Thought For Today – May 8th

If you don’t know which direction to go, turn around and look where you came from.  Maybe you are where you need to be going, or maybe you just need a new path.

Dissed

Distant.  Discontent.  Disassociate.  Dishearten.  Disrespect.  Disabled.  Dislike.  Dishonest.  Distort.  Disagree.  Disbelief.  Disaffirm.

DISCONNECT.

Dis- is a Latin prefix meaning apart, or having a negative, reversing effect.  Using dis in front of any word would describe our current state of disorder.  It is certainly creating a multitude of negative thoughts.  I know have succumbed to them.  I also know that it is our Ego struggling to wrest control of our subconscious from the Light, keeping us feeling separate and afraid.

The dark, negative energies hate to be disrespected and will swallow you up if you allow them.  Give your Ego a smack and remind it to stay the f*ck, 6 feet back, and practice mental distancing.  You, your soul, is in charge.

If you are feeling a little lost or uncertain and don’t know what to believe, then you are disconnected from the Source.  Shut off those news channels, stay away from crabby social media posts, go to a quiet little corner of your home, yard or other outdoor space and tune back in.

All around you, and all around and on this planet are legions of Angels, Ascended Masters and all other Divine Guides ready and waiting to help you.  All you have to do is Ask.  Any time, anywhere, all the time.  Just Ask.  “Help me turn my thoughts positive” is a good place to start.  Suck in a deep breath and feel your heart expand.  This physically opens you to higher energy.  Pour out your feelings and thoughts to your Guardian Angels.  Allow yourself to experience your feelings.  Sadness, hopelessness, anxiety and worry get stuck in your cells and keep you in negativity.  Practice a little handwashing on your cells by doing a little mental “sudsing” to get the junk out of you, and then allow your tears to wash it all away.  Your Guardian Angels and all the other Divine Beings are there to help you through this.

Not only will you feel cleansed, but able to open your Crown Chakra and feel the Light pour back into you.  There is no social distancing with the Light, only peace and contentment.

Spiritual Distancing

I have been in a retreat.  Who am I kidding, most everyone is.  The stay-at-home order has most of us confined to our spaces, often with only our thoughts to occupy our time.  Not a bad thing, because when was the last time you actually got to sit down and really focus on something.

Choose your thoughts wisely.

I tend to be an introspective person anyway, so this gives me more time to hone in on my interior world.  I have been able to focus on shifting my energy to a higher frequency, which not only benefits me, but a significant portion of my community.  As my Heart Chakra expands, it helps others to expand as well.

I have time to connect to the Higher Realms for guidance and support, and sometimes just to let go of my fears and worries.  I spend time researching and reading what the spiritual community has posted to increase my knowledge as well as my spiritual gifts.  I then reach out to others with support, guidance and Light in order to assist with the transformation of our world.

Earth, and everything in, on and around it, is going through a change.  There is no stopping what is going on.  It is all changing for the better, so why would you want to resist?  Use distancing as your opportunity to raise the frequency of your Inner Light.  You will have heard the names of public figures who support spiritual guidance.  Find their websites and social media pages.  Read, study, research, anything you can do to support your inner wellbeing.  When you can focus on peace, self-nurturing, creative expression, and time in nature, your path through this transformation will be easier.  Spiritual distancing will represent the space that your bright Light encompasses.

Be well and shine your Heart Light.

Good Grief

We are going through a collective change as our planet moves into a higher frequency of light energy. Changes are happening and more are coming, but they will lead us in a better direction providing we do our inner work. Spirit is guiding us every step of the way so listen to your guidance.

It is interesting that the COVID-19 virus is affecting the lungs and breathing. The word “Spirit” originates from the Latin word spirare, which means to breathe. Slow, deep breathing helps us to access Spirit. If you read Louise Hay’s book “Heal Your Body” (1982, Hay House Inc), the mental causes for lung issues are: depression, grief, fear of taking in life, and not feeling worthy of living life fully. Unresolved grief lives deep within the lungs, and we are collectively being challenged to face our shadows. Grief is not limited to death and dying, but any unresolved emotional pain.

