Stop, Look and Listen - a Society in Denial

30th June 2014

By Jennifer Deisher

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Beliefs can become patterns if you hold them long enough. People don’t like to have their belief systems challenged as sometimes they are the very foundation used to “survive”, emotionally speaking. Today, something is obviously not working, yet we still struggle with the idea of confronting and releasing our old conditioning and beliefs, healing, and making real change.

At this point in humanity’s history it seems that there are many who are desperately hanging on to an antiquated social belief system, many aspects of which they don’t even realize exist or affect them. Our social programming goes very, very deep; it is attached to our sense of Value, and Self. And it is in the shedding of this outdated programming that we find the ability to expand on the Heart and our relationship with Self, and know what is best for each of us individually, and authentically.

I see people everywhere who are beginning to awaken to the world around them and, as much as I try to avoid labels, many experiencing a kind of ‘Stockholm Syndrome’; the psychological state of identifying with one’s “oppressor”, in whatever form that oppressor takes. It could be in the form of a physically or emotionally abusive relationship, or addiction. It could be the controlling societal conditioning we have been subjected to or the lip service we’ve accepted from our “governments” who falsely tell us they have our best interests at Heart. It may be any any imposing influence that leave us feeling “less than” in some way.

It takes a great deal of resilience to be Awake in this world; we see an apparent lack of integrity almost everywhere we look, and it can be difficult to maintain a sense of clarity in among all the confusion, the dichotomy, as we try to talk and walk two different paths. We hear our “leaders” speak of integrity and priorities on a daily basis, yet we watch as people struggle in poverty and hunger, and wars are started in our names. And rather than admit this abuse, a failing of the status quo, many still protect and defend it, and mock those who threaten it.

Where is the integrity in their words? And where is the integrity in our actions? 

 

The Demon of Denial

What we lack, as a society and a species, is acceptance and accountability. Collectively speaking, we are still in denial. As Einstein said “we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them” and until we – including our leaders – acknowledge that this isn’t working, we’re stuck with the old way of thinking.

If we take a moment to reflect honestly on our Life we will see where our most deep seated fears have come to fruition, either in their physical reality or by living in it in the first place. By the same token, we will see where our deepest and most Loving desires have also come forth into our realities. When we allow ourselves, we find the answers within; we understand our bigger picture.

But on the whole, we are quite busy Living in the “demon” of denial. It is a difficult thing to go withIN and find Accountability for our own collective ills when we have been taught to accept judgement and social inequality as normal, to the point that many don’t even realize they’re even seeing it, or doing it. A dangerous dynamic is playing out around us, and all it takes is a willingness to open the mind and the Heart and consider a new perspective to see it. But many would rather stick to the program, and even defend and justify it, because it’s more comfortable and familiar than the idea that we have been lied to.

It may feel like threading the eye of a needle. But the truth is, we have ALL the Power. We Always have… and that itself can be a tough pill to swallow at first. We have accepted less for so long.

But resentments are dangerous things. They don’t lead anywhere positive, rather they take us on a long and treacherous journey into the dark side of the Soul. In order to Create something New we have to stop pointing fingers and placing blame and guilt where it doesn’t belong. When one lives in guilt, blame, and resentment it is not Living at all. There is no Creative energy in this place, no air, no place to go. There is no guilt or blame in ‘the bigger picture’. Energetically we are just playing out our collective programming, and the sooner we release that programming and fill the space with Love, the sooner we can begin to Thrive and Grow into our authentic Self, both individually and collectively.

Through the Eye of the Needle

In order to fit through the eye of the needle and release the old programming, it begins with realizing its existence in the first place.

We are deeply in denial, a society that doesn’t acknowledge its accountability – for systematically destroying one another and our planet in the name of progress, money, religion, and oil. Even after looking down the Rabbit Hole, I have trouble wrapping my head around the extent of it – kids being shot at school, war (especially “holy war”?), bullying, hunger, poverty, ecocide, banking scandals, mismanagement of funds, the withholding of our Constitutional Rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness… The list goes on. Yet most people go on and on about their daily business not once thinking to stop and question what’s happening around them.

Instead we look to the same systems that harms us in the first place, for an endless supply of “fix it” remedies, solutions, distractions and comforts. All we have to do is look around to see something is very wrong and yet we deny it, put our heads back down, pretend it isn’t happening, and get back to “work”. Maybe “someone else” will fix it.

Personally, I’m going to set an example of transparency and accountability in my life. I haven’t lived the life of an Angel. I’ve run the gamut of all the things that are “wrong” with our society and it’s really hard to pick just one. I spent 6 years re-appropriating myself to “reality” after I was medicated to the edge of my Soul with anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medication, and pain killers. It nearly killed me. A doctor gave me a prescription once when I was supposedly “depressed” and it went from there, as more and more pills were added to the mix so that I could “function”. The pharmaceutical industry was making bank while I was so medicated I could barely function, let alone Live as the Divine woman and mother my Spirit wants me to be.

Stop Look and Listen - Society in DenialWhen you’re IN it, you can’t see it – and that is the True definition of “insanity”. Yet, here we are doing the same things over and over again, calling it “reality” and expecting a different outcome.  I don’t know about you but this isn’t the “reality” I choose for mySELF or my precious, intelligent, beautiful children.

The psychiatrists and medical industry has labeled every emotion as some sort of disorder and then convinced people to take a pill and it will all “go away”. But it doesn’t work that way. It just doesn’t. Nothing is that easy… but it is. Just not how we’re taught. It’s about the Human Connection and the Human Spirit. It’s about Loving each other through it and BEing IN it with each other, free from the judgement we have been conditioned to heap upon one another. We’re like children doing what we’re “told”, and what we’re being told to do is disconnect ourselves from the bigger picture while corporations and governments dictate every aspect of our very existence. It didn’t even start in our generation – this energy has been been playing out for centuries. But it’s time we take responsibility for our own Welfare and the Welfare of those around us. Today.

Stop, Look, and Listen

We can’t continue to prolong the inevitable. We reinforce these failing ideals onto our children and each other; a tiny little box of limited and antiquated ways of thinking. We are helping our kids onto a ride that we know is broken. The economy isn’t working. Our energy technology isn’t working. Government isn’t working. Our healthcare system is broken, especially when it comes to mental and emotional health. Our education system isn’t working. It’s 2014 and we’re still debating issues of poverty, environment and equality?

Is this the kind of world we want our children to grow up in?

When our society accepts only what is reported through a single medium, it causes tunnel vision! When money is privately controlled, the financial system has failed. When religions have cynically been robbed of their Spirituality, it’s time to reconsider where we put our faith. We have an elitist system and every single one of us is responsible, whether we are actively participating in it, being a knowing “victim” to it, or standing by and watching it happening without action.

until we can be Accountable for our situation we cannot change our thinking. Accountability starts from withIN by releasing the things that no longer serve us emotionally – resentments, anger, guilt, shame, and judgement just to name a few. But to really boil it down, there are only 2 emotions from which all emotions stem; fear and Love. And if you take the time to look withIN, honestly and with Love, it’s quite simple to tell the difference.

