The New Masculine Paradigm...
There is a group of men on this planet who’s preparing to explode all previously held notions of what ‘being a man on Earth’ means. Most of them have been treading a gently opening path of growth and change for many years. They are aware that they are ‘different’ at a core level. They are hyper-aware that they do not seem to fit into established or traditional roles, inhabited by their own fathers, and forefathers.
In many ways, these men have been standing alone since childhood.
These are men that have always been vibrating at a deep level of higher consciousness, but they have not always been able to see it that way. Early on in this lifetime, they were born with a new directive that began ‘awakening’ them right from the beginning. These men have always been conscious that they were different. They were conscious of being pulled in directions that they did not fully understand, but being only shown one way of living ‘as a man’, continued to mould themselves into roles and relationships that were prescribed for them by culture and society.
These men always wanted to succeed. They always wanted to live up to their potential as potent wands of creative energy. They knew they had engines full of power and intelligence, fuelled up and ready to drive them into a purposeful life in the world. Some of them lived from this source of energy and power with recognisable success, and this was something that they could proudly tell their fathers. For a few moments, they could relax and know that their father approved of them; they were a ‘good boy’, a worthy man. This gave them a few more years of oxygen, a few more years of capability to keep being alive, despite the gnawing ache in their bones, the growing psychic sensitivity to being out in the ‘normal’ world, the inability to move with the herd, and feel satisfied with what all other men seemed to be content with.
Some of these men have never felt a sense of being a success. Some of them were so sensitive, so spiritually anchored even from birth, that they ‘failed’ to reach the established societal goalposts almost from the beginning. Feeling an almost intangible alienation from everything they saw their friends, brothers, fathers, uncles and even admired role-models doing…some of these men may even have ‘dropped out’ of the net, sabotaged their own inner creative fire, numbed themselves to their spiritual acuity and extreme sensitivity.
Obviously, many of the routes to doing this ‘dropping out’ involve what can become addictive behaviours; drugs & alcohol, non-emotionally or spiritually present sex, over-working or refusing to work, hiding and numbing within relationships or marriages that are not growth-inspired.
Most of these men – these actual pioneers of a new chapter in masculine energy evolution – have veered in-between these two extreme states. None of them have ever found what their deepest Soul-knowing would describe as ‘home’.
The New Age has arrived, and with it, some tolerable life-choice options for men like this who don’t fit into the old patterns. Being ‘on a spiritual path’ has become a theme that can give some of these men permission to go and ‘just be’; to find themselves and escape the toxicity, the unbearable noise, the cacophony of voices that scream at them daily to achieve, conquer, strengthen, make money and more money no matter what human & natural destruction ensues, to dominate with ruthlessness and no heart, to crush all that lies in the way of owning everything at the expense of everyone.
No wonder they crave escape and a sunshine-covered beach full of feminine wonder and bliss. Or a cave, where hermit-like, they sit and commune with the higher freedoms of their depleted spirits. No wonder they run for the hills, maybe even rejecting intimate relationships and sexual interaction, in the name of pursuing God, of pursuing a real objective, of pursuing their hearts.
These men need a time-out from all this pressure to be what they never were in the first place.
They need a time-out from their father’s voice in their head.
They need to detox, to recover, to re-align.
They need to be….alone.
And yet in the nothingness, in the aloneness, in the silence, in the playful immersion into nature, in the blissful escape – in whatever form it takes in their lives – these men have come to feel that their existential restlessness – the one they have had since childhood – has not been alleviated.
In fact, it may have even increased in recent months and weeks.
There is something that they must do. Something that they must embody, rise up to, explode through, penetrate, seed creative potential to.
It involves their hearts, they know that much, because their hearts are on fire with…what is it? Is it passion? Is it desire? Is it urgency? Is it love?
It involves their spirits, they know that much, because recently there has been such a call to Spirit, so much synchronicity, so much divine alignment in their lives…it is definitely Spirit moving.
Are they capable of taking this risk, this jump?
Right into the heart of their beautiful, mighty, pulsating soul’s mission?
