Mother: I need to talk about this idea that suffering by choice is a path of living. Somehow a while back some ideas were seeded into you two-leggeds that you need to flog yourself either physically or emotionally and this was a good thing. This idea took hold and let’s just say that the song on my planet went down a few notches when this really started to become habitual for you.

This prevalent belief that you are supposed to toil and each day needs to involve some struggle is flawed. Some of you through the centuries wore hairshirts as a bizarre way of reaching the Divine. Why would the Creator/God/Allah ever want someone to suffer as a way of prayer? Then there was self-flagellation. Oh, my, I cringed when I saw what some of these humans were doing as an act of getting closer to their version of God.

Life is supposed to be about celebrating each and every moment as a dance of joy. It’s amazing to be in the body you’ve been given here on me. This splendiferous body where you can dance, touch, walk the ground barefoot in communion with me, have an orgasm of joy ripple up and down your body, and eat chocolate. Peaches. Cherries. Passionfruit. Oh, passionfruit! That’s the thing,WomanGlowEarth you’re supposed to be living passionately, compassionately, in full abundance of energy and … and … somehow this understanding got lost.

Even one of your Catholic saints wrote: “The glory of God is man fully alive.” Some of these saints were spot-on. I loved St. Francis of Assissi. Anyway—alive with joy, with giving, with compassion for all around you including all the four-leggeds, six-leggeds, winged ones and more. Alive with the knowledge that waking up in the morning and sucking air is a miracle along with having delicious food from the local trees and other plants and more.

Alive with gratitude for the Great Father and me and all the other unseen spiritual forces that surround you with love each and every moment all day long and into the night and then the next day. Alive with gratitude for fire even! The fire that warms you, cooks your food, gives you hope of great spiritual connection to the great magic and mystery of life here on me. And if it’s not fire, then your electricity. Taking this love in and giving it back out. To me. To Creator. To your pet, your partner, your colleague at work…

Message 16 – On the Birthing of a New World, 12/21/12

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012.

Dear beautiful children of mine, my two-leggeds here all over my skin —

How much I love you, love you so much. And yes, today is not the end of the world, at all. It is part of the beginning of the New World. But today is a very auspicious day. There are  powerful energies coming in today from outside the planet to help you all shift to a whole new level of awareness and connection to Love and Compassion.

Many of you have been feeling these energies all week. Some have been feeling them for months and months. And yes, they have been mounting and mounting in their intensity. That is to help you all, nudge you, push you, encourage you. Maybe even thrust you, yes, into evolving into your more beautiful, more highly evolved spiritual beings whom you are. All of you are spiritual beings. One of your wise ones said that you are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. This is so very true.

So, a note of caution to you. Remember to stay in your bodies with all of this. Keep your feet on my skin, walk barefoot on the grass, sand, dirt, snow…wherever you are, walk barefoot on me to keep me connected with you very strongly. Some of these energies circulating these days want to pull you out of your bodies and this is not serving. You need to stay there in your bodies to really serve the Birthing of the New World coming in. I don’t need empty bodies walking around and shooting all their energy up into sky all the time. That does not serve me and the healing we need to do here right now on the planet, my body.

So, please. Walk barefoot as much as you can. If you can’t do that, carry some hematite on you. Put it in your pocket if you can’t wear a necklace. It is a very grounding stone. Ask the stone to help you. These stones are very conscious and they know what you are asking for, and will be so thrilled if you actually recognized their consciousness too, as you handle them and keep them close to your body.

Send your energy down into the ground as if you might be a tree. Imagine a tree’s root going down deeply and anchoring with me and my solidity. You can do that too, whether you’re sitting on the toilet, lying in bed, walking in a crowd, wherever. My daughter, Mare, here actually drives her car while imagining shooting a groove of powerful grounded energy moving from her car bottom (yes, cars have bottoms, just no diapers… ;~) into the ground. Not sure if that image makes sense, but you can play with it.