Go Home, go INside and Listen to our inner knowing in an Honest way. Make amends with ourselves and our immediate families. Heal and Listen and Care for one another. In order to become Accountable we have to become Self-Aware and we can’t do that amid endless distractions. Block out the distractions and question the propaganda. Face your denial with compassion. We have to find Peace and it starts from withIN.

The Heavens and the Earth are speaking to us in every moment. God is withIN and without meaning it comes from the inside out. Jesus taught it. Buddha taught it. Mandela taught it. Regardless of labels, all of great leaders, philosophers, and Spiritual teachers teach the same thing. We are the Creators and we are Creating this “reality” and will continue to do so as long as we deny the Truth. Unconditional Love is the only answer and it starts from withIN. To Love God is to Love SELF and Accept the hardship of those around you so we can Heal our planet and each other.

It is ALL of our responsibility to pick up where our government, economy, and healthcare systems are failing us. We are the ones we have been waiting for, so let’s swallow the jagged little pill and get on with it. There are no labels. There is no money. There is no judgement. There is only Home and Heart. Peace and Love. Compassion and Empathy. The Spirit is here and it Lives withIN each and every ONE of us, and our planet. It is the only Home any of us know.

Have the courage of Heart to see and hear what may BE uncomfortable. Ultimately, the Truth is a Beautiful Gift to receive. It is only our authentic Emotional experiences and insights that will help us Unite and Heal our wounded Hearts.

I Love you all so very much and look forward to our making it through the Eye of the Needle together.

In Love and Unity,

Jennifer

The Embodiment of Me, Myself, and I

Artwork by Natalia Koreshkova

“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” – Lao Tzu

This may be a little challenging initially but we don’t need a psychologist to analyze our own “multiple personalities” of Me, Myself, and I.  They are all present in our reality, so let’s learn about who’s who in the equation.  The purpose of Embodiment is to exist in the emotional and spiritual space of Freedom, separate from the burdens of other’s expectations. Embracing our own Journey through Life transcends us into creating our own Voyage, in our own vehicle, with no hitchhiking needed. Driving ourselves we Learn to take the scenic route through Life while growing in emotional and spiritual intelligence.  Let’s face it, there’s enough going on with Me, Myself, and I than to ever worry about other’s perception of Self. Life is an Infinite River presenting the opportunity to learn about Self in order to grow into the Spiritual dimension, not the other way around.

The Trinity and the Journey of Life

facing-the-demons-natalia-koreshkovaMe is the Driver, the “ego” mind, and the emotionally tender one who Experiences said emotion by way of the Passenger’s Perspective – Positive or negative.  The Driver acts and reacts to the circumstances based on the conditions of “River Road” such as obstacles and circumstances on life’s Path. It’s the Driver’s responsibility to keep everyone in the vehicle safe.  In that, they can be overprotective with a tendency to tirelessly drive in circles (just because it’s familiar doesn’t mean it’s good for us).  The Driver is hesitant attempting new things and as such tends to play it Safe rarely pursuing alternative routes or new destinations.  In stark contradiction, the Driver lives in “fear” as they lack Confidence.  The Driver and Passenger tend to debate about the radio “channel” in regards to playing it Safe or really going for the Heart and Soul kind of music – it’s all about the radio in the car, you know?  They are constantly trying to please one another instead of paying attention to their specific roles.

Myself- is our own unique lens and perspective on the World and our Lives in general.  Myself is the Passenger who’s in charge of the radio and what frequency it’s on by way of Self’s perspective which can change at any moment.  The Passenger transmits the radio signal giving the Driver information on road conditions and the route by way of their Experiences.  The Passenger is the Creator of our reality by how they choose to Experience Life awakening the Emotions of the Driver.  The Passenger is most important as they fully Experience the ride and have control of the radio “channel” also known as The Law of Attraction.  He/she chooses the frequency of transmission and determines whether or not the radio is set to Receive.  On one hand, The Passenger is curious and thirsts for knowledge and experiences through our own perspective, am I enjoying the ride?  On the flip side, the Passenger sometimes likes what they see and doesn’t want to change vantage points.  For example, the Passenger tends to become consumed looking out the rear window (the past) or the front window (the future) and forgets to enjoy the view of Life as it passes by in the Moment of NOW.  In that, the Passenger gets distracted struggling to decide whether to re-visit a Path already taken or try a new way.

I – Higher Self.  I holds the Atlas to the Experiences we wish to have on this passage called Life.  I equals the “I AM” Presence whose purpose is to Navigate the unfamiliar road and mediate between the Driver and the Passenger.   The Navigator’s responsibility is ensuring the Driver and Passenger don’t get lost along the way while quibbling which tends to represent the proverbial angel on one shoulder and devil on the other.  The Navigator’s duty is to guide the Driver and Passenger through the ever changing River of Life.  Since the Navigator is only Present in Spirit he/she is in charge of delivering Conscious Awareness into our physical realty a.k.a. the vehicle. When the Passenger decides the destination they send out a radio transmission to the Navigator who then, Lovingly but firmly, encourages the Driver to alter their course.  The Navigator is hard to communicate with sometimes because we first have to acknowledge their Presence and give them Permission to Create the Atlas.  In other words, we have to invite the Navigator to do his/her job of gracefully presenting the Driver a new route and encouraging the Passenger to tune into the receiver on the radio.  The Navigator is the Unconditional Love of our I AM Presence who Loves us no matter what we choose to Experience on the trip but asks that we not harm ourselves or others in life’s journey.

The Infinite River

infinity-natalia-koreshkovaLife is a River flowing in the Infinite pattern of the Creator always presents an opportunity for the Driver to change course.  This eternal pattern allows the Passenger’s perspective to observe and tune into a destination.  Our Conscious Awareness of the Navigator permits us to feel Safe knowing someone has a map of the River of Life so we are never lost.

Recognizing the pattern of the Infinite River assures that we always know where we’re coming from and where we’re going.  The crossroads may not look exactly the same as the River is always moving but we always have a choice!   If we simply Learn to ask the Navigator, they will bring us to another location or take us to the restful shore of the River.  We understand that Spirit may not always give us what we WANT but we get what we NEED first to ultimately get what we want.  This means we can virtually “start over” in every Moment just by asking for a new itinerary, forging a new Path for the Driver and Passenger revealing the compass of Perspective on Life and its Infinite possibilities.

To fully Embody the trinity of Me, Myself, and I with the Emotional and Spiritual aspects of the I AM Presence, let’s discuss what this means.  Spirit is not something tangible, rather this Presence is like the mist endlessly uniting Love and Connectedness into our “reality.”   We also have a physical vehicle (Life and its Expression) that needs to be tended to in order to keep the body functioning rhythmically down River Road. Let’s now dissect the word Embodiment as it pertains to the Trinity.

