Shifting with the Perennial Principles: Truth, Beauty and Goodness by Anyaa T. McAndrew

My husband Gary & I were talking about what kind of winter we want to experience, and then we pulled the card Abundance, 3 of cups. We discussed how that meant to us that we were to practice more appreciation and express our love to each other more often. Goodness, Goddess, Love, Light….are all the same thing to me. I need Goodness to have a reason to live. They are a basic requirement to move through a winter where Gaia is birthing and the world as we have known it is shattering. 

I watched a short video tonite featuring an amazing song called “Creation Calls” and footage from the Planet Earth: Complete BBC Series. It was some of the most beautiful mother nature probably ever photographed. Beauty. How can we live without it and stay sane? I have never purchased a song from a Christian singers’ album, but I downloaded that beautifully arranged piece. The song calls me to honor heaven and earth and the intense human journey we are walking between them right now. Check it out at 

Gary & I are hosting Conscious Transition community meetings in our Full Moon Sanctuary here in the mountains. We come together every few weeks or so and talk about how we are feeling, what we are doing to prepare, and what we believe about this Great Turning that we are in. That’s Truth. We seem to need to speak it aloud and express ourselves to feel connected. I noticed something really wonderful happening at our last meeting. The more we moved around the circle and the more personal truth was spoken, the more we all affirmed it in each other and spoke more of it. By the time we ended the meeting, everyone was filled with joy and enthusiasm.

Truth, Beauty and Goodness (Light, Love) seem to engender each other these days, They are bringing people together in ways that has perhaps never happened before, at least on this scale. If you cruise the internet, if you read your emails, if you talk to your people, you will find it, that is, if you are willing to move through your fears and see what is really happening on all levels.

On a physical level, we are hearing about the immanent collapse of the world monetary system, the violence, the people rising up and saying NO, the patriarchy striking back but still being challenged and exposed, the inept governments and silly politics. It’s trufascinating to witness the chaos and how it is all unraveling. On the other side the amazing inventions, ideas and potentials are staggering. I heard an interview last week with Benjamin Fulford and he encouraged us to take faith that the darkness this planet has seen for so long is indeed changing. Soon we may be able to actually invent and create the designs that have been suppressed for so long by the power elite. These days I am not even bothering to capitalize that term power elite as I have in the past. They are an outgoing ruling party all over the world.

Emotionally, the collective is breaking down and many are breaking through. Many of those I talk with express a very strong knowing that now is the time to work through our past and let it go. As my priestess sister Grandmother Ruth Anne says “We don’t need it anymore! I exist right here and right now”. As we complete a 16.4 billion year time wave, the past is in the way of our next step. So, many of us are participating in all kinds of processing work including Shamanic BreathworkTM, couple’s work, forgiveness work, recovery work, whatever works to gets us through the places where there is emotional stick-um. We really can get to a place where we feel good in our own skin, and in some kind of balance with enough truth, enough beauty and enough goodness.

Spiritually, the teachers and healers and celestial sourcers are giving us a mixed bag, but the same essential message. This is humanity’s butterfly moment! This is the time we have been waiting for and we are the Ones.  It is time to become multi-dimensional, loving, spirit-centered without letting religion get in the way, and with an Indigenous Spirit… trusting, open, wise, surrendered and  in love with the Earth. There are many messages about the civilizations here with us, assisting us behind the scenes and those of us who feel connected to the stars being called forward to help. If you are spiritually connected to what is happening, it seems that you are not only happily along for the ride, but ready to assist Mother Earth in her labor. As I am, you may be in awe of what is unfolding before our very eyes, because it is us!

This is the ride of our lives, of lifetimes, and we can choose to go through it kicking and screaming or with grace. It may not be easy at times, but if we can say yes to it, and feel gratitude and appreciation for the learnings, the many, many souls that are riding with us and those unseen realms that are assisting, we can be sure to be in the right place at the right time having just the right experience for our own leap in consciousness.

I myself am choosing to go through it with plenty of Truth; my eyes wide open in bearing witness to the suffering so that those who are suffering do not feel abandoned but blessed. I choose to help put an end to any suffering that I can influence, even if I simply imagine standing and watching on the inner planes. At the same time I choose to invest my witnessing in creating the new world, the promised birth into a new higher consciousness and thousands of years of peace, finally!

I have to have Beauty, too. To feel my own beauty, and the sensual beauty of nature and my four animals who along with the mountains, keep me connected to nature, is part of a daily experience that I ask for the Grace to never have to live without. I love really good healthy food, preparing it and enjoying it with my Beloved, my friends and my soul families. I cherish art and good music and lovemaking. A winter filled with friends and enjoyment of all kinds will deeply fulfill me.

And Goodness, Goddess, Love, Light  is the magnet that draws me forward in this transition. I get to learn how to vibrate faster, to open more fully to the celestial realms, to download more light and to express more love. When I slow down long enough I can feel the quickening, the intense energy that is coming through our atmosphere in the form of solar storms and comets and those energies I don’t have terms for. I feel and hear and see the Unity Consciousness that is taking root as hearts open, as my heart opens and we all collectively heal.

The leaves are turning in our Western North Carolina Mountains, and the view from my window affords me a daily panorama of Beauty. The Truth is that I can only live now and watch it unfold as I stay present with What Is. No one really knows what the future holds for any of us or for Earth. Great Mystery is in her finest hour. The Goodness calls me to seek the Light & Love of the Unseen Worlds and let it in.

May your Autumn be blessed with Truth, Beauty and Love.
