What is it like to change your frequency?
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about what has happened to me and to Randi since March 27th – the day we decided to become biz partners and share the information she was receiving through her channeling.
I have experienced odd physical sensations and I think a lot about Ashley Maple – about transforming into Ashley Maple.
Who is Ashley Maple?
I wanted to share this story with you, as it is a big part of this week’s forum topic: Manifesting in the NOW! (Already a member? Here is the forum topic. Not a forum member? Go here to become one!)
You can read the condensed version of why Create the Leap changed here, but I wanted to elaborate on a few details.
On March 27th, under a big oak tree covered in Spanish moss, in Airlie Gardens, Randi and I did a session for me. I needed answers and was very distraught.
I was guided to pick a word that would be the name to represent the “future” me. I immediately saw in my mind’s eye a maple leaf floating in the air and picked “Maple.”
I was then guided on seeing me in the future and that me would be represented by the name Ashley Maple. Where was she? What was she doing?
I saw her dancing with other women on green grass (like in a pretty park), then sitting in a circle and teaching. Then I saw her in an RV, traveling and meeting new people on a regular basis. She was happy, healthy and always dancing.
The session went on to explain that the future me already existed – but at a different frequency and in a different dimension. And that we have access to any dimension we wish to tap into and we can become any of the versions of ourselves we desire by changing our frequency to match that version. This is how we manifest something we want in our life.
Now, that can all sound very woo-woo sci-fi (especially of you aren’t used to that manifesting lingo). But by seeing that version of me and giving her a name, I could tap into her. It also allowed me to see that I would be OK. Things weren’t as devastating as I felt they were at the time.
As the weeks passed and we were being taught through Randi’s channeled sessions, I kept Ashley Maple in my mind. I would see her in her RV, at gatherings, teaching with Randi and traveling.
I was researching RVs and going to look at all the various models and floor plans and at the nearby RV parks. I was picking the brain of a close friend of mine who was living full-time in an RV.
The more we did with the new work and the more I tapped into Ashley Maple, the more I saw changes within me. Not just with my attitude, but my dreams and my body.
I was having stretches of days where I was dog tired and needed over 9 hours of sleep. I was craving certain foods and not wanting food I normally ate. I was envisioning life in my RV – cooking, eating, doing yoga, walking my dog in the RV park, talking to other RVers and maneuvering my big truck/fifth wheel RV down the road.
I was also questioning all that was happening. Who was I to share this work? Was this for real? How did I get so lucky to actually get to do something I’ve always wanted to do?
And of course the BIG question: HOW was I going to GET said truck and fifth wheel?
The more sessions we did, the more I grasped that it was simply about changing my frequency to that of “Ashley Maple.”
She owned the RV and was doing what I want to do. She already existed. She was already doing her thing. I didn’t have to figure out how to get the RV or how to go from where I was to where she was in a linear fashion, I just had to change my frequency/vibration and become her.
It has been a gradual change. Little things have happened that might not even look like a frequency change, but is part of the process.
It took my close friend over a year to get her life changed around to go from living in a nice suburban house to living in an RV full-time. You have to downsize, you have to only have things in your kitchen supplies that are necessary and won’t break if they go bump while on the road. You might need a storage unit and you’ll switch out seasonal clothes. No more knick-knacks and you don’t need furniture.
I saw myself getting aggravated at not living near my favorite grocery store when I had to move last month but then I realized, as much as I love my routine and my fav shopping spots, when living in an RV, I’ll need to be more flexible in that regard. What I was currently going through was changing my frequency – letting me learn to not be so attached to my fav grocery store.
At first, I wasn’t even letting myself think about driving a big gas guzzling truck all the time. How can I feel that way about big trucks and still manifest one? I couldn’t. It won’t work.
So, one day I started noticing all the big trucks on the road – which ones were big enough to haul a fifth wheel? Which ones did I like? I started noticing the fifth wheels on the highways and what trucks were with them.
I still had a conflict regarding the truck though – I loved my car and didn’t want to be driving a big truck all the time – I wanted to keep my car for when parked here at home.
