We All Do It

future dreaming.jpg
All people live life while trying to determine future events. We walk around dreaming up scenarios for this and for that, imagining all different possibilities. No one knows for certain what will happen to them, or to anyone for that matter, yet try to figure it out anyhow.

A waste of precious energies … rather than spending time on the here and now, so much of thought is spent on these waking ‘dreams’. Lured here by others who tell us “you have no idea what is going to happen …”. They are right, and rather than allow them to lead thought down a road of guessing, delve deep into a subject in the present moment.

The future is not a threat. It is a field of limitless possibilities. All too easy it is, to get trapped in a box of fear, shrinking when thinking of possible hazards. It amazes me how the mind always attempts to go there, rather than positive results which could be, when appropriate actions are put into place.

Paranoia, fear, negative expectation … whatever you call it, it is theft in action, a robbery of possible joy which can be created now.

Every human has the ability to gather these emotions, these energetic impulses, and re-apply them to something else, somewhere else. For instance, if fear or anger crop up, start counting the things in which you are grateful for … the air, water, music, poetry, breathing, food, flowers, etc. There is so much to be grateful for … as this list grows in your mind, you’ll find a shift takes place. Now fear and anger shrink, and hope and beauty grow, all due to your conscious application of thought.

This power is yours, always has been. No one is subject to anything … the power of the mind can transport a person anywhere. So yes, while I have no idea what is going to happen to me, I dream of peaceful tomorrows, and joy filled todays. I will never give up on that thought, it will never be replaced by gloom … for this is what I wish to create, and with every breath I take, I will be working toward that today, and toward that tomorrow.

The Team

Team of One

As a youngster in school we had sports. Instructor would call out captains for the two sides who would then call out their pick for their team, one row on one side, one row on the other, huddling together as the team grew to make a group decision when their next choice came. Always, every time, I would be the last one called. No one wanted me on their team. It really hurts to be that one.

In the unseen realm there are others who watch, they determine who is who. The only difference here from before is they are unseen, and they can hear the inner workings of all mankind. It’s not about whether you play sports well, but about how sturdy the mind, how gentle the heart, how strong the will. The test is in the capacity to endure, yet maintain compassion.

For so long no one wanted me as a team member, today, I expect the same. No matter what I will continue to try, not to please others, but to test myself. Team of one, holding my own, wearing a smile that is genuine. For in trying, I have given my all, and am quite satisfied with just that. No one else need confirm or deny, whether seen or unseen, my ability … they are free to think what they like … and so am I. We are connected, anyway.

Surprise Adventure

Published January 14, 2018 by tindertender

Narrow-PassageCoasting through the star studded sky, she comes upon a male. She laughs, comfortable and so happy. She looks to the invisible floor where a hole opens and she sees a trail, in a green meadow of tall grasses, on the edge of a forest. She sees two very large boulders, face to face. Where they meet is a flat edge leaving no more than 3 feet of space between. She says with excitement, “Let’s go for a walk down there!”, and so she goes, the only possible way … through the human womb.

Upon arrival, she forgets all about wishing for this walk, tempted by the absolute beauty. She lives her life, never quite fitting in, always feeling there should be so much more. She becomes lonely, hurt after hurt has drained her, stripping away her joy. After a time, her life becomes dark, confused, utterly painful, she loses her mind.

She begins to see more clearly once the fright passes. She sees the darkness signified by the boulder on the left. She sees those cheering and wanting her to make it out to the other side, wanting to come too, they are signified by the boulder on the right.

The connection has been made.
She remembers joy.
She remembered asking to come here.
She understood, finally, there IS the other side.

The Sleeping Giant

Inner PowerShe walked beside her, listening as she was being verbally attacked. She felt her blood turning within and then … something snapped. She leaned into the verbal spewing, it seemed she grew 3 inches, shoulders broadening. The eyes of the one spraying poison from her mouth widened, she became silent.

This strange and terrifying energy is ‘in check’ most of life, never exploding in an effort to do harm, yet it is available for use in the need of defense.

He began the beating, and growing tired of this repetitive mess she retaliated. She threw everything she had into letting him know this was not going to be tolerated any longer, he ran from her as she beat him about the head and neck with her stick. He never thought he would bear witness to this wild defense, he was taken aback, this tough man. Witnesses told her of it afterward, she had no memory of it.

This world is full of those who give no mind to what they put into it, they take and take, they harm and continue, as long as no one stops them. The intensity of their venom grows stronger as the masses are led to believe they must be silent, that they somehow deserve it, that it is their lot in life to be abused.

She found herself alone, after all the energy she poured into helping another receive what was needed. She spilled her life force so thoroughly that she was completely depleted. Even after all was said and done, he could not stay. He left her to pick up the pieces of what remained of a fragmented self, to put it back together. One trauma after another occurred and she wondered what it all meant. Slowly, she began to understand that she needed to put herself first. She knew then, that self care is not selfish.

