Thought For Today – July 22nd

Ignorance breeds fear.  It is a simple thing to condemn or hate that which we do not understand.  Open your mind to allow in any or all possibilities.  Feel in your heart that which resonates within you.  Knowledge is not only power, it is Peace.

Hold The Light

I needn’t have to tell you how crazy things are.  The THING is still an issue, we’ve witnessed the awful destruction of a beautiful human’s life, which has escalated into riots, and 6 planets are in retrograde this month.  Including my dear little friend Mercury, who plans on garbling the communication even more.  It’s no wonder we are all feeling a little crabby and out-of-sorts.

You must Hold The Light.

It’s tough when negativity is beating at you every day.  Many of you are still out of work and struggling.  Those who are back at work are making up for lost time and long for the days when they could sleep in.  Signs everywhere telling you what you can and can’t do and where you need to be.  News channels incessantly blathering about gloom and doom.  I think we need to mask all news media and prevent them from speaking.

The Light will overcome the Dark, but you must Hold The Light.  By that, I mean that you must hunker down within yourself and call down the brilliant and powerful energies from the Universe.  Call down the Angels.  Call down the Ascended Masters.  Call down all the Higher Dimensional Beings available to help each and every one of us from falling into negativity.  Ask them to help you.

Focus intently on what you wish to see in your life.  Powerful manifestation is available to all of us, so use it wisely.  Use your imagination to place a video screen out in front of you.  Project onto it your skills, your desires, your joy for the life you want to live.  See it like a movie with you as the starring role and write the story.

Hold that vision clear and keep your thoughts directed towards it.  You are capable of bringing this into physical reality.

Stay away from mainstream media as much as possible.  It is filled with conflicting information and enough negative hype to start its own fire.  Instead, go out in nature even if for five minutes.  Suck in some fresh air, let the sun soak into your skin and listen to the birdsongs.  Take a moment to sit and relax.  Nap or sleep.  Eat well.  And laugh.

The more of us who keep our inner light shining bright, the more the negative energy recedes and eventually dissolves until there will be no more dark.  Imagine what a life filled with joy, cooperation, harmony and abundance looks like.  Make it so.

Extra-Introvert

I haven’t had the motivation to blog lately.  I’ve seen this mentioned on another site I follow, so I guess I’m not alone.  I would guess that lack of motivation for anyone would be a current problem.

Still, it bugs me and I had to think about it for awhile.

I know that I am an introvert.  I “recharge” my energy by alone time and doing something relaxing, like reading.  Extroverts need their people time to feel better.  So, it has occurred to me that I am getting a big extra dose of relaxation time, and without any big amount of stress in my life – like what came with my former job – I don’t have the “urgency” to get things done.  Hmm.  I suppose this is what comes with job retirement.  I shouldn’t feel disturbed by that, and I’m not really; it’s just different.  It is something new to adjust into, so as they say “practice makes perfect”.  I’m still in the process of developing my daily routine and I like it.

I have been working on my next book, so that is productive.  I am following the same theme, but taking it to the next level and making it a journey through healing.  I guess the blog got set aside due to that work.  I also know that creativity of any kind has an ebb and flow rhythm.

Just wait until the tide comes in.

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.

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.

Published!

41ZJcig+cPL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_[1]I have just achieved a long-time dream and published my first book.  I used Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing and it was surprisingly simple.  The publishing part, that is; writing is much more of a challenge.

My book “Phucenschitt – Spirituality For People Who Swear” is in the same theme as my blog posts and represents my views of spirituality.  But with a twist, for those of you – like me – who aren’t afraid to flavor their speech with foul language.  Real life, after all, does include plenty of reasons to swear.  I believe it doesn’t lessen my beliefs in the Universe, but rather strengthens them.

Please feel free to look, review and maybe purchase.  I thank you for any attention you might give.  You can purchase from Amazon here: Book

Free Will

choice-2692466_1920

Choices. Which way do we choose? Is it right or wrong, good or bad? Does it lead to success or failure? I should I just sit and wait to see what happens?

Free Will. OUR choice to decide; not anyone else’s decision.

I like the lyrics of “Freewill”, from the band Rush:

“You can choose a ready guide, in some celestial voice. If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. You can choose from phantom fears, and kindness that can kill. I will choose a path that’s clear, I will choose free will.” (Released January 14, 1980, by Mercury Records, on the album “Permanent Waves”). (Rest in Peace, Neil Peart, you passed from us on January 7, 2020.)

You can stay stuck in fear, unable to decide and life will just float along regardless. Life will deal you a fast hand, and make you feel as though you didn’t get to choose. Were there warning signs, red flags that you chose to ignore? Could you have done something to change course?

Are you unable to trust yourself so you hand off the decision making to someone else and then feel resentment towards them for running your life? Or maybe you are thankful that they were there to help you along your path, but now it is time to take back control.

I recently read a quote in a subscription newsletter from Kelly McClain (you can find her on 12Listen). It stated, “your new life is going to cost you your old one”. Holy Sh*t! Does that make your toes curl in fear or in anticipation? Are you ready to take on that challenge or have you already been plotting the course and the new path is wide open?

Regardless of your thoughts or emotions, when planning your life path it is best to rely on trustworthy assistance. Even the lyrics point in this direction, “you can choose a ready guide, in some celestial voice”. There is always help available to you anytime, anyplace, in any way. The Universe has your back.

The Universe is comprised of a Higher Power, in whatever name you choose, and many other spiritual guides. Every human has one or more Guardian Angels. There are Archangels, available to anyone at all times, and you don’t have to think you are taking them away from anyone else. Ascended Masters, Spirit Guides and many others with pure loving thoughts and guidance are always available to you.

ASK THEM FOR HELP.

Because we are human, we were given the gift of free will choice so we could learn and grow our spirit. We are free to journey along as we wish. The guides in the Universe won’t interfere unless it is life or death and not our time, OR until we ask. So why take the path of fear and indecision when you have readily available help that will guide you to your best life? Ask them for their help.

Don’t know how? Find a quiet place where you can be by yourself. Get comfy and take a few deep breaths. As you breathe, allow your chest to expand and feel like your heart is opening up. Feel that space for a bit, it should feel warm, happy and safe. State your fears. Think the words or say them out loud. No one is around to hear you so you needn’t feel silly. The words can be simple or a big long running statement. No judgement here. Some examples: “should I take this job or keep looking?” “I want to move, but I don’t know if I should stay in the area or go somewhere else.” “Should I stay in this relationship?”

90% of the time when you get down into your heart, you already know the answer but were afraid to admit it. When you are talking to the Universe, thoughts and feelings will come into your head and body and will provide you with guidance. Pay attention. If those thoughts and feelings make you feel good, even if it means making an uncertain change, then your choice lies within them. If the thoughts make your stomach feel sick, they are not right for you. The Universe is always positive and always wants the best for you. Making you feel sick and scared is not in the plan. Your tummy might feel sickly from those “butterfly” feelings of anticipation. I think you know the difference.

If your path includes many decisions to move forward, play ball with the Universe. Keep asking, keep following the guidance and take action steps until you get to your happy place.

You got there of your own Free Will.

For simplicities sake: I had a choice to write this post. I also could choose the topic. I decided to ask my Guides for the topic, and guidance on the words. It is written in my “voice”, but with many words given to me by them. I usually write in this manner. In this case, it is also intended to provide guidance to a friend who is currently uncertain in her path. A note on that: sometimes we need to float along for a bit to disconnect and decompress from our prior life path. Becky, you already know the answers in your heart, you just needed confirmation and validation.
