Awakening the Feminine
Balancing Force vs Power
by Steve Rother
Greetings, dear ones. I am Merlia.
I have waited a very long time to come in and help to balance some of the energy on planet Earth. I am what the keeper calls a singularity, or singular aspect of what he has labeled as the group. I am the one who holds the feminine aspect of this collective and yes, of Merlin. It is that magic that all of you know and have known over the many lifetimes you have invested on Earth. I personally hold the flavor of light that you call feminine. I have expressed as a singularity to help the power shift that is about to begin on Earth.
Power: The Feminine Aspect
All humans are in rapid motion at this time, so please understand there is no one on planet Earth that is just taking up space. All of you have very specific purposes, intents, motions, and goals that you are moving toward and you hold a place in the new world order. I will be sharing tools specifically aimed at balancing the feminine, the power aspect and will share one with you today. When describing masculine-feminine balance we have many illustrations that we could use, but perhaps the simplest way to think about this is force versus power. Although power is not always feminine, it is a good way to think of it during this transition. So the question becomes; how can you bring your power to the table without forcing it? That is controlled by the feminine aspect within all beings. The feminine aspect is being called into your reality right now to balance the fear that is causing so much separation on Earth. Humans have mostly been in survival mode until now. In that mode the perception is survival of the fittest, so the strongest always seem to win. This was as it should be but step up the vibrational ladder a bit and you will find a balance is possible. This often times has placed masculine above feminine in these ways. Now, is it true? No, of course not. Without the feminine base that the male energy builds on, it would not be possible for either to have either power or force.
The ground work is being laid now and soon the feminine power will emerge in a new way. For now, each will balance the feminine aspects within themselves. To find that piece within you, you must rethink the way you usually react to things. Stop for a moment, breathe, and feel the connections. Imagine just for a moment that you are playing a game, such Mahjong. This ancient Chinese game includes all of these wonderful little characters on tiles, and your job is to find all those pieces that match. The objective of the game is to remove all of the matching pieces from the board. It is a fun game, but actually represents much more than you understand. With the feminine aspect coming in, this is a huge aspect that everyone can start working with immediately.
When you are matching things, even the Mahjong tiles, you are also matching energy. You are constantly experiencing energy forms, whether you are in the middle of hundreds of shoppers in a supermarket, surrounded by thousands at a concert, or are in your bedroom all by yourself. All of these situations are actually very similar, in that they are constantly matching energy. What does that mean? Well, maybe you have a pet living with you, a cat or dog that goes through the house and pretty much rules everything themselves. You are constantly matching that energy, whether you know it or not. Every time you look at your pet, you are checking to see if he or she is okay; you are checking to see if they are matching the energy you are familiar with. With your pet that is in the home all the time, so you have lots of opportunities to play with that energy and refine it. But when it comes to strangers, and being out in the open or seeing new things on your television or online, now you start to match energies in the exact same way. However, it does not always seem to have the same result as with the energy you are familiar with. Consider these opportunities to catch yourself in the motion of doing this and widen your own perception before you react, for that is the biggest challenge, dear ones. You are playing this beautiful game of hide and seek—god hiding from himself, looking for herself and trying to find yourself in the mirror. Well, here we go. Let us give you an opportunity.