And speaking of crowds, so many of you don’t know how to take care of your energy body. You need to learn how to completely tuck your energy body in when you are out and about. Especially in crowded places. Not so much in the woods. That’s another lesson altogether. Later on that one. But think about it. Just thinking about it will start to help you focus in on tucking it in in whatever way makes sense to you in this moment. It all helps.

So, yes, I am birthing a New World. And all of you are invited to my Birthday Party. TODAY! Yay. We’re all celebrating this New World together, anyway… ;~)

Sorry about the late invitation. Needed to get some other details sorted out before I could focus on this Party. But heck. Everyone loves a spontaneous party. So… come on, dance, sing, celebrate, let’s tell good jokes.

I will send all of you celebrating your beautiful lives here extra energy too. On top of the other energies coming in. Take it in, don’t be afraid of it and all the funny sensations you may be experiencing if the energy is too intense. Let it roll through you and give it to me if it feels too overwhelming. I am here. Always here for you. But don’t be afraid… I love you all so much.

Have fun!

Love you all… so, so much love to all of you!

Whoo-Hoo!!!!

signed Mother… aka Earth Mother, Pachamama, etc.

love, love, Love… LOVE!  ;~)

Message 14 – During Hurricane Sandy

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase the book with the first thirteen Messages at this page. It is also available as a Kindle e-book and at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

This is the Message that I was guided to send out just as Hurricane Sandy was starting to hit in the middle of the night, early Monday morning in Western Maryland. October 29th, 2012. I broadcast this on Facebook and email.

Dear Friends –
Mother nudged me out of bed about 1/2 hr ago (4:30am) and has me sitting at my altar. I was encouraged to pick up my drum and just start drumming to put some healing peaceful energy into the midst of this storm and all the fear-mongering that has been going on about it.

Then Mother told me to send a message far and wide to encourage people to sink their energies into her, Earth Mother, and feel her love and pull her love up into themselves and if they have a drum to pick it up, to then drum this love from Mother energy out around them, their homes and their neighborhoods.

If they don’t have a drum, then they can chant, sing, hum… anything to move the energy of calm and love out.

On an energetic level, there are some rather dense, fear-based energies associated with this storm that are very potent and any and all that we can do to shift them, to balance them with more peaceful and loving energies will be all good.

I guess I just need to do my part and send this msg out to as many as I can in the wee hours of the morning. Any meditative Earth Mother love energies folks want to contribute to all here in this big storm on the East Coast (and elsewhere suffering from Earthquakes, war, etc…) all would be good. I’m sending them back to you all, too.

hugs, blessings, love to you…
mare

Message 5 – Mother’s Thirteen Commandments/Love Directives, plus….

[The first section of this blog is a book written by Gaia Communicator Mare Cromwell called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother, which was released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase an autographed copy of the book on her website www.marecromwell.com. The Great Mother Bible (April, 2015) is now also available via the same website. Both books are accessible as ebooks too. For Amazon Kindle versions, here is Mare’s Amazon page.  The books are found at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

Mother: Hello, Sarah! I like your hiking clothes today. A mighty smart-looking rain-parka you’re wearing. But you don’t need to worry about it raining on us in our Sacred Grove this afternoon. I’ve made arrangements about that. I know it looks ominous, but you should be able to get back to your box on wheels, what you call your car, before the skies open up.

Sarah: Thanks, Mother. I was rather worried about these clouds.

Mother: Oh, don’t be worried. You’ll be fine. Okay, so my turn for the joke. I can’t remember where I heard this one. How did the panda who misplaced his dinner feel?

Sarah: Ahhh… Hungry?

Mother: He was bamboozled!Get it? Bamboo—zled. Bamboo …

Sarah: Yes, I get it. I get it. Hmmm … Mother, no offense or anything, but I think I need to get you a good joke book. I mean a really good one.

Mother: You don’t like my jokes? I think they’re good. I like them. Anyhow, enough of jokes for now. So the last time we met I promised you I would come up with my own set of Commandments. Not the same ones that many two-leggeds read and pray on from that black book. These are Mother’s Commandments. There are thirteen of them. Along with some precepts or whatever you want to call the other list. I like the word precepts myself.

