The We and the Leapers through Cathee Courter:

We want to comment on how earlier several of you were talking about how you're constantly developing new gifts, and then before you can use them there are new opportunities, new teachers and new insights. It gets confusing. And this is important, because we don't want you to burn out with there being always more and more new ideas.

There are so few people awake on this planet at this time. Imagine being a fairly evolved nature spirit, guide, or being who is here from another planet to help, looking out at humanity. Cathee was an exchange student in Japan, and she remembers being in an airport, a big crowded place. Her short Japanese father came up to her shoulder and she could see over his head. In fact, she could see over just about everybody's head to the few other tall U.S. exchange students who were way far away over there, and way far away over there. That's how you stand out to us, as lights in this world. Not even just as evolved beings, but as beings who are soul family. We just kind of see you. There may be billions of people, but oh, there's Thelea, there's Jill.

There's a swarm of us that want to support you and help you evolve, and yes, work with you. And we kind of elbow each other. We realize that we shouldn't do that because it's overstimulating, and we try to pull back, but then we talk to you in the dream state and it's so wonderful. We want you to remember that conversation when you're awake, and we come by. We don't mean to blow your bodies out—we realize one thing at a time works best in 3D, and we do want you to be in your bodies sometimes, and that's a little bit slower. So it's a problem. And it's a weird problem, because we're very aware that even within our own soul family there's a wide range of abilities and levels of awakeness. There are many people in our own soul family we have no chance to really communicate with or to get their attention.

So you're special. That's why you're overstimulated. [laughs]

And there is that great computer in the sky that computes what's the next best thing for you to study or who to communicate with. But that still can be very quickly changeable. It's not really like we're competing with other guides. There's a sense of rightness of where the whole group blob that you're a part of wants to go, and how people resonate with each other and connect. It's not a competitive thing, but there are many, many potential opportunities that quickly come and move. And since you all are becoming more awake multi-dimensionally every day, you are able to handle a lot more information, stimulation and interaction on other dimensional levels than you ever could before. But you don't necessarily know that you can handle more. And you're in a world that is doing it pseudo, is blasting you with overstimulation from media and so forth, which makes it harder to be able to handle the genuine stimulation of good contacts.

We're apologizing, we guess. We get so excited.

So this is an advertisement for the leap. We can leap you to where you can handle a whole lot more, and you don't have to gradually get there, step by step. We can leap you to even a nervous system that can handle more, overnight. And we would actually recommend that.

When you're taking the lid off the cookie jar, and it's a big multi-dimensional world all of a sudden, most people that we work with we're trying to help slow down rather than open up. Many people are taking workshops to open up multi-dimensionally, but for most people we're working with, it's about how to help you handle it.

How many Leapers are there?

We are a different kind of being. In 3D especially, you're used to individual selves having certain identities and names. We are a kind of intelligence, you might say, like the weather.

The energy right now feels so wonderful, it's bringing me to tears. The vibration feels so full and so passionate, with so much heart. I love how this feels.

We would love to be with you every day. Every day.

It's so thick. It's kind of an atmospheric intelligence.

This is not necessarily how we experience ourselves, but from the human perspective, we are a function of the soul family, like the heart and liver are functions in the body. We are the ones that read the whole soul family and make suggestions of what next incarnation could further the growth, love and richness of the whole soul family. So if you see the whole soul family as an organism, we have a function within that organism.

You tend to see yourselves as separate selves within the soul family. We're hesitating to talk like this, because some people kind of freak when we do. Because in your culture's psychotherapeutic understanding, you go through certain stages, and become a mature "fully actualized" human being, which implies a pretty separate selfhood. But if you see yourself primarily as the overall organism, but you also are playing a function within it, then you can morph pretty radically and quickly.

[To participant:] You came in partly with the purpose of working out some understandings with your mother, to explore the neurotic mother/child relationship. And it's very rich. [laughs] And then the whole soul family says, oh well that was interesting, but we think we've already milked that one for as much richness as we can through you. But you have all these talents and insights, and wouldn't it be grand if your focus then moved to movement and breathwork? And so your focus changes, and you say, "I have changed. I am now interested in this." But from our perspective, the whole soul family wanted to explore movement, and it decided that you were the best aspect of us to do that exploration through. We think it's beautiful to come down into polarity and do it as the singular identity of you, but the reason you were suddenly attracted to movement is because it fulfills something for the whole soul family. And so you morph over to that.

