Nature ‘Bound’

Published February 7, 2019 by tindertender

Before me was a massive tree. Around this tree were chains, this way and that, criss-crossing and in knots. This tree was heavily ‘bound’ and forbidden to grow further, it was imprisoned. (Tree of Life).

Earth and Tree, Bound

Someone(s) have cast a spell, and have actually bound the earth and its forests from being prosperous, or bountiful.

Many Wiccans of the world love the earth and all of its elements. These elements are needed for many of their practices. There are dark forces who would have the earth destroyed.

Wiccans, Pagans, Shamans, Magicians, Alchemists, Visualizers … Creators and Change Makers … if you see truth in this vision which woke me, I urge you to work towards undoing that which has been done to hinder the well-being and health of the earth and its forests … Life. Without the trees, life is nothing.

I have faith in the goodness of this world and its people. I believe that positive intention and opposing force applied in love for this earth and all life, poured forth into this ‘binding’, can and will undo that which has been done.

I am certain that all people have within them the ability to ‘visualize’. It is clear to me that most of humanity actually love this planet and all life upon it, while there are fewer who remain in shadow doing what they can to ensure the planets demise, along with all life dwelling here.

Even if you are new to visualization, I encourage you to see this bound tree, this massive old growth in chains, and see it set free, released, to flourish.

Like A Phoenix

Like a phoenix,
be willing to burn up in the ashes of the little
self so the true Self can fly free.
Consider how many lifetimes it’s taken you to
become tired of this drama you’ve projected and
see that others may not be ready to give it up yet.
Understand that at one time,
you were not who you are today.
Extend the mercy of that understanding to others.
Know that while your love is growing others are
becoming mired more deeply in fear and hate.
Be compassionate. Rather than growing,

it’s more accurate to say that we are removing
everything that has been hiding our natural glory.
Change/growth means constantly becoming
more in tune with your true Self;
polishing the diamond that you already
are so your sparkle can be seen.

True Love Needs No Coaxing

Published December 4, 2018 by tindertender

I love many of the old love songs from the 70’s, they are my favorite. One thing I notice about them is they are singing of the need to convince someone of the love in their heart. I suppose this was the beginning (or perhaps the 60’s) of the shifting of love.

It seems the more we try to cling to love, the quicker it slips through the fingers. Love cannot be held, owned, possessed or controlled. Love must be set free, acknowledged for its power, and honored when it presents itself, in all forms, and also released when it’s purpose in our life (or the others) is complete.

Often when someone professes love they are laughed at, or outright attacked. Love is gentle, it is kind, it is open and free. There IS a force influencing this world to tear it down. The unconscious person flows with this attempt and acts upon it. It is no surprise that barriers have been erected to protect the heart.

I have been fortunate to love deeply four times in this life. Every time when it came to end, I was crushed … absolutely crushed. The final two times rendered me useless for the world for a time. The last especially … my mind disintegrated.

Rebuilding self I understand now that love flows, just as the shadow forms around everything, love is also intertwined there. It is a dance many call heartache. The heart aches with pure joy, and it aches when that joy decreases, or morphs into a new appearance. It is our concept of what love should be that causes this, for when it does not match our ideals, this is when the pain comes.

Love can last for short, or long times. When it stops flowing for us we tend to cling to it. The fact that love cannot be bound, is free, and moves whether we wish for it to or not often leads to pain. People have this habit of trying to force things, only making the pain worse. They forget why they loved, and it becomes anger, even hate. Rather than honoring loves flow they lay claim to it and retaliate when it is discovered to have grown wings.

It is thought that love is obligated to oblige the heart of others. Love is not obligated to anything but flow, to giving freely. I am not talking about being promiscuous or loosey goosey, but becoming part of this flow which is free.

It is a pity that love has actually come down to the physical involvement: sex. Sex is not love, it is something that accompanies it. Yet love exists even when sex is not involved. Love is so simple it is hard to understand. Humanity has complicated it with rules and stipulations. This is another one of those things that has become bastardized in this time.