Sleeping GiantOur best friend is the sleeping giant within our core. The innermost portion of our being is so large. Perhaps you have said it yourself, “I am larger than life!” Many of us have stated this, as though it is an embedded bit of knowledge, a truth, that we know for certain. This majesty which is us waits to be recognized, not with arrogance, but to be embraced with the authority we possess already.

There are those who have worked very hard at maintaining a fear based, pain related society. They plan, and then carry out agendas which are shocking and spark outrage, followed by pleas of the people to have more of their rights taken … shrinking the already constricting cages they dwell in. They manipulate the minds of folks and make them believe they actually want to live within these bonds.

If only you knew how great you are. If only you would sit in stillness for a time and feel the blood pulse through your veins. If only you would notice the power of this life force within you. You would then know that you need not fight for anything, for you already have everything you need.

Freedom ~ Breaking The Binds

Silence isn't empty

In the beginning humanity lived with a pure heart, joy filled and kind. In naivete they trusted and fell into that which causes unsettling emotions, predicaments arose which stripped them of surety and peace. As time continued, these defensive habits, practiced and utilized in order to form a barrier of perceived protection, were taught to others, ‘improved’ upon, the wall between each individual growing ever thicker.

Soon, people peered at each other with a paranoid fear, assuming that whoever they came into contact with had the intention of harming them. Their shields would raise and they would close off from them, staying in the dream they created within their own minds.

When they closed off, living decidedly in fear, they also closed off all possibility of love reaching them, they became trapped in an invisible cage. This cage, filled with pain and fear prohibits them from coming into the fullness of their being. They are afraid of being vulnerable, they are afraid of being hurt, they no longer take risks.

This mess we find ourselves in is stifling, yet it is still possible to break free from the bindings … we need no key, we need no permission, it is our right and all we must do is choose it.

Great courage is found in the hearts that are willing to stand in vulnerability. It is true that there will be those who throw invisible darts and attempt to get you to shrink, to retreat into the little cage once again. But you remember … you remember that joy is outside of these walls, you remember that there is true love waiting for you here. You have missed it so much, and you now know that only you are preventing the truth of it, and the experience of its reality.

And so you commit to feeling the pain, you know it well. You commit to it, for you know that on the other side is limitless love, and until you wade through that which causes suffering, you will not find it.

Your courage is commendable, for in your brave endeavors you show others how to unleash that which binds them. You provide hope as you present a path of release. You assist the world on its journey back to freedom, you grow compassionate understanding and the ability to rise, and to assist others in rising, with every step you take.

Cycle Of Pain

Published November 3, 2017 by tindertender

broken heartThe smell of a “too hot” cast iron skillet is pretty awful, I thought it was the worst of the day. I went to bed and my dogs decided I only needed 12″ of the mattress to sleep on, so I got up. That topped the cast iron “too hot” smell. But then … a complete stranger living with the pain of ancestors trauma decided to take out hatred and anger on me for no reason, insinuating I must be putrid. This is the icing on the evenings cake, and it is sad, for there are many hearts who are in the grip of this horrible pain, and the only solution they have to deal with it is lashing out and blaming others … others who had no part in the history made.

We are in the midst of creating history this very moment. To make this tale a good one, we must stop with the continuation of the old stories, the old experiences, we must build a new life which starts from square one. Out with the old, in with the new.

It is scary, for this pain has become the only friend some people have. For many years it kept me company, and anger was there too. I have had my fill of these two, they do not belong in the world I live in now, nor are they invited into my future.

Hurt people hurt others, until they decide they have had enough.

My hope is that it becomes easier for us all to accept the credit we deserve for the energies we put into the world. Healing the old stories in our personal lives will assist the ancestors in their own release … if this is something you can relate to. The cycle must end somewhere, and it will … whether we determine the change, or are given it.

Step Into Power

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
     ~R. Buckminster Fuller

“We cannot be sovereign if we do not hold ourselves in the highest esteem, which we means we love, honor, and respect ourselves unconditionally.”
     ~ Jennifer Hoffman

As creator beings we have the power to alter the futures path … currently, it doesn’t look so great, however, within you, there IS greatness. 

Every one of us walking the planet loves life. Even when we are in our worst despair, we still love life, for we choose to suffer, rather than leave. Now, what if we decided that suffering is no longer an option? What if we decide that in order to change, we begin by altering our own reality … by taking a course, for instance …

“You are going to learn super fine and powerful tools to maintain your own energy economy. That’s very stimulating for your health and well-being.

You’ll find that you really get into your strength and you get a sharper image of what life actually content and the choices you actually have.

Society has shown us that we have much less freedom than we actually have, and when it comes to shove, it is all for itself.

From 5 November, you will experience how to grow from equality and freedom. You’re not alone in this, but you’ll always be able to fall back on people who are in a similar process like you.

We have a special group of people rising freely regularly updates and discussed new methods.”

People Rising Freely!