Healing grief can be a painful task, but trust me on this, it is worth every tear you shed. About 13 years ago, my life was in shambles. I was going through a divorce with a verbally abusive alcoholic, the country was starting its economic recession so we were forced to stay in our house for a year and a half until it sold at a loss. My relationship with my mother was never very good, but it got worse. I allowed people to take advantage of my kindness and hard-working ethics. Basically, I hit bottom. I kept asking myself why I let this constantly happen. So one day, I stripped myself naked and stood in front of my full-length mirror and took a good look at myself. What was I lacking? What was wrong with me? I mentally catalogued my physical faults and then did the same with my personality. And then came the behavior patterns. I didn’t like them. Then I made myself catalogue all my good stuff. I knew that I was basically a good, kind-hearted, generous woman, but my boundaries and lack of self-worth made all that look weak. I was determined to change. And I did.

It took about five years of intensive self-work. I did most of it myself, but I know that is not for everyone. I love to read and research, and by doing so, cements the knowledge in my brain. I learned to love myself. I learned that not having contact with my family stopped the mind-f*ck dialogue I had to endure. I learned how to be my own mother, by nurturing my lost inner child. I learned how to allow people to help and support me. I learned how to say No. I cried a lot. Sometimes deep, lung-burning sessions that I thought would never stop. I grieved for what I lost and what I never had. And you know what?

It worked.

Trust me on this. It worked. I am not the same person I was ten years ago. I am content with my life, and most days I feel joy within. I am in constant connection with Spirit for guidance on my best life. If it weren’t for Spirit’s guidance, we wouldn’t be living in our house across the street from a beautiful urban lake and within walking distance of groceries and take-out food, all of which is allowable during our current stay-at-home status. I know that my energy frequency is ascending, and it will help me hold the light of Divine Love within my heart in order to assist with raising the frequency of the planet.

As I write this, I can feel the healing energy spreading. If you would like to increase the healing energy, do your grief work. Use this time of rest and retreat to face your inner demons. Nurture yourself as you would a newborn baby. Allow yourself to grieve for whatever losses you have faced and maybe are now facing. Letting it wash away with your tears can only be good grief.

Pole Dancing

Steamy, naked bodies whirling around a metal pole to the rhythm of pumping music.

That’s one way to get your attention.

Wipe the shock off your face; I’m not writing about anything pornographic. In this article, I am writing about polarity, specifically in terms of your thoughts. Although by now, you have gone from shock to wonder. That first sentence is an example of how your thoughts can quickly be changed.

Magnetics have north and south poles, in opposition to each other. You’ve seen this in action, when you’ve put two of them together. One side attracts, the other repels. Emotions have polarity too. Think love to hate, happy to sad, anger to calm and the list goes on. So it is with the Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction states that where you focus your thoughts is what you will attract into your life. So, wouldn’t you want to keep your, err, “pole dancing” to the highest polarity level you can maintain? If you would like more money in your life, but feel that you live in poverty or that money is scarce, what do you think you will attract? More of the same. But what if wealth just seems unbelievable to you? How about just shifting your thoughts one step higher? Focus your thoughts on being self-supportive. You might begin to see job opportunities appear. If you act on those that appeal to you, you very likely will have a new job. Then take the next step in shifting your thoughts upward. Maybe it’s putting money in a savings account or other form of reliable investment. Continue to work on shifting your thoughts upward and you will attract what you need.

Even if you like to boogie down, keep your thoughts rising up that pole.

Food Frenzy

You’ve seen it; rows and rows of empty shelves at the grocery store. Carts piled high with food and paper goods. Panic buying, they call it, but what if it begins with something more primal?