There is coming a return to love, true love. Love owes us nothing, love is something we grow in our hearts until over flowing … this is how it enters the world, yet many people are looking to fill their cups from outside sources and are left wanting, every time.

Loosen up. You will begin to see the flow and a gratefulness will fill your heart when it flows your way, and you will be grateful for the next person who experiences that love which has touched you, knowing what a blessing it truly is. You will be happy for them, you will be happy you’ve had the experience, and you will be happy for the person who is sharing love with the world.

You will recognize that because love is no longer being poured into you from an outside source does not mean you are empty of love. The love within you is amplified by these gifts, and you can continue to grow your sweet garden of love yourself. Someone will come along that joins you again, and again, and again … it does not mean there will be sex involved, it means you will know what true love is, and participate in its advancement in the world.

Beautiful, whole, and free.

What Are You Made Of?

Published October 12, 2018 by tindertender

For us to find the beginnings of true peace and to extend a compassionate hand to others, we must start with compassion for ourselves. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Compassion for another’s situation is important. Consider another persons point of view and choose connection rather than separation.

It’s time to think big. You are a star in your own right. There are unlimited possibilities. It is fine not to know every detail before proceeding. Mystery is a natural part of life. Share the infinite and expand accordingly. Think big and set positive intentions.

You are creative in every way. There are no barriers to constant, consistent creation. Allow yourself to create in joy, not because of pressure. Connect more deeply with the earth.

Do not give up; there is hope yet. Hope is a life changing emotion. Without it, people literally die. It is important to understand that hope requires some action. If we decide to co-create with our chosen deities and truly have faith in this process, we will not need to ask for a miracle, because we are working toward what we want with assistance. It is important not to just hope for change but to hope from a place of good intention, and to act.

Allow what you no longer need to be destroyed or reduced. Build your emotional authenticity. We aren’t always taught how to deal with sadness, anger, depression, or even jealousy, but they aren’t strange or unnatural emotions. In fact, everyone feels them at some point or another, but it is how we express them that makes the difference. In accepting these emotions and expressing them in a healthy way, we are able to release them and move on.

We are all irresistible in our own ways. Enjoyment is a natural part of life. Center yourself and be confident among chaos. External beauty is not enough ~ it is confidence that truly creates beauty.

Justice will be done for the good of all. Take responsibility for your actions. The chaos in life will end; natural order will be restored.

You are enough. Build your self-esteem from the inside out. It’s your turn to shine! Be the sunshine in your own life! If your strong, healthy self-esteem tips over into arrogance or narcissism, it is not true balance. In this world full of celebrities who are famous just for being famous, it is not surprising that many people believe that self-esteem and self-worth come from the outside in, from the admiration of others. Take the admiring people away, and if there is no solid core of self-worth, there is little left.

Trust that you have enough. Ask and you will receive. It is time to prune back the dead wood in order to grow. Nourish yourself and the earth. When we struggle to let go, we may feel stagnant for a time. When circumstances seem grim, we can catastrophize what is going wrong and easily overlook the things in our lives that are doing well. Sometimes things need to clear out to make room for another. Tough decisions need to be made at times. If brave enough to leave behind that which no longer serves highest good and move naturally, freely, in the direction we really want to go, the fruit of our labors is wildly born.

It is time for change, and it will be positive. Respect your own natural cycle. Be mindful of seasonal changes and go with the flow taking these into account in your diet and activity level. Life cycles are natural. There are times to feel introverted and extroverted, energetic and restful, happy and sad ~ none of these is better than the other. Take time to connect with your personal cycles and you can expect to reap many benefits.

Don’t expect yourself to be happy just because others are, or ready for the same steps at the same time. Let your body and mind experience your life naturally and without expectation based on someone else’s cycles. Pressuring yourself or others to want the same things at the same time isn’t healthy or respectful to your true self.