The Embodiment

private-universe-natalia-koreshkovaEm-Bodi-Ment:

Em – the Emotional aspects of our vehicle or Life expression: how we FEEL about events which also relates to our Spirituality.  To experience all is to know what Feels harmonic and melodious or dark and disturbing.  This requires us to be Emotionally present in the vehicle (Life) aware of our FEELINGS and inspiring Spirit to Navigate.  Are we paying close attention to our Emotions and Listening to what they’re trying to tell us about ourselves?

The bodi asks us to be physically aware of our physiology as it relates to the mind and spirit.   Are we exercising?  Are we eating properly?  Are we cherishing our Spirit and what it wants to accomplish emotionally via the physical body?  In other words, exercising our physical body can rid ourselves of anxiety, anger, depression, and many other negative vibrations we are looking to release.

Ment is the Mental/psychological lens we use, this is equivalent to our Perceptions and how we choose to define our Experiences or whether they define us.  Are we mentally allowing ourselves the opportunity to Experience the infinite possibilities the River has to offer?  Or are we holding onto the shoreline afraid to let go and fully engage the River?  Are we “sober”, awake, and aware of what’s going on around us and in our Lives or are we in denial of our “reality”?

The Embodiment of the Life Experience and the Infinite River is the Conscious Awareness we bring to our Lives in general.  In short, we have a symbiotic relationship between our Emotions and our Spiritual Awareness or Presence which is the number 2.  We have the Trinity of Me, Myself, and I or the Driver, Passenger, and Navigator of our Life Journey which is the number 3.  And, have our vehicle which is the Emotional/Spiritual, Physical, and Mental/Psychological components of our Life and its Expression which is also 3.  Add it all up and we get the number 8, flip it on its side and we are limitlessly and undoubtedly prepared for the Journey of Life on the Infinite River.

Healing the Trauma Drama

Healing the Trauma Drama

22nd June 2014

By Jennifer Deisher

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience, and when this happens we often take an emotional “snapshot” of this moment, living and re-living this detrimental emotional experience. As exhausting as this can be, it is here that we will find a great Key of transcendence – it allows us to look a little further withIN that trauma, and release some of the deeper social, psychological, and spiritual “programming” from separation and judgement. This process is especially important when we feel separated from Self; when we judge our own underlying emotions that stem from our trauma.

We never need to look any further than right Here – where YOU are. When an underlying trauma leaves us feeling discontent with others or society, it is withIN that we find all the answers we need. As a matter of fact, our answers are coded right into our DNA.

We’ve all experienced something “negative” in our Lives, whether it be in a physical, psychological (mental), emotional, or spiritual aspect. One of the most common experiences is the perception of abandonment, because at a higher level, we are ALL experiencing a newer awareness – including that of separation. As spiritual beings having a human experience, we are Oneness, separated by form, and our increasing perception of this Truth is allowing us to uncover and heal the underlying trauma of separation.

 

The bottom line is this. If we haven’t made it ALL the way through our pain and found a Loving space for ourSelf on the other side, then we will continue to re-Create our energetic struggle. Over and over and round and round we go, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results (the definition of “insanity”). When we learn to Overcome our trauma – by goingthrough what we are used to going around – we find Love for Self and a more complete Healing. We find acceptance, knowing that we can never be any less than whole, even as we experience the ‘separation’ of this Reality and the feelings of abandonment that can come with it. We make peace with our perfect imperfection.

The Only Way Out is Through

We learn, for the most part, that “God” resides somewhere outside of ourselves, dictating our Lives in some way, shape or form. But as we evolve, our preconceived ideas of what that means are literally being turned upside-down. We are seeing that we are the “God” of our own individual Universe, the Divine creators of our own Reality, shaped by our physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual bodies. We are realizing that “God” is our Higher Self – our connectedness – and putting our Trust and Faith into this realization. From here, we can see that the drama of our trauma doesn’t have to be so dramatic after all, as it’s leading us to the ultimate prize of release, letting go – Acceptance.

The most important thing to remember about dealing with trauma is that, at a fundamental level, we are searching for a way to have our Emotional needs met, in order to move on. We are ultimately trying to find a Safe emotional space where we can be comfortable with our experience and our emotions, and feel comfortable expressing them.

While we are in this process we must keep in mind that our emotional needs aren’t “unhealthy” – they are a Truth of this Reality – but we may be avoiding them, or trying to meet them in an “unhealthy” (and unsatisfying) way by doing harm to Self or others. This is a very common theme; we project these emotional needs onto others and expect them to fulfil us… which is, of course, quite impossible. It just sets us (and them) up for “failure”, which causes us (and them) to be traumatized all over again. The people in our lives can only provide a Loving support system while we work through our emotions.

Ultimately, Self is the only one who is experiencing Self’s emotions, so in order to Heal we must meet our OWN emotional needs. As we put our Trust and Faith in our Higher Self, we can begin to work with the damage and confusion on a more Spiritual level, which brings significantly more accessible results. When we begin to look withIN, we can begin to be Honest with ourselves about our emotional needs and how these needs effect our Lives in the bigger picture.

The Mirror of Perception

Every person and situation in our lives is a mirror. They reflect to us our perception of Reality, and the bigger picture of what we are trying to Learn about Self. This means what we love or hate or fear “out there”, or in another, is what we really love or hate or fear withIN. We wouldn’t know hate and/or fear if we didn’t have it in our possession, withIN.

Healing the Trauma Drama - The Mirror of PerceptionIn order to transcend the negativity we perceive “out there” we have to Love it into submission, right “in here”. Our seemingly negative emotions reflect an absence of the energy of Love, so in order to rid ourselves of them, we must LOVE them, shining a light on the Shadows within. From there, we begin to forget the negativity surrounding our trauma and can approach it from either a Loving standpoint or, even better, we can get to a place where we no longer put energy into it at ALL, as we (finally) move forward.

It takes great commitment and courage to face what one truly hates and/or fears withIN. These feelings are extremely uncomfortable. The illusion tells us that we are incomplete, fragmented, or broken but the Truth is that we can never be these things in Spirit. It’s only our judgment that tells us our emotions are “wrong”. But it’s from this place of great vulnerability that we find our greatest Strength. Heaven is a mindset and a way of BEing, rather than a place or an emotion that can be met by another. When we stop repeating our cycles of emotional trauma and projecting our emotions outwardly, we stop doing harm to ourselves and others, and create peace and safety withIN ourselves.

When we fill our Shadows with light, they all but disappear. 

Embracing a process of Healing opens up an emotional vastness that covers all ends of the spiritual and emotional spectrum. This is where we really begin to heal from the pain and trauma caused by this Reality. By understanding and Loving our entire spiritual and emotional body, we are able to Connect with Self and others in a most profound and expansive way. The Gift, and what makes it worth the process, is our own personal brand of Heaven that comes from withIN and then transforms our reality (without).

