtuxet tribes to the Pilgrims was not a random act of kindness. It was actually the modus operandi for most pre-Columbian tribal communities when encountering strangers in need. To the early European settlers, this warm welcome was absolutely unexpected and is why we newcomers still celebrate the unlikely stroke of good fortune – but we’re missing a bigger point.

Upon encountering the frail and bewildered explorers from across the sea who were dying of malnutrition and exposure, why did the Wampanoag women so openly share their knowledge of the local flora of New England? Why did Pawtuxet men teach these desperate foreigners the tricks to hunting local game (which, by the way, was more often deer than turkey)?

First Thanksgiving copy

It comes down to one word – respect. In Native American communities, one of the most fundamental teachings is that we must have unwavering respect for all living things, including other human beings. This single morsel of innate wisdom has been relied upon for millennia to steer communities in the direction of good, rather than fear-fueled mishap.

At some point in our lives, most of us are taught to be true to ourselves, to have patience, and to ALWAYS help others in need when we can, regardless of who they are. Yet, we often forget about this last item during our young and mid-adulthood, especially in today’s fast paced, career-oriented environment. Why?

Too closed off for compassion

In a properly functioning tribal structure, each individual has built in support – children are supported by parents who are supported by grandparents who have an intimate link back to the grandchild (a sacred triad!). The elders are not shipped down to Florida to spend their golden years detached from family. They are instead elevated to an honorary status in the household or village and relied upon heavily for their wisdom and ability to steer future generations in the right direction. In this system, everyone has someone to lean on and someone to care for.

By contrast, our western world is beginning to show alarming symptoms of a civilization that has forgotten how to care for itself. We are not looking out for one another as families the way we used to. We know more about the nuances of sitcom characters and professional athletes than those of our own loved ones. I have friends that could rattle off the starting roster for their favorite sports teams at the drop of a hat, but couldn’t tell you the hopes, dreams, and fears of their own nieces and nephews. Who are we without the support of the parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents – our true role models?

We get caught up in a daily grind that dilutes our perspective and warps our priorities. This isn’t a new story – survival has always been the name of the game – but our ancestors had something that many of us don’t. They had a close-knit family unit during their times of struggle – not only to give well seasoned perspective in times of strife, but also to keep an extra pair of eyes on the treasure that matters most – the young ones.

Something to celebrate:

More and more of us Westerners are looking to native cultures for insight on how to achieve a more conscious, connected, and healthy existence. Whether it’s through a shamanic practice, native nutrition (like the Paleo-diet), or another sacred wisdom tradition, these resurgent ancestral protocols are so innately “right” for us that they can be effective even when singled out and applied to an otherwise unnatural lifestyle.

The next step for those of us who want to take it to the next level is to begin looking at the whole picture, particularly the triangular family format of our ancestors, and apply this to our own lives.

We’re all in this thing together and what better time than now to let those you love into your heart? This is a holiday of extreme gratitude, so if you have the good fortune to be sitting across the dinner table from your dear ones tomorrow, join us in celebrating the elders who have always watched over us, and the young ones who are new to this awe-inspiring adventure called life!

“They’re my children. All children are my children. I teach them the songs and whatever else I can. That’s what Grandmothers are for – to teach songs and tell stories and show them the right berries to pick and roots to dig. No better job in the world than being a Grandmother!

– Leila Fisher, Hoh Tribe

“Like the grasses showing tender faces to each other,
thus should we do,
for this was the wish of the Grandfathers of the World.”

– Black Elk, Sioux Tribe

“Everything I know I learned by listening and watching. Nowadays people learn out of books instead. Doctors study what man has learned. I pray to understand what man has forgotten. ”

– Vernon Cooper, Lumbee Tribe

Truly yours,
