Being Authentic in 2022…

IAM welcoming in this new year of 2022, a year that I know is a special year for me. Something to do with all the 2’s that for the last couple of years have been very significant for me, guiding me through this crazy life we find ourselves all living in now. After a great quiet Christmas and New Year Tom and I continue to chill, being grateful for everything we have, looking to see what we’d like to do this year and planning what we want to get done at least these next few months.

As usual I asked for a word that I like to have to inspire me as the year goes by. A word that actually came to me last year… Authenticity.

It’s a word I’ve never quite understood. I know what the dictionary says about it… to be genuine, real, pure & true. But when the word popped into my head last year, I really felt it, knew exactly what it meant for me and how it would inspire me to live fully authentic!

It is clear as of this year, my rehearsals are over, the integration of Body, Mind, Spirit & Aspects nearly complete (if it ever truly is?) and a time for me to fully radiate the embodiment of my Sovereign Oneness. The Human having surrendered all to the Divine and is now being led through these end times as everyone clearly chooses their path.

IAM full of confidence, expression and compassion for all who I meet as I walk on the path of NewEarth who is showing herself more and more in the physical realm and I can finally let go of and pull back from people and things that no longer serve me. IAM deeply content and grateful for all that IAM and have, including my own company and solitude at times and the abundance that continues to come in.

I wrote the above during the first week of January, I stopped writing because Tom began feeling unwell and I’ve been nursing him at home and for the last few days in hospital. We managed to celebrate my birthday on 22nd January, we were laughing and happy right up until he passed away in the early hours of 23rd!

I can’t begin to explain all the shock, horror & emptiness I’ve been feeling since! Tom and I had become one very close unit and celebrating 33 wonderful years together this year. So it’s a bit like my whole body has been ripped open and parts taken away! But that’s me!

For Tom it was a good transition. It was his time and I honour his death as I honoured his life. He did his spiritual ascension in his own way. Releasing himself from his 73 year young body in an instant and travelled with loved ones the other side through the rainbow bridge our spiritual family had created a few years back for other family members… to pass easily from the 3D to 5D life. He soared high, victorious and free! So no more coming back, karma done, now to move into higher dimensions as the loving Master & Creator he truly embodied here on Earth. This only makes me feel so joyful and happy!

Now just me! My sister reminds me to put my big girl pants on and look at cracking the unit Tom and I created together. It’s time to hatch out! I’ll go gently, following my feelings. Embracing it all, facing the emptiness and giving it all a place. Following my body language because I do feel quite unwell.

Our children came to see him, their mother too, but were too late, he obviously wanted to do it alone. It broke their heart, but we made a great celebration week together as we celebrated his life, transition and freedom, giving Tom’s body back to the Earth. The children are all home now and are dealing like myself this loss and giving it a place.

Tomorrow I plan to write a post in memory of Tom, sharing with all his family and friends the celebration of life we held for him. In the meantime, here are a few photos of our family celebrations… and last photos of my love, forever in my heart❤️

Your word, authenticity, is a powerful one. My 2022 word is “Strength” – and we find it when we’re most authentic, don’t we?

I know all too well the sting that you are feeling with the loss of Tom. I felt this with my partner almost six years ago. It was a rollercoaster for many months. Every instance of grief is like a fingerprint. Although my circumstances were the same as your are feeling now but they are different in terms of memories and even the level of grief itself. Feel yourself hugged and sending you healing and comfort as well as my heartfelt condolences. <3

Thankyou so much for your beautiful words and friendship, yes he’s assisting us all now from beyond! I had hoped he’d stay this side but at the end of the day the human must let go❤️ He most certainly supported many here during his life… but it’s over to each individual now! Sending love x

Ah dear Barbara, as awakened as we may be, this world wants us to feel it all. And such a loss is indeed a painful, painful thing. You had both shared something so profound to create that very awareness and be free. And that Tom now is, in all that it means. If I may share something…I was shown our ‘let go’ from down here and it is the most incredibly beautiful moment as you become something so different to where you have just been. But so appreciated because you now understand the glorious unconditional love that now envelops you. It is truly beyond words as our language just cannot express that beauty that is awaiting us. Yes, he is free…but your heart is struggling…but becoming more because of it. I send you all the love that I am, the light in its understanding, and just a big heartfelt hug to let you know we all care and support you in this part of your journey. With much love, Mark xoxo ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

I’ll be thinking of you Barbara and creating space for you from here to do whatever you need: hatching out, grieving, and feeling joy for Tom. You have been in an incredible partnership. What a treasure! Much much love to you, Love Ka
Authenticity is your gift you keep on giving. Your light is bright and you wrote that you feel unwell, keep listening to your body and *know* that we are here. 💗 you magnificent souls! 💗 Delighted to know that Tom crossed that rainbow bridge and what a significant birthday. I was celebrating it with you from here, and I felt shocked when you shared the news of his passing. I’m so sorry for that deep grief and the shock. I trust you are deep in your process. Again, know that we are here, gently encouraging you to move through it all with the help and support of the Great Mother.