I knew I had to find my alignment with that or it would block me, so I asked the Universe to help me out. One day as I was driving through downtown, it hit me- when I am parked here at home, I can rent out my truck through Turo and drive the car I have. That switched my feelings about having a big truck and it changed my vibration.
I realized that I needed “time” to take care of all the adjustments. If someone had given me a wad of cash right when I had this idea and I went and bought an RV right then and there, I’d probably be having all kinds of issues right now. I would not have been in alignment, or in the right frequency to be living that life yet.
So, while we are learning to live outside the constraints of time (like learning that it isn’t about the money to reach your goals), we are still humans and we need to adjust things to match up with our desires.
I’ve taught this for years, but this experience really brought it home for me in so many ways!
Yes, I could instantly switch my frequency to that of Ashley Maple. We are capable of doing that. We are capable of SO much more than we think! But, it is taking these little steps and adjustments to help me make the changes needed.
I wanted to look at this in a practical manner as well. Let’s see how this works in the old typical way verses the Age of Omniscience way:
- I need 80k or more to buy the RV and the truck (how do I make that kind of money? And fast? Brain goes into the mode of trying to figure that out and probably gives up)
- Do I finance it? If so, I need to raise my credit score and show consistent income (I’m self-employed and my income comes in chunks and not with pay-stubs – so I’d probably get denied.)
- I need to work 3 jobs and try to put a ton of money away. (ugh)
- Do I know anyone who would loan me the money? No…
Even writing these out, I feel heavy and like a loser…those feelings are very low vibrations and will get me NOWHERE!
- I don’t need to know HOW – Source has an infinite way of setting this up for me. (Wow, that feels nice!)
- I keep envisioning myself in the RV and when I feel inclined to go look at models and parks, I go and I learn more about them. (That is fun!!)
- I envision myself living in one and I see where I need to downsize and I go about doing that. (Feels good to make my life much simpler!)
- When I come up against a sticking point, I ask the Universe to sort it out for me and I get an idea of how to do just that.
- It isn’t about the dollar amount. 80k for Source is no big deal. I just have to be vibrationally “ready.” (I can do that. It’s nice actually to have this time to adjust.)
Writing out this new way feels much easier, lighter and is a higher vibration!
It has been fun to refer to this me that I’m becoming with a name. I can talk about her and feel her and know she already exists. It empowers me – verses feeling like this is a goal I can’t achieve.
Whenever I see a maple leaf in designs or in nature, I see it as a wink and a nod from Source and it makes me feel supported.
I am simply becoming Ashley Maple. That lets me do this outside the constraints of “time” and the limitations it puts on me.
Bottom line – this feeeeeels waaaaaay better than the old way. I feel more like her each day and know that I AM HER!
Is perfectionism keeping your reality conditional?
Is perfectionism something you are always striving for? Or, is it your Achilles heel?
Do you tend to think that, “Once everything is perfect, then I can… (fill in the blank)?
I’ll admit, it’s something that I’ve struggled with.
Mine started as a very small child with a father who thought if one wasn’t perfect 100% of the time, they were worthless. Even as a 4-year-old, he’d set traps for me to show me how imperfect I was….
It has been one of my bugaboos for 50 some years.
Any of us with Virgo prominent in our birth charts (my Venus is in Virgo) have a perfection tendency in some area of our life.
So when our guides kept bringing up this topic (and the week they did, I also came across the article about the war against perfectionism Alicia Keys is doing), I paid attention.
The topic also came up in the session we did about the Orlando shooting, so I think it is worth expanding on.
Our Guides have been referring to it frequently because right now, my life is very out-of-sorts. I’ve been taken out of my comfort zone in many ways over the past few months. As well, Randi and I have been working diligently to get the website “perfect” and our schedules “perfect” and come up with a perfect routine, when in fact, we’ve been experiencing much chaos…which sets my teeth on edge!
As a coach and an entrepreneur, the topic of perfectionism comes up a lot.
We procrastinate because we think all has to be perfect before we are official.
One of my coaches taught that “imperfect action trumps non-action” because so many people put off things out of the feeling that all must be perfect to begin.