The Trauma Drama

black-heart

We have entered a delicate emotional and spiritual space in our “evolution” and I’ve heard from many recently in regards to feeling like the deeper emotional issues are coming up AGAIN to be processed.  From here, many are re-Creating their own emotional “traumas” in an inadvertent way both individually and in the bigger societal picture.  The definition of trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience and when this happens we usually find an emotional “snapshot” which may leave our perceptions of this moment at great odds with the “reality” that we may still be living and re-living this detrimental emotional experience.  Exhaustively enough, it is “here” that we will find a great Key of transcendence if we allow ourselves to look a little further withIN to release some of the deeper social, psychological, and spiritual “programming” from separation and judgement.  This is especially important when we feel separated from Self because we are in judgment of our own underlying emotions that stem from the trauma or the not so conspicuous PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress “disorder”) that comes later which is actually a very NATURAL emotional response. When we find ourselves feeling discontent with others or societal influence due to underlying trauma or PTSD it is withIN that we find all the answers we need and, as a matter of fact, our answers are coded right into our DNA so we never need to look any further than right Here where YOU are.

We’ve all experienced something “negative” in our Lives whether it be in a physical, psychological (mental), emotional, or spiritual aspect.  One of the most common experiences is the perception of abandonment because we are ALL experiencing a newer awareness including that of separation as spiritual beings having a human experience. We learn, for the most part, the “God” resides somewhere outside of ourselves dictating our Lives in some way, shape, or form but the Truth is that we are the “God” of our own individual Universe which is shaped by our physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual bodies.  Our preconceived ideals of what that means have been literally turned upside-down by our societal beliefs and familial expectations. The bottom line is this – if we haven’t made it ALL the way through our PAIN and found a Loving space for Self on the other side then we will most likely continue to re-Create our struggle in order to completely Overcome it.  This results in finding Love for Self and a more complete Healing by going through what we may be used to going around.  Over and over and round and round we go until we find Acceptance and Resolution leading to the KNOWING that we can never be any less than Whole or Complete even as we are experiencing “separation” and the feeling of abandonment that comes with it.

For this exercise we must think of “God” as our Higher Self who only has our best interests at Heart and wants to see YOU succeed in all areas of Life on Earth.  In other words, we have to KNOW that Self wants what’s best for Self and be able to put our Trust and Faith into this realization.  From here, we can see that the drama of our trauma doesn’t have to be so dramatic after all as it’s leading us to the ultimate prize of release, letting go, or Acceptance (however you chose to look at it).  The most important thing to remember about the stress that comes with trauma and PTSD is that we are searching for a way to have our Emotional needs met in order to move on.  We are ultimately trying to find a Safe emotional space where we are comfortable with expressing the emotions the event brought on in the first place.  It’s a very typical thing to project these emotional needs onto others and expect them to fulfill us which is, unfortunately, quite impossible.  The problem with this is that the person we are expecting to meet these emotional needs is unable because they can’t possibly know what Self needs more than Self which sets us (and them) up for “failure” in almost every situation.  Ultimately, Self is the only one who is experiencing Self’s emotions and in order to Heal we must meet our OWN emotional needs but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a Loving support system around us when we work through it.

As we put our Trust and Faith in our Higher Self we can begin to work with the damage and confusion on a more Spiritual level which brings significantly more accessible results.  We can begin to be Honest with ourselves about what our emotional needs really are and how these “needs” are effecting our Lives in the bigger picture.  We must be willing to establish how and with whom we are going about having these emotional needs met.  While we are in this process we MUST keep in mind that our emotional needs aren’t necessarily “unhealthy” rather we may be going about meeting them in an “unhealthy” way by doing harm to Self or others.  This is a very common theme, especially of late, and what we call emotional projection meaning that we are projecting our emotions onto others in order to have them meet an emotional need they cannot possibly meet setting us/them up to disappoint which causes us to be “traumatized” all over again.  This is also where we feel as if we take 2 steps forward and one step back or consistently end up back at “square one” which, as we’ve learned, is the TRUE definition of “insanity” – doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

Every person and situation in our Lives is a mirror to the bigger picture of what we are trying to Learn about Self.  As we project our emotions and judgement onto others what we are really doing is asking Self to find Acceptance for the things we perceive as pissing us off or being “wrong” with the world or our relationships.  That’s certainly not to say there’s not some really negative energies out there but in order to transcend from the negativity we perceive “out there” we have to Love it into submission right “Here”.  This means what we “hate” or fear out there or in another is what we really hate or fear from withIN.  There’s nowhere to hide from this perception because we wouldn’t know hate and/or fear if we didn’t have it in our possession withIN.  These seemingly “negative” emotions are ALLERGIC to the energy of Love and in order to rid ourselves of them we must LOVE them from withIN.  From there, we begin to forget the negativity surrounding our trauma and can approach it from either a Loving standpoint or, even better, get to a place where we no longer put energy into it at ALL which is when it all but disappears as we (finally) move forward.

These epiphanies are uncomfortable and sometimes make us feel shame, guilt, or even “stupid” although it takes great commitment and courage to face what one truly hates and/or fears withIN.  It’s from this place of great vulnerability that we find our greatest Strength.  After all, this is when we Truly reach the rainbow bridge of emotionally imaginative Creation because we are in a Safe space where we aren’t doing “harm” onto others by way of our emotional projections.  Heaven on Earth is a mindset and a way of BEing rather than a place or an emotion that can be met by another from a projection because this IS part of the “illusion”.  The illusion tells us that we are incomplete, fragmented, or broken but the Truth is that we can never be these things in Spirit.  It’s only our judgment that tells us our emotions are “wrong” and our projection that tells us we need someone else to validate that the emotions are normal and healthy.  The safety comes when we no longer need this validation from others and find Love from withIN, even the parts of Self we think are “ugly”.  As most everything we Learned is upside-down, those who are reading this and embracing this process of Healing are opening up to a much deeper emotional vastness that covers all ends of the emotional and spiritual spectrum.  This means that by studying and making correction with our spiritual and emotional body we are able to Connect with Self and others in the most profound and expansive way.  From this end of the spectrum of pain, trauma, and PTSD to the other end of the spectrum of Love, Acceptance, and a Wholeness that comes from withIN.  This Loving Acceptance of Self is where we find our own personal brand of Heaven on Earth that comes from withIN and then begins to transform our reality (without).

Into the Deep

Artwork by Jessica Perlstein: http://dreamstreamart.com/

We have a misconception in our society and within our belief systems that challenges everything we think we know about learning Self-Love.  We are taught on a most basic level that Honest emotion is weak, vulnerable, and unhealthy and it is here that we see ourselves running away from Self over and over again.  It is most important in this journey to come into Balance with our shadow side and learn to Love this piece of ourselves that we may find unlikable or even unlovable.  It’s actually quite sane and normal to fear this side of ourselves on some level due to the decisions that we sometimes make from this shadowy “place”.  The fact of the matter is that we should be “fearful” of our shadow side and this is why we have to be willing to be the distant observer of our fear by learning to have a healthy respect for it and the reactions it can bring into our Lives by way of the decisions we make that may not be the most rational or objective.