Their minds do not know what to do. Nothing is being laid out or revealed as concrete evidence. There are no guarantees, and whatever it is that is leading these men is so far away from the landscape of what their father has ever risked his heart or reputation for, that it almost makes these men want to curl up and die. Just stay in the comfort zone forever – even if that comfort zone looks like a New Age paradise.
What these men may, or may not, know – is that the Goddess pantheon is with them, so deeply, so profoundly, so revolutionarily, that they will not have to wonder about the pros and cons of taking a risk on themselves for much longer.
All of these men who will resonate with the energy of these words have been touched by the hand of the Goddess, and the resurrection of high feminine consciousness.
Some of these men have been re-initiated into the ancient temples of the divine feminine and ignited into new active sacred purpose.
What the Goddess knows is that there is work to do, and that these men have been in-filled with new source-codes of direction.
The new directions for these men – those who have a contract to return to uphold the altar of the sacred feminine – are directions that involve taking their hearts into new territories. In some ways, they are risking it all, because they now have to stand up and be seen as the true warriors of love that they are.
And this means, demonstrating that love in active purpose, in creative, meaningful, applied ways. It means being in relationships that are not allowing them to avoid the healing power of sacred intimacy – intimacy that requires their depth and their presence.
This sacred purpose is not about running.
It is about staying.
It is about showing up, opening up, growing up and stepping up.
It is about moving into all the voids, all the empty spaces, all the terrifyingly uncharted plains of existence that these men’s fathers, and fathers before them, could not reach into.
It is about finally coming home to the unheard, un-noticed, un-witnessed, even un-loved, parts of themselves – and being admired, appreciated, welcomed and trusted for their spiritual uniqueness.
All of these rare and deeply needed men are being held by the Great Goddess, and contacted by the Great Gods, and their emissaries.
This is their time.
This is the time of total trust being extended to the pioneers of the new masculine paradigm.

I am sharing a piece written by Sophie Bashford who is an author, intuitive, practitioner, retreat creator, and healer of the divine feminine. She writes about the re-emergence of the sacred/divine masculine. I want to share this for any divine feminine out there that may come across this wondering where the masculines are on their spiritual journey and for any masculine that may feel alone or overwhelmed during this time to let them know they are not alone.

Where No One Stands Alone...
To me this photo is a beautiful depiction of our loved ones as they enter into the Heavenly Realm. Heaven to me is a return to our natural form in a higher state of consciousness instead of a faraway place in the sky.
The light shining down is the love of God/Source/Creator or whatever you choose to call it. The peace that encompasses all understanding is what I imagine we step into, hence; the dove. The lightness and willingness to step into this consciousness appears to be glorious, a very proud and anticipated return back home after our work on earth is done.
It is my humble opinion we ALL return to our natural form which is Spirit first and foremost. We are not these heavy dense bodies; we are the Soul that inhabits them. These fleshly vessels are what we use to get around and navigate this realm.
Having said that, we were never in love with our loved one's bones, veins, limbs…no!! We were/are in love with the INSIDE of them. Their Soul, their very essence and that is still with us. We may not be able to SEE them, but we can’t see the wind either but know it is there.
So, we are asked now, to step into a Universal truth based on love and faith. Remembering that love never dies and neither do we. That death is simply a mere transition back to who we really are, and nothing can ever break those bonds of love.
As we continue to move forward on our path let’s step into the truth that our loved ones are only a breath away and continually guiding us with the greatest of love.
I was awakened to this truth almost ten years ago when my Twin Soul left this earthly plane and returned home. He has shown me through his love and our ongoing connection that love is eternal and so are we. I posted this on my book page to assist those in their unbearable pain and suffering after the loss of a loved one. To give them another perspective at this most auspicious time when many are choosing to leave this planet.
This blog is at the heels of the passing of the beautiful LIsa Marie Presley who knew grief all too well. I like to think that is her in the image entering the gates of Heaven for a reunification with her father and beloved son. Her song titled "Where Noone Stands Alone" can be a harsh reminder of how isolated we can feel because of our grief and many circumstances on this earthly plane. May she be surrounded for eternity by those who love her and never feel alone again. May this blog comfort and serve those who need to hear it at this time.