Whether it is school, our job, our relationships or our bodies, perfectionism can be the demise of way too many dreams and goals.
Below is a section from a session on the topic of perfection. The “ritual” mentioned is Randi’s usual way of getting ready to channel, with the lighting of candles from her altars honoring the four directions, above and below and her intention setting. She felt that she had to do this “getting ready” ritual in order to be able to channel. She needed things to be just so to feel that the channeling would happen as it should.
“We are wanting to remind all of you that your omniscience is as immediate as you perceive it to be. The rituals are excellent because they are focusing of energy; they are so excellent at setting an intention and honing in on a particular frequency from all frequencies that exist. So with Randi lighting the candle, she is preparing her energy to receive us, but what we would say to her is that it is not necessary. During a busy day, and wrangling the fans, and scratching her mosquito bites, and trying to get a session in before the baby starts crying or the parents get home, and allowing enough time for her treat of Game of Thrones… we would say in all of that, her ritual is just as immediate, in the sense that she take a deep breath and she do the next thing on her task list.
We are saying this as a general indication to everyone that your reality is what you perceive it to be, and if you always believe that the perfection of reality is only when you do a certain set of things, then you’re keeping your reality conditional. Whereas simply being in the now, and no matter how chaotic or wild or non-orderly that the now might appear to you…we would say to be in the now. Cherish the now for what it is and allow for the perfection of your reality to be happening always, rather than waiting for certain things to be in order and in place. For there is beauty, there is evolution, there is growth, there is poignancy IN THE NOW. Enjoy it; be in it. That is where eternally we are speaking to you from.
In understanding just how powerful our perceptions are, I’ve been able to shift a lot in my life. It works the same way in every single area of our life – no exceptions.
If you think that certain things have to be in place before you can achieve, receive, experience, feel, know or do…then THAT perception is the ONLY thing blocking you. You’ve placed a condition on your reality and experiences. YOU. Not your boss, lover, parents or circumstances. YOU. And then what follows is a conditional reality.
So, WHY do we do that?
Back to my father – one positive thing he did teach me was about the topic of “perfection” (ironically).
Here was his analogy: We tend to think that a perfect piece of chalk is right out of the box, all smooth, unused and tall. But, the perfect piece of chalk is the piece that has been used so much that it is hard to even hold. It is “perfect” because it is being used as it was intended. I like that analogy. I’ve been using that analogy when I feel out-of-sorts and that I want my “perfect” situation. I see how my situation is perfect because it is doing what it is meant to do.
A “perfect” piece of chalk has done NOTHING. NO writing on the board. No piles of white dust. Nothing for us to read.
The very used piece of chalk gave us something. Words, images, information. Yes, there are also piles of dust and we might be sneezing and need to clean up – (What a mess! So imperfect! ) – but we GOT something.
The point the guides keep making is that life is never a constant – it is always changing. We are creative beings and that creativity is what keeps us moving forward, trying new things, taking chaos and making it into something that works for us.
When we see a certain rung of the ladder we feel we must climb as that “perfect” place we need to get to, we are losing sight of our ability as creators. Once we are to that rung, we are different, life is different and we need a new rung to go for. Really, there is no “perfect” rung, because we are always changing and what we want is always changing.
That takes us back to the meaning of perfection as: doing what we/it is meant to do.
Again from our guides: There is much more evolution that comes from chaos, then comes from order, yes?
- Where and when in your life are you wishing for the perfect situation, the perfect person and the perfect conditions?
- Where are you creating a conditional reality that isn’t helping you, but blocking you?
- What if you saw something that doesn’t seem perfect as something that is meant to do what needs to be done?
This post is from a channeled session with OM that we did right after the Orlando Pulse club tragedy.
I posted a video on my Facebook timeline of a Bernie Sanders interview with Meet The Press where he reacted to the horrific mass shooting in Orlando by calling for automatic weapons not to be sold in the US.
While I’m not one who debates politics, a few jumped in to discuss their viewpoint on our rights as Americans to own/use guns.
One friend posed: Does OM know of the loving solution?
So, we did a session asking that question.