 Honest, intimate, and Loving connections can bring up emotional issues that are looking for Healing or release.  It is this Light of Love that can shine on our darkest places leaving us to face what we perceive as ugliness about ourselves.  The truth is that emotional expression is a most beautiful form of Art that tells us everything we need to know about our emotional and spiritual complexities.  We ALL have a “snake” which is what we perceive to be a fear, insecurity, or weakness.  Most people fear and “hate” the snake just for being itself and this says so much about our “egoic”, fear-based, or “reptilian” brain depending on how you choose to look at it.  When one comes face to face with these fear-based emotional complexities it takes great discipline to be the distant observer of our personal brand of “fight or flight “ reaction that happens automatically in these situations.  Sometimes if the shock value is high enough we don’t have the option to sit back and observe so we are then left  to experience some kind of fall-out in what is actually a very normal REaction.

There is nothing wrong with desire as it tells us where we have longing in our Lives.  When we feel angry it typically comes on the heels of some form of pain and lets us know where we feel threatened or “tread upon” in some way.  When we feel lack it is because we are working through a process of feeling there is something we once had but has now gone missing.  When we feel resentment it’s because we feel violated in some way.  When we feel guilt or shame it can point to a place where Self can be more Accountable to Self.  When we feel jealous or insecure it tells us we feel fear of “losing” something or someone that is important to us on some level.  We all feel alone and abandoned at times but it’s in our solitude that we find out what we’re made of as it’s only our perception that sees us “alone” in the crowd. The list goes on and on but the gist is that our emotions tell us everything that our Spirit needs us to know about where we need emotional clearing or detoxification.  Where we get into trouble is in thinking that our emotions and/or the expression of these emotions is ugly or wrong somehow.  This is when we begin to settle for less than what our True Self seeks to have in our Life Experience because it forces us to push away the emotional expression of our “fear” or the very thing we are trying to shed in the first place.

If we can really find a way to be the distant observer of our “snake” we can begin to suck the “venom” or poison out of its actions and reactions.  Sometimes we need help or intervention with this because the snake is very comfortable with the patterns of behavior that it created to keep it Safe.  In this, the word “ego” implies something selfish which is why it’s important to understand that many of our venomous ways were created in childhood before we are even old enough to communicate in many cases.  When we suck the venom out of our fear we don’t have to be afraid of its reactions or its tendency to sabotage anything Healthy that comes into our Lives.  We Learn to Love our snake just for being itself and from here we can admit to ourselves when we’ve made subconscious, unhealthy decisions that negatively impact our Lives and/or cause “regret”.  When we are unable to recognize where we REact from our snake we ultimately aren’t being True to Self and begin to settle with Self and in our relationships.

The Key is that there is nothing wrong with what we perceive to be our “negative” emotions rather it’s our job in the process to overcome this perception and learn to Love every aspect of Self.  When we Love our snake it becomes docile and only bites when its very clear boundaries are being violated.  From here, we can use the venom from our snake as medicine in order to find Positive aspects and strength where we perceived negativity and weakness.  We learn to Live side by side with our fear so that we can grow and branch out like the Tree of Life instead of continuing to run round and round on the “karmic wheel” of venomous decisions designed to keep us from our best and truest Self leading to the greatest fulfillment of our deeper Purpose.  We learn from here to really evaluate the choices and decisions we have available to us and react from this Healthier emotional space rather than relying on impulsive decisions made from fear instead of Self-Love.  We Always need to remember that we are Beautiful Souls who are ALL Worthy of Unconditional Love on the most fundamental of levels and that we ALL came “here” to experience just that!

We are adding a new service to our repertoire called “The Demon Stop” for those who are struggling with letting go of very deep-seated fears that negatively impact Lives based on making impulsive decisions from the “egoic” mind.  It’s in clearing out these lower vibrational energies that we see our Lives begin to Thrive and our Spirit begin to Grow.  When we can learn to co-exist with our fear without making impulsive, regretful decisions we find a release that changes the very foundation of our Lives in a Positive and Loving way.  If you are interested in exploring this service with us we are offering an introductory special of only $30.  This will include an extensive conversation with us in addition to a Healing plan in writing as well as intensive and supportive follow-up.  If you are interested or have questions, please e-mail us at blueprintsforbutterflies@gmail.com to schedule an appointment and/or click the “buy now” button below.                                                                                     btn_buynowCC_LG

Services

The road to Self-Awareness and Spirit is an Emotional journey.  Healing is not complete unless there is Emotional clearing.  As Divine Love enters our BEing it brings to Light all of our “egoic” programming and behavior that doesn’t resonate with Unconditional Divine Love.  Our “egoic” or fear-based patterns of behavior tend to resist that which it doesn’t understand and most often tries to prohibit the Soul’s Growth in clearing unnecessary Emotional “baggage”.  We can help!  See below for Services.

Spiritual Awakening Sessions

There is a great paradigm shift happening in our World and on our Beautiful Planet.  Many are Awakening to find that there is something much bigger than they ever realized and are finding a new way to DO and BE.  On the flip side, Awakenings can be traumatic and confusing if it causes you to question everything you’ve ever known.  We offer Guidance and Support during this transition and can help one make sense of the Awakening Experience.  Each Awakening session includes an Intuitive Connection via either phone or Skype, typically 30-45 minutes.  After the session we will spend in-depth time gaining an empathetic and Spiritual Connection with your energy signature in order to guide you into your Higher Self and/or Spiritual Guides.   Every Awakening is different and individualized but the key is that it is Always Life-changing and can be a tumultuous time without a Loving support system.

The Hungry Ghost

 

Ghost-Woman1

I cannot be more adamant that we are the Creators of our Lives but more by way of our emotions than we realize.  The Law of Attraction is a Beautiful thing  but not if we don’t understand where we are vulnerable in terms of deep-seated fears that can change our vibe in a most traumatic way.  We have to be the willing participants in what we are Creating from either fear or Love.  We can think it all we want but what it comes down to is what we are truly Feeling from withIN and there’s never been a more important time, energetically speaking, to dig deep and find our lower vibrational needs and expectations so they don’t destroy the Lives we are trying to build.

The hungry ghost is a “demon” that is Created withIN from the emotion and mindset known as lack and expectation.  The hungry ghost will seek to destroy every good thing that comes its way by focusing on the ONE thing it perceives it doesn’t or can’t have.  When we Allow our perceptions of “lack” to consume our BEing it can be the most dangerous of cocktails and addictions stealing Joy and sucking Light until it eats itself alive.

It takes great Courage of the Heart to face our inner demons and learn to overcome the inner child who Creates and re-Creates from fear, lack, and expectation.  The fastest and most efficient way to effectuate Positive change into our reality is by saturating our reality with Gratitude.  The Law of Polarity states “Everything is dual, everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree” but the Law is also mutable meaning that in Spirit All is ONE so we can find Positive reaction instead of negative if we choose to look for it. [1]  Fear is allergic to Love, lack is allergic to Gratitude, and expectation is allergic to letting go.  There is a karmic wheel at play in these situations and it’s our “job” in the journey of Self-Awareness to branch our way out of this wheel that goes round and round.  We are not meant to operate on the “wheel of karma” rather we are meant to overcome by branching out like the Tree of Life.  When we can see our Lessons and begin to Grow from them we embrace our True state of existence releasing ourselves from the wheel in order to branch out like the Tree.

