This is the first week I am fully present as my new self. With each passing day, my old self recedes. I recently wrote a eulogy to the 62-year-old woman who has passed the torch to me. I am grateful that she did the work to birth me. Who am I? I am an expression of my Soul distinct from the former expression. This death-rebirth experience is the product of my recent passage through my old ring-pass-not. You might sense a shift in the tone of my writing as I express from this new self. You will get to know me as I get to know myself.
I am consciously reorienting all my relationships as I move into this new phase of my life. I am quieter than I used to be and when I speak, I am more considered. I strive to balance transparency with sensitivity and am liberated by my greater spiritual detachment borne of the Aquarian Triangle Activation for Metaphysical Authority™. I have been contemplating the goal of my communication and have concluded that it is to live in Soul alignment. Speaking and not speaking both support Soul alignment. My first determination is whether to speak at all. If the right course of action is to speak, then I do my best to align each word with the impulses of my Soul. I am also acutely aware of the Soul alignment or misalignment in others' communication. When communication is out of alignment with the Soul, it bounces off me. When communication is in alignment with the Soul, it flows into me. I don’t waste my time with misaligned communication as it serves no purpose.I am an interpreter of the Soul’s messages, often hidden amidst the confusion of the ego/personality.If people are receptive to my response to their communication, based on my interpretation of their Soul, it supports them to connect more fully with their Souls and become more Soul aligned. The people who are not receptive, even if I have never met them, will soon leave my sphere of influence and my clarity will magnetize others who are receptive. May we learn to move in and out of each other’s lives in peace.
I am acutely aware of what there is to accomplish in the years remaining in my life. I see the end point of this incarnation and am preparing for it through a renewed focus on the work at hand and a determination to eliminate all distractions. I am mourning the loss of my life even as I live it. So many people are making unexpected passages to the spirit world because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I feel the pain in their hearts as they leave unfinished lives. When I was 30, I studied with a Native American elder. This is the last sentence of the morning prayer she taught us: “This is a good day to die.”The pandemic is teaching us to value our time on Earth, to do what truly matters every day and let everything else go.The impermanence of life is why conscious communication is vital.Let us be at peace with every communication we have so that if it is our last, we have no regrets.
This message may seem somber to you. Yet, from my vantage point, it is a celebration of life. Every life has inherent meaning. When we are growing spiritually, we consciously weave deeper meaning into the fabric of our daily lives. I celebrate the death of my old self. What a life she led! Yes, it was fraught with challenges, and she used those challenges to grow spiritually. I am the product of her hard work and her continuance in an elevated form. I celebrate my birth and when the time comes; I intend to celebrate my passage from this Earth. I also plan to celebrate all the time in between.
Our Souls are the fireworks at which we gaze. Let us live in awe and wonder at the magnificence of our eternal Selves.

Write your eulogy. Do this as a process for achieving greater spiritual detachment. Feel the grief that arises as you detach from your life. Know that your freedom lies in your spiritual detachment.
After you complete your eulogy, sit with it. Review it over the course of a few days. Allow it to inform your future. What changes would you like to make now so that when you make your passing the eulogy of your Soul brings you peace? Commit to making these changes.
Adopt an attitude of celebration. At the end of every day, note the beauty in your life.
