A place to record all of the above.
Our lives are put together by experiences that combine together to be one big experience called our life...right? Right. We can look at our life as a movie, or a play, with different scenes and acts as the events that occur throughout our life. How do YOU want to experience it?
Let's take a look from the big picture perspective. We can most certainly get caught up in each scene, other wise known as our day to day happenings, that we forget (or sometimes have a hard time) to remember everything from the Soul's perspective. That is what the big picture is for each one of us. Our Soul is directing this play. Of course there are bigger pictures, however, that is for another post.
So the big Soul picture. What if I were to tell you that everything you are experiencing and are going to experience has already happened? That the events are playing out and you are feeling them as you would watching a play or movie? Does it resonate? Is that a hard concept to wrap your mind around? Then don't try. Just be with it. Allow yourself to feel it vibrationally in your being. I can tell you from my knowing, my experience and Spirit sharing with me that yes, all of what we are experiencing and will experience has already occurred. Some of the events you just aren't able to see with your eyes or touch with your hands yet.
For example, I had a client ask me if the events they were doing at the time was going to cause them to miss out on a meeting and opportunity. I heard from the Divine a big NO. The outcome is already there because the meeting(event) had already occurred. Of course she didn't see it at the time she asked, however, she did get to experience it. So yep. It showed up.
I get it. This is not something we are taught, it's not tangible, unless you have already awakened to it. Kinda like energy work. ;-) This really goes back to the post about the time weavers. Time is not as we know it. We can collapse time expand, slow, speed, etc. Scroll back to the Time Weaver post if you want to know more about that.
Humor me for a moment. What if you were to ready embrace that all of the events in your life have already happened? How does that feel? Is is a relief? Stressful? Sheesh! I know! A lot of questions today! For me personally, it relieves any pressure, stress, anxiety that I have had surrounding "getting things done" in my life. That doesn't mean I am just sitting around waiting for life to happen. If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that's not what I am about at all.
What can happen to us as humans is we get so concerned with how things are going to turn out, how things are going to go, and punish ourselves if we "didn't get it right." Or if we don't have it perfect before it happens. What else does that do? It takes us away from the present moment. The now.... It also is not showing ourselves kindness, compassion, empathy and the unconditional love we crave.
So in each moment, we can choose how we want to experience the events. We have already acted them out. They have already occurred... So how do YOU want to experience them?
Until next time...
This time of year brings up the topic of gratitude. Gratitude is the attitude. It is more than the attitude, but it is a great place to start. It is more like a state of being--Gratitude. How often do you go through the motions of saying you are grateful for things but don't really feel it?
Or maybe you have a hard time feeling gratitude with what is going on in different areas of the country or even in your community. I do understand it can be quite upsetting and disturbing. You may be thinking to yourself that the world has gone mad, someone has to do something about it and things need to change! Yes. They do. Which is precisely what is going on. Change. The #1 thing you can do to help this change that is occurring globally, is to act locally. To act so local that it is downright intimate. Yes. The change that you can help with is to go within and change. Change whatever isn't aligning you with your Soul and the Divine Love that you are. That we all are. We can say all that we want that something needs to change and someone needs to do something about it, but that is looking externally for answers isn't it?
Of course the very first step we can do is take some deep breaths. Fill up your belly first before you fill up your lungs. And step into gratitude. Be grateful that you can take those deep breaths. Think of five things you are and can be grateful for. How does that feel after you do that? Are you questioning even doing that? Are you thinking it is passive to do that? It's not passive at all! We are aligning with ourselves and what IS in the very moment. The more we can be in alignment with the gratitude, with the vibration of our Soul, the more we help the collective. The more we will have the answers of whether we are to reach out and help in certain ways. That we can be the ones "doing" something about it. Because we already are by connecting to the Divine by connecting and aligning with our Soul .
Does the gratitude not feel sincere? Then, just breathe. Breathe with whatever you are feeling. We can sometimes start to beat ourselves up for not being able to feel grateful. It's ok if you can't. Then just focus on the deep breaths. You will eventually come to a place where you can feel the gratitude. Don't feel like you have to rush it or skip steps by not feeling what you are feeling. Be grateful to the one that is having trouble feeling the gratitude!
A wonderful reminder is, that we don't have to wait for Thanksgiving and the holidays to focus on being grateful and sharing the gratitude. This is an every day focus! Every day, before I get out of bed in the morning, I focus on things(a lot of the time 5) I am grateful for. I also focus on what my intention is for the day. Sometimes it's how I can share more love with others. Sometimes it is how can I show a stranger more kindness. It's amazing how my days are filled with joy, love and gratitude. Every day! Even if I have and "off" day. They are still filled with the joy, love and gratitude. I will finish my day as I slip into bed with gratitude's too. It makes for pleasant dreams. :-)
Try it. Whatever level you can. If you are feeling the gratefulness, Do it! If you can only focus on the deep breaths, Do it! I would love to hear how it changes your immediate world. And we will watch how it will change the bigger picture. I AM grateful for every single one of you. I love you.
Until next time....
So....have you been feeling the crazy energies that have been going on lately?!?!?! The full moon on October 15th definitely had some strong mojo with it. ;-) With all of the powerful transformational energies happening, it further perpetuates my (all of us really, should we choose to accept it) growth. Growth sometimes brings more questions than answers. It seems that when I get an answer, I have a ton more questions that arise. Ack!
In the midst of all this shift/growth, I have three main questions that I am asking myself. Maybe you can ask yourself these questions (or similar ones) also. Or, maybe you are already asking yourself these questions and more!