Our function is to always be feeling what our whole soul family wants to explore and interact with next, and make suggestions. You, the separate self, are a part of these decisions. You are a part of the we, the oversoul, so it's not like you're just a puppet. You are part of the whole that's deciding.

We may say, well, it's pretty rich to explore the neurotic mother/daughter relationship. So we'll have one parallel version of you doing that. But we may suggest, let's split off another version of you that will explore movement. And it may be that what the version of you who is still working with the mother thing needs is movement. And so then you on the new parallel will be informing her. She will get this bleedthrough, this subconscious knowledge all of a sudden, and feel like she has more tools to work with without necessarily taking a movement class. Your parallel is taking the class and feeding that experience into the whole. But since you're closer to your parallels, they'll probably get a stronger flavor of it, and you may be communicating with them in the dream state and so forth.

So it's very, very complex. It's like an amoeba moving.

When I leap, is someone going to continue the track that I'm on right now, and then I'm gonna inform her where she is?

This is possible. We can't tell you right now, as it hasn't been determined.

I'd like to leap the whole system of all my parallels. I've got a lot of people to save.

That's precious. That tells us you're understanding exactly what we're saying when you say "leap me all."

So we're the beings that look at the chess board and see all of this going on. How many are there of us? It's hard to separate us into separate beings. We often speak as one, although we are a range of facets of ourselves.

You're not the nature spirits, either.

We are of the nature realm, in that we hold reality together. We see ourselves as having a devic function, rather than human one, although our whole soul family is composed of nature/human interface beings, of course. You might call us the keepers of incarnation.

[To another participant:] In each of the different communities you have explored, there is a version of you that is living in them, still exploring. And so you will be drawing on the wisdom of all those communities. Your reading books about how different communities are structured is pretty pale compared to the knowledge you're gaining on the inner planes from experiencing many of them. You can, if you wish, have a more direct inquiry into how it's going in a certain setting. You can tap into a gut sense of "how am I doing there?" You develop how you want that knowledge to come to you. For instance, it could come to you in a dream, or through journaling, or by asking specifically verbally. We think many of your insights already of what you had misgivings about with this or that community, and what you were attracted to that you thought would work well, may come from a parallel self sending those feelings back to you in time. So it's hard to say what is precognition. Your insight that "I'm not sure we should join that community" may be an insight from the parallel self that did join it, communicating back, "ooh, this is kinda painful." Or "this is great." So you unconsciously are making those contacts with those parallels. It's just a matter of where in the time/space matrix you locate that information.

[To first participant:] Well, do you want to jump?

I do.

We would say that you already have started jumping. This is a gradual process. You've mentioned that you don't follow the news. That may have been from an instinctual knowing that it's no longer your news, leading to your future. When you moved to Colorado and went through a big change and had some unsettling times, we were very much a part of that. Because of your spiritual level of development, and your strong intention to have a big change, we were able to work with you pretty consciously through that time. So we feel that our relationship with you is not new by any means, that you know what you're getting into with us. You know how big a change can happen. So we're very delighted to be talking to you tonight. What we need to hear from you is more of what you see that you do want. This group started with us asking people to think, "If I could have anything, what would I want my world to be like?" And it's good to think of this even if you're already jumping and you know the process.

If you're thinking, "I create my own reality and I want to change something," that is different than for us to say we can jump you to something that would seem impossible to jump to in this reality. We want to make it clear that we can help you jump big, discontinuous with where you've been. So it's very important to dream. Think of what you really want—not what you think you can have in the old way of thinking, but what you really want.

For instance, Cathee wants a community with low electromagnetic fields (EMFs). She wants those cell towers down. In the old continuum, it's a pipe dream to think that they'll come down someday. But we can leap her to it. We're going to help her revise what she put on the web about EMFs. And in the new reality, her web page about that could become very influential, and there could be lots of like-minded people also wanting those towers down. So something that would not be likely to have happened had she not leapt really could happen. She's very excited about that, to just be able to breathe again electromagnetically, and feel the Earth again.

