Rebirth of Annabelle Drumm the MC

Sydney Corporate Event MCs Master of CeremoniesAn Eclipse in ancient times was always seen as a moment when each could take time out to be introspective, asking the heart what would bring the most joy when the sun / moon emerges out the other side. A bit like an opportunity to create a new personal world. This time I thought I would join the challenge.

Earlier this month I mentioned a simulcast I would be hosting for Fine Music 102.5 called Live from the Joan. This was performed in a theatre which could seat around 600 but was live broadcast on FM radio and the internet to a much larger audience. I was a co-host last year with two other Presenters and as a co-host you work with the others in a joint effort keeping energy levels on an equal par.

Hosting on my own this year meant I could do things my way. With the theme for the event focussed on young performers I chose to bend my interviews with each of them around building their career as a professional musician – something many young performers are interested in.

We all had a lot of fun and the audience were superb! So very generous and responsive to what was happening on the stage, I was blown away. I enjoyed it so much and was reminded of how much I loved working on the stage all those years before I gave it up to have children. I think the heart was yearning to go in this direction again.

Getting personal

Indulge me here for a moment because my personal story might help you look at your own personal story.

I have to admit for most – no, I would say all – of my pre-children career I fought valiantly to stay out of the spotlight. International dance tours offered I would find excuses to turn away from, starring television roles I would sabotage. I loved doing TV commercials where no one would recognise me. I ran a dance company where I was just one of the line up.

This extended beyond my own performing too. I married a man where I dedicated all my energy to growing his confidence and his career. Being a Mother was about nurturing young souls, giving everything I could to raising them to the best of my ability. Being an Agent for 15 years was about making my Performing artists – other people – stars in their own right boosting their profiles, negotiating hard for better rates and conditions, increasing their income. Being a Coach was about taking each client and moving them up the ranks to a better position too.

All this was about putting other people ahead of me. It took me a long time to question, why do I put others ahead of me? Why am I happy to fight for their right to stand in the spotlight yet shirk it myself?

Where did this crappy mindset come from?

Looking back as far as I could remember, one major turning point for me happened in early school years. In primary (elementary) school everything was good. I had great teachers who encouraged me to be big.

Moving to an intermediate school – the equivalent these days of say grades 6 and 7 – meant I suddenly needed to learn to ride a bike and ride it several kilometres in peak hour traffic on the roads (no kids allowed to ride on the footpath in those days) to and from school. In the same week I also now had to ride in the dark with a puny little lamp on the front of my bike to and from ballet school which was even further away.

The new academic school required a uniform. Uniqueness was not acceptable and there were strict rules to follow. I was no longer outstanding.

The mental stress of such a dramatic change freaked me out and put me in bed for 6 weeks with a mysterious “tummy ache”. Eventually when they managed to get me back to my new school it was half way through the term and all the kids had made their new friends so I was trying to break into these new circles leaving me open to bullying. Not a great start.

Here’s where the fun really begins…

In the school musical the next year, still without many friends, I was one of the dancers in the line-up with everyone else.

During rehearsal close to opening night, one of the teachers took me aside for a very serious talk. She said “Annabelle you are dancing really big and that is standing out. We need to you dance smaller please.”

I found this really puzzling. “But shouldn’t I be dancing the best I can?” I asked.

“No,” she said, “you need to dance smaller or you’ll make the other kids feel bad. That would be awful, wouldn’t it? Then their parents will feel bad because their children don’t look so good so everyone will feel bad.”

Oh, my god! For a little girl who was already bullied and had been struggling to make friends this was the last straw. I went home feeling really disturbed. How could I possibly not dance the best I could? This didn’t make sense.

I asked my dad for his opinion. He was an orchestra Conductor and deep in the professional show business world so I respected his viewpoint much more than a school teacher. To my surprise he agreed with her.

“If that’s what the teacher wants you to do, then you do it.”

I’m not saying that was the only moment in my history I was told to dance small. A teacher said something similar to me in high school as well just to really put another nail in the coffin. Amazing.

I’m not saying it’s all their fault either. Our reactions are what make our lives, not what is thrown at us. Other people might rally against such comments and go on to becoming big stars regardless. My reaction however, was to be a “good girl” and do as I was told.  As a result, in adulthood I always berated myself when it came to standing in the spotlight.

It’s vain

It’s egotistical

It’s selfish

and, the killer of them all…

It makes other people feel bad.

Starting to see the light

Decades have past since then. My coaching clients have taught me so much – the irony of that always makes me laugh. One client in particular, a number of years back, was constantly berating herself for loving beautiful things and admiring beautiful people. She would tell herself it was shallow, superficial, materialistic. Her mother used to hassle her for this and she was embarrassed to tell anyone. As we worked through the coaching sessions, she started to give herself permission to do what brings her the most joy which was to admire the aesthetic.