When You See a New Energy: Take a Breath and Find Likeness
What happens when two energy forms see each other? It is exactly the same thing that happens when you look in the mirror: you look for imperfections. That is what takes place on planet Earth and is why those that are similar in energy fight more than those of different energy. You are always looking at your imperfections, dear ones, trying to correct them and not even having a clue that your imperfections create the beauty that you carry within you. Nonetheless, you are always trying to evolve and perfect yourself, even while you are in physical form, trying to return to the energy of Home. Absolutely perfect. So, what we are going to suggest to you is this: What happens when you walk into a room for the first time? You look around. Sometimes you are walking through the room, with the purpose of reaching your destination. To better illustrate, let us say that you walk into a brand new room you have never seen before. The first thing that you do is look around; you basically match patterns. This is true with everything, not only rooms that you walk into but especially with people. Whether they are on your television screen or physically in the room with you, you match this energy pattern over and over again. You get in the habit of matching things in a certain way. So, what we tell you now is a little bit different because there is a catch: be aware of it from the very beginning. The first thing we ask you to do when you see new energy is just take a breath then release it, which will help you focus on this new level of light. This is true whether you are matching the energy of a person, situation, or even an emotional attribute. Whatever it is, immediately look for the ways that you are alike instead of looking for the imperfections and the ways you are different. That may sound very simplistic, but when you develop the habit of matching patterns, you quickly find ways to eliminate many of them very quickly. This does not fit, that does not match, and so on until you nearly clear the table. The other thing that you do sometimes brings in energies that do not match. However, your belief system is that you have to be in a relationship with this energy, or person. When the energies do not match the first thing you try to do is find the imperfections, but in the process, you also find some of the perfections. What happens is that you jump into the situation and start to work on those imperfections, trying to change them. Do you re-member what we just said about your imperfections? They are the foundation of your true beauty, so changing them does not always work. Actually, this is at the base of many failed relationships when the partners try to change each other. People always evolve and change at some point. However, it has to be done internally, not externally by another person. So, what we are going to ask you to do is to develop the habit of looking at everything.
Now, let us say that you walk into your house and see a piece of trash on the floor. The first thing you do is say, “Oh, that is out of place. That must be corrected.” Before you pick it up and throw it in the trash can, honor it. Find out what it has in common with you. Maybe it was from your favorite candy bar that you enjoyed the night before. Whatever it may be, find the likeness. Do you understand, dear ones? At this moment, all of humanity is in a movement of separation but you can change that. It is the feminine energy that will change it first, which is why I am here. All along, I have been with what the Keeper calls “the group.” We laugh hysterically when he says that, for he loves to try to give us names and titles. We have resisted that for so long because humans tend to give power that does not actually belong to them including labels. We profess to have no power other than what we can bring out and reflect in you, and that is why we are here.
Look for Similarities
You are going to see a massive movement, dear ones, toward the feminine aspects in many areas of life. We cannot wait to see this happen and, of course, there are events on earth that have been designed to protect the patriarchal society now in place. Just watch how this plays out. Stand firm and proud in your own power, balancing the masculine and feminine energy at every opportunity. When you see that energy, take a breath and look for the ways that it is similar to you before you interact with it. That one tool if used will settle your world very quickly.
The Recessional Wave
Dear ones, we have said very clearly that on planet Earth right now everyone is in a recessional wave. You are moving so quickly that there is a great deal of fear on the planet, but re-member that quite often the fear can be harnessed and used for a singular purpose. You will find yourself in these situations where things seem to be out of control, but do not believe that for a second. You are in much more control than you realize. Five or ten years from now when you look back at this time, you will understand why this had to happen. These things are taking place not just in one country, but everywhere, for you are in a recessional wave. You have been moving forward, yet now you seem to be moving backward so you are resisting it. You are going to change it. The recessional wave will happen so quickly that it will allow you to catapult forward at an even faster pace than you thought possible. Just hold your truth and your power, the energy of who you are, in balance. Do not be timid or try to be forceful, just allow it to unfold naturally. By looking for and matching those patterns that are like you rather than actually finding the imperfections, you will begin a different way of life that will allow you to change this world with your vision.
It is with the greatest of honor that I can greet you in these ways, for I have been in the background for quite a long time. I am very much enjoying the new balance of planet Earth because you have called me in. You are the ones that are ready for the next step of balancing humanity.
I am Merlia. Come up and see me sometime.
Greetings, dear ones.
I am Elrah of Rhythmic Service at your service and today, I am going to tell you a little bit about the different processes of having fun because that is my forté, you know. If you are not having fun, of course, it does not work. It is quite simple, dear ones. You have to put one foot in front of the other, but you also have to laugh once in a while and have a good time with it.