The single, most important factor in Self-Awareness and the road to Spirit is the emotion of Self-Love.  My spontaneous Awakening reads much like a near death experience but as my Awareness and understanding of it grows I have more to share with all of you.  In those days I was given the Gift of a huge injection of Love=Light and in the coming months found myself unable to hold onto any kind of fearful vibration which caused me to “crack open” in the most Divine sense of the word.  In those days a most dear Friend, David Karchere, told me that “people don’t do well without love in their lives” and it was this statement that got me through some pretty intense moments of finding the Self-Love I speak of. [2]  We have such misguided interpretations of what Love really means in the bigger picture due to the fact that our society sexualizes pretty much everything in the form of entertainment and advertising.  It is our false perceptions of Love that see us not understanding what it means therefore leaving us searching for something that doesn’t really exist “out there”.  We can have intimate and Loving relationships without having to sexualize ourselves and each other and it’s these relationships that are most important when we are seeking a Loving partnership.  If we cannot respect boundaries in these kinds of “platonic” relationships then we certainly can’t begin to understand boundaries in a partnership.  When we “lack” Self-Love we Create an addiction of the most destructive nature making us our own worst enemy in seeking something that we already have, and always have, in our possession.  In other words, we cannot be completed nor can we expect to complete someone else.  When two people have an expectation of being completed by another from a place of “love” it requires stepping onto the karmic wheel of lack always searching for something “out there” and expecting the other person to provide this love that we are seeking in a most intimate way.  Love doesn’t work that way.  If I complete me and you complete you then we Grow and Expand in the most natural of ways, as Individuals and from the relationships we decide to have from this place of being Complete.  Love is Limitless by it’s very Nature so we cannot place something this important in the hands of another who couldn’t possibly understand the area that needs attention better than Self as all of our emotions and experiences are different.  We can never expect another to fill a lacking place with the vibration of “love” if we aren’t willing to fill it withIN ourselves.  In constantly looking for something we already have withIN we create an addiction, a need, that cannot possibly be quenched seeing us “fail” in “love” every time.

Our relationships with one another are rooted and sacred Gifts of Love.  As someone who is Complete in a Complete relationship I/we understand how vast True Love can really be and it exceeds any “expectation” we’ve ever known in its Divinity.  It gives us security in our Lives no matter what we say or do because to be True to ourSelves we are also True to our relationship.  It’s okay to Communicate from a place of  Honesty freeing us from the “fear” of seeing some form of rejection.  It gets bigger with controversy where the endless network branches into sacred Gifts of Love deepening the commitment and the experience of Loving one other.  We cannot see lack because we are not taking something from each other that we know we have withIN which means we can Give to each other Freely.  The Gift of Self-Love has given us everything we need to be rooted and sacred withIN ourselves in allowing us to let go of expectations therefore freeing us to explore the vastness of each other from our own Self-Awareness.  The Gift of Gratitude allows us to have appreciation for the people who are rooted with us and have built a Life with us on the foundation of Unconditional Love.  The Gift of Divine Love has allowed us to Overcome our deepest fears leaving us fearless in our space of knowing that we have Created this Beautiful Life and can be Accountable to ourSelves and others for Creating it.  These are the places I hold dear and are worth protecting by way of the emotions I hold with what I choose to feed the ghost withIN. 

The hungry ghost requires a specific diet of Gratitude, Self-Love, and letting go of expectation to quench its desire to eat its own tail.  Be careful what you feed it!

Stealth

stealth

By Mr. Moon Hippie Mystic ~ Inspired by Hope

Stealth is the lie.  I see myself, eyes clear but the mind fractured.  Lured by labels, its touch burns.  Cataclysms of materialism, perverted souls play with the Trusting Hearts of Humanity.  Their weapon – fear.  It’s seed planted upon the young, flowering into submission.  If it Feels take this one and swallow, you will soon become oblivious to ones Self.  Content to suffer as this is a life created by faulted politics and the nightmare of expectations.  Hear my Voice, I will yell for Eternity.  You are not alone nor broken.  There is Light in Love, my Heart holds your weary body.  Awaken into me and I will show you emotions Graceful in Balance.  My hand Always open, patiently ready to embrace yours.  Feel true touch as I AM everything they are not.  Hear my Wisdom and guide your thoughts into yourSELF gently and Feel.  Our power Infinitely consumes the Universe, this place is yours to destroy or Create.  Shed your darkness for it is not you, only a manufactured impression placed upon the Trusting.  Earth is our Planet, not theirs.  Our true Home awaits our return ~ Gratitude, Balance, and Love.  Our true Purpose to connect to each other, Free from the prison of drugs, war, politics, and fear.  My Heart beats with yours.  We are Beautiful and faulted.

The Eye of the Needle…

 eye

Beliefs can become patterns if you hold them long enough.  People don’t like to have their belief systems challenged as sometimes this is the very foundation used to “survive”, emotionally speaking.  At this point in the process it seems that there are many who are desperately hanging on to an antiquated belief system and this programming goes very, very deep.  It’s in the shedding of this outdated programming that we find the ability to fit through the eye of the needle in order to expand on the Heart so we will know what is best for each of us individually.

I see many people who are beginning to Awaken and, as much as I try to avoid “labels”, it leaves a sense of “Stockholm Syndrome” in that many have identified with their “oppressor” in whatever form that oppressor takes.  It could be the societal conditioning we have been subjected to in the form of money and “earning a Living” or the lip service we receive from our “governments” who tell us they have our best interests at Heart when we can clearly see and feel that it isn’t Truth.  It could come in the form of a physically or emotionally abusive relationship, addiction, and/or any combination of “programming” that leaves us feeling “less than” in some way.

It takes a great deal of resilience to be Awake in this world where there is a “lack” of integrity almost everywhere we look.  We Live in a world where it’s difficult to maintain a sense of clarity in the confusion that is prevalent as we try to talk and walk two different paths according to the dichotomy of the societal “norm”.  We hear our “leaders” speak of integrity on a daily basis yet we cannot help but watch as people struggle in poverty, hunger, and illness which includes every aspect of mental, physical, and spiritual Health.  Where is the integrity in the words?  Where is the integrity in our actions?  Yet, still we struggle with releasing programming that is obviously not working.

What we lack, as a society and a species, is Accountability.  If one takes a moment to reflect on their Life they will see where their most deep seated fears have come to fruition, either in their physical reality or by living in it in the first place.  By the same token, we will see where our deepest and most Loving desires have also come forth into our realities.  We are quite busy Living in the “demon” of denial because it is a difficult thing to go withIN and find Accountability when we have been taught judgement and inequality to the point that many don’t even realize they’re doing it.  We are always harder on ourselves than others could ever be and yet we refuse to give ourselves a break and ask for help when we need it.  All it takes is a willingness to open the mind and the Heart in order to gain a new perspective but yet we would rather stick to the program because it’s familiar.  We have ALL the Power, we Always have and that’s a tough pill to swallow in many cases.