It seemed to make all the difference in the world. She started to dress better, joined a new design company all about the visual where she was mixing with others who were in love with the visual. It suited her. It brought her joy. All areas of her life started to click into place.

I can see that now and how it relates to my own crappy limiting belief. I’ve had other reminders along the way such as being thrown into a performing job I did not feel prepared for where I was out front singing. Good grief! An ex-dancer singing. Oh well. There were no complaints and even a few thank you’s so it can’t have been that bad.

What it showed me however, like a major epiphany, was that being out front of an audience was not a vain thing for me to do. It brought me joy because I had the opportunity to lift the vibe of a whole group of people all at once. I knew how to do that and could feel their vibe lifting and lowering throughout a performance like flickering flames in a fire so I could almost play them like an instrument. Pretty weird.

Apparently great speakers do that all the time. Lift people up, then let them subside a bit before lifting them again, like a well written symphony. Great sales people do it in a sales pitch as well, just for a smaller audience.

Getting back on the stage

So what if I started to do more MC work? Would you give me a chance?

I’ve started to build a new page to promote my MC and Compere services here. I can host on the stage for Awards nights and concerts but also facilitate more casual styled weekend workshops, staff bootcamps and outdoor events.

http://www.kitegirlcoach.com/sydney-conference-after-dinner-mc-host-presenter-compere/

I will add more info to the page as I go along.

Do you know anyone who needs an MC or Compere for their up and coming event or concert in Sydney?

Even standing in for someone else at the last minute is a possibility.

Click here to contact me if you have an event coming up or can introduce me to someone who has an upcoming event in need of a host.

I look forward to raising the vibe of your audience. 🙂

Presenting Live from the Joan

This year Fine Music FM will be doing their annual live broadcast with a theatre audience at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith, Sydney. I’ve been asked to be the Anchor host which I know will be a lot of fun as I co-hosted last year. We’ll be featuring young Classical and Jazz musicians from Sydney including pianist Diana Babajanyan, Duo Histoire, The Streeton Trio and Frances Madden and we’re looking for a loud and enthusiastic audience to cheer them on.

Want to come along and hang out with me? You can reserve your seat at http://finemusicfm.com We sold out last year so book nice and early to make sure you get in.

Here’s the promo for the event. See you there!

Judith Coates on Energy, ETs and Dementia

You know me. Usually I am looking for a deeper message, a more advanced message. I like to challenge myself. Today though I am in a comforting, nurturing mood. The last couple of days I’ve had an emotional roller coaster which always gets me curious. Then on the various forums and group social media pages I am a part of I see the same emotional roller coaster played out. For me, when this happens, I find myself crying uncontrollably for a while, then I’m exhausted and highly critical, then I let it go. For others, they play it out in anger and abuse, trolling others with unnecessarily harsh comments that damage those who are not aware of what is going on and take it as an attack.

Then we discover that 3 days earlier (this is becoming a common occurrence) there was yet another big solar flair and we can sigh in relief – ah, there you go. That’s where it came from.

Sometimes it is astrology, sometimes harmful substances in our local area – I can smell it in the water or sometimes see it in the air – the important thing is to use the reaction of curiosity rather than just going with it like it’s beyond your control. Notice how you are behaving, see how it affects others, ask yourself what might be causing it because chances are it has not as much to do with your personal circumstance as  you think. Look around and you will find more and more we react together. We have peaceful periods. We have crazy periods. This too shall pass.

So, back to the nurturing mood, I came across this channelling by Judith Coates whose channelled entity is Jesus or Jeshua. For those who think that is impossible I usually ask, do you really think he stopped talking to us 2000 years ago? Do you think he was not advanced enough to come back or to pass on a message?

Of course I can’t guarantee Judith’s version of Jesus would be the same as mine for each of us interpret the messages we receive based on our own beliefs and life experience. I do like Judith’s work though and, with its comforting messages and gentle encouragement, I find this perfect for what I need today.

Enjoy

Annabelle


Energy, ET’s and Dementia

by Judith Coates. Click here to visit her website: http://www.oakbridge.org/articles.php?aid=272

Beloved one, in your human experience you are creating a vortex of Light energy, energy that can be measured. You have scientists who take sensitive readings so that they can study the energy that the body emits, and that the brain emits.

Always, even when you lay the body down to sleep and think that you have turned off most of the systems, not all of them, you are still emitting energy. You are still energizing the brain. It is still working. You may come back the next morning and remember where you have been—in a dream, you call it, and yet it is as real as what you are experiencing in the waking time. The brain is still emitting energy, because you are that energy.

There are times when you have gone to see the big screen and have been caught up in the drama where you are asking, “Oh, is it going to work out? Is he/she going to find the love of his/her life?” And you are almost at the point, especially if you are in the 3D movie, where you feel that you are right in the action…you are almost ready to scream, “Watch out!” because you are caught up in it.