If you would like to visit my Facebook page, click here. It is our hope to continue to shed light on the unbreakable bond of love and the continuity of the soul. Blessings!

Note: A brief excerpt taken from Lisa Marie's essay written for "National Grief Awareness Day" about her son Benjamin. It was published in People Magazine on Aug. 30, 2022. This is Lisa's last Instagram post.
"Nothing, absolutely NOTHING takes away the pain, but finding support can sometimes help you feel a little bit less alone."
Lisa encourages everyone to reach out to those in grief long after their loved one has passed. She writes this to bring awareness and change to those that continue to struggle with grief. We can take each other's hand and feel less alone when it comes to the loss of a loved one. May you RIP pretty girl. For help or info on what to say visit Grief.com.

Peace Within Equals Peace On Earth...
I am reading a book titled "We Consciousness 33 Profound Truths for Inner and Outer Peace" by author Karen Noe.
She channels Dr. Wayne Dyer who is part of the "We Consciousness." I feel this book has come to me at just the right time as I would not have been ready for it during my own pilgrimage/walk. Within my own spiritual journey of re-membering who I/we really are I feel I have reached a point of "exhale." It feels like a little more breathing room than ever before. A sense of peace, if you will. I say "we" because I am you and you are me. We all come from Source/God and cannot be separate from one another. I can only paraphrase how the great Dr. Wayne Dyer put it. It is much like taking a cup of water and dipping it into the ocean. That cup of water retrieved would represent each of us in our earthly life as an individual.
The cup of water still contains every single element that the entire ocean is made up of so there is no difference in what is in the cup and what remains in the ocean.
Meaning, although we appear separate, we are all one as we came from the same source. Hope that makes sense! We are all children of God, and no one is any more valuable or different than the other. We may appear different in our physical vessels and have come to earth on different missions but at the core we are all the same. Whatever one does also affects the whole, that includes, the plant and animal kingdom as well. There is a ONENESS to All things.
Peace Pilgrim puts it this way:
"It does not matter what name you attach to it, but your consciousness must ascend to the point through which you view the universe with your God-centered nature. The feeling accompanying this experience is that of complete wholeness with the Universal Whole. One emerges into a euphoria of absolute unity with all life."
Now, having stated that it makes sense that indeed we must first come to a place of peace within our own god-self first and then extend that peace outwardly into the world.
Can you just imagine what the earth would be like if over seven billion people found/uncovered that peace. There would be no wars, fighting, hatred, jealousy or any discord. Just a life, a world/planet filled with peace and love for everyone and everything. God is that love and peace and you must become/remember that ass well to feel that full connection to him. We must align ourselves to our Creator and love ourselves first.
It is my belief/experience that what we do for ourselves we do for one another as well.
So, if we show ourselves love and transform our own life first, then that expands out to others and the planet. We are also energetically connected whether we know it or not. When we even "think" positive thoughts and raise our vibration, we are assisting others around us and even around the planet to raise theirs too. Then we all keep drawing positive people and circumstances to us and that is where the world slowly transforms. We as individuals are always looking for ways to change others or the world. We don't have to "fix" another person or go out and protest to see results. We just have to get quiet within ourselves and find that peace and love within, not externally.
Remember that our Creator/God IS love and peace and we as his children are love and peace as well (going back to the cup and ocean.)
We may have forgotten that, but many are now re-membering and waking up to that truth. As you keep moving on your path this will help sustain you from within understanding that we all are in this together affecting one another as a whole. I'm not only ready to "live" in peace but to "contribute" to that peace the best I can. Each and every one of us is valuable, important and able to individually find our peace so that we can collectively BE peace.
On that note, Karen poses a question and asks God "How may I serve?" Don't be fooled into thinking that you are insignificant and could not possibly make a difference. You/we are more powerful than we think!
Here is a prayer by Saint Francis that Karen included in her book:
"Lord make me and instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness. light;
Where there is sadness. joy;
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life."
May peace prevail as we all come into internal peace bringing about peace on earth during this most celebrated and auspicious time.