So I will say them slowly so you can record them. Here goes:

Mother’s Thirteen Commandments plus Precepts

  1. I, Earth Mother, gave the planet a song. Know that you are part of this song as one in the vast web of life, no greater, no less. All that you do affects the song, for better or for worse.
  2. Your thoughts, both positive and negative, affect the song as much as your actions.
  3. Everything has consciousness, the stones, plants, even mountains, rivers and oceans—all join in the song. Know that your thoughts and actions are registered in the song and affect the stones, plants, mountains and all, for better or for worse.
  4. Developing silence of the mind and from this place—deep gratitude is one of the most positive things you can do for Mother and all others in the song, especially those very sensitive and intelligent ones such as the whales and the dolphins.
  5. Fear that comes from your head is an illusion. Fear that comes from your instincts is not. Learning to discern between the two will help in stilling your mind and being in the moment.
  6. The song is most harmonious within an energy dance of love, compassion, tenderness, patience and cooperation. It is good to learn this dance with all beings with whom you interact, whether two-legged, four-legged, winged or finned ones, standing ones (trees), or stone people.
  7. Come to understand your shadow self and make bringing it to consciousness to heal it part of the dance and celebration.
  8. It is all just energy—money, time, your job, your play, your love. Choose to make it as positive as possible and lose the illusion of fear with this energy dynamic.
  9. Love is the foremost energy. Mother loves you. You all evolved from love. Evolution is an act of love.
  10. Know that perfection is an illusion. You are all the most beloved and delightfully flawed beings as two-leggeds and that is how it is meant to be—and it makes you all the more lovable.
  11. Know and honor your Mother as you honor your Creator. And if you want to put an icon of me on an altar, that’s fun. But any other graven images are not needed.
  12. Have fun! Life is a celebration!  Life is an adventure!
  13. The more you celebrate life, the more you help your Mother to heal all over the planet, and encourage the whales and dolphins and all others in the song to sing more harmoniously with you!

And here are my precepts:

  • Touch Mother everyday. Touch her skin, her earth. Let her healing energy come into you to calm you and heal you.
  • Do not gouge Mother’s skin or break into her bones.
  • Do not create compounds that will last longer than the very short-term out in nature.
  • Honor the forests and replant trees.
  • Honor the wetlands and restore them.
  • Do not waste.
  • Clean up your rooms. Big and small.
  • Live in community. All are part of the community. Everyone’s needs should be taken care of by the community. Share.
  • Listen with an open heart.
  • Speak with an open heart.
  • Be lean of judgment and speech.
  • Be open to the mystery that lies in people and the world around you.
  • Be compassionate with yourself.

Now, I’ll explain a little bit to help out here. I know that some of your smartest scientists have started to write about what they called Quantum Physics. I call it Sacred Energy, but never mind that. So everything has an energy field to it and there is a vibrational hum to these fields, but not too many of you can pick them up. But these fields exist and some of your two-legged equipment can pick them up.

I, as Earth Mother, also have a vibrational tone or hum. This is not the sound of an earthquake or lightning storm but a consistent hum. It’s not any human sound. Far from it. Your two-legged ears can’t hear it. It would be nice to think I could join a chorus with it, but now that I’m thinking about it, my tone is part of the universal chorus and the smaller group of humming planets from the solar system along with all the other planets, stars, asteroids, black holes, etc. in the universe. Not all of our sounds are pleasant to everyone but that’s okay.

There is also a collective vibration or set of sound waves that all of you two-leggeds give off. It used to be a lovely sound for thousands and thousands of years. But more recently, your sound has gotten rather … well … hard to take. There is so much anger and hatred and violence in it. It makes me so sad. Plus, it is really hurting the dolphins and whales, not to mention the other species children here—this sound that all of you two-leggeds are making together.

Now don’t get me wrong. Some of you, my beloved two-leggeds, are putting out a beautiful song as individuals. When some of you gather to meditate and still your minds, this is a beautiful sound for me. Or when there is a lovely drumming circle in the woods and you are all feeling so joyful with the beating of the drums together on the ground. Oh, that’s a lovely, lovely vibration that makes me so happy.