You are playing out in “real” life a most wonderful drama. I have said to you that if you do not like the drama that you are in, stop, breathe, choose anew, because you are the one who is choosing and then judging what you feel the reality—lower case “r”—to be. And all of the time you are drawing the energy from the Reality —capital “R”—to make the drama that you live in.

Now, some of the drama that you live in is happy. It is creative. You enjoy putting the colors upon the canvas. You are making a most wonderful canvas of this life; moment by moment you are putting together the various colors, the vibrations, the aura that is you.

If you were to stand against a white wall and then move away from it, you would leave your imprint on the wall. There is still an energy picture on that wall. It may be for some of you a flash, and then it is gone, or you may look at it even later and see an outline of an energy that has been there.

That is how strong you are, how powerful you are, how alive you are. If you were to place a deceased body up against the wall, it would not have the same effect. But you, because you are breathing, living, emitting energy, taking in energy all the time, giving off energy all the time, you leave an imprint that can be seen.

There are times when ones look at you, and then they look away and can still see you, even though they are not actually looking at you. You have done that, and then you look back very quickly to see, “Are they still there?” Yes, they are still there. It is fun to play with energies.

Beyond the individual, there is a group vortex which is being created. It is being strengthened. You are calling other ones who have the same desires, same interests, to come and be with you so that you can play again, play in this dimension, as you call it, to be able to know the true joy of Being. That is the only thing that truly is worthwhile, is to know the joy of Being, to know that Who you are, the Energy that you are, was not made to suffer.

I did not suffer on the cross. I know that a lot has been made of my suffering. I did not suffer. And if I had suffered for you…well, I cannot do it for you. That has been a story.

Now I would speak with you about an expansive topic: the ET’s, as you call them. You have seen some of the language that they are leaving for you. You have looked at the pictures of what are known as circles, but they are not always circles, in the crops, and have wondered, “How did they get there? What is their message?”

The message truly is a mind to mind message. It is not something as concrete as your various languages that you have on holy Mother Earth. I know that you study the sounds that are in various languages, and you learn to speak other languages. You learn the sounds and equate them with meaning as to what the name for a table would be, what the name would be for a mirror, a tree, etc.

You learn the various languages, some of which are easier or more familiar to learn, and then the linguists among you say, “Well, let me see about some of the lesser known languages.” It is fun to do, and it is mind-expanding. It is moving to the next step where truly you do not need sound for the languages.

I have heard you searching for a word. “I’ve got it right here. It’s on the tip of my tongue. I’ve got it right here, what I want to say to you, but I can’t quite find the word for it.”

Well, you are moving to a space where you will not need words. You will not need sounds. You are moving to the place of mind to mind interchange of ideas. When you get to the place where you are mind to mind, all you will do is think of whatever you want to say, and the other person will pick it up as a picture, perhaps, as a knowing, and you will not have to go through the laboriousness of trying to find the right word and the right nuance of word.

It will be something that you project. In truth, you are already doing that as you are standing there trying to think, “Now, what is her name? I know her name. It’s umm, uh….” And then maybe a day or two later…“Oh, yes, it’s Genevieve.” Or maybe it comes to you in the middle of the night.

You already are doing mind to mind communication. You are already sending the picture of what you are thinking, but you have not yet come to the place of trusting that the other person is going to pick it up. But there are some times when it does happen, and you say, “Oh, wow, that’s really great. Yes, you got the meaning. I couldn’t quite get the words for it, but you know what I mean.” Then the other person says, “Yes, I know what you mean,” and they do.

The intergalactic Intelligence is a thing which you say to be of the future, as you understand linear time. Now, in truth, time is not linear. All time is contained within the concept of a sphere. What makes it seem to be linear is: you think from this point to that point within the huge sphere of understanding, and what connects those two points is a line; therefore, time must be linear, but it is not.

You are most engaging to watch. Know you that every time you have a thought, it does not stay within what you would call the brain. It does not. It is emitted, the same as your vibrational energy. That thought goes out, and that is why quite often you know what someone else is thinking even before they say it. That is why you are in sync with someones more than with others. You are on the same…well, you have called it the same wavelength. You are on the same wavelength with each other. Therefore, you do not need the words.

Then, because of generational teaching, you have been taught as the small one to make sounds and to change the sounds a little bit perhaps to say the right sound that somebody else will interpret to mean whatever is the commonly shared meaning of it.

And yet—as you have seen with your four-footed ones—you do not have to say any sound. In fact, they do not even hear what you are saying. Your sounds are just like a whole lot of vibrational whatever. They are mind to mind. You think of something, and if they are in the mood, they will understand it. They wonder sometimes why you are not a bit brighter to get the message that they are trying to give you. “What takes you so long to pick up the mental picture I am sending you?” Then they dance around and yip-yap and say, “Pay attention. I’m sending you this picture. I want my food right now. I want to go out. I have to go out,” and you had better let them out at that point.

