Morning: Today is a day to focus on the strength that I must have in order to do what I need to do. There are many kinds of strength ~ strength of character, the strength of my body, the strength of my beliefs. I can be called on at any time to use one or all of them. I can be strong when I need to be, and use my strength to protect, to defend, to withstand. I can use all of my strengths today, wisely and meaningfully, as and when I need to.
Evening: I know that I did my best today to focus on strength in all its forms. Tonight I rest knowing that when I needed to, I did my utmost to use my strength of body, mind and spirit.
Be bold, and mighty forces will aid you. Take actions. Good luck favors the brave.
Today I will start a new journey. I will not wait until everything is just right. I know there will always be challenges, obstacles, and imperfect conditions. So what! I will get started now. With each step I will grow stronger, more skilled, and more confident. I will take a risk and I will succeed.
Pay attention to the subtleties. Look with new eyes. There are signs and omens everywhere.
Today I will open my eyes and acknowledge a deeper truth. I will pay attention to the omens that Spirit sends and receive the message. Every sign I need is here to guide and direct me. I will not be deceived. I am now excited and ready to welcome the miracles life has to offer.
We are all becoming. Surrender to your changes. Release your fear. Trust this powerful process.
Today I remember the infinite rhythm of life. I will not be afraid of the darkness for it is always followed by the light. I will not be surprised when the light seems to fade for it is just a part of the process. I know life is a circle of birth, death, and rebirth. I will not fear. I will embrace all that I am becoming and welcome change.
Reading from the deck “Magical Times” Empowerment Cards, created by Jody
I did many things. All that I embodied, I teach in woman on fire. One thing I did was I started hanging out with people that made me uncomfortable with how happy they were.
Not people who wanted something from me. Not people who distracted me awhile from my own shit, by always having a bigger catastrophe.
I started being with people who dwelled in possibility.
Who had no limit to the fun they had in their lives. To the love.
No unending pain. No sob story. Just ease.
They treated me well, which made me feel on edge. I was no longer being used by others, heavily leaned on, my boundaries weren’t always being obliterated by an immediate need of someone else.
Could I trust that? Did I want that?
I did not feel worthy.
I thought it was only a matter of time until they realized I was full of shit. I was some shaken broken being.
There was no passive aggressiveness.
So I was either bored, uncomfortable, or a little of both.
It was incredibly confronting.
Pretty soon they would realize I was NOT one of them. I was, “The Other.”
Depressed. Trauma in my background. Confusion. Self-esteem was shaky.
But they did not see that in me.
They saw and loved my essence. They helped me begin to trust myself. Trust them.
I forced myself out of the house. Into the hearts and lives of others.
I forced myself to get out of my head, which was very frightening in the early stages of depression.
To grow, you must sit with the discomfort of being with powerful people.
People who are not sad all the time.
People who are not living in regret.
People who embrace who they are and speak up.
People who are not apologetic about what is healthiest for them.
People who when they don’t like something, tell you to your face.
People who are CREATING their lives instead of reacting to their lives. Showing you it’s truly possible to do the impossible.
There will be plenty of people in arrested development:
trying to smoke
complain away their lives.
You cannot surround yourself with them.
You get to be with ones that can make you jealous by how much they decide they get to have.
In woman on fire we use jealousy as a tool for intimacy. We name it, claim it, so it doesn’t get in the way. It actually becomes a GIFT to the person receiving it. What is possible when we all are showing up fully is more good than we ever thought possible.
To letting in the good. You don’t have to push it away anymore.
Question: Do spirits have any influence on our thoughts and actions?
Answer: In this regard, their influence is much greater than you would believe, for very frequently it is they who drive you.
Question: Do we have thoughts that are our own, and others that are suggested to us?
Answer: Your soul is a spirit who thinks on its own, but you must have noticed that many thoughts occur to you all at the same time, regarding the same subject, and they frequently contradict one another. Well then, in that you have a combination of your own ideas and ours, and this is what makes you confused, as you have different ideas in your mind, fighting one another.
Question: How can we distinguish between our own thoughts and those that are suggested to us?
Answer: When a thought is suggested to you, it is like a voice speaking to you. Your own thoughts are usually those that occur first. But in any case, there is not much to gain from such a distinction, and it is often more useful not to know about it, as then you act more freely. If you make the right decision, you do so more spontaneously, if you choose the wrong path, you have greater responsibility.
The Spirits’ Book, by Allen Kardec, Chapter 9, Part 2, 459, 460, 461
The influence from the “unseen” is very real. Most people do not hear them. They recognize them as their own personal thought forms … this is not the case.
Humanity has been, and continues to be, tested, or should I say “tempted”. And when you succumb to this suggested failing, they punish you for it,accept zero responsibility for the suffering they intentionally attempted, and have created, in your world, in your mind.
Horseshoe crab blood is key to making a COVID-19 vaccine—but the ecosystem may suffer.
Every year, pharmaceutical companies round up half a million Atlantic horseshoe crabs, bleed them, and return them to the ocean— after which many will die. This practice, combined with overharvesting of the crabs for fishing bait, has caused a decline in the species in the region in the past few decades.
NO!!!!!!! Dammit! Human life is valued but not over and above all other life. Stop practicing destruction.
Terrorists of the planet …
Harming an abundance of life …
In the name of Health and Safety.
Choke on your manipulation agenda you evil ones, pretending to be like us … Human caretakers of this world.
Morning: Today is a day to focus on the thoughts, ideas, and actions that contribute to my inner peace. I can deal with the winds of change only if I am at peace within myself. Today I banish all thoughts and actions that create disharmony. I am calm, physically and emotionally. Today, I radiate peace.
Evening: I know that I did my best today to focus on peace and calm. Tonight I rest knowing that my mind and spirit are peaceful. I can rest with a peaceful mind and face a new day tomorrow.
They used to say, “Don’t get your hopes up too high, you may be disappointed.” In other words, “Don’t put too much faith in anything, it may never happen.”
So we learn to immediately question people, their motives, their ability, their integrity. And then we begin to question ourselves … why not? Everyone else does.
Things have gone rigid and no longer flow.
The word acceptance has been removed for many in this walk, other than the word itself.
We are suspicious, our trust in many cases, broken. Even the trust we say we hold in ourselves … after all … look what experiences we lined up! Whew!
We discover we have choices. For the first time it seems clear, obvious almost, and we ask ourselves why we would choose to put ourselves in certain situations … for years … just barely moving along, stagnant in most areas.
Yet still, we listen to those outside of us, telling us about our ‘faults’, reminding us that we are not perfect, and in their book, unworthy.
We think, what?!?!?
Perhaps at this point we begin to note that we’d rather listen to our own perceptions and judgement of self.
We recognize another’s voice when negative thoughts travels through our mind … the memory of it stuck there like a broken record, playing … and playing … so often we may not even be aware of it any longer, until we are and we ask ourself, how long has this been going on?
We tell ourself that a decade old memory accompanied by pain that we never dealt with will no longer have lease in our life. We begin to shed … like a snake, and it’s messy. We may detest the process thinking it disgusting, or at the very least, uncomely.
Judgement comes and we sink, and then we recognize the self sabotage. We want to kick our self but understand we can no longer do that. So we are gentle with our self. We understand the situation like no other, and we love our self through the process, through the release.
Or not … not quite yet.
Perhaps we haven’t felt the rawness of it fully enough to gain that push forward. Maybe we are so accustomed to it, life without it seems … impossible?