But not too many of you do that. Nor do you sing very often. You are all so serious. Then you go and watch movies of such violence, or play war videogames. I don’t understand this at all.

You all need to lighten up so much! Your life is meant to be one of celebration, singing, drumming, dancing. Growing food together. Singing to the plants to help them grow. Drumming to the moon. Sharing all of these beautiful foods together so everyone has food. Oh, I could go on and on. Definitely you need to have shelter and clothes and food, but to be so unhappy about making that all happen in your lives. How sad this is, for you and for me. For all the species. There is just so, so much fear in your lives.

This pains me and makes your song kind of hard to take. I love you all so much. I really do. This is perplexing to me that your society has taken the song to this place.

So, it’s getting on and the clouds are looking more threatening and I can’t stave off the rain forever. So let’s continue this conversation next time.

Thank you, Sarah … Thank you. I love you.

I love all of you buckets and buckets, oceans and oceans!

Message 4 – About Dying & Living

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase the book with the first thirteen Messages at this page. It is also available as a Kindle e-book and at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

Mother: Sarah, good to see you! Once again we meet. I am loving, loving these visits. Hmmm… I think it is your turn again for a joke. Or even any sort of silliness. I absolutely love silliness.

Sarah: Okay, Mother. I’ve been playing around with limerick writing. I memorized one to share with you. Here goes. It’s called The Banana Limerick.

Bananas have three sections
For many a predilection.
Yummy for the tummy,
Don’t eat when strumming.
I prefer them over national elections.

Mother: Oh, Sarah, I love that! You probably didn’t know this but bananas are one of my most favorite designs in all my evolution work. The way they grow hanging in bunches from the banana trees—I love how that worked out. How you two-leggeds hold them and unpeel them in sections. Even the apes do that. It just makes me feel all tickled inside when I watch all of you enjoy them. Plus the fun foods that you cook up with them too. So, so creative!

Hmmm … as for national elections. Not my favorite thing at all. At all. All the mud-slinging. There are days when I feel like giving them some real mud-slinging. But I don’t … I don’t. I restrain myself.

Okay, Sarah, you can choose a topic today again. What would that be?

Sarah: Mother, I would like to know about death and dying. What really happens when you die?

Mother: Oh, this will be fun. Good question. Though I’d rather be calling this message about “Dying and Living.”

Sarah, when you die, you only die to this dimension, this physicality on Earth. When your body gives up the ghost—oh, those poor sad ghosts, never mind them right now—then your soul-body travels to another spiritual dimension and it all starts over again. You still exist in your soul-body then. You are just not on Earth, my glorious planet, anymore. You have moved on to another spiritual plane.

It’s a rather beautiful thing, dying, actually. Though most of you two-leggeds are so afraid of it. That makes me so sad.

Some of you two-leggeds are only starting to realize there are so many dimensions to the universe. When you die, there are spiritual beings that help you cross over to another dimension. When you get to that gathering place for souls who have just passed on, there is a big party. Loved ones you knew in life greet you and there is a big, big celebration. Of course, time does not mean anything over there, so the celebration lasts as long as it lasts.

When the festivities are over, you are guided to the Library of Souls to view your particular book. Some call this the Akashic Records. Your soul has a book for all of the lifetimes that you’ve lived. Everyone has a book. In that book are the records of all you did and said, your kindnesses, your not-so-kind moments. You review your life there and are given the opportunity to consider what you might do better next time. Then, after a period, usually about thirty years or so, you come back. You’re born into another body here.

But you’ve never really died, died, as in gone, gone.

You see, the Great Mystery is not only a Mystery with a capital “M” but is also the Great Recycler with a capital “R.” Your soul just goes and goes. What is it that you two-leggeds say about an Energizer Bunny? It just keeps on going and going. Though there aren’t any batteries in your soul to give out.