So we would encourage you to see what's really your heart's desire.

My heart's desire is to feel my heart more fully, just gushing with deliciousness all the time. And I want to be able to express it then, whether through sharing wisdom or voice or movement or art. I want to not hide from everything, to have the world expand and feel spacious and like home with intimacy.

We see several possibilities. There's sometimes a bit of a gap between what you want the most and what your talents are that could most serve the whole. Were we not consciously interacting with you in choosing this, we would probably see you moving into almost being more nature than human. And finding a way to bridge the human heart to the spirits of nature, only you'd be almost working more from the nature side of it than the human side of it.

Someone told me years ago that I was almost more of a fairy than a human.

That is more of what we think would be fulfilling to you. It's something that you know you are: one of us, trying to translate nature consciousness. How do you communicate to humans what that is? To do it from within a human body, acculturated to the human world—it makes you extremely valuable in that you are something that humans can relate to. You look like a human, anyway. [laughs] And you know English very well, and how humans tick. A lot of nature beings kind of know how humans tick, but how humans tick is so strange that they can't quite trust their gut instinct that, yes, this is really how humans tick—they really are that strange. [laughs] So patience with humans.

That's where we see you naturally fitting in. But there are other things in your heart, and you may be leaping into several parallels. That's the other twist on this. You may leap out several parallels.

This is very rich for those who have a certain maturity. Once you no longer have to rationally understand why you're doing what you're doing, and where exactly it will lead, like coursework in college—you take prerequisites, and then you end up with a degree. Once you can step back from that and just be flowing in today's experience, and tomorrow's experience may be different, then you're tapping into wisdom far beyond what your mind can even understand. And you're able to say what needs to be said when it needs to be said, and then let it go. Many people are moving more and more into that.

Then it's like our earlier conversation. The guides told you that they're so attracted to certain people. They tend to be the people who are at the level where today they can be working with this guide, tomorrow be doing something totally different, and be OK with it, because there's not a very focussed sense of selfhood in the human sense of you do step A, step B, and you get the degree. Where you just are willing to be whatever needs to be that day, let happen through you whatever needs to happen, and flow with it. In that sense, there may be several yous that come out of the leap, but there could be just one who is really flexible. We're talking about living more and more in the now, and that now holding a very multi-dimensional and multi-faceted sense of self.

We think it would be very rich for you to leap into more of coming from the non-human towards the human, more towards your identity involving "how can I help the humans?" Not how can I help us humans. Those humans. So we would want to support you in that not being a weird thing, but a beautiful thing. Nature doesn't get hung up on a sense of self in a role as much as humans do—you know, I am a teacher, I am a dancer, I am whatever. Nature flows; the weather changes all the time; what needs to happen here, oh they need rain, OK, let's precipitate here.

If you want to go there, we would want to support you in saying it's OK to not feel totally human. It's OK to not have to have a role per se. It's OK to not have to have a strong sense of selfhood. Your educational background is therapy-oriented, and the bias of this human culture has been that the healthy, mature person has a selfhood. Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries, and all that. Our soul family is pretty hopeless with boundaries anyway. We merge, and then people call us co-dependent and it's like, well, that's an interesting term. What if merging is actually a talent? And being able to feel someone else's feelings, and maybe even trying to tweak those feelings a little bit for them is alright, because the two of us have joined into one being, and then we shift. And then we separate out. And people call that co-dependent? No, that's the ability to merge in and separate out. That's simplistic, but there are whole different ways of looking at these things.

Part of the discontinuity for you that is coming, but you're already sensing, is feeling like you're faking it in the world. You may feel like half the roles that you play are faking it. But they're not really. They're just being in the moment. Oh, you want me to be a teacher today? Fine, I'm a teacher. But part of you may say, this is weird, because I wasn't a teacher yesterday, why do I think I can tell people I'm a teacher today? Well, because that's what you are today. And for you to be OK with that, we wouldn't want to leap you too far.

It's just a hat you change.

