Looking Back To Move Forward ~ Year 2004


As we come into the final days of the year 2014, I realize that I have written a Newsletter almost every month since 11-24-03. Feeling nostalgic I decided to find a representative writing for each year, preferable on a month close to the end of the year. 
Today, I begin the walk down memory lane toward January 1, 2015. 
I send many thanks and unconditional love to my many wonderful friends who walk this lane with me. 



Our Fifth Chakra, located at our throat, rules speech, hearing, communication, self-expression, grace and listening to our Higher Self.  This chakra urges us to find our multidimensional “SELF,” and communicate it through our creativity.

The endocrine gland for this chakra is the thyroid gland.  The thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland, which wraps around the front part of the windpipe just below the Adam’s apple. 

The Fifth Chakra produces hormones which influence essentially every organ, tissue and cell in the body to regulate the body’s metabolism, organ function, heart rate, cholesterol level, body weight, energy level, muscle strength, skin condition, menstrual regularity, memory and many other conditions. 

In other words, our thyroid communicates with our entire body and assists in regulating our overall health and well-being.

Since the Fifth Chakra rules our sense of hearing, it is also rules our ability to hear our inner conversations.  If we cannot hear the dialogue that is in our minds, we will not be conscious of how our emotional thoughts interact with, interrupt, and distort our external communications. 

One of the powers of this chakra is our ability to listen to our self so that we can connect with our inner guidance before we try to resolve a dispute with another.  It is this ability that creates true intimacy with others  - AND with our selves. 

The Fifth Chakra is the first chakra that is ruled by our higher senses, which directs our attention to access the Collective Consciousness of Gaia. If we can shift from individual consciousness to planetary consciousness, we will be able to more effectively confront the challenges that lay ahead.

Communicating with our SELF through our Throat Chakra is the first step towards acknowledging that we are Gods and Goddesses in training. Like a small seed dropping from a flower we come to the third dimension to learn to blossom into our own flower.  There we find many hardships, as often the soil is dry and unfertile.  However, it is through facing our inner and outer conflicts that we grow into our highest creative SELF.

To fully open and understand the immense power of your Throat Chakra, please follow the links below in the order they are presented.

Your Throat Chakra also reminds you to consciously breathe. When you breathe primarily through your nostril, while you are PRESENT with your breath, you begin to notice how your breath changes.  Your breath changes not because you are consciously changing it, but because your PRESENCE allows you to consciously gather prana from the outer world and integrate it into your inner world.

As you are PRESENT, your breath slows down, becoming longer and more refined.  The increased prana, integrated into your system, increases your electro-magnetic field and raises the vibration of both your inner and outer worlds.  As your inner vibration rises, so does the environment around you.

Align your Crown Charka with the Great Central Sun and your Root Chakra, with the Heart of Gaia in the core of Mother Earth. Eventually, you are breathing not only for your self, but for your room, your building, your city, your state, your nation, your continent, your hemisphere, your planet. 

With each in-breath, you bring in new life from the photons of Spirit, and with each out-breathe you release the old through Her South Pole.  Every release through the South Pole supports new flow from the Central Sun into from the North Pole.  This breathing purifies not only your own Essence, but the Essence of Gaia as well.  Essence innately has a positive charge, which animates all that it touches and brings in positive magnetism. 

Thus, as you stay PRESENT with your breath, you experience the magnetism from the inner words mixed with the magnetism of the outer worlds. As you release darkness and bring in Light, you give your Essence a positive charge.  This positive charge allows your brainwaves to change. 

As you focus on your breath, your physical body relaxes and you move from Beta Waves—to—Alpha Waves. The Alpha Wave consciousness allows your cells to resonate to the increased charge of your breath. Your Emotional Body then becomes clear, fluid, and harmonious, which allows your imagination to expand with your intensified inner focus.  Then your consciousness gradually shifts from Alpha Waves—to—Theta Wave Consciousness.

The Theta Wave Consciousness allows your Mental Body to become collected, peaceful, lucid and focused.  Your thoughts become an aspect of your breath as your inner world expands and your outer world diminishes in importance and becomes the reflection of your inner life.  With the illusions of the outer world relegated to the “drama of the third dimension,” your consciousness gradually shifts from Theta Waves—to—Delta Waves.

Delta Wave Consciousness allows you to consciously receive the flow of information from the Essence of the Central Sun and the bliss of Union with All That Is.  Your Spiritual I AM Presence can open the gateway to the Rainbow Bridge and allow passage for your Soul/SELF to enter into your physical form to consciously ground Spirit into Matter.

I had a meditation in which I was instructed to add the below section to this process. 
I hope that you wonderful readers will join me in this activity by posting your answers.
Then, as we "Look Back to Move Forward," we can do so together.
I begin by posting my answers.

The 5 W's
WHO did you see yourself as in 2004? (how we perceive our self is WHO we are)
WHAT were you doing? (and how did "doing" that impact your perception of self) 
WHERE  did you live? (where we live greatly influences us)
WHEN were you most SELF-aware in that year?
WHY were you SELF-aware in that NOW? 

If you wish to post your answers it will assist in our Unity Consciousness.

Below is my 2004 memory

WHO With my parents both gone, I moved into a new form of adulthood.

WHAT I felt like I could begin to "come out" as my "real self"
WHERE I moved into my dream home, which greatly boosted my creativity
WHEN For the first time in my life, I could see myself as an artist
WHY I felt a sense of great freedom to BE my true SELF
2004 was a VERY good year.

    Why I had an important job - being a mother- and a little life was depending on me.
    xoxo Thank you Sue

    1. Thank you for sharing. Being a parent will, indeed, change our perception of self.

  5. WHO: At first, I isolated myself from my classmates in college, and was preparing to transfer to my ideal college. Still couldn't handle the truth well that I failed the entrance exam. In one or two months, however, my classmates wore me down, and I decided to stay there.

    WHAT: Beginning to admit that I'm imperfect, chose to stay and made friends with them.

    WHERE: On campus.

    WHEN: They invited me to have party with them up the roof, but I rejected. Although they knew I did not intend to stay, they still wanted to have fun with me.

    WHY: It was the first time I knew I didn't have to be alone with all that stupid isolation thing.

    1. Thank you for sharing. Being alone is not the protection we think it may be.

    2. Yeah... I understand. Still need that protection once in a while when things couldn't be worse. But I know one day will come when I no longer need that protection:)

  6. Thank you for your gift Suzanne!
    Romanian translation:

  7. WHO: I had just recently moved out of my own as a student and I was sharing that with a newfound best friend and at the same time I was gaining experience as a student consultant.

    WHAT: I thought I knew it all by now ( a 'big' man) while at the same time the relationship with the friend of mine was worsening.

    WHERE: Delft-Netherlands

    WHEN: my siblings were telling me I was acting as a smarty-pants :) and the relationship worsened to such a point that my friend decided to move out of the house, which resulted into refinding a soul friend with whom I am still best buddies :):).

    WHY: I learned that I didn't know it all as I know NOW that there is infinite and eternal expansion :) and NOW I realize that something beautiful came out of the apparent chaos as things do not always seem as they appear......

    1. Yes, the more we know, the more we know that we DON'T know