Resentments are dangerous things.  They don’t lead anywhere rather take us on a long and treacherous journey into the dark side of the Soul.  In order to Create something New we have to stop pointing fingers and placing blame and guilt where it doesn’t belong.  There is not guilt or blame in the bigger picture and the sooner we release that programming the sooner we can begin to Thrive and Grow, both individually and collectively.  When one lives in guilt, blame, and resentment it is not Living at all.  There is no Creative energy in this place, no air, no place to go.  In order to fit through the eye of the needle it is necessary to release the old programming that begins with the denial of its existence in the first place.  We are tasked with finding Accountability in a society that doesn’t want to Accountable for destroying one another in the name of something that no one truly understands.  Maybe someone does understand but I certainly can’t wrap my head around kids being shot at school, war (especially “holy war?”), bullying, hunger, poverty, ecocide, banking scandals, mismanagement of funds, the withholding of our Constitutional Rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  Yet, most people go on and on about their daily business not once thinking to stop and question what’s happening around them.  We look to an endless supply of “fix it” remedies in the form of external ideals and sources when all we have to do is look around to see something is very wrong and yet we deny, put our heads back down, get back to “work”. 

I’m going to set an example in Accountability.  I’ve run the gamut of all the things that are “wrong” with our society and it’s really hard to pick just one.  I spent 6 years re-appropriating myself to “reality” after I had been medicated to the edge of my Soul with anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medication, and pain killers.  It nearly killed me and I’m not exaggerating when I say that…at all.  A doctor gave me a prescription once when I was supposedly “depressed” and it went from there as more and more pills were added to the mix so that I could “function”.  The pharmaceutical industry is making bank while I’m so medicated I can barely work let alone function as the woman and mother my Spirit wants me to be.  When you’re IN it you can’t see it and that is the True definition of “insanity” yet here we are doing the same things over and over again calling it “reality”.  I don’t know about you but this isn’t the “reality” I choose for mySELF and/or my precious, intelligent, beautiful children.  Who am I to tell them this is their “reality”?  The psychiatrists and medical industry has labeled every emotion as some sort of disorder and then convinced people, mostly women and mothers, to take a pill and it will all “go away”.  It doesn’t work that way, people.  It just doesn’t.  Nothing is that easy but yet it is.  It’s about the Human Connection and the Human Spirit.  It’s about Loving each other through it and BEing IN it with each other free from the judgement we have been taught to heap upon one another.  We’re like children doing what we’re “told” and what we’re being told to do is disconnect ourselves from the bigger picture while corporations and governments dictate every aspect of our very existence.  It’s about taking responsibility for our own Welfare and the Welfare of those around us.

Stop, Look, and Listen.  I said it over and over to my kids when they were so little I feared for almost every little thing.  Stop, Look, and Listen.  Stop.  Look.  Listen.  We can’t continue to force feed our preconceived ideals onto our children and each other.  The economy isn’t working.  The technology we use for energy isn’t working.  The government isn’t working (literally Congress!).  Our healthcare system is broken, especially when it comes to mental and emotional health.  Our education system isn’t working and we just reached the 30th school shooting in the U.S. on Tuesday while I watched the Colorado lawmakers consider barbed wire and metal detectors for our schools saying “the public isn’t ready to go there yet”.  You’re damn right I’m not ready to go there yet!  Stop, Look, and Listen.  When everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is dictated by ONE thing that is tunnel vision!  When everything is dictated on money then maybe “money” doesn’t work.  When everything in “religion” is dictated by one book that has been written and re-written by dictators for political purposes it’s time to buy a new book.  It’s 2014 and we’re still debating women’s rights and equality?  We have an elitist system and every single one of us is responsible whether you are participating in it, “victim” to it, or standing by and watching it happen saying nothing.  We all need to go Home, go INside and make amends with ourselves and our immediate families.  To Heal and Listen and Care for one another.  I don’t want to listen to the arguing anymore, especially the politicians and their “analysts” listening to themselves speak in order to validate their existence.  Is this resentment?  No, this is objectivity and there is a difference.  There is a difference between sympathy and Empathy – sympathy enables and says “well, at least you have this or that” while Empathy is a mirror into another and SELF.  In order to become Accountable we have to become Self-Aware and we can’t do that with all of these distractions so we are willing to look back down and go back to “work” running on the treadmill of denial and distraction to the point of oblivion.  We are annihilating ourselves by going along with all of the propaganda.  A new hairstyle, new car, new pill, or any external thing is not going to fix the situation.  We have to find Peace and it starts from withIN.

If everyone would stop talking and really Listen, in an Honest way, to themselves first and then others it would make a difference in how we Look at things.  It can change our perspective.  The Heavens and the Earth are speaking to us in every moment with the severe weather, chemical and radiation leaks, the lack of integrity in government, the hemorrhaging of money by the global “elite” for war and poverty, the streak of violence and public shootings.  It’s not working and it’s never worked but yet we don’t Listen and See from our very own history.  God is withIN and without meaning it comes from the inside out.  Jesus taught it.  Buddha taught it.  Mandela taught it.  All of great leaders, philosophers, and Spiritual teachers teach the same thing.  We are the Creators and we are Creating this “reality” and will continue to do so as long as we deny the Truth.  Unconditional Love is the only answer and it starts from withIN.  To Love God is to Love SELF and Accept the hardship of those around you so we can Heal our planet and each other.  It is ALL of our responsibility to pick up where our government, economy, and healthcare systems are failing us.  We are committing ecocide in destroying our planet and each other’s emotional well being.  We are the ones we have been waiting for so let’s swallow the jagged little pill and get on with it.  There are no labels.  There is no money.  There is no judgement.  There is only Home and Heart.  Peace and Love.  Compassion and Empathy.  Courage of the Heart to see and hear what may BE uncomfortable.  We are the masses standing by watching our children go round and round on a ride that we know is  broken.  Our children matter and we can’t keep putting them and each other into a tiny little box of limited and antiquated ways of thinking and programming.  It’s hard to let go of thinking that someone is going to “fix” it for us but it’s the Truth.  When I was deep in the manufactured hell of my pharmaceutical cocktail I found a society that didn’t care if I lived or died based on whether I fell above or below the “poverty line” and this mentality even extended to some members of my very own family – a jagged little pill to swallow indeed.  Is this the kind of world we want our children to grow up in?  This is apocalyptic thinking and lacks intelligence, especially emotional and spiritual intelligence.  We all have this Emotional Intelligence in our possession and it is such a Beautiful Gift to receive.  If we can find this we can make it through the eye of the needle and Create anything that we desire but we have to be free of the programming that has been used to keep us in fear first.  Einstein said “we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them” and until we can be Accountable for our situation we cannot change our thinking.  Accountability starts from withIN by releasing the things that no longer serve us emotionally by way of resentments, anger, guilt, shame, and judgement just to name a few but really to simplify it there are only 2 emotions and all emotions stem from either fear or Love and it’s quite simple to tell the difference.  Do unto others.  Treat one another fairly and equally.  We have to Allow one another our own Emotional experiences and insights that will help us Unite and  Heal our wounded Hearts.  The Spirit is Here and it Lives withIN each and every ONE of us and our planet.  It is the only Home any of us know.  We are the only family any of us know.  We are a race of ONE.  The Human Race guided by the Human Heart and the Human Spirit.  It cannot be denied any longer.  There is only Love and Love is All that IS.  I Love you all so very much and look forward to our Experiences together when we make it through the Eye of the Needle…together in Love and Unity for ALL that is.