If you look at the pyramid representing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs; food, water, warmth and rest are at the base of the tier and are defined as Deficiency Needs. These needs arise when there is a real or perceived lack in a person’s life. The longer this lack remains, the more the desire to fulfill the need. Currently, the fear of shelter-in-place has many people flocking to grocery stores to stock up on items to meet this need, sometimes in excess.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

If you read any of the local government closure orders, food and the supply chain are considered essential services and remain open regardless of the shelter-in-place. There is more than enough food to go around and the opportunity to get it. Those quarantined or self-isolating can have food delivered.

Cravings are intensified during a crisis. Anxiety sufferers tend to reach for salty, crunchy foods. Bread and pasta people need calming and comforting. Cookies, cakes and pies represent hugs, pleasure and reassurance. Dairy works as an antidepressant. Think about which shelves in the stores are the most plundered. In the book “Constant Craving” by Doreen Virtue (Hay House, 1995), she explains the emotional needs behind food cravings and how to overcome them.

Food cravings tend to be our first go-to for emotional comfort. As you reach for that bag of chips, stop for a moment and listen to your thoughts. Are you stressed? Do you have another option besides eating, unless you are truly hungry in which case, you are better off grabbing a crunchy carrot. If you are housebound can you do some form of exercise to burn off the stress? Maybe even throwing a pillow at the wall will help. Do you live in an area where you can safely get out and walk or run, while maintaining social distancing?

Be mindful of your need for extra food. When we come out of this pandemic, we don’t want to be carrying an extra load of body fat. Tend to your emotional needs first. Cry, scream, write letters and burn them, meditate, talk to the dog or cat, sit outside in the sunshine, walk, run, anything to keep from stuffing yourself with food. You’ll be glad you did.

Reflection

I’ve spent most of this last week in reflection, meditation, checking in with the virtual Lightworker community and asking the Universe for guidance. It has been an overflow of enlightenment, as well as information, so I’m going to do a series of articles to address different aspects of our global situation.

If you are a Lightworker, you most likely already know how you can support this planet. If you think you might be a Lightworker, it is time to step aboard as we need all hands on deck to right this world. If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about or think I’m nutty, that’s okay, I respect whatever method you are using to make sense of this or just stay safe.

We are going through an ascension in energy, that began December 12, 2012. It is a twenty-year process, and we are nearing the middle, and so far not many have noticed. Thus, the grand sh*tshow that is getting everyone’s attention.

We have long been operating in the lower frequency of energy patterns, the place where negativity has a home. Fear, anger, sadness, rage and an endless amount of stuffed-down emotions have created a whirling storm of negativity. You have only to hang out on social media to figure that one out. This cloud of negativity has covered many dark aspects of society: bullying, incest, rape, child abuse, torture, sex trafficking, the list goes on. But the Light of the Universe is far more powerful and is determined to bring about this ascension, and for quite some time we have seen those who hover in the fringes brought to justice. If the Universe wants something out of your life, it gets it done.

What is this ascension of energy? Aside from our physical body, we have an energetic body with 7 spinning wheels called chakras. Science has demonstrated that we are made of electromagnetic energy that is a constantly changing form. Chakras govern different areas of our body and we can improve our well-being by maintaining them. Sort of like maintaining the engine in your car. This energy is capable of functioning at a higher frequency and is beneficial to us if we learn how to tune into it. From the time of 12/12/2012, our bodies are making an automatic shift to this higher frequency, but not everyone is ready for this. Thus the grand sh*tshow.

Sometimes the only way to get someone’s attention is to create a crisis of major proportions.

Our world has gotten a little too caught up in running. We run here, we run there and never get anyplace meaningful. We turn over all our important tasks to technology and forget how to read a story to our children. Sorry, but Alexa is not a substitute. Most of us chase money in jobs we hate. We stuff ourselves with food, drink and substances to avoid coming to terms with the shadows in our souls. We send hate mail through social media, even if we don’t really know why, but just because someone else is doing it. We’ve sold our souls to disconnection, when we can’t even connect within our hearts.