The first question is, "How can I/you/we shift the old programs and patterns that are arising now?" Of course acknowledging the programs and patterns is a part of this equation. If you aren't recognizing or are unaware of programs or patterns that are creating stagnation in the flow of your energy and life, then maybe your question could be, "ARE there any old programs and patterns that I can shift right now?"
I recommend tapping into your intuition and commune with your Higher Self on this one. When you get your answers, there are many, many wonderful people of this world that can support your process if that is in fact what you require...which brings me to question number two.
The second question is, "Do I/you/we need support outside of myself for the repatterning and release of old patterns?" Let's face it, we aren't alone. As a matter of fact if we are One, how could we possibly be alone? A sub question (you didn't think I was really going to leave it at just three questions did you?!?!? ;-) ) is, "Do I usually reach out to others in a desperation way, or do I use it as an enhancement to my intuition and personal work?"
When we listen to our intuition on this question (and subquestion), then we will know whether to go get support from others or if we already have the tools we need. Remember, the support doesn't necessarily have to be in human form. There are plenty of Angels and other Masterful Souls that are more than willing to help support your growth. I recommend doing the opposite of what your go-to usually is. We can use them as a crutch at times, if our insecurities arise.
The third question is, "With the old patterns/programs, are you trying to have it all figured out as soon as you recognize that you have them?" Or "Have you recognized them for a while, but still haven't had clear direction on how to shift them, so you are just plain tired of them and are trying to figure and release the patterns/programs out as soon as you can?" I get it. I really do! You aren't alone. You may be saying, "enough already!" We can especially say that to ourselves when it is so fucking uncomfortable to be in our own skin. Even our own skin feels like it's suffocating us at times. When we are in physical discomfort it may seem to take us over the edge too!
My recommendation here is one of Self Love. Take the deep breaths, give yourself a big hug and compassion like you would a child. You don't have to have it all figured out, you are doing the best you can in every moment! That's what we all are ever doing--the best we can in every moment. (This can go with all of the questions)
I feel it's healthy to question ourselves in this way. Not questioning our intuition...but questioning the old unconscious patterns and programs. Remember, we don't always get the answers right away. I know, I know, we want that magic pill to make it all better. Guess what? WE are our own magic pill. Yep. You read that right. We give ourselves answers, however, a lot of the times they are in baby steps. Or baby magic pills, however you would like to look at it. ;-)
You may be asking, "Why not the get whole kit and caboodle all at once to clear and repattern?" Well my friends....that is as individual an answer as there are souls in this universe. I can share with you that sometimes I do get the whole kit and caboodle, and then there are times (more often than not) that it's my old patterns and programs that keep it small...how about that conundrum?!?!?!?!
Every single one of you is absolutely amazing and I am in complete awe of you! You are so brave and courageous! (AS AM I.) ;-) You are going through so much and you are here! On this planet! WOW! I am here to remind you that you can and will step into peace and harmony again. The old patterns and programs are just one more way to give ourselves the opportunity to love, love, love!
**Remember, I am here to support you if that's what your Higher Self is telling you. You know where to find me. ;-)
Keep on keepin' on until next time....
The breath. So basic. So elemental, yet so profound and necessary. It is the basis of life. It begins with silence and ends with silence. We so often take it for granted--the breath. That it will always be there. Yet, we abandon it immediately when we get stressed out, when we get anxious. We even abandoned our breath when we get excited and joyous and feel like bouncing off of the walls. We do. Stop and ponder that one for a moment.
Ultimately we are abandoning ourselves...the universe....the Isness. We ARE the breath. We are the expression of God. There is only the breath. Yes, our universe is complex with it's multi-dimensions, etc.. However, it is also so simplistic. It gives us the simple reminders of the breath, to remind us of who we truly are, where we came from and where we are returning--Love. Yes. The breath is Love. The breath is God. It is the most wonderful thing you can do to show yourself Love--To breath. So when we aren't taking those deep breaths, at the very least being present with our breath, then it's an opportunity for us to wake up in the part of our consciousness that forgets to be here...now...with our breath.
In some ways, I am deeply aware of events and experiences in our life that can give us so much insight to the bigger picture of the universe, current stasis of this planet, etc. I will give you an example of this. Earlier this week, my husband fell off of the roof of our house. The landing knocked the breath out of him, and broke 3 of his ribs, with internal bruising. He is now having a hard time breathing with the pain. When I was walking him from the car into the house from taking him to the hospital (definitely needed in this case), I kept having to remind him to take the deep breaths. He kept going to the shallow breathing from the pain.
He stated, in our slow walk, "It really feels better when I take the deep breaths." Yahoo! I didn't have to prompt him to recognize how much the deep breath is necessary, no matter how much it hurt. Well sheesh, even the amazing RN gave him a breathy thingy (incentive spirometer) to keep his lungs working with the deep breath so his lungs don't fill with fluid. The alopathic medical field recognizes the importance of breath, even if it is for a different reason. And...Well, Goly-Gee! Even our body says, "Please love me by breathing the deep breaths!"
It was such a reminder for me. I have been talking for years about connecting with the breath. Yet again, I was reminded on a deeper level about the amazing breath. There are profound moments in every moment if we are present with them. The only time we have is now. The only breath we have is now. The only Love we have is now. Why not make it a deep breath to fully connect yourself to your true essence? When you take the deep breath in the now, you are breathing for all time, dimensions....everything. when you find yourself going in the extreme of any feeling, check in with yourself. How is my breath? I betcha it will bring your present and slow everything down. Heck, it may even feel like you are seeing things for the first time. Which, you really are because you only have this now and you only have first experiences with this now. Pretty cool isn't it?!?!
So let's take a deep breath together, in this very now....feel that? That's you! :-)