They are doing what is truly your next what-you-will-call advanced step. They are doing mind to mind, and they do wonder why sometimes you are so slow to get the picture, because they are sending it, and they have to send it over and over and over, and then finally she pays attention, or he pays attention, and they may get what they are sending.

You are evolving to the place where you are not going to need the sounds, except the happy sounds of laughter and the happy sounds of music, sounds which bring you joy and allow you to resonate with the vibration. That is why many of you listen to the music that resonates with you.

Now, I know that there are things called music that are quite discordant. Every generation seems to go through a time of doing its own particular sounds. They groove to the certain sounds, and it is truly a groove. It is in the brain, and it is a groove, and they are evolving to the place where they are actually going to leave that behind as well. But meantime they are having fun with it.

On another note (smile), as a whole, as a collective, you are moving to the place where you will not have to worry about and judge dementia. Know you that the ones who are experiencing dementia are actually evolving? They are the ones who have given up being tied into sounds, words, and the meaning of sounds. They are being judged by society as being not as bright as they were earlier when they were very rapid with the sounds. But in truth, the ones who are into the place of dementia are not having to be so mental. They are de-mentia: they are out of being mental, and they are actually moving into a space the human race is evolving into. The sounds will not be necessary. The various configuration of sounds will not be necessary, all of the complexity.

You see, what you are moving towards is the remembrance of Home, the remembrance of Allness, the remembrance of Oneness that does not need all the various steps to make sense. You think now with the small ones that they have to learn the sounds, how the sounds go together, how there is an inflection if you are asking a question, or if there is a certain way of wanting to express something really strongly, etc.

They are learning all of the inflections, and it is quite a task. They are already at the place where—if you were to call it this—they are already at the place of dementia. They do not have to use words. When they are hungry, they let you know. When they want company, they will let you know. When they want the wetness changed, they will let you know. How do you know it? You know it by the picture that is sent to you. Or you may look at the clock and say, “Well, it’s probably time they might be hungry.” You have already gotten the message.

If you have emigrated from another country and have had to learn another language, at first it may not feel quite right to the ear, but you persevere with the new language, and you store the sounds of the former language in memory, and if someone speaks to you in what was the former language, you can understand the sounds and see what the meaning is. But again, it is more mind to mind than even the sounds.

Most wonderful experiences that you make for yourself, even in something as seemingly basic as language and sounds. But to communicate with the intergalactic ET’s and what they are trying to say to you, it is mind to mind. You look at the designs that they make and get a feeling. You sit with it and ask, “What is this about?” Ideas will come to you.

For the most part, the designs that are made in the crop circles are ways of saying, “We are here. We are here with you. You may not see us,” because they know how to manipulate energy. They know how to either bring it together in very dense form that you would take in with the sensory eyes—you would see the form—or not. For the most part, they move about in amongst you, and you do not see form. You may feel something a little bit different, but then, for the most part, you are very busy attending to the world so that you do not ponder it too long. But they walk amongst you and, for the most part, you would judge them to be friendly—for the most part.

There are ones who like to play with drama, the same as ones who are activating the more solid bodies. So they may move certain objects that you have in the house, and you may say, “I don’t think I put it there. Well, I must have put it there, and then I forgot I put it there.” Well, maybe not. Maybe they know how to manipulate energy and put it somewhere else. And then you wonder what is going on. You may say, “Well, the cat did it. The dog did it. Of course, they moved it.” (Smile)

You are moving into a most wondrous time. There have been many messages of change, and you are feeling change. I commend you for the intricacies of the realities that you bring for yourself, because you are doing the most wondrous day by day advancement, as you see it, in your technology. Your technology is getting very small. You can carry it around in the pocket. When it dings a little bit, you say, “Oh, I have to look at it.” Or it may actually do a ring tone of some sort, and you know you are being called to attend to something. Even if it does not make any sound, you take it out quite often just to check.

Know you what a miracle that is, that you are creating? And it changes. From year to year it changes so that you have to get the new model, right? So you are having fun with your inventions, your technology. You do this in order to keep the mind happy, or not so happy sometimes.

We have spoken in other times of the ways that the mind wants to keep you involved, how everything you see, you want to analyze and understand what the meaning is and take it to the mind. Then you remember after a while to take it to the heart and see what the deeper meaning is, what it has as feeling, what does it feel like?

You will do the same with the language of the circles. What they are trying to communicate to you is, “We are here. You are not alone. We are here. We have intelligence. We are intelligent.” It is a communication that is very basic to the feeling nature: “You are not alone, we are all from the same Source.”

Even the ones that some of you have said in a preliminary judgment are of negative energy, this is not really true. The negativity is in the eye of the beholder. The basic message is, “We are here; you are not alone.” You think that you are encased in a body, and maybe there is energy that goes out twelve inches or more, because ones can photograph the body and see the aura. But you think that is all there is. That is not all there is, and that is what they are trying to say. “We are here with you.” They want to be recognized; they are trying to give you the message that you are not alone.