It's just a hat. Other people seem to really get into being a teacher. You may envy people that get to have an identity. "I'm a teacher." It's kind of grounding, stabilizing. "I have an identity."

Part of me is looking to establish myself, to make a living. That involves an identity, probably.

Not necessarily. And that may be something that you want to write into your leap, too, to have money in abundance without having to earn it.

That sounds good.

What would you really like, deep in your heart?

I would like to have a lot of money, if it's earned with ease through my hats that I wear. But I don't want the pressure of having to establish myself in that way.

It is like what we tell Cathee, that she needs to get used to in this leap going ahead and doing things that she has no idea how to do. But if she just does them, she knows how. But that self-concept of "oh, I know how to do this," is not going to be there for her in this leap, because she's moving into things she's never done before, and has never been taught. But she's starting to get a feel for what it would be like to have a non-profit and to be a visible figurehead of that. And to interact with people from a role that she just would find herself in without ever having built up to it.

A non-identity identity.

Yes. Today there needs to be a co-director of a non-profit, so I guess I'll do that. And people talk to me as if I'm that, so I'll just talk back.

Yesterday Cathee reread a book that she wrote ten years ago. It's all about we, and how who she is, is we. She is a part of we, so from that standpoint she is co-creating her leap, her parallel self. She's part of the weness, so the separateness is kind of there. But generally, to move your identity to seeing yourself as "I am the we in the form of Cathee" helps. Or "I am the we in the form of Phil," or whomever. And if that's really more your identity, then it's kind of fun to be Phil. It's not a struggle or responsibility. It's like, how delightful, I get to be the we in the form of Phil. What a blessing.

Here we are, a subgroup of we—the Leapers and all of you—having a little conference. How do we want to divvy up what needs to happen right now on Earth at this time to make an impact? We could sit here and discuss among ourselves, I think this one of us has this talent more and that one has that, and another has that aspect. Should we do it this way, or should we do it that way, as far as letting our weness—our group soul—come through these available bodies, personalities, and histories? And do we want to split off new parallels here? This is exactly what we do in the dreamtime. We sit around like this and do this. And then you see each other and there's a recognition during the day, and you say "I feel really comfortable with them." They are you in a way. So who can you trust more than someone that you are? It's quite delightful.

It's especially delightful for us to be able to talk to you in your waking conscious state. This is a rare treat for us to be able to do this here. And we see no reason that we can't be talking on this conscious 3D level a lot, in whatever we leap you to. That can be more of a normal thing. We're especially happy to get out of the pure guide mode. Largely, humanity's gone from "God knows everything—I'm just a little worm." To "your guides love you and they're guiding you in the right ways." To "I'm sitting at the conference table too, and weighing in what I want and what I see, as well as what you see." And we're delighted that you're at that level where we don't have to be omniscient, because we're not. We do want your opinions. You are the experts on what it's like to be incarnate. We keep saying that, but it's so true. You know a lot more than we do about what it's really like to be in the human body and trying to live a life here. So your opinion of where "we" goes, and what needs to happen in this physical reality really matters to us.

I want my body to become less dense. I have a sensation that I'm trying to make my tissues breathe more. I want my body to do a better job of letting my spirit expand.

It's almost inevitable that this will happen anyway, in getting to where you want to go. If you don't want to be in the parallel version that's going down, chances are good that you're going to end up in a parallel version where the body is less dense.

What would be a huge leap for me? I don't even know what a small leap would be. What would be outrageous?

To be a guide to people while being incarnate, present with them. To be working with people on the inner planes, on the inner realities. People think of gurus as this—their guru knows them, they can feel them on the inner plane, but they still get to see them in person. To be able to handle that level of intimacy with people. With psychotherapists, the convention now is that your client comes to you and tells you what they want to grow through, and what they want your role to be with them in that process. For example, "I want to work through my anger issues, could you help me?" There are boundaries. With channeling and psychic work, people come to Cathee with a different agreement, that we're going to come through and see what they need. They don't have to tell us necessarily, although it's good if they do because then we get a dialogue going. But for you, it'd be good to get comfortable at admitting to yourself that when someone comes to you, you see what they need before they even open their mouth.

I usually do. I come up with my own assessment before they state it.