The time to make changes has thumped us right in the chest. Many people are sequestered at home, either ill, expecting to be ill or just trying to make the best of the situation. Use this time to look within yourself and survey your surroundings. Are you living your life purpose or are you just existing? Is it time to make a change in your job and pursue something that gives you meaning? Are you overburdened by your housing? Do you have family or friends who continuously take-take-take and never give anything back? Is your relationship sucking you into a deep, dark hole? This is the negativity that is staring you right in the face. What changes to you need to make?

Or, what changes have you already made?

If you are living your life purpose, then you will be able to ride out this wave and come out stronger and better than you can even imagine. If you are a Lightworker, then your prayers, your healing energy, your uplifting thoughts will radiate outward like the Sun coming up on a Summer morning.

The planet is healing, and it will change and shift into a higher energy even if you are not ready. Why not be part of the Light and transformation? Hold the energy of Love and Healing deep within your heart, because that is all that is really asked of you by the Universe.

Reset

This morning I read an article on “The Power Path – School of Shamanism” website titled “The Corona Virus: The Bigger Picture”.  here  I have been following this site for a number of years, and have gained much insight from their articles and monthly forecasts. What stood out the most for me was the idea of Reset. We’ve been determinedly plowing forward with the current way of life, and it isn’t working all that well. There is no denying that many destructive things are being ignored, and now a rampant virus is a very blatant indicator that we need to make some changes.

Lately, I’ve read a number of articles about how the millennials are so stressed, even to the point that they can’t tolerate handclapping. Those of us older people snort derisively, complain about their incessant use of marijuana to calm down, and demand that they grow up and handle life like we did.

What if the millennials are right, and all of us have created this go-go-go, get-it-done-right-now world?

Since many of us were teens, technological advances have connected the world delivering almost anything in real-time. We’re excited that we can see what’s going on in another part of the world, at any time of the day or night. We can have food or other supplies delivered to our door whenever we want. We can communicate with one another with a device in the palm of our hands. More powerful, efficient, clean-burning vehicles get us from place to place. Vast strides in the medical world have kept cancer from spreading too quickly, and I’m sure the cure is coming.

While these many things have been gifts to improve our lives, and make us live longer and healthier, there are downsides. Faster has become entitled. Faster has become expected. Faster has become a demand. And the cost is our mental health. Anxiety and stress drive us to do more and it is not always a good thing.

Mother Nature feels the burn as well, but doesn’t hesitate to snap at us when we’ve gone too far. Maybe, just maybe, this is our dear Mother Nature telling us it is time to slow down. Many businesses and government offices have closed their doors to the public. Events, and gatherings of more than 10 are banned. Schools are empty, and children are at home. What message, and purpose, might this be saying to us?

Is it time for a Reset?

When was the last time you sat down on the floor with your child and played a game? When was the last time you took a nap, read a book, or fixed yourself a nice meal that didn’t come out of a box?

I realize that many of you might be out of a job, and in danger of financial ruin, so I am not trying to downplay the reality or the hardships that come with global turmoil. But staying in a state of anxiety does not serve you either. Creative ideas and solutions do not come when you are in a state of panic. Take some time to play. When you are relaxed, you’ll be able to formulate plans to keep yourself on track. Maybe some of those plans are to divest yourself of things that are more stressors than useful. Sometimes facing ruin is our greatest path to a better life.

The Coronavirus primarily affects our lungs and our ability to breathe. Do you find yourself holding your breath? Do you feel suffocated by your circumstances? Symbolically, this virus is “exposing” us to the truth of our reality. Maybe you are not in an area with a large risk of exposure. Maybe your life is not feeling the pressure of this crisis. If so, you are more than likely on your path and don’t need the challenges presented. Your path might be to stay safe and ride it out, or it maybe that you need to be of service to others. Taking the time to relax and play to relieve the anxiety is the first step. Connecting to the Universe through meditation or prayer comes next, so you can receive guidance. And then you will be able to see if you need to do a little Reset of your life.
