People often associate self-love with narcissism. They devalue themselves in order to avoid this sin. Modesty is a beautiful virtue and so is kindness. However, loving yourself is the most beautiful virtue of all. To know that you are worthy of divinity. To know that you are divinity. That you are everything and nothing at the same time. Without self-love it is impossible to help others. We help others to help ourselves and we help ourselves so that we maybe able to help others.
The feminist movement was the one of most deserved acts of civil disobedience. The female, mother energy had become bastardized in the intellect of the modern man. He no longer looked for wisdom from his partner and life had become solitary and isolated for both energies. Few carried in their hearts the knowledge that all are one. The time of the ending of duality is upon all the children of Gaia. Mother Earth no longer wishes to be a place of hate, fear and conflict. In this time, men feel as if they can control this ultimate woman of creation and bring her back into their control. The highest irony is that she can never be property of anything other than existence herself. In her divine nature, the shape of the earth will reform. The mortal men will try and ruin her great metamorphosis. Instead of holding pity or hatred for these foolish children of Gaia, laugh as their inconvenient truth comes to find it’s own reckoning in their epiphany.
While the female presence is gaining ground where once it had lost its pristine position in the process of spirituality and political organization, many representing those energies throughout this lifetime feel as they have been indefinitely wronged. They struggle daily to live with the fate left to them by their ill-conceived ancestors. Playing into this illusion of separation and segregation not only holds back the female spirit but the spirit of all mankind. Release those deep suited angers and tensions through this turbulent time and your efforts will not go unrewarded. All of life is one and one life is the all. “The white line only serves to divide myself from me.”
I have recently become pregnant. Throughout all of this, people have been telling me what to do and what not to do. Not really knowing if they have the best advice or not. What I’ve discovered is that their is no replacement for what the human body wants. Many of the things I have done correctly, I have done because that’s what I knew I had to do at the time. If something will likely make me sick, then my body will automatically reject it.
The ascension is quickly approaching. Many individuals feel that because they consider themselves an energy healer, shaman or any other title that they are going to ascend. This is a dangerous point of view. The ego can become entangle with your spiritual work and stop ascension in it’s tracks.
Remember that everyone is worthy of ascending, if that’s what they wish. That all beings on this planet are capable of miracles and that this is what makes everyone great. Try not to get bog down with titles you give yourself. They are superficial and will never offer true divination.
Courage is more than bravery. Bravery is ignorance to the danger one faces with one’s own pride. Courage recognizes the danger but continues on in spite of risk. Right now in America we need an awakening of courage more than anything else. The courage to turn to alternative technologies and energies. The courage to give the power of deciding back to the people. The courage to trust one and another to do the right thing.
Our first moments of the day set the precedence for the mood of the rest of our waking hours. When you wake up plan a few moments for meditation. If you are more familiar with meditating, then this can be done within your commute to your daily responsibilities. Starting your day from a peaceful place can offer the ability to transform your daily life.
The sun is a source of power and energy. It has been used through history in several religious traditions. Today, go out in the sun, find a peaceful space and give yourself 15 minutes for a daylight meditation. Most people concentrate on learning meditation in the dark. Meditation can take place in a brightly light space.
Envision the sun as the cleansing light. Feel as it purifies your body on a cellular level. Take in the vitamins and necessary nutrients this great life sources generously gives.
We all have moments where someone tries to catch us off guard or embarrass us. Instead of jumping into anger go into the place where you find inner peace. Take a deep breath. This will give you a longer, more enjoyable life. Remember the best revenge is leading a good life.
There comes a time in everyone’s life when they wish they could leave a large trust fund to care for those they leave behind. This is occasionally possible; however, not likely. People get caught up in number figures and forget the tangible skills. Teaching someone a skilled trade or a valuable talent can be worth more in the long run. Instead of finding yourself lost and praying for material goods, share your knowledge with those you wish to care for.
Your open mind is more valuable than an endless bank account.
Just as a prism refracts many colors, our hearts refract many emotions. Realize that you are not these emotions. These emotions are a state of your existence. These emotions can flow through you without consuming you. Life is much easier when your concentration is focused on merely being. To obtain the observer state an individual must look past personal interjections and opinions without passing judgements.
All judgements are relative to outside forces and experiences that do no necessarily attribute merit to the current situation. The ability to find oneself in a born again innocent state.
And reaching for those stars.
Central focus meditation can become a major tool if you desire a more realistic visual experience while advancing yourself spiritually. Follow each line in and out of the center and allow the graphic to begin to move infront of your eyes.
Sometimes in life all of the dividends of decisions can add up to make an enormous whole. Overwhelmed and frustrated by the ever growing demand place upon us by our current world economy people are confronted with negative emotions. The teachings of many shamans can show that repression of angry, fear-driven or hurt emotions can only cause a permanent scar to wear on the metaphorical sleeve.
Look not to holding in these feelings. Let yourself express them. Let them wash through you and out like a wave. The further under the water you submerge your body, the less the friction of the currents will move you about.
Once they have past, you can look out onto new waters. Your perception makes up a greater toll of the how the world treats you than can be imagined.