You see, for humans, because there is a delineation of body—in other words, this is where the body ends— you feel alone. From the time that you are birthed, there is an underlying message that you have understood and have grasped for yourself: that you are alone and you have to make your way in the world. You have to learn what is acceptable. You have to learn the language. You have to make decisions for yourself, and hopefully those decisions will be good. And there is a loneliness that all of you feel. It goes with the territory of human expression and experience.

So ones who are a bit beyond that are letting you know that you are not alone. And when you sit in the quietness…I know that some of you have gone and actually sat in the crop circles and been able to feel that you are not alone.

And as you have understood, the interpretation of the energy is to that one person who is interpreting it. If they have a certain inclination towards fear, they are going to see whatever energy there is in that way. If they have been, as you would put it, lucky enough to be raised with a circle of friends, they may be more open to having a wider circle of friends.

But they are here, and they are doing what you are evolving into, the place where you do not need the specificity of sound and language, where you can be as the four-footed ones and just hold that picture of the food dish and say, “This is what’s important to me,” and hopefully the human is going to receive the message sooner or later.

It is an exciting time to be here as human. I know, because I had several lifetimes as human, and I know how it is to feel alone, to feel apart; not as a part, but to feel apart from others and to feel that you have to make your own way. In one way, that is true, because you are making your reality —lower case “r”—as you go along, but at the same time you are connected by the divine energy of wholeness with everyone you meet and with ones you do not see.

It is a time now when things are changing, and it is an exciting time to know that truly you are moving beyond words, beyond language, beyond the mental and the mind to the place of the heart, knowing that, truly, That Which you are and That Which everyone you see, is an extension of the true Reality. It is exciting.

So, hang on, enjoy the ride.

So be it.

Brad Johnson channels Adronis about The Event

Brad Johnson, the Reality Whisperer is one who channels a number of different entities. I liked this very simple and easy to understand video about The Event which many are talking about. What is The Event? Some speculation talks about the 3 days of black from the Sun as described in the Bible (must check the reference on that, I think it’s Revelations), others say it will be blinding white, others say it will be energetic and not seen at all. The results, however, will be very physical and “real” to us including being able to see what has been hidden or what we have refused to see before. This will lead to much tipping back into balance the power that has been hoarded by a few who take advantage of the many, a re-hash of the financial system, the welfare system, the healthcare system etc. leading to an easier and more prosperous way of life for the majority.

My personal view is that once we care for all people, the stress of survival will drop. With stress gone, violence will drop away, less laws broken, general health will improve and the level of creativity and innovation will escalate way beyond anything we’ve ever seen on the planet before. See this article on the effects of the Universal Basic Income for more examples.

It has been mentioned by a number of channels, Mercredan included, that what we are going through right now is a separation which sort of polarises the population. Mercredan explained it like a separation of train tracks. People with closed minds who wish to continue on living the way they are now will have less opportunity to jump tracks to a different way of living later on. The tracks will widen so that, in 3 years time, the other tracks you might like to jump to are no longer visible and it will take a tremendous amount of effort and commitment to try to reach. (Not sure what happens if you jump but then can’t find your way to the other track – that might be a stretch of the analogy.)

So working on yourself, just as the channel advises in this video too, is a priority. Opening the mind, opening the heart, releasing all your baggage, revenge, jealousy, anxiety, frustrations, feelings of unworthiness etc.; finding compassion for others and pulling up your sleeves to take action making the community around you safer, tidier, more peaceful, considerate and pleasant for everyone who lives within it.

There is so much focus in mainstream and social media about separation between groups of people we forget we are a single species.

Treat your fellow beings with respect and the freedom of free will. You can point out consequences but usually need to let them learn this for themselves (providing they are not actually harming themselves or others, obviously).

Give up pushing your opinions on people who have not asked for them. Don’t paint yourself as a hero out to help people when you’re really just impinging on their privacy. When they are ready to be helped they will seek it or will draw in the person whose intuition prompts the appropriate gentle, supportive action.

This blog is filled with so many ways you can do your self improvement. Have a browse through to find a single lesson you can work on today.


In this video the channel, Brad Johnson, describes his perspective of what The Event will be like. It’s not a one off event but the channel feels it will be a notable one. It’s a lovely presentation I think you’ll enjoy.

Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine Part One

I seem to be a lot calmer about the wider Shift of Consciousness now that I have been exploring it for some 7 or 8 years. Mercredan had said I was nearing the end of that exploration and I now have a contract/agreement to write a book about it to help others understand. I’ve started the book maybe 4 times now but not found my flow so, I once again, set it aside until the inspiration comes as I know it will.