Calling Out the Feminine
Now, you have to meet this beautiful lady by the name of Merlia. What stories I can tell you about her! We will come back to that another time, but she has already shaken up your world more than a few times I can tell you. She has come to planet Earth before, although not for an incarnation. She has dipped her fingers in more than once to balance the energies, for that is what she does so well and why she is back here today. It is because you made a space for her in your hearts. All of you simply opened up, because you wanted something new but you became a little scared of some of this masculine energy. It may seem to be taking over your planet in a big wave, but it is not really happening that way. All that it is really doing is calling out the feminine, which is worth the effort because now humans have the chance to experience a whole new balance.
Now I want to share with you something fascinating about what is taking place. There is a lot of interest currently in the planet you call Mars. Do you know what happened? Most of you were there at some point, which you will find that out from your own sciences. Yes, dear ones, they are going to discover life on Mars but it will be remnants of your own. What took place was beautiful, because at the very end of this planet everyone knew what was taking place. So, they stepped into another dimension of time and space. You stepped into the energy and had to balance the energy in an entirely different way, in order to step through that dimensional reality. The most beautiful things happened because, at that same time, you planted the seeds of life on another stray planet very close to Mars. That is where you are today, planet Earth. Of course, you did not call it “Earth” back in those days, either. However, that all happened in order to make those dimensional changes and have a balancing take place.
Does that mean your Earth is ending? Eventually, it is but no, not for a while yet. I am simply telling you that what is happening now reminds us of those days. You are starting to become aware that you do not exist in only one dimension. Your spirit is not limited to one lifetime on Earth; you are having at least 12 of them at the same time. That is interesting, because generally when you come in and have 12 different experiences simultaneously. You go off this way and become a farmer because you love to grow things. Then over here, you have a beautiful family that is the center of your life. Yet over there, your passion is business and you become the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Although you are doing all of these different things, there is often one piece that remains the same all the way around, which is your choice of a masculine or feminine expression.
The Masculine and Feminine: A New Balance
Now, what happens when you go Home is that you are not really masculine or feminine. You simply took that body, so you had to bring that aspect of it out and play the best you could with that expression of energy. Re-member, dear ones, masculine and feminine are contained within everything. It is the balance that has to happen for you to change dimensions. Why would you want to change dimensions? Well, you might want to go visit yourself in one of the other dimensions. So, it will be very important for you to balance that energy and play it out in a different way. That is the magic of what Merlia is bringing to everyone now. This is actually not only Merlia, it represents the rays of light of feminine aspect. If you were not raised in the feminine energy already, Merlia could not have come in. With the new energy, you can gain confidence. Holding onto confidence has always been one of the biggest challenges with the feminine because it does not express power in the same way.
In your world, you put a lot of effort into trying to have an effect on things. You think to yourself, “There is my power. I can make that work. I can do that, no problem.” Instead, what if you were able to make it work in a different way? Maybe you discover that you do not need to push or be forceful to make an impact. That is what all of humanity is wrestling with right now: force versus power. Although you may consider it to be masculine versus feminine, they are not really against each other but simply out of balance. You cannot really call one good and the other bad because that is not going to work. In essence, they are both good. However, when they come so far out of balance what happens is that you have to walk in circles. This in turn, presents a problem that only you can deal with in different ways. Watch as the new opportunities happening on Earth right now are showing up every day.
Working in Today’s Compressed Energy
Yes, we understand that many of you feel you are completely out of control on Earth. You cannot even stand to watch the news anymore. That is actually not a bad idea because your news is driven by the ratings. So, what would happen if nobody watched? Well, humans have not yet learned to vote with their remotes but they will. Over time, there is a buildup of this forceful energy coming in. Please understand, dear ones, this it is not a fight; it is not one against the other. Instead, it is a balancing; both of them must live side by side to bring the essence of all of humanity to the highest levels that you can now reach. Merlia is really good at that balance, for she is not just feminine. Oh yes, Merlia and I have been around the block a few times ourselves. When she assisted on Earth before, you called the energy “Merlin.” It was even placed into a magical story that was unfolding, all about empowerment. Well, such are the times of Earth again. You are in this compression, which is now feeling rather tight. It is a challenge to move or to feel free when you are that compressed. Although it may be difficult to feel that you have free will, you actually do. In truth, many of you came in to work in this compressed energy. We know it is not comfortable for some of you and many are having great difficulties staying balanced in your own energy. Often, you do not know what to take as your own or be responsible for, but we ask you simply to wait and watch.