Ashley: My question comes from a conversation about a current event, a shooting at a gay club in Florida. I don’t know the details, but it brought up everybody’s opinions about guns, the violence, people having access to semi-automatic and automatic weapons, making it easy for them to go and massacre large groups of people, and the group was at a gay club. So the question is: from a broader perspective, what is the solution to this? Or is this just a part of the chaos that propels us into understanding each other more?
OM: Do you see how you already know the answer? [Laughter] We don’t need to go on now, do we?
Ashley: Okay…how to explain… I’ve felt this for a long time, even regarding the current transgender debate. With many living as transgendered and so many people not wanting to define themselves as male or female, and so many people wanting to experience both, or one and then the other… I think it’s a part of our evolution. But it’s very hard to talk about that, for other people get so upset, because they still want to believe in the male/female, the mom/dad, the woman/the man, the wife/the husband…duality!
OM: Duality, that’s right.
First thing first – we are wanting to remind you that your reality is your dream. Your perceptions of the way your dream is orchestrated is yours.
It gets a little bit trickier when you extend your dream to the shared dream.
When things happen in the mass consciousness – such as this incident – it ripples around and challenges the shared dream.
There is this shared construct of duality that the mass consciousness is evolving out of.
Again, we want to remind you that “evolving” denotes hierarchy. It is more like, there’s a lake which exists as your mass Consciousness, especially as Americans, it is a lake. Maybe we could further expand that metaphor by saying the entire universe is a vast and deep and infinite ocean. And yet, there is a lake with boundaries that calls this “The American Mass Consciousness.”
Now, the waters are rippling from the currents of your daily lives, it is like a wind current that ruffles the water at a “normal” rate. Now, when something like this happens, this shooting, and you drop a giant – we wouldn’t even say a pebble, we would say a BOMB – in this lake, it throws the water up.
It shakes the shared construct. It allows for the mass consciousness, not just this American and that American, or in this part of America, or those from Orlando or Florida…it drops such a bomb, that the American consciousness goes up as an energetic spike, in which that water then goes over the boundaries of what it is to be American, it splashes out into the world. And from our cosmic perspective, we are feeling that energetic spike, because all energy is connected to all other energy.
So when something like this happens, the waters rise, there is splash, the “wildlife” within the American Consciousness is affected, just like an oil spill–you have ecological repercussions of something like an oil spill – in this case, the repercussion is what people believe to be the way they can control their reality, so that this water does not splash up again.
In choosing your life to be human, you are wanting order and steady waters. In other words, there are infinite ways in which you have to focus your physical experience, and in this particular time of transitioning from that reality of understanding that you create it, to that which is understanding that you are reality in any manifestation of it, is called the Age of Omniscience. This transition period is going to up-heave the steady stream of “I’m in control of my reality…I can make it so perfect…”
And not everybody believes this. But to have such an opinion, and to live in a “time” where social media denotes an energy that is towards the intellectual… so in other words, if one is busy farming all day long, one does not necessarily hear about the shooting with such a quickness, with such a tremendous sharing of information.
You are in an Age of Information, where your technology is allowing for you all to decide exactly how you want your reality constructed. So we would say to you, you all are in an Age of Creating your Reality, and you’re transcending from that into the Age of Omniscience, because you will finally realize that you are in this pool, and that there are these ups and downs, and when something like this throws the waters up to such a degree, you all go “[Gasp!] My construct! My construct! My construct is totally whacked! I can’t sail on these un-calm seas!”
We would say to you that is because it is showing you the extent in which you are wanting to make your reality tidy and perfect.
We want to remind you that ALL REALITY EXISTS–those that are tidy and perfect and those that aren’t. Ask what it is like to be a tree in the native forest, for hundreds and hundreds of years. That tree would say to you “My life is tidy and perfect.”
Now, you all are just as often human as you are the tree in the native forest; as you are the cloud in the perfect sunset; as you are the butterfly that hatches and has a day of grandeur and then passes away.