My new topic I seem to be hungry to learn about is the gender issue, the sexuality issue. There seems to be so many people in the world out of balance. Not enough of them accepting of both sides to themselves, the masculine and the feminine we all have inside. People who get turned on by pain or being defaecated on. People who totally reject the gender they chose before they were born. Heterosexuals who reject friends who choose to be Homosexual. Homosexuals who reject friends who are Bi-sexual. Not enough acceptance, love or fluidity between the Yin and Yang we all possess.

Mercredan has said in a number of our sessions over the years that I rely on my masculine traits to be “successful” in the business world. I do this, I think, to emulate my father who was overly dominating in our household. I watched him stomp over my mother so many times and must have decided as a child that if I was “strong” like him then no man would stomp on me.

Yet, Mercredan was saying I veered towards the masculine because I thought the feminine was weak and that I was wrong in believing so. He also inferred that if I found the strength of my feminine I would be far more effective in my work, my relationships and every part of life.

Awesome. OK. So, where’s the answers?

Ah! They must be found. Mercredan has never spoon fed me answers. I must seek them and come to my own conclusions.

So, I think the place to start is to get a clearer idea of the definition of both Masculine and Feminine. Let’s start with the Masculine.

What is Masculinity and what are Masculine traits?

This video I did a few years back had some basics in it.

Each gender has characteristics which can be used in a positive and negative way. You’ll see this in the readings of astrologists and experts in zodiac as well who say hey, you’ve got this characteristic in your sign or on this birth date. It can be used for benefit yourself and the larger whole in this way. It can also be used to harm self and the larger whole in this other way. Your choice…

For now, I’m not just looking for a generally “manly” set of characteristics though. Let’s see if we can define the ultimate man. The evolved man. The Divine Masculine.

Search results brought up this superb article which I will copy for you. It has come from Spiritual Counsellor Sunyata Satchitananda. Here’s the link to the website and I will post at the bottom of the article too as the content is superb.  http://sunyatasatchitananda.com


The Divine Masculine

by Sunyata Satchitananda

What is the Divine Masculine?

The Divine Masculine represents a spiritual, psychological, archetypal ideal—the best and most inspiring, elevating, and restorative aspects of masculine expression and manifestation in the universe. “He”—along with the Divine Feminine—exists on a transpersonal, universal level that manifests through an individual’s psyche and becomes thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.

As multifaceted, spiritually-embodied beings, we each have a complex psychological and emotional constitution that produces one’s inner health and outer reality. Each one of us, man and woman, carries within our psyche both masculine and feminine archetypes. From these influences come all our conscious thoughts, plans, desires, goals and agendas. They intertwine and cooperate to produce a uniquely personal expression and experience of life.

For those seeking an expanded understanding of the Self, the Divine Masculine is not a distant, detached, jealous and vengeful male deity. The Divine Masculine (along with the Divine Feminine) acts as a shining mirror of the Self, revealing aspects that need compassionate attention and support to become one’s highest potential.

For a man reading this, you may wish to expand your understanding of masculine archetypes and see how these are showing up currently in your life and then consider evoking a more fuller, or “higher” expression. Men who consciously assimilate Divine Masculine energy express higher levels of awareness and spiritual states of being along with greater satisfaction in life experience. Women reading this are equally served by contemplating Divine Masculine qualities while seeking to integrate these into their inner male expression.

God, King, Priest, Warrior, Lover, Sage

The Divine Masculine comprises a group of archetypal energies that drives thoughts, emotions, desires, and behaviors culminating in one’s sense of right-relationship, or “flow” with life and feelings of satisfaction and well-being. There are many archetypes present in the psyche—six have been chosen to represent those with the strongest influence on conducive psychological functioning and one’s psycho-spiritual evolution. By regular conscious feeding of these archetypal energies—weaker aspects are nurtured to fullness.

A Suggested Practice

Those seeking to discover and “grow into” their expression of the Divine Masculine will want to:

  1. Contemplate what the “fullness” of each expression means to you.
  2. Contemplate how these currently show up in your life. Look for areas and ways you are already embodying #1.
  3. Don’t look for the places you are deficient or lack in the fullness of the archetype. Only look for what you ARE doing.

As you acknowledge and accept what you are already doing, you will notice more places where you already are, or are beginning to, embody the fullness of the archetype. Its like seeing in a dark room, after some time your sight “adjusts,” or expands, and you see more of what was already there. As you contemplate each archetype, you will notice more and more areas where it already exists in your awareness and behavior. This is due to radiation of the archetype energy spreading out in a “blossoming” or unfolding effect within the psyche and happens whenever archetype energy is accessed and stimulated. Contemplation also strengthens the awareness. Two things are accomplished—you see what is already there, reinforcing what is presently integrated, and you strengthen what is beginning to emerge in your awareness, behavior and ability.