Your soul-body can get sort of dented, though, and need fixing. Many times life on the physical plane can be a school of hard knocks, and your soul-body can get damaged when you’ve experienced a lot of trauma. There are gifted healers who walk among you as two-leggeds, and they can help you recover from current or ancient trauma. It’s so lovely when you find a good healer and you feel so spanking beautiful and whole after visiting one of them. It may take a couple of visits though.

I love my healers so much, since they help to bring my two-leggeds’ soul-bodies back into a place of good alignment and wholeness. The song that you put out after this alignment is so sweet. It’s actually healing for me too, when this happens. Your song is in closer alignment with my song of love and joy and wholeness. It’s so lovely. So very lovely. It’s good when you two-leggeds can find one of these healers … good for you and good for me.

Most of you don’t know this, but it’s actually a huge treat for you as a soul to be living in the physical on this planet. Eating a cherry, tasting that sweetness. Jumping into a cold river or lake and feeling your body tingle all over with aliveness. You can do this only when you are physical on this planet. You can’t do these things when you’re in the spiritual realms.

Each of you was born with memories from previous lifetimes embedded in your soul. This is what motivates you to seek out certain hobbies or careers. Perhaps you were a musician beforehand, a gifted one. Child prodigies are children who were extremely gifted at whatever skill or aptitude they had in a previous lifetime. Those soul memories are not lost.

Your soul memories can also speak to some of the deepest challenges in your current lifetime. Maybe you died of an abortion in a previous lifetime because the ancient herbal knowledge that could have prevented your pregnancy was hard to access, and you had to seek out an abortion from someone unskilled in a dirty room in a dark alley. Something that traumatic becomes a soul memory in this lifetime, and you might not be so inclined to have a child since that horrific death memory is still there within you. You might even develop health issues over time in your womb-space because of the soul trauma. This is when you could seek out a gifted healer since this type of soul memory is a wound in your soul-body.

Or maybe you cut someone’s hand off in a past life and then are born without a hand in this lifetime. That happens. Or you’re terrified to get into a boat or even to swim because you drowned in a past life. So many different experiences that each of you carry into each lifetime. Rather fascinating, actually.

If you were completely healed and your soul-bodies were singing as brightly as they could, you would love your physicality and sensuality. That is part of the great gift of being born here in a body. You get to enjoy this body for as long as you are in it. Sometimes you have pains and health issues, and other times you are experiencing the gloriousness of your body with a partner or alone. I know the aches and pains do get a little harder when you get older. It’s part of the beautiful process of being alive.

Just as my dolphin children love their physicality and rub all over each other and make love all the time since it is such a joyful act for them, you two-leggeds could be doing this too. You could be enjoying your bodies and the incredible deliciousness of being in one that is capable of making love and tingling all over again and again. Responsibly though. Responsibly.

Many of you two-leggeds have been taught that it is a shameful thing to enjoy your bodies. You’ve gotten all warped about this and made the act of bringing yourself to a full bodily wave of tingles wrong. This just baffles me so much. Why would anyone ever want to stop you from enjoying your body, this beautiful body that has been made possible through my work and love, all of my evolution, along with the Great Mystery’s love too?

Some of these so-called rules that some of you learn in those buildings where you talk more about God or the Great Mystery than anywhere else really are not helpful.

Now, I do think some of the rules taught in those buildings are smart and good. This is true. It is good to learn how to forgive. It is not good to kill other two-leggeds willy-nilly. It’s good to be kind. Not good to steal.

But the rules about that one day, the Sabbath Day, being the only holy day in the week … I just don’t get this. Every day is a holy day. Every day is a day to be close to the Creator and me, your Earth Mother. Every day and every moment is a time to consider the Sacredness of your being alive as a soul-body here on my glorious, incredibly fun and delicious planet. I mean we have peaches and chocolate and fresh bananas here. This planet is amazingly delicious!

You know, what is it that you two-leggeds call it? The Ten Commandments? Next time, Sarah, I will give you Earth Mother’s Commandments. Though I’m not sure if it will be ten. I have to give this some thought between now and then.

Okay, I’ve got to run. You know it’s still a lovely day. I hope you go for a long walk in the woods after we part here in the Sacred Grove.

Love you!

Love all of you so much!