You all are equally choosing this experience. But you’ve come into this particular frequency (that is what we mean by focusing frequency–deciding to be Randi Janelle in this focused frequency of being born when she was born, allowing for her to create this skin and this body–this is what it is to be focused frequency), so you all have decided to be born when you are born into a time of transition and change and upheaval, and knowing that in all of that chaos, you can choose: do I stay in the chaos or do I become a tree? Do I decide my particular view on guns or do I be the butterfly? Do I come to those who have been victimized and open my heart to their experience? Do I feel what it is to be a gay person? Do I understand that what it is to be a gay person is me, for I am everything and everyone?
So even if I am straight, even if I identify as a man, or identify as a woman, even if I identify as being in a heterosexual relationship–a massacre of this level is forcing you to decide: am I separate or am I a part? Am I going into the Age of Omniscience or am I choosing the frequency of where we’ve begun?
An incident of this level is an impetus to define your reality–are you going to be one who empathizes? Even if you have never felt gay, or even if you never felt like the man with the gun, or with the religious dogma that is so far from what you believe to be your own… Do you see how it is a challenge to humanity, to empathize with not only the victims, but the instigator, the perpetrator, the man who has the giant gun.
It is not about whether or not you believe in guns. It is not about whether or not you think, okay, it’s okay to own this pistol, but it’s not okay to own this automatic weapon… The guns are a side note to what you are choosing to incorporate into your reality.
When you stop talking about the pettiness of guns is when you stop going, I need to have my life a certain way, I need to have my reality as tidy and perfect... Or you decide to say, “I accept that this world is created of perfection in love and in humanity loving whomever they want to love, without boundaries of skin, without boundaries of sexual preference, without boundaries of man or woman, without boundaries of white skin or dark skin, without boundaries of “we believe in different gods,” without boundaries of your reality scares the hell out of my reality.
This is an opportunity for those who are loving the victims and the perpetrator, to realize that we are both victim and perpetrator.
When you understand that, and when you remove yourself from the separation that includes fear that another affects my reality -because when you create your own reality, and you have an awareness that you’re creating your own reality – then it becomes something where you realize that all of those things which is in your American Consciousness, is you as an American, is you as a human, is you as the spiking of energy which is shouting out to the cosmos, “I AM READY TO TRANSCEND. I AM READY TO LOVE MY FELLOW MAN, AND LOVE MYSELF AS MUCH AS MY FELLOW MAN, TO THE EXTENT THAT I REALIZE THAT NOTHING IS SEPARATE FROM ME, THAT ALL EXISTS WITHIN ME, AND I EXIST AS ALL WITHIN MYSELF AND ALL OTHERS!”
Do you see how an experience like this is an incredible opportunity? And that sounds terrible for someone to say – we know exactly what the next response is, “Why do people have to be murdered so terribly, so indescribably malignantly, for us to transcend?” We would say to you that those 50 people agreed in coming into those bodies to be such a symbol of life and transcendence. And just as quickly as a person is killed, they are reborn as the perpetrator, they are reborn as the heterosexual, they are reborn as that which they have not experienced, until they experience ALL, and understand that ALL IS THEM.
Was that preachy enough?
We are joking, because we are wanting to, at the same time, identify with the perspective of what is happening energetically with you all as an American Consciousness, as a Human Consciousness, because anytime there is a shout out in energy that says, “I want change! I want love! I want connection!” the cosmos is hearing it, and saying we can finally speak to you in words of change, and love, and connection. Otherwise you do not have the vocabulary, you do not have those ears that are tuned to the frequency that is coming through Randi in the moment as a channel, because these things are required in order to receive that which will propel you into the next experience of reality.
(I made a comment here that in the same way that my current “chaotic” feeling situation made me even more excited for what I want next in my life and made me more determined, that this event makes our mass consciousness even more determined to be accepting and to live in harmony.)
There is a reason why it was the gay community. This incident has been compared to 9/11.
9/11 is a targeted energy; 9/11 was the financial energy; 9/11 was a lot of the white middle class (for the most part) demographic, of taking each rung up that ladder of measuring success through monetary gain.