There will be lots of opportunities to stand in your own truth and power, the true power, not the force. You do not need to push, for it happens in harmony. That is how it works best and you are learning to do this right now. Perhaps you are learning by first going in the opposite direction, but that is typical of how humans learn on Earth. So do not judge it; do not call it right or wrong, good or bad. Just know that at this moment, that is how it is. What piece did you bring from Home? How can you lend your energy, whether it is in harmony – or in opposition -- with what is being processed? How can you stand in your truth, while still allowing others to stand in theirs? That is what is now taking place. You will find that the collective vibration of humanity actually rules everything.
We know you have places of power and governments, you have all kinds of little things that you have set aside to play your game of pretending to be human on planet Earth. But we also tell you, dear ones, none of it is real—not in the way that you think. However, what is real, is the love. Even the opposite of love, which you call fear, is an illusion created by the shadows of a duality on planet Earth. Now all the shadows are going away because you have stepped out of duality. A lot of people have not caught up yet and are still playing the duality game—the right, wrong, up, down, and all the differences that it is made up of. There is no black and white; it is all shades of gray, dear ones, every single piece. Pick that up and make the highest out of it, then carry your truth forward.
Time for a New Game
Many of you have singular purposes. Some of you have had past lifetimes that propelled you into this one with a very important purpose. You all have something to accomplish, with the different contracts and agreements you promised to bring in from Home. You brought these to the planet by yourself, with a mission to play the game and try to improve it. That is what is taking place. However, you are starting to see that the game as it is currently laid out no longer works. It is time for a new game. Are you ready? You created this game, and you can do it again in ways that you cannot even imagine right now. No, your planet is not going to end. Sure, it will end in its own time but that is quite a while away. You are experiencing a lot of changes on the planet, which is also evolving. And yes, she is coming through a major magnetic change, one that will shift your planet drastically. If you are balanced you will go right through this change. That which is out of balance, however, has trouble. Consider again about the different dimensions. Visit each one of these, as your spirit knows how to make the highest potential out of an incarnation. It is not just a single experience, but 12 different ones at the same time. And in truth, it is 144 …but we will get back to that another time. The most important piece to know is that you can move between dimensions if your sexual energy is balanced.
There is a motivation for many humans on Earth, especially when they find out there is going to be a big rush to balance your energies. Oh, and Merlia will be called upon again. She is here with important information about how to walk through this process, and bring out the power of the true balance, which is probably the most important point. You know, dear ones, she is a little resistant to coming in. Why? Because you tagged her with a feminine energy. Why would that be difficult for her? Because she does not like the separation. It is very simple. When you call her “feminine” you believe it means she is not carrying masculine energy, but that is not true. Merlia carries a tremendous amount of masculine energy, but she understands how to balance it. She knows how to bring forward a certain part, at the best time to use it at its highest potentials. That is a feminine energy. It is the true birthing energy of planet Earth, and the base creative energy held within that beauty. Find that within each of you. Dare to stir that one piece, and to try to balance it. Also, discover where you are out of balance in other ways. You can be out of balance in the feminine energy, just as easily as you can be out of balance in the masculine. So look for it, play with it. Ask for assistance with the balance and you will receive it.
You are never alone, dear ones, and we wish you would stop trying so hard. We know you are playing a game that is very difficult to understand. We realize it sometimes seems to take a turn completely in the opposite direction that you intended. Although sometimes you cannot feel the wind at your back or you cannot hear us, do not forget that we are here and will never leave you, ever. You are part of a large family of light and we celebrate you every single moment. You are part of us and that will never, never be lost or truly out of balance.