Now you probably are mainly working with them when they actually are with you. You're probably not doing a lot of sending love to them, and even when they're not with you, psychically guiding them.

At least I'm not aware that I am.

And that's where we think the whole psychotherapeutic model is actually evolving to. Cathee has stumbled over this, that she wants to really get in there with people's lives. And this is why we don't let her do a lot of channeling for people. She gets so wrapped up in people's lives, and we'd rather have her stand back and write and channel information for many people, not just personal. The truth is that people don't interact only when they're sitting in the therapist's office. There's a lot more that goes on.

It then involves you at particular times saying—and this is really going to the level of a higher meddling, which the guides do all the time—I think what needs to happen on Earth in this parallel that I'm in is for people to. . . . Let's use our favorite example of martyrdom as one archetype. I want to help shift the archetype of martyrdom, of victimhood. So I'm going to call to myself people who are entrenched in that archetype. But I'm going to work with them in shifting to a new archetype, and so I am meddling. People may come to me to work with their victimhood or their martyrdom, and I'm making a value judgment that martyrdom is not a good archetype for them to be in any more. And so I am going to work with planting new ideas, bringing in new archetypes.

Now, what if you take that to where once you have an agreement with someone that they're ready for a new archetype, that you just go ahead and instill that in their energy field? And then you're probably working on a bigger level with many guides who are trying to plant this new archetype into many people's energy fields, and to help to erase the old. At what level, then, does that become meddling? And at what level is that just much faster than talk therapy?

This is the Leapers but also guides that are involved in this who are talking now, because we're struggling with this ourselves. We feel that human free will has been taken too far. And what we see in this old parallel that's going down, is human will/freedom taken to a point where you've almost lost your free will because you've held up rebellious free will as a concept that's so strong that you no longer have the free will to counteract it and find divine will. You can say I want divine will instead of free will, but what if you lose your choice to do that? So at what point in the evolution of the species, and in what parallel, is it OK to say the new archetypes are coming in, and they're going to override certain old archetypes? Human free will is an archetype. This is something even the angels struggle with. How aggressively can you move in there, even to help heal someone's heart, without taking away their boundaries and conscious free will?

We see on this particular parallel that the forces of darkness have almost developed such a forcefield that people have lost their ability to choose or not choose that at times. Especially when you are in a high EMF environment where you're brain-fogged, you can't think, and you're being so pelted by media images that are subliminal. Do you really even have free will at that point, when a lot of it's subliminal and on other levels than rational?

So then do the powers of light come in, and do they in the name of not forcefully taking over people hold back too much? It's a really tricky situation on Earth right now.

Please don't hold back too much, because it's almost like the new free will is to be the ultimate victim. That's definitely the end of divine free will.

How tragic, yes.

I find myself not being a passive therapist. I get directive, because I want to point out how someone isn't taking responsibility for something and empower them. But they have to handle the level of transformation.

So if you ally your self-image with "Spirit"—with the forces of nature, of meaning, of the beings that hold the archetypes for the new age that you're helping to create—and you're just channeling that. Then if you're bringing in new archetypes, you're not being objective. You're not allowing for people to hang on to their old ones. You are part of a universal movement that says "now it's time to move and change, and transform these archetypes." Is that invasive, or is that just what is? It's time to change.

And for us as Leapers, to work with people who consciously want to leap is very much a process of going back into the weness with them, and then coming out in a new parallel. It is a re-creation of the person. But we're very much a part of who they become, and it really is a merging. Merging is maybe another word for just going back into the oneness together, which is real. What you call merging is being consciously aware of the oneness that was always there.

This is delicious for us to be able to talk on this level with you incarnate beings.

You've talked in the past about nature taking on more will, and humans actually losing free will. It sounds like our soul family, because we're both nature and human, and we may become a vehicle for nature to take on more will and bring new paradigms or new archetypes to the human side.

That's beautifully put. Thank you. Yes. Yes.

Cathee: Let's go into silence now. Feel the Leapers' support. Let yourself be almost like a baby being held, a baby that's being taken to the next place. And feel how held you are by the universe, how supported, how much you can trust and relax into being nurtured, being held.