Are you crazy? No … you’re experiencing the cycle of your life, unique, and yet similar to all other life. It will be easier should you embrace these cycles, rather than fight them, or try to alter them to conform with others that you may feel are more ‘normal’. There is nothing more ‘normal’ than your own cycle and rhythm, embrace it … in all it’s pain and glory. This is your dance. Honor it.

 

Self Preservation Amidst Manipulation

Published June 1, 2018 by tindertender

There are those who feel the need to make “I Am” statements for others. Some will never stop and the only way to end the cycle is to step away from them, to stop listening to them as they describe “who you are”.

Often these descriptions are only a reflection of themselves. There is the attempt, and perhaps even habit, of deflection and gas lighting.

This is particularly difficult if a person has a parent who has always behaved in this manner. Confusion sets in to the young mind and they find themselves in traumatic situations, never understanding why they feel so bad, sure they must deserve crap every time it shows up.

This is not so … it is only a method of controlling others. The shame and self loathing was implanted in the mind and simply is not true.

It is hard to shed these stories that have been embedded in the psyche. It is also absolutely necessary if there is to be a halting of the pattern, and something beautiful and peaceful created.

For many, there is little time to make change. There may not be anyone at all to share these creations with … yet. The mind must remain focused.

Walk away, stand your ground. This drama belongs to someone else. The peace you long for is in you, it IS you. For some reason or other there will always be someone attempting to douse your light … do not let it be … there is too little time to waste trying to please those who thrive on chaos.

The only person who should be allowed to make descriptions of who you are is y.o.u. These things coming from a source thriving in chaos and manipulation are false and should never be taken to heart.

It is not easy to love ones self after a life time of programming to the contrary. Gift yourself this wonderful action, and let everything else go.

We SeeYou’re an addiction that must be dropped, forgotten and left behind. You’ve embedded yourself so far into the psyche of humanity.

New beginnings are on the horizon, even while you plan on taking over completely. Your grip is loosening, even while you feel it tighten. Birthing in the minds of people are ideas and methods for eliminating this feeding you have been doing, this ruining of connection, even as you ‘sell’ your point on providing ‘more’ connection.

You are the epitome of a scam artist, and you are seen.

Ties That Tug

Spirit Man
In dreams an effort is sometimes made to diminish hope, to strip joy from the mind. The closer one comes to realizing that choosing to be happy is easy, in comes a dream with some sinister act in the attempt to convince it is not. Whether in conscious life, or in dreaming, the reality is that power is within choice and as recently affirmed, in the 100% commitment to release of that which holds us in pain cycle.

When a person who has an alcohol dependency decides not to drink any longer, there will be dreams, called using dreams, that arise. Many at first, over time they lessen and eventually go away entirely. This is the subconscious mind reminding of the matter, tempting the return to destructive behaviors. This is so of all chemical abuses.

The same is true of negativity addiction, we all have this issue. Most is an inside personal bashing of self. Breaking this habit requires effort, it took years to train for it and it can be found embedded in the deepest recesses of mind.

Spirit woman

I am relieved to know that it is quite easy to step away. It can be difficult to believe, so much of time is focused on suffering. In the past it was made clear and I believed it, yet this negativity lays traps everywhere and it is tempting to fall into the snare, although one would never call it a temptation, not unless they really saw the situation.

To remain aware of this and consistently choose to step away from that which will entangle the mind into this pain cycle is key … called the key to eternal bliss …

… thank you friend for pointing this out.

I am reminded that 100% commitment to joy is all that need be done, and I walk away from the cycle once more.

Underlying all of this is a pureness born with, that which we entered life with, before it was manipulated. It is still there waiting to be reclaimed. A person will understand their true strength when they are able to walk away from diminishing behavior and self inflicted pain and return to love. I say self inflicted for nothing has power over us but for what we give it.

Power of choice is inherent strength,
And it belongs to all people.