I really enjoy talking with you, dear ones. Now that Merlia is here we will work together from time to time as we have in the past. She and others can help to balance much of the energy for everyone and bring a new balance to Earth. She will open up the possibilities and help to remind people who they truly are, instead of all the illusions that you have learned to trust. Watch what lies ahead, dear ones. Do not become confused by all the chaos in front of you, for there is a lot of it. Watch for the light, watch for your light. Balance it as you can and watch for the opportunities to move inter-dimensionally, because it is a new game and you are just learning how to play it now.
It is with the greatest honor I ask you to treat each other with respect. Nurture one another at every opportunity and play well together.
I am Elrah of Rhythmic Service.
The word Espavo is an early Lemurian greeting : “Thank You for Taking Your Power”
Connecting the Heart
By Barbara Rother
The first step to creating true friendship in your life is being your own best friend. I have always said I enjoy my own company. By this I mean I am never lonely or bored because I enjoy being by myself. I respect who I am and try not to give in to the human attribute of being critical of myself. I know the importance of honoring the person I am today and give myself credit for always wanting to improve myself. I also know the significance of the words from the English author, John Donne,” No man is an island. No one is self-sufficient; everyone relies on others”.
Working from home, sometimes I feel disconnected from creating and maintaining friendships. I have caught myself saying, “I don’t have time to be with friends. I am too busy.” I know friendship is not only an investment in time but an exchange of ourselves. The rewards can be amazing. Technology can be one way to connect to others but it cannot be a substitute for real-world interactions. I keep in touch with others this way but there is something uniquely special about looking into each other’s eyes, connecting hearts and hugging a person while sharing your life.
Friends can develop through working with others, common interest, children, hobbies, etc. One of the most important factors affecting our well-being may be the quality of our social relationships. It is a treasure when you feel you have a person with whom you can confide in with total trust and understanding. A friend should be a reflection of souls. They are not someone who always has to agree with you but someone who’s opinion you value and they appreciate yours. When you spend time with a true friend you should feel elevated about the time you have spent together. A person is attracted to you because of how you feel about yourself. Self-love attracts a positive life.
People come and go. They’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.
I love to read. I find this to be true with the books I read and with life. When I come to the end of a favorite book where I have become so involved with the characters, I savor the last few pages not wanting our time together to end. Then I pick up a new book and start a whole new relationship with new characters where I am lifted into the world of the reality of the story being unfolded. All I have to do is glance at a book I have read in the past and feel a connection with the people I was once so involved with. It is like a distant memory of an experience of living along side of the people I read about. But I know that I do not want to read this book again because there are so many new adventures with new people waiting to be explored with new books. Still, these characters with their detailed lives with always stay a part of me as I have invested my time with them.
If we are fortunate to have a friend for all our life it is a rare blessing, one to be treasured. Usually, a person will connect at a certain part of our life experience we are going through and you both will slowly drift away as you move on to the next step of your path. Friends are a reflection of you and your experiences. True friendships are about admiration and learning from each other. I have had many dear friends in my life since childhood and throughout my adult life. Sometimes I wonder why we have not kept in touch but then I know that we were together for that part of our lives. We are not the same people we were then. I honor their friendship and know it is alright to move on. Still there are other friends who remain a part of our hearts forever. We will just know when we are in each other’s thoughts and call each other. Time or space does not matter. We pick up where we left off.
Romantic love can bring one of the most important friendships ever. I have been blessed to have Steve be my best friend since we were sixteen. He is the one that I can share anything with. I respect his advice as he does mine. We laugh, live, work and play together. We have grown individually as people and together as life partners and friends. Relatives can bring us a true union. When a friendship is shared within that bond it can be a very deep connection. Steve and I have found that now that our two sons are adults we are enjoying getting to know each other as friends and not just parent-children roles.
I heard the following words the other day that summed it all up to me. The “F” words:
Friends, Family and Fun: All three are keys to maintaining happiness.
With love and light,