When that was destroyed symbolically, energetically it was a choice in perception: it was either the Iraqis/the Muslims are evil and we are good, or there was the choice of this energetic perception of I do not want to climb that ladder, because that ladder has been physically destroyed, and maybe it is not one with mal-intent energetically that destroyed that ladder, it is an American Consciousness of saying, “We are creating our reality, and we are deciding to create something outside of the traditional, financial hamster wheel of creating as much “power” and monetary gain and world control as we can.”
So much so of the American Consciousness said, “I decide on love.”
Now it’s going to seem completely ridiculous that if the American Consciousness says, “I decide not on the control, on the power, on the money, on the manipulating of people and things…I decide on connection…” it seems ridiculous that that would require so many deaths, and that would require so much destruction. But we would say to you, this is how the universe works. A star becomes bigger and bigger and bigger until it completely explodes, and it might take out an entire planet, an entire civilization, but just as quickly as that planet, that whole solar system that might be destroyed by an expanding star…we would say to you, you become the star -the next born star – instantaneously!
When you understand that you are the star, you are the thousands of people that were killed in 9/11, the 50 people killed in the nightclub, you are all of these things, and just as quickly you can relive that life. You can live another version of that life. You can become the rebuilt society. It is instantaneous.
We are alerting you to the fact, something that you know in your multidimensionality, that you never die. So a death, even though it seems very intense and insurmountable in your physical perspective, it is only that because you are focused only on your physical perspective. We are reminding you, that if you have any spiritual inclinations, that you are speaking to a higher power, the higher power says forgiveness, the higher power says we are eternal, the higher power says love thy enemies, the higher power says we-I-you are within you in your heart.
The duality that exists in saying, “I am good and you are evil,” is a denser frequency that keeps you in the cycle of fear and love. So as long as you are in the duality of fear and love, you will cycle around in these situations that propel you from fear to love.
But if you understand that you are fear and love and everything in between (all within yourself), it becomes less of a reaction to certain events -having to deal with a family member who’s been killed, having to deal with creating your stance – and becomes instead a choice.
You can just as easily choose to be in whatever version of reality: that man with the automatic weapon – you can choose to be him – simply to feel the energy of what he is feeling, or simply to influence that version of him to put the gun down. We would say to you if you are wanting to change, then in your heart put your fears down.
Replace your fears with love, and you understand that you are just as much that man, that gun, that victim, the homosexual, the heterosexual—you are all components of these created constructs.
Did we answer your question or did we go WAY further out?
Ashley: No, it was…amazing.
Good. We are speaking amazing things because you all are channeling amazing things. We are changing this phrase, this vocabulary of creating your reality to something that is more appropriately channeling your reality. You are all vessels. You are all channelers. You are all taking things that you are choosing and bringing them forth into a physical reality. So anything that we are saying, we are simply repeating back to you as that which you are already experiencing. In a sense, you may think of us as “higher” or “in the future” or “evolved” and we are saying to you, you are only hearing this voice of us because it is something emitting from your hearts; we are a voice of your heart as glowing in connection. If your hearts were not already glowing, there would not be a situation created that says, “Universe, we are ready to transcend this. We are ready to acknowledge those things that are already happening…” and if people are not ready to acknowledge, and are wanting to stay in the cycle of fear and disconnection, then do not judge them, for that is their choice.
It is not about right or wrong. It is about choices.
What seems wrong simply means, I am constructing my own dream to include those things which others deem to be wrong.
Do you see how 9/11 represents that? Do you see how the night club represents that?
You can take the situation and you can choose whether or not you agree to weapons, or you can choose whether or not you agree to a perceived reality that includes reaction, or it includes choice and includes I am all of these things and I am coming to this particular point of focus. Yes?
**As a student of Abraham, it took me many years to really get that there is no right or wrong. I decide what MY reality consists of and that is what I’ll experience. That alone drastically changed my life. But, I also began recognizing that we all have soul contracts and that some choose to come in and go through horrid events to be part of what allows our society to evolve and become more.
It is hard to see this when you are the friend or family of the one who suffered. We are human, we feel loss and anger and fear…..but these events make us want more, they make us want better and they change us.
How do you feel about the ending of viewing life through duality?