Any aspects of the archetype that seem “new” can be integrated by imagining what it would feel like to think or behave in this new way and see what shifts of thinking and behaving that produces. As you do, look for circumstances or opportunities that could be positively affected by adopting these higher concepts, principles and motivations and seek to enable their presence.

The Archetypes

1 – God

The God archetype is the transcendent, connected-to-all-that-is, aspect of self. It is the part of us that resonates with transpersonal harmonious love for everyone and all beings. The God archetype is the domain of spirituality, mystical experience and intuition.

A man expressing the God archetype in its fullness feels like: he is synergistically connected to all that is and has the confidence of “knowing” resulting from this connection, has spiritual balance and orientation, and emanates unconditional love to all in his sphere of presence.

His power is in his presence—his spiritually centered awareness focused completely in the present moment. He embodies Love, compassionately expressed to whomever is within his sphere of presence.

When with him, you find yourself inspired with new ideas and inspired connections—creating new experiences. He stands for and contributes to the furtherance of the divine-right of happiness; equally for all races, genders, and sexual expressions.

He leads by inspiring: creativity, beauty, and truth seeking—fulfilling the highest ideals and principles, through example and not aspiration alone.

He is spiritually guided, supporting and sponsoring: creation, transcendence, and resolution in all its forms. He seeds thought forms and ideas—releasing ownership for the greater good.

A man in the fullness of the God archetype shows up as unconditionally loving, inclusive, open, welcoming, heart-centered, spiritually focused, supportive and inspirational.

2- King (Father)

The archetype of the King actively plays the central role of order and blessing, benevolence and fertility, strength and balance. While the God archetype seeds thought forms and ideas, the King births them and actively looks to their growth and further manifestation into existence —being the steward of these.

The King archetype governs the domain of material-manifestation, family, “kingdom”—your sphere of influence including your relationship to individuals and physical locations: i.e. home, neighborhood, community, etc., material wealth and abundance.

The King archetype has the sterling attribute of “unyielding strength of character” and is relied upon by all in the realm to not yield to less noble, self-serving interests or compulsions. Thusly, the King inspires and unites the realm to follow his leading. He combines this strength with intelligence, right-action and wisdom.

Being with a man who is in the fullness of the King archetype feels like this: He is supportive and nurturing of the well-being and easeful participation and happiness of those he engages with. He is a stabilizing and calming influence in all circumstances. By his balance and “potency” (strength, effectiveness) others are comforted and influenced to imitate his example. His demeanor is “seasoned” and carries wisdom with it, not adolescent impulsiveness.

The King archetype is complex with multiple aspects that comprise this unique expression of the divine. His wisdom carries a transpersonal selflessness—like a kind father. He is an agent of the divine having reverence for all life. He is benevolent, evenhanded, calm, caring and thoughtfully present—yet passionate in his whole-hearted support. He is settled in the knowing that everything is as it should be, everything changes, and there is no lack or anything to genuinely fear.

3- Priest

The Priest archetype is possibly the least known or understood and the least supported in our culture. The Priest archetype domain is that of spiritual awareness and insight—connecting with and revealing “occult” (that which is hidden) knowledge of the unknown realm to the enlightenment of the self and selfless benefit for the many.

The Priest is the transducer, connector, and facilitator between the material and spiritual world—one’s conscious personality and the divine realm of Spirit. He is a mediator of the powerful energies that comprise one’s inner community of archetypes and personality components, working closely with the King and Sage archetypes to create, manifest and bring spirit into form.

The Priest calls forth and directs energies between unconscious and conscious awareness, affecting our felt sense of well-being and competence in life. The Priest nurtures and care-takes the spiritual relationship between the ego-personality and Spirit, the Divine.

The Priest archetype in its fullness feels like this: You are with a man who is the master of his spiritual and material realities and knows how to call forth from spiritual storehouses what he needs to transmute energies that would overtake or topple other men not in this fullness. He is thoughtful and reflective, having depth to his presence and intellect. He knows how to obtain higher perspective and detach from (or become neutral to) inner and outer storms and how to connect deep inner truths and resources with his experience of life. He is not easily pushed or pulled by faddish influences but with grace and insight he brings power and confidence to difficult situations requiring resolution, change or shifting.

4 – Warrior

The Warrior archetype is the most represented and exploited archetype in our culture—being elevated and revered by the dominant patriarchal society as: disciplined leader and protector. While these are two of the Warrior’s sterling qualities, it is what comprises his fullness that makes this archetype truly a divine expression.

Warrior qualities include: decisiveness and clarity of thought, selfless service, genuine humility, strength of experiential “knowing,” courage to do what serves the highest good even when it is a personal challenge to do so. He serves to maintain and support established systems and forms consciously, without blind rigidity, being exemplary in loyalty to a greater good beyond personal gain.