The Magician’s Secret

wand

The curtain opens and the Magician steps onto the stage in front of a large audience as they wait with bated breath to see the show.  We watch in Awe and Wonder as magic bursts forth in front of our very eyes.  How do they do these things?  We are always searching for the Magician’s Secret both on the stage and in our very own Lives.  The brilliant thing about searching for Magic in our own Lives is that it is so very, very simple.

There is a key to unlocking Magic in our Lives in order to grow and learn in Spirit.  The key is, and always has been, an “attitude of gratitude” but what does it really mean?  We are human and spiritual BEings all at once and it is our great challenge in Life to balance our “ego” mind with our Spirit, or Heart center.  We cannot be in “fear” and Love all at once as they cannot co-exist in the “higher realms” we seek to find which means we cannot be in “lack” and abundance at the same time either.

When we are struggling in any area in our Lives we find ourselves in a place known as “survival” mode.  Survival mode comes on in any given number of situations including our relationships, finances, and health.  We have to understand that the path to Spirit is an emotional journey and when we feel survival mode coming on it’s typically a great opportunity to plow the field but it can also be taxing and painful.  Stress and fear are the biggest obstacles in Life when if comes to BEing Healthy, both physically and emotionally.  Our emotions are the key to Spirit and when they come, positive or negative, it is the Universe (or our Higher Self) expressing itself through our feelings.  None of our emotions are “bad” and there’s nothing “wrong” with any of them but we have been conditioned to think otherwise, for the most part, so when in survival mode we are typically in a fight or flight situation which can cause a feeling of “panic”.  If we can shift our ourselves into a place of Allowance with our emotions we find that they are there to help us grow and learn although at times this makes us feel vulnerable in many ways.  When times get tough emotionally it can lead us to a place of feeling like the path of Spirit isn’t “working” because in order to find Joy we also have to rid ourselves of the lower vibrational emotions which means we have to see them, feel them, and let them go on a cellular level.  Not such an easy task when there is emotional pain involved as it is in our very Nature to avoid “pain” so to actually be Grateful for the pain is another step up the proverbial ladder.  This is why it’s called Spiritual PRACTICE and it takes practice to “get it right”.

Energetically there is a great deal of “chaos” in the “field” as we Awaken from the density of the fear-based, lower vibrational emotions.  This means that we are all in the process of Healing which is a Beautiful thing by its very Nature and something we can all be Grateful for on both an individual and collective basis.  Truths are surfacing in every aspect of our existence and some of these truths can be painful on an emotional level and the pain comes in the form of feeling unworthy and unlovable.  In short, our emotions are the way we “communicate” with Spirit and/or our Higher Self so this is how we let Spirit know what brings us Joy and what brings “pain”.  When we focus on only the pain or negativity we find more pain and negativity to greet us and in order to shift this perspective it’s almost as easy as turning on a switch – the switch of Gratitude.

In the Art of Bushido a “warrior” is expected to find Gratitude when a weakness is exposed because it Allows an Opportunity to reinforce the armor if you will.  Whenever we are feeling “lack” we are not in a Spiritual place, period.  Although the “lack” may be very, very real it should not ever be the primary focus as this is what makes the lack seem and feel more intense.  If one can’t find Gratitude in a given situation it’s okay to go back and find Gratitude from areas of the past or future in order to lead us to the place of NOW where we live moment to moment as is intended.  When we find Gratitude for the things in Life that are pleasing to us we REceive MORE of the things that are pleasing to us!  However, it’s not enough to just think “thank you” and move on rather we have to Allow ourselves the intense EMOTION of Gratitude.  Think of oneself as a weary wanderer in the desert who hasn’t had a sip of water in days and suddenly the oasis appears bringing an overwhelming sense of Gratitude at this most Magical sight.  This is the Emotion of Gratitude that must be felt and not just spoken in order to be effective.  It takes practice to really embrace the Emotion of it and to Allow oneself to feel it Truly.

It’s okay to start small as it’s the little things in Life that bring the most Joy.  A bright blue sky, the smell of an infant, the autumn leaves on the trees, or the smile from a dear friend are all “simple” things to be Thankful for.  Once we begin it doesn’t take long to to feel truly Blessed and by stoking the fire of Gratitude we find ourselves on a completely different path where Life and Love become Free and Easy.  We  have to BElieve we are Worthy of the Love, Joy, Happiness, Peace, and/or stability we are seeking and the feeling of BEing Worthy is also a tremendous Gift.  When we feeI, on an energetic and cellular level, that we are Worthy of our own Happiness we can begin to feel the Gratitude even more profoundly.  When we Allow ourselves to feel Grateful for even the negative areas of our Lives, because it’s showing us something about ourselves deep withIN, we find ourselves feeling Blessed which is also a Gift in and of itself.  But, there’s even more as one grows in the practice of Gratitude…there really IS Magic!

The best way to really encompass Gratitude into our energetic field is by beginning a Gratitude journal or specific practice.  This seems simple, I know, but it consistently surprises me how many people who are unwilling to incorporate this very simple practice into their Lives.  If you don’t know where or how to begin there’s a great book called “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne which is an accompaniment to the book “The Secret”.  It’s a daily 28 day practice of marrying oneself to the emotion of Gratitude and couldn’t be more simple.  When we embrace this practice our Spiritual or energetic signature begins to Create synchronicities and openings in our Lives which we can rely on by way of our Intuition.  Solutions to problems previously thought of as “unsolvable” suddenly have the most simplistic answers.  When we are Grateful for our relationships, good or bad, they automatically get better.  When we are Grateful for our financial status, good or bad, we find more opportunities to grow the bank account.  When we are Grateful for our Positive and Loving emotions we REceive more Positive and Loving ways to express them.  When we are Grateful for our Health and our bodies we begin to Heal, both physically and emotionally.  REmember, we are a society of “instant gratification” and it’s easy to slip back into a feeling of “lack” when things don’t show up when or how we are expecting.  The Universe or your Higher Self knows what you need, and in what order, more than you do sometimes so stay Patient and Grateful as you work through the process.  Just because we can’t SEE it in our physical world doesn’t mean it isn’t there or on its way so don’t give up just as the seed is beginning to burst forth with Life.  REmember that Self wants Self to be Happy and Self knows that you are Worthy of REceiving this Gift.
