The following is a SHARING by one of my favorite teachers and a dear friend- Mary Beth Canty, owner of innerfairy- www.innerfairy.com.
I asked her if she wanted to give this short excerpt from one of her newsletters a title. She reminded me to use all the spacing she uses to represent breath... thought... and purpose. And... she decided to call it...
"Let's keep it real."
"I sat down to write this missive on 11-1-11. That's a series of 1's. New beginnings. Anybody who follows pop spirituality will hear about gateways from time to time. Hint: watch for numerology alignments and planetary alignments for gateways -- and take what you read or hear about them from others with a grain of spiritual salt.
Lately, it seems every time I get on the internet, someone is talking about a gateway. I'll open the link, read about 3 sentences and then my head starts swimming.
Anyone who knows me knows that I value practicality with my spirituality. I am, in many ways, about as "out there" as you can get, but I'm very careful about how I share the information I access.
What good is information if it sounds dismissible at the outset?
Sometimes I have to wait weeks before sharing. Sometimes months. Sometimes years.
And then there's the stuff I just have to sit with. (And that's the fodder for ALL of my work.)
But let's face it... And be honest about it... When you start poking around and through the dimensions, you can access Crazytown. :)
No doubt about it.
Suffice it to say, that my credo is, if you can't bring what you detect back into 3-dimensional reality in a way that is listenable, you need to keep working on it.
But back to 11-1-11. Yes, I know we're erasing the 20 in 2011, but that's how we write the date in America. (In Europe, it would be 1-11-11.)
That, my friends, represents an alignment of the numeral 1. The first integer. One of the components of all 1 O data. 1. A symbol, that once upon a time, was channeled to represent an idea, a concept. A symbol that impressed enough people that they agreed to use it together to express, in written form, something that they collectively intuited or felt to be true.
Symbols are powerful things. And we seldom stop to think that the Arabic numerals we use to express counting, the letters in the alphabet that we use to create words -- were once channeled to solidify and represent something previously intangible.
Really, seriously, have you ever contemplated why a 1 looks like a 1? The form of it expresses something.
And that something is in the breathless place of pure idea. And that takes you somewhere."