He remains calm and centered while under challenge. He is inwardly aligned and integrated—in touch with his feelings, being warm and compassionate, appreciative and generous at every opportunity. He fights “the good fight” in favor of benefiting the greater good and making life more fulfilling for everyone.

Being in the presence of a man in the fullness of the Warrior archetype feels like this: His strength of stature is evident and unheralded—not needing accolades or compliments. He contributes without fanfare or needing to direct or “lord” himself over others. He eagerly responds to requests of service showing respect to all—especially to those “elder” to him, as well as other men, women, children, animals and the earth.

He “knows himself” and finds his place in collaborative projects, being fulfilled and contented with the collaboration and not by ambition or competition. The man in the fullness of the Warrior makes you feel safe while not being oppressed by his stature or protection.

5- Lover

The Lover archetype is perhaps the most misunderstood and yet familiar primal energy. The Lover archetype has been distorted into a selfish and dense expression that lacks breadth or spirit. Yet the Lover is the meeting and combining of sex and spirit, Eros, the universal urge to bond and unite. He comprises the alchemy that infuses spirit into flesh with desire -prompting engagement and erotic expression. While most commonly expressed in romantic and sexual form, the Lover archetype contains a much fuller, divine, expression:

The Lover archetype in its fullness is the primal energy of passion, exquisite engagement with life and ecstatic being -an alive and vivid world view. The domain of the Lover archetype is the primal urges of being: sex, food, well-being, procreation and is manifested in creative adaptation and initiatory experience.

The Lover is the epitome of Sensual. He is intimately interested in all forms of sensory engagement, seeing the world in all its splendor. He is the archetype of play and healthy embodiment without shame. The Lover archetype has a mystical quality that seeks to experience beauty and unity in daily life.

The man experiencing the fullness of the Lover archetype feels like this: He is sensual. He is open and invites you to touch—his mind, body and soul. He is “connected” (integrated) and relishes physical, psychological and spiritual connection with others that highlights integrated expanded awareness and experience. He is immersed in the experience, present in the moment, focused on the quality of the connection and engagement. He appreciates beauty in all its forms and makes each moment a “work of art.” He appreciates the “sensuous” experience of life and resonates deeply on many levels of being. He is sensitive to others needs and moods and is intuitively responsive. He is “in his body” —animating it with vital energy through dance, yoga, or movement. He brings a “joy of life” to any engagement or conversation. He has stopped “performing” and has relaxed into “being” -feeling without pressure to “accomplish” or “gain.“

6 – Sage

The Sage archetype is a very important aspect of the Divine Masculine expression for our species. The Sage is closely aligned with the Priest archetype, however the Sage emanates an additional aspect of advocating “right action,” dharma. The Sage is the Ego in service to, and “right-relationship” with, the higher Self’s power.

The Sage observes, tracks, scans, monitors data from all sources (within and without) and channels wisdom leading to “right action.” The Sage is detached from ordinary life flow, watching and engaging energies with wisdom and toned action as needed for synchronistic harmony of life.

Being with a man in the fullness of the Sage archetype feels like this: Unheralded, he quietly and deftly shares with others wise counsel and channeled direction that shifts the receiver into new possibilities and pathways that reflect “right action” for their life path. He quietly supports the wisdom of others, not seeking acclaim or notice for his contribution. He is thoughtful and reflective and rests in his felt connection with spirit and grounded connection with the earth, Gaia, the source of his wisdom and insight.

The Sage’s importance comes to the fore during crisis and intense need. Through the uniquely formed conduit that the Sage embodies, wisdom and “right action” become clear. With the Sage’s contribution we feel confident and assured that our path is the right one for us, we respond to life with a calm easefulness that transitions crisis and change with grace and wisdom.

Where the Priest archetype has a primary focus on the “inward” realm, the Sage archetype has an “outward” focus of service —to manifest channeled wisdom into being.

Wow! Gets me excited just reading about it. If you’re a man looking to become the very best version of yourself, Sunyata’s exercise is a good one.

Finding your Divine Masculine Exercise

  1. Take each of the 6 archetypes and journal a bit about what each of them means to you. God, King, Priest, Warrior, Lover, Sage.
  2. Read Sunyata’s version of them above and imagine if you had those traits. How would you go about your day? How would you treat people? How would you carry yourself and communicate with others? What difference would it make in your life compared to how you relate to people now?
  3. Appreciate what pieces of these archetypes you are already demonstrating. The more you notice within yourself, the more potential you draw out of yourself. By putting some focus on it each day you can slowly draw your way of thinking and behaviour patterns towards the Divine version of yourself over time.
  4. I would add, as you notice the changes in yourself, more “noble”, more humble, more of service etc., also notice how others alter their own behaviour around you as a result. They may be inspired by the new you. They are likely to treat you differently and with a lot more respect – the type that can only be earned, not demanded.

That’s it for now. Come talk to me on the Facebook page with your findings and we’ll look at the Divine Feminine next.
